  1. 2018 MLS Kits

    I understand the desire to bring that design back. I loved that wing jersey, too. But, on a practical level, would it even work with the big Target logo in the center? I can't see it working without severely minimizing the sponsor logo, which the club would never do.
  2. I don't have anything to add to this, but because Ice_Cap's post is such a clean, succinct and accurate argument on this subject that it's almost certain to be ignored by the "What about the Fighting Irish?" crowd, I felt it was worth reposting.
  3. This is pretty common. The University of North Dakota have done the same thing with the Fighting Sioux logo and moniker as a means of avoiding a steady flow of non-licensed merchandise from overtaking its new brand. The university launched a specialty, throwback-focused apparel brand to make use of the logo, though its done a good job of keeping its use to a minimum.

    I haven't been able to stop laughing at this.
  5. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    It's hard to not see a dragon in some of those early Broncos sketches.
  6. MLB changes 2018?

    Baylor was involved in three World Series in a row with three different teams ('86-88: Red Sox, Twins, A's) and not one of them was the Angels. Despite that, I, too, view him as an Angel primarily.
  7. The XFL may be making a comeback

    I'm fairly certain URFL would be pronounced "awful."
  8. Minnesota Timberwolves

    I share your dislike of the KG-era unis, but not because of its lack of green. I just thought they were plain ugly. Like the KG-era unis, I can't get over the disproportionate color balance in these uniforms. They overcompensate for the near-absence of green in the primary two sets by tossing out that garish neon garbage. The latest all gray uniform isn't terrible, but it doesn't exactly elevate an otherwise mediocre set.

    I love the Wolves, so it pains me to say that this has been one of the most lackluster brand updates I've ever seen.

    Looks like the Timbers brass have chosen Cosmos skipper Gio Savarese as their new head coach. The reaction has been mostly positive so far, but i don’t know as much about the NASL. https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2017/12/12/report-portland-timbers-eyeing-giovanni-savarese-head-coaching-job Any my thoughts on this Gothamite?
  12. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    I'm envisioning one of two scenarios vis-a-vis color choice: Seattle follows the Pittsburgh route and has all its pro teams share the same color scheme with some variant of blue and green. It's easy to do this without confusing the color scheme with the Canucks. The easiest route is to follow the Seahawks color scheme of Navy and Rave Green. This becomes more complicated, though, should Seattle ever land another NBA team. Which leads me to the next possibility ... The club goes the green-and-yellow route, speculating that it will one day share a building with the Sonics, creating chromatic solidarity with a future co-tenant.
  13. I hate the combo of pinstripes and piping. It’s garish. But I love that jersey on the right, which pays homage to those classic Braves pullovers from the ‘70s. That said, theres just no way to see Stripers and not read it as “Strippers.”
  14. Portland's got great coffee, but I wouldn't say it's really what we're known for. Seattle kind of owns that designation, as far as I'm concerned. We've got a stronger tie to craft beer, which is why our local minor league club is called the Hops. I've no doubt told this story before, but few years ago, when the Portland Beavers were looking for a new home, one of the potential landing spots was the suburb of Milwaukie. My hope was they'd move there and become the Milwaukie MicroBrewers.

    Old guy speaking here, but is the early '00s now considered "old school?" Asking so I can brace myself for the resulting mental trauma.
