    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    Our official school colors are Gold and Silver. The silver helmet and reflective silver number outlines totally fit with our scheme. The grey jersey and pants don't fit as well but I'm fine with them for a one or two game alternate look. The GGG look shouldn't happen though.
  2. Nope, most people have not said that any of those years. 02, 10, and 14 were all very good performances. A world cup in the US is a huge benefit that could really help propel the team through a few knock out games. No, not that crew. Pulisic will probably be the only player that figured in 2017 that will make the WC roster. We've already fired our manager, president, etc. I would be shocked if even 10% of US Soccer from 2017 has ANY presence in the 2026 organization. It's so en vogue to ridicule US Soccer right now. How trendy! Most of these comments won't matter because people like Cujo only pay attention long enough to mock their own country and watch a few WC matches. US Soccer will turn it around, we have never had more talent or resources to do it. If they aren't serious contenders by 2026 they certainly will be shortly after. We are the sleeping giant of the world's game. If we ever decide to get our heads out of our asses, make soccer accessible to kids, and provide a better pipeline we will consistently be a WC contender.
  3. Late on this, but that is a really stupid comment for a tournament that is 8 years away. There are likely fifth graders that will be on those teams by the time this takes place. Also, it took an absolute perfect storm disaster to keep the US out of this tournament. We should be challenging for the semifinals by 2026.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    Nope, I responded to that comment saying I wanted a HOUSTON Oilers-esque color scheme just with yellow replacing white. I may not 'remember' the Oilers (I was two when they left for TN) but I will never forget that beautiful color scheme and those fun teams they had with Warren Moon. I would imagine similar sentiments among 90's kids on these boards are similar. On that note, why have the Nuggets deemphasized the yellow so much? It won't be the base color for the city edition jersey and it plays a very minor role on the other three jerseys. This is the exact opposite of what I expected after the emphasis of yellow on last year's apparel and warm up gear.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    Nope, Houston. I would love to see the Nuggz in a sky blue, red, yellow combo with almost no white. Similar color balance as the Oilers but with yellow replacing white.

    I don't think this has been posted but apologies if I missed it. The Nuggets reddit has been a good place for info on this reveal, they have done a good job compiling the Evolve videos from the team. The guys at Denver Stiffs seem to think the announcement will happen around 6 MT.

    I agree with you, both of those stars would be a huge reach. But... I really think the team is going to claim something stupid about it.

    2018 NBA Post Season

    Labeling anyone that disagrees with you everyone in this thread a fan boy doesn't help your cause. Discrediting greatness because it is greatness and leads to domination is a fallacy. Jordan won 6 titles in the 90's does that discredit the accomplishment because those other teams allowed such domination? Saying Lebron, Brady, Jordan etc are less great because they played competition which allowed for their domination is absurd. No, he didn't. The NBA was more well rounded in the 90s but Jordan essentially played on a super team with 2 of the top 10 players in the league and many other very good players. With that in mind, his path was likely easier due to the quality of his team. He also never played a team in the finals that is even close to as talented as the current Warriors and the Thunder and Spurs teams he played from 2012-14 stack up favorably as well. The way in which talent has accumulated doesn't make it any easier to win series, especially when Lebron has never had a supporting cast like MJ.

    2018 NBA Post Season

    This is bar none the most idiotic string of posts I have ever seen on this site. Congrats Oz I'm genuinely impressed. Lebron has cemented himself as the most singularly dominant player to ever play in the NBA. There is no arguing that, 8 straight finals with maybe 2 teams that had any business being there speaks for itself. The relative strength or weakness of the East makes no difference, MJ for example didn't quite feast on a murderers row during his 6 titles either.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    Yeah to echo what everyone else is saying, there is almost no way that star has anything to do with Palmer Lake. It is not associated with Denver at all and is not a significant landmark in CO. I totally agree with CS85, this rebrand should be making Yellow/Gold the primary with navy and a brighter red acting as supporting colors. As it is I'm really worried it's going to be a drab mess like the 90's uniforms.

    How the hell do tilted stars fit into this identity?!

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    *Raises hand* I care but I'm not a huge fan of this color change. I was born in '94 and all I ever associated with those colors are bad teams with a boring drab color scheme. I think the new logo and word marks are clearly upgrades over last season's which is good. I'm also excited to see how they are planning to incorporate the skyline into an alternate logo and why royal blue is present. I wonder how a sky blue/royal red/yellow look would have been? Think Oilers but replace much of the white with yellow.

    2018 MLS Kits

    If the Sounders suck where do I sign my Rapids up to suck? The way Sounders fans are acting really promotes the fair-weather/plastic stereotype they have. I understand being frustrated by the performance of the team but the Sounders have been in MLS cup back to back seasons, won 3 USOC and have never not made the WC Semis in 10 years of MLS play.

    Uniform/jersey misunderstandings

    The second I read BBTV's post I knew this was coming! You delivered. I totally agree with the admiral, the hammer and sickle (while gorgeous from a design perspective) shouldn't be used by American liberals. I probably lean a little toward socialism but that symbol was the face of far too many atrocities. As for the topic. I often get my Nuggets hat, shirts, and even a water bottle with the crossed pick axes logo mixed up for other things. Most people just have no clue what it represents but in CO I've even had people ask if it was for the CO School of Mines.

    Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    That is what he said. That is why he used parentheses. Thanks for adding value to this discussion on the Jags uniforms. Going back to his original point. I totally agree, if the manufacturer or advertisement is going to be there I would rather it look like it was a designed aspect of the uniform than something that was tacked on afterwards.
