  1. In fact, didn't this exact thing happen a few years ago, where they did a similar "study" where fans favored brown and yellow, only to go navy and white anyway?
  2. I like it because I think it's just enough to be noticeable but doesn't go overboard. Looking back at the Showtime era jerseys, the drop shadow was way, way too extreme. It might have had its charm, but that was wisely left in the past. I think what the Lakers are doing now is pretty good, a nice little effect without being overly distracting. (Oddly enough, the drop shadow style they're using is really simple to do. In something like Illustrator, just copy the number, put it on a lower layer, then drop it down like 30-35 tics or so).

    Completely agree. Still looks completely modern and unique to this day. Very much would have been one of the "untouchable" looks in baseball if only the Reds kept it around.

    MLB changes 2018?

    Also go back to the zipper uniforms...

    MLB changes 2018?

    I really like the 3930 Padres cap. Just shows how badly they should be wearing brown and yellow right now.

    New Carl's Jr./ Hardee's Logos

    California has always been Carl's Jr. Lived here all my life and never seen Hardee's. Except I distinctly recall ads for Carl's Jr. using the Hardee's name, and wondering why I never could find a Hardee's.

    NFL 2018 changes

    For a moment there, I thought Nike was bringing its NBA terminology to the NFL. Game uniforms, League uniforms, Legend uniforms, Limited uniforms.

    I like the compromise the Giants and Red Sox have, where they only have NOB road uniforms. I wouldn't mind more teams doing this, as long as the home uniform number is larger to compromise.
  9. Parity in the NBA has also always bugged me... Haven't something like half the teams in the league not even won a championship? But I think so much of it has to do with the nature of the sport. Basketball is perhaps the one sport where the individual can have the largest influence on the on-field events. The NBA has always been defined by superstars, and there are only so many and so many teams they play on.

    New Honey Comb Branding

    I wonder if this is another "New Coke" conspiracy where the whole point was to eventually revert back as a stealth way to increase brand awareness and get some free advertising.
  11. I'm still wondering about this. Maybe it was something posted in error.
  12. Looking at the "old" purple jersey in that pic, I realized that white doesn't really contrast well on white at all. The wordmark probably would have been better if it was just gold on purple. The numbers should have just been gold, too. A gold outline doesn't contrast well against white at all.

    Memphis Grizzlies Unveil New Logos and Uniforms

    I agree. The more I see it, the more I like it. It seems more natural. I usually refer to a player as “#23, James” or whoever and this reflects that.
  14. I think a lot of this comes down to that it's the Lakers. Nike was likely much more restrained than usual. Teams like the Lakers, Celtics, Bulls have probably achieved a certain level of "untouchability" that even Nike won't cross. I dunno. Maybe Nike will go crazier next year and this is just a stopgap or something.
  15. How dare anyone possibly have an opinion different from yours.
