    Those alterations were done by the equipment manager.

    No, they didn't.

    Just you, they are the same width.

    That is an epic photoshop fail. Adidas is NOT producing replicas for Fanatics. They poorly 'shopped an Adidas authentic image. Smudged out the dimple fabric on the yoke, straightened the hem and slapped on a jocktag,

    I'll third it.

  8. Nice little piece my friend who worked on the project put together about the Broncos redesign and how it has held up 15 years later. Nice insight and sketches. And NO, the nostrils or side panels are NOT Swooshes. Get over it. Denver Broncos: 15 years later

  10. Hidden meanings in logos

    The old Buffalo Sabres logo, the eye is a ying-yang. Why? I have no idea for sure but I always thought it was a nod to the parent company HSBC (Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Company), which had owned what was once Marine Midland Bank and was the first name of the arena. Personally I always thought the switch to the black and red was because of the HSBC tie-in and their corporate colors, just not as blatant as Orca Bay entertainment. Most people think the red/black switch was because of the Regis family and Adelphia cable, but that happened long after the team went to black/red and was mere coincidence. this is an extreme close-up of the vector art:

    No, it's not. Just an old urban myth that got started when the uni's were first unveiled. I blame Woody Paige for that one.
  12. Bills confirm new uniform for 2011

    So let me get this straight.... the thicker navy outline is on the REPLICAS, and the barely noticeable navy outline is on the authentics? Or is it the opposite? I don't think it should be as thick as pictured here, looks amateur-ish, but I wish it was a little thicker than the outlines seen on the military jersey models at the unveiling, that's too thin IMO. Those ARE the authentics in that picture. There's a huge difference between the $200+ authentics and the on-field jerseys that are not for sale. So then what is this? A replica or replithentic perhaps. Open ended sleeves with no cuff, non-tapered body and everything appears screened- hard to tell. But the Navy is thin not thick.

    After watching this video, I am even less of a fan of the helmet stripe widening. You see a really good shot of it at the end of the clip. Bills Uni Video It's just unnecessary and borders on gimmicky. Just because the red streak in the logo widens doesn't mean you have look for a place to emulate it. So by that thinking, shouldn't the pant stripes widen too? It's as if they're looking for things to re-design, a reason to do it and or yet another "signature" element. How about just design a classic uniform, a new benchmark for the league and have that be your signature element. That would be a novel idea. Bengals, hands down worst unis in the NFL.

    Like Scott Norwood's kick... close, but no good. This is so frustrating because these are so close to being perfect. As a born and raised WNY'er and avid Bills fan it just pains me to take one step forward and two backwards all the time. Pros: ? Back to Royal ? White helmet. I love the red one also, but this is fresh and the logo pops off of it. ? Classic striping but.... see my cons ? I actually think the sleeve striping placement looks good. It seems like a necessary solution to the increasing problem of no-sleeve unis and reduced awkward stripes. Cons: ? Navy? really? didn't we learn this lesson. It's NOT needed, get rid of it, it is completely pointless. At no time in 30+ years did I ever hear anyone or a broadcaster say the numbers were difficult to read when just royal/red or white/red. ? The navy outlines makes the whole thing look cartoonish and juvenile. ? Logo overkill: 5 logos between the helmet, jersey and pants. You only need the helmet, get rid of the rest. ? Striping coloring inconsistency: only because there is the stupid Navy does this even present an issue. Why is the striping on the white jersey different from the numbers to the sleeves? Duh, hello Reebok wake up. The numbers from inside out read: royal/red/navy. The stripes are royal/navy/red ? Tapered helmet stripe on a classic helmet with gray facemask, paired with a traditional jersey and pant striping = FAIL
