    NFL changes 2019

    Nope, that’s the one combo with their current set that has never been worn. The orange jerseys haven’t been worn with any color pants since 2016.
  2. I’ll never understand why the Rams changed to the white horns/facemask and single-stripe pants for their non-throwback uniform sets. It just looks so disjointed from the gold-trimmed jerseys, which have remained unchanged from St. Louis. Either overhaul the whole set or wait to overhaul the whole set until you move into the new stadium.
  3. Obviously a moot point if the Saints win this weekend, but the Super Bowl field will look so weird if the Rams play. The endzone presumably will be navy blue and white, while the team wears royal blue and gold. Not to mention the wordmark that they don’t even use on their own field. I’d like to believe the NFL would use some common sense with the field design, but my hopes are...not high.
  4. Just noticed there are no playoff logos on the field in Dallas. Was that the case in Houston too?
  5. Surprised the Browns broke out the brown pants. I don’t think they’ve worn brown pants on the road since Week 2, when they had a brutal loss vs the Saints. Not to mention they had a lot of success in the orange pants down the stretch this year.

    That is true. The brown was tweaked with the previous uniform update in 2006. Darker, yes, but I always thought it contrasted better with the lighter pre-2015 orange.

    The Browns’ color rush is actually the same brown as their standard brown jersey, which is the same shade of brown as their previous uniforms, pre-2015. The orange was tweaked in 2015, the brown was not. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/12374006/cleveland-browns-tweak-helmet-color-unveil-new-dawg-pound-logo

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Facebook used to have a rule for brand pages that said no more than 20% of a cover photo could be text. It’ll never happen, but I wish the NBA would adopt a similar percentage rule for jersey ads. Theoretically, all jersey ads fit within the same 2x2 space. But there is a huge difference for how intrusive various teams’ patches are depending on the logo design. Compare Miami’s Ultimate Software and Cleveland’s Goodyear patches vs Indy’s Motorola and Boston’s GE, for example.

    I thought this passage from that article was interesting: Teams try to avoid wearing jerseys that are the same shade as huge portions of the court; players become harder to spot as they traverse the paint. (David Stern, the league's former commissioner, threw a fit when he flipped to a Rockets game in the mid-1990s and struggled to spot players wearing blue jerseys flitting through the blue portions of Houston's infamous floor from that regrettable design era.) Seems like this philosophy is mostly out the window with teams wearing color uniforms at home as often as their white uniforms now, no?

    I’m a little surprised the Cavs went with two “wave” motif jerseys that are a callback to their mid-90s uniforms this year. Not only is next year their 50th season, it’s also the 25th anniversary of their move back into downtown Cleveland when the then-Gund Arena opened. Next year will also mark the completion of the arena’s big renovation that is currently in progress. All of that would point to next year being a perfect time for a throwback to the 1994-95 jerseys and a City uniform that pays tribute to the team moving back from Richfield.

    Cleveland Indians Unveil New Uniform, Cap for 2019

    Number font is staying the same, yes. That font that @msu shared looks a lot like what the Indians use on the signage around Progressive Field though. Kinda surprised it has never been used on the uniforms.

    That new navy jersey is a dud. The ultra-traditional wordmark doesn’t work with an alt, and why no trim? Big fan of the red jersey and new hat, though. Also not mentioned here, but confirmed elsewhere: The all red/navy C hat is done. Too bad. I thought that worked with the home white jersey.

    Cleveland Indians Unveil New Uniform, Cap for 2019

    I’ve never understood the love for that ’70s C. It might not be as generic as the Block C, but that doesn’t also mean it’s actually any good.

    While the Indians are in the business of making tweaks to their uniforms, it would be nice for them to change the trim on their navy uniforms to either white or red. Gray isn’t a team color, and the navy alternate hasn’t been used for just road games in years. The gray trim looks really out of place at home.
