  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I don't recall the Lions switching to white shoes as part of the new uni roll-out. Did I miss something?
  5. Detroit Tigers alternate jersey

    Fatal? No. Good idea? No.
  6. New Survey Series - Best Helmet by NFL Team

    Not at all. I've seen that particular "error" many times and have always wondered if it might be intentional (the conflation of Detroit and "riot"). Thanks so much for asking though.

    Typo, Freudian slip, or some combination?
  8. Pistons Logo Change

    Record wise, yes, though they looked like hot garbage and I never could muster much love for the Grant Hill era (Dele, Cleaves, Mills, etc.). Seeing Dumars go down with the ship in that look was the icing.
  9. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    Don't think so. The only true profile is of Laken Tomlinson, who's a massive, big-headed human. The second image has a near-profile, but that player is wearing one of the new, cartoonishly large helmets.
  10. Pistons Logo Change

    Guessing you weren't around for the late '70s (Vitale, McAdoo, the Lanier trade, etc.). Doesn't get much darker than that. Also, I'm digging the updated logo, and don't see any reason to bring back the horse.

  13. Rebranding the Braves?

    In just three sentences we have an ad hominem and a red herring. So well played.
  14. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    I have a feeling the next iteration will resolve the inconsistencies throughout the set. I don't see major changes coming the next time around (five years?, whenever...), because the new set is already really popular among Lions fans and will likely grown on others once they see it on the field.

    Rip-rop-rippity-do.
