    2019 MLB Changes

    What I am learning here is that white text is situational. Royals powder blues with white text? Revered. Marlins grays with white text? Reviled. White Sox roads with white text? Never heard much.

    Score changes result in a logo flash. So they're not always missing from the screen.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Going away from the subway tile baselines was a downgrade. I was thinking they wanted a generic Brooklyn baseline because there's a lot of college basketball played in Barclays, and it would save on changing baselines from Brooklyn Nets to Brooklyn Hoops. Then I looked at pictures of college games on the court and it looks like a whole different floor is laid down (traditional floorboards as opposed to the zigzag Nets court).

    Old school --lower case, non-caps in branding

    Target remodels/renovations appear to be embracing this style aesthetic.

    Amazingly, all 3 new Timberwolves wore numbers in Philadelphia occupied by other players on the roster. So, new numbers for Bayless, Covington, and Saric.

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    I too miss the site. It lives on in texts between my friends. Is this what we have in mind for this thread?

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Brutal. One of these teams should have been forced to wear pinnies. Or the home team could have mustered up their white tops, even if they're just practice-grade.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    Because retro Philadelphia team uniforms are already covered here, I'll take a slightly different tack when it comes to nostalgia. The Sports Specialities Script hat. I know it pops up in contemporary applications, too, but whenever I see that, it feels a bit jarring. (Drake holding hand out disapprovingly) (Drake satisfyingly grinning, eyes closed)

    Throwbacks of Throwbacks

    Well, if Villanova ever wants to honor its third national championship team, they can do so with throwbacks that honored their first championship team. Not 100% faithful reproductions, mind you.

    At least Nike provides every team with additional looks and concepts. With adidas they only moved the needle with certain high-profile teams. Though it also meant the early-Process 76ers didn't wind up with some sleeved monstrosity. So, thanks?

    When I read the article, it seemed that Nike was thinking of basing a uniform on the colors of Rocky’s trunks in Rocky II, which are much more in line withthe Steelers.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    Another Nike frustration contention point: NFL teams could keep their current uniform construction and Nike would just sew their makers' mark on at the end. Why wasn't this an option for the NBA? Perhaps not every team wanted non-centered shorts notches and abruptly-ending armhole trim. I was going to say it was because they took over for adidas who outfitted every team, but wasn't that the same with NFL and Reebok? Or is it that the NBA didn't have a Ripon equivalent making uniforms which adidas then put its logo on post hoc?

    The Sixer one would be better if not GFGS, but I dig the minimalist vibe. I do hope that the Pelican one has an alternate court associated with it. Or that they wear it in Utah ?

    In this post, mixed among previously confirmed leaks, are Sixer and Pelican leaks previously unseen. Like 'em both!
