  1. NFL 2017 changes?

    I generally agree although I do think the tinted-visor rule is out of place. I've never been a fan of teams without black in their color scheme having black anywhere in the uniform, and that includes cleats. Might be unpopular but I'd much rather teams like the Bears and Pack use white cleats. I've had no trouble reading the Lions numbers, which is weird cause my eye sight ain't the greatest.
  2. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Phoenix: Good: Great color scheme, return of purple on home unis, removal of 90's faux-back burst. Bad: Silver trim around the numbers on the road uni, over-serifed wordmark. Nuggets: Good: Everything. Bucks: Minimal changes so they're still decent.
  3. Minnesota Timberwolves

    I think the Wolves do the Bullets better than the Wizards, simply due to the fact that the numbers don't overlap the stripes (a big pet-peeve of mine). From that aspect I like what the Wolves did. For the uniform overall however, I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. Like others have mentioned, it badly needs green (especially since they're creating a green uni, the alt. will look out of place with the color being used minimally). But I like how they modernized without going completely insane or nuts. For those saying that they look like the Mavs, well, they did when they entered the league in 1989, so I don't consider it that big of a deal.
  4. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Why should only the Lakers utilize a drop shadow? 'Cause they were the first to use it? That's not a very compelling argument IMO. As long as the shadow isn't too gaudy or a complete copy of another uniform (*cough* 90s Heat *cough*), a drop shadow is just another element that can enhance it. I for one think the Sixers shadow works well and adds red where it is sorely needed.
  5. Indiana Pacers New Uniforms, Alternate Logos

    These uniforms work. Having both the location and team names on the uniforms is indeed different and caused me to double take, but it's not bad or grotesque. The Pacers updated the right way. I also think it might be time to accept that this is where piping and side panels are headed, in terms of tradition. There might be a few teams that go for the symmetric, full design, but I see most teams trending toward the gimmicky stuff.
  6. NFL 2017 changes?

    I'm of the opinion that none of the '17 New Era caps will look all that endearing, but I can live with these two. The Falcons' throwback logo looks nice against the red, and the star of Dallas works nicely against the silver grey. I still would prefer New Era kept the caps they sold back in 2012, however I find some of their gimmicks to be decent. I quite liked their draft caps this year:

    It's called business. You make one unique ugly cap in 2012 and call it "limited edition." Fans eat it up. You discontinue the set and release a new line 2013 that's even more hideous than the old line. Slap on the "limited edition" tag again and then the sheep come calling home. Rinse and repeat for subsequent years. Not a new formula and will no doubt be repeated in the future.
  8. NFL 2017 changes?

    Like others have stated, the Falcons uniforms are dated and are the subject of numerous playoff failures (namely the 2012 NFC Championship and Super Bowl LI). But as long as Arthur Blank owns the team they will never change. He loves their current look 'cause, well, he handpicked it himself. Look at the gorgeous sheen on the pants! If there was one thing Reebok and the previous manufacturers got right over Nike, it was the sheen on the uniforms and pants (it also helped that they were able to match colors).
  9. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The three teams bolded had grotesque uniforms that would be laughed at if not worn in the 1980s. The Nuggets were especially bad. I know there's a lot of affinity for the rainbow uniforms, but...they suck. I thought they did it right by changing their scheme in 1994. The Pacers 80s uniforms were inferior to both the early 90s and late 90s uniforms. That white stripe across the chest ruins the look. The Bucks were not as bad as the other two but they were inferior to the home and road uniforms that succeeded them. Now the 90s alts are pretty bad, but it's not bad enough to drag the whole set down. I didn't even get to other teams with awful uniforms like the Cavaliers. Eek.
  10. Bell and the Steelers were unable to come to terms at the deadline. Half of me is shocked, the other half is not; Bell wanted more guaranteed money than the Steelers were offering, and neither side was budging. It's gonna be a crucial year for #26.
  11. NHL Preds, Sens & Ducks

    The Ducks logo design is brilliant and a great mash of their two eras. However, I'm not privy toward the double orange, it makes the concept feel too bright. I also have an extreme pet-peeve of teams using shields when their identity does not require one...like the Ducks. You did a bang up job on the Sens. The logo looks is slightly too cartoony for my taste, but still good overall. I don't really care for the Nashville logo (I like their current version) but your uniforms are well designed.
  12. AOA's Football Tweaks - Los Angeles Rams 7/25

    Unpopular opinion is unpopular. I think you did a nice job of merging their two identities (70s and 90s). I still prefer the current block numbers when compared to the serifs, but over all a good look.
  13. Packers unveil "Titletown District" logo

    The logo is awful. It reminds me of the old TBS logo, but far worse. Still wondering who's gonna visit Green Bay in February.
  14. NHL 2017-18

    Las Vegas Canucks circa 1994? In any event, as fitting as this uniform would be, I think Vegas got it right. I think the main reason for the disappointment for the uniforms is the addition of red and the grey home uniforms (probably because grey is such a drab color).
  15. NHL 2017-18

    Outside of the striping on the sleeves and waist (it should be thicker like their previous iterations) the Adidas uniforms clean up nicely. The brightening of the orange invites the opportunity to darken the blue - the entire palette would be too sharp if they had brightened the orange and kept royal. These Kings uniforms were actually designed well IMO. No inconsistent piping, no weird Edge blotches on the underarms and sides, and a traditional look. While Kings fans might not like their previous color palette (and the fact that they look like the Sacramento Kings), this was the one time Reebok didn't completely f*** up.
