  1. Past hour
  2. Feel like color-vs-color is not utilized often enough. When teams have 4-5 color options, going color-vs-white seems to be lazy planning.
  3. Are there any pics of Marlins Park shadows? I cant seem to find any good ones.
  4. I will give Vegas this, at home they are a fast and compelling team to watch. And even if they are all bandwagoners, the T-Mobile crowd has put San Jose to shame. I really don't buy The Tank being this top-tier home ice advantage it may have been a decade ago. Will it be rocking tomorrow night, sure that's not the question. But compared to Calgary, Vegas, heck even the Islanders, the seventh man is severely lacking right now in Northern California. All those niceities out of the way, welcome to Thunderdome Knights fans. Your asses are long overdue to pay back some of those receipts.
  5. I like Bucfan, I truly do, but this schtick is getting stale and then some. For a guy who claims he doesn't waste his time following San Jose, he sure comments an awful lot about their shortcomings in this thread. I appreciate the Sharks making a series out of this and was excited to see Hertl write a check that his ass could actually cash, but they can't continue to get outshot 2-1 on the shots on goal. Especially against an up and coming squad in Colorado who already slayed one giant, the Sharks will need to prove they're more of the team in January that went on a seven game winning streak and not the team that limp-dicked into the playoffs and barely got home ice.
  6. Thanks for everyone who brought the survey total from 40 to 84 responses. The results are below:
  7. Huh. Maybe they haven't lost at home in them? Yea I was watching both Marlins and Dodgers games and they both had shadow problems at home plate. Almost like they were in the same park.
  8. And being a fan of the NHL is a harsh existence. Vegas fans haven't had that experience yet. It'd be good for them.
  9. Today
  10. For me, it's not about an inability to distinguish between the teams that are playing on-screen. I can figure that out right away. The main issue is that it looks bad the majority of the time, especially during the playoffs.
  11. Oregon State is going to look good losing to every team in the Pac-12.
  12. Now we're just waiting on UW which isn't until the summer
  13. The drop shadow on the numbers really makes a difference. I'm beginning to sour on the current set because of the black alt and the striping issues. also the niners set is very simple but when we have been losing this much over the years, the uni set can look very unappealing
  14. The consistency is great. My only gripe is the shoulder strip thickness doesn't match the pants stripe thickness. "Beavs" is pretty terrible. The wood grain pattern is subtle and therefore not distracting on the numbers. I don't love it, but no need to deduct points for it. Its a bummer that the pants stripe doesn't go all the way to edge, but Nike always has to have some stupid reason why... "It helps the knee bend 0.00001254792 degree farther, thus increasing speed any quickness." I'm going to shock myself here, and its only because these uniforms are so well done witht heir consistency and uniformity... I wish they had a white helmet option.
  15. "The draft lottery is rigged!" -t. Every fan outside of New York right now.
  16. And finally, the last two of this year’s Parley matchups:
  17. While the St. Louis coach is also the general manager, the positions of head coach and GM involve two different sets of responsibilities. Assuming that the XFL will allow teams to trade players between the league's teams, someone has to make the decisions about which players to pursue and which players to offer. This is not purely a business decision; it is also a player personnel decision. You seem to be suggesting that all teams should have coaches who double as GMs. But that seems a bit unrealistic, as few coaches would want the additional load of administrative duties that come with being a general manager.
  18. My dream is to one day replace that with an actual photo of an actual banner.
  19. Eh, they wear them on Saturday's typically, which is why the Dbacks series was probably ignored as it's a midweek series.
  20. You are correct that the city decided not to sink $700 million into the Edward Jones Dome renovations that were proposed by the Rams. You are, therefore, correct that the lease went to a year-by-year basis, so once the lease ran out of time the Rams could leave regarding their contract with the city. However, the NFL's relocation policies contained in their constitution and bylaws also exist. I unfortunately cannot find a PDF copy of those bylaws online (I'm sure they're out there somewhere), so the best I can do for a reference is newspaper reports on what they say. Here's one from the Star Tribune: http://www.startribune.com/nfl-s-relocation-policy-and-procedures/148181325/ Contained within these policies is a requirement that there be negotiations in "good faith" with the community that the team currently exists within. C.3 states that taken into consideration is "the adequacy of the stadium in which the club played its home games in the previous season; the willingness of the stadium authority or the community to remedy any deficiencies in or to replace such facility, including whether there are legislative or referenda proposals pending to address these issues; and the characteristics of the stadium in the proposed new community;" C.6 and C.7 state that factors that must be considered, respectively, are: "the degree to which the club has engaged in good faith negotiations (and enlisted the League office to assist in such negotiations) with appropriate persons concerning terms and conditions under which the club would remain in its current home territory and afforded that community a reasonable amount of time to address pertinent proposals," and "The degree to which the owners or managers of the club have contributed to circumstances which might demonstrate the need for such relocation..." SO, actually, yes, the viability of the plan proposed by the city is relevant and in question, as was the degree of good faith to which Kroenke negotiated. I'd argue, and the city is arguing in its lawsuit, that Kroenke never intended to stay in St. Louis. EDIT: I will, add, though, that I entirely agree with this NYT article. As heartbreaking as it was for St. Louis and its Rams fans, and as much as I place the fiasco's blame on the shoulders of Kroenke, it could have been disastrous for St. Louis to keep the Rams. Frankly, the city didn't have the money to renovate the Dome and it wasn't going to have the money to build the riverfront stadium. The MLS bid is better for the city because it's going to be private dollars to build the stadium. Sure, there will be tax assistance, but there won't be actual public debt incurred on the stadium. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/16/sports/football/st-louis-should-be-glad-it-lost-the-rams.html
  21. That's what I figured. Good editorial choice.
  22. He's right. The new scripts really benefit from the added balance (ballast?) of front numbers.
  23. Well. :censored:. Good Tank New York. Good tank funkling Stjngrays
  24. I really like the subtle pins on the Nats. Great use of the new alternate cap design. If it were me, I'd make the pants/sleeve designs narrower. Personal preference as I think there's a limit to how thick you can make pants striping in baseball.
  25. I say buy it and wear it. If you used moral upstangingness as your criterion, you could wear nothing but St. Pauli gear. The team I support most, NYCFC, has an owner who is the deputy prime minister of the UAE, where homosexuality is a capital crime. Two other teams, Chelsea and the Nets, are owned by theiving Russian oligarchs. When I was a Yankee fan, I knew full well that Steinbrenner was a Nixon supporter and a major Republican contributor. None of this prevented/prevents me from wearing these teams' gear, as a team takes on a meaning and an identity that are separate from the identity and the persona of its owner. (What prevents me from wearing Nets gear is its total lack of aesthetic merit.) The point is that there is no clean money. All of these scumbags should go up against the wall after the revolution; but, until then, I am happy to have them fund my entertainment. On the question of the AAF in particular, I think you should resist the urge to demonise the league too much. There is certainly no valid comparison to the Fyre Festival, which was nothing but an intent to scam from the beginning, or even to Theranos, which started as a serious business but then quickly degenerated into a scam perpetrated by its founder. By contrast, the AAF's founders didn't scam anyone; they had every intention of running the league and paying the players and coaches on an ongoing basis. It was only when one of the early backers suddenly disappeared that the AAF became vulnerable to takeover by a predatory investor who had no wish to operate the league according to its founders' plan. If only Reggie Fowler, the early investor who flaked out, had backed off earlier; in that case the league could probably have survived by delaying its debut season until next year (and thereby avoiding having to cede control to the vulture Tom Dundon). I disagree with the vitriol directed by torch-bearing mob towards Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian, as Ebersol's grand statements about the league were true when he made them. Also, the egregious events after the league folded, such as leaving players without medical coverage and not paying so many creditors, must be blamed entirely on Dundon and on no one else. So, even if you want to bring ethics into your choice of team gear, AAF gear can still be worn with a clear conscience on account of the good intentions involved in the league's founding.
  26. The Rockies look bad in pinstripes for two reasons. 1. The hollowness of their lettering creates strokes around empty space that doesn’t look good when out on top of pinstripes that are essentially strokes around empty space. 2. Serifs can sometimes look awkward on top of pinstripes with thin lines crossing thin lines. Look at at the I and E. The I kinda looks like two pinstripes on top of pinstripes, and the serif on the E looks like the pinstripe is crooked in places.
