  1. Las Vegas 51s to Get New Name, New Everything in 2019

    This absolutely BEGS for an informal contest here... maybe as the "Las Vegas Strippers" though. No chance. There would, however, be a 7th inning condom race.
  2. I have a radical idea. Bear with me on this one... it's just a thought. Rather than have instant replay utilized as an element of high school football games, in any state, how about they take that money and... I dunno... maybe apply it to ****ing educating the kids instead?
  3. Hardest City for Fictional Concept Leagues

    Cincinnati sits on the banks of the Ohio river, yet I'm not familiar with any team that's tried to use that in its branding. "River Kings," or dusting off "Showboats" from the USFL is the best I could ever think up, though. St. Louis? Can't go wrong with Archers, Spirit, or Pioneers. Also another one on which a river theme could be used, though in their case it has been tried ("Steamers," MISL).

    Bill Veeck would've put 'em in shorts.
  5. The NFL's "Five Year Rule" Explained

    Not exactly. The Rams situation is a little weird, in that, at least under the rule, they could have petitioned for an immediate change: "Third, be it Further Resolved, that a Club may not change its regular home and away uniforms more than once every five NFL seasons, and may not change its third uniform design more than once every five NFL seasons, absent specific extenuating circumstances (e.g., Club ownership change or relocation) as determined by the Commissioner"
  6. CCSLC Championship Ring Thread

    I came across the Philadelphia Soul's 2017 ArenaBowl ring today. Wow. Did they really put a big budget into that one.
  7. Las Vegas 51s to Get New Name, New Everything in 2019

    Only if it's a shot of Joe Biden, wearing aviator sunglasses, with a flying scarf around his neck. Because, hey, it's Joe friggin' Biden. That looks like the Montgomery Biscuit was left out a little too long. Going back to the Stars would make sense. If they could get a casino tie-in they could really have some fun with it... the Las Vegas Flamingos, Las Vegas Mirage, Las Vegas Excaliburs. I always thought "Las Vegas 21" or "Las Vegas Dealers" would be interesting, though the latter might be inferred as drug related by the unknowing. Here's one name I'll give you any odds you want, on any dollar bet you want to place with me, that you won't see: Las Vegas Snipers. But if Brandiose is involved, it'll be a trainwreck of some sort. That much, we know for sure.
  8. The NFL's "Five Year Rule" Explained

    A lot of people here at the mothership reference the NFL's "five year rule" when it comes to changes in uniforms, helmets, logos and so forth. But what is the rule, exactly? Well, thanks to my bothering to look it up, I'm providing the answer for future, I'm sure scholarly, discussion. The "five year rule" is represented by a resolution adopted by the NFL's Executive Council as "2002 Resolution G-3." The formatting might get a little wonky below but its current form, verbatim (verbatim to the point where I'm even following the author's mistake in that the NFL's Constitution and Bylaws uses roman numerals, thus there is no "Article 19," but rather an "Article XIX"), is as follows... But wait... there's more! Only this I have to modify from the original text's layout because it's in table format... Isn't that simple to understand?
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    The elimination of the two-tone helmet in and of itself makes this a massive upgrade. The only way this could be more generic is if they used Varsity as the font. And you know what? I'm really good with that. Given that the 2010's will go down in pro football history as the fashion nightmare that the 1970's did in general culture? I'll take this over about 75% of the rest of the NFL right now. Bitch, bitch, bitch, people.
  10. Arena Football League Gets New Commissioner; Fan Yawns

    I'm betting my high school class ring cost within $100 of it. /graduated high school in 1987
  11. Arena Football League Gets New Commissioner; Fan Yawns

    Well, the way I see it, the league had to deal with that ****bag Ivan Soto, so they might as well get the shinola, too.
  12. A rant about the Seattle SuperSonics

    I'd actually forgotten that they'd built it... that was the one they were going to build had that NBA team (the Grizzlies, if I remember) had moved there. Okay. So they upgrade that a little, and bam - NBA ready. Kentucky Colonels, here we come again. I'd honestly expect something else entirely from either of these rather than resurrecting an old look. The name'll be the Sonics, the colors will be green and gold, but the logo will be something new and updated.
  13. Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    Something occurred to me a day or two ago: the AAF is taking a page from David Dixon's blueprint for the USFL, circa 1981; though they haven't made it public. Back in 1981, David Dixon's original plans for the USFL suggested prospective owners sign "name" coaches, offering each 10% ownership as incentive to sign on. George Allen took it in Chicago, Chuck Fairbanks in New Jersey, and probably Hugh Campbell in Los Angeles as well. Steve Spurrier's a part owner of the subsidiary entity they've set up to operate the Orlando team. That's the only rationale I can see for him doing this - he's got enough money, he's got nothing to prove as a coach - so why not be a part-owner?
  14. A rant about the Seattle SuperSonics

    If the NBA expanded to Louisville, they'd build a new facility. They'd really have no choice. The past generation or two has become far too fixated on the 'star system' mentality in the NBA, looking for a Lebron when they should be worrying about how the entire team performs. The 70's may have had its Julius Ervings and Moses Malones, but fans understood it was a team game. The Washington Bullets won a title during the late 70's. Can you name more than two players from that squad without looking it up?
  15. A rant about the Seattle SuperSonics

    Your "second" expansion city is... drumroll please... Louisville, Kentucky. You revive the Kentucky Colonels. The area is basketball bats***, and would be the only pro sports team in the city (a la Oklahoma City). Not a huge market, but the guy who holds all the Super Middleweight belts at the same time makes more money than the guy who only holds the IBF strap at Light Heavyweight a lot of the time.
