  1. This is like the 4th or 5th open letter that Cam newton has forced out of the opposition's fanbase after the Panthers beat them, and all of them have been utterly ridiculous. I'm a Falcons fan who's never really been fond of the Panthers, but I'm honestly rooting for Cam at this point because he's been out there having a fabulous old time while idiots expose themselves as such along the way. It is hilarious seeing people get this huffy over football.
  2. I wasn't a fan of these when they came out initially, and I'm still not a fan of all of the crazy alts that they have (including the navy alt), but I've warmed up to them now and they've become one of my favorite looks in the entire NBA. Granted, the rest of the NBA is in a horrid state when it comes to uniforms, but this one is a shining light of doing something right when it comes to the uniforms.
  3. Still can't believe that adidas managed to mess this uniform up in its current state. They had it right (or as close to right as they can get with the current uniform template and material) as recently as 2014, but then they decided to do this. It's maddening.
  4. They have really gotta dump those Bears throwbacks. It's cool to wear throwbacks when it's a cool look that's drastically different from the current look. This fits none of the criteria. Everything about that throwback is a downgrade from the current uniforms.
  5. Ideally, I'd want them to wear orange hats, undershirts, and socks at home and use the orange alt primarily as a home alternate. Keep the black hat as an alternate, and keep on doing what they're doing with the black jersey and the gray jersey. The gray jersey was easily the weakest of the set IMO, and I'm glad that they've basically decided to use the black jersey as their road uni.
  6. This is clearly Levenson looking for a legitimate out to make sure that a sale of the team occurs. He saw the Clippers going for $2B and other teams going for record sales and figured that he had to get in on that action. I don't think that the guy is racist, but I do think that he's trying to strike while the "Hey this guy is racist so we should take his/their team away from him/them" iron is hot. But Brave-Bird's right. I don't think any Hawks fan is going to be shedding tears about Atlanta Spirit Group moving on.
  7. Uruguay Bosnia Netherlands Russia I've gone through the thread and taken a look at everything. Some awesome stuff and intriguing ideas here!
  8. 10/7/13 Braves lose in the NLDS (again) because Fredi Gonzalez decides that he'd rather keep David Carpenter in the game instead of bringing in the best closer in baseball for a 2-inning save. Juan Uribe tries to bunt, fails, swings away, and hits the homer that basically ended the Braves season while Craig Kimbrel looks on in disgust. What made this even worse is that they got a decent enough start from Fredy Garcia and it all went to waste because our manager is basically a robot when it comes to bullpen management. Shortly before that turn of events, the Falcons season basically ended before it started: As the defense made Geno Smith look like Peyton Manning, the Falcons fall to 1-4 thanks to a last-second FG to lose, and Julio Jones breaks his foot in the process and he's out for the season. So basically, 2 of my favorite teams were eliminated in one night.That was a fun night!
  9. Good grief, that hardwood design is funky. Made me think that the image was messed up for a second.
  10. Agreed, that is an amazing looking shirt. Dark green & gold is a great combo and it's no different here. That being said, MLS really can't be too pleased with the fact that they've dedicated an entire week to jersey unveilings and nearly all of them have leaked.
  11. Yeah, I think it's mostly because of the way that they took the promotional photos for this. I'd imagine that it'll look closer to what the throwbacks actually look like once we see them on the court tonight.
  12. I'd try to match the pants & helmet stripes with the sleeve stripes & see how that looks, but other than that, this is a pretty cool crossover! Nice & clean work here.
  13. Whoever's in charge of green-lighting this stuff in Buffalo is just completely dead set on not putting out something good-looking for the Sabres. It's basically like they said "Oh, you got your old logo back. That oughta be enough to keep em happy," while lamenting the fact that they couldn't put the Buffaslug on it.
  14. Which is exactly why I'm totally okay with them punting on the season. Take your top pick, cut some deadweight, and retool for 2014. This season has been an absolute dumpster fire and if anything it's a reality check: Maybe they'll actually build a team from the inside-out and/or do more than just rely on simply warm bodies to play defense. Only way the season would have been worse was if the team actually went 7-9.
  15. The Falcons are Clowning for Clowney. I don't think you'll have to worry about a dogfight.
  16. Because there's no chance of a freak ice storm hitting New Orleans.
  17. Slim-to-none. They just put new LED video boards in to replace the old scoreboards so they figure that's "job done" for the next 10 years. Also, I'm trying to figure out whether or not it's sad or hilarious that Philips will be the oldest stadium for the big-league teams in Atlanta, and it opened in 1999.
  18. Silverbacks busted out a new all-black kit (which was a fitting look considering that they asked the fans to wear black.) Too bad it didn't result in a victory. Congrats to the Cosmos. They were the better team tonight, they've been the better team since they entered the league in the Fall season, and they fully deserved the trophy. Especially so after the goal that Senna scored, which would have been a goal in a lot of other leagues. Once again, congrats to them and their supporters. As for the Silverbacks, maybe next year? I'm still proud of the club for making it this far and for all the steps that they've taken ever since Wynalda came in as the Director. Hopefully this won't be the last time we see the Silverbacks in the Soccer Bowl/
  19. Yeah, this is a mess. The only person (or divisional title) with a somewhat accurate banner here is Ted Turner, and that's because he did own the team while the Hawks had that logo. Other than that, this is a mess. The Hawks never wore that font, so it's basically just a generic banner with Lou Hudson & Nique's numbers slapped on it.Bob Pettit never wore red-&-gold because he never played a minute here in Atlanta.The Hawks never had that primary logo for any of their divisional wins. In fact, their color scheme was red-white-&-blue for the '69-70 divisional title! All the other teams had the "Pac-Man" logo. Mind-boggling that they were able to put that logo on Turner's banner but not on the divisional title banners.I get a headache every time I look at those banners because they're all badly done, but I'm sure that the fanbase probably doesn't care about it that much because the team's identity history is pretty weird and nobody cares about divisional titles. Still, the fact that they haven't fixed it means that I don't have too much faith for the team to put up a decent-looking banner for whenever the team actually wins something in the future (go ahead and get your jokes in now). This is in stark contrast to what the Falcons and Braves have done, especially the Braves since even though they moved the location of their retired numbers, they still managed to keep the numbers historically accurate.
  20. Today's the day for the Monster Truck Extravaganza NASL Soccer Bowl! As happy as I am for the revived Cosmos to actually A: Exist & B: Be successful on the field...man, after the Falcons and the Braves' playoff calamities, I'm pretty hungry for some sort of trophy to finally be awarded to a team in this city. Seems like it should be a pretty awesome atmosphere at the park, as the Silverbacks have added plenty of seats so the place should be rocking tonight. Can't wait for this one. If you aren't gonna be there, it'll be on ESPN3. Hopefully it'll be a great showcase for the league!
  21. Yeah, MLB has gotten EXTREMELY lax with videos being uploaded onto youtube ever since they realized that embracing the internet is a much better way to go about things than to fight against it. Hell, the video that Hedley just posted was uploaded BY MLB. It's a beautiful thing, and it's definitely gonna help me once I start missing baseball around Christmas time.
  22. *looks at 1995 World Series trophy* Welp. But in all seriousness, it's probably UGA's National Championship in 1980. Pretty much everyone involved with that 1980 team gets treated like a god, here. But as far as championships that I actually care about, it's that baseball trophy. We don't exactly have a trophy cabinet in this town.
  23. That, and I'm not a fan of the solid-colored waistband. If they went to a waistband stripe that was similar to what they wore during the prime of the Ewing-era and fixed those cuff stripes, their uniforms would be the best in the league. They're still very good, though.
  24. I actually like this. A lot. This is weird because I hated it the first time they tried this.
