    They are active duty US Army. When performing demonstrations, they bring cheering crowds to their feet. When performing their other duties, they protect this country (including your ass). "Ninnies" says more about you than any current or former member of the team (I know. I've jumped with a number of them.).

    Not necessarily. Lighten up and maybe un-wad your panties. There's so much within each branch of the miltary, that it's IMPOSSIBLE to keep up with them all. So, yeah... FEW relative to the overall population makes ABSOLUTE sense. I never heard of the Golden Knights, either.... so I don't think more than a few would know about this particular issue... and fewer still would be confused with the name.

    The fact that you are butthurt over a tongue-in-cheek crack at YOUR parachuting, says more about you, than anything else mentioned in this thread. So easily triggered.

    Keep spinning, Twinsie. Maybe you'll convince yourself that you didn't disparage capable active duty personnel.

    Not only have I not heard of them, I also think they should shut it.

    Nobody buys indoor event tickets to watch people jump out of planes.

    Army, Vegas' NHL team fight for 'Golden Knights' trademark
    Really so now the Army is a sport and entertainment entity

    “The public,” the Army asserts in the legal filing, “is likely to be confused as to whether the U.S. Government or the Applicant [Black Knights] controls the quality and nature of the services or endorses or sponsors the Applicant’s services.”

    To that end, the Army stresses that the phrase “Golden Knights” became famous for sporting events long before a Las Vegas-based NHL team with that same name began play in 2017.

    Not the point. Precedence - the US Army demonstration parachute team has had the name for decades. Respect - They're active duty service personnel. You want to side with the Las Vegas hockey team owners and their hired guns who failed to perform due diligence in selecting a name for their team, that's a reflection on you.

    The US Army parachute demonstration team has been jumping into sporting events for decades. They demonstrate excellence and promote the US Army.
