  1. MLB changes 2018?

    yeah that wasn't consistent, but I think when they switched the P to the swirly one in 87 the stripe ran uninterrupted the whole way up. The swirl P was way superior - it sucks that they weren't allowed to wear it the whole time.
  2. Philadelphia 76ers reveal new logo for upcoming playoff run

    OK, so at a few specific revolutionary-war tourist areas. It's not a symbol that's found anywhere else in the city
  3. 2018 NFL Offseason

    I wish my team didn’t have prime time games. They suck - way too late. Monday Night ks is the absolute worst, although Sunday leads to rough Monday mornings.

    Ryne Sandberg is available, lol.
  5. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Funny, I hate the Dallas stars’ use of single color #s. The old browns were another example of it working really well. That jersey would have been downgraded by an outline.

    Not a fair comparison, since the Dolphins were more of a tweak vs a total redesign. The dolphins design has been in place for years, they simply replaced one color (blue) with more of another (orange.) YOu can't compare them with Texas, Penn State, and the Lions throwbacks because those other teams had only one (Texas or Penn State) or two (Lions) non-white colors, so simple options made sense. The jags use black, teal, and gold as non-white colors, so any option that rivals the ones you mentioned would leave a major color out, which renders what they went with a failure. There's no problem with single color numbers, just like there's no prob with double or triple color numbers. It all depends on the stiuation. To hate all single-color-number uniforms is absolutely stupid. In many ways, a plain single-colored number can actually accentuate a jersey. A plain number draws attention to other design elements (like Steelers sleeve strips). In this case, it's a poor choice, but in general there's nothing wrong wtih single color numbers. It doesn't throw anything out the window. THey could have filed two years prior, and only gotten to the one phase once Tom C joined. I bet they were already into the design prior to that, but even if not, it doesn't mean they started after the two-year mandate. This is stupid. It's easy to say after seeing what they revealed, but you weren't the one dealing with the team and trying to meet everything they wanted (whatever that was.) It's so easy to say stuff like this after something is unveiled, but the bottom line is you didn't come up with this. You're just a guy on a message board like 99% of the rest of us. Dude, I love your style, but come on. We're obv not discussing college here. In fact, many of us have compared these to college unis in a derogatory manner. It's clear that unless someone specifically mentions anything about college, the comments are restricted to NFL.

    I might stand corrected - latest report is that they'll open at home against Atlanta. That's weird - I thought MIN was a done deal.

    You claim to hate him, yet you read him. Not sure I understand the logic there. I'd give these a C--. They lose points for (in no particular order): a. No number outline. I'm usually pro solid-color, but in this case the rest of the uniform is so plain that this is screaming for some extra flair. Also it'd solve the issue of no teal on the two primary jerseys. b. No pants striping. Again, just too plain, collegite looking, and give us the legging effect with the black pants. c. Poor combos. The mono combos are all bad, for various reasons. Mostly because the black/black and white/white don't have any teal, which is their PRIMARY GODSDAM COLOR. White over Teal would look great, and black over... well, there's no good option here. I guess teal, but would have to see it in person.
  9. Classic Coral: Dolphins Tweak Colours for New Uniform

    I don’t think there’s any way to call it a downgrade. Even if you were a fan of the blue, it clearly wasn’t implemented well and impacted the orange, which was allegedly their secondary color. I might be the only fan in the world that liked their blue shadows on the previous set, but I get that’s an unpopular opinion. Maybe that’s a way to satisfy fans of the blue, if there even were any. I hope this isn’t major enough to reset the 5 years, but I’m afraid that it is, which means we are stuck with the terrible font and Dolphin Financial Management Inc. logo.
  10. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    NOBODY knows the 5-year rule, but my best guess is that it would be allowed. I assume retailers stock more primary than alts, but as long as all jerseys stayed in the rotation it shouldn’t be an issue as long as it’s planned far enough in advance that all of the necessary 3rd parties can adjust in case their advertisements feature jerseys, or other promo stuff. Thats is just my assumption, not an authoritative answer at all.
  11. Classic Coral: Dolphins Tweak Colours for New Uniform

    I’d say this is more than the “most fans wouldn’t even notice” that we were told. While it’s technicallh a small change, it has a major impact. I think even the most uni-apathetic dolphins fans would notice that something changed.
  12. 2018 NFL Offseason

    Eagles are opening at home against Vikings. That was reported months ago.
  13. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Quoting rather than simply liking. This is exactly right. Also, had t never existed, that Fred taylor unit could have been unveiled tonight and would have been universally praised, and nobody would have said “looks like it was designed in the 90s”. That’s a classic.
  14. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    In what way do they look like the Eagles? I don’t see it at all.
  15. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Or maybe they only have some of the decals up, or maybe there's a whole other wing of the airport where there's guys in the black. Doesn't mean anythign right now.
