    Mid-1980s Golden State Warriors gold uniforms?

    The Warriors first adopted those gold throwbacks for the 1975-76 season.
  2. Saints are 2-0 in black pants and 0-1 in gold pants this season. Wouldn't be surprised to see them keep wearing black pants until they lose again.
  3. One theory I've heard from local radio host Steve Czaban, who works for the station that was sold by the team over the summer, is that the gold pants being phased out is another sign Bruce Allen is losing clout with the Redskins. Allen brought back the gold pants because the Redskins wore the gold pants when his dad coached the team in the 1970s. There may be something to that theory given that the team has a new business management team in place that came from the NFL office. And the Redskins have finally come clean that both their season-ticket waiting list and their sellout streak are both no longer existent.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I just read a story on The Athletic (subscription required) about Oregon's uniforms. Allegedly, no more "different uniform combo for every game." Essentially, they're wearing four uniform combos this year: Mono green Mono yellow Mono black White jerseys, white pants and a copper-looking helmet https://theathletic.com/534059/2018/09/19/oregon-uniform-combinations-cutting-back-2018-season/

    MLB: Gold Ribbons & Wristbands Worn Across Baseball Sept. 1st

    They should do this for all of the other special causes (Mother's Day with the pink for breast cancer, Father's Day with the blue for prostate cancer). But then they can't push merchandise on those days with just a ribbon.
  6. Saints wore their gold pants in the home opener last year. They usually don't break out the black pants until Week 2 or 3. Could be wrong this year, though.
  7. Agreed. The fascination with the Jets' 1978-97 logo and uniforms is probably a generation longing for the uniforms of its youth. I grew up in that era, but I find that logo and uniforms to be meh. Well, the current uniforms are the product of the previous generation longing for the uniforms of its youth. But I like them better. Just go to kelly green, keep everything else the same, call it a day. But that won't happen.

    NFL 2018 changes

    There's not enough contrast between the white and silver. If they're going to wear silver helmets, they need silver pants with the dark jerseys. I hope they don't do this again.

    When Baseball Teams Wear the Same Colour

    The Astros don't have orange helmets in the regular rotation. The last couple of times they've worn throwbacks at home with orange helmets, those helmets immediately get auctioned off/sold in the Astros Authentics store at MMP. I wish they had an orange helmet to wear with the blue jerseys because I believe the helmet should be an extension of the cap. Whatever cap you're wearing in the field, the helmet should look the same. The Astros have been cheap like that forever, going back to not having a red helmet when they had red caps. The Astros also did not have blue helmets with orange bills when they wore the blue/orange caps on the road (which they've apparently phased out, much to my chagrin).

    Mariners and Astros blue vs blue

    The Mariners wore gray Thursday night in Houston. Wear it again Sunday instead of the blue. The Astros only wear that blue top at home on Sundays. No reason word can't get over to the Mariners clubhouse to wear gray that day. The Astros have a set uniform schedule at home from which they only occasionally deviate. They've worn the white jerseys instead of the blue for the two Sunday night games they've had this year. And they wore throwbacks Friday night instead of the usual orange on Friday night. They wear white every other home game unless there is a throwback or special event (gold trim for World Series ceremonies the first two home games of the season and the usual holiday crap). Actually, I wish they wore alts more at home, especially any that allow for extra use of the orange/blue cap they wear with the blue tops.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Given Ole Miss' history with the Confederate flag, I'm not sure it's a good idea for Ole Miss to ever go with all-white uniforms that include a white helmet.

    MLB changes 2018?

    No. The A's had players wearing green and gold as far back as '74 (and possibly earlier, see below), and three different colored jerseys in the '75 ASG (see below), The Indians had Dennis Eckersley and Jim Kern wearing different colors in '77. So don't blame that on Rose. Furthermore, I miss the days of different colors in the ASG. Everyone is gray or white now, and that would be fine if they were all wearing the same uniforms. But since they're not, I would be fine with alternate jerseys coming back. It's an All-Star Game. I actually would hate to see them wear those American and National BP jerseys and hats for game use.

    MLB changes 2018?

    I'd love to have two titles. I'm still stunned finally to have one in 2017 after a 55-season wait. If anything, I've often thought Marlins fans don't deserve either title because they had to wait a whopping five seasons for their first. And the Miami-area fanbase isn't exactly a diehard base if the Marlins ownership had to have a fire sale in '98 after winning the first.
  14. And another. And count me in the camp that suspects Padres ownership is trying their damndest to muddy the waters and find any reason possible to avoid going back to brown. I'll believe the Padres will be back in brown on a full-time basis when I see the absence of any blue color in their uniform rotation.

    NFL Increases Use of Alternate Uniforms in 2018

    I am for anything that limits Nike's say-so in anything uniform related. They have made a mockery of the NBA's uniforms. It's absurd Nike, and not the teams, make the call on which jersey will be worn by which team.
