  1. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    It's because you've been visiting porn sites.

    Oh, jeez. It looks like a February Tuesday in there. That's stunning.

    Short of giving this asshat free money and land, of course. Addendum: DIG UP, STUPID

    Ah yes, those out-of-nowhere upstarts, the Portland Timbers. Columbus doesn't deserve to get done dirty like this, but at least they'll be rid of this dope.

    Lou Lamiorello accidentally explains why the NHL will never have widespread popularity:

    I'd have preferred AC Whale Vagina.

    San Diego unveiled their NASL expansion identity today. The club has been named "1904 FC," not because 1904 is a significant year in city history, but because "S" is the 19th letter of the alphabet, and "D" is the 4th letter of the alphabet. I hope the whole league burns to the ground before they play a game. We can't even do Euro-poseur properly in this country anymore.

    I am not buying my next new or used Honda from that guy.
  9. Las Vegas getting a WNBA team

    We're probably getting stuck with a casino property for the team's name, much like the Connecticut Sun.

    Well, if they decide to adopt a fall-to-spring schedule, then they're a different kind of doomed that has nothing to do with franchise valuation.

    I'm starting to get a faint whiff of Arena Football 1.0 coming off of MLS' business model. Remember a few years ago, when the league decided to fold (I'm sorry, "suspend") Chivas USA , and then turned right around and awarded an expansion franchise to Los Angeles FC? That's because they knew an outright sale of an MLS club was worth significantly less then their juiced-up expansion fee. (See also: Arena Football, Indiana Firebirds.) Now Precourt comes in, buys the Crew for an "inflated" $68 million, and just up and moves the team with the longest history in the league, while other bidders are expected to pony up $200M for a franchise with a commitment to a designated market. Why would you burn your money on that? Either wait for a sale and pay probably half of the expansion fee, or if the league insists on inflating the price, put your money in a more viable sports investment now that the numbers on this one are being laid bare. If the Crew go to Austin, I think there's a good chance we end up looking back on it as the first domino.

    Hey, let's see how Gary Bettman's attempts to wield influence over a foreign election are going: Aw, shoot. Well, you'll get 'em next time, little guy!

    It means that throwbacks from now on will only be the Indonesian-made "Team Classics" style, if what he says is correct. That means thinner material, super-baggy arms, and screened twill shoulder patches in some instances.

    Speaking of which, a guy from SportsK told me that, with adidas selling off CCM and making it an equipment-only brand, the Canadian-made CCM 550 Vintage jerseys will no longer be produced. All the throwbacks will be from the Indonesian-made Heroes of Hockey and Team Classics lines.

    I guess its main use in the system is to give your 4th goalie regular starts.

    The warmup jerseys looked like retail replicas, too.

    When Simmons isn't up his own ass and speaks straightforward from a position of knowledge, he's pretty good.

    Today in Guys, Bill Foley May Have Some Problems, we examine his vision for what will allegedly be tonight's pregame ceremony. Also, there's a Knights blog that earnestly and frequently refers to Foley as "The Creator," so maybe this guy's found his audience.

    I read earlier this week from our esteemed leader they're just going to plop the Eagles in the Pacific and make it a 9-team division with some teams playing fewer games than others, because you, that's why.

    They'd bump Chicago east to keep the slot open for Seattle.
