  1. College Football uniforms- 2018

    If these are true, then these are one of the best football unis in quite awhile love the orange jersey/navy pants combo. Still I would like to see UVA with a navy helmet so they can blend with the colors well. Still, even with the white helmet this is a definite upgrade (assuming these will be the official unis).
  2. NBA Changes 2018-19

    Sorry, that was up to the team to decide what to wear. Nike didn't twist their arm and say "You have to wear this, or have to wear that." The teams did not have to wear the "city edition" unis but decided to do so anyway. Why? Due to national exposure and marketing. That being said, I wouldn't say it was a disaster, but I do believe Nike still has work to do, like preventing jerseys to rip and so forth. IMO, they will figure it out because they are multi millionaire company and they want to maintain their #1 apparel company in the United States. Besides most of their unis are better than the 2010-17 Adidas rev 30 disaster we had to experience the last several seasons. Like I said, I am positive they will figure it out.

    And do you really believe Reebok did any better with the Jets green? Doubtful. Gotta love the pea soup colors. (Sarcasm).

    And nothing wrong with that. I always liked the Eagles in the midnight green, they look fantastic with those colors. I know the majority wants kelly green back and that's fine, but personally I am growing into the midnight green colors the Eagles are wearing. IMO, I still believe the Jets should be the team wearing kelly green like they did from 1978 through 1997 (being slightly modified beginning in 1990). That is one of the best and nicest uniforms of any NFL team in any era, never understood why they went back to the original dark green 1960s style look.
  5. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Yet the Ravens looked a lot better with gold pants compared to the mono black or the black leotards they consistently wear. I think if teams have gold as a color they should at least match the color as far as their pants or maybe as an alternate jersey color. Teams like the Packers, Steelers, Saints, the throwback Rams uniforms etc have looked tremendous with gold pants with both as a home and away set. I think the Jaguars can do the same as well, besides it just dull and predictable with all white all the time, and I am never going to be a fan of it.

    That is true, dark gold wouldn't blend very well. Hopefully make it light but not athletic gold.
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Here's what I think the Jaguars should do: 1. Go to back to a black helmet obviously, if not a black helmet go gold!! 2. White jersey with teal numbers and a black or a gold trim. Teal jersey with white numbers and black trim. And an occasional gold alternate (to replace black) with white numerals and teal trim. Use mono black for Color Rush games. 3. Scrap the white pants, we have too many teams these days relying with white pants. Replace them with gold pants (like the New Orleans Saints). Imagine a teal jersey/gold pants look it would be awesome and unique. 4. Use black pants for a few of the games, but not as often in the past.i Do this and the Jaguars will swing for the fences and hit a homerun. Sorry, that's a different sport I'm bad.
  8. Best Almost Super Bowl Matchups

    How about 1980 Cowboys vs Chargers (both wore white at home that year, but Dallas would have been the designated home team that year so obviously they would have worn white). And 1987, Vikings vs Browns (although the Browns the designated home team that year would have worn white because they wore white at home all year). And finally 2000 Vikings vs Ravens (an all purple Super Bowl) although the Ravens didn't play in Minnesota until 2009 so sorry no photos so here is the best scenario.
  9. Cincinnati Reds: Time For A Change?

    Can somebody explain to me why the Cincinnati Reds dropped the home white pinstripe set after the 1967 season? Those unis looked sweet, then they scrapped them for a regular plain white set which I never liked.

    I know this article is several months old, but Iowa State is getting new football unis next season. https://247sports.com/college/iowa-state/Bolt/Iowa-State-finalizing-Nike-uniform-redesign-for-2018-101613120
  11. My guess is if the Patriots win the AFC title game, they will likely wear white in SB 52 (even if they are considered the "home" team). They won the last two Super Bowls wearing white, whereas they lost the last two Super Bowls wearing blue. Which means Vikings or Eagles will wear color jerseys regardless the fact the SB is in Minneapolis. OTOH, should the Jaguars pull off the upset then they will likely wear their colored jerseys, meaning the Vikings as the host Super Bowl city could be wearing white at home for the first time since the mid 1960s even though they are considered the "road" team this season. Eagles if they win will likely wear white as well. Does that all make sense to you?
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The Spurs would have a great and classic silver uniform if Nike would make these instead of the logo and the number that IMO is a mess. This is how Nike created it the first time (circa 2004) and did it right. Not that hard to go back to it if they put their mindset to it.
  13. NFL 2018 changes

    The Texans should be the team to switch back to Oilers colors. Columbia blue and red represents Houston. Titans should keep both shades of blue and eliminate red. Add silver/gray as a tertiary color so they could avoid the blue overkill. Or have silver/gray as a replacement of the light blue. Whatever it takes with different ownership away from the post Adams era, the Titans need to find their own identity and change their look to move away from the Oilers era. Don't think it would take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

    So the schools are the desperate for cash so they have to go Adidas and look silly wearing them. I don't know how Adidas is remotely even close competiting with Nike but yet somehow they are. Sorry I will take the swoosh and UA over the three stripes anyday.
  15. I was hoping the Saints will wear white at home and force the Carolina to wear the "cursed" black jerseys. Panthers have never won a playoff game wearing black unis. It appears they have replace the Dallas blue tops as the most "cursed" jersey. Do it Saints. Prove Carolina can win a playoff game wearing black.
