    I love that font. It would instantly be a better number font than what they've been using. I sure hope so.
  3. The Big Ol' Counterfeit Jersey Thread

    The majority of Vegas Golden Knights jerseys on eBay are fake, but the one posted below looks pretty close to a proper replica. The screened-on tag and the numbers are what makes me wonder the most, though. https://m.ebay.com/itm/las-vegas-golden-knights-jersey/192449258326?hash=item2ccedea356:g:-uQAAOSwSKtaejjy
  4. NFL 2018 changes

    I'm not a fan of the 49ers in all red (should be gold or white IMO), but it's light years ahead of the 49ers in all black (well, from the neck down, anyways). I'm intrigued by this pants option in any case.
  5. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    So the Jazz get the man they were looking for last summer in Jae Crowder. While I am cautious about his production this season, I am also optimistic that being in a different system will provide him an opportunity to return to form. I'm also curious as to what number he wears. He's worn 99 in Boston and Cleveland, but I can't think of any Jazz player who's worn a number higher than 55. Something's gotta give there. I also hope that Joe Johnson finds himself on a contender to make one last push or two at a championship as well. As a Jazz fan, Iso Joe's buzzer beater against the Clippers in Game 1 of the first round last year will be one of my favorite moments in Jazz history.

    While the Thunder's logo and "OKC" wordmark need to go, I've always liked their home and road uniforms, minus not having "City" under the number on their road jersey. Their current Statement and their old Red-Orange alternate would make a nice set to their regular home and road (or, if we're using Nike-speak, "Association" and "Icon" jerseys). While their white sleeved jerseys and current City uniforms are both terrible as a whole, those jerseys at lease have a couple good elements to them: the sound waves on the pants and Dark Gray as a team color (which IMO would still look better with Light Blue and Red-Orange better than Navy Blue). If they could find a way to incorporate all those elements and the Statement patterm into a coherent set, they could look great.

    Which, to be fair, shows a lot more restraint. Yes, that means that Midnight Green is probably staying for the foreseeable future, but credit where credit is due.

    This time, however, I'm glad to be called a dummy. A team won their first Super Bowl by beating the Patriots.

    Yet they can easily go back to (what's ultimately a variation) of their original color scheme just like that. It'd be cool to see them go with a darker, slightly redder purple (Plum?) in place of the navy blue and a lighter shade of green. I feel that this plum color would look excellent with their current shade of gold while standing out from a certain purple-and-gold team in Los Angeles. Also, there are a number of directions the Jazz could've gone had they stick with it. IMO the Jazz were one of the few teams that could've stuck with and pulled off the mid-late 2000s double-blue had they paired it with the note logo. Of course, it would be more appropriate for them to use Purple/Light Blue in that case. They could've also transitioned to a set based off their Black/Purple/Copper look, too. I might have to make some mock-ups at some point to better illustrate this.
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Yep. I like the Blazers digging at that aspect of Toronto's "We the North" slogan, but they'll lose their upper hand the moment Seattle (or, by some miracle, Vancouver) land a team again.
  13. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Agreed with you and @kimball here. These, as-is, are a bit much for a permanent set. They're fantastic jerseys that look even better than I ever thought, but my biggest concern with them is that "off-brand" aspect for a team that's had issues sticking with a consistent color scheme for more than 7 years since their first big rebrand in 1997. It'd be cool if the Jazz can find a way to more subtlety integrate the striping into their permanent set and color scheme (with side panels or even horizontal striping like the sleeved Pride jerseys of 2016-17, sans sleeves, of course; that could work wonderfully if done right (though I can't imagine a way horizontal striping across the chest on a sleeveless jersey would not look like the Nuggets' 1980s jerseys). But if the Jazz were to either go with the desert sunset look full-time or more subtlety integrate it into their current color scheme, I'd lock them into that color scheme for at least 10 years, because doing so would only cement them as the NBA's Vancouver Canucks or San Diego Padres, just as @Ice_Cap has said. Also worth noting: Now that they've worn jerseys with red on them, the Utah Jazz have worn nearly every basic color (not accounting for different shades of, say, green and blue) on the entire professional sports color spectrum at some point in their history.
  14. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I may be biased, but Utah's are the best; their biggest flaw is that those unis' color scheme doesn't really for the Jazz's current template. But that can be fixed... Also, the Knicks City jerseys are sneaky good too. Make the Jazztros jerseys their statement jersey. As in, put the STATE in "Statement."
  15. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    As a Jazz fan, a not very small part of me would kill for that.
  16. MLB changes 2018?

    I'm sure every last Mormon is looking to insensitively convert Jews posthumously. That's a broad brush that you paint with, sir. But back to mascots and the topic at hand. I agree with @FinsUp1214..."Jazz Bear" (as most people call him lol) isn't the most creative name, but he makes up for his lackadaisical name with his antics IMO. "Suns Gorilla" or "Oriole Bird" aren't exactly what I would call creative mascot names, either.
  17. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    I believe it was current GM Dennis Lindsay, but there was a rebuilding aspect to it. I see the reasoning there, but I don't entirely agree with it.
  18. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Yea. The way of the Utah Jazz fan has not been an easy one. Even at their late-1990s peak, they still had Michael Jordan and one of the worst NBA work stoppages prevent them from landing a title. Then, even when everything goes right in 2016-17, it's still not enough to keep one of your best players. So...yeah. But the Clippers' collapse is even worse. At least Utah still has Rudy Gobert around.
  19. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Yea, it's just strange that the Clippers are now without Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, but it's surprising to see how quickly this Clippers team has been dismantled. Of course, I'm not going to be entirely surprised if the Jazz end up standing pat, like they do about 8/10 times, and let Rodney "Bubble Wrap" Hood and Derrick Favors (who are on expiring contracts) walk for nothing.
  20. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    Not holding my breath on this one, but the idea of the Titans going primarily red with some silver is an intriguing one. I'd rather see them go primarily Luv Ya Blue with Red and some Navy Blue (and some Silver) trim. But I'm fully expecting them to stick with navy as their main color, and have a monochromatic navy primary home look on top of that.
  21. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Zero. But since we're on the same topic: How many do the Clippers have?

  23. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I disagree with the Bronco's current look looking dated as a whole. The number font needs some work (thinning more than anything), as does the logo, but I consider their overall current look a modern classic. That said, their Color Rush uniforms (of all things, and above the waist) is a great example of tweaking of their Orange Crush look; I like the old "D-Horse" logo and helmet striping on a navy shell a lot more than I thought I would.

    Sigh...I really wish RSL used Cobalt shorts with their Claret tops. It would really help balance out the sleeves.
