  1. Which team has the worst identity?

    Brown and gold All-Star merch flew off the shelves at a record pace in San Diego: http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2016/jul/15/padres-brown-gold-fanfest-record-sales/ The Padres even unveiled a brown and gold alternate this year in an attempt to appease the fans, who have been screaming for it for years. According to their online store, 7 of their top 11 jerseys in sales are brown and gold: http://m.mlbshop.com/San_Diego_Padres_Jerseys/so/top_sellers Seems to me that the fans have voted with their wallets. They want brown, not boring navy.
  2. Which team has the worst identity?

    The Padres may very well take the crown for the worst identity in sports. They created an identity crisis for no reason by ditching brown in favor of bland navy. To make matters worse, they have spent the last 25 years actively avoiding the obvious solution (returning to brown and gold) - instead trotting out a series of progressively bland uniforms and going through color schemes like toilet paper. Aside from the sand road uniforms of the mid-2000s, not a single one of these looks have been memorable, aesthetically pleasing, or comparable to anything they wore in the brown era. All that's left for them to do is give up and unveil yet another navy-and-red uniform set in a league that already has too many of them.
  3. College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    Sure, except for the fact that they look nothing at all like Boise's uniforms. Actually, I was inspired by this set:

    Anyway (shameless plug alert), this is what my ideal look for Houston would be:
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    Introducing the Housconsin Coughuskers. Yawn. Isn't one of the Louisiana schools ripping off Wisconsin and Nebraska this year as well?
  6. College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    That Notre Dame Shamrock Series uniform is absolutely atrocious. The ugly colors, the fifth-grader's scribble they're trying to pass off as a sleeve design that won't even be legible on TV, the hideous number font... I'm pretty sure even Adidas and Russell would be too ashamed to design and unveil something like that.
  7. Bill Cosby loses eyesight, now completely blind.

    Too bad he's only "trapped" in his home instead of the prison cell he deserves to be in.
  8. Nice France controversial artwork

    Shock value alone is not an artistic statement without depth to back it up. Strip away the context and the shock value from this poster and you're left with a graphic that looks boring and amateurish. All in all, it reeks of a cheap attempt by the artist to use a tragedy to draw attention to themselves.
  9. Jokes aside, it's a big upgrade from the "logo" he used in the primaries. At least there's more to it than just his last name in a bold font. It's also a big step up from this trainwreck: I'm not sure what's worse: the Aquafresh blob masquerading as an "R," or the awkward "EY" ligature that throws off the kerning. Yeesh.
  10. Nice France controversial artwork

    I'm assuming the poster is supposed to express sympathy, but I honestly thought it was ISIS propaganda celebrating the attack at first glance. When the intended message of the poster is so far off from what viewers come away thinking it represents, it isn't good design. It's also extremely insensitive and tasteless.
  11. mbannon's 2016 NFL Uniform Concepts - AFC North (7/17)

    The AFC East looks great overall, but I don't like the sleeve design on the Cowboys. It doesn't really look like a star to me, it just looks awkward. We know from last year that the actual double-star design still works on modern jersey templates, so why not just go with that?
  12. 2016 NBA Offseason thread

    I didn't mention anyone's name, and my point applies just as much to Derek Jeter, David Ortiz, or any other athlete that goes on one of these ridiculous self-serving retirement tours as it does to Kobe.
  13. 2016 NBA Offseason thread

    If Timmy's career must come to an end, I'm glad he's just quietly retiring. No drawn-out, histrionic, selfish, ego-driven retirement tours like certain other players - just bowing out and letting his impressive career speak for itself.
  14. Say it ain't so, Joe

    How the hell did this thread devolve into left vs. right crap? This isn't even a political issue. I don't care if you're an anarcho-capitalist or a full Communist, if you can't admit that Joe Paterno and the Penn State football program he built were pieces of :censored:, there's something wrong with you.
