  1. Don't know darkpiranha, though I'm familiar with the name. Don't care that he's gone. Don't know who most of the mods are anymore, or what they do on a day-to-day basis, but I love these disciplinary notices. There's a politically incendiary, racist train concept somewhere on CCSLC? Not going to lie - I'm intrigued . . . I mean if that description comes up in my Netflix recommendations, I'm going to check it out, hoping for something like Mel Gibson starring in an action comedy about Jefferson Davis fleeing to Danville. Anybody got a link to this blockbuster?
  2. I like the uniforms, but you lost me at the blue maple leaf. Red, gold, and green maple leaves are all naturally occurring, but blue maple leaves have about as much appeal as purple dinosaurs. I don't believe you could peddle an idea as absurd as blue maple leafs in a traditional Canadian hockey market.
  3. Yeah, they also wore the same style for the 2014 Women's U18 World Championships. The IIHF logo on the grey collar insert is an indication that they were official, tournament-issued sweaters, made by Tackla.
  4. Looks like you're thinking of SyPhi (sp?), who later changed his username to his actual name, Phil. Great guy from Winnipeg. Spyboy's from Minnesota, and runs the Third String Goalie blog. If you're into hockey sweaters, check it out.
  5. In the spirit of the Rough Riders, and best traditions of the CFL, why not GreenGolds?
  6. To me, the combination of the words 'Buffalo' and 'Sabres' evokes 1870's - 1880's U.S. Cavalry. Without knowing the truth of it, I've always figured that the Sabres wore blue and gold because they were the cavalry uniform colours of that era.
  7. Not saying you're wrong, generally speaking, but I don't think this one's on us. From what (admittedly little) I've read about it, this identity was designed by an American firm for American clients in an American league who happened to establish a franchise in Toronto.
  8. @pollux, I did the hard part and updated the logo for 2020, so now there's no excuse to not announce the immediate return of Logolympiad.
  9. Snowy here in Ottawa, eh? I guess you need that white space at the top, because the higher you push the blue section, and the longer you extend the stripes, the more American the crest looks. The concept posted by @spartacat_12 avoided that issue with better composition, I think, putting the blue at the base and the stripes in the upper section.
  10. I think it might be something similar to this Porsche crest, with the white center and border.
  11. Cool project. The presentation is awesome - loving the (hand-drawn?) goaltenders! I know you didn't design it, but I really like that monk from Munich's coat of arms. Nice choice!
  12. Nice clean update. Add me to the chorus wondering if a little touch of pink and green might make the northern lights stand out more.
  13. I think the original name-change feature/poll wasn't built into the forums, but was associated with the CCSLC's sim hockey site, which Yzerfan also built and maintained when it was on the same server as the forums. At some point, I believe Chris switched servers and the sim hockey site wasn't transferred with the forums, so the name-change feature was lost.
  14. Little late, but I just noticed this article naming @GMac as the prankster.
  15. Removed because we're bogging down the thread and neither one of us are adding anything to the conversation. If you want to continue the conversation, feel free to PM me.

  17. Fair enough. One week seems meaninglessly short to me, but I respect that you guys reached a different conclusion.
  18. Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticizing the call to suspend him. I simply believe that one week isn't long enough to serve as either an effective punishment or an effective deterrent. Seems kind of like a way to say you suspended him without really suspending him. If you really think somebody deserves a suspension, then you ought to really suspend them. If you don't think they deserve a significant suspension, then maybe they don't deserve a suspension at all. Perhaps there's a more fitting alternative, like a stern warning and the promise that continued misbehaviour will result in a meaningful suspension. I'm surprised to hear you say that you made the decision to suspend him based on factors other than the infraction. In all fairness, wouldn't you say that the decision to suspend somebody should be made strictly and solely based on the infraction or infractions?
  19. Not to say that a suspension shouldn't be taken seriously, but the length of suspension, one week, seems like the shortest possible that can be effectively imposed and still be realistically considered a suspension. Sure, you could suspend someone for a day, an hour, or a minute, but to what practical purpose? I don't know if this suspension is intended to be a deterrent or a punishment, but it doesn't seem long enough to be either, effectively. If BBTV did something significant enough to deserve a suspension, then he deserves a significant suspension. If the length of suspension isn't meaningful, then the suspension itself is meaningless. It seems pointless to suspend someone for so short a period that it serves as little more than a demonstration of your ability to suspend them. If the point is to give someone a warning, then give them a warning. Tell them they have one strike, and next time they'll be suspended for a significant amount of time. One week is next to nothing, and a one week suspension is practically pointless, not serious.
  20. One week? If he didn't do anything serious enough to warrant a serious suspension, is he seriously deserving of a suspension at all?
  21. While we're tiptoeing through that neighbourhood, I've been meaning to talk to you about your avatar, Glenn. I don't know who he is, but elderly, privileged white guys performing power salutes make me uncomfortable.
