    Forgotten classic uniforms

    I don't understand why the Lombardi designed helmets didn't use a "W" instead of "R," following the example of the Packers helmet.

    MLB Relocation? Naw...

    Going back to 1954, Baltimore was at the time Senators' "territory" and the rights back then were bought much cheaper. Baltimore's part-owner, Hoffberger, who was President of Natty Boh beer, agreed to pay for radio and TV advertising in the DC area. When the Senators left in '71, MLB officially ceded their area to Baltimore. The 90/10 split was the deal MLB agreed to when moving the Nats into what was Baltimore "territory" at the time Angelos bought the team in 1993. The split increases 1%/year, with the Nationals maxing out at 33%. Today, they're around 18%. Reportedly, Angelos has tried to settle the MASN business offering the Nationals almost their 33% now but it has been turned down a few times. Given the MASN arrangement, until it is dissolved, the Nationals are bound to broadcast on that network.

    If you look closely in the picture, front row, far right, you'll see Carlton Fisk in the rare plaid Red Sox leisure suit uniform.

    Same cap as last year. Black jersey instead of white.

    Tonight, the Orioles play-by-play announcer said the Orioles will be wearing this jersey on Saturday. Black is the Friday night jersey, so I expect like last year, they'll be wearing them the day before the Saturday giveaway.

    Boog Powell wore the all orange uniform in 1972 and the all red uniform in 1975.

    Cincinnati Reds: Time For A Change?

    An argument isn't just contradiction. Well! it CAN be! No it can't! An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition. No it isn't! Yes it is! 'tisn't just contradiction.

    Yeah, Lombardi brought the look to DC, including the Braisher stripes and the yellow helmet and pants. I wonder why they went with "R" for Redskins instead of "W" for Washington on the helmets.

  14. This topic isn't as easy. For example, I don't find fault with anything really bad with any of the Super Bowl champions uniforms. If you go by my avatar, you know I hate the 1979 Pirates.

  16. I know this may not be popular, but they did win 3 Super Bowls in this uniform, and at least for sentimental reasons, it's my favorite. For the Orioles, the home and road were the best in 1970

    Objective evidence for a subjective statement? This should be good.

    Opinion: Too many teams with red and blue

    The Redskins ditched white pants after the 2012 season.http://www.gridiron-uniforms.com/GUD/redskins.shtml SF has more white stripes on their jersey sleeves than Washington and both use white numbers on their home jersey (along with the Packers and Chiefs and most, but not all, NFL teams). Be that as it may, I agree with the earlier post that it's the team's discretion what they list.

    Opinion: Too many teams with red and blue

    What am I missing about this chart? Official team colors? Every team has a white road jersey, so it's used if "unofficially" by 4 teams.

    Ottawa Senators Undecided About Which Logo to Use Going Forward

    If they're going to stick with the "O," should they borrow from the Ottawa flag?

    Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I know most are looking at the uniform details. What I see can be described as "you had one job." The bottom panel decals aren't aligned correctly with the top panel.
