  1. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Umm...does this guy really know what he got himself into? And who calls owning the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes a "dream?" Well technically nightmares are still dreams...

  3. All Purpose Stadium Thread

    When I played high school volleyball Bloomfield High in Bloomfield NJ had their court in a long-since discontinued indoor pool gymnasium. Very tight sidelines and low ceilings but it worked.

    Shouldn't that make them the Glendale Coyotes then? Heck, they probably should be considering the amount of money Glendale payed for them... A great partner? That's the understatement of ever.

  6. Small details that bother you

    Could it be representing the New York City skyline of the 1960s, when the logo was made? Nope, it's basically a representation of the tallest building in each borough during the team's inception From the Mets media guide every year since at least 1998: The circular Mets logo, designed by sports cartoonist Ray Gatto, was unveiled on November 16, 1961. It has gone virtually unchanged throughout the history of the club. The shape of the insignia, with its orange stitching, represents a baseball, and the bridge in the foreground symbolizes that the Mets, in bringing back the National League to New York, represent all five boroughs. It's not just a skyline in the background, but has a special meaning. At the left is a church spire, symbolic of Brooklyn, the borough of churches. The second building from the left is the Williamsburg Savings Bank, the tallest building in Brooklyn. Next is the Woolworth Building. After a general skyline view of midtown comes the Empire State Building. At the far right is the United Nations Building. ---------- Actually, the one thing that's bugged me as a lifelong Met fan is that the script is off between the M and E. The tail of the M should seamlessly flow into the lower case E.

    o rly? Either it's time for a new welcome sign or it just turned 1977 in Edmonton...

    Not this London... THIS London... What about this one?

    The Devils aren't going anywhere.

    Plus Huskies football and basketball. The latter has the most schedule overlap and serves a different market, but you can fit 10,000 for basketball at Hec Ed. Even still, I think the NHL could reliably cobble together 9-11,000 fans each night, no problem. I'd go twice and buy a jersey. I still don't get why that's preferable to 20,000 a night in Quebec, but whatevs. Oh come on. You know as well as I do that football isn't referred to as one of "the winter sports". I know, I know, it is still played after December 21st and you can potentially host a couple of playoff games, but that's basketball and hockey--the arena sports. It's baseball in the summer, football in the fall, the other two are "winter". And yes, there's college, but I meant pro. And college football is done save for a bowl game a little over a month into the NHL season anyway.

    Not that they'd ever be more popular than any existing team or a potential Sonics 2.0, but isn't it fair to say as nuts as Seattle's fans are about the teams they already have that they couldn't muster up at least some sort of following from scratch? Instant geographic rivalry with Vancouver, the only winter sport in town (at least for now), and all that? I'm not saying it WILL happen but COULDN'T it happen to some degree?

    And that's why as a "legit claim" for #1 OR #2, Detroit is really the only one I could make a case for.
  13. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    I can only really come up with Detroit. Denver could but that would only be "who's the best right now other than the Broncos", and not an "always" case. If they were to get an NBA team I could make a case for Pittsburgh and even that is only because the Pirates have been so awful for two decades now (I know they're good this year). Historically though, the Pirates would still trump the Pens. Any other 3-big 4 cities, were they to acquire the missing one however, I don't think it would happen in.

    I'm surprised nobody wants to harken back to those 1919 Seattle Metropolitans...

    In this instance, a non-corrupt judge would be the unlikely thing. This once again begs the question of what someone who obviously dislikes Canada is doing in charge of a HOCKEY league. Quebec City would be the far better and more feasible market. But we moved Columbus to the east! We can't ever change it again you guys...
