  1. Past hour
  2. And in this case, it was a standard baseball style specifically chosen to reference the Yankees and bestow a little of their legitimacy upon the new franchise in town. No different than early football teams borrowing the name of the local baseball club in hopes some of their credibility would rub off. It doesn’t matter that the Bears and Giants have now used those names for a century, no amount of tenure changes the origin. There’s absolutely an argument that the Mets have been using pinstripes long enough that they should keep going, but that doesn’t alter the past, nor does it make them the Pinstripers. We’d laugh them off the internet if they tried to adopt a hashtag like “#PinstripePride”.
  3. There's a reason EVERY team in the NFL uses white/gold/silver for their numbers on their colored jerseys.. it's the only thing that works. Colored numbers on colored jerseys are 100% impractical.. they're miserable for coaches, broadcasters, athletic trainers, spotters, fans who follow more than just the ball, and anyone trying to break down film.. they're not functional, which defeats the purpose of them existing in the first place. They're simply NOT great uniforms full stop.. they're trash.. they were designed to be worn once or twice a season as a gimmick.. Browns fans like them because they got excited for new uniforms a few years back, only to have their hopes shattered with overdesigned garbage, so the Color Rush uniforms were welcomed as a return to a simple, traditional look, not because they're actually decent uniforms. Just better than the horrible uniforms they wear on a more regular basis..
  4. My working theory is that the Browns color rush jerseys are absolutely perfect... for the Bengals (just darken up the brown to black and there it is).
  5. Today
  6. A lot of the times when a team uses pinstripes I tend to overlook the element, but when I think “Yankees” I instantly think pinstripes.
  7. How is this possible? The team colors are right there in every teams logo. Common sense should be that if you see a uniform that does not represent what is in the logo, then it is a special uniform and that's that. Look, I don't like the rampant alternates as much as the next poster but you guys don't need to make up ridiculous excuses to dislike it. You have the TV Broadcast telling you what teams are playing, the team logos to tell you what the team colors are, hell, the front of the jersey should be an obvious indicator as to who the team is.
  8. This whole league's demise is a bigger tire fire than (insert anytime a Goodyear factory exploded). I don't know how anything would top that.
  9. Really? AL Lerner badge? The gray masks in an attempt at a throwback? Three different stripes patterns?
  10. As a Browns fans I can say browns fans love it because it's a great uniform. Full stop. Yes the current set sucks. But browns fans weren't exactly clamoring to keep the old set before the change either. And there's not a lot of nostalgia for the previous unis either. If anything the 80s style gets the most nostalgia but only a select group of fans. And that certainly more remembering the winning teams than it was anything to do with uniform aesthetics.
  11. But the focus in those pics is on the interaction between the brown and orange in the stripes, which has no white in-between. What does the white jersey have to do with the stripes? But it's the Browns' Color Rush that's popular, not the throwbacks like the Rams. It's the Color Rush Browns fans want the team to continue wearing. That's why we're talking about them in the first place.
  12. I view him as the world views the Yankees. Everyone wants him to be near the top, because for some reason the world makes more sense to them when that's what's happening. It always irked me when Woods would miss a cut and that was the bigger story than the 44 other golfers that were still playing the rest of the weekend. Golf has done a poor job of making their younger stars into as big a name as Tiger. So much so that the most interesting story that I can remember before the Masters was the golfer who paid his caddy a pittance, then got taken to the shed by everyone else for not paying a higher percentage when he won the tournament.
  13. I see the Lakers have found their next head coach.
  14. Harden starts 0-15, goes 3-20 and the Rockets still win.
  15. No, you are not. To be clear: the Mets' use of pinstripes is not a tribute to the Yankees. The team's colours came from the Giants and Dodgers; but the pinstripes are just one of the array of standard baseball styles, a feature that plenty of teams have used. It is organic to the Mets. The Mets have worn pinstripes for 58 seasons; to illustrate how long that is, consider that it is the same amount of time that the Yankees had been wearing pinstripes as of 1972. This design element is absolutely essential to the Mets' look.
  16. Can the browns pull a rams and bring back a throwback full time? It’s not like the helmets any different besides the shade of orange
  17. Unpopular opinion - while those are good uniforms, they'd look better without the headspoon.
  18. Good point. Dodgers and Giants were never associated with pinstripes. Mets' pinstripes always came across as the poor man's Yankees uniforms, even after those WS wins. 1986 Mets had them, but they also had racing stripes so who cares. They are perfectly fine for occasional throwbacks.

  20. I was honestly shocked to learn the logo in its current form has only been around since 1999. Obviously 20 years is a long time, but this logo looks like it was designed in the damn 70s. Fun fact, it's somehow not nearly as bad as the original version of the logo. (This appears to be a somewhat sloppy recreation of the actual logo, but I haven't found any actual image of that more than 100 x 100 pixels. It was still a sloppy mess.)
  21. Am I the only one who can't stand the snow whites? The Mets established themselves as a pinstripe team from the beginning and the snow whites were only around from 1997 to 2014. Also I can't see them without remembering that stupid black drop shadow...
  22. Quick update for you guys, I made the ears smaller, and a bit higher. I've also included two versions, one with the original 80% black fur, and one with what I'm calling 75% black. I dunno, I still like the original color better, but let me know why I'm wrong about that. I figured I'd also address each of these suggestions, because I did attempt each behind the scenes originally and decided against them for various reasons. 1) Removing the mouth connection on the left side ultimately returned me to the problem of the dreaded mustache that plagued my earlier versions of the logo. I've been trying for literally half a decade, and the attachment is the only way I know how to avoid it. 2) The mouth connection on the right side completely interferes with the established shading and lighting of the rest of the logo. That was extremely important to me, because I wanted to create a natural update to the actual Maine logo, which features that light/dark split. I did also try the right side connector, but a darker grey, and I just didn't like it. There's something I just love about the negative space there. 3) The white spot on the nose is there to add a subtle layer of depth and follows the lighting scheme. I did originally go without, but the nose just felt like a flat shape. Also, the top of bears' noses tend to look lighter than the front due to sunlight, so this was a subtle way to add that as well.
  23. But what’s wrong with tributing the 1969 and 1986 Mets? They’ve got the same right to pinstripes as a primary uniform. Still, if the snow whites were the main home look, I wouldn’t mind. It’s a sharp-looking uniform, but it doesn’t have the historical clout of the royal blue pinstripes.
