  1. NFL 2017 changes?

    Says the guy with the throwback Redskins logo as his avatar. Sorry - couldn't resist. :-)
  2. NFL 2017 changes?

    Why do they need a wordmark on the jersey front? I think it's needless clutter (see the above Eli Manning jersey for the slippery slope down which you can be led).
  3. So was I the only one who thought the Cowboys uniforms DIDN'T look good? I'm not a fan of the helmet, jersey and pants being three different colors (Steelers' road unis a notable exception due to longevity of the combo).
  4. I believe the article doesn't realize that the Cowboys ever wore blue over white.
  5. If it happened before the Super Bowl, it didn't happen.
  6. A question about the 1973-79 Cleveland Indians

    Let's add our name so people don't think we're Twins or something :-)
  7. their, not they are - sorry, I can't get past that. No, the regular number fonts aren't illegible. I'll paint with a broad brush - many color rush jerseys have colored numbers on colored jerseys. That combination is horrible for viewing by broadcasters and fans. By using a standard block font rather than anything else, you make the numbers as legible as possible. For normal jerseys, the contrast between number and jersey is greater, which allows for custom number fonts to be used and still be legible, relatively speaking. Certain numbers on certain fonts (hello, Philadelphia) are just flat out tough.
  8. It gives the possibility of making the numbers legible.
  9. USC Facemask & Jersey

    For awhile the USC facemask had a goldish tint to it. I thought we had talked about it here.
  10. Finally Splurged on a Replica '67 Saints Jersey

    Correct - I'm seeing a grey circle with a white dash.
  11. Finally Splurged on a Replica '67 Saints Jersey

    And now it is gone again. But yes - gorgeous!
  12. NFL 2017 changes?

    I was going to say 'because they don't care about the one helmet rule', but your answer is probably better. Strike the probably. It's better.
  13. I fail to see how liking gold pants requires you to want to wear all gold. I'm in Bruce's camp on this.
  14. NFL 2017 changes?

    I'd argue that if they wanted it to LOOK good, there was no need to change from regular uniforms.
  15. Uniwatch story on the Vikings' original uniform

    Yeah - we're probably done here. Oh - he said Finnish :-)
  16. Maybe because the "student-athletes" don't have legal representation in the form of a union like the NFLPA.
  17. Color blindness isn't seeing no color, it is certain colors looking the same. The predominant color blindness results in red and green looking the same. These two shades of blue are unaffected by any color blindness trait that I am aware of.
  18. Uniwatch story on the Vikings' original uniform

    This means that three of four NFC North teams (Bears, Packers, and now Vikings) had their colors chosen on the basis of a college-connection at the outset of the franchise. Bears - Illinois (Halas) Packers - Notre Dame (Lambeau) Vikings - Washington (Rose)
  19. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    And if it does, you can't do anything about it anyway :-)
  20. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Hey - I get it. You're fired up. Really we all are, since that's what brought us to this place in the first case. When news breaks, it will be here. It's all good :-)
  21. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    [sarcasm] Yes, but we've decided not to tell you. [/sarcasm] Patience. I know you want to know everything before it happens with this change. Anyone who is here will post anything that we hear here. If nothing new has been speculated or posted, it's a safe bet that no one has heard any new rumors or rumblings. Remember, typical unveilings are in the spring.
  22. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I like that rule, but I dislike dark helmet - white jersey - dark pants. Dark as in navy or black. That's where mono white is fine by me, and how the Steelers can be the outlier to this rule by going black - white - yellow.
  23. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    So don't wear the white pants with a colored jersey, or with the white jersey. When would you see them wearing them???
