  1. We didn't need to bump a three year old topic for this.
  2. Happy High Holidays

    A happy and safe high holy days to the CCSLC's Jewish contingent. Happy new year!
  3. Unpopular Opinions

    The Coyotes currently look as good as they ever have, in my opinion. Their current look is a huge step up from the hem stripe-less Edge set they wore far longer than they had to.

  5. Happy High Holidays

    There's never a bad time to shout that!

  7. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    I won't be convinced of that until D'Low's in the Hall of Fame.
  8. 2017 NFL Season

    No, but LA has more upside than StL. Not to mention the stadium situation. Kroenke's LA stadium is self-financed. Whereas the plan to keep them in StL involved public investment. Investment they likely couldn't recoup in the foreseeable future. So that alone makes the move back to LA worthwhile.

    I still maintain the move from St. Louis was completely justified.
  10. infrared41's Best and Worst 2017 - NFL Week One

    I would give the top spot to Panthers/49ers myself. That's a great contrast of styles and colours.
  11. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    Agreed. I'd go a step further. Just revert the Titans back to being the Oilers. We live in a world with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Utah Jazz, and the Calgary Flames. "Tennessee Oilers" isn't that egregious by those standards.
  12. NFL 2017 changes?

  13. Stratford Warriors go symbolic with new logo

    The swan has local significance.
  14. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    The problem is I haven't seen much actual belittling. It seems to me like people who like what is admittedly "against the norm" take anything short of fawning over their "unique" opinions as "belittling." I don't think anyone here is adverse to discussion and an exchange of ideas. The notion that it's just the traditionalist side of things that shoot down any attempt at discussion/oversimplify the argument to a strawman is false. VikingsNotMinnesota's own recent posts prove that the "modern" fans are just as capable of over-simplifying and belittling the opinions of those they don't agree with as any "traditional" fan. In short? If you want productive discussion? Show you're (a general "you") are willing to engage in it.
  15. Stratford Warriors go symbolic with new logo

    That logo's amazing. Take away the controversy associated with using native imagery and it still works as an update over what the team was using before.
  16. Unique ice designs

    No. Not enough room for the "Thank You Fans" graphics they have to break out after a lockout every 8-10 years.
  17. MLB Changes 2017

    Montreal Expos 2.0 confirmed.
  18. NHL 2017-18

    The Adidas collar work well on a throwback design that originally used a crew-cut collar.
  19. NHL 2017-18

    Yep. ESPECIALLY an owner like Jeremy Jacobs.
  20. New Seattle Seahawks alternate logo

  21. New Seattle Seahawks alternate logo

    This is a tough one. The guidelines suggest that anniversary logos, tertiary logos, and minor uniform tweaks don't need their own threads. I don't consider the Seahawks' wordmark to be a secondary logo. I tend to view wordmarks as separate entities from the "primary, secondary, tertiary" system. It also seems like this new logo is getting a bit more usage than your normal tertiary mark. We poke fun at Twitter, but I think the fact that the team is promoting it there means it's something they want to promote as an important part of their brand. So I would say that it's completely fine to give the Seahawks' new logo its own thread. I'd separate the discussion myself but I'm in phone.
  22. NHL 2017-18

    I'm not assuming anything. I can go back and check, but I don't think I ever blamed Adidas for the Bruins switching to black socks. I'm well aware that this process is collaborative. I don't know who first floated the idea to change the socks to black. Adidas or the team. Whoever it was? It was a mistake. Meh. I missed those white sock sets entirely. Even then though? Gold socks first showed up in 1931. They wore them at home for all but four years between then and 2017. 82 out of 86 years in gold socks seems like a sufficiently strong piece of the team's visual history. I don't see any positive to blowing that up.
  23. NHL 2017-18

    No, but I think the Bruins' gold socks looked good. *shrug* Except the Bruins' look has evolved. And each evolution since 1934 changed the uniform, but kept the gold socks. I don't feel like posting that many pics, so I'll just leave this for reference. The Bruins' look has changed considerably since the gold socks first showed up in 1931, but gold socks were the constant. Save for a two year window. The socks themselves have evolved, but have always remained gold at home. It seems incredibly foolhardy and disrespectful towards the brand and the team's history to just disregard all of that.
