  1. MLB 2016 Changes

    It only "works" for the self-styled "editors" of Wikipedia. It does not "work" for any serious academic. Fact is that it is not peer-reviewed work. This "consensus" you speak of is reached by anyone who desires to be an "editor." There is no requirement that any of these people be experts in the fields these articles relate to. Which is what Goth is getting at. Consensus only means something when the people reaching it are qualified to make such a judgement. Goth is right. Wikipedia is a good place to search for decent sources. It is not a source in and of itself. And it won't be. Not unless Wikipedia becomes something fundementally different from what it is now. As to the subject at hand... Style guides include team colours. If that includes oddities such as gold for the San Fransisco Giants and "flesh colour" for the Minnesota Vikings? So be it. They aren't prominent team colours, but they're team colours none-the-less.

    I would like to think the Prince of Darkness would be more personable than that.

    Except it's not. Also using Wikipedia as a source is a bad habit you should probably break.

    Meh. Silver or bust.
  5. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    The Packers in a head to toe sublimated cheese pattern. Watch it happen because the NFL is where good taste goes to die apparently.
  6. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    I never said I preferred the new logo to the old logo. I'm saying the new logo is good in its own right, regardless of how good the old logo is. Jeeze, calm down and actually read what I wrote before overreacting.

    People using the term "iconic" to describe any logo they happen to like is always fun.

    Oh Tedward. Did you learn nothing from 2008?

    Iconic? Look, the old Panthers logo was good. Really good. Iconic though? Not even close. I'm not sure a logo can even be iconic when the locals don't even know the team exists.

    Cujo is just doing his "Skip Bayless of the CCSLC" act. Say something outrageous to illicit a response.

    Well "let's not piss off CCSLCers who think the late 90s/early 2000s were the high point of hockey aesthetics" probably wasn't one of their top priorities. You came in determined to hate anything they did. So it's hard to take your criticism as an accurate evaluation of the design. Was the old logo good? Yeah. Is the new logo good? Yes, in my opinion. Is it as good as the old logo? I don't think so, but that doesn't mean it isn't good in its own right.

    Well to be fair nothing they could have done would have made you happy.

    That's what we're trying to get across. That gold is an official San Fransisco Giants team colour. It's not used prominently, but it's a team colour none-the-less.
