    One tweak you’d make to a uniform you already like

    Why not just put the plane by itself on the helmets and the complete roundel at the center of the field?

    Austin Bold FC

    Bad logo, bad name, bad everything. Really interesting roster construction. A 15 year old local phenom, plus three mid-30's foreign (ex-)stars, plus potentially Usain Bolt . . . all for a USL team in a city that will be getting an MLS team in no time. Very strange.
  4. Tha'ts what I'm talking about. The purple jersey has the black side panel that carries down to the shorts. The yellow and white don't, but they still have shorts stripes. They should have picked one design or the other. The presence of the side panel on the purple jersey annoys me more than the color of the side panel.
  5. I like that the black stripe carries into the shorts. I don't like that the yellow (and presumably white) shorts will have a stripe that isn't carried up to the jersey. The inconsistency is maddening. TBH, I'd be fine with the black on the purple jersey if the white and yellow jerseys had a similar contrasting stripe. Yellow w/ purple stripe White w/ yellow stripe Purple w/ black stripe Not my first choice, but it strikes the balance of modern and classic, while remaining coherent and consistent.

    On the subject of the Lakers’ Giraffe

    I could see a Giraffe mascot, with a giraffe logo, but no real direct connection to the basketball team branding beyond that.
  7. Seriously.... That ugly ass jersey would much better on Jayson Tatum.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Good catch. I guess I'd never really seen that shoulder pattern with such contrast. Rumors are of all new designs, so I doubt these are any indication of anything.

    Newfoundland Growlers Unveil Uniforms for Inaugural Season

    Great logo. Wish that the article mentioned the designer or firm who worked on it, but alas, they almost never do.
  10. My theory is they added the black side panel so sneakerheads and hype beasts can better match it to their kicks.

    Has this been talked about yet? Nike posting "Gridiron Grey 2.0" jersey for Oregon. Different shoulder and back graphics than the previous editions. Could be a teaser to the upcoming new Oregon unis? USC is the only other team with one of these GG2.0 jerseys, and it matches their typical template.

    One tweak you’d make to a uniform you already like

    - Remove gray stripe - Red/White collar and arm holes to match sash - Remove outline around number - Round the top of the 'A' in PORTLAND. (see below) Perfection.
  14. LeBron should have "LeBron" on the back of his jersey instead of James. He goes by his first name everywhere anyway. He's like Neymar or Ichiro.
  15. Portland, OR also has a "Jefferson Democrats" (Demos for short). My favorite though comes from central Texas: New Braunfels Unicorns

    2018 MLS Kits

    It really doesn't feel pointless in Portland, but hey, different fan bases, different times.
  17. I'm hoping for Milk Men just for the special uniforms.

    Report: Nike to Take Over MLB Uniforms in 2020

    So this pretty much confirms MLB in Portland by 2020, right?

    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.

    NBA Changes 2017-18

    Wow, Warriors in white 6/7 games.
  21. 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.

    NBA Changes 2017-18

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

    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.

    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....
