  1. They finally did it. Congratulations Cincinnati. Looks like they're probably the favorites next year.
  2. I'm thinking the Rebels get a remake just in time for when their stadium's lease runs out. Maybe something closer to James Dean than Johnny Reb. Or hell, maybe Admiral Akbar liked they tried to do at Ole Miss a few years back.
  3. I'm thinking Atlanta wins and as a result, New Orleans will burn like the LA Riots but 6 years early. Either way, this sounds like the most controversial Victory Bowl to date and we haven't even seen kickoff yet.
  4. Rebels versus Guardians and it'll be in New Orleans. At the time, the city was about half black and half white. Bringing in a team rife with Confederate imagery is going to be interesting in the Chinese sense.
  5. Noticed that too, particularly the latter. From what I know about that area where the Kanter Dome is, it was blighted by the 90's at the latest and with the lease running out in 2001, that could become an issue threatening the team's existence in Kansas City if the Crows don't get a winning tradition going. If there is a new stadium in Kansas City, the downtown area was still a sea of parking lots and abandoned buildings until about 2005 so it would make sense to build the new stadium where the Power and Light district is today. EDIT: Scratch that, awful idea. If the Crows have even a fraction of the tailgating tradition the Chiefs have, the West Bottoms or the area where the Truman Sports Complex is now would be a much better site for a new stadium. A lot of available area so that you can not only build the stadium, you can also have a large parking lot too. Reason: No mass transit in Kansas City.
  6. It seems like usually whatever the magazine says is usually the reverse of what happens until this year so far. Or, I could be wrong on both ends and we get a rematch of last year's Victory Bowl. Either way it's great!
  7. All the home teams won this round! That's new! Loving that Cleveland-Colorado is becoming an 80's rivalry like real life. Rebs bust the Ghosts Guardians finally reach their potential and beat the Whales soundly.
  8. The camo idea for the Generals might be a good idea to look into for a third jersey once we hit the early-mid 2000's.
  9. Rebels finally git er done against the Hurricanes Guardians are no longer known as the Gaggers of Chokecinatti, Sink the Captains Destroyers beat the Whales in an upset Cents get revenge against the Ghosts
  10. Something tells me the Generals are going to have a really out there red, white and blue color design. Make it so outrageously patriotic that Uncle Sam would think it's pushing it. I'm thinking the Bighorns completely change their color scheme too. Probably they'll go BFBS.
  11. Kansas City regressed a bit. What happened there? Noticed that LA just can't get anything going. Same with Philadelphia. What is holding back those two franchises?
  12. I dunno, maybe this is what the Nationale needed to get a new arena deal. Either this or it's like how the North Stars left Minnesota a couple years after they went to the Stanley Cup Finals.
  13. Houston Appollos or Roughnecks (oil worker).
  14. I'm hoping the Twisters make it to the Western Conference Finals. I know that's the capability this team has and I hope I'm not disappointed. The Beavers are now gone. Are there any other markets that are vulnerable right now? I know you mentioned Quebec, but who else could leave in the next few years?
  15. I'm not surprised that the Beavers are almost a lock to move considering the old building and the fact that they probably haven't made the playoffs since the Dallas Metros existed (correct me if I'm wrong). But, what peaks my interest is the Dave Mack signing. He's honestly my favorite player in the story so far and he's signed with my favorite team but I do have to question the wisdom of giving him such a big contract. He's gotta be in his early-mid 30's, right? I know the Twisters are in win now mode, but this seems like it will backfire badly if there isn't at least one Lewis Cup to show for it.
  16. I see elements of the 1990-1997 Jets uniforms and the Eagles uniforms from 1974-1995 with a heavier lean to the Eagles. The Jets elements are the black outline on the numbers and the dynamic logo and the Eagles elements being the rest of the color scheme. Either way, I could see black becoming more dominant in the color scheme in a decade. EDIT: Forgot that this site is primarily a uniform history site.
  17. I'd say if Phoenix didn't have a team, the Arizona Legion would be an awesome name. Just saying.
  18. Done. Yeah, It's real disturbing and because I've been desensitized to a lot of it, I forget that a lot of people haven't. Sorry about that.
  19. Didn't think much of it at first, but you're right. It looks like a sock (at best) or California has Peyronie's Disease (at worst). I can only imagine that said logo is going to be the butt of many jokes on the primordial Internet. EDIT: Do not Google Peyronie's Disease unless you're alone and/or have a strong stomach. It's a medical condition, but still.
  20. >Sees the new Edmonton uniforms My eyes..... True story, actually got a minor migraine when I saw those. You really captured that over-the-top look. I'm thinking Milwaukee's rotated logo might be a test run for the new primary but that's just me.
  21. I can see where you got the inspiration for this uniform. I can only imagine that any alternate they'd have would be even more over the top.
  22. First time posting here, but this series is really getting me excited. Go Beermen! Complete the comeback!
  23. He kind of sounds like TO in the body of Lawrence Taylor.
  24. For all we know, the Bulldogs did that to troll the Redshirts. Thats my opinion anyway.
