  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. Maybe they just feed Cena to Lesnar again and have him take another massive beatdown. That would be magical.
  3. WWE SummerSlam 2014

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but did they maybe tease a Rollins face turn there? His reaction post-stomp wasn't exactly "wooo I killed him!" but more like "uhhhhh did I really just kill him why does Kane look so happy?" He basically just murdered his main antagonist, and he's not going to want to challenge BOSS FIGHT LESNAR anytime soon, so he might be experiencing some remorse over turning on his friends and aligning with the Authority. He could spend a while trying to work his way out of whatever deal he got himself into, only to keep having the Authority keep roping him back in and saying he "owes them" for helping him get the MITB contract. They constantly make him do things he's not comfortable with, taking it too far until ultimately he snaps on them. Thoughts?
  4. 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.

  8. IFA looking for a replacement owner

    A reminder that the IFA is still collecting applications to replace one of our members. The team has a solid core and currently sits fourth in our table.
  9. 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!
  10. 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!
  11. MSG may be forced out of NYC

    You're ignoring the relatively high price inelasticity of commuter rail service demand. Right now I buy one train ticket per month. If my monthly LIRR train ticket goes from $276 to $300, that'd represent a nearly 9% increase in price. You know how many train tickets I will buy then? Still one. Oh, and ridership on LIRR rose for 13 straight months until Sandy hit, so it's not like less people are using the service than before. It's only going up, which is providing the impetus for the renovation of Penn.
  12. Detroit in MLS?

    1- What's an explanation list? 2- lolwut? Based on any actual information?
  13. MSG may be forced out of NYC

    Amtrak is moving its terminal over there in what will be called Moynihan Station. The spot is not large enough to house new stations for all three main rail services, though. (Amtrak, Long Island Railroad, New Jersey Transit)
  14. MSG may be forced out of NYC

    600,000 people commute through Penn Station every day, and I promise you it's a miserable experience for every one of them. The train station is in desperate need of a massive overhaul. It's cramped and crowded and only going to get worse if Metro North trains start going there, too. Your title is, I think, far-fetched. The Dolans still have plenty of money and influence, even if the city council has finally recognized that Penn needs to be able to expand upwards. If they leave Manhattan, MSG loses out on pretty much all appeal that it has. MSG has existed in four different locations already, and the Dolans should have no issue finding real estate to use in midtown. It might not be quite as convenient as sitting directly on top of a major rail and subway station, but it'll happen. MSG isn't going anywhere but down the street. It's easy as sports fans to think that the world revolves around sports, and it's easy to forget that millions and millions of people couldn't care less about what happens at MSG. As a Rangers fan, I would be bummed to see the arena go. But as a New Yorker, I have no issue with the city council taking a stand on this issue and make a decision that promises to improve Penn Station and bring a lot more benefit to a lot more people than MSG does. Is it kind of a bummer to see these big renovations at MSG and know that they're only going to be used for ten years? A bit, yeah. But then I think about how the Dolans killed the West Side Stadium just so they wouldn't have competition, and I don't feel as bad for them. The Knicks and Rangers will get a shiny new arena out of the whole thing, we'll say goodbye to one of the most iconic venues in sports, but the city will be better for it.
  15. New England Road Trip - things to do?

    While in Boston, find a bar that serves Sam Adams Boston Brick Red. It's my favorite of the Sam beers, is only available IN Boston, only on tap, and only in certain bars. If you like beer and want something you literally can't get anywhere else, do that. The Bull and Finch Pub, which is right next to the Common and is known for being the "Cheers Bar," has it.
