  1. Awful. I'm aware Reebok is using script instead of logo... but I still hate it. Looks bad on the helmets, and its going to look bad on the jerseys.
  2. It might make it worthwhile if Nanaimo could move the BCHL Clippers up to the WHL. We hear rumours about it every few years...but it could never happen without a team in Victoria. One trip to the Island, two games. I was reading Patrick King's article on Sportsnet talking about how the league would much prefer having two teams on the island as opposed to one. Still, they could at least make it a "two game trip" location. I know in the AJHL when teams go up to Fort McMurray and Grande Prairie, it's almost always a back-to-back game with them. Smaller league, shorter travel, but same concept.
  3. While we're on the topic of Flames AHL team, I still wish the Oilers would have kept their AHL franchise in Edmonton instead of the Oil Kings. I love the WHL, but I could still have seen a lot more people going out to support Oilers prospects than the Oil Kings.
  4. It's too bad it didn't work out in Chilliwack. They had fantastic support for a Jr A team there, and it seemed like things started well in the dub.
  5. Actually, it's nothing like that. Nothing at all. To me, it's a lot like that. It's bothering someone because they bought a cheaper product that still gets the job done. As in, "I overpaid, so everyone else should too. And if anyone finds a way to get a similar product for less money, then I'm going to be jealous." Wouldn't it be more like the Lexus owner being peeved at the Toyota owner who threw Lexus emblems on his car?
  6. There's always some beauty stuff that never seems to make it to the A's - online, or even the one time I was in the Bay Area - tough to find anything that isn't a generic HEY LOOK WE'RE THE A'S
  7. Am I the only one that finds it really weird they unveil brand new jerseys and a logo mid-season, yet they can't even wear it until next year?
  8. They made a few mistakes of that nature. Not a visual one, but "... from the Florida Panthers, #63 Tyler Ennis!"
  9. On the number topic, I'm not saying every number above 50 is a bad number, I just think there's a lot of numbers that don't look right in baseball. 88 is one of them, in my mind.
  10. I'm aware of what he did. That doesn't excuse what a horrible number 88 is for baseball.
  11. For the CoolBase/doubleknit nerds out there (and I know there's a lot of you), it looks like the ones being worn today are of the doubleknit variety...
  12. I hope Outman never sees the light of day on the roster with that number.
  13. First glimpse of the A's yellow alts, as tweeted by @JaneMLB http://twitpic.com/3tyrzv
  14. Hate to burst any bubbles, but those catalogs are somewhat speculative. In past years, there's been a few Reebok catalog changes (as in, a blank spot where the jersey should be shown, suggesting a change for the next season) that haven't come to fruition. It means they certainly are being talked about, but basically anything being discussed ends up that way in the catalog.
  15. Reading this thread... I get the feeling a lot of people think the Buffalo/Pittsburgh outdoor game was the first time the NHL ventured outside. I know the Winter Classic and Heritage Classic are different things, and the NHL certainly likes to keep it that way, but let's not forget it was the Oilers that opened the floodgates to the outdoor game (NHL-wise).
  16. At least they were all white with gold trim. Gold... copper... close enough. This looked bad the few times it happened... But this was a thing of beauty...
  17. The Oil Kings have to lead the CHL in one-off jerseys, especially in their short existence.
  18. I applaud the effort of trying to bring the Whalers look back... but I really liked what the Wolfpack had going, personally.
  19. That was one of my favourite jerseys in the dub.
  20. That's because you have a replica.
  21. I caught that too on the news the other day, and figured I really should look into it more, but then I didn't bother. I don't like it... well, I'm not a fan of the script on the front as it is, and now this just makes it look even weirder. Love the template, just wish it was the old Canes logo instead.
  22. I think I prefer it not to be team colour, actually.
  23. The Oilers official home jersey is the retro blue and orange. The official alternate is the navy blue. The official away is the white. The Oil debuted the retro as an alternate, and it was so popular, they decided to switch it with the navy. They still wear the navy during the pre-season probably because they feel it's "less special" and want to save the retro for the regular season only. I don't see how that is so confusing.. who cares what they wear in the pre-season?
