So I'm no photoshop guy, but did they essentially adjust the brightness or contrast or saturation until they got the black effect that they wanted, but then instead of making a copy of that so that it was only ever black, they posted the original which could be reversed engineered to get the full-color picture?

 

I think it's more that a picture so darkened can be lightened to reveal much of the original detail. 

 

What they should probably have done was darken the image until they were happy with the obscured picture, and then lay flat black areas over that.  Then we could tweak it but only reveal the large patch of black. 

 

You see this sometimes with redacted documents - you can lighten black marker lines to reveal the text beneath that was supposed to be blacked out.

I have no idea why but these unis have started to grow on me. Maybe it's the fact that I can't change them haha

Honestly, it surprises me to see all of the hate that these are getting. Based on what can be seen, it looks like a really solid modern twist on a traditionally-styled uniform. Sometimes it seems like a lot of you guys are really stubborn traditionalists. Design is totally subjective of course, but how exactly does the entire set become a "failure" simply because the wordmark is placed in the sleeve stripe?

Because sometimes the littlest things bother the hell out of us.

I bet the nike-speak for the shoulder strip wordmark will be something along the lines of "we incorporated both detroits automotive industry and the Ford families automotive company into the sleeve design by making it look like racing stripes...."

I'm liking what I see alot. I had a fear they would go away from the typical Lions look, but I'm glad to see I was wrong. I actually like the wordmark on the sleeves, it's an interesting twist.

This board has a long history of overreacting when a new uniform is debuted, in either direction. It's a CCSLC staple.

 

And until we can see the full design, it's rather silly to declare this uniform to be "garbage" or "amazing" when we don't truly know what this uniform set actually looks like.

I've got qualms about a lot of what I'm seeing, and assuming the worst about everything that isn't visible. However, for me nothing so far negates the benefit of dropping black.

 

I don't see this as a Jax/TB level clusterfudge... yet.

CCSLC Uniform Grading Scale

 

A+ = 100% return to old uniforms with the old logo as well

A = Newer team decides "hey we're from the 60s too!" with both logo and uniforms

B = Traditional uniforms with a slightly modern logo

F = A completely traditional uniform with one modern element (gasp!)

F- = Completely modern uniform and logos

 

On this scale, the Lions get an F, because they have a couple modern elements (Lions on sleeve, new logo).

 

In my grading scale, I give it a A-. I'm a big fan, and actually not completely turned off by "Lions" on the sleeve (although it would be better without, I admit)

If they had done this but with the players' number, I'd dig it. Thw Lions wordmark there is a miss I think.

I agree with those saying it appears these will have small details (LIONS on the sleeve, possible sublimated fur pattern on numbers) that Nike just can't seem to resist and that ruin what should be a modern yet timeless update.

You really haven't been paying attention then.

It's natural to resist change lol

 

It's also natural just to go along with whatever change you're being force fed.

While it's not an amazing uniform by any stretch of the means it's not necessarily a bad idea one either, the word mark on the sleeve isn't on the same level of ugly as the Bucs alarm clock numbers and the Jags half black, half gold helmet.

A sleeve wordmark is stupid, and I don't need to see the whole uniform to know that.   It's stupid on the Bucs, and I can't believe someone else went with it.

it's a shame because it looks like an update of the 60's unifroms I praised before in this thread with only blue and silver and no white. But the sleeve wordmark is completely unneccessary.
