  1. Orlando's uniforms scream early 2000s with the drop shadows, but I actually really like them. Not too crazy about the numbers on the helmets though.

    Unpopular Opinions

    Pro Bowl uniforms should always use monochrome uniforms/pants because of all the players wearing different helmets. To me personally, it would make differentiating the two teams easier at a glance.

    Patriots. It'll be closer than people are saying though; New England never blows teams out in the Super Bowl.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Wild-Card Weekend Colts 27, Texans 16 Seahawks 20, Cowboys 10 Ravens 23, Chargers 20 Bears 24, Eagles 21 Divisional Round Colts 34, Chiefs 31 (In Andy Reid we trust....to choke) Rams 30, Bears 20 Patriots 21, Ravens 19 Saints 34, Seahawks 28 Conference Championship Saints 35, Rams 31 Patriots 31, Colts 23 Super Bowl LIII Saints 38, Patriots 27 ------------------------------- What I'm curious to see is if a team, like the Saints, win, will Drew Brees retire on top? I wouldn't be surprised either way, whether he decides to play one more year with his stellar surrounding cast or ends his Hall-of-Fame career just like his the other (soon-to-be) enshrined QBs of John Elway and Peyton Manning.

    2018-2019 NFL Potential Super Bowl Uniform Matchups

    If the Rams make it all the way, do they wear the throwbacks? Are their throwbacks their designated home jerseys or are they an alternate? My understanding is that the league alleviated their uniform policy for the Rams since their mismatched uniforms last year were such a disaster. But who's to say that the Rams don't wear white and the AFC team wears their home uniforms?

    2018 NFL Season

    At this point, the most likely option is Bell signs the franchise-tag this coming week and plays from Week 10 on. After the season, the Steelers let him walk. Unless he gets a low offer in free agency, the Steelers should get a 3rd-Round compensatory pick at the end of the round. There really isn't anything else the Steelers can get. Most likely, they were asking for a 2nd-Rounder or better at the trade deadline, which no team offered. No (smart) team would trade for Bell before FA since the Steelers probably won't resign him. If the Steelers transition-tag Bell (which is a whole other scenario albeit unlikely, this article explains it pretty well), they can't trade him nor would they get a compensatory draft pick. And with the emergence of James Conner, the Steelers could use the $12-15 million of Bell's salary on a player in the defensive secondary or another linebacker.

    2018 NFL Season

    Steelers @ Jaguars has been flexed out of 8:20 to 1:00 PM. Bears vs Vikings has been flexed to the night. Dissapointed personally because I'm going to the Steelers/Jags game and was looking forward to it being a night game. The Steelers are probably done with night games (unless a Week 17 vs the Bengals) after this Thursday because their Sunday-Night thriller against the Raiders will most likely get flexed down.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    This is pretty bad but it's still better aesthetically than those god-awful grey jerseys from last year.

    ...why though? Do you want a more offensive game? If that's what your going for then your point makes sense. Personally I'd rather have the defender and the receiver with an equal footing (or as equal as they're going to have, as the receiver usually has penalty-bias going their way) and let the best player win the battle for the ball. But if you prefer shootouts, then getting rid of OPI is a way to do it. You'd definitely have teams eclipse 60 points more often.

    If You Ruled The World of Sports

    I personally agree with a lot of things that have already been said. Regardless: NFL - Chargers back to SD - Eliminate the current "body-weight" rule. - The touchback rule is amended. If a team fumbles and the ball goes out of the end zone, the last team to touch will get the ball on the nearest 20 yard line. However, the offense will instead have a 1st and Goal, putting them at a disadvantage but not an insurmountable one. - Thursday night football is only on the opening week and the 3 games on Thanksgiving. Weeks 15 and 16 will continue to have two Saturday games (a 4:25 and 8:20). - Opening weekend Monday Night double-header is abolished and instead is a standard 8:20. Teams only play one Monday Night a year, and the two teams that don't have either a Sunday Night, Thanksgiving Night, or Saturday Night game. NHL - Arizona moves to Quebec City, Carolina back to Hartford, Florida to Kansas City. Expansion team in Seattle. Move KC to the west. - Get rid of OTLs and shootouts. Instead, play 3-on-3 with a clock running up until a team scores. MLB - Eliminate interleague play. - Move Tampa Bay to Montreal. - AL expands to Charlotte, NL to Portland. - 4 divisions of 8 with an 132 game schedule (12 games per team in division, 6 games out). - 2 teams from each division make it. First series is a best-of-3 in the division, with all 3 games taking place at the home team's stadium. The rest are best-of-7s. NBA - Get rid of divisions. Add a team in Seattle and Las Vegas, moving Minnesota east. - Each team plays 78 games (15 conference teams 3 times, with the extra home game rotating each year, and 2 against 16 other conference). Each team plays an extra game against a conference team that rotates each year. - Top 8 teams still make the playoffs. First round is a best-of-5. MLS - I don't know the exact details, but find a way to create pro/rel with the USL. Teams such as "Atlanta United II" and "Toronto FC II" terminate all rights with their parent clubs. They are either renamed and kept in their city or renamed and relocated. - MLS will be 24 teams, no playoffs, 3 teams relegated. USL will also have 24 teams. Tiers will be added as more teams join the pyramid. - The draft is eliminated. NCAA - Football expands the playoffs to 8 teams: Power 5 conference winners, 2 wild cards (which can be any FBS team), and a guaranteed independent/Group of 5. Teams are still seeded based on rank, meaning the Group of 5 will probably have to play the #1 overall team. Might have missed a few a few other people have said, but these are the main ones.

    1) In theory this is a good idea. The problem you can have teams that are clearly better than the division winner counterparts, not to mention only 16 games are played. I honestly like the current playoff system and wouldn't change it (baseball, however, I agree should be division winners only, maybe with one wild card). 2) Disagree here. Offensive pass interference is rarely called and prevents the complete mauling of defenders in the secondary. If you get rid of offensive pass interference, you'd have to get rid of defensive PI as well. While I don't agree that there only be 4 alternates in all of MLB, I agree there should definitely be cutback. Get rid of holiday uniforms (4th of July, Fathers/Mothers day) and allow each teach to have an alternate and/or a throwback.
