  1. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Yeah, Edwards wanted a free billion dollars from the city for all of his sports toys, and when the mayor had the sense to tell him to go screw, he brought in the NHL to try to influence the mayoral election. Murray was stacking Ls all season long on and off the ice. If Murray Edwards thinks he can do better with one team in Houston than he can with four teams in Calgary, I advise him to go ahead and try his luck.

    The Chicago USL bid is an absolute fantasy hinged on Chicago winning the Amazon HQ2 bid and the company then selecting the old Finkl Steel plant on Goose Island as its preferred site, instantly making everything in the area obscenely prime real estate. Ricketts buying in on the USL bid should be seen as nothing more than land speculation at this point. What was it, a year ago, that people were starting to get really hyped for the proposed in-city Chicago NASL club? Then there was a big supporters' meeting at The Globe, the emperor gave everyone quite the fashion show, and that was that. Threading off of that, when we last left Peter Wilt, he had rightly bailed on the Chicago NASL bid, and after one too many conversations with Tinfoil Ted, was helping get the National Independent Soccer Association started, with the promise of building a soccer pyramid with its own pro/rel structure... somehow. Anyway, that's clearly an abject failure, so now he's off to launch a USL D3 club in Madison. I like Peter a lot. He's a very nice guy with a decades-long passion for making soccer work stateside, and without him, there's probably no Fire, Red Stars, or Indy Eleven today. He has made a lot work. But he's fallen in with some pretty sketchy actors on his last couple of ventures, and I hope he's taken away something from those experiences. I hope he builds something great in Madison.
  3. Mitchell and Ness can go to H E C K

    Speaking of Champion's numerals, M&N has never been able to replicate them correctly, have they? It's odd, because they're an Adidas/Reebok property, and some Adidas NCAA jerseys used the Champion font several years ago.
  4. If they do go with Crop Dusters, I'm rechristening the Ballpark Village as "The Dutch Oven."

    The theory rumbling in my brain is that Dundon, a vulture capitalist by trade whose big windfall came from predatory auto loans, is going to run the franchise all cheap and bare-bones until he can flip it to Quebecor, who will pay an NHL-mandated premium price for it. Rod Brin-da-who? him. He's just an employee. I got mine, bye.

    "I don't want to spend any money on this crap I bought, but apparently there's something called a *emphatic air quotes* "salary floor" that I have to adhere to. Donny, your job is two jobs now. Okay, who around here wants to be head coach? No raises."
  7. The Chicago Dogs, as part of their "Wiener Wednesdays" promotion, will wear alternate "WIENERS" uniforms. People of Franklin, do not name your team after a walking fart.

    The Hurricanes aren't just done, they're Dundon.
  9. Haymakers or Barn Owls or force the team to play in Zion until they fold for picking such a godawful name.

    I thought that was going to happen with Vinnie Viola. Shows what I know!
  11. Yes. The Milwaukee Ketchups.
  12. Dogs definitely tried doing too much at once. It's very Rosemont of them to force "CHICAGO" into the uniform at every opportunity, though. I'm surprised it isn't printed down the sides of the pants.

    The Hurricanes have hired Rick Dudley to work with Don Waddell, after literally no one they were interested in wanted to be their GM. Disruptive Brain Genius Tom Dundon is building success through the 2010-11 Atlanta Thrashers front office.

    Damn, that is brilliant.

    It's perfect that Eugene Melnyk is hesitant to switch to the "O" because Chris Neil told him it's bad luck. There's your franchise in a nutshell.
