  1. Eh, these actually seem fun and not the usual soulless Nike chrome/black combat-graffiti. I'm just happy that BOTH school colors are in these uniforms. You know what? Sports design needs more whimsy. Everything doesn't have to be mean and aggressive. I want to be on the side of the creative struggle that has fun and whimsy. Bring back the Citronauts UCF!
  2. Well stated @Lights Out. If they are going to roll with throwback-inspired uniforms all the time (which, good on them), then they might as well make them even better. You don't even have to change the stripes on the orange jersey and pants... just the white jersey and pants. You would then have the "numbers one color/middle stripe the other color" motif running between both uniforms in addition to the helmet stripes lining up.
  3. Pant stripe doesn't match the helmet stripe. I get that it's a throwback, but come on. No bueno.
  4. Green and yellow, Oregon... Green and yellow.
  5. I've made this joke before, but the Sharks' designs keep getting closer and closer to these monstrosities:
  6. If we're talking about end zone designs, the Lions are going back to the Honolulu Blue end zones this year:
  7. I'm sure that little bit of whimsy had absolutely nothing to do with the NHL wanting to get into Disney's deep pockets.
  8. Neon Knights is such a fun nickname there's 0% chance the NHL would let it happen.
  9. Google's solution to the Angels' name always makes me chuckle:
  10. I sure hope that's not the reason. The logical gymnastics required to fit that line of thinking is on the level of "I'm going to wear a blue shirt because I want to eat Mexican for dinner tonight." Sure, I guess that's a reason in the loosest sense, but there's not exactly an established precedence for that decision.
  11. Using restraint/simplicity does not mean laziness.
  12. I'm inclined to agree with you on point 1 Brandon, but the only redeeming grace for me is that the Air Jordan logo is so much smaller than the Swoosh, it's almost non-existent to the naked eye. It makes me think of a time before apparel companies had their logo creep up on uniforms and they simply produced the uniforms. Whoever designed this script knows absolutely nothing about calligraphy or kerning. The "M" is far too close to the "i" when compared to the rest of the uniform space between characters. The first time I saw this script on my iPhone, I thought it read as "Nichigan." The other thing about this work that will drive me off the OCD deep end is the crossbar of the 5 being higher than the crossbars of the 3, 6, 8 & 9 for absolutely no reason. I could understand if they didn't add the little serif on the top to shore up the negative space or if they added a little stem beneath the crossbar on the left ascender, but this feels like a rush job/oversight. I like the new 4, and I'm pretty indifferent to the new 2, but this 5 will be the bane of my mental health. But that satin matte finish on the helmet is awesome, no doubt about it:
  13. Not sure if you're aware of this blog using your old Bruins concept logo?

  14. These kits in the AC Milan (grey) /Liverpool (volt) game are offensive to my eyes.
