    Seattle has an NHL team

    Red & black as their colour scheme, it looks like? So they'll look the exact same as 1/5th of the rest of the league? Well, that's just a great start

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Guess we'll never know for sure where he disappeared to during the "have another donut!" mess.
  3. The NBA has/had some really stupid branding rules. Old logos & uniforms are entirely off-limits unless you change them a ton (imagine if the NHL had that rule), changing your primary logo entirely cost more than just recolouring the existing one, back when they gave a damn about home & away the home had to be white (except for the Lakers because grandfather clauses), and now this "every team has 4 uniforms that they wear when we tell them to, one of which we'd really like them to change every single year" thing. It's silly.

    Congratulations, Lottery Winner!

    I could buy an expansion ABA 2000 team and just absorb the losses and run it forever. It'd be the best-run team in that league by default.
  5. Hard to say if you hate them more than the Pats though ?

    2018 NFL Season

    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...

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

    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

    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.

    NHL 2018-19

    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.

    Unpopular Sports Opinions

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