  1. NFL 2018 changes

    Whenever a player starts taking such an interested and active role in the team's uniform, look out. Something horrible is coming your way.

    You know, we already have an "unpopular opinions" thread.
  3. Denver Nuggets New Logos Details, NBA Trademarks Wordmark

    Are we doing the old "it's not gold, it's yellow" thing again? I've love the classics.
  4. They've been wearing this jersey since the early 00's... they can change any season they want.

    Man, I really hope Nike is paying you, because you are working hard for them.
  6. Right... there's already a provision in place for relocation. So the NFL is already willing to bend their rules for cases like this. What some of you seem to be asking is for them to bend the rules for a team that decided to wait a few years, then decided to fiddle with some parts of their uniform, then decided that sucked and the want to wear an alt full time, and on top of all this, they still want to debut something brand new in 2 years. I can see why the NFL would just say no... at this point they really should just make their permanent move, and stop farting around. And if they still plan to wait for their new stadium, that's fine... it really won't be that long.

    Hey, it's 2017! Sleeves are for basketball jerseys... football jerseys are sleeveless, everyone knows that!

    Yeah, looking it over again, that font isn't really appropriate. I think I just wanted to use it because I built it myself. Here's the same concept with a font I didn't build from scratch, but reworked and altered from an existing one;
  9. Well, it doesn't seem like the Rams even requested this. As has been stated about 100 times in this thread, the NFL would've allowed them to change when they moved, and would've allowed them to switch their throwback to primary at any point. The Rams never wanted to do it. Until, I guess, now, when it's obvious to even them that they screwed the pooch so bad. Their plan from the start was to wait for the new stadium. I wasn't until later, when it became obvious that the LA fans hated the St. Louis uniform that they panicked and started doing dumb stuff. Who knows? Maybe the NFL would've allowed them to wear the throwback immediately after the move and still bring out a new uniform 3 years later, if they'd asked. But instead, they decided to wait, and then decided to mess with the helmet, the pants... what, they should now be allowed to change again, and then again in two years? Hell, just pretend they're Oregon and wear something different very couple of games? Screw that... they crapped the bed... now sleep in it.
  10. Yes. Yes, yes. I've done a little math to try to assign percentages to how much blame the Rams deserve for their current uniform mess and how much falls on the NFL. I won't go into all the hard core calculations I did... it's pretty complicated, and I don't want to bore everybody. Anyway, the results are pretty interesting. Based on my pretty much flawless algorithm the Rams end up with (give or take a 1000th of a percentage point) 100% of the blame, while the NFL end up with 0%. Crazy, I know, but you can't argue with science.

    All white would be nice, but not really an alternate since they already have a white jersey (and white pants, too, as of this year). A gold jersey would be OK, but not with gold pants... yeesh. Gold jersey with white or red pants could be interesting.

    I'm also a little confused about why the Panthers' uniform gets so much love on here... I can't count the number of "modern classics" that have been dropped. I mean, it's fine... and these days, with most new designs being garbage, it keeps rising up the lists just by the teams dropping below it (which I'll agree is a good argument for leaving it alone), but I couldn't really bring myself to call it good. I can't get past; The helmet stripe being so disjointed from the pants stripe... both are silver, both have stripes, but they couldn't look less cohesive. The sleeve loops looking so radically different from one player to the next... to me, that's a flaw in the design. The tapered pants stripe... such a product of it's time, it practically has whiskers. The helmet logo (I like the update, personally) repeating on the sleeves and again on the hip... we get it already. Definition of overkill. The white road pants. Especially paired with the baby blue socks it just looks kind of soft, to me. Still, I'd keep it rather than let Nike go nuts on it. A Dolphin style tweak, tho? Go for it.

    Saving two elements from the current mess... the "Cleveland" jersey wordmark, and the number shadow. Bringing back the gray mask and stripe patterns from the old uniform, and adding an actual logo and a custom block font. Whaddya think?
  14. I'm not sure that this is something I'd call a benefit.
