    I don't know. Blacks are pretty good at basketball. Seriously though, the red jerseys are so much better than the whites. The white jerseys are fine, and I don't want them changed, but they can't hold a candle to the reds.

    Looks like the equpment manager mistakenly gave the poor kid a helmet phone. (popularized by the nfl draft)

    As I figure most of us know, the Flames unveiled a new third jersey that...is so okay it's average. The sunset/mountains/wheat patch, I love. The odd looking 5, yeh it looks weird. The yoke looking like a stereotypical cowboy's shirt, it's alright. The script is decent, but looking at those rejected ideas Icethetics got a shot of, it seems like a missed opportunity. As Mills Lane would say though, let's get it on. Main The simplified burning C caught my eye, and I wanted to see what it'd look like on a uniform. As I like their current number font, I thought it'd be a waste to not use it, though the red jersey uses gold numbers rather than black. I normally don't bother with helmets as far as hockey concepts go, even though I should, but I'm imagining red helmets here. Third Sue me, I liked the boot. Granted, the CALGARY is admittedly a bit messy, but the boot was simple enough to trace. Figured to differentiate this from the main reds, there'd be no black outlining, different pants shell, and obviously different striping. The horseshoe number was the final touch I'd wanted to add, but then came the problem of striping. Some of you may recall how I occasionally bitch about one of my older concepts, a Drummondville Voltigeurs set whose third jersey was said to look like "every other hockey jersey ever," as that was not a compliment, to put it mildly. The striping I went with is based on what I'd used for the Voltigeurs home/away, except the inner stripes on that version were vertical, here they're at a slight angle, somewhat mimicking the "podium stripe" of the late Fleury era. I'm thinking of making at least one more set here, though other than intending to use the regular C if I do so, I make no promises.

    The Tom Jackson thing was just the apex of Let's Hate Jay Cutler Mountain. What an absurd series of events that was.

    He's not with the Broncos anymore. He's not even playing in the AFC West anymore. So there's that. Mostly my desire to see Cutler win a Super Bowl stems from the way sports media bent over backwards to make him out to be some sort of villain. Seeing them all have to deal with "Jay Cutler: Super Bowl Champion" would be amusing. Eh, fair enough; my general distaste for players doesn't disappear when they leave rival teams, but the last thing I'm going to do is try to influence other people's ways of irrationally disliking athletes. In any case, I think I've established myself as a pro-Cutler folk and would have to agree with what you have to say there. Tom Jackson talking about Jay Cutler is pretty much the kind of stuff that Awful Announcing was invented for. Personally, I would prefer it most if the Bears were the team that snuck out of the NFC North, but that's for more reasons than Cutler. What happens from there? Eh, just make sure the Patriots don't win the Super Bowl; I'd be fine with everything else.

    It was pretty pathetic how they tried to make him the bad guy. I think it was last year when Tom Jackson tried calling him out for not saying hello to Soldier Field employees when he arrived at the stadium and in the video they used, he was waving at the employees.

    Yeah that's a likely story. Next thing you're going to say is that the Browns aren't named after a color... It's literally in the second paragraph of their Wikipedia entry... You do realize that Wikipedia is not the best source of information because any moron can edit it, correct? So just because it's on Wikipedia, does not make it true. But, even if they were named after a military unit or person, whatever that story is, it has black in the name, and therefore logically, they should have a black jersey. you do realize that wikipedia was true in this case, the owner was a commander in the 86th Infantry division (the blackhawk division) and that division was named after the Sauk indian Blackhawk who was also prominent around illinois

    Says the butt-hurt UK fan. Teddy has shown time and time again why he is the best QB prospect in the draft. His arm is great and he can throw the football with precision and also not to mention his durability (playing with a broken wrist and sore ankle against Rutgers last year) makes him special. But the thing that sets Teddy apart from Johnny Manziel is his football IQ and the way he analyzes the defense makes him a star at Louisville. Couch and Smith both played in the air raid systems in college and those inflated their stats. Teddy has played in a pro-style offense that is oriented on running the football and is used by most NFL teams while putting up excellent numbers (28 TD's and 4 INT's in 2013). For him to put up the type of numbers while playing in that offensive style makes him a sure-fire #1 pick in the draft. With the way that the NFL teams are using the spread, Teddy could be even better as he has more opportunities to throw the football. To me, I compare him to Andrew Luck or Aaron Rodgers.Let's not get carried away now, amigo.Where you cite a favorable system for the previously mentioned QBs, I'm going to cite a horrible conference and a lack of elite competition for Bridgewater. The MAC could compete with most of the teams in the AAC. I understand where you're coming from but think about Colin Kirkpatrick or Joe Flacco. They didn't face very much elite competition (Colin did face Boise State though) and both of them became really good players in the NFL. What matters is that they have good physical talent and have good teammates and/or coaches to help them fit in the NFL.And if I were building a franchise (which is basically where Houston will be, pending Foster's health), I'd pick neither of them to lead a team. They rely very heavily on their supporting casts, unlike Rodgers and Luck, whom you mentioned. Sure, Bridgewater may do okay in the NFL, but to me, translating to the next level as a #1 pick means he needs to be a hell of a lot more than a game manager.For every Colin Kaepernick, there's 15 Kellen Moores. College success does not a good NFL make.

    The light blue is a nice aesthetic, but with neighboring Rhode Island, I don't think the Navy and Columbia can be so prominent together. At any rate, the helmet is an improvement over the atrocity they have currently.

    I agree. Houston is an AMAZING look for them, miles better than what they currently have. I agree that the UConn lighter blue has to go. Maybe a hint of red and a tad more grey?

    Never should have ditched the colours of the presidential seal. The logo could stand an update but the 1995 set was the only instance of the team having an identity that was truly theirs. The first set is nothing more than a montreal canadiens rip-off with an abundance of unnecessary stars and a truly awful logo. How can a team called the "Capitals" be represented by a wordmark entirely in lower case?

    Every stolen base that draws a throw at 2nd or 3rd is a bang bang play that requires a tag. Every batter stretching a single to a double or triple that draws a throw is a bang bang play. This is what plays at the plate will begin to look like. Hardly game changing.

    I've just had a longer look at the logo definitely looks deliberately obscured, but it appears to be the same old logo. There's no muscled up HUgo which has been indicated thus far. Still not certain that this isn't just a retro design (with the wordmark not 100% accurate), but I have a strong hunch that this jacket has the wordmark that will be revealed this weekend. The wordmark rebrand reminds me of how the Knicks changed their wordmark. Very similar font with slightly different kerning.

    I don't know if any of you care, but they're doing this right. They maintain that it's a different franchise, but are referring to the return of the Hornets. It is the return of the namesake. They have Muggsy Bogues doing radio ads for the unveiling. This is big for Charlotte. Yeah, anyways... just figured y'all might wanna know.

    There's a lot of pent up hostility here. Calm down. And I don't understand any of these shots at Baltimore. Many analysts picked them to be in the Superbowl not just last year, but in recent years prior. They're not some fluke flash in the pan team, nor is Harbaugh a bad coach by anyone's definition of bad. I'm assuming we're dealing with a 13-year old here.

    Agenda? How? I just wanted to see what people's opinions were. I don't really care one way or the other. lol The Dolphins stripe is more modern. There are people who complain about the way that looks too. Agenda? How? You posed a question and when people answered differently than you wanted you began arguing with them. You wanted to see what people's opinions were and when they differed from yours you got defensive of your agenda. And it's clear you do care for one way over the other. lol

    They overheard Lamoriello talking about signing Keith Tkachuk to 42 over 6 with a no-trade and thought it best not to press the issue any further. Others in the Devils organization were worried he would again threaten to "make pee-pants," as he called it, like he did when Jagr wanted to wear a number over 50. Anyway, moving on from the "Lou Lamoriello is rapidly losing his faculties" meme, I'm not at all surprised that the Hawks put up a fight with their uniform. McDonough is pretty defensive of The Brand, having discontinued the 1996 blacks and the Winter Classic alternate once its purpose had been served. But it's no shock they ultimately lost out; this year's Blackhawks have had a lot of trouble stopping other people's power plays.

    Ah... I was hoping the Brooklyn Dome would've been a reality in this universe! But if the Brewers and the Pilots aren't the same team in this universe, the Brewers' colors would probably be navy and red. Bud Selig wanted to essentially re-create the minor league team he grew up following, and only ended up with royal and gold as the team's colors because he didn't have time to get new uniforms before the 1970 season. Stuff like this occasionally still pops up on eBay.

    Unneeded black? Where have you been? Cheerios box has been yellow with black. It's not a vain attempt to appeal to the Earnhardt crowd, it's a design element. And to fill the empty gaps with Dow Chemicals, tells me you need to learn design. You don't always have to fill space with something. Less is more. Why fill the empty space and dilute a simple logo. Let the logo do the work. And if anyone wants to see more 2014 schemes go here: http://www.jayski.com/schemes/paintschemes.htm
