    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Notre Dame should have worn green socks.
  2. Philadelphia actually wore black jerseys over white pants at New England during the 2014 preseason because their midnight green jerseys weren’t ready until Week 10 as they switched to the Nike Elite 51 template that fall.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Aside from the generic-looking abbreviated work mark, I though last year’s City jersey was a nice nod to Dallas’ skyline at night. (That said, I didn’t feel that way until I went there for the Cotton Bowl and saw it in person.)

    Man, you can even get Miami Vice license plates? I’m all in on this being their full-time identity. Noticed that link has both white and pink dates on the calendar. I’d assume they snuck in when they plan to wear the pink “Earned” uniforms, too.
  5. The Titans actually look really good in that zoomed-in photo of Mariota. That’s the only compliment I’ll ever give that set.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    If it’s anything like Pittsburgh’s 2016 batting practice hat, it’ll look great. Almost like a neon sign, which works for Miami.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    You may recall Notre Dame wore green uniforms with blue numbers as part of the Shamrock Series game at Fenway against Boston College in 2015. Looked great in photos, but was definitely hard to see the numbers from any distance.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    But none of these teams look bland and dull because of the (almost entirely unique) secondary (and, in some cases, tertiary) color pairings. Arizona - Red, Sand Baltimore - Orange Chicago - Silver Colorado - Purple Miami - Neon Blue, Pink/Red Pittsburgh - Yellow San Francisco - Orange And if you don’t think these colors are going to pop on the black background, the Heat’s City uniforms would like to have a word with you. The promotional tweets jump off the page, too. It’ll look really good on gray road uniforms, as well, provided the Marlins actually wear them instead of a heavy dose of alternates on the road.

    NFL Uniform rules

    Teams can now wear their alternate, throwback or color rush uniforms up to three times during the regular season. Was two previously.
  12. I feel confident in saying the idea originated with the manufacturer in both situations, but it’s not as if the manufacturer subsequently created uniforms without approval from the team or significant design input from the team. Not to unnecessarily merge threads/sports, but rather to use as example, I know a lot about Ohio State’s alternate uniforms and the design process behind each one. From the very beginning (2009), Nike suggested an alternate uniform and Ohio State contractually agreed to wear them for a certain number of years. It’s since just become a standard part of the contract for recruiting purposes, but the first few iterations (as well as the black set worn in 2015 and last weekend) involved a collaborative effort where both sides suggested different things, but it ultimately had to be approved by Ohio State — and a board that includes Archie Griffin and other high-ranking people in the athletic department. And now, Ohio State is simply contractually obligated to wear at least one alternate per year and tells Nike exactly want it wants to do. I understand things don’t always work the same across leagues and/or sports, but I feel confident in saying there’s no way Nike is forcing designs on a team unless the higher-ups simply don’t care or have said they would take whatever was presented.

    Logo Identification (Cougar? Wildcat?)

    Reverse image search doesn’t help, since I assume you’re referring to the Foothill Cougars (which have two different color versions of said logo). It does look familiar, though, particularly the whiskers.

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    I once owned Randy Moss, Derrick Burgess, Lamont Jordan, Jamarcus Russell and Darren McFadden jerseys. I probably would have bought Khalil Mack, Amari Cooper and Derrick Carr, too, but I stopped buying/wearing jerseys (and donated everything I owned) before they entered the league. Luckily, that was all balanced with Charles Woodson and Tim Brown jerseys, which could still be worn without protest. My most obscure jerseys were Troy Smith (Ravens), Sammy Sosa (Orioles) and Rashad McCants (Timberwolves), though.
  15. I was speaking about Nike, though, since the initial comment was “what [Nike is] gonna do the Yankees once [they] get ahold of MLB” and most of the conversation (or rather complaining) in this thread and the NBA thread revolves around the idea that Nike is the sole reason why teams currently look the way they do. I used Boston as an example, too, because the team has been pretty conservative when it comes to uniform design and it was another manufacturer that ushered in the Celtics’ gray and black-accented uniforms.
  16. But how is Nike be responsible when Celtics wore gray uniforms, as well as uniforms with black accents, before the company was the NBA’s manufacture?
  17. True, but the result of the final product ultimately falls on the team. They can either allow Nike to do whatever they want or limit their influence to the addition of a few alternate uniforms without any bold and/or off-brand designs. Just look at the Celtics and their Statement and City uniforms as a prime example.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    That’s correct. The City of Washington and the City of Georgetown we’re both once located within the District of Columbia’s physical limits, but have since been incorporated into one city that covers the entire district (formally known as the District of Columbia, but also commonly referred to as Washington, DC or Washington DC). Before that time, all mail sent to someone in the latter was addressed to Georgetown, DC, which is now just a neighborhood within the aforementioned single city.
  19. Imagine thinking Nike has the final say on these designs and that it’s not a collaborative effort between the company’s designers and the teams.

    Unique Team Names?
  21. I understand the Cowboys’ long history of wearing white at home, but the blue jersey is a far superior look and should be worn more often. As mentioned above, it’s a few tweaks away from being perfect (double outline, mostly). It’s too bad they’ll never have consistent blues and consistent grays throughout both the home and road sets.

    2019 MLB Changes

    Ohio does not claim Cincinnati or its disgusting chili. Might as well call it Kentucky.

    Unpopular Opinions

    I like the Nike swoosh on NBA jerseys — or the maker’s mark on any uniform, for that matter. That includes the New Era flag on MLB caps.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Idaho State-Portland State. NCAA rules require 1. the road team to wear white unless the home team requests to wear white and the road team agrees or 2. if the home team agrees for the road team to wear a colored jersey that contrasts. Both situations have to be in writing prior to the game, but it appears there was some miscommunication.

    Looks like Ben Simmons was hanging out with my huskies and needs a lint roller.
