  1. The Big Ol' Counterfeit Jersey Thread

    To be fair, the new Nike uniforms look to be much better quality. The old legit replicas/authentics were very cheap looking; very shiny/dazzly, big and loose. Nike replicas looks significantly different; more structured, so i'm sure there was a learning curve for counterfeiters when they came into the nfl picture. So i don't think you were necessarily wrong, i think fakes used to look more like the legit replicas.

    I normally don't mind the compression pants/colored socks, etc...but with this uniform, white socks and black shoes should be mandatory. I wish they would go through that extra effort for throwbacks, kinda like the lakers did the short shorts...for a half...a few years ago.

    I'm a big fan of that logo. If i was a kings fan i would love a cap or jacket of it.

    But to be fair, Nike has this kind of loyalty bc they have outstanding marketing. You have to give credit to them for that, whether or not you like them. Their fans didn't just fall from the sky, them and their allegiances were built over the course of decades. Nike wasn't always an iconic brand, they built that over time.
  5. NHL in Houston

    Houston is one of the most diverse cities in the world, it's the 4th largest city in the US, with large number of transplants, and it has plenty of million dollar corporations, which would be the target demo for season tickets. That's why it would make a ton of sense to have a team in Houston, plus it has a new, existing arena in place.
  6. NBA Football

    Dude, these are great. I've been wanting to do a crossover series for a while and this is essentially what i woulda liked to do. You didn't get to fancy, you just translated basketball uniforms to a football template. Very cool. I feel like people tend to miscolor the helmets when they attempt these, in a way which distracts and comes off...off brand, but you did the helmets justice.

    It's not the uniforms, but more of the off the field perks. Offering a pair of Jordans to a kid will make a difference, and not just one, but multiple pairs, possibly exclusive releases.
  8. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    It's nearly impossible to imagine with what adidas is capable of...but if they could somehow recreate the early 2000s set, i'd be all for it. But realistically it'll be "diamonds and ice" Or some kind of black alternate. Hope i'm wrong.
  9. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Anybody else love the helmets and cleats but find the rest of the uniform pointless? The uniform just looks generic with a retro logo slapped on there.
  10. NFL 2017 changes?

    Yeah it could just be very coincidental. Although i've seen images of him wearing them normal, and him wearing them rolled down with what looks to be white tights from the ankle up.
  11. NFL 2017 changes?

    I'm pretty sure they photoshopped the stripes onto his socks, using walter payton's socks. Very cool tho, either way.
  12. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I hated the uniforms this past week, the definition of BFBS...but i welcome the black socks/cleats, mixes the aesthetic of some historic teams, so that's cool to see.
  13. I miss "Authentic jerseys"

    IIRC the Rev 30s were available but the numbers were not the same. They had sublimated mesh on them to make them better suited for autographs. I saw some jerseys in person this weekend, and they are indeed very very light and thin. FWIW i fall in the middle of "love the look and feel of old school jerseys" and "appreciate the new technology" I know a lot of people think the terrible fake jerseys are "authentic" and "legit" bc they have tackle twill numbers...despite looking really bad.
  14. MLB Changes 2017

    They didn't necessarily swap those hats, but rather, they introduced the one with the navy bill to pair with their navy uniforms. They stopped wearing the all orange cap (with orange uniform accents) bc players just didn't like the look, which is a shame bc that was a great look (minus the batting helmets).
