  1. Sticking to my guns on 3 of the 4 series based on my original bracket, then the 4th I was 0-for so I can get creative Bruins in 7 Caps in 6 Jets in 6 Knights in 6 Bruins in 6 Jets in 5 Bruins in 6
  2. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    It's okay. If it had visible outlines (so teal on the white on the homes, teal on the black on the roads) they'd be a bit better. Nothing wrong with going clean, just leaves a bit to be desired given their color palette
  3. Made the orange brighter and more of a pop while maintaining that really nice shade of aqua they had going with the initial redesign? Love it. I think I said this before that for some reason I really liked that aqua that they have, so much to the point that if they went to throwbacks I would rather them keep that shade rather than revert to it.
  4. Las Vegas 51s to Get New Name, New Everything in 2019

    SHAMELESS PLUG of something I whipped up in 5 minutes
  5. NFL 2018 changes

    Last year's pocket helmets switched over to the Speeds as well
  6. Color Rush Thursday is dead

    Although for the most part getting rid of Color Rush is fine, that does mean the Jets lose their best current jersey if they don't promote it to alternate status. Womp womp
  7. You can't have a Rite of Spring thread without some late 00's alt rock that can be used to describe the nature of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, so Anyway Preds in 4 Jets in 5 Kings in 6 Ducks in 7 Devils in 7 Bruins in 6 Caps in 5 Pens in 6 Jets in 7 Ducks in 6 Bruins in 5 Caps in 6 Jets in 5 Bruins in 6 Bruins in 6
  8. College Football uniforms- 2018

    The Illinois new uniforms are exactly like Syracuse's minus the 44 degree angle lines on the numbers and the shoulder caps. Now usually Illinois and Syracuse redo their uniforms the same time, so maybe stay tuned, but otherwise man that's way too similar
  9. HFBoards Bad Comment Aggregator Thread

    The John Tavares thread on the Islanders' board is a good one if you want to punch yourself in the face
  10. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    I like ESPN's new baseball scorebug but it needs to have the bases where a runner isn't on it as white or something. Got confusing thinking the bases were loaded the first time I turned it on
  11. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Reading this week's Down Goes Brown grab bag and JESUS CHRIST IT'S LIKE THEY WANT THE LOZO TERRIBLE THINKPIECES TO BE EVERYWHERE The other thing that irks me with Lozo is that you more or less can't find a hockey podcast outside The Bobcast, 31 Thoughts, or Steve Dangle that doesn't have him co-hosting somehow. "Oh cool, Down Goes Brown's finally got a podca... OH COME ON WHY'S LOZO IN THIS ONE TOO"
  12. 2018 NFL Offseason

    ESPN's still got the rights. Now it's gonna be on 3 networks with Fox simulcasting the NFL Network feed and my god you thought the NFL couldn't go more overkill, didn't you?
  13. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    WEEEEELLLLLLLPPPPPPPPP given it's qualifying runs this practice, this better just be the qualifying scorebug because otherwise this is them repeating their initial 2014 mistake all over again
  14. Funniest Sports Logos

  15. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    I could see NBC either waiting til after the Olympics for the full rollout or, as you guys have been saying, waiting for the Stanley Cup Playoffs for hockey and going from there on a sport by sport basis like Fox tends to do Speaking of Fox, curious to see what they're going to do for the NASCAR scorebug with the new package
  16. Funniest Sports Logos

    Besides all the 2000's ABA logos, I nominate
  17. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    so first little bit that they showed before the NFL Films special doesn't seem to overloaded on italics and it looks really sharp. We'll see more of it as the day progresses to make a bigger judgment, but so far so good

  19. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    That's way better than anyone else has gone in recent redesigns and keeps the primary/secondary color thing NBC had going that I loved. I approve
  20. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    He lives in Bakersfield, CA, so that might open up some more vis-a-vis the cost of living
  21. College lacrosse season is somehow just 11 days away (#SPRINGSPORT) and with LaxCon this weekend some new gear has been popping up. Teams have been pretty consistent on uniform design the past couple of years in contrast to earlier in the decade when things were getting a bit out of control, but there's still a few big changes up coming. I tend to care more on the jersey side than the helmet side, so I'll dive into two big ones first. UNC's got new jerseys from Nike and... well, that sublimination effect on the back isn't subliminal in the least Johns Hopkins finally becomes the last Maryland school to switch over to Under Armour in D-1 lax and they're going a bit traditional. Interesting to see them go away from the old Maple Leaf numbers, though And it looks like 3D helmet decals are going to be a thing this year, with Penn State and Syracuse looking like they're among the ones to be using them So let's see what everyone else has up their sleeves this year. Nike's generally gone simpler in recent years, Under Armour's had some good looks up their sleeves, and New Balance went surprisingly conservative and good once they rebranded all the Warrior teams, so we're due for some big clunkers this season
  22. Alignment history question

    For the most part. As we discussed, Mercer County's the real grey area and gets both markets' stations. Southern Ocean County's up for debate I would guess, too
  23. 2017 NFL Weekly Picks Contest

    As much as I would love the hilarity of Jags-Vikings, I think the Pats will hold on against the Jags and the Vikings still have to get to a Super Bowl to shake off Playoff Vikings. Oh, and #1 seeds have tended to get to the Super Bowl to set up 1 seed vs. 1 seed matchups quite a bit in recent years Jacksonville vs. New England Minnesota vs. Philadelphia
  24. Alignment history question

    also in what will probably cause some disagreements with the last post's definition of the NYC area but whatever, while we're on the topic of how there's zero way to put all of New York State altogether, here's a map where I kind of bundle up some of the regions together in a Six Nations of New York or such 1- Blue- NYC area 2- Green- Hudson River Valley/Catskills. I feel that the two areas are more similar in common than other regions are 3- Purple- Adirondacks 4- Orange- Central NY 5- Yellow- Western NY 6- Light green- Southern Tier Now you can make the case with the Southern Tier that Schuyler and Chemung on west would fit into WNY and Tioga and Broome more with the Catskills/Hudson Valley, but it also has that Pennsylvania feel to it.
