No, no I don't.

Have a Hawk deliver the game ball to midfield for the kickoff....and not the one in the outfit.

Why did people bitch when the Sioux logo came off of center ice in 2013? Why was it there in 2001 instead of North Dakota?

Anyone else remember the uproar when the Faison "Interlocked ND" came out and the cataclysm that ensued? 
http://www.undsports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=13500&ATCLID=204768425

There were almost daily letters to the GFH saying it's an atrocity, a travesty, and don't put that < bleep > thing on the ice! 

History: the ultimate recycler. 

 

PS: Spoiler Alert! The Faison Interlocked ND did end up at center ice. ;) 

PPS: REA has had at least three different things (Brien logo, Faison Interlock, Hawk-font wordmark) at center in 17 seasons.

Don't know, don't care. It really isn't something I notice more than once. My atmospheric experience hasn't changed in the last 17 years.

Just would rather not have an ugly logo that we would hopefully be transitioning away from in the next couple years.

The interlocking logo was at center ice at the old Ralph.  But when a new logo was created, in a crazy scheme to "shove it down our throats" the powers that be decided to put it at center ice as well as thousands of other places throughout the arena.

So why's it bother you if you don't notice it?

Remember: the Faison interlock first showed up in fall 2013 and only made it to fall 2017.

So if you only notice a logo not more than once, then what’s the big deal of having a Hawk at center ice?

Or is it three and I'm wrong about last year being (new) Hawk-font. Your picture is the font that came with the Faison Interlock.

Weren’t people a little non accepting of the  Sioux logo at first and then warmed up to it?

Penn State - Some very bad things and Football

USC - Football

UCLA - Men's Basketball and Football

I was a bit afraid that it would re-ignite old name/logo firestorms from the early 80s and late 80s and that bad things might come of it. 

Meh ... what'd I know ... worried about a nothin'-burger, right? ;)

Simply put. It is a terrible logo. Out of this whole logo mess why not accentuate the little bit they got right in the wordmark and font.

They had a lot of stencil on hand for those logos. Must have just ran out when it came to the Hawk logo.

Yes, hopefully the REA management will continue to operate the building past 2030.  It's amazing to me that each year you go and attend your first hockey game it's like the arena is still new.  If Ralph would have turned the arena over to the university after the building was completed I'm not very confident that it would look like it does.  I doubt there would be any funds put away to keep it fresh and new.  With a government entity handling the proceeds over the last 17 years that pool of money would have suffered that same fate as the Social Security Trust Fund.  They'd most likely would have used all the funds to pay the salaries of professors who want the arena tore down.

 

Agreed.

Wow. The logo is going to improve the atmosphere? Take a lap and then shower up.

Yes it will.  Atmosphere has been a huge issue at the Alerus, and what have they been doing to fix that issue?  PUT MORE LOGOS UP!  The one glaring omission is the center of the field, you know, the place that we actually look at while we are at the game or watching it on tv.  The Alerus Center doesn't truly feel like OUR home field.  The lack of a logo has bothered me ever since I stepped foot in the building, and that was before any of this logo business was in the news.  Give me a break... might as well put the Alerus text in the end zones as well, right? 

 

Never mind the Alerus text on the field stretches for 40 years and it's their outdated logo.

And why did these not-for-profits to run the arena get set up? 

Ralph's vision?

Um, ah, no.

The ND Legislature said they wouldn't take a gift building on a campus that didn't have a sustainability plan. The State didn't want to be left paying for maintenance of such a facility. Seeing what's happening with the Little Ralph in TRF right now < gulp > the Legislature might have gotten one right.

What's going on with the little Ralph?

if logos aren’t important why did the Bison insist the Fargodome put the Bison logo at the 50?
