  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    That's what happens when you start chasing sales trends rather than focusing on building your brand. That switch to blue has done far more damage to the Jazz than I think anyone in 2004 anticipated.
  2. 2018 MLS Kits

    Back when the team was founded, you could buy merchandise that featured purple (even kits), near-navy blue, or true cobalt blue. I think there was a terrible amount of confusion around what this team was supposed to look like at the outset. Eventually it was apparently settled that they would wear the dark blue but call it cobalt. I know it's shocking that a team called Real Salt Lake would have a confused identity. This stupid franchise.

    It's odd. Last season and this one would have been the ideal time to trot these out to celebrate 20 years of getting Jordan'd. I wonder if there is some trepidation surrounding this look from within the organization. I mean, it's not like we've done much since we took off the purple.

    If Nike felt the need to rep southern Utah with a uni, it' s a real missed opportunity for them to do the yellow uni instead of a a throwback mountain purple to rep northern Utah. It could have been a cool juxtaposition of NBA eras, regional topography, and geology. For what it's worth, this is the superior alt. WE GROW FURTHER FROM GOD EACH DAY

    It's funny/horrible that among the seven or eight colors on the Jazztros uni that, somehow, purple couldn't make the cut

    I did miss that. Thanks! That's the last time I go on vacation!!
  8. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Maybe I missed it, but are the Lakers getting a sky blue uni? I'm watching a Nike video on New York Times on my phone and I think that's what I just saw.

    Maybe you'll get lucky and we'll host a summer tournament with the Netherlands, Wales, and Chile.
  10. Little Caesars new logo

  11. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I could get behind a purple jersey with gold note and numbers. But I've ranted enough about purple in the past. I need to move on.

    If the Jazz absolutely had to use that design, it should have been a green jersey, with a white note, and yellow number. Truly awful stuff there.
  13. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    New Utes helmet this week colors the block U with a Ute tribal design
  14. NBA Changes 2017-18

    That would be infinitely better than reality... "[Haslem] said research has shown that the uniform color that young people buy most right now is a light blue, followed by navy." To the current scheme: "The NBA used national focus groups — though none in Utah — to test the marketability of the colors and logo. It didn't hurt that the Jazz's green throwback jerseys during the Hardwood Classics program last season were wildly popular." I also wouldn't doubt that Larry Miller's relationship with BYU also influenced the holdover of navy.

    Can't wait to see how the yellow and orange uni's will round out this set!!! Just kidding! Kill me.
  16. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The Jazz, like every team, are dollar driven. The switch over to blue only happened because the team management received a report saying that blue sells better than purple. The note came back because it sold better than the mountains for a couple of consecutive seasons. We can only hope that the team sold enough purple shirts during the '97 team anniversary game this year to open their minds....
  17. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    The jersey is fine. A lateral move. The pants are a god-damned embarrassment.
  18. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Sponsor-less kits are the :censored:.<--How does that overwhelmingly positive word get censored? I mean, really.
  19. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Now they just need to fix the colors...and win a championship...cough
  20. Logo dust up in Salt Lake, as the local private college changes its logo based on votes from...high school students. Near as I can tell, alumni hate both logos... From this to The new W logo is said to be based on the windows of the campus' first building; conveniently rendered in their original logo. It also appears that the new logo is one of the "skins" type of logos like TBS and Taco Bell are now using.
  21. And just like that Utah hires EWU's Troy Taylor to replace Roderick and Erickson as OC.
