  1. Baseball has only one predominately green team. But green is pretty common in football, basketball, hockey, etc. Brown is another color that I don't see too often at the professional level, but a lot of college teams will use it. What is the rarest color in sports? Not counting one-off promotions or throwbacks. I'm talking day-to-day color schemes. Would it be pink?

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    I'll believe Bill Belichick is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ when he wins a Super Bowl with Nathan Peterman.

    I like the bottom-right since I like the "SD" monogram and it uses more yellow.

    Full list of teams with neon colors?

    10 year olds are already in full emo phase.
  5. How do you know it was fixed? What proof do you have?
  6. I always liked this. This and their original logo are the only ones that actually seem to incorporate airplane/flying imagery in any way. This logo doesn't even really need all that much modernization.

    I'm sure it's been explained before, but with the BiG logo, why isn't the white portion yellow to match the rest of the outline? I get why it wouldn't be transparent, but having that one white part of the logo always sticks out to me.

    Reminds of how the XFL actually did give a few ideas to the NFL. Specifically, the "Sky Cam" was first used by the XFL and later adopted by the NFL.

    That's what I'm saying. All those teams had their deriders, but without the Internet (and 24/7 sports channels), you were exposed to it much less.

    The XFL may be making a comeback

    The #1 storyline he seemed to be crafting with XFL 2.0 is that all his players are "true-blue Americans" with no criminal records and who wouldn't even think to peacefully protest. As I've said before, I'm just not sure the whole "kneeling-gate" will even be much of a thing by next year. It really wasn't even much of a story anymore last season, because, as I expected, it was largely a manufactured non-drama and people have become distracted by other, more important, things. That was pretty much the crux of his presentation about the league's revival last year. I just don't see this league working out, especially if the AAF takes off.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    I agree with this, to an extent. Had I been alive in the 1950s, I wonder if I would have even bothered to care about baseball if my team wasn't the Yankees, since you knew the World Series would be someone (usually the Dodgers) losing to the Yankees. And in the pre-free agency days, what hope did your team have to ever be good? It's like with my Rams... I knew they weren't going to win the Super Bowl, so for me, just seeing them in it was fun. But I can only imagine being a fan of an AFC team and knowing at some point they won't get past the Patriots. It sucks, but hey, that's sports. Nothing lasts forever, and at some point in the future, some other team will be winning a bunch of championships and the Patriots will just be another team. Kind of like the Bulls today.

    Tie after the 12th inning? I didn't know that. I think it would work, honestly. There have been many extra inning games that just go hours and hours because no one can score. Most fans don't even stick around (can you blame them?) I remember when hockey replaced ties with shootouts. Maybe after three extra innings, baseball can turn into a home run derby.

    DH in the NL is something I'm not keen on but I have been saying for a few years now is probably inevitable. It's something that probably wouldn't actually bother me once its implemented, but as mentioned, it's one of the very few things that actually makes what league your team is in matter. As much as I really don't like marathon extra inning games, I don't think putting a runner on 2nd is a good idea. Absolutely crazy idea here: why can't baseball have ties? Why can't extra innings be capped to, say, three and if the score is tied after that, it's a tie in the standings? Ties weren't uncommon in the early days of baseball, and both football and hockey (for a time) were able to handle them just fine. Baseball already has plenty of tiebreaking rules... Obviously, for the playoffs, you'd play on until there is a winner.

    Remember back then the Internet wasn't really a thing. There probably was hate, but you were exposed to much less of it.

    Wonder if he subscribes to the "$500k a year is middle class" economic theory that our politicians do.

    It is what it is. This league has already been breaking promises. Not a great first impression.

    I don't really follow Foles or the Redskins so I wouldn't know. But given what a joke organization the Redskins have become, I don't think Foles will make them any better.

    And that's the danger with Brady. Doesn't matter how good he is, he's 40 and nothing will change that. He could be one major injury away from never playing again. It's scary, but that's football.

    There is a 1/32nd chance he stays with the Eagles. A 1/32nd chance he signs with the Redskins. A 1/32nd chance he signs with the Giants. And so on.

    If he's NFL caliber, he won't be going to your Legends. (Or the CFL). He'll actually be taking his talents to the Lions.

    Yup. Any company that doesn't do that is very shady. Don't be surprised when your e-mail gets "lost," the tech didn't "understand your request," etc. I had to deal with a company like that for months and it was miserable.
