    Then what is that color?

    Slight downgrade on the logo. The switch to navy is laughably stupid though. We need less red and blue teams but we especially need less red and navy teams. I know they are one of a thousand patriotically themed teams in this country, but just go back to the light blue and maroon so we have some unique looks in this league!

    Yes, that's what I referring to, that when the new set came out reactions were overwhelmingly positive. But people do like the old looks and logo. Personally, I'm fine with the clean modern look they have and while their current logo isn't ideal, I was never a fan of the helmet dolphin. The Steelers and Blackhawks are both exceptions to the general rule of thumb and they more easily get away with it because of their history. If they made a logo with a dolphin in the sunset and needed to add extra colors, that'd also be different from simply using an accent that works as part of the color scheme without including it in the uniform. So basically, it doesn't have to be a problem but in this instance it is.

    Very interesting as most people are gaga for the latest set. I think it looks really good aside from the fact that they now have a navy accent in their logo that isn't present in the rest of their identity.
  5. Wow this is amazing to me because I like both of those identities a lot! The Orioles, especially at home and especially with their white-paneled cap, look gorgeous to me. The cartoon bird has grown on me and at this point I think I prefer it to the real bird. VCU has a generic look for their uniforms, but I like the horn on the V and can at least live with white letters.
  6. The answer to your question? Fantasize about fixing it! Or looking fondly on past looks that were better. Browns- It's more of not wanting to support the ownership that I don't buy gear, but if I were to get a jersey I'd just go throwback. Cavs- The 03-10 jerseys were the best but I do love the classic wine and gold color scheme (not so much the overused navy/black), so I just try to find gear thats suits my tastes. For instance, I wear a hat similar to this: Not really representative of the current identity, but clearly a Cavs hat that shows the direction I wish they'd go with their look. Indians- Hard to say now. I wear the navy Block C hat, but for personal opinion reasons I avoid getting any new gear with Indians or certainly Wahoo on it. Ohio State- Overall I like our identity but would make some tweaks to make it perfect. I usually prefer things that put more of an emphasis on gray rather than treating black as our secondary color. In fact, I wish we'd stop using the red/white/black Block O and involve gray in the identity before black in every single instance. However, I do wear an old school Woody hat and love it . If I rooted for a team which had no redeemable branding qualities? I guess I'd... just wear my shirt that says "SPORTS" on it.

    I agree that the Bills currently look better. In terms of gimmick, I simply mean the fact that we don't see this combo often. If the Dolphins wore that look all the time against the Bills normal look, it's harder to say whether it would top the rankings, but maybe that's just an assumption on my part. But it's obviously just how you feel about it at the end of the week.
  8. I share your sentiments exactly, although I can understand the issues with the current set and yearning for a fairly logical previous set.

    I understand the throwback gimmick helped it rise to the top, but I would still argue the Chiefs-Raiders were the best looking match up, especially when you account for how their colors play off each other. The Browns don't look that bad in orange pants with white jerseys, but obviously the overall uniform has a lot of issues and the Texans going all navy looks horrid. The Texans have an overrated look in general, aside from an awesome logo.
  10. Most human mascot logos suck, or at the very least look dated as all hell. Bucco and Pat are primary offenders.

    IMO these are the accurate borders of the midwest. Chicago is the midwest, the midwest has cities. Heartland is more debatable/subjective to my understanding.

    I like the Vikings unique font (though it could have some issues fixed) and don't need to see them go back to a plain block. They look so good now, no need to mess with it IMO.

    Even though I wish they'd just go back to what they had, if the Browns had done this on their initial unveiling, I wouldn't be clamoring for a new look. They can still :censored: it up with various color combos/socks but that jersey looks GREAT (TV number aside).

    Rust Belt extends into New York, Great Lakes is basically the northwest territory, and the Rockies are not midwest geographically or culturally (not to assume your implications or knowledge, just stating things). Western PA fits culturally with a lot of the midwest, but PA in general is NOT midwest. I consider Ohio thru the Great Plains to be midwest. You could also say the Heartland I suppose. The point is, most of us say "pop."

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    IMO, the navy was the best designed jersey of the set, though the white and wine were both gorgeous in their own right. The navy alt from that era might be my favorite all time NBA jersey. Ranking it that low is lame especially with those crappy Prince and The North jerseys ahead of it. Also: "There’s so much to love about this jersey. The sharp neckline, the multi-colored blocks that border the entire jersey and that rich shade of navy blue that’s broken up by the white lettering and the gold trim “Cavaliers” in the middle. " Dude couldn't look at the picture and see it says "Cleveland?"
