  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Also because Terrence Ross already pulled this gimmick a few years back (with the right jersey too).
  2. NHL 2017-18

    Another small thing that bothers me is that the main numbers on the home jerseys are white outlined in silver on a burgundy background, but the sleeve numbers on the roads are white outlined in blue on a burgundy background. The blue pants look better than black & burgundy, but they would definitely be jarring on the road considering the lack of blue on the jersey. They definitely should have added blue sleeve piping next to the silver.
  3. NHL 2018-19

    At this point I have no faith in this organization making any smart decisions, off or on the ice, so who knows? With that being said, if they were already planning on making the switch to the =O= for next year (which it seems like they are), I'm sure they would have had to submit the changes to the league by now.
  4. NHL 2017-18

    I never realized they had updated the nameplates when they first wore them inside, but upon some further research you're right (I've clearly stopped paying any attention to the games): What's strange is that they literally took the same numbers from the home jerseys (unlike the other =O= jerseys that used double outlines), but offered no explanation on why the name font was changed. I was at least expecting some marketing speak claiming it matches the font used on the original Stanley Cup or something.
  5. MLB changes 2018?

    I feel like with the Raiders & Warriors both on their way out of Oakland, it makes sense for the A's to push the city name on the jerseys.
  6. NHL 2017-18

    I would prefer they just go with the adjective-less Knights name as well, but based on what I've read/heard, it doesn't seem like an option (otherwise Foley likely would've just adopted it when Black Knights got vetoed).
  7. NHL 2017-18

    Even if somehow Vegas loses the rights to the Golden Knights name, I highly doubt there will be any changes to the logo or uniforms. It seems like the branding was done purposely to not put any emphasis on "Golden", in case something like this happened. My guess is they would just shift to either Sand Knights or Dessert Knights, and make a slight adjustment to their wordmark logo. Given the historic start this franchise has had, they've already managed to build up quite a bit of brand equity with the current logo & uniforms. There's no way they ditch that to become the Neon Knights and bring magenta into the fold (or make any other branding changes that some have suggested).
  8. NHL 2018-19

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Panthers unveil a 3rd jersey using the updated leaping panther on the inaugural red uniform (with the shade of gold updated). Would be a nice way to tie both looks together, and I'm sure they would sell well given the current wave of '90s nostalgia.
  9. NHL 2018-19

    I am a fan of the Panthers inaugural set, but it's tough to call the template original when these bad boys were introduced the season before:
  10. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I would prefer to see them split the difference when it comes to the shade of blue. The navy helmet is far too dark, but I'd like to see them darken the jerseys just a touch. My ideal situation with the 2 LA teams would see the Rams using darker royal & yellow, with white only used on the road jerseys, and the Chargers using powder blue & white, with yellow trim. Both schemes are fitting for SoCal teams, and are distinct enough from each other.
  11. NHL 2017-18

    Except Vegas has pretty much adopted this exact scheme (and even has a better executed gold-helmeted historical warrior logo).
  12. NHL 2018-19

    I would rather see them pull a Rangers and use the heritage jerseys, but come up with a crest or shield that incorporates the =O= and have that he the official primary logo. These are great, but the inconsistency between the jersey/sock stripes and the pant stripes really bothers me. They should either have the striping match the jerseys, or just use solid black shells.
  13. NHL 2017-18

    When they announced last year's game in Pitt, they said the plan was always to have Philly host the matchup the following year outside (in honour of both teams' 50th anniversaries). Not sure why they didn't do it this season though. I'm still surprised the NHL hasn't tried to capitalize on last year's playoffs by having the Preds play outside at Nissan Stadium, especially when the Blackhawks would be the most logical opponent.
  14. NHL 2017-18

    While I've made it pretty clear on this board that I'm on team "go with the O", I'd actually prefer a primarily black 2D gladiator set over a primarily red =O= set. Every red & black team in the league uses red at home, and with the addition of silver you're suddenly entering Carolina territory. As a one-off special event jersey I'm ok with it, but this team should be in black, like they were when they entered the league.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    This teaser shows a bit more than the first, and it actually does look like a thin silver stripe separating the black & white. Still not sure what colour the actual jersey is going to be though. Red would be interesting, given the team's already done a black & white heritage set, but I'm still hoping for black. One red jersey is one to many for the team IMO.
