  1. 2014-2024: The next 10 years in sports

    The teams that I root for will be really good and win a bunch of stuff
  2. HFBoards Bad Comment Aggregator Thread

    After a quick ride on the google machine, I have been convinced that zero is, in fact, not a number (if "number" is defined as something that has real world value.) It is a placeholder that exists only in arithmetic.
  3. Good Albums With Bad Artwork

    Because someone doesn't understand apostrophes.

    There's a logo thread going that includes people saying that they never knew the Devils' logo is an NJ, or that the Blues' logo is a music note.

    well you're no fun

    I get the Minnesota thing, but going from North Stars to just Stars is kinda lame. It's like the New Orleans Jazz becoming the Utah Notes. You just went from a name that reflected the location, to being as generic as possible. "Hey, our team used to be a reference to Polaris, and our team's location in a northern state, but what should we call ourselves now?" "How about Stars?" "A reference to...every star?" "Yes." "Cool!"

    No kudos to the Orioles for that thing. Ever. I'm sick of stars. It might be the most overused design in sports, next to the alternate logo roundel in hockey. Who would have thought that something 9 year old girls sketch in their notebooks for fun would make for such a popular design aspect for big, tough sports teams? The Astros, Blue Jackets, Capitals, a team in Dallas so bereft of originality they had to call themselves the Stars...I'm done with them.
  8. Small details that bother you

    The "i" isn't dotted.
  9. The logo's the worst part. A strangely-slanted, unintelligible D that apparently causes a black void in the center of the star? Who comes up with this stuff?
  10. Pure schlock. The logo is garbage. What a half-assed failure.
  11. Logos associated with failure.

    Eh, I don't know if all of these choices work. Blockbuster, sure, right now they're pretty much done, but they had a good, relevant run. WCW was number 1 for a couple years with that logo. I think of "failure" more as something that never had any success.

    I don't like teams using different versions of the same logo. Mainly the two maple leaf logos Toronto has on their jerseys.

    Great jersey.

    I'd take pretty much any Angels identity over the current one. I like that old alternate California logo they had on the sleeves. Now their uniform is a lesson in redundancy with the same "A" logo featured about 18 times between the hat, jersey, and sleeves. The lowercase "a" logo was pretty cool, too.

    It doesn't matter that they look like other teams, especially teams in the same city. People talk about how cool it is how the Pittsburgh teams all wear the same colors, so the Kings mimicking the Lakers or Raiders shouldn't be a problem. It's just that some of those looks haven't been good. The gold jersey is great, and the '98 set worked, as well. They've just gone the Dallas route of ditching unique for boring.

    These were really good looks. I like the unorthodox "Los Angeles" across the bottom, and the use of color is great. It's too bad the Kings and Ducks both currently have the worst looks in their history now.

    Well firstly I wouldn't consider the Islanders' logo classic at all, but anyway, I do have a problem with that jersey. I love the design and overall look, I just don't get the logo. They're not the Buffalo Buffaloes. We get it, your city is named after an animal, why does the logo have to be that animal, especially when the name of the team is different? The other logos you mentioned at least represent the city and team name. (Though they're better than the Buffalo Bills, naming the team after the guy who slaughtered thousands of those animals. I think I've said this before.)

    There's nothing special about the Yankees' uniforms. They're old and won a bunch of championships. That's all. The home whites are OK, but the road grays are not very good.

    This is absolutely hideous and frightening.

    I actually like this and am surprised at all the hate it gets.
  21. I guess it's nice that AEG made Downtown a bit safer, but the LA Live complex is a big disappointment. There's just nothing to do. It's barely even worth hanging around after a game let alone being a destination in and of itself.
  22. LA is more attractive. It's not just about stamping the name. There are package deals that include using luxury suites for business use, advertising, showing off new products, marketing to season ticket holders, etc.
  23. That's because, hello, there's no team in LA. You think Staples Center is filled to the brim with opposing fans at Lakers and Clippers games? Believe it or not, there are people that are actually from LA that are growing up without a hometown team. A LOT of people.

    It's interesting how the history of a team affects the way people think of their identity. To me the Montreal Canadiens' logo is an uninspiring C with an H in it. I understand the importance of the team, but I don't think that necessarily automatically makes everything associated with them great. I don't hate the logo or anything, but I certainly wouldn't consider it close to one of the best. I think sometimes people are too influenced by the gravity of a team's history to make a fair judgement on the way they look.
