  1. 2018 MLS Kits

    Late to the party on LAFC with an unpopular opinion... the basic black with metallic gold trims is a little boring and monotone, so the coloured sponsor logo actually lifts the kit as a whole.
  2. 2017 MLS Kit Matchups

    Colorado probably wore the yellow kit to avoid the white shorts/(partly) powder blue socks clash. Clashes aren't only about the shirt.
  3. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    I like the Asheville City badge. Maybe it needs a third colour in there to make it pop a little, but its well executed.
  4. 2016 Olympics

    It helps that Justin Gatlin's clouded past makes him the villain in the story.
  5. Melbourne Storm Rebranded

    There's a difference between rugby and the sport the Melbourne Storm play (rugby league) so the logo needs a tweak.
  6. Brutalist buildings

    My alma mater, University of Queensland in Brisbane has a number of James Birrell designed brutalist style buildings; my accommodations at Union College perhaps being the best of them. Built from the late 1960s through the 70s it snakes through the existing trees from the site to prevent clearing. The original caravan style windows pictured above have now been replaced by more modern styles but the building remains otherwise the same. Some might find the concrete construction a little hard on the eyes, but when you see it amongst the very green landscape it's almost like a scene from some post-apocalyptic film where the forest has taken back over the city ruins.
  7. Euro 2016 uniform match-ups

    I'm coming around on the Nike kits. IF you have to do monochrome shirt/shorts the contrast socks give a nice bit of colour. But the sleeves are still stupid.
  8. Australian NBL signs with Mitchell and Ness

    Hard to maintain that throwback aesthetic and cram the usual 2-3 sponsors on to every piece of kit.
  9. 16-17 Soccer Kits

    Banana custard!
  10. New Sacramento Kings Logo Unveiled

    Only gripe is that the heraldic lion is hard to pull off without looking like so many other logos around the world. How well it stands out will depend on how the colours are used.
  11. 16-17 Soccer Kits

    Looks a bit like Sampdoria's kits went for a lie down.
  12. 16-17 Soccer Kits

    Not that similar but the grey/fluoro gives flashbacks to this kit:
  13. Worst injuries you ever saw

    Shaun Livingston's knee dislocation/break was fairly brutal from what I recall. Videos on youtube are grainy but his entire leg bends 90 degrees the wrong way from his knee. David Busst was another...
  14. Bizarre/Unusual Numbers on Jerseys

    It allows referees to signal player numbers with hand gestures to the scorers table.
  15. Counterfeit Scavenger Hunt

    When counterfeit merchandise goes wrong... And that was in Target
