    Double posting because I just whipped up this idea for how they could make their color rush jersey a full-time look. This is a perfect look, IMHO. Also, kind of weird to believe that they're playing against the same team in both of those pics.

    I think it would have been best for us to leave it in the mega thread. Somewhere it can eventually be buried under another hundred pages, away from the eyes of innocents.

    1. Don't care. 2. Don't care. 3. This is one of my absolute pet-peeves of the board. "I hate the team so I hate their identity" is so senseless for a place like this. We're here to evaluate the aesthetics of sports and the inability to separate a team's look from how you feel about it is unreasonable. And here's the thing, all teams are pretty much the same once you get to know them. Sorry. Don't take this personally. I've been waiting to uncork that for a while.

    The worst part of this picture is the poorly Photoshopped football with the upside-down Nike swoosh.. That's taking the marketing a bit too far imo

    Week 2 - Houston (1952 Dallas Texans) @ Cincinnati (1968) Took some liberties with the Texans design since they only lasted one season.

    Or, and this might not make some here happy, we can just drop the farce that we really care about soccer. Soccer has has never been our sport (On the men's side, anyway), and outside of the PNW, it's never really been more than a niche. This literally could kill the remaining interest Americans have in soccer, at least in terms of it being on par with the rest of the world. Oddly (even as a fan and someone who works for a soccer team) I think I'm ok with that. Let the the rest of the world do soccer. They do it extremely well as it is. We don't have to have everything.

    Just a few mock-ups to show how beautiful the road version of the blue and yellow looks. I think it looks great.

    https://ucfknights.exposure.co/we-have-liftoff Helmets are sick as hell, kinda wish the rest of the uniform was more inspired though. editing in pics of the helmet stripe because this might be one of my favorite uniform design elements ever.

    Hating a team's uniforms just because you hate the team is just being blinded by your lack of objectivity. I can't stand the Red Sox, but their uniforms are top 10 in baseball, IMO. I loathe the Devils, but their old uniforms (pre-2017) were probably the best non-Original Six uniforms in the entire NHL. And the Islanders and Flyers, neither of whom I can stand, aren't far behind. On a site like this, it's next to impossible to have a reasonable discussion about uniform design if you can't separate out the quality of the identity from your personal feelings about the team wearing it. As for first one, I do mostly agree about playoffs. They cheapen the regular season, which is far more indicative of who the best team is. I generally oppose large playoff fields, like the NBA and NHL, in part for that reason. It's also why I'd much prefer baseball to jettison the Wild Card Game and go back to an 8-team playoff. That said, playoffs make for incredible entertainment and drama, and that's ultimately why we watch sports - for entertainment. The MLB and NHL playoffs are usually wild rides with incredible exciting games - we'd be losing out if we lost those playoffs. The NFL playoffs take the normal "main event" feeling of a regular season NFL game and turn it up to 11. The Super Bowl is the single best sporting event in America, and one of the best in the world. March Madness is probably the most fun tournament in Earth, and pretty much the only time that most Americans (myself included) watch college basketball. Do they decide who is the most deserving champion? No. But once you accept that fact as a necessary trade-off for increased entertainment, playoffs really do make sense. I don't support large playoff fields, but a smaller playoff field of the best regular season teams seems like a reasonable compromise between having "deserving teams" and providing great entertainment. (Also eliminates often lopsided early rounds that are a slog to get through.)

    I hope Barbashev is healthy and has made a full recovery from having the game delayed against him. You know, I've always said that you should be suspended for as long as the other guy is hurt.

    My guess is tOSU will go with the "cannonball" helmet from last year... I can picture it working with those numbers. As for pants, who knows? As a graduate and fan of Ohio State, and a native of Columbus, can I say I don't need this in any way? The Buckeyes need one helmet, one pair of pants, and two jerseys... period.

    SAN DIEGO PADRES, PT. II Addendum - Surf Dawgin' It I've experimented with brown and light blue for the Padres, and it has its supporters. @DustDevil61 made an intriguing suggestion in the "Rehabilitated Uniforms" thread: Well, my alternate take provided the perfect template to try this idea out. So, I did a little color swapping, added a few bits to the primary logo, and added the 1998 pinstripes as an alternate! It was a fun bonus experiment to throw in, and a way to demonstrate how brown/yellow can be "beachy" as well. C+C is appreciated. Up next, my hometown team, the San Francisco Giants!

    I actually think that these would look even better on a modern template with TV numbers on the shoulders and the Northwestern stripe on the sleeve cap. Or just use those pants with the color rush jersey, which is actually also perfect in it's own right.

    Re: West Virginia...I may be on an island with this, I really enjoyed (& still prefer) their previous look, from the Pat White/Steve Slation/Noel Devine/Owen "The Headbanger" Schmitt days: I always found it interesting how the colored panels (stripes??) subtly resembled a "W" up in the chest area--and if one really wants to go there, a "V" on each shoulder. I liked the numbers...WV just made them work. As for Arizona, [to me] it's clear what they need to do... Leave it be and never fool with it again.

    Last year I saw a post on Uni-Watch bringing up the idea of replacing the NFL Color Rash with Throwback Thursdays. The only issue with it is that the one-helmet rule kind of threw a wrench in some of the throwbacks, making it unfortunately unrealistic. For this, I set myself 2 basic rules: Must use the same helmets as usual Throwbacks should be roughly from the same time period for each game (~10 years or so) For a few teams I ended up making fauxback uniforms, one of which is right here-- So with that I have week 1 - Kansas City (1963) @ New England (1960) I have the rest of the teams planned out, and hopefully the combos will work!

    I wish Houston would fix their cap to have an orange squatchee to match the bill. I always hate when two-tone caps don't match the bill and squatchee.

    I dig this look. The away uniform should be white jerseys with gold sleeves over gold pants. Add a blue jersey as an alternate.

    Checked it on my phone and you're right. Here's a better representation, though you get the point either way. This is automatically a top 3 look in the league for me, ceteris paribus.

    Those are pretty unpopular... I'm kinda with you on #1. As leagues expand playoffs it kinda cheapens the regular season. That said, if an NBA team with 66 games and another wins 65, is that definitive? In that case, a best-of-seven probably makes sense to settle who's better. Of course if one wins 66 and another wins 55 (particularly within the same conference), then you already know who's better (or, with injury, at least who had the better year). The problem is that the playoff format has to be set in advance. I prefer each league have a smaller playoff pool to create importance in the regular season. But if the pool becomes too small and most teams are eliminated by mid-season, the season becomes more of a drag. But ultimately, you are kind of right...the pre 1969 AL Champ / NL Champ was probably the best way to decide the two league champs with integrity. I think a Vegas/Nevada resident, regardless of age, has every reason to be a Golden Knights Fan. They finally have a team there...I'd be excited. If the Knights are not your closest team geographically, then I'm with you. I hate plenty of teams with uniforms I think are great.

    If they are going to do something wild like this they should have gone all out and continued the pattern onto the pants, not to say that would be a good look but at least it executes the concept better. Black pants would also be better than the plain grey/green pants.

    To reach back to the Washington purple chrome helmet if I may - It may not have been the greatest look, but I do appreciate that Washington actually kept it a secret. I feel like we don't have many surprises on gameday anymore. No more wearing one uniform, changing after warmups, and surprising everyone. No more Maryland original flag uniform ordeals. Everyone tries to capitalize on the uniforms by gaining a ton of social media attention by announcing it a day or two early. Which makes plenty of sense. I, for one, just appreciate the surprise. Design wise, I didn't think the chrome shell looked awful. Just wish the W decal was visible.

    Through the first two games of the NHL season, I find myself really liking the Vegas Golden Knights. Even the name. I thought it was stupid at first, but I like "Vegas" and I like "Golden Knights." It gives the team a unique and flashy identity. Perfect for the city.

    It's time. The Redskins should drop the gold pants, just like they did in the 1970s.
