    Thanks! And thank you guys for helping us to improve the set. Time for the only African team on the series, South Africa! In order to create an unique set, specifically to differentiate from Australia, we've reduced the amount of green (which now is Kelly green instead of Forest green) and gold used, featuring the flag on the sleeves, using its colours for the numbers and socks. The flag has also inspired the alternate uniform, using the placket from the template to mimic its design.

    All this. Look, there's only so much you can do with a classic basketball look. You can't try anything particularly innovative, and you also can't stray too far from history. For a classic team, all you've got to work with is the number font and the trim. You're not getting too wacky with it. For the Lakers, this is all you can really do to make something new. Otherwise you're staying put, or going straight up throwback. And really, I'm okay with going somewhere new like they did. With the Showtime uniforms, those are Magic's. Those are Kareem's. Had the Lakers never changed (and they didn't have to. It's still their best look.) and kept it through the Kobe/Shaq era, then those would be their uniforms to the end of time. But they did change for the Kobe/Shaq era, and those are modern classics of their own. As McCarthy said, they were an excellent update for a modern age. And because the Lakers have changed, that leaves them open to change for another new era. And that's what this is. Yeah, the striping is a little off, but I still like it. It's clean. And I've already said I'm a fan of the yellow numbers on purple. This is a nice, simple look. In line with modern bold stylings, but still classic in feel. I dig it. Can you dig it?

    Fans, for the most part, weren't angry with Durant for leaving OKC. They were pissed that he joined a 73-win team that had just embarrassed him in the playoffs and had already won a ring without him. Of course fans aren't going to be happy when one of the best players makes an uncompetitive move that makes the league's product worse for years to come. If he had joined any of the other teams he was considering instead of the Warriors, OKC fans would have been the only ones upset. This is a huge distinction that gets conveniently ignored by players and the media because it doesn't fit the pro-player/anti-team narrative.

    I disagree. Grey is the one colour that, beyond a shadow of a doubt, doesn’t stick out. I look at the Browns’ helmet with a white mask vs one with a grey mask (I’m old enough to have vivid memories of both in action). The white mask was way more prominent than the grey, despite grey not appearing anywhere else in the uniform. Same with the 49ers. The old red mask stood out way more than the subdued grey mask currently does. And I could go on. To me grey masks, with very few exceptions, just work so well because they specifically don’t draw attention to themselves. That’s ridiculous. I can prefer classic designs for hockey uniforms without wanting teams to go back to wool sweaters. While I feel a majority of teams would look their best with grey masks? I’m of the opinion that other neutral colours like white and black can also work in certain situations. The black Vikings mask, for example, looks great for many of the same reasons I like grey masks on the Browns and 49ers.

    They've also been using a powder blue background for the logo on social media handles, I think they are going to make it the primary over the navy when they go into the new stadium.

    The assumption is that “tribe” inherently refers to a group of indigenous people and is, by definition, incongruous with any imagery that’s not indigenous. I don’t necessarily think that’s the case. When your nickname is abstract and conceptual (Cardinal, Big Green, Hoosiers, etc.) as opposed to representing a physical thing, you have much more room to choose the symbol that represents it, and there’s really no right or wrong at that point. By moving away from the native imagery, William & Mary have, for all intents and purposes, taken that step toward an abstract name rather than a representational one. Anything can be a symbol of a tribe. They chose a griffin, probably for its physical characteristics and what it represents in mythology. I’d even argue that feathers are the laziest symbol to represent “tribe,” for better or worse. That’s not to say it’s bad, but it’s definitely the lowest hanging fruit in the American lexicon.

    BUFFALO RHINOS Founded 2000 moved to Buffalo 2017 Based In Buffalo, NY Home Field New Era Field Head Coach Buddy Zimmer Offensive Coordinator Wade Simon Defensive Coordinator Greg Flaherty General Manager Dave DeClerq Owner(s) Buffalo Sports & Entertainment Group Inc (managing partner Jim McCaskin) Colors Red & Silver MLF Championships none Overview: Buffalo lost in the MLF Championship game to end an amazing whirlwind year. The team was all set to move to Las Vegas and transfer of ownership had already begun to Robert Sheldon when he was indicted for Money Laundering after an FBI sting. The MLF had to change plans in hurry & since no ownership group came forward from Las Vegas the league turned unto Jim McCaskin the owner of the Major League Hockey franchise Buffalo Bisons who was in the running for buying the franchise initially. Buddy Zimmer the former head coach of Tampa Bay had been the head coach in 2016 and had started building pieces to change this franchises fortunes. QB Curt O'Hara was brought in from Tampa Bay & the defense led by DT Tank Adams & LB Keith Ponder was one of the best in the league. The team name was going to be changed but the city of Buffalo fell in love with this team so they look to be going forward with the name Rhinos.

    Hey all! Decided to do a fun jersey series during this NBA offseason. These fun alternate jerseys I will be making will all reflect the team name and team name only, as you will see, quite literally. I will be moving down in order of division in each conference and in order of city name in each division. I will kick this series off with these three teams: Boston Celtics: The same look as the Celtics' mascot Brooklyn Nets: Quite literally the weaving of a basketball net. New York Knicks: Since many of you may not know what a Knick is, its short for Knickerbocker, which is an older term for a New Yorker. Thus, the retro vest and tie top and brown pants. More will be coming soon if y'all like this series idea! Template credit to therealpepman

    WOW...how long ago was that? I'm trying to think the last time I was actively on here. And the irony of being a snob over names of colors while accusing others of being dismissive and gatekeeping is THICK. If you're that hurt over calling it purple and green, and enough to tag me in it, then I feel absolutely justified in lobbing shots at you in your ivory tower of color naming specifics. I stand by everything I've said, and all love for this third is nostalgia-only, because top to bottom, this jersey is a mess.

    A “tribe” is just a group of people who share similar values and interests and often cohabitate in their specific division of society (e.g. a collegiate athletic team or a student body). It’s often associated with groups of indigenous people, but that’s not an inherent part of the definition. Props to them for finding a way to make it work without resorting to a silly, made-up name.

    I’d actually argue that gray can stick out just as much. The Bills and Colts are two examples. To me, the helmet is as much a part of a team identity as the primary logo and should therefore try to use team colors. With few exceptions, teams with no gray or silver should not have gray masks.

    Count me in on Team Hate 'Em. It's jarring to see a grey piece of equipment on teams that don't have grey/silver in their color schemes (Cardinals, Bills, Colts, 49ers). If they can color the shoes, belts, gloves, tape, etc. then facemasks are fair game. Cardinals - should have a black facemask Bills - blue Cowboys - blue, if they can ever decide which shade to use Colts - blue Raiders - black 49ers - red Buccaneers - just blow it up already Giants and Lions are OK, although I'm not completely sold on the Lions 'chrome' look.

    I think just about every team with a "classic" uniform would look even better with a gray facemask - assuming they don't already use gray like Dallas, Indianapolis, NY Giants, etc.

    NEW YORK (BASEBALL) GIANTS, PT. 1 - Gotto Makes a Giant Contribution Ah yes, it's time to do my favorite team in the previous incarnation! When trying to assess why the Giants left New York City, one can point to a variety of factors. These factors included, but were not limited to: 1. The poor condition of the Polo Grounds, due to a lack of funds (the team and stadium rentals were Horace Stoneham's only asset) and hasty construction of the building. 2. Changes in transportation necessitated the need for larger parking lots. Unfortunately for the Giants, much of the land was taken up by Robert Moses' (I have yet to read Power Broker, which I'm hoping to rectify soon) housing projects and other plans. Moses eventually planned to tear down the Polo Grounds in 1962 (one the Giants' lease was up), with speculation about moving them into Yankee Stadium (the Flushing Meadows site wasn't in the works just yet).1 3. The team spent the post-WWII period in a bit of a freefall, with many poor finishes throughout the time (aside from the 1951 pennant and 1954 World Series). 4 (and the biggest one, IMHO). Demographic changes in Harlem, the Polo Grounds' Manhattan neighborhood, ensured that the Giants would not be viable in the long run. The Depression and World War II had a marked impact on the area, with many wealthy white residents leaving the area (for both economic and racist reasons - "White Flight"). Due to the increasingly poor conditions of the neighborhood (due to neglect from government programs and a lack of legitimate employment options for many of the African-American and Latin American residents), crime increased.2 With fewer local fans having disposable income for games or a willingness to walk within the "sketchy" area (one created by both racism and apathy), attendance declined. This is the factor that drove the other ones (renovations, transport, competition, etc.). Stoneham believed that fans would feel safer if they could drive from the suburbs to the stadium, but the lack of parking prevented that. TL;DR: This .gif, but with Son Goku as socio-economic/competitive factors and Frieza as the New York Baseball Giants. However, what if the move didn't go through? What if the team became the Yankees' tenants or found a way to build a Manhattan stadium, set up shop at Flushing Meadows (in the unlikely event that the Dodgers stayed in Brooklyn), or pre-empted the Football Giants by heading to New Jersey? What would these baseball Giants look like? When setting out on this project, I figured that the baseball Giants would not look all that different from the current San Francisco squad. I tried to approach their New York incarnation from the same angle as the team's 2000 redesign, tastefully updating the 1950s/60s uniform set. However, I wanted to incorporate a bit of the Mets' fantastic identity into the design (outside of the "NY," sourced from my previous Mets concept). So, I reasoned that the baseball Giants would want a new primary logo to celebrate a "revival" of sorts, one designed by a very certain Ray Gotto. The new primary is pretty much be the same as the Mets' classic logo, albeit with the Brooklyn elements obscured (e.g., the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building no longer features, done by using the post-digitization version of the logo) and the bridge being a general suspension bridge (maybe the George Washington Bridge?). The Giants' one-color wordmark is at the center. The tertiary minimizes the primary to a smaller design, with both the cap insignia and the 1883 establishment date. The wordmark font is Ocean Beach Major with modifications, as it's a fantastic modernization of the Giants/Pirates' font style. The uniforms are pretty much the same as my San Francisco Giants concept, but with some notable differences. The number font and the NOB's/white-base home uniforms are off of my Seals/retro Giants concept, while the new primary logo resides on the sleeves. I kept arched wordmarks, as the logo implied that the Giants are named after the giant skyscrapers of the city. Arching does a better job of invoking that compared to arc-ed wordmarks (which work in San Francisco, with the Giants referring to the "giant" bridges of the city - my flimsy rationalization of the name). The alternates bear a great similarity to my old Giants concept as well, with an orange-billed cap paired with an orange top and a black alternate that has the cap logo as an insignia. The second set of alternates pairs the orange-billed cap with the home uniform and contains the throwback to 1933 from my previous concept (featuring @Gothamite's preferred "NY"). It's "different enough" from the current set that it'd work. The dugout jacket is an update of my SF Giants jacket, albeit with the new primary logo and the "NY" on the back. I just love that vintage cursive script. It's a pretty simple concept, emulating the Giants' 2000 redesign while incorporating a few Mets-like elements. C+C is appreciated, as always! Up next, let's take that Mets influence a little further. 1Robert F.
