  1. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Just a word of advice, the number on a baseball uniform should always be on the left, not below the chest logo.

    I don't prefer the mostly red Angels look because of the red vs blue dynamic. I prefer it because I think it's the best look the team has ever had. Honestly? I prefer traditional looks but a lot of the older Angels looks with navy caps? They look like Jewish west coast Red Sox at best and generic at worst. The heavy red look not only looks great but gives the team a vibrant and unique look. A look that has a World Series Championship associated with it.The red vs blue thing with the Dodgers is just a really cool bonus. Because nothing's more vibrant than logos and wordmarks that are the same color as their background. I do love it when someone tries to prove to me that my opinion is wrong For the sake of discussion though... Just look at that wordmark blending into that background. Travesty, I know. As for the hat? Yeah, the A is red, and so is the cap. Given that it's 2015 and the era of HD and has a thick and bold outline? I don't see it as a problem. I never tried to say you were wrong for having that opinion, just that I disagreed with what you said.Obviously I only meant the red alternates when it comes to the wordmark. And just because you can see the logo doesn't excuse the red-on-red thing. It still has absolutely no pop against the red background, and looks muddled. Contrast looks good, and their hat doesn't have that at all. It's like the whole black Mets thing. Sure you can see the blue hat logo and wordmarks, but they still have almost contrast on the black backgrounds and that's why it doesn't work.

    Well I guess I might as well give my Nike redesign review: Seahawks: Meh. I don't really mind the Seahawks being sort of an out there looking team, but these uniforms are underwhelming. The color scheme is alright, I do like minimal use of neon green and although I liked it when they first got rid of it I'm starting to realize how dull the slate blue from their last set was. Still there are problems. The striping or whatever you wanna call it on the uniforms is completely underwhelming. The number font isn't all that good. The feather pattern is way to overused. It looks awful on the helmets (why do the Seahawks need a helmet stripe???) I think using it as shoulder and pant striping would be good and actually look cool, but as is it's a little much. And I hate how none of the pants have all three colors on them, they all eliminate one for some reason. Also the monochrome needs to stop. I think may be allowed to own monochrome in the NFL, but Seahawks looks much better with navy on grey. Grade: C Downgrade from previous set (which was a B+) Dolphins: The new aqua looks amazing. That's it. The number font is ugly, the other colors are barely noticeable, the new logo doesn't fit a football team at all and looks pretty awkward, and the tiny logos on the sleeves look awful. Also the wordmarks are mediocre at best, I hate that they almost never wear aqua (though that's not a new problem), and it really pisses me off that they got rid of the beautiful aqua facemasks for boring ass white. Grade: D Downgrade from previous set (which was a C) Jaguars: I literally still can't believe the helmet. The cheap black to gold gradient looks so bad and amateurish, it looks like something that would be laughed off the concepts forum. Speaking of concepts, that's what I though the new logo was when I first saw it. It's just looks cartoonish and while not badly rendered, it doesn't look professional to me. Some people say their uniforms are good from the neck down, I disagree. I hate the stupid plasticky looking crap on the sleeves. The pant stripes are awful templated looking garbage that doesn't even go down the pants. Changing from teal to black as the main color was criminal. It's also really stupid that they actually have "Jags" on their front chest logo, nicknames on a pro uniform? Seriously? Still I guess the home and road uniforms themselves aren't completely atrocious. The number font is the only one of Nike's that don't suck. However the teal uniform is completely horrible by breaking a cardinals in of football uniforms: NEVER have your numbers be darker than your uniform color. Truth be told colored numbers in general are a risk, but that design choice is essentially a death sentence to the uniform looking good. Grade: D- Downgrade from previous set (which was a D+) Vikings: The best Nike redesign by far, but that's not saying much. Now they completely ruined the helmet (the matte finish muddles the looks of it and the black facemask is so wrong), and the mismatched numbers look hedious, but besides that things are pretty good. When there's no wings on the numbers the set looks really good from the neck down. The color scheme is now gorgeous (if there's one thing often Nike does right, it's color schemes) The sleeve stripes (hey remember those?) are great and convey the team name without looking ridiculous. I'm generally not a fan of wordmarks above numbers, but in this case it looks great. The pant stripes look great too, very sharp. It does bug me that the stripes on the white uniform are yellow-white-purple, it's inferior looking to the pant stripe order and the yellow kinda gets lost, but it's not a huge deal. Mainly because the white pants aren't paired with the white uniforms anymore (I believe they haven't worn that combo in the regular season yet?) The purple pants on the road look awesome! There are definently some problems preventing this set from being awesome, but by Nike NFL standards it's incredible. Grade: B Upgrade from previous set (which was a C-) Buccaneers: F*** these uniforms. This redesign made me hate the Bucs and hope they never accomplish anything significant every again. The number font is the worst thing ever. It looks like a deformed alarm clock font, and that's before even mentioning the reflective crap and ten million outlines. The helmet is stupid. Yeah let's zoom it up so you can barely see the coolest part of the logo (the sword handle) The logo as a whole was seriously downgraded, it went from whethered and piratey to just...bleh. The shoulder yoke is just a rip-off the Titans. The pant stripe is the same garbage the Jaguars used! Why would you use that hideous garbage AGAIN!?! The red and pewter look awful touching each other, they need to be separate from each other like in the old set. They managed to make the set look even worse somehow by breaking out of place orange socks out sometime (for the love of God Bucs, you couldn't even not screw up the socks!?!) Having two different shoulder logos looks ridiculous. Admittedly the boat logo isn't too bad, though it is over-detailed, but the other side has...a wordmark? With the team's NICKNAME??? AAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!! Worst uniforms of any sport ever. Grade: F (only because I don't think F- is a real mark) Huge, massive, unspeakably humongous, Grand Canyon-sized downgrade from their previous set (which was an A-, and a modern classic) So as you can see, I don't like Nike and I am almost certain they'll pull at least some atrocious nonsense with the new Browns. When they weren't wearing the terrible brown leotards they were arguably the best looking team in the league. Nike's only done one passable set (the Vikings), and even it has some big problems and are over a full mark lower than what the Browns were wearing. Overall Nike's producing D-grade uniforms, and have produced some of the worst things (Jaguars' helmets, Buccaneers' everything) I've ever seen designed. Also their one somewhat strength, color schemes, won't even apply as by the sounds of things their gonna muddle the Browns' colors up by adding silver for not reason. R.I.P. NFL aesthetics. A few teams will continue to respect their identity enough not to hand it over to the idiots at Nike, but I don't think we'll ever see a great new NFL uniform again until Nike's reign of terror ever ends (if it ever does), or they actually get their s*** together (doubtful as fans seem to be eating up this garbage regardless of how it looks)

    It's a decent picture of a deer, but as a logo it's boring and soulless.

    I'm so tired of this "if" or "besides that" BS. You can't just randomly dismiss atrocious design elements that are a big part of the design. Especially when I've never actually heard a justification for how the rest of the Jaguars and Buccaneers garbage looks are somehow good. And literally no human being could actually like the Bucs' numbers or Jags' helmet. It's simply impossible. Even if someone said they did, its such a ridiculous statement that I wouldn't actually believe they meant it.

    Considering the fact that all the uniforms in the MLB store, and regular season unis used in Spring Training have the old one, I doubt it very much.
  9. MLB Changes 2015

    I dunno my views are on the Angels' identity to be honest, it's a tricky one, there's pretty much only three things I know the Angels have to do: 1. Keep the halo A, they can change it's appearance drastically but they need to keep the basic concept. 2. Stop this red-on-red nonsense. I'm mixed on what hat color they should wear, but no matter what they need to make the A a different color. 3. Cut back on the logo overkill. Their current set has 4 halo As on each one of them. I still can't comprehend why they added their primary logo to their right sleeve when the logo was already near that sleeve within their wordmark to begin with.
  10. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Even he seems confused.
  11. New Browns uni coming 2015

    Almost everything in this post is demonstrably wrong (besides the bad stuff said about the Bucs, although there's much more wrong besides the numbers)Deformed number fonts, pointless gimmicks that just muddle everything up, templated pant stripes, a freaking black and gold gradient helmet (you can say "if it wasn't" but the simple fact is it is) Also you didn't mention the hedious toilet seat collars. And not winning a championship in a long time is no excuse to change a perfect look. The only things Nike has really done right are changing the shades of the Dolphins' aqua and Vikings' purple, and the Panthers logo update (if that was even them...) Design-wise essentially everything has been at best bleh and at worst (and usually) atrocious.
  12. NBA Changes 2014-15 Season

    Considering the teams (though those Spurs uniforms would be awful no matter what team was wearing it) that uniform matchup is offensive.
  13. Best/favorite color schemes?

    The bias is strong with this one.
  14. NFL Changes 2015

    Maybe it'll be thr one with the 5 stripes on the sleeves? That's what my hope is. I love those 1960's uniforms, and it works with the one helmet rule very well, just a facemask change. It's not a big change from the norm, but it's an all timer. However, I believe that it'll be from the early era when the Pack was still blue/gold because the Acme Packer apparel sells like hotcakes here in Wisconsin. And it's a way of selling two different brands of the same merchandise for the team (aka $$$$) Not quite. The current logo is rounded at the end, while the old one was shaped like a football. vs. And it still should be.

    They're reversing to the EXACT OPPOSITE of what they should be doing.F*** Nike.
