  1. USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    I wouldn't call Soldier Field anything near a lock -- it was not part of the failed 2022 bid, passed over in favor of Indianapolis.
  2. USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    Whatever they’re calling Dolphins Stadium these days is the best soccer venue this country has — it’s complete with the Euro-style roofs, straight sides, etc. Reminds me of the stadium in Köln so much that has a great atmosphere. lol @ the idea of playing soccer at Heinz Field, that’d be a disaster
  3. NBA Changes 2017-18

  4. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    We knew from leaks that these changes would be substantial, so I split the discussion off ahead of time. Anyway, I think these are the first unequivocal upgrade of the Nike era. Really like this set.
  5. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Please remember to discuss new unveilings in team-specific threads. If one does not yet exist, do not respond in this thread. Instead, create a new thread and post your comment there. I split off discussion on the Suns uniforms to its own thread, and created one for the Clippers unveiling tomorrow. Please limit discussion of those sets to those threads. And for posterity:
  6. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Adidas shoulder stripes bug the :censored: out of me on jerseys with different-colored sleeves because the stripes don’t run perfectly over the shoulder; they’re offset toward the front of the kit for better visibility, which means they don’t line up with the middle of the sleeve. It looks bad against a patch on any kit, but I feel it stands out more on contrasting sleeve ones.
  7. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    Please discuss the new Clippers uniforms, to be unveiled Friday here, not in the NBA Changes thread.
  8. Could the Rays be moving to Las Vegas?

    I saw Indianapolis discussed a few pages ago, and I think Indianapolis could maybe support an American League team in the same way that Cleveland and Pittsburgh support the Indians and Pirates -- they're all metro areas of roughly 2 million, and each CLE and PIT have the three-team grouping of football/baseball/winter that Indianapolis would. Of course, that way is "lower mid-pack in attendance when the team is good, near the bottom when the team isn't good," which is probably not the long-term pathway to success. Baseball has very few small-market teams, and most of those that do remain are longstanding clubs -- only Cincinnati, Cleveland, Kansas City, Milwaukee and Pittsburgh have fewer than 2.5 million people -- and is already in literally every market larger than that in the English-speaking part of the continent. The best you could do population-wise is adding Charlotte, which would still rank 24th in both population and as a media market. Would Charlotte have more success supporting the football/baseball/winter trio than either Cleveland or Pittsburgh do? Perhaps Raleigh/Durham is more feasible, with only the Hurricanes and (admittedly big) college sports to deal with?
  9. Minnesota Timberwolves

    I like these in design and idea, just not for Minnesota. I think that’s an easy way to put it.
  10. 2017 MLB Season

    Tribe were a strike away from handing Corey Kluber his fourth loss on the season where he gave up 0 or 1 earned runs. Then Austin Jackson and Yan Gomes happen. Sure. Though if the Indians could just consistently score runs when Kluber throws gems, they’d have the division all but wrapped up. Kluber’s seven losses this season have come when he surrenders 2, 5, 2, 0, 1, 1 and 3 earned runs. Yet some people still believe pitcher wins/losses are the go-to stat.

    In the process of routing conversation on the Nuggets, Cavaliers and Timberwolves to their own threads. Please remember the new forum guidelines.
  12. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    The sad thing with the Cavaliers' incredibly unstable uniform history is that they got it nearly perfectly right on the first try. The set that followed was solid, as was the 2003-10 set that was at least loosely based off the first two eras. But for my money, they've never worn anything close to these in calibre. (It's funny that the last set drew inspiration from this one, too, it just decided to be super boring about it.)

    Splitting to conform with our forum rules.
  14. 2017 NHL Offseason

    Yes, let’s hold getting “tossed aside in five” to the team that’s now won two consecutive Stanley Cups against them. That’s a perfectly worthwhile reason why the NHL shouldn’t try to market last season’s fourth-best team that featured the third most valuable player in the league.
