    MLB officially partners with Nike

    Nike is intentionally designing some uniforms to highlight and feature their logo - Seattle is the best example - considering how it's integrated perfectly into a highlighted container, and I'd argue that Tennessee and Jacksonville also fall into this category since the swoosh (which at least seems to be larger than RBK's logo) is the only thing featured on their sleeves, and is colored in a way that makes it look like a team mark. You want a sports/lifestyle company ad in a "not so obvious spot", then put it above the NOB where the league logos currently reside.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    There are just some teams that are completely irrelevant, and even a Super Bowl appearance won't change that. The AZ Cardinals are one of them. Just about any other team could have played the Steelers and it would have been a very highly rated game. Had the Super Bowl LII Champion Philadelphia Eagles not had a bitch-ass loser waste-of-oxygen with nothing but corny turds between his ears playing quarterback, the Super Bowl could have been one of the highest of all the times. The list of irrelevant teams isn't really that high. I'll give it a shot: Dolphins (sad that it's come to this, but nobody cares) Bills (but people would be interested in rooting for them to finally get one after losing 4 straight) Chargers (now) Bengals Jaguars maybe Titans maybe Texans (let's be honest - if they're in the SB and don't have any flashy superstars, would the average person even care?)

    NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    If the league technically considers it a different market, and if they're being sued by Oakland, would the league influence them to change their name (or just be The Raiders)?

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    I think for the most part, the lower skill kind of balances out - mediocre offensive players might look decent because they're going against mediocre defensive players, and vice versa. The big exceptions are the QBs - there's no hiding that barring some fluke Kurt Warner story, the QBs won't be nailing down field passes with any kind of precision, and will probably be missing open guys and making wrong reads. Same with the receivers - it's doubtful you'll see too many ridiculous catches, because most of the guys that can do that are already in the NFL. I do wonder if this was 2000, would Tom Brady - a 6th round pick with (at the time) no real chance of playing - have joined one of these leagues so that he'd play and build a resume, rather than ride the pine for the duration of his rookie deal (which is what probably would have happened if not for Bledsoe's injury)?

    Then they'll just make a star out of someone else. Players tend to look better when Tom Brady is throwing to them, as opposed to... oh, IDK... Chase Daniel. Funny how that works.

    2019 MLB Changes

    The gray-crowned caps looked awful on the field. There's a reason they were abandoned quickly by each team. Only the Royals came close to pulling it off. The Pirates were egregiously terrible because at the time their uniforms had pinstripes (one of the most mismatched and idiotic uniform sets ever) so the plain gray cap clashed with the pinstriped gray uni.

    Message Board Influence

    Well, I like the gold-pantsed St Louis Rams, so I guess I'm weird. The board never influences my opinion in the way you mentioned, HOWEVER often times people can point out that some element of a logo that I originally didn't understand is actually a historical tie-in to something in that team's or city's history, and that may make me appreciate it more, but no amount of "needs stripes" is going to change my mind if I don't think a uniform "needs stripes".

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    I get he’s a young kid, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen more of a “deer in headlights” look on a player than Goff last night. I don’t know him so maybe that’s just his look, but he seemed scared to death- like the game was moving at 500 MPH. I’d expect a guy to rebound, but man did he seem like a little kid playing against men. That being said, he threw a great pass right before that final INT, and his receiver (cook?) simply didn’t haul it in. At first it looked like great D, but in reply, he should have caught it for a TD.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Im not ignoring that - it’s just not relevant. The cap theoretically levels the field, when back them, some teams could do things that were well out of reach of the others. Look at baseball now - is winning repeatedly with a $200M payroll that impressive? Everyone else doesn’t have a cap, but they also don’t have the means. As as far as defenses being better, yeah - “defense wins championships” was true at one point, so teams built that way (well, the good ones anyway). Now you build to take advantage of the current state, and nobody has done it better - and within the confines of a cap to boot.

    Los Angeles Rams Confirm Throwback Uniforms For Super Bowl

    Have they said what they’re doing next year yet as far as if the navy jerseys and current whites are still in the rotation?

    I’d argue that doing it in the salary cap era is far more impressive - at least from a management standpoint. Also

    Aren’t Oakland and SF in the same market anyway? Would the territory rights really be any different? its just funny that a team called “oakland” will be playing in SF, while a team called “SF” will be playing in Santa’s clara.

    I go Friday mornings every couple of months. Gotta pay, but reasonable crowds.

    LOL. This is too easy. You don't even see what you did.
