    Favorite jersey number?

    49 has been a favorite of mine dating back to my teens. It has to do with the old NFL numbering system. That was the highest number for a DB or RB to wear - still is. I thought of DBs who wore it as like combinations between DB and LB. Sometimes on Madden I would overload numbers in the 50s and 90s so I could have a linebacker wear 49. Now there's no need, as that's an allowed number for the position. With the number of players splitting time between linebacker and defensive line these days, that's led to weird sights like Vic Beasley Jr. lining up at defensive end while wearing #44. I also echo OP in liking 0 and 00. I think I like the double aught better. I'd love to see a WR wear a single aught though. Too bad the number isn't allowed in the NFL. Also, Benito Santiago's 09 for the expansion Marlins. Not sure how that was even allowed to happen, but I love it.

    It's Enrico Palazzo!

    NFL 2018 changes

    When they're wearing teal, yes, they look good. When they're wearing black or white jerseys with virtually no trace of teal...that won't.

    Hornets Go Full Retro, Unveil Throwback Court

    Never mind. Can't get the pic and don't have time to sign in to a sharing site. But '90s Spurs and '90s Raptors would be my two favorite courts to bring back. As far as the old Mavs court...they ought to just rebrand and return to those colors with a better logo.

    Only if the rebrand involves light blue road uniforms and a red hat.

    "Bad Design" that actually works

    Small amounts of black worked. Large did not. As far as the stripe goes...the thinness of it drove me crazy, but one time I saw a concept where the facemask had a matching thin stripe and I thought that was super cool. So, I dunno. I do like that they used some white in those designs. I feel like there's not enough in their current look. And for what it's worth, I'm not a Lions fan, but I've always liked Honolulu blue and silver together.

    "Bad Design" that actually works

    Broncos' side panels...even making them continue and flow into the pants stripes works when the pants are properly aligned.

    Loved that bright, obnoxious shade of orange. Didn't they mute it somewhat after a year?

    "Bad Design" that actually works

    I just noticed that a couple years ago, how the jersey and pants piping connect. That part works. But those sleeve caps are so distracting and make the whole outfit feel unnecessarily busy. Side note: why is Matt Ryan wearing socks that are almost completely red? Why is Devonta Freeman wearing socks that are almost completely white? Not to mention the different-colored shoes. My OCD is getting triggered here.

    Forgotten classic uniforms

    How about the 1997-2002 Atlanta Falcons? They took the "Back in Black" look of Jerry Glanville and added more red to balance it out. Most people seem to like their uniforms from their red-helmet days; while their throwback last year used the black helmet, the jersey and pants were (IIRC) from the team's expansion era. It's weird because it was wearing the 1997-2002 set that the team made its first Super Bowl appearance, with the iconic "Dirty Bird" team. You'd think more people would want to remember that. I personally think it was the best color balance they've ever had, with black, red, and silver sharing space.

    Logo/Uniform Soft Spot

    I have a soft spot for logos with interlocking letters. Especially baseball: cap logos for Giants, Dodgers, Cardinals, Yankees, Padres, Mets, Royals, Rays... (I do wish the Padres and Rays would spruce up their uniforms though.)

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Those teal caps can't be wrong for anyone. (Swoons)

    Spurs need to be next. Their fiesta court was gorgeous.
