    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Reminds me, I wonder if we'll get one of these three color match-ups for the Holy War of if Utah will go with black of some sort.

    Unless the portions of his design not incorporating the IP are completely original—i.e., something unique above the traditional hockey jersey design—I think the concept designer would have a hard row to hoe to get any sort of compensation. Maybe for PR purposes, the team or Adidas might offer him a free customized jersey, but I can’t really seeing any attorneys willing to take the matter except on a strict per diem fee arrangement.

    The problem is if he’s talking about legal recognition of the alleged misappropration of his Rangers concept—i.e., copyright infringement in this case—the guy has very little original expression for the law to recognize. Not only that, a significant portion of his design—the Rangers logos—is owned by someone else, and the entity he is accusing of misappropriation has a license to use those marks while he has no authorization to use them. He would be infringing the Rangers’ copyrights and trademarks right if he were to try use his design in a commercial manner (right now, he’s arguably safe from both types of infringement under a fair use affirmative defense). As a potential infringer (but for his current affirmative defense), it’s probably not a good idea pick a fight the IP owner or its licensees.

    Ugh… Minnesota’s attempt to “Salute to Service” by recoloring their already tacky helmet oars as US flags look like strips of bacon from behind. ?

    It’s good, but I think Sparty would look better with green shells.

    The kelly green would look good with metallic gold britches. The mustard yellow britches UA has Notre Dame wearing would look better with the darker green.

    Technology evolves. It’s a similar story with volleyball. I can’t think of the last time I used an old-school 18-panel volleyball, let alone one that was just white. The colored balls make it so much easier to see the ball and read the spin, plus the new paneling makes the ball fly more true. With newer materials, the balls stay rounder longer and have a better feel to then the old leather balls.

    I assume it’s a shade similar to their Fenway Winter Classic jerseys:

    I'm definitely biased but these are bad. Photorealism is great for matte paintings in movies, but I prefer sports logos that require some level of abstraction.

    Wasn't the Statue of Liberty logo design based at least in part on Mike Richter's helmet? Richter had just won the Stanley Cup in 1994, was the MVP of the World Cup of Hockey in 1996, and therefore would have been at the height of his popularity when the alternates were introduced during the 1996-97 season. Maybe the Statue of Liberty is cliched, but the logo was already a part of Rangers lore even if it was first used as a part of the goalie's mask, so the new alternate logo was brilliant in that it was a design the fans would immediately gravitate to.

    Unique Team Names?

    People seem to forget that Tulane, Georgia Tech, and Sewanee were charter members of the SEC, along with Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Tennessee, and Vandy. Sewanee left in the 40s, but Tulane and Tech stuck around until the mid-60s.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    It's probably no surprise a BYU fan chose Danny Ainge and Dale Murphy... As a Cubs and Twins fan, I'm surprised I forgot to include these two to the sky blues, though I'm not quite old enough for them to make me nostalgic:

    Lots of Provo in this thread. I’m not from Provo, but my grandpa is and my grandma’s from Lindon. As a third generation BYU grad, Provo will always feel like home for me.
