  1. NASCAR 2018

    There's been a trend in paint schemes (especially Sam Bass-related schemes like the 24) where they tend to be designed as art first and functional liveries second. While it's neat to see what someone can do with colors or a certain design element (such as the 2017 scheme for Jimmie Johnson, which has stripes at 48 degree angles), a paint scheme should highlight the sponsor's logos and colors, make the number legible, and differentiate it from other cars on the track. Making wild designs doesn't accomplish that.
  2. NASCAR 2018

    The #24 was designed by long-time NASCAR artist Sam Bass, while the other three were designed by Brendan Droppo, who is a really talented artist... but I can't say I love these. The 9 and 88 look alright, and in some studio shots that Hendrick Motorsports posted earlier today, the 9 looks better than it did last night. I'm not in love with the black numbers on the 88 either. And then there's the 48. I'm sure it's got to do with Lowe's wanting to emphasize their Pro sales, but there has to be a better way to do that. Use black and grey, sure, but that scheme, if you want to call it that, is hot garbage. It looks like one of the futuristic villain cars from Cars 3.

    I wasn't aware that the home crowd could choose uniforms. If that's the case, where should I submit my recommendations to the Bucs?
  4. MLB changes 2018?

    Other than the logo, about which I'm upset but not livid, I don't see anything drastic happening. If you look at the team UA dresses in college, none of them look all that outlandish, at least from my brief Google search. South Carolina, Boston College, even Maryland don't look too dissimilar from most baseball looks, even if some of their more out-there designs look like MLB BP jerseys from the late 2000s.

    Only if they actually wear vests like they did in Clemente's day, not sleeveless jerseys, which reek of the early-2000s.
  6. MLB changes 2018?

    Agreed. Switching back to kelly green and keeping the bright yellow they have now would run into the same problems that the Rays road fauxback/Players' Weekend stuff has: By themselves, both colors are great, and paired with a darker color, they pop perfectly, but paired together, they'll both be way too bright.

    I have absolutely no inside knowledge, but if a new material is happening, I'd place my bets on the cotton-like material they used for the Mother's Day/Father's Day/Independence Day caps. I have a Father's Day Rays cap, and it's noticeably cooler and more comfortable than my Diamond Era BP/ASG caps.

    Really? Nobody? Ugh, fine, I'll do it. "Chad Cincuenta"

  10. Sports-themed NASCAR paint schemes

    Smokin' Dick Trickle. I love that scheme.

    No offense, because you've done a pretty good job recreating these schemes, but they're just that: recreations. All four of these paint schemes are the designs used by Joe Gibbs Racing or Furniture Row Racing.
  12. NFL 2017 changes?

    Fox listened to NASCAR fans about Digger the Gopher after four years. I don't know how they haven't had someone pull the plug on the robot yet.

    Athletic gold would look great with some teams' uniforms (A's, Rays, and Pirates especially, but probably some more), but would look terrible with others. It'll look like everyone's wearing Livestrong bracelets.
  14. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    Wait, the Suns almost used that weird 90s "S" thing in their logo? Why is this not bigger news?
  15. High School Football Uniforms 2017

    My alma mater of Northside Christian in St. Petersburg, FL That's Griffin Alstott, son of Northside head coach and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Mike Alstott, at quarterback. The uniforms are far cry from the days when I went there. Our teams had one blue home jersey, one white away jersey, one blue helmet and one white pair of pants.
