Philips Arena royally pissed me off
I was at the TSO concert last night and noticed something rather subtle that almost made me livid. It's bad enough they sent our hockey team to Winnipeg and let the change the name, but Philips also took down all of the rafter banners - even the NHL All-Star Game banner. You think they'd at least want to keep that one as a source of pride, but nope. All of them. Gone.

Bastards.

It's like they're TRYING to pretend the last decade or so never happened.

I emailed them several times to ask if I could have the banners.... never heard back from them though.

The ASG thanks you for your TSO ticket purchase.

They also painted over the All Star Game mural at the CNN Center entrance of the Arena.

I can buy that the banners are the property of the new owners, but that sucks.

Then again, I won't be going into Philips to spend any money as long as ASG own it, so it's a moot point for me.

As far as they're concerned, it didn't happen. As long as ASG owns 1% of anything in Phillips, I won't be setting foot inside the God damned place.

I don't know that they had REMOVED it, per se, but they did have it curtained off with black curtains such that it wasn't visible.

With TSO's laser show, the concert lasers they use would have been aimed directly at anyone sitting in the 300s, so likely as not, those seats A) Weren't sold for safety reasons, and B) the curtain made a nice backdrop for the laser points and made them look cool.

Not too bothered by the All-Star mural being painted over since Kovy looked really stupid in it(isn't that part of CNN anyway?), but why would they take down the SE Championship banner? What a bunch of fargin' iceholes. Bastages...

Bob Williams, president of the Hawks and Philips Arena, would not address the mural’s removal other than to say to the AJC in an email: “I don’t deem the subject you inquired about to be newsworthy and therefore don’t feel the need to comment on it.”

I believe I speak for everyone on this board when I inform Mr. Williams he now has our permission to go fornicate himself with an iron stick.
