  1. The scorebug for tonight’s game is going to drive me nuts. Pats in colorrush Blue Giants in away whites with a lot of red On the scorebug, Giants have blue background; Patriots have red
  2. I think I’ve figured out the overall issue between examples and the issues overall. One of the major reasons the Orca is disliked is, when introduced, it was a not-so-subtle nod to the then-ownership group. Of course with the poor management early on, there could be easy animosity developed over time. So now, despite the proper colors returning and a more toned down erosion of the logo remaining, the core purpose of choosing what they chose and their corporate-speak to justify their choice still remains. And for some fans, it’s more a “whatever” thing but for others, that lasting initial impression is still there. As far as examples to help explain why The excuses given now are not as good as they seem, we more have to go into a hypothetical world than the real one because the examples being used so far have more historical legacies for their abstract design and lingering that may not have anything to do with the team nickname: The closest example of a team nickname to “Canucks” would likely be “Yankees”. But let’s imagine for a brief moment that the Yankees were founded when the Canucks were and have had the same identity crisis as the Canucks. And at some point they introduce a logo for the Yankees that consisted of a pigeon, with its wings up stretched into a Y shape. And we are told that the Pigeon choice was because there are larger amounts of pigeons found in New York than in most other places. It’d be insane. Again, this is an EXTREME example of how it looks as an outsider watching the Orca War debate go back and forth. It both makes perfect sense as far as specific design choices with the art style but at the same time the original intent for their choice is part of the logo’s historical fact and it’s disgraceful at the same time. With the Orca there is no easy solution to help satisfy all sides
  3. Wow that is a huge downgrade. Yeah the original was meant to emulate a ticket as NESN was originally marketed as “your ticket to New England sports”. The wavy N is probably meant to invoke a strip of tickets or something but it just looks like a conjoined mess. Sad to see an iconic logo go
  4. I really like New York's logo. It won't take the XFL top spot in my heart over the Las Vegas Outlaws but it's pretty solid. I also really like Dallas as well. Yes it's a masked cowboy look but it works here. Seattle definitely looks like UAB which bothers me. Should definitely not try to even emulate an already-established brand. But overall? Pretty damn solid. Hopefully the uniforms won't be a hot mess.
  5. from that CBS article, I found this little snippet So there's still hope for Bucfan and Republic to still get in!
  6. I would’ve thought the Rays have the most unbreakable lease. Regardless, good for the Fire to be able to explore other options and possibly get closer to their city
  7. I think they mean on the mothership
  8. (Can’t believe this hasn’t been said yet) The Tampa Bay Rays of Montreal as long as MLB continues to potentially allow stupid namings this joke will never die
  9. new helmet rules for the league next year
  10. It also isn’t a direct reference as the “waves” start of light and then become waves at the bottom. If meant to emulate the flag or arms as posted, one would think it would’ve started at the top of the numbers rather than halfway down. if the intent was to reference the flag or arms, actually reference the flag and not start halfway down. there is a massive disconnect between your corporate-speak as to the meaning and the Canucks’ corporate speak which comes off as the official meaning behind the design and that’s what people will be referring to
  11. Congrats to the Blues. Just watching them play tonight it feels like they just wanted it more. The B’s passes have been sloppy, they’ve missed the puck and basic moves to get things set. Meanwhile the Blues just go go go go go and it’s paying off. Disappointing for the Bruins. But congrats again to the Blues! Hell of a series.
  12. i really hate how at a quick glance, it looks like there were 4 black vs white games. MLS feels so devoid of color and uniqueness as far as kits go. it's sad especially when we see that graphic of the MLS colors and graphics how many unique color matchups there could be.
