    San Diego Padres focus-grouping new uniforms for 2020

    The blue-and-gold look has become very overrated, in all honesty. They still looked boring and derivative; the only difference was that they were trying to rip off the Rays instead of the Yankees. Plus, what people always leave out when they pine for the 2016 look is that gold still wasn't used on the road uniforms or anywhere else outside of the brown-and-gold fauxbacks (which were the actual best part of that set). It was just another half-assed attempt at a rebrand, like everything else the Padres have done since they ditched brown. At the end of the day, until the Padres go back to their roots and embrace the brown-and-gold color scheme, they will never truly have an identity.
  2. In a vacuum, this would be a nice look for the Cardinals. In reality, the Birds on the Bat is their thing and they'd look wrong at this point without it. My recommendation would be to leave the striping as-is but bring back the Birds on the Bat scripts.

    Getting rid of the salary cap would be the second-best thing that ever happened to the Clippers (Sterling's wife selling the team will always be #1). It would be bad for the league, though.

    MLB changes 2018?

    There's a lot more to the story than that - in fact, Jonah Keri wrote a whole book about it a few years ago.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Other than the BFBS, Iowa State's uniforms aren't bad (though they do need gold pants). However, I was really hoping they'd go with something more inspired by their basketball uniforms.

    Sierra Mist? Mist Twst?

    Is it just me, or is that logo extremely dated? It looks like it's straight out of 1999.

    Shai's Summer League jersey is even crazier than his real jersey:

    Exactly. They're still better than the Adidas crap by virtue of looking like actual uniforms, but the design makes no sense.

    Thanks for proving my point. LeBron competed against the Celtics. He didn't go join them.

    Not to mention, Draymond wouldn't have been suspended for the nut punch if he hadn't previously tackled Michael Beasley and kicked Steven Adams in the nuts earlier in the playoffs. He earned that suspension by racking up flagrant fouls with his dirty play. I love how people bring that up as an example of the NBA "rigging the series for LeBron." What they're really mad about is that the NBA didn't rig the series against LeBron by not enforcing their own rules on Draymond. Also: Kevin Love missed a game in the 2016 Finals as well. That always gets glossed over too.

    This league is such a pathetic joke right now. We have a generation of cowardly superstars now who refuse to compete. Thanks, Kevin Durant! Hope the cheap rings were worth it.

    No, just no. And you're forgetting about Kobe fans (the absolute worst).

    Being a Clippers fan is like being a Browns fan if they shared a city with the Patriots.

    Moving to Seattle is still an objectively bad business decision for the Clippers regardless of who's on the Lakers. Besides, Seattle will probably get an expansion team soon anyway.

    My all-time favorite player just joined my most hated team in sports. And the Warriors still exist. It's official: my interest in the NBA has reached an all-time low.

    Considering that isn't even the right NOB font, I'm thinking it's just a bad photoshop.

    Don't expect much from Austin other than making pull-up threes at a surprisingly decent rate. When his shot isn't falling, he's basically unplayable. He won't contribute in other ways like creating for others, getting rebounds, playing defense, etc.

    Biggest Downgrades in History

    I also prefer the old cardinal to the new cardinal. It defies all my usual aesthetic preferences, but the old one looks more dignified and I like how angular it is. The only thing I would change is to add a black outline like the current logo has.

    The Nepotism Era is over in LA. Austin Rivers has been traded to the Wizards for Marcin Gortat.

    Utah Jazz

    I've always preferred Utah's '90s identity over their music note identity, so this is my latest attempt at updating it. As usual with my Jazz concepts, I went back to the '90s color scheme, but eliminated purple and promoted copper to primary status. The wordmarks draw inspiration from both their '90s uniforms and their 2000s uniforms. I did decide to keep their current City Edition uniforms relatively intact because I like them, and from my understanding, they're popular with Jazz fans.

    Unpopular Opinions

    The color balance absolutely was not better in the past. There was no pewter at all on the jerseys in the '90s set. Pewter was and is their unique color, yet they managed to leave it off the jerseys entirely in favor of generic red and black. Their current uniforms are a big improvement in that regard.

    Carolina Hurricanes Unveil New Black Third Uniform

    Are we sure the yoke is actually a different color? It could be the mesh material just reflecting differently in the light.

    Memphis Grizzlies Appear to be Tweaking Logos

    They should have at least switched back to brown, teal and red. I don't really see how grey improves their current color scheme.
