  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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!
  4. I think Blazers would be one of the worst names, because of the reference to the Civil War.
  5. I think just because it doesn't copy all of the others, doesn't mean that it isn't great and better than most.
  6. To the mods, Can we try to keep the MLB mega- thread in Sports Logos about sports logos and put arguments about teams in Florida and who had it worse than Montreal fans in General Sports threads? Thanks in advance for whatever you can do!
  7. Mods, can the discussion of rules be moved and get this thread back to a sports logo/uniform/colors discussion? Please!
  8. I wear my khakis full length, but then again i don't slide around in the dirt at my job.
  9. I think a "TC" logo is fine if they want to be the Twin City Baseball Club. Right now it is just ridiculous. "Twins" is okay if you want to be the Minneapolis & St. Paul Twins. If you are Minnesota, then find a mascot that represents the whole state. I think their whole identity and logo is a hodge podge of confusion. IMO, figure who you represent then create any identity around that. Right now they don't know if they represent the state, or two cities within. I think they have the weakest identity in any major sports league.
  10. I may have just missed seeing out posted, but the yankees also had matte helmets today.
  11. IMO, Because the present value of that cash flow is much greater than the value of that cash flow postponed a few years.
  12. I doubt both Lawsons will wear the same number! I bet we'll be able to tell them apart...... because they will have large numbers that are different on their jerseys.
  13. Would there be any other option with an open bidding process for a public institution? Going with the lowest bidder would be illogical. Since all three companies are capable of providing the same support, the amount of the bid would be the only other variable to consider. Well technically contracts for the exact same service can contain several elements of compensation that aren't strictly cash which can be assigned different valuations depending on the terms. Also the cash payment terms of the contracts like lump sums or royalties can vary quite a bit which makes things less cut and dry. Correct. Commercials which promote your school, guaranteeing your school the latest and greatest over the other schools under the brand, as well as many other factors that would be what was in the manufacturers control. All of which any of the big three manufacturers could offer. As far as money the present value of whatever cash payouts to the school is what would be looked at by the AD when taking the monetary aspect into consideration. If all services are the same, then the AD would look at the present value of the cash payout. So the AD would not want to go for the worse monetary deal. Right?
