  1. That is subtle but brilliant, and they should absolutely do that from this point on. Were it not for Little, we would have been watching the Birmingham Broncos since 1968.
  2. Having worked in media relations for multiple professional organizations, once hospice is entered, it is an indication that preparations, memorials, tributes, etc should be readied, as they could be needed at a few hours notice. The situation is, indeed terrible, however it's part of being a professional organization. At one point the owner for one of the teams for which I have worked passed away. It was not an unexpected passing, and the structure of the memorials and tributes, in-stadium reminders, etc, were already determined. I have no doubt there will be tributes tomorrow, however I was hoping that someone who is in the loop might have some insight as to the specifics.
  3. As he has been in hospice for a few weeks, my assumption would be that they were proactively working on something appropriate.
  4. Greetings all Has anyone seen any information regarding a potential memorial patch/sticker for Floyd Little on Sunday? If so, please share information/photos here.

  6. It's a $19 sublimated truck-stop gift shop jersey. Very disappointed. Change for the sake of... well... for no reason really.
  7. I attend only a few games per year, however because of travel, they are generally different teams in different cities, and in no other stadium do I see more throwback jerseys than in Denver. Elway, Little, Gradishar, Atwater, Davis, Mecklenburg etc... are absolutely EVERYWHERE. This gives a lot of weight to the argument that at least the newer uniform/jersey is not classic, as I dare say that the majority of Broncos fans prefer the Orange Crush version. Perhaps the orange version of the modern jersey is a bit more acceptable to the fans in general, but orange definitely is the way to go. There are also (again, just my observation) a larger number of merch items depicting the old logo than I see in other cities. My guess would be in the 30-35% vintage range. That's quite high compared to a lot of other towns. Personally I have never worn a "new" uniform jersey to a game. Everything is from the Orange Crush era or a throwback.
  8. It is with a broad smile and great pride I present a late 70's Bengals jersey of (wait for it....)Pat McInally. Compliments of a Goodwill in KY.
  9. Actually the logo for the youth club, when altered to the new team colors is pretty sharp. (except for the gradient)
  10. The first reports showed a royal blue, black and white version of the logo shown below. WJBC later showed a version of the logo in the new team colors, which were announced as a "LA Kings Style" purple, black, white. Later in the afternoon I found of this was on Pantagraph.com and they showed this as the new logo. It would appear that this is the "final" logo of the day.
  11. I believe this is a fanboy creation. This was posted at around 9:30 PM on the Tennessee Vols Fever FB page. The red "claw tear" design in the background doesn't help the credibility a lot either, however I thought I would throw it out there... and hopefully "throw it out" will be the option chosen.
  12. Not sure where in the world I would go to find out this information, so I place it here. I hope someone has an idea or at least it sparks a discussion. Has there ever been a regular season hockey broadcast (NHL or Professional Minors) done from the player's bench? I know this has been done for a few preseason games, however I am wondering as to whether it has ever happened for an actual game. I realize there have been a lot of "between the glass" and "down by the boards" broadcasters added in recent years. (The equivalent of sideline reporters in football) I am wondering about the actual play-by-play. Apparently this is going to happen this week due to the lack of availability of press row in a minor league arena. Should be interesting.
  13. This is from a Goodwill store in Huntsville, Alabama. West Coast Bulldogs. I can only imagine how it made its way to Huntsville.
  14. Congratulations to the U of Maryland, on their Pogo the Clown uniforms.
  15. The Georgia set was so bad I couldn't stare at it long enough to locate where they put the Kotex logo.
