  1. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were 12

    Heck of a season, 3 fresh teams in the final four now... 2 of whom are just waiting to be buried by Triple H the New England Patriots.
  2. NHL Greatest Uniforms

    I noticed something interesting in that video - at about 13:38 he shows off an early version of their jersey, before they told him to add red: ...Do those colours not remind anyone else of that unused identity they would've worn in 1996-97, had they not moved?
  3. NHL Greatest Uniforms

    Honestly I've never had a problem with the Nordiques logo, but maybe that's just because I like abstract designs already. I used to have a problem with the red outlines they added to numbers in the 90s, but even that grew on me over time.
  4. NHL 2018-19

    Not to return to the Panthers discussion too much, given how it went, but I do want to make my opinions heard on it: -First of all, I'm someone who doesn't see "it's a ripoff of something else" as an inherently bad thing - everything takes influence from things from the past, some more obviously than others. So even if the Panthers' existing look was explicitly a Canadiens rip-off, that wouldn't be why I don't like it. -By my own admission I'm someone who really likes the team's original uniforms; Cole pointed out that "it's just a nice sweater for team that is basically irrelevant" - well, the way I see it that sweater's from when the team actually was relevant; the team that missed the playoffs by a single point in each of their first 2 seasons, then went all the way to the Finals in their 3rd. Having said that though, "they're not as good as their original look", as much as I do believe that, still isn't why I don't like their current uniform. -Simply put, the Panthers' current look just doesn't do anything for me - blue, gold & red is my all-time favourite colour scheme but I feel they just don't use it in a very interesting way, and the army motif feels very forced. The logo's an improvement, but the uniforms are very "meh" to me. (They are still a lot better than every incarnation of their Edge set, though.) As for their expansion brothers, I used to like the Ducks in eggplant & jade, but last spring I was watching them beat the Flames in the playoffs (again) and as I did, something just kinda clicked and I realised just how much I preferred seeing them in black & orange. Swap the webbed D for the recoloured duck-mask logo, do black & white versions of their alternate from last year, and I think they'd have a solid look. (Going orange for their primary would be a mistake, IMO - "orange primary w/black trim" is already the Flyers look; replace black with navy blue and it's also the Oilers look.)

    Y'know, I don't like this uniform either, but I don't know how you took a simple "not really, no" to mean Ice_Cap's trying to represent the community's opinion. You should stop assuming the worst about people, man - I don't think they're out to show you up just 'cause they disagree with you about hockey uniforms.
  6. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    And only in the goddamned NHL would a game celebrating the 100th birthday of the league's most popular team... be unwatchable on TV outside of Ontario.
  7. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were 12

    Admittedly I'm a Canadian outsider who doesn't watch much football, but my understanding is that, if he has the ball and falls to the ground, he's only ruled down when someone from the other team touches him. Did the refs forget about that because ???, or am I just wrong, or missing something else?
  8. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    So reading the last few pages, basically the Jeter-owned Miami Marlins are the Kansas City Athletics of the 21st century?
  9. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The Clippers is the only one I fully, legitimately like. The Lakers I respect, only for bringing back their classic drop-shadows. Chicago's is just alright. The Knicks, Magic, Warriors & Thunder are trying WAY too hard with theirs, and the Cavs, Celtics, Grizzlies & Hornets aren't trying hard enough! As for the Pelicans, I like the colour scheme (though the fact that they still use it better than the Jazz, AKA the team who's colours are actually purple(ish), gold & green, is pretty funny to me), but this better be an error on 2K's part, because otherwise it's one of the dumbest, most pointless design choices I've ever seen.
  10. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    I can't help but wonder if the NHL will ask for another $500M from Quebecor for a second expansion bid, and then hang 'em out to dry once again.
  11. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    Not just their inaugural season - the Nordiques always used light blue & red as their colours. It was less so in the 80's when they were basically light blue & white with a red logo, but it became a little bit more pronounced in the 90's when they started putting red outlines on their numbers:

  14. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    On occasion we make fun of various local TV channels for putting the wrong logo in for a hockey team (like that time an LA station had the Sacramento Kings' logo on-screen instead of the LA Kings), but it's important to remember that sometimes even the teams' official social media pages can get it wrong:
