  1. You realize you're responding to a pre-playoff post, yeah?
  2. How is that "the thing"? If they did nothing, you would be saying that they aren't doing anything to connect with their fanbase. You can't outright dismiss something because it hasn't moved the needle in a quarter of the season. If you "know this is true" because of the numbers, then you also know that the numbers have nowhere to go but up. Things like this is how you make that happen.
  3. Which would be good for call-ups but I'm pretty sure the AHL is still a bus league. (Which is why it's amazing Boise is even being considered.)
  4. As a general question regarding these jerseys, do any of these schools sell them?
  5. Is there an AAF rulebook somewhere? After that San Antonio interception, the defender who made the pick was never touched. Wouldn't the ball still be live and become a touchback or something after he just chucks it out of the endzone?
  6. What a weird picture pull (only in that I know exactly where that is in the north end of Seattle.)
  7. The auctions for them would appear to say otherwise https://auction.chl.ca/iSynApp/allAuction.action?sid=1100241&sort=bidcount_desc&rc=20&pgmode1=knights&pgmode2=profile&pgmode3=&pgcust3=teamName
  8. Oof, those collars. However, I would gladly take an authentic/GI/GW of each to add to the collection.
  9. If nothing else, it leaves open an opportunity to name the actual field something else. Niehaus Field at T-Mobile Park, for example. Not saying that's a good idea but the door is now open.
  10. It's not. At all. And that seam below the neck is ridiculous.
  11. Seems weird to me to have such a large arm stripe and put the number above it. I know it's commonplace but there it really sticks out.
  12. And a small-ish rink, to boot. Right size for the BCHL, would be smallest by a mile in the US Division of the WHL. Only thing it has going for it besides fan support is location.
  13. I can kind of understand it. While the team may bring in more money, there may be other factors involved in their worth. One thing right away I can think of is that London can host a Memorial Cup while Seattle will likely never be able to. Lease agreements, community impact, media coverage, etc., might also play a role.
  14. If you believe the numbers from the lawsuit and TSN, the difference is about $18 million (Knights 23M, TBirds 5M). Contextually, that is a lot but overall there's not much of a value differential there. Also, there is a difference between value and revenue. London generated 6.2 million in 15-16 while Seattle had 7.3 million (both figures in Canadian dollars) Edit: That's not to say anything about the name or ownership. Just that once you get below the big cities and the teams owned by NHL teams, there's not much difference among the CHL teams.
  15. In a weird way, it does make sense. If you are numbering the team in order but starting with the forwards and working your way back, the 19th player would be the goaltender (12F, 6D).
  16. Semi-off topic: The St Elizabeth Arena looks great but why are the Mystics moving there to share space with the Go-Go? The Mystics averaged 7000+ and are now going to a building that seats a little over half that? I guess business-wise it must make sense but initially, it doesn't.
  17. Literally the same thing I said to the wife after that call for nudging Prescott. Why not flop if it'll get you 15? Same as punters do but it is going to be much more egregious.
  18. There has to be a way for a logical auto-posting of stories from the Mothership. Right now there are two posts in Sports Logos regarding the Sharks new jersey. There is one for the leak and one for the reveal. I realize why there are 2 but having them separate divides the discussion (not to mention that talk is also happening in the NHL 2018-19 thread). Is there a way to not post every logo story to the boards or a way to auto-merge similar topics?
  19. Been in and out of this one a couple of times. It's been a couple decades but I do remember the departure area being much better than the arrival area.
  20. I agree. However, are they the same colors? Granted, I've never seen the Flyers live, but I've always thought the Tigers used a darker shade of orange.
  21. It's just a smidge confusing when the all-star jersey sponsor is the same as a club sponsor. Context is everything but when first looking at these pictures, I assumed they were alternate jerseys for MN United
