  1. Yep. I know for the Mets they actually let the starting pitcher select the uniforms every game. I guess this plays into the oddness and superstitious nature of pitcher too. You want them to be as comfortable as possible up there right down to the uniforms. But yea the players would go out and think they look "fresh" and like "fire" in some Oregon Ducks monstrosity Another way of thinking about it, they're in some very similar uniforms (home, road & practice) very often. Mixing it up with monochrome even once makes it feel like casual Friday to them

    It's not an abject disaster, but it is a dulling down of a nice look. I think they'll go back to the gold socks soon.

    Strange times. I remember all of that and I just couldn't believe the Flyers iconic orange was just...out of the rotation? People like the black jerseys but I mean who was asking for them to be the permanents? For them the orange phase out only lasted a year as by 2002-2003 they got an orange alternate. But then again with the first RBK rollout they ditched orange for good in 2007-2008 and went with a black home jersey. Finally in 08-09 when alternates were reintroduced the Flyers went with a mid 70's inspired jersey, white nameplate. It was so well received you just knew from day 1 that would be the permanent home uni soon. That black horse head jersey for Calgary was terrible and again, who was clamoring for that to be the permanent homes? To me the Flames still look like a mess. They don't belong in black in any way. I don't like any of the piping. They need conventional, horizontal hem stripes. They bring back the classic look as an alternate and it is beloved. Extremely well received. People are begging for you to go back to the classic Flames look. Do they? No
  4. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    And he only became an NHL superstar at what 29? His first big year was 1993-1994. Back then it was rare to see an NHL player, goalie or skater, produce great season after the age of 32. Hasek was known as this talented but weird/flakey guy and few thought he'd become this otherwordly puckstopper and bona fide #1.

    Beautiful, solid look. The below jersey eventually was raised from 3rd to permanent road...and while it's not bad it's something that should've been kept as an alternate. Don't like the pointy shoulders

    Maybe the success of the team enhances it a bit? I always saw them as purely average in every way. And I don't think there will ever be a fulltime return to the old red Pete Patriot stuff. Though the whole Flying Elvis thing I never got. I never looked at that logo and saw Elvis. I think they will change things up a bit once Brady retires as to usher in a new era, but I doubt much is changed.

    6-0, back then the Pats had a nightmarish rookie kicker named Missin Scott Sisson. 0-2 on his FG attempts.

    Lucky I was wearing an extra large piece of the true cross today.

    It doesn't but it is very rare to have a nice uniform without the waist stripe to properly balance out thee jersey and frame the logo. The Flyers had themselves a good jersey here. Good, not great. The 70's look was without a doubt great.

    I just don't understand why anybody would've ever thought NHL jerseys would look good with that kind of piping and no hem stripes. And the NHL not learning from the NFL's foibles with the fat toilet seat collars. Though yes the half is definitely more tolerable. My brother in law is a Chicago Blackhawks fan (not a bandwagon guy either) He said he wouldn't wear the new jersey if he got it for free.
  11. Something about that sort of rubbed me the wrong way. The Chiefs belong to Kansas City now, and you had them playing games as the KC Chiefs with the state of Texas on their helmets. Same with the Jets. I mean among the Jets fan base even those that go back to the Titans days...there really was never any nostalgia or clamoring to bring back that uniform. And the Broncos one was so aesthetically hideous that they should've just let them play in the 1968 uniforms when the D made it's debut on the helmet
  12. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I kind of liked their original uni's. It was a new, modern set but not overwhelmingly zany The helmet was perfect and never needed to be touched. If they were still playing right now in their 1995 uni's with some tweaks along the way it would still look like a solid set that belongs in the league. The Jaguar may have had to be removed from the upper arm and put elsewhere as sleeves started to disapear from the game.

    I thought the Jets did (slightly) lighten their green this year?

    I'm a Jets fan and I hate when they go green on green, but overall the game didn't look too bad since the Browns white on white is really not that offensive and probably their best and most low key look. Still I think their 2010 game looked better
  15. New Florida Gators Unifrom

    We've seen so much of this zany stuff that honestly it has no affect or impact on me anymore, but clearly it does with impressionable kids. It's all the same crud, same visor to try and look intimidating as they strike the same hand over hand sticky glove pose. Just so *yawn* at this point. I really don't notice anymore nor do I care to fight it. The stupid kids love it so let them dress in their clownsuits.
