    That's still better than it being on the uniforms.
  2. Movie Posters, Movie Posters, and Movie Posters

    Famed anime director Masami Obari - known best for making giant robots look cool as f*** - made this poster for the Japanese release of Pacific Rim Uprising. It's simply glorious.
  3. Well, that was crap. But I'm not especially surprised. The Sharks absolutely deserved this.
  4. Biggest Downgrades in History

    And to top it all off, the first one you posted was already a downgrade from the earlier version with the shield logo. The crown is weirdly designed and all I could see was a frightened pair of eyes staring back. Even now I can't unsee it. But yeah, minus the script this was a much better look for them. I'll never understand why they swapped the logos around.
  5. Biggest Downgrades in History

    I actually like both sets with black. The green, black and gold North Stars jersey is one of my all time favourites. Weirdly with the Flames, I love the red, black and gold scheme on the dark jersey, and yet I don't like it so much on the white uniform. I don't know why, but something about it always seemed off and I can't quite put my finger on it. Nothing says "Brian Burke is embarassed about our past" like going to an extremely minimalist black and white look and having almost no visual connection to the thing they share their name with. Their branding at the time consisted entirely of wordmarks. They've gotten better since introducing actual logos into the identity, and while the uniforms are certainly more colourful than what came before, they're still not particularly good.

    This Power Rangers poster hit all the right spots for me and then some.
  7. Biggest Downgrades in History

    I've ranted about this enough already. Not even a Stanley Cup win could magically erase my frustrations at this rebrand.
  8. NFL fan stereotypes by team

    I don't think we're allowed to post images that happen to contain swearwords but this comic perfectly sums it up. The more I think about it, the more I feel that sports fandom rivalry is meaningless.
  9. NHL 2018-19

    Ugh. I think it was said somewhere that all teams are getting alternates, so maybe it'll return next season.
  10. NHL 2017-18

    The addition of black really worked well for that North Stars set. If anything, the white shoulder yoke was where it went a bit overboard. Agreed.
  11. NHL 2017-18

    The Leafs jersey is nice. Interesting that they've gone with the white version of the logo instead of the blue one.
  12. NHL 2017-18

    I think it would make a neat basis for an alternate uniform. But I also think the current set is good enough to not need an alternate.

    I imagine we'll see proper Throwback Nights return following this first season of Adizero.
  14. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    A part of me isn't too keen on Seals. It's one thing for a team to relocate and take their name with them or modify it to fit their new locale, but an expansion team sharing their name with an old team that played in a different city would be a bit weird. On the other hand, it's not as if the original Seals are ever coming back. Seattle Seals or Seattle Sea Lions works well enough. Neither would be my preffered choice but I'd be fine with it I guess.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    A subtle green addition could work, like adding some detail to the eye. Anything more than that would be too much. I don't mind the orca, but losing the script would improve their uniforms tremendously. Pick one or the other, not both.
  16. NHL 2017-18

    The All Star jerseys are now up on the NHL shop. The Fanatics versions look way better without the Addydass side panels.
  17. NHL 2017-18

    You might've been before, but I can't unsee it now -- They almost had a solid if generic uniform here. The big red hemstripe is silly, but not as stupid as "Caps". Why not use that W logo on the front?
  18. Evolving Uniform Opinions

    When the Ducks unveiled their third-now-home in 2010, I was instantly in love. It made better use of the colour scheme than the regular uniforms, used an actual logo instead of the wordmark, and best of all the Mighty Ducks logo made its glorious return as a shoulder patch. And I couldn't wait until this was made into the new home jersey and a new set was based around it. Now? I can't wait for them to bin these. Viewed from the front or back it looks relatively inoffensive if a bit boring without any hemstripes, but then you turn it around to be greeted by obnoxious sidepanels. The white version is even worse and further shows how much of a mess the template is. Then there's the addition of laces, which are usually something I'd like, but are one thing too many on this Ducks set. Admitedly my newfound dislike may have spawned from my saltiness at the recent orange thirds being retired. Or maybe that uniform was the eye opener I needed. It got everything right that the Ducks have got wrong since they rebranded. But of course they don't take the opportunity that was staring them in the face and stick with the terrible mess of a uniform for the Adidas switcheroo. Nor did they ever wear that in the playoffs despite the whole #PaintItOrange thing. This f***ing team. Argh.
  19. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    London Knights: We may or may not take issue with a pro team named the Knights, but if you ask us nicely - Foley: What's that? We can't be just the Knights? Oh well! I guess we'll have to name ourselves the Golden Knights instead! London Knights: Wait, we haven't even - Foley: GOLDEN KNIGHTS!
  20. NHL 2017-18

    I believe it was something to do with the London Knights owning that trademark in Canada, complicating things for Vegas. Though I wonder how much truth there is to that, or if it was merely an excuse to pursue the Army-esque Adjective Knights which got them in legal trouble anyway.

  22. Havoc Emoji Jerseys

    They missed one.
  23. NHL 2017-18

    There have been far worse designs, but I can't get past the Addydass stripes, both on principle and for being one thing too many. The use of those paired with the neon colours make these feel like a weird hybrid of an All-Star uniform and generic sportswear.
