In the mid 1980s, the St. Louis Football Cardinals were looking for a new home. Their current stadium was getting old and was in need of a replacement. They later decided to move their franchise to Phoenix. But what if this stadium was built? During the same time in Oklahoma City, a tax plan was being voted on. A part of this plan was to build the stadium above in the State Fairgrounds. A dome with a capacity of 70,000, it would have been sure to gain an NFL team. Too bad the bill was shot down. But what if it hadn't? Instead of moving to Phoenix, what if the Cardinals went to Oklahoma instead? How would this butterfly effect the NFL as a whole? And most importantly of all, what would the uniforms look like? Together with @FDW and @neo_prankster, We will be presenting the world where one stadium can change Earth and it's sports forever.
What if the NHL absorbed 8 teams from the WHA? A Hockey Week Alternate History - Sportslogos page NHL 2015
hockey week posted a topic in ConceptsIt's been a long time since I've done an alternate history, my previous two, the original Ottawa Senators http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/73848-what-if-the-original-senators-never-folded/ and the Montreal Maroons http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/73802-what-if-the-maroons-never-folded/ Got some great opinions. but someone mentioned an idea (and I wish I remembered who) that intrigued me enough to go after, because it's nowhere near as straightforward as one would think. What if the NHL had taken more teams from the World Hockey Association? Of course we know that the NHL absorbed the Hartford Whalers, Quebec Nordiques, Winnipeg Jets, and Edmonton Oilers before the 1979-80 season, what if they took four more? Joining the NHL in this hypothetical are: Birmingham Bulls Houston Aeros Indianapolis Racers Cincinnati Stingers along with the usual 4. Now, this will cause some difficulties, for instance, the Minnesota North Stars wouldn't move to Dallas if there's already a team in Houston. Columbus won't be an NHL city if there's already a team in Cincinnati, and so on. However, I like following Doctor Who time travel logic in that some things are meant to be, so there'll be some familiar looks and logos throughout. So without further ado, the first team to be unveiled will be: Cincinnati Stingers Upon entry to the NHL, the Boston Bruins threw a fit over Cincinnati's jerseys, and rightfully so. They had just lost the battle over keeping the Pittsburgh Penguins away from black and gold, they wouldn't be beaten twice. The color they would add? Cincinnati Red. However, there wasn't time to redesign the uniforms that first season, and until proper jerseys could be ordered, red fabric was sewn overtop the original stripes. It would work for the first season. 1979-80 1980-88 The gold is lightened to yellow and a new look and logo introduced for the season. The Stingers were here to stay. 1988-94 At the end of the 1980s, teams were being discouraged from using gold at home in lieu of a white jersey. Cincinnati changes their home gold to white.
