Well done Jay, you've come a long way in a short amount of time. I voted for your concept here and the readers really seem to have gravitated to it as well. And check out the total number of votes cast (47). Those are higher than normal numbers. Thanks to everyone who took time to vote. We'll see Jay's concept in just over a month for the 4th Quarter Vote.

Well done Josiah. Oh look, another first time COTW winner. It's always great to see an artist break through and grab their first win. Whether it's a weekly vote or a competition, I love to see first time winners.

The new COTW nominees for the week of December 6-12 have been listed on the side of the page in the black poll. Click the link in the poll or go to the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK tab to view the nominated concepts. Voting ends on Friday at 11:59pm Eastern.

Hey Ryan, why are there only 3 concepts in the vote when 8 concepts were properly nominated and seconded? I'm glad you asked, you see whenever there are an abundance of properly nominated concepts I have the ability (as per the rules) to simplify a COTW vote. Typically I take only the concepts that were thirded and fourthed and so on and place them into the vote, as I have done this week.

When you read a post and see that the concept that you like has already been seconded for COTW, don't just walk away. Third and fourth and fifth those concepts to ensure they show up in the weekly votes!

Last night the Toronto Marlies were in Utica to play the Comets.

How beautiful is that game? It seems the Marlies are slowly moving towards making that jersey their full-time home sweater. That might mean a matching blue version. The Comets wore their awesome green alternates, which may not be just the best alternate jersey in the AHL, but the best jersey...period.
