  6. Wayne Brewce is a philanthropist, socialite, playboy, and chairman of the American diversified multinational conglomerate known as Brewce Enterprises. He is credited with becoming the youngest billionaire in the world after his parents were murdered, when he was just eight. He's had little hand in the 'family' business, with decisions being made by a trusted advisor on his behalf, but his net worth has grown to several billion dollars even though is wareabouts were unknown. Just recently he has been spotted around the Brewce Tower, appearing to show an interest in the company. Especially the "applied sciences", "energy", and "defense" sectors. The Brewce Foundation, the holding company for the Thomas Brewce and Martha Brewce Foundations, is the largest transparently operated private foundation in the United States. He has been named 'Most Eligible Bachelor" by several major magazine publications and he once considered putting together an expansion bid for a PHL franchise. Ultimately, he decided against the bid as he simply did not have the time nor energy to dedicate to running a hockey team, given the ventures he is currently focused on. But he did joke that if he did own a team their uniforms would be "all-black". His votes are: 1. Houston, TX 2. Cleveland, OH 3. Portland, OR

  13. Doesn't work in the real world. Two problems: 1. Nobody wants a white third jersey. Most third jerseys aren't white because color jerseys sell better. (In 2002-2003 the last season of white at home there were 16 teams with alternate jerseys. 15 were color, Toronto's white was a throwback) 2. Teams aren't trying to sell alternates to the road fans so wearing it on the road makes no sense. They wear it at home to show it off to their key demographic, which leads us to teams wearing color jerseys at home. Instead of restructuring how jerseys are sold to fans at the sake of convenience for the equipment managers they just said "everybody wear your dark shirts at home." Problem solved. Teams don't have to carry two sets of equipment, franchises get to sell whatever they want to their home fans. Everybody wins, well except for people who have a stick up their butt because white jerseys were the home jerseys when they were 11. It's pretty simple really.

  18. Minnesota turned out pretty nice I'd say. For all the talk about them getting kinda off-the-rack kits, this is pretty distinctive with the sash and two unusual colors. Would prefer the Target wordmark (the bullseye alone is too tall and looks off-center), and something needs to be done about those numbers, but this mostly works rather well.

  22. Why would they think it's a failure? Because some people on an internet message board are complaining? I doubt there's any tangible measure that indicates it's a failure. I guarantee that if SB merch sales were down they'd scrap it. Why I think it's good (at least conceptually - I do think some of these could have been executed better) 1. It "brands" the superbowl. You see a mark with the Lombardi trophy and roman numerals and you instantly think Super Bowl. You're not looking at flowers or mardi gras hats or other stuff and having to read the words SUPER BOWL. To sports nerds you'd see it once and then associate it with the Super Bowl, but it's probably not that way for everyone. 2. It creates a genuine icon for the Super Bowl. It's tough to have an iconic logo with something that changes every year (the numbers, subtle color shades, etc.) but they've given it an iconic element (the trophy) and iconic theme if not an iconic mark. 3. It's special to see the logo on the jerseys now. It's like you play every year for the right to wear the Lombardi patch on your jersey. It's kinda like the Stanley Cup patch in the NHL. Also in photos you can instantly tell what SB it is by the patch. You don't have to stare at it for more than a second. 4. It's just classy and IMO looks more prestigious on a jersey. Now if you want local logos for use in the host cities or as alternate marks (kinda like the hosting committee logos) then maybe that would be OK, but I fear that it would dilute the brand.

  23. Had no idea this would be an unpopular opinion, but I loathed that uniform set. I hated the word mark, particularly on the jersey, where I've always preferred the team's name to be shortened to "Wolves." I thought the trees were too gimmicky. I hated the fact that shorts only had trees on the band of one leg. The only thing to like about these was the fact that the team actually won some games while wearing them. Other than that, keep 'em on the scrap heap.

  26. I'll say this: there's absolutely nothing wrong with the template. It's a traditional style with contrasting sleeves. It beats the heck out of this arbitrary and meaningless design. But, I thought that shot above was an age where Nike and other manufacturers were trying to emphasize their tech and show what they can do with different materials and cuts. We're past that now. We know all these new designs are nice and lightweight and have mesh holes and all that stuff. What's disappointing is that Nike can offer this template with custom designs. Granted, I don't think it comes with the mesh chest construction but they still offer custom designs for their premier teams. Nike is clearly choosing NOT to bother with international kit design right now. Maybe the return on investment isn't there...I can't explain it. However, it's extremely disappointing that we don't get kits like these below every cycle now. This was peak Nike. Templates, yes...custom designs, yes. Win-win. Now Nike is more about promoting Nike rather than the squads. They actually look like the countries they are supposed to represent.

  28. To be totally fair, it's a real shame that Kramer isn't a hall of famer. With that slider and the way he constantly held the 8th, I think only his public issues with racism are what's keeping him out of the hall. Costanza I can understand, though. He couldn't even properly handle fitted hats.

  29. I know this is kind of an obscure topic, but it's one I kind of find fascinating, because of the rarity of both happening and documentation when the internet was just Al Gore's pet project. But, in the 80's there were a number of instances of secondary jerseys and color vs. color match ups. The Utah Jazz for instance wore their green jerseys at home a couple times for St. Patrick's Day -- once against the Lakers, whom were wearing their purple roads. Then again in 1986 during Karl Malone's rookie season. The unique thing about this occurrence was that the Jazz didn't wear their green jerseys as their main roads -- they switched back to the purple jerseys the previous year. But, the match up again was on St. Patrick's Day and this time against Detroit wearing their road jerseys. I know there were a couple instances of teams wearing secondary jerseys -- I believe the 1983-84 San Diego Clippers wore both red and blue road jerseys and I believe the Pacers wore white and gold home jerseys (maybe on the road too?). I was wondering if anyone had any other examples or were familiar with this era's history. Again, it fascinates me, probably more because it's a real hunt to find documentation.

  31. Exactly. The dropping of the dull beige/gold from the logo in no way commits them to doing the same to their uniforms, or from adding some other color later. The near legendary "five year rule" applies to uniforms, and more specifically jerseys, so the NFL doesn't get stuck trying to sell the outdated merchandise of a team dumb enough to retool their look on a semi-annual basis. The fact that this tight control has the secondary benefit of keeping NFL teams from going with the ugly clusterbleep "anything goes" stupidity of the NBA and CFB is just a lucky by-product. If the Rams can have a blue and white primary logo while wearing blue and beige uniforms this year, then they can just as easily have a blue and white primary logo while wearing blue and yellow uniforms next year. Or the year after. Or never... it's all guesses right now. So it would probably be best if everyone bemoaning this supposed change to navy and white slowed their roll for a while. Who knows, it may happen. But there's nothing in this logo change that says it's going to happen. All we can say for sure is that by dropping the beige from the official logo, the Rams are probably admitting that that particular color's days are numbered. Which is excellent news.

  36. "Most days start the same — behind the wheel of a white 1997 Dodge Caravan SE outfitted with a bubble-top Mark III conversion kit, a VHS player mounted to the roof inside and a r8hers personalized plate. Mark Davis pilots this machine from his East Bay home to the nearest P.F. Chang's, where he sits at the left end of the bar, same spot every time, puts his white fanny pack on the counter, orders an iced tea and unfolds the day's newspapers. Beside him on the bar, next to the papers, is his 2003 Nokia push-button phone with full texting capability. When someone calls and asks him where he is, he says, "I'm in my office," and sends a knowing nod to the bartenders. It gets 'em every time." "During one dinner with a group that included his mother and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, Davis inexplicably handed a piece of paper to McKenzie with the corners torn off. "This is what I need you to get me," Davis said. McKenzie, flummoxed, turned the tiny triangles over in his hands. Seeing nothing, McKenzie gave up. "What is this?" he asked. "Two corners," Davis said. "I need you to get me two corners." "In perfect Davis family fashion, it's a middle finger to convention. Davis travels to Palm Desert to get it cut, just as he traveled to Chico from Oakland to visit a preferred barber long after he left college at Chico State. "I think he's had three barbers since college," [former Raiders WR Cliff] Branch says. "If he likes something, he stays loyal." http://www.businessinsider.com/raiders-owner-mark-davis-bowl-cut-mini-van-2017-1

  39. I understand Elaine is an old St. Louis Browns fan. Just kidding. If Elaine is the same age as Julia Louis-Dreyfus, she was born 7 years after the Browns moved to Baltimore. Plus, she is from Baltimore (well, Towson, actually . . . which means she grew up somewhere in close proximity to my office).

  41. Right. Even though I don't give a fig about the Super Bowl, I hear that there are some people who are into that sort of thing. So this gigantic event should have a steady, consistent logo. The idea of a new logo each year was actually kind of cheesy. Also, they got the look right. The marble-like look of the figures conveys the right amount of gravitas. By contrast, the World Series logos of recent years have been lacking in character, often veering into the silly. Major League Baseball at one time had a nice aesthetic for its World Series logos. The 1980-86 logos were simple and dignified. But they really hit the jackpot with the next logo, lasting from 1987 through 1991, which featured a script characteristic of baseball superimposed over a baseball diamond. They should have kept this for good. This says "baseball's fall classic" better than any logo before or since. After that they started tinkering, changing the logo every year. They first inserted a globe, then they employed faux-3D. They finally succeeded in stripping the whole thing of any aesthetic value by descending into typefaces more associated with video games. Last year's logo was inoffensive by comparison to the messes that immediately preceded it, but was a bit charmless. Anyway, the thing to do is to abandon the yearly logo-go-round, and to just pick one design and stick with it for a long time, so as to establish a consistent visual identity, as the NBA has done with its Finals logo, whose basic design has been around for about a decade and a half. So, in that respect, the NFL has got it exactly right with its recent Super Bowl logos.

  42. Initially, I was aghast at the sight of Larry King wearing shorts. After further consideration, I decided that he actually wears them pretty well for someone who was probably 80 at the time.

  48. On a semi-related topic. The Utah Jazz '80s jerseys have always fascinated me. On the mothership it's noted that the green jerseys were around since 1979 when the Jazz moved to Salt Lake City. But, that's not true. And, the styles aren't as cut and dry as is noted on this site and even on some NBA sites. 1979-1981: The uniforms were basically the same from New Orleans. The home number font was bolder and blocked (as fully evidenced by the number 2) compared to the road purples, which were thinner and featured slanted 2s. I believe reading somewhere that Larry O'Brien saw the jerseys and ordered them changed. The team was cheap (I mean they kept the Jazz name after all) so this doesn't surprise me at all. 1981-1984: The road jerseys turn to green and trimming and numbers mirror the home jerseys (with obvious color changes). Like @Josh.0 noted from what I've read the green jerseys were worn at least twice for St. Patrick's Day beginning in 1982 against the Lakers. 1984-1986: The road jerseys turn back to purple, but keep the green stripping and mirror the home jersey trimming much better. The biggest change is the addition of Utah to the road jerseys. Thus placing the complete logo on the front of the jersey. I believe the Jazz were the first team in the NBA to do this? I can't find evidence to disclaim it. During the 1985-86 season is when the Jazz did wear their old green uniforms for St. Patrick's Day. I am not aware of any other time they wore them during this time period? 1986-1996: The Jazz add 'Utah' to the home white jerseys to mirror the road purples. These jerseys are essentially what the Jazz wear for the next decade until they overhaul their whole logo package and uniforms. Of course there were some changes with memorial patches (ie-Pistol Pete) and the font on the back changed from a Sans Serif to a Serif font in the early 90s and somewhat in the mid-80s (very inconsistent especially between 1984-86). 1990: One anomaly I found was in 1990 when the Jazz wore jerseys with thinner numbers including slanted 2's. It seems like it was only for the first part of the season. It seems like they switched back somewhere around December or January? I am not sure why this happened, but it also seems like the Celtics did this too? Sorry for the length of the post. I've just always been fascinating by the Jazz 1980s jerseys for many of the same reasons as @Josh.0.

  49. They might as well have. They used to have my favorite identity in the NBA when I was a kid. The trees surrounding the court and on their uniforms, I loved it. Their uniforms were beautiful in the KG era. And the team was actually pretty good! Even their original identity when they joined the league was great. But since then... oh man, it's all been just atrocious. It irks me and breaks the middle schooler in me's heart. Minnesota, you keep searching for something great when you already had it all along: Look at this wood! Look at the trees! It's glorious.
