    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    Welp. This is what the new Marlins home looks like in the sun, and as expected it is very underwhelming. It's essentially a black and white uniform. Hopefully the Marlins will be less timid with their "colores" as time passes, and continue to improve the look. Just slapping a blue brim on the cap for this uniform isn't going to cut it. There needs to be tweaks made throughout.

    Identities you wish were your team's

    I don't think so. A "pigskin" is what the ball is called. It would make no sense to call the players that. Not then, and not now. Only thing that comes close to that is the Nets NBA team, and that name is trash. They thought it was clever because it rhymed with Jets and Mets.

    Identities you wish were your team's

    Sure, I think keeping the burgundy and gold is the most realistic option at this point (WITHOUT a desperate name like "Pigskins" or "Redtails"). I would also argue that as time passes and the overall reputation of the franchise continues to sink, there's new generations of DC sports fans who care less about the Redskins and it's identity. They are far more into the other DC sports than they are the football team these days, and if the Redskins adopt an identity that draws itself closer to the rest of DC sports they would certainly be into it. New name and new identity for the new stadium would be popular with a LOT of people. This pretty much sums up the Redskins fandom in relation to DC sports today: Nobody takes the Redskins seriously anymore. It's a joke. I caught the tail end of the Redskins' golden era as a kid, and I've seen it go down hill ever since. Get rid of the name and the colors...

    Reimagining all 30 MLB teams

    Ok, obviously it's a crappy attempt at humor. Anybody got a realistic identity for a team that you think would be better than their actual one?

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    "Modern take" of a throwback? It's the same exact uniform. And going by what you just said, they should've never gone away from the 80's/90's look because of a little "bad history". Instead, they went back to an old atrocious look in a very gimmicky, Al Bundy-esque attempt to relive a very short "glory days" from 30 years prior. Made no sense.
  6. I'm just used to seeing streets closed and new ones built with all the major development here in DC, especially around Nats Park. Would it be possible to build over that portion of Mint St outside of right field? Maybe expand the next street over? No clue if any of that is possible. Just fantasizing looking at the pictures.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    Yeah it was odd bringing it back when they did. It's perfectly fine for a throwback, but permanently? Broadway Joe ain't coming back. Move on.
  8. I think it's overblown a bit. There were Washington Redskins fans in North Carolina before the Panthers existed because that was the closest team to them. I don't think people in Providence would feel that much different rooting for the Boston Patriots. It's already accepted that people tend to root for the closest team to them, whether they are a few minutes or a few hours from that team's city limits. That's pretty clever if the color scheme includes Carolina Blue, which it absolutely must. What's it at now, about 10,000 seats? If they can get it up to 28,000- 30,000, they'll be good. Smaller stadiums seem to be the direction nowadays anyway. Just needs to be privately-funded, I guess.

    I have the opposite opinion of OP. I love the red and navy scheme of DC sports. It seems like a common scheme, but I feel like DC in a certain way truly owns the look. Plus, the red dominant/ navy trim scheme is rare anyway, compared to a blue dominant look. With that said, I would give Washington's NFL team the red and navy look and identity similar to the Washington Valor: I would go with maybe Washington Warriors, Washington Veterans, or something similar.

    2019 MLB Changes

    These aren't "alleged Padres prototypes", they are just one person's concepts based on the descriptions of the new uniforms we've gotten so far. Although he clearly left out the description "a lot of white".

    NFL changes 2019

    What really mindflucked me was "Oracle Park". Made me think Las Vegas Raiders of Golden State. They might as well change it to San Fransisco Bay 49ers after the Raiders are gone.
  12. Yeah Tony Gwynn supposedly said "baby poo". Who else?
  13. I'm assuming those comparisons came mostly from fans of rival teams. Brown suits, shirts, jackets, etc are acceptable. Why wouldn't brown in uniforms be?

    Los Angeles Rams Confirm Throwback Uniforms For Super Bowl

    Yes, it was a "partnership":

    Los Angeles Rams Confirm Throwback Uniforms For Super Bowl

    Nah. The LA Rams should stick with their traditional, beautiful royal blue and yellow. Reducing the royal blue just because it may look a bit close to the Chargers' navy and powder blue to some is absurd. They'll probably end up with a yellow alt anyway.

    Milwaukee "Bring Back The Glove" Campaign

    Bring Back the Brown was about bringing back the color, not a specific old look or logo. That could be more difficult to accomplish. Just start with trying to bring back the colors, and the ball-in-glove could make a comeback as well. Especially since they already use it.

    MLB Changes 2020

    I expect most of MLB will make the transition to gorgeous matte finish helmets by 2020.
  18. This Wyoming uniform is a good example of "brown, yellow, and a lot of white". Minus the white panel cap, I could see something like this with the brown alt.

    Los Angeles Rams Confirm Throwback Uniforms For Super Bowl

    Agreed. Nobody confuses the two teams. It would be like confusing the LA/California Angels with the LA Dodgers. Their specific colors and designs are enough to set them apart. No need to change anything, other than for the Rams to fix the mismatched blue helmet and jersey.

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Those dark red/ lime green schemes are great IF they decide to go with a red and green combo. It'll separate them from the Minnesota Wild, and give them a connection to Seattle sports at the same time.

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Maybe their rationale was to "fit in" with a common color scheme in NHL. They already know NHL fans in Seattle are going to support them regardless. That said, I personally think they should go with a unique shade of blue and lime green. Maybe steel blue like the previous Seahawks set, or something similar:

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    The gear is still associated with that NHL Seattle group in particular, which was already using red and black. It's like the Portland Diamond Project selling navy blue gear. I guess both groups just wanted to use a common color scheme in their respective sports. I know the PDX group mentioned on Twitter that the navy blue isn't an indication of a decision on actual team colors. Don't know about the NHL Seattle group.

    Love that red face mask. The white always looked weird to me.

    2019 MLB Changes

    Hard to see the fans dropping the "Tomahawk Chop". Maybe they can start doing the "Soldier Salute".
