  1. considering helmet, shoulder, and pants: For their home set, they've got "single blue on white" twice and "double blue on white" once. For their road set, they've got "single blue on white" once and "double blue on white" twice. I don't know that I would care if they went "single blue on white" twice or "double blue on white" ... but why not pick one for all locations?! Or do you think it looks better as it is?
  2. For some reason the single stripe really strikes me as strange on the jersey.

    NHL 2018-19

    "Inspired by the colors of the game - crisp white, like a fresh sheet ice and contrasting black, like a brand-new puck - the environmentally-conscious uniforms create an instantly classic aesthetic that pays homage to tools of the game."
  4. Are they required to stick with the same dark jersey/pant combo the rest of the playoffs? I feel like that rule is in place for jersey, but I'm not sure about pants. I'm no fan of their mono-blue, but the grey pants against Cowboys' similarly colored pants is pretty unpleasant.
  5. Are the Rams "yellow horn" helmets actually different helmets than the "white horn" helmets, or are they just decals? If different helmets, why do they seem to get a pass on the mismatched helmet and jersey (navy and royal)? Didn't the original jerseys match better?
  6. Well I just wasted the last little bit searching old discussions and concepts... I just can't imagine how they can combine orange and pewter (two elements I love) and come out with a good result. For me a solid orange jersey just doesn't work with the pewter but I'd prefer them to be an "orange" team rather than a "red" team. How about this for some lols:
  7. Antonio Bryant agrees: https://www.tampabay.com/blogs/bucs/2018/11/30/ex-buccaneers-receiver-ditch-the-uniforms/ Honestly the current set wouldn't be awful with either of the old helmet logos and a normal font. But to me the matte pewter isn't on the same level as the previous sets. I'm just torn on which era I prefer; Bruce ('76-'96) or pewter ('97-'13). Also, not sure I understand what made the reversible-Bruce logo interesting. Is it not just flipped horizontally?
  8. The Chiefs Cardinals matchup was not pleasant to watch:
  9. Fair enough, but I enjoy being able to quickly tell "who is who" in a big pile of bodies. I think the Rams' royal+yellow is overall better looking, but navy+white looks better against Green Bay.
  10. haha I should specify that I squint like Robert and pretend the gold isn't on those jerseys! From a television-watching perspective I just prefer the contrasting color schemes. Maybe this illustrates what I mean:
  11. Rams are in throwbacks, which look nice. However, why do this against another team with yellow pants (GB) ?!? Also Pittsburgh's italicized numbers are way better - they add a classy uniqueness without being cheesy.
  12. This has probably been mentioned, but yesterday was the first time I noticed: the black Jacksonville pants have a tiny bit of teal at the bottom (only on the back?). I assume this was done to break up the leotard look. I'd say it's at least partially successful.
  13. I haven't really created much new content for this, but thought some of you might be interested. Let's pretend I'm in charge of all the uniforms in the NFL. Here are the rules I've imposed: - one helmet per team - two home and road sets per team (primaries in top row, alternates on bottom) - no set will have the same color jersey and pants (except white) - no set will have the same color pants and upper socks (except white) Given what each franchise has ever worn (thanks to gridiron uniform database), here's what I feel is best: Now let's say that I'm allowed to make slight changes: in that version I: - unified some colors (Cleveland, Dallas, New Orleans, New York Giants) - eliminated non-team-colors from uniform (Grey facemasks from Arizona, Cleveland, San Francisco. Black helmet logos from Kansas City, San Francisco.) - changed Patriots road socks - changed white Seattle pants to grey; still not really happy with color balance What say ye?
  14. doesn't clicking on it resize?
  15. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I miss the shiny metallic pants many football teams used to wear. I know this is a few years late, but why haven't teams fixed this error?! A google search led to this article, which has MANY links and interesting bits about Notre Dame's pants specifically (and also lists other schools that went away from that style). https://www.onefootdown.com/2015/4/6/8213323/notre-dame-a-history-of-the-fighting-irish-football-pants This picture in particular was weird (half metallic half matte pants): To me there is no contest, and I don't understand why teams went away from the metallic, ESPECIALLY when the helmets now clash with the pants

    @AstroBull21@masterchaoss I actually liked the font. Maybe it's not a sterotypical "agressive, sports-team" looking font, but I thought it sort of goes well with the blue and white simplified identity it seems they may be going for. It's visible in this video: https://wwwyoutube.com/watch?v=3dEl38-kOKk (add the dot as it doesn't like to be embedded)

    Carolina wearing black socks today on the road: (as they did last week) while they usually use blue: Based on gridiron database, this year is the first time it's been done.

    Ok I'm a dork, but here are some other from history (if I'm understanding right). I omitted some of the low contrast ones (Baltimore, Detroit, New England) :

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    It's always bothered me that Nebraska's helmet font doesn't match their logo. They have the same problem with their helmet numbers, where the font doesn't match the jerseys. Have they ever worn jerseys that have the more "rounded" number font?

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I just saw VT highlights, I hadn't seen their 2018 jerseys. I like the template, seems like a nice mix of traditional "hoops" on the shoulders with a modern twist: However, I'm not so sure about #3's tackling technique against FSU.

    I mean, in fairness, these Oregon unis aren't so bad. I am by no means a fan of the contrasting nameplate, but I wonder why they didn't do something like this to make it feel like a part of the jersey:
  24. Kansas City: "Let's have a pretentious identity to differentiate ourselves in the MLS" Salt Lake: "hold my beer" Miami: "Woooo! Hold my coke!"
