  1. 2017 NFL Season

    Yeah, we've always had a problem with Da Bearz. I just don't understand it.
  2. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    Oh no, I'm not saying that the USSF has done nothing, and you are right about what Gulanti has done in the past, but I'm just expressing how I can see where Eric is coming from as it feels like the state of soccer in the US is stuck with no real plans as to what direction we are headed. Maybe this is what Gulanti needs to make some of the changes necessary to get the US in a better position not just in competing with other pro leagues here in the states but with other countries on a global stage.

    By offended, you mean the 9 out of 10 Native Americans who take no offense to their likeness being used in sports? The only straw man here is to believe the argument that a sports logo is the cause of everything that has happened to the Indian Nations and that being offended means being hurt. Now, if your feelings are hurt and you feel like you need to say something, the go ahead, no one is stopping you. But it also means that I don't have to agree with your feelings or even see the harm in a sports logo. As someone who is of Irish ancestry, should I feel offended by the Boston Celtics character of a portly, smoking, winking Irishman or Notre Dames fighting leprechaun to represent the Irish? If I was thinskined....maybe....but I see them as what they are...a sports logo and nothing more. So, if anyone wants chief wahoo gone and be replaced by something more dignified, like some here have posted, then fine. Have the Indians replace chief wahoo with something like the Redskins have...no problem. But those that want chief wahoo totally gone just because it will make them feel better, or make the one Native American feel better, then I suggest a better argument than your feelings.
  4. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Which one? They had a number of different sets. Some beautiful and some just plain grotesque. But other than Maryland, the intrigue still remains for other colleges and universities as to how they would design a state pride uniform.
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    My brother lived in Denver for a few years, now lives in Fukuoka Japan, and said numerous times that if you slapped a Colorado flag on anything, or it said made in Colorado, that it would sell. If they do sell these jerseys to the public I could see a CU grad buying this. I can also see CU doing something like this in the future but maybe in CU colors. It also makes me think how other universities would look if they did a "state pride" uni like CSU.

    It would be nice to know at least some of the ideas Wynalda has if he became head of the USSF. I can only imagine he would be more of a player development oriented boss seeing as he was a player himself. I do think Eric is somewhat correct about his take on the game in the US as well. If you look at the past 11 years, the game has grown substantially, but I do think it has grown with just the minimal support of the USSF.

    As is, "We need to change something that in no way harms or hurts anyone because, all of the sudden, I personally feel offended by it."

    Move them to Oakland after the Raiders pull out.
  9. NHL 2017-18

    If looking like old rich guys with a polo under their jersey is the only "flaw"...I'll take it. IMO, I think the Pens still have one of the best looking kits in the NHL. Especially, if the Pens lift the Cup for a third time in a row....I'll take it. I do think, though, we dodged a bullet considering what New Jersey will be outfitted with this season....sheesh.

    So....you have a bunch of football thugs...in the largest Bible study group in the NFL....in hopes of balancing out their Karma....? Yeah, this definitely sounds like the Bengals. : )
  11. NFL 2017 changes?

    I wish the NFL would relax its helmet rule. While the Bengals look good in their Color Rush uni's a white helmet with black stripes would make them darn near perfect IMO.

    For what it's worth, Urinating Tree agrees with you....as do I.
  13. The Sports Media Thread

    You mean an ESPN that no one is watching. So much so, that ESPN President John Skipper sent out a company wide memo to his employees basically stating that ESPN is well...ESPN and not MSNBC....YEEEEAAAAHHHH Right! http://awfulannouncing.com/espn/john-skipper-sends-internal-memo-stating-espn-not-political-organization.html

    Well, it looks like Montreal has a new flag...and Coat of Arms to go with it. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/montreal-flag-amherst-indigenous-1.4287015
  15. 2017 NFL Season

    Here?! Hahahahahahahah! Well, we can but first we have to get past the CTE "coverup", greedy players, even more greedy owners, stadiums need to be built without taxpayer funds, football is dying, domestic abuse claims, anti New England, anti Pittsburgh, anti fan posts. Then we can enjoy football here. ; )
