  1. It appears the Fire have actually extracted themselves from their lease
  2. Trouble is, even if you've got a set of washed big leaguers and AAAA guys, the rest of rosters are guys who couldn't make it as org guys in affiliated ball so it's hard to give a good read of what the overall quality of play is other than being the top of the indy pecking order
  3. I find it hard to believe they really did that. They can't, with a straight face, have pitched themselves as more than indy ball, but more financially stable than usual.
  4. Reference to the NDY statues the tourism folks put up around town a few years ago, but it doesn't quite look right in this application.
  5. Biden's stuff is pretty bad. The Joe tag looks like JO
  6. Fair comp, and I appreciate them being out there as a reminder that NBA teams weren't always massive money generators and used to make decisions like this based on some owner looking at the budget and saying "nah, it'd cost too much to replace a bunch of stuff"
  7. Since the black jerseys get so much use, just making a black with the script Chicago just seems like a fair concession to reality.
  8. Their pace is pretty mindblowing. In the 20k they're walking 6:30 miles.
  9. Obama, Dean before that. The root is the West Wing.
  10. Short of at least 1 deranged billionaire being involved and willing to lose lots of money for a few years, I don't see how any start up 11 man football league could work. Conveniently, the XFL is the creation of a deranged billionaire.
  11. What kills me most is it's not even "way out" Bridgeview is an inner-ring suburb. It's just the worst possible place they could have landed. Their temporary stint in Naperville was probably more accessible. Chicago fans can understand bad management, that location has been their biggest albatross.
  12. This is the logo of an evil company in an action movie
  13. Remove the roof piece and it's basically New Comiskey. Of course, when you go back, the early versions of Camden Yards were more like New Comiskey, too. (seen on page 1 of this thread)
  14. In 1990 the White Sox ended their time at Old Comiskey in new black and white uniforms, replacing the script at the end of the season.
  15. If there's a word for something beyond schadenfreude, the feeling of watching an NFL team going through what the Raiders are is that.
  16. They did 125 way better with the gold MLB patches and "medalions" on the backs of the caps
  17. His originals are the best version UNC argyle uniforms for my money
  18. The NFL isn't about to get into the player development business unless it actually has to. Their interest, through NFL Network, seems pretty straightforward to me: they have a football channel, this league will give them some fresh football content in the off season
  19. Just wasn't into the big D last year
  20. Just really big fans of Marc Maron
  21. UNC brought back Mack Brown because the college football needs to give checks to more ancient men I guess.
  22. Now imagine if the name wasn't galactically stupid. Prairie Dogs? Nah, gotta put a twist on it for no actual reason.
