  1. I could say the same for your empty attempts. My point has always been that the city and franchise own equal rights to the history. Again, it's not that difficult a concept to grasp.
  2. Because we all know that 1979 championship actually really happened in OKC. Those are the alternative facts according to the new world order
  3. I wanted them to simply be Brooklyn.
  4. Because Oklahoma City had absolutely nothing to do with that history. But people here seem to think you can "buy" history. Not surprising given our society's present day infatuation with revising history to fit individual agendas. That's just the world we live in. Nothing is true, nothing is false.
  5. That's perfect. Extra blue outline only clutters/muddies.
  6. This one, I felt, was one of the biggest designer fails. Doesn't represent the mascot at all, but instead adds in a beach/wave theme. Guess the designer couldn't come up with any good Padre graphics but had some cool wave graphics and thought, oh, well, it's San Diego so yes, that will work. Lazy, completely lazy.
  7. Oh, I thought they had changed to a white color rush jersey. So the white jersey without gold is just a fashion jersey?
  8. I guess the solution for all you Seattle SuperSonics history haters on the board is for: 1. Seattle to get a team 2. New Seattle ownership sells their new team to OKC and buys the Thunder and renames them the SuperSonics 3. Then Seattle and OKC trade their entire team/staffs to each other 4. Then Seattle sells back the Thunder history to OKC Finally, we'd have "factual" history in its right place since according to some of you on the board the only way you can claim history is to BUY it.
  9. Sorry, it's not as black and white as you'd have it be. We all wish that it were.
  10. You just see it one way and I the other. Doesn't make either of us wrong. I think it's just as dishonest to say the SF Giants had anything to do with the NY Giants. There is NY Giants history and SF Giants history.
  11. So if in my scenario I brought many of the staff and some management of Carnegies to Seattle, then that would make it the real Carnegies? I get what you are saying but I still think the location, environment, fan base, etc. is so deeply tied to the city that you can't honestly separate them. Once a relocation is made, it starts a new history.
  12. If I bought the old Carnegie Deli in New York, and opened a new deli in Seattle called it the Carnegie Deli, you are saying that the Seattle one would be the real one since I own the rights to the name? Seems crazy to me but I know there are probably 50% of you that think that's perfectly reasonable. Different people, different ideas of reality, makes life interesting.
  13. The gold accents are removed from the jersey so it actually matches the helmet, pants, and socks which all lack the gold accents too now.
  14. I only wish that was still the case. In reality, retail is of far greater concern to the NFL. Otherwise the Rams would have been permitted to remove the gold accents from their jersey this season.
  15. With my last name being Hawk I was all set to name my son: - Atlanta - Chicago Black - Seattle C Alas my wife didn't see the coolness in that idea.
