    QF-effing-T. Although I think the Ravens are at the very least equally guilty, what with their black helmets and purple jerseys.

    Pointless? Surely you jest. The 'RAMS' moniker embroidered on the left leg embodies Colorado State's spirit of leaping through the tough terrain of the Mountain West. It proves to opponents that Rams have a strong desire for conquest. The angle it sits on the thigh mimics the slope of the 4th-from-the-right dash on the university's seal. *I spent way too long looking up dumb things to come with for this... I don't know how these companies do it In all seriousness though, that thigh stripe is so dumb and ruins a lot of great looks for UA.

    Give Lochte a little credit...he was smart enough to get the hell out of Brazil. And when Lochte is the smartest one of any quartet, the other three should be ashamed of themselves.

    I'm not sure if this would work. The preseason of the NFL is more like game prep for regular season, while the NBA Summer League is a showcase of rookies, second years, and unsigned free agents.

    I mentioned in my Bill Simmons thread that we could benefit from a sport media thread. Well here it is! This is where you discuss sports media, link to Awful Announcing stories, post Gus Johnson clips, and more. I've been looking for a place to discuss Gawker vs. Hogan, and this is good as any. After too many days' silence, Gawker finally spoke up: http://gawker.com/the-hogan-verdict-1766460791 If Hulk Hogan's penis is the hill they wanted to die on, they deserve what they can get. This is the exceptionally bad opinion from Nick Denton's post: "If only you hadn't read what we posted, we wouldn't be in this mess!" No one wanted to see Hulk Hogan have sex, and Heather Cole definitely didn't want the world to see her have sex. That Hogan is a public figure or that he said embarrassing racist things is irrelevant; there's no public right to know about the sex lives of others.

    The year is 1990. Gretzky and Hull are in the prime of their careers, the world hasn't yet been dazzled by Pavel Bure, and the goalies were looser than the slots at an off-strip Vegas casino. With the Soviet Union in its final days, the top Soviet sports authorities convened with the top North American ones and decided to create a new hockey league with players able to move freely from nation to nation. The 20-team league had a draft to disperse the players from the Soviet League and NHL, but for the most part, the Russian players stayed in the Soviet Union and the North American and European players stayed in North America and Europe. The teams are broken down into two conferences: North American and European and further broken down into the American and Canadian Divisions and Eastern and Western Divisions in Europe. This project will use my artwork and a hockey game simulator that I've developed to simulate from the 1990-91 season until today. The focus is not so much on the fantasy side of it but the uniforms and evolution of a hockey league. What I need are some GMs to make this more realistic. As far as the GMs role is concerned, you will set your lineup every 4 games (or I can automatically), trade players, sign free agents and take part in the rookie draft each season. Points will be given to each GM for wins, successful free agent signings, trades, and huge points for multi-player trades. The points will be added up at the end of the season, and GMs will have the choice for a redesign, new logos, new uniforms, etc. One of the cool things about starting in 1990-91 (in addition to it being my favorite season of NHL hockey) is that you have the benefit of knowing how each player's career goes and can sign that low level free agent or draft that depth player that will be great in 5 years. You can choose to go all out to win the championship or build a dynasty. The ratings are taken from some 1990-91 mods for NHL 09 as well as from a statistical analysis of players' performance in that year. Important links: Rosters Stats/Standings Schedule Rules

    Gawker deserved some kind of peckerslap for the Hogan tape (not to mention outing Tim Geithner's brother because Conde Nast owns Reddit and they don't like Reddit), but not being run out of business through a series of lawsuits. You can't seriously believe that they do. Sometimes I wonder if Americans, left unchecked, truly believe in First Amendment rights.

    I hate to be a stick in the mud, but what is this love for the 1964-1972 Rams uniforms. I like Gabriel #18 and the foursome, but man! I see those uniforms have history, but they look identical to the Colts and pretty bland!

    That said, commissioners can influence such things. It's not a coincidence that the first 21st century ugly MLB uniform came right on the heels of Selig retiring as commissioner.

    I've had plenty of time to work on these the last couple of days, so I have another one today. However, with school and soccer both starting up, my time will be severely limited from now on. Phoenix Scorpions Founded: 1975 (Relocated from Eau Claire 1979, Green Bay 1994) Division: West Union Cups: 1 (2008) Moelduer Shields: 2 (2007, 2010) Since relocating from Wisconsin in '94, the Scorpions have been sensational, always competing for the West Division crown. The most dominant era came in the mid 2000s, where the Scorpions pulled in three trophies and reached 5 consecutive Union Cups from 2007-2011. As their stars grew old, Phoenix fell down into the middle of the table, but their squad is filled with experienced winners and are always poised to make a deep run. The Scorpoins have always sported super simple and classy kits, which complements their silhouette logo perfectly. I thought the kits looked too simple, so I added a yoke with rays from the Arizona state flag. The away is just a white version of the home, with a red yoke. C&C appreciated!

    @Thomas Look, its real simple. The NHL and the NHLPA will probably not play in the Olympics again. Would you rather have no World Cup or would you rather have the World Cup of Hockey with all the NHL stars . Those are your two options.

    And the NHL is trying to make their World Cup the world championship, you just don't like it because it hasn't been around forever. I think your argument is a bit flawed.

    I've said it before, black and purple is a terrible color scheme that should never be used together. However, using it in a way that the Dolphins used aqua and navy between 1997-2012 could work, were aqua was the main color and navy was just an accent color. If I had a say, I'd do purple and metallic gold (or possibly silver to distance themselves from being like the Vikings, because I don't think we can really have the two purple teams in the league using similar colors) as the main colors and use black as an accent color to the logos and maybe the fonts.

    Up next are the St. Petersburg (Leningrad until halfway through the season) Horsemen. They get their name from the Czar Peter statue in St. Petersburg. The Horsemen have a Russian heavy roster that may surprise during the season.

    ...But that IS what it is... At least that's what I was going for. I thought about doing that, but I was worried about making the logo too long. I figured if I made the state outline too realistic, it would lose some of that modern vibe. I'll give it a try, I guess.

    Up next are the Riga Griffins. They get their name from the main animal from the Latvian coat of arms. The Griffins feature the best in Latvian hockey talent in goaltender Arturs Irbe and young defenseman Sandis Ozolinsh. Scoring will probably be led by Valeri Kamensky.

    Definitely! That's an immense improvement. I'm really digging the barley stalk pattern on the socks. I still think it could benefit from some front numbers, but this is a really promising new direction regardless.

    What a fantastic concept! This is bringing back all the feels of the memories of playing the crap out of Madden 08 franchise mode (which I still own and play). Loving what you've done so far. Keep it up. Edit: You can actually see what Madden intended for the names based on the three letter abbreviation on each logo file. Most of your name choices are pretty close, but if I recall, sometimes you could get lucky and have Madden actually broadcast a team nickname instead of just "the HOME team" if you chose correctly.

    #3 is a 3rd jersey for the San Jose Sharks using their new logos. I really like their black 3rd with little teal and white but IF they change it I'd expect more teal so that's what this design is based on.

    There are rumors UGA will have red road pants versus Missouri in week three. I can't verify this yet but... Here's a mockup I did. Looks really nice. I hope they do it like the black pants from a number of years ago where it still has the red, white, and black stripe. Basically one of the stripes is hidden and blends into the pants color.

    NHL franchises have almost always rebranded when they've moved. 1920 Quebec Bulldogs > Hamilton Tigers 1930 Pittsburgh Pirates > Philadelphia Quakers 1934 Ottawa Senators > St. Louis Eagles 1976 California Golden Seals > Cleveland Barons 1976 Kansas City Scouts > Colorado Rockies 1980 Atlanta Flames > Calgary Flames 1982 Colorado Rockies > New Jersey Devils 1993 Minnesota North Stars > Dallas Stars 1995 Quebec Nordiques > Colorado Avalanche 1996 Winnipeg Jets > Phoenix Coyotes 1997 Hartford Whalers > Carolina Hurricanes 2011 Atlanta Thrashers > Winnipeg Jets Out of 12 franchise relocations only 2 have kept the same name, and Minnesota to Dallas only half counts, since they obviously had to drop the "North" from North Stars.

    modern-era baseball relocations: Boston Braves --> Milwaukee Braves St. Louis Browns --> Baltimore Orioles Philadelphia Athletics --> Kansas City Athletics Brooklyn Dodgers --> Los Angeles Dodgers New York Giants --> San Francisco Giants Washington Senators --> Minnesota Twins Milwaukee Braves --> Atlanta Braves Kansas City Athletics --> Oakland Athletics Seattle Pilots --> Milwaukee Brewers Washington Senators II --> Texas Rangers Montreal Expos --> Washington Nationals First of all, 11 relocations in over a century is pretty stable. It's 6 to 5 in favor of keeping, so indeed as close as you're gonna get to 50/50, but of the five renamed teams, only two were charter teams, and "Senators" is a tough nickname to make portable, even in a world with Los Angeles Lakers. The Pilots only played one season, so that was an easy mulligan to take.

    Am I the only one who thinks the new logo is a downgrade? Sometimes, going back to the roots can be a good move. This is not one of those times. The current logo is just about perfect.
