    The BLUE and YELLOW plates they have now are perfect, classic with just enough modern...  Why are they changing them again??? And what is Excelsior???  I thought these were to honour Stan Lee with that on there...

     It’s the state motto which translate to “ever upward” or similar.. just like our taxes and cost of living!

    Something interesting to think about is that license plate holders would cover the bottom of #5 and you wouldn't be able too see the imagery very well. 

     

    NYS actually bans any plate covering including the clear bubble shield and any plate frame that covers any part of the plate so like 99% of any plate frame made. It can’t cover the plate number, state name or the bottom word mark as many commercial vehicles say “commercial” or “trailer” where Empire State is on standard plates.

    They’re being changed again because emperor cuomo says NYS needs to change plates every ten years and the old white/ blue plates last issued in 2008 I believe are nownover ten years old and ezpass readers and plate scanners can’t can the old faded plates. Also the gold and blue plates had a manufacture felt that caused them to oxidized and peel. Us nyers see right through the bs and see it as just another governor money grab as it will cost $25 mandatory new plate fee and additional $20 to keep old plate number. 

     

     


  2. I voted for #5, it’s best looking, best font, and visual wise has geographic representation that includes anything outside of nyc. I’m from Long Island so I love the little light house added next to the nyc skyline too. Not a fan of the yellow they’re using too and how prominent it is, maybe switch the navy and yellow on the line and bottom wordmark it might look better. 


  3. Went to moes tonight for dinner, everything still looks the same except there was two marketing posters with the new logo and color. Didn’t seem to be any more of an attempt or hint at a rebranding elsewhere in the restaurant . Also for first time in forever, the food quality was subpar (tortillas were beyond stale) and ruined dinner but that’s another story.


  4. Being that I’m from Long Island/ nyc metro.... I grew up and used to each affiliate being at their respective channel (cbs2, ion3, nbc4, fox5, abc7, upn/my9, wlny 10/55, wb/cw/wpix11, News12 Long Island, pbs13, and wliw21.   We always just referred to them by the channel esp cbs, nbc, Fox, and abc have always been 2,4,5,7 as long as I been alive back on regular cable days and now digital cable. But now I’m seeing that fish network and direct tv also have local affiliates placed on their OTA spots of 2,4,5,7 through low 50s before switching to their standard 200+ for regular channels. When I travel I can’t get used to seeing networks on other channels or news stations with weird numbers like 22,38,64, etc cuz those have always been paid packaged cable channels not news. For example, I’m probably moving to Charlotte and the examples given feel weird to me cuz the big network affiliates are not in the usual 2,4,5,7,9,11,13 spots that were used to here in nyc area. Another weird one is mid jersey... they get both nyc and Philadelphia feeds so it’s like cbs2ny, cbs3phila and so on. Idk, I can see stations eventually dropping numbers and just going with affiliate and city / region name. Obvious exclusions would be stuff like cablevisons News12 networks or fios1, or ny1 news that if I had to guess, never switch from their channel slots.

  6. I did remember a while ago that New Era said they would switch to the Diamond Era fabric caps exclusively, and that their contract was up. From what I know now, 1) New Era has reupped, for how long, I don't know, and 2) the change to the DE caps will not happen; the normal polyester caps will still be used.

    good, I HATE the look of the DE cap fabric, if NE switched to that fulltime, that's would be the end of me buying hats. I like the current material, just wish it wouldn't shrink so easily if you sweat in it but the look of it is SO MUCH BETTER than DE material in my opinion


  7. not paying $38 for a hat either, but I never understood why the players don't where national / American jersey when they play the actual game, I mean they can where their team hat, but they were elected to the all star team, baseball is the only league that the players where their team jersey instead of a league jersey for the game...honestly it looks like a mess and a "me" mentality when they do that. id much prefer they were the nationa/ American jerseys for the game itself as well as the derby.


  8. Not that this is a surprise, but...

    Asked a #Mets person if they will do a patch honoring Ralph Kiner. Was told plans will be announced shortly. So there will be some tribute.

    you think the mets could put his name out on the wall like they did shea? kiner was the original broadcaster since day 1 of the mets and pretty much part of the team right up until the end of his life. other teams have done it fro broadcasters.


  9. Figured I'd bring this topic back up, seeing as how the Daytona 500 is 29 days away. Some things that have been confirmed for this season are:

    - Jimmie Johnson will run this all-white look as his primary color scheme:

    48lowes-white-diecast.jpg

    - It was confirmed that Brad Keselowski will run this all-white Miller Lite car to go along with Miller's recent release of their white cans:

    2millerlite-white-diecast.jpg

    Keselowski will also run the following schemes for Wurth and Alliance Truck Parts:

    - Finally, Brian Vickers' #55 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota has received a facelift since the original scheme was released in August.

    New Scheme:

    old:

    Much better IMO. The yellow looked way off compared to the new one.

    JJ and BK's all-white cars are my favorites. For the latest in paint schemes and such, head on over to Jayski's Paint scheme Gallery right HERE

    I LOVE chrome and painted wheels!!!


  10. That new Giants alt is just bad. The mismatched script from the 80's, the headspoon piping, and the craptastic SF patch not to mention the front number which hasn't been seen on a Giants jersey since 1982. Their cream homes and grey roads without the piping were among the top sets in baseball. Why do they keep feeling the need to truck out these awful alternates. If they wanted to keep an orange alternate the old one was just fine.

    $$$$$$$$$$

    in my opinion the jersey looks good as a fan jersey, idk about on the field for the giants.


  11. I actually went to the game. Took some photos: http://t.co/x0VjZ2kFo3

    For the most part, the view was great even though I was all the way up in the top deck. Yeah, the numbers were hard to see (obviously) but the contrast in color uniforms was really good and it was still easy to see the puck even though I was far away. Aesthetically, it wasn't bad at all. But that's probably because I didn't have the luxury or watching it at home in HD.

    And they were selling these. Had them in Dodgers and Angels

    so stupid...all about money any way they can get it.


  12. as a mets fan, now that they have the blue alt full time, they should drop the identical blue BP jersey and make an orange version of the blue alt for BP. id like to see the road blue alt dropped and an orange alt added, but I know the chances are slim to none to happening so at least switch the BP to orange. .. I can wish right?


  13. Icethetics confirms that the Penguins plan to have a retro alternate jersey based on the ones worn for the back-to-back cups in the 90's . They also said said the Islanders plan to make their Stadium Series logo their primary logo (probably for the move to Brooklyn) and that Addidas wants to replace Reebok once their contract expire

    to the islanders thing, as an islanders fan.. NO. that logo is ass on its as a primary. as a third its good but if they replace what they got now, then what makes them the islanders? I can see this team dropping long island from its entire identity, logo , colors, and even jerseys within 5 years. and if Brooklyn fails to draw.. I can see isles gone within 10 years unless the Brooklyn guys move the team back to long island since they got the rights to redevelop the coliseum.

    as far as addidas taking over for reebok, how much more can these corporate conglomerates mess up something that didn't need fixing. CCM had the design right, then reebok came in and messed it up. next it will be addidas and then eventually Nike will come in and just ruin this sport aesthetically as they done with the Olympic sweaters


  14. My Devils are the last ones and I agree I wouldn't expect the Devils to make any big on unveil; not the Devils style. What apparently is going around is that it will be basically the red and green Saint Patty's Day unis with the chrome Devils logo. Nice to see the Rags will be dressed in a sub par uni versus us. Love that the Devils will be the home team in Yankee Stadium. I know its because the Rags can't be the home team outside of the Garden but its extra sweet because Lou is part of owner of the Yanks and follows their hard line on tradition, success, and facial hair even though their methods of building teams couldn't be any different. He even has a ring from the 2009 WS. No small coincidence that the Yanks and Devils success have almost paralleled one another over the last 20 plus years and have been models for success.

    im pretty sure the devils and islanders are home teams because the rangers didn't want to give up valuable home games at the new garden vs their rivals...islanders only had one true home game at the coliseum vs the rangers, what a joke.


  15. time for my periodic update on my islanders:

    they still suck, except they suck at a new record level...my god, this team is historically bad. EVERY year they have their annual Oct/Nov/Dec collapse that ends the season by xmas, this year the season was over before thanksgiving. only on the islanders do the coach and GM keep their jobs after losing 19 of 22 games..

    stay tune for the next game for either: 1)embarrassing blow out loss, 2) a 1-0 shutout loss, 3) winning entire game and blow it in 3rd period with seconds left and lose, 4) winning entire game to blow it late and lose in shootout......all options continue our disaster course and we'll continue to see crapuano and shart snow kill the team, even though wang is the blood sucker of life involving anything with this hockey team.
