  1. NFL 2017 changes?

    Wow, Ryan looks like he's thinking, "I should have tripped over my own feet on 2nd and 3rd down, then we could have kicked the field goal and gone up 11"
  2. NBA Nike: Classic Edition Options

    Me thinks Aaron Dodson is a 90s uni-lover.
  3. NHL 2017-18

    I will say, I will forever dislike Reebok for introducing the no hem pajama bottom. Ruined so many jerseys and over the 10 years they had the contract, the Blackhawks(hem stripes,heavy logo and all) won 3 cups. Throw in the Bruins,Penguins(this year) too.
  4. NHL 2017-18

    I agree, I just wish the blue sleeves came up a little higher. I'm glad they also kept the strings on the numbers and piano collar.
  5. NHL 2017-18

    Great post. This post should just be put up on the comments "Hall of Fame".
  6. Dallas Cowboys going dark at home?

    I also like the Giants road unis. At least they stay true to their color palette and for the most part, it seems most of us like the classic looks so if people think the home blue jersey is boring, at least the roads add a little something to the table. Plus, as we all know if you follow this site, the have won 2 Superbowls in those uniforms so it will always live in Giants history( Do you hear me LA Kings,Cavaliers etc.). Works for me.
  7. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I actually also like the Hawks identity. I agree though that the mixing of the shorts and jerseys is terrible. It also may to do with the fact that I absolutely despised the uniforms they had before these( those boring red and navy for navy sake jobs). The volt color is calm enough to where it doesn't take over the jersey plus it gives a nod to the Maravich jerseys.
  8. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    Solaris, it was like you were reading my mind. Did anyone ever consider Vegas when expansion was discussed? If so, I sure as hell don't remember. You mean you mean to tell me any of the Canadian places discussed i.e Hamilton , Quebec or anyone else north of the the border wouldn't have been a better choice! As far as the US, KC and Seattle seem far more attractive than Vegas but as wildwing64 made reference to.....it's all about the money.
  9. Las Vegas Raiders Brand Discussion

    bosrs1, Thanks for the info. At least I can make some sense out of this Vegas move and expansion team.
  10. Las Vegas Raiders Brand Discussion

    Excuse me for being unformed here but I've never had the pleasure (or nonpleasure, HEHE) of being to Vegas. I always thought that it was a city in the middle of a desert and mostly made up of tourists. First, from a football point of view, I always thought they were afraid to have a team in Vegas because of sports betting and second, I can think of 4 or 5 other cities that hockey would flourish in. I guess my real question is...does Vegas have enough residents to create a stagnant fan base?
  11. MLB Changes 2017

    What font would you say is used on the the 1969 home Padres jersey(brown letters trimmed in yellow). Thanks!
  12. MLB Changes 2017

    This is terrible. I couldn't think they could get worse.I really want brown but if I couldn't have it, the 2004 unis were great. It opened the park(not that that always matters)(WOW that that), and it covered what the Padres always use as an excuse. "San Diego is a blue town". Oh really! It also has a light blue sky,and sand. Those sand uniforms were also a great touch(not gray). When I went on the ballpark tour in October, the tour guide said Petco Park has been open for going on 13 years. I couldn't believe it, how fast time goes but my point is that would have been 13 years , the longest stretch of a Padres uniform. Damn i'm pissed. I received my authentic brown jersey today that I ordered thinking it would more prominent but I'm sending it back. I have every Padres jersey up until 1990 and the 2004 sand but no for money from me Padre jersey committee.
  13. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    I did read what he typed and my only point was that every logo he mentioned was from right after the 4 team WHA expansion. The Canadiens,Bruins,Oilers and Sabres are easily identifiable logos. I think most of us can say any logo after the expansion explosion, has to be questioned.Every time a see a list of best logos in the league, it's usually the same. I will say I hate teams winning the Stanley Cup terrible versions of their uniforms(SEE KINGS) but no one cares except us jersey nuts.
  14. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    I agree with daniel75. The Islanders logo has more thought into into it than the Canadiens, Bruins, Oilers and Flyers. Ill give the Sabres credit for coming up with a duel-meaning logo. The only thing that's trapped in the 70's (if you want to say it) is the color orange. If it was red instead of orange, it would look timeless.
  15. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    Well. Seattle would have been perfect(as far as an American team goes)....great fan base(even soccer),western conference and a Seattle/Vancouver rivalry would flourish.Oh, and what happened to Kansas City, I thought their arena was ready to take the Islanders. Vegas is a tourist town. I don't see it building a following because people just fly in and out. I still feel Canada should have got the team and I feel this came out of left field. I never remember Vegas on a short list when it came to to mentioning expansion. Also,"we so called hockey fans" want to watch quality hockey, not watered down hockey.
