    MLS Kits 2019

    I just want to point out from a dollars perspective XBOX was paying $4million/year and that included sponsoring the pitch and tarps. And rumors are Zulily will be paying 6-10/ year just for the shirt. So potential for money money from other companies to pay more to sponsor the field and elsewhere. So it may not be a known brand like XBOX but should put more money in the Sounders pockets.

    MLS Kits 2019

    30 year old soccer fans are starting to have kids. Local company. I'll take it over a pyramid scheme any day. I do prefer the old Zulily logo. This type face is a little jarring to say the least. Not very aggressive it athletic looking.

    I'd assume they'll go gold/white/purple. As that's been the default road look most of the season. The only time they tried to go cute and went purple chrome we lost to Cal.

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    I'm not really inspired by any of the names they've registered. Seems like Totems is a favorite given the history. Sockeyes is growing on me but seems more minor league. I love Kracken but that's definitely minor league and in general I don't like singular names. Emeralds.... A color, doesn't inspire me. Honestly my favorite is Thunderbirds but that doesn't seem likely. Pilot's I'm a fan of too but no go with the Brewers I'm sure. I was just browsing through some local high school nicknames to get a feel for good local ideas and here's some I thought were decent. Stags Triton's Navigator's Pioneer's Lumberjack's High climber's I guess as long as there's a good color and logo the name won't matter too much. Most people I know prefer to keep with the Seahawks/mariners/Sounders theme of blue and greenish. I think a green and yellow to he similar to the Sonic's would be fitting. A red, black, turquoise native feel would be fitting too if done properly.

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    Interesting that the new away kit looks to match the current home/away. So when they get a new home kit it most likely won't match. But then again in the 2015 cup they had the weird white/black kit that didn't go with the blue gradient kit.

    Are people thinking the current US kit is what will be used for the woman's world cup? I know last world cup the woman's team got a special kit just for the world cup (black and neon monstrosity)

    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.

    College Football 2014 Season

    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!
