Received a message from Mark McCullers on the teams intentions on the name:
"I am meeting with a representative group of supporters tonight. This is one of the things that I wanted to discuss. Our intent is to trademark Nordecke and license it back to the supporters at no cost. It’s simply a measure to protect what you all have done from anyone who may be opportunistic and want to exploit it. We have no intent to commercialize it or anything else, for that matter. Just trying to think ahead and preserve a very good thing."
