Red Wings Threaten Legal Action over Use of Logo During Virginia Marches

Detroit Red Wings condemn use of logo by white nationalists at Charlottesville rally

The Detroit Red Wings were quick to denounce right-wing marchers in Virginia using the National Hockey League club's famed spoked winged-wheel logo.

Rally supporters and counterprotesters screamed, chanted, threw punches, hurled water bottles and unleashed chemical sprays on each other Saturday morning.

The Red Wings said their statement would be their only comment on the matter.

Mariners fall to Angels
With one down in the ninth, Trout drew a walk from James Pazos , and Albert Pujols followed with a line drive single to center. It bounced off his glove and skidded into the outfield, allowing Trout to score to give the Angels a 6-5 lead.

"The Detroit Red Wings vehemently disagree with and are not associated in any way with the event taking place today in Charlottesville, Va.", the organization said in a statement put out on social media.

"We are exploring every possible legal action as it pertains to the misuse of our logo during the demonstration", Red Wings Director of Public Relations Todd Beam told For The Win. The group is wholly unrelated to the team and did not receive permission to use the logo. It is not yet evident whether that group was in attendance in Charlottesville.

The protests began Friday night when nationalists converged on the University of Virginia's campus and marched while carrying torches.
