I'm curious what happens if opening of Rams new stadium is postponed to 2021? Because IIRC their rebrand was depend of that. They'll unveil new look or wait?

 

Not sure if there are rules on that or not, but when the opening of Miller Park got delayed by a year, the Brewers still unveiled their new look for the last year in County Stadium.

I typically agree to a certain extent, but I feel like the Orioles are a unique case.. they took a regionally relevant name (in more ways than one) and kept a similar color scheme.. as an Orioles fan myself, I have a soft spot for the Browns' history.. in the same vein, I could let it go for the rebirth of the Browns though, if there was another expansion granted to St Louis

 

Except that the Orioles aren’t really the Browns, they’re really the Milwaukee Brewers.

Enough.

I know this is a 2019 thread but the Browns, Rams and Panthers are getting new sets in 2020. 

We’d already heard about the Browns and Rams making plans for 2020. The Panthers make for a highly reasonable guess given their recent change of ownership, his experimentation with their uniforms, and the nature of the usual two-year process.

It's also worth noting that the Cardinals in 2005 had their new look at Sun Devil Stadium a year before State Farm Stadium opened.

Next year will be 15 seasons with that same look? Why am I finding this shocking?

Holy crap.  That's a long time to be walking around with your ass hanging out of your pants.

That's like Penn State wearing a blue helmet or Notre Dame switching the helmet color to blue as a primary. Never Ever EVER!

Do you realize that the Browns USED TO wear a white helmet?

Do you realize that was almost 70 YEARS ago? I think its a fair statement to compare it to Notre Dame or Penn State, Hell will freeze over before its a white helmet again.

After all, the Packers used to wear mono green, but it would be a bad idea to make this the primary uniform now.

Yes, I do know it was a hella long time ago. That doesn't change my question.  Teams HAVE changed color schemes in our lifetime. I'm not saying I have inside information or that I expect this particular change.

 

Regardless, it was a helmet color in their past.

Fortunately the orange helmet has become synonymous with the Browns. Changing to a different color would be like the Packers ditching the oval G

Browns with white helmets would not happen. It would be a second helmet if the league ditched the one helmet rule. But that ain't gonna happen either.

If the Browns change to a white helmet, Cleveland will burn. 

 

And they won't change.

I've always wished they would try this for their throwback set...or it would have made a nice color rush set. (There was also a yellow pants option with this jersey)  Haven't been a fan of the ugly navy/yellow/tan stuff they keep using.

If they used the proper gold pants it would be better.  The tan pants are yet another example of the Packers not being the best stewards of their own history.

 

Not to mention the current yoke looking nothing like the classic look.

Really doesn't do the original justice.

Right now, it's pretty clear the Browns fans love the color rush uniforms. yes, it's in comparison to the craptastic uniforms we have now, but they're definitely a fan favorite. Switching to color-rush type jerseys helps. Get rid of the drop shadow. Orange numbers and stripes on brown. brown numbers and stripes on white. White stripes and numbers on orange. Mix and match as wanted.

 

No sidepanels on the jerseys, no accents, etc. No Cleveland or Browns in big print anywhere.

 

Browns are definitely going to be wearing the color rush next year as many times as they're allowed. They could pull a rams and redo their pants without messing with the jersey and fans would be happy. Just get rid of the BROWNS on the sides.

Orange numbers are a no-go

And the Yankees are the Orioles, and the Brewers are the Pilots, so in a weird, twisted, and completely incorrect way, the Yankees are the Pilots! 

 

Obviously that's wrong, but I wonder what's the weirdest/longest chain of history we could string together like this for various franchises... Definitely helps having multiple teams share a name, as it makes nice crossover points.. could be a fun little project for me to check out

Ahem... Nonsense.  I care deeply about the Duluth Eskimos.

Who doesn't care about the Duluth Eskimos?  I don't want to meet that loser.

 

Not only were they the first team with a logo, it was the rare heptagonally shaped logo.  We should all care about that.

 

EDIT -- On second glance, that jersey on the bottom appears to have a decagon logo and the igloo has more lines.  So much for consistency.  We would have ripped them if the internet existed in 1925.

I wouldn't consider the Arizona Cardinals a charter member. Yes, technically they are, but in reality each time they move they forfeit their status and start over as a franchise in my book. City and Team really need to remain consistent for true historical status. 

 

By your logic, there are no charter members left.  The Bears were still the Decatur Staleys in 1920.
