  1. You might have seen Oklahoma City in there as well. They were the last team cut in that round of expansion. At the time the CHL Blazers were selling out with 13,479 fans most nights, and among the bid groups that round were the only one to start with a fully funded arena. But the bid failed on a couple of points. The league didn't like their small TV market. The bid group tried to argue it was going to include Tulsa, Wichita, and several other smaller markets (effectively forming a Fox/Bally regional network-sized market like we see today). The bid group also tried to hold a mid-week, midday rally downtown, and frankly it flopped when only a few hundred supporters showed up. The Blazers staff did a great job with their propaganda campaign, convincing fans that the NHL was too expensive.
  2. Some people see the Browning logo. I see a fat man with his hands on his hips and his hair on fire.
  3. Colors aside, my first thought was to compare it to the Sarajevo '84 Olympic logo...
  4. NM... that's what I get for not scrolling back a page...
  5. Apologies if this has been discussed before. I did a brief search but didn't see much. I ran across this image today in a FB group... Notice anything about the Midwest Bank and Trust Company logo? The fonts are very close, and the bank's circle is nearly matched to the Mavs' basketball relative to the M. I tried finding a larger version of the bank logo, but it looks like the bank folded a decade ago. Thoughts? I think the CCSLC has convicted for less than this.
  6. FWIW, Lamar Hunt seriously considered keeping the Texans name when he moved the club to Kansas City.
  7. The location of the star on the TX logo makes me think the club is moving to San Angelo...
  8. Now he's done FC St. Pauli... I suspect more are to come.
  9. I think the Atalanta means more to NCFC fans since that's manager Daniel Farke's face. I meant to mention that in the original post but forgot.
  10. Ben Stokes (@robotcanary on twitter) crossbred Norwich City's badge with every club from Serie A. Given the club's German connections, we're trying to get him to do a Bundesliga set next.
  11. Norwich City released their homes and goal this morning. I think the launch video outpaces the kits themselves at this point, but there is still more to come. Home Short sleeved GK. The sponsor patch on the sleeve is for Best Fiends... Training shirt... Kit launch - full of NCFC heroes of the past...
  12. Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC is getting a white third this year for their 25th anniversary. The home kit has yet to be announced, but they are holding over the away kit from last season. My wife and daughter were over there this week and witnessed them shooting their commercials for the thirds. My wife also reported that the club's main receptionist also handles the club shop duties, and was rather perplexed as to why some Texas woman was on a mission for her husband to acquire some jerseys from a small market second division Scottish club. Mission accomplished though... my son got last season's home (on sale), while I got the away (no homes left in my size). They also went through Perth and stopped in at St. Johnstone's, but the shop was closed. After that I couldn't talk her into hitting up Hibs while they were in Edinburgh. The third... The road, carried over from last season... Last year's home...
  13. I believe the T-Wolves looked at Nashville as well, with Gaylord having a role. There was also a story of a KC Scouts rumor with a WHA team... I want to say either Cleveland or Minnesota. I am away from home and can't check the source at the moment. Bill Veeck was also ready to move the Browns to LA.
  14. Norwich City away... Look kids, no oversized sponsor box!!!
  15. First thing that came to mind... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPXUG8q4jKU
