  1. 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?
  2. Am I crazy or is Belichick wearing a pre-Nike contract Reebok hoodie tonight?
  3. 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
  5. 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?
  7. 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.

    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.

    Http://www.nba.com/cavaliers/jersey-schedule 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...

    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.
  11. I'm starting to wonder if we will ever see the Browns' CR uniforms on the field. Didn't wear them last year, won't this year. Gonna have two years left before the new sets come in 2020.
  12. THIS! Were they not aware that these would be used for games when they signed off on them? It's so bizarre.

    Does this Nike gold for the Lakers match 2016? 2001? 1988? How about this: No matter what it matches from the past, here in 2017, people don't like this color and nobody had a problem with what adidas used last year. There was no reason to change it other than Nike has to Nike. This is what they do. See: Michigan, UNC, the Browns, and on and on.

    That anthracite on the Nets uniforms is awful, especially when paired with black trim. It looks like faded black that is the result of cheap fabric or bad detergent. Hard pass on those ABA-inspired alts as well. Even if there is a historical precedent, we have enough stars and stripes teams now. We don't need another team making it into an alt.
  15. If the Redskins hate their color rush uniform so much, why did they sign off on that design? Like, how does that go down? Nike: Here's a new uniform design for you for our new color rush program. Redskins: Fine, whatever, go sell some jerseys. It's not like we actually have to wear this. NFL: Actually... Redskins: Wait, what? No! Hang on a second!!

    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.
  18. MLB changes 2018?

    How many meetings do the commissioner and the Indians ownership need to have about this? It's getting absurd.
  19. 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
  20. 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.

    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.

    @andyfootball67 Well, I tried...

    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.
