    Apparently the climate in Atlanta causes all structures to age twice as fast as in the rest of the country.

    I can't imagine San Diego wants anything to do with the Chargers. Spanos didn't burn the bridge, he blew it up.

    First, for those on here clamoring for a helmet logo.... the team studied this before the last uniform change and the fans were adamant. No logo on the helmet. The PROBLEM was that the team heard "No logo on the helmet" to mean "No logo". As in for merchandise. That's the problem I and many others had with the Browns attempted changes. At least with the '00s Dawg head or the <=B=> logo, was that it looked decent on merchandise. And I loved the few attempts to bring back the Brownie though it was never used thoroughly. The team has been stuck trying to market the Dawg Pound (now the whole stadium is the 'Dawg Pound', but removed the 'good' Dawg Head logo and instead gave us this borderless 'cute' dawg logo that looks like it's the letterhead for the Kids Club newsletter. MANY teams have logos that aren't on the helmets. VIkings have an entire logo yet only horns on the helmet. Bengals have a leaping tiger or head logo, and yet just has stripes on the helmet. Rams and Eagles as well. And colleges all over have plain-sided helmets with identifiable and recognizable logos for merchandise that doesn't need slapped on the helmet. Ohio State's Block O is nowhere to be found on the side of the helmets. And no, the buckeye leaves aren't a logo, either. As for the uniforms, they so badly wanted to update something that when they decided the logo was untouchable, they put all their unbridled effort into the uniforms and did every little sin known to sports. Words everywhere (Cleveland on the chest, Browns on the legs), colored stiching, drop shadow, texture finish on the stripe, extending stripes across different sections of fabric, etc. It might have helped had they PUBLICLY shown the steps they were taking to redesign the uniform and fans could have weighed in long before we reached a finished product we can't change for five years. But, if the Rams can change the pants, we can certainly eliminate the Browns from the pant leg or AT LEAST overlay the stripe colors atop the BROWNS to at least let it blend in a bit more than the singe-color BROWNS we have now. Also, the lack of the orange jersey in use considering it's the one DESIGNED for this set is strange.

    I know this is essentially just a template set, but damn I love NT's new uniforms, it's quite a step up and honestly it's better than some of the Power 5 Nike uniforms, and I can honestly say that for once I enjoy a BFBS set, so props to NT for doing it right in a sea of bad generic and bad custom uniforms.

    Is it a distress signal like an upside down flag? "HELP ME! I'M ON THE CHARGERS"

    Bunch of amateurs. The organization shoots itself in the foot time and time again.

    I'm sure for most people it was devastating that the team left San Diego to go represent another city. They may still look like the same Chargers but they sure aren't San Diego's Chargers anymore. If one of my favorite teams moved away, I guarantee my interest would plummet given they're no longer the "home squad." The players and coaches come and go. The logos may evolve over time. It's that emotional connection knowing that team represents your city that creates that bond. If one of my teams decided 20 years from now that they'd like to move a state away, sure, it wouldn't be a terrible drive to go see a game...but they wouldn't be my city's team and that's all the difference in the world. I'm sure most San Diegans feel the same way.

    The Dome wasn't bad but ATL had to keep up in the Stadiums arms race if they wanted to continue hosting Super Bowls/Final Fours/etc. I'll be the sucker that says this new stadium looks awesome

    No offense, but you really don't understand the situation. As long as the Spanos family owns the Chargers, the majority of San Diegans will no longer have anything to do with them. It doesn't matter if they're playing two hours up the road or on Mars. Bottom line: the Spanii spent the last 33 years fielding a dysfunctional losing franchise (256-272 overall record under Spanos ownership, including the playoffs; 0 rings and only 12 winning seasons) while treating their paying customers like dog :censored: under their shoe. They spent the last 23 years or so slowly packing the moving vans for LA, lying about their desire to stay in town while refusing to ever compromise or put in effort. On top of all that, they spent many years bilking the taxpayers with an unfair ticket guarantee deal that the city only agreed to under the premise that it would keep the Chargers in town forever. Why would you expect San Diegans to keep supporting a family that treated them like crap, screwed over their city and moved their team to a city that didn't want them? Especially when the franchise is such a joke that it's not even worth it anymore?

    I think the simplicity of the B-Football (or a hypothetical C-Football) is part of what makes it work for the Browns. The team's image, for the most part, is all about being simple and going back to the basics . . . right down to the iconic, untouchable blank helmet. Let's go back to 1961 when the Packers logo was introduced, in which case the bolded and deleted text doesn't apply. You just described the Packers G-Oval. Would you feel the same way about that logo if it was stripped of its historical context? I'm genuinely curious . . . not trying to attack you.

    You haven't spent much time in San Diego, have you? There's NO WAY San Diego based fans are sticking with them after all of this.

    Well. We've arrived at the team that inspired this whole thread. The Habs themselves: If you read the spoiler, I hope you enjoyed it . If you didn't here's another one: C&C welcome!

    Whatever they do, they need to figure out which direction their helmet bolts should point. From last night's game:

    *subjectively The elf is too campy for a pro team and the entire dawg pound motif is antiquated. Some manifestation of the B-logo on, say, the color rush shells only would be an absolute home run. I personally prefer the B, but a C in its place isn't bad, either: Maybe even meet in the middle with some type of B/C hybrid:

    I know it was gold, as was the center helmet stripe. 5-14 year old me didn't really make the black and gold connection because Maryland was so predominantly red and white at the time. As a result, I never looked closely enough to realize that it wasn't a faded red. In my defense, TVs were a lot smaller then and newspapers were in black and white. Also, as Exhibit A, I offer the Randy White picture that I posted above, which makes it look much more like a faded red. Also 1969, when the mascot was apparently the red M&M.

    It is so damn funny that their TV initials are LAC. It's too perfect.

    I was dead set on not being a Kings fan during the almost moves to Anaheim, Va Beach, Seattle. Had they moved I probably wouldn't have even watched basketball any longer. There's an inherent connection one has with their local team kind of goes away when that team leaves.
