  1. I don't hate the Rams new uniforms. I honestly expected them to be worse than what they are. I really like the new helmets. These are a few tweaks away from being a good set IMO. Would've liked to see some yellow socks to be paired with the blue pants, but it is what it is.
  2. I guess I understand why the PLL topic I started was merged in to this one, but I did make that post with the hopes of it serving as the official PLL 2020 season (umm... tournament) thread for those of us the follow pro lacrosse. No harm, no foul. Just didn't expect it lol
  3. Just like every other sports organization in the world, the PLL has been effected by the Coronavirus pandemic. The league was originally going to begin it's second tour in early June with camps beginning in May. League executives postponed the start of the season in response to the pandemic back in March IIRC. Today they announced their contingency plan. https://premierlacrosseleague.com/championship-series/ https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2020/05/06/premier-lacrosse-league-announces-plan-quarantined-tournament-hopes-its-model-can-be-indicator-others/
  4. Plot twist: The Rams wait until May 31st at 11:59 PM PST to unveil their new uniforms
  5. I'm from Maryland. In my home county there is DuVal High School. I'm like 70% sure they've been chanting Duuuuval at football and basketball games within the last decade *shrug*
  6. Could the Chargers get away with wearing the white pants with the royal blue jerseys? I don't think most people would give a damn about the light blue of the pants bolts outline not matching the royal blue jerseys (and it's matching helmet decals).
  7. What's stopping a current Redskins player from changing his number to 99 between now and the number 2 pick tomorrow?
  8. My thoughts on the Chargers new uniforms Overall it's good Was never a fan of the white helmets with yellow pants look of their old uniforms. Not a fan of that look returning. Would have preferred light blue pants in place of yellow pants. The royal blue alternates are my personal favorite from their new set. The navy blue alternates are okay, but something bugs me about a navy blue lightning blue. I don't hate that they brought back number decals from the helmets, just don't think it was necessary.
  9. Pretty much NFL's OT rules, but both teams get a possession. If it's still tied after each team had a possession, the next team to score wins. No UFL games ended in a tie, but IIRC tie games were possible if nobody scored after sudden death went into effect. At least possible for regular season games. I assume an additional overtime period would begin if a UFL postseason game remained tied after the first OT period.
  10. Could a really good new Rams uniform make up for the not so great logo?
  11. Never. Hell, the UFL created an ideal overtime system that pleased both the supporters of "sudden death" and "both teams get a possession", yet the NFL never adopted it. The UFL has been dead nearly a decade and the NFL refuses to adopt UFL overtime for whatever reason. I wouldn't get my hopes up of seeing XFL kickoff in the NFL. The shield can be stubborn.
  12. Same reason the Oakland Athletics wears the letter A on their caps instead of the letter O.
  13. Probably just cut the end off of a sock and used it as a sleeve. Before "performance sleeves" became a normal piece of athletic equipment, that's what a lot of the youth and HS athletes in my hometown did to emulate the Allen Iverson look.
  14. Watching the 96 MLS Cup on ESPN2 right now. Good lord, soccer uniforms sure have evolved. The shorts aren't too visually different from what's worn nowadays, but the jerseys.... WOW! They were practically wearing baggy polo shirts back then. At what point did soccer jerseys shift to the more form fitting, athletic fit shirts we have today?
  15. Simply removing the B from the raven head logo would improve Baltimore's uniforms several notches
  16. Really? Feels like I've randomly seen at least one handball match in the last couple of summer Olympics going back to the 2004 games.
  17. Personally hope red shorts remains an option for D.C United after this season. Unless of course DCU is one of the clubs Adidas grants permission to have third kits. In that case just bring back red thirds, and mix up the jersey/shorts/socks combo a couple times per season.
  18. Does NLL and PLL have some sort of working relationship? When the NLL had the Seals game in Las Vegas, PLL shot a video from the game with their host (or whatever his official title is) RJ. The PLL cameras were allowed in the locker room and everything. That's been the only instance of the two leagues working with each other that I'm aware of.
  19. Also, not a fan of the refs socks matching their shirt color.
  20. My thoughts exactly. They need to adjust the shade of pink next season. This was a major misfire.
  21. Watched the DC United game live on local TV. Was expecting it to look much worse than it did. The XFL season will be over in April and the pitch will go back normal. Not a huge deal.
  22. I think an 18-22 minor league could really work if all the necessary parts were in place (mainly investors & facilities). Assuming the NBA wasn't operating it, I wonder if it could be viewed as a threat to the G League or not? On one hand it would definitely be a head to head competitor for players in that specific age group. On the other hand, players that age out of an 18-22 league would probably wind up in the G League any way (at least those not ready for the main NBA level). So it would be a rival league and a feeder at the same time. Kind of an odd scenario.
  23. Figured The Basketball Tournament was the closest thing to the XFL for basketball based in the US. https://www.thetournament.com/
  24. I know it's not part of their official uniform, but I'd kinda like to see the Guardians wear red socks with the Blk/Gry/Blk combo
  25. Wonder if the XFL considered Columbia University for the Guardians home stadium? You'd think the league (and more so VKM) would love to have some sort of connection to the Ivy League.
