  1. The Phils should have stuck with the Helvetica numbers. Much more legible than what they use now. And the burgundy, miss that too, of course.
  2. Much like the Rams, a classic good-uniform-bad-logo team. I voted for the first one. Li'l feller.
  3. Yeah, that's two too many; the Senators should always be in black sweaters, and the Hurricanes should come up with anything else.
  4. Ehh, cuts too close to the Maple Leafs down the road. If you have the Leafs in white numbers on dark royal, the Sabres in gold numbers on dark royal, and the Blues in gold/navy/white triple-layer numbers on a lighter shade of blue, you'd have a nice separation, I think.
  5. There you go. But lose the white outlines on the numbers. More than enough contrast between blue and gold, it'd look much sharper.
  6. That costs money. They're doing this to make money.
  7. Opens up a window to fix the quite inspired but quite flawed logo.
  8. TSN is down a guy with Cuthbert moving to Rogers, wonder if he'd want to pick up the Toronto/Ottawa job.
  9. Wow, what a surprise, another great "analytics-minded" organization is really just being cheap. Forslund was wasted on Raleigh anyway; no one watches Hurricanes games and the other guy is a dolt. It'd be funny if he went to Tampa Bay, following Rick Peckham there as he did in Hartford.
  10. The Athletic already did their Thoughtful Examination piece last week, which, read between the lines, is a demand to change the name. That's why I'm stuck defending the Redskins, because for all the "oh but the Blackhawks do it respectfully" talk, we know in our hearts it's give an inch, take a mile, and I don't want them involved with a team I actually like.
  11. They're going after the Blackhawks next. They're feelin' themselves too much not to now.
  12. The stadium's name will change before the Redskins do.
  13. Crosby Field and the Agreed Monster, autocorrect is really taking batting practice on page 9 here
  14. The key to understanding the New Orleans accent is that it's a closer cousin to the old Brooklyn accent than to any southern accent. Anyway, the sparkle helmet looks neat, but that defeats the purpose of settling on a unified shade of gold, unless they're going to have sparkly numbers and pants, too.
  15. It's nearly the same uniform design. The Maple Wings of its time. Of course, it endured beyond the '67 Leafs set and became a classic in its own right, but they didn't really hide their brushstrokes here.
  16. The truth is that they wanted to look like the Maple Leafs but had to add an extra color. I've always picked up a "western" vibe from the old Sabres stuff, too, but I wouldn't go any darker than dark royal.
  17. Cam Newton probably deserved a better contract but he also probably shouldn't have stood around with his thumb up his ass instead of diving on the ball four years ago. The extent to which his blackness contributed to how that play has stained him for life is up for discussion but you know how this league thinks at the management level.
  18. Absolutely. You'd confuse the Rockies with the White Sox.
  19. There is truly nothing new under the #FDB813.
  20. The Canucks were red-orange, yellow, and black because it was the '70s and that was the kind of thing you did back then, but then a new uniform manufacturer didn't make that same reddish-orange dye, so they had to switch to regular red. Maybe there's something Canadian about that.
  21. Yeah, I like that a lot better because it reads clearly as southwestern without the Totally '90s vibes of teal and purple.
  22. It's kind of a typical CCSLC thing to poke into a binary argument with a third choice (ball-in-glove vs. barley? no, the best is the Motre Bame), but both primary D-Backs sets are bad and the true path forward is brick red and turquoise.
