  1. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Done in a different era where they probably never even considered branding and merchandise sales. I also don't see the fans accepting a Seattle HC. Hockey fans aren't necessarily the same as soccer fans.
  2. Welcome to the 90's

    The Voodoo that you do. Roller hockey which might be the most 90's sport ever.
  3. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Perfect name to avoid any trademark disputes, but it's not going to happen and it most certainly should not happen. What might work in another sport, doesn't necessarily mean it works in an another.
  4. Team Color Changes

    Tampa Bay Rays. What they have now is a huge upgrade over the green, which was an upgrade over their original set.
  5. Another new football league, called the Alliance Of American Football, being created to compete with the XFL. Supposedly will start in Feb 2019. Has some big names behind it like Charlie Ebersol, Bill Polian, and Troy Polamalu, and unlike the XFL, already has a TV deal with CBS to show the games on CBS Sports Network. Eight teams will be announced in the next 3 months. I know that its hard to come up with an original name for the league since there's been a couple failed leagues, but Alliance of American Football is a terrible name. Logo is not bad.

    I doubt he knows anything about the name. Somebody on his team that knows something about hockey, or did some research beforehand, probably fed him that line.
  7. Team Color Changes

    NHL: The Anaheim Ducks from their original jade and eggplant to black, copper, orange. Pittsburgh Penguins from double blue to yellow and black. Washington Capitals red, white, and blue to blue, copper, and black, then back again. Phoenix Coyotes black and green to sand and brick. NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers, Sacramento Kings, Toronto Raptors.

    Except for the numbers, I don't see how its better. The white sleeve stripes are over sized. Looks like a bad counterfeit jersey.
  9. NBA Changes 2017-18

    When the NBA expanded to Toronto and Vancouver, there were apparently 3 bids for Toronto. One was the eventually winner and the Raptors were born. One of the other bids was headed by Larry Tanaenbaum. Richard Peddie, worked for Tanaenbaum on the bid. He was on radio today talking a little about how had their bid won, the team would have been called the Thunder. Eventually, Tanaenbaum had bought a piece of Maple Leaf Gardens Ltd, which eventually became MLSE when they bought the Raptors and Peddie became the CEO. My question, would the Thunder have been a better name for the Raptors.

    I don't know where to put this, but I'm watching primetime sports, which is a radio/TV on Sportsnet in Canada. There were 3 bids and had another group won, they would have been named the Thunder, according to former MLSE CEO Richard Peddie. Anyone thinks that would have been a better name for the team?
  11. CONCACAF unveils new official logo

    Surely, there could have been a way to modernize the old logo, which would have been better than what they came up with.
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    There was a miracle last night. The Houston Rockets actually wore white, albeit on the road. I don't follow the NBA, but every time I've seen them on the highlights, they are in red. Allowing teams to wear whichever jersey they want at home is fine, but I think there needs to be a better system so the team isn't always in the same jersey, no matter whether they are on the road or at home. The Lakers is the same thing with always being in yellow. Always seeing them in yellow on the highlights.

    People already hate the ads. It's orange because it keeps with their company's brand. It also makes the ad stick out more which is what you want if you're paying millions for it. For some companies, it might be okay because they are big enough or have logos that are easily recognizable, but I've never heard of 5miles. Might have something to do with me living in Canada.

    Powdered blue and black. I think it's a nice look that would be unique to the league and city.
