    NFL 2018 changes

    I'd really appreciate the Ravens' purple pants more if they had thin gold stripes right in between where the white stripe meets the black stripe. That way, the gold on the helmet & jerseys have a matching element with the pants. The pattern should be B/G/W/G/B.
  2. Wanted to hear your thoughts about conference realignment talks popping up again. Rumor has it, the Big Ten is targeting Oklahoma and Texas by the 2024-25 season, per a report on 24/7 Sports. Link: Big Ten Targeting OU and Texas

    2020 Final Four Logo

    Include the NBA also.
  4. Just to share my thoughts on the unveil of each team's uniform: Arizona Hotshots: I really love how this trio of yellow, green and orange just work well and compliment each other. Also have to commend the incorporation of the "AZ" monogram, found in their logo, inside the helmet stripe. Overall, a solid package, between the logo, colors, and uniform. Atlanta Legends: The beautiful paring of purple and gold is hard to fumble, and it doesn't in this case either. Only gripe would be the "ATL" found vertically on either side of the jersey. Tsk tsk. It would be much better if inserted at the top of the purple pants stripe. Birmingham Iron: Probably the biggest miss of the 8 teams. There's just this lack of a unique identity. Their uniforms could stand a few tweaks, which could result in a vast improvement. Memphis Express: Despite the lack of the use of white, they made good decisions on the particular shades of red and blue used. Their vibrant enough to stand next to each other without bleeding into one another (like the Arizona Wildcats' monstrosities). Also, nice to see they were able to get the helmet decal to wraparound, because who doesn't enjoy those? Orlando Apollos: Easily my favorite identity of the league. Love the logo and I do like its application on the helmet, but really interested in seeing side views to be able to clearly see the striping used on the jersey and pants; really want to know if there's a balance, if any, between the jersey yoke and the stripes. Salt Lake Stallions: Paring silver with double blue isn't really working here. Mainly due to the lighter shade touching the silver; it only works if you use the darker blue to separate the lighter shade or dropping that shade altogether. A few tweaks to this set could take them from miss to hit. San Antonio Commanders: Seeing as they wrapped their logo of the Alamo around the helmet (which I think is unique), I think they could have left their primary logo off the side. Would've been a decent opportunity to introduce some sort of secondary logo. The double red plays off each other and the silver much better than Salt Lake and their scheme. The only thing I could say is I would've omitted the side striping on the jersey. San Diego Fleet: The colors work well together and using the chevron as the design focus makes sense for an identity based upon a carrier. I wonder if they could have made stencil-type numerals work with this set. Things to take note of as a collective league: Disappointed that half the league (Arizona, Atlanta, San Antonio, and San Diego) went with half logo/half numerals on the helmet. The asymmetric trend is one I detest on any level of football. Also would have like to have seen more variation amongst the uniforms. I see a lot of sleeve cap designs on the jerseys and angular striping on the pants. There's only eight teams, meaning that they each could have had truly unique designs and elements.

    Ducks should've had green be their accent color, as opposed to black. Especially since Oregon State is rolling in the all-black attire.

    The only instance would be with OKC's new City set. But they've never worn orange accessories with their home uniform until now (which looked weird, BTW).

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    The Pacers already beat everyone else; don't forget how they continuously wear those two-toned, "Hoosiers" Hickory uniforms.

    OKC needs to do a logo & uniform set rebrand based upon these City uniforms, immediately.

    The Mavericks are better off doing something like a fauxback for their City uniform. The last two (This season's and last season) have been horrendous.

    T-Wolves Throwback to 90s, Unveil Classic Edition Uniform

    Boy, I've always despised the numeral font on these, but I've always loved the trees inside the collar/cuff trim, as well as the trees in the old court apron.

    Finally, a set with jersey AND pants striping. The striping for Utah State appears to be a pattern that would be relative to natives that belonged in the Utah area. Can't say for certain who they may be, but it's clear that it's the inspiration.

    Favorite jersey number?

    I'll go ahead and mention the number 29 for me.

    Satin orange helmet is a definite improvement over the matte orange for Bowling Green.

    Hornets Go Full Retro, Unveil Throwback Court

    Words can't be accurate enough for the joy I have, knowing that Charlotte is going to throwback to this particular court......
