I'm sure its a very scientific poll, broken up by demographics.


How about this? They are on sportsnation, thus they are sports fans. They are from Louisiana by their location data. I'd think sports fans from Louisiana is about as important a demographic as there is.

There's no Navy in that any way, which I expect to be the primary color.

It's like someone handing you a piece of toast that's burnt black. When you don't eat it, they say "well, it's better than burnt horse shit!" like it somehow makes it more palatable.

Okay, so you think it is slightly better than what you call the worst name in sports. Great. The excitement builds.

I can't even take credit for it. I added it, but I think it was tehChampion that posted out the glaring similarities.

Ok you win. I'm done with this. I just don't have the energy to argue about this when literally nothing that is said will convince you otherwise.

Have fun.

I'm not sure why the maker of that didn't include any navy at all, even navy piping would make it less McD. Main point is that it looks slick and tons less cracker jack than the recent rebrands and redos.

Shortening: Celtics go to C's, not Cels. So P's? There are ways to nickname your nickname without shortening to something stupid once, then saying it's impossible to do otherwise. Lakers become . . . what? Oh, nothing?

Poll: There was a poll taken. They asked one person. Tom Benson. People's tastes are their own, but people need to accept, on some level, all the costs and benefits it is of having him as an owner.

Dealing with it and supporting it are entirely different ballgames.
