    NHL 2018-19

    I was actually thinking about this the other day. As you pointed out, everyone is watching the games in color, so why not embrace color on color matchups? The only challenge I can see is how to schedule each team in order to avoid having to take multiple jerseys on the road. My understanding is we ended up with dark uniforms at home because the vast majority of third jerseys were dark, and teams wanted to wear them at home. It got to the point that it was easier to just have the visiting team wear white as that was the most consistent. Logisticaly the easiest thing to do would be for the traveling team to set their travel color for a particular set of away games, and the home team pick their jersey color accordingly. However, this would require quite a bit of coordination and would have the home team deferring to the visiting team.
  3. They do look like yoga pants in that picture. The teal pants with no stripes isn't a great look to me, I'm not sure what the people singing it's praises see in it.

    The piping looked bad even when it fit the uniform as intended.

  6. No reason for the sass, the "yoga pant/leotard look" has been covered ad nauseum on these boards.

    The fact that New England won is a testament to how good they are. I've lost count of how many times people have said they were dead in the water only for the Pats to come back and prove people wrong. I'm sure that Kansas City will be fine though.

    Their point was Jacksonville was inspired by the broader philosophy of traditional uniforms being simplistic. The specifics of what Jacksonville got right or wrong is irrelevant. Those examples work fine.

    Looks like the lightened blue, I like the contrast with the maroon. But so far only the new “LMU” as a new athletic mark? Will there be more coming?

    Those examples don’t work IMO. They have better color distribution.

    But as you say, only a few owners would be in a position to pull that kind of move. That seems less likely than the upside.

    MLB x Nike Aeroswift - Houston Astros (6/30)

    Thank you very much. Here they are! For the Astros I brought back the Tequila Sunrise in the same styla than the White Sox's chestband, using the current script straightened as wordmark. While in the home design the front design pops up, in the home what stands out is the sleeve pattern.

    What is the rarest color in sports?

    When compared to blue, red, white, black, and yellow, it’s not even close, especially since a lot of the times orange and green are used as accent colors, or only used on alternates versus the others which a far more likely to be base colors

    What most don't comprehend with respect to MLS is that its 'expansion process' isn't one in the traditional sense, due to its single entity structure. They can call it an expansion process if they want, but what they're doing is searching for partners to admit into their LLC - basically a capital call, only trying to raise it from outside sources rather than from within. Precourt acquired one of the "A/E" memberships in MLS as I mentioned earlier. I'd love to see that contract as well, but MLS' operating agreement doesn't give him the right to relocate a team unilaterally, member or no. That's only accomplished by a supermajority vote of the members, and I'm guessing he didn't have, and wasn't going to get, the votes. Under the terms of the operating agreement this created something of a stalemate in that you have an LLC member who has a right to operate a team in a certain market, but who's telling his partners after a certain date, he's refusing to do so. So as a company MLS had five options: Let Precourt continue as an "A/E Member" and go to Austin. But again, he didn't have the votes for that move. Terminate his "A/E" membership for cause and buy him out. But the LLC doesn't have the cash to do that; the 'expansion' scratch they're getting - the $150 million from Cincinnati and Nashville, isn't coming in chunky style. It's coming in installments. Find someone to buy out Precourt and his "A/E" membership. That they did, but Precourt had to be willing to sell, and he wasn't. Allow Precourt to move to Austin in exchange for trading in his "A/E" membership for a new class of membership (Orlando City is MLS' "Class J" member, so I'm not sure what letter designation it'd be up to now). MLS would then either (i) sell the "A/E" membership to Haslam, or (ii) sell the "A" membership to Haslam and terminate the "E" membership. (confused yet?) Issue Haslam the new "Class X" (or whatever) membership, and draft a separate agreement allowing Precourt to operate his "A/E" membership in Austin. If the partners of MLS were smart, they took Option 4, as it would terminate one of the Class E memberships it had to sell to current members to raise capital back when the league was teetering on the edge of disaster. The history of this will read that Austin got an expansion franchise. The technical reality of that may be true, or that Haslam got an expansion franchise and Precourt got to move. In retrospect this could be a win-win or a lose-lose. It could be win/win from the perspective that it sends a message to the other partners in the LLC: unless we decide otherwise, you are where you are. It also allows MLS to plausibly pare back its 4-team expansion to the 2 it's already chosen, arguing that Miami and Austin took up the slots they'd intended. But it could be a lose/lose in that from this the partners glean that if they choose to move, they can hold their partners hostage and ultimately get what they want - and that thanks to this precedent, the end result could be unwanted expansion. That's not a business partnership I'd be terribly comfortable being in.

    What is the rarest color in sports?

    How rare are green and orange? I feel like I've seen a lot of international teams using green. Even orange isn't as rare as I once thought.

    What is the rarest color in sports?

    Pink, it’s used some internationally, but it’s far and few between, purple and brown have to be next, with green and then orange bringing up the bottom 5 used colors

    @SabresRule7361 doing his best to make you hate anti-Patriots fans as much as you hate Patriots fan.

    What is the rarest color in sports?

    I was thinking purple, too. But you've got the Rockies, the Lakers, the Vikings, the Kings (for a time). It's rare, but still seen across many of the big leagues.

    2018 NFL Season

    It's not like other teams aren't trying. KC didn't go out there expecting to let the Pats score on a late game drive to win it all. Also the Eagles beat them in the G-ddamn Super Bowl. What do you WANT, exactly? First off, what do you want? For Brady to just not try and win? Come on now. Secondly? I gave up on the Tom Brady hate train a long time ago because I realized it was pointless. Not in a "the Pats will win anyway so I might as well bow down" sense, but more in a "I might as well enjoy a generational talent" sense. I realized that if I stripped away the sports-hate? Tom Brady is just this generation's Joe Montana. Would I have hated Montana and the 49ers if I were alive and watching the NFL back in the 80s? Probably! The fact that I wasn't, however, means that I can have an outsider's perspective looking back. I can look back at Montana's career without sports-hate clouding my judgment. I can appreciate Montana's career for what it was. It was when I realized this that I realized that hating Tom Brady and the Patriots was pointless. Say I was born in 2017, and not 1987. I would grow up being able to appreciate what Brady and the Pats did without that sports-hate getting in the way. So I decided to stop being a curmudgeon. I can just appreciate the best QB of his time and the best team of the past 15+ years do what they do. Do I still prefer if they lose? Yeah. Do I still root for my Chargers to beat them? Yep. Would I ever get a Brady jersey? Not on your life. I'm just not gonna sit here and be bitter about the fact that I got to watch a generational talent do generational talent things as a fan. I mean I only caught the tail end of Gretzky and Jordan's respective careers. Why let stupid sports-hate stop me from appreciating Brady's career?
  24. Baseball has only one predominately green team. But green is pretty common in football, basketball, hockey, etc. Brown is another color that I don't see too often at the professional level, but a lot of college teams will use it. What is the rarest color in sports? Not counting one-off promotions or throwbacks. I'm talking day-to-day color schemes. Would it be pink?

    Interesting Sports Facts and Statistics

    And let's not ignore an Astros vs. Brewers World Series would be between the two teams that switched leagues. (The Astros have the distinction of being the only team to ever appear in the World Series representing both leagues. The Brewers can pull this off too should they advance). Unfortunately, neither will have the distinction of winning a championship from both leagues (Brewers lost in '82 as the AL team, Astros lost in '05 as the NL team).

    Another fact... the NL East is the only of the current six divisions that has never hosted either team. Both have been members of the AL West, and NL Central. The Brewers were in the AL East and AL Central. The Astros have been in the NL West.
