  1. NFL 2018 changes

    We're hung up here on the differences between the NFL's party line story vs. what is plain as day if you use your eyes. Yes, the piece of paper and history books were left in Cleveland. At the same time, you could clearly witness a bunch of players and front office guys load up moving vans and drive 400 miles. You could also clearly see that an expansion draft was held and that a new owner popped up and the new team moved into a new stadium that the current Baltimore Ravens had no role in. Plus, this logo certainly doesn't read "franchise reactivation draft."
  2. Say it ain't so, Joe

    Good news is that US Gymnastics announced that they’re not going to try to collect the fine. If they decide to cover their PR with gasoline and light a match though Kristen Bell and some Twitter brokerage president guy offered into the fund as well.
  3. Say it ain't so, Joe

    You wonder what can be done to MSU. Are there athletic department-wide NCAA punishments? Nasser was a multi-sport trainer there and not just with the football team like at Penn State.
  4. Does this mean that Shane McMahon was president of True North?
  5. MLB changes 2018?

    The Retired Angels are: Jim Fregosi, Nolan Ryan, Rob Carew, Gene Autry, Jimmy Reese, and (universal) Jackie Robinson. The silly thing? Fregosi got his number up there when he was the trade bait to get Ryan in the first place.
  6. MLB changes 2018?

    A crime when it comes to number retirement is that there’s no rumbling of any further Angel retirements. They have a bench coach and former owner up there but nobody from the one team that ever did anything.
  7. Say it ain't so, Joe

    Plus, let’s look at NCAA logic here - you can have a title vacated for one player borrowing a car but not for a team employing a child rapist.
  8. In order to improve the quality of the concepts forum, the following guidelines are now in place: *When commenting on a concept, please use constructive criticism. This goes for both positive and negative opinions. Any replies to concepts that simply state something to the effect of "OMG, this sux!" or "AWESOME!!!11!" that we encounter will be removed. *When posting a concept, please be specific in the title. Don't post a vague, whimsical title that has nothing to do with the concept itself. Mention the name of the team, the sport, if the team exists or not, and what method/program you used to create the concept. By stating that a concept is handdrawn or made in Paint in the title, you will hopefully limit the unfounded criticism that tend to be levied towards the program and not the idea itself. *Before posting a concept, please take some time to truly look at it and see if it's "ready for prime time." If a concept looks like it took five minutes to make, don't post it. There are numerous resources available here, such as fonts and templates, to help make your concept shine. Posting a football jersey concept with Arial numbers isn't going to fly. *Please learn before posting a concept how to post images in a topic. Any concept thread that doesn't actually show a concept will be deleted. Additionally, any concept thread that requests that others make the actual concept will be deleted as well. *Avoid the "teaser image" when starting a thread. Start your thread after your concept is done and include it in the first post. Starting a thread with a "coming soon" type image only bumps current concepts down the page without adding anything new to the forum. If you see anything that violates these guidelines, please report the post and one of us will take a look.
  9. Say it ain't so, Joe

    So, in other words turn the other way... like the entire Penn State fanbase, administration, and coaching staff did... Got it.
  10. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I really do hope that the current Ram head survives the rebrand. It's a great rendering, it hasn't aged, and, selfishly, I don't want my jacket to be outdated.
  11. City/State Color Identities

    With the Chargers in town now I could see a powder blue/navy or royal/athletic gold palette work.
  12. MLB changes 2018?

    And, currently, Hyun Jin Ryu.
  13. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    And, as I saw pointed out on Twitter, Span's line for 2017 was actually better than Longoria...
  14. They’re just getting the Cane players used to Loonies and Toonies.
  15. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Especially when you consider that the medium-market Anaheim baseball team shares a network with the LOS ANGELES Kings and the Ducks share a network with the LOS ANGELES Clippers.
  16. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Hopefully a Seattle team won't do what Foley did and name his team after an inferior of his closest rival. So, maybe not name a team after a fish when the mascot of the team across the border is a carnivorous orca.
  17. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    They're the Mets with one less ring.
  18. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Most of the vocal OC types would argue with your point.
  19. You know... there is one possibility here that wouldn't infringe on Gary's Sun Belt obsession and Canadian export phobia. Vive les Flammes du Québec!
  20. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were 12

    See the fire map. No fires are near downtown, the Thomas Fire is 15 miles from the Rams’ headquarters and the smoke’s being blown over the water. Keep in mind here that when the media panics about LA being on fire that the furthest north point to the furthest south point of LA proper is 45 miles and the metro area is greater than 10,000 square miles.
  21. I think Gary's probably blown so much money on Girls Gone Wild videos over the years that the thought of losing a Sun Belt market at or near a college town makes him dead inside.
  22. Nice night for Kings history. Gaborik - 400 goals, 800 points Kopitar - 500 assists And of course Gabby does it against Minny.
  23. Panic mode down the 5!
  24. The question I have here is if there’s the assumption that New Mexico State pulls an Idaho and gives up on the FBS since they’ll be booted from the Sun Belt after Saturday (unless they beat South Alabama and squeeze in at .500). One possibility for when the WAC finally crumbles? I could see the WCC jumping to 12 by snatching up Seattle and Grand Canyon. Both are religious and they would get the Western Washington and Phoenix markets. I’d consider Cal Baptist an unlikely option except as a numbers replacement for BYU if they give up on the FBS Independent charade.
  25. Tell me about it. BTW, if you need an official BASS correspondent to report on the game-day experience in the desert I can provide that. *Along both sides of the NY/NY heading to the arena there had to have been at least 30+ VGK-themed cornhole games happening. *The catch-phrase of the PA guy? "IT'S KNIGHT TIME!" *The sword in the stone act? It happens before every. single. game. And it insinuated that every team in the league, even the Original Six, have been biding their time to vie for the damn sword and have just been settling for that puny Cup thing over the years. *The ice crew uniforms? The men wore gold foil tunics that looked like squires and the women all looked like Xena. *We sat in the first row of the section in front of their castle thing. Strangely the drumline (with neon glasses and drum rims) and the warning horn that the mascot fired up before the game were louder from the speakers than from right behind us. *Chance showed up right next to us at one point. I lived to talk about it. *In addition to Chance they have a really skinny British guy roaming the arena in full armor pointing his sword at people. *They had to make special on-screen graphics for the most basic rules. One had "OFFSIDES" plastered on the screen for a good 30 seconds. *I'm surprised they didn't edit "Las" out of Viva Las Vegas.
