    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    I would argue that a lot of these uniforms are simple and clean, not bland. The Blue and white Padres uniform-probably bland is a good word to describe it, especially considering some of the other color combos from the past they could work with. Same goes for that Canucks uniform and the Rays, boring and bland. I'll never get the hate for the wine and gold Cavs uniforms. The colors are bright and the design is classic. I hardly see how it's bland
  2. I've never really liked the pinwheel caps to begin with. Feels very bro slow pitch softball league to me and it doesn't work with every logo/color combo. I'd like to see the All Star Game caps just be the teams' regular caps with gold stars around the eyelets. I think maybe they have done that in the past? Go crazy for the Homerun Derby and change that design every year according to the host team if you must. I don't think that's a bad idea really, but I'd like the game caps to be a little more subdued.
  3. Pretty much perfect. It's all the bengals should do and 1000 times yes to the orange socks and only orange socks. They can't be trusted to wear the correct socks/pants combo if they have more than one option.

    2018 NBA Post Season

    You're right. I misinterpreted the rule, I think the charge call was wrong but they were also wrong to change it the way they did. I was only able to watch the second half, but I thing both teams got their fair share of missed/bad calls and Lebron got an unfortunate string of 2 or 3 bad ones at the endorsed of the game.
  5. Yeah fire engine red and yellow, like the KC Chiefs and Calgary Flames. I don't like that color scheme. USC looks good. I do like burgundy/maroon/garnet with yellow, just not bright red and yellow

    You're right, I misunderstood the rule, actually the only thing they should have been able to review was whether he was in the restricted area. I thought a block was the right call, but they probably did get there the wrong way.

    I don't know. That rule about being able to review a block/charge was implemented correctly, I think. Apparently that rule is a little unclear. I thought it was a pretty obvious block in the first place. Durant didn't initiate the contact and Lebron was still leaning/sliding/hadn't established his position,but I'm not sure how I feel about using replay to review and overturn a judgement call. That's a situation where the refs need to get together and make the right call. I think they got the call right, but the way they got there wasn't exactly kosher. Tossing Thompson was weird. Green should have gotten a tech too, but there was no reason for Tristan Thompson to take a swing at him. He should probably be suspended. On on another note, I don't know how Lebron restrained himself from dropping JR Smith at the end of the 4th. No wonder he has to score 50 if he has to deal with teammates like that.
  8. I don't like red and yellow. Ketchup and mustard comparison aside, it's just a garish color scheme, imo. Both colors are too bright to work well together.

    Pittsburgh Steelers Unveil 1979 Throwback Uniform

    Eh...why bother? Most people probably won't even notice a difference between the throwback and regular black jersey. Besides, if you wanna see the Steelers with block numbers, just watch Iowa on saturdays. I'm kidding, mostly, but the batman jerseys would have made a much cooler alternate.

    NFL | Cleveland Browns Primary Logo Rebrand

    I think I would beef up the brown stripes in the football, especially if you're trying to mimic the Browns' helmet stripes which are all the same width, or at least pretty close, the white may be a bit wider. You'd have to make the wordmark more squat, but the stripes would be more like what the Browns actually wear.

    NBA officiating is garbage. It's frustrating to watch as a basketball fan and I know it has to be hard on the players too. Having said that, I'm also tired of seeing the star player constantly talking at the refs, just play.
  12. Why can't we have nice things? As far as I'm concerned, MLB uniforms are about as good as can be expected right now. The material is nice, most of the teams look good. The piping goes all the way around the sleeves and the pants stripes run the full length of the pants. Hell even stripes socks and stirrups are making a comeback. I didn't want the New Era logo on the caps, or the UA logo on the front of the jerseys and I don't want the Nike logo on the chest of the uniforms either. Money makes the world turn though and the old white guys who run MLB have research that shows kids love #fire uniforms in every color under the sun with Nike logos plastered all over them and they are losing kids watching and playing baseball to other sports wearing Nike branded uniforms so pasting Nike logos on every thing will fix that. Well it won't, I love baseball and I'll never quit watching it but people perceive baseball as boring because the way it's being played, with an emphasis on analytics and #launch angle, with a disregard for strikeouts by hitters has made for some very slow moving, boring baseball. It has nothing to do with the fact that the players are wearing nice clean uniforms. Not to mention every batter needs to call time twice and step out of the box to adjust his batting gloves and kiss his gold chain between every pitch. Baseball needs to eliminate unnecessary dead time in games, not bring in Nike to get the kids excited about buying their favorite team's jersey with a Nike logo. On top of that rant, I don't really like Nike's baseball templates all that much. They are cut weird and have unnecessary seams and vents all over the place. I'm only 24 but get off my lawn with your hip new materials and ventelation systems and yes, the sky is falling. Nike will ruin every MLB uniform and change is always bad.

    KC Royals Show Off 2018 Turn Ahead the Clock Uniforms

    I'd agree with that, only makes sense. Its a fun concept but I think they could have played up the futuristic angle a bit more, feels kinda tame in that respect.
  14. That's the idea, of course, it wa Amy intention last summer too. It may be slow to finish but I intend to finish the AL and maybe go back and redo some of the NL teams I'm not so happy with anymore. Thanks for the input guys. I was trying to make the A as big as possible and it's kind of an awkward shape to fit inside a circle so yeah it definitely looks off. I'll fix that. Here is a Mariners concept for your viewing pleasure. I think their current look is a bit generic and dated. The color scheme is great, but the rest of the identity is boring IMO. So, I created a new set of logos, making the compass rose more prominent. I also tweaked the colors a bit, brightening up the teal and making the blue a touch more green. Teal is incorporated more prominently into the wordmarks and numbers to bring a little more visual interest to the uniforms. I also brought back the lower case wordmarks, something unique to the Mariners in the past. The blue jersey is a alternate that would be worn bit on the road and at home and the teal jersey and cap are For Spring Training and batting practice. Thanks for taking the time to have a look and as always, any and all feedback is appreciated.
  15. Lots of guys have played for the Cardinals and Cubs. Some of the ones I can think of off the top of my head are: Lou Brock Lee Smith Mark DeRosa John Mabry Jim Edmonds So Taguchi Jason Motte John Lackey Jason Heyward Dexter Fowler Rogers Hornsby Jason Marquis Bruce Sutter Joe Girardi Got curious and looked it up: Apparently there have been 309 players who have played for both teams and one of them was Dizzy Dean, who knew?
