  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. They "share" the history, but that's really only a technically. The Thunder had a deal with Seattle that the history and identity would revert to Seattle if they got a team within five years of the Thunder leaving. That never happened, so the Thunder are under no obligation to let a new Seattle team have the identity/record books.
  4. I want a mini of that Packers helmet.
  5. Ironically, Syracuse is another city with a traditional nickname (Chiefs) that would lend itself to simply applying the parent club's brand.
  6. I pretty much expect this headline in a few years: 2022 NHL Playoff Update: "Expansion Seattle stuns the Sharks 4 games to 1 in the First Round"
  7. Braves were probably the most notorious for that. Then there's the Mets who saw the B-Mets become the Rumble Ponies and their AAA affiliate switched to Syracuse and suddenly they're now the Mets.
  8. First three of this weekend’s Parley matchups: Few notes: - Players are wearing white undershirts with the light blue kits and black with the dark blue kits rather than undershirts that match the color of the kits. Same can be said for the compression shorts. - The Galaxy apparently took it upon themselves to add the 5 stars to their Parley shirts. None of the other clubs have their championship stars on their Parley shirts (at least from what we’ve seen so far in these games and from the promotional materials). - Even though the shade of blue isn’t right, Minnesota’s Parley kit is arguably better than both their current secondary and their secondary from the last two seasons.
  9. Add getting curbstomped by goddamn Vegas twice in the team’s first two years and you have a recipe for a team I simply can’t root for any longer. That’s the three biggest rivals the Sharks will ever have and they’ve been flat out embarrassed by all three with zero real redemption. I can’t have an ounce of respect a team like that.
  10. Chargers get yellow facemask, w powder blue uni. I now need a yellow mask for my collection of current and 80s mini helmets. These guys know more than anyone else about stuff like that. I ask them, they showed me, i bought the mask.
  11. I really like the idea of a individual sport being that dynamic, but for me this concept might work better with on a 2v2 with substitutes and goals on both ends of the court.
  12. Just make sure you're one of the 52% of teams that make the playoffs, but the seeding doesn't really matter. The playoffs are a new season (a thing that's said of the NBA, but actually true of the NHL). The Lightning hadn't lost three games in-a-row in the regular season and then get swept in the playoffs. It's like when Jinder Mahal jobbed for months and then won like three matches to become WWE Champion. Except I'd be interested in seeing the Blue Jackets or Avalanche win it all.
  13. I'm with you. I personally prefer when teams keep their names in spite of logic. Los Angeles Lakers for instance. Is that the situation with OKC and the Sonics? I've never been clear on it. I thought the Thunder kept the history or maybe are sharing it with Seattle, while letting Seattle keep the name.
  14. Wins and losses in the NHL don't matter, much like the WWE. Keep the re-merged team in the Bay Area and you got an instant championship without doing anything!
  15. And just like that, both #1 seeds have been taken down by # 8 seeds. And both #1 seeds got their asses handed to them in the process. Also, Mike Smith, Ladies and Gentlemen. Coming off the momentum of his shutout in game one, Smith caught fire and held Colorado to just 17 goals in the next four games. Funny game, this hockey.
  16. It was also smart of Selig to keep the two good parts of the Pilots’ brand, namely the color scheme and light blue road uniforms.
  17. Poor Calgary. Fans must have been so relived when the Lighting got swept. I knew there was a reason I didn't trust them 1 bit in the playoffs.
  18. Saving Silverman. Wheaton Warbirds.
  19. My feelings on Bud Selig are as mixed as any other fan. But one thing he truly got right from the beginning was building the Brewers brand on a foundation of Milwaukee's past baseball traditions. Adopting the Brewers name. Barrel Man logo. The block M monogram. Bringing in Hank Aaron. Having Aaron's #44 be the first number ever retired by the Brewers (thus tying the Hammer's legacy to Milwaukee as much as the Braves franchise).
  20. That wouldn't surprise me if that were the case. Some organizations like the Yankees and Cardinals used to take it a step further and made affiliates adopt the parent club's whole identity.
  21. It'll be interesting, if the Islanders face the Leafs at some point.
