  1. 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:.
  3. CCSLC Championship Ring Thread

    Please God don't let this happen, but the best move IMO would be to have them all fitted for thumbs.
  4. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Those Warriors warm-ups are actually not as loud as the Opener warmups the Cavs wore last year, which are gorgeous:

    The Cubs example is kind of funny though since that town has 2 baseball teams.
  6. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Is it just me or are there more guys wearing white tights this season? Is that a Nike thing? In the past Cavs players would wear black tights with their white home jerseys. But now they pair it with white and create a leotard-esque effect. Just saw a Celtics highlight where they wore white tights under their green jerseys as well.
  7. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Agreed. And I don't mind having one alternate a year (need to go with the old stripes full time and drop our primaries) as long as stop doing weird :censored: at the Michigan game. That game is sacred and should not be violated with alternate :censored:ty uniforms or dumbass non-matching helmets.

    Tree bark sublimation is really stupid. Luckily nothing looks as stupid as those Gator uniforms. Good God.
  9. Unpopular Opinions

    I value geographic loyalty over having spent some time arbitrarily rooting for some other team. If you rooted for a team because you had no local choice, it's fair for you to switch you primary fanhood to a new, local team. If you feel you really invested in a franchise and feel a part of that fanhood, feel free to stick with the team you already had, but that kinda thing doesn't work for me. I'm not a big hockey guy but if Cleveland got a team (again heh) I'd swap from Columbus immediately. But I'm not really invested in any sports that don't have teams in Cleveland so it's hard to really match up the situation. I will admit that it took me a long time to start valuing identities even if I hated the team/city.

    I like that. Especially if a team doesn't have a ring yet, makes sense to have a banner to list all the years you reached a certain milestone, like division titles.
  12. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    In game they look pretty good because it's a fairly unoffensive and safe design. I have lots of problems with their set but it certainly won't be an eyesore.
  13. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    A lot of great mentions in here but I personally find the monster to be overrated. While it's iconic and cool in Boston, it also has a very old and impractical feel to it compared to more modern designs. My homer pick for left field would be Progressive/Jacob's. You have the home run porch, the 19-foot wall, a larger bleacher section, the league's biggest scoreboard, and JOHN ADAMS. Along with Heritage Park, the flags, and open bullpens in center, it's a good look. Unfortunately they whiffed on the boxes above right field. But part of the awesomeness of Rajai's homer last year was it landing on the Home Run Porch. I do wish they'd switch back to flying a ridiculously huge American flag though: vs (:18 second mark)
  14. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Jags look great aside from their helmet. I love the shield logo too. If we're including satin helmets when discussing the matte trend (which we should because it's still a departure from the shiny gloss look), the Browns would be included as well. It's maybe the one thing they didn't massively up on the new set. And using a picture of a dirty matte batting helmet is really silly when you consider how awful dirty helmets USED to look, too.
  15. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    Agreed with the other posters than the white football works best. Could easily be added as a patch on the jersey or pants without issue if they wanted to. I'm curious if it might look better with a brown C and swapped stripe colors, which would match the old pants going OBO. And maybe instead of recycling the Indians block C, using the previous, beautiful block font, like below. The previous set of logos and uniforms with that added as a primary would be perfect IMO. The updates to the colors/helmes are fine.
