    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    I'm very torn here. I'm a fan of the native american imagery, but that above uniform looks a little too colorado avalanche to me. With the canucks being blue/green it seems like that will not be an option. I personally think that they could go with a green/gold look, California Seals-esque. That would fit well thematically with the Sonics return if/when they return as well. As for names... I'm even more torn, nothing to me stands out as a great choice. Metropolitans is a cool piece of history that should probably be left to history. Sockeyes, steelheads, salmon aren't too bad. Kraken sounds super fun to me but I realize in a couple years it'll probably seem childish and dated. Evergreens/Cascades don't really inspire me at all. I feel like Pilots would have worked pretty nicely, but that the brewers own that history. I hope the ownership group has some creative minds and can come up with a color scheme/name that is fun, local, and don't overthink themselves too much.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I'm not excited to be moving to adidas. The only positive is all the Nike stuff hopefully going on sale. This must be karma for the black jaws of husky stadium. But I can't blame the AD at all. Nike had first right of refusal and wouldn't pay more than what they gave Oregon 3 years ago. $12 million/year is hard to say no to.

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    As someone who lives in Seattle, I would like to add that I don't think there's too many people who would want a team to be named anything but "Seattle". The PNW already sometimes is a void in the conscious of the nation being so far removed from most other teams. But I would guess everyone knows the city of Seattle. Amazon, Starbucks, Microsoft, Sleepless in Seattle. Nationally, Internationally. Seattle is the brand. Emerald City, Cascadia, Washington, or anything else just doesn't pack the same punch.

    So by "City" uniforms, Nike means "gray"

    College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Washington has been promoting a purple-out for the game vs. Cal this weekend. Coach Pete apparently has said they'll wear the regular gold helmets but a change to the purple jersey. I wonder if that means just wearing the purple pants or having a new purple jersey with no black. Fingers crossed.

    College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    Just a side note, they actually had 5 helmets. White, black, chrome, Satin gold, and classic gold. They used the older gold helmets from previous years as their practice helmets, and broke out the "good" ones for games last year. However in the apple cup last year you'll notice they used their practice helmets/older helmets. Besides the finish, the easiest difference between the two is chinstrap/bumper colors. Black on the new satin ones, white on the older practice helmets.

    They do have Standard gold and Chrome gold.

    I don't like it because there is a giant number on the front and back of the jersey, and numbers in the shoulder, so why number on the helmet. Plus it's more of a traditional look, that you're mixing with very modern. And it's asymmetrical which usually don't work as well.

    I'm right there with you, I wasn't a huge fan of the new kits, so I was hoping to find a clearance hoops jerseys. And there is nothing!

    To be fair, I think UW has a better record all-time versus every northwest pac12 school. So by that metric they do own the northwest. Just ignore the last decade.

    I don't mind having black. But I hate the black accents on the purple jerseys and pants. I've been getting unreasonably upset every time I look at them. I guess my only solace is in a couple years they'll get something new.

    Look closely at 71, there's no gold on the 1. Looks like the corner is only on the first digit, so they'll be two sets of numbers, with and without the corner.

    You know how some things grow on you? This is doing the opposite. Every time I see the purple jersey I want top punch whoever designed it in the face. And I see peoples reaction on twitter, but I feel like anything they would come up with people would think it looks cool cause its new. Make the sleeves purple and the reaction wouldn't have changed but the design would be a million times better.

    At least the overpiped mess was purple, gold and white. I dont mind having black uniforms as an alternate. But I hate it when there is black creeping on the purple uni's. The white jersey and pants are perfect. Purple Jersey: Get rid of black shoulder and black shoulder numbers. Purple Pants: switch black stripe/splotch to white or gold. Gold Pants: add a purple stripe/splotch to match the white/purple pants.

    heres the nike press mumbo jumbo http://www.huskiesnewera.com/uniforms The black shoulders is just killing this look for me. This site shows the shoulder numbers on the purple jersey too. Which is black. Awful.
