    Circular Brackets

    I remember another user here coming up with this idea a couple of years ago, but I can't for the life of me remember who it was or come up with the right search terms to find the old topic. But here goes anyway ... Given that it's playoff time in the NBA and NHL, and a recent work project got me thinking about presenting data in different ways, I was messing around this morning with circular brackets. I'm wondering which version everyone likes better: where the colours fade in toward the middle (20% of a team colour in the first round, 40% in the second, etc.), or the one where they're solid throughout. FYI - this is just a chalk version of this year's NHL Playoffs for example purposes and should not be taken as any sort of prediction.

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    This is a long shot, but has anyone heard if Puma is forcing the font they're using on their 2018 World Cup kits onto the clubs for whom they make kits this season? I've seen new Borussia Dortmund kits with that hideous font, but Arsenal put out a bunch of graphics on social media this morning regarding Mesut Ozil changing his number from 11 to 10 that featured the 2018-19 kit but the font from 2017-18.

    2018 FIFA World Cup, round of 16 complete: Note: There are spaces for scores in the knockout rounds; however, they are all on one layer, so they'll be added in at the end.

    MLB changes 2018?

    It's already banned in the board guidelines. Earlier on, it seemed people were talking about the aesthetics of the Cleveland road uniform set, but this is veering into the politics behind the Chief Wahoo logo and the nickname. And we've proven time and again that such discussions can't be civil. I don't want to shut down a longstanding and useful thread such as this, so consider this a warning to all to drop the debate about the logo and the nickname.

    2018 FIFA World Cup, with group stage complete: Backgrounds for group stage winners are inspired by their kits. Backgrounds in the round of 16 are the crests each team is wearing on their kits; most are the countries' football federation logos, except for Russia, who are wearing their coat of arms.

    It looks like OP is trying to copy and paste the URL from a Gmail attachment. Download the file from your Gmail and them upload it to a third-party hosting site like Imgur. Copy the image URL from that (make sure it ends in .JPG, .PNG or another raster file format) and then paste it here on the boards.

    Quad City Storm SPHL logo

    I thought this might be a concept that was getting passed around as the genuine article. Nope: https://qconline.com/new-quad-city-hockey-team-will-be-called-the-quad/article_46246944-7579-11e8-bc6a-9395a343ccbf.html

    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    After building Rogers Place, there is zero appetite here to build another new stadium. Especially since Commonwealth successfully hosted Women's World Cup games in 2015 and it actually scored quite high in the FIFA bid evaluation for stadiums (transportation and accommodations are where the city was lacking).

    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    Sorry to burst any bubbles, but Minneapolis is not getting any games in 2026. Minneapolis pulled out of the running back in March and was not one of the 23 potential host cities that were part of the final bid (a list that still has to be whittled down to 16).

    Don't know yet. They haven't ironed out that wrinkle yet. Probably won't until the next FIFA Congress in June 2019.
  17. I believe it's missing some commas and is meant to flow into the first post. How can, after Pepsi uses the retro packaging, / Can they go back to the bad smiley Pepsi globe?

    Circular Brackets

    Completed 2018 NBA Playoffs: I've also been futzing around with the format for a bracket for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Here's what I have so far. The logistics are tricky since it's a pretty drastic reshuffle between the group and knockout stages. What I've done in this hypothetical (again, not to be taken as any sort of prediction) is grayed out teams eliminated in the group stage in the outermost ring, while teams advancing from the group stage get a background colour from their flag, and then their flag as a faded background image from the knockout stage on (e.g. Egypt). Let me know if this makes sense or if there are any improvements you think I could make.

    Yeah, Puma really seems to be pushing this "pulse" motif with Arsenal this year.
