  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I could get behind a purple jersey with gold note and numbers. But I've ranted enough about purple in the past. I need to move on.
  2. NBA Changes 2017-18

    If the Jazz absolutely had to use that design, it should have been a green jersey, with a white note, and yellow number. Truly awful stuff there.
  3. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    New Utes helmet this week colors the block U with a Ute tribal design
  4. NBA Changes 2017-18

    That would be infinitely better than reality... "[Haslem] said research has shown that the uniform color that young people buy most right now is a light blue, followed by navy." To the current scheme: "The NBA used national focus groups — though none in Utah — to test the marketability of the colors and logo. It didn't hurt that the Jazz's green throwback jerseys during the Hardwood Classics program last season were wildly popular." I also wouldn't doubt that Larry Miller's relationship with BYU also influenced the holdover of navy.

    Can't wait to see how the yellow and orange uni's will round out this set!!! Just kidding! Kill me.
  6. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The Jazz, like every team, are dollar driven. The switch over to blue only happened because the team management received a report saying that blue sells better than purple. The note came back because it sold better than the mountains for a couple of consecutive seasons. We can only hope that the team sold enough purple shirts during the '97 team anniversary game this year to open their minds....
  7. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    The jersey is fine. A lateral move. The pants are a god-damned embarrassment.
  8. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Sponsor-less kits are the :censored:.<--How does that overwhelmingly positive word get censored? I mean, really.
  9. The Most Satisfying

  10. Best College Football Uniforms in Each Conference

    Nailed it.
  11. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Now they just need to fix the colors...and win a championship...cough
  12. Ringling Bros. Circus to Fold

    Horse racing has enough money, power, and global fans to sustain itself for a long, long time. Plus it helps that it doesn't have to share public venues that can become targets of boycotts and social pressure Bull riding has always had a small, but stable group of sponsors, so it is likely to hang on to the meager attention it maintains. Like Ringling though, they dont operate their own venues. The big factor will always be money. If you're a loser, like Ringling was, then it's going to be easy for people to take a political stand against you.
  13. Logo dust up in Salt Lake, as the local private college changes its logo based on votes from...high school students. Near as I can tell, alumni hate both logos... From this to The new W logo is said to be based on the windows of the campus' first building; conveniently rendered in their original logo. It also appears that the new logo is one of the "skins" type of logos like TBS and Taco Bell are now using.
  14. And just like that Utah hires EWU's Troy Taylor to replace Roderick and Erickson as OC.
  15. Utah has "let go" Offensive Coordinator Aaron Roderick. Meanwhile, Asst Head Coach Dennis Erickson (yes, that one) has decided to retire from football. Could this herald the end of the annual November collapse?
  16. Movies, Movies, and Movies

    It's an Alien Sequel. "Run" is exactly the thought I had in mind...
  17. More proof the world is going to crap

    That's because they dont want to have symbols everywhere reminding them they dont live in America. U-S-A! U-S-A!
  18. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    How did they miss such an obvious name...?
  19. 2016 NCAA Football Thread

    Losing gimme games at home is November tradition.
  20. New Taco Bell logo

    The new font is just so god damn "professional." It makes it seem like Taco Bell is a rival for Pacific Bell, not the up-late stoner's choice that the wilder font and colors inhabited. That's certainly intentional, but it feels like they dont know what makes them strong as a brand....or they dont like it.
  21. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  22. 2016 NCAA Football Thread

    Accute Novemberitis.
  23. 2016 NCAA Football Thread

    Fun fact. Utah is one of only six teams to be ranked in every CFP poll...the others being: Alabama, Clemson, Baylor, Ohio State, and FSU
