  1. NHL Greatest Uniforms

    What I find interesting about the winner's look in Chicago is that the layperson would say they haven't changed in 50 years but a closer look reveals all the little tweaks they've made to the logo, outlines, feathers, etc. so there's a lot going on to keep us uniform people interested even while the look has been 'unchanged'.

    Unless there's a sizable shift somewhere, the new alternate will not be a re-hash of a previously existing design.

    The United States of soccer show had some so bad they're funny names submitted that the host was reading yesterday. Ten S.C. made me laugh.

    IF (big if there) the fan survey that circulated a while ago is relied on in designing the new look, it will be a black jersey with a non-BOLTS logo and plenty of blue and possibly gray/silver accents or stripes.

    Major upgrade. If the shirt colors change to match that it'll be an amazing look. While there are still some clunkers, is MLS the best top to bottom looking league in the US?
  6. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Some schools do a team unity special uniform. Some do a military or patriotic theme. Some use a campus landmark. And then some just plaster their own faces on...speaks to just about every UCF person I know! 😝

    Ah gotcha. I tend to agree on the whole 'just throw it back to when we were relevant' idea recently seen by Edmonton and the Islanders as being lackluster. I guess with the Sens the point I'm at is that since it looks unstoppable that the O is coming down the line, do it big.

    I would stop there because what you suggested are more than aesthetic changes.

    My super unpopular take is Ottawa should be simultaneously progressive and traditional, dropping the Senators moniker and going by Ottawa H.C., while going full blown super retro for their look. Goalies in full retro brown colored pads, simplistic O logo, faux leather player gloves (think the recent Sher-Wood LEs), stuff like that. Scrapping the Senators portion of the identity wouldn't hold them back from going full O, nothing there references anything but the city name. I know this would never happen. I suppose it's born of my desire to see a team do something outside the box but not flashy, my disdain for any look the team has ever worn, and my recognition that my low opinion of the O and related looks is opposite of the hometown fans. I mean come on that is not a professional look in this day and age! Ok im done. *This is my standard hockey rant #1, followed by why does Edmonton's goal horn suck so bad?

    I don't know, people like it? For the record that change would be taking a poor identity and dropping it to 31st in the league by a large margin. Simply not a strong enough mark or look to build an identity around.

    They're celebrating the history of Ottawa hockey. No one with half a brain cell thinks it's the same Ottawa Senators. I hate when teams monkey around with history, this is just honoring an old team with a one off jersey. The whole event is a celebration of the league's 100 years.

    Agreed, this is great.
  13. This summary is a little off base, as the initial demotion with Theodore was a product of those two not requiring waivers. He was granted permission to stay in Las Vegas with his family to continue workouts as he was going to be recalled as soon as possible. A paper transaction really.
  14. That's a great point, it really does match that 'coming out of the shadows' look. Makes the rational for the current one all the more puzzling. Shadows was pretty adamant on correcting to showers, not sure I'd want to see that helmet.

    Perhaps oddly, I actually don’t. One of my nitpicks is seeing the same logo in one view of a jersey. I don’t like Buffalo’s original set for having the shoulder patches just be a mini version of the crest and the Nordiques for the fluers de lis just being plopped on. An updated Nords would likely have some sweet striping with them incorporated in though, almost limitless options to come up with something sharp. Makes me twitch that in that pic of Fleury the logo has two different outline treatments!
