Fair use rationale for Image:Army-navygame.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Army-navygame.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

References[edit]

There is a note in the References section that I suggest to be removed (It seems apparent the reference is verifying the Army-Navy game and, upon further research, the 1995 game specifically):

Passing along a request that someone consider adding a note about the apparent annual tradition of the West Point marathon team running the game ball to the game, [1] and other results at [2] appear to confirm it clearly enough. I wasn't quite sure if folks would think it belonged, or if so, precisely where, so I leave the information in your hands. Cheers, --j⚛e deckertalk 04:50, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Making a request to correct the table of number of victories in Philadelphia? The table listing games played by location does not add up to the total number of games played (and it is difficult to count how many games are in Philadelphia).

Game History Table![edit]

Someone needs to change it back to the way the table used to look. With Navy Blue with Gold Print. And Army being Gold with Black print! This was mush easier to read, the current version is terrible and hard to read!--Subman758 (talk) 02:55, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

@Subman758: I've changed the Army to the gold background and black font, but kept the Navy using the Navy blue with white font due to WP:CONTRAST. Thanks, Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 04:58, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Discussion of common name of athletic teams of the United States Military Academy[edit]

The common name of the athletics teams of the United States Military Academy is now the Army West Point Black Knights. See:

http://www.ncaa.com/amp/news/ncaa/article/2015-04-14/army-west-point-unveils-new-brand-identity-logo-athletic-teams

http://patriotleague.org/standings.aspx?path=mbball

https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/teams/page/ARMY/army-west-point-black-knights/

Quoting the NCAA on the rebranding: "While a new primary logo has been established, Army West Point will continue to use Black Knights as a nickname." According to the Academy’s website, the trademarked primary name is "Army West Point", and the nickname (also trademarked) continues to be "Black Knights". The game is still called the Army-Navy game, and announcers are still using "Army", "Black Knights", and sometimes "Cadets" interchangeably. Since "Midshipmen" is also a nickname, we should either leave the info box as is (preferable for non-US readers, I think) or remove Army and Navy from the legends underneath the respective logo. Go Army, beat Navy. Space4Time3Continuum2x (talk) 16:05, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Not sure what the info box has to do with anything. That hasn't changed. And your comment doesn't make sense. What is official, in the link that you provided, is that the school's athletic team names are now Army West Point and it now has two official nicknames (Black Knights and Cadets). That is what is now reflected in the parenthetical. The parenthetical is now accurate and does not violate Wikipedia common name policy for article title. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 3665047379b (talkcontribs) 05:26, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
