  1. NHL 2017-18

    The Atlanta A is great for the alternate captain but the flaming C for the captain is a bit much. And that Flames concept of mine posted might be my favourite one I've done.
  2. The Sports Media Thread

    I just don't really know what ESPN expected with Barstool in the title. To add to Sodboy's point, the actual vehicle (Vanny Woodhead) the PMT vehicle was filmed in is PMT's. I'm sure they wrote if off as a Barstool business expense or something but the show was all Pardon My Take. IIRC, outside of PMT (Big Cat, PFT and their producer Hank), there was little to no Barstool in the actual production of the show. It was all Embassy Row and ESPN.
  3. The Sports Media Thread

    Their first (and only) episode with Scott Van Pelt as the guest. ------- I will admit, I am a Pardon My Take fan and I listen to all the podcasts. It's a fun, smart show and has clout in the sports/sports media world but they're only going to get so far in the "mainstream media" with the Barstool name attached, even though it's not really the "Barstool brand" people think of when they hear Barstool. A lot of people at ESPN like PMT and I don't think the cancellation will have an effect on the podcast but I feel for the PMT guys. The way the statement reads it seems it was less about PMT and the first episode, it's more about Barstool (read: Portnoy, Dave). Calling the show Barstool Van Talk didn't help ESPN either, it should have just been something related to Pardon My Take but I don't know if that would have flown with Barstool.
  4. Tank in the news

    Pardon My Take, the Barstool podcast which is getting the show, aren't the typical Barstool dudebros you think about.
  5. Star Wars Movie Thread

    I really don’t think this. I think too much has gone into Rey (and Daisy Ridley) from Disney and what we’ve gotten for her to turn evil. I just can’t see the new female heroine switching sides.
  6. MLB changes 2018?

    I for one don't want the Angels to emphasize blue again. I really like the red-on-red look they've got and they own it, making it somewhat unique. Having them blue again would make them look like every other blue and red team.

    From Zach Lowe's League Pass rankings about the Jazz.
  8. NFL 2017 changes?

    That's my major gripe with some of the CFL identities, especially the Stamps. The Stamps have been red-based since 1948 and the white horse on the red shell has been a classic helmet since the '60s. Then in 2012 they decided to add a black away helmet. The black helmet looks even worse now that the away jersey is even more red based with the switch to Adidas.
  9. 2017 NFL Season

    Well the young guys are playing well and it's not like McCown is putting the team on his back and dragging the team to victory. You can't expect the players to go out and intentionally lose games. A few wins and some good play will help he confidence of the younger guys.

  11. 2017-18 CHL Logos/Jerseys

    Anybody know anything about the Oil Kings maybe changing soon? Their website and social media is themed for the black and green alternate but they still have a third jersey schedule for that jersey this season. I don't mind that jersey, I just don't really like it as an alternate for the Oil Kings as they currently are because it looks like a completely different team.
  12. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    This is/was Calgary's proposal to the Flames.

    And here's Nenshi's response,
  14. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Plenty of people. Probably not, especially not the CalgaryNEXT proposal. Cost being only one of the multiple reasons that proposal wasn't good. The last three new CFL stadiums to be built cost $278 million (Regina), $145.7 million (Hamilton) and $210 million (Winnipeg). But it will be interesting to see if and when the Flames go back to the city to see if they still include the Stamps in a proposal because the hockey arena will include three out of the four CSEC teams.
  15. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    No the Saddledome isn't falling apart but it is showing its age and lacks a lot of the ameneties of all these newer arenas, same with McMahon (so much concrete), so admiral is right in saying Calgary is due for a new arena/complex. But what the Flames want from the city isn't going to work. The admiral's also right about the concerts. Calgary gets skipped over for Edmonton all the time because of the Saddledome and its limitations. And if acts do come, it's often stripped down a bit and the acoustic aren't the greatest. (Keep in mind, I've never been to a concert at the Dome. This is just the common knowledge in Calgary). I will say I never found the Saddledome's bowls wonky though.
