  1. Right. MLB was Northern VA (at the time the Nats were still in Montreal) and the NHL had a decent bid from Hampton Roads. My 1990's expansion scenarios tend to run together in my head. Arguably Northern VA could still probably support another team given the demographics, but I'd have to think MLB would prefer elsewhere like Charlotte, Portland, or San Antonio.
  2. Wasn't Hampton Roads, VA a VERY close 3rd place on the last expansion go around? They could be in play again.
  3. The Eagles mono black is almost as bad as the Niners mono black.
  4. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    That one whole season for Radulov in Montreal must've made quite an impression on you.

    a snow shoe might've made more sense

    Couldn't wait until Sunday huh?

    And here's where I point out that's irrelevant, because the Avs are just adopting a previously existing symbol of the state in which they play and are named after. Not to mention it's not even really the same "C" if you want to truly go the pedantic route.

    And here's where I point out the Colorado state flag (where the Av's C comes from ) came about two plus decades before the Cubs adopted the style C they have now.

    ^ and they wont until they collect the equipment to take on the trip.
  10. Minnesota Timberwolves

    I'll give you that the Raptors dumb "We The North" slogan does come off as saying that they and only they are the North. The Wolves on the other hand is pretty generic and "All Eyes North" is mostly just referring to the fact they're in the Northern US, and their logo is a wolf howling up at the North Star, which is one of the state's nicknames. If the Blazers come after them for that they look like a bunch of terrible, pendantic "well actually" nerds.

    They just need hem stripes to match the sleeves. When almost everyone else has gone away from the Edge-esque practice jersey, they went to it.

    If they could've legally been named the Knights, they would've been. They can't drop the descriptive adjective from the trademark at this point
  13. Minnesota Timberwolves

    Given Minneapolis/St. Paul's lattitude compared to that of Toronto, it would seem like a short argument

    Knicks are going to get really hot playing in black sweatpants.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    Teams with adjectives in their nicknames always shorten it for chants, merch, etc. See Leafs, Wolves, Sox, Jays, etc. I assume for trademark reasons, the "Golden" descriptor will always be part of their proper name.
