    A 1-11 season didn't kill it in Fleck's first year at WMU. I like Fleck. I think he'll be successful wherever he coaches and at this point, I'd rather have him in Gainesville than McElwain, but "Row the Boat" is more his personal identity than the schools and it shouldn't be anywhere near the uniforms.

    This looks like it was done by a high schooler who was messing around with the Seahawks logo in Photoshop, then mirrored it, and then said "oh how sick is this???" Not a fan.

    Hi everyone! Not sure if you remember but I started this thread way back collecting NBA Jersey history information to make my personal database factually accurate. Now, as you may have guessed I've moved on to adding ABA jerseys in the database and I once again turn to this talented group of amateur historians for help! You can check out what I've done in the site itself: https://nbajerseydatabase.tumblr.com/tagged/aba Here are screenshots if you don't feel like clicking away: I'm open for all corrections and suggestions! Thanks for your help! All years and jersey information comes from: remembertheaba.com

    All they need to do is subtly put it in the logo and call it a day. This helmet would look great if it was an orange VT with a maroon outline and kept the same pattern.

    This is probably going to be an unpopular opinion, but I like it. Thought it looked great on the player's hat where we first saw it. Now I wouldn't say the same if it was on the Seahawks' uniform (unless this was college and it could be on the collar). But as a standalone secondary, it works.

    I'm surprised no one noticed that Dallas is going to be sporting a nice shiny patch. It is possible that NHL will be going to the NFL route to make the Cup patch like the Super Bowl. I wonder other teams are going this direction for their anniversary patches?

    Going to be posting NHL jersey concepts I've done so far throughout the year. Completely random if it's a Home & Away or an alternate. Would love to hear feedback on all of these. Some a bit wild, some conservative! Might not go back to some of these but still would love to discuss! Just going to be dumping these here.

    The Wild set does a great job of using the style of their original jerseys into something more traditional [bringing the shoulder stripes to the yoke and adding matching arm stripes to the hem]. Well done.

    I want to point out that the Purdue helmets are a cool move for a special occasion. Ross Ade Stadium had permanent lights installed this offseason so Friday night's game will be the first home night game with permanent lighting for Purdue. The lights are a big deal for the football team so I really like the idea of embracing that with a helmet that will look fantastic under them. Hopefully they don't over wear the new lids.

    I like those helmets, but I think the left side will look terrible, as the K doesn't really work on the left side, and it ends up looking like one big blob.

    New wall wrap at Gillette. Features the words 5x champions, with the word "champions" in the font of the Patriots' wordmark, and underneath where the banner features the wordmark itself are five stars, an update of a logo they used after the last super bowl victory (they added 4 stars under the wordmark)

    So let's talk a bit about the broadcasting structure. As you will recall, the AFA moved to a centralized broadcasting model with the 1975 season. It took quite some time to get team owners, who held a monopoly on almost all broadcasting up until the Victory Bowl, and even then irregularly, to permit the league to take control of TV rights. (Local radio is still a team-centered business.) At that time, ABC placed the winning bid, sensing that a network on the come-up could help boost a league on the rise. The national broadcast plan was one of the major contributions of Jeffrey Trejo, who became involved with the league when the California Whales moved to Phoenix in 1974. He then lobbied the AFA to ditch its antiquated regional model, which, in his mind, impeded the creation of national stars and kept fans under the mercy of local (or sometimes, not so local) team telecasts. Trejo continues to advise the Firebirds and the league on marketing and television matters. In the 1975 and 1978 contracts, ABC had 48 regular-season game windows: -17 Monday Night Showcase windows, one for each week of the season; -two Thanksgiving games; -29 regular season games, with doubleheaders in all but five weeks of the season. The 1981 contract extension added seven additional games to bring the total of 55. All weeks now had doubleheaders, resulting in five extra regular season windows on Sundays. Additionally, the AFA also allows a pair of Saturday games in December, after the conclusion of the college season. ABC has, since signing on with the league, presented all playoff games, as well as the All-Star Bowl. ABC's bet on football was a surefire success. The network rocketed to the top of the ratings in the late 70s and stayed there into the early 80s, during which time the 1978 three-year contract and the 1981 five-year contract were signed. It gained new affiliates, including in some small markets, and upgraded in certain large cities (Atlanta and San Diego come to mind). The league's prestige and popularity also soared, with players gaining far more national recognition than they had in the regional model era and fans able to see them regularly given that they weren't only presented with the game in their area. The 1986 extension basically holds the status quo of the 1981 contract. However, it was clear in the uncertainty around the negotiations that there was a bit of discord. ABC was faltering fairly badly in the ratings, and NBC, the top network, attempted to court the league. With time running thin, the league opted to stay with ABC, providing its affiliates some much-needed relief and certainty. However, rumors are already swirling about 1988, when the USFA begins play and the AFA's current contract now expires. As to cable, the AFA has never aired a regular-season game on cable, though media prognosticators say that may well happen beginning in the 1988-89 season, the first under the new rights plan, simply to compete with the USFA. The teams still control telecasts of preseason contests. About the only novelty in the 1986 extension is that the AFA is allowed to put two preseason games on a cable network, provided that they are blacked out in local markets. This ancillary contract was awarded to the USA network, beating out ESPN. Some speculate that, should this deal work out, USA may be in line to begin airing regular-season contests in a couple of years, especially as cable adoption increases (diminishing the league's concern that games on cable may not be a "public good"). There's also a lot of speculation as to the USFA's media path. They will need a national network, and a supplemental cable package is not out of the question for a league that will no doubt crave exposure.

    Odds that Dodgers outdo the 2011 Red Sox for most spectacular September collapse? Regardless, I think it's safe to say D-Backs have established themselves as the NL's "dark horse" playoff team.

    Depends on the lighting. In some images, there is significant contrast between the numbers and jersey. It may be a game-time decision, based on the ambient lighting of the field. The fact these jerseys are a one-off is irrelevant to the enforcement of the rule. I'm glad that it was enforced against a D1 school, hopefully word will pass down to other levels. Unfortunately, there's no warning when designing these using the respective brands' uniform builders. You can design yellow numbers on a white jersey, and just click "submit".

    @b0ss pls Here's part 1. Next up is the Minnesota Wild. For them, I was inspired by their inaugural jerseys. except with cream replacing white. The home jersey features two stripes on the sleeves, hem, yoke, and socks. The away uses the same pattern, except with a lot more green. The M from the Minnesota script is used as a shoulder logo. Cream Version: C&C and requests welcome.

    That is definitely a Bulls jersey. Nobody wears teal Pistons stuff on the game. The people in the crowd on the 2K games only wear the home, away and alternates and generic shirts/hoodies sometimes bearing the 2K logo or something. On the subject of 2K, the Thunder have the new Chesapeake Energy logo on their court.

    That rule would be an excellent start. I would add to that, with primary home and road uniforms, there should be a contrast of color between every part of the uniform that touches (jersey with pants, pants with socks) excepting when white jerseys and pants are worn together. This would effectively kill not just the leotard legs, but also the primary home monochrome, and kick start my plan for total world domination.

    Trust me I completely agree. I think the NFL should just say sorry to the players, you have to wear real socks. It's just a lack of awareness or degree of caring. But I completely agree. If it was up to me the top half of NFL socks should not be allowed to be the same color as the pants, just as the bottom half has to be white. I'd also make high socks mandatory in baseball, so.

    "Informed consent" will be a suitable justification once the NFL, along with other football leagues and organisations, stop fighting the truth about the impact their sport has on the mental health of their players. If a player knows the risks and plays anyway? Hey, he made his informed choice. Right now though? The NFL is leading the charge to ensure players know as little as possible.

    Whoa. TV timeouts are worse than widespread brain damage? That's a hot take there. In actual science news. the Hamilton Spectator and McMaster University have been conducting a two-year study on the effects of football head trauma in living football players, and their article is very interesting. This isn't CTE, which can't be observed except post-mortem, this is MRI and EEG testing on a group of retired football players and a control group of healthy men of similar ages. One of the interesting findings they found was a significant thinning of the cerebral cortex, the exterior part of the brain (and, as the article points out, the part of the brain that strikes the skull every time the players smack together). Couple more pull quotes: Obviously, this is only one more piece of the puzzle, but it's a really interesting approach. I hope we can continue this research on living players, even active players. There's so much more to learn.

    We reach the end with the San Francisco Giants! I love the elegance of the '70s Giants script, something that was wiped away by the overly generic '80s design. Here I've adapted an away script from the same style and opted for the late '70s "SF." For the waistband, I took the sock stripes and translated them which makes it look like a doubled up version of the classic three-stripe soutache. In figuring out the collar, I took the traditional piping but added a notch, reminiscent of some recent AS Roma designs. The look I was going for was a traditional collar, with the top button rakishly undone. I hope you've enjoyed this series as much as I've enjoyed designing it. Let me know you comments on the series on the whole and any further thoughts. Enjoy!

    Arizona Diamondbacks today: This was tough. I wanted to do something geometric so I figured out a diamond pattern based on equilateral triangles in a pattern that created a successive diamond pattern like the back of a Western diamondback rattlesnake. For colors I've opted for a blending of classic purple with modern turquoise with a hint of gold/sand. For the road uniform I've opted for sand with a turquoise alternate. I've also thrown in a purple softball jersey with sand lettering. I've gone with collars the same color as the jersey like the old Atlanta Braves since the wide diamond pattern offers plenty of detail. C&C as always! Enjoy!

    I went through several versions of the Angels. There's a lot of terrific takes on the Angels whether red and yellow from @SFGiants58 or blue and gold from @MJD7 or blue and red from @Victormrey. Those and others have done amazing work so it's a challenge not to just copy their terrific work. I really like the lower case "a" logo for the Halos (something also reflected in my Braves concept) but I decided against just going straight for the classic 70's style uniform. So instead, I opted for something that combines the current red-centric Angels with the 1972 White Sox. It's focused primarily on white and red at home with a powder blue road. I opted with metallic gold (a nod to UCLA) for the alternate jersey trim.

    Moving onto the Swingin' A's: A lot of what I've done here is bring a lot of the touches of the Reggie Jackson era A's and put them in a more consistent box. I've opted for the gold "A's" with the white jersey and the white "A's" for the all gold road. The trim is based on two sets of three stripes on the waistband and the sleeve and one on the collar. The sanitaries switch from gold to white on the road so there isn't an overload of gold. The alternate, worn with white pants is essentially a green version of the home jersey.
