Gee Wiz! The season can't get here fast enough!!!!!!!!!!
"Lafayette being Lafayette" was the main point in both sentences.
The first nothing to do with the occurrence, the second everything to do with the recovery.
The coming together may take different forms from Sandy Hook, to Columbine to Lafayette, but the community gelling has been pretty much universal.
I'm not going to provide links I'd rather appreciate "Lafayette being Lafayette"
Awesome idea for decal
Since the thread has already been derailed.
If the movie theater wants to come back strong, some will stay away, they should call Coach Hud and invite the football team when they open backup. Who would make a better spokesman for the theater, university or city. Imagine the football team going into the theater showing support for our city and Coach Hud on national TV letting everyone know that we will not back down to terror, whether it is home grown or international. I have a feeling the Pentagon would call him to be their spokesman.
-So how do you get this going???? After the movie have a mini pep rally with the fight song etc
So now my A D D is in overdrive!!!
I think it kind of Genius every thing I have that has Louisiana Lafayette Im going to add strong then it will take away from Lafayette.
Going to have to change a lot of common sports phrases in basketball, golf, baseball, football, etc. if people are going to be so easily upset.
Are you saying you won't be able to just grab your balls and go play with them?
Influenced enough that "Lafayette Strong" is what I pictured on the Helmet.
I was thinking after the first couple game announcers would quit mentioning it but viewers would see it every play and have little memory of the background story.
This thread has some truly cringe worthy responses.
The branding will not take a hit. I would be willing to be that any time the stickers will draw attention this season, the commentators will be discussing the tragedy and not the University's naming issue. If anything, it will garner a positive review for the University and just how strong and supportive this community is.
I guess the saying is true though, no good deed goes unpunished.
Come on. Two people of our community were slain in a senseless act. The football team chooses to honor them and this thread ends up as a discussion of how it affects our branding.
I think the whole name thing should take a back seat in this instance.
Just my opinion.
Sorry if I came off as being overly sensitive and politically correct.
