  1. Las Vegas Lights FC (USL) unveil logo

    Well that and Cashman is much closer to the appropriate size for a USL or MLS team. Boyd is way too big for second division soccer.
  2. San Diego Seals (NLL)

    Well the ocean is dark and muted, so it's actually a pretty cognizant choice in that regard.
  3. San Diego Seals (NLL)

    Pretty much a definite on that one. The name is fine, as is the trident. The issue I have with the logo is the fact the seal looks nothing like a seal.
  4. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    Agreed. It's not going to happen overnight, unless this season gets really bad. But Spanos ownership will likely preclude it even if the league wants it to happen. Since any owner in San Diego would have to foot the whole or vast majority of the bill for a new NFL stadium. San Diego has moved on without the NFL and is focused on MLS and/or SDSU now. The political will to screw around with the NFL is nil right now. Perhaps a replacement NFL expansion team in a few years ala Cleveland. San Diego Bolts has a nice ring to it (since I don't expect the Spanii would ever give up the Chargers name). Particularly if the NFL completely loses the 8th largest city in the US, which is apparently happening based on how far the ratings for their product have fallen in San Diego (not just the LAC mind).

    Not saying it wouldn't take a bit of work. Just as the move up required work (that the Spanii clearly weren't willing to put in based on the piss poor results). But it could be done. The NFL has more than enough money to throw at Kroneke to offset any losses. Because the perception of two teams failing in the second largest market in the US is an even worse loss long term. Though much of that damage can't be undone, particularly now that LA has been shown to have been an empty threat all these years.
  6. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    I'm not. The average sports fan in America is the same kind of person who the guys running NASCAR for example try to cater to (as you've seen in their responses over the last 72 hours). That's not to say they're a big majority. But they are the ones who are as a general rule the most "die hard". Particularly with football. That they'd react this way to a prostest they see as a leftist minority attack on America... shouldn't surprise anyone in the slightest. And there in lies the pickle the NFL in particular has found itself. It's most virulent fan base, is the type that will swear them off and burn everything if they perceive the league as "hatin on Murica". But by the same token, they've enough fans that are in the heavy support category for those kneeling that those folks won't be happy until the league takes a hard and public stance in favor of what the kneeling players are doing. The NFL can not win not matter what they do.

    No only Yankee Stadium plays it every day is my understanding. Petco Park and Fenway play it every Sunday.

    Right there with you on GBA. I dislike that song and it's implications. I make a point to sit for it every time with my cap on and then jump up for Take Me Out to the Ballgame.
  9. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    Never say never. The NFL makes the rules, and can undo it just as easily as they did it is the reality of the situation. And they will do so if it is in the league's best interest. Just as they've let the Rams back to LA, they let the Raiders go back to Oakland, they recreated the Browns, etc...
  10. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    Maybe on this board. Only thing that will garner then any goodwill in LA will be winning a Super Bowl... maybe.

    Because it's not a city's job to build a billionaire a stadium. That's standard procedure in California. Spanos knows that, and he clearly had the money to build one in San Diego on his dime... as he's spending over a billion to move to LA.
  12. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    No they distributed 25,381 tickets. Almost 2000 tickets remained unsold by the team. And several thousand were also unsold on the resale markets like Stubhub, Ticketmaster and NFL Ticket Exchange. There were probably closer to 20,000 actual human beings in the stands.
  13. MLB changes 2018?

    Part of me thinks you might be right about the Padres. They've been clearing out all their current inventory from the Padres team store. Including items they'd usually hold over season to season if a change wasn't being made.
  14. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    It had more justification than the Dolts' move from San Diego I'll give you that. But it's not like they were doing any worse at the gate in St. Louis than they are now in LA.
  15. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    ESPN provided this comedic gold vis-a-vis the ill advised move of not one but two NFL teams to LA (a city that apparently already had its football team in USC) regarding this weekends games in LA. Also keeping in mind the Rams and Chargers numbers were "announced" tickets distributed... not actual attendance. The LAC had several thousand seats still for sale on the resale market just prior to kick off on Ticketmaster/Ticket Exchange/StubHub.
