  1. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Marc Bergevin tied for last place. According to what I read on social media, Habs fans for the most part agree with this. I agree too... NHL GM's ranked.

    That's orange, right? It's the correct way to go for sure, but that color appears darker on my screen, for some reason. The overly abundant navy outlines need to be toned down a bit. They need to feature teal and orange primarily, with navy accents kept to a minimal. That concept looks a lot more like the classic Miami Dolphins without having to revert to an old, somewhat outdated look.

    The issue with this one is that now it goes from 5 colors to 6. The puck in the crest and the black circles on the arm patches would have to be navy blue as well. If the issue was too many colors, this wouldn't help. The concept looks decent enough. But the inclusion of navy also sets the remaining colors off a bit, the burgundy would look darker, the blues could appear as if one of the shades got washed up. Maybe it's just personal preference. But I'm just not a fan of how the new colors would clash with each other. This combo just doesn't work, imo.

    This would make a nice crest on the front...

    5 color combos usually don't work. But the Avs are one of the exceptions, imo. I don't think the burgundy or blue shorts work. The Avs have settled for minimal use of blue on the roads, with blue being used only on the upper collars, number trims, and socks. This is probably a very minority opinion. But when I look at the full uniforms, I don't think the burgundy and silver full arm stripes are a problem, when I see the full uniform with the collars/numbers that have just enough blue to complete the look. A lot of teams have slightly different socks. See the St-Louis Blues. Also, see the outcry on the boards here, when the Bruins eliminated their inconsistent but traditional signature yellow socks for Pittsburgh Penguins socks...

    Winnipeg managed to get the Atlanta Thrashers under a Gary Bettman lead NHL, when their team had enough problems they had to relocate. Quebec already has a new arena that's bigger. Some people around my area still bring the Nordiques return up, despite all the petty things I read about Bettman.

    That's what I thought.

    Why never Quebec?

    Maybe they wanted something simpler and they got tired of having a logo with all the little rugged edges. The reason I'm assuming this is because the Avs also eliminated their Bigfoot secondary shoulder patch, which had somewhat of a fur background with plenty of little fur lines. They went with a C with a circle in the middle instead. It could be that.
  10. The XFL may be making a comeback

    Minor League football games here are aired on smaller TV stations, in non-primetime spots. When it's on a smaller scale, it's less pressure imo. The XFL could be another platform for players to play, if they don't make the NFL, etc. But if Vince's goal is to make this thing become huge or if they need to become huge to survive, I don't see how they get it done. Previous track records of the likes of the WBF, WWF New York, the XFL 1.0, just about all of Vince's previous non-wrestling endeavours have flunked. How's this gonna be different? If they aim for goals that are easier to reach, maybe it could work somewhere...
  11. The XFL may be making a comeback

    I just don't see where it's going to fit, to be successful. I definitely don't fully know every other market. It just hard for me to imagine a new league gaining a certain amount of TV audience, looking at the current football landscape. Maybe there could be a demand for XFL football somewhere, even though I'm not seeing it.
  12. The XFL may be making a comeback

    Like it was mentioned on a BASS episode, the whole Xtreme phase is a product of the mid-to-late 90s/early 2000s, no further than that. But there's more than one reason I don't see the second go-round working, just like it flopped the first time. I don't think we need yet another Football League. The NFL cannot be competed against. For NFL alternatives, we already have College football, which consists of over 100 teams, countless games every Saturday, we have the CFL, and we might still have the Arena Football League, if they air their games on TV somewhere. In Canada, we also have U Sports Football, the Laval Rouge et Or games are aired here, maybe they're aired elsewhere too. Did I leave one out? The wrestling community already justifiably complains about WWE airing too much wrestling with 3-hour long, thrown together shows that drag too much. Do we really need more Football and watch Vince make the same mistake he's making now, as he enters buisness into another sport??

    Throughout the Sabres history, they've always worn a shoulder patch... With that said, they really need to make this beauty the permanent secondary logo for the Sabres. Don't throw this logo to waste!
