    I'm offended that the Bills jerseys don't have Christmas trees and snowflakes on them.

    I don't know about you guys, but I think it's pretty clever that they put Joe Bruin's afternoon snack on the helmet. WHAT THE HOLY HELL? I thought this was TCU at first, which actually makes a modicum of sense. I'm waiting for the next big reveal when Duke puts a frozen raccoon on their helmet and Texas uses those blue space cat people from Avatar.

    I can understand the Heyward and Justin deals...guys entering their final year of their contracts and the Braves very likely weren't going to even compete in free agency. Get what you can for them. Their values are higher with a full year's worth of contract left instead of two months. Their returns brought back Shelby Miller and Jace Peterson amongst MLB-ready players, and a couple other pitchers and position players a couple years away. And I believe some international pool money, too. I got the Kimbrel deal because it served a dual purpose of shedding BJ Upton's mammoth contract. It also got the Braves a near MLB-ready pitcher in Matt Wisler, a veteran outfielder in Maybin, and a high draft pick. Having a top-notch closer doesn't do you much good if you're not leading after 8 innings very much. Having a Porsche doesn't do you much good if you're on a cruise ship. But, I don't quite get the Simmons deal. Sure, his contract escalates each season, but if the team philosophy is to get batters on base and have strong pitching, part of that concept should include being strong defensively. Simmons' bat is frustrating, but his glove alone makes up for that. So the haul is two pitching prospects and Aybar, who I guess is an upgrade offensively. Assuming he's on the roster April 1st. (He definitely won't be on the roster on August 1st.) They've acquired a ton of pitching prospects the last couple offseasons. That's great if they can be dealt for MLB-ready bats at some point. And it does help to have a pitching surplus, as we're seeing a growing number of arm/elbow/shoulder injuries with pitchers.

    If you're questioning the value of branding and being able to instantly identify the teams: Quote from Uni-Watch today: "If you had a hard time adjusting to the Bills wearing red, you weren’t the only one. Buffalo coach Rex Ryan offered this quote after the game: “Hell, I look out there and my team’s in red. Blue, I might have had a chance. But I’m like, ‘Who are they? Oh shoot, that’s us.'” Nice job, NFL."

    That's sexist, yo. Well, it might feel vaguely sexist, except it's sounds like something my grandpa's drill Sargent would've said back in the "Big One". Actually, now that I think of it, isn't it normally something about loosening your panties? As in "your panties are in a bunch"? I guess when you're dusting off 75 year old zingers, it's hard to get them perfect.

    Perhaps, but can you give me an example of how they have done this in the past? I honestly think it is due to underwhelming viewership on Thursdays, and that alone. I think it is a short term project to get people to watch on Thursdays. Much like the Pro Bowl uniforms. Hi, Bort. My son is also named Bort. No, these have nothing to do with boosting viewership. These are about Nike marketing Nike and the league taking extra cash to allow for such blatant whoring. That's why they didn't wear white or blue pants, like people suggested. All red vs. all green. There were probably millions of tweets last night about how awful the game looked, and nearly as many dopes saying the jerseys were "ill" or some equivalent there of. There were hundreds of articles written about the game mentioning the shoulder-to-toe colors are part of the leagues "Nike Color Rush program." That's why it was done. Nike doesn't care that the game looked liked festering anus. They cared that people are talking about Nike products so much.

    this is fake right? RIGHT?! It is real. It's supposed to be a tribute to the US Navy SEALS for their Military Appreciation Day. The logo on the helmet is simliar to the bone frog tattoo that many Navy SEALs get. The recent connection I can find between UCLA and SEALs is that they've trained with some during the off-season. Next thing you know, we'll see a Green Beret appreciation uniform because an assistant coach passed by one at a Bloomingdale's during lunch one day.

    . C'mon ... admit it ... with the exception of the Cleveland Browns new helmets, their next remake can't possibly come soon enough. It's so very tragic for this to happen to such a historic and traditional franchise with among one of the most dedicated fan bases. I mean geez,... those orange jersey numbers and nobs on their brown jerseys, along with those word-marks on their pants, and the word-mark being so large on the jersey makes me wanna barf. Thank goodness Paul Brown isn't still alive to of seen them.

    Its not that this game looks THAT bad. It just gives me the uneasy feeling that the NFL is easing its way into becoming college football. "its just on Thursdays so no big deal" yeah thats how it works. its the first step to bringing this kind of thing to our sacred sundays

    You've had a week to marinate on this one, and still, the best defense for this concept you have is "It only sucks for one game, and you guys who discuss sports uniforms on the internet are probably nerds."Put in more effort if you want to maintain your troll game. You're coasting. And, as Deadspin has mentioned: Nike has made this game literally unwatchable for about 6% of the male population.

    This is an idea I've tried before... trying to find some new real estate for the Charger's jersey bolts. I don't like the current treatment, and the old style shoulder bolts would be really squeezed on a modern template. This idea kind of follows the Seahawks' and Browns' use of the front upper chest area. As always, thoughts and comments are welcome.

    Your... Pizza Crust? I read cicis like "kikis" and I don't like it. Upgrade though, the old one was garbage. I don't think there was anything wrong with the old one. It was the right colors for a place that makes pizza, and it was kind of silly and folksy without taking itself too seriously, which is perfect for an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet for $5 or whatever it is now. It also makes me kind of hungry for pizza. The new one does not make me hungry and does not even make me think of food. It seems kind of cold and sterile.

    Three-on-three hockey is an abomination, but NO TIES, TIES NEVER. Again, the third/one-point outcome is the problem, not anything else. If the only choice is whether you win or lose -- not win, lose, or kinda lose but not really -- there won't be any problems. I'd like to look at the last five years of playoff overtime games and see how many end relatively promptly (that is to say within the first ten minutes of the first overtime). I suspect most do.

    I may be in the minority, but I really feel Carolina's basic set (silver-black-silver and silver-white-white) is just about perfect as is. In fact, they're in my top five NFL sets and have been for many years. I don't want to see much done at all to them for a very long time. The helmet stripes get a lot of flak, but they've never really bothered me. For one, even though I know they're not claw marks, the stripes have that sort of feel to them, which fit the identity. And regarding the stripe color, the stripes are a little thinner at the start before they taper. They being black helps them to be a bit bolder to make up for the width; if you invert the colors, they're just not going to stand out very well, I think. I also suppose they've been around so long that, in my eyes, they just look right. Granted they probably look like they "shouldn't" work, but to me, they do. I also think - in regards to the set as a whole - if you tried to change the helmet and/or pants stripes to something more traditional (meaning straighter rather than tapered), it would take away from what I feel to be the set's core strength: a traditional base design that is modernized to fit a swift, "slashy" cat theme. It appears to, from a distance, already look like a rather traditional uniform, yet up close you can see modern elements which set Carolina apart. I wouldn't really want them to lose that, because I feel they've done it so well. And it's been thier look for 20 years. Any further change or even a rebrand, I feel, would be merely change for changes sake rather than an improvement.

    Japan looks great, Spain looks great, Russia looks good (I think the sublimation detracts from both jerseys). And I actually love how the socks stripe separates the solid white from the solid white of the shorts while harkening to the jersey colors (although I still think the jersey could have been designed better). Some very solid work by Adidas.

    Man after such success with Indy, Ottawa, and Jacksonville, I thought NASL had this whole expansion thing figured out after the failures of OKC and North Virginia. Then…. Puerto Rico I raised my eyes, but overall I think it might work. Its got a famous investor, they seem to be doing it right, and the support should be there. Plus, it'll be a fun road trip some day. Miami FC really made me question their thought process. Why move a team into a similar market to an existing (and struggling) team where a MLS team is right around the corner…well maybe…depends on what day. And in the end, that's why that MAY work. Beckham can't get his stuff together and perhaps Miami FC may be the only game in town. Plus, crazy rich investors. Even if I'd rather see them elsewhere…I can see the logic. Plus, it'll be a fun road trip some day. Rayo OKC. I just don't get it. The thing many NASL fanboys make fun of MLS fanboys for is the affiliate teams like Chivas and NYCFC. I get that USL burned you. You had announced an OKC team and stuff happens. They swooped in and took the market. Not exactly a nice thing to do, but whatever. Move on. Instead you're doing a farm team for a spanish team nobody has heard of, in a high school in the suburbs, in a metro area that already has a decently successful soccer team playing downtown. I hope I'm wrong and OKC can properly support 2 professional clubs. But I can't see it. This team either fails, or succeeds at the cost of OKC Energy. Neither option is a good one. Also, if your'e going to do this, don't ignore the Energy. Go full on and say you're #1 goal is to beat OKC Energy in the open cup. Make it fun! Maybe the plus in this is the NASL is making their foreign team mistake in year 6 vs. MLS making theirs in year 12, so by that logic, NASL is growing faster than MLS!!!!

    Oh man, I wouldn't wish that upon poor Peyton. And I don't think the cap penalty would have mattered. Peyton is a smart guy, there is no way he honestly would have thought that he was a better fit in Washington than in Denver. The only players that come to Washington are free agents looking to get PAID so they can coast the rest of their career comfortably. Peyton isn't that. And last part of my self-deprecating rant: If that picture above was real and Peyton did sign with the Redskins, is there ANY chance he'd still be playing right now? I say, none whatsoever and his legacy would be tarnished. You'd have to remember his career in spite of what he did as a Redskin. If that picture was real, realistically we'd all be talking like: "Wow, can you believe it's already been 2 years since Peyton Manning died? Remember him?"
