    2018-19 NHL Season

    How about those first-place New York Islanders. Even if only for a game it's fun to say this late in the season especially when I and others left this team for dead. Barry Trotz is the best coach this team's had since Al Arbour and Mitch Korn's done wonders for the goaltending. They've been really fun to watch all year.

    Anyone that isn't New England, Dallas, or Philly. In the case of a New England/Philly like last year, I hope the stadium magically implodes and begrudgingly pull for Philly.

    And for their next trick, it looks like Gregg Williams is strongly rumored to be the next Jets DC.

    Adam Gase to the Jets...what a crappy hire. I didn't expect anything less from their ownership, they didn't disappoint. Jets gonna Jet!
  6. In fairness, the Jets did use black as an outline in their set prior to the current one. That said, I fully expect the Jets to do something like green outlines on black numbers and the black alternate will look like a recolored 49ers black jersey because the Jets gonna Jet.

    2018 NFL Season

    The Jets wised up and flushed Bowles (right move,) but kept MacCagnan (wrong move.) Black Monday is always one of my favorite days in the NFL season.
  8. I'd rather they be new and exciting because of a high-quality front office, terrific coaching, and great players, not because of their uniforms.
  9. It's the Jets they're 110% disaster from the ownership suite to the front office to the coaching staff to the on-field product. Given their track record if I think it's 110% disaster from the jump the disappointment won't be as bad later.

    New Era to close its Derby, NY plant

    I thought I read somewhere, maybe The Buffalo News, that they do own the Florida plant through their purchase of 5th and Ocean but that it is smaller than the one in upstate New York.

    2018 MLB Off Season Thread

    Just watched Tony LaRussa on High Hear on MLB trying to defend the vote to put Baines into the HOF. Never been a huge Chris Russo guy but to his credit, he asked the questions that needed to be asked particularly about the potential conflict of interest with the close connection to Baines he and several on that panel had, and wouldn't take LaRussa's attempts to both insult his intelligence and dodge the questions. LaRussa being one of the now infamous sixteen pulled the "I know better than you, the fans or the writers what makes a Hall of Famer" schtick. Reminds me of a defense lawyer who's trying to defend the indefensible. Go away Tony time to retire from all aspects of baseball.

    I was going to say that Baines isn't a Hall of Famer IMHO. I'll never be convinced he is either. Hall of Very Good, sure but Hall of Fame no. The cynic in me thinks this was done to facilitate the future election of those who primarily played the DH position against the argument of "but they didn't play in the field."
  14. In the words of Charles Barkley, that cap logo is turrible. Turrible I say.
  15. When the Islanders changed to the Gorton's Fisherman which I despised then and still do to this day I bought nothing with the logo on it, sticking with the vintage gear I had. Though I'm not a Mets fan I also refused to buy anything during their "Mets In Black" BFBS era as well including as gift items for family who were fans of either at those respective times. At the end of the day as consumers, the only real power we have if we don't like something (unless you're rich enough to buy a team and impose your will on them) is to vote with our dollars and hope enough others have the same view to cause a team to get the message that way.
