Fate of Chicago Machine[edit]

Hi. Do you follow pro Major League Lacrosse ? because I do not. But I read the [Ohio Machine] article as explaining that the Chicago Machine ORGANIZATION settled in Rochester even as an expansion team in Ohio team picked up the NAME "Machine." So I disambiguated "Chicago Machine' to Rochester rather than Ohio. What is your understanding? thanks Hugh (talk) 17:03, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

My undertanding of it based off the MLL website is that they consider the current Roch Rattlers ( who had been Chicago) to be a continueation of the old Rochester Rattlers who moved to Toronto in 2008? My understanding is that at least in some of the press releases they tie to current Ohio Machine to the Chicago Machine ( why they do that i haven't a clue) it really is confusing, I kind of gave up on the MLL when they started to do that.

Thanks for your reply. I think I will cross-post this issue on the Chicago Machine disambiguation page, maybe we can attract an answer from a die-hard pro lacrosse fan. Hugh (talk) 17:46, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

another way to do it is just create Chicago Machine (MLL) Smith03 (talk) 18:16, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

NASL Indoor[edit]

thanks for the kudos. i loved the NASL (indoor and out) as a kid and want to do my part to keep known and accurate. unfortunately i have no info on the 1983 grand prix at the moment. but that doesn't mean i wont run across it at some point. i know that between 1977 and 1979 some "minor" cups and competitions were held. individual teams would sponsor them. even though NASL teams participated the league didn't officially sanction them like 1975, 1976 and the 1980s. i also read that there was something back in 1971 possibly NASL sanctioned, that Dallas won. until i can find more info on it, i'm hesitant to devote a separate page to it. specifically, i grew up a Rowdies fan and the local newspapers gave them amazing coverage with vivid accounts (often times they even had the box scores). so if Tampa Bay was involved, it actually makes the research and sourcing a bit easier. for instance, if i was so inclined i could write a detailed page on both the '75 and '76 indoor regionals in St. Petersburg. i really wish i could get a bit more info on the other regions, because there's some stuff i'd like to include on the existing pages, but i'd like to give equal time to each region. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Creativewill (talkcontribs) 15:45, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

NASL Indoor Arenas[edit]

I don't have a full list. I see that you've done so for the 1983-84 season. Since 83-84 had so few teams and was part of the NASL's last hurrah, I think it enhances that particular page. But doing so might clutter say, the 1980-81 season, which had 19 teams. In general it makes more sense to me to include that kind of info in the various teams' own wiki page and esp in their info-box. I haven't checked for that info specifically. How about you?--Creativewill (talk) 15:25, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

It seems spotty at best some teams have it most do not Smith03 (talk) 16:50, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Correct Dates for Min vs Mem indoor series?[edit]

First of all many thanks for digging up those attendance figures, as I'm always happy to see things fully filled out. With regard to the date of that first match in the indoor semi-final series: I double checked several NPs and all seem to point to a 2/23 match date, which makes me think that the media guide has the typo. I even checked NPs from the surrounding days as well. This link for example from 2/23/80 [1] (go to page 15 and zoom in on the upper right of the page) lists the game as taking place that afternoon. Since it was your edit, I'll let you decide which way to go on this. Again thanks for all your help on these pages. Creativewill (talk) 17:47, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Chicago and Ohio Machine Merger[edit]

I have made a formal merger proposal on Talk:Chicago Machine (MLL) if you would like to participate in the discussion. (Bes2224 (talk) 18:59, 10 August 2013 (UTC))

Proposed move[edit]

It has been proposed that Ottawa RedBlacks be renamed and moved to Ottawa Redblacks at Talk:Ottawa_RedBlacks. As you have commented on this article's name before, you may be interested in voting on the proposal. Regards, Ground Zero | t 13:48, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Date on NAIA championship[edit]

The 2013 NAIA Football National Championship was a 16-team tournament that spanned from November 23 through December 21, as the article it links to shows. True, the final game was played in one day but the whole championship was much broader. I have no idea why some of the older championships give a date, but that is likely because no article has been written for the entire tournament yet--or possibly, there was no tournament and simply two teams were picked. If you have questions, please let me know. And thanks for interest and enthusiasm on NAIA football!--Paul McDonald (talk) 03:11, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Your thoughts[edit]

Metrodome[edit]

I'm not going to revert, but for me, it's not about not liking corporate names on stadiums. Please don't assume motives. The fact is that only the field was the MOA field. The building was never the MOA field...even if they did add titles to the dome. --Onorem (talk) 01:46, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

    • I notice on a few stadium pages on Wikipedia a desire to avoid the corp name. I wasn't implying the specific person, but just in general a view that seems to show up from time to time. I recall back when candlestick park in SF was 3com park people want the page name candlestick. I notice the page for the 2000 Olympic stadium in Sydney uses the orginal name instead of the official corp bought name Smith03 (talk) 01:50, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
      • I'm not sure what your point is. The name of the building is/was HHH Metrodome. The MOA bought naming rights to the field that the Vikings played on. They didn't buy rights to change the name of the stadium. That would have required a legislative act. Some people might not like corporate sponsors, but that's not the issue here. --Onorem (talk) 01:54, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
      • I am well aware the stadium name was not change. I live in Minnesota I added if you look at edit history a note that the stadium was also called moa field etc. yesterday another user reversed that using your argument about the stadium. I am not suggesting the page be moved. I just believe that in the opening para an acknowledgement of the name that was used for the last 5 seasons of the stadium by the main tenant. so I added that information back in.
        • Who said anything about moving the page? Never mind. Please don't answer. It's too hard to understand what you're actually trying to say. Good night. --Onorem (talk) 02:05, 19 February 2014 (UTC

I am not sure why you stuck your nose it in the first place good night yourself

Sorry. I guess I have one more response in me. I stuck my nose "it in" the first place because you are wrong. Your reversion was wrong. That you can't see why isn't my fault. Night. --Onorem (talk) 02:12, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

why is it wrong to add correct information to a page? oh never mind with a response we won't agree good night and pleasant dreams

As an admin, you are expected to know how BRD works. You boldly added something to the lead sentence of the Metrodome article. I reverted, because it was wrong, so now we discusss, not continue to revert. As it happens, this issue has been discussed at great length on the talk page, which I invite you to now visit. I will copy one thing from that here, which illustrates the issue:
