  1. I'm LOLLING at "If Paterno was guilty why wasn't ever charged then? HUH HUH? RIDDLE ME THAT!" "Because he died." I don't think he's working with a full set. He's also a Steelers fan, which makes way too much sense.

  3. That is simply beautiful. Whether it resembles a Disney cartoon or not is irrelevant. A good design is a good design and this is so far ahead of the current set it's embarrassing. Speaking of the current set, how bad is the current striping configuration. Talk about an overly convoluted design. Thank god they unveiled that orange alternate. Closest thing they've had to a good jersey since 2006.

  4. Duncan represents the end of an era in several ways. Obviously the first is what he meant to the Spurs. A 19 year tenure in San Antonio, in which the worst year the Spurs ever had was in 2009-10 when they went 50-32. The only other constant during that tenure was Gregg Popovich, and I am not aware of any player who had a longer career or even one close to as long a career as Duncan had while only playing for one head coach. The second is whether or not Tim Duncan will go down as the last player in NBA history to be a Hall of Famer who played his senior year of college. He's the only NBA player I can think of in recent memory who elected to stay in school even after he reached #1 pick status and I'm not sure if we will ever see that again. Guys are just not going to turn down 7 figures worth of guaranteed money so they can spend another year working on their jump shot while living in a college dorm without earning a penny. The third is whether or not Duncan will be the last traditional big man to have the kind of impact that he had on offensive. Teams are shying away from running their offenses through post guys and the guys you see coming into the NBA now typically tend to be either defense only players, or big man who like to spread the floor. Its virtually impossible to be a traditional post player who averages 20+ points a game in the NBA now. Last year Brook Lopez was the only player to average 20+ points a game while averaging less than one three point attempt per game. Even over the course of Duncan's career you could see the Spurs shift from a ground and pound half court offensive to full court transition offense and the fact that they've done so without missing a beat I think speaks to how great of a coach Gregg Popovich really is. What was even more amazing to watch was how unchanged Duncan remained throughout that transition. He took a reduced role offensively, but it wasn't until he was in his mid-30's that his lost his role as the Spurs primary scoring option and even then it seemed to have far more to do with age and declining ability than any type of philosophical change. In short what I'm trying to say is I've always looked at Duncan at being the last great player from what was already a bygone generation when he broke into the league. Its almost as if Bob Lanier's more talented brother fell into a time machine. Tim Ducan didn't present anything that hadn't been seen before, but he may have presented things that may never be seen again at level in which he did them at for as long as he did. A perfection of simplicity that made him one of the greatest players to ever walk on a basketball court. Also if anyone is looking for a good Tim Duncan drinking game, drink every time your hear someone mention the word class. That's the buzz word for the day.

  7. THIS is a great looking uniform... THIS looks like exactly what it is... A uniform with a new piece added that wasn't designed when all the other pieces were.

  8. i think this shows a real change in hierarchy of elements. the gray pants pair better with the blue - the lesser contrast lets the numbers grab your attention first, which is really as it should be. the white pants though grab your attention first and i think that looks wrong because theres no reason for pants to be at the top if visual hiearchy. i would definitely orefer a single red stripe on the white pants ( and gray really ) because that would tie all the pieces together much better. still, the player just looks top heavy with white pants. and really lacks a vintage flair which hurts the most, personally

  9. im disapointed in the Giants pants choice. the uniform is a throwback and what makes it really unique today are the gray pants. white pants are so expected and this is a move that makes the uniform start to look really generic. i see why some prefer it but theres nothing more bland than a red white and blue American sports team.

  10. I don't think so. Then there would be an uneven blob of eggplant from the pants to the middle of the jersey

  12. I was hoping he'd play one more season, for a very stupid reason. I did not want him going into the HOF with Kobe. Tim Duncan will barley be acknowledged on Kobe Bryant Day. The Big Fundamental had himself a hell of a career. I'll miss having him around.

  13. A couple things... First, I'm fine with bringing back the Joe Paterno statue. I think he's earned it - provided the plaque on that statue reads... "Joe Paterno - Enabled child rape for at least 12-13 years. Maybe more. Then was either directly involved in a cover up, or turned a blind eye to a cover up. Blamed a lack of action on his superiors. Continued to employ a pedophile. Did exactly nothing when informed by one of his coaches that the defensive coordinator was seen raping a child in the team's shower room. Had the good sense to -ing die before he could be questioned further in the Jerry Sandusky matter. He was either the most clueless mother-er who ever lived, or he was part of the most vile thing to ever happen in college sports. We're betting on the latter. Oh, and he also won some football games." On viola73's suspension -I think he earned it with his overall behavior. The guy is always looking for a fight.

  14. Looks kind of like a hockey jersey to me? Great crest? Check. Identifiable stripe? Check. Unique proprietary colors? Check. Bold large legible numbers? Check. If it looks like a hockey jersey? It's a hockey jersey.

  19. That logo is way better than the logo they use now. But then again, a picture of a German Shepard's shaved ass would look better than the logo they have now.

  20. If Timmy's career must come to an end, I'm glad he's just quietly retiring. No drawn-out, histrionic, selfish, ego-driven retirement tours like certain other players - just bowing out and letting his impressive career speak for itself.

  21. JoePa is a clear case study of why not to hold people to near God like status. I understand people revere what he did on the field as a coach, but you can't over look the stuff he allowed to happen which we have discussed repeatedly. It's unfortunate this is his legacy now but it is what it is.

  25. I feel like something's missing from all of those "THE Orlando Magic" logos. Like maybe the frequency. THE ORLANDO MAGIC 93.7. The best soft rock hits from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. 93.7, Orlando!

  26. Unpopular opinion, but I preferred the old gray pants (2000-11 on the blues, 2000-04 on the whites). I liked how they were consistent with the helmet stripe. A little cohesion wouldn't have hurt the vintage aesthetic that much.

  27. Alabma- I like the Vulcans name (Black and red), (Due to Birmingham's history as a steel manufacturering center) For Albuquerque, why not call them the Atoms or Fusion (acid green and black) (due to the proximity of the Los Alamos Laboratory, their baseball team is named the Isotopes after all) or the Invaders (Named for the amount of UFO sightings in New Mexico) (Green, Black, Grey). Hartford- Blues (name of the previous NFL team in the city) (Blue and White) Hawaii- Islanders (keep the color scheme though) Lincoln- No idea Louisville- The Stallions (reflects Kentucky's horse culture) (Cardinal Red, University Blues Montreal (Quebec City doesn't have a viable stadium, Montreal has Molson Stadium, and Olympic Stadium for bigger games and playoffs)- Polaris works Orlando, Why not the Rockets (Red, Blue, Gold) or the Suns (Orange, Black, Yellow) Portland- Pioneers is perfect, (Navy and Gold) Oklahoma City- The 89ers name can work, what about the Drillers San Antonio- The Nightmare name doesn't suit San Antonio, why not the Generals (Army green, black, white), a military theme suits San Antonio Syracuse (Better than Bronx, Yankee Stadium isn't meant for Football, but if you decide on Bronx, Call them the New York Knights, the color scheme can stay the way it is) Gladiators (fits the Roman nameskake) St Louis- The Archers name is unique keep it Virgina- Destroyers (Navy, Yellow, White)

  33. To be honest, I don't see the problem with "censoring" stuff like, "child rape is cool if you win football games". There are limits to the level with which oppositional comments forment healthy discussions. This is a private message board, not the government. It's perfectly acceptable and legal to not issue (or immediately revoke) dinner invitations to boors who utter such views, and any punishment issued by the moderation team is akin to that rather than being tossed in jail.

  35. He went off on five straight posts that basically amounted to "you're all SJW libtards who hate Paterno, America, and yourselves." No one poked him. He'd already jumped off the ledge by the time the first person responded.

  36. He was trolling. It's a weird thing ignorant conservatives do when they feel morally obligated to stir the hornet's nest and be as mule-headed as possible just to get a laugh. It's not even something that can be debated, really. Raping children is bad. Enabling child rape is bad. What's to argue? He was just gonna go and go and go.

  37. Sandusky was allowed to be free for another 12-13 years and got to take what was to the world at the time an honorable retirement complete with a public pension and freedom to use athletic department facilities. That's protection and enabling in just about anyone's book. And yet you also expect me to believe that a guy who had enough power and influence to survive the absolute wretchedness of those early 2000s Penn State teams doesn't have enough power to even get a campus/athletic facility ban put into the retirement settlement? And this ignores that Paterno didn't go to the cops, who were also guys that could actually do something and who you yourself have established that he can easily contact.

  39. "Raping children is okay if it means that this old man gets immortalized." You keep trying to argue your way out of the blanket statement, but this is what you're claiming. You can't win. You won't win. You're wrong. Paterno is dead, his statue is rightfully down, and hopefully they burn his entire existence into ash and then salt the earth they burned it upon. Just to spite you and anyone poisoned in the head like you who feels there is a debate to be had over the merits of children getting raped by old men and turning a blind eye. Plenty of people in this country don't deserve the iconic standing they've had throughout history. We had rapists, slavers, murderers, and many more undesirables painted and printed and sculpted but the difference is we're trying to be better than our forebears. Trying. By restoring a statue of a football coach at the sacrifice of dulling the history of what happened in that place, you're basically declaring acceptance and looking the other way on what happened to those goddamn children. Which is exactly what Paterno did, which says a lot about you.
