    And I seem to recall reading that MLB itself owns the marks for defunct clubs via the Cooperstown Collection. Either way, the Expos identity should be readily available.

    Well, I’m not sure how much of a rivalry they really had, considering that when the Braves moved at the end of Spring Training they only had two dozen season ticket holders for the upcoming 1953 season. Still, if there are to be interleague rivalry games, this one is about the best either team could ask for.

    Nope. No stadium plan, no ownership group. Both of which he’ll have to come up with.
  4. MLB Changes 2017

    If it’s in the hands of MLB, as opposed to an unrelated party, then I’d say it’s available.
  5. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I dunno. Kroenke already had Goodell mess up his relocation, forcing him to delay it a year. And then he was forced to take on a business partner he neither needed nor wanted. I can see why he thinks a uniform isn't worth another fight, especially when he'll be able to make a big splash with the new ones in a couple years.

    There are also reports that local Columbus businesspersons approached Precourt with an offer to buy the club but were rebuffed.

    Well, there might be. My understanding is that the Crew’s stadium was built on the cheap. Very cheap. It was the first soccer-specific stadium, built bare-bones as an experiment to see how SSS would work. It’s not like Turner Field. So maybe it should be replaced. But that doesn’t mean the city should pay a single dime for that replacement.
  8. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    Yep, those are sweet. The Rams have a long tradition of strong graphics. These 1961 game programs have some of the best design the sport has ever seen. And, of course, my personal favorite: Good to see the Rams are reclaiming their tradition of strong graphics game.

    And even worse, getting the sub-concussive impacts that are the real danger.
  10. MLB Changes 2017

    Yes. But that will never be the trade off.

    The blue squatchee or the blue stars might be a decent quirk. Together, it feels over-designed and forced. I admit that their uniforms are pretty bad. But that’s one of the things that makes them so. Like the similarly over-designed numbers and cap logo, trying too hard to be matchy-matchy with the wordmark.
  12. I miss "Authentic jerseys"

    I’m not sure that NFL Authentics were ever authentic. The ones I saw in stores in Wisconsin in the 90s weren’t the same as those tailored by Ripon. True Authentics were a special item - in 2001, the Packers wore a 1939 throwback jersey, and the club had Ripon make a bunch of extras so the pro shop could sell them. But when they wore a 1963 throwback in 2003, they only sold Adidas’s replicas at retail, not Authentics.
  13. Football and CTE

    He’s not wrong. In this country, the USSF has already started overhauling the sport at the youth level. Let’s hope the FA is more like them and less like the NFL.

    Little touches of color are great, until you start picking them up in other uniform pieces. Its like the Dodgers’ red front number. On its own it’s a quirky and wonderful little detail that sets them apart. But if the team added a red squatchee or red stripes on the socks it would suddenly become profoundly stupid.

    His point is that there are no longer independent leagues, but now two conferences in all but name. They no longer have the administration or autonomy they used to have.
