  1. 2017 NFL Season

    You know, the ignorance of President Trump is unfathomable. What good could he have possibly thought would come from commenting on something that is relatively inconsequential compared to othet problems facing the US? If the players didn't have a good reason to kneel for the anthem before, they have one now. Now he's legitimized the protests and given the players a cause with a face, what an idiot.
  2. infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL Week Two

    Both of those teams would be well served to always wear grey/silver pants and black shoes, IMO, and the Giants need to return to that pant stripe is the second pic too. Just based on that alone, I'd say that the matchup from a few years ago is the better one.

    They should have matched the pant striping to the helmet striping by adding the white middle stripe. I'll never understand why is wasn't that way from the beginning of their latest update.
  4. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I don't know. It still looks good, we still know it's Wazzu and they have traditionally worn just as much white as gray, but gray works very nicely. I get what you're saying about the lack of Gray on the crimson uniform, but I don't think it keeps us from recognizing WSU if they don't wear gray pants and/or helmets. I will say, though, that WSU would be well served to drop the white pants and stick to crimson and gray helmets and pants, which is part of a much larger problem in college football where every school thinks they need to have every piece of their uniform in every school color plus black and gray and wear something different every week so they don't have a consistent visual identity.
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    When they first unveiled these I felt the same way. I thought they were way too boring and over-simplified, but after seeing them in action last week I really appreciated the simplicity of the single color numbers with the rich crimson and I thought the gray pants worked really well. It has a traditional look and feel, but is the dark gray and custom number font give it let you know it's a contemporary design. On the field, the uniform had a great collegiate look and feel that was really cool.
  6. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I'd have to disagree with your assessment here. White pants would have been "so much better". The LA Rams are a prime example of blue,maize/yellow, white working very well. The color balance is very similar to what Michigan might look like. Also, I'd have to say that dark helmet, lighter jersey and lightest pants almost always looks good. These are just a few examples that came to mind: The dated uniform nonwithstanding, I think the colors look pretty sharp when put together this way for the falcons It's subjective and maybe I just have poor taste, but I think all three of these uniforms are at least decent looking from a color perspective, going from dark to light.
  7. NFL Uniform Concepts

    I love the vintage fauxback vibe of your Cardinals concept and the side stripes really work. And I love the red socks with the stripes. You should add those to the red uniform too. I'm not crazy about the tan pants though. The concept is very strong and I get what you're going for but In a real world application, I don't think most people would "get it" and would be wondering why the Cardinals are wearing tan pants. I also appreciate how you always have a reason for doing something with every concept you post on here. Great work as always.
  8. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    Did the Lions change the blue? It looks a shade or two lighter. Maybe it's the lighting but I don't like the way it looks in these pictures.
  9. NFL 2017 changes?

    I actually really don't like it. I'd even say I prefer cut-off stripes to two stripes, especially since we know they are perfectly capable of having three stripes on the sleeves because the Bears can do it. Three stripes on the sleeves has become an iconic look for the Niners and it kinda sucks to see them go away from it just because.
  10. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    I had almost forgotten about that uni, it's really sharp. I love that wordmark.
  11. Minnesota Timberwolves

    So here's my $.02...Objectively, they are a really sharp, clean, modern uniform with a nice color scheme. For generic double-blue team A, the new Timberwolves uniforms would be a very nice start. However, they are not even close to what I was expecting/hoping for and are not in line at all with what I have come to expect from the Timberwolves from a uniform perspective. The new logos were really nice. Obviously the double blue was prominent, but it seemed like the new green would be featured more than just in a small triangle at the bottom of the shorts. Why even put it there at all? A tree pattern on the side panels, cuffs, sublimated, anywhere would At least give these well designed, but boring uniforms some character. I don't hate Minnesota's new uniforms, I'm just really disappointed, considering they could have been so much more.They had so much to draw inspiration from. Just a little bit of their bright green, when implemented correctly, can go a long way and they could have owned it. We got something good but It missed the mark, IMO.
  12. MLB Changes 2017

    They are all really bad. That's pretty obvious to me, but I really hate the uniforms where the caps are lighter than the main color of the jersey. It never looks good, also I hope the light blue matches better between the caps and jerseys in real life than it does in the mockups, but I'm not holding my breath. The grey, cream and white jerseys are least offensive though, still unnecessarily stupid and silly, but mildly attractive. As fashion jerseys and caps, these would still be ugly, but inconsequential, at least because we would never have to see them on the field. Long story short, this promotion is stupid and the uniforms are ugly.
  13. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I will agree with you that both of the black Rutgers uniforms are rather unnecessary and ill advised, basically recycling a tired, generally poorly executed concept. Rutgers should be wearing red and white with or without black trim on the numbers/R logo. I will say, though, that the Nike version is better executed with the more prominent red striping. It feels more thoughtful at least than the rather plain Adidas uniform. Your larger point still stands though, it doesn't really matter who makes the uniform, if it's good, then fine. If it's bad, then fine, but Nike is just as capable of producing trendy half-baked concepts as Adidas.
  14. Indiana Pacers New Uniforms, Alternate Logos

    This is exactly what I was thinking. It really reminds me of Marquette's new uniforms, not to say that's a bad thing, but it's the first thought that came to my mind
