    That's still better than it being on the uniforms.

    Famed anime director Masami Obari - known best for making giant robots look cool as f*** - made this poster for the Japanese release of Pacific Rim Uprising. It's simply glorious.
  3. Well, that was crap. But I'm not especially surprised. The Sharks absolutely deserved this.
  4. Biggest Downgrades in History

    And to top it all off, the first one you posted was already a downgrade from the earlier version with the shield logo. The crown is weirdly designed and all I could see was a frightened pair of eyes staring back. Even now I can't unsee it. But yeah, minus the script this was a much better look for them. I'll never understand why they swapped the logos around.

    I actually like both sets with black. The green, black and gold North Stars jersey is one of my all time favourites. Weirdly with the Flames, I love the red, black and gold scheme on the dark jersey, and yet I don't like it so much on the white uniform. I don't know why, but something about it always seemed off and I can't quite put my finger on it. Nothing says "Brian Burke is embarassed about our past" like going to an extremely minimalist black and white look and having almost no visual connection to the thing they share their name with. Their branding at the time consisted entirely of wordmarks. They've gotten better since introducing actual logos into the identity, and while the uniforms are certainly more colourful than what came before, they're still not particularly good.

    This Power Rangers poster hit all the right spots for me and then some.

    I've ranted about this enough already. Not even a Stanley Cup win could magically erase my frustrations at this rebrand.
  8. NFL fan stereotypes by team

    I don't think we're allowed to post images that happen to contain swearwords but this comic perfectly sums it up. The more I think about it, the more I feel that sports fandom rivalry is meaningless.

    Ugh. I think it was said somewhere that all teams are getting alternates, so maybe it'll return next season.
  10. NHL 2017-18

    The addition of black really worked well for that North Stars set. If anything, the white shoulder yoke was where it went a bit overboard. Agreed.

    The Leafs jersey is nice. Interesting that they've gone with the white version of the logo instead of the blue one.
  12. NHL 2017-18

    I think it would make a neat basis for an alternate uniform. But I also think the current set is good enough to not need an alternate.

    I imagine we'll see proper Throwback Nights return following this first season of Adizero.
  14. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    A part of me isn't too keen on Seals. It's one thing for a team to relocate and take their name with them or modify it to fit their new locale, but an expansion team sharing their name with an old team that played in a different city would be a bit weird. On the other hand, it's not as if the original Seals are ever coming back. Seattle Seals or Seattle Sea Lions works well enough. Neither would be my preffered choice but I'd be fine with it I guess.
