  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    What's even more baffling with Nike's "Yellow-gate" is that Utah's and possibly Indiana's statement jerseys appear to be a darker/more saturated shade of yellow. Comparing the three, there seems to be a distinct difference in shade between the three:

    Move the Coyotes to Houston. Couldn't be any worse than Arizona. A Houston-based team wearing Light Blue and Red? I approve heartily!
  5. Rice Krispies new logo/packaging.

    Pretty much. Those elves look a little...stiff? Wooden? Lifeless? Soulless? The old elves had character, but these new guys...not so much.

  10. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    It's time to play "Foul or No Foul?", starring Dion Waiters: Gobert's the second Jazz player to miss significant time due to a questionable play. Dante Exum is out indefinitely (probably for the season) due to Phoenix's TJ Warren landing on him in the preseason. Might want to keep an eye on him, NBA, and you might want all players and staff to carry a rabbit's foot or two, Utah.

    This Roy Halladay news is incredibly heartbreaking.

    To be fair, Conrad did say that the exact colors on the Jazztros jerseys were not confirmed--side panels and armhole trim included. I doubt that it's purple, but there's a small chance that it's different from the mockup.
  15. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Either change the helmets to all black or teal flake (with the logo decal having a black keyline/fill-in for other black areas), or possibly gold flake if alternate helmets come back. Or black regular helmet and teal flake alternate. Maybe a gold helmet would make a good alternate helmet as well.

  17. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    Either cream or a lighter gray would fit in nicely with the Browns' color scheme.
  18. NBA Changes 2017-18

    My thoughts exactly. Anyone who's been to St. George or any other place in Southern Utah where vegetation is prevalent during the warmer months when the leaves are green,* can tell you that the color green is abundant there and provides a beautiful contrast to the deep red-orange rocks of the region: Though the colors are about right, save for a bit too much yellow and not enough orange, and should any professional team (definitely minor league or lower) take up home in the region (St. George is the obvious choice here), shades of reds and oranges should almost be a requirement: I couldn't mention Southern Utah without throwing in a shoutout to my hometown Kanab (the 3rd one down, though I didn't take it)!! In fact, I've had the idea to use something like the Astros' rainbow gut uniforms on a couple sport uniform concepts for a fictional St. George-based team or two...if I can find the time for it. *Though, if you don't like getting scorched, try to avoid St. George in June, where summer is at its hottest and before the mid- to late-summer monsoons some in to cool things down.
  19. 2017 NFL Season

    Great comeback by Carolina after starting down 0-10. All that said, I still can't figure out this Panthers team.
  20. NBA Changes 2017-18

    As one who grew up in Southern Utah, I love the idea that Jazz brass is reaching out to the far-flung fans with these Utah Jazztros jerseys. I also love the idea of the Astros-style gradient being used in other sports (with proper restraint, of course). Even if the general public finds them hideous, they'll at least be memorable. That said, they should've looked to last year's Pride jerseys and kept the Red Rock Desert motif to a stripe on the jersey (with either a green or blue jersey color base), at least in my opinion. The "UTAH" script and numbers needs to be whatever color is contrasting the yellow and Red-Orange (I think the navy blue would add some pop better than black if that's the side colors), and I'd like to see the orange be on the jersey and not just the shorts. Of course, a better way to reach out to Jazz fans in Southern Utah is to either put the D-, er, G-League Stars down south (probably in St. George) or have said D-, um, G-League team (or themselves) play a preseason game down south. But we'll have to see how these turn out in real life.

  22. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    I have to disagree, and the kicker here is that I'm a big fan of the Ravens' and Titans' brands all in all, and am OK with "The Cleveland Deal" right up to saying that the Cleveland Browns v2.0 is the same franchise and organization as Cleveland Browns v1.0. The Ravens have ironically been more stoic with their look than Cleveland Browns v2.0 and, while the Titans' uniforms have a couple flaws (most notably the Flaming Thumbtack, helmet stripe, and number font), they have a great, memorable color scheme and uniform (in my opinion, of course), though I'd prefer that they emphasize Luv Ya Blue over Navy. If rumors are true that alternate helmets may be on their way back, having one helmet be White and the other Columbia Blue would be the best option. That said, the Oilers had a great and unique color scheme and uniforms and the Browns (both v1.0 and v2.0) have had good looks up until their 2015 redesign. Had the Oilers name/identity stayed around, they would've made a few tweaks (for better or worse) and possibly fixed any minor defects in their look. But diff'rent stroke and such. Of course, having the Titans with their current uniforms and the old 1960s Oilers font (or something like unto it) like @Jezus_Ghoti mentioned above would look fantastic.
  23. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    I've actually thought of this idea, and it doesn't really seem too bad an idea. Ideally, Color Rushâ„¢ should be showcasing obscure/historical colors in the form of throwbacks, fauxbacks, and non-shoehorned-solid-colored pajamas, so simply I'm thinking of the pre-2015 Browns brown uniform with white replaced by gray/silver, helmet stripe included. The gray facemask would fit right in with that. Or, you could even get the 1950s drop- or up-shadow look as well.
  24. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    I would accept this under only one condition: As I've stated before, if we can have the Los Angeles Lakers, Indianapolis Colts, Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Dodgers, and so forth, we should've had have the Baltimore Browns. I also would've been perfectly fine with the Tennessee Oilers as well. Get off my lawn.
