  1. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Speaking of strawmen, this isn't true in the slightest. There are plenty of Nike uniforms I don't like - we're currently posting in a thread about one of them. I've also praised Under Armour, Majestic, Reebok, and even Russell and Adidas uniforms in the past when I've liked them. Just because I'm not agreeing with people's theories about what the color of the Swoosh on teams' jerseys really means doesn't make me a "Swooshkateer."

    As far as the Swoosh is concerned... let's not pretend that other manufacturers haven't been just as guilty of making their logos stand out on the jerseys. If anything, both of these examples are worse than what people are complaining about with the Swoosh. The Wilson logo features a color (metallic gold) that doesn't appear anywhere else on the Dolphins' uniform - as well as a black outline that further contrasts with Miami's color scheme. And the Adidas logo uses two different colors at the same time to really draw attention to it. But people will complain more now because it's Nike.
  3. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I definitely agree that Nike should stop meddling in teams' uniform rotations. That's really my only complaint with the Nike era. (I don't like the ads on jerseys, either, but that is a league directive, not a manufacturer directive, obviously.) Aesthetically, Nike's "look at me" design element (scapula seams) is more tolerable than Adidas' "look at me" design element (sleeves). And most teams seem to be getting a lot more creative with alternates under Nike than they ever did with Adidas. It's clear that NBA alternates are now going to be more like third jerseys in hockey instead of recolors of the main set. I think people would be less frustrated/confused if they adjust their expectations accordingly. Overall, the Nike era has still been a big step up from the Adidas era, IMO.
  4. 2018 NBA Post Season

    In all honesty, they should at least trade one of Lillard/McCollum. Their team is poorly constructed, built around two scoring guards who can't defend. Making matters worse, they gave so much money to scrubs like Evan Turner and Meyers Leonard, it's now practically impossible for them to make incremental improvements around the core. Ten straight playoff losses, including getting swept in the first round when they had homecourt advantage, says the status quo isn't working for them. They're a team that should consider making drastic moves.
  5. The helmet version is superior, IMO. Look at how much better that T is! They really should standardize around that version instead.
  6. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The current state of affairs is nowhere near as bad as that period of a few years when Adidas was trying to shove sleeved jerseys down our throats every chance they got. I actually like how creative teams have gotten with their alternates under Nike. It's a big improvement over this mess:

    Someone should have told that to Nike and the Jaguars, because the home and road jerseys are almost completely devoid of color.
  8. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    To be fair, the Jags' new look is the laziest uniforms possible. They look like practice gear because that's apparently "old-school," as opposed to the return to Jaguars tradition that they promised.
  9. Unpopular Opinions

    Doubt it. They would still blend in with the million other teams that use navy as their main color.
  10. College Football uniforms- 2018

    The new wordmark looks pretty nice, although they should have extended the horizontal bars on the baseline of the E's to match the other letters. The new shade of gold is a disappointment. It's pretty much the blandest shade of vegas gold imaginable. The uniforms will undoubtedly suck, because the TechFit template makes every uniform look horrible.
  11. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    ...they would still be one of the worst-dressed teams in the league.
  12. This is a major improvement. Probably the best uniforms they've ever worn (I always thought their throwback look was highly overrated).
  13. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Horrible. Glorified practice gear.
  14. The Knights won the division and made the playoffs in the first season ever. No matter what, they're not "suffering" this year. That ship has sailed.
  15. College Football uniforms- 2018

    This design definitely fits better with their logo and font than the old UCLA stripes, which never looked quite right on them anyway. They need to ditch the helmet stripes, though.
