  1. Inaugural Baltimore Ravens Uniform Discourse

    As a fan of the Ravens since 1996, I never once made the connection to Nazis, goth rockers, or bikers. I'm not sure how anyone could even come up with something like that. I will say that the original uniforms were terrible and are much better now.

    I think you're right.
  3. Say it ain't so, Joe

    What I'm having trouble with is understanding why, if Paterno knew about what Sandusky was doing as far back as the 1970's, why did he keep him on the coaching staff for 20+ more years? Is it possible he just didn't believe the accusations or was he so focused on football that nothing else mattered. I'm really having a hard time understanding this.
  4. Best Uniform Tournament

    NFC East - Giants NFC North - Packers (put the Bears in any other division and they'd easily make the list) NFC South - Saints NFC West - 49ers AFC East - Bills AFC North - Ravens (would have said Steelers if they still used the block numbers) AFC South - Colts AFC West - Raiders
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

    Truthfully, I'm not crazy about 5-7 bowl games either. I'm old school like you and feel like we should probably have about 10-12 bowl games like there used to be. Actually, on one hand I don't mind the idea of more exhibition games (more football!), but I wish there was more distinction between what is essentially a "real" bowl game. With the way the new playoff model is unfolding, I'm hoping that those six bowl (and maybe 8 or 10 if the bracket expands) come to be viewed as sort of the benchmark for a successful year. My ideal system would be an 8-team playoff and 10 bowl games. That means that the top 28 teams are left standing at the end of the year, giving great quality football to all of the bowl games.I think adding more teams into the playoffs would extend the season too much What if they played the first round this weekend? It would give us some meaningful games to watch instead of bowl games featuring teams with 5-7 records. Everybody outside of Army & Navy will have had 2 weeks of rest, and it would leave enough time to rest up for the next round. The scheduling for the next rounds wouldn't have to change and wouldn't extend any deeper into January than it already does.
  6. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    Agreed, it's a terrible look. Both teams look like they're wearing pajamas with the feet in them.
  7. Looks like the dude in the orange Marlins jersey who got so much attention last year is back.
  8. NFL Changes 2015

    So that's what that is. I noticed it looked like some weird 3d effect, but at one point it looked like it was actually moving. Why bother filling it in with computer graphics? It looks fine with just the outline.

    Well to be fair most BCS teams are comprised of HBCs. Huh???
  10. Fix-It Friday thread

    I'm wondering if you put the current dolphin back on the helmet and rotated him so he is more upright like the old logo if that would look better. The helmet striping looks great and makes a huge difference! I think it should be transferred to the aqua pants, though, to complete the look. The numbers don't really work for me. I think something more of a traditional block type number would work. Overall, it's way better than what they are currently wearing.
  11. College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

    I'm having a hard time believing these Louisville uniforms are anything other than a sick joke. They have replaced the Tampa Bay Bucs as the worst football uniforms I've ever seen. I can't believe anyone thought they would look good. BYU-Nebraska is a great looking game, BTW.

    Here's an example of SMU's mismatched numbers: Check out #48 Now compare that to #4 Also notice that each shot shows a player wearing #10, but they are different fonts.
  13. College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

    They're wearing 2 different fonts. Most of them have a standard block type number but some have numbers similar to what the Dolphins had (minus the dropshadow) before their rebrand.
  14. College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

    Some SMU players are wearing jerseys that have a different number font than the rest of the team.
  15. College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

    That's a nice clean look for Georgia State. I like it. Charlotte's numbers are a mess. Most of them are unreadable blobs.
