Recently, more speculation has grown around the idea of the Nets/Barclays Center people having a desire to re brand the Islanders upon the teams move to Barclays Center like they did to the Nets before the start of this NBA season.
Such speculation has caused great angst in Islander land with one fan actually starting an online petition against the idea and amassing over 1,000 signatures. (You can find a link to the petition below.)
Yesterday, Nets/Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark spoke out on this topic in response to a couple Islander fans and had this to say, "I promise you we will do the right thing. Islanders fans will be happy. I am listening."
If you are unaware, there has been reported desire that Barclays/Nets people want to incorporate black and white into the Islanders color scheme like they did for the Nets.
