    I don't know. Blacks are pretty good at basketball. Seriously though, the red jerseys are so much better than the whites. The white jerseys are fine, and I don't want them changed, but they can't hold a candle to the reds.

    Seriously just because you don't like stripes does not make them obsolete and should be done away with. They're never going away. Make peace with it.

    As I figure most of us know, the Flames unveiled a new third jersey that...is so okay it's average. The sunset/mountains/wheat patch, I love. The odd looking 5, yeh it looks weird. The yoke looking like a stereotypical cowboy's shirt, it's alright. The script is decent, but looking at those rejected ideas Icethetics got a shot of, it seems like a missed opportunity. As Mills Lane would say though, let's get it on. Main The simplified burning C caught my eye, and I wanted to see what it'd look like on a uniform. As I like their current number font, I thought it'd be a waste to not use it, though the red jersey uses gold numbers rather than black. I normally don't bother with helmets as far as hockey concepts go, even though I should, but I'm imagining red helmets here. Third Sue me, I liked the boot. Granted, the CALGARY is admittedly a bit messy, but the boot was simple enough to trace. Figured to differentiate this from the main reds, there'd be no black outlining, different pants shell, and obviously different striping. The horseshoe number was the final touch I'd wanted to add, but then came the problem of striping. Some of you may recall how I occasionally bitch about one of my older concepts, a Drummondville Voltigeurs set whose third jersey was said to look like "every other hockey jersey ever," as that was not a compliment, to put it mildly. The striping I went with is based on what I'd used for the Voltigeurs home/away, except the inner stripes on that version were vertical, here they're at a slight angle, somewhat mimicking the "podium stripe" of the late Fleury era. I'm thinking of making at least one more set here, though other than intending to use the regular C if I do so, I make no promises.

    Agenda? How? I just wanted to see what people's opinions were. I don't really care one way or the other. lol The Dolphins stripe is more modern. There are people who complain about the way that looks too. Agenda? How? You posed a question and when people answered differently than you wanted you began arguing with them. You wanted to see what people's opinions were and when they differed from yours you got defensive of your agenda. And it's clear you do care for one way over the other. lol

    They overheard Lamoriello talking about signing Keith Tkachuk to 42 over 6 with a no-trade and thought it best not to press the issue any further. Others in the Devils organization were worried he would again threaten to "make pee-pants," as he called it, like he did when Jagr wanted to wear a number over 50. Anyway, moving on from the "Lou Lamoriello is rapidly losing his faculties" meme, I'm not at all surprised that the Hawks put up a fight with their uniform. McDonough is pretty defensive of The Brand, having discontinued the 1996 blacks and the Winter Classic alternate once its purpose had been served. But it's no shock they ultimately lost out; this year's Blackhawks have had a lot of trouble stopping other people's power plays.

    They stopped playing for 1 season because of WW2 and returned to the same league. Way to use a apples to apples example. The mentioned Diamondbacks example also needs the caveat that MLB is disbanded, then 15 years later a new baseball league starts with all new teams in different cities, and then 10 years later the Diamondbacks join a rival league that is named MLB but has no affiliation with the previous MLB and is labeled as "minor league" by most everyone.

    I must say, after reading through 60+ pages as a lurker, your artwork was so good it forced me to make an account an post about these. About 90% (everyone has their nitpicks) of these are drop-dead fantastic. These are all excellent work.

    Every stolen base that draws a throw at 2nd or 3rd is a bang bang play that requires a tag. Every batter stretching a single to a double or triple that draws a throw is a bang bang play. This is what plays at the plate will begin to look like. Hardly game changing.

    I've just had a longer look at the logo definitely looks deliberately obscured, but it appears to be the same old logo. There's no muscled up HUgo which has been indicated thus far. Still not certain that this isn't just a retro design (with the wordmark not 100% accurate), but I have a strong hunch that this jacket has the wordmark that will be revealed this weekend. The wordmark rebrand reminds me of how the Knicks changed their wordmark. Very similar font with slightly different kerning.

    I don't know if any of you care, but they're doing this right. They maintain that it's a different franchise, but are referring to the return of the Hornets. It is the return of the namesake. They have Muggsy Bogues doing radio ads for the unveiling. This is big for Charlotte. Yeah, anyways... just figured y'all might wanna know.

    There's a lot of pent up hostility here. Calm down. And I don't understand any of these shots at Baltimore. Many analysts picked them to be in the Superbowl not just last year, but in recent years prior. They're not some fluke flash in the pan team, nor is Harbaugh a bad coach by anyone's definition of bad. I'm assuming we're dealing with a 13-year old here.

    Both teams won. Ryan wasn't fitting in well anymore, and there was no way he was going to be re-signed in 2015, so the Ducks had to move him. Silfverberg has been great when healthy, and Noesen should be a good one (too bad he's out for the entire year). The first round pick looks real nice right now too. ------------ The Wings look like dog :censored:. Lots of sloppy play and bad goaltending. The Ducks have had like 20 grade A scoring chances.

    So far, the beat going on with the Red Wings in a 4-1 hole at home after one. This is getting absurd.

    I did not know that. I know we were getting the short end of it with all these long far eastern road trips and played a whole ton of road games, but that is a fantastic note, the returning to the East thing. Add that in with the undefeated in regulation at home thing (13-0-2), and things look very nice for the second half. Very nice. --- Also, Jakob Silfverberg scores 3:40 into his return to the lineup after 7 1/2 weeks out with a broken hand. (and I re-added him to my fantasy lineup tonight. Nice.)

    I don't think stripes should go away but I do like how the Seahawks have worked with the newer helmet shapes to create an interesting design element. Maybe we just need a little more well thought out stripe designs.

    You have to look at the uniform as a whole. There are no stripes on the jersey or pants. Removing the stripes on the helmet give it some space that is reflected in the rest of the uniform. With the stripes applied you create visual tention, there is too much color and shape in one area which break rythem with the jersey and pants.My issue with the Browns is the lack of consistency. I like the brown pants with white jersey because you only have 2 different stripe patterns in the uniform. The brown pants balance the player visually. Darker color pants make the player look stable, with a strong base, where brown over white pants makes them appear top heavy. With dark colors, i think you also can use more space (plain pants with no stripe) to your advantage where bright or light colors are very "loud" and need something more to break it up. Ive never like brown over orange because i dont like the color balance. The uniform is dominated by brown and orange and need a lot more white IMO

    I completely disagree that stripes are outdated. Many teams still pull them off great. Some classic helmets would not look right without them and many modern helmets like the Panthers and even the Bills are coming up with new ways to do stripes. With that said, I was really surprised how great the Redskins' helmet looked without stripes.

    I don't think helmet stripes are are outdated per se, but now that some teams have more modern, elaborate logos and interesting stripe/pipe patterns on their uniforms (for better or worse) there is less of a need for helmet stripes in those cases. I guess what I'm saying is now there are more OPTIONS for designs and for making a uniform seem unique beyond just what color helmet and stripe you have, so in that sense - in some cases - it becomes more UNNECESSARY than outdated.
