  1. To me it would look odd for the Wild to wear a fauxback dating back to the 1920s-30s and then the Blues wear a jersey design that they actually wore in the late 1960's. If one team is wearing a fauxback, both most likely will.
  2. The jersey is going to be a fauxback to the 1930s. Below is a photo from the STL Authentics Twitter page. The crest will have some sort of twill logo with chain stitching. Based on the other photo, the jersey will most likely be gold based. It might be based on a 1931-32 St. Louis Flyers sweater.
  3. I'm thinking there it could be another AHA take such as the 1940-41 St. Louis Flyers sweater. The crest with the wings could easily be repurposed for a fauxback vintage St. Louis Blues logo.
  4. I don't get such a push for Red Tails. The Red Tails from World War II had nothing to do with the DC area. If it was an NFL team in Montgomery, Alabama or even Birmingham, I could see it do to their location to Tuskegee. Otherwise it just sounds like something forced.
  5. Very interesting. Next thing you know someone will create a website where people discuss all of the teams' laundry.
  6. Also, colleges have been discussing about possibly playing football in January or February if needed. If that's the case, then the XFL would be in a tough position in 2021 as well.
  7. I felt like the XFL had potential of heading in the right direction. Two changes I would make would've been to move the Los Angeles team to San Diego and somehow get San Antonio involved.
  8. I'm wondering if it is as simple as Vince McMahon needs the money he set aside for the XFL to keep WWE solvent during this pandemic.
  9. There's no such thing as sports branding evolution for European soccer. The way soccer teams in Europe have been named has not changed since the 19th century. On the other hand, professional sports teams in the United States have been using nicknames since its early days. Soccer/football in the United States has an identity crisis. These clubs want to use the name football but are playing in leagues with the name "soccer." You are either a soccer team or a football team and in the U.S. the sport is referred to as soccer and has been since the early 1900's.
  10. The night aerial shot is not St. Louis. If you look closely there are palm trees visible. That would represent Tampa most likely.
  11. The league will be referred to as "The Alliance" and not any acronyms.
  12. I would disagree St. Louis doesn't support pro football. There was plenty of support until around 2007-2008. When you go a decade without a winning record, nobody should expect to have fans crazy about your team unless you are the only game in town. The Rams, however, will always be third behind the Cardinals and Blues. Support always drops off during long periods of mediocrity. even in St. Louis, the baseball Cardinals didn't have great attendance from 1990-1995. But the combination of the team's success and the McGwire era since 1996 that has dramatically boosted annual average attendance. The bottom line is, if the Rams get turned around, more fans will want to go. You just can't continuously support financially organizations that don't strive to create championship teams.
