  1. The throwback from 2003; And the socks!
  2. Just having a weird debate with a friend tonight, and I thought I'd throw the question out to the assembled board. Do you see the stripes on the Cardinals' socks as a red sock with two separate white/navy/white stripes, or as a red sock with 3 stripes (navy, red, and navy again) in a white field? And does this question even make sense?
  3. He didn't just say it, he PAID THEM EXTRA TO DO IT. It's stunning that that piece of filth is still coaching. Or actually, maybe it's not so stunning.
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPZCVCZNc50&t=77s A lot of Saints players lined their pockets with a lot of extra money that day.
  5. Actually, no, I don't think PI should be reviewable. It's too subjective, and at super slow motion, pretty much everything looks at least a little like interference. And then, what about holding? And roughing? And blocks in the back? Where does it stop? Should we just take a break between every play while someone hunches over a screen and fine-tooths eveything? Enough. Just play and stop bitching. You think the refs messed up? Hey, it happens... I have an idea for last year's Saints. Play defense in the overtime, jackasses. Maybe your future HOF quarterback shouldn't have thrown a pick.
  6. Or, put another way, an overreaction and potentially disastrous rule, forced down everyone's throats by the biggest crybaby fanbase ever, is being smartly marginalized before the floodgates to something even stupider open.
  7. NY Giants vs. New England Carolina vs. Tampa Bay Washington vs. Miami Houston vs. Kansas City Seattle vs. Cleveland Cincinnati vs. Baltimore New Orleans vs. Jacksonville Philadelphia vs. Minnesota San Francisco vs. LA Rams Atlanta vs. Arizona Tennessee vs. Denver Dallas vs. NY Jets Pittsburgh vs. LA Chargers Detroit vs. Green Bay
  8. The last time the Vikings wore anything other than purple over white, or white over purple was December 1, 2016... that's 1042 days ago, if you're counting. I'd just as soon see that streak continue. I like it when a team commits to a look, assuming that look doesn't suck. The Vikings have worn their stupid color rush thing once... that was all I needed to see of it. If they absolutely insist on having an alt, a throwback to the 60's uniform would be much much more preferable.
  9. Does the phrase "greatest game ever played" sound historic? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WADr8cZTz2M
  10. This is quite literally my favorite thing about the Giants' uniforms. At least it was before they ruined their near perfect look with those stupid white pants.
  11. Good Lord, that's beautiful!! (Sorry, just passing through.)
  12. Seahawks, Bengals, Falcons, Browns, Cardinals, Buccaneers, Titans... my brain tends to lump all these uniforms together into one category marked "blows". All need to go away.
  13. LA Rams vs. Seattle NY Jets vs. Philadelphia Atlanta vs. Houston Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh New England vs. Washington Buffalo vs. Tennessee Arizona vs. Cincinnati Chicago vs. Oakland Minnesota vs. NY Giants Jacksonville vs. Carolina Tampa Bay vs. New Orleans Denver vs. LA Chargers Green Bay vs. Dallas Indianapolis vs. Kansas City Cleveland vs. San Francisco
  14. I've said it before, but I'll repeat it. The above is the only home combination the Seahawks need. The blue over gray is the only dark version of their current set that looks like something an NFL team would wear. The gray pants are all they need.
  15. There's no saving that abomination. The truth is the number font is so over-the-top, laugh-out-loud horrific, it actually helps distract you from how bad everything else is. There's no part of this steaming pile that's worth considering... just get it over with and flush it.
  16. Agreed, but those are both uniforms (along with the 49ers '90's over-designed mistake) that some folks around here seem to love.
  17. A couple of other contenders in the "weirdly loved and divisive" category.... \
  18. It feels like a dumb gimmick for the very good reason that it inarguably is a dumb gimmick. Even when it was just Boise it was a dumb gimmick, but when half a dozen other rinky dink programs jump on the embarrassing bandwagon, a school like Boise, which at least would like to see itself as semi legitimate, should look around at the clownish company it's suddenly keeping.
  19. Out of curiosity, can you see it now? It's showing up on my laptop, but not my phone. Weird.
