  1. Islanders18.png

    If the Islanders had used this 1997-98 style uni originally in 1995 without the Gorton's Fisherman logo in the middle, it would have been very well received and lasted a few years longer.

    Maybe a year or 2 at most but I don't see it lasting longer really than it did, the wave number and name is just so damn goofy and the striping looks like a drunk child drew it, I just hate how there's no consistency to the thickness of the stripes.

    Also the blues changed their uniforms to have regular numbers the same year the islanders did for the 97-98 season.

    To be honest, I think this uniform looks like it was created in MS Paint.
  2. Yeah, reading that my first thought was that Lewis and Phillips would become a murderous tandem. They would travel around the nation dancing and stabbing people in night clubs. And as OJ showed, you can get away with two stabbing deaths, but after that karma will catch up to you. So, 18 stabbings later, eventually Phillips and Lewis are apprehended in Shreveport, and the Ravens never would have won a Super Bowl.

    You're on a roll today. Well done.
  3. I have two "what if" scenarios from the 1996 draft:

    1. If Simeon Rice didn't do a late charge into the top-3, the Cardinals would have taken Jonathan Ogden (they should have, anyway), leaving the Ravens to take Lawrence Phillips (rated right after Ogden on the board).

    It would have been interesting to see how Lawrence and Ray Lewis would have gotten along.

    Also, with the fifth overall pick, the Giants probably take Rice instead of Cedric Jones, and that would have created a formidable pass rush duo with him and Strahan.

    It's possible that Simeon Rice may have influenced who would have won the SB four years later.

    2. As part of the agreement earlier that year to bring the Browns back in 99, what if any picks that the Brown-Raven organization traded for as the Browns were held for them until 99, and the Ravens were defaulted to 10th overall in each round in 96?

    In 1999, the Browns would have had two first-round picks, two second-round picks, two third-round picks, two fourth-rounders, three fifth-rounders, three sixth-rounders, and four seventh-rounders. With that ammunition, maybe they are the ones making the Ricky Williams trade.

    They would form a duo that would kill the opposition. B)

  4. Both of these hats never made it past 1998:


    I always thought the black hat with the A logo and teal bill was far better than the all-black hat with the D logo that replaced it -- maybe even the best D'Backs hat of all. But that could be just because I've never liked how they had two different monogram logos.
    That cap is one of my all time favorites.
  5. What if the Indianapolis Colts selected Ryan Leaf? Would he have had more success than with the Chargers? Would Manning have busted at San Diego?

    This is talked about here: http://thesportspost.com/blogs/view/nfl-what-if-1998-nfl-draft-peyton-manning-ryan-leaf

    If the Colts take Leaf, they probably end up 2-14, and they get the #2 pick (remember that Cleveland was the #1 pick) in the 99 draft.

    Since Peyton isn't there, and because Leaf is already looking like a big bust, Polian decides to make the trade that he turned down in reality (they could have done the Ricky Williams trade with NO, but decided against it). They could have gotten more first rounders (from 99-02) than the Skins got, as well as getting NO's entire 99 draft.

    That trade could have netted them several star players and key contributors over the next few years, like Anthony McFarland, Brian Urlacher, Shaun Alexander, Richard Seymour, and Drew Brees (while still getting Reggie Wayne in Round 2).

    With those pieces (and others not mentioned), they go on to be the preeminent team of the 2000's.

    So... you're saying it would've been better for the Colts to draft Leaf instead of Manning? :therock:
