  1. By wild I guess you meant totally stupid, right? Yeah really, if we're adding colors that are a part of the logo but aren't part of the color scheme, then what's the point of having team colors at all? Surprisingly, the NFL has few of these examples, but the Steelers in blue, the Cardinals in gold, and Minnesota in fleshtone is downright stupid. That's my biggest question with the future of Color Rush... which team(s) will do something really wacky? I don't think something like the Steelers in blue or the Cards in yellow is all that likely, but I could see someone coming out in all-grey that doesn't have it in their color scheme or a team taking Nike's trendy version of one of their team colors. In the very first game, we already had a team wear a version of a color that's not currently in their identity; it just sort of flew under the radar IMO because they've worn it in the past and many of us would like to see the kelly green come back.When that happens, it's truly the Nikepocalypse. Sure, it was fun to see bunches of random jerseys in college football. Throwbacks were fun, special event jerseys were fun, crazy ideas and versions of looks were a good time... but idk about you guys, but I have actual difficulty identifying teams. When you look different every week, and not just a single element, but wildly different, it is difficult to identify who you are. The NFL has had so many restrictions on alternate uniforms - only one of them, used twice per year, at home only, and you can only change it once every five years - because they know the importance of seeing any game on tv and even casual fans being able to identify both teams. I'm sure Nike has its selling points - more jerseys to sell, publicity and attention to NFL uniforms, chances to explore new looks - but there NEEDS to be limits on it all. It has to be a team color, this is a once-a-year thing at most, the jerseys cannot have unique patterns (it has to be the home or road jersey in different colors), and so on, or this will have a long-term negative effect on publicity and sales, and I hope they realize that. If anybody would, it's the NFL, but huge amounts of money tends to cloud the vision of even shrewd businessmen.

  2. Thanks for the comments. I made the Padres brown because it's a color that's unique to them (and there will be several teams in this series wearing solid yellow) but in hindsight the yellow would probably work better to create some contrast with the Mariners. In the meantime, here are the Giants and Dodgers.

  4. Am i the only one praying for the cats to make an another cinderalla run to the cup finals 20 years later just so we can see them wear something decent for as long as we can before switching over to these monstrosities?

  5. Source?Several previously mentioned in this thread. Also, we've already seen one of them. The Diamondbacks? Huh? Which team is that? There's no team by that name. There's one in Arizona called the DBacks though, maybe you mean them?

  6. I guess we'll be stuck with the stupid military shield because of their owner's past (who really gives a damn?) but otherwise this mock-up looks great! I'm guessing the owner of the team gives a damn. You might not give a damn, but you don't control the team, either. And that's what makes this whole thing so dumb as the fans clearly don't give a . The guy owns the franchise since what? Two years? And he feels like adding a personnal element (which will be the main uniform feature by the way) that doesn't go along the team name or history at all? Stephen Ross went to Michigan, would it makes any sense for the Dolphins to wear winged helmets because of it? Stephen Ross changed the traditional dolphin on the helmet, didn't he? When you're the owner, you call the shots. And any other team, we'd say it's time for a change. "Time to change up the look. The Panthers haven't done in 20 years," we'd say. No Stanley Cups. Not many accomplishments. Panthers fans aren't uber-traditional. If the owner wants to change it up, this is as good as team as any, really. Sure I have a soft spot for the current logo and the shoulder patch, but that's only because of nostalgia. These logos have been a part of a losing franchise for way too long. I get what you mean WSU and enjoy your arguments as always but Ross changed the traditional dolphin without going with anything related to himself or his alma mater that doesn't go along the rest of the uniform at all which would be both selfish and stupid. I can't stand the Panthers current Edge uniforms and welcome the change with open arms but going with a military style crest because you personnaly feel like it when your team never featured anything military is really weird. It doesn't go along hockey week great mockup at all...

  8. So much color, so much perfection. Of course the Padres would be better with yellow, but I see your point in them owning brown. It still looks good. Love the Dodgers too. Can't wait to see everything else!

  9. Interesting idea. What in the world are you going to do for the White Sox because I am not sure all black is the way to go.

  10. Personally, I'm tired of teams thinking they have to look like the Military. I'm honestly getting really tired of MLB teams wearing Camo and team identities using the Military as an excuse for lame uniforms, however, when I see people starting to put people in the Military down because of Military dress-up, I have a real problem with that. It is because of those people's services and sacrifices that we have the freedom we do today and also get to live in peace. They are the reason a lot of us don't have to go through what they have gone through. Anyway, that's a small rant from me. About the Panthers, I think it is a matter of execution. It will probably be a case of love it or hate it, probably the latter.

  13. If the panthers would just throw some hem stripes or some coyotes-esque tail stripe i would put their look in the top 10 in the league. Enough of these 1920's knock-off jerseys, they're not the canadiens or the blackhawks they're the the cats.

  17. Dodgers-Giants looks very good. The white brim and white shoulder piping were nice touches for Dodgers. I also kinda wish the Padres were yellow but the brown isn't bad. Looking forward to the other yellow teams.

  18. Very interesting idea, but I like it. The Mariners look really good, but I think the Padres need to go mono yellow.

  20. This is going to be horrible. What's with Florida teams named after large cats switching to military-inspired logos with awful uniforms?

  21. You know. It was the North Stars Cinderella run to the finals in 1981 that kept the green jersey from going black the following season. I think Florida has a great logo, secondary logo, and jersey. They look great the way they are. Why change? For a logo with a wood-mark. a stupid flag. And Montreal Canadiens striping? Bleh.

  22. When oh when is my team going to do something about this mess... It's so frustrating because if they had used the standalone black 'C' on the alternate, it would have been a good stepping stone towards phasing out the first edge look. The striping isn't quite as good as the pre-edge look but it's close enough. They fixed the sock striping, got rid of the piping, added a strong secondary logo and adapted a more legible number font. Not saying it would make them among the leagues best but at least it would bring them back to respectability.

  24. I was drinking and offer my apologies. Sometimes my passion for hockey aesthetics gets the better of me and while what Ice Cap said rubbed me the wrong way, I can see why my comment crossed the line of what's acceptable on these boards. I will try and channel my passion in a more constructive and less insulting way.

  25. TWO new BP cap styles for every team this upcoming season. One for Spring Training specifically, one for the rest of the year (I'm not sure if some teams will have multiple caps like some do already, but I'd assume so. I'm sure at least one team will probably have three or even maybe four). Both will feature the new league logo mark on the right side panel. Some teams BP caps will be the same, some will be slightly different, some will be dumb as hell and look really stupid. Oh, grey sweatbands on the new BP caps, too.
