    An Eagles Jersey I've Never Seen

    Looks like a 96-02 jersey. You can sorta see the SBCPE’s former word mark on the collar.

    And Conan? There's a Gritty beer: He's on someone's mask: HE BROKE THE GODSDAMNED INTERNET: Lapel pins:

    Well there's been Gritty wedding cakes so there's that. He crashed the opening of the new Comcast tower and scared the hell out of some jabronis that were working there. Looks like someone's got a big Gritty head in the crowd at Raw tonight too. Every girl I know is in love with him and follows him on Instagram and Twitter. I don't get it - I've heard people say they want to go to Flyers games just to see Gritty, despite the absurd cost. EDIT: There's a legit petition to replace a mural of Frank Rizzo near my house with one of Gritty: He was on Jimmy Fallon?

    It will be long now.

    Alliance of American Football - Team Names and Logos

    Yea, also the ball should be on the east for Eastern and vice versa. They totally reversed it.

    NFL 2018 changes

    None of those are good examples. Counting white, Stanford and Michigan only have two colors so they utilize their whole pallet on every part of the uniform Counting white, ND has three, and their numbers are outlined so there’s some tie in to the pants, and their colors are represented on the main part of the uni. Counting white, Jax has 4, but the jerseys only have 2, while the pants only 1. They claim their main color is teal, but they have jerseys that contain only 0.000001% of it. It looks like they selected jerseys and pants from different bins in the equipment warehouse, and their helmets from yet another. Nobody hates them for being traditional - but traditional still needs to be done right, and they did not. So screw them and everyone associated with them, and their families too. Hell - screw their pets.

    Helmets should be satin or matte. Really clashes in that last photo.

    There's only one way the culture will change. Firing them is not it.

    The Oakland/Las Vegas/Where The Hell Are We? Raiders

    Say the Jags had moved to LA, and the Chargers either remained in Sd, or move to London. Are the Jags better received in LA than the Chargers are? I assume they'd be in the same stadium situation as the Chargers are.

    The Oakland/Las Vegas/Where The Hell Are We? Raiders

    I'd expect them to change their name if/when they move. I don't think there's a lot of "Jaguars" fans in London, as much as there are just "American Football Team That Plays Here" fans, and the Jaguars have no real history or legacy to protect.

    St. Louis or maybe Memphis. '95 was probably still too early for Nashville to have been a serious thought.

    DC Baseball - Nationals alt concept

    It looks like my monitor is warped where the ball is, or it's inside a rain drop or puddle or something. If you're married to this concept - and you probably shouldn't be - the ball needs some kind of outline - a light one might be best - the whole way around. Also, I'd consider keeping the stitches red on both, since there's never been blue stitches on a baseball in the history of time.

    The black over teal isn't working nearly as well as I thought it would. The flat teal just looks too dark against the black. Really needs gold and/or white striping.

    Los Angeles NFL Brands Discussion

    So would offensive tackles spread just a little wider if the post was in between them and the guard? A post in the field of play just seems absurdly unsafe.

    Lakers Officially Unveil New Uniforms for 2018-19

    The only thing that qualifies would be a jersey that has his face or image sublimated on it. Pinstripes with words don't "honor" Magic Johnson. They made a uniform first, then tried to backfill a story. That's how it seems that a lot of these Nike designs work. Why the F do they even need a Magic Johnson jersey? The whole idea is silly.

    Philosophical question - Monochromatic Design

    I think the packers would look just fine in mono green, as long as the pants had normal stripes like their yellow ones. The stripes and the helmet are enough non-green elements to avoid it looking too dark.

    Philosophical question - Monochromatic Design

    1. What looks good looks good, what looks bad looks bad, regardless of context. THere's good football uniforms that violate the traditional aesthetic, and there's godsawful uniforms that adhere to every rule. 2. THat being said, context is important. In rec-league basketball, if a team was wearing red shirts and red shorts, it would look very strange, because the aesthetic in rec leagues is for the shirt and shorts not to match. It's just how it is.

    Lakers Officially Unveil New Uniforms for 2018-19

    It shouldn't look like anything. It shouldn't exist. The fact that the question even has to be asked is a testament to that. I don't mind alternates or special jerseys, as long as they serve to enhance or extend the brand. When there's 5 or 6 jerseys in all different colors per team, that dilutes, erodes, and devalues the brands. The Lakers brand is partially based in their traditional uniform set, and especially the gold at home. When they introduced white, I'm sure it was controversial, but I liked it. I felt the way they used it actually enhanced the brand. Very few - if any - of these "city edition", "earned", "whatever" jerseys were designed with the team's brand in mind. THey were designed with Nike's brand in mind.

    The Oakland/Las Vegas/Where The Hell Are We? Raiders

    1PM east coast games start at 7PM London time, so while not ideal, that's workable. They could even start one game a week at noon or something if it helps. What do you do when the Raiders FC United is on the west coast? An 11 AM start would be 8PM London time - don't think you can start any later than that. Can you start a game at 10 AM local time? Looks like there's only a small window where daylight savings doesn't overlap, so that's probably not much of an issue.

    The Oakland/Las Vegas/Where The Hell Are We? Raiders

    yeah, that's a terrible plan. Then neither London nor Jacksonville really have a team. Gotta commit one way or the other... ... or yeah - just move to SD.
