LA Kings blame Taylor Swift banner for their failure will cover it during games By Brennin Weiswerda  0 Comment

While Staples Center president Lee Zeidman told the Times there are no plans to remove the banner, he said the decision to cover it up during Kings games was made "solely by the team".

Taylor Swift's banner at Staples Center isn't coming down but it will no longer be seen during Kings home games. And this being Los Angeles, the indoor arena also opted to put up another banner, too, and this one REALLY doesn't sit well with Kings fans! In August 2015 she held a record 16 sold-out performances in the Staples Center, and an (admittedly, not very aesthetically pleasing) banner was hung in her honor.

After going 1-2 on three road trips to start the season, the Kings managed a 7-4 win over the Predators in their first game on home ice this season and are officially 1-0 in L.A. with the banner covered up. It's a banner! Who cares???

Staples Center president Lee Zeidman said there are no plans to remove the banner and the decision to cover it during Kings games was made exclusively by the team.

He and his three German Shepherds were headed to their auto at Meyer Park in Spring, Texas , when lightning struck Coreas' feet. But Mr Hart was convinced Mr Coreas wasn't going to wake up. "The whole front of his shirt was burned", Hart told Storyful.

He added, "We didn't see an issue in covering it for our games and in fact see it as an opportunity to show our fans that we hear them".

The Kings have chose to cover the pop star's "most sold-out performances" banner for their home games this season, amid speculation the tarp has cursed the organization, who last won the Stanley Cup in 2014. It's hanging in the rafters next to Lakers banners and retired jerseys.

The Lakers are the arena's only tenants that don't seem to have any problem with the banner, confirming to TMZ this weekend that they don't now cover it up, and they have no plans to do so in the future.
