    MLB changes 2018?

    Maybe bring back this one? Only semi-kidding. (Though I think this was more Spring Training, but it could still work)

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    Here’s the full set with equipment. Socks keep the Ducks flipped jersey striping trend, there’s a jade pant stripe, the gloves appear to be the same and notice the 25th anniversary logo on the helmet. Looking at this, I really do wish there was more use of the eggplant on the jersey... or just a straight throwback. Though the jersey has grown on me and I don’t know if I want one.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    The jersey has grown on me and I do think I like it for the purposes of a one season anniversary alternate, which it seems to be. I also saw a picture of the jersey in the sunlight at the unvieling and the eggplant is more noticeable. I’m in phone so I can’t really find it right now, but I think the difference between the black and eggplant will be more drastic than in the staged photos.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    I honestly don’t know what to think about the jersey. They did too much of an effort and yet seems like they didn’t make enough of an effort. Using every single colour in Ducks history is interesting too. It also appears this is just a 25th anniversary jersey as the Ducks are only using it for this season.

    NHL 2018-19

    Well the Flames and Avs are using their jersey colours. I’d wager it’s just a choice, I don’t know if any of the hat colours signal any jersey details.

    NHL 2018-19

    I don't think the Blackhawks red template is good for the inverted colours. Here's a quick concept of the red and black switching (spoilered for space) and I don't think it really works because I don't like the look of the red and white together on the hem.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    Honestly, all four of the Flames owned teams, including the Flames, have tremendous potential but brutal execution. All of the teams under CSEC (name of the ownership group) have great jerseys in their history but have all since switched to worse sets. The Hitmen with armpit colours (white on the black jersey and black on the white jersey) and black piping on the white with a brutal Rangers/dropsahdow style number font that doesn’t fit with the rest of the brand. I personally could take or leave the black logo on black. Then the Roughnecks have some pieces but could be improved. Both those sets are better than what either team wore immediately prior, but nowhere as good as both team’s best look. Much like the Stampeders and Flames.

    I do like the powder blues, but I think they’re only good in small doses and with the teams who’s colour scheme fits powder blue, unlike grey which is a more neutral sports colour for all the teams. I don’t know if I’d like to see a team go back to full time powder blues on the road, but a full time alternate set could be fun.

    Your favorite color combinations

    It’s not a common colour combo from what I can tell, but I really like black/teal/red. I also like light blue/black or dark blue.
  10. I’ve been following Ole Miss this year because they have a cool semi-documentary series following the sports teams on their YouTube channel and I’ve been watching the baseball one. So Hotty Toddy I guess. And UCLA is also there so go Bruins too.

    Canadian Premier League

    I do like this but, oh boy, another Canadian team forcing a maple leaf into a logo. Makes even less sense in an all-Canadian league.

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    I think Edwards would sell the team in the case of them moving to Houston and who knows what would happen with the other teams. Though all four have dedicated fanbases here in Calgary, though will major overlap. Okay before was the wrong word and obviously the Saddledome is priority, but it terms of amenities and fan gameday experience, McMahon Stadium is in worse shape than the Saddledome, especially compared to the new ones in the league. And calling it minor league is kind of flippant. But yes, an arena is needed and people here are in favour of a new arena, just not of what’s been proposed. By and large, I think most in Calgary are on the City’s side and not the ownership’s.

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Another distant Houston candidate the could be Flames with their whole arena situation. There was this article from Eric Francis (someone who has been obviously pro-ownership throughout the arena discussions and many Flames fans have probably rightly called him a shill/don't like him) back in December where he feels the Flames will be in Houston within the next three years and I have heard from a guy who heard from a guy who apparently knows people in the ownership (take that as you will) that there's more to the Flames and Houston thing than the public knows (also take that as you will). That Francis article is not good and he's clearly on the side of the ownership, but there might be some inkling of truth to this. Another wrinkle is that the Flames ownership group, CSEC, also own the CFL's Stampeders, the NLL's Roughnecks and the WHL's Hitmen, the latter two share the Saddledome with the Flames and if you recall the CalgaryNEXT proposal that started this whole Flames arena saga, the plan also included a new stadium for the Stamps along with the arena for the Flames, Roughnecks and Hitmen. The Roughnecks and Hitmen are directly affected by this whole arena discussion with the Stampeders also along for the ride (and personally, I feel the Stamps need to get a new stadium before the Flames do), so a forgotten issue is how the ownership's and the NHL's posturing with the City of Calgary will impact the other three teams.
  14. I want to dislike Vegas and the expansion, but I just can’t muster the same amount of hate that some people here have. Yeah, the expansion rules were stacked in Vegas’ favour, but everybody thought they were going to suck. I just kept waiting for the other shoe to drop and it never did. They’re playing insanely above expectations and have a great goalie. I do however, extremely dislike the people on Twitter (#pleaselikemysport) and Reddit fawning over parity and how this couldn’t happen in other sports... which might be true because the protection rules would probably be different.

    Well that’s just me misspelling the name. I do think it’s a clean look, I’m just not sure how I feel about three different logos, with each logo ignoring two of the colours.
