    I just wish the panthers would drop every instance of silver in their colour scheme for white. It would look so much better, cleaner and more vibrant

    Honestly I do think there are better names out there than Sockeyes or Thunderbirds, but it seems people are resigned to that list

    New Era to become official outfitter of the CFL in 2019

    Probably the strangest jersey sponsor I’ve ever seen.

    White at home made sense when nobody had a colour tv and the only way to see the visiting team’s uniforms was to actually go to the game. Now that we’re in the 21st century, you’re in your barn, you should be representing your colours at home in all their glory. Honestly I wouldn’t mind seeing some more colour on colour matchups though, assuming everything keys up correctly. If you’re wearing orange and your opponent wears blue there’s no real reason either one of you needs to wear white.

    Philosophical question - Monochromatic Design

    I don’t think it’s completely accurate. Baseball has VERY few monochromatic uniforms, the cap would have to match for that to be the case. Basketball uniforms cover significantly less than other uniforms. Whenever people complain about monochromatic football uniforms, they conveniently ignore the plethora of all white looks, and there are decent looking exceptions as well (Ravens all black comes to mind). Hockey is full of fantastic monochromatic looks, I’ve never heard anyone complain about monochromatic hockey uniforms as a universal bad. It really is a case-by-case thing. You can’t really make a blanket statement about that.

    Guess I need to invest in a thread ripper. These will look great with an out of place manufacturer's logo on one side and the advertisement on the other.

    It doesn’t have to be a complete departure, but it should be different enough from the main set to warrant being it’s own look. Otherwise it just ends up looking like a great value brand version of the original.

    To me the entire point of an alternate jersey should be to showcase an aspect of your team’s identity that is downplayed by the main set. Whether that’s a colour change, logo change, throwback or whatever is to be determined, but it should be markedly different from the main uniform. That’s why this new Isles third sucks. It’s the same colours as the home uniform, with way worse striping. It’s the same logo with a bunch of details stripped away. You look at it and go “What’s the point of this”?. I know the point is obviously cash and selling merch, but from an aesthetics perspectives it’s pointless, why would I want a third that’s nothing more than a downgraded version of the original.

    Practice jersey-esque.

    I do not care whatsoever about the Hartford Whalers the team, I just think it’s great that we’re getting to see one of the greatest identities in sports back on the ice again. As someone with a somewhat esoteric fascination with sports aesthetics that you all share, I think it’s understandable. I’m a diehard Canucks fan, til death do us part, but I still have a Hartford Whalers hat I’ll wear now and again because I love the look. Seeing as the team doesn’t really exist anymore I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.
