  1. Past hour
  2. I wouldn't go as far as saying may they "rot in hell," but I agree with your sentiment that permanent identities are better for sustainable branding in the local community. When I buy merchandise, I don't want it to be outdated in a handful of years. It's one thing for a logo update or whatever because then I just have "retro" apparel. But if the team identity has completely changed my old stuff doesn't make sense at the ballpark anymore. I have no ties to New Orleans, but I loved the Zephyrs nickname. One of my favorites in MiLB. It was unique and sounded classic. Baby Cakes is honestly kinda creepy.
  3. CBS might've protected it from SNF.....or maybe it can be flexed into SNF if the Packers are hot garbage before the visit the Chiefs.
  4. Doesn’t that game involve guns and killing? Not a great promotion or association for kids. Might as as well have a Marlboro or joe Camel theme night. Lets get some some beer pong Budweiser themed jerseys set up. ‘Binge drinking night’. i know there was backlash with this game and the NFL. They ended up getting rid of the jerseys for awhile. I think theres a reason we dont see call see call of duty, grand theft auto, or halo themed jerseys over these past few years.
  5. Should be some new team looks coming next season
  6. So sounds like Harper is already rubbing teammates the wrong way and has wore out his welcome in philly getting called out by jake Arista saying he shouldn’t be getting himself ejected over balls and strikes.
  7. Goodbye, Chicago Italians. You will be missed. May people lament you not being brought up to greatness because of a money injection by the Chicago Outfit.
  8. Honestly Id rather see the Rowdies in than Miami. Too bad the Rays have no interest in MLS.
  9. Here's a fun idea: cancel the expansion, tell Beckham to piss off, and give up on Miami. In exchange, encourage the Rowdies to assemble an ownership group to replace Inter Miami.
  10. San Antonio Missions to wear loot llama jerseys on Fortnite Night April 23, 2019 - 19:04 PM The Triple-A San Antonio Missions will wear Fortnite-themed uniforms this Saturday, April 27, in a game against the Oklahoma City Dodgers. The jerseys feature the likeness of Fortnite: Battle Royale’s supply llama—also called “loot llama” because Fortnite fans love alliteration—whose […] Read More...
  11. Well Lockhart is their temporary venue but Im not sure if they have a temporary venue for their temporary venue. I think at one point they mention Marlins Park is out. That would leave Hard Rock in Miami Gardens (unlikely), FAU in Boca Raton (only logical choice left besides sitting out another season), or Ricardo Silva at FIU (unlikely). Ricardo Silva currently hosts Miami FC of the NPSL and formerly of the ill fated NASL. Silva owns Miami FC and had FIUs stadium renamed after him. He likely wouldnt let them play there after the NASL-USSF fiasco.
  12. Today
  13. Huh. Always looked black to me but you’re right. Well then purple letters would be fine.
  14. One off branding (for a few games) are cool. But your entire identity? It feels like they could just up and change it every 1-3 years when sales stumble. What happens in 3 years when the team changes and you buy a new hat or shirt. And then again in three years. I think at some point, you stop buying the new crap. Established brands have solid sales year over year. The one trick ponies will need a sales boost every 1-3 years. That’s not sustainable. May Brandiose rot in hell. They’ve ruined a good thing. Then again, I know some non baseball fans who love the copa designs. They own more of those than the actual team gear that’s been around decades. Gimmicks are in right now. Some teams can’t rely on changing their name ever 2 years though.
  15. The Angels used every position player and even forfeited the DH spot in their 14-inning loss to the Yankees last night. Mike Trout got on base in the 9th and 11th, but was squandered. Thursday's starting pitcher Trevor Cahill, who came on in the 14th as a pinch hitter, struck out swinging to end the game. this team.
  16. Trust me, the Bruins sect in Boston has and always will have that vibe so long as the core is here. You’re right most of these guys weren’t here 8 years ago, but the primetime players were. They’ve shown the ability to not show up, and have done it too frequently in the biggest moments. I’ll spare you the list, but I’m sure @Brass can concur. As I said, it’s not at the level of Toronto. But this isn’t Dallas or Phoenix, these guys aren’t ‘relaxed’. Speaking of Dallas, is there a worse crowd in hockey? They almost put me to sleep last night - felt like a game in early October.
  17. Honest question for you: given the ebb and flow of design in general, what's your take on how long you think the gimmick name/concept in the minors will last? To me, at some point, the well is going to run dry for Brandiose as we'll be over-saturated with nonsensical food-related team names; multiple identities (which to me, dilute the actual identity) and ridiculously over-the-top gimmicks. I get that minor league baseball is supposed to be fun, but you can have fun without the multitude of 1980's WWF/WWE cartoon gimmicks.
  18. We're already at "Dallas or St. Louis will be in the West Final" something nobody would have said before the season, early in the season, midway through the season, or even late into the season. It was only in the final week or two that we got to that point. Same for Colorado having its shot. Top two seeds out. Pittsburgh and Nashville out. Three Game 7s on deck that could knock out Boston/Washington/San Jose/Vegas. It's already a postseason for the books.
  19. The New Orleans-based posters here (e.g., @B-Rich) would like to point out how it helped crater the former Zephyrs before their departure.
  20. I wouldn't hate that! The SOX monogram (is it a monogram, technically not right?) seems essential to the white pinstripes jersey but not so much on the black one.
  21. Any adidas school that didn't move over to the new template last year, maybe. I think Southern Miss will move over but not sure it will mean a change other than where the adidas logo goes and ditching the tire treads.
