  1. Steelers Set to Unveil New Throwback Alternate Uniform

    Selling jerseys is the only reason they do this. Odds are it's the Batman jersey but I can see them doing one of the gold with black numbers jerseys they wore in the 1930's.
  2. 2018 NFL Offseason

    The anthem protests are going to be a big story this fall no matter what the NFL does or doesn't do, the current President and his politcal party are going to be making it an issue for the mid-term elections.
  3. Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    I think Ebersol is moving faster because he wants to take advantage of the sports betting ruling, if he's up and running next year as states get their sports books online he'll be the only one running the sport everyone likes to bet on while the NFL and NCAA are in the off seasons. McMahon is bringing back the XFL due to his ego, the thought that live events equal ratings then big tv contracts and that the Trump voters will flock to his league because he's forcing his players to stand for the National Anthem. McMahon and the XFL name has a 747 worth of baggage associated with it, there's no way that Ebersol or anyone starting up a spring league could have any association with them.
  4. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    That schools had the book thrown at the by the NCAA for donors buying clothes, meals, plane tickets for parents and so on, while Michigan gets away with all expenses paid vacations for the football team is hilarious.
  5. Any team in the NHL could have gotten MAF for a mid round draft pick last year.
  6. Degenerate Gamblers Celebrate

    This ruling is the biggest reason the AAF and XFL2.0 are starting up.
  7. The Steelers threat was more of moving out of Allegheny County to either Washington County by The Meadows or Cranberry in Butler County, the Steelers moving to LA was bs from sports radio talk show hosts.
  8. The only reason they have a multi-time Stanley Cup champion in goal was because the Penguins had a younger Stanley Cup Champion goalie on the roster. If Fleury doesn't get concussed before the playoffs three years ago, Murray doesn't get called up and stays in Wilkes-Barre full time until the start of this season. The Golden Knights aren't getting this far with Jeff Zatkoff between the pipes, who is the goalie the Pens would had had exposed in the expansion draft had Fleury not been hurt in 2016.
  9. Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    Remember the biggest reason the AAF and XFL2 are starting up and playing in the spring is to profit up the upcoming legalization of sports betting(pending the Supreme Court decision), everyone needs to stop thinking about these leagues in a traditional sense. Also the state of Georgia has big tax credits for Film and TV shot in the state so the AAF could be taking advantage of that with a team in Atlanta, don't be shocked if their production facilities end up being there.
  10. Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    I bet it was more McMahon finding out about this league and rushing the announcement of the New XFL.
  11. Wasn't the right field wall in old Yankee Stadium 295 feet from home plate, the ballpark was specifically built for Ruth to hit home runs in. You can't say that Bonds and Aaron faced more "crappy" pitchers since a decent number of good to great pitchers weren't allowed to play in the Majors, pitchers back then had less rest between games, pitched way more innings and relief pitching wasn't really a thing yet.
  12. Just wanted to show off the uniforms the team I coach wore at the Roller Derby World Cup last week, this was the second time I coached Greece at the World Cup. The helmet cover worn in one picture is to signify who the jammer (person who scores points) is, most of the time teams where a star but for the World Cup teams could wear a symbol of their country, we used Athena's owl. The logo was designed by an artist/roller derby skater based in Florida and the uniforms were designed and supplied by Frogmouth, who outfitted most of the teams at the World Cup. It's up to the players on the cut of jersey and length or pants, so most teams have a mix of tank or sleeved jerseys and long, medium or short pants. I'll add photos of more interesting jerseys in the next few days.
  13. Alternate SPORTS! History Thread

    If Hunt or Bud Adams were able to buy the Cardinals there's no AFL, if any of the other original AFL owners bought them the AFL would have still have happened. If say Ralph Wilson buys the Cardinals there's no Buffalo Bills and there's most likely an AFL team in Cincinnati or Miami a few years earlier, sorta like the NFL poaching the AFL Minneapolis franchise which caused Oakland to get an AFL team. Hunt had the vision for the league and had the deep pockets to keep the league afloat like Bud Adams with either of them out of the picture the AFL doesn't happen.
  14. Alignment history question

    The Cardinals would have blocked any move out of the NFC East at that time, they didn't want to lose home games against the Cowboys and Giants.
  15. Where is the 83rd Grey Cup?

    You're correct! I believe that winning players even get it for a day like the Stanley Cup.
