    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Yes, one of the times where the nudity was absolutely essential to the plot.

    Good luck finding another guy that can lead the team to a 1-31 record!

    Football and CTE

    I just don't see the equivalency between a steady drum of hits and a one-time thing (especially an unintentional hit like Nittmo's). If you want to take away football because one bad thing could happen and ruin lives... I feel like we're all one bad spill on a bicycle away from being on house arrest ourselves.

    Football and CTE

    I don't think you can look at him as anything other than the seven standard deviation outlier. You could say the same about Kevin Everett. One hit, and he came reeeal close to dying on the field. I think you have to separate the things that are likely or probable to happen from the "lightning strike" freak accidents. Say it turns out that CTE affects only 10% of players... it's still a world apart from the freaky kind of thing that happened to Bjorn Nittmo.

    Football and CTE

    I'll bite... your version of his story simply isn't true. He had at least two previous concussions from football before the fateful play with the Bucs. "The preseason exhibition between the Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons on Aug. 9, 1997, wasn’t televised in the part of Florida where the Nittmos lived. Mary Lois stayed home with their two girls and wasn’t aware Bjorn’s opening kickoff had gone awry until the Buccaneers called after the game. Nittmo had two previously diagnosed concussions Mary Lois knows of. Both happened while kicking for the Montreal Machine in the World League. To be informed of a third head injury was disconcerting, sure, but long-term effects from multiple concussions weren’t considered perilous two decades ago as they are today."

    No, he's just happy to see you.

    NFL 2018 changes

    I agree that the Jags looked "big picture" good against the Saints. I could quibble over details (or lack thereof), but bottom line is they looked good. I think the thing that the groundswell of positive feedback is missing is that they'll be a black/white team approximately 87.5% of the time.

    "I never wore a seat belt when I was a kid, and I turned out fine!" The people that died in a car when a seat belt could have saved them aren't around to complain.

    "Bad Design" that actually works

    @oldschoolvikings's post: the Dodgers and the Giants. I think liking both uniforms is the popular opinion, but they both do things that we would rag on other teams for trying. That's what the thread should be... whether or not we actually fly into unpopular opinions territory is another matter. Here's another good example (I think)... adding black to the Lions.

    Hornets Go Full Retro, Unveil Throwback Court

    I like the idea, but the logo was never good. Kind of like if you judge the Lakers logo on its own merits, instead of it being the LAKERS.
  11. Obviously it's either the Dolphins or the Jets. The Dolphins have the old 90s rivalry, but I feel just about nothing for or against the Jets. They feel like the little brother team to the Giants, so I don't feel like they have as much New York gravitas.

    U.S. Space Force Logo Vote

    That bugs me, as well. NASA is and should remain a civilian agency for peaceful space exploration. The Space Force would be a branch of the military... the Space Force isn't going to Mars any time in the next 200 years. I like the bottom left the most, because it looks the least like NASA.

    Forgotten classic uniforms

    It's like finding a precious butterfly that everyone thought was extinct; I don't want such beauty to leave the world.
