  1. Been receiving these pop ups every few clicks. Not sure if it matters but I’m in France at the moment. Every two or three clicks one of these fills the screen. You can see the double whammy of the bottom pop up here too (though the actual ad in it has yet to load).

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 2

    Since they wear black pants so much, I don’t think I ever noticed how bad the saints “gold” (faded khaki) pants are. If I was them I’d wear black too if that was my other option. They really need to other be metallic or me mothballed.

    Remind me why they deserve a choice? Conceptually it's the same as wearing a navy suit to work. I guess a CEO could put his name really big on the back of his suit, but it's more dignified to maintain a professional appearance. In sports, it's certainly not unprofessional to sport a NOB, but other than "because we're used to it", it's completely unnecessary and when worn, is for identification purposes only. If the league's stated policy is to have fun, and that players can be "identified" by names other than their own (He Hate Me for example), then cool - I kinda wish all leagues were like that - but they're not, and they don't need to be.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 2

    The Jags will certainly not show up on any "worst" list, but I can't see them making the "best" list unless it's the perfect matchup. They're close, yet so far.

    I'd'a made Indianapolis/Washington higher - maybe #2. I agree about the yellow pants, but that's still a good looking game. I'd rate it higher than GB/MIN and SF/DET because of the "clash of eras". Both of those games were great "color" matchups, but I like games better when both teams look like they're from the same era. Neither MIN nor DET look "cutting edge" or "futuristic", but they're definitely more contemporary than their opponents. I'd still rank the games high, but not above matchups where the teams look like their from around the same era. Like any "rule", there's exceptions, so there may be weeks where I really like a SF/SEA matchup.

    Buffalo Wild Wings new look

    I'd pay $20 to hear what the client asked the designer to do. It's very likely all they wanted done.

    Unused Logos and Uniforms

    I don't know that I'd say "number should be brighter" is a rule. I think it works fine in the Marlins case, where they want to have a number, but still have most of the attention on the bright-stylized wordmark. Having a basic black number does the job just fine. Also... 1. The White Sox are one of those teams that does'nt need any white trim on their road uniforms. It's not that it's bad, it's just unnecessary. 2. The Phillies are in the same boat as them as far as having '80s-ish styled road uniform striping:

    The news is the last pure form of non-fiction television we have left.

    I've said for a while that while it's not scripted, it's not 100% "pure", and that it needs to be more like WWE, so I'm cool with having "QB KILLAH" or "DA SODOMIZER" as a NOB, but I draw the line at "Sr."

    Humor me - what would you put on the back of his jersey?

    That's a lot to put on the back of a jersey. "Lynch" and a number is good enough.

    If not Lynch, what do they see?

    this is the hill I want to die on. It's godsdamned sports. Drop the formalities. You're just Smith. You're not Dr. Smith. YOu're not Smith ESQ. You're not Smith VIII. You're Smith QB. Or Smith RB. Sports uniforms are to identify the team, and then the player on said team. That ends when a number and "Smith" is placed on a red shirt. Come at me.

    Do they use the "Sr." in any other context? Is "Sr." really used anywhere? It's usually the OG, and the Jr., not the Sr. and Jr. (unless playing together like the Griffeys). Thos suffixes are to distinguish yourself from other people with the same name, and IMO shouldn't be necessary unless there's any chance of confusion. THis isn't the king's court, where we have King Robert of house Griffin, third of his name. I can sorta understand Jr., but Sr. doesn't ever need a special callout. Their kids names are irrelevant to what's going on the field. There's plenty of time for them to talk about their kids. Letting me know that you're a daddy by putting Sr. on your jersey is just silly.
