    What makes you think there's anybody who doesn't understand this?

    A majority of complaints that I've seen online regarding the ads on helmets (and if you want to bring in another sport, the NBA with baseline ads on certain courts) has people glossing over the fact that the virus cost the NHL to lose money and they needed some way to get that money back. Of course, people who use the Internet to rant don't understand logic, so...

    No kidding. I couldn't understand the outrage about these ads. They'll be forgotten about in 3 seconds once the games start. It's a helmet - really doesn't matter.

    It's almost as if people don't understand that the NHL (like pretty much any business on the planet) lost revenue last year and they needed ways to recover it. I'm not hopped up about 'em either, but I understand the reasoning behind it.

     

    (First line of my reply not directed at you, but rather at the general outrage)


  3. Okay, some of these (such as Dallas/Portland/Wizards/Memphis/Raptors) are legit. But some others like Boston and the Bucks can use a little work. The green on the Celtics is too dark and the green on the Bucks is too light. Second, while gray works for teams like the Spurs and Nets, teams like the Sixers, Heat and Jazz don't really need it. Third, I would give the Pelicans a Mardi-Gras type uniform, and lastly, I would give the Clippers a uniform that's either a reference to their days in Buffalo or a uni that's reminiscent of their days in San Diego. Other than that, these are some pretty good concepts.


  4. A few unpopular opinions of my own:
     

    • I know Pistons fans like the horse logo better (1996-2001 for the teal one, 2001-2005 for the current colors), but I like their current logo the most. It's a nod to their Bad Boys-era one.
    • I actually like the Washington Football Team name and colors. I just wish the W itself was their logo, however.
    • Just like the White Sox, Cardinals, and Phillies (might have left out a few others), I wish the Yankees would utilize a throwback uniform as an alternate. Maybe 1927? It might be tricky, considering they didn't place numbers on their unis until 1929.
    • I actually like the Indians' C logo, but I would be open to them putting a feather on it to make it stand out. That way, any rumors of them changing their name are squashed.

    Does anybody know why FOX decided to bring back the MLB theme this season? I was so happy when I heard it on Saturday, but I'm just wondering why it took them 10 years to finally correct their horrendous mistake.

    Fox said they're going to use the NFL theme for NFL telecasts only, beginning this year:
