“I’ve always cringed when people say they’re going to see the Devils, the merchandise, the paraphernalia is based on the actual demonic devil. Personally, it causes a little bit of an issue with me.”My good buddy Joe Floyd, a life long Devils fan, would not be impressed with Mr. Stanley's actions at all. He may even tell Mr. Stanley, a Baptist deacon, to go straight to Hell, and I agree. Pansies might be a better suited team name for the actual hockey team, but Devils is a good name. It's menacing, strong and says bad ass, just the sort of thing you want from a hockey team.
People that take team names this serious need to relax, the poor children that grow up cheering for the Devils aren't going to turn into satanic goons, intent on destroying all that's good in the world. If everyone took team names this serious, half of the team names in all of sports would have to be renamed. I say leave em, how about you?
