  1. Uniform/jersey misunderstandings

    I'd gone over to my local community college to see about enrolling and take an assessment test (I wound up not following through due to still owing UWW money, iirc), and had worn a green and white Packers cap. Instead of the G, this one has the old Heisman on one of the front panels, and the NFC logo on the other. Naturally, the lady who gave me the test complimented my Notre Dame cap
  2. Universal Maxims of Uniform Design

    Just when we finally figured out what a catch is...now we don't know what a stripe is anymore What I do know is no MLB team that wears a chest logo at home does the same on the road, if you don't count the Cubs' blues.
  3. Unpopular Opinions

    as far as the Dolphins, I was more partial to the 97 version...same look, much less blob-like.
  4. Universal Maxims of Uniform Design

    I'd say teams with a metallic gold or silver helmet should generally opt for same color pants in football...but then there were two exceptions to that: UAB during the Roddy White era (at least at home) and the Tampa Bay Storm, both of whom inexplicably looked better in white pants than gold.
  5. MLB changes 2018?

    And that's why I only said MLB. On that note, the color combo is pretty popular in English soccer, though they call it claret instead of maroon. https://goo.gl/images/5BiqEo https://goo.gl/images/YpejHp https://goo.gl/images/oi99ng
  6. MLB changes 2018?

    Well, it'd be tough for any non-Phillies MLB team to adopt maroon and light blue w/o being constantly compared to that set. Even if you went with a predominantly blue look, did everything possible to avoid any resemblance, there would still be whispers of the 'P' word.
  7. A rant about the Seattle SuperSonics

    As Dave Berri would put it, it's the short supply of really tall people at work. I mean, if relatives need somebody to reach up for something off a high shelf, it's like they look at me and see Shaq. I'm 5'9" and not even the tallest person in the family, for reference (two cousins are 6-footers who briefly played college football, one for Iowa State, the other for Air Force). That, IMO, is a stumbling block basketball just simply has and can't do much about.
  8. I've had this thought, and here's as good a place as any to voice it...I'm wondering whether the Raiders have ever considered ditching the idea of using a location name at all, and simply being the Raiders. No Oakland, no LA, no Las Vegas, just the Raiders.
  9. Outlandish yet restrained designs

    This remains my favorite Predators uniform...it was actually pretty plain, with the overtly outlandish part being the claw marks on the numbers. Then you had the original Kats, though in their case, it was the pants where they got creative: the pants stripes were guitar necks. I was never big on the 2nd Kats' uniforms, always thought they wore a garbage design that was both vastly inferior to the original Kats and a low rent version of the Titans.
  10. Alternate SPORTS! History Thread

    A thought that just struck me: when the NBA and ABA merged, the Bulls basically forced it to include the Pacers instead of the Kentucky Colonels so they could get Artis Gilmore. 5+ years later, the Colts move to Indy. The question I ask is...if the Colonels had survived the merger instead of the Pacers, are we talking about the Kentucky Colts today? Mainly just a random question.
  11. NBA 90s series(Milwuakee Bucks Posted)

    Eh...we never had a purple alt. I figure one thing...if it had been purple instead of green, Bucks fans would have a much lower opinion on the big deer uniform.
  12. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    People are weird. That's mainly why.
  13. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    As someone who liked the old set, this new set swung and whiffed. They succeeded in not looking like the Texans...but largely overthought the whole sword theme. This would probably have looked better on the Scottish Claymores.
  14. Lifespan of new-age arenas

    Sat behind the bench at a high school basketball game once...and hightailed it to the student section within 10 minutes. Guess being up close to the players is more fun if you don't know most of them😃. That and the view stunk.
  15. National Team Names

    De Reggae Boyz, Mon or how about the Super Eagles? Indomitable Lions, anyone? (In order, Jamaica, Nigeria and Cameroon)
  16. Teams Due for a Rebrand

    Rockies...keep the mountains, ditch the black, get a new script.
  17. MLB Launches Hashtag Emojis for All 30 Teams

    #BeBold Phanatic....someone definitely watched those Stallone and Canelo commercials one time too many.
  18. Championship matchups you wish we got?

    Super Bowl XXVII. Oilers vs Cowboys. A damn shame Warren Moon never reached the Super Bowl.
  19. Because I suddenly have no idea how to alter my sig anymore :rolleyes: I opened a store, you can buy some stuff.


  20. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    What, no love for the Tulsa Drillers?
  21. The Return of Black for Black's Sake (UPDATE: Indians)

    Good that you clarified...round our way, the Sox are White
  22. A few NFL concepts (Niners, Jets)

    Been a while since the last concept I posted...and it seems like forever since I posted an NFL concept that wasn't College to Pro. That said, here we go with the Niners Not much of a departure here...the home's stripes are gold, and gold trim has been added to the lettering on both jerseys, not to mention the now-red facemask. The grid plaid is a Sourdough Sam shoutout, which I figured would look best with white pants. Now here go the Jets. Went back to kelly green as the main color, with forest green as trim only. Also modified the oval into a football shape like they had it in the 60s...and then introduced a secondary jet, which I incorporated into the helmet, shoulder and pants stripes. Lastly, a piecemeal fauxback using the jet as the helmet logo, and a jersey modeled after the Staten Island Stapletons...the body from their final season in the NFL and the sleeves from their first three seasons. Speak now or fade into Bolivian
  23. Dayton Dynamo rebrand

    So the name was resurrected, eh? I remember them being in the same league as the Wave back in the day. I think you should consider looking at small airplanes...it is then that you will figure out what the typeface should look like. Obviously, you know this here is the Mr. Right Now font, and there is a Mr. Right out there.
  24. MLB City Edition Series by Pinch Designer (Yankees 30/30)

    Holy crap....never thought I'd see the day somebody made a much more out-there version of one of my concepts usually it's the other way around.
  25. That actually happens?
