  1. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Coaches not players ... but it's a two-fer. Sorry Sabre, I see now that you were first .....
  2. Name That Font!

    Looked easy, but no ....... Of course your jersey is TWO fonts, the A and C are both different, and the 'MACK' is a narrow variant. These have 'inlines' but of course that can be fixed ..... Couple other maybes ...... Athletica Clean Factoria Bold Good luck!
  3. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    Can't argue with that, you are correct. My mistake was admitting that was my Prime Criteria ....... However, if my list is INVALID for that reason, then ............... . . . shouldn't a set of criteria formulated to EXCLUDE the Broncos also be invalid? I know I know ...... you never SAID that was a critera, so taking you at your word - which I'm glad to do because you made a list: To the extent your criteria says "Several eras..." then the 49ers and Patriots should be out. I read your 'addendum' on mini-eras, but I don't believe this recent period constitutes a "mini-era." Good list! But with just one criteria, it's not really an 'Elite List,' but rather a list OF THAT criteria.

    "Invalid" ... really? How DARE you! Problem is, including the 1950s and early 60s means the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions have numerous Championships as well. One criteria I did not mention is there must be some measure of exclusivity. If half the teams qualify, it's not "elite" by definition (and is therefore invalid). My list is Super Bowl era, which is what I know, what I'm comfortable with. Make your own list!
  5. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    Yes, you're right ... I must have been thinking of the pants only. It was merely an example of how the ALL-color, ONLY-color uniform design could be accomplished without much trouble..... It can be done, though and look pretty darn good:
  6. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    Much more similar than I would have guessed ... but what I missed was the comparison the poster (you?) was making re: Elite Franchise List .... does he think the Bears, or the Cardinals, or Neither, or Both deserved inclusion in the list of "ELITE FRANCHISES." Again, this "LIST" of mine is entirely arbitrary, and is selected based on criteria that I alone choose, criteria sure to result in the BRONCOS being included as charter members of that LIST. As before - I heartily encourage ALL to whom these letters shall come - formulate a LIST of your own, with criteria of your own choosing. Feel free to choose criteria that result in the EXCLUSION of the Broncos if you remain hostile to my list. Please state your criteria so invite comment. CRITERIA for INCLUSION: Franchise History Overall onfield success (stress recent successes and consistence making playoffs) Minimum one Super Bowl victory Ownership Stability & Influence N F L ELITE FRANCHISES . . . . .NEW YORK GIANTS . ..WASHINGTON REDSKINS . . . . .DALLAS COWBOYS . . . . . . DENVER BRONCOS . . .NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS .. . . .PITTSBURGH STEELERS 49ers nearing re-instatement after DeBartolo troubles Seahawks' petitioning to make list, nearing inclusion

    Agreed, and in fact many teams treated it just like 'Throwback.' And that's the problem with Color Rush, the lack of uniformity from one team's design to another team's design. Examples: Broncos jersey below is identical to the last iteration of the uniform generation that ended in 1996 - add to that the same helmet logo and their 'Color Rush' was nothing more than a throwback with orange pants. The Cowboys and Bengals apparently ignored the term "color" in Color Rush when they actually subtracted color from their standard duds to over-embrace the white ... and the fat white borders around the Chargers's iconic shoulder bolts made the same mistake ... after all, we know their old AFL uniforms had no white trim between the light blue jersey and shoulder bolts, nor between the yellow pants and the bolts up their legs (easy....) , , , , , .. . . . . . COLOR RUSH should be just that - a rush of color. NO WHITE, just color. The Jets', Colts' and Raiders' mono-chromatic imagination gaps might exempt them, but every other team should have complied, or NFL Properties should have followed these specs when designing and selecting each teams' uniforms. It wasn't hard, in fact some teams - maybe half or more - did follow these specifications. Moreover, it's nothing new to Michigan and Southern Cal, both these schools have LONG sported just such designs. The only white you'll find on a Trojan or a Wolverine is the mandatory road jerseys and lower socks. (Just realized they're also the only two teams that beat Colorado this year - wearing these same uniforms in Ann Arbor and Los Angeles) . . . . . . . . . . My point is that an NFL Feature Promotion like "Color Rush" should have avoided hodge-podge mix-n-match at all costs. Making these specifications mandatory would have ensured a "uniform" look every week ... and probably most important to the League, would have resulted in far more brisk sales of 'Color Rush' memorabilia. I loved our 1996-era uniforms, but COLOR RUSH deserved something different. Borrowing from Syracuse, here's my proposal:
  8. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    The Bears are the Arizona Cardinals ...? With or without a pre-Challenger championship - either way - I don't understand the comparison. And yet, seven people ... SEVEN PEOPLE ... like it. Now THIS part of your post I am down with! I'm still thinking I should stand up for my own "Elite List," but this part of your post won me over ... I love those stream-of-conscious, for logic read between-the-lines posts ... so how about we settle all this by agreeing that: "The Chicago Bears are a consensus elite franchise." Works for me .... As a Bears fan you can confirm that the Packers are an elite franchise?

  11. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    Bears? In the past five years, they've had three head coaches, two GMs, five OCs, three DCs, and countless assistants. For eight years they've doubled down again and again on a big-armed, empty-headed quarterback, and the Halas-McCaskey family's stewardship has made the Bears the 10th most profitable franchise, despite residing in the 3rd largest market. And they're consistently ranked among the least influential ownership groups in the League. Other than all that, they're almost in. Packers, well ... they have 4 Lombardi Trophies, and they had Lombardi himself. But, for different reasons than the Bears, their ownership group has very little if any influence in the league. League ownership considers the Packers a kind of "novelty" franchise. I guess you can call me 'asinine' if you must, but my criteria is spelled out right there, and neither the Bears or Packers are even close. It's just a silly list, make your own ... I'll give you some feedback
  12. College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    Until 14 months ago, I thought the Uniform Renaissance of the past decade had passed my school by. I resigned myself to Colorado's black and gold - beautiful in the sunlight, but under the lights it could get kinda 'Saints-Super-Domey' dark and dour. Even worse, the Missouri Tigers - who wore mirror image duds in my youth - they designed an extraordinary new look, still my favorite overall redesign of any uniform in any sport. But alas, their new gold was tinted orange, commensurate with their tiger-morphic overhaul. Left us in the dust. Then some genius in Beaverton - he got us back to the basics. Back to the OFFICIAL SCHOOL COLORS ... back to Gold and SILVER. And damned if that didn't make all the difference ................... . . . .. . I've always appreciated Phil Knight holding the Buffs and Broncos near and dear, but never has his attention paid off like this, this is amazing: The latest 2017 national recruiting rankings list Colorado 19th (Rivals), 24th (ESPN) and 25th (Scout), which is ASTONISHING seeing that until six weeks ago we were a laughingstock. And ... the recruiters tell us every.single.signee has mentioned the uniforms. WIth the onfield renaissance leading the way, it's a multi-color mix-and-match wonderland: FOUR colors of pants THREE jersey colors THREE helmet colors We're 6-2 now -- and three of our last four are in Boulder. Only roadie is against Arizona .... so there's a VERY realistic chance we win the South. Keeping with the thread title, although the Mix-and-Match started last season, there's ONE mix we've been saving for 2016: SILVER-BLACK-SILVER ... it's on tap for the regular season finale against Utah in Boulder .... and a real chance at a 10-2 record .... 10-3 after a Pac-12 Championship Game loss to Washington (hey, I'm not drunk), and you can COLOR me hap-hap-happy!

    Didn't know that ... the Steelers are among a handful of franchises on my List of Elite Franchises* ... That information sounds decidedly historical, though. Hope the poverty wasn't a factor in their release of Johnny Unitas in 1956. - Membership on my list of "Elite Franchises" requires all of the following: Superior Ownership, Fanbase and History, along with Consistent Onfield Excellence (no 7+ year playoff droughts). - The List:: Steelers, Giants, Redskins, Cowboys, Broncos ... and Patriots, who were inducted 9 years ago. - 49ers dropped off 14 years ago with DeBartolo's felony convictions, and subsequent ownership chaos. Seahawks might be knocking on the door soon.

    There must be a story about why they sport the logo on the right side only ....?
