  1. MLB changes 2018?

    Here is a Reddit thread with people discussing the gray road set from two days ago. Two separate people are claiming to have been told the grays are going away. I just browsed MLB Shop and the gray inventory is definitely less readily available than the other sets. I have a hard time believing it, but take it for what it’s worth. I will be pissed if this is the case. The gray is highly underrated and a classic. Especially with the traditional cap. I don’t mind the all blue cap but would prefer it every now and then. The red brim should be worn most of the time.

    They’re wearing the road grays as I type this, so consider me extremely doubtful. They still know to respect tradition. In fact, I saw from one of the beat writers the other day saying that they’ve designated their cream throwbacks for Sundays only instead of wearing them the full weekend. Doesn’t sounds like a club about to nix gray completely.
  3. I just noticed for the first time that the left upper portion of the T is much longer than the right upper portion. I understand it has to accommodate the G, but oh my goodness is that hard to ignore now. It should mirror the left side and be equal on both sides. Yikes. That thing needed more than a retouch. The bottom of the G also looks terrible like AH noted. Wow.
  4. 2018/19 Soccer Kits

    I’ve always thought Stuttgart have had extremely classy kits and these are no different.
  5. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Georgia Tech had their spring game and the field had a new yard marking font. I suspect it will match their new uniforms. I wouldn’t see any other reason for them to introduce a very specific font just for the field. Sorry, these are the best pics I can find. Edit- I should specify, I’m talking about just the number font. We already had the streamlined logo and new word mark unveiled earlier.

    I would expect OU to simply update their word mark and number font but otherwise keep the status quo. Perhaps introduce new alts to replace the Bring the Wood set. Florida will probably be a simple Jumpman logo swap. They already have well established custom word marks and number fonts from a previous Nike refresh.
  7. I think this is the best they’ve looked in the last two decades. It’s true that orange was minimized on the last set, but the late 90s and 2000s set also suffered from a similar issue with navy blue intruding too much. I’m honestly surprised in this merchandising driven era that they stripped away that extra color. They truly feel like the classic Dolphins again. We got more than we bargained for. I think most assumed either the aqua or orange shade would be tweaked and that would be it. I think everyone hoped, but highly doubted that the dark blue would be removed. I wish they would bring back the orange alternate. Not like the Color Rush they had. With that highlighter bright orange, it was hideous and the orange pants were a step too far. This wasn’t the Dolphins. Though the new orange would probably look awesome and much more traditional if used as the jersey color. Pair it with white pants and it could be a fun look. Also, the Dolphins got this right in all the ways the Jags got it wrong. They read their fan base and heard that they wanted orange back. And they correctly identified that the dark blue was needless clutter and added no value to their brand. But they also recognized that they didn’t need to reinvent the wheel and over correct the issue like Jacksonville ended up doing.
  8. Miami just went from a decent and clean look, albeit a bit generic and bland to a fantastic and modern interpretation of what the Dolphins should look like. Amazing how such a small change can drastically improve the look. The removal of the dark blue and the changes to the orange make this an awesome look.
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    It appears like there’s a thin outline on the numbers that matches the jersey color, similar to how the Raiders started doing black outlines on their silver numbers which are pretty much invisible against the black jerseys.
  10. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Ok, these numbers are much better than the originally leaked plain block. Take these and add number outlines and pants stripes and they might have something here.
  11. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    These are a complete overcorrection and devoid of any personality. The Jaguars are not a classic team that should be dressing up like Penn State, Alabama, or the NY Giants. They are a 90s team that uses the most 90s color possible: teal. I have never associated a standard block font with the Jags. Sure, they wore it for a fleeting moment in their franchise’s infancy, but beyond that they’ve always had custom fonts (Fred Taylor era, modified block on their late 2000s piping set, current font). If they wanted to go with a simple look, they should have let their custom font carry the design and give it some life rather than strip their set down to what is nearly now a practice uniform. A simple design with their custom font (including the number outlines) and some form of pants stripes would do wonders for this set. As it is, it’s a perfectly serviceable and also completely bland uniform. There is no warmth to it with the total lack of gold. This set proves that they wanted to run far away from their current flop of a design and went about 10 steps too far and ended up with the most safe and again, bland look possible.

    Obviously this is not from the Jaguars, but it looks very close to what is sometimes called wintergreen.
  13. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Yeah I’m a little confused about these rumors we’ve seen. To me, returning to tradition looks something like this: I would even accept this (with a solid black helmet), as the color balance of teal, black, and gold still makes them look like the Jaguars. And I know because this is Nike, that it will be something of a reinterpretation rather than an outright throwback. The white jersey from their current set is really the only one that still feels remotely traditional. Even this one isn’t terrible. It’s not great, but it still looks like the Jags. Just a bit bland and generic and missing the warmth of the gold, but the teal is prominent. This, with its black numbers, is far from traditional: Nor are these possible leaks traditional. Sure, the helmet is fixed, and teal is prominent, however, traditional for the Jags doesn’t include introducing a Color Rush looking set with dark numbers on a dark jersey.
  14. What do we know about the new Dolphins set?

    Brown1 has been here for a whole 72 hours and has already been promoted to “poster to watch in 2018.” Nice work!
  15. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Oklahoma finally acknowledged what we all knew was coming. The article says that change to the new fonts will occur as replacement uniforms are needed rather than an overnight change for all sports. However, with OU’s Jumpman announcement, I’d expect football and basketball to be some of the first to debut the new gear since they’re already updating those programs.
