  1. Atlanta Hawks Nike Jerseys

    Not sure if it has been mentioned here, but the BIGGEST issue with the Hawks' Adidas uniforms was that there were two different "volt" materials used on the jerseys. Through T.V. lenses, the black jerseys were an eyesore because the stitched names on the back of the jerseys pretty much glowed bright green, while the material on the numerals and trim was more of a flatter, volt color. The material in person looked the same color, but there was something about TV that distorted the two. Because of the nature of photography it's impossible to find a photo example, but boy did it drive me crazy last year. Hopefully that will be fixed with these new materials.
  2. NFL 2017 changes?

    This might be a weird thought, but now that those jerseys have been in a Super Bowl I don't think they need to change them.
  3. EnSleeving the NBA

    My thoughts on all of this so far: Hell yeah.
  4. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I'm really angry at NBA branding right now
  5. Oakland Raiders concept stadium renderings

    Hell yeah
  6. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    [insert Jamal Crawford in black-red-volt Hawks jersey if it happens]
  7. What Are You Listening To?

    WALK THE MOON has one of my favorite sounds and has for a few years, but I just now discovered some stuff from their earlier EPs. They just have a super fun, jammin', electric pop sound that I don't think I'll ever get sick of.
  8. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Whispers: LSU looks so much better
  9. High School Redesign: The Gators

    Well done across the board.
  10. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I've never liked the Mavs' current branding. I think that primary logo has too many pieces in it. It's very convoluted. I know it's a horse, but it doesn't look like one from a far.
  11. Packers unveil "Titletown District" logo

    I like it...
  12. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    A lot of people on these boards should be working with Nike's creative teams... and a lot of people working with Nike's creative teams should be fired. Edit -- the same goes to Adidas.

    More teams should go with the broad helmet stripes like that. Ohio State and Oregon State's looked great. I'm a big fan.
  14. Best decade of sports uniforms? (redux)

    I'll throw a little more reasoning in for mine -- the 2000s. Pro sports has always been pretty consistent, but college football has always been in the spotlight. This is not because it was the decade I grew up in (born in 90), but b/c we were entering the alternate uniform era but before teams started with all of the cookie-cutter, overnight ordering of grey jerseys and deciding to change in and out decals, facemasks, etc on a regular basis. It was also before Adidas looked like it was making uniforms with third-rate material. The 2000s were a time when not every team had alternate uniforms, but the ones that did usually put some thought into them. Modern uniforms these days are hogwash. Modern uniforms in the early 2000s are modern classics to me. And -- I will get killed for this -- but stripes were the name of the game for decades. Piping was a big aesthetic change and looked great when done right. We were at a moment in time when you could have a modern uniform AND an identity.
