  1. NHL 2017-18

    The collar’s bad (though to be fair ALL of the Adidas collars are bad), and the NY in the shield is needless clutter, but the yoke stripes? That’s the one redeeming feature. That shoulder stripe pattern’s a mainstay on the Rangers’ white sweaters. So seeing it on a blue sweater’s kind of cool.
  2. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Early 2000s is old school now? *sheds single tear*
  3. MLB changes 2018?

    It’s BP though. BP should be where you experiment with your look a bit. Not being game-worn gear means it can be a place to try out new looks and ideas without sacrificing the on-field identity. Of course BP caps and jerseys are practically alternates these days anyway. That’s more a problem with sports aesthetic branding in general though. Ideally BP stuff would be both relegated to actual batting practice and be a place for teams to try out new ideas.
  4. 2017 NFL Season What is this I don’t even... This is something the Browns would do. Don’t be the Browns, Bills.

    I just assumed Buffalo was Canadian during the Weekends anyway.
  6. NHL in Houston

    The Thrashers, playing in a Sunbelt metropolis, did so poorly they were dependent on League revenue sharing to stay afloat. Then they became the Jets and started playing in a much smaller city in the Canadian prairies. And they proved to be so successful there that they now pay into League revenue sharing rather than take from it. Cities like Nashville, Tampa, and Dallas have proven there is a market for the sport in some Sunbelt markets. Then you have Phoenix Arizona, Florida, and Carolina who prove night in and night out that the NHL shouldn’t be in those markets. It’s not as simple as saying “no snow? no hockey” but to pretend that the Sunbelt is this smashing success is foolhardy. Again, Winnipeg > Atlanta as a NHL market. So you’re not wrong, but you’re far from right.
  7. Well which one should matter to the Ottawa Senators? I say the Ottawa Senators fanbase. As for your quote I pulled up? I’m merely pointing out the hypocracy in defending the Avs’ innagural/current look with “it’s what the fans want” while dismissing the Senators fanbase when it comes to the Heritage identity. If you just *like* the Avs’ innagural look and *dislike* the Sens’ Heritage look for aesthetic reasons then fine. Let’s dispense with trying to couch it all in terms of what “the fans want” though. If you’re going to play that card? It has to be played consistently.

    I dig the super retro look the Reds went with. Now they just need to lose the black.

    Leafs got 1, but it’s all they needed.

    Edmonton's piling on the goals against Vegas. Regressing to the mean can come hard, and it can come fast.

    A bit late to the party, but War. ing. Eagle.

    If you swap out the vintage white for regular white? I'll take the Heritage look.
  13. NHL 2017-18

    Teams change logos all the time. It's a matter of branding. Not a lack of confidence in the team's abilities. Well that's just incorrect. The original Senators were around for 52 years. 51 of those years in Ottawa. How? I'm really not seeing it at all. If you want to prefer the Centurion to the =O=? Cool. The team choosing to downplay one over the other doesn't seem like an admission of anything, however. It's either a matter of personal aesthetic preference on the part of management or said management has data that suggests that the =O= is more popular among the fanbase than the Centurion. Either way it's branding. Nothing more or less.
  14. 2017-18 CHL Logos/Jerseys

    Once again my Rangers nail the Remembrance Day look.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    People can want to embrace the heritage look without pretending the new Senators are the old Senators. Nor do I see embracing the =O= as a sign that they're admitting that the current team will never win anything. That's honestly preposterous.
  16. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Nike telling the Los Angeles Lakers they can’t wear purple would be like if UnderArmour told the New York Yankees they can’t wear pinstripes until a certain date once they take over the MLB contract. It’s moronic. The Lakers are a marquee team, and they shouldn’t have to avoid wearing one of their signature looks just because Nike has a half-baked branding idea they insist on making a reality league-wide.

    Not really, no.

    Washington's lucky because the Seahawks couldn't protect G-d's gift to football on a vital end-of-game drive?
  19. Other Soft Drink Brand Logos

    It's very popular in Jewish delis. It sucks It's an acquired taste.

    Seriously, the local Bucs hype machine. This team is bad at playing football.
  21. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    People like good design. If Clemson changing it up makes for worse design? Well I don’t know what you were expecting.
