Will Islanders go black-and-white after move to Brooklyn?
April 18, 2013 12:02 PM
While noting that 70 percent of the Islanders' 5,000 season-ticket holders have said they plan to retain their tickets in some form after the move, Yormark said, “At the same time, we need to introduce the sport and the game to a new fan base here in Brooklyn. How do you connect those dots? I think we're going to have to meet each other somewhere in the middle. The colors black and white are the new badge of honor in Brooklyn. The question is, Can we weave that into their color scheme, and create a connection to the fans here in Brooklyn?"
During a one-on-one interview later in the morning, though, Islanders owner Charles Wang said not to expect an overhaul and that the main color scheme wouldn't change. Where does the truth lie? We'll find out in 2015.
