  1. There is "discussion" and then there is what's been going on in this thread. You're right, it is a farce, but it's not because we're shutting down Canucks Talk Radio. As someone stated about 4300 Canucks posts ago, this bit has become the new Clevejacked. This has been page after page of tail-chasing and derailing the thread. Maybe if some of you hadn't shown such blatant disregard for Glenn's original warning, we wouldn't have gotten here, but that hasn't been the case. Trust me when I say this, the very best bet you can make right now is to drop the matter and move on. We all get where you stand on the changes to the Canucks look. You've made your point. What's left to say?

  3. I wouldn't be so sure about that. Sure, we'd lose good stuff like....ok, I'm thinking....we'd lose....yeah, what good stuff would we lose exactly if NYC became an independent state? (It's a joke, son. No need for a 43 paragraph dissertation on the greatness of New York City or the economic impact or why it's a good idea, etc., etc. Just let it sit there and be the joke I intended it to be, OK? Thanks.)
  4. Let it be written that on this day in this place the M-XII hereby declares Still MIGHTY a Post of the Day winner extraordinary and plenipotentiary. Etc., and so forth. The Majestic XII have spoken.
  5. Fair enough, but my avatar isn't talking to anyone.

  7. And...I'm going to throw this in for everyone as part of "boards etiquette." There's no need to take shots at someone for making a mistake. Politely pointing out the problem is the preferable and recommended response. Being one of the "cool kids" does not give you carte blanche to say whatever the hell you want. When it comes to issues like not clipping a quote, be nice or be quiet. We've all made mistakes here. No good comes from piling on.
  8. The best thing you can do right now is drop the matter. In fact, I'm strongly suggesting you do just that. It's over and done. Move on. If you have any forum etiquette questions, feel free to ask. I'll be happy to help.

  10. I think the Bears jerseys are solid and the helmet was OK, but the rest of the uniform didn't do much for me.
  11. And what would that distinction be? Call it what you want, it's still uglier than .
  12. Apologies for running way late this week. Real life got in the way. Since we're so late, let's dispense with the pleasantries and get right to the lists. As always, the lists are solely my opinion. Your opinion may (and probably will) be different than mine. That's fine. Keep the conversation civil and the rest will take care of itself. Best: 1. Raiders - Colts: Two stone cold classic looks. It doesn't get any better. Every game should look this good. 2. NY Giants - Washington: This one probably gets the top spot in most weeks, but not this one. Another great match up of two classic looks. 3. Cowboys - Saints: Put the Saints in gold pants and this one is in the running for the top spot. That said, it's another great looking match up. 4. Eagles - Packers: You know it's a strong week when this game is number four on the list. 5. Bengals - Steelers: A rare Bengals appearance on the best list. I thought the CR uniforms looked pretty good matched up against the Steelers. There's still work to be done, but this Bengals look is the best Bengals look. Needed black on the socks. Worst: 1. Seahawks - Cardinals: A whole lotta ugly going on here. The Cardinals have a great helmet. That's something, I guess. 2. Browns - Ravens: This could have been this week's "Not the worst looking game I've ever seen", but the Ravens ruined it with the monochrome purple. Holy hell, what a mess. 3. Jaguars - Broncos: What happens when two good color schemes are very poorly executed? This does. That's all for this week. I'm headed out of town on Monday so the lists may be late again, but we'll do it all again sometime next week. Thanks for taking a look.
  13. I gave it my best shot based on what little I know about how it works. As Ice_Cap pointed out, most of the mods have no idea how the forums software and coding works. You might try asking one of the admins about it. But like I said, those numbers don't really mean anything in the first place. Sure, it's kinda cool to "win the day" or see yourself on the weekly leader board, but other than that, it does exactly nothing for your actual reputation around here. Frankly, I wish it were called something else because calling it "reputation" gives it way more importance than it actually has. Anyway, if we can help with anything else, don't hesitate to ask. Wish we could have given you a better answer.
  14. Honestly, it’s not worth worrying about. The numbers are meaningless. Did you get all 11 likes in a 24 hour period? If not, then it’s not going to show up. For example, if 6 likes were before midnight and 5 were after midnight, the likes will be spread over the two days.
  15. The reputation thing is based on liked posts. 11 might get you on the daily list, but you are not coming close to the weekly or overall list with that number. Usually, the weekly list leader has between 80-120 (or more) likes on a post or posts. With regard to the overall - career list, if you will - you're currently at 308. To give you an example, my "career" number is 5,671 and I'm not even in shouting distance of the top 10 or whatever it is. Basically, to get where you looking to get, keep posting good stuff, I guess.
  16. Was the game televised, by chance? I ask because in Ohio the OHSAA doesn't allow live TV broadcasts of football on Fridays. Only radio. As a result, the local FOX Sports affiliate set up a schedule of Thursday night games that are televised live.
  17. Interesting. People like me who grew up in the era of pullovers tend to not like them very much. Some teams pulled it off; A's, Pirates, Reds, and a couple others, but for the most part, 70's baseball uniforms were pretty bad - in my opinion.
  18. Preach, brother. Oh, and for all of you "agists" (relax DG, I'm kidding. I don't really think you or anyone else is an agist.) who claim people like me are being too "prescriptive" and "just want things like they were when we were young", Ice Cap and I are about 26 years apart in age. He wasn't alive when NFL teams actually wore sleeves which kinda kills the "wants it to look how it did when he was young" bit. Some things just look better without regard to when they were worn. It's the "Blue Pinstriped Suit Corollary." No more, no less.
  19. There was a player who wore the number 0 for a time back in the early 70's. I'm almost positive he played for the Saints, but that was damned near 50 years ago and I was about 9 or 10 when I saw the picture. EDIT: No, I'm not thinking of George Plimpton and that stunt he did with the Lions when he wore 0. It was an actual player. Trying to find the pic. And here he is. Saints DB Obert Logan. There were two other players in NFL history who wore 0, but this is the guy I was remembering.
  20. Browns CR jersey is pretty solid. The Rams don't look quite awful enough to be on a worst list. They're as close to the line as you can get, but not over it.
