    Let me add another yes to the multitude.

    I know it's a different team, but can we get some dopey birds up there?

    NFL 2018 changes

    Wow. I clicked expecting to roll my eyes at the usual fluff and nonsense, but you were right... not too much to argue with there. Could've been written by a regular from this board. Outdated modernism, Nike hatchet jobs, and clunky fauxbacks pretty much sums it up.

    Oldschoolvikings' NHL concepts - Flames concept added 7/14/18

    Just trying something different, I guess. I don't have an issue with the current logo, I just wanted to try a different "C".

    Yeah, I'm not sure what the problem is. Owens decided to be a petty jackass, and the HOF decided to be a petty jackass back. It's a wash... move on.

    A HOF caliber wide receiver having to wait two whole years to get in??? That's outrageous! That's unconscionable! That's... no, wait... I'm sorry, that's just how it pretty much works for every one not named Rice.

    Nice. I especially appreciate the fact that they chose to display this update with the red-over-red-over-white combo. Of course, it could mean nothing but it does give hope that they might not be inclined to go with so much little-league monocrap.

    NFL Increases Use of Alternate Uniforms in 2018

    Sure, but if you ever do get a project like that, please post it here. I'm sure we will all find it infinitely more interesting than the A+ paper about the four P's.

    NFL Increases Use of Alternate Uniforms in 2018

    Oh, OK... I finally get it! I guess I wasn't paying enough attention as the conversation veered into this "good or bad for branding" stuff, which wasn't really my initial concern. So, no, I'm not particularly concerned about a slippery slope towards lost merch revenue (not my problem) or decreased viewership (ditto)... my beef is very specifically as a jersey snob. Yes, my worry is that, with these relaxed uniform rules, when I tune into an NFL game I'll be more likely to see bad uniforms. And seeing bad uniforms affects my enjoyment of the game. In my opinion, when teams are limited to one "real" uniform, they will tend to respect that uniform, and the tradition behind it, and, yes, the brand it carries, which makes it less likely they'll do something stupid with it. More choices for alternates means more "pushing the envelope", more "let's get the player's opinions", more "the kids will love it"... more s#!tty uniforms. And allowing teams to wear their s#!tty alternates more often means I have to see them more often. So, here's the slippery slope... 10 years ago, when the Bears played at the Packers, it was guaranteed to be a gorgeous game. But for the past few years, one or both teams have blessed us with a crappy throwback. And, adding more alternates and relaxing the rules on how often they can be worn makes it more likely that this will continue. (Having said all that, I still come down more on the side of Ice Cap, Gothamite, and BBTV as regards to more alternate looks being bad for branding... how can it not be?)

    Until the rules change allowing teams to have more than one bad alternate, and allowing the team to wear them more often. So, you know... slippery slope.
