    Colleges In Need For A Logo Rebrand

    It looks like it should be on a hot sauce bottle.

    IHOP Name Change Coming 6/11

    It's probably not an official name change, just a promotional one to advertize their new burgers. And that logo does not work as well with the b instead of the p. The decender of the p makes a nose, while the ascender on the b isn't really anything.

    Your least favorite team color combination.

    Orange and purple. I dislike the color orange to begin with, and when paired with purple I especially don't like it. It's very visually jarring to me.

    Report: Nike to Take Over MLB Uniforms in 2020

    That's debatable.

    Report: Nike to Take Over MLB Uniforms in 2020

    I don't like the idea of the manufacturer's logo being on the front of the jersey, but at least Nike's logo is less obtrusive than UA's. So that's one good thing. There was probably some radically different new designs coming anyway, whether UA or Nike, so that doesn't make much difference to me.

    Scientifically accurate raptors

    I think it's turkey-sized actually. And while the movie was being made they found the Utahraptor, which was even more like the movie raptors than deinonychus, except that it had feathers. The Jurassic Park dinosaurs not having feathers can be explained away by the scientists filling in the gaps with frog DNA.

    Uniform/jersey misunderstandings

    I have a throwback Mud Hens hat that's like the one Jamie Farr wore on M.A.S.H., and I've had people outside the Toledo area mistake it for an old Texas Rangers hat. To be fair, they are nearly identical except for the shade of blue. When I was in grade school, we were encouraged to wear Ohio State and Michigan stuff on the Friday before the game. Since I am a Notre Dame fan, I would wear my ND stuff. Around fifth grade or so, I wore my Notre Dame home jersey, and OSU fans would say to me, "Michigan sucks!", and I'd say, "Uhh, yeah, this is a Notre Dame jersey." This was coming from people that routinely misidentify their own team as "Ohio." After having enough of that nonsense, all of my ND stuff has been almost exclusively kelly green.

    The NFL's "Five Year Rule" Explained

    The NFL doesn't enforce the rule on pants because they don't sell pants. Since the current rule was enacted, several teams have introduced new pants without counting as a new uniform as far as I know: Rams (obviously), the Ravens' gold pants, the Redskins' gold pants, the Giants' white pants, the Panthers' black pants, and the Browns' previous brown and orange pants. I'm not sure about the Jags' old stripeless black pants, as those coincided with the away jersey number color change, but even that only lasted 4 years. I'm still not sure how the Rams got away with the helmet change though, since those are sold. I guess there's no explicitly stated rule about decals and masks, so they found a loophole. I wonder how many gold-horned replica and mini helmets are still sitting around unsold.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    The Oklahoma update reminds me of Notre Dame's update two years ago. A nice update that is more soundly designed than what it replaced, but will go unnoticed by the vast majority of fans. Side Note: The Notre Dame section of the mothership is in serious need of updates. It's still using the previous ND logo, and the previous logo is improperly dated to 1964, while it came out in 2010. Part of the problem is that they had been so inconsistent over the years with slight variations, and used multiple versions at the same time. It was so damn confusing that my replica 2001-2003 adidas jersey has the ND sleeve logo from the Champion jerseys.

    What do we know about the new Dolphins set?

    What do we know about the new Dolphins set?

    The 2, 3, 5, 6, and 9 only have one rounded corner, with the other corners being block. The 0 and 8 have four rounded corners. All the block corners of the fist group should be rounded, so that the set is consistent with itself and with the wordmark. And the 1 and 7 should have the right side rounded instead of the left, although I don't find the 1 as bad as the others.

    Is it too much to hope that they fixed the number font?

    Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Looks like the same stripes to me. You just can't see the cuff in the back view.

    Ranking the NFL/Nike Uniform changes

    Vikings: A- ; The unnecessary number horns and black mask keep them from being great. Lions: B+ ; Sleeve logos (mismatching ones at that) are stupid, and the number font could be better. Dolphins: C+ ; Overall nonoffensive, except for the tramp stamp, washed out colors, and dumb number font. Pick either rounded or angled corners, not both. Seahawks: D+ ; I like the colors and pants stripe. Everything else is overdesigned garbage. Jaguars Ver. 1: D- ; An okay jersey and pants keep them from an F. Titans: F ; An incohesive mess. Browns: F ; Do I need to explain? Buccaneers: F ; See above. Jaguars Ver. 2 could range from C to A based on what we've heard and seen.

    Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    I feel like the uniform had 3 different people design each piece, with the only instruction being, "incorparate the sword somehow." Nothing about this set is cohesive. The helmet stripe didn't bother to mimic the shape of the sword logo, and the pants stripe is like a cross section of the sword. And the angle of the pants stripe is annoyingly in the wrong direction. If it were going the other way, at least it would match the armpit panel. But now the armpit panel looks even more out of place and tacked on.

    Are they colorblind? Your friend is obviously from an alternate universe where Carolina's uniforms look absolutely nothing like their uniforms from this universe.

    It's appropriate that Teal is back not long after we hear that the primary may be teal after all.

    Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    Everything about that uniform is worse than what it is replacing. The gray yoke instead of Columbia blue is terrible. The armpit stain reeks of, "Oh :censored:, we need to add Columbia blue somewhere!" And Nike yet again ed up the number font. That font is atrocious, and they have a perfectly good unique font already available. What a major disappointment. Still probably the third best Nike design so far, sadly enough.

    NFL 2018 changes

    He seems to be super serious about it, seeing all his tweets with that hashtag. And he seems to have good taste in uniforms. Some of the fans posting concepts not so much. I like their current design, but it's been ruined by Nike's inabiliy to make green, or make the shoulder stripes look decent. If we knew they would end up looking like that picture I'd be all for a change, but we know Nike would have to throw in some dumb twist that will mar an otherwise good look.

    You sure do love hyperbole. I'm beginning to think that you are the actual color Volt that has gained sentience.

    Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    What is this? It can't be the front of the jersey because there's not that much space between the collar and numbers. Please don't be pants Please don't be pants Please don't be pants Please don't be pants Please don't be pants...

    Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    You can tell it's bullsh!t because nobody is coming out with side panels anymore. What decade is this guy living in? My theory is that they still have the contrasting yoke, but the front 2/3 is columbia, and the back 1/3 is gray.
