On Friday, the Nashville Predators put out a tweet asking if the fans wanted to name the jumbotron a “Predsy” name, but Preds Twitter had another idea.
It at 6:09 PM (EST) when Peter Newsom (@SincerelyPeter) replied to the tweet by the Nashville Predators twitter page with “I vote Jeff” and the rest of the community followed.
It spawned a ton of replies, rallying for the Predators to name their new jumbotron Jeff, with an overwhelming outcry from throughout the community.
From a picture of Sidney Crosby holding up a sign that says “The Preds should name their scoreboard Jeff” (created by @NSHHouseCats) to a gif of people running from a herd of sheep with the word “Jeff” popping up on top of them (created by @tnenforcer), the community had a lot of creative ways to show their desire for the team to name the jumbotron Jeff.

Nashville Predators fans with the name Jeff have had extra fun with this movement as well.
One Jeff Middleton (@jjmid04) replied “What is this? Something about being a scoreboard?” while Jeff Lyons (@Jeff_Lyons) replied to one of our tweets about the movement saying “I really support this”.
It was a movement the entire community could get behind, and honestly, the Nashville Predators should answer their fans public outcry and name their scoreboard Jeff.
It is rare to see a team’s fan base come together and work together to make their team do something, which I haven’t seen since New York Islanders fans tracked a flight in order to see if they landed Matt Duchene at the 2016 Trade Deadline or started an entire billboard campaign to get Garth Snow fired.
Surely, if the Nashville Predators live up to their word, this movement could be one of the most hilarious movements by a team’s fan base in NHL History, a truly remarkable moment to look back on as fans look up at Jeff when the team takes the ice at Bridgestone Arena.
