  1. Very nice stuff all around! That template looks so nice and clean, any plans to release it?
  2. I would melt the statue down and give the proceeds to the victims. 900 pounds of bronze must be worth something right?
  3. Well kind of. the ESPN article states that the trustees are thinking about relocating the statue to their sports museum or the library which still bears his name. The Happy Valley cult will just have to make a different pilgrimage then.
  4. Seattle falls to Chelsea in Roger Levesque's last match. Goodnight sweet, mustachioed prince:
  5. http://www.deadspin....enn-state-mural In what may be a sign to come, the halo painted above Paterno at a local mural has been removed.
  6. When I lived in Rochester, the Open Cup was a huge deal -- especially when the Rhinos won. At that time, however, the Rhinos were trying to make the leap to MLS (when no one else cared) and an Open Cup win was seen as legitimizing. Turned out for naught for the Rhinos though; they totally missed their window to build a new stadium (which they did but is kind of crappy) and make the jump. MLS, dare I say, is too big time now. I should have said any MLS club instead of anybody period. It's unfortunate that other MLS clubs don't put much effort towards winning the Open Cup. Champions League qualification for one. Winning the oldest soccer trophy in the US for another.
  7. Might as well rename Happy Valley Joestown.
  8. I'm kind of serious: Does anybody but Seattle care about the Open Cup? The Sounders get to their fourth straight final, beating Chivas USA 4-1, and will face SKC in the final. A somewhat good week to be a Sounders supporter as John Spencer gets his walking papers from Portland earlier in the week.
  9. Portland's not the first Northwest MLS club to have an identity controversy:
  10. That article offers an intriguing alternative that I haven't seen being discussed here (probably): Folding the Coyotes, and collect an expansion fee from either Quebec City or Seattle (although the SODO Arena has hit a snag.) It obviously makes the NHL more money, and it means that whoever (more than likely Quebec City) can bide their time until their new arena is running.
  11. Why? Is this what happens when minor league hockey teams turn 10? Replace really good logos with crappy generic ones? Cause Idaho did that in 2007 before they got their bearings last year.
  12. How far "down the line" are we talking? Because I really don't think this league has the capacity go beyond adding two more teams. With that looking more and more likely to be NYC and Orlando, the rest of the country is just out of luck. I've heard arguments why Atlanta, Minnesota, St. Louis, and a handful of other cities all deserve teams. I just don't see how the MLS can absorb much more without diluting the talent pool even further. At that point, it'll be just like every other big league, with cities hoping to get a team via relocation. If they add Orlando they'll add at least one more. They're not going to leave the league with an odd number of teams. Which is why Orlando probably isn't happening for a while after NYC 2. Orlando added, it would be twenty. FIFA wants soccer to expand in the US/Canada, so I'm thinking they'll allow 22 or 24 MLS clubs (Orlando, New York, San Antonio for 22, with Tampa and, I'm just throwing it out, Minneapolis for 24)
  13. Why not have just the crown on the third? It'll be a better modern interpretation of the old crown.
  14. I would choose option 2. It seems that the stems in option one blend into the side stripes.
