I guess you shouldn't have brought it up then lol.

The most important thing we can take from this discussion is that we are approaching 110% certainty identifying Cal.

As far as the uni's I wish they made some more changes.

Nike got a sweet deal. The swoosh is now the logo that appears to be front and center. I wonder how long before we start seeing "stock car" uni's with sponsor's all over everything.

That's impossible. No one can give more than 100 percent. By definition that's the most any one can give.

You've managed to break the rule. They're tagging it the Cal-Wise phenomenon.

Is the logo all over the uni? I just saw it on the sleeve and hip of the pants. The Reebok logos were in the same place weren't they? I haven't seen an all angle pic yet. I hope those logo's aren't all over it.

In fact, most of the one I interact with regularly are fans of the team and agree anyone suing the team is overly sensitive and wasting their time and money. Take this how you want it, I'm not trying to sway opinions, just share my experiences...
Hey! You stay out of this and let us white folk decide what does and does not offend you. Capice?

Wasn't being serious, my pop culture knowledge-challenged friend.

As to you being full of it: I've mentioned the Skins nickame/logo debate - a "thing in the Skins world I'm sick of" - once in the last 4 or 5 years. How many times a week do you mention Kyle Shanahan or Dan Snyder, two things I'm fairly certain you're sick of?
So you mentioned you something that irritates you and now you're pissed people "Defenders of the Nickname" have questioned your opinion that you're allowed to post here. OK.

Like others have mentioned, you started a discussion on something that irritates you. So, you irritate yourself since you posted an opinion on a public forum.

The debate is more about the name than the logo even though there are people who want the logo changed. They are probably the same people that want the name changed.

I'm not pissed about anything. I just find the debate irritating. Anything that would make it go away would make me happy.
