  1. New Premier League logo

    Lion semi-passant guardant with ball > lion looking off at weird 45 degree angle.   I'm hoping this logo change doesn't mean a change to the shirt name and number font too. Although I suspect it probably will.

    Mike: I was going to ask if the Chargers moving to LA would affect you being a fan in any way - because I also follow them but have never lived there obviously. If they had to move I would actually prefer them to move to the East coast so that their games didn't start at midnight UK time. Since you already covered that though, what would the team have to do for you to stop supporting them in a Greg-esque Browns boycott. Would you pick a new team? I think you've said before that the Cardinals are your second team?
  4. The Silly Band Names Thread

    I was once in a band with a guy whose stage name was Warwick Hunt (say it out loud, see spoiler for "proper" pronunciation). With the rest of The Hunt Brothers: Mike Isaac (me) & Érik
  5. Report: Premier League Lion Going Away

    R.I.P. Cecil. I have to agree with everyone else here. To me, the lion logo on it's own represents the Premier League enough that you don't need any text with it for people to instantly recognise what it is. It is pretty much the perfect symbol and is a great modernisation of the original logo below. What are they going to change it to? A bunch of £££ symbols? I'm guessing you probably already know this but for anybody who doesn't, the champions do already wear a gold version of the sleeve patch like so:

    If I had to put money on it at this point I would say no.
  7. How you got here: Your life story on this message board.

    Fraser Davidson's helmet templates brought me here. At the time I was playing for a Football team in the UK and was making a few posters/flyers to help attract new players to the team. A google search for photoshop football helmet templates linked me to his thread.

    I think it speaks wonders to how much the new TV deals have been shared out more fairly than in the past. It also means that the Champions League clubs don't have significantly more money than the other teams. The "smaller" clubs have more power in keeping their best players and it is showing.
  9. Arsenal FC concept

    Have you tried replacing the gold trim with the redcurrant colour you are using? I kind of feel like there might just be a little too much going on at once. But then again it could just be my disdain for gold trim.

    I always knew you loved soccer deep down. Glad to see you finally embracing it.

    I'm impressed with how civil this discussion has remained. Thanks for the answers to my question too.
  12. Ceci n'est pas une politics thread.

    So Mr. Trump (lol) could be drumming up a load of support to then just drop out and pass it on to another candidate who may not have been able to get those people's backing on their own?
  13. Ceci n'est pas une politics thread.

    OK, so I'm more than a little confused about how US politics works. Essentially, individual people put together a campaign about themselves... and then afterwards each party picks a representative from who made the cut?
  14. 2015/16 International Football

    No. I mean the losers of the "Round of 16". Let's imagine that next week Real Madrid v PSG is drawn. If Real Madrid win and advance to the Champions League Quarter Final... Then PSG would in theory then be put into the next Europa League round. My problem with the current system is that a team can finish 3rd in the Champions League group without much difficulty and still have a chance at winning a trophy. Where another team can try really hard, finish top of their group and then be eliminated by being drawn against a top team in the round of 16.
