  1. NFL 2017 changes?

    I'm not sure if it would fix what you're referring to, but it would seem that changing the Jets' white side shoulder panels to green would be a good start. The outer white stripe gets lost against it. The Bengals could help themselves tremendously by doing the same. The black panel on the ends of the shoulders are not good. Just make the whole thing orange and put black stripes on it. Having part of it orange with black stripes and then black with orange stripes is silly and hideous.

    They really should have gone with navy masks. The horns get lost in all that white. I thought it when the decision was made and feel more strongly about it now that I've seen them in action.

    It was their best look, but unfortunately, some franchises are averse to looking their best. One out in San Diego comes to mind.
  4. MLB Changes 2017

    Probably an unpopular opinion, but I think MLB started looking like Little Leaguers when they paired solid color jerseys with white and gray pants. Even the A's green over greens, the Pirates yellow over yellows, and the Indians Bloody Mary sets looked better. I've always felt that baseball uniforms should be the same color, jersey and pants, preferably white/white or gray/gray.

    I just don't get the love for the white helmets. I've always thought the best helmets were these:

    The addition of the vertical pants stripes down the legs really cluttered that set up. I liked the 1972-87 version much better. It's been said here many, many times, but for the sake of any newcomer who may be reading this, the Reds looked their best 1969-71, and it's a shame they didn't keep it forever, especially during their heydey of the 1970s.

    That Raiders helmet is a damned mess it what it is, as is going to be the case with just about every team that uses it. The Bengals equipment staff should have a grand old time with it. At the very least, the stripe needs to be cut at the breaks in the helmet, but even that won't save it. Is this design necessary to keep the players safe?

    Why not white pants? The shades of gold are off, but the gold over white could work for the Saints.

    HaHa, yes, you have perceived accurately, as I am a perfectionist to a great extent, and I appreciate your recognition of the effort I expended in getting these as correct as possible. But I suppose my perfectionism has its limits. I also appreciate the info. Never any offense taken in constructive criticism, and I'm amazed at how there's more to discover about logos, even after you think you have found all the answers.

    The new Rams helmet is bugging me because the horn stripe is too thin. So, I'm not sure if I'll buy one or make one myself. The Rams horns are a pain to cut without making a mistake, but I can usually get a good set within three or four tries.

    The two two-bar Chiefs helmets in my collection are customs, using the logo from this site, which also incorrectly uses it on the helmets... http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/list_by_team/162/Kansas_City_Chiefs/ Although now revealed as incorrect, it's not significant enough that I'll concern myself with it. If nothing else, it keeps them consistent with the factory ones.
  12. MLB Changes 2017

    It seems that many teams always throw back to the same era every time. With the Brewers, it going to be BiG. For my Reds, it's always either 1990 or 1975. How about giving the world another look at the 1968-71 beauties? The Padres always bring out the loud, colorful models and I've never seen them in their much better 1969 set. Astros? You just know it's going to be the rainbows every time, while their best set of 1971 goes ignored. I'm sure there are others.
  13. MLB Changes 2017

    I record the game, forward to the player intros, watch that, and then forward to parts where Reds players are shown in uniform. It's the only remaining interest I have in the game. They day they go to common uniforms for all players will be the last time I make a point to watch any part of the broadcast.
  14. Road Gray vs alternates: All-star game

    What did I miss? Are they going to start having all players wear the same uniform? I agree completely on the normal carp part, but disagree completely on all having the same uniform. The ONLY reason I have any part of the game on my TV is to fast-forward through the broadcast and see the Cincinnati Reds players in uniform. Take that away, and my interest goes from 20% to 0%. It is so disappointing to see the 1976 NL All Star photo, which contained nine men wearing the Cincinnati Reds uniform. Problem is, with the special 1976 caps, you have to look really hard to pick them out.

    Many of them were custom made. I bought complete sets of two bar helmets back when they could be had cheaply on ebay, then customized them. I haven't checked in a long time, but last time I did, the two bar sets were hard to find and expensive when you did. I got the feeling they weren't as popular as expected when they first released, so for a time, supply exceeded demand. That is no longer the case. (Note: I am referring to the "regular" two bar sets, not the 1969 throwback editions, which have always been rare and expensive, it seems.)
