    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 6

    I think that Jags combo looks great from any angle where you can clearly see the teal on the jersey. When you can't see it, the pants look like they don't belong at all. As for the Ravens in purple pants, I'm having a hard time liking it even though it's my ideal Ravens road look. While the purple pants avoid the yoga pants look and reiterate that purple is the primary color, that franchise has spent years building a black-on-the-road brand that I can't get out of my head. Even though the black pants are objectively a bad look, I can't help but like it.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    I like the design and color scheme, but the balance feels off. Something about this rendering reminds me of the 2000s Blue Jays branding. It's just too dark. Hopefully the final branding won't focus as heavily on black as the logo does.
  3. I searched through threads for the past year and couldn't find anything like this, so I figured I would post it. The idea behind this thread is to post interesting facts or statistics that a lot of people don't know. It'll essentially be the answers to trivia questions. I've got two interesting ones to start this thread off. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to kick an extra point from the 15-yard line. Tom Brady has played two games at University of Phoenix Stadium, but he has never played the Cardinals there. The Pats have played two Super Bowls there, but only played the Cardinals at home since the stadium was built.

    MLB changes 2018?

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Who approved this? Both teams are wearing light helmets, light jerseys, and blue pants. I genuinely don't think there's enough clash here, and in situations like this some ruling body (either the NCAA or ACC) should be setting some kind of regulations to make sure there is enough contrast between the two teams.

    Why are the Red Sox wearing red again? Only the white and grey jerseys should be seen in the postseason.

    This isn't directly related to uniforms, but the Patriots are doing a behind-the-scenes series with their equipment staff some of you may be interested in.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - 2018 NFL Week Four

    I agree with Saints/Giants, Browns/Raiders, and Vikings/Rams being on the best list. However, I'm not especially a fan of Jets/Jags and Texans/Colts. My problem with the Jets/Jags game is that it just looks so boring. The Jaguars uniforms lack any kind of defining characteristic, and the Jets green looked washed out in the bright sunlight. I'd argue this was the most neutral game this week. For Texans/Colts, the yoga pants from Houston preclude this from making my list. That uniform becomes unbalanced with blue socks and pants, and while the Colts blue jerseys look brilliant in the sunlight, this is just enough to keep the game off my list. I think you missed two games that should've taken their spots. 49ers at Chargers The 49ers have classic uniforms that look especially great when wearing their red jerseys. The Chargers wore their best white uniforms. To me, this is easily above both the Jets/Jags and Texans/Colts games. I'd even put it ahead of Vikings/Rams and Browns/Raiders. Chiefs at Broncos The Broncos brought out the all-blue alternates for just the right occasion. When the Chiefs go R/W/R against the Broncos B/O/W, the combination of orange and red on the field looks garish to me. Instead, this uniform matchup does a great job at contrasting the teams' colors in a striking way. I know many aren't a fan of the Broncos uniforms, but I've always enjoyed their home combinations. The Chiefs always look good.
  9. I surprisingly don't hate the Lions color rush uniforms. Why they're wearing them against Dallas, though, I don't understand. Both helmets are silver, both pants are basically silver/grey, and then the Lions jersey is grey too. That's just way too much of one color in a game.
  10. All the Bills need to do with their socks is drop the blue top on the road. The stripes are fine.
  11. I don't know if this has been posted anywhere yet, but the Pats are wearing color rush for the Thursday night game against the Colts in week 5 and against the Packers on SNF in week 9.
  12. Games have to flexed almost two full weeks in advance, so both teams would have adequate notice. It presumably wouldn't cause any problems.
  13. I want to like this Jaguars combination, but the color balance is so off. The helmet is almost entirely black, the jerseys are white and black, and then the pants are entirely teal. There's no cohesion between the elements of the uniform. It looks like the Jaguars forgot their pants at home and had to borrow a pair from another team. The pants badly need a stripe of some kind, and the jerseys need some teal somewhere.
  14. I didn't think I would, but I actually like these Browns color rush uniforms.
  15. Some thoughts on the early games: Panthers-Falcons is a very nice looking game. The Falcons home uniforms are a really nice combination of colors, and I really like the Panthers wearing black socks on the road. It helps their color balance a lot. I also really like the lighting in Atlanta's new stadium. The Jets look good. The Dolphins really need some striped white socks to wear on the road, because the white-white-aqua-aqua is so unbalanced. The Packers home uniforms always look amazing in day games. Like the Dolphins, the Vikings are a striped pair of white socks away from a perfect road uniform. Chiefs-Steelers is amazing. Lots of color, and both teams are well balanced. Browns-Saints takes the crown for worst looking early game. At least the Browns finally found a pair of contrasting socks. The Saints should completely ditch the black pants. I'm amazed by how much Nike's fabrics improved the Eagles' midnight green. I used to be a proponent of them switching back to kelly green, but now I think they should continue to own the midnight green. The Bucs look decent. Its not a great uniform, but they picked a non-offensive combo. While I love the Redskins in white pants, I don't think today was the day to break them out. With the Colts in all white, Washington could've added some color to the game with the yellow pants. Not a bad looking game though. The Colts single-striped helmet still irks me. Chargers-Bills is boring all around. Two decent uniforms, not a lot of color. The Titans new uniforms are bad. The Texans look good as always.

    Mock Patriots Commercials

    I'm not sure if this is really the right content for this forum, but as a longtime member I thought it would be worth sharing here. I'm currently a junior in college, and as a film minor, executive in my school's video production club, and diehard Patriots fan, I've taken on a fun new project for this year. I decided to create 30-second long ads for each Patriots game this season to be released in the week prior to the game. Making these videos involves video editing, audio editing, photo editing, and animation. Hopefully you all enjoy, and I'd appreciate some feedback as I continue to fine tune these videos throughout the season.

    I believe those pants show up in Madden too. IIRC, they're labelled as alternate road pants.

    Man, those Jags helmets are sharp. They nailed that finish, and it looks great in that stadium.

    Nike made their numbers so big they had to alter their own template just to make them fit. Who thought that was a good idea?

    I'm a fan. It looks surprisingly good.

    So I guess we're bringing the "practice jersey" discussion over from the NFL thread? ? On the Notre Dame uniforms: michaelscottno.gif

    From my perspective, the phrase "practice uniforms" doesn't just refer to the simplicity of the uniforms. It's a relative term comparing the new uniforms to the old ones. Like how practice jerseys are stripped down versions of a team's primary jerseys, the new Jacksonville uniforms seem like simplified versions of the previous ones. In both cases, colors other than the primary are removed, numbers are without strokes, and stripes and patches are at a minimum. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Simple designs can be good, even great, but the context of the team matters. Jacksonville has a unique and modern color scheme, giving them potential for a striking look. These uniforms are a complete miss to me because they fall so far short of what could have been. I think j'villejags absolutely nailed the combination between traditional and modern, fully fleshing out every color and creating a distinct brand identity.
