  1. I was happy with the work done by ExclusivePro.com years ago. Not the fastest service, but the quality of work was top-notch. I'd go with them again no questions asked if the need arose.
  2. It might not have generated the most chatter, but the Buccaneers overhaul was interesting because I don't think anyone realized just how significant their changes would be. Maybe I'm misremembering, but I felt like the discussion ahead of their unveil was "some minor tweaks for Tampa," and then we got asymmetrical sleeve designs, chrome facemasks, oversized helmet logos and of course reflective digital alarm clock numbers.
  3. The Rockets are wearing black at home. Weren't we told last year that league rules prevented the Cavs from wearing black at home in game 6 of the Finals? Guess that's out the window?
  4. Indians back to the Wahoo hat with the navy jersey at home again today. Ugh. I wasn't high on the idea of the red hat with the Block C/navy jersey combo at home when it was first announced, but it looked pretty good on the field. Would be nice to stick with it.
  5. I don't really like any of the Stance designs, but I think I could live with them if each team had one designated on-field design* and then offered a bunch of different fashion styles that weren't for use in games. Of course, that wouldn't be as much of a money maker, so I won't bother getting my hopes up. Sigh. (* Unless it's that skyline sock for Houston. Under no circumstances should that debacle see the field.)
  6. Something interesting I heard yesterday. Hosts on one of the local sports talk stations were discussing a report from a Browns beat writer, who said one of the reasons the Browns players dislike the current jerseys because the numbers aren't flexible enough and it affects the fit of the jersey. And not only are the Browns looking at a total overhaul in 2020, but they are evaluating options for lesser tweaks in the meantime. I assume that just means finding a different way to apply the numbers, but who knows. Don't forget: The first time the team wore the new brown jerseys in the 2015 preseason, the coaching staff complained about the orange numbers making it hard to identify players on all-22 film. Probably not something that could be fixed now, but it's worth asking.
  7. If you want new logos, you might just get your wish:
  8. I'm a little surprised the Browns would come out and say this already, but yeah, I don't think anyone in Cleveland would complain if this happens.
  9. So...If the Redskins dislike their color rush uniform enough that they want to institute a rule making color rush optional, why not just design a better color rush uniform in the first place? It's like someone jn their front office just got a memo and said, "Wait, we actually have to WEAR these? Like, in an actual game??"
  10. Hot take: I hate these floors used in the first two rounds. The colors are hideous, and there's just way too much going on between all the colors in the out of bounds area and all the various wood stains in play. And on its own, the March Madness logo is fine, but I'm not a fan of it at center court. All that said, this might be my favorite Final Four court ever. The multi-color wood stain is more palatable when you don't drop a box of Crayolas around the perimeter, I guess.
  11. Somehow, though, no one has ever gotten pinned during a commercial break. It's uncanny!
  12. I mostly like the Knicks uniforms now, but the unfinished trim around the shoulders and neckline remind me of the truncated sleeved stripes on the cheap NFL replicas found at low-end stores. Meh.
  13. Of course. If you are spending an obscene amount of money to have your logo on a jersey, the point is for it to get noticed. Sucks for those of us who care about uniform aesthetics, but making ad patches that blend in is not the goal for anyone involved with their creation and it never will be.
  14. Something to keep an eye on as more of these deals are announced: Thus far, every team that has had an event to officially unveil their jersey patch sponsor has displayed a jersey with the actual ad patch. Given that the Cavs are rumored to be one of the teams getting a makeover, I wonder if they'll show a current jersey with the Goodyear patch. If not, that might be a clue that the patch won't ever be used on the current jersey because a new one is coming. Speaking of which: In a weird way, I think it will be much less jarring to see ads on new uniforms next year than the existing designs. After, what, 50 years?, we have an expectation of what the Celtics uniform looks like, for example. But a team with a new design won't really have that familiarity built in.
  15. Sounds like the Cavs have a deal in place for their jersey ad patch with Goodyear: The company has been based in Akron since it was founded in 1898, so definitely some strong local ties with Northeast Ohio.
