    Including the Buccaneers, EIGHT teams have a total of FIVE primetime games each.


     

    TNF, SNF, & MNF scheduling is a joke and always has been.

     

    Well you have to pick someone, and of course Fox and CBS get their say as well.  There could be some flexing in/out that happens late in season like usual.

     

    Also take into consideration, if college football doesnt play this fall, you could see some of the Sunday game shift to Saturdays too.


  2. Going by the Bucs schedule, amd since I'm pretty sure they will weare the alts at night they likely will wear the pewter alts in Week 9 vs New Orleans and Week 11 vs the Rams.  


  3. After seeing highlights of the KBL, it makes me wonder if something like the NC Dinos stadium should be a model for the Rays to follow in Tampa Bay.  It seats 22k as is, but could be configured a little bit differently to allow for a few more, and allows for social gathering spaces.

    Headquartered, in Jacksonville, FL. I remember when it started as a brick and mortar place in a local mall around the time the Jags did.

    This might be why i dont have many issues with shipping.  Living near Tampa I usually have items within 3 days or so from leaving Jacksonville.

    It's awful, they've taken aways choices and quality. The hat assortment at Lids.com is so limited now it's insane.

    Yeah this was the move that really ticked me off.  Lids used to always have stock in what i wanted, but now that Fanatics stocks them its nuts.

     

    If I dont get a product I want (like the draft hats for the NFL this year) within the first day or so, forget it.

    Not really aware of the program or the individual, but curious! when you say "started out here", do you mean he started his design career and refined his craft with CC from the board or he was a member that contributed to the board but was a career designer? Just curious of if this board has helped people make the jump from hobbyist to career. 

    Probably a little bit of both.  Brian contributed but also honed his craft here.  He posted early on around the time he was in college if I recall, but once he got into his career and stuff he stepped away.  Heck, I forget his board handle.

    I thought the idea was that the basketball teams flipped for conflict purposes, so the Magic were on the otherwise-Miami Florida feed and the Heat were on Sun. 

    We dont see a lot of Heat games in Tampa Bay.  It might be different in other parts of the state, but the majority of games of the Miami teams we see here are the Marlins.

    I didn't see this before, but the Astros have a logo and possible uniform patch to celebrate 20 years at Minute Maid Park.

     

     

    Also means 20 years since these plus the pinstripe home jersey.

    It's not really a Fanatics problem if Nike hasn't made them yet for any store. 

    As with it not being a production issue, Fanatics has been producing less due to the pandemic too.

    Eh, it's not super relevant. I certainly see more Magic coverage in Tampa compared to any other NBA teams. And the Magic partner with the Bucs, Lightning, and Rays on a number of community projects. It's not that out there to think there's some overlap between the two.

    Because of the local broadcast partners (Fox Sport Florida and Fox Sports Sun), FS Florida usually sticks with the Miami teams (Panthers, Heat, Marlins) and FS Sun takes the rest (Magic, Lightning, Rays). 

     

    There are also different feeds in the Miami and Central Florida areas.  For me in the Tampa Bay area, Rays and Lightning are on FS Sun, and Magic go to FS Florida.

    From what I've seen and heard, this is an "option" because the relationship between Charlotte and Carolina has deteriorated. Whether that's front office or more on the ownership side, I'm not sure but given Dundon's history, it wouldn't surprise me if he's pissed someone else off.

    That would have the be the only reason theyd consider moving affiliates from a regional pairing to the leftover Chicago Wolves.

     

    Florida-Chicago could make sense as flights can be had pretty easy from MDW and ORD to Fort Lauderdale.

    I'd like it if minor league team's alts resembled the parent team. For example, the Knights have their own identity and branding, using black, gold, and white and entirely unique logos and wordmarks but had that SOX fauxback that I kinda wish became permanent, if only for that cap. Of course, the Knights also wear pinstripes so that's another connection to the ChiSox but I think relying on the parent team's brand results in a weaker brand overall, one that doesn't connect to the minor league city and also reduces the parent club's brand because it can potential cause confusion (not that it's all that likely, but when the Red Sox and PawSox's jerseys are basically identical I draw the line). Additionally, if the Major League-style jersey is an alt, it helps reduce the amount of stupid food-based alts we see. It's win-win!

    Yes this is a good idea.  Ive always thought that minor league teams should have their own identity, but something like an alternate could be affiliate themed since these jerseys are usually used on a 1-3 season use rotation.

    The NFL schedule is about to be released this week. Can we get the 2020 season thread started?

     

    Seeing all the new uniforms for this year is really making me want to get Madden 21. I want to get the game already.

    The 2020 season thread for general talk is in Sports In General.

     

    This one should suffice until the real season begins in the fall.
