  1. I truly have loved every moment of this concept series. You have a great eye, and you really are grasping the possibilities of the alternate realities. I absolutely loved the BiG logo being reimagined for the Milwaukee Braves. Genius!! Now, as a Portland sports history enthusiast, I'm excited to see what happens in your timelines. Seeing what you have done with the various incarnations of the Athletics, and how they have mixed in prior franchises per each city, I can't help but wonder if we see that in Portland...? Say, a PCL reference that heavily borrowed a design element from a Missouri franchise? I hate to say much more without a spoiler, but... Elephants on the bat??
  2. First thing that comes to mind, getting back to the core of this topic, would be Portland's dual stripe jersey sash.
  3. Been letting this sit for a couple days, and I've scrolled through all of the comments... I get that the purple jersey has been the hot topic, but, nothing about the solid stripe on the back of the neck trim? What is that all about? Is it so that it ties the aesthetic to the purple jersey? That's as big an eyesore as the side panels, if you ask me. Furthermore, the fact that these jerseys haven't been draped in Nike-speak, unlike other reveals, kinda leaves me dumbfounded.

    I missed the name because I was distracted by the M-based camo pattern around the court... yikes!
  5. Nope, did that and still get the redirect.
  6. I am having the same issues on mobile, and pop ups, and redirects everywhere. It's virtually unusable. And I am also getting the same Amazon spinning wheel hijack thingy...

    MLB changes 2018?

    Quick reply here... That first jersey with the half circle above the number? That was a stock Cooper jersey template in the early 1980s, seen throughout major junior, i.e. WHL, OHL, and QMJHL. Would've been wild to have seen that in he NHL!

    Love the full Blue Jays script. The numbers are so-so for me. I'm head over heels for the belveling on the 8, but the 5 and 9 are much too similar.

    MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    YES!! This was classy, classic, and damn near perfection. I miss the Beavers, I miss PGE Park (pre-Timbers reconfig) and I miss the hope and dream that once existed of bringing MLB to Portland.

    2018 NFL Offseason

    Just saw video of Randy Moss getting his HOF invitation, and boy did I get a blast from the past. I had no idea (and really, who did?) that C. David Baker, fromer Arena League commissioner for 11+ years, has been president of the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the last four years. Mind blown...

    Are CJ's socks new for this set? Those are awesome!! And I'm not one who really gives much interest towards NBA socks...

    For me, they are a solid 8.75/10. I'd like these a whole lot better if they increased the learning between rip and city. Right now, it reads as "ripcity". At the end of the day, they are still better than the blood clots, er, statement uniforms.

    So, I hate to resurrect the whole Army vs Vegas topic, but I had an interesting experience just a couple days ago, and I thought it was worth sharing... I work retail out here in Oregon, where there isn't a whole lot of hockey merch worn on a daily basis. I had a customer come into my store (the business is not sports related) and he was wearing a hat very similar to the one pictured: After a very quick glance, I almost walked over and made a comment about the Vegas Golden Knights, until I saw the side of the hat which read West Point. My point to this post is that if I consider myself to be logo and "brand" savvy, and I had presumed a hat logo to represent one team instead of another, I'd say Vegas doesn't stand a snowball's chance in court. Get regular Joe Public types who don't follow that stuff, and I think it's going to fall apart real quick for Vegas. Just my two cents worth...

    How much can you "update" a classic?

    The New York Rangers, for the longest time, had some beautifully sewn vertically arched NOBs. When the Edge jerseys came in, the arch became less pronounced. Also, the first year Avalanche jerseys had NOBs with varying line weights. I always felt that the inaugural season Avalanche jerseys were superior because of that quirk. The smaller crest holds it back from being perfect, but now I'm veering off the topic...
