  1. Do Uniforms Matter to Recruits?

    I'd understand the love for Penn State's uniforms if they still had the contrasting collar and trim. Without that, they're basically wearing practice jerseys.
  2. Unpopular Opinions

    Still one of my favorite NHL uniforms ever: Admittedly, the sock striping is terrible. But the sweater got way too much hate at the time. The striping looked nice, and the shoulder logo doubling as a football-style shoulder stripe was a brilliant idea.
  3. BP Jerseys in regular season games

    The Orioles did it against the Rays a few years ago.
  4. 2015-16 NBA Thread

    The Warriors have been full of themselves since they hired Mark Jackson. His arrogance clearly rubbed off on that team, even after he was fired. Most people just didn't notice it because the media was so busy shoving them down our throats as "the most loveable team ever."
  5. Players You Hate

    NBA: Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Karl Malone, the Warriors' entire current team (especially Draymond Green: a role player who talks trash as if he's prime Jordan, is the dirtiest player in the league by far, and is coddled by the league and refs) NFL: Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, Bill Romanowski, Cam Newton, David Boston, Jared Gaither, Hines Ward, Jay Cutler... I could go on. NHL: Brad Marchand, Zdeno Chara, Ryan Kesler, Corey Perry, James Neal, Mike Smith MLB: Derek Jeter, David Ortiz, Nomar Garciaparra, Manny Ramirez, David Eckstein, Milton Bradley
  6. Really unusual color schemes (that work)

    The color scheme is fine, but the way they used it back then was godawful. It looks like someone stole their jerseys and they had to borrow their opponents' road jerseys for the game.
  7. NBA Changes 2016-17 Season

    I don't think it's fair to say that tanking was the end of Hinkie's strategy. He was forced out of the Sixers before he could see his plan to completion. And let's be real, Bryan Colangelo is not going to have a better plan for the Sixers than Hinkie did. We all saw the moves he made in Toronto when his dad wasn't around to make him look good: drafting Bargnani; trading the farm for T.J. Ford and Rudy Gay; overpaying Bargs, Jason Kapono and Landry Fields; riding the treadmill of mediocrity every year despite insisting they weren't. In contrast, Hinkie has stockpiled young talent and given the Sixers a ton of flexibility, which will now be wasted on mediocre players and a desperate drive towards the 8th seed.
  8. NBA Changes 2016-17 Season

    It's mostly just ignorance on the part of fans, coaches and GMs who are still stuck in the old-school mentality. Steph Curry went 7th overall, Dirk went 9th, Kawhi Leonard went 15th, Steve Nash went 15th, Manu Ginobili was drafted in the second round, etc. In fairness, there are also terrible drafts like 2000 where even the top 5 have questionable talent. It's still better to secure the highest draft pick possible in order to have the most options, but the idea that there's no talent outside of the top five every year is stupid.
  9. appropriate name for Vancouver based NBA team.

    To be fair, the Lions' name was indicative of the area. They picked the name because it fit with the Tigers - who, in turn, were named after the Detroit Light Guard (who were commonly referred to as "The Tigers").
  10. NBA Changes 2016-17 Season

    The Blazers have actually won a championship (in 1977), which is more than most NBA teams can say. They made the Finals two more times in the early '90s. Then they assembled one of the most stacked teams in recent memory in the late '90s, but had the misfortune of running into prime Duncan and prime Shaq and letting a dunce like Mike Dunleavy "coach" the team. The "Jail Blazers" era is where their franchise started to fall off. The clear demarcation point was the 2003-04 season: before then, they had only missed the playoffs once in the previous 27 years; a run that included the aforementioned championship and Finals appearances. Since that season, they've missed the playoffs seven times and only won two series - one unfortunately coming against the hobbled Clippers this year. That being said, if Roy and Oden had ever been able to stay healthy, or if the Blazers had picked Durant instead of Oden, they might have returned to their former glory.
  11. 2016 CFL Uniforms

    I actually like BC's helmets, but the uniforms are pretty mediocre. Especially the orange jersey, which needs white trim for contrast.
  12. 2016 CFL Uniforms

    The Stampeders look good. Nobody else does, though. Especially Montreal, whose uniforms continue to be a dumpster fire of mismatched piping and panels.
  13. NBA Changes 2016-17 Season

    The new uniforms are an improvement over what they had, I guess, but they're still generic as hell. In all honesty, there's not much you can do with that bland color scheme and those tacky logos that belong in the '70s. They could stand out with a color scheme based around the copper color they used in the '90s, which I've done a few times in my concepts for them, but they'd rather be another generic navy sports team.
  14. To the best of my knowledge, the only franchises that have yet to wear any throwbacks are the Ravens, Texans, Jaguars, Carolina Panthers, Hurricanes, Avalanche, Blue Jackets, Stars, Florida Panthers, Wild, Predators, Lightning, and Winnipeg Jets.
