    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    It feels dated, but at least they didn't cave into pressure and revert to the teal look and/or "Florida Marlins" name.

    "Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are Actually Bad" is, in and of itself, a bad opinion.

    49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    I’ve seen people on this forum claim they found dazzle more comfortable than matte Nike materials. They’re not wrong. You’re not wrong. It’s just clear to me at this point that neither is objectively more comfortable than the other, and people need to stop brandying their personal experiences around as if they were universal truths.

    2018 NFL Season

    It's not like other teams aren't trying. KC didn't go out there expecting to let the Pats score on a late game drive to win it all. Also the Eagles beat them in the G-ddamn Super Bowl. What do you WANT, exactly? First off, what do you want? For Brady to just not try and win? Come on now. Secondly? I gave up on the Tom Brady hate train a long time ago because I realized it was pointless. Not in a "the Pats will win anyway so I might as well bow down" sense, but more in a "I might as well enjoy a generational talent" sense. I realized that if I stripped away the sports-hate? Tom Brady is just this generation's Joe Montana. Would I have hated Montana and the 49ers if I were alive and watching the NFL back in the 80s? Probably! The fact that I wasn't, however, means that I can have an outsider's perspective looking back. I can look back at Montana's career without sports-hate clouding my judgment. I can appreciate Montana's career for what it was. It was when I realized this that I realized that hating Tom Brady and the Patriots was pointless. Say I was born in 2017, and not 1987. I would grow up being able to appreciate what Brady and the Pats did without that sports-hate getting in the way. So I decided to stop being a curmudgeon. I can just appreciate the best QB of his time and the best team of the past 15+ years do what they do. Do I still prefer if they lose? Yeah. Do I still root for my Chargers to beat them? Yep. Would I ever get a Brady jersey? Not on your life. I'm just not gonna sit here and be bitter about the fact that I got to watch a generational talent do generational talent things as a fan. I mean I only caught the tail end of Gretzky and Jordan's respective careers. Why let stupid sports-hate stop me from appreciating Brady's career?

    Well that KC/NE game ended like I thought it would.

    It's a creepy looking Muppet monster. If you think it's fine? Cool. Don't start talking down to people who don't share you opinion though.

    Forgotten Rivalries

    Well thank G-d it’s a divisional rivalry again, both to appease a blood pact the Wings made with the League and to justify cramming as many O6 teams into a division with Florida and Tampa as possible!

    USL New Mexico is... New Mexico United

    The only message should be “a soccer team from New Mexico.” The revised version does that better than the one they went with.

    I like them
  12. This is just disgusting. I'm trying to imagine what my reaction would be if Adidas did this to the Leafs. I don't think I could remain calm talking about it. I'm sorry Nike had to ruin half of your team's uniforms, Lakers fans

    Los Angeles NFL Brands Discussion

    No, they moved because Dean is an entitled pissant who refused to negotiate with the city of San Diego in good faith. Maybe moving out of the joke that is the Stub Hub Centre will do them some good, and make them less of a laughing stock in LA. I'm a fan of the team and not the locale, so I would obviously like to see them succeed wherever they are.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week Five

    I disagree. The team represents New York City. One of, if not the, most famous cities in the world. The brand ought to focus on the locale over the nickname.

    Leafs/Blues.
  16. That's understandable. And to the uniforms at hand? I mostly do agree with BBTV, that the Lakers should have an iconic look you can count on seeing every night. That being said? I also get that this isn't tenable in the modern NBA. I would be ok with the Lakers going crazy with a purple jersey with black pinstripes and wordmarks if the three primary unis (standard purple, gold, and white) retained the classic look. They ruined the standard purple with black side panels though, and it makes this new alternate worse in that context.

    Dean's been running the team for years. Alex Spanos dying changes nothing.
  18. I'm not calling you a troll. Or implying your info is bad in any way. I'm not trying to have a dig at you. I'm just saying that these Lakers alternates look bad, and it's a mistake to mess with a classic look like this.

    No politics please.
  20. Did you forget how that one ended too?
  21. @Teal Yeah, yeah, but your designers were so preoccupied by whether or not they could they didn't stop to think if they should!
