  1. San Francisco 49ers to Unveil New Uniform Tomorrow

    Except the Eagles, which is still one of the most inexplicable games of all time.
  2. Teams Due for a Rebrand

    I've heard of the "must include a basketball" rule as well, but I've never seen any hard evidence of it, and there are certainly some teams that seem to violate that rule. For instance, until this offseason's rebrand, the Nuggets didn't have any logo with a basketball in it. The Rockets, Bulls, and Blazers don't have any logo that contains a basketball element, and the Spurs didn't until this past season. And plenty of other teams only have a basketball as part of a rarely-used alternate logo (e.g. Hawks, Cavs, Warriors, Bucks). What I'm saying is that while that's a pervasive rumor, I'm not sure if it's an official rule (if you know otherwise, please share!). And if it is an official NBA rule, it's an incredibly dumb one.
  3. New Best Buy logo

    I can't wait until one of those gets hacked, like in Silicon Valley.
  4. San Francisco 49ers to Unveil New Uniform Tomorrow

    The real question will be whether they're detail-oriented enough to swap the current helmet logo (gold oval inside the black oval, slight drop shadow on the SF) for the '90s one when they wear the throwbacks. Of course, the actual 1955 uniforms used plain red helmets, so we'd be talking about a 1994 throwback rather than a 1955 one.
  5. San Francisco 49ers to Unveil New Uniform Tomorrow

    I have no inside information, but I'll be kind of shocked if the new throwback isn't the 1994/1955 uniforms. Not only is it a good looking uniform that differs noticeably from the current set, but they won the Super Bowl the last year they wore it, and that's something cool. And 1994 was at the very start of the team apparel merchandising boom, so there aren't that many 1994 throwback jerseys floating around already. The 1959-63 jersey with the shoulder hoops is cool as well, but it's more or less the current road jersey with different sleeve striping. To the average fan, I'm not sure if that's enough of a difference to buy another jersey, which is ultimately the point of any alternate uniform.
  6. Teams Due for a Rebrand

    Teams that have rebranded recently and use a roundel logo include the Astros, Blue Jays, Twins, and Nationals. The problem is more pervasive in the NBA, due to most teams attempting to include a basketball in their logo for some reason - recently added NBA roundels include the Hawks, Nuggets, Pacers, Pistons, Warriors, Wolves, Sixers, Raptors, and Wizards.
  7. Teams Due for a Rebrand

    The last thing MLB needs is another round logo with the team name surrounding a graphic. I hate how MLB (and NBA) logos are all moving toward that.

    I agree with you that the throwbacks should stay as throwbacks, worn once a year on Thanksgiving. In addition to being low-contrast, the look is a little too simple and traditional for a team wearing silver with a dynamic, leaping lion as the logo. That said, I think their current primary home and road uniforms do a nice job of establishing enough contrast, and I really like that they ditched the black. The darker gray keyline around the numbers on the home jersey gives just enough contrast and pop, and high contrast is less important than it used to be now that everyone has huge HD TVs. And the road uniform is the perfect balance of blue and silver. I think they're now arguably a top-5 uniform in the league.
  9. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Well, he won DPOY and the Super Bowl for the 49ers, who were one of the most widely-covered franchises in the 90s. So he got about as much exposure out of that one year as possible.
  10. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I thought about including this one, but Norton actually played 7 seasons in SF versus 6 in Dallas, so I'm not sure it's the "wrong" uniform.
  11. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    A few mercenaries from the 1994 San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl team: Gary Plummer (played most of his career with the Chargers) Rickey Jackson (played 13 of his 15 years with the Saints) Deion Sanders (played only one year as a 49er) Charles Mann (played 11 of 12 years with Washington) Richard Dent (played 12 years with the Bears and only one with the 49ers) Toi Cook (played 7 years with the Saints, only two with 49ers) Bart Oates (played 9 years with Giants, only two with 49ers)
  12. Denver Nuggets New Logos Details, NBA Trademarks Wordmark

    It doesn't really matter if the Cavs currently use that color scheme, because the Cavs will change their uniforms in a year or two.
  13. Steelers Set to Unveil New Throwback Alternate Uniform

    I like the second-generation font much better. It fit both the sleekness of a team named after a big cat, and the modern look of a 90s franchise.
  14. NFL 2018 changes

    It was the humane thing to do.
  15. Every uniform should be assessed in its context. The 1950s uniforms were fine-looking uniforms in an era where every uniform was relatively minimalist and had long sleeves. The Millen-era uniforms looked like somebody slapped random black trim onto the 1990s Lions uniform, which is exactly what happened. No, the 1950s uniforms shouldn't be brought back as a full-time uniform today (although they're great at Thanksgiving, as a reminder of the dominant Lions teams of the 50s), but the Millen-era uniforms were a joke design-wise.
