  1. I prefer the flag as well, but I think it would be too cluttered with everything on there.
  2. Drop the flag, keep the skull and crossed swords, add Bucco Bruce’s feathered hat. A true blending of eras.
  3. Anybody else have a bad feeling that all of the teams changing this offseason (Rams, Browns, Falcons, and Bucs) are going to swing too hard in the over simplified direction, á la the Jaguars?
  4. Any chant would have to be “Let’s Get Kraken!” Clap clap clapclapclap. All of the Krakheads, filling the Krakden with this chant will be a sight to see! I am now 100% for this awful name being picked.
  5. I think my biggest gripe with the name Kraken isn't that its a mythological beast with little association to the area or even that it is a non plural team name, but rather it is a singular creature. This would be like naming your hockey team the Tusla Godzilla. How about the Boise Harry Potter? However, I did a little (very little) more research into the name and discovered an English language usage message board discussing if Kraken can be pluralized. The users there cited ancient Norwegian standards, common standards, and the way that would translate into English to determine that Kraken CAN be pluralized as Krakens. They cited uses in more recent SciFi and Fantasy novels as well including one about a Galactic Football League that used Krakens as a team name. Kraken is a nonstarter for me, but I think I could live with Krakens. Go Emeralds!
  6. Is that a new hat as well? Unless my eyes are playing tricks it appears to have a yellow outline instead of white.
  7. With the Chiefs appearing to use a yellow end zone the trend continues. Secondary color yellow teams have now used it 24 times compared to just 5 times using their primary color.
  8. Does this mean that the camo jerseys are gone‽ I'm guessing not, but one can hope.
  9. The only one of those I don't like is Sockeyes. Emeralds is my number one; followed by Sea Lions, Raniers and Cougars in that order. I nice double green set would be awesome.
  10. I did a quick count on the GUD and it looks like teams that use yellow as their secondary color have had yellow end zones in the Super Bowl 23 times, compared to only 5 times using their primary color. The Packers have used green three times and yellow only twice, both of those being the first two Super Bowls. Vikings used purple once and just last year the Rams used blue. All of this means nothing, but I will guess that KC will have a yellow end zone. The 49ers will be red or the Packers green. Either way it’s going to be a beautiful game. I did find it interesting that most end zones end up being the same color as the teams primary, except for the teams that use yellow. A few notable exceptions were the Eagles in SB15 using silver. The Bears using orange in SB20. The Dolphins used orange once, but teal every other time. Giants had red in their first two appearances. Patriots had red end zones in SB31. The Saints had gold end zones.
  11. Based on unis I’d love to see KC vs. Minnesota.
  12. Now is the perfect opportunity for the Rangers to “own” blue caps with red bills, home and away.
  13. Not sure why my driving time post was quoted for this, but OK.
  14. Drove from St. Pete to Orlando 100+ times in the seven years I lived there. Outside of the normal slowdowns between Disney and Universal, I never experienced this famously terrible I-4 traffic. 1.5 hours sounds pretty normal to me.
