  1. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were 12

    I wonder if the Eagles told the NFL that they're going to lose so they don't risk winning a title with Foles rather than Wentz. That would certainly explain it, and if sports talk radio is any indication, there is a non-insignificant number of fans that hope they don't win it with Foles.
  2. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were 12

    With the Eagles trailing by 5 with 10 seconds left on the clock, Jay Ajayi busts one up the middle and appears headed for the end zone, when all of a sudden Roger Goodell comes out on the field and signals for the referee to blow the whistle and rule that he was out of bounds, despite being in between the hashes, thus ending the game and securing the championship for the Vikings. After being punched in the face and spat on by owner Jeffrey Lurie, Goodell proclaims "Roger Goodell didn't screw Jeffrey - Jeffrey screwed Jeffrey." The Vikings deny the conspiracy for a decade, before owner (insert Vikings' owner's name here) admits it to Lurie while on his death bed. Oh - the Patriots ended up demolishing the Vikings two weeks later, but that's not germane to the story.

  4. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Green Whalers >>>>>>>> Navy Whalers. By a LOT. The logo should never have been encased in that silver box. It works best when the negative space flows into the rest of the jersey. > > Also, Kevin Dineen > you.
  5. Could teams in the same city share one identity?

    FC Barcelona has hockey and basketball (at least) in addition to soccer.

  7. Diet Coke rebrand

    The red disk thing was really smart, as it kept the script almost always with a red background while still making it very easy to find the variety you're looking for, and establish "black" as the zero brand, "silver" as the light/diet brand, and whatever the hell "life" is. The thing is, there's varieites of each - like "cherry zero" for example. It's hard to maintain brand continuity with varieties of varieties. There's no great way to maintain the red disk but also have a cherry flavored zero. One way they could do it is to say that the disc means the flavor - red=cola, pinkish=cherry, gold=ginger, whatever else, and then the surrounding color indicates the sweetener. You'd lose the script always appearing on red, but it would be a simple way of making their varieties independent yet consistent. .
  8. Alignment history question

    What makes it even tougher is that when we say "philly" and "new york", when it comes to Ocean county and a few other spots, we're really talking "jersey philly" and "jersey new york", as opposed to true philly or new york residents. Like I said, a significant portion of my "evidence" is based on what caps I see people wearing and what prizes are given out at the boardwalk amusement parks. USA Today officially considers Pittsburgh "midwest", at least in the article about Amazon2 that came out yesterday.
  9. Should NFL teams be allowed wear their alternate for the Super Bowl?

    I don't know, I looked around the bar last week and my best guess was that the average age was 35, which extrapolated out is still 35, and I asked a guy there how old he was and he was almost 35 so I don't know where the NFL is getting their numbers from or who they're paying millions to do it but my research says it's 35. There were a few seniors there but they weren't paying too much attention so I didn't factor them in. Maybe the NFL did and that's why their numbers are skewed.

    If they let Embiid be one of the drafters, that would be must see TV. Dude might be the most fun player in all of pro sports.
  11. Diet Coke rebrand

    I never tried "Life", but I did try Coke Ginger in Taiwan, and found it surprisingly enjoyable. It's pretty much what it sounds like - ginger flavored cola, rather than ginger ale. I've found that in Asia, "zero" has almost completely replaced "light", while in europe (though I haven't been there since '15) light was still dominating.
  12. The Guardian rebrands

    I don't like how thin some of the letters get in parts. To my brain, they're not fluid letters / words, more like lots of shapes that need to be pieced together to decipher what it is. That's obviously an exaggeration, as that all happens in an instant, but to me at first glance, it's not as legible.. EDIT: like the "r" for example. It's almost two separate shapes connected by a thread.
  13. Should NFL teams be allowed wear their alternate for the Super Bowl?

    Involving old timers or "living legends" might be risky, since they don't want someone walking out for a halftime ceremony then completely forget where he is and then wet himself because his brain is mush, or someone have a seizure, or try to make out with Suzy Kolber. Actually, maybe they should - watching the old players take cognitive tests during halftime of the Super Bowl would be more entertaining than any concert they could possibly put out there.
  14. Should NFL teams be allowed wear their alternate for the Super Bowl?

    Sounds like the times have changed, the way people watch games and follow sports (or any tv show for that matter) have changed, but the methods used to generate metrics around that haven't, so we're left with decisions being made based on potentially inaccurate data. They should absolutely bring back the throwback program like they did for the 75th season (I CANNOT believe that was almost 25 years ago!) but the helmet rule would need to be changed by then, and there's no reason to think that is happening. I don't get celebrating the "next 100 years", because the point of these anniversary celebrations is to look back and remember the great parts of the past n years. A TATC game would be silly, because all they could do is come out with new jerseys based on existing templates / materials, since they're not going to experiment with something during a live game, and it's difficult to predict what the game will look like in future iterations. Hell, if they're still playing the sport in 20 years, they'll probably be wearing basketball style jerseys with little tiny pads, bicycle shorts, and helmets the size of beach balls with full face shield like a motorcycle helmet... but BIGGER.
  15. Alignment history question

    From a media standpoint maybe, but I think ocean is more Phila - the phils put one of their minor league teams there. Also when Toms River won the LLWS they were covered like a local team, and I think mike trout is from there and likes the eagles , so case closed.
