  1. I don't find it that odd. If he's someone who works in a job related to NFL equipment, design, or merchandising, then this is probably one of the better communities on the internet to hang out and shoot the breeze.
  2. He's said that he's an insider who has access to a secret document. Assuming this is true, I'm guessing that if he gave too much information regarding where/how he was an insider, he probably wouldn't be an insider for too much longer.

    I hope a lot of fans get this logo.
  4. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    It's especially jarring in combination with their return to a traditional look as far as numbers and striping. It's like wearing a tuxedo jacket with a tie-dye shirt underneath.
  5. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    They actually look familiar to me, in that they remind me of another failure of a franchise taking a backseat to its neighbor...
  6. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    I'm hopeful they reclaim the baby-blue and red look of the old Oilers. It's an attractive combo that would be completely unique among NFL teams, which isn't something that can be said about anything using navy.
  7. I'm sick of all this anti-subtraction prejudice!
  8. NFL 2017 changes?

    The Jets' uniform design is good, as long as the greens are standardized. The only thing that would make it better is to have full shoulder loops, or close to it. The Eagles' uniform, on the other hand, is an abomination. The "midnight green" is bad enough on its own, but putting such a dark color side-by-side with black looks awful. And the black jerseys are even worse. They should either return to kelly green, in which case a little black would be fine as trim, or if they insist on sticking with midnight green, they should eliminate the black and use gray as an accent (which they already do in the eagle's beak and helmet wings). And as long as they're fixing things, they may as well use a less embarrassing number font and drop the drop shadow.
  9. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Which jersey is the "right" one for Brook Lopez then? I know he's been with the Nyets his whole career, but they haven't exactly had a consistent identity.
  10. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I agree. The Foles-era jersey was a great modernization of the classic '90s look, especially once they ditched the piping.
  11. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    As perfect as the 2007 Patriots.
  12. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    Regarding the Lions wordmark on the sleeves: It's a given that any newly-designed jersey has to have the team name on it somewhere for marketing purposes. Most teams have chosen to go with a small chest wordmark, like the Lions' current uniforms, the Broncos, the Patriots, the Texans, the 49ers, and many others. But the chest of a uniform gets crowded, with the NFL collar logo, the numbers, and various patches. So although my first reaction is "WTF," I don't mind the sleeve logo as much as I thought I would. Other teams that have done that (Bucs, Seahawks) have been able to avoid cluttering the front of the uniform. Otherwise, I like it, although I'm worried that they'll produce a uniform that's too bright/saturated, like the current Dolphins' uniform. We already know they're using a brighter blue, and there's a chance that bright blue combined with silver will produce a uniform that's too low-contrast. But I guess we'll see.
  13. Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    I hope they don't change to a white helmet. Plain white helmets are owned by Penn State, and nobody wants to voluntarily associate themselves with Penn State, least of all a team in Ohio. The current set is fugly, but could be cleaned up with a few tweaks. Make the shoulder striping a normal length. Remove the wordmark from the pants and extend the pants striping fully. Remove the contrast stitching. All of a sudden, you'd have a solid uniform. Lots of people seem to be saying the drop shadow should be either removed or converted to an outline. I disagree. Outlines don't look good with this color combination (see the 1984 uniform), and the drop shadow is unique. It's also not a big enough drop shadow to be obnoxious, like the ones that were in vogue in the late 90s and early 00s. Plus, the Browns have a history with drop shadow.
  14. Best nfl uniforms

    Deservedly so. I started watching the NFL around 1990, and the Oilers were one of my favorite teams almost solely because they had sweet uniforms and ran the run 'n' shoot.
