  1. The thing is some people quoted his worthless post before you got to it, so unless it is changed in all the subsequent quotes, it is still there for anyone to read. As admin of my own private forum, I've made that oversight myself.
  2. Read your last post (three above mine that you criticized) before getting on me for being "off topic."
  3. Apples and oranges. One state's As don't necessarily mean the same as another's. Just to stay on topic, Union HS in the Clarion area of Western PA also uses the Miami "U" and uniform template (the ones before the most recent ones.) That is not on topic either. Lets now get back to chief's problem That's really funny coming from you.

  5. The whole reason for stirrups in the first place is no longer valid, so if players went back to them, they would be doing so just for the sake of being 'retro.' Stirrups were meant to replicate colored socks, so just wear colored sock.
  6. Word "on the street" (actually two very credible Phila. sports writers that I'm friends with and speak to Gillick regularly) is that it hasn't been 100% decided if Manual will be fired, but if he is (and he clearly should be) John Russel is the heir apparent. Gillick has a good personal relationship with Pinella, but ownership probably won't allow him to spend over $1m on a manager, so it looks like it will be Russel.
  7. Piping and pinstripes do not work well together under ANY circumstances.
  8. That is one of the stupidest things I've read on these boards. Laughing at someone with a mental illness that is obviously feeling a lot of pain would be like laughing at someone with ALS or another dabilitating (sp?) disease. Let's try to show some maturity here, kids.
  9. The dipper kind of looks like someone spilled something on the jersey... Maybe reduce the sleeve stripes to just elastic trim (that way they can stay consistent three-stripes like the helmet and pants) and move the dipper to the sleeve? Outline the stars in white on the green, and green on the white.
  10. While I'm not a fan of the contrasting shoulders on the dark jersey, I think the white set has tons of potential. Reverse the blue / gold on the shoulder / sleeve of the white jersey, so that the horn will match the helmet, and the shoulder won't contrast as much. Make the pants stripe a single gold stripe (like the Steelers' black stripe, only slightly thinner) so it mimics the helmet as well. I'm cool with either number font, and I like the R in the collar.
  11. Mis-matched cap / jersey? Are you serious? Please, no colored alt for the Phillies. Thank you.
  12. Another way fantasy football changes the way people think of players. Good thing for you his game-losing OT drop didn't result in a -1,000,000 point penalty for him.
  13. I think the flat numbers just make the wordmark pop more. I usually don't like it when the numbers and wordmark are the same font or style (though in that case the numbers should be basic block, not a toatlly different attention-grabbing style of their own.)
  14. That's the best Philadelphia accent I've heard in my entire life! Huh? What? I'm curious about your comment about the accent. Just looking for a little elaboration.

  17. Note - "most derided jersey" doesn't mean "jersey you hate the most." Since I've been a member of the boards, I don't think I've seen a logo as derided as the Slug. For uniforms, it would probably be the Gray Jays, though the Bills and Mooterous are contenders as well.
  18. To be consistant with your away and alts, the side gussets and shoulders on the home should match. I'd recommend green, not white. Also, go with white numbers w/ contrasting trim on the home and away. The third would look way better with blue sides / shoulders and white numbers w/ green trim. Edit - the more I look at it, either rework the stripes or lose the side panels. The stripes scream traditional, while the panels scream contemporary. I don't think they can really coexist here. Far from the best Canucks concept I've seen, but also far from the worst. Keep at it.
  19. Hmm..... Maybe to deferentiate the regular from the throwback, as well as introduce some consistancy between the helmet and the rest of your uni package, try working the helmet stripe into the jersey / pants. On the silver pants, try blue-silver-blue. On the blue pants, either have a single silver stripe (probably better option), or silver-blue-silver-blue-silver. On the white jerseys, have a side-panel with blue-silver-blue that would flow into the pants, and on the blue jerseys, maybe a thin silver stripe, or something like my other option for the blue pants (though that may be a bit busy for a side panel.) I get that you are trying to go traditional here, but this could be a good opportunity to fix the inconsistancy, while adding to the plain "charm" of your throwback.
  20. He carried the team on his back in the '04 playoffs, almost single handedly getting them to the cup finals. Prior to that, he was pretty much despised in Phila. for sucking, and costing us Brind'Amour, who is still loved here to this day. It could be argued that Lindros forced the Brind'Amour trade, but either way, nobody was going to love the player that we got back.
