    The wordmark "Los Angeles" is so out of place in that jersey.

    He did however return from retirement just to play in the 1992 All-Star Game which took place in Orlando. Not justifying it, but I'm just saying there's a weird coincidence here. I definitely don't like this jersey as much as the Black Mamba jersey but I'm also not mad at it because as stated before in this thread by me and several others it's just an alternate. This City stuff isn't so bad, I mean seriously, think about what was worn in the past....

    Because over time, different sports develop different aesthetics. Context is everything.

    Agreed, I’d also add the bolder, simpler, and more superior tiger stripe treatment on the shoulders and pants as well: I still scratch my head as to why they ever went away from this. It was so good.

    Heres the way I see it. With the set prior to the current uniform, the Bengals took a gimmick and turned it into a football uniform. With the current set, they took a football uniform and turned it into a gimmick. And that’s the difference.

    I hate to say it, but if you're going into the season without being the beacon of hope for a city after a tragedy and without the Island Oasis of Misfit Toys shoulder chip you're just a second year team with a derelict farm system.

    I think a fun photo essay would be LeBron James in every jersey he ever wore, especially the ugly alternates foisted on him because of who he is. It's less an issue now than it was his first go-round in Cleveland, but man has he been in some clunkers. Jordan wore a couple of Bulls uniforms, the black alt, and the home/road Wizards and Bullets throwback. Larry Bird was just in green or white, right? The legends got to maintain some dignity.

    Do you mean monochrome light colors look good in baseball and monochrome light colors look ugly in hockey? Because both these teams are monochrome red and it isn't the hockey uniform that is ugly

    I mean yeah. There are only so many ways to interlock a B and a C. I went with this style of lockup cause it reinforces the helmet and road striping at some of the overlap points. Any resemblance to actual logos, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

    The Giants have also happened to have lost ~8 times while wearing their normal white jerseys and ~8 times while wearing their blue jerseys in that same time span. Retire them too??

    I think at some point I went through all his Cavs ones. You've got: 03 white 03 wine 70s candy cane throwbacks 80s orange throwbacks mid-aughts navy (the best thing the Cavs have ever worn and it was during an era where navy made sense) 70s feather throwback Royal blue fauxback 80s/90s blue throwback Wine & gold fauxback 2014 navy 2010 white 2010 wine 2010 gold Slightly different wine & gold fauxback 2016 black 2017 white 2017 wine 2017 black 2017 gray And at least 3 different XMas game jerseys That's 22 jerseys with one team. Might be missing one. There was a slightly different navy alt the Cavs had during his absence too. Plus the Heat had home, road, alt, white-out, throwbacks, XMas games... You can throw in LeBron's Team USA and All-Star jerseys and now the damn Lakers losing their :censored:ing mind.

    Adidas made plenty of ugly alternates in the last years and the sleeves were too much of a stretch to work, but for the most part the home and road uniforms were avoided all the silliness. With Nike we don’t even have home and roads instead of the Association Icon Statement Earned City crap, resulting in the Lakers not being able to wear their purple uniforms for a quarter of the season and Nike is the one which pushed complete armhole trim, uninterrupted waistband striping and centered shorts notches out the window.

    WASHINGTON NATIONALS (former San Diego Padres) - National Fatherhood This one was a bit of a rabbit hole to climb down, but it produced some fascinating results. It's been widely reported that the San Diego Padres almost moved to DC in the 1973-74 offseason. Owner C. Arnholt Smith was looking to sell the team due to financial struggles and in anticipation of the IRS charging him for tax fraud. Joseph Danzansky, President of Giant Foods, made an offer to buy the Padres for $12 million and move them to DC. The move was nearly successful, with the NL unanimously approving it and Topps designing their 1974 set with it in mind: The team even developed a road uniform that fit with the stylistic conventions of the early/mid-1970s while also replacing the brown & yellow banana set with a traditional navy & red:1 However, it was not meant to be, as the team would have to pay off the hefty amount of money left on their San Diego Stadium lease (15 years' worth).2 Couple that with an $84 million lawsuit from the city for breaking the said lease, and you've got a problem. The sale fell through, which allowed Ray "The Founder" Kroc to buy the Padres and keep them in San Diego. However, what if the relocation went through and Washington got a new team? How would their appearance change as they chased trends and updated their look upon moving to the Navy Yard Stadium? Going off of this Washington Post article from 2016, I figured that the most likely name for the team would have been "Nationals."3 I could only find one source for the "Stars" name that's been often reported by historians (based on a guess made by Ebbets Field Flannels' Jerry Cohen).4 Danzansky's son and Peter Bavasi cited the "Nationals" name as the leading candidate, so it seemed the best idea and more distinct than "Stars." Their colors would still be navy & red, and unlike the modern Padres, navy & red wouldn't be an issue. The basic structure of this design is that of the 2004-2011 San Diego Padres. with a few cues from the 2005-2010 Nationals thrown in. Drop shadow would only appear on white and grey backgrounds, with navy backgrounds featuring basic outlines (and some allusions to the shadow split in the star/letter design). The Astros' 2013-present block font is the base, as a modern block style that fits with the prototype and the modernish font I call Petcopark.ttf. The primary logo uses a home plate backing (Padres) with a new take on the three-star pattern of the DC flag. The secondary is my modernization/de-North Starized version of the prototype cap logo, while the tertiary is an update of a supposed Sen(ationals)itors design. The uniforms borrow from the Padres' 2004-2011 set, with some adaptations for navy/red. A cursive script is on the home uniform, complete with an inverted tail. I used the 2005-2009 Nats' arching pattern on the road uniform, which is my way of mimicking the bowtie wordmark. The numbers are double outlined block standard, a la the 1991-2003 Padres. I added a sock stripe pattern meant to mimic the asymmetrical pattern on the sleeves and pants (no red/navy touching). The navy alternate sheds the drop shadow and adds the tertiary patch, akin to the Padres' old navy alt. A fauxback to the 1974 uniforms is the second alt, with an appropriate cap and an adjustment to the sleeve patch. I based the script off of the 1974-77 home look, which fits well with the "cursive/fancy at home, block on road" pattern used by the Padres throughout their history. The primary dugout jacket features the cap logo on the front and the primary on the back (with the tertiary on the sleeve), while the fauxback utilizes the prototype's "Washington" wordmark. It was surprising how well the Padres' formula worked for the Nats. While I would never want the current team to adopt anything that resembled this set, I liked dissecting the 2004-2011 Padres' identity and figuring out what made it work. C+C is appreciated, as always! Up next, a funny little twist! 1 Author's Note: When we say we want the Padres to bring back brown & yellow, the 1972-73 banana peels aren't an option. 2 Credit to @bosrs1 in this CCSLC thread about the Washington Padres. 3 Jake Russell, “San Diego Padres Were Once so Close to Moving to D.C.

    After watching some Beverly Hillbillies reruns, it would seem Packers-Rams was once a much bigger rivalry than many of us remember; with several episodes making reference to it.

    That definitely falls into the "what the hell were they thinking?" category, though it probably made some sense at the time.

    Just to echo what a lot of people are saying, I remember Warren Sapp was upset when the NFL realigned and Tampa Bay was taken out of Green Bay’s division. The Packers had been their biggest rival to that point. By far.

    The classic Los Angeles mashed together with the modern Lakers is... not a good look. Still excited to hear how Nike will justify black on a Magic Johnson tribute

    Exactly, which you'd think for a jersey honoring Magic it should be more 80's-ish, no?
