    XFL Return, new logo

    broadcast rights were skyrocketing 10 years ago but that bubble burst much like all other inflated assets over the last 20 years...espn is losing their asses on the nba and there are more examples of regional sure bets (lakers, dodgers etc.) that have been financial disasters than I have time for. For some reason the powers that be neglected to factor in that endless price increases for service combined with lack of compelling content at said price will drive consumers to opt out of paying for cable, sports packages or both.

    XFL Return, new logo

    I'm sure vince is not worried one bit now that he has access to that sweet saudi cash...I'm really starting to question wwe's true motivations and think that mcmahon and his ilk only align themselves with patriotism and pro USA stances when they stand to profit off it. Maybe we are all getting played for fools here?

    What does the frequency have to do with my observation?

    XFL Return, new logo

    I'm starting to think the whole controversy was a farce from the get-go and those that promoted this fake controversy took advantage if a very vulnerable group that lacks the emotional maturity to see nuance in an increasingly complex world.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Agree 100% with this statement. The Champion font, while far from my personal favorite was perfect for ND. The geometry of the numbers and the sleeve monogram worked perfectly together. Also I having scrolled back several pages seeing photos of the classic gold painted helmets makes me think that while entirely unique, the hydro skinned golden helmets are too literal of an interpretation to be used full time. Give me the 90's champion uniforms with shiny pants and painted gold helmets 90% of the time. The other 10% can be green alts and one off-gold helmets. Everything else needs to be incinerated.

    There is nothing traditional about the jaguars uniforms. They are plain and basic, having the aesthetic of practice uniforms.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Compared to the sanders throwbacks the rest of these modern okie state uniforms are either of the arena football (fake sheriff/harley davidson imagery) or high school (cartoon logos and jumbled color/stripe combos). There used to be a pretty defined aesthetic for college football that emphasized time tested color combinations often combined with a bold and seldom modified helmet logo that was typically letter/monogram based. Mascots and other detailed iconography was relegated to pennants, t-shirts, and the mascots costumes. Long story short this osu throwback is what a college uniform should look like. It's the maturation of going from a hodgepodge high school uniform to a more mature and unified design, which ultimately evolves into a pro uniform with full striping, pro helmet logo, and long socks. Last point: the one differentiator in the modern nfl era that made their unis stand out for decades was full length socks, striped pants, and no monochrome. That was kind of cool.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    It was like they wanted to recreate the black and white tv experience in 2018. So we got gray/white v white/black which is apparently far more visually appealing to cardinal/silver and green/yellow/white because nike.

    NFL 2018 changes

    jags uni will be around <10 years...it's too plain and they don't have decades of tradition to keep it relevant...it's a trendy overcorrection to a trendy mess that they had before...the only classic look they have is from the fred taylor era and that was a modern classic.

    These are relocations so you're only getting a nominal increase in revenues if you can out draw and upcharge. So let's assume a relo gives you that incremental increase, does that revenue increase exceed the ~$2 Billion capital expenditure for a new stadium and relocation fees? My back of the napkin guess says no. Local revenues are a distant secondary revenue source the revenue sharing that all 32 teams share equally. Lastly nobody is getting rich off of solely owning an nfl franchise. Look at the spanos and davis situations, both cash poor owners because the don't have any outside income to bring to the table. The majority of ownership got rich elsewhere, then bought their teams. Edit: Feel free to poke a few holes in my argument as it's late on fri night and I have not looked up any recent #'s but the general concept is pretty much there.
  12. Couldn't agree more...this has local swap meet written al over it. What a POS.

    Football: bring back metallic pants

    much like nike bringing about their minimalist design trend being an obvious attempt for them to stay ahead of the fashion/design curve, I thought they would have trotted out metallic sheen by now as a new design element for whatever their next generation cutting edge fabric is. Anecdotally the high end women's athletic brands seem to have been on the shiny/metallic trend (90's baby!) for over a year so the tech is definitely out there. Maybe adi will be the 1st to jump back as they have embraced the faux mesh pattern with their throwbacks.

    Regardless of their perception is non-raider fans, they have been the #1 draw for viewers in LA and the cowboys have been #2 for a couple decades. Nfl is a tv driven sport so having a local team to grow your fan base is irrelevant in 2018. Kids who grew up without a local team chose others and transplants brought their allegiance with them from the big cities back east. It will take at least a decade for the rams to get real traction.
