    You want the worst team in the AL to trade for guys that are going to be free agents in 3 months?

    Absolutely. It would actually give fans a reason to willingly pay to go to games.

     

    A friend of mine went to a game earlier this season when COVID restrictions were still heavily enforced and an usher told him there was literally zero difference between those COVID games and any regular game the Orioles play. The sad part is that is absolutely true. There’s nothing to root for in Camden Yards. It’s a bottomless vortex of misery and has been for quite some time. It’s the main reason why I think the team needs to fast track Adley Rutschman as well as other minor leaguers, including Cal Ripken’s son, Ryan into the majors solely to sell tickets and get fans excited again. This “rebuild” has no end in sight.

    A KC in a flame? Sounds neat. And unique. I don't think any NFL team is using fire iconography so they would be unique playing up the "Chiefs of BBQ" bit.

    A smoker (flames inside)  with the “KC” would be cool. Maybe a crown-smoker combo (since slow-smoked is the KC style). It’s also the perfect opportunity to remove black and add yellow.

    Hear me out,

     

    A flame with “KC” where the tail pokes out beyond a crown. Would be a nice way to connect to the city and cross-parking lot companions, the Royals.

    Why is it always firemen? 

     

    Look, this is simple. The Chiefs' name is very generic. It's almost universal in human society. If you want to play the "race and agency" card most European ethnicities had leaders whose titles translates as "Chief."

    And that's before we even get into how widespread it is in a non-anthropological sense. It's not even just police and fire. "Chief" has just come to mean "boss" in a lot of places, either formally or informally. 

     

    So this need to insist that they have to pivot from Natives to something specific just doesn't make sense to me. Just embrace "Chief" as meaning "boss" or "guy in charge." Put the KC on the helmet without a framing device. 

     

    Problem solved. 

    I’d even say lean into the whole Kansas City being the “BBQ capital of the world” and utilize a flame logo of some sort.

     

    I’m sure Guy Fieri isn’t too busy these days.

  4. Really hoping the Orioles can pull something out of their asses to get either Trevor Story or Kris Bryant. Even if that includes shipping away Trey Mancini.

     

    I’m over this never ending “not a rebuild even though it is, but we’re not going to say it is” bull :censored: this team pulls every single year.

    Seems like everything they've done from 2020 on has been perfect. Field design and graphics for this season are improvements too. Just hope they figure out how to have a real logo one day...

    Maybe one day an updated version of this will grace the 50 yard line

  6. The thing is, with every Nike rebrand, the team will 100% want its own custom font to differentiate from everyone else.

     

    IMO, the only number font that should have never seen the light of day was Tampa Bay 1.0. They fixed that mistake this time around. The Rams number font is completely fine because at least it’s legible.

  7. My vote is still for 32s/Thirty-Twos with a dark horse candidate being (Capitol) Hilltoppers, but chances are we’ll just end up with a refined Football Team/Club identity

    They were pushed into doing it, but the fact remains they did it (while the KC Chiefs lay low without any outcry).    Again, it goes back to how they rebrand it.   They could use a different symbol altogether.     The Pentagon is full of warriors, it's not unique to Natives.   Dozens of examples here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warrior

     

    If Warrior has the historical context you claim, then GS should not be allowed to use it, voluntary rebranding or not.

     

    Whatever.   Don't give me Red Wolves which no one associates with DC.   

     

     

    They need to stay away from Native American imagery as much as “America! F Yeah!” imagery.

     

    The team could utilize “Warriors” with whatever connotation they want, but everyone would know it’s just “old name+”

    In the last photo here (of Eagles Miles Sanders) even the TV announcers commented that he wouldn't have stumbled up if not for the undershirt.  I think these photos are indisputable evidence that there's some hinderance.  Maybe not for an offensive lineman, but for these guys.  As for why the coaches don't say anything?  I don't know - maybe football coaches aren't as smart as people make them out to be.  They spend too much time trying to draw up plays to exploit mismatches when all they have to do is tell their players to dress like professionals.

     

    EDIT: that's actually not the photo of Miles Sanders getting tackled by his shirt, but same point.

    Do you have some kind of alert set up where you get notified every time I post so that you can follow it up with some dumb meme or some other thing?  Seriously - you don't need to react to every post I make - especially those that don't concern you.

    I mean when you keep regurgitating the same ol “these ‘jabronis’ don’t know how to dress” nonsense, it gets tiresome after a while. Who cares. They get paid millions to do what they love. Look, we all get it. Aesthetically, it looks like crap, but if they want to dress like that to feel comfortable or to (unfortunately) risk injury (which for some reason you’ve been known to wish upon a player), it shouldn’t be your concern.

     

    Want to truly stop the undershirt problem? Maybe these defenders should learn how to tackle properly because obviously holding onto a shirt for dear life isn’t the answer.

    I realize that this is the “hindrance” you’re talking about. What I’m saying is that it if it was this huge, game changing  problem, the players OBVIOUSLY wouldn’t do it with so much money on the line. The coaches would OBVIOUSLY say something, and it just wouldn’t happen. But it seems like getting dragged down by their jerseys isn’t a big concern it terms of performance/dosent happen that much, so oh well 🤷‍♂️ Again, I get your aesthetic problem with it. But pretending you know more about “the distinct performance difference between an untucked jersey and a tucked jersey”, than actual NFL players Jabronis, is silly.
