  1. @upperV03 did you really need one post for that? Maybe try to private message your thoughts next time instead of cluttering up the thread.
  2. MLB Changes 2017

    Both versions of the Diamondbacks current set make no sense to me. The colors don't go together at all. The logos are awful. The dark grey is nasty. Just a really bad look all around.
  3. Unpopular Opinions

    I agree with everyone that says the gold pants look good. I still think they should drop them. The Redskins introduced uniforms in 1970 that are very similar to the home uniform now in terms of color Shades, helmet logo, striping waist down. In 1978, they dropped gold pants and didn’t wear them again regularly till 2010. Time for a new cycle! 2010-2017 gold pants, and a new era of just burgundy and white (plus three more Super Bowls?) for 30 years.
  4. Unpopular Opinions

    It's time. The Redskins should drop the gold pants, just like they did in the 1970s.
  5. infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL Week 4

    The Lions blue socks actually kill that uniform. Throws the color balance completely off. The blue is too something to be used that much unobstructed. They need silver or white striped socks to break up the kind of blaring amount of color.
  6. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The Timberwolves uniforms are staggeringly bad. I don't have a single good thing to say about them. Everything is terrible. The color choices, the use of "WOLVES," the sailor striping, the awkward logo placement, the choice of sponsor, the font. Good lord
  7. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    Right I completely agree it wouldn't be a spectacular, close up view, but it would still be very nice. Going forward, I think Washington ought to build stadium on the former RFK site for football that could operate as a sort of "national stadium."
  8. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    Right, but there's nothing obstructing the view of the Capitol along East Capitol St. This is a view of RFK along East Capitol St. from the Capitol dome.
  9. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    You sure about that? With a totally unobstructed view, I think you could definitely see the Capitol and monument. Perhaps not from home plate, but from a not-too-high up spot they'd be very visible. This is a better shot of the area though, if only for the reason I can make out my house in this angle!
  10. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    If RFK was rebuilt as a new, beautiful, and purely baseball park for the Nationals, this would have been a very nice outfield view:
  11. VA Tech's new academic logo.

    I like this. It's a nice distinction between the athletic and academic while unifying the brand.
  12. This one is pretty incredible. It's so odd how dramatically the perception surrounding the Seahawks shifted in 2012. Russel Wilson, the face of the Nike takeover, etc. I feel like it started with the "beastquake" but there's something so "Every team in the NFC West finishes 8-8" about this photo that just does not match "Richard Sherman" at all.
  13. Hell no to all-burgundy! The one time I'll get superstitious about a uniform. I'll tell a little story: When I was in seventh grade, going to Redskins game was a constant every fall. It was the Monday night before the 2008 election of Barack Obama, and the Redskins were 6-2 and Clinton Portis was a legit MVP candidate (and Madden cover candidate, just as important to me back then). You could say it was a memorable time! I remember distinctly driving to the car and talking way too much with my dad about uniforms. I talked over and over about it. I even floated the idea that they might do something different because it's Monday night and they're playing so well. We walked out into the stadium, dad rolled his eyes, and I just couldn't have been more excited to see the all-burgundy uniforms they broke out that night. It was so exciting. Backup QB Byron Leftwich and the Steelers beat the Redskins 23-6. The Redskins finished the season 2-6, 8-8 overall, and missed the playoffs. No thanks to that look.
  14. They have them both. This image is from this summer. Use both burgundy and white pants in training camp. Without making any uniform or dare I say team name changes (which I think they should...), I think the ideal Washington uniform lineup would be burgundy/gold for primetime home games, burgundy/white for afternoon home games, and white/burgundy for road games. Throw in the all white once a year too. It looked good during Gibbs 2.0.
