  1. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Jim Zorn with the Cowboys and the Packers.
  2. MLB 2016 Changes

    Are there safety concerns with zippers? It seems like I read that somewhere once upon a time. Like how Kevin Plawecki ended up with an imprint of his necklace courtesy of Noah Syndergaard.
  3. Football sleeve stripes that go all the way around

    Byron Maxwell wears loose sleeves.
  4. New Browns uni coming 2015

    I'm sure this uniform was posted somewhere in the depths of this thread, but just as a reminder, brown jerseys with orange numbers and a white "upshadow" do have a short-lived historical precedent. Of course, one should also consider that the team did not stick with this particular design.
  5. 1982 NFL merchandise

    I had four of those helmets. (Dolphins, Packers, Falcons, Chiefs) They met NOCSAE standards at the time for under-12, as the ad states. The interior padding was held in with adhesive. The decals were rather cheap, however.
  6. College Football Uniforms - 2015 Season

    As you say, it appears that Louisville has essentially eliminated black (a school color) in favor of gray. What does that say about the future of GFGS vs. BFBS?
  7. 2014-2015 College Basketball

    Not to mention both teams have a red stripe of approximately the same size on each side, plus red numbers and white names on back. It's rather difficult to follow.
  8. Retro college Football unis

    where are #1 stripes?Tear away jersey. The 1970s version of today's hard-to-grab material.
  9. Helmet Finish Related to Safety?

    I would be interested to know if matte helmets have any impact on the frequency of neck injuries. Teams stopped using helmets with soft external padding because they believed the friction created by the soft padding meant more "grabbing" on impact and less "sliding." I don't know if this was ever proven and I certainly don't know if the differences in helmet finishes would be significant enough to cause a similar effect.
  10. Hilarious Facemask

    Steve Young had pretty good mobility with that mask. Just ask the Vikings.
  11. NBA Changes 2013-14 Season

    Heat-pressed means no stitching to rub against the players' skin, which was one of adidas' goals. Uni Watch story on rev 30 jerseys
  12. Have the Cowboys ever worn dark jerseys at home?

    Of course they lost Super Bowl V (pictured above, a game in which they were designated the home team), as a further example. But they did blitz a good Rams team 28-0 in the 1978 NFC Championship game wearing blue, so they weren't always bad luck.
  13. Riddell no longer the Official Helmet of the NFL

    If the NFL doesn't allow manufacturers' names on the bumpers, the makers will have more incentive to design helmets and facemasks that are "distinctive" in appearance.
  14. Bucs Cannot Wear Throwback Due to Safety Issue

    Should the league restrict how much teams can use hurry-up offenses during the game? More plays mean more hits. Would a rule that required teams to wait 30 seconds after the end of a play before snapping the next play help minimize the cumulative effects of smaller collisions that some researchers believe are the biggest problem? Such a rule could still allow no-huddle offenses during the last two minutes of the first half and in the fourth quarter, for instance.
  15. Bucs Cannot Wear Throwback Due to Safety Issue

    I was just reading Under Armour's explanations of their new fabric in the college football thread. They claim their non-stretch, rip-stop fabric makes it impossible to get hold of a player's jersey. But does this make players safer? Yes, I know holding is generally against the rules but we all know it happens on every play. Receivers will like it and linemen will too, as long as it's the other guy trying to grab them. But it seems like allowing players to move at top speed at all times makes for bigger and more frequent hits.
