  1. Braves Nicknames on Jerseys

    The Rockets also opted to use Rudy Tomjanovich's nickname way back when. I've seen several photos of this and TOMJANOVICH on the back of his jersey, so it was something that was changed at some point.
  2. If you could make one change to each team...

    I've always feltthe Astros were a dark navy blue team with orange trim, so I would keep that the same. My tweak would be a non-block/non-cursive wordmark, similar to the shooting star jerseys of the 70's, but without the shooting star. Maybe add a single star to each stirup like that uniform had.
  3. College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    Yeah, I agree with this. Tulane's unique color scheme works because of how well the dark green makes the light blue pop. It works best on white. Grey muddies up the look.
  4. 2015-16 College hoops

    I can't unsee tiny ballerina skirts in those adidas horizontal stripes. Just a bad idea.
  5. Palladia is now MTV Live

    I hardly ever watch Palladia live, but it's one of my more recorded channels. Once a month or so I'll give an extended look through their guide and record future programmings of concerts that look interesting. It creates a pretty solid ready-to-watch concert list after a while.
  6. MLB 2016 Changes

    Is there a 2016 MiLB thread? If not, I'll put this here..
  7. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I remember watching that Gary Payton Sonics game anda Seattle fan having one of the more witty signs ever. It said, "Where's our StarBucks?".
  8. MLB 2016 Changes

    I didn't understand the gold addition when released and still don't see its conceptual purpose in thevacuum of designs on generic backgrounds,but I flew to Minneapolis and saw a three game set when the Astros were therelast August and thought it looked great in person and complimented the ballpark and surroundings perfectly. Feel free to fileaway to unpopular opinions!

  10. College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

    It's probably nostalgia, but I've always been fond of Houston's skinny UH and think they should use that full time. While the current mark is perhaps more balanced and.. "bold?", it has always seemed squished to me. They also switched to a variation of that mark shortly after the SWC dissolved and I tend to associate it with that period where they were having identity issues as an athletic department. A modern version of the skinny mark would help link current teams with the Andre Ware/Phi Slamma Jamma days. These arched wordmark throwbacks from homecoming a coil,e years back were sweet, but too vintage for full time. The helmet was really nice, though.
  11. College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

    It's from an FCS game this past weekend, but I thought this was a nice looking matchup. Sam Houston State at McNeese State. Definitely colorful:
  12. Hardest City for Fictional Concept Leagues

    I would argue that that is plenty as one is futuristic and the other is older/traditional. The spectrum is pretty large there. You could also include the city's history in the railroad industry, agriculture/cattle, massive medical center and modern day global corporate/energy power. Houston is actually pretty diverse for something like this relative to other cities.
  13. Nike, Texas deal not renewed (yet)

    From what I've read on Texas message boards, it seems to be a two horse race with Under Armour and Nike.
  14. Coca-Cola vs Pepsi logos

    Same here, but I've never really seen a smilie face either. I see an abstractly modified version of the long standing red/blue circle with stripe logo.
  15. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

    Black has never bothered me with the Suns. My perception of it has always been that the court represents desert imagery with the wood being various shades of sand, the orange and purple being the teams colors and black being parts burnt by the sun. That might be a stretch to some, but it's exactly how I've seen it since the first time they added black to the court.
