    By wild I guess you meant totally stupid, right? Yeah really, if we're adding colors that are a part of the logo but aren't part of the color scheme, then what's the point of having team colors at all? Surprisingly, the NFL has few of these examples, but the Steelers in blue, the Cardinals in gold, and Minnesota in fleshtone is downright stupid. That's my biggest question with the future of Color Rush... which team(s) will do something really wacky? I don't think something like the Steelers in blue or the Cards in yellow is all that likely, but I could see someone coming out in all-grey that doesn't have it in their color scheme or a team taking Nike's trendy version of one of their team colors. In the very first game, we already had a team wear a version of a color that's not currently in their identity; it just sort of flew under the radar IMO because they've worn it in the past and many of us would like to see the kelly green come back.When that happens, it's truly the Nikepocalypse. Sure, it was fun to see bunches of random jerseys in college football. Throwbacks were fun, special event jerseys were fun, crazy ideas and versions of looks were a good time... but idk about you guys, but I have actual difficulty identifying teams. When you look different every week, and not just a single element, but wildly different, it is difficult to identify who you are. The NFL has had so many restrictions on alternate uniforms - only one of them, used twice per year, at home only, and you can only change it once every five years - because they know the importance of seeing any game on tv and even casual fans being able to identify both teams. I'm sure Nike has its selling points - more jerseys to sell, publicity and attention to NFL uniforms, chances to explore new looks - but there NEEDS to be limits on it all. It has to be a team color, this is a once-a-year thing at most, the jerseys cannot have unique patterns (it has to be the home or road jersey in different colors), and so on, or this will have a long-term negative effect on publicity and sales, and I hope they realize that. If anybody would, it's the NFL, but huge amounts of money tends to cloud the vision of even shrewd businessmen.

    Maybe somebody in the front office got the message that all white at home at every day game is not what the fans want.All aqua is way worse than all white though.

    Thanks for the comments. I made the Padres brown because it's a color that's unique to them (and there will be several teams in this series wearing solid yellow) but in hindsight the yellow would probably work better to create some contrast with the Mariners. In the meantime, here are the Giants and Dodgers.

    Although that Michigan uniform is gorgeous, I'm a little bummed that we didn't get to see the maize pants on the road this year. I think the new white jersey paired with the maize pants would look absolutely phenomenal. The all-white is great, but to me the maize pants are a staple of Michigan football. Plus, I felt the all-white look became dull by the end of the year. If they just split the time between white and yellow pants on the road next year and kept all other design elements the same, I'd be happy. You clearly don't know your football history. The only reason TSUN started wearing yellow pants in the first place is that their players were peeing themselves in fear before the games. They used to have brown panels in back. With technology the way it is today, it's possible to make both pee and poop invisible with the right combination of diapers. The white pants reflect this new high-tech world.I lost brain cells while reading this post.

    Source?Several previously mentioned in this thread. Also, we've already seen one of them. The Diamondbacks? Huh? Which team is that? There's no team by that name. There's one in Arizona called the DBacks though, maybe you mean them?

    I need to pick up a new set of lawn chairs for my back yard this summer. They can't be out there all the time due to the rain, and I don't have much storage space for them. Maybe I'll try to get them from the Ducks. I've heard they fold pretty easily. SO stoked I'm missing the start of the Devils game because of this choke job.

    Personally, I'm tired of teams thinking they have to look like the Military. I'm honestly getting really tired of MLB teams wearing Camo and team identities using the Military as an excuse for lame uniforms, however, when I see people starting to put people in the Military down because of Military dress-up, I have a real problem with that. It is because of those people's services and sacrifices that we have the freedom we do today and also get to live in peace. They are the reason a lot of us don't have to go through what they have gone through. Anyway, that's a small rant from me. About the Panthers, I think it is a matter of execution. It will probably be a case of love it or hate it, probably the latter.

    I guess we'll be stuck with the stupid military shield because of their owner's past (who really gives a damn?) but otherwise this mock-up looks great! I'm guessing the owner of the team gives a damn. You might not give a damn, but you don't control the team, either.

    If the panthers would just throw some hem stripes or some coyotes-esque tail stripe i would put their look in the top 10 in the league. Enough of these 1920's knock-off jerseys, they're not the canadiens or the blackhawks they're the the cats.

    They don't line up with anything in their set. But none of the uniform works with each other. i dont see that. its just the light blue helmet. but if you think of this uniforms' visuals as jazz, its really cool. its everything "moving" together, then there's this 1 thing thats out of place. thats what makes it unique and interesting. i love the uniform. Me, too. I think you can make an argument that uniform continuity is important in the NFL, which has that corporate feel, but in the colleges, where teams have decades (hell, some have a century) of tradition, the quirks and illogical details are the very things that make uniforms so great. Speaking of the NFL, it's just this design principle that makes the Giants' road uniform the best in the League. In high school, 30 some years ago, we played a local team, the Bishop Hartley Hawks, that wore a very plain helmet and jersey... just navy and white, plain white numbers and plain white "H" on navy, and then, inexplicable, had gray pants with a single bright red stripe. No red or gray above the waist, no navy below. My favorite opponent uniform by far I like the Jazz comparison. The visual equivalent would be a late period Wassily Kandinsky painting. I understand the visual jazz comparison for Ole Miss and I would agree... with their normal, navy helmets. Not one piece of the normal Ole Miss uniform really matches any other part of the uniform (the single helmet stripe, double white jersey stripe, and split stripe on the pants) and you have a navy helmet, red/white or navy/white jersey, and silver pants with one red stripe and one navy. Nothing specifically matches, but as a whole, the uniform works in an interesting and unique way.However, the eggshell blue helmets takes the fragile balance established by the normal uniforms and upends it. Just as you can overlook some of the differences between individual pieces of the normal uniform because of the uniform as a whole, the same principle also works in the opposite direction; while the eggshell helmets are fine on their own, you have to factor in what they do to the rest on the uniform. The second shade of blue disconnects the helmet from any visual connection to the pants, and paired with a jersey that was already disconnected to the rest of the uniform. Or, in other words, at some point jazz stops being jazz and starts becoming noise.

    I think I can pinpoint whenever United Center starts blasting out Madeon's "Finale" at every close Blackhawk and Bull game I watch at this point. BTW worst organist is by far San Jose's. A whopping four songs on the playlist for the Sega Genesis organ

    Jeremy Boyer in St. Louis and Dieter something-or-other in L.A. are the best organists I can think of offhand. I know the perception is that organ music at a hockey game is stale and old-fashioned, but organ music is hockey, and if you ask me, what's really stale is playing the same five or six pre-recorded songs, one of which is a Dropkick Murphys song ABOUT BOSTON, game after game after game. With all the efforts to brand the United Center as the Madhouse on Madison like its predecessor, you would think that would include emphasizing one of the most beloved aspects of the Stadium atmosphere, that being the organ.

    You know. It was the North Stars Cinderella run to the finals in 1981 that kept the green jersey from going black the following season. I think Florida has a great logo, secondary logo, and jersey. They look great the way they are. Why change? For a logo with a wood-mark. a stupid flag. And Montreal Canadiens striping? Bleh.

    Some people obviously don't know how equipment teams apply helmet decals... I actually really like the Arkansas helmet. They did it well, with only the chrome shell. A chrome decal and facemask would've been overkill like we see a lot of the time. Arkansas gets a nice pop of color and not much more.

    As a proud graduate of THE Ohio State University, it pains me to say this about TSUN, but Michigan had just about the most flawless home and road combination possible this year. One helmet, one home uniform, one road uniform, no stupid gimmicks, no one-offs, no throwbacks, no chrome, no matte, no nonsense and no garbage. The home uniform remained simple and awesome and this road uniform... ... is just about as close to perfection as it gets. The super clean white on white, the single layer numbers, the matching stripes... my Lord, that's a gorgeous uniform. In the nightmare cesspool of the current state of CFB uniform design, the way that Michigan shook off the idiocy of ugliness, and went back to basics is inspiring. OK, I think I just made myself a little nauseous. Go Bucks!

    I like the red-and-green Devils logo and the "stick in rink" is okay, but not a big fan of the "let's look like the Lakers" L.A. Kings look. Well the lakers switched to purple and gold to match the kings, the owner wanted his teams to have a unified look in the fourm.

    TWO new BP cap styles for every team this upcoming season. One for Spring Training specifically, one for the rest of the year (I'm not sure if some teams will have multiple caps like some do already, but I'd assume so. I'm sure at least one team will probably have three or even maybe four). Both will feature the new league logo mark on the right side panel. Some teams BP caps will be the same, some will be slightly different, some will be dumb as hell and look really stupid. Oh, grey sweatbands on the new BP caps, too.

    Here is the next team, The Ontario reign. This team looked phenomenal before they went to the AHL. The dragon logos are top notch and the jerseys were sharp and had gradients. Now they are simply an LA Kings ripoff. I am really sad that they didn't keep their old brand because it is much better. My concept brings back the gradients and a neat spike design on the arms. The third jersey is a little more subtle and uses very sharp angles. Ontario Reign
