    When it's Scorigami, America wins.

    The Oakland/Las Vegas/Where The Hell Are We? Raiders

    Honestly if this lawsuit comes to fruition and the Raiders do leave early I think Sam Boyd's the only place that makes sense - anywhere else would be a disaster of a season, and if all of that lines up I honestly think the NFL will cave and just let them play there, despite all of its issues. Although as I say that, a lame-duck year in San Diego like Cosmic suggested would be a disaster that'd be worth it just for the image of the Chargers having to return over the bridge they detonated 2 years ago...

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    huh, I didn't realise Jeff Gordon had a career in hockey journalism before getting into stock car racing :V

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Oh man, I remember that Greatest Uniforms poll the NHL did for their centennial last year, I think I'll go see the results again- ...oh

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    If I had my way Detroit and Toronto would still be in the West. I know, "muh timezones", but I think they both had better rivalries over there anyways: Detroit had San Jose & especially Colorado, Toronto had St. Louis & arguably Los Angeles and they both had Chicago and obviously each other; and I think splitting the "Original Six" 3 per conference was a better setup than dumping 5 in the same conference anyways, and leaving Chicago on their own to feud with St. Louis and... Nashville, I guess?

    Isles Officially Unveil New Third Jersey

    I guess I'm the only one here who finds the jersey boring and uninspired. Even the orange numbers aren't enough to save it for me. 3/10

    The Whalers Return! Hurricanes Announce Epic Throwback Uniforms

    It's sorta like how the Avalanche honour the Hockey Rockies despite them not being the same franchise and the latter having nothing worth remembering, except a clever logo and generally-nice identity. (In fact, as I typed that I realised it's a lot like that!) Really the main differences between the two are that the Whalers actually have fans, whereas the Rockies (and to a certain, exaggerated but sad extent, the Hurricanes) really don't; also that despite the Rockies' general irrelevance Denver got a new team again anyways.

    I've observed it before, that despite them being defunct for 20 years the Whalers have as big a fan base, if not a bigger (or at least a louder) one, than the team they turned into does.

    Yeah, but the stakes would be a lot higher if they were fighting for one playoff spot instead of five or eight.

    Unpopular Sports Opinions

    I took the liberty of arranging the current MLB playoff races like the NHL pre-2013, where it was 8 teams per conference and the division leaders got the highest seeds: American League: 1: Boston - 106-51 2: Houston - 100-57 3: Cleveland - 88-69 4: New York - 97-60 5: Oakland - 95-63 6: Tampa Bay - 87-70 7: Seattle - 86-71 8: Los Angeles - 77-81 ----------------------- 9: Minnesota - 72-84 10: Toronto - 71-87 (PS: since the idea of a sub-500 Angels team winning the World Series in this hypothetical playoffs was brought up: Boston's 6-0 against the Angels this season.) National League: 1: Chicago - 91-66 2: Atlanta - 89-68 3: Los Angeles - 88-70 4: Milwaukee - 91-67 5: Colorado - 87-70 6: St. Louis - 87-71 7: Pittsburgh - 80-76 8: Arizona - 80-78 -------------------- 9: Washington - 80-78 10: Philadelphia - 78-79 On the other hand, if we went to the opposite extreme of going back to straight pennant races with no playoffs but the World Series, we'd be seeing one hell of an NL race right now, with Milwaukee just a half-game back of Chicago and Atlanta & LA having decent outside chances as well.

    Raptors New City Uniform Leaks on Media Day

    I know this isn't a concepts thread so I apologise ahead of time, but I did decide to whip up a blue & white Raptors identity in NBA 2K17 last year that I thought came out really good:

    Flames alt: 9/10, great uniform, deserves to be more than an alternate - that it stays stuck as an on-and-off alt while management continues to stick with a 12-year old Edge uniform that nobody likes is baffling to me.

    They actually did it.

    Browns down 14-0 in a game they were somehow favoured to win. Sounds about right.
