Unfortunately, Jawn is making its way west to Pittsburgh. It’s always spelled John here when I see it written, so I had to research jawn.

Pittsburgh can't have it. Sorry.

 

Too late...I remember hearing that word used in Pittsburgh as early as 2005. (And yeah, it was spelled "john" back then, too.)

 

That said, I've yet to hear it used outside of Pennsylvania--except when I catch myself saying it...

Second year doing it. Last year, I want to say 12-20 squads with less games. This year maybe 2-3 times that with much games with those identities. It was easy to miss last year. Next year, we may see even more. My area is eating these alternative identities up. I personally hate it. I liked it as a quick one off last year for a select few games. Now they’re consuming teams real identities.

Third year, actually.

Are you saying it’s a rip off? There’s some similarities (chin and cheek shape, ear highlight), but plenty different enough. The original designer might beg to differ though.

June 27, 2019 - 15:08 PM

Back in February of this year, CBC/Sportsnet NHL analyst and noted fun-hating old guy Don Cherry took issue with the Carolina Hurricanes’ penchant for creative celebrations, and famously called the team a “bunch of jerks.” The Hurricanes, whose previous claim […]

Hi, guy with the IP para girlfriend, here. She said if the original designer had a good firm, they could probably get it before a judge, but all it would be is a way to waste your money. She guarantees no lawyer in her firm would be willing to take the case.

Having two teams in the same state with the same name is redundant.  Especially if the parent club reps the whole state.  See Yankees and Mets.

I see these seemingly screen printed jerseys on the auction block a lot. How’s the general quality? They all look more like t shirts, yet they are bought up pretty quickly

 

The gimmicks will continue as long as we let them.
