  1. My two oldest sisters graduated from Rosemount! If my family didn't move and I continued growing up in the house we did, I would've ended up going to Eastview instead.
  2. I consider this a downgrade but what do you guys think?
  3. Seattle didn't put in any of the necessary work to get a team or even show interest in a team. Vegas paid a half a billion dollars for a franchise, built a NHL-quality arena and got deposits on 16K imaginary tickets before the team even was awarded. Vegas put their work in to get their franchise. Seattle didn't and Kansas City didn't do anything either. All cities had their chance to bid for an expansion team. Vegas and Quebec City only bid but Quebec City will not get an expansion team due to the league being unbalanced. Quebec City will get their team but only in the form of a team moving (i.e. Carolina) but don't tell me that Vegas is only a tourist town. They have a vast population with many ice rinks around the area and the town does have a very strong hockey community. The Thunder and Wranglers have always had great support, UNLV's hockey team gets great support as well. This city wanted a franchise and got one with Foley leading the charge. I don't see the watered down remark because this league is flourishing with talent and even better talent is coming through almost every draft there's a new huge talent coming into the league. Hockey doesn't work in the south? Arizona just claimed the most recent first overall pick. Southern California teams have 3 cups, the first California-born Cup winner just was awarded last season. All of those locations are more south than Vegas. Those are just examples of the growth of the game in markets that were scoffed at initially.
  4. Oh I don't? Please explain then what I'm so wrong about then.
  5. It's really disheartening to see so many people here and on Facebook wishing that this franchise :censored: the bed and relocate or fold. I for one like the logo, I kinda wish they would find a consistent color scheme for it and I'm not a fan of the grey however I will be excited to go to one of their games as Vegas is close enough to go to a game there. I'm excited to see a new franchise in the league I love and I hate seeing people stomp on the idea of growing the game we love to new markets. I understand people are upset about Quebec or Hartford or Seattle not getting a franchise but frankly Quebec and Hartford have no chance. Both being eastern conference markets hurts them immediately. Hartford is a great AHL city but too small for the NHL imo. Seattle didn't do the necessary work to bid for a franchise so obviously rule them out. Las Vegas earned the right to have this team and I want them to flourish and build their brand. These "so called hockey fans" need to encourage the growth of the game and support this new franchise over their petty complaints about their preferred city not getting a team.
  6. I'm still holding out for Las Vegas Knightmare
  7. Pumphrey put up 281yds and 3TDs against Cal but no other player put up those numbers against them (including the formentioned Dont'a Foreman) So using and degrading a players schedule against him shouldn't have a place here. A player doesn't control who he plays and what type of defense he plays against. They go out and do their job and he's done that consistently the whole season at a top level on usually within 3 Quarters so he's not just padding his stats. If you want to make the Heisman, a strict Power5 Award then do that but for now it's an NCAA football award and SDSU plays in the NCAA so he should 100% be in the running for the Heisman. I'm sick and tired of hearing how a players schedule should remove him from the conversation when he doesn't control who he plays. He just controls how he performs in the game and when called upon and Pumphrey has done that at a Heisman level consistently all season.
  8. I don't understand what the big deal is. They're both good looking logos and most don't notice that they're different so I don't really understand how they take away from the uniform. This is literally nit-picking for nit-picking sake lol
  9. I don't see why people get pissed about running up the score. If teams don't like it then don't play bigger and better teams. Any team has a chance to score as many as Points as they want, why look down on teams that run their offense and still have success? Theres no mercy rule in sports and every player on that field should know there's a chance you could lose 79-3. They accept that and they still play the game. This is is coming from a Hawai'i fan that just watched his team fly to Ann Arbor to lose 69-3.
  10. Slew Foot implies that Coyles Feet had anything to do with Keith going down, but that is completely untrue. Coyles stick was stuck between the shin pads on teammate Marco Scandella, which happens from time to time during play, however Keith goin backwards into that and falling over is not a slew foot.
  11. I'm interested in this a lot. I actually played two seasons in 2004/05 and 05/06 for the Tulsa Bazooka Blues (ugh that name was awful)

    CSU Rams

    Love it!! Can't wait to see it cleaned up, looks sick.
  13. A LOT of crowds do this why are the Wild fans so much worse? It happens a lot to many other goalies, just get over it doesn't hurt you at all so no reason to call us jerkoffs. Be a proud fan of the winning team, don't be a poor winner. It was 1-1. Crawford was making some unbelievable saves but they were tactless-ly chanting like he gave up 5 goals on 6 shots. If this is the State of Hockey be aware enough of how silly your chant sounds in context. "Jerkoffs" still stands because I'm a poor winner, sorry. You do that chant to get a goalie off his game. Does it work? Probably not but it happens all the time no need to single Wild fans out. You would think for a fan of a team that has had so much recent success you would be a better winner.

  15. The biggest fan base in hockey against the state of hockey? Sure, no one's gonna care. OK: nobody outside hockey hardcores will care.It's by far the worst Finals potential matchup (zip it, Boston haters), because at least with Boston/NY vs. Chicago you can sell the Original Six angle. Pittsburgh you can sell because of Crosby. LA you can sell as the #2 market. Same with Anaheim somewhat. Minnesota/Montreal has no juice. Zip. I'll bet the average hockey fan can't even name a player on either team. That's what NBC's afraid of. You sure seem to think you know everything don't you?Average hockey fan doesn't know who PK Subban? Carey Price? Zach Parise? Ryan Suter? Any of those names ring a bell? You're an idiot if you think those names don't matter to an average hockey fan. Those are superstars that are battling hard for their team. If you don't like it then who cares don't watch it. But don't sit there and say it's a FACT nobody will care because you can't be more wrong and frankly you just look like a ******* idiot.
  16. Best part of that whole article (which is really terrible in the first place) was the comment at the bottom: "SO... Unnamed woman admits to doing drugs, willingly gets naked, does not have sex, can't remember anything else. I should file a police report on myself every weekend, I guess. :/"
  17. Matt I don't think anyone has ever said that about a football helmet on this site.
  18. This had to be one of my favorite logos from the old IHL, Quebec Rafales... And of course.. Minnesota Moose...
  19. Well Randy and Drew are one of the best in the NHL and it is SAN JOSE'S own arena.
  20. Yes, Daly City (and S. San Francisco) is/are a terrible sports town(s). As a small business, the ownership must give consumers a reason to care, otherwise you will fail. When you have five Division 1 basketball schools within driving distance and two with dominant women's teams, one must compete for the discretionary sports dollar and they failed to do that. Don't act like the Cow Palace wasn't literally across the city line from SF. You leave the parking lot and you were in SF proper. And yes SF is a bad sports town. Unless the teams play on the near downtown waterfront no one cares. Even the vaunted Niners couldn't get a new stadium in the city in the end. SF is doing all the can to defeat the Warriors privately funded arena that most cities would fall over themselves to have built. And the Giants, while well supported now, had to have a baseball palace built within spitting distance of downtown, hire a roided out homerun hitter and then win 2 World Series to keep interest up in the team. We'll see if it lasts their next really bad spell. Just can't contain the raging hate boner you have for SF can you? Was the roided out home run hitter on the team when they won the 2 World Series? Umm No and why wouldn't the fans love a winner unlike the A's who can get out of the Giants shadows.
  21. You guy the guy 3 days then you quoted yourself, then 4 days while there are tons of other requests that he is doing. Don't be pushy dude we get it you want yours done, just be patient!!!
  22. No they didn't, just don't be impatient and understand Ren has had A LOT of requests and there's an order to them, just because YOU ask for one doesn't make it the #1 priority. You may think they're jerks but they're not, being impatient and complaining about it makes you the jerk. Just settle down and get some damn patience. Again Ren amazing work, I haven't requested cause I don't really have a logo for you to do, but I just love seeing what you come up with next. Well done.
