  1. Little Caesars new logo

    So grateful to all who opined on LC pizza, as I've now realized that their taste buds should dictate what I like. Also, I prefer the old logo, mainly because of nostalgia (old enough to remember Pizza!Pizza! in the paper-wrapped long box).
  2. IIRC, the release materials indicated that the home/road uniform elements could be worn in any combination, which suggests that both white over grey (good) and blue over blue (not) are in play.
  3. Best College Football Uniform Matchups: Week 7

    This is probably somewhere on the boards, but what's up with the Cal stripes? What's the Nike-speak on those?
  4. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    Didn't like the blue pants in '98, and these are somehow worse. Hoping they'll tire of this look in the next couple of years and ditch 'em.
  5. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I know that set gets a lot of love here, but I became a Pistons fan watching Lanier in the '70s, and I just can't embrace the teal era. "Revulsion" isn't too strong a word when I see those things.

    That's a relief. Thanks for the info.

    Henry Ellenson at a bball camp: Of all the uniforms the Pistons could throw back to, they're going with that POS...?
  8. Pistons Logo Change

    Begs the question... why wasn't that already part of the court design? If they do add that (seems inevitable), a white text version near the timelines would seem like the way to go.
  9. Pistons Logo Change

    Thumbs up. An uncluttered floor works for them.
  10. NFL 2017 changes?

    Birds would disagree.
  11. NFL 2017 changes?

    On shoe colors, my less thought out counter: Lions, Cards and Bucs should be in black; Chiefs, Bills, Pats, Washington and the Seahawks should be in white. Agreed on the rest. On the Lions' new look: haven't had a live look yet, but as I suspected after the unveiling, on the tube the most annoying elements have to be actively looked for to be noticed. Thumbs up, white shoes notwithstanding.
  12. NFL 2017 changes?

    Agreed on the Bears, and I don't love the Lions' switching back to white. Then again, the Lions have been a white-shoe team for most of the Super Bowl era, including the "glory days"/Barry years, so the move isn't quite as jarring.
  13. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    I wouldn't be opposed to any of those changes. However, we differ in terms of how much of an upgrade the new set is, which affects how much the details they got "wrong" pose a problem. As a fan, I loathed the addition of black from day one, and never stopped. It served as a symbol of everything that was wrong about the Millen era (cosmetic toughness instead of the real thing; blunt force stupidity in all things). Dropping the black obscures many (though not all) of the lingering issues.
  14. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    I've said this before, but... when they're playing on the tube, the new set should look damn good, and most of the awkward elements will be barely noticeable, if that. The only problem element that will stand out is the blue road pants, and I'm hoping those will fade into obscurity over the next few seasons.
