    I'm pretty neutral on which shade of blue they go with going forward, as long as they stick with the yellow. I think most fans prefer royal, and I don't blame them. But navy has the advantage of having represented Milwaukee teams for much longer and looking less like the Cubs. This particular uniform though, is the epitome of the best of a bad situation. It might be the best example of their current identity, but it has to be compared to the fauxbacks, which blow it out of the water.
  2. Memorial Day 2018: MLB Wearing Green and Camo This Weekend

    Ugh... enough with these cynical cash grabs! The hell ever happened to just wearing a patch?
  3. Choking / Cursed Franchises

    I just don't see any of this. No matter what, whenever two teams are in the same city, one is always little brother. The White Sox have been around for over 100 years and named for Chicago every bit as much as the Cubs, but the Cubs have always been much more popular. Especially in the suburban areas you're putting so much importance on. Besides, it's not like Brooklyn hasn't already proven itself to be able to support a major pro franchise entirely on its own. I say wait until they have a team worth supporting again before writing them off. It's not like the Knicks didn't have attendance woes during their dark periods.
  4. Y'know... I don't actually hate this. I would hate to see some of the teams that wear brighter colors try it. But this is convincing me that white (or maybe gray?) pinstripes on black or navy could actually work.
  5. San Francisco 49ers Concept Logo

    It's a decent start. But the different colored pickaxes is triggering my OCD.
  6. Especially considering Milwaukee's prominent place in the original AA. So many missed opportunities. But given the politics of the area, it's not at all surprising. Most people who don't live in Milwaukee proper literally hate Milwaukee.
  7. I honestly don't understand this rationale. The sports world is full of logos thay would never be adopted today, but endure because of the success or tradition they're associated with. The Brewers are being foolish by not going all in on the BiG with all the cache it's been proven to have with the fans. Especially when the "modern" logo is looking downright creaky these days.
  8. Vintage College Mascot Logos

    I never knew this! So Richie Cunningham's red & white UWM varsity jacket on Happy Days was actually historically accurate?
  9. 49ers Throw It Back to the 94ers, Unveil Alternate Uniform

    Gold jerseys are always hit or miss. Lately, it seems like the modern materials can't facilitate a proper metallic gold, which comes off looking more like khaki.
  10. Houston Astros Logo Concept

    I could see an Astros farm club actually using this. Nice work!

    Look no further than their 1969 AL expansion mates, the Brewers, if you want an example of how diluted and messy it can get when you move away from a proven brand for no reason.

    Point taken, but the other problem is that the Monarchs trademark is owned by the Negro League HOF, and is a significant source of its revenue. For the Royals to take on the Monarchs identity, they would have make it worth the NLHOF's while, which would probably include funding and maintaining the museum.

    Kansas City's American Association club was known as the Blues. I always thought Royals was the perfect name as it alludes to both the Monarchs and the Blues.

    Purple wasn't very popular locally once the 90s trend was over. Meanwhile, these were going for $50 on eBay during their last year of the previous (red & green) uniforms. I was willing to give the current identity a chance. But as time goes on, it becomes more and more obvious they dropped the ball.
