  1. That's good, because it means Nike didn't radically change a uniform again to make it "street-cool" with "bone" and gradients or something to that effect.

  2. I'm seeing way too many people on social media say "props to Man City and Chelsea for listening to the fans and pulling out." No! They deserve no props, because they were just as willing to make this Super League happen as every other team. They're just trying to save face after the backlash was way way more than they expected. Props to Bayern, Dortmund, and PSG, who told the ESL no from the start. Props to FIFA and UEFA (I hate saying that) for coming out as strong as they did against it. Props to all the governments - UK, France, Germany, Spain, and more - that pledged to do everything they could to fight it. We shouldn't be celebrating the clubs who were all in with this until it became financially unwise to continue.

  3. The benchmark for a good redesign shouldn’t be “whether the casual fan can notice a difference.” What a load of rubbish. They took a cliche early 2000s over designed mess, stripped it down to the essential elements and came up with a clean design that still clearly reads as the Bengals. That’s a win in my book. My only complaint is the white pant with the outlined orange stripe that everyone has talked about. Matches nothing else. Should just be a black and orange panel like they’ve done for decades. I was also intrigued by the possibility of orange pants. I feel that could have been a nice look on the road or paired with the black jersey, similar to how the Jaguars use their teal pants on occasion. Overall, this is an upgrade.

  6. At first, I didn't mind the number font, I even extended it to see how good it was. Then the rest of the font got released including an alphabet... A National Football League team released this, not an amateur on DaFont: (as retrieved from the Bengals' "New Stripes" page, presentation put together by me; if you know, you know) You got paint splatter claw mark alternates, weird curve stretching on the B, P, and R, inconsistent letter widths, and weird letters with both flat and sliced ends like the C, S, and 3.

  9. Attaching a concept that I was hoping Nike would include when they did the 2019 rebrand. Based this one around a modified version of the classic 78-97 wordmark logo, changing the top "fin" to include a stylized jet contrail/vapor trail (in perspective going right to left). Also I would like to credit user Darth Brooks for his Nike vapor untouchable template used here- I made a back view of this template myself also which I will gladly share with anyone who would like it. Thanks and I would appreciate any feedback!

  11. This has been one of the quietest and shortest post-uniform revealed threads that I have ever seen. Maybe the polarization of last seasons Rams and Falcons threads got me used to going through 50 pages at a time. But this is good as well.

  12. Have seen an alarming amount of “why are people siding with UEFA and FIFA on this?????” comments on other mediums. No one is actively rooting for these two awful organizations to succeed - everyone is simply coming together against a worse alternative. Also re: FSG potentially selling Liverpool. I’ve pretty much always been pro-FSG since Klopp was hired because once they did that they never really meddled in the club and even if they restricted the transfer budget, they made a good enough decision by hiring Klopp that he was able to develop their bargain buys into superstars. Not to mention that a change in ownership is extremely risky because there is no quicker way to destroy a football club than through a terrible owner. So the idea of FSG, a stable, generally good ownership group with minor annoyances here and there, making way for a potentially much worse option always scared me. Now, though? After trying to pull this crap? And not only trying to pull it, but apparently being one of the “ringleaders?” I can’t wait to see them gone. It did always feel slightly icky rooting for LFC knowing that if we won it would benefit the man who owns the Red Sox.

  13. all of the lads who build fake news Twitter accounts to try to catch people offguard for retweets are having a field day with this one, so I’d be generally very wary of any news you see that’s not on a major website on this right now.

  23. The Panthers are another team that need to lose the TV numbers. Those minuscule little digits are just stupid and the whole jersey is way too cluttered. Although, like the Patriots, they could just drop the repetitive sleeve logo and put numbers there.

  24. Except when I look at them, I don't see the Red Sox. There are looks that are released that look good. From an aesthetic standpoint, I had very little issue with the Astros' red-and-black uniform set. From a history standpoint, there was absolutely no connection to the established Astros colors and that was my biggest gripe with them. Same issue for me with these Boston city uniforms. I'm glad for Boston that they honor the city, and the uniforms look good. But to me, the Red Sox are navy and red and these uniforms don't have either of those colors. Throw in the fact that it's really just a reason for Nike and MLB to sell more merchandise and it makes the idea of these uniforms even worse.

  25. From a player’s perspective, the end result of a Super League is almost certainly lower player wages, perhaps drastically so, either through a formal salary cap in the competition, or simply through the impacts of a closed cartel system. The massively-in-debt clubs are already paying players a great deal of money in order to keep up with their gargantuan peers (and would very much like to stop doing that), and if you only have 15 clubs that represent the “highest level” of competition — with potentially slashed revenues for clubs outside that group — it’s pretty damn easy to drive down wages in the long run, particularly in a sport where there is no shortage of elite-level talent.

  26. Personally, pretty surprised that there were no orange pants. Also thinking that the wordmark and the number are a tad too close together, but maybe that's just me.

  28. It feels like 95% of the replies in the NBA forums turn immediately to how Nike has ruined the NBA, people can't figure out who's playing who and the use of non-team colors for the City Edition jerseys. I get the frustration ... to a point. For every Miami or Utah City Edition you get complete garbage like New York and Chicago. Not to mention the Lakers-Celtics match ups where neither team is wearing team colors or the Lakers are wearing gold in Boston against a Celtics team dressed in green. It's a mess. But, it's not NOT fixable. I think Nike and the NBA need to set some rules or standards for the league and individual teams that honor tradition and give fans the most optimal looking match up. I thought creating a discussion thread to hash out thoughts would also clear the 2020-21 and 2021-22 NBA jersey threads from the constant loop of complaints whenever there is a new reveal. Here are my thoughts on the system and how to fix it ... PROS OF THE NIKE/NBA SYSTEM Color vs. Color match ups. When done right they are absolutely beautiful! Standardizes the uniform system (Association, Icon, Statement, City, Earned, Classic). Teams 2-3 alternate courts or court designs depending on which Edition Jersey they are wearing at home. This helps make some City Edition designs palatable and throwback games more fun. Teams that make the playoffs the season before are rewarded and are visually singled out for that accomplishment. When done right some City Edition jerseys have worked really well within the team's brand and even location (ie - Utah, Miami, Phoenix and Brooklyn). CONS OF THE NIKE/NBA SYSTEM 1-2 year turnaround on City Edition jerseys (maybe three or more, who knows anymore?) City Edition jerseys often use non-team colors and are "off-brand." It feels like there are too many uniform editions (4-6 jerseys per team depending on playoff appearance and throwbacks) Past traditions have been thrown out -- most notably with the Lakers wearing white for Sunday games, gold for road games and purple at home, etc. Match ups don't often make sense with teams wearing differing Edition Jerseys -- the biggest crime being a team wearing a City Edition jersey vs. a team wearing a Classic Edition jersey. Why? Ads on the jerseys. This isn't really a problem within the system Nike built ... I just want to complain about it. Now with that said, here are a few things I'd love for the NBA and Nike to fix or standardize with the current system ... Establish traditions and honor them, like ... The Lakers don't wear their gold Icon Edition on the road. They only wear their white Association Edition jersey at home on Sunday and holidays. They don't wear their purple Statement Edition jersey at home. Encourage teams to create new traditions like wearing Color vs. Color jerseys against Division rivals or adopting a gold (or other light color) at home and white at home on Sunday/holidays like the Lakers. During the NBA Playoffs, and more so during the NBA Finals, limit the teams to Association, Icon and Statement Edition jerseys. No City or Classic Editions. White jerseys are worn exclusively at home by the home team. Color vs. Color match ups are encouraged when there's enough contrast (Icon vs. Icon, Statement vs. Statement, Icon vs. Statement). Eliminate the Earned Edition jersey and instead visually single out playoff teams with silver Nike swoosh and the champion with a gold Nike swoosh (or gold NBA Trophy logo where the league logo is placed now for the following season?). Basically there's no need for ANOTHER jersey, just honor the clubs or the champion subtly. Keep the City Edition Program, but alter the program. In the spirit of Utah and Miami's use of the program, keep a theme for a minimum of 3-5 seasons with a new jersey every 1-2 seasons within that theme and style guide. Along with this encourage teams to invest in a City Edition court they can match with their theme and jerseys that they can change yearly or for as long as keep that theme. Just please no City Edition jerseys on standard courts, it looks bad. Also, keep City Edition match ups to a maximum one time between teams and focus on city rivalries like the Lakers/Clippers, Brooklyn/New York, Philadelphia/New York, Orlando/Miami, Dallas/Houston/San Antonio, etc. Establish Edition match up protocols, for instance if the home team selects to wear an Association, Icon or Statement jersey the road team has to chose one of their clashing Association, Icon or Statement jerseys for the match up. If the team chooses a City Edition jersey the road team has to wear their City Edition jersey. Sure there's worry of jerseys not clashing, but this can be avoided through scheduling and design. Adopt MLB's protocol for the Classic Edition jerseys. One of my biggest pet peeves is seeing Classic Edition jerseys ... or throwbacks ... being worn against current jerseys, different era throwbacks and alternate jerseys. I love an immersive experience for throwback jerseys. Teams who are wearing a Classic Edition that season will play their home games against teams dressed in the same eras jerseys. So if the Orlando Magic are wearing their original pinstripe jerseys for the season and are playing against the Atlanta Hawks, the Hawks would dress up in their Pacman or Pacman 2.0 jerseys for the match up. If the Indiana Pacers wore their ABA throwbacks against teams like Utah, Dallas, Charlotte or LA Clippers they could also wear ABA throwbacks for the Stars, Chaps, Cougars and LA Stars respectively for that match up. This could possibly open the door for the Bulls to play as the Stags, Wizards as the Capitols and Raptors as the Huskies to name a few. Make the experience immersive and the league can do some limited run on these throwbacks to push jersey sales to make up for the elimination of the Earned Edition jerseys. Establish a status quo for each Edition, for example where the City Edition and Classic Edition aren't worn more than 6-8 times each. Keep the Association and Icon Editions the bulk of the schedule unless tradition includes the Statement Edition (ie-Lakers I'd love to hear other ideas and what you would do.

  29. I’ve been so enthralled and captivated by the European Super League BS, that I didn’t even have a chance to look at this lmao. I love this update. My only minor, minor gripes are the same as voiced in this thread prior. I’ll echo the sentiment that I wish the away jersey had a little bit more orange and that I was the white pants with orange tiger stripes had black instead of white space between the stripes and perhaps a thicker outline on the numbers. But overall, and especially when comparing this to their previous set, this has to be an A. Only a couple of small, minor details keep it from being an outstanding update, but if I’m a Bengals fan, I’d be absolutely thrilled regardless.

  31. Sorry but it's a hard disagree on this one. FIFA and UEFA may be being run awfully by people who are varying degrees of gross but they're built on ideas which are solid and proper. This is a terrible idea from the start which only exists because a bunch of really gross super rich dudes want to get somehow even more wealthy whilst screwing over everyone else.

  32. LOL this is hilarious. Never underestimate the power of complaining en masse. As an OSU fan I would hate an NCAA Super League. Now, if a collection of rich dicks banded together and created a 14 team Junior NFL outside of the NCAA for kids who don't want to go to college and want to make 100 grand as 18 year olds then I might watch that.

  33. As others have mentioned, the Browns had orange pants and didn't bust them out until mid season. It wouldn't surprise me at all if they "surprised" everyone by going full orange for a TNF, SNF, or MNF game. It's entirely too soon to assume there's not orange pants.

  35. I'm mixed on these. Is it an improvement? Yes. Could they have been even better? Yes. The things that disappoint are the achromatic uniforms. Just awful. Same with the color rash uniforms (which really isn't a color - it's achromatic). No orange pants is a huge disappointment as well. Why do need "Bengals" on the jerseys, above the numbers? Is this for the casual fan who doesn't know what team he/she is watching? Really stupid that teams keep doing this. It's the NFL. We don't need the team names anywhere, especially with the teams and the score being perpetually in the chyron. The good include the striping, the lack of piping and the drop shadows. The word "clean" is way overused and stupid, so I'm going to say that the jerseys are less cluttered. They're simpler and therefore better. The uniforms over all are less cluttered and simplified and that includes the pants and no more goofy striping ala the awful Broncos uniforms.

  37. I'm sorry but I just don't understand the praise here. To me, these are very underwhelming. I would say a casual observer, who paid even a little bit of attention to teams and uniforms and aesethtics, wouldn't be able to tell much of a difference between this and the previous set, unless you showed them the differences side by side.

  41. Update: The man receiving the Vulcan Nerve Pinch in this picture had his two game suspension upheld. The man grabbing an opponent by the neck remains unpunished. It defies logic, the MLB's "Let the kids play" marketing campaigns, and the video evidence of the incident. The only lesson is: DISRESPECTING THE GAME WHEN THE ST LOUIS CARDINALS ARE INVOLVED IS A SERIOUS CRIME.
