  1. I am clearly in the minority of those who have put their 2 cents in. I think the colors are great, but the way it is put together looks like a beer league softball team.
  2. Maybe the year '47 on the side is a clue to the 47 Yankees. - Kidding, but not really. http://exhibits.baseballhalloffame.org/dressed_to_the_nines/detail_page.asp?fileName=al_1947_newyork.gif&Entryid=754
  3. According to ESPN.com, other teams unveiling will be: Marlins 5/21 White Sox 6/5 Cubs 6/12 Diamondbacks 6/18 Giantess 7/9 Dodgers late August
  4. There is some on the numbers, but I would like to see much more.
  5. I agree with you. I have PM'ed you. I'll also gladly apologize publicly if any of my comments have seemed to be anything other that what I was saying. With your agreement, I will be glad to have any and/or all of these comments removed. This is exactly what I would rather not have on a sports logo forum.
  6. I made no accusation. I said "I'm not saying that is what was done by Sec19Row53? I'm just asking." This was general question The response was "Suppressing? No. Pointing out why an argument is invalid (IMO, obviously)? Yes" The above is the quote that was the acknowledgement of it being done and that it was the intention by Sec19Row53. I think a legal argument of a statement being admissible in court is for a legal forum. I think that a sports logo forum is for sports logo opinions. I don't understand why someone's opinion here has to hold up to legal standards. Ark felt that the two logos are not similar. IMHO, most people who come to a sports logo forum like to read what others think about about sports logos. There are many logo/designs opinions that may violate legal qualifications or just league rules. All I was asking is why is there a need for that. Again I was making no accusations toward Sec19Row53.
  7. I like how they used the wrought iron designs, and the lettering is really clean. The only thing that I don't like is the NCAA blue circle. The only thing good about it is that it is balanced with the basketball.
  8. It is perfectly valid here. This is a sports logo forum. Ark thinks the two logos are nothing alike except for the oil derrick. I like hearing others people's thoughts on sports logos. Again, I'm not saying that you are trying to suppress (or invalidate) someone's opinion on a sports logo board. You did that. I just think that Ark's (or any others) sports logo opinion shouldn't be attempted to be invalidated. I don't know why there is such a need by some for that. Maybe it makes people feel better about themselves. Thank you Ark for expressing your sports logo opinion here. I feel that this is the correct place to do that. I enjoy reading them. I'm sorry that others need to attempt to invalidate that you or anyone else has an opinion....no matter how "obviously" others think that it should be made "invalid".
  9. Well, first, this isn't a court case. This is a sports logo forum. Second, the obvious opinion stated in Ark's second statement doesn't change the fact of Ark's first statement. Nobody is going to attempt to submit Ark's comment on this Chris Creamer's Sports Logo Community as evidence into any legal hearing. IMHO, I think that others should be allowed to say what they think about logos here...even if it isn't admissible into a US court of law. Why is it that some people feel the need to suppress others input and thoughts on this forum? I'm not saying that is what was done by Sec19Row53? I'm just asking.
  10. Thank you for sharing that. It is really cool that you got a real response.
  11. You use words like most without any numbers to back it up. I have native American friends who would argue that as incorrect. Some may, and I think for those it is worth changing the name as to not be disrespectful. As far as the father, it is something that is used from decoration up to ceremonial and religious purposes. I would like to see them come up with a completely different design, but I don't think it is terrible if they kept a similar design, even if those changes put something in place of a removed feather. Washington's iconography isn't like Wahoo. It was tastefully done. It is the name that is arguably racist.
  12. A feather is not a slur. I don't know how it could "looks like the slur". Native American iconography is not racist. So what if there is an animal part replacing another animal part in a team roundel?
  13. To the mods, Can we put concepts and "what-ifs" in a concept thread? I think a 2020 changes thread should be for actual 2020 changes. Thanks in advance!
  14. I think Blazers would be one of the worst names, because of the reference to the Civil War.
