  1. 2017 NFL Season

    You must have missed where someone in the Lounge said "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" is not a Christmas song.
  2. NFL 2017 changes?

    I thought about that, but from eyeballing it, I don't think it would be able to stand up to the deeper orange.
  3. NFL 2017 changes?

    I say just keep the navy in that logo. Having a logo-only color isn't the worst thing in the world, other than that threat of a navy alt hanging out there. The Chiefs and the Blackhawks do just fine. Maybe tweak the shade of the darker blue.
  4. Pantone Color of the Year 2018 is...

    It's not "bad" taxonomy. The allusion to "ultraviolet" by calling it "ultra violet" is 100% intentional.
  5. HFBoards Bad Comment Aggregator Thread

    I can't tell if this is for real, or "illustrating absurdity by being absurd".
  6. Pantone Color of the Year 2018 is...

    What about 2009 and 2006?
  7. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    I think we're overthinking things if we're letting "whose mascot would win in a fight?" disqualify names. Either it's a good name, or it's not... on its own merits. The only reason to consider other teams in the league is to avoid overlap.
  8. NHL 2017-18

    Yeah, I think that sums it up. The silver needs to be in addition to a good striping pattern, not replacing part of the navy. I wonder if they could use silver as an outline on the yellow, the way people here often want the Flames to use black?
  9. Worse expansion draft terms for Seattle? For $650M, I'd want Connor McDavid.
  10. NHL 2017-18

    I hate hate hate hate hate the way they do the stripes on the current jerseys. I don't even think the silver is necessarily the problem, but the pattern is awful. It's very close to the Stars' college jerseys, which are bad enough to make me feel unnerved when I look at them. Thankfully, the Sabres filled some of that uncomfortably large gap in the middle of the stripes, but it's still bad. I want royal, but I could probably live with it if the blue always looked like the yokes and pants look in that picture. I feel, though, it normally looks like the midnight navy in Lehner's numbers.
  11. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    The Sabres waived Matt Moulson and sent him to the minors... but to the Kings' Ontario Reign, not their own Rochester Amerks. He wasn't traded; he was just assigned to a different team's affiliate. That's a real "please take your money and get the hell out of here" move.

    I am, and I am.
  13. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Somebody should come up with a place to catalog Sports Logos on the Net. I bet they'd be a kajillionaire.
  14. Rare team matchups

    I posted this one before as a snippet of a longer video, but here's a good look at this one-off matchup: flying skate Canucks vs. goat head Sabres. It only happened twice (one home game for each team), so this is probably the only time these two jerseys saw each other:
  15. NHL 2017-18

    I'm not a fan. I don' think the yoke stripes work the same way with a phantom yoke as they do on the white jerseys. I also don't like what they did with that NY shield.
  16. Rare team matchups

    Kinda like how Jagr overlapped the Christmas Devils by two years, and is still chugging along. And wore the NHL 75th anniversary patch, as well as the NHL 100 one.
  17. Good to see you around, ColorWerx. And I have always loved that idea for the Cardinals. It would be miles better than their BFBS.
  18. NHL 2017-18

    There are some nits I could pick about the Sabres' jersey, but it's mostly good. I don't think you absolutely need yellow on both, but between the names/numbers and the yoke, that's a whole lot of blue-and-white. The NY is dumb and this whole game is a sham, but you guys already knew that. For the throwback/fauxback consideration, the Sabres didn't really have a lot of places to go for a real throwback. The slugs are a no. The time probably hasn't quite come for a goat head throwback (although hopefully at or before the 50th). Other than that, they've only really had one home and one away. They did the straight throwback in the first Winter Classic. They did the "inspired by a local pre-NHL team" thing for their 40th anniversary jerseys. So, it seems like they went with "good jersey in classic colors". Not perfect, but I'm just glad they didn't completely botch it.
  19. As long as the Bruins aren't the home team, it doesn't sound that strange for a one-time event.
  20. NHL 2017-18

    Agreed. The new dark jerseys are (mostly) how I remember the originals through rose-tinted nostalgia glasses. The black in the striping on the 90s jerseys has no business being there.
  21. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    And if they had actually done their best to put together a team to compete this year, I wouldn't have really batted an eye. The fact that they've done it through injuries and dumb GM moves is borderline unbelievable.
  22. 2017 NFL Season

    The Boldin situation was super weird, and I'm glad the team isn't just releasing him. He signed a one-year contract, and then retired THIRTEEN days later. Now, he wants to unretire only two months after that? I don't like how NFL contracts normally seem to work against players, but I'm on the team's side on this one. The Bills could use a receiver, and you signed a contract on August 7th; just play in Buffalo. Marcell Dareus was very talented, but inconsistent and lots of dumb off-the-field stuff like being late and street racing a teammate. Didn't seem to be a "team" guy. His contract probably also played a role, but I'll admit I don't know how much a DT should be making.
  23. 2017 NFL Season

    Draft picks are ridiculously over valued in the NFL. Edit: But if he plays well in Jacksonville, it can turn into a fifth rounder! Wow!
