  1. Yeah, one of the big stories is that it appears the David Braley is set to sell the Argos to MLSE as part of their effort to renovate BMO stadium. Also apparently because it might help acquire an NFL franchise for Toronto, but come on. The Earth will be swallowed up by the sun as it exhausts the last of it's hydrogen reserves before Toronto gets an NFL franchise...
  2. On the international scale? No. Local clubs? Oh for sure. You have to do something on a cold winter's night. TSN had a Top Ten greatest curling plays show on some time ago and one of the plays they picked was from the 1960s. Remarkable how much the game has changed. I can't remember the actual play because I was transfixed by the guy throwing the rock. Back then they used the straw brooms instead of the push brooms of now. They wore heavy knit button-up sweaters and wool tams! And I kid you not, the guy throwing the rock had a lit cigarette in his mouth! The only reason I even bring this up is that I believe (though I could be wrong) the Norwegian team in 2010 introduced those pants as a type of retro uniform honouring Norwegian teams from the '70s...
  3. Well it might seem a tad early but to start one, but it's been a unusually busy off-season, quarterbacks are changing teams, Ottawa is starting play this season, two new stadiums, the Argonauts might join the MLSE fold, the season schedule is coming out tomorrow, free agency is heating up.... ...oh and Arland Bruce said something stupid about Michael Sam and has probably played his last down of Canadian Football....
  4. I think the primary reason for this is simply because the championship was re-named the Super Bowl. Indeed. The Stanley Cup has always been the Stanley Cup (and even predates the NHL...hell it even predates professional hockey), the World Series has always been the World Series, and the NBA Championship will always lack any sort of special name. Of course the NHL/WHA merger wasn't a true merger and is basically regarded as an expansion with none of the WHA records counting, unlike the NFL/AFL merger.
  5. Third, the Seattle Metropolitans won the Stanley Cup in 1917...
  6. They should have gone with Teenage Head, The Diodes and Luba....
  7. This could also go under unpopular opinions... It's a maple leaf with the words "MAPLE LEAFS" in it. I suppose for those who might think that it's actually an oak leaf...
  8. Oh yes you can, which takes us back to Canada's Olympic Hockey jerseys....
  9. Here is Zach Parise with the US Olympic Team uniform... Insert jokes about ugly Christmas sweaters knitted by your great-aunt here....
  10. ...and here I was thinking it was going about misspellings...
  11. Yeah, i'm pretty sure anyone who follows the league noticed...
  12. I guess I'm going in the opposite direction with regards to the NFL. I don't think I could ever be a fan or a have a rooting interest, and when the CFL season is on, the league may as well not exist. However I have noticed the quality of entertainment with the games has improved and I see some definite CFL influences seeping into the American version. The 10-7 snooze fests seem to be much fewer and farther between so I've pretty much ended my kneejerk bashing of the NFL for being brain sapping dull. I can see myself perhaps one day moving up to casual viewing when nothing else is on....
  13. Wait a minute...Hamilton is a mud hut town and Saskatoon, Orlando, Kansas City, Cincinnati are ripe for expansion? What a moron...
  14. Oh my god people, what is the matter with you? Did your parents ban you from watching cartoons as kids?
  15. Kinda of weird to be celebrating a 40th anniversary for a team that was playing for just a little more than half that time...
  16. Since I'm guessing that the FC in a lot of the logos doesn't stand Fasketball Club, I guess the premise is that the NBA teams are reimagined as European soccer teams.
  17. They could, but the man is normally a right winger that can play centre on occasion and we're just too stacked in those positions for him to crack the lineup...
  18. I'm hoping that this thread produces something more than wild speculation and wishful thinking. We don't always get what we want.... (And for your idea. God no. Death to roundels.)
  19. I can't resist anymore, I have to do this.... Your welcome.
  20. That is just dumb, doesn't look like a "M" (unless you are only supposed to look at the outlines, then, well it stays dumb). For the Montreal Canadians, the CH logo stands for Canadiens du Hockey, it only makes sense for the Expos to follow suit. It looks like the 'e' is superimposed on a 'd'. The Montreal Olympic logo had some "M" trouble as well, which in that case had an extra loop... The Expos logo was probably created by some pot smoking hippy at some ad agency who promptly forgot why he did it...
  21. Quad City On of my favourite modifications, the Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights... Oh in the Devils category, lets not forget Utica...
  22. And yet only slightly more stupid than the parent club's "elb". It was an "edb" as in expos du baseball....
  23. The State of Michigan. Don't see it, I thought it looked more like Ron Burgundy's meaning of San Diego. Looks like a mitten.
