  1. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    We don't actually know that, do we? Yesterday's Board of Governors meeting hadn't been announced as the final voting date, although a lot of people online speculated that it might be. That's the problem with Twitter - rumor becomes fact and expectations are unfairly raised. Neither do know that they didn't vote, either. We know only that they haven't announced a final decision. It's very possible that one team was approved and they're still debating the second. And it's not like they didn't have other business to cover. A good portion of the meeting was taken up with approving David Beckham's new partners in Miami. That had to get done as well. Stay strong. I know it's frustrating, but you'll get there.
  2. MLB changes 2018?

    I like almost anything with that wordmark on it, but they've got to stop with all these alternates. Reverse the colors on this, make it the primary, and call it a day.

    I don't think Beckham's bid will fail. But for the sake of argument, I don't know. I don't actually think MLS is terribly high on the Miami market; they certainly haven't done much to help Beckham. And Silva would need a stadium deal, which doesn't seem any more possible for him than for Beckham.

    Yeah. The only thing I can see is if FCC feels it will have its MLS coaching staff and players ready to go more quickly, and Sac decides to wait and keep building. Not out of the realm of possibility, but I agree it's unlikely.
  5. 2018 MLS Kits

    Not sure I can agree with you there. We'll see what the final "peach" kit looks like, but I appreciate them breaking with a different color. Like NYCFC has done - the home kits are primarily clean and classic, so they can go a little crazy with the change kits. That's a solid plan.

    I think it is. Good diverse palette, not a huge over-reliance on either navy or black. I think there's only one true clunker in the league, that 1990s crayola badge right in the middle. And there's one truly awful name, if not identity, in Salt Lake. But that's pretty damn good. And considering these are the two frontrunners to join, it might only get better.
  7. Well, damn. I don't think I'll ever be able to un-see that.

    That's a huge improvement - one of the problems with the Union's set is the dark, muddy color scheme. A lighter gold should do wonders.

    Likelihood? No. A possibility, but I don't think it's a very great possibility. I think it's more likely that either Sacramento or Cincinnati get fast-tracked to start sooner. I'm not sure that three bids are actually ready. True, while softer bids are bolstered the best bids might start to fall apart. But I still put that on the owners; they need to be constantly working on their bids to respond to conditions on the ground, just as they eventually will with their clubs.
  10. NFL 2017 changes?

    I love that football-shaped logo. Really nice. I’ve long thought that the helmet logo could be simplified somewhat, but that Dolphins look is just about perfect.
  11. NFL 2017 changes?

    They don't even need the numbers at all. They're just there to identify the helmets for the players. If the players really need that on the outside, it can be so small as to be barely noticeable at any distance.

    No - I fully expect the two clubs left out next week to use the extra year to bolster their proposals. Especially Detroit - Ford Field was a bit of a desperation move for them, and they will have an extra year to come up with a SSS proposal.
  13. That's a great wordmark. The name is perfect, with three decades of history in the city. I don't love the logo, but the subtle pinstripes are a great touch. Wonder what the cap logo will be like - an isolated T from the wordmark?
  14. NHL 2018-19

    I don't know. From what I've seen on the local rinks, they sell a lot of them.
  15. MLB changes 2018?

    I have no doubt that you're right. I think the mesh flap serves the exact same purpose as those oh-so trademarkable and marketable vents on modern football helmets. How else would you know who makes it?
