Wizards' Ted Leonsis Says No Announcement On Potential Name Change Coming Soon
Published October 12, 2011
A MAN OF THE PEOPLE: Leonsis wrote on his blog yesterday that some fans "may have noticed last night that we have reprogrammed the main screen in Verizon Center to have new graphics -- some new type faces for print oriented messaging and that we changed the order of the teams to be more consistent with the way media reports scores -- visiting team first at home team, second." Leonsis: "Several folks have resisted the change to the order of teams on the scoreboard and have emailed me to ask if we can go back to Capitals on left side of score board, first, followed by visiting team on right - second. We will consider this change. ... Tell us what needs improving and within reason we are here to help and provide service to you. We want you to be happy!" (TEDSTAKE.com, 10/11).
