  1. This is why I have only liked "region" names when the team is the only one in the region representing their sport. Like, "Minnesota Twins" is perfect: the only pro baseball team in Minnesota. This is why I never liked "California Angels" or "Texas Rangers," although the latter does have some historical context.
  2. Hey, there is Silver Lake! And Toluca Lake! And Hollywood Reservoir! That's three right there, surely it must thusly be a perfect name for the city!

    Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    Not against custom fonts at all, but I swear the marketing gets more and more ridiculous. "The point matches the shape of Tennessee," really?

    Is this really that unpopular? Other than the prestige of the Showtime era, those jerseys really did have some flaws (and things that just haven't held up well). Like that "orphaned" S in the wordmark, the overly heavy drop shadows on the numbers, etc. Granted, I have never cared for the away jersey's reversed wordmark and number colors, especially since gold does not contrast well against purple at all.

    MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    I actually really like that all-blue OKC Dodgers alt. With the retro script.

    MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    The Palm Beach Cardinals seem to have a slightly different "bird on bat" wordmark.

    Are there any minor league affiliates that literally have the same name and uniforms as their major league sponsor? I know of the Mississippi Braves, are there any others?

    2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Glad Ichiro is back with the Mariners. Though it probably won't translate to much in terms of wins, it's just nice he's back with the team I always felt was his "right" team (to reference that one thread).

    MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    What bothers me here is the inconsistency of the number placement on the right two jerseys. Why is it lower on the red alternate and higher on the blue alternate? Both are using chest logos of the same size and placement, so that just seems like a poor decision. Use one style or the other, not both.

    Victoria Highlanders new logo

    I feel like the "VH" is backwards. We read left-to-right (at least in most Western cultures), so it seems to be the left leg of the "V" should be over the left leg of the "H," instead of behind it like it is. Doing it that way reads more "the Highlanders of Victoria" sort of thing.

    What bothers me about this look, though, is the drop shadow on the logo, but not on the numbers. It looks uneven. Either have a drop shadow on both, or none at all.

    2018 NFL Offseason

    Well, time really does speed up, relatively speaking. If you're one year old, every day is thus 1/365th of your life. A year later, every day is now only 1/730th of your life. And so on. So with each passing year, each day accounts for less and less total % of your life, so time really does seemingly go faster. Uh, to bring this back on topic... go Rams?

    MLB changes 2018?

    That seems really awful from an aesthetic/consistency standpoint.

    #SaveTheCrew fan kit

    Oh wow. So it's exactly what Georgia did to the Rams during their last (initial) years in LA. Well, hopefully someone in Columbus will make him an offer he can't refuse and they'll stay put.

    #SaveTheCrew fan kit

    Don't these kind of movements always happen too late? It's all about money. The owner can get the stadium/money he wants in Austin, he's going to move there. I don't know much about the Crew. Were they selling out every game? Did they have a strong local presence? I recall when the Rams left LA after the '94 season, the team had fallen so far they weren't even a part of the LA sports scene anymore. If the Crew has had that happen, that only gives the owner even more reason to move.
  16. I've found two companies that do seem to do "retro" caps pretty well: '47 Brand and American Needle. The former even uses transparent thread, which New Era doesn't seem to, so that caps with multiple colored panels have color-matched (or invisible) threading. With presumably the income New Era gets, you'd think they'd be able to have better retro caps than these. If the smaller companies can get it right, why can't New Era?

    MLB changes 2018?

    The early 00s saw a lot of teams darken their color schemes (Rams, Patriots, many others), so I figured at some point, there'd be a return to brighter colors. But other than the A's and (maybe) the Rockies, this hasn't really happened yet.

    Very simple and to the point. I like it.

    Team Color Changes

    The Kings were originally purple and gold, as they were owned by the same man who owned the Lakers. And frankly, I still wish they stuck with the color scheme. Then, circa 1988 or so, they went into "LA Raiders" mode with the black and silver. They've kept black around since, but re-introduced purple (only to drop it again), and have once again gone back to black and silver. Which is okay, I guess, but I'll always miss the purple and gold era. Especially with the Ducks wearing black, too.
  20. I keep going back and forth on the original Marlins cap. Its a matter of absolute centering vs. relative centering. I'm still not sure which one I prefer. Obviously, centering the logo itself is "correct" relative to the other cap logos, but it always looks off to me.
  21. This is why I have largely moved to the 3930. In addition to just liking the style better, the 3930 always fits me. The 5950 is a complete crap shoot. Even when I supposedly get the same size, one cap fits, one doesn't.

    Unpopular Opinions

    I think what bothers me the most about these are the numbers. I just hate that font, at least the italic. The numbers the Patriots use now are really good, and could easily be recolored for a modern variant of this uniform style. I guess I should restate my opinion, it's really not all that bad. I think I disliked the pinstripes more because it reminds me of a soccer team than me actually not liking them in terms of design. As to why the Patriots don't revive them for a throwback, no idea. Maybe because the lone Super Bowl run aside, the Patriots just weren't that great of a franchise during that era. Or maybe Kraft just really hates them.
