  1. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    I grew up in Nashville and was a young kid before the Titans relocated. Back then on most Sundays you were guaranteed to see the Cowboys on the NFC network and the Dolphins on the AFC network. I was a big Dolphins fan prior to the arrival of the Titans. As you mention, the Cowboys are still popular in Memphis.

    As a Titans fan, I'm most intrigued by the gray/silver yoke there after they showed the same two tone blue yokes. In a perfect world the Titans should have a fairly austere design because their colors alone are so fantastic. I would have greatly preferred solid columbia blue numerals with that new typeface. It would have looked a lot stronger than white numerals with light blue trim. My bet is the helmet will be the big surprise as it hasn't been shown.
  3. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    I'm going to disagree with the person about the Chattanooga Lookouts. I think it could easily work on the MLB level.

    You seem to know things. How prominently is the red featured in this new set and logos? Based on your post, I'm guessing the numerals and stripes are heavily Columbia blue. I really hope the silver is more of a non-shiny dark gray. I'm with you, a dark gray/silver primary would be very cool, it would be a very unique look.

    I've been a big advocate for this. Columbia helmet, gray facemask. Navy jersey, solid columbia numerals, greek meander as shoulder stripes. White or navy pants, with greek meander down the sides. Do it.

    As a Titans fan, I hope this logo is the direction they are heading. They use this font in their social media, and it would be great if it was universally applied to numerals on jerseys. Red should only be on the flames. Two-tone blue with silver is what the Titans should be. I
  7. I'm extremely impressed with everything the Corpus Christi Hooks do. Their 70's fauxback set is so good that it's actually better than their actual set. The Blue Ghosts set is executed perfectly. How amazing is the CC logo in that Blue Ghosts set? I really like the Tarpons set as well. Three of the hats are fine. The light blue doesn't fit the rest of the set. Simon studio did a great job of giving the Tampa team their own identity while it's easy to see it's a Yankees affiliate.

    I love the look they had on Sunday. It's by far the best combination in the current set. The Titans should never wear navy pants at home with their current set. Improve the helmet stripe and the uniform font and it'd be perfect. One kinda crazy idea I had for the Titans is to combine elements of the two latest Packers throwbacks. Home-Light blue helmet. Navy uniform. Light blue shoulder yokes, keep their current white pants.For the front of the jersey, put the numerals(colored navy)inside a light blue shield with three stars. The numerals on the back would be light blue with no trim..the shield would have the meander pattern on it's outside boundary. The road uniform- White, light blue shoulder yokes. navy shield with three stars, and the number in light blue. navy numerals on back with light blue trim. navy pants.
  9. Tennessee Titans Redesign (Uni Watch Challenge)

    As a Titans fan this is the closest concept to what I've had in my mind! I've felt like the greco-roman pattern should be on the sleeves and pants. I've also wanted a light blue helmet. Bravo on these two fronts! Only thing I'd change is the helmet logo. I see nothing wrong with keeping the flaming thumbtack. I would like to see what the road would look like with navy numerals and light blue trim.
  10. Agreed, they need to find a way to keep fauxback pig and work it into their every day look. Put an'LV' on the hat and change the colors and it should be good to go.
  11. I like the Pig on the BBQ hat. As a fauxback it seems strange to me to have a different name for the team and one would think this is an Orioles affiliate by the looks of the hat.
  12. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    As a Titans fan I'm hopeful. I love the font they've been using in their social media. A greek pattern with the numerals actually matching the font of the wordmark would be outstanding. The Titans have so much potential for an iconic look. They have a great name and colors. I'm really excited to see what they do. As long as the home jersey isn't monochrome, it's an upgrade. My hopes: Helmet Light blue helmet, gray facemask. Flaming thumbtack as the logo. Home jersey. navy jersey, solid light blue or silver numerals light blue pants with the greek pattern down the sides in navy.. Away jersey Navy numerals,light blue trim. Navy pants with the greek pattern in light blue..
  13. Could the Rays be moving to Las Vegas?

    BeerGuy- Hey man I live in Tucson as well. I'm originally from Nashville, so it's good to see another Preds fan in this town. I'd love to see Tucson get AAA again but there are a lot of things that work against it as mentioned. The weather is the number one obstacle, extreme heat and the monsoons would present a challenge. Traffic is a nightmare going east to west at all times. Finding a truly convenient location that doesn't inconvenience half your potential customers is an enormous challenge. It's also a very strange town in many ways, easily the most apathetic city I've ever seen. Personally I love the level of complacency as it makes for an extremely pleasant place to live without the rat race vibe. Unless it's U of A related, it will be difficult to get people excited. Tucson is its own little world.
  14. Could the Rays be moving to Las Vegas?

    I was in Vegas last week and it was surprising how strongly the 51's were showing their affiliation with the Mets. There were Met posters all over the stadium and all the workers wore Mets gear of some kind. The sports talk radio guys were saying it is a done deal that the 51's will get a new stadium in Summerlin. Obviously it's absurd to have the Mets in Vegas and surely the 51's would prefer to affiliate with a team that is more regional. Who's a good fit for Las Vegas? The Padres seem content in El Paso. The Dodgers aren't leaving OKC. The Angels seem entrenched in Salt Lake. I think it'd be great for the Diamondbacks to move down from Reno and try to generate interest in a market that they could hypothetically build a decent fan-base.

    I'm a Nashville native so I can tell you that 1. is somewhat true but baseball is a big deal anywhere in the states. A MLB franchise would have lots of support. Number 2. is true, although the Braves were probably more popular in Nashville than in Atlanta itself in the 90s. Now that they aren't the juggernaut they once were, their level of support has subsided considerably. You are correct that they would be eating into others' secondary territory but I don't really see why the Braves are entitled to East TN or St. Louis is to West TN/KY. Both of those teams and the Reds for that matter already have plenty of secondary areas to draw from and could still do so from those areas even with a Nashville franchise. If the Nashville franchise was an American League team, I think there would be no reason they couldn't all coexist.
