    I think the only way they would come back is if there are concrete plans for a new stadium. The Big O would only be a temporary solution like RFK for the former Expos.

    Maybe the Leafs logo on the main Jumbotron is the retro logo and not the slightly modified current day logo? I can't say for sure.

    Welcome to the 90's

    Simplify the collar and maybe lose the yoke, and this is a classic. As it stands, it's still an incredibly unique set. The thirds, however, were pure 90s greatness.

    Lifespan of new-age arenas

    Honestly, for hockey I'd rather be upper bowl behind one of the nets or close to center ice than high up in one of the corners of the lower bowl. When you're at an weird angle that close to the ice vertically, you lose sight of the play in a lot of areas because of the boards so you end up watching the tron for a lot of it. I'm ALWAYS gonna prefer going to a game to watching it on TV, though.

    MLB changes 2018?

    I thought these did a much better job of matching the limestone than a gold outline.

    There's a difference between selling deposits for an expansion team with the league's approval, and selling deposits for an existing team you're planning on relocating without the league's approval.

    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.

    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."

    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.

    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)_/¯
  15. 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.
