  1. While a horrible orgy of piping and side panels, I thought the 2006-2012 Vikings uniform did the best job of matching the color of the helmet and jersey. Not a 100% match, but better so than current or past uniforms.

    Montreal Alouettes teasing re-brand

    I am underwhelmed, to say the least

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    It is hard to fathom now, but the speed, excitement, and glamor of the "jet age" was a real thing--people can travel around the country or the world flying higher, faster, farther than ever before.

    Rocket City Trash Pandas unveil logos

    We at Rocket City want a trash panda with attitude. He's edgy, he's "in your face." You've heard the expression "let's get busy"? Well, this is a trash panda who gets "biz-zay!" Consistently and thoroughly.

    Rocket City Trash Pandas unveil logos

    I find the coloring very odd--it is a gray raccoon (the same color as the trash can), but the raccoon's ear is red....and the tail is somehow white/blue.

    You had to pick the video in which Paul Stanley is wearing feathered pants and a captain hat? You could have at least used a better song, like "Tears Are Falling." To be fair, this is what bands were wearing in 1985--although KISS probably wore it worse than most.

    The Sports Media Thread

    I thought part of the issue is that NBC doesn't get "credit" for the ratings in Canadian TV markets when they sell to advertisers. Even if 100% of Toronto televisions are tuned into Wings/Leafs, NBC can only charge advertisers based on the stateside audience.
  8. I think the blue pants work so much better when the socks are mostly white (#21) than the more traditional blue/white (#65).

    Grey Facemasks For Everyone*

    Grey looks old-timey. The Niners, Colts, Giants, etc. are trying to capture a specific look. When 1995 becomes "retro," the Colts can break these out:

    Grey Facemasks For Everyone*

    There seems to be a lot of love for the Patriots to go back to a gray facemask. I think the red facemask provides some much needed color. With no helmet stripe, from certain angles the '93 helmet was too plain.

    Football and CTE

    Band? Ha! What a loser. Wind ensemble was where all the cool kids were at.

    Biggest Downgrades in History

    I was not referring to residents taking on the personality of the team--I am talking strictly looks. A bunch of people wearing Blackhawks gear looks very "Chicago" even though nothing about the Blackhawks identity/look is indicative of Chicago. So, in a sense, the city reflects the look of the team instead of the other way around. John Candy's character in the movie "Summer Rental" is from Chicago. A quick and easy way to get that across is to put him in a Blackhawks jersey.

    and if you took the shoulder patch off that Kane jersey, it could literally be used by any team called the Blackhawks. Nothing about their identity has a local flavor, but hundreds of thousands of people in the Chicago area embrace it. The team doesn't reflect the community, the community reflects the team. I understand that Chicago has a 70 year head start on Glendale when it comes to hockey, but I think the lack of a rabid Arizona fan base has more to do with the crappy on-ice product than a Cachina doll missing from the sweater.

    I always thought the lines on that "open star" logo were too thin. It was like some high school kid's weak moustache.
