  1. The Vapor Untouchable template is one of the best.
  2. NFL 2018 changes

    Very nice, but I still think it's weird the gold shading on the head switched. Technically they changed the logo, but they didn't.
  3. Teams Due for a Rebrand

    I don't think the drop-shadow on the numbers adds anything, and I wish they wore gray (if not silver) pants.
  4. adidas' contract with MLS expires in 2024, but adidas has always extended it (since 2004) before it's up for open bidding.
  5. I think the Dbacks' black/sedona/teal scheme is pretty awesome, and a lot better than the normal black/sedona/khaki.
  6. NFL 2018 changes

    The HOF edition is just for Madden. The standard version of the game will also have him in a Cowboys uniform. It doesn't mean Owens got into the HOF because of his days as a Cowboy.
  7. MLB changes 2018?

    Sounds like they're describing a Lids exclusive hat. New Era has the correct fish in their graphics files, as they make plenty of hats with the correct 1993-2011 logo. Also it's kind of odd they'd say the hats will have a 25 anniversary patch since the regular 2018 hats don't have that. edit: Welp...Bmac just answered my doubts below. It looks like the top fin is the same as the original?
  8. Probably develop their own.
  9. Fanatics will be manufacturing all the retail jerseys and apparel, and plant Nike's logo on them, just like the new NFL deal.
  10. I think Nike will be in on the design process for new MLB identities (and alternates), as they are with NFL and NBA.
  11. What are the projected sales margins for hats in each league? If Nike could make a substantial profit from NFL hats, wouldn't it be easier to take over that segment? And what has changed in the hat market since 2012?
  12. Well, 25% of New Era hats are the best hats. The other 75% of New Era hats are poorly sewn, off-centered, poorly-sized crap that you have to return.
  13. Why doesn't Nike have the NFL hat contract then?
  14. Unpopular Opinions

    Hopefully not too similar. A Yankees South look would only work if they had a top-5 payroll. Plus I think Jeter has too much respect for the Yankees' look to not bring it to Florida.
  15. 49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    “A team can’t have four jerseys, right?” is a completely different question than “A team can’t have two Color Rush jerseys, right?” You asked if a team can have four jerseys...yes, they can. I didn’t think they could have two CR jerseys, but maybe so. (Apparently so if the black set is just an alternate).
  16. 49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    You’re kind of shifting the goal posts, as excluding CR unis was not part of the original question. This new 49ers uni is a Color Rush uni.
  17. 49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    Broncos, Jaguars, Texans, Dolphins, Ravens, Bengals, Browns, Falcons, and Seahawks have/had four jerseys
  18. Teams Due for a Rebrand

    Memphis already copied the Bengals and not much uproar occurred..
  19. 49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    I would guess they chose white to keep the legacy of the SB-winning red jerseys in tact. Plus it satisfied color rush.
  20. 49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    Thursday nights are no longer Color Rush games. And they could have chosen red if they just wanted an alternate.
  21. NFL 2018 changes

    Agreed, I'm just wondering if Fanatics will now have more say. Seems like they would have more ability to discount Fanatics-made Nike gear...but maybe not...
  22. Unpopular Opinions

    I think their current set is a bit better (not by a huge wide margin though, as I was a fan of the 90s set). My complaint is I wish they'd go back to the brighter red instead of the more crimson color.
  23. NFL 2018 changes

    Not saying you're wrong, but I've contacted them like three times, and each time I've experienced great service. One time, due to FedEx destroying the package, they credited me with a little extra FanCash (plus re-sent the item I ordered at no extra charge). I guess I've been a little lucky with their CS staff.
  24. Teams Due for a Rebrand

    The Nuggets' circular shaped logo has a basketball.
  25. NFL 2018 changes

    I don't think this is the first time a third party has made fan gear and put a major manufacturer's logo on it...seems like there were a number of times when a bunch of bulk merchandise had to be made and Nike (or Big Company X) contracted its business to other manufacturers, who just stamped the bigger company's logo logos on it I do wonder what will become of the Legend (sublimated), Game (Nike's screened replica) and the Limited (higher end replica). Does Nike license those templates to Fanatics for production? Surely Fanatics won't have the regular old-school Pro Line replicas for everybody at $100...right? Fanatics shirts are pretty low quality. Logos are often off-centered (either u/d or r/l) on shirts and they have that weird chemical smell when you open them. I'm not sure if we'll see a decrese in design quality, and product quality seems like it's been on a downward slope for sometime. This move does have some potential relief for customers, as Fanatics rarely puts Nike stuff on sale, so by having all production in-house, there's a better chance of seeing Nike-logoed products on sale over the next 10 years to move product out the door.
