  1. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    I just meant that I thought that was what was coming but I do agree with you @Gothamite. It doesn't make sense. If you want to develop those players, they should be playing against the best possible competition. Not too be a jerk, but those NASL fans probably only think that because they want to see their league get the D2 status and they believe that if USL doesn't have it then it's theirs for the taking. I believe that opinion is less about where reserve teams should play and more about their league not being D2.

    I mean, at the end of the day, that's always the case. Good point. I actually don't feel strongly about it either way just thought I'd throw that out there.
  3. It's almost guaranteed. Consider it a bad joke attempt.
  4. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    Not that it was ever officially stated but I always thought that the idea was for the MLS reserve teams to become a 3rd division. Allow me to play Devil's advocate for a second: If there is no way to get promoted to division 1, is there really any point of doing it?
  5. I really like this look. Maybe it's silly but if something is on, isn't the light green? I'm sure it wouldn't look as good with a green uniform anyways (I'm picturing the Portland Thunder bright green uniform in my mind, lol)......though that might be fun to see I didn't say it before because it seemed like a waste to post for something that has been said by someone else but I love how the Atoms have such a simple colour scheme and, for the most part, uniform but managed to make it super modern with the bolts around the numbers. Did these Atoms sign a mule too?
  6. NHL 2017-18

    Clear tape is pretty standard for socks. I'm 32 now, and I can't remember a time when clear tape wasn't used.
  7. 2018 MLS Kits

    Oh. Well....let me just wipe this egg off my face .
  8. 2018 MLS Kits

    I think he means that Red Bull wore their white shirts at home in that game. TFC couldn't also wear their white shirts.
  9. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Yeah, me too. The Blue with red letters is just an awesome jersey. The hat he's wearing in that picture (red bill) is my "daily wear" hat, gone through a few of them over the years.
  10. Ken Van Middlesworth is a Canadian business man who owns a chain of sporting goods stores in Ontario/Quebec/Eastern Canada which is headquartered in Toronto. He's very big in giving back to the sporting communities and supports grassroots sporting programs. He has season seats in Montreal, Quebec and, Toronto corporately but also has a pair of season seats in Toronto for personal use Portland. Arena plans are in place, a local owner with deep pockets, a fan base that wants the team. Seems like a home run. Atlanta. Big TV market, strong fan support, new arena. Seems like, at least on paper, it would make sense from a business perspective.
  11. 2018 MLS Kits

    I agree, it's fun to see teams use non-team colours. I don't think that @Gothamite meant you have to use team colours so much as he was wondering what the reasoning is for red. To speak to your examples, there is significance to the teams choosing those colours, I think he was just wondering what the significance of red would be in this case. Then again, I'd like to see a team wear a neon pink kit just "because I think that would be fun to see" and there's no significance tieing that to any club that I can think of.
  12. San Diego Seals (NLL)

    Yeah, I prefer that logo as well, I think it would look better on the front of the jersey. The logo they currently are using as a primary seems better suited as a shoulder patch I think.
  13. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    The first time I went, my uncle took me for my birthday when I was about 10, I very clearly remember coming down that escalator thinking "why are we going to a mall?".
  14. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Enjoy! I really like going to the HHOF, I try to go once a year as they do change up some of the exhibits. The room the trophies are stored in (an old bank) feels like walking into an old church. I just love the vibe. To add to that, for people like us CCSLCers, there's a lot of cool jerseys to see.
  15. I actually really like the Sound's 3rd. It's fun for and for a 3rd jersey, that's ok by me.
  16. NLL Expansion 2018

    The National Lacrosse League announced this morning that they will be expanding to San Diego for the 2018-19 season. The team will play out of the Valley View Casino Center (home to the AHL's Gulls). This will bring the league up to 10 teams for the first time since 2011. http://www.nll.com/news/national-lacrosse-league-welcomes-its-10th-franchise/ My 2 cents: I'm usually pretty opinionated about where this league expands to but I'm taking a wait and see approach on this one. The owner has deep pockets (worth almost 5 billion) and apparently has aspirations to get into the NBA as well so you'd think he'd want to put his best foot forward with this.
  17. San Diego Seals (NLL)

    Yeah, my first thought was "very Kings-esk". But the more I look at it, the more I like it. I think I just really like the colour scheme and the font used more than anything.
  18. NLL Expansion 2018

    https://sealslax.com/press-release/san-diego-pro-lacrosse-team-named-seals It's official. Reminds me of the Kings quiet a bit but I think it's a unique colour scheme for the NLL.
  19. NLL Expansion 2018

    So, it looks like the NLL team in San Diego will be the Seals and that we will probably hear Halifax announced soon.
  20. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    Man, who knows? it's been 20 celcious + this weekend.....weather has been so weird this year. It didn't really effect it last year. Fingers crossed that will be the same (assuming they get there)
  21. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    It's getting better: http://www.mystatesman.com/sports/soccer/crew-anthony-precourt-lays-out-case-for-mls-soccer-austin/iIgaOfMaFOBcoah5cV2chL/ And yes, we did think that Atlanta, Portland and Orlando would do well. They had the track record. No, not all games start at 7:30 at night. Seriously dude, you don't know that?
  22. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    The Crew do not own Huntington Park. I was floating the idea of them playing there
  23. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    I know that the Crew don't own the stadium and MLS doesn't like that but could the Crew play at Huntington Park? Guess it doesn't matter if the owner isn't interested.

    https://twitter.com/danpearlman/status/921057671805054976 I don't know how to embed a tweet here. Anyways, apparently people have been asking for a refund on their 2018 season seats in Columbus and the answer is "no".
  25. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    They once did. They won't again
