  1. Football Fields with Baseball Diamonds

    Yeah it turned out pretty nice! Haven't seen it in person but from photos it looks good. I think they have plans down the road to demolish the right field bleachers but don't hold me to it. But I think that's the plan.

    A couple from my local area: Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium Georgia State Stadium I kid, I kid...1996 Olympics venue turned Braves stadium turned Georgia State football stadium. Here are the other configurations for those interested. Olympics Georgia State ---------------------- Marlins / Dolphins
  3. 2017 MLS Kit Matchups

    It's a shame that Atlanta and Orlando won't wear their primary kits against each other. This is what we've gotten in each of the three games this season: Atlanta and Orlando's Unified teams have played each other and both times they wore the primary kits. I think it looks great and would work.
  4. MLB Changes 2017

    Braves wearing their "Los Bravos" set today. Still absolutely despise it. Adding "the" to the script does nothing to acknowledge the Hispanic community. Not to mention that the script is completely jacked up. "Bravos" is the same length as "Braves" and somehow it's positioned totally different than it normally sits. I think they tried to make sure "Los" did not overlap the headspoon but it looks terrible. The script is also skewed very poorly. Compare the angle of the script compared to that of the tomahawk. They should parallel each other and yet they're so obviously off. It's like they offered this project to a high school intern and the result is what we see today. As a Braves fan, this is terrible.
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    All white head to toe is getting out of control. I think there were like 30 teams that did it last week (and probably the week before that). Might be a slight exaggeration but it's ridiculous how many teams do it.

    Here are a few better pictures. Didn't even know they had a road version. Both look great. You can tell the writing is on the wall for a change very soon.

    Ole Miss: Anything other than the gray pants with the red and blue double stripe looks wrong.

    Different helmet pairing than last year's look.
  9. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    FSU vs Bama was a really nice looking matchup, but I was disappointed to see the Noles did not update their template. They were one of the teams I was hoping would update the most since their collar pattern looks ugly the way it doesn't connect in the front. Also their sleeves look goofy with the garnet patterned panel. It's an odd shape and not a traditional sleeve cap. The new Nike template would do wonders for them. This version was much nicer with the full collar and more simple sleeve caps. While they couldn't put the pattern at the base of the collar triangle on the new template, they could color it in and stop the pattern at the triangle and it would be much better than what they have now.

    Ugly design aside and whether or not there is actually an FCS rule for this, my thought process is that it is fair to punish these lower levels teams. Reason being that they are scheduling the big boys with the big FBS payout. If they are planning to play FBS level competition and collect those cupcake game paychecks, they should be expected to abide by FBS level rules.
  11. Not to nitpick, but the Cardinals graphic isn't quite correct. Their cardinal colored shoulders don't come all the way to the base of the collar triangle thing. They are shaped very similar to the old template. The red shoulder stops almost midway between the shoulder numbers and the NFL shield. Though, I do think your version looks better...almost like the Bengals use.
  12. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    For having such a nice color scheme, Dortmund's obsession with gradients and ugly stripes really lends them to churn out a lot of duds.
  13. NFL 2017 changes?

    Just saw the stadium in person on Saturday for the season ticket holders open house event and it is incredible. That retractable roof opening might look small from the outside but that's because the building is so massive. The opening shares the same space as the halo board and that's a real sight to behold. While it isn't truly open air, it does a good job of being the best of both worlds. The concourses and corners have a lot of glass letting in natural light, and of course the "window to the city" is absolutely gigantic. I think it'll be great to open it up on a nice fall day but also keep it closed on a hot day with some of that natural light coming in. My understanding of the roof delay is that it moves but is currently manually operated. They are working on the automation process given that the roof petals are different sizes and they have to travel at different speeds to open and close simultaneously. I'm confident they'll get that figured out eventually given they've already manually operated it multiple times now. While Atlanta and the surrounding area isn't super hilly, there are tons of smaller rolling hills. Not big, but they're there. Here are some pics from the open house I attended:
  14. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    I'm sure for most people it was devastating that the team left San Diego to go represent another city. They may still look like the same Chargers but they sure aren't San Diego's Chargers anymore. If one of my favorite teams moved away, I guarantee my interest would plummet given they're no longer the "home squad." The players and coaches come and go. The logos may evolve over time. It's that emotional connection knowing that team represents your city that creates that bond. If one of my teams decided 20 years from now that they'd like to move a state away, sure, it wouldn't be a terrible drive to go see a game...but they wouldn't be my city's team and that's all the difference in the world. I'm sure most San Diegans feel the same way.
  15. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Love the idea behind the Maryland throwback but hate the execution. That set is just screaming for smaller numbers. We know it can be done. The Packers, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and to a lesser extent the Steelers bumblebees, have all done it off the top of my head. I'm sure there have been others. Not only that, but this is clearly a modern day block font and doesn't seem to mesh with what was typical from the era. They need to match the various stripes so they are all a similar width. In comparison to the 1940s set, the helmet and jersey stripes seem too thin while the pants stripe seems too thick. The undershirt also needs to be yellow to give the appearance of the old longer sleeves and it needs the stripes like it used to have. Think of the type of execution similar to those old Oregon State Pro Combats. So close and yet so far away. Edit- not to toot my own horn, but take this old Giants throwback I did a number of years ago. They need to get a better balance of the weight of the numbers (size and thickness, as well as width...the older style numbers were more wide than the typical block style seen today) as well as the chest stripes.
