    Best looking matchups

    I know there was a thread like this somewhere, but I think it's worth bringing up again. What are some of the best looking matchups uniform-wise you can think of? I'll start off with two CvC CFB rivalries, UCLA and USC and The Battle of the Carolinas. Also, The Keystone Classic is a good one.

    Perhaps the only good thing to come from the color rush program is the wide-spread use of colored numbers. For many of the jerseys, if the stand alone, the dark numbers make the look. This Browns' get-up, though I still think they should go with their classic uniforms for the most part, is no exception.

    Orioles will be the first pro team to wear Braille jerseys

    The real question is, is the lettering actually raised?
  4. Just noticed that New Era has a Steelers hat with an "S" logo I've never seen before. I also remembered that the Cowboys have a "D" logo and the Bears have a "B" logo, both of which I've only seen on New Era Sideline hats. Are these three actual alternate logos, or are they just designed by New Era for their products, and if the latter is true, wouldn't that be a huge violation of the style guide and teams' branding?

    Interesting Sports Facts and Statistics

    The team that has beaten the Matt Ryan-era Falcons in the playoffs has gone on to play in the Super Bowl 2008- Warner's Cardinals 2010- Rodgers' Packers 2011- Eli's Second 2012- 49ers in the Harbaugh Bowl 2016- Let's not talk about this one 2017- Eagles
  6. Bucs: The numbers are abrupt and illegible. Between the shoulder yoke, orange trim, and asymmetric sleeve logos, it's an attempt to look modern and sleek that comes off clunky and cluttered.
  7. https://theathletic.com/95711/2018/08/27/the-wreck-of-the-edmund-fitzgerald-trophy/ Came across this article today, and realized that something college football rivalries have that NFL rivalries don't are names and trophies for the game and the game's winner, respectively. In general, NFL rivalries hardly stand up to those in CFB, and maybe the lack of "characterization" of the games has something to do with it. This thread is basically brainstorming names and/or trophies for NFL rivalries. Keep in mind, teams don't need to play in the same division to be rivals, but when they do play every couple of years the game could still have a name. Don't necessarily need to involve just two teams, could be who has the best record of three, like the Commander in Chief's Trophy. Ideas off the top of my head- Established Rivalries: Rust Belt Battle (Ravens v Steelers) Battle for Ohio (Bengals v Browns) Cowboys and Indians (Redskins v Cowboys) Southern Showdown (Falcons v Saints) Non-established: East and West (largest cities on each coast) (Giants/Jets v Rams/Chargers) The Brawl in a Blizzard (coldest and snowiest stadiums) (Bills v Packers) 3 or more teams: Dixie Shootout (teams located in traditional Deep South (Falcons v Saints v Jags v Titans) The Cat-Fight (Panthers v Jags v Bengals v Lions)

    Best Cities to place fictional sports teams?

    Aside from the obvious large metro areas, I go for Salt Lake City

    Off topic I know, but is Rice changing its primary helmet color to white? https://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/texas-sports-nation/college/article/Three-potential-sleepers-to-watch-for-Rice-13162024.php

    My take: it depends what the "Point of Emphasis" is on the uniform, usually a unique element that defines the brand. If you have a helmet like the rams, a logo on the sleeves like the falcons, or a color scheme like the jags, you should design the uniform around that element, make that the focus, with minimal but effective striping, if any at all, like UCLA. However, if not, focusing on the stripes can make the uniform great, i.e., Kansas City. EDIT: POINT MADE

    Doesn't help that it's such a hideous number font. Big AND thin AND rigid-looking? Yikes.

    Please tell me Metallic numbers isn't going to be the next anthracite or whiteout trend.
  15. Inspired by @WavePunter's "bad design that works" What are the most distinct and identifiable elements on uniforms? Examples include UCLA's Clarendon numbers, Michigan striped helmet.
