  1. I'd be fine with the Astros switching to orange caps and orange undershirts at home like they did in the early 1970s and for Saturday home games when they first introduced the current uniform set. The look on the road with navy caps and undersleeves are perfect except I wish they would return to the navy caps with the orange bills, which is what they used to wear on the road before slowly going to the solid navy caps late in 2017.
  2. I don't like ASG league uniforms. Part of the appeal of the ASG for me was seeing the different uniforms, especially when the players lined up on the baselines during intros. I even liked when the A's would wear different-colored tops among their own players.
  3. In the case of the Dolphins, the clamor is for a better uniform. In the case of the 49ers, this uniform is inferior to the current set, which is a modern version of the uniform set in which they won 4 Super Bowls. They won 1 SB in it, not 4.
  4. Robert Smith is full of it. I saw a reference to it in the late '80s and wondered what the deal was.
  5. I would bet Nike has more input than you think. This is not to say they order teams to have certain uniforms. But external designers and the clients usually work together with brainstorming and creative sessions. The creative process probably works with Nike and team officials brainstorming ideas together. Then Nike goes and draws us some stuff and the teams say yes or no or tweak. But I'd be willing to bet at least half of the process is Nike's brainchild (especially with regard to overall design).
  6. That's the aim since the demo buying these hats will likely be the demo that would buy hats at a shady custom kiosk in the mall.
  7. I'm fine with pullovers returning. But certain teams should never have a pullover. The Yankees and Dodgers come to mind -- they never went pullover. The Phillies never went pullover, either, save for the time Pete Rose wore his maroon BP top in the '79 ASG. The Red Sox, Cubs, Cardinals, Giants and Tigers (road) should fall in that category, too, even though they succumbed to the '70s trends. And I would not want to see them return to that. Everyone else? Have at it, though I still prefer buttons to pullovers.
  8. The 1975 Astros bulls-eye on the back of the jerseys. The rainbow stirrups also didn't stick around long, but I think they might have been around for 1976, too.
  9. 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.
  10. That's the way it starts. You give them an inch, they take a mile. NBA teams play 82 games. How often do they wear their standard uniforms? The NBA doesn't even stick to standard home and away designations any more. And we have MLB teams who already wear their alternates too much and/or have too many alternates (looking at both Florida teams, just to pick two). Furthermore, the problem with this series, much like the holiday uniforms, is that if I go to a game, I want to see a certain team in its regular uniforms. I don't want to see a team wearing an outfit that is not in its regular color palette. I want to see the Red Sox, not UCLA. Eventually, this and/or other special uniform series will spread to all 30 teams. This could easily get out of control.
  11. Was not photoshopped. It's a Getty image. https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/today-show-crew-jayne-kennedy-brent-musburger-and-irv-cross-news-photo/137259515
  12. Add this to the list of things Pro Football Talk gets wrong. Clickbait site with half-baked and sensational opinions run by a total douchebag.
  13. Good to see Arkansas finally ditched the colored side panels on their uniforms.
  14. Bucs wore red jerseys and lost to the Chiefs at home earlier this season. That might be another reason they opted for white.
  15. Given the Chiefs beat the Bucs in Tampa with the Bucs wearing red at home, it would not surprise me to see the Bucs opt for white jerseys. The Bucs are 5-0 in white jerseys and pewter pants this season.
