  1. I have no problem with the different striping schemes for home versus away. But I’m a Blackhawks fan, so what do I know.
  2. The Bears have a similar problem with their pants. They could easily remedy it on their white pants by adding narrow white stripes between the blue and orange stripes and on the blue pants by reversing the orange and white and playing with the widths. But like the Colts’ look, it doesn’t bother me because it’s been going on for so long.

    Logo upgrades that were actually UPGRADES

    The cleaned-up Predators logo is a definite upgrade:
  4. I've always thought monochrome teams like the Colts (and Jets) benefit from striped socks.

    The designer still works within the design parameters set by the client, and the client will need to sign off on the final product, so if the client is incompetent, sometimes the designer is limited on what he can do to salvage the product.

    Golden Pooh-bears were orders of magnitude worse than Lady Libertys. And the B’s are my Eastern Conference team. At least the Lady Libertys matched the aesthetic of Mike Richter’s classic mask.

    Or the team can always bring the non-yellow set on the Nashville road swing.

    I just hope fans of other sports realize that hockey fans started it first!

    I actually find the hall-of-farmer running the gauntlet very distracting and think it takes away from the ceremony. If we’re talking trophy presentations, I like how the NHL presents the Stanley Cup (along with the Campbell Bowl and Prince of Wales Trophy) to the team captain, not the owner, GM, or coach. I hope that never changes.

    I guess nothing’s ever a no-brainer these days, but the economist in me says if putting up with a dumb name means lower taxes, I can deal with it. On the other hand, the economist in me is also suspicious of taxpayers funding professional sports venues in the first place, but that’s for a different forum.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    This is the combo BYU went with in Boise. WMU is in white/white/gold. No snow, though.

    I wish they’d go back to the off-colored collars that made them unique.
  13. You might check with Badger themselves--it's sounds like they're being very active on this issue. Here's Badger's official response:
  14. Licensed apparel from Badger Sportswear has been traced to Uyghur concentration camps in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang. This goes well-beyond a mere "sweatshop"--for those unfamiliar, China has allegedly forcibly interned over 1 million ethnic Uyghurs simply because of their religious beliefs. To avoid running afoul of the guidelines of this board, be clear that I'm not advocating any sort of boycott, but I'm putting this out there so that people on this board can make their own decisions. If this post should be in a different location, please move it, but I beg the mods not to remove it because I think awareness of this issue is important. I'm sure this won't be the last US company to have been found selling products made by interned Uyghurs. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/us-sportswear-traced-to-factory-in-chinas-internment-camps/2018/12/17/2ecf5b5a-0228-11e9-958c-0a601226ff6b_story.html For those not aware of the issue, here's a backgrounder: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/resources/idt-sh/China_hidden_camps

    I’d like to see the B’s ditch the white jerseys altogether and pair the Orr-era black jerseys with the early 60s gold jerseys (or basically pair the current black jerseys with something based on the 2010 Winter Classic jerseys). And gold socks of course, but not the ones from the early 60s.
