  1. Rare team matchups

    The final week of the 1999 NFL regular season (played January 3, 2000) featured the lone matchup between the 'huge-shoulder' Flying Elvis Patriots and the current 'raven head' helmet Ravens (although the team changed its jersey sleeve patches the next year).
  2. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Sorry to bring this back up after almost half a year, but another idea for a Seattle NHL team name: The Seattle Waves could work.
  3. NHL 2017-18

    OK; I guess my decision is made as to what jersey to get. I'll just plunk down extra for the authentic Adidas quality. Thanks for all the information.
  4. NHL 2017-18

    ^ I think the throwbacks were only produced as replicas.
  5. NHL 2017-18

    ^ That's unfortunate.

    For those of you who live in Connecticut, here is Foxon Park's logo. A timeless classic.
  7. CFL in Halifax coming soon?

    I'm really excited. I've been clamoring for a 10th CFL team for a long time, and if Halifax gets it, that'd be great. I just love it when any sports league has an even number of teams.
  8. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Going north of the border again; that is Dan Ferrone, who was the anchor of the Toronto Argonauts offensive line during the 1980s and early 1990s; he spent one season, however, in the uniform of the Calgary Stampeders in 1989.
  9. NHL 2017-18

    This is related to an earlier post I made about the new NHL replica jerseys made by Fanatics, but this concerns the 'authentic' new NHL jerseys by Adidas themselves. I have the same two Qs: 1) Has anybody had a chance to get one? 2) What is the quality like? Just asking, in case I should try and get such a jersey in the future.
  10. NHL 2017-18

    Time to bring this back. This time, with Adidas taking hold of the NHL uniform contract, it's time to make a new post talking about the NHL uniforms this season. WESTERN CONFERENCE PACIFIC DIVISION: ANAHEIM DUCKS: No change at all. Still looks alright to me, even though the straight laces on the collar look weird in my eyes. ARIZONA COYOTES: See Anaheim above. CALGARY FLAMES: I've been lobbying for this for a while now, but they really oughta lose the black and bring back the 1980s look. EDMONTON OILERS: You know, it'll take a while for me to get used to them wearing orange at home. I'm indifferent about them going back to their 2000s decade color scheme (navy blue instead of royal blue). LOS ANGELES KINGS: Eh, still looks OK. Can't believe there's still no hem stripe on the black home jersey...... SAN JOSE SHARKS: I'm indifferent, TBH. But I like teal. VANCOUVER CANUCKS: No changes at all. I'm okay with it. VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS: To say nothing of their trademark dispute, and the lack of 'Las' in the team name locale, they really captured their look and identity well; a very solid look for them. CENTRAL DIVISION: CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS: Still the classic look we've been accustomed to all these years. COLORADO AVALANCHE: Hey, they brought back the classic look! I applaud this. DALLAS STARS: Didn't change much. Still looks good. MINNESOTA WILD: Their new looks is okay; bye-bye, roundel logo. NASHVILLE PREDATORS: Still a good look. ST. LOUIS BLUES: Didn't change much, but I am okay with what they've got. WINNIPEG JETS: Blue is a fave color of mine, and I like what they have. EASTERN CONFERENCE: ATLANTIC DIVISION: BOSTON BRUINS: Perfection. BUFFALO SABRES: Their regular jersey are OK, but that third jersey is LOUD. DETROIT RED WINGS: A timeless classic. FLORIDA PANTHERS: They look alright to me, except the stripes on the sleeves don't go all the way around. That part kinda irks me. MONTREAL CANADIENS: As timeless as you can get. OTTAWA SENATORS: Still looks nice. TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING: Looks too close to the Toronto Maple Leafs' design, but the elimination of the laces makes it a bit better. TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS: Why change a good look? METROPOLITAN DIVISION: CAROLINA HURRICANES: Looks rather plain compared to the uniform it replaced. But it is a simple, yet effective uniform. COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS: Nothing is wrong with this set. NEW JERSEY DEVILS: See above. NEW YORK ISLANDERS: Just about as perfect as you can get; but their third jerseys are another story. NEW YORK RANGERS: Solid. PHILADELPHIA FLYERS: See above, again. PITTSBURGH PENGUINS: Their new third jersey is just great! Now if they can adopt that jersey fulltime and lose the Vegas Gold, they'd be set. WASHINGTON CAPITALS: Not bad. Still pretty much hit-or-miss with the current state of the NHL uniform scene. Quite a few teams didn't change much, just merely adapted themselves to the new Adizero template.
  11. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Gizmo Williams was mentioned in the "Players in the 'Wrong' Uniforms" thread, but here he is again, with his only 'wrong' uniform for the right team: The 'modern' style Eskimos (he's more associated with the 1980s set with the 'EE' monogram on the sleeves).
  12. Whatever happened to that "middle bar"-style facemask?

    Another entry for current players, college or pro wearing the 'middle bar' facemask: That's Mike McGlinchey of Notre Dame (#68) wearing one.
  13. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Before embarking on his legendary career with the BC Lions, Geroy Simon was a Winnipeg Blue Bomber.
  14. Other Soft Drink Brand Logos

    SIDENOTE ABOUT RC COLA: From various periods during the 1960s to the early 1990s, they were a sponsor of the New York Mets.
  15. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Well, I found the 2002-11 Reebok Seattle Seahawks #12 Fan jersey for $6 that was in excellent shape. I also found a University of Colorado-Boulder hockey jersey, but I wasn't able to get it.
