  1. If LAFC just used a traditional gold adidas striping , this would be a top notch kit. I absolutely love the new league number font. It’s looks great in black and gold. It’s a shame the new template ruins it. I think it’s one of the best in the league with those using the new template, but that’s not exactly glowing praise.
  2. This template is terrible. There’s not a single kit that wouldn’t be improved if Adidas just used their traditional striping. At least LAFC’s kit striping is black on black, so it somewhat hides the hideousness. I can’t wait until the MLS eventually allows individual teams to pick their own manufacturer for their kits.
  3. Man, not going to lie, watching Shaq being honest broke my heart. I applaud all 5 men there being vulnerable and showing emotion together.
  4. The Clippers-Lakers game on Tuesday has been postponed. This was a good decision by the league. Both teams don’t have another game until later this week.
  5. Trae wore #8 for the entire first half. And I imagine non-Laker teams would wear a patch (or wear the black stripe for both Stern and Kobe), if they choose to honor him league wide.
  6. Agreed that’s what Kobe would have wanted, but seeing how players and coaches alike are reacting? They should have cancelled them. Doc Rivers’ interview was heartbreaking.
  7. They should have cancelled the games today.
  8. It’s being reported that his daughter, Gigi (aka the basketball loving daughter) was onboard. Please don’t let that be true. What the f***...
  9. I’m utterly heartbroken. Kobe was my all-time favorite player of any sport. I’m in shock and choked up. Really feels like a family member has died.
  10. Most definitely. These Niners are so, so good. Wish the Seahawks had made it to this game instead of the Packers. Would have been a game at least. Just glad I don’t have to root for them anymore. Go Chiefs!
  11. Not exactly true. They were 8-1 in one score games, had the worst point differential of any of the teams who earned a first round bye (actually, they have the worst PD of any team who received a bye in the last 5 years). This was an overachieving team.
  12. Rodgers is an all-time great QB, arguably the best passer the game has ever seen (Mahomes is closing in on the title though. And doing so quickly), but he hasn’t been his usual elite self since the end of 2016. He’s been an average quarterback for the better part of the last 3 seasons. It happens. It’s nice people are finally realizing this.
  13. I don’t take it personally. Sports aren’t that important.
  14. Ahh, a January tradition like no other. The Green Bay Packers getting favorable calls from the officials to win football games. Can’t believe I have to root for the 49ers.
  15. Saw it on the Rams’ Instagram Story. I think it’s at a specific location. Gate 28 team store.
  16. I think I can speak for the boards at large when I say this joke has vastly improved the quality of our lives. A true moment of comedic, trash-talking brilliance on your part. Did you pull this one directly from Facebook?
  17. Not that it means anything, but the Rams announced a massive sale, 60-75% off of everything but the royal jerseys for the next three days.
  18. It’s time for our Neon Cowboys. Go Hawks.
  19. I’m cautiously optimistic about the hiring of Mike McCarthy. I want to see how he fills out the rest of his coaching staff, but so far it looks promising. Definitely an upgrade over Garrett. EDIT: We’re keeping Kellen! As long as this offense stays aggressive, we’ll be very good next season.
  20. Dak has the third most wins since he’s been in the league and only one of 3 QB’s to have 40 or more wins in that span, but that doesn’t mean he’s been the third best QB since 2016. Or do you believe Jimmy G is a better QB than Mahomes, Watson and Wentz because of qb winz? QB wins is one of the worst metrics to use when evaluating quarterbacks.
  21. Dak has been a top 5 QB this season... By every meaningful metric. He wasn’t the issue this season.
  22. We’re going to finish at 8-8 with a +100 point differential and will be sitting at home during the postseason. By every metric, and advanced statistic, the Cowboys are one of the better teams in the league except in the stat that matters the most. I’m so ready for a new coaching staff. This year has not been fun lol.
