  1. 2018/19 Soccer Kits

    I'm really liking what Nike's doing right now. PSG and Chelsea especially. Creative use of patterns and striping with a modern take. I can dig.

    Wow, Warriors in white 6/7 games.
  3. In response to Evan Longoria's comments that the Rays may be better off moving . . . What would people think about them going to Portland and becoming the Grays? The Portland Grays. Spawns from Rays, relates to the weather in the PNW the same way Rays related to the weather in Florida. There is obvious problem with the whitest major city in the country adopting the team name of perhaps the most famous Negro League team. I don't know if that could ever be overcome. It's a cool name though, regionally appropriate, and an homage to the Rays' history.

    If the 90's taught us anything, it is that no "aesthetic legacy" is ever at risk of being forever and completely altered.
  5. Welcome to the 90's

    I know the picture is from the 80's, but from the jerseys to the hair to the neon lights background, I had to share this image.
  6. Welcome to the 90's

    Weird. As a kid, those were my favorite jerseys in the league. Followed closely by the inaugural Raptors set. And this one: But for total 90's badness I gotta shout out these bad boys....

    Solid B, like everything else NIKE has produced this season. One little tweak of outlining "WOLVES" the same as the numbers would go a long way here. Sigh. Good, not great.

    I like the "idea" of the Knicks in orange jerseys, but I have a hard time imagining what that would look like. Anyone have some examples of when they wore them in the past? Maybe some photos?

    I'm digging that picture. Not only are both the Whitecaps and Rowdies kits pure fire and the mustaches on point, but it appears that BOTH teams are happily celebrating the Whitecaps championship? Wouldn't see that nowadays . . .
  11. Ugh, why do I feel such a sense of disappointment in this announcement? I've been looking forward to this for a very long time. On the one hand, yay! Finally some progress. It's 2018 and FINALLY there is enough pressure on the franchise that they'll succumb to doing the right thing. Progress. On the other hand, if they're finally able to admit their franchise is built around a racist and problematic brand . . . why retain the name? Why wait a year other than to make tons of money off of wistfully racist nostalgic fans? Why not relinquish the trademarks, re-brand the franchise, and embrace a new identity instead of clinging to the remaining threads of something that your current actions show you understand to be problematic? This is a sad half measure.
  12. MLB changes 2018?

    Forgive my ignorance, but what's the difference? Did they sit out a season or something?
  13. Can we vote now? 1. Cascades 2. Stags 3. Loggers / Lagers 4. Woodsmen All other names are boo boo.

    I believe it's actually "JVelcome TORONTO" Must be a Canadian thing? I dunno, I'm not from 'NORTH'.

    Looks like the sash on the Blazers' "Statement" Jerseys.
