  1. Davey Nelson has passed away.

    The responses have been amazing, a real tribute to his life. He will obviously be missed
  2. MLB changes 2018?

    Better not. Road grays are always preferable to softball tops.
  3. Las Vegas 51s to Get New Name, New Everything in 2019

    As noted above, there are at least five additional teams whose affiliation agreement is expiring. That’s six opportunities to move. In the past, Las Vegas is the one affiliate everyone tried to avoid but one would have to be stuck with. That is changing now with their new facilities.
  4. 2018/19 Soccer Kits

    That's how we felt about Arsenal and Nike. There were some stinkers, but even the worst Nike kits were better than the dreck Puma dished out.
  5. 2018/19 Soccer Kits

    Adidas introduced heathered shirts last year. Not only are these bad designs, but they're also behind the curve.
  6. NHL 2018-19

    Those stupid things always remind me of Deal of the Century. Language slightly NFSW,
  7. The Mets haven't used a wordmark with those letters. They've used something similar, but not the actual letters. Because what works in a logo doesn't always work in a wordmark.
  8. 2018/19 Soccer Kits

    This concept on the current Adidas template looks good. I'd take this one in a heartbeat.
  9. I don't. Some lettermarks don't work in the context of a full word, they are designed to work on their own. Some of the best, indeed. I don't want anyone to force a font that would incorporate these letterforms into a wordmark.

    No, Arsenal's deal with Puma expires at the end of next season, and they're reportedly negotiating with Nike and Adidas to take over for the 2019-2020 season. We get one more crummy Puma shirt, and this could well be it.

    That's not a concept. Footy Headlines makes their renderings based off leaked descriptions, and they're usually pretty good..
  12. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    NYCFC will build a soccer-specific stadium. And yet, most of the seats will he more than 20 feet away from the pitch. 😁
  13. Toronto FC are your 2017 MLS Cup champions, which puts a cap on the 2017 season and it’s time for a new thread. So... who ya got?
  14. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    The Jags’ double-outlined numbers have been uniformly hideous in the past. A single-outline would improve this set, a douple-outline is worse than none at all.
  15. Nah, not really. I like the green roof. It also happens to be a great place to watch a basketball game. If only the team itself was worthy of it.
  16. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Nope, this would be a massive downgrade. One-color outlines? Sure. I'd prefer gold, but black would work. Two-color outlines are too busy; the Dolphins just showed us that.
  17. North American Pro Soccer 2018

    I don’t know but I highly doubt it. Randall’s Island is even farther away from the nearest subway - a half-hour walk, easily. And depending where on the island, possibly much more.
  18. NFL 2018 changes

    And a reminder that players really shouldn't be consulted on uniform designs. They come and go, but good designs will outlast them.
  19. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Eh, different sports develop different aesthetics. Nobody minds a new baseball club adopting a traditional look because that’s the sport’s aesthetic. Nobody minds an old soccer club unveiling a crazy, modern clash kit because that’s the sport’s aesthetic. Expecting people to treat different sports the same way seems a fool’s errand.
  20. I was with you right up until that part. The only way a second basketball team was going to work here was if they leaned into the Brooklyn theme. That's how they separate themselves from the Knicks. And Barclays is a huge part of that. Problem is that you also have to be really good. Or even decent. You can't suck. And for all the successes the Nets have had off the court in Brooklyn, from the merchandise to their community outreach, it's ultimately for naught when then on-court product is so lousy. They find a way to turn that around, and create a team worthy of everything else they've built, and they could absolutely eclipse the Knicks in this city.
  21. Las Vegas 51s to Get New Name, New Everything in 2019

    That's actually not bad. Lean into the neon/casino imagery, and you might have something there.
  22. Minor League Baseball News

    Absolutely. There's still the question as to how well the team develops players in those new facilities, but they will automatically be a much better option than now, where they are an active detriment to the players the parent club is forced to send them.
  23. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Absolutely. Nothing is off-limits. Your tie is ugly too.
