  1. Oh Geeze wrong thread.
  2. I leave for a few months and everything here changes.... and my post count is down to 1,000??  I NEED MY FAKE INTERNET POINTS BACK!!!

    1. Odd.

      Odd.

      Happened to me too when the boards changed. I had around 1100 posts and it boosted me up to 1950 posts. Doesn't really matter to me, though.

  5. Log in after a couple of weeks to see everything has changed and I had to reset my password in order to log on. Neat.

  6. As long as it's just the tip of the system that slides over, you guys will be fine.
  7. Highlights of my life: 26 years old Home owner mortgage payer work for the Alberta Government work in law enforcement have strong family bond volunteers for my community pay taxes licensed my dog university education paid for my car successful long term relationship Too dumb to understand article, or OP's post.... voted anyway. (Sarcasm aside, if you're of legal age and care about what happens with your tax dollars, the environment, the military or even transit.... VOTE!)
  8. I've gotten: 2: Impark tickets 4: DPS tickets Five years after my last ticket I still haven't even gotten as much as a letter or phone call from either company and I haven't been fired from my law enforcement job. PRO TIP: When parking in a paid parking garage, always park on the top floor. Sure you gotta walk a bit more, but no tow-truck is gonna get past that low clearance! (If your tickets are from the city, government, etc. PLEASE pay those!!)
  9. Fixed - article originally had the wrong dates posted.
  10. The National Hockey League appears poised for radical changes to its team jerseys in the wake of a deal that may pave the way for advertising on team uniforms. Adidas has won a long-term deal to make uniforms for the 30 NHL teams, beginning in the 2017-18 season. Adidas takes over from its corporate cousin Reebok, a sports brand owned by Adidas. For Adidas, the NHL deal is a big, if curious, win. The company beat out rivals Under Armour and Bauer Hockey for the NHL jersey contract, three people familiar with the matter told TSN. The NHL’s deal with Reebok pays the league about $35 million per season, a source said. The new deal with Adidas will see the rights fee double, the source said. Both the NHL and Adidas declined to comment. A source said the agreement would be formally announced in mid-September. It's unclear whether the NHL will receive a cut of revenue from jersey sales or if it's a straight rights-fee arrangement. A source told TSN that the deal would surely mean big changes to uniform designs, perhaps with Adidas’s familiar three-stripe trademark being added to some or all team jerseys. “The NHL might not want big changes like that, but for the money Adidas will pay, they’ll be pretty aggressive pushing to make the NHL jerseys identifiable with their brand,” the source said. It's believed that Adidas will also produce jerseys for the eight teams that will play in next year's World Cup of Hockey, although that could not be confirmed. Moving to a new jersey supplier may be a natural transition for the NHL to begin introducing on-jersey advertising, several league sources told TSN. During a meeting of NHL team presidents in New York last year, league officials estimated they might raise $4 million per team – or $120 million annually – by allowing corporate sponsors to put their logos front and centre on jerseys. “If you’re already deciding on a major NHL jersey overhaul, maybe with Adidas striping on the jerseys, then it seems like it would be a good time to introduce the ads, if you plan to do it anyway,” a league source told TSN. Adidas has already been quietly preparing for the new hockey contract. This summer, Edmonton Oilers phenom Connor McDavid filmed a commercial to promote the brand. Adidas also hopes to feature Sidney Crosby in its marketing plans. Crosby has an endorsement agreement with Reebok that expires at the end of August and his agents have been negotiating with Adidas. The NHL deal is somewhat curious because it wasn’t too long ago that Adidas said it would move away from league partnerships. In March, Adidas announced it was quitting its partnership with the National Basketball Association after 11 years. The company said at the time that it would instead emphasize new products and sponsor individual players, Bloomberg News reported at the time. In 2014, Adidas signed deals with four of the top six NBA draft picks, including Canadian Andrew Wiggins. In June, Nike announced an eight-year agreement with the NBA worth a reported $1 billion. In 2012, Adidas’s Reebok unit lost the right to produce National Football League jerseys to Nike. Adidas has struggled to boost its sales in the competitive North American sport market, particularly against dominant Nike. Overall, Adidas has global sales of $14 billion (U.S.) and a global market share of 10.5 per cent, compared to $36 billion and 15.9 per cent for Nike. Adidas has increased its marketing budget by more than 25 per cent, Reuters reported in March, and the company has put a new emphasis on the U.S., the world's top sportswear market. Investment analysts have speculated for several years that Adidas plans to sell off the struggling Reebok unit. While Adidas bought Reebok in 2006, Reebok has since been repositioned as a fitness brand, perhaps suggesting its ties to the NHL no longer make sense even if Adidas rejects calls from investors to sell Reebok. http://www.tsn.ca/talent/adidas-lands-nhl-jersey-deal-1.346839 -------- Looks like AD's and jersey re-designs are coming (again). Just when I was getting used to the Reebok ones! *Fixed error where article had wrong year
  11. U2 Elevation was pretty good in my opinion. Fit in well with the streets have no name intro.
  12. Hail Santa!
  13. The loss of a Brother is always tough. Constable Daniel Woodall, 35, was shot and killed while executing an arrest warrant for criminal harassment. The gunman also shot another EPS Sergeant who has been hospitalized. Constable Woodall has served the Edmonton Police Service for the past 8 years. He previously served for the Greater Manchester Police in the England. He is survived by his wife and 2 young children. All of us in Alberta Corrections are greiving with the EPS. I'm glad the POS died in the fire, one less 'freeman' to worry about.
  14. Last NFS game I played was high stakes (NFS 4) so I hope it's as fun as that one was!
