  1. I really like this concept. I prefer fancy scripts of the team's nickname on home unis, but this does work do to the nature of the nickname. Your choice of color (cream?) for the road unis works really well with the purple and orange. Nice job. (First thought when I saw the post title was the Astros hitting the field with "Space Truckin'" blaring from the PA system.)
  2. Simple. Old school. Very nice. I would think a thin outline of navy would help your problem. It does need something.
  3. Two always stick out in my mind, though I know there are others certainly worthy that I've seen. 1989 (77th) Grey Cup - Saskatchewan 43, Hamilton 40 Just a great football game. 1998 Game 2 Stanley Cup Finals - Detroit 5, Washington 4 OT (saw in person) Had the Caps won this game, I think the series would have gone seven games.
  4. Oh sweet mama! Yes, I'm a fanboy of your work, but this is most excellent. The only thing I don't like is the gradient like stripes on the 3rd at the top. The first has a very Chicago Sting appeal to it that I really like. Excellent set.
  5. Yes we would. It's simple - if you keep beating everyone in your way and make it to the title game, you are one of the top two teams in the country that year. With a "one-and-done" system, I am never convinced we get the best two teams in championships. Two teams could play each other ten times with one team winning nine of them. But that odd tenth time gets rolled on the real game day, and you have an upset. However, we are both agreed on a playoff system. If the best two teams can't beat other teams, that's just the way it is. They had their chance to prove it. Rather see two teams that weren't supposed to be there prove they belong. And like McCall said, no matter who the best two teams are, deciding the championship with games is far, far better than a damn computer.
  6. Why? At that point, there's really no point to the BCS. And once again, I'd like to point out that without a playoff system, we'll never know if the top two teams are really the two best teams. Not sure we would get the two BEST teams with a playoff system, but certainly it would give the opportunity for other teams that aren't seen as stylish or hyped (blown) by the media to show what they are really all about. But you are absolutely CORRECT. We will never know who is good enough to make the cut. TCU beating Wisconsin last year in the Rose Bowl to me was proof that it's time to let more than just the two highest ranked teams in. Hell, the basketball tournament is expanding more! Why does this BCS have to continue with football? Money. I knew the answer. Still doesn't stop me from bitching about it.

  8. Especially from the Airport. From KPIT to the WVU campus is maybe 45mins tops. How fast are you driving? I live 30-40 minutes south of the airport in Pittsburgh and I'm still another 45 minutes at least from Morgantown. And yes, I am in direct line between the two. I still wouldn't call Morgantown isolated though. Many of the major colleges are a good distance away from a highly populated cities with airports.
  9. "The Pontiac Pussycats" for the Detroit Lions during their Silverdome days.
  10. I believe it's supposed to be Astro Boy's head.
  11. That Americans work up is a thing of beauty. That's the Discrim style that we know and love! (Well, I do.) The sleeve stripes and the shoulder patch are what does it for me. I love the switch of stars and stripes from one to the other. Very cool stuff there. As for the 67's, I like the "67's" logo. I think the "Ottawa" wordmark would look better without the 67 in the O. I like the home and away though, seemingly influence by Aussie rules (to my eyes at least).
  12. I think the yellow is a little too bright. And not digging the "FLA" shoulder logo. That said, I think it's a strong concept. I like the move to look like their original jerseys.
  13. $1.5M vs $535K. They save almost a million right there. Which is fine if you have no intention of actually playing him. Having watched Curtis in both Calgary and Anaheim, I question his usefulness even as a backup. It was mentioned by a hockey writer that now all three options in goal for Tampa are UFA's at the end of the season. This way they can make a clean start in goal during the summer.
  14. Wow! Was beginning to think I was the only one with this opinion.
