  1. arena football

    Money? No? Pass. Longer version - you can't fix this league, or any other version of indoor football, without sufficient owners with sufficient money to lose to make it happen. Given that people with money aren't inclined to lose money, this is dead in the water.
  2. Neutral party here - I got that vibe from it.
  3. Potentially. Of course, if merchandise is already being produced, they might HAVE to change. Sort of like the Brewers getting new threads in 2000 to coincide with the opening of Miller Park, which was delayed to to the construction tragedy.
  4. Love that there's a typo asking why Tnak was banned.
  5. I was a lifelong Cubs fan - born and raised in Green Bay. Cubs games were carried on local over the air TV in the late 60s and early 70s. Fast forward to 2010 - I'm sick of the Cubs not spending money on players and trumpeting the addition of a run-of-the-mill pitcher as a great deal. I took a year off of rooting for any one team, then became a fan of the Brewers. It's been easy, especially living in the Brewers market. Go for it!
  6. That problem in general applies to all alt unis. College football especially.
  7. Hmmm - so I have a blank Sand Knit from back in that timeframe (which I WISH I still fit in). Maybe I ought to get it numbered and then try to sell it.
  8. Just curious - and this is probably a mod question - is there any way that this thread could have weekly 'stickies' within it, such that there would be a way to go from week to week reviewing which uniforms were worn, as opposed to needing to scroll the entire thread? [/threadjack][love your work][try the veal]
  9. Multi-quoting to try to capture this properly. The NFL is the be-all and end-all of making a career out of football. Yes, the CFL exists and is an option in Canada. You state that there needs to be more options for making a career. I had previously stated that if you aren't in a camp, you need to move on, as you WON'T be making a career in football. Now, you WANT more options for guys to make a career. As @dfwabel stated, there is no market for want you WANT. Since there is no market, what "needs to be" and what you want are not the same. Another way - you'd like for guys to be able to make a living in football other than the NFL. You've played semi-pro. Have you ever played semi-pro in front of 5000 fans? That's a helluva gate that I saw twice in 5 years with a semipro team who traces its roots back to 1953. They don't pay their players. Teams that they play against may or may not exist from year to year. Why? Money, or the lack thereof. If there is insufficient money to keep a team or league afloat from year to year (heck, even from week to week), what makes you think players could make a living off of it? And no, TV isn't the answer. People don't show up to watch it - no one will pay to broadcast it.
  10. Need to be and 'are' are two entirely different things.
  11. But it's the Reds' 'C' [runs and hides]
  12. Yep - sorry - that was in reference to oldschoolvikings
  13. Yeah, I know what I would have gotten. The reason I went there is that it sounded so definitive. There are few people I would ask for such a list, and I HATE top-5/bottom-5 threads, but seeing a number like 4 and not 5 or 10 or 3, it seemed like there might have been specific helmets in mind. Carry on :-)
  14. Well, until this past season, they have had bigger things to worry about :-)
  15. If a guy is undrafted and not in camp, he needs to go on with his life, not play in a fly-by-night league. This coming from a guy who is a fan of semi-pro football.
  16. It hasn't been needed since the HDTV has become the norm. It was added (as I figure you know) mid-season back in 1970 in response to color TV becoming the norm.
  17. Name them. I'm not arguing with you -- that just sounded like a definitive number.
  18. oh - good point. Per wiki - 2002.
  19. I always assumed they were trying to follow the ridge on one of the newly released helmet shells -- probably the Riddell Revolution
  20. See - that's what I think when I see ANY of these draft photos. It's a staged photo, not necessarily an indication of what the team will be wearing in the regular season. Most likely yes, but youneverknow.
  21. A - probably not (and that's being incredibly generous) B - you say that as if this were a viable either/or option. If a player thinks he's ready, he'll leave for the NFL. If not, he'll stay in college, not go to a developmental league that will have less eyes on it than the official developmental league of the NFL (i.e., NCAA D-I).
  22. But if the bull is inside the mask, why do you see the face of the bull? And if it isn't, why the heck does it have a hockey mask behind it? It makes no sense.
  23. So, you didn't answer my request for data. I'll assume it doesn't exist. Put another way - I can't imagine that the Packers would ever change their jersey style to a newer template. I've never heard a single fan in all my years of attending games at Lambeau Field ask for them to change. [that's at least a real comment on the situation at hand].
  24. Really? Can I see some data to back up that claim? Or the one that Matthews is steering the jersey template? This fan would prefer that Ripon still make our jerseys, because they do it well. It isn't a mass-produced 'have it our way not your way' scenario.
  25. You spelled that wrong. Everyone knows it's MOICHandising :-)
