  1. Unpopular Opinions

    One reason people (myself included) like the old Dolphins logo is because it looks dated and kitschy- it looks very "of the time and place" the team was created. Like...there's just something so perfectly late 60s/early 70s South Florida about it. Like you'd see it on a sign for some roadside attraction that littered the state at the time. Another reason, which is really tied in with the above one, is that it's whimsical. It's a dolphin wearing a football helmet. It's the sort of design you don't see anymore, where everything has to be a perfectly rendered cartoon snarling animal. Here? It's just a drawing of a dolphin wearing a football helmet. It's reflective of a sort of "lost attitude" when it comes to sports logo design. The final reason? A lot of people just don't care for the new logo. It's so wispy and bland. I've heard it described as a cruise ship logo, a travel agency logo, and a retirement home logo. It has a very corporate feel to it that just doesn't seem "right" for a football team. Maybe that's by design, it doesn't change things much. Either way? The poor reception it's gotten makes even imperfect previous logos seem palatable by comparison.
  2. He had to step up. No other way to say it. You need everyone firing on all cylinders if you want to best a team as talented as the Bruins, and Matthews just wasn't.

    I’m unsure if they can do a satin finish on a facemask. If not? It’s for the best that they don’t have a purple facemask. It may clash with the finish of the helmet. Black sidesteps the whole issue.
  4. I don't think anything could ever make you happy.
  5. That sucked. Congrats to Boston for managing to choke the Leafs out just when they had to. Go Jets.
  6. Yeah but I keenly remember one of those that they won Anyway hats off to you, Bruins faithful. It’s been a hell of a ride.
  7. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    This new Titans uniform would have looked dated ten years ago.
  8. Nothing is garunteed. I don’t know how tonight’s game will end up. Freddie Anderson could stand on his head. He could shots in from the parking lot. The Leafs offence could click on all cylinders or they could sputter out like they did in games 1 and 2. I do know this though. To all of you saying this should have been over in five? The Bruins had a shot at closing it out in five. Didn’t happen. So it’s game seven and anything could happen. All I can say right now is that I’m over the moon that the Leafs crawled back to even get here after the first two games. It proves to me that this team isn’t a mirage. They’re good. Resilient. And they’ll accomplish a lot in due time.
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    I’m a bully, eh? Can you point to a single time when I used my mod abilities in any way to silence you, or anyone else I’ve disagreed with? Can you name a time when I’ve used my mod abilities to discipline you or others I disagree with due to your opinions? Nah man. You’re just throwing out accusations with no basis because you can’t handle that there are people here who don’t kowtow to a corporate entity like you do. As for the need to “grow up”? Look in the mirror. I’m not the one whose sense of self-identity is tied to a corporate brand.

    Look. I’m sorry not everyone buys into your incessant need to white knight for a shoe company.
  11. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    To me it goes back to an admittedly nostalgic view of how things worked up through the early 2000s. When uniform manufacturers did just that, manufacture. When the team brands were the draw, not the manufacturer’s brand. So in my mind? Nike tweaking any team’s brand in such a way as to highlight the swoosh is getting into dangerous territory. I want to see a Seattle Seahawks uniform. Not Nike Presents the Seattle Seahawks.

    Every change you could make to make it look good would just push the look closer to the classic Browns set it replaced. Which begs the question “why did they even bother?” And you’ll continue to carry water for Nike because you’re a Swooshkateer with a baffling sense of loyalty to a shoe company that justifies poor design with “alchemy!” Anyway your argument falls flat here on two points. Point one: You assume we’re ok with the Adidas and Wilson examples above but not ok with Nike. You are incorrect. I find them all egregious. What you’ve done here is construct a strawman of someone who is ok with the Adidas/Wilson examples but not ok with Nike. It’s not an opinion I’ve seen anyone here express, and constructing said strawman usually means you know you’re working with a weak argument. Point two: Nike seems to be intentionally designing uniforms to highlight the swoosh. The neon green wedges on the Seahawks’ uniform and the “sail” striping on the Vikings’ uniform both frame the swoosh. The Titans’ uniforms are devoid of red save for the red swoosh. What we have now is different. This differs from Adidas, Reebok, Wilson, Russel, or Puma just slapping their logos on uniforms made by Ripon in Winsconsin. This is Nike designing and manufacturing uniforms from the ground up with the intent to sacrifice team brands to highlight Nike’s.
  13. They’ve clawed back from the beating they took during the first two games. They clawed back after losing a game four where they outplayed Boston. Toronto’s earned their wins, whether you like it or not. If Boston can’t even put away a team of “frauds” like the Maple Leafs? They have no shot against the G-ddamn Penguins. See, this Leafs team set franchise records for most wins, most home wins, and most points. You’re acting like Boston’s chocking against a team that barely squeaked into the playoffs. Nah man. This Leafs team is good. And they’ll burn you if you look past them. Like Boston seems to have done recently.
  14. The most interesting thing about Penguins/Capitals is the inevitable Urinatingtree video.
