  1. WWE Hell in a Cell/Tables, Ladders, and Chairs

    Yeah I loved her. Not so much the name "kharma" but her in general. She was good in tna.
  2. WWE Hell in a Cell/Tables, Ladders, and Chairs

    Nia Jax does nothing for me. She's a pretty face on an unathletic body and I'm not sure what her character is. I think you can get over as pretty, or as big, but pretty big? What's the angle? They didn't really develop the character

  4. WWE Hell in a Cell/Tables, Ladders, and Chairs

    Had the shield stayed together, or reformed prior to reigns' ascent, he would have gotten over as Champ and everything would be as Vince desired. Fans would have seen it as the Shield being pushed, not just Reigns. Then they could break up and he'd still retain being over.
  5. WWE Hell in a Cell/Tables, Ladders, and Chairs

    that's already happened. It would be interesting if they had Lesnar win both belts, apear on both shows, then have Reigns take both at WM, and somehow drop one just to de-unify them again.
  6. WWE Hell in a Cell/Tables, Ladders, and Chairs

    that looks so bad ass in black. It would have made great tag belts rather than the nickels they use now. Even a new IC if they wanted to drop the classic design. Sucks it's wasted on cruiserweights. Bring back the WCW cruiserweight tag belt!
  7. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I saw the Sixers jerseys in person, and I have to admit, I like the shadow a lot more in person than I did when they were revealed. I still don't think it's necessary, and the difference in weights between letters and numbers still bothers me, but it's not the minor disaster that I originally thought it was. I'd love to hear an argument against them being in the top-tier of uniforms in the league (not going to get into a "top N" or a ranking thing, but they're in the highest tier.)
  8. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences I have no idea who Hassan Whiteside is, but apparently he has beef with The Process, who during a game last week, went to the sideline and told Hassan's coach to pull his ass out of the game before he fouls out. Embiid disses Whiteside and pokes fun at Kevin Durant in this exchange, and then updates his Instagram location to be "Whiteside, Scotland". He's the f'ing best.
  9. MLB Changes 2017

    The blue squatcho (screw your squatchee) sucks, and has since day one (I got one of the caps literally the day it was released, and thought it looked stupid back then too. 1. It's lost in the red. You can maybe do red on blue, but not blue on red. 2. It requires context to work. Often, caps are worn without jerseys or other team apparel, so it just doesn't make sense. It needs the stars on the wordmark to make any sense. Unpopular opinion - while I'd prefer a script more similar to the 50s or even late 40s, I would at least like to see a concept of a script kinda similar to their current one but italicized. Make the letters less "bubbly" and thick, and make the numbers more like the old 50s ones (no need for the numbers to be slanted.) It could accomplish a similar effect to how the Steelers changed their numbers to something a little more contemporary, which IMO (I know - unpopular) made a big improvement to their classic, yet "old" uniform.
  10. 2017 NFL Season

    While it wasn't the middle of the season, the Eagles signed Michael Vick who was way more controversial than Kaepernick, and caused way more distractions than he will, and the outrage and distractions (at least the media distractions) lasted a few weeks then mostly went away once the season started. It really didn't matter. If anything, the distractions can relieve pressure from the other players on the team who are no longer getting asked about every nuance of their game. There is something to be said for signing a guy that feels he should be a starter and forcing him into a backup role - it can cause a bad attitude and chemistry problems - but I don't see that being the case here. If there was collusion, and honestly it's very hard to believe that there wasn't, it was more prior to the season rather than now, since it's not that common to bring in QBs to a new system in the middle of the season. That being said, why the F not? I'm sick and tired of everyone pretending that football is some super complicated intellectual sport with systems that require years to master. Jesus christ - it's all the same, just different words for the formations. If you're a pro, you can step in and play. Stop it with the coaches that need to work 25 hour days trying to figure out how to isolate a receiver against a linebacker. Stop it with the complicated systems that take years to learn. NOne of these guys are geniuses. A lot of them are below average intelligence. It comes down to better athletes beating worse ones, and better play calls beating weaker ones. Any idiot RB knows where the hole is supposed to be, they just need to be athletic enough to hit it or cut back if it's not there.
  11. Football Fields with Baseball Diamonds

    Yeh just looked it up and you're right. I would have lost a lot of money on that bet - not sure why I felt so sure it was JFK.
  12. Football Fields with Baseball Diamonds

    Talk about in the middle of nowhere. JFK was in what is now the stadium complex, but before the Vet, was just open space way south of center city with maybe a few distribution warehouses, and north of what was then one of the biggest / most active navy yards in the country. Absolutely nothing of note around it - not even sure if the subway ran down there back in the day. FWIW, the Flyers Wells Fargo center sits where JFK once stood.
  13. Football Fields with Baseball Diamonds

    ^ Don't think the Vet counts for this exercise. I'm just old enough to remember JFK being an active stadium, hosting concerts, the Stars, and the Army/Navy game, but I dont recall seeing it with a diamond. Good pull.
  14. infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL Week Two

    No need to quote all of the images. The Browns simply can't make any top 5 list, despite their opponents. I can't get past all of the flaws of their uniform, even if at a distance, the colors look really good and match up well with their opponents. Can't argue with the others, though I'd've put Jets/Raiders #1. Carolina in white just doesn't work for me due to the white pants. Give them some silver and it's a close #2 for me this week.
  15. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    The IMpact Wrestling website still has "Total Nonstop Action" in the tab title. I thought they were dropping that. I just went through their website (which is actually less of a train wreck than it was 6 months ago) and didn't see any reference to Global Force. The only place I saw it was on the belts when there were pics of the wrestlers holding them. That can't be a good sign - references to TNA, Anthem, Impact, but not GFW (yet the new belts carry that branding.)

  17. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    And Sammy Zain is awarded the rank of Eternal Champion, a belt that is inherited by his first true-born son and his sons from this day until the end of days. He will also go on to headline the next 5 Wrestlemanias, where he (34)squashes Lesnar, (35)defeats the entire reunited Shield in a 3-on-1 handicapped match (turns out it was the Shield that was handicapped), (36)Lesnar again, (37)Kenny Omega (finally signs with WWE), and then (38)a resurrected Jesus Christ. At this point he retires and is named champion emeritus. Watching him compete served to unite Americans on both sides of the aisle, and he brought peace to our once again proud nation. Seeing this, he was designated to become the first Canadian to be carved on Mount Rushmore, and the mint began... well, minting $2 coins bearing his bust, colloquially referred to as the "zanie" (as in "hey I want to get a coke, can you spot me a zanie?")
  18. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    Lions blue pants look way darker than I imagined they'd be. The numbers too. They must certainly have darkened their blue considerably since the Sanders era. I don't mind the blue pants with the silver helmets as much as I thought I would, because the pants are so dark. I'd still prefer silver, but their nearly-royal pants look acceptable.
  19. 2017 NFL Season

    The Flyers had a roundball rockish song for their opening back in the day. Doesn't seem nearly as polished as a Tesh song but still made for a good hockey opening. Bonus young Mike Emerick.
  20. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Survivor Series has run its course. It's time to make that a Network Special, and make Starcade the fall Big 4 PPV. That logo is sweet.
  21. MLB Changes 2017

    The road pinstripes were horrific. I have no idea what they were thinking when they added those. Why the hell have pinstripes on the road but not at home? ROad pinstrips in general are dumb IMO, but especially when they're not worn at home.
  22. 2017 NFL Season

    Are the lame duck Raiders being supported well by Oakland?
  23. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    If there is some kind of supreme being up there, chances are the Brain just called him a ham-and-egger.
  24. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    Their logo doesn't work with a traditional stripe. Just the circle T* logo would.
  25. MLB Changes 2017

    You're right, I hadn't considered that. I'm not a fan of the matched number font. I think a plain block would complement the wordmark better. Maybe if there was no front number it wouldn't be as bad. I wouldn't mind if they went block on the road though.
