  1. Kind of embarrassing if they're going the cheap route, considering they're going through the motions of an MLS bid. And asking Indianapolis to buy them a new stadium. This really oughtn't be the time to sacrifice your club's identity for the sake of a few thousand dollars.
  2. Indy Eleven in the NASL is taking the unusual step of changing uniform suppliers during the season. They unveiled their new Adidas kits a couple days ago: Not bad, but they've lost the distinctive, if subtle, checkerboard design that their inaugural kits had. Apparently losing the checkers didn't go over so well, because he next day they put a statement on their website: Whoops. The problem is that the Adidas teamware catalogue does have checkered jerseys. I worked this up in a couple minutes: Wonder why they couldn't just buy off the teamwear catalogue? Or is this a case of the club not realizing how much its fans were attached to that particular design element?
  3. Nike really wanted to make changes, and that was as much as they could talk the Rooneys into.
  4. I'm not suggesting getting rid of it altogether, just changing the presentation a little. Which they've already done; this particular design isn't written in stone.
  5. I obviously understand the symbolism and meaning behind it, but think the Hillsborough graphic leaves something to be desired. Maybe if they used the memorial flame by itself?
  6. Indeed. And what's up with the throwback helmet?
  7. Sometimes the question is its own answer.
  8. Like this? I loved this look. I'm a huge fan of double-blue as a color scheme, but I think the gray sets off the Brewers' royal-and-gold color scheme better than powder blue.
  9. Yes, the M always had a white outline on that patch. But the top jacket, FYI, is a contemporary custom job.
  10. I think that the block M isn't distinctive enough to work today (not even if the Braves had stuck around). But it could easily be modified in some way just as the Astros' H-star was, and could work then.
  11. Bland? Generic? I think there's a lot of ways to criticize the BiG, but wouldn't use either of those. You can say it's too whimsical, too much a product of its time, too clever by half, insufficiently dignified, inappropriately uses the nickname initial, any number of things. But I'm not seeing either "bland" or "generic" unless stylized initials aren't themselves identifier enough. And if that's the case then you're going to have to level those same criticisms against the Yankees, Dodgers, Giants, and many more.
  12. I think that's actually a bit more confusing, actually.
  13. Good catch - that's a bootleg. And not a very good one. The script is off and the numbers are far too big, as well. Compare with these gamers:
  14. Nah, it moved in early 1970.
