  1. Is there any reason to change the helmet?
  2. Where did you find those? I've been trying to contact the XFL for logo sheets or anything with the primary and secondary logos, but no luck. I really want to know the exact colors they are using and what all the secondary logos are.
  3. Where can I find logos, colors, and uniforms for the Continental Football League? I've tried a few places, but very few sites offer pics or even logos. What's the "go to" site for this league?
  4. So is Seattle's official primary color blue or green? I honestly don't know. Their logo is primarily green, with little blue. But their home uniforms are blue. And the score bug on Fox shows blue as the primary color, but last week's ESPN bug showed green. The stadium is dressed mainly in orange and their away uniforms features pretty much no blue. So which is it?
  5. We never actually used that format. The plan was to always have the crown on both sides. It was just a matter of the marketing department mixing up our intentions.
  6. I wonder what the story is here. I just hope LA doesn't become like the Legends. We had like 4 OCs during the whole season. Can't tell you why really, it just happened.
  7. I wonder what the expansion plan is for the MEAC. The only remaining HBCUs that they could add are in D2. I find it unlikely that Tennessee State would leave the OVC for the MEAC. Nor do I think any SWAC school would jump ship. D2 is pretty much the only place to go. Further, Kentucky State is planning on moving up to D1 and have been eyeing the OVC. I wonder what they would do if the MEAC were to make them an offer.
  8. I'm simply disappointed in the lack of color and creativity in the field designs. It's bad enough that it's the XFL logo at midfield, but the endzones are not fully painted, the text is all the same, just with color variations, and the Progressive logo! I suspect that they are being limited in what they can do rather that this being a free choice. Say what you will about the AAF, but they had much more colorful field designs.
  9. I should clarify. The penalties were being called on us and not on them. They too were slipping out of their stances all night, it just wasn't called on them because they were the #2 team in the state and we weren't.
  10. I thought that Globe Life Park was going to be the Renegades' stadium. As in they (the XFL) owned it.
  11. My high school football stadium was over 100 years old and was like a city historical site. Naturally, we took pride in our stadium. One thing that pissed us off was that the Catholic high school would play all their "home" games at our stadium. Besides the issues of pride and the Catholic school's staff during game days, there were two main points that annoyed us. 1) Our field was grass and every week the stadium was hosting us or them. I recall one time where it had been raining the week before and the Catholic school tore up the field so bad, that by the time our game rolled around next Friday, in which it was also raining, the entire field was a mud pit. It was so bad that our team got false start penalties that cost us the game, because out players were sliding in the mud while just trying to get into a three point stance. 2) The Catholic high school had more that enough money to build their own stadium. The school had been around for more that 60 years at that point and never build one, despite being the 2nd richest private school in the state. They refused to build their own stadium, but used outs. Eventually they did build their own stadium, but not until years later. In relation to the soccer teams and the XFL; I don't see what the soccer teams would have to get upset about. Ok there is the issue of tearing up the field if it was grass, but these are pro franchises that spend millions of dollars for professional upkeep, so they should be able to do a better job at keeping the field green over our high school volunteers. And if it's turf? So what?
  12. You don't need footage to do a documentary on the subject. And it would seem to me that there should be no end to local newspaper articles on the teams and people from that era that would have been interviewed during and after that time.
  13. Your point? I don't know much, if anything about the Panhandlers or the Yellow Jackets BECAUSE the NFL doesn't put any info out there. All I really know is that they were teams in the NFL. That was my point.
  14. There's been something bugging me about this 100 year celebration that the NFL has been doing, or not doing. Despite the fact that the NFL was founded in 1920, the current "celebration" doesn't seem to cover anything before 1960. This is actually a general criticism I have of the NFL. They will talk about the history of the league starting from pretty much the 1958 NFL championship (The Greatest Game Ever Played) and the introduction of the AFL in 1960 and their decade long feud with the NFL. But pretty much everything between 1920 and 1959 is glossed over and ignored by the NFL. Case in point; I'm from Louisville, Kentucky originally where Cardinal football (and Wildcat football) reign supreme. Imagine my surprise that from 1921 to 1926 (debatable but beside the point) the NFL had a team in Louisville. I never knew that! And growing up and working with diehard sports fans, none of them had ever heard it. It took Wikipedia for me to even learn about it. And yet, the NFL never mentions this team, or the Kansas City Cowboys, or the Columbus Panhandlers, or the Frankfort Yellow Jackets, or any of the dozens of NFL teams that existed in their history. Hell, even Madden with their stupid micro-transaction MUT system, doesn't even have players like Red Grange, Fritz Pollard, or Jim Thorpe, players that MADE the NFL what it was and without them, there would be no NFL today. Add on to that, that the NFL Shop, never sells any products related with these teams. We get throwbacks sure, but when was the last time you could purchase a Dayton Triangles hat? Even though the Akron Pros were the first champions of the NFL, never gets recognized. No documentaries, no merch, no mention, nothing. It's like the NFL wants to ignore all these franchises and half of their history. I guess what I don't understand is how you can have a 100 year celebration and not recognize or discuss the ENTIRE 100 year history of the league. Why is the Super Bowl era the only one that matters?
  15. Is there a significant reason why Tampa Bay doesn't just go back to the creamsicle and white? Every Bucs fan I've ever known loves the creamsicle uniforms and hate the new ones. It just seems to me that public demand wants them back. Public demand did get the Rams their throwbacks as primary, Atlanta their red jerseys, San Fran their current "classic" look, the Bills to change their uniforms from the 2002 change, the Jags to add more teal in their uniforms, and the Broncos to wear orange jerseys. Seems to me that public demand wants Tampa Bay to go back to their original colors.
  16. How can you say that Salt Lake had the worst when they could't even change the design? That's not their fault and to say that their field design was bad is not fair to the team. I'm sure had they been allowed to do something with the field, it would have been good. What fields are you talking about anyway? Honesty the worst of the bunch might have been Orlando, but that's only because their endzones were boring.
  17. WHY?!?! What is wrong with the traditional Blue and Red? What is the point of black, gold, yellow, orange, or what ever crap that's been out there? Why? Somebody tell me why!
  18. As do I. And I was hoping that adding the link would allow the main site to update the AAF section.
  19. Why and why do European teams do it that way? Also:
  20. I do not understand soccer teams. Why are the naming conventions so weird? Why is the format [Insert City/Region/State/School] and [Insert mascot], lost on soccer teams? Whats the point of adding FC at the end of most teams? Why do we have abstract terms like "United"? And what the hell is a "Sporting"? I'm sorry it really bugs me and being from Louisville myself, it's frustrating that they can't come up with a real name for either the men or women's team.
  21. Is this really going to happen? I mean, I've been trying to follow whats going on, but why exactly is MLFB having such an issue? https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/10/29/major-league-football-buys-aaf-gear-targets-may-2020-launch/
