  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    As a Pistons fan, I don’t mind Motor City, at least as you say before Adidas made them a hot mess with sleeves and removal of some of the red piping. I just don’t understand how it fits anymore as the Pistons have officially removed navy from their color scheme. I also don’t understand why their management refuses to bring back red alternates, which remain superior to the “Chrome” or Motor City variants that have come after it, especially since they now share an arena with the Red Wings and red is a huge part of their color scheme, certainly more than navy.

    I wish they’d use contrasting color tights (i.e. purple tights with the yellow jersey for the Lakers or red with blue for the Clippers). It would look so much better; not a fan of the Color Rush style.

    We can infer from this that the "Community" jerseys will be released in the Christmas/New Year's time frame.

    The arc isn't that pronounced on the real thing, thankfully. I agree that in a perfect world it would still be horizontal as it always been for the Pistons, but I'm assuming the change had to be made due to the shoulder cuts (what Nike calls the scapula seam) on the Nike template.

    Pistons court also has a Jeep logo on the sidelines in front of the bench areas now instead of team social media information. Yay for corporate advertising http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article/20170928/news/640691/jeep-signs-on-as-partner-with-detroit-pistons In cheerier Pistons news, I really like that Nike swapped the blue and red stripes on the home jersey. It wasn't something I had ever thought about, but seeing it in action, it looks a lot better than how it has historically. The color balance on the jersey is superior, the front was too red heavy in the previous incarnation.

    Sorry, they're never going away. I agree with you that Adidas' Rev 30 material was terrible - close ups made it look like something that would be bulk ordered from an Eastbay catalog by a high school athletic department. The NBA logo also looks gross at the top back of the jersey. But money talks and the ads are here to stay.

    Absolutely. Chicago's set is looking really good. I admire how they've stuck to traditionalism and aren't bringing out any off-the-wall junk. I'm a Pistons fan, and while their Icon and Association versions are good, I really hate the "Motor City" and "Chrome" crap they've cooked up in recent years. Home white, road blue, and red alternate is what I want for them and for whatever reason they refuse to bring that red alt back.

    Pistons and Cavs are the worst to me.
  9. NFL 2017 changes?

    I'm mostly stoked they've finally stopped the continuous news/score bottom line scrolls during live events. It got phased out over the last year, I believe, but previous to that it was running non-stop on all live events for several years, including on the RSNs. I found it really distracting - figuring in this day and age everyone has a smartphone or tablet with them when they're watching the game, meaning there's no need to have a score/news scroll.
  10. Pistons Logo Change

    That happened last season - the only difference here is the removal of the Palace logo (for obvious reasons) and the updating of the center court logo. Definitely looks good though.

    This. One of the beat writers also said on Twitter that the Motor City navy uniforms will also still be used, so my hope for the return of the old red alternate is apparently dashed..
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I'm hoping that's just a mockup error by whatever vendor the Pistons used to put that site together. As for the jerseys, I can't imagine Chrome is gone, considering the Pistons just officially added gray to the color scheme. On the flip side, navy was removed, so I imagine Motor City is retired, probably replaced with the old red alternate.
  13. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Yeah, for sure. I'm guessing the NBA requires secondary logo on the shorts leg.
  14. NBA Changes 2017-18

    All in all, I like it. As crappy as the DP logo is, it's still better than the previous P secondary. I like the addition of the belt logo. Just wish they could have kept the horizontal stripe on the wishbone collar or change the collar completely if it couldn't be made to work with the Nike template.

    I guess I'm in the extreme minority, but I liked it a lot better how it was.
