  1. MLB changes 2018?

    Love how the Nationals, Marlins, and Brewers basically said “we’ll be having none of that” to the BP caps
  2. 2017 NFL Weekly Picks Contest

    Uh, I guess I’ll say Seattle for tonight...
  3. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Oh, you would have loved it. That game was the first time in over 3 seasons that I left early.
  4. Unpopular Opinions

    Exactly like the Jaguars helmet. All of my friends love it (and we talk uniforms a lot, and generally they have decent taste), and then I go cry in the corner and question my life choices try to argue with them.
  5. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Oh, respect for our FO hasn't existed in quite some time.
  6. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Are you kidding me???????? My respect for Nike just went wayyyyy downhill.
  7. International Football 2017-2018

    In my (albeit early) predictions, I have Belgium winning (over Portugal no less). Eh. I guess I just want to see something new happen, although it will probably end with someone like Brazil or Argentina winning. As a German fan I just can't see Germany doing it this year, either. I have them bowing out in the semifinals vs Belgium.

    Pittsburgh tonight Rest to come later
  9. So, a crazy anti-gay group is what led to the USFA? ...Wow. That's all I can say.
  10. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Wait... seriously? I had no idea this even happened.
  11. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Magic wearing white at home tonight. I wish there was a rhyme or reason to it all, but I think the team is just riding whatever jersey they're hot in.
  12. Oh. Shows how much I know about Arizona, I guess.
  13. 2018 MLS Kits

    Yay, here's my cue to go on my yearly ramble on what I think should be third kits for the entire league! I'm going to go off of the current kits, and not speculate on what the new ones might be. Atlanta - Yellow/Blue/Yellow, chevron design in blue on the front (city flag) Chicago - Dark Grey/White/White, highlighter yellow-white-highlighter yellow side design (similar to Mexico's new home kit but not as subdued) (inspired by an actual firefighter's uniform) Colorado - Blue/White/Blue, white chest stripe (Colorado flag) Columbus - Red/White/Yellow, light blue accents (Columbus flag - I think they had the right idea with those horrible white kits, but executed it as poorly as they possibly could have) DC - Red/Red/Red, Two white chest stripes (Just using their final color as well as slight inspiration from the DC flag) Dallas - Black/Black/Black, oily pattern (for lack of better explanation) on the front (They are really trying to become "Texas' team", and Texas has a ton of oil) Houston - White/Orange/White, space shuttle pattern on front (someone did a really great concept based on this) LA Galaxy - Yellow/Green/Green, green sash on front (sort-of throwback) LAFC: Red/Red/Red, based on the "red carpet" (I'm going to assume a black primary and white/gold clash for LAFC, so this is what I would do especially because they say red is part of the color palette) Minnesota: Black/Black/Black, grey wing pattern (they really need a dark kit, and where better to start than their earlier designs) Montreal: Red/Blue/Red, Canadiens-inspired design New England: Green/White/Red, NE flag-inspired NY Red Bulls: Green/Yellow/Green, NJ flag-inspired NYCFC: White/White/White, navy pinstripes (Yankees) Orlando: Orange/White/Green, orange peel pattern (inspired by oranges and the Citrus Bowl)\ Philadelphia: Light Blue/Light Blue/Light Blue, gold chest stripe Portland: White/Green/White, green hoops (Timbers Army scarves and T2 kit) RSL: Yellow/Black/Yellow, black hoops (inspired by bees, as the Utah state flag has a beehive on it) San Jose: Yellow-White/Black/White, yellow and white halves on shirt, black hoops on socks (inspired by San Jose Clash kit) Seattle: Cyan/White/Cyan, inspired by 70s NASL kit SKC: White/White/White, navy argyle pattern Toronto: Blue/Blue/Blue, two white chest stripes, inspired by both Blue Jays and Maple Leafs kits Vancouver: Light Blue/Light Blue/Light Blue, basically just using the color they haven't used yet TL;DR - A lot of kits inspired by city and/or state flags, other teams in the market, or local inspiration. Others are just random (Whitecaps, Union)
  14. Premier League Weekly Pick 'Em

    Arsenal v. Spurs - This is a very even matchup, and I think this one ends even. 1-1 Bournemouth v. Huddersfield - Both teams are coming off of good 1-0 wins over quality sides, but Huddersfield is simply the better team. 1-0 HUD Burnley v. Swansea - Burnley is an underrated side that is facing an average Swansea team at home. 1-0 BUR Crystal Palace v. Everton - This Palace team is terrible. Everton are coming off of a good win. 2-0 EVE Leicester v. Man City - Basically the same thing that I said last week; City are currently unstoppable. Leicester will put up a fight, but it won't be enough. 3-1 MCI Liverpool v. Southampton - Liverpool are at home vs. a not great Southampton side. 0-0 West Brom v. Chelsea - Chelsea are coming off of a good home win vs Man United and facing a West Brom team on a bad streak. 1-0 CHE Man Utd v. Newcastle - Newcastle are not the best away from the friendly confines of St. James' Park, and facing a pretty good Man United at home. 3-0 MUN Watford v. West Ham - Two bad teams on losing streaks. Home field takes this one. 1-1 Brighton v. Stoke - Two evenly matched teams, but I have to pick the home team here. 2-2

    Seattle vs. Arizona Green Bay vs. Chicago (pretty sure this is the first time I've picked these clowns all season. Please don't let me down now) NY Jets vs. Tampa Bay Pittsburgh vs. Indianapolis Cleveland vs. Detroit LA Chargers vs. Jacksonville New Orleans vs. Buffalo Minnesota vs. Washington Cincinnati vs. Tennessee Houston vs. LA Rams Dallas vs. Atlanta NY Giants vs. San Francisco New England vs. Denver (I swear the Patriots have some sort of curse in Denver) Miami vs. Carolina
  16. I'm going to rework my character (mainly because I'm too lazy to dig back for it, although I do remember some parts) Albert Schneider is the lead sportswriter for the Orlando Sentinel and has turned its sports section into a world-class feature of the paper. Ever since the Stingrays came to Miami, he has covered them and PHL hockey has slowly gained more and more space on the front page. He once tried to bring a PHL-independent minor league to Orlando, which fizzled out very quickly. Therefore, Albert is voting for... 1) Houston - Houston is a slam-dunk bid that features a great prospective owner, seemingly good fan support, and a relatively new building to play in. Despite the Desperados currently on life support and the history of hockey in Texas, this one seems different. 2) Memphis - Memphis is a huge risk with the arena not yet on the way, but if they get their arena it will be a huge hit. Schneider feels that the pros outweigh the cons for this one. Schneider is not voting for: Atlanta - This was a close choice, but something just feels off about this one. Schneider thinks that it almost feels too good to be true, as subjective as that is. Phoenix - This has disaster written all over it. An owner that doesn't seem truly committed to the city (he tried to get a team to Oakland last round), an unknown fanbase, and 2 years in a tiny arena outside of the future home market. The desert doesn't seem like a great place for hockey, either. Tampa - Schneider feels that as good as the Stingrays have turned out, he doesn't want to crowd Florida with too many teams too early. Give it a couple years and it would probably top his list. Portland - Portland is a great choice, but he remembered one thing - the Portland Grizzlies of the GHL. They folded 17 games into their first season with attendance less than 800 per game and a terrible on-ice product (winging it - let's see how much I remember ). I'm actually surprised @hawkfan89 didn't mention them, although he may have just forgot. EDIT: Wow, @RightGuard just put up a guy with the same last name right when I posted. Pretty amazing when you think about it.
  17. 2018 MLS Kits

    Honestly no significance, I just want to see City in red again really.
  18. 2018 MLS Kits

    Are yellow and blue Rapids colors? Are red and white Earthquakes colors? Is grey an Atlanta color? Soccer is great in that you can use non-team colors on the change kit. If this can happen elsewhere in MLS, I believe that OC can do it as well.
  19. 2018 MLS Kits

    Orange would be interesting for sure, but I'm not sure how good it would look. I would really love for Orlando to get a new white jersey with red incorporated. Save the all-purple-all-the-time for the primary.
  20. CFB Interactive Concepts (Big Ten complete 11/20)

    As a Texas fan, I was really hoping that you would go a little more on Texas (maybe add a orange helmet and/or pants option). Outside of that, all of them look great, especially West Virginia (although I actually like their current font, and the only issue that I have with the current set is the black)
  21. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Yeah, we're definitely seeing the Magic bring out the old "pride" jerseys without sleeves and probably "O-Town" on the front.
  22. 2018 MLS Kits

    Normally we discus the new MLS kits in the 2018 Soccer Kits thread, which appears not to be up yet. It will be made when the first news breaks.
  23. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Ö2IL 70? That font looks horrible and ruins a pretty good kit (still wish they did it in German flag colors though, even if it's not as big of an offense that I thought at the start)
  24. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    Still better then their expansion mates have done.
  25. Premier League Weekly Pick 'Em

    @DScruggy729: You have Arsenal bolded but say in your explanation that you think City will win. Stoke v. Leicester - Two evenly matched teams on good streaks. Have to go with the home team here. 1-1 Huddersfield v. West Brom - Once again, home field strikes again between two reeling teams. 2-1 HUD Newcastle v. Bournemouth - Newcastle are a great team at home, especially when playing a Bournemouth who is currently in the relegation zone. 3-1 NEW Southampton v. Burnley - While Southampton are very good at home, neither team has any true lethal attacking power. 0-0 Swansea v. Brighton - Swansea is also very tough to beat at home, and is facing a pretty bad Brighton team that is currently overachieving. 1-0 SWA West Ham v. Liverpool - Liverpool should be confident with their recent performance, and West Ham can't stop anything. Liverpool's defense will give a couple away and West Ham will keep it close, but Liverpool takes it. 4-2 LIV Spurs v. Crystal Palace - Spurs are on great form at "home" vs a bad Palace team. 2-1 TOT Man City v. Arsenal - Man City is simply unstoppable at the moment, AND they're at home. 3-1 MCI Chelsea v. Man United - Just a gut feeling. While Chelsea haven't been in the greatest form, I think this has draw written all over it. 1-1 Everton v. Watford - Watford is reeling and Everton needs motivation while currently sitting in the relegation zone. 2-2
