  1. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    I actually don't mind the shoulder stripe an CLEVELAND wordmarks on their own, though I'd taper the sleeve/shoulder stripe to a point instead of having the weird little corner notch and make the CLEVELAND wordmark no more than half its current size. But the pants wordmark and orange numbers (on both the brown and white jerseys) have got to go.
  2. Las Vegas 51s to Get New Name, New Everything in 2019

    I like the idea, though I think a look that uses the star from the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign or a more casino-inspired four-point star as the main logo with a neon lights at night color scheme would look awesome, if they could pull it off correctly. Not too bad, and would fit right in with Las Vegas' reputation. That, or Martians, especially if they somehow managed to become the Marlins' affiliate. It isn't a bad idea.
  3. Las Vegas 51s to Get New Name, New Everything in 2019

    Since Brandiose is involved, I see the finalists being Desert Frogs, Silver Vultures, and Buffets...because, well, Brandiose.
  4. NBA Changes 2018-19

    The whole Mardi Gras colors not having to do with Utah never made much sense to me. I know, the New Orleans Jazz colors were clearly derived from Mardi Gras, but by happenstance the Purple/Green/Gold/White color scheme ported very well to Utah, from "Purple mountains majesty" and their snow-capped peaks to Green and Gold (or Yellow), which I would associate more with summer in the mountains with the foliage and sunsets. Of course, the 1996 rebrand turned the mountain imagery up to 11, but even before that the colors, albeit much more subtly and, just like the name, was not designed with Utah in mind. First of all, welcome to the boards! I hope you enjoy talking about team uniforms, colors, and the like as the rest of us weirdos. Second, as I largely echo both your same sentiments, I feel that Navy Blue/Dark Green/Gold is a natural progression from the original Purple/Green/Gold and does slightly fit Utah better than the original color scheme. I'm not sure why, but it probably has something to do with how prevalent blue is among local high school and college teams and, well, seeing snow-capped peaks on a clear, cold winter's night just after the sun's gone down. I've kinda been fatigued with all the color schemes the Jazz have trotted out every 7-8 or so years since 1996, but I don't think there's been a bad one among them. Unless you want to count the Green Bay Packers throwbacks as part of their current color scheme, I can't think of a Big 4 team that wears some form of Blue, Green, and Yellow. Sure, I feel the current colors could be lightened up or tweaked a bit (at least as far as the green goes). I feel that navy and a kelly-ish green (like the Dallas Stars' shade) would look awesome with the shade of gold the Jazz have. Of course, I wouldn't mind a return to purple, though I'd go with either a dark purple or a Purple-y Blue. I would've also been interested in seeing how the Jazz would have looked had they went back to the Note logo while staying with the two-tone blue color scheme, or using a simplified variation of their 1996-2004 look, like Purple/Light Blue/Black/Copper--possibly with the note. As a native southern Utahn, I'm a sucker for shades of red, orange, and gold, so I also have a soft spot for the City State uniforms, despite their off-brandedness. If I ever were to be lucky and rich enough to place a (minor-league) professional sports team based out of, say, St. George, I'd be hard-pressed to not include some design elements or colors reminiscent of the Jazz's State (yes, I'm calling them that) uniforms (in fact, the idea has been swirling around in my head for some time before the uniforms were announced, but real life has prevented putting pen to paper). Anyways, I'd love it if the uniforms (or the elements, at least well-short of a full recolor) found a way to stick around even after next year, even in limited use form. Possibly take the lighter part of the gradient (gold to orange) and put it on the numbers? Or always have an alternate with the full gradient as a side panel? I think that gradient numbers or side panels--at least the lighter part of it--would look good on a navy blue or dark green jersey. I normally don't ramble on like this.
  5. City/State Color Identities

    @Section30 I'd like to see what you have in store for Salt Lake/Utah (basically Real Salt Lake and the Utah Jazz). Would you go with the old Jazz colors of Purple/Green/Yellow? What about the Jazz's current Green/Navy/Yellow or Purple/Claret (RSL's red)/Yellow? Or Blue/Purple/Yellow? Or some other combo of Jazz and Real Salt Lake colors?
  6. NBA Changes 2018-19

    I might be in the minority, but I like the gold statements. I have heard that they'll be sticking around for next year, and that the City Edition which was slated for 2018-19 will be pushed back, but I'm very glad that the Utah Jazz will once again don a purple jersey. I do prefer the green 1980s throwbacks for the classic uni, and I feel that the Jazz will wear green again, but those wanting green will have to be a little more patient.
  7. Seven NBA Teams To Wear Classic Uniforms Next Season

    I had a feeling that, when it came time for the Utah Jazz's time for their Classic Edition™ jerseys, I could narrow down the options to three or four: 1. Classic Purple Note 2. Classic Green Note (probably my favorite Jazz jersey of all time) 3. Purple Mountain 4. The white counterpart to any of the above (though 1's and 2's are virtually indistinguishable) Its been a long time coming. I'd love to see a 40th anniversary tie-in with classic purple note jerseys, though I believe that next year is only their 39th season in Utah.
  8. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    I've gotten past that point, too. I loved the football Oilers' identity, but what's been done is done. Granted, if I had any say, we'd still have the Tennessee Oilers (having the Titans remain a primarily Luv Ya Blue team is a reasonably close second), but the Titans are going on their 20th year as the Titans, who have worn primarily navy jerseys. My main concern is that their new uniforms look decent and that there's a good balance of colors (particularly that light blue).
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    And yet, if these leaks are in fact real or even close to it, their main home set will be all black. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #logic
  10. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    I've never seen a single instance where wordmarks on pants where stripes should be look better than stripes. Not once.
  11. It's a little more focused on the cold part of the world, but Europa could also go with Yeti(s) or Orcas. It's pretty obvious what direction Callisto is going (and I have no disagreements).
  12. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I'm not a fan of the solid gold helmet idea as a full-time option, but if alternate helmets in the NFL ever happen again, I'd love to see that (that, or teal flake or even gold flake).
  13. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    I love that font. It would instantly be a better number font than what they've been using. I sure hope so.
