  1. MLB 2016 Changes

    Looking good!
  2. Teal and orange would have been perfect for the Marlins.
  3. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    The silly one-helmet rule would prevent it, but it would be interesting to see the Bengals simulate the albino tiger for one game or, dare I say it, as a twice-a-year alternate...

    I hope this gimmick is short-lived. Having them fall apart or fall off every game would be a good start.

    In that case, wear solid brown caps with a gold SD on them. If they must have the yellow panel caps (which I do like, by the way), then spring for $40 per player and buy a second helmet for everyone.

    I like the Padres brown helmets (would rather have shiny than matte, though) and I like the Padres brown caps, but why are they wearing a mismatch? Why not make the caps and helmets match?
  7. NFL Changes - 2016

    Flaming thumbtack. I've never heard it called that, but it fits. I've always called it the flaming ball thing. It's ugly by any name.

    The Padres revenues are only about $250,000,000. Helmets cost money. We're talking about an extra $40 per player here. Where are you going to find an extra $40 per player in a quarter billion dollar budget?
  9. Variations and inconsistencies in team branding

    Kentucky has used a combination of their old "UK" logo and the new "UH" logo this year. I assume next year they'll go with the UH full time, along with the horrible paper clip remover, or two birds embraced, or whatever it's supposed to be.
  10. Variations and inconsistencies in team branding

    What happened there is they simply arched the letters from the wordmark they used in their first three seasons 1968-70. Although I'm assuming someone (erroneously) approved its use for the gumball helmets of the time, the team or the league never used that style for other licensed merchandise or as "the" representation for the team for a given era, like the others I posted.
  11. Variations and inconsistencies in team branding

    There were at least three licensed Bengals helmet logos used in the 1960s and 1970s, and for reasons I'll never know, none matched the actual helmet. When the striped helmets debuted in 1981, the first official logo did not have an accurate striping pattern. They later got it closer to accurate:

    For the sake of all that is good about MLB uniforms, I really hope this blows up in the Diamondbacks' face.
