  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    According to the Locker Vision site, you are correct. District uniforms for games 3 and 4.
  2. Wow, I can't get over how much more I like the Dolphins' uniforms after such a minor change. One of the best examples I can ever remember of how important even small details can be.
  3. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Assuming the Nike site is correct, when the Cavs-Pacers series shifts to Indy, Cleveland will be wearing wine. That's the first time the Cavs will have worn wine in the playoffs since 2010. By my count, they've worn navy in 27 road games and black for four.
  4. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    Given the writer's track record in recent years, I wouldn't exactly take that report that Lukas is citing as gospel, for what it's worth.
  5. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Ok, this seems a little more reasonable.
  6. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Were we aware that Nike is apparently determining what every team wears--including accessories--for every game now? This is crazy.
  7. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    They made a big point of having focus groups to provide fan input on the 2015 redesign, so yeah...proceed with great caution if you go down that road.
  8. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    This would be a top-5 uniform in the NFL. Great color balance, clean design. Make this your uniform, and you would be set for a long time.
  9. NBA Changes 2018-19

    I wonder if the City uniforms might get released earlier next year, and if that would help with the sense that we are being inundated by them lately. If a team wants to wear them 12 times over the course of five months, that seems more palatable than making up for lost time by shoehorning them in 12 times in 2-3 months.

    THAT'S what that notch was? I thought it was just some sort of asymmetrical design, and it drove me nuts. Never noticed that it switched teams based on possession.
  11. Super Bowl LII Field

    I don't know if it was different paint or something else, but the end zones held up much better this year than last year in Houston. By the 4th quarter of Pats-Falcons, everything looked badly washed out.
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    For the NBA, it would probably be fine, but I will say that I have kept the score book for a few local high school all-star games in recent years, and trying to ID players without front numbers was a nightmare.
  13. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    I was confused by why the Eagles graphics had light green accents while the Patriots had accents in an actual team color (red). Also, there was a weird notch between one team name box and their score, but not the other. Overall, the new graphics looked pretty good, but there were a few idiosyncrasies that made me scratch my head.

    "Rip City" is cool. Seeing "ripcity," it looks like it should be pronounced "RIP-sid-ee," which sounds like a tech firm that will go out of business in 2 years.
  15. Super Bowl LII Field

    The NFL really needs to rethink these endzone design conventions moving forward. Neither the Patriots nor Eagles wordmarks were designed for off-center applications. Just looks brutally awkward. On a separate note: I can't find the photo now, but it looks like we're getting yard numbers in the Vikings' font only without purple trim. I was under the impression the Vikings had their field markings stitched in and not painted on. Did the NFL bring in a whole new field?
  16. Kinda curious to see what happens with the Super Bowl field this year. Minnesota's field has the Vikings' font for yard numbers and the 25-yard lines trimmed in purple. Are they bringing in a whole new field for the game?
  17. Am I crazy or is Belichick wearing a pre-Nike contract Reebok hoodie tonight?
  18. How much can you "update" a classic?

    My only thought on updating a classic: If you go as far as the Browns did, you went too far. (The lesson, as always: Never go full Browns.)

    Re: No more East vs West... I would assume we'll get jerseys without team names, like these from 2003
  20. Do You Remember Champion Athletic?

    YES. Did they go out of business in the middle of the season one year? I remember them doing the Cowboys' gear, and at some point during the '95 season, the Cowboys coaches started wearing generic navy sideline apparel (no team or manufacturer logos) and the players' jerseys had no logos. Really strange. You can see it here during Super Bowl XXX:

    One of my biggest sports broadcasting pet peeves... I'm watching Davidson-New Mexico State on ESPNU. Davidson is wearing red with white numbers. NMSU is wearing white with gray numbers. Guess which team is denoted on the score graphic with red background/white numbers and which one is dark gray/white?
  22. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Pretty sure that as long as you are using existing uniforms, you can designate whichever one you want as your primary color uniform each season. Only restriction is that you are limited to the number of times you can wear whichever one is designated as the alternate.
  23. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Heard from a Person Who Knows Things today that production on the City edition jerseys is delayed. They were supposed to be released at retail this month, but that's not happening now.
  24. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Http:// Huh...This is interesting... The Cavs finally published their jersey schedule for the rest of the year, and there's no sign of a fourth jersey anywhere. White, wine or black listed for every remaining game. Hmm...
  25. NBA Changes 2017-18

    If the Cavs' game preview image on social media is accurate (and it usually is), I think we are getting Cavs in black vs Bulls in red tonight in Chicago.
