  1. We should never accept fashion advice from a man who wears that belt.

  2. There's something very clever about a star with mountain peaks as its points. There's something very clever about a star with a negative-space mountain range defining its bottom angle. There's something very stupid about putting both on the same cap.

  4. The owners don't want to give up a revenue stream? Theres a shocker.... Have I gotten used to helmet ads? Yes. Do I like them? Hell no. Will this alter my viewing of the NHL product? nope.

  9. They just made $650 million from Seattle. There are more ads on the ice, ads on the glass, ad banners by the scorebug show up throughout the game. More split-screen ads every time there's a slight lull in play. Not a single team would face serious financial hardship if they got rid of the helmet ads. edit: Lol I forgot about the huge ESPN deal too. The NHL is rolling in money right now.

  13. Those All-Star hats look like they took the team logos from what would have been the Atlanta All-Star hats (navy and red) and added purple mountain stars and the new ASG patch. A very mish-mash (cheap) way to try to salvage those former designs.

  14. "The Bronx" is the borough's name, though. Leaving it off would be like using "Francisco" on a Giants jersey.

  15. And it is never a "jerk move" to defend your copyright. Even if they had waited until the league folded, so what? Somebody could have bought the league's assets out of bankruptcy and used them. And the NFL might not be able to do anything at that point, having failed to take action earlier.

  16. Sixers-Hawks is an excellent example of how simple, yet unique uniforms can look gorgeous, as well as giving us 3 distinctly different uniform games with no loss of "Who am I watching?" 2 of the best dressed teams in the league.

  20. The nets have 3 separate black uniforms, and the iconic Celtics have 2 greens and 2 whites. Now at least those are in team colors but that’s the problem, forcing teams to have 4-5 uniforms either gives us redundant alternates or uniforms nowhere close to the teams identity.

  21. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. Found this picture of my dad from 1948 and, of course, decided to do a modern template throwback to the uniform. The helmet is accurate (or maybe "accurate") but the pants are a complete guess. I've only seen grainy B and W pictures and the color is indistinct.

  23. You can roll your eyes, but given the amount of public consultation they did, maybe it *is* what everyone wanted. Or at least the people they heard from. I mean, take these numbers with a grain of salt, but if that's what they heard, then that's what they heard. And when your city has a flag as awesome as Chicago's, why not build around it? No other major pro sports team in the city has done so on a permanent basis.

  24. At least one of those jerseys should have a “Tampa Bay” wordmark or the “TB” insignia.

  26. At first I didn’t think it was that bad, but seeing that it’s a navy cap with red logos makes it much worse. Would’ve been a decent all star game cap if it was black or purple and silver instead.

  27. Miami learned that same lesson in 2014. It's all symptomatic of LeBron James Derangement Syndrome. Oldheads who can't bear that someone might be better than MJ, hangers-on (like me) who will excuse any action he takes, and the modern generation who kind of just wants him out of the way. Plus media personalities who are upset that they are routinely denied access and can't handle it. Building a winning team in the NBA is a combination of skill and luck. The Spurs were lucky their down years ended up with Robinson and then Duncan. The Raptors were lucky they had the assets to trade for Kawhi and KD and Klay went down in the Finals. The Warriors were lucky Steph was on a team-friendly contract following an ankle injury and that Kyrie and Love went down in the Finals and then the one-year cap bump and KD was willing to be fourth banana for three years. Cleveland was lucky LeBron was born in Akron and they had the assets to move for Love. There are no "pure" titles in the NBA. It takes good drafting, good signing, and good cap management. It helps to have superstar players who will draw in other lesser stay players to play for below-market contracts (Blake, Drummond). It helps to be in no income tax states. It helps to be healthy in the playoffs. The Miami titles are as valid as the 60s Celtics titles or the 80s Lakers or the 90s Bulls or 2010s Warriors.

  28. I've been pretty busy with my job and freelance work this past week, so it's been a while since I last got to work on CSL2. Nevertheless, here's the next team! Capital Division Sacramento East Arden-Arcade, CA Founded: 1988 Sacramento East was founded by some Sacramento State alumni who decided to feature a bee to reference their alma mater, which is home to the Hornets. Because the Capital Division currently lacked any red teams, I decided to use that to make Sac East stand out in a division full of yellow/gold teams. Inspired by the Charlotte Hornets and some proposed Watford FC logos, an illustration of a bee is found inside a gold hexagon, which is inside an NFL-style crest. The home kit is a simple gold kit with a hexagonal honeycomb pattern. The "Business 80" clash kit (very popular with the locals) references the Capital City Freeway's route through eastern Sacramento and the green shields of this unusual Interstate highway. The kits are supplied by Umbro and the sponsor is The Sacramento Bee newspaper.

  29. No way. This is absolutely crazy. Either the Suns, Clippers, Hawks or Bucks will win the title. If anyone said that at the start of the season, they’d have been ruthlessly made fun of lmao

  30. KD played 53 minutes. You can't hold against him he had no lift at the end. Anyone who says otherwise is a knucklehead. Durant was the best player of the series and he ran out of gas.

  31. I wish they would just do with the ASG BP caps the same as they did with the 2013 caps and just put out a host specific NL and AL cap instead of trying to cram everyone’s team logo onto the hat.

  35. last week the ACC Network aired a bunch of old Georgia Tech football games, I found myself watching GT vs UNC from 1999. This is was a good looking game. I don't usually like it both team wear light colors, but this was a beaut. Both teams should break out some 99 throwbacks next time the play each other. Would love to see this uni matchup in high def.

  36. I don't think there's anything to it, especially since the Rams design team was very upfront about their desire to take the branding to a digital space (see my interview following the unveiling). It's very similar to ESPN's three-dimensional team logos that you'll see during game broadcasts (particularly in the NBA).

  37. Fair enough. The silver is just fine, but I thought the red would be a bit more distinctive. Any feedback on the first two teams? Skipping the Red Sox for now to post my D-Backs tweak: I wanted to get my Arizona concept up while the D-Backs City Connect unis were still fresh in the news. I'm pretty disappointed the team kept their very generic black and Sedona red color scheme when three of the other City Connect teams so far have been treated to new color schemes by Nike, so this one undergoes some pretty significant changes. First, I replaced Sedona red with turquoise and added a turquoise outline to the script and back numbers. Second, I used pinstripes, as they add a bit more character to the design and are a nod to the D-Backs' classic original look. Third, even without having seen the full uniform on the field, I already know I'm not going to like the sand colored top + white pants combo, so I made the pants sand as well to complete the look. Once I get a clearer look at the triangle sleeve patch, I can add that to the socks and sleeve. C&C appreciated! The Red Sox are next (for real, this time).

  38. This is why the Chargers' mode of reveal was so refreshing. They started down that road, but about half a sentence into it, they were like, "Nahh....all you need to know is that we took the best...and made it better." I do remember a few infographics came out, but for the most part, that was it.

  39. I did this Cleveland Spiders' concept, and I'm trying out various color schemes. Obviously they could keep navy and red (in fact, my guess is they will), but rebranding is a good opportunity to reduce MLB's overabundance of navy/red teams. First, brown and scarlet. Completely unique color scheme in sports and an easy connection to the Cleveland Browns.

  41. The best example I can think of is the Broncos’ brown horse. In 1962, the Broncos changed their uniforms from their initial brown and gold to orange and blue. They also added a logo to the helmet for the first time. The dark logo didn't provide enough contrast against the orange helmet, so after a couple games the decals were replaced with white. Now here's where we get to the Mandela Effect. For years, the official word was that the initial 1962 helmet logo was brown. It appeared that way on throwback merchandise, and even people who ought to have known agreed; when a group of former Broncos players were asked, they confirmed the horse was brown. And who was to disagree? No known color photos existed. Press accounts of the time didn't specifically mention the decal color. So for years everybody thought it was brown, except for one Denver Broncos fan who posted comments on the Uni Watch site that he was at one of those games as a kid and the horse was blue. Even the team didn't know for sure, and so the logo was officially brown. The team said so, and fan sites dutifully repeated it. That is, until 2016, when the first known color photographs surfaced. And then, finally, more than half a century after the dark logos had taken the field, the Broncos could finally come out and confirm the real color. The collective memory had been proven wrong.

  42. Update: the Reds are wearing their red jerseys today at Milwuakee. They wore the road grays for the first two games of the series. Bolded: I generally agree. How good would the Cardinals look with the St Louis script (that they use on their cream alternates) on the road grays? However, I will make an exception to this rule for the Phillies because the name of the team also functions as a city identifier and Philadelphia is a lot of letters to use in that bubbly font.

  43. True but you’d be lying to yourself if you didn’t say they were similar and used a lot of the same design elements, down to stylized guy wearing a hat, with 3 tails, and the same color scheme.
