  2. Still not a fan of the updated logo, but they look much more like the Dolphins again.

    MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    I always thought the old Scranton-Wilkes Barre Red Barons had a classic MLB caliber uniform set.

    NFL 2017 changes?

    My goodness the Rams look awful. The white horn looks cheap and the white face mask doesn't work. The mismatching jerseys and terrible pants stripe. A Frankenstein's monster of awful uniform elements. Those Cowboy blues are still gorgeous though.

    Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    Given the location of your CF would the light up liberty bell be part of the deal? If so, sign me up.

    NBA Changes 2017-18

    I love the drop shadow for the sixers. I'd prefer an outline like the 80s uniforms, but then old numbers and script were begging for something to match the side panels. These are near perfect now.

    Nuggets unveil new uniforms*

    So watch it be the jersey posted earlier, but with an updated collar. What a mess.

    Edited. I deleted the pic. The collars clearly don't match. I'll trust the nuggets themselves over Darren Rovell. Sorry for jumping the gun.

  12. Mike Schmidt wearing 37 instead of 20. It was immortalized on an 83 Donruss card. Credit to Frank McGuigan on twitter for posting the picture.
  13. Sorry if this was already posted, but Reggie White wore 91 with the Eagles when he first signed in 1985. He switched to his legendary 92 in 1986.

    Switching gears, here is Reggie White making the great Steve Young look small. I sat on Reggie White's shoulders to shoot free throws at a charity basketball game. I was a big kid and he was by far the largest man I have ever seen in person. Both in stature and personality.

    Of course. Gifford ended up missing two years, but he, the doctors, the Giants organization, and the league let him come back after that, albeit at a different position. That speaks to the lack of knowledge and foresight the entire league had at that time. It was Bednarik's fault for injuring him with a terrible clothesline tackle. It wasn't his fault for the decision to come back and be subjected to more head trauma. That aside, you can't dismiss the historical relevance of the photo and the story it tells. If anything, let it stand as a cautionary tale.
