    Default Gold Swagger...Really?

    Don't get me wrong, I love that the Pacers are doing a Gold-Out. But having the shirts say "Gold Swagger" in big print across the front is kind of weak too me. I think Pacers marketing could have come up with something better than that.

    Gold Swagger just seems like they are trying too hard to be cool. I think Passion Pride Pacers or something would have been better. Does anyone else think they could have come up with something better?

    Doesn't really matter to me though, I will still be cheering my butt off tonight for the Pacers. Let's hope Granger finds his stroke.

    I think this will go over well with the younger crowd. I'm just glad they're giving out t-shirts this round.

    Do the T-Shirts have real flakes of gold in them?

    I think it's ingenious....The Pacers have Swagger and they play with swagger.....

    swag·ger/ˈswagər/
    Verb:
    Walk or behave in a very confident and typically arrogant or aggressive way: "he swaggered along the corridor".

    Swagger definitely embodies the Pacers to me....not the arrogant part, but confident and aggressive....

    I like it, and I wish I was going to the game tonight to get one.


    "Like [Jonathan Bender], AMC's Pacer was supposed to be fitted with a rotary engine--but both rotaries had technical problems late in their development (read: after incurring heavy research costs) that prevented them from seeing the light of day. Of course, both vehicles had plenty of problems that did reach production. The Pacer was a dud in terms of quality, execution and particularly styling. Make your own assessment about its bizarre proportions, but don't miss the one door that's bigger than the other."

    I don't mind it.. It's unique.. Most say something about their team name or something.. This one just has a unique saying.. It's good to be different.

    It's better than "Team is Oklahoma" which was on the front of the Thunder T's last night,

    But you don't have any swagger at all without the arrogance part. That is central to the whole idea. It is not confidence, it is cockiness.

    Count me up as "meh" on the slogan.

    I am looking forward to the visual effect though.

    Anyway, Gold Swagger is better than Gold Swag.

    For those that want one afterwards, I am probably going to auction my extra one off, my fiancee' will probably not fit in her's as she is quite petite and fine.

    Once I have it will post it in the tickets and trade forum later on tonight or tomorrow.

    In my opinion, it really doesn't matter much what it says. The main point of the fans wearing the same color is to create a wall of color in the stands. A wall of gold will be what people see watching the game on tv, and I think it's going to look great.

    Sure, the people who are at the game will take the shirt home and, perhaps, wear it around later. But, I'm excited to see all the gold on tv tonight

    Their shirts are always pretty lame. Game before that it just said "One Team" with a Thunder logo. No ****, I thought they were 2 teams. Or perhaps that was reference to the fact that LA has 2 teams? Hadn't thought of that. Still lame.

    For branding slogan consistency, it should have been

    Front: "In 49 states it's just basketball"

    Back: "But THIS is INDIANA!"

    Oh well, might as well conjure up images of arrogant guys with gold chains for the casual fans.

    I'm sure they just wanted something unique and short that could trend on twitter during, before, and after the game. I don't mind it, not sure if I'll wear it out anywhere besides to a game, but we'll see.
