  1. If you think there exist some segment of the general public that actually gets outraged over sport's uniform issues, you've obviously spent to much time on this site.

    I think you're missing his point. He's saying the current shade of brown is so dark it might as well as be black. And I agree... the need to lighten up that brown, and go back to the previous orange, too.

  4. The seahawks should save the blue pants for a bonfire. Wearing gray pants, full time home and road is just about the only way they could make this mishmashed uniform passable.

    Lions look great in silver/white/silver.

    Yeah, their color distribution has always been off, IMO. I think they believe the hip patch (on both the white pants and these new pants) counts as having some gold. Like you, I don't think I agree, but... For me, personally, though... just for the facts that is has stripes and has contrast with the socks? I'll take it.

    Nope... that "rule" (which was never actually rule, thankfully) was broken successfully about 100 years ago...

    The purple pants are a 1000% improvement over the black pants just based on the fact that they now have a contrast with the socks, and (like an actual NFL team) they have stripes.

    2018 NFL Season

    What. The. Hell. Am. I. Watching?
  15. Really? That's how you see it? Seems the exact opposite to me... these days more and more teams seem happy to try out every unappealing combination possible.
  16. I've been posting my NFL concepts for a few months, but I've been doing them just one at a time. I've gotten some nice feedback (thanks) but a single concepts they do seem to disappear rather quickly. I've decided to gather them altogether, along with a few new ones (like the following Cowboy concept), which seems to be the preferred way most of us do this. As always, let me know what you think. Starting with the NFC East,
  17. Here was my thought... sure the Buccaneers' current font is a horrible nightmare, and should probably just be wiped clean, but suppose you had to fix it? Is it even possible? Here's my attempt... My clean up is at the top, and the current font underneath.

    Then you must like pretty much ever Viking uniform in their history!
  19. Really? You must be flabbergasted this website even exists.
  20. Well, IMO, we really aren't just talking about the socks... it's the pants/socks combination, and they can both look worse in tandem. Here's some examples of teams who have done it both the right way and the wrong way; Even the Dolphins' weird dark-stripe "solution" from 2013 is better than the leotard look. I'm not sure how anyone can look at these side by side and not say that the versions with a contrast of color between pants and socks aren't better.
  21. And I would. That, to me, is the absolute perfect reason to hate the blacks pants. I hate the Saints black pants, I hate the Ravens black pants... black pants/black socks is the worst look in football. So far out in front that I'd have to really think to decide what's number two.
  22. The black pants are terrible, made worse by being paired up with black socks.
