  1. 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.

    Biggest Downgrades in History

    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.

    Biggest Downgrades in History

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

    NHL 2018-19

    By that logic, this is a good uniform--so clearly those people are wrong.
  9. I always thought it was odd that people were too "holy" to cheer for the Satans, but had no issue living in a town called Devils Lake.

    NBA Changes 2017-18

    Even as a uniform nerd, I find this statement absurd.
  11. You know that this existed, right?

    Unpopular Opinions

    Unfortunately, the Jets are not forest green or kelly green. Theirs is some shade of olive drab that is not appealing.

    Favorite Goalie Masks of All Time

    I liked the simplicity of Bob Essensa's Jets mask. It was not overly detailed, so it looked good whether you were close up or far away.

    Logos And Uniforms That Are So Ugly They’re Awesome

    I hate pin stripes in basketball. I hate hokey wordmarks. I hate cartoon number fonts. Somehow, I love this uniform.

    Ranking the NFL/Nike Uniform changes

    I don't want to create my own grading scale, so I am just going to evaluate Nike's designs on one point: are they better or worse than the uniform they replaced. Better: Lions, Vikings, Dolphins. Worse: Titans, Seahawks, Browns, Jaguars, Buccaneers
