  1. The progress you have made from the first design to this last one is incredible. Also a big fan of the color scheme and usage of the squirrel. I'd suggest altering the squirrel's chest area to be a little wider. To me, the squirrel stomach looks stretched upright, almost looking anorexic. The head shape also could use a bit of work on the top. It lost a bit of its squirrel vibe, and almost looks like a fire is on its head.
  2. Of all teams though, The Ravens? I doubt they have much of a female fanbase after all the media coverage on Ray Rice.
  3. It's the second week, nothing is guaranteed right nowThe SEC locked up two playoff spots way before the season even started.
  4. It's still generations away from happening. As fast as it's growing, it'll take for a generation who was part of the surge to be in the demographic that buys tickets and buys sponsor products for it to "take over". Basically when today's kids' children or maybe even grandchildren are in their 30s. Remember we're talking about it becoming the #1 sport here - it might certainly happen, it's just ways away. You are correct that everything is in place and the train is moving in the right direction.I think you're right about the time-frame. And within that time-frame, it'll surely have surpassed baseball (last generation sport), hockey, and possibly basketball. I don't see the NFL ever losing out to soccer here in the states as I personally believe the NFL will "recover" from this minor PR splat. It was a minor PR bump in the road until yesterday, with Goodell's "news conference" then the OTL report. They made the office look terrible, along with the Ravens' administration. What happens if the internal investigation finds that Goodell and others did see the inside-elevator video? Their lying will no longer be a "minor" problem, but be evidence that there is a systemic problem with the league. I'm not sure the average fan should/would care about that even in the first place. Our government and major corporations that you and I support every day act in shady business every day. You only see true outrage/boycott from a small minority versus a large enough upset people to actually bring the NFL down. And even if it did play a major role, the NFLs massive pocketbooks would be able to swindle a fan base with advertisements and talks of a "no bonsensd" policy. It's very pretentious to believe that the NFL American male fan base will be hit very hard by a few coverups of a couple idiot wife beaters. Including me-- I care about the actual football game . let the legal court system handle discipline of these criminals. The NFL is their employer, and usual employers allow the justice system take its place before making any decisions.

  6. Any sport you play is going to lead to bandwagoners. But I would rather see Americans jumping on the Seattle Saunders or NYCFC bandwagon with no ties to the city versus somebody jumping on the Manchester United/Chelsea/Bayern Munich bandwagon.
  7. Youth soccer is the fastest growing youth sport in the United States. The Hispanic population is growing rapidly, and the african-american soccer demographic is definitely growing compared to 10 years ago. More athletes are realizing there are plenty of opportunities pursuing soccer as a career. All signs point to soccer taking over here in the US. The growth of the MLS and the youth/collegiate level is what will determine how far soccer can go here.
  8. The knuckleball will be out of major league baseball completely in the next 10 years.
  9. Yes, major retailers can be racist too.How would you go about demographic analysis then? God forbid we accept the fact that this is a business and that making money is the sole objective. This isn't racism, this is business. Sad to see the owner fall victim to his own 'brainwashed' self, unless this was just a tactic to get the team sold.
  10. At least we'd have some barebones of a game that'd probably receive occasional updates for the first two years and constant updated rosters online for a few years. if only NCAA had one more year.
  11. Nothing wrong with trying to build a young fan-base by offering tickets. Smart way of building the next-gen fanbase.
  12. Apparently racism is being confused with demographic statistics now a days. Even more amazing that this owner self-reported it.
  13. The Bucs just look disgraceful. Secondary is :censored:e, we have no ability to run the ball, and Josh McCown is getting no help. Derek Anderson however? He looks like a HOF against us right now.
