    I wanted to take another look at my Vikings concept and landed on getting rid of the outdated mustache and going towards the ever-so-trendy beard.

    The most revealing thing about that isn't the Rift That Will Finally Doom the New England Patriots. That's not happening and this article has most likely angered Bellichick and Brady and they'll win a sixth Super Bowl in more convincing fashion than anyone's ever won before. Way to go, dude. No, the most revealing thing about this is that Tom Brady has become like other uber-wealthy, out-of-touch, ultra famous people in that he's now this holistic junk medicine practicing weirdo who believes he's transcended aging. He's Gwyneth Paltrow if she was a star NFL quarterback.

    And from a fan-relations perspective, shouldn't the moment of glory have come from the return to LA as opposed to the stadium? LA fans (in theory) probably care more about the former. And if they wanted it to coincide with the stadium so badly, they should have just stuck with the full St. Louis look in the interim. It's not a terrible look; it's not right for LA and not as good as the classic LA uniform, but it's better than this silly mashup. And yeah, it's not the NFL's fault. The five-year rule makes sense...if teams were changing all the time, their (and, therefore, the league's) looks would be watered down and the PR would be bad because fan gear would become outdated with far more frequency. The Rams had three choices: Stick with St. L until the the stadium is built, change to the classic look right away, or do what they are doing. They chose the worst option.

    If I can add something here, The logo was made by a 16 years teenager on a logo contest. To my knowledge, he made 0 dollar with this. You may not like it at all, but lemme say the teen here made a hot rock logo still very popular. You dont like it, I'm all fine, lemme say I dont like FLA, CAROLINA, COLUMBUS, WASHINGTON, PHOENIX OR ARIZONA OR I DONNO WHERE ect. made by so called teams of professional graphists paid big money. Respect friend, and peace.

    Yeah, in my mind, there should be a clear line between the St. Louis team and Los Angeles team, not St. Louis, Los Angeles while waiting for the Inglewood stadium to open which is gonna take an extra year because of flooding on the construction site and the FAA doing its job, and then the fully-realized Los Angeles Rams. Have a neo-retro Rams set designed in advance and ready to roll out -- in case of relocation, break glass. And honestly, a lot of that could have been achieved with a simple template recolor and a better number set.

    Stobie’s is truly amazing! It was great when I was going to school because they had opened a second location less than a block away from my building, and right across the street from my favourite bar/hangout spot. No wonder I gained a lot of weight in uni Amen. The only thing I’ll add is that St. Louis-style is the lone exception. For it is an abomination.

    These kinds of responses are the worst in these discussions. People that advocate that you can only get good pizza from one town/area/whatever don't truly love pizza, they love being smug. Pizza is delicious. Celebrate it, stop being a negative fool when deep dish and thin crust and everything in between is a blessing.

    Answer: you eat it with two hands. I don't get why you'd need to eat pizza with one hand. Sit down and use both hands like a civilised human being. It's cute when people from outside the New York area think that they have pizza. I kid. I agree that we should celebrate the diversity of pizza. I have enjoyed Chicago pizza on occasion; and, if I hadn't given up pizza along with many other things almost seven years ago, I am sure that I would try Detroit pizza. (But this diversity has limits: so-called "Hawaiian pizza" I'd use only as rat bait -- even though the rats might be too smart to eat it.) Still, we should be clear that pizza by its nature is a New York food; it was invented here and is our native dish. The food that we now know as pizza was based on a Neapolitan dish, which itself had roots in ancient Greek cuisine. But the New York dish has become the dominant style, and has been imported around the world -- even back to Napoli and the rest of Italy. So, while you can say "Chicago pizza" or "Detroit pizza" or whatever else, you never need to say "New York pizza", because the mere word "pizza", unmodified, means "New York pizza".

    The Ducks are way too high. While Anaheim's color scheme was unique, the hem stripes should've been straight across... not diagonal. I hated how unbalanced it made the entire uniform look. The logo was also a product of it's time.

    While I understand why the igloo elephant is polarizing, I disagree that it's an awful logo when it captures the geometric, language-neutral design of Trudeau-era Quebec (see also: Expos, NFB). It's not unfair to say the Nordiques were a product of their time, inasmuch as they're sadly not here in our time.

    Yeah, it can't be stressed enough that even the general public is annoyed by the Rams' uniform decisions. They don't need to know the why and how of it, just that it's bad and that it shouldn't be this hard to look like the Rams. I don't think a botched uniform has had this kind of mainstream penetration before.

    Different context. There was no expectation of rebranding the team for St. Louis at that time; they were just going to be the same Rams in a different city the way the Dodgers were. Of course, in the 21st century, they darkened the blue and faded the gold, then proceeded to chip away at that with navy-over-white and monochrome sets that never quite worked. So once there was a distinctly "St. Louis Rams" identity, one of drained colors, failed tinkering, and most of all copious losing, it was incumbent upon moving back to the previous city to revert from those changes, which turned out to be not an evolution of the Rams but more like a bad dream. Even if the Rams got their publicly funded stadium on whichever blighted patch of the riverfront the city tried to gift them, they should have gone back to royal blue and athletic gold simply to wash off the stink of 65 losses in five years and their carpeted tomb of a stadium.

    Honestly I've never had a problem with the Nordiques logo, but maybe that's just because I like abstract designs already. I used to have a problem with the red outlines they added to numbers in the 90s, but even that grew on me over time.

    Thank you. A surprising amount of teams early on are monochrome even though I'm not the biggest fan, but I promise those will go away after today's team. Thank you for the honesty. I might try and incorporate some silver if I do the final updates, but I wanted to keep purple & red since it's unique now that the Raptors gave it up. Thank you, here is some more, namely the Panthers and the Bears! First being Carolina: Logos -I actually really like the Panthers' logo set. The new update makes the logo seem sharp and fierce, especially on a black background like the helmet is for this series. I eliminated silver to distance them from the Lions, focusing on black, electric blue, and white. I also made an effort to incorporate the new wordmarks into the identity, so they are seen on the jerseys. Uniforms -With all the talk in the other thread about a possible Panthers rebrand, I thought the timing of this was fitting. Noticeably I switched the helmet to black in the absence of silver, and decided to go with a three-stripe "claw mark" pattern throughout the set. The stripes on the jersey remain in the same spot that the current, real-life sleeve stripes reside. Overall, the new stripes were an effort to make the helmet, jersey, and pants consistent. -I went with an italicized number font based off of the wordmark, which fits the sleek, sharp look of a panther. I initially opted for no outline, but added one because I like how it looks on the black jersey. -Although the home & away are shown currently with white pants, I would say the Panthers would wear black pants about half of the time still. I think the black-out look at home could be really sweet. -For the Color Rush, I stayed with the electric blue, but almost went with solid black numbers, like the wordmark. I decided to ultimately keep the alternate jersey numbers, just because. If you guys want to see what the black numbers would look like, I can make that happen. Now here come Da Bears! Logos -The Bears are classic, they stay pretty much the same besides the removal of the "GSH" on the sleeves and the readdition of an orange alternate. Uniforms -The only change I made for the Bears was to flip the colors of the stripes on the navy pants in order to match the sleeves of both the home & away jerseys. -I also added the orange alternate back, this time with navy numbers based on the 1930's jersey. I also added the orange pants because I actually really like the infamous "Madden" look. -I kept all-navy for the Color Rush, I actually think it looks pretty good. I'd love to hear any comments you guys have on what you think!

    Fixed your post. Washington Post -- I guess that Raiders assume they will be printing money in Las Vegas. Even then, this is a ridiculous contract.

    A crime when it comes to number retirement is that there’s no rumbling of any further Angel retirements. They have a bench coach and former owner up there but nobody from the one team that ever did anything.

    Its not a matter of flooding the market per se, but rather cannibalizing an already-existing market. Every team can (and does) sell throwback & vintage-inspired gear - no gimmick game needed. Jim Kelly jerseys are still hot in 2018. While I can't find the sales figures, I also see red Bills jerseys all over Buffalo, which didn't happen when Puma offered a near-identical design as a fashion jersey in 2000. That being said, when the Color Rush gimmick runs its retail course, I would love to see newer teams fauxback their way into a throwback gimmick - i.e, a kitschy, Oiler-colored, vintage-style Houston uni

    Shows how much the steel industry has weakened in the past 60 years - that logo was recognizable by most Americans back when the Steelers logo was created in the 60's. I'm glad the Steelers are keeping it in the public conscious though.

    It’s got a pointed top (the only letter with that characteristic), it was intentionally left open at the bottom, and it’s interlocked with another letter. I think there are some construction issues with that part, but I saw it as an ACFC monogram without question. The A and C at the corners are just support to make it read more like a card. Personally, I’d have probably gone for a solid spade in the center with the FC knocked out to avoid confusing the read, but I’d bet they used a monogram in the center to have an icon that can be used outside the card. A valid question: why is the A/spade purple and the C black. I think it should have been the other way around given that the spade is always black in an American deck of cards.

    This somehow gets lost/ignored around here. The Rams have had multiple opportunities to change to the classic colors, and could change any year they want going forward; they've had this uniform set forever. The only reason they continue to look bad is because they want their moment of glory in their now-delayed new stadium.

    No, the fans need to complain to the team for making the change knowing full well that the league rules would prevent them from looking good. I feel like this gets said too much around here, but I can't believe someone from the team green lighted that look. Someone needs to lose a job for this, unless the owner personally signed-off on it.

    Speaking of complaining, Boston sports fans citing the fcuking Ideal Gas Law to exonerate Brady from Deflategate forever has to be the most Boston sports complaint of all time. That couldn't have been anyone anywhere else! It was the Eldritch Abomination child of Car Talk and WEEI, without a doubt one of the most infuriating events in the history of North American sports.

    The yellow would look terrible, and would be 3 distinctly different uniform pieces worn at the same time. Terrible. Last years whites are history. They will more than likely be in white over white, their home unifor of this season.

    The Canadiens should have beat out the Blackhawks for the top spot, but I can deal with the Blackhawks winning it. It’s the next one after the Habs’ set, in my opinion. The Golden Knights have a great look but they don’t belong in a discussion about the greatest NHL uniforms of all time. Sorry.

    I know this won't exactly fly with some of the board vets, but I'll throw this in as my personal perfect matchup: I really don't like the Jags current unis at all, but seeing them in a Super Bowl would be a masterpiece to my eyes in any case. If they were miraculously allowed to bend the rules and wear teal, ohhhh baby! Bright colors look good for the Super Bowl, imo. I've personally always been partial to the 90's glory that is the teal and purple color scheme. Can't say particularly why, but I just can't get enough of it. Putting the Jags in any ideal matchup scenario is pretty controversial and I understand how a lot of folks would want to avoid this for general aesthetic reasons, but that won't keep me from keeping my fingers crossed.

    I like sports uniforms. So I enjoy seeing more of them. Are some terrible? Yep. Are some off-brand? Yep. But how boring would these boards be if everyone was like the Yankees and Canadiens? What the hell would people with this interest talk about? Give me more alternates. Give me throwbacks and fauxbacks. Give me crazy designs and weird concepts and experiments. GIVE ME MORE UNIFORMS TO LOVE AND HATE AND ARGUE ABOUT BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT'S FUN ABOUT LIKING SPORTS UNIFORMS.
