  1. (Please remove if too controversial, I've given no opinion just stating what happened) The undergraduate student senate at the University of Illinois has voted 105-2 (with 4 abstaining) in favor of replacing the Fighting Illini mascot with the belted kingfisher. Athletic department must make the change though. A previous student referendum had made clear that many are in favor of the move beyond just the senate. https://www.news-gazette.com/news/ui-senate-backs-kingfisher-mascot/article_bfa68b8e-469b-5f1a-8438-5631a2644c94.html
  2. Anthony Barr out for season. Hopefully the Vikes can pick up Lawrence, or at least Lance
  3. Even if the Padres are eliminated right away Petco is being used as part of the LA-SD bubble for the ALDS and ALCS
  4. Justin Timberlake has become an investor in the group trying to bring MLB to Nashville https://www.tennessean.com/story/sports/2020/09/09/justin-timberlake-mlb-nashville/5751814002/ EDIT: this is the wrong thread. Can a mod please move this to the right one
  5. I hope Minnesota changes its flag. Its a SoB and a lot of people find that the imagery on the seal is problematic anyways. A lot of Minnesotans (including me) fly the "north star" flag instead. This: Versus:
  6. Thats the biggest load of bull :censored: I've ever seen on this site Edit: Green Bay and Chicago weren't even competitive teams when Staubach was on the Cowboys with 1 division title between them from 69-79. Their main playoff rival was Minnesota. What the are you talking about
  7. I wouldn't be surprised if they cancel the season to prevent students from unionizing
  8. The states motto is an homage to French-Canadians who founded many settlements in Minnesota. In fact, the county Minneapolis is in is named after a French-Canadian
  9. Wtf I love Joe Kelly now
  10. One day everyone that remembers them playing as the slurs will be dead and only a very small amount of people will refer to them by their former name. That name will just be an example of how far society has come since the backwardness of the 2020s. Death is inevitable so we might as well find comfort in it somehow
  11. Edmonton Elks (it wouldn't be Elk) is a phenomenal name for a CFL team. If the EE logo wasn't so iconic I would want them to have antlers on the helmet but them not having to change the uniforms at all will make the transition easier
  12. Its definitely a great design. I know UVA does it but I can't think of anyone else. It works well for Detroit for sure
  13. Doesn't look good on the Broncos, Benagls, Jags or Texans. It really fits with the old-school style of having numbers on the side of the helmet for the Team Formerly Known as a racial slur. The rest are a lateral move at best
  14. Hearing the name then seeing the logos feels like this
  15. I'm glad they didn't go gimmicky with the logo. If it was a cartoon Kraken with a hockey stick that would suck. I feel like its kinda like the Wild with an awful name but good logo and colors
  16. Seattle Hypersonics
  17. I'm thinking San Antonio just because Portland has already had groups trying to quash building a baseball stadium. Jerry Jones has said he would support a team coming to San Antonio so the only major hurdle is if they would want to play a few holdover seasons in the Alamodome. Other than that, Toronto could be attractive if worse comes to worst for the CFL. Idk if any team would want to play in the Skydome for a few seasons so that could be a hindrance
  18. I hope its kraken so the Wild no longer have the worst name in hockey
  19. @simtek34 I hope they make that wordmark full time. A modern version of our original uniforms would be awesome. Hopefully with a brand new Minnesota script for the road
