  1. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    Already mentioned most: Left: Western Metal Right: The Warehouse Center: The scoreboard at Wrigley
  2. New Helmet enters the NFL

    I got temporarily blocked from a major helmet manufacturer's facebook page arguing helmet safety. They touted a new helmet with facemasks specially designed for just that helmet to reduce head trauma...and then touted how you could interchange facemasks from other helmet models to suit your personal #swag. They're dangerous. They don't give a damn about player safety unless it means they can tout some new, safer model at a ridiculous price point.
  3. New Helmet enters the NFL

    He'll, they might be worse. Decals can at least stretch. The paint on those shells is going to be shatter city come November in northern climates I'd imagine.
  4. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    If they had done this but with the players' number, I'd dig it. Thw Lions wordmark there is a miss I think.
  5. NFL 2017 changes?

    These would be better.
  6. NFL 2017 changes?

    Things like the OLED helmet make me cry as an engineer. Interesting? Sure. Happening anytime in the next two decades? No way.
  7. Playing the Chicago Wolves - definitely a shame they couldn't blow a 3-1 lead, tie the game at the end of regulation, and get blown out in a shootout all while LeBron watched and pretended to care about another sport/team because he needs to pretend he gives a :censored: about Cleveland.

  10. Football Helmet Visor Discussion

    Interesting choice of words... And yes, those visors look silly.
  11. Amercian Flag on Football Helmets

    There's not a lot of visible real estate inside a shell - I'd imagine that's why a label is on the exterior. Every helmet I had when playing football had a level of redundancy with the warning in that both a label was placed and there was a raised, molded warning usually in a similar location that labels are placed. For my HS, the label addition was a bit of a pokeyoke to ensure that that helmet was actually reconditioned in the offseason. For pros, it would make more sense (IMO) to have it molded into the shell in a similar spot and just to buy a new helmet every season for every player (which is likely happening a large % of the time anyway). That said, good luck removing the warning with all of the CTE and other health-based lawsuits the league faces.
  12. Amercian Flag on Football Helmets

    I mean - it is his site to do with what he wants *shrug* On the flag decals, I don't like the faux patriotism that came post-9/11. It's here to stay, unfortunately, but doesn't bring anything to a sense of nationalism/patriotism. It's just another marketing tool (which is fairly disappointing IMO).
  13. Draft picks in their new uniforms 2016

    He's not. It's just a jersey for him being their second round pick. It will definitely change when the #s matter.
  14. NFL Hockey-Style Hoodies

    What is the material like? Does it have a standard cotton hoodie feel or a more "athletic" material? How is the fit? It's mostly a standard cotton hoodie - the tan areas may be just slightly rougher. The numbers/lettering are all stitched. The colors are exactly as shown in the picture. It may run a tad large in sizing (which surprised me a bit), and the hood is fairly large. Some stitching isn't perfect, but they're all strong stitches from what I can tell.
