  1. "Cursed image #xxx" was a popular meme at one time.
  2. Before Hauptman sold his stake to Mansueto, the rumors were hot and heavy that the team would undergo a full rebrand to "Chicago City" for the move to Soldier Field. This is almost certainly somebody's concept, because it would clearly get the entire league sued out of existence.
  3. When Todd Radom can't salvage your team's name, you've really picked a stinker.
  4. If you described this jersey to me, I'd tell you it sounded like a horror show. But damned if it doesn't work, and work well. It's unconventional without being ridiculous or (Rocky Mountain) XTREEEEEEME. Very interested in seeing the name/number treatment and the full uniform for this one.
  5. We don't need this sports brand; let the mother er burn.
  6. It takes a lot of intentionally poor work to make every element of a crest look bad when one of those elements is a fleur-de-lis. Congrats to Oof Louisville on a top-to-bottom botching.
  7. Congratulations to Don Cherry on finally finding the line to cross that made CBC/Rogers do more than let him quietly sit out for a week. I now demand at least one week where Coach's Corner is seven solid minutes of Ron MacLean silently nodding and looking to his right.
  8. No thanks on road pinstripes, but the color's a great idea. There's even history to it, in the slate blue roads of the Pilots/'70 Brewers.
  9. I've never cared for road pinstripes, so that's a no from me. Everything else seems really nice, though. The shade of sand seems a lot closer to the '69 roads, and not nearly as urine-like as the '04 look. Everything seems like it's well thought-out and balanced, the shades of the colors work great together, and even though I preferred the '00s Swingin' Friar to this retro version, it looks fantastic here in that gleaming gold circle. Hopefully a hat with a gold front panel is soon to follow. I can't believe this team slogged along anonymously in navy and white for as long as it did.
  10. I never knew this, and damned if it doesn't explain just about everything!
  11. I know I'm basically a senior citizen on this board, but the notion of navy as an update/upgrade from a brighter shade of blue has been a point of broad derision around here ever since teams followed the St. Louis Rams' lead en masse in the early 2000s. I am more than happy to keep that sentiment going.
  12. The funny thing is that they just fixed this with the navy BiG last year or the year before!
  13. Before. it was an "m" and a "b" cleverly put together to resemble a baseball glove. Now, it's a poorly-drawn four-fingered baseball glove. Little changes, big difference. Kinda what this board is about in the first place.
  14. Boy, that turned out really nice. Putting a "classic" shoulder yoke on the jerseys also shows a willingness to modify the almighty template to give the client what they want as accurately as possible, which is very encouraging for future designs.
  15. "If it moves forward, the AFL may become a traveling league, similar to the Premier Lacrosse League, whereby all players practice in a centralized location and fly to a different city each weekend to play games." rofl no
  16. Miami, and Christ Almighty No.
  17. That Celtics jersey has "My first Concepts Forum post" written all over it. "Mom downloaded this font for the invites to our St. Patrick's party!"
  18. *double-checks thread title* *walks back out*
  19. I don't watch much NFL anymore, so I have no idea if this is new or not. But the Saints wore solid white pants on the road against the Bears today, and it's a look every bit as infuriating as their black leotards.
  20. Is 2020 going to be celebrated as the Brewers' 50th Anniversary season? I don't recall seeing anything this past year, but the team recognized 1994 as its 25th.
