  1. Past hour
  2. back on topic, the Reds uniforms today look weird with nothing on the front
  3. He played for the Bills for 9 years, including leading them to the biggest comeback in playoff history. How is that not a right uniform for him?
  4. Yes, there's nothing really dated about Marlins Park at all. Some design flaws as I mentioned, but overall it's about as comfortable as pro baseball can get in South Florida. SunTrust exceeds it in terms of location by far, though. The former Orange Bowl was really not a smart choice for a site and this isn't even speaking in hindsight. Marlins Park is basically a spaceship that landed in a lower income neighborhood with not much room to be built up in the way that SunTrust has been. This is where the Marlins were particularly shortsighted in their planning. Having said that, the location issue should certainly not be enough for them to abandon a $700 million facility that is more than suitable for baseball.
  5. I get why this is happening. I don't like it, but I get it. Thank you for at least offering a grace period for people to get everything archived. I've seen stuff like this happen before. Someone creates a fanfic community, things are great at first, then more people come in, make it a much bigger deal then it should be, drama flares and at the end of the day, keeping things up is a much bigger headache then tearing it all down.
  6. On the very rare occasions you see them, sashes are very cool on hockey sweaters, so I'm all the way on board.
  7. The ESPN graphics package from ~2004-2006 was always my personal favorite as well.
  8. I think the Canucks may be the only team in all of professional sports in which all the colors on their logo are not the primary nor secondary colors for the team (in this case royal blue and green).
  9. Today
  10. I’m just shocked that someone would call a 7 year old stadium old. A stadium that is the second youngest stadium in the MLB, with no plans for other teams to get new stadiums in the near future other than the rangers. And the stadium that is newer than it I’d argue isn’t even a better park. That stadium alone is what will keep the Marlins there, if they leave town no matter where they go they will get no support because they will look like a grimy organization that’ll leave at the first chance they can.
  11. Anything before I post the next jersey?
  12. I'm not a fan of promotion and relegation but you could throw Conference USA in that list as well. Maybe even switch the AAC and CUSA to ACC and Big XII
  13. Yesterday’s matchups:
  14. Well Cincinnati is the closest to me, so Reds and Bengals, But they have no basketball or hockey, technically I should be a Sacramento Kings fan? Because they once upon a time played in Cincy? Well I’m not, I chose the spurs because 8 year old me didn’t know what a spur was and loved their colors. Hockey I still really don’t have a team, although I have kinda takin to Vegas because their new
  15. Pretty much all of my teams! I think my first non-local team were the Sharks for this reason (1991!), even though I wasn't uni-conscious. It wasn't until I recently got into the uni-verse on social media that I started noticing colors and uniforms. Then it exploded from there. Plus recent teams and branding added to it.
  16. But there's nothing obsolete about it, so I'd call it state of the art. There are certainly some design flaws but that has nothing to do with its age. If it were opening next season I doubt we would have seen much more modernization, if any. Yes, there were renovations during the offseason, but much of that was due to Jeter's desire to remove memories of Loria. They were more aesthetic changes than functional.. Yes, ballparks are being replaced slightly more quickly recently but I would call that more the exception than the norm. The Braves had the shortest window and Turner Field, a facility not purely designed for baseball in the first place, still endured for 20 years. Given the park's suitability for baseball in rainy humid weather and the $600 million investment from county and city governments, I don't think you can expect a serious conversation about relocation for at least another 20 years. MLB us going to give Jeter all the time in the world to get the team in shape unless he first gives up on his own. I am just having trouble envisioning a remotely plausible or realistic scenario where the Marlins could move before then. The stadium is the anchor; the lack of funding for a retractable roof park was the only impetus behind the relocation considerations had circa 2005-2006. If MLB is really getting impatient with Jeter, I presume they'd first try to oust him somehow from the control position especially since his personal financial stake in the franchise is quite low. The stadium is poorly located (for me at least), but the Marlins attendance since 2013 can mostly be attributed to pervasive management issues far more than anything else. They won't abandon a still new park because of that.
  17. I feel like they've been trying to do both (albeit unsuccessfully) with all of the terrible alternates they've rolled out over the last 10 years.
  18. I've despised the Canucks' Orca ever since the former Orca Bay ownership shoved their corporate identity onto the Canucks brand, however the logo looked a lot better in the original colours which were a bland 90's look. Now, the Orca just takes up space on the Canucks' beautiful royal blue and green look with its corporate two-tone blue and silver appearance. Definitely agree here. The Phillies' classic P looks great in both red and maroon. I prefer the maroon because red is very common and no other MLB team wears maroon as a primary colour. It's a colour the Phillies can own like the Athletics own green.
  19. Alright, Cincinnati fans, this is the moment we’ve all been waiting for. You’ve taken our most prized possession, last place in the table, and we want it back. Who wants to lose more? We’ll soon find out!
  20. I'd argue that while never a starter, he's more well known in a Bills uniform than any other he ever wore.
  21. @BrandMooreArt one more thing. The more modern design is a thousand times better with the updates. The passage of time I believe will be kind to that design and provided the team can continue to show the original uniforms on the field it can give the team two looks to showcase which is good for sales and helps to cater to multiple audiences. We all have our favorites though
  22. Some day, we’re going to look back on these Warriors teams the same way we do the MJ Bulls. Today is not that day.
  23. What are you trying to achieve though, as the Pistons? If it's just to have the (subjectively) coolest logo, that's fine. But for an old, storied franchise like the Pistons, nostalgia and a classic look is so much more engaging for fans. Sports branding isn't about gaining new fans, you do that by winning and having marketable players. Sports branding is about engaging your fanbase and getting them to care enough to part with their money. Because of that, the target market doesn't really include people who don't know about the historical significance.
  24. Thanks for the insight. The process you describe sounds very thoughtful which is good to know.
  25. Aside from Newcastle, Ajax, and Werder Bremen, all of the teams I like in foreign soccer leagues are because of their look. OGC Nice, Roma, Valencia, AIK, etc.
