    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Really liking these Earned jerseys. Every single one is either a great jersey in its own right (PHI, BOS, NO, TOR, MIA, MIL, etc) or an improvement on the similarly designed version (SAS, GSW, MIN). Hopefully the Nuggets find a way to keep the rainbow skyline jersey next year and we can see an earned version of that. I would love to see the rainbow on a navy, yellow or red base.

    2018 NFL Season

    This is incredibly flawed thinking. The police didn't request video, he wasn't charged, he lied to the team. What makes you think that the Chiefs have ANY POWER whatsoever to get the video from the hotel when that goes against their policy? The only reason this leaked to TMZ is because someone with access (likely at the hotel) broke policy and leaked it. The NFL and the Chiefs have absolutely no power to get the video if they are turned down. This is a big moment for the league and I'm damn proud of my team for taking such quick and decisive action at a time when so many others haven't.

    I know you're joking, but that style is real. It just happens to be a fan t-shirt not the warmups. https://www.fanatics.com/nba/boston-celtics/boston-celtics-nike-city-edition-elevated-marled-long-sleeve-t-shirt-gray/o-2403+t-03039486+p-69667595812+z-9-623636540 Although I haven't seen the OKC version available.

    It's been a great few days! Rox are hot and the Dbacks and Brewers have been doing their part!

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    In Denver the Nuggz have a pretty good following (of which I am a member) and bar none have the most loyal and knowledgeable fanbase that Denver has to offer. The Nuggets are not nearly as hopeless as you paint them to be. If we're talking about contraction you would put the Nets, Magic, Wizards, Bucks, Wolves, Hornets, Pelicans, Suns, Kings, Raptors, Hawks, and Clippers before the Nuggets on that list. The Nuggets have more history, cache, and name recognition than all of those teams. The fact that you can say something like that and not get more pushback really shows how much of a disaster the NBA has become.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Wow, huge downgrade... Purdue beat UA in the Foster Farms Bowl last season and although it isn't a big bowl it had an awesome trophy. Hopefully they maintain that despite completely giving up on the great imagery of the bridge. (You can see the bowl logo in H11K's signature a few posts up)

    This is going to be so inconvenient for the Nats when they're in the middle of blowing a division race...

    MLB: Ribbons Worn on Caps Across Baseball In Memory of 9-11

    Interesting that the Rockies cap is the normal Home and not the 25th anniversary (silver CR and squatchee) cap that they have worn at home all year. Will this be a sign of things to come with potential postseason caps as well?
  9. I am from Colorado and have always been a Nuggets, Rockies, and Rapids fan. I like the Avs and will root for them to a far lesser extent but hockey never captured my interest. My first sports fandom was the Kansas City Chiefs, as a three year old in CO watching the Chiefs-Broncos 1997 playoff game I allegedly told my mom I liked the red guys (my favorite color). As you can imagine, this got quite the rise out of friends and family and I've been loyal ever since. I honestly think if I hadn't gotten a reaction out of anyone my toddler self would've forgotten and been a Broncos fan. I went to CU Boulder and became a much bigger Buffs fan than I ever had been. I moved to IN in January 2017 for my MS at Purdue and thought I would give the local teams a few shots to woo me. I dislike the Colts far too much as a Chiefs fan to ever become a casual fan. I have grown to like the Pacers and would certainly call myself a casual fan but I'm not sure how much I'll carry that on with me to other places. The surprising thing is how much I have grown to love Purdue athletics. I honestly consider myself a bigger Purdue fan than CU fan now and would actually root for my new school over my alma mater and the university I grew up 20 minutes from. I plan to get a PhD and move to a new university. I am sure I will fully embrace my new school but am not sure how much of a fan I'll become relative to CU and Purdue. I think I will also become a much bigger fan of the local professional teams in that location because I will likely be there two times as long as I've been in IN. Perhaps surprisingly, I think moving away has made me far more attached to the Rockies, Nuggets and Rapids (if they could get it together) because it is a fun way to always recognize my roots.

    Sigh... y'all this is why I'm a Chiefs fan. All Bronco fans in Denver are this way!

    MLB changes 2018?

    The Rockies do very well in Denver, it's by far the most successful of any of the 90's expansion markets. This year the Rockies are drawing 36,832 per game and rank seventh in average attendance. They trail LAD, NYY, STL, SF, CHC and LAA, five of which are probably the premier teams in the league with World Series appearances in the last ten years and the sixth being the Angels who are still in the LA area. Comparing that to the Dbacks, Rays and Marlins they are averaging 10k more fans a game than Arizona and about 13k more per game than TB and MIA combined. The other 90's expansion teams haven't finished with a higher average attendance than the Rox since Arizona did it in 2005! The Rockies haven't finished outside of the top 15 in attendance any season since making the World Series in 07 and are typically in the top ten. All this has occurred in a time when the Rockies have played in 5 playoff games, winning one game, never winning their own division. Since 2007 (ten completed seasons). Each of these four teams have been similarly inept on the field over the last decade (with the exception of a few good Rays seasons) so you can't claim that it has to do with winning. The fact of the matter is that the Rockies in Denver are beloved and successful in a way that the Rays and Marlins never have been or never will be.

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    Our official school colors are Gold and Silver. The silver helmet and reflective silver number outlines totally fit with our scheme. The grey jersey and pants don't fit as well but I'm fine with them for a one or two game alternate look. The GGG look shouldn't happen though.
  13. Nope, most people have not said that any of those years. 02, 10, and 14 were all very good performances. A world cup in the US is a huge benefit that could really help propel the team through a few knock out games. No, not that crew. Pulisic will probably be the only player that figured in 2017 that will make the WC roster. We've already fired our manager, president, etc. I would be shocked if even 10% of US Soccer from 2017 has ANY presence in the 2026 organization. It's so en vogue to ridicule US Soccer right now. How trendy! Most of these comments won't matter because people like Cujo only pay attention long enough to mock their own country and watch a few WC matches. US Soccer will turn it around, we have never had more talent or resources to do it. If they aren't serious contenders by 2026 they certainly will be shortly after. We are the sleeping giant of the world's game. If we ever decide to get our heads out of our asses, make soccer accessible to kids, and provide a better pipeline we will consistently be a WC contender.
  14. Late on this, but that is a really stupid comment for a tournament that is 8 years away. There are likely fifth graders that will be on those teams by the time this takes place. Also, it took an absolute perfect storm disaster to keep the US out of this tournament. We should be challenging for the semifinals by 2026.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    Nope, I responded to that comment saying I wanted a HOUSTON Oilers-esque color scheme just with yellow replacing white. I may not 'remember' the Oilers (I was two when they left for TN) but I will never forget that beautiful color scheme and those fun teams they had with Warren Moon. I would imagine similar sentiments among 90's kids on these boards are similar. On that note, why have the Nuggets deemphasized the yellow so much? It won't be the base color for the city edition jersey and it plays a very minor role on the other three jerseys. This is the exact opposite of what I expected after the emphasis of yellow on last year's apparel and warm up gear.
