  1. Past hour
  2. Oregon State is going to look good losing to every team in the Pac-12.
  3. Now we're just waiting on UW which isn't until the summer
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. "The draft lottery is rigged!" -t. Every fan outside of New York right now.
  7. And finally, the last two of this year’s Parley matchups:
  8. 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.
  9. Today
  10. My dream is to one day replace that with an actual photo of an actual banner.
  11. Eh, they wear them on Saturday's typically, which is why the Dbacks series was probably ignored as it's a midweek series.
  12. 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.
  13. That's what I figured. Good editorial choice.
  14. He's right. The new scripts really benefit from the added balance (ballast?) of front numbers.
  15. Well. :censored:. Good Tank New York. Good tank funkling Stjngrays
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. I’m just surprised I haven’t seen it be made a class thing yet.
  20. The same goes for FC Cincinnati and Columbus. The rivalry will have two games in three weeks. I guess they picked a good month for the Hell Is Real Series
  21. LAFC really walloped Seattle yesterday and I expect more of the same Wednesday, though a lot of that depends on what team Seattle fields. Sounders definitely played a lesser squad due to injury, but I don't expect Ruidiaz back on Wednesday. In any event, I don't think it would have made any difference yesterday. LAFC looks amazing and Vela is the best player in the league right now.
  22. Just wanna say I'm so glad Pollin exists in this universe too. Absolutely a legend of DC sports, to this very day.
  23. Vince loves the concept of having kayfabe authority figures while he does all the work himself.
  24. And then, you look at the Leafs...
