    If the Hickory uniforms were only for one night, it'd be much less of an issue. I feel the same way with the city jerseys. Why do they need to be a regular part of the rotation?

    I love pizza so I'd absolutely take recommendations! I have now marked Joe & Pat's in my Google maps. Dunno when I'll get out there but hopefully I get a chance soon. Places I can recall going to in New York, in case any of these are spots of your: Manhattan -Lombardi's -Angelo's -Luzzo's (favorite coal oven I've tried so far) -John's of Times Square -Artichoke -Two Boots -NY Pizza Supreme -Famous Amadeus -Lunetta Brooklyn -Grimaldi's -Di Fara -Daddy Greens -Saraghina +a dozen-plus dollar joints I've only been near the ferry in Staten Island and I don't think I've had a meal in the Bronx outside of Yankee Stadium. I'm sure I've had some pizza in Queens that I'm not recalling as well. Also, and this will come as sacrilege, but while I know there is a difference in quality and obviously prefer a more legitimate slice, I have a tough time finding inedible pizza. I will eat Domino's or Little Caesar's without complaint honestly. But there's a difference between eating because it's cheap and plentiful and eating because you want to have a knockout meal. And for the record, it's highly unlikely that I'd find something that truly knocks off my favorite slice, BUT I would not be the least bit surprised to try one of your places and be blown away. It's just hard to beat a meal you have personal sentiment attached to. It's like tasting home. PS: I don't know :censored: about hockey but sorry to sidetrack the convo.

    There is a distinction between "having standards"/preferring different qualities of pizza and simply :censored:ting on pizza you think is inferior. I've had high quality midwest pizza and I've had mediocre pizza in New York, sweeping statements are pointless. In fact, my favorite pizza is still from my hometown in Akron even though I live in New York. Because, much like jerseys, it's still subjective. Not everyone likes the Blackhawks jerseys, even if it's the popular choice. Hell, there's a difference between an authentic Blackhawks jersey and a jersey from Aliexpress too. The thing is, I think it's fine for you to have a strong opinion on pizza, I just feel like a lot of people treat their food opinions as if they are facts when in reality you're just not enjoying something other people like. So the regionalism/smugness is just aggravating.

    These kinds of responses are the worst in these discussions. People that advocate that you can only get good pizza from one town/area/whatever don't truly love pizza, they love being smug. Pizza is delicious. Celebrate it, stop being a negative fool when deep dish and thin crust and everything in between is a blessing.

    Notes above. I'm on board with a lot of your opinion actually.

    Plenty of the t-shirt deigns looked good but would've been better without the sleeves. Utah for example would lose nothing by going to the traditional cut... I'm not gonna start a debate over personal taste with that Jazz jersey, but IMO it'd be just as good if not better without the sleeves. Same with the Nets. Between the ads and Nike's bad designs, I'd take us back to the t-shirt era at this point.

    Quite a few of these are horrid and when you put them together it looks like a fashion jersey site. Nike has been a disaster for the NBA so far IMO. As a Cavs fan I don't mind having a "The Land" jersey at all. The nickname became popular during our championship run and I like it. The issue is that we are now introducing grey to our overflowing color pallet with a jersey that has no continuity to the rest of our set (AND FEATURES NO WINE FOR :censored:S SAKE). But, like the rest of our current duds, isn't an ugly jersey. There are a few that look pretty good but that's about it... Will these things be a regular part of a team's rotation or can they use them all over a single weekend like the MLB Player's Weekend or some :censored: so we can get it out of the way?

    The black TV numbers don't look bad, but I prefer if they were white/scarlet, like Archie wore.
  10. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Interesting. Color-wise I'm sure I'll get used to it, since the NBA was already so alt-heavy that classic home v road matchups were not that standard anyway. But it does bother me to lose the identity of home v road in terms of team name versus city name on the jersey. Oh well, it's not as bad as most of Nike's designs or ads on jerseys so gotta pick my battles I guess.
  11. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I've noticed that the Cavs have already had a home game in wine and a road game in white. Will it become the new norm that teams don't stick to home/road jerseys now that they have stupid names? I'd MUCH prefer color v color rather than seeing the wrong team in white.
  12. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    The Buckeyes need to stick to a proper jersey against Michigan. At least keep the friggin' helmets... IT'S THE GAME. In fact, what I've always wanted is a scarlet versus blue game... Someday... These jerseys might not suck, we'll see. Definitely a downgrade from the black alt and even moreso from their regular look or their throwbacks that should be full time.
  13. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Like the regular white stickers or just replace the scarlet with green on black? Cause I actually think it looks really cool as is, but if it were green on black that could be cool too.

    The blackout jerseys, while similarly unnecessary, were way cooler than this :censored:.

    Please God don't let this happen, but the best move IMO would be to have them all fitted for thumbs.
