This was a Patriots road game in 2019:

 

 

 

This is FedEx Field and it’s nothing out of the normal for a Redskins home game. I went to four games this past season:

 

49ers @ Redskins

Jets @ Redskins

Lions @ Redskins

Giants @ Redskins

 

Every game was 75-80% opposing team fans. It was pathetic and such an embarrassment as a Redskins fan to sit through.

In any tournament that’s single elimination it’s always possible to “fluke” your way to a championship

 

That's true... but when the team that wins was the #1 seed and won 13 regular-season games, it's really hard to call that a "fluke".  It's not like an 8 seed winning the Stanley Cup because their goalie "stood on his head".

 

Why do they say that goalies stand on their heads?  Is that even possible on ice?

2nd most valuable team and second highest revenue and operating income in the NFL. People are buying more of their stuff than anyone except the Cowboys. Seems pretty popular to me.

I feel like the most forgettable team in the league is the Jaguars. Only reason they've gained some following is their 2017 playoff run and playing in London every year.

 

Let's be honest, who cares about the Jaguars?

And me, seeing as how I was with them from the start. (As amazing as it is, I've run across a few Jaguars fans up here in the northern plains--definitely wasn't expecting that.)

i wouldnt categorize changing the number font as a minor change, as the number is literally plastered all over the chest, back and shoulders.

Kinda depends on situation.. when the Rams debuted their 2000's look, it had a standard block font for the first year.. then they updated only the number font, and it went largely unnoticed..

It was noticed, because screened on replicas had the right numbers but the actual on field jerseys didn't for that first year.

The story goes that when the NHL revoked its rule that goalies must remain on their feet while making a save, Frank Calder said "As far as I'm concerned, they can stand on their head if they want."

 

This comes across extremely apocryphal to me, but that's where it supposedly comes from.

Wait... There used to be a rule that goalies couldn't leave their feet?  What the hell?

I want to say it grew out of saying "he did everything but stand on his head," but then one half of the phrase was lost to time while the other end hung on, such that it doesn't make any sense on its own. See also: "happy as a clam at high tide"

How are you basing that it went "largely unnoticed"?  In the absence of sites like this, and the inability to get instant feedback on any design change, it seems like a tough assertion to make.  I, for one, definitely noticed - especially since IIRC they were unveiledd with the new font, sold as replicas with the new font, and the block font inexplicably ended up on the game jerseys.

Is that where the term "stand-up goalie" vs "butterfly goalie" came from?  Did going to your knees constitute 'leaving your feet'?  Or does that mean that they just didn't want goalies diving like outfielders trying to snag line drives, or jumping and doing karate kicks to stop pucks going for the wide-side of the net?

and me as well...FYI just because the organization is pretty terrible and the team inept in the sport, doesn't mean they don't have support or folks don't care. We would just rather our NFL team to win more than just over 40 games in a decade, and maybe 4 postseason wins since the start of the millenium isn't acceptable.  2017 isn't good enough

I'll be honest and said I never knew about this until right now.  Had to google to check for myself.  I guess I always picture the 2001 team in my head.

For the record, the Detroit Lions would kill for that resume. (For those unfamiliar, it's one playoff win since 1957. One. One. Since 1957. 1957. Lions' fans are kind of hard to describe.)

As a Lions fan, y'all got any more of these playoff wins? We can definitely switch...
