  1. NFL 2018 changes

    There's a commonality between the 3 pairs of pictures: I'm OK with the Cleveland Deal, right up to saying that today's Browns are the same franchise and organization as the original Browns, as we all know that's not true. That includes records; while Jim Brown played for the organization/franchise now known as the Baltimore Ravens, he did it as a member of a team named the Cleveland Browns while wearing a Cleveland Browns uniform. The city of Cleveland fought for--and won--the right to hold the Browns' name and records for a future franchise, while the original Browns organization forfeited its right to the Browns' title upon leaving the city of Cleveland, leaving the title for a future Cleveland organization (which was founded in 1999). But let's keep the organizational lineages straight, please. The Ravens organization's roots as an NFL club originated in 1946 as the (original) Cleveland Browns organization and only became the Ravens in 1996 when they left Cleveland for Baltimore and had no other choice but to pick up a new name. While it's true that I'd rather see the Baltimore Browns (despite wiping out the great identity of the Baltimore Ravens) in a universe where the original Browns left Cleveland--we have the Los Angeles Lakers, Utah Jazz, Indianapolis Colts, Los Angeles Dodgers, and so forth, after all--I'm OK with holding a team name and its associated records within the city if it means that much to the city to keep the team name. The 1999 expansion team would become the Bulldogs or something, but given that everything's been said and done and a time machine hasn't yet been invented to go back and change it, I'm happy to settle with this except for calling Cleveland Browns v1.0 and Cleveland Browns v2.0 the same organization. (Of course, I'd rather have the original Browns franchise stay in Cleveland and the Colts in Baltimore to avoid this awful historical revisionism.)
  2. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Guys! Guys! Compromise! Let's take the shape of Admiral's concept and the color balance of Thomas Hadfield's concept. Or just make the eyes and nose on Admiral's eyes and nose teal.
  3. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I largely agree. I do like that teal (or even gold) flake helmet (yes, gold flake) and would like to see it return, if nothing other as an alternate helmet (if the NFL ever allows alternate helmets again), but the Jaguars going with a solid black helmet is a smart move as well. As for the logo, I feel that their logo is just a little too over-designed, but I feel that their original logo is a little too under-designed. I'd love to see them give the original logo an Arizona Cardinals/Minnesota Vikings/Carolina Panthers-type treatment with some elements of the current logo. I'd also like to see them wear teal jerseys full-time again, but we'll see.

  5. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    I'm disappointed that Metropolitans is not among them, but given the name of the baseball team in New York I'm not entirely surprised. Kraken is interesting, while I like Evergreens, Emeralds, Rainiers, Seals, Totems, and Whales (but I have no clue how they avoid looking like Vancouver with an orca involved).
  6. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    Those Minnesota North Stars jerseys reminds me of the Starter Dallas Stars jerseys that are heavily green and gold, with nary a trace of white. I'm not the biggest fan of the logo in the arm stripes--perhaps numbers would fit there better--or the fact that this was billed as the regular road uniform, but I really like this concept as an alternate. I like the emphasis on gold here and wished that the Stars would do that with a third at some point in the future. (I also have one.)

  10. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    But I imagine getting approval from a Canadian Junior team would be considerably easier than the U.S. Army. Still, I'm not holding my breath.
  11. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Then maybe, just maybe, they'll be renamed the Las Vegas Knights. But I'm not getting my hopes up.
  12. I believe it was. I didn't know that it was you that did the original thread. It's great to see this concept come back, being more fleshed-out. I knew the name "Guardians" was used somewhere in the original thread (but not used for Charon), and I do remember seeing the Jupiter Kings, Luna Apollos, and Mars Warriors somewhere in there. A couple further color ideas for the teams I mentioned, when their time comes to enter SLB: - Ganymede Giants: Colors of Brown, Cream, and Orange (or Gray). Based largely off of the color of Ganymede itself and some possible inspiration from the San Francisco Giants. That said, looking at the Jupiter Kings, teams matching the color of their home world is not a requirement. - Triton Retros: Make no mistake, the Retros' colors should be Purple and Teal, but given that there are already 2 teams in SLB wearing purple (Ceres and Jupiter), I'd be inclined to emphasize teal here. - Pluto Guardians: Slate Gray, Peach (or light blue), and Brick Red, again inspired by the colors of the (dwarf) planet and its largest moon, or the color of Pluto's sunset.
  13. Future Retired Number Banner Concepts (NHL Added)

    Mehmet Okur is the only other former Jazz player I can see getting his number retired at this point in the post-Stockton-to-Malone era.
  14. Without knowing exactly where SLB goes in the future, I have some potential names should certain locales land teams.* Triton: Retros. Named for the fact that Triton orbits is parent planet, Neptune, in a retrograde (clockwise) direction. Colors: Purple and Teal (as in, 1990s retro) Ganymede: Giants. Named for the fact that Ganymede is the largest moon in the Solar System (it being larger than Mercury) and for an alliteration of sorts. Pluto (or Pluto-Charon): Demons, Reapers, Hellhounds, Guardians. Could be used for the fact that Pluto got its name from the Roman god of the underworld (with the first two), a blend of this and the coinciding of the Disney character being named for the planet (playing off Cerberus), and the final one being that possibly the Pluto-Charon system lies on the outer reaches of the Solar System and could be home to a military base. *This is more spitballing at this point. Admittedly I'm not entirely clear about the entire lore of this league's history and what worlds are inhabited enough to house a team in the year 2510.
