  1. 2017 NFL Season

    Have to say the SD number surprises me. I expect it was a bunch of hate watching. I know quite a few who will follow them for that reason alone in SD. The LA number is as expected... pathetic.

    Actually that only bumped it to 27,000. The Galaxy have apparently been lying about their capacity for years and it was never actually 27,000 seats. But they were obligated to report it as 27,000 for some reason I'm not aware of.

    I was wondering about the ratings. What were the final numbers in SD and LA. Again it's just preseason, but it can still be compared to last year's preseason.

    San Diego may lose out on MLS thanks politics and San Diego State... But it seems the consolation NASL team has their act together. They've narrowed their search to three sites, and have released some initial site plans for what would appear to be their favorite site in Oceanside, CA. Plan would look like the following. And their stadium designer Populous has made similar modular stadiums that can go up in as little as 90 days in the same style and size such as AMI Stadium in New Zealand.

    It was a nice thing to see, the tarps on the stands, swaths of empty seats, half empty parking lots... and all this for the LA "fans" first chance to see them in person. I hope it continues indefinitely until they're forced to move by the league.
  6. NFL 2017 changes?

    So they bought a 767?

    Nope, not wrong at all. It's very clear what football at all levels does to the brain. Dropping your kid on their head accidentally makes parents feel terrible and harms them, and doing so intentionally is child abuse. Why does it become ok when the equivalent is done in the course of playing football? Adults choosing to destroy their brains of their own choice is one thing, but kids don't understand the damage they're doing to their bodies, so it's on the parents to protect them.

    You don't want a Churro or Brotato jersey? Seriously though it does seem like certain teams used different ways to approach the names. The Padres apparently used the actual nicknames they have for each other in the clubhouse. For 9 it's just their last names, for 14 it's something more clever. I've no idea what approach the Red Sox took

    It really comes down to the stadium. Does Nashville have a solid stadium plan that the government isn't paying for and refuses (as in St. Louis or Charlotte) or can't :censored: up even if not paying for it (as in SD). If so, they have a shot. If the government is involved... well good luck.

    To remind us the Padres should have kept the navy/yellow color scheme from 2016? I mean frankly that's the best looking jersey the Padres have worn this year (that wasn't their 1991 uni from Way Back Wednesday). It's a shame it's not their regular alt (button up) with the 2016 home cap. Speaking of the Padres, here's their nicknames.
  11. Hey at least the 2024 and 2028 games won't bankrupt whole cities and countries since both already have most of the required venues in place. The IOC might finally have gotten their collective heads out of their collective asses with regard to the Summer games. Winter games however... not so much.
  12. Could the Rays be moving to Las Vegas?

    It's not. Just typical maintenance issues any stadium is going to have as it nears 20 years old. But neither side wants to be the ones to pay for it. And the D-Backs won't leave the bigger Phoenix market to go slum in Vegas. They're just posturing trying to scare the city into paying for their desired upgrades.
  13. Could the Rays be moving to Las Vegas?

    Well Cashman Field is going to be converted into a Soccer Stadium here shortly for the new USL team. So they may be homeless before long.

    That or he's fond of pyramid schemes.

    Exactly. Baseball isn't graying so much as the US population is graying as a whole. Baseball is still at near record interest, and has actually been on the uptick in recent years.
