  1. Remind me to always check the AFA thread because...ho. ly. crap. The USFA scandal might be the craziest thing I've ever read, and somehow Jeremy Simmons ended up in the center of it. Then again, I'm not shocked Bubba would toss out the n-word so naturally. Here's hoping Simmons saved whatever cash he had so he can get a minority stake (unintentional pun, I swear) in an AFA team... Also, how in God's name did Cincinnati collapse so quickly? Did Reggie Hart age in dog years? Can't wait to see what happens with the Rebels--I know you've got something amazing cooking up.
  2. Jason Crowley is the American GOAT for sure. He's not Skippy Cleveland or David Appleby, but he's no doubt a legend. He did the impossible--made me root for a Boston team to win a championship.
  3. Man, the Lumberjacks fell off SO quickly. It really puts what the Shamrocks have done in perspective.

    Safeco Field is now T-Mobile Park

    If only the Bell System stayed broken up instead of merging back into AT&T, Pacific Bell Park was one of the best corporate names out there.
  5. Hopefully that monogram doesn't curse Chavez to be as terrible as Carlton is... Can't wait for year one to get started!
  6. Wow. What a classic. If anything else, I think Hudson has a little bit more fuel for his revenge fire...time for some fun in '91. Also, it's been so great to see Reggie Hart's career develop over time. I think he's the most transcendent player in AFA history; I can only imagine the endorsements he's racking up right about now.
  7. Don't know about the AFA, but Jeremy Simmons, the co-owner of the USFA San Jose Spiders, is black.
  8. Except for the Destroyers. Please for the love of God don't curse yourself with an eternity of mediocrity. ...yes, I am a Destroyers fan, why do you ask?
  9. Their socks are actually white!!!

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    I have a feeling we're going to analyze this look to death...but since we're here, I might as well add my insignificant opinion to the fray. Compare the black Marlins jersey to the Heat's black Vice jerseys (let's be honest, this comparison will be made a LOT.) The Heat's jersey didn't go black-on-black; they made the text/number colors bright and vibrant. Imagine how hard it's going to be for people in the cheap seats to see the Marlins' names and numbers! (Then again it is the Marlins, technically behind the plate counts as the cheap seats.) All the Marlins have to do is make the scripts on the black jerseys/hats white or blue and this look would improve 1000%.
  11. Gotta love how Philly has players named LeBell and Eagle. Crossing my fingers for an Imperials-Guardians Victory Bowl this time around!

    2019 Minor/Indy/Summer Collegiate Baseball Changes

    Dangit Brandiose, what did we tell you about having animals holding/swinging bat-like objects?
  13. I'll take it one step further: I predict they're going to have at least one #1 overall pick by 1993.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    I don't care how humid it's going to get in Miami, I'm predicting right now you're going to see those all over the place sooner rather than later. Those are HOT.

    Is this a rejected Pepperdine uniform from 1992? Good God, this is awful.

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    You sure about that one?

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    This reminds me of how the Raiders of my childhood era were so awful, the most popular jerseys were of the kicker (Janikowski) and the punter (Lechler).
  18. Of COURSE Bubba's starting QB is literally named Liberty. I'm sure he was looking for players named Freedom too, but soon learned Freedom Williams is a musician, not a football player. Thank goodness Utah won.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    That's literally the placeholder number font you get when the number font you thought you had isn't on your computer.

    2019 Minor/Indy/Summer Collegiate Baseball Changes

    They're not even that far apart; It takes about an hour and a half to get between Fayetteville and Kinston. Also, THANK GOD THEY DIDN'T GO WITH FATBACKS.
  21. I can see the 'Jacks doing "Flannel Out Fridays" or something like that.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    Ah, the good old days. When the Warriors' ownership was clueless and greedy, tacky jerseys ran rampant in the NBA, and my mom and I could watch some awful, awful basketball from the Oakland Arena's lower deck for $20 a ticket. My 9-year-old self still can't believe what the heck the Warriors (and the NBA for that matter) have become.

    New Logo for Regal Cinema

    Great, another logo that looks like it could be a fledgling Silicon Valley startup.

    New Travel (Trvl) Channel Logo

    Trvl? Trrbl.
  25. This gets my Oakland Stamp of ApprovalTM (may or may not be valid). I can't exactly place where I've seen that pattern before, but it sure as hell feels like Oakland to me. It makes perfect sense that the man who designed Nigeria's World Cup jersey designed this. On another note, where in the world are they actually going to play?
