    In my opinion, Scott Van Pelt is the best thing they put out. I could listen to him and Rusillo talk 8 hours a day. The only other thing I love on ESPN is Sports Reporters. Everything else, you have to take it as it is.

    Edit: Add in Van Pelt, he's great and I like Bill Simmons actually. It really is a sports MTV though. They will break stories not knowing if they're true or not...they lack integrity and disguise it with suits.

    I do remember that they used to be somewhat respectable. When they added "Not Top Ten" i officially gave up on ESPN becoming watchable again (the anchors think they are quirky when in fact they are annoying). Its just this stupid reality tv bull**** that influences them to act like morons. Sports are not supposed to be funny (they fail at trying 99 percent of the time). Having said that: i want more javale mcgee bloopers!!!

    I actually think sports are hilarious, and sports humor is my favorite type of humor. I loved when old Sportscenter anchors like Eisen and Patrick made jokes. The new crop just isn't as strong.

    I had a picture in mind that would be a great "teaser" ad for a "New Orleans Angels/Angels of New Orleans" rebrand. I'm no bigdub, I ripped an old Saints slogan off, and I threw it together in under five minutes, but I think you get the idea.

    Nice job. I am digging this new idea. I think you're right about the other pro team thing. There's no overlap and this could be pretty cool.

    I think I finally have a uniform design that I like. I want something that other players in the league look at and go "I want to play in that uniform...and know what hot sausage tastes like!"

    I think that's the image we're trying to avoid...

    What happened to that?

    Pretty much! Think of it along the lines of the Seahawks but without the ugly! I'm just really looking for something design wise thats pushes the envelope just enough that's it's not so over the top. A basketball has minimal space to work with so design wise you have to be aware of how much is too much and so forth.

    I think that's the image we're trying to avoid...
    Maybe I chose the wrong phrase but you get my point! But you have to admit that players love to eat our food and actually look forward to it when coming here. Patton's, Bachemin's hot sausage with grits and onions, on a po-boy or bun is like nothing else!

    So something like this?
    So when did you hack into my system?

    Post it man!
    I wish I could. I think that I might break it into a bunch of puzzle pieces, pm the image to random ppl on HR and see if you all can come up with the final image!

    I'm guessing a modern look? Is it Seahawks colors? Can you atleast tell us the colors?

    Angels, but with some flash.

    The colors are gold, silver and navy. It's a darker blue than what I used in the original logo. I used the same blue but it's two different sheen's on the material to give it contrast. The collar is different from what I have seen in the NBA. I've looked at all the teams and this is a hybrid collar if I had to call it anything. I have a few more tweaks to make here and there. Even if this wasn't my design, I'd still buy one!

    Uni Watch Site Updated

    The ESPN Uni Watch site has updated thier page with user submitted re-designs. Some of them are pretty cool. Nice to see different ideas from other areas.

    We need to be those Bull Frogs. They look awesome

    Some of those really looked cool. Bullfrogs, 2 of the Pelicans, and Dukes come to mind. Most, however, were awful.

    Links to coolish ones IMO:

    BullFrogs

    Dukes

    Demons

    Pelicans

    Knights

    Most of the others... Don't even bother with.
