  1. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    It's not. Allow me to clarify: it's the same old jags identity they've had since '95 despite several uniform changes over the years. Their uniform/logo changes remind me of the sharks or 49ers (or countless others) over the years, meaning little to no impact to the average fan/consumer, just new product to purchase.

    Do they still have the party pavilion with the big hot tub?

    They do not look like a new team... they are still the same old jags with overly simplistic uniforms. The little nike details on the socks and cuffs will not even be noticeable.
  4. Color Rush Thursday is dead

    Yes and my definition is superior
  5. nba and mlb are all cable deals these days which is subscriber based and cash up front deals. ratings are somewhat a proxy for popularity but not necessarily valuable as the nielsen ratings of old.
  6. UA - MLB Deal Delayed Until 2020

    My guess that this is a financial issue and not uniform related. From what I recall ua bought out majestic's final year to get started early. Given ua's financial woes of late this would make sense to delay if you can legally back out of the early start agreement.
  7. Geography might matter a "great deal" in provincial markets where the city identity is dependent on a sports franchise. Small market teams like the Sacramento Kings, Winnipeg Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars etc. may need to be joined at the hip to sell themselves but big sports brands like the Cowboys, Raiders, and Yankees have transcended the cit limits and local media market in the digital age. I would put the Warriors in that category now
  8. I disagree with that. Most brand marketers would tell you that applying geography to a name can suppress brand value and marketability especially from a global perspective. Golden State Warriors is almost a nickname unto itself. When the Raiders got into their long running spat with Oakland they basically scrubbed the city name from their merchandise which I think was a smart move as their brand is not bound to geography. I also think Moreno should market his team as The Angels but the stadium lease may still preclude him from that.

    If anyone had half a brain between nike and the owners, they would just eliminate the monochrome rule and allow a new uni mashup every year if a team chose. The broncos and chargers were excellent interpretations of how you can incorporate old and new designs. I remember back in the early 00's nike did a line of alt throwback nba swingman jerseys in current team colors which were really cool. That seems like it would be a great uniform program for the shield but whatever.
  10. It is when your franchise value is approaching $3B. No regrets here.
  11. Exactly. It's a dumb name but it's their dumb name. Their fans embrace it and they have a successful brand built around the name. Also throwing some randomness into franchise names makes a league unique as opposed to complete standardization which tends to give off a sterile failed upstart league vibe.
  12. College Football uniforms- 2018

    I am positive that ua would not pay more than their standard rate for a small p5 school. They don't have a large enough alumni base outside the pac nw and are rarely on the tier 1 tv broadcasts.

    nike is not known for restraint or extended periods of minimalism, it runs completely contrary to their ethos.
  14. Colts celebrate 35 seasons in Indianapolis with commemorative logo

    Can't wait commemorate these amazing seasons.
  15. College Football uniforms- 2018

    My anecdotal theory is that nike has 3 major design phases that they cycle through: retro which is pretty rare these days, modern color blocking to accentuate their overdesigned template of the moment, and minimal to accentuate their simplified template of the moment. We are currently in an extreme minimal phase for cfb.
