  1. Technically, I'm nearly certain that the Eagles haven't gone monochrome since the uniform update in '03. They've gone green/black/green, but not green/green/green.
  2. Wasn't it only a few years ago that the pylons were moved to out of bounds instead of inside the end-zones? It doesn't make a lot of sense that grazing the outside of the pylon should count for being in bounds. Credit the offensive players for knowing the rule and how to exploit it.
  3. Eagle fans - please don't cry about the referees. Don't make us look like every other bitching whining fan that thinks their team is above reproach and the only way they can lose is if there is some conspiracy afoot. The referees didn't cost the birds the game. Andy Reid did. From the outset, it was obvious that he regained control of the play calling from Marty, which pretty much negated all of the positive strides he has taken as a coach and leader in the past six weeks. As a nation, I ask that you don't 1- criticize the referees for this one 2- take anything away from the Saints. We all feel that Andy Reid cost us the game, but in reality he cost us a legit shot to win the game. It still could have gone either way (though I'm sure we all were leaning to one side.)
  4. Andy Reid should be stripped of his headset and clipboard once the clock reads 2:00 or less. You go for it on 4 and 10, and make it. The penalty makes it 4 and 15. Is it THAT big of a difference? If the Saints get a first down, it's over. It doesn't matter at what point on the field they get that first down. If you go for it and don't make it, you are still in basically the same spot you are in if you punt. Congrat's to the Saints for not giving up, and winning the game. I can't help but think that Andy Reid either lost the Eagles the game, or at least didn't give them a shot to win.
  5. Two of my favorite goalie masks were Chico Resch's and Beezer's Flyers masks, because they had two logos meeting in the middle. I think it is kind of cool to see the winged P reversed.
  6. Forget that it is "for the Bills." That color scheme is downright fantastic for a football team. I don't really like a lot of things about your concept, most notably the Broncos pants stripes and the funky Vikings-esque transitions from jersey side-panel to pants-stripes, but with a few minor tweaks, this could be a great fantasy concept. The Buffaslug logo does look better on a helmet, but as a logo, it still sucks. One suggestion - if you are skilled enough (or if someone can help you out) extend the "tail" to the rear-center of the helmet, so the logos almost "connect" (think Seahawks) in the back. That would give the logo even more of a sense of movement or "explosion" (I guess I'm trying to say it would make it more dynamic?) Just do it.
  7. BBTV hates darks at home. Every Flyers game looks like it's on a black and white TV. BRING BACK THE COLORED ROADS!!!
  8. Players back in the 70s and 80s took greenies all the time, and many (including Mike Schmidt) admitted it. I don't really like Bonds, but if we chastise(sp?) him for this, don't we also have to hate on nearly every star from the past? I'm not very educated on greenies, but isn't it really the equivilant of taking a bunch of caffiene pills, or drinking a lot of Red Bull?
  9. Have you seen them play? Even with AI and Webber? They didn't have to try to tank it, they just plain sucked. They didn't have a choice with either player - AI needed to go, and Webber is borderline cripple and wanted out. They did the best they could to work for the future. They would have been in contention for a top lottery pick regardless of what happened. If anything, the moves had more to do with getting cap flexibility than a better draft pick.
  10. It's going to be really funny when they don't win the lottery this year. What's this supposed to mean? What does this have to do with the lottery?
  11. Including the money for this season, he's going to get roughly $37 million to just go away. I can't blame the player, but I'll say the system sucks, and (more importantly) Billy King sucks. Of course Comcast can just charge everyone a dollar more for cable to afford this.
  12. Actually, the only football he should be allowed to watch would be NFL Network broadcasts. Listening to Bryant Gumble is so tortuous it is nearly inhumane.
  13. Is the "New York" in the names of the NY sports teams (Yankees, Mets, Knicks, etc.) a regional name? Or is the "official" name of New York City just "New York", and the city is added by people just to make a distinction? I got thinking about this with all the talk of teams moving to Oklahoma City and Kansas City. Why aren't the Knicks the New York City Knicks?
  14. Got'cha. I just responded to the text of your post without looking at the updated image. Looks better now.
  15. Why? The Eagles starting QB has never been the holder. The previous holder was punter Dirk Johnson. Backup QBs make good holders because the other team at least respect the possibility of a fake pass.
  16. Well the effect is supposed to be the "27" glowing, standing out from the rest, because of the fact that he's now in Heaven. The problem is that it only looks like the 2 is glowing, not the 7. I thought it would look better without the glow, but if that is what you want, maybe more glow should be applied to the 7.
  17. The state logo makes a poor helmet logo because it can't be reversed, as you unintentionally proved with the way you displayed your alt. helmet.
  18. The "2" of "27" on his jersey has a glow on it, and that is where my eye seems to want to go when I look at it. It should be flat like the 7,
  19. I HATE the Flyer's black jersey. It looks like I'm watching a black-and-white TV when they are at home. At the very least, makes the sleeves orange, or add an orange/white stripe to the breezers or something. Better yet, just go back to the orange jersey. It screamed 70s/80s, but at least has COLOR!!! Back to the topic at hand - I love the Sharks' set, though the shiny was better. The black jersey is nice because it incorporates the fin, but it still needs more color in it. They just look too damn black (not in a racial sense, so calm down Greg! - j/k) The stripes are not enough.
