    Come on, Bolts. It's not that hard. Either embrace the best uniform you've ever had... ... or the goofiest one.

    MLB 150th Anniversary Patch for 2019 Spotted

    It's not great, but it could have been a lot worse. I also admire that they didn't make it comically large like the 125th Anniversary patch in 1994. The mothership does ask an interesting question: Will it change colors for different teams? I could go either way on it. I do like seeing the batterman logo in team colors, but at the same time, there's something to be said for MLB standing strong on their branding across the board.

    Agreed. For one, "jet black" is a thing. Second, there's usually black lettering on military jets. If they're leaning into the more military-based imagery (which Nike most certainly will), it makes sense, even more than green, in my opinion, but obviously they're not getting rid of green (nor should they).

    I loved my black John Lynch Buccaneers jersey. I always used those in Madden.

    2019 MLB Changes

    Team ownership has gone on record (and reiterated since yesterday) that they are not considering relocation. I know everyone gets off on the idea of moving the Rays and Athletics, but let's let the teams and cities deal with that issue and allow fans to keep their teams.

    I have the same issue with my New Era Tampa Bay Lightning cap. I tried wearing it with my new Lightning shirt, and it looked like two completely different colors. I've got a Zephyr brand Lightning cap as well, and it matches the jersey color way more closely than NE does.
  8. Coming from a lifelong Bucs fan who started in the last couple sessions of the Creamsicle era, yes, I liked the 1997 rebrand, but I think those uniforms were starting to show their age. Sticking with a dark red and darker pewter, along with black trim, made for an overly-dark uniform, and there wasn't a need for double outlines on the numbers.
  9. Red, orange, and a touch of either black or pewter (not both) is all the team needs. You don't have to choose between the dainty Bucco Bruce or the unnecessarily aggressive current skull. There's a happy medium that isn't too soft or edgy.

    Los Angeles NFL Brands Discussion

    I was going to make the same point. "We've always done it that way" doesn't make a lot of sense when there are valid alternatives to make it look better.
  11. Thank you. Just because the "Greek" or "tribal" logos from the 1970s were unique doesn't mean they were good. There have been plenty of uniform designs over the decades that were unique but aesthetically bad, and they should stay in the past.

    Is this a road alt, or are they going to force a powder blue uniform with the city name on the home fans?
  13. Do they need a white outline? No, they don't. Would they look better with one? Yes, they would.
  14. This might be the first time I've seen that patch/logo straight and not at an angle. The neck on that guitar is way too short.

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    That video was full of closeups and quick cuts. There's only one real shot of the full jersey (the one in the thumbnail of the video), and it only lingers on that shot for half a second. You never really get a full sense of the overall product, just bits and pieces that they know will pop, especially when only shown briefly.
