  1. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    To be honest, I think they could get away with having some sort of unique C logo as well as an elf, and use them in tandem, sort of how the bears use their C and bear head mark.

    The dog actually represented both the team and the fans. The whole thing started when Frank Minnifield and Hanford Dixon started barking at each other in practice when the defense would win, then the fans started getting into it. The defense were the dogs, the fans were the pound. That said, I still like the elf better. The dog theme feels too specific to those particular teams, not the club as a whole. It would be like the Vikings maintaining a Purple People Eaters theme or the Jets having an NYSE theme going even when they’re terrible :-)
  3. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    As limiting as it is aesthetically, it’s a fantastic piece for the players, which is why they love it. Finding the balance between aesthetics and function is the key to its success.
  4. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I think that’s a good way to put it. I get that it’s supposed to be a tribute as opposed to a true throwback, sorta like the college football version of a Winter Classic jersey or something, but the way they presented it in the video, while very cool, gave the impression that the player lacing up the uniform that Knute wore. With that said, I still think the uniform itself would have been more successful, even as a tribute, if it was more vintage looking. The modern touches are an odd way to tell this story, at least to me.
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I think they went too far on these. The helmet and cleats are definitely the right concept, but the jersey itself should be more of a true homage, with solid white numbers and little else. The shoulder piping and sleeve print are the least vintage thing they could have done. They could have gotten away with ND on the sleeve, but they cluttered up the front with a triangle of big logos instead. Grey facemasks and no names are their thing, so why are they abandoned on a uniform that's supposed to represent ND heritage?

    Totally disagree. They don’t apply to and are completely unnecessary on a professional floor. College markings don’t belong there. The floor looks cleaner without them as well, so it’s a win-win.
  7. NHL 2017-18

    Pretty sure it’s been decades since wool has been a part of an NHL jersey.
  8. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I don’t think that’s the root of most people’s problem. You can’t honestly even call this a manufacturer logo, because the brand isn’t making (or contracting the making of) those helmets. That exposes it as just an advertisement, which is the reason people find it inappropriate.
  9. Minnesota Timberwolves

    That’s a great change. Grey makes a lot of sense for a team called the Wolves, and there’s still a lot of opportunity for them to own it, especially in combination with blue and a hint of green. I think you probably only need one blue at that point, but it definitely feels less generic, even if it is more Seahawksy.

    Just because something is there doesn’t mean it belongs. Again, they can wear whatever they want, wherever they want so long as there’s sufficient contrast with the opponent. I wouldn’t expect much to change at home, but I suspect they’ll be forced to wear white or gold more often on the road due to more teams opting to wear a colored uniform at home.
  11. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    I’m pretty sure that is a white uniform. Look at the detail shots compared to the player photos. That indicates to me that it’s the studio lighting giving them the blue cast.
  12. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    Zoom in on the photo and you will find out exactly where the inspiration for the short design came from. If we keep normalizing and accepting corporate advertising on places it’s not needed, every freaking square inch of the planet will be covered by it. There was a time when billboards and magazines and even web banners were enough. Next thing you know, there are going to be wheat pastes on the walls of Mammoth Cave and dissolvable ads floating on the Grand Prismatic. /rant From the looks of it, the back number is a single color version of the previous number style (which matches the wordmark), but the front numbers have corners that are much more square, similar to those used on the final script uniform, or even similar to the C in their monogram logo. Baffling. Overall, this is a definite upgrade, but not without its flaws. Eliminating black was a good move, but now it looks out of place on the logo. They need to recolor that. The highlight on the wordmark needs to go, maybe even the wordmark itself. I like the split color design on the shorts, but the forms don’t evoke nautical imagery to me as much as regular stripes would have. It doesn't bring to mind a sail enough for it to be shaped that way, in my opinion. I really love the light blue accent stripes, though. That adds depth and is a great complement. I do wish the nautical flags would have been more of a star here. I’m guessing they will be on one of the other uniforms, but it could be their signature, as was previously mentioned.
  13. Nuggets unveil new uniforms*

    But, the primary color and the wordmark are the two most dominant pieces of the uniform. It’s like saying, “Come on. The car isn’t *that* bad. It’s just rusty neon green and the windows don’t work.”
  14. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    The good: I like the approach to color. I don’t think they nailed the execution, but using the blue as a tonal complement to wine is unique and interesting. I do wish the white uniform had a little more blue. The bad: I think the sharp design evokes a low-level college template rather than an upper/tier professional team. It doesn’t look all that bad, but it feels trendy at best. The lettering, as we’ve discussed as nauseum, is not composed well and to me, sorely lacks the personality of downtown Cleveland. The blue trim is not needed on the Cleveland lettering. It adds almost no contrast. The numbers needed heavier trim if blue on wine was going to be a primary colorway. Overall, it is a more exciting, interesting set. The previous one was conservative to the point of being bland, so while there weren’t many flaws you could point to, there really wasn’t much of anything else to point to, either. It’s six or a half-dozen between old and new for me. It just depends on your taste.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    The Blackhawks and other teams that do this have identities that have been built over decades. You can’t compare that with what Nashville is trying to do here. The other option is to be the Sabres of the South. I think they made the right move.
