  1. PyeongChang 2018

    Team Not Russia has several NHL caliber players who "retired" early to go play for CSKA Moscow or SKA St. Petersburg in the KHL, while the other teams are made up of players either too young or not good enough to have an NHL contract. I doubt you'll find many hockey fans who are happy about not having a best on best tournament.

    4 is much too high for the Nordiques.
  4. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    As a Rangers fan, the Astros moving to the AL West changed my perspective on geographic realignment. The Lone Star Series went from a cute novelty that no one really cared about to an actual, legitimate rivalry. I'm now convinced that baseball would greatly benefit from Yankees-Mets, Dodgers-Angels etc. being rivalries with something more than 6 regular season games a year and bragging rights at stake. I'm also in favor of anything that gets the Rangers out of a division where they play 20+ West Coast road games a year, and that's not happening with the current American League. When it comes to the alignment itself, I don't like how they divide up the East Coast and Midwest teams, but there's not really a great way to group them up without at least a little weirdness. Here's my stupid idea, where the Chicago teams are broken up: Pacific: Seattle, Portland, SF, Oakland, Los Angeles, Anaheim, San Diego, Arizona Midwest: Texas, Houston, Colorado, KC, StL, Minnesota, Milwaukee, Chicago Cubs Central: Miami, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit, Chicago White Sox Atlantic: Boston, New York Yankees, New York Mets, Philly, Washington, Baltimore, Montreal, Toronto

    I feel like this logic made sense for the Edge takeover 10 years ago, where over half the league saw serious changes, but it doesn't really make sense now, where by my count only 7 teams have significantly new jerseys (CAR, COL, EDM, MIN, NSH, NJ, LV). I don't see most fans (outside of collectors) looking at these and saying "Wow, it has a new collar! I gotta get one."
  6. MLB changes 2018?

    The Indians desperately need a logo with more character than a block C if they're going to finally go through with getting rid of Wahoo.
  7. 2017 MLB Season

    The Rangers offered to host the games with the Astros being the home team and receiving the home team's share of $. If they had swapped the series, the games this week would be pretty empty because a good number of the people with tickets wouldn't be able to make it to Arlington on that short notice. Ultimately, while having benefit games in Texas would have been cool, having the games at the Trop is better for the Astros because they probably will still need a neutral site for this weekend's series against the Mets. This way, they'll be able to stay put in Tampa for the entire homestand.

    I like the Oilers oranges a little better than when I saw them the first time, but I feel like, if they had to go orange full-time, there's a sweet spot between the too-dark navy they went with and the too-bright royal they used last season. Of course, nothing was wrong with their primary set last year, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  9. If there really was a grand conspiracy against the league's Canadian teams, Connor McDavid would not be playing in Edmonton and the Senators would not have been a goal away from advancing to the Cup Final. The NHL is much too incompetent to pull something like that off.
  10. New Browns uni coming 2015

    I don't think Oregon State wears gray. Nike gave them black, orange, and gold (SF Giants-esque). Could be wrong. That's correct. You guys are right, its more of a copper/golden color. I guess I was trying to say that the right color of orange plays well with a more neutral color, like gray/gold/copper etc. when the third color is a darker tone like black/brown. I am just anticipating seeing some sort of new color injected in to these uniforms, a part from different shades of orange and brown that they are currently wearing. Could see like a metallic "rust" color...tie into the whole rust belt thing
  11. Houston Colt .45s jersey back....

    They are wearing that too, along with the Rainbow Guts jersey and 90s uniforms. The Astros are doing what the Angels did last year and wearing 5 different throwbacks for Friday games.
  12. CFB Playoffs?

    16 teams, the 11 conference champions and 5 at larges. First three rounds at the home field of the higher seed, last game at the Rose Bowl. Seeding is determined by a selection committee similar to the basketball tournament. If a team loses in the first two rounds, they can still participate in a bowl game.
  13. 2011-12 NHL Season

    So wait, the Stars have to spend another year in the Pacific?
  14. The way things SHOULD be

    There should be a playoff in college football. There should be video review in baseball, but the season should not be shortened and the playoffs should not be expanded. The Colorado Rockies should be moved to the American League, not the Astros.
  15. 2011-12 NHL Season

    I really hope they are called the Smythe, Norris, Adams, and Patrick Divisions (or conferences).
