  1. The Columbus Crew have sent out an email inviting people to attend a party on October 8, at which they will unveil a new logo. Proof below. And here's a link to the MLS subreddit thread from earlier today in which the original email recipient made the news public. Start your speculation now!
  2. What makes a bad sports contract bad?

    There are two factors that make a bad contract bad, and they're both the results of collective bargaining: salary caps and roster limits. Each one creates scarcity: you can't have too many guys on the roster, and you can't pay the team too much money as a unit. A contract becomes "bad" when the value or time promised to the player precludes a team from bringing in better replacement talent. A contra asset, if you will.

  6. If you're getting married on May 3, the time on the clock should be 5:03! The perspective on the clock feels funky to me, though. Not quite right. Also, congrats!
  7. New York Jets Concept

    With it pointing straight up, all I can think is "rocket ship" instead of "jet fighter." I echo the previous sentiment about trying it turned. It's well rendered, though!
  8. Detroit in MLS?

    I'd say St. Louis and Tampa bay are 1&2 on mls explanation lists 1- What's an explanation list? 2- lolwut? Based on any actual information?
  9. New England Revolution Concept

    I think this is a great start. The soccer ball is very well rendered, I like that a lot. But, I think it gets really busy around the ball. I don't think it needs 13 stripes AND 13 stars.
  10. ESPN's Mike and Mike Branding

    That was so witty! I find Mike & Mike to be the least offensive sports talk show on during my morning commute, so they get my listen. They don't rely on being intentionally controversial or just plain loud. The "Golic is fat and stupid" meme is really played up more during their commercials than any other time- Golic often provides interesting and relevant commentary from the athletes' perspective. They air nationally, so I get to hear sports talk about teams that aren't just in my market. And, here's the big one: They do not take callers. Sports talk show callers are generally the least interesting people in the world. To me, that's actually a decent radio show. I spent a summer living in Las Vegas and ESPN Radio airs Colin Cowherd during the morning drive time there. It was the worst. All that said, my commute now is about 15 minutes. When I was driving 45+ minutes each way, I switched to podcasts and audiobooks. There is NO sports radio show that is bearable for that amount of time. As for the logo, I'm not sure I'd ever even seen the old one before. I catch these guys on the radio, not TV. I'm surprised at how much the new one varies from the standard ESPN color scheme. Interesting.
  11. Michigan Outback Bowl Uniform

    Bad news. Only one photo was taken at that game, and it was of a Michigan helmet, not a jersey.
  12. It refers to the practice of cutting the buds of flowers off of certain plants before they have a chance to bloom. This is done to encourage the growth of fruits or leaves instead, which are of more value as food sources.
  13. Canisius College rebrand

    "Go forth and set the world on fire." is a quote from St. Ignatius Loyola. Most people who see that, especially high school students, will think it's a reference to a song by Fun. That's not a good thing. "Turn off the computer." posted above a computer lab. What? Strike two. I can guess, pretty confidently, that the inside of that mailer says "Go Exploring!" Better than "Go to Canisius!" at least. It's a weird advertising campaign for a small, private, Roman Catholic college. It's a weird campaign for any college, really.
  14. I'm with you on Wigan being top of the class, and I don't think it's even close. I might move Hammers ahead of Chelsea, something about their crest that I really like, but I think those are also my top three. Leicester's also got a great look, and I see they were the only Non-PL team to crack your Top 7. Putting these crests all together does highlight just how tragic and jumbled some many nearly all of them are, though.
  15. Stoked about the deal as a Rangers fan. The purchase price turned out to be a lot lower than it was at the trade deadline, and I think they're getting a steal here.
