    2018 MLB Off Season Thread

    Joe Mauer retired. Not surprising but Minnesota will miss a home grown hero. Sure, he lapsed in his last 6 years or so and was transitioned to 1st base. But was a legend who played at Cretin Durham and a legend in St. Paul, and now in Minneapolis. I'm a casual baseball fan, but he sure had an impact on the state and was a legend around my friend group who everyone seemingly had a Joe Mauer story (meeting him, mowing his lawn, sitting at a desk where he carved his name, in high school) which only ratifies what kind of an icon he was in the TC. (personally I always thought it was super cool that The Nook [restaurant] in St Paul had a plaque where he hit a HR in HS, on their brick outside-The Nook is across the street from his HS stadium)

    legitimately made me laugh out loud.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    I'm a fan! They look horrible as hell but I like the gimmick! Minnesota freaking loves Prince. Apropos that First Ave (lots of Prince ties to that music venue) is right across the street from the Target Center

    NFL 2018 changes

    I disagree. I think there might be 2 one color versions to be used in different cases. Things like youtube videos, social media photos: outlines are white because there it makes sense to see through the negative space. Everyone here is saying that they should use the same application on the wall art? Well then 90% of the logo would be painted drywall with 1 inch metal outlines. Different applications, different versions.

    NFL REDESIGN (Bears 11/16)

    Here are my critiques on the new panther logo: It's really pretty good! The face is one of the major problems, I see with panther redesigns and this is really close. I would lose the black mark above the nose. The right eye also needs to be slightly bigger in proportion with the left, but I would make both bigger. Last thing, while I really like the shapes of the lower neck blue mark, left ear, and face, I think the large blue shape on the left of the logo needs to revision and better flow with the rest of the neck.

    El Paso Locomotive FC (USL soccer team) crest

    Pretty sharp! Nice color scheme, I like the individual elements and they look pretty well thought out and not just gimick marketing speak. Surprised this is Brandiose, as its not super cartoony

    Unpopular Sports Opinions

    wasn't sure where to post this, but something came to mind that I thought was sort of strange. There are many teams that identify with an area instead of a city/state. Carolina Panthers and Golden State come to mind. So it's strange to me that Twin Cities isn't used by any of the Minneapolis-St Paul teams.

    Trivia Question

    what a game that would be

    Unpopular Sports Opinions

    That's a fair argument! How does that affect scores? How many games are decided by the kicking game at that point? Are you able to potentially score 9 pts on a play TD/conversion/kickoff? It's a point with punting too right? Again, I'm think it's interesting and I'd probably be fore it. Just very intrigued on how it changes the whole strategy of the game.

    I had to look this up. Seems like it would really change the game, and could be really cool. Could you share some more insight on why you are for it?

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I've never seen people complain about that! I thought most people like it. I think its hard to get the color balance right. And I personally dislike it because I have red hair, went to Iowa State, and neither of their colors look good for me haha

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Well when I first became a Mizzou fan, they were already in their Brad Smith piping nike uniforms that had old gold on the helmet and athletic gold on the jersey. Didn't really bother me. But I see where you are coming from! I think this gold looks nice but I understand the love for real gold opposed to yellow
