In an interview today with Brian Blessing on Sportsbook Radio, The Creator confirmed the team will be (something) Knights.
We went through with Adidas again last week. We have our colors picked, we have our basic logo picked, it needs some refinement. We have moved some color schemes around, and the team will be something Knights. K-n-i-g-h-t-s. We have the name. The name is trademarked, we have the domain name. That’s all I can say right now. -The Creator
So there you have it, the team will be named, Silver Knights, Desert Knights, or Golden Knights. As for the sweaters?
It almost looks like a steel mesh with another color underneath the steel mesh that brings out that Knight look. These are going to be great looking jerseys. The colors will be reflective of the name. It will have certain colors that will be reflective of the Las Vegas environment, like Red Rock. That red color.
The team name is still expected to be revealed in mid-October.
I don’t think we can make it by Frozen Fury. I don’t think we can get our jerseys, our T-Shirts, hats ready by that point. We want to be prepared to market it and sell products.
Deep down, he still really wanted Black Knights.
It’s not as good as Black Knights, but it’s 99% as good. There was a little too much push back and frankly Army got worried about us using thew name Black Knights and I didn’t want to fight that battle.
He also took a moment to take a direct shot at me.
It won’t be Rat Pack, or what was Ken’s other name, Rat Group,or something?
My other name was Nights by the way. I kind of wish he mentioned the conspiracy theory too, which he completely eviscerated today.
Here is the interview in it’s entirety.
