    I am of the opinion that every single nuggets uniform has been very bad.

    Your least favorite team color combination.

    Louder for the people in the back
  8. Yeah, I'm sitting in the Capital One Arena, an avid CCSLCer, cheering on the Caps, and it dawns on me...

    Rotten Tomatoes New Logo & Site

    If I try too hard to think about why they are named "Rotten Tomatoes" my head starts to hurt. You throw rotten tomatoes at someone as a way of showing you didn't like their performance right? But what about ripe tomatoes? I feel like you could also throw a nice new tomato at someone. But if a movie is "certified fresh" it's like they're saying the movie is a really good tomato and therefore not good for heckling.

    Report: Nike to Take Over MLB Uniforms in 2020

    You have absolutely no idea how any of this works. You're so off-base its embarrassing. Nothing in this post makes any sense whatsoever. ... Volt is yellow, not green.

    Exactly!! Good lord it is going to be *fine.* The Diamondbacks “futuristic maintenance men working a trash truck in space” uniforms (thanks Rob Lowe) already exists. Blame the teams, not Nike

    Thank you! I actually figured it out just about a day ago. Had no idea there were websites that helped you find fonts.

    NFL 2018 changes

    I really resent this line of thinking. This guy keeps sharing photos of a Jets uniform that had a better green, better logo, and is super clean and traditional. He’s an individual with individual tastes. Treating him like he’s exactly the same as all other players puts a bad taste in my mouth.

    MLB changes 2018?

    Gotcha on the outfield. I hadn't thought about that. The red is emphasized but I don't think it qualifies as Leonsis co-branding. After all, in 2005 the Capitals and Wizards still looked like this. Even today, the Nats feel like red/white team as opposed to a red/white/blue team (Caps too). To me, they feel different. Also, the exterior does give off that "monumental vibe" that, as you mentioned, the Metro also takes a stab at (in a very different way). Had never thought about the interior though. Having gone to RFK games during the first couple of years, it's hard for me to be sympathetic to... anything about that park. But I see what you mean.

    I don’t get the last part, can you explain lol i like the red and white. DC flag colors.

    MLB changes 2018?

    I think ultimately I agree. You say it best here. “DC” is too perfect as an interlock. Also gives the team a bit more local je ne sais quoi. It’ll never happen now though. Spend one day at Nats Park and it becomes clear it’s literally impossible

    Lost Sports Logos?

    If the 90s was a “more is more” era in both sports design and fashion, what would you say the contemporary version of that is?

    Either that or he’s saying that he’s proud of the growth and improvement his firm has had in the last 15 years?

    Lost Sports Logos?

    My soon-to-be alma mater, Colgate, has a pretty interesting "lost logo" situation. Our current athletic branding is just awful in my opinion. Way too many outlines. Is the mascot a pirate? A zombie? Paul Revere? Nobody knows. He's got red eyes and grey skin. Good news is most students and teams just stick to basics which work really well for a small liberal arts university with a very traditionally collegiate aesthetic. Anyway, I asked our now-outgoing AD about the origin of the athletic branding a couple years ago, and she told me there there was this whole design put together that was scrapped just before unveil in the early 2000s. I emailed the guy who she said designed it, and here's what he had to say: "I can’t recall the exact date, but we were hired by Colgate to a comprehensive redesign of their athletic identity in the early 2000’s. At that time Mark Murphy was the Athletic Director (former Washington Redskin and current president of the Green Bay Packers). As we were near completion Mark moved on to become Athletic Director at Northwestern and the sudden change in leadership caused our project to meet an untimely demise. The project was essentially “in the can", so yes, there is a complete Colgate athletic identity that never saw the light of day. It’s a shame, because I thought it was pretty good, not something that we would do today, but good for the era in which it was created." All of this is especially interesting in light of the fact that Colgate transitioned from being known as the "Red Raiders" to the "Raiders" and lost all Native American imagery in about 2002. You could probably count most of the old logos from the "Red Raider" era as lost anyway. They're very hard to find. This torch logo is definitely not from the current brand, which while terrible is very consistent in its colors and marks. But the "flames" match somewhat to the current athletic torch. The "lost identity" guy said if I was ever driving through the area to come by and check them out in person. I think I'll have to sometime.
