    All true, but the Patriots were, to quote my BASS colleague Ice_Cap, "the red-headed stepchild of Boston sports." Pats fans like Bill Simmons claiming that, in Boston, the team was as popular as the Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins back then is some serious revisionist history. Pats fans weren't "tortured" before the dynasty, they were indifferent.

    Much like the preseason roster, the designers need to earn their stripes.

    You're a mind reader now? By "worst of Boston fans" I meant exactly that. The majority of the Boston fans here are perfectly reasonable fans. A small minority are insufferable ass-holes. It's up to you to figure out which group you want to belong to.

    OKC's look okay but I think it's the worst of the now-three orange jerseys they've had in the past decade. Too many light colors at once, I think it needs the old navy to provide balance. (Agree on the Suns, though I've always liked their purple or black bases anyway.)

    Unless they go back to Bucco Bruce, I don't think Tampa Bay needs to really reinvent the wheel. 2 simple changes I believe could make it a very nice look. Maybe simplify the shoulders a bit too but I don't think these are as far off as many would think.

    From what I was told about the XFL overtime, it's basically like a shoot out in the NHL or soccer except football. I prefer the OT in college football than the NFL.

    The roads desperately need that blue stripe, the homes have never looked better. Should bring back the footprint back too, maybe confine it to the roads. The state-flag-inspired patch looks great on the homes but doesn't contrast as well on the road whites.

    Her philosophy of individual property rights isn't really offensive. It's more or less reality. People who escaped communism in Russia are big fans of Ayn Rand for some reason. I mean, if you believe in trademarks and copyright and other individual/personal property rights, then Ayn Rand is not wrong. Voting in elections for your own self-interests is a key part of democracy, and this self-interest and self-determination are key points of Rand's writings. Thinking people won't be selfish or protective of their own property is alternate-reality stuff. But I'm sure you know more because you watch John Oliver. Samantha Bee must be like a god to you. Thanks for "cleaning up" John Oliver for this political message board. Much needed.

    No, it isn't. A lesser team can win three games out of five or four games out of seven against a superior team. But a lesser team cannot finish above a superior team in the division standings over an 82-game schedule. Anyway, let us note that the last several NBA Finals have been contested between divisional champions; I think you have to go back to 2011 to find a Finals involving a non-divisional-champion (Jason Kidd's Mavericks). Those lower-seeded teams are just making up the numbers. Get 'em out of there! Playoffs are great, but not when they are so bloated that they involve more than half the league. Qualifying for the playoffs should be a privilege reserved only for the elite teams that have earned it over the long season. Nothing beats the baseball postseason through 1993, which was a competition solely amongst champions. Anyway, I have already said that I understand that this will never happen in the NBA because it would make the playoffs much shorter. But this sort of playoff format would be far more exciting.

    So I'm not a big fan of this supposed 25th season template from Adidas, given that no MLS team has ever worn the big shoulder stripes before. That said, I liked @MJWalker45's suggestion of just having '90s fauxbacks and @njdevs7's suggestion of only giving the big shoulder stripes to the inaugural MLS teams. Therefore, here are my attempts to make the wacky '90s MLS jerseys more palatable! I'm going out of town for a while, so I wanted to put this out there, but please feel free to leave suggestions and I might try them out when I get back. ------ Starting with the Colorado Rapids, based on the '96 jersey and the Colorado license plate:

    I wouldn't argue that. The Patriots of the 70's won 66 games in the entire decade with just two playoff appearances, both losses. That's fewer than the Bengals (74), Colts (73, won the 1970 Super Bowl), and Broncos (75, plus a Super Bowl appearance). At best they were 7th.

    The reseed idea is nice in theory but the travel absolutely wrecks it, so that's good news that it's being reconsidered. Take the current standings and you could very easily have a team do something like eight flights between Philly/Boston and Los Angeles over the span of a month. I think that's too much, and the neverending angst over conference imbalance is a little much, anyway.

    The idea on the Main 3 Uniforms is a nice take on traditional Browns, but the Cream coloring just muddles it up. Also, the big wordmark on the front should be shrunken to a size similar to their 1999-2014 Uniform/Color Rush, or be removed completely. Along with those, why is the Legend "Throwback" Uniform not a Throwback Uniform? The purpose of a Throwback is to have an exact replica of a previous Uniform, not to change it up and call it a "Throwback." And finally, remove the piping. That was a 2003 trend that should have died in 2004.

    I’m cautiously optimistic about the hiring of Mike McCarthy. I want to see how he fills out the rest of his coaching staff, but so far it looks promising. Definitely an upgrade over Garrett. EDIT: We’re keeping Kellen! As long as this offense stays aggressive, we’ll be very good next season.

    Thanks! Gray was something I wanted to eliminate because it clouded up the classic red, white, and blue look. So would you suggest I eliminate the collar all together? Because that would be an easy fix. Also, yeah I can send the template. I'll just send you a message real quick. Thanks! I actually chose navy for a few reasons: 1) The helmet logo and stripes have been navy since 1981. 2) The most important factor was that I thought a dark blue and a light gray contrasted better than a light blue and a light gray.

    Sean Payton’s tears make me feel so good. In 2009, in the NFC championship game, this particular piece of human garbage… ...offered the players on the New Orleans defense cold hard cash to take multiple cheap shots at the Vikings’ quarterback’s ankles and knees. Which they gleefully did (and bragged about it after the game), while the refs stood by with their thumbs and whistles stuffed up their asses. Want to argue? You can argue with the NFL’s investigative findings and this video… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPZCVCZNc50&t=78s This dirty program was abetted and condoned by this d-bag… ...for which he and Greg “scumbag” Williams were each was suspended by the NFL. The fact that Williams was let back in at all is criminal. As far as I’m concerned, the Saints can never have enough painfully heartbreaking playoff losses. Each one is well deserved, and the fact that they’ve had three in a row jammed down their throats, and two of those three have been handed to them courtesy of the Vikings, just warms my heart. As long as Payton is still in charge of that team, I’ll keep hating them.

    And now for Part 2 of my full-scale NCAA Division I realignment. A couple of notes before we dive right in (all conferences in alphabetical order): In Part 1, I got rid of the Big 12 and Conference USA. To take this further for the all-sport realignment, we are also getting rid of the Atlantic 10, Atlantic Sun, and Western Athletic Conferences. All three of these conferences have a pretty wide geographic spread (especially the WAC and A-Sun), and there are opportunities to create new rivalries and rekindle old ones in larger conferences. One more school not already scheduled for transition moves up from D-II in this scenario: the University of Missouri, St. Louis (joining the Horizon League) All told, 84 of the proposed 325 Division I schools change conferences (nearly a quarter of the total number of schools). Now, onto the changes! AMERICA EAST CONFERENCE Albany, Binghamton, Maine, New Hampshire, Northeastern, Rhode Island, Stony Brook, UMass-Lowell, Vermont Loses Hartford (Northeast) and UMBC (CAA), gains Northeastern (CAA) and Rhode Island (A-10).

ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE Atlantic Division: Boston College, Clemson, Florida State, Louisville, Maryland, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Wake Forest Coastal Division: Duke, Georgia Tech, Miami, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia Retains all fifteen conference members, adds Maryland back into the conference from the Big Ten and West Virginia from the Big 12. Notre Dame competes as an FBS independent at the same level as the Power Four conferences, maintaining a partial schedule of ACC schools. BIG EAST CONFERENCE Gavitt Division: Connecticut, George Washington, Georgetown, Massachusetts, Providence, Saint Joseph’s, Seton Hall, St. John’s, Villanova Tranghese Division: Butler, Creighton, Dayton, DePaul, Detroit Mercy, Duquesne, Marquette, Saint Louis, Xavier The Big East is the landing spot for a large share of former A-10 members (Dayton, Duquesne, George Washington, Massachusetts, Saint Joseph’s, Saint Louis) and adds one from the Horizon League (Detroit Mercy) to its lineup of eleven members. Becomes a predominantly Catholic non-football superconference in the process. Four schools (Connecticut, Duquesne, Massachusetts and Villanova) are members of the Eastern Football Alliance, with UConn and UMass in the Yankee Division and Duquesne and Villanova in the Colonial Division. Two schools (Butler and Dayton) are members of the Continental Football Alliance, both are in the Pioneer Division.

    Very much like the Brewers, if the Rams go with navy and athletic gold, it will be a great improvement over the current look. However, just like the Brewers, and maybe even more so, going with navy over royal is the wrong choice. I'm not sure how the southern California sunshine will look in the new stadium but royal looks better in sunlight than navy.

    When designing a product like this, though, there are other considerations. Most Dallas Stars fans don’t care about the Minnesota North Stars, what they accomplished, or the place they’re from. Creating something that connected with people from Texas and people who are Stars fans, first and foremost, was much more important. Using a classic North Stars jersey also presents a problem with trying to decide what goes on the front. Do you use the 90s/00s logo (that was worn by both teams) and slap it on a 70s/80s uniform? Do you put a Texans-inspired logo on a 70s/80s uniform? Do you create a D mark that looks like the North Stars’ logo? I think you could pull it off in the right hands, but the renewed focus on authenticity the past two years has been well-received following the faux, anachronistic, and merchandising-driven approach of the past decade. Another consideration is creating a game that makes sense on both sides. One team wearing a 40s/50s uniform and the other wearing a 70s/80s look makes the presentation very odd, and it makes branding the game as a cohesive, singular event difficult. Since Nashville has no classic NHL history to pull from, going back to the origin of pro hockey in the city made sense. Dallas, while different in that they were relocated from another city, had a very similar “origin of Texas hockey” idea in their cupboard, so it made for great cohesion between the two teams and cities, just as last year’s “first cup” concept set up a nice link between both clubs.
