    Love the snark coming from the person who was asking for a couple days in a row in the Jaguars uniform thread if there were any updates and had to be told to settle down.

    Imagine the US Army telling you not to do something, and then doing it anyway. Lol.

    Any tiny graphic improvements the Braves made were undone by larger (and bad) stylistic changes like the all-navy road caps, getting rid of the vertical arches, the superfluous cream alternate, various other colored alternates, and whatever is going on with the finish of that batting helmet. I'd deal with a few idiosyncrasies in the shape of the "A" in "Atlanta" if it means the Braves look exactly as they did when their games were on TBS and they won the division every year.

    People were also VERY confident that the Rams were getting new uniforms before their move. And VERY confident that the Broncos would after the Super Bowl.

    I don't love the All-Star jersey design, but let's not pretend that Adidas didn't churn out garbage that looked far worse than that.

    I had to dig deep for this one... Believe it or not, Rickey Henderson was not the first Henderson to wear #24 for the A's. This guy did it first while Rickey was playing for the Yankees:

    ...and won a solitary World Series. Winning the division every year for over a decade and failing to net more than one championship shouldn't be celebrated, it should be considered embarrassing for both the team and their division. It should put them in the same boat as the St. Louis Blues of the '80s-'00s. While there have been visual downgrades (e.g., road hat), it's not like the original was all that untouchable. The Braves looked far better in their late Boston/early Milwaukee days, with contrast-colored tomahawks and the Northwestern stripes on the socks. Put the "A" on the headwear, replace the black tomahawk with a navy one, and add the "Atlanta" script.

    this is a very interesting question, and for me it begs another question before i can give an answer: what is the intent? if the intent is to be true to a past uniform and apply an old design to a modern uniform template, i would like it to be as accurate as possible. misses on details can destroy that nostalgia and emotional resonance, at least for me. but, especially in football, old decorations like stripes don't work any more for modern templates — old sleeve stripes were a solution to a different problem which proposes new problems today; the Steelers jerseys will never again look like they did in the 70's. but if the intent is to take an old design and do something new with it, it has to be different enough from the original that it doesn't look like a knock-off. if you're too close to the old, its kind of like "what's the point? why didn't they just go all the way with the old design?". this is a very tricky direction to get right but the Blue Jays are probably the prime example of this.

    I know this isn't a common answer but is Don Baylor a Rockie to anyone else like he is to me? I know of all his accomplishments as a player, and I'm not trying to shove them aside but, as a Marlins fan since 1993, even though I was exposed to some baseball before that, Baylor was the manager of the other expansion team Rockies and that's always been what I think about first when I hear his name. I'd imagine you'd have to literally be someone who got into baseball in 1993 to feel this way, or at least someone who was a 90's Rockies fan first before knowing any other baseball.

    Perhaps, but it definitely wasn't stated that way.. The way it was stated was completely incorrect, since you can't beat a team you don't play.. If the triangle theory applies, then Bama beat Auburn 3 times by beating Clemson, LSU, and Georgia..

    Crap. I'll fix that in this post. I totally forgot. I had the idea for the home base shape, but seeing as how baseball isn't played at the host venue, it seemed unrealistic. I fixed the color, because you're right, and I fixed the fonts too. The Colorado 'C' was a good idea, but after putting in the ECHL (Now AHL) logo in its place, you're totally right. All good points. So anyways, here's the fixed logo. And here's the new team, with updated colors on the same jersey. I went for the Wild because the Avs and them have a rivalry, and it'd be a good way to get these two teems off on the right (maybe wrong) foot. What do you think about the update?

    but in all honesty, central florida, who went undefeated and beat BOTH bama and auburn, is the real national champion.

    As every great designer knows, when you need inspiration, you can't go wrong by invoking the Hatchet.

    Reliving a foolish mistake I made on these boards last year- Rasheed and Ben Wallace #30 for the Bullets.

    I always felt the Bruins did a fantastic job with updating their logo and making it feel modern while keeping what makes it work. Still a spoked B. Still feels like the Bruins logo. of course it could be adjusted some more like reducing the weight of the lines around the B but it's still a great update. And it's one of those things that after the update happens, you realize how bland the one before it was. Same could be said for the Blue Jays who (finanlly) came to their senses and got themselves out of the dark era They took what worked and enhanced it. Still feels the same but it's obviously different and modernized at the same time. But with the Jays there exists the example of tweaking something too much that it loses what worked yes the jay was modernized and maintained the ball, the leaf, and the split font. But it didn't feel the same. The Rams could almost be used as an example as well with their Charging Ram logo While I personally love the 40s feel of the one on the left, the updated STL logo is an improvement as it removes unnecessary details and gives it a modern edginess that designers think people want. But is this too much of a change? Kinda. It's still a ram's head down and ready to butt horns. The 40s logo has that classy old-tymey feel to it, while the STL one definitely looks modern. So it's almost an example of both. Where it retains the feel but also departs drastically from what made the logo work
