  1. Looks like that cocky lobster scored himself a Pop Tart.
  2. I am pulling for them big time, but I only somewhat followed Vegas during the regular season... can anyone intelligently explain why they're doing so well so soon? It seemed like everyone was down on their chances going into the season... was this a case of overly-generous expansion rules or a combination of good scouting, following the Pens/Hawks speed-first blueprint, and unexpected career years from guys like Fleury and Karlsson?
  3. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Ahh good catch - Reich was '97 & '98, not '96 & '97!
  4. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    I find that the tags on fake jerseys in general sit too high from the bottom hem of the jersey, too.
  5. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I'm sure these have all been done by now, but... Fred Taylor w/ New England (09 & 10) Shaun Alexander w/ Washington (08) Andre Reed w/ Washington (00) Larry Johnson w/ Miami (2011) Kerry Collins w/ Indy (11) Frank Reich w/ Detriot (96 & 97) Jim Harbaugh w/ Carolina (01) ...and my personal sentimental favorite: Vinny Testaverde w/ Carolina (07)
  6. Minkah Fitzpatrick in Dolphins uniform

    Great work! Its nice to see the Fins tweaked jerseys will pop on the field.

    It shows most of the telltale signs of an overseas counterfeit, but even that is a deal at $10
  8. NFL 2018 changes

    The whole point of the "Rookie Premiere Photo Shoot" is to get shots of players in their NFL unis for trading cards... I've seen teams dress rookies in old unis because they hadn't released the new sets yet (Mike Williams & Josh Reed wore Kelly-era Bills unis in the '02 shoot, for example)... but what's the point of stocking up on images of players in unis they'll never wear on the field? Miami & Jacksonville have nothing to hide uni-wise. Really strange.
  9. Hall of Very Good

    I bolded the names I might co-sign. As a Buffalo almost-lifer, I would nix the rest. Most of these guys aren't a breath away from the actual HOF, which is what I think of when I thing "Hall of Very Good." Just QB's alone off the top of my head: Drew Bledsoe Tony Romo Donovan McNabb Steve McNair Randall Cunnningham Boomer Esiason
  10. Fort Myers Miracle to change name to Groupers for one game

    For real! This logo feels a bit morbid... look at that expression! You can almost see the fish trying to figure out where it all went wrong. This is like if the Bisons "Wings" logo was a live chicken being dropped into a fryer.
  11. Buffalo Bisons reignite our love for food-based baseball promos

    These will sell like crazy in Buffalo... I don't love the sketch-style rendering, but I think it's pretty slick how they fashioned the wing and blue cheese into a B for the cap. Bonus points for celery stick socks!
  12. The white-horned helmet is a tribute to our rich heritage; our pants, a subtle nod to our passionate LA fanbase. The jersey remains unchanged.
  13. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    It is still common for teams/players to re-use gear issued in prior seasons (sometimes even passed down to new players). I used to own a Bills Cordy Glenn game jersey with 2014 tags that showed damage I photomatched to a specific game in 2015. Maybe the Fins used the AARP patch in 15 or 16? Gotta love Savers - $50 for an old Champion replica, under $10 for a game jersey.
  14. Non-Referencing of Nickname in logos

    They (we) have carved out a nice small-market-underdog identity, but the Buffalo Bills are the absolute kings of this category. Without a shred of imagery linked to our namesake, our name falls somewhere between a pun and a Labatt's Blue war cry.
  15. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    I was gonna say, I don't know how somebody found the big Elvis logos to stitch onto an older model... purists must hate them, but some of the best-selling jerseys I see online these days are customized "fauxback" jerseys of current players in older styles, or even crossover sport jerseys (like an awesome Doug Flutie Sabres jersey from '99)
