    No comment. Worth pointing out that this vantage point doesn't exist anywhere else in the universe - this is a map squeezed and folded to fit the various subway lines in one graphic. This is what the city actually looks like: I really hate the MTA's subway map. I prefer a more elegant design, like Massimo Vignelli's or the Kickmap app.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    No. This is literally all we know: the Jets are getting new primary uniforms next year. Anything more than that is speculation. Colors, logos, style, modern/throwback/hybrid, we have no idea.

    Nitpick: they're not flamingos, they're white herons. Found only in South Florida. A nice local touch. Twice.

    NFL 2018 changes

    But this is intentional. The Cowboys got that way through manufacturer changes and laziness. Wasn't even that - the Cowboys created their different silvers because the various uniform materials displayed differently under different lighting conditions, and they wanted all the silvers to match on television. That meant greenish-silver pants. Television technical standards have changed, but people got used to seeing them as they are and there seems no appetite for changing them again so the colors match the way we're watching now.

    Yeah, it's cool, isn't it? I love that part of the design.

    Not me - I like this a lot more than re-treading another city's tired old identity. Besides, those trademarks are still owned by the NASL. Aside from the circular badge, Beckham's Miami club also trademarked different elements on their own - the shield, the sun, and the "M" monogram formed by the herons' legs. I think the shield works really well on its own, and I'd like to see that on the shirt.

    Indeed.

    To continue off-topic just a little longer, I think you may be conflating a couple things here. There's plenty of room for housing and retail and a stadium. But AirTrain? Yes, everybody in the whole city wants the AirTrain extended to LaGuardia. But that's not going to take up much room at all - we're talking two sets of tracks and a station,not that much real estate. NYCFC wasn't ever very serious about building a stadium at Belmont. And the Islanders' new arena at Belmont Park is about to start construction. You're right - it doesn't make sense. Which is why nobody has seriously proposed such a thing. Red Hook is too remote; any stadium needs to be on a subway line. Not the PATH, not the LIRR, and not the BQX (which is a great idea but probably a digression too far ). But no, nobody is suggesting a Red Hook stadium. Could be. But I'm not sure the AAF can afford to be as choosy as MLS has become.

    How many of those are throwbacks, though? Not quite the same thing.

    I'm not aware of anything prohibiting it. We were advocating for a while that NYCFC put its monogram on a clash kit instead of the full badge, and were told that was "a possibility". That being said, it's generally good branding to pick one and stick with it. Especially for a new club. But there's a reason that Arsenal, Man United, Juventus, Barcelona, and other major clubs stick to one.

    True enough. A dark pink could be considered too close to all-red like Toronto as well, especially under floodlights. I'm not sure how red/green color blindness works with shades like pink or Seattle's light green, but that's another possible problem. A clash kit just makes sense to avoid all these conceivable issues, even if it's rarely worn.

    That’s a good point. Their teal is the overarching identifier, which is why the T/W/B jersey/pants/socks combo is so very, very good. And why all their other looks are so bad.

    MLB changes 2018?

    In fairness, as @SFGiants58 noted, the A’s seem to have forgotten that themselves.

    Then it wouldn’t be a white elephant.

    They’re doing that. The list of potential owners who have identified themselves is under court seal, though, while the process plays out.
