Post EVERYTHING from the press conference here
It begins at 11 am Central Time.
Looking forward to it.
Surreal feeling, it really is.
With that said I need to say keep your heads up Atlanta, you'll have your day again.
It's my birthday. Thank me Winnipeg fans for all my good luck I am supplying you with.
Happy Birthday Sir
Congrats Man. Really, I have to say I am happy for you and Peter out of everyone their.
Too bad it's probably going to be raining all day today, if only they held out one more day it would have been nicer.
Oh well, I get a feeling nothing is going to stop Winnipeg today.
It'll be the biggest party a rainy day's ever seen. Going forward, just think of how you'll feel whenever it rains. You'll close your eyes and look skyward like the warm sun was bathing your face in light. And the smile that you can't suppress will stretch from ear to ear...and every drop of rain will feel like sweet victory. Like vindication. Like life. It'll be completely unlike the tears that streaked down your cheeks over a decade ago.
Congratz to the Peg and it's fans!
Chances they announce a name?
Hoping for Winnipeg Falcons.
I feel really really happy for Peggers.
Good luck, boys.
And if Peg and Van are in the same conference... lol Buff + Luuuuu x 6/year
That might be too close to a slap to Atlanta.
While I'm happy for Winnipeg, sad for the real Thrashers fans in Atlanta. The city never had a chance with bad ownership.
From a Hamiltonian who's been denied a team MANY times... congrats Winnipeg!
Don't EVER let the team leave again... EVER!
I'll be rooting for ya.
Kinda disappointed in working today, Staying up for announcement before getting some sleep before work.
Unreal day for Winnipeg, Someone has to do double the cheering at portage and main/forks to pick up what I can't do.
I would be annoyed if they were named the Jets. Yeah, yeah, that's what a lot of fans want, but they aren't the Jets. The Jets are the Coyotes. That is their history. This is the Thrashers' legacy getting passed on to Winnipeg and it should be a new team name.
The same thing happened with the San Jose Earthquakes in the MLS and it was confusing as hell.
WHAT legacy? LOL They'd be getting a new name. They'd be ditching the Thrashers moniker in lieu of the Jets.
I tend to agree. As nostalgic as the Jet name is, it would almost be inappropriate and a little disrespectful to Atlanta if they just toss out the Atlanta history entirely. The Falcons name would be great though. Like the Senators revival and keeping the bird quota up.
Congrats winnipeg.. I didn't think it would happen, but it did! Now someone please bring back the expos.
Do you consider the Ravens the Browns? In essence, they are, but nobody else really cares.
Thanks for that, shall be watching
