    The yellow-on-white doesn't bother me as much on the white jersey, but it's awful on the red jersey. One of my sports design truisms: any red and yellow team ought to minimize white and channel the flag of Belgium. Quick and dirty mockup, but I think the color balance and readability is miles ahead anyway.

    Buffalo vs Philadelphia looked great. Can you believe there was a time where it looked like this?

    Re: Uniform Ads. My stance is the same as it's always been - Uniform ads are both bad and inevitable. I've understood they were going to come for a long time and I understand why (I MAKE MY LIVING IN ADVERTISING, GOONS), but that doesn't mean I have to like it. I understand people who don't care at all because there's lots of things I'm not the least bit passionate about that many others are (video games and pro wrestling are two examples). What I don't understand and will never understand are the people with no financial interest on either the team's side or the advertisers' side, people who found their way to a message board about sports uniforms, who take and defend the position that uniforms ads look good. WHAT THE HELL

    I think my biggest gripe of the NBA's current jersey program isn't so much all of the designs, it's the frequency of the designs. Don't give me equal appearances of all 4-5 jerseys, give me the Association and Icon for the bulk with the Statement, City and Earned/Throwback thrown in there as a "treat." I want Color vs. Color matchups, but keep them in the Icon and Statement jersey options only. Just give some order to the madness.

    No, not a fan of this at all. If there is one thing a team in Miami, a city of sunshine, doesn't need its gray or silver. Aqua, orange and white doesn't need to be dulled down. If the reason is because that dolphins are gray than that is a terrible reason.

    Funny - while watching that game, I was thinking about how well those Seahawks uniforms have held up, especially since trash like the Browns and Bucs came and went. Not every uniform needs to be a 'classic' or a 'forever uniform', but for now, I think it's a perfect look for them and for a team from Seattle. Will it last another 10 seasons? Probably not... but that's OK. The league is fine with a balance between teams with 'old school' brands like KC, Pittsburgh, Dallas, etc., and teams with contemporary looks that evolve over time, like Seattle and maybe the Chargers. Atlanta really wants to be in that latter group, but then they go ahead and turn out dog crap. When I think 'modern classic', I think of a uniform that has some contemporary elements but can also be a 'forever uniform'. Bucs, with their use of non-traditional color like pewter, probably fall into that category. Texans probably do. Maybe Vikings, though their font gimmick sucks. I think the Eagles fall into it, but I get that might be a minority opinion. I would certainly NOT call the Seahawks uniform a 'modern classic', but it's a good uniform for 2021. That's all it wants to be, and that's all it needs to be.

    Las Vegas is built around a service economy that has not existed for nine months and may never exist again. I wouldn't break my back getting in there.

    I really don’t get the reasoning behind Carolina needing new uniforms. Is there any concrete evidence to support the claim? The current ones are fine, but I could see them going in a Colts+ direction. Not a total overhaul, but rather refining the current look. The first step should revolve around the shoulder number sizing issue. For whatever reason, I’m assuming cut/template issues, the shoulder numbers have received a noticeable size change. Either take out the sleeve logos and move the numbers to the sleeves or just take them off and keep the logos on the sleeves. The second step is changing the helmet stripe. It’s arguably one of, if not, the worst in the league. It gets dangerously close to the helmet logos. Either go stripeless or match them to the jersey and pants. The third step is fixing the pants stripe. Now, it isn’t a huge deal and I could live without a fix, but the bottom just looks weird. Streamline the stripe and have it even all the way down, like a normal pants stripe would be (see Texans, Patriots, etc.) Other than that, there’s no real reason to give Carolina a complete overhaul. Again, the uniforms aren’t bad. They just need a little TLC

    This is a perfect example of the biggest issue with the Rams new set. It's not really about the new set being total garbage (which it is) but it's more about not living up to the standards that the Rams should and could have aesthetically. If the Jags or the Panthers put out a set in the realm of what the Rams just did, oh well. It's bad but it's not like they had a stout uniform history. But this is the RAMS. I remember as a kid collecting the gumball machine NFL helmets. The horn was so iconic. It's a shame really.

    If they allow it again, should be for throwbacks only. No mix and match.

    Hey Saints, this is it. Burn the white socks, match the golds and logo, and this is all you need to wear until the rest of time. Perfect. (Gold and white pants are both good, but never add black pants. As we've seen the past 3 seasons, they are too tempting for New Orleans.)

    I can't get behind making Vice full-time because I fear it may feel gimmicky in a couple years, but more importantly, the Heat have the modern classic set in the NBA -- all three jerseys. That they've also had such success with an alternate brand when almost all their NBA brethren are spinning their wheels is really something. To me the original sin is simply that these jerseys have to change every single year. If Miami has found four good Vice jerseys, let them cycle through as alternates until the shtick gets tired, or just pick your favorite as the permanent Vice alt. If Utah wants to keep the desert gradient indefinitely, let them. Maybe bringing back the white Vice jersey knocks down your merchandising revenue a bit next year, but guess what, so will switching to a new City scheme that isn't as successful (which seems a likely bet based on the rest of the league).

    As a huge heat vice lover I still think the concept and everything this year is great. But the execution, my goodness. Like what's up with the gradient in the key? it just looks like 3 blocks? this is what it should look like. Super smooth gradient all throughout. You don't get a solid color until all the way like an inch from the end But this is what we end up with:

    This Bucks/Warriors matchup is pretty much everything that is wrong with the NBA’s current uniform landscape. The Bucks are in various shades of blue (which is only a quinary color for them), on a court that is almost entirely green, against the visiting Warriors who are wearing white. Just terrible all around.

    Out of all the new uniforms, the best one IMO is the new city edition for the Hornets. I can get past the whole “Buzz City” thing. It doesn’t bother me. The mint, gold, and black work so well with each other.

    Just turned it on and, yep, to the casual viewer it would make no sense. Not only that, but the scorebugs show light blue for the Knicks -- who are in black and dark blue for the Magic -- who are in orange and white. This is dumb.

    Besides, the stripe was a vestigial part of the identity, from their pre-1979 set. You see how the northwestern helmet stripe fits with the Packers-style stripes elsewhere? It's why the gold pants/striped burgundy socks worked so well with the helmet (not the jersey). If Washington wants a helmet stripe to go with the 1979-present set, I suggest aping the '80s Virginia Cavaliers: Gotta stick with the asymmetrical motif.

    Can we also note how awesome it was that the Browns did this while looking like the Browns instead wearing those clown suits they had been wearing the last few years?

    I loved it when we all wore Heat uniforms in the early '90s, when fashion obviously peaked. Fire, or whatnot.

Have never been able to stand the current Dunedin mark - looks off balance & unfinished. https://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/qw94t4zjebxih1u8o4akhivwh/Dunedin_Blue_Jays/2012/Primary_Logo Thought I'd try to add a bit of regional flare to the bare spot while paying homage to the parent club!

    Ok, up next is the Utah Jazz! I'm taking this this opportunity to push the Jazz identity a little further into a modern direction. While in general I'm glad they brought the J-Note logo and word mark back a few years ago, I never like it when team's just "re-adopt" old identities and logos. Old logos are great for throwbacks, but it is pretty lame to recycle into your primary identity. I much prefer the Blazers "evolution" of the pinwheel to the Jazz's "the 90's were crazy, and the 00's regrettable, let's just go back to our 80's logo" process. The new Jazz wordmark and J-Note are my interpretation of what a next step in the evolution could be for them. I abandoned the decidedly un-Utah Mardi-Gras colors in favor of a palette that brings in the uniqueness of their 90's colors, albeit a little more muted. The Icon and Association sets use horizontal striping on the jersey and shorts that mimic the musical staff. The Statement uniform (now with Jordan logos) uses the icy blue color, some bold striping on the shorts, and a vertical UTAH text. As always, bring on the C&C. Thanks, y'all.

    Yeah, a bigger stroke is one of the things I'd improve if I redid the concept. Yeah, a 25-year-old team with two Super Bowl appearances and two other NFC championship appearances is historically bad. A gimmicky rebrand would be a disaster for our brand identity.

    It does look nice but it isn't look Rockets AT ALL. In fact, it was worsened by the fact that it was against the Kings, of all teams, who have used very similar colors before in their history and over the course of the past few seasons. Typically it would have been the Kings in light blue and red against the Rockets in black. Took me a moment to realize it was in fact the opposite tonight.

    IMO, no. Of all the arguments in favor or against a uniform on these here boards, the "they wore these when they were bad/good" argument is about the silliest. For example, the Browns could have won 5 straight Super Bowls in their previous set and I still would have thought it was one of the worst looks in the league. Winning wouldn't have changed a thing about those awful uniforms. Moving to baseball, the Dodgers could lose 100 games a season for the next 10 years and they'd still have one of the best looks in all of sports. The only thing that should matter with a uniform is whether or not it looks good. Period. You know what people associate with winning or losing? Winning or losing.

    Other than the obnoxiously large “ATL”, horrible number font, and dated side panels and their refusal to wear this combo more than 1 time all year sure.
