    This is only more proof that they need to get rid of color rush and just do throwback Thursdays instead

    Except their school colors are crimson and gray, not crimson and white. And they should always feature both of their colors prominently when playing their biggest rival.

    Kings just posted this on their online store calling it the "Hyperlocal" basketball. I'm betting they will use this logo on the community uniform.

    Obviously, as a uniform nut and complete Viking homer, this article is fascinating to me, but I thought it would also be interesting to the community at large; http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21409647/the-full-story-how-viking-uniforms-came-minnesota Check out this original sketch from 1961; " Hubenthal's original design concept called for diagonally crossed stripes on the socks, evoking the leather straps or leggings worn by real Vikings. That seems like something Nike or Under Armour might come up with nowadays, but it was unheard of back in 1961. In addition, Hubenthal's original jersey design featured gold sleeve striping with a V-shaped pattern. That design element, along with the sock concept, didn't make it to the final on-field product." What interesting to me is that road uniform design, with the UCLA stripes. The Vikings didn't start wearing that until 68. Apparently, someone kept that in the back of their head for 7 years, before giving it a go.

    There. Is. Still. No. Jaguars. News. It’s fine if we talk about other things if that’s where the conversation goes.

    Alright everyone. Getting ready to unveil the Dallas identity. I have it all set, so no name the team contest here (Mark Cuban picks the name). I am willing to hold a "guess the identity" contest over the next couple of days. Here are my hints to help guide your guesses: 1. The name does play on a major cultural influence in the area. 2. The name does not use an "old West" theme because of the conflict with the Cowboys, Houston Gamblers and San Antonio Outlaws. 3. The name does not reflect a local industry such as oil or cattle. So, what did Mark Cuban go with to both link with local culture, attract an audience that is perhaps distinct from the Cowboy fanbase, and provide an identity distinct from those of the 2 other USFL Texas franchises? (And Happy Thanksgiving everyone!)

    Up next are my other favourite team, the Fremantle Dockers. The Dockers were established in 1994, and wore these monstrosities until 2010. Their current jumpers are purple and white, with three chevrons. Since there's already one team using chevrons as stripes, and one using three stripes, I made a compromise for this one, using the chevrons on the arms and three stripes on the hem. The away uses the same pattern and coloring as the home, creating a coloured upper shoulder area. C&C welcome. Next up: Join in the chorus.

    I think they screwed it up by going with grey helmets and pants. Red/white/red would look worlds better and would flow better with the jersey.

    I disagree. The pants stripes were clearly not designed to be worn with the same color jersey. When the white pants were worn with the purple jerseys and vice versa, the side panels from the jerseys seamlessly transitioned into the pants stripes. When worn monochrome, the stripes effectively had a random cutout in the middle.

    Fascinating story. As another Viking fan, I'm not sure how interested the rest of us will be, but I thought this was really interesting and I knew none of it. It's really amazing that this one link to this history hung on the designer's wall for decades while the rest of the world had no idea. I'm glad the daughter ended up sharing it with the Vikings. Almost nobody had any idea that the University of Washington inspired the colors. And that the horns may (there seems to be no confirmation either way) have been inspired by a Rams fan.

    Full uniform. I can't believe how good these look. This needs to be their new full time set.

    Completely understood. Would it be possible at the beginning of your annual billing cycle to institute a CCSLC Go Fund Me (or any other donation drive) for say 2 weeks to a months and lets us as members donate to that $2,500? I'd be more than happy to donate to that. (If we don't hit $2,500 we don't get that bonus feature for a year). 500 members donate $5 were there 250 members donate $10 were there I completely understand if the answer is a hard no (because it might be a bigger hassle that I assume), but after years of FREE enjoyment, entertainment and information from the CCSLC I'd be more than happy to kick in some cash.

    Lakers are in white on the road against Sacramento, who is in purple. It's the exact opposite of what it should be.

    V stripes are definitely interesting but I don't know how you'd even make those work with today's jersey cuts.

    New Sacramento RiverCats alternate cap. Considering I work directly with the SRFC Tower Bridge Battalion, I kind of have to get this.
