This is real and it's spectacular twitter.com/LAKings/status…— LA Kings (@LAKings) June 2, 2013
Even though the Los Angeles Kings are the defending Stanley Cup champs, they still get no love from any editor, publisher, online outlet, TV anchor, or news organization. This poll from Yahoo is just the latest example of someone botching the Kings' name and/or logo. At least the Kings Twitter account can keep its sense of humor about it all. Heck, Yahoo even pointed out another KTLA error involving the Kings on Saturday. I tell you, this franchise just gets no respect, no regard at all.
It's a really minor thing I know, but it still sticks with me: NBC is still using purple on the Kings graphics. The Kings retired purple from their color scheme earlier this year, they're silver and black, no more purple anywhere on their uniforms or logo anymore.....
People in LA barely even care about the Dodgers. NHL is a fringe sport on the west coast. Now that the Lakers are long out of the playoffs, the Dodgers are terrible, the Angels aren't very good, the Kings should attract some excitement in the city, but they still don't. People don't give a crap about hockey in this town.
Not trying to make any excuses from them, but when you think of LA sports, you think of Lakers. LA? Lakers! LA? Lakers! Then the Dodgers, then the Clippers, may be throw in a bit of Angels. Am I forgetting anything...? Oh yeah! The LA Raiders.
Here is my respect to them, in fact to all 4 teams! https://twitter.com/HawkEyesArt/status/340976705017626624/photo/1
