  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    So, in the end, navy is only being used on the one Cavs jersey (wine) where it makes the numbers illegible. Nike! (I actually don't hate these The Land jerseys, but they would be helped immensely by some wine trim.)

    Majestic has its own foibles. The mesh inserts on MLB jerseys the past few years are horrendous. (Seriously, if you want a mesh insert down the entire side, why have two mesh pieces sewn together instead of one? How many seams do we need?) Also: Majestic's inability to get colors right on replicas drives me nuts. Put an Indians navy authentic and replica next to each other. It's not even close. The replica is almost purple. I will give Majestic a nod for keeping its maker's mark relatively unobtrusive on the sleeve. That's already strike one on UA based on what we've heard about 2019 and beyond.
  3. MLB changes 2018?

    How many meetings do the commissioner and the Indians ownership need to have about this? It's getting absurd.
  4. MLB changes 2018?

    I agree, and I hestitated to post, but if the alts aren't changing, it seems pretty clear Wahoo isn't being ditched yet. Another year of inane arguments YAAAAAAAAAY
  5. MLB changes 2018?

    According to the Indians beat writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, it sounds like no changes to the team's uniforms for 2018: http://www.cleveland.com/tribe/index.ssf/2017/10/how_did_the_cleveland_indians.html Wahoo survives for at least one more year, apparently.
  6. MLB Changes 2017

    I'm an Indians fan, and I regretted not getting a World Series hoodie last year. After the Dodgers clinched, I joked I was 5% less disappointed by the Tribe's early flameout because this year's hoodie (which uses that same "WS" design) is so awful. I have no idea why MLB would try to get "WS" over as a thing with its merchandise. You hear ALCS/NLCS regularly, and the division series acronym eventually caught on. No one will ever see "WS" and think "World Series."

    Those Suns throwbacks are just such a great uniform, and if they were primaries, Phoenix would have a top 5 set in the league.
  8. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    @andyfootball67 Well, I tried...
  9. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I still can't believe those gray Ohio State jerseys are OK with the NCAA. Trying to read the numbers is going to be a nightmare.

    This condensed NBA scorebug for ESPN is a huge upgrade over the giant bar last year. Muy bueno.
  11. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Agreed...Even a green stroke around the numbers would do wonders for these new Minnesota uniforms.
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The really crazy thing is the play that resulted in LeBron's jersey tearing was so innocuous. If a jersey tears THAT easily, we're going to see this happening constantly.
  13. MLB Changes 2017

    The Indians have followed a pretty standard formula all season: When Bauer starts, it's standard home white/road gray. When anyone else starts, it's the navy jersey whenever possible with the home or road Wahoo hat. The lone exception is when Danny Salazar starts at home, in which case it's navy jersey/red hat.
  14. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    I'm more surprised the Cavs won't have a navy uniform. Navy has mostly been their go-to option on the road in the playoffs, and this will be the first time in either LeBron era in Cleveland that they will go into the playoffs without a navy option.
  15. NBA Changes 2017-18

    But for the Cavs, they cheaped out on including the gold trim on the front of the collar. That's weak.
  16. It's an interesting decision, and it certainly plays into the notion they have buyer's remorse on this redesign. Personally, though, I'll take any combo with the white jerseys over any with these brown jerseys. I like having numbers you can see. To be clear, though, if the Browns stuck white numbers on the brown jersey, that absolutely would be my preference.
  17. Browns confirmed a few things on Twitter today: - White jerseys/white pants again this week (no mention of socks) - Orange jerseys won't be used at all this year. Color rush won't be used at all this season either. (That's two straight years for no color rush. Thought they might use it in London since that's technically a TNF production, but no.) - Brown over brown will happen at some point.
  18. That was the original plan, right? Before the league and Nike realized several teams already had throwbacks and that more money could be made by creating a new concept that would result in an additional uniform for every team instead of just some?
  19. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I'm waiting for ESPN to add in the playoffs/Finals logos on the court as TV graphics (they've already done it with the shot clock and ads for college games), or for the NBA to use custom floors for the Finals, like the All-Star Game.
  20. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    From a very reliable sports biz reporter in Cleveland: What in the world are the Cavs planning for their fourth uniform?
  21. MLB changes 2018?

    THIS. I often wonder how many "keep Wahoo" fans would finally flip if they were given an alternative with some personality. In the past 30 years, the only other options have been a block C or script I.
  22. MLB changes 2018?

    Actually, not nearly as much as you might expect. The team has made a very conscious effort to minimize the use of Wahoo outside of its uniforms and apparel in recent years. In 2015, for example, they did a 20-year anniversary celebration for the 1995 team that won the AL pennant. No Wahoo anywhere on the promotional giveaway item. Just the Indians script. From an ebay listing:
  23. MLB changes 2018?

    I'm probably opening Pandora's box here, but honestly, I'd be pretty surprised if Chief Wahoo is still on any Indians jerseys or hats next year.
  24. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    Please refresh my memory, friends: Have we heard any rumblings about the Cavs' fourth jersey? I swear Someone Who Knows Things says it's going to be navy, but I'm hearing it might be orange. I'm extremely skeptical of that. I just assumed it would be navy with a wine "CAVS" wordmark and numbers, pretty much a straight update of their previous navy. @Conrad., is that something you could mock up?
  25. NBA Changes 2017-18

    No opinion either way on the new playoffs logo. I was never in love with the old one, so no great loss there. The new Finals logo, though? Awful. The double-decker design is just so awkward, especially when you can remove "THE" or put "NBA" inside the league logo where it belongs, and make the logo a single deck. (Still worse than the classic logo, but better than this disaster.) Also: Guess we finally will get a new jersey patch in the Finals this year too?
