  1. We're the real victims of this nike mess.
  2. Traditionally it hasn't been traditional. Initially with the orange and black alts they wore the standard cap while the orange brim cap was worn on Sundays or some :censored:. Or it was worn with the grey sf alt they previously had. More recently have they started wearing it with the colored alts.
  3. Heaney's been doing that all year rocking the stirrups. But yeah would have been nice to see the Sox play along a little more. Annoying is Eloy's stupid red accessories, jack assery to me.
  4. The baseball in the primary logo is playing tricks. Needs an outline that's not black. Also confused about the dates in the tertiary. Makes me miss the black white and silver SJ Giants of the early 00s. Worked in the cal league at that time.
  5. So basically the bp and derby jersey that were actually worn in SD except in the game. Here's an easy way for nike and mlb to cash in. Go back to having teams where their regular uniforms including allowing standard alternates. Not the bs Nike NBA thing they're doing but for example the a's in an AL city would wear their standard home, the yellow top and the green top similar to what they did in the 70s. Then you can show off all these purchasable options that are already part of the teams package.
  6. Screw the league for allowing nike to change the aesthetic of the ASG. If ya wanna show off alts. Let the teams where their colored alts like in the 70s. This is just a miss. Even if it was still in Atlanta this would be a fail.
  7. Ummm, there's this little company that has a theme park that pre pandemic hosts multi millions of people from around the world every year in ANA.
  8. What's sad is growing up in norcal I didn't even know who e-40 was until tell me when to go came out. For some reason growing up I was more attracted to East Coast hip hop. So So Def, Bad Boy etc... Never got into west coast and really still not a fan of it.
  9. Not sure where or when the f this boomer thing became a thing, but I'll gladly identify with that generation over my own.
  10. They did that last time tho too. Rice wore red socks for the white top reveal. Maybe a couple other players did too, but they ended up wearing all white. Problem anyway is the NFL is so lax on the socks that we'd end up seeing 43 different combos.
  11. I think the market for fully authentic jerseys is very small. It's way easier to sell an official look a like at $150 than it is to sell a real mccoy at $300+
  12. The fact the Bungles still don't have an indoor practice facility makes them a sham of a franchise. This is at best a slight upgrade. The side panels had to go. But no TV numbers sucks. Out of the pant options, the black looks best. Too much white on the road uniform. Color balance off. It's no Rams , Falcons, or Titans mess so in that respect its a great uniform.
  13. Prior to the Kings moving downtown, downtown sac was a ghost town. Failing businesses run down buildings etc. The minute groundbroke on G1C downtown began a big revitalization. Redevelopment of downtown brought in new businesses and new jobs. Had the Kings ended up in Anaheim, VA Beach, ughh seattle, downtown would never have bounced back. The G1C would never have been built, which in turn Sacramento would have lost out on so hundreds of other events that would have skipped over that market. So yes. Sports teams can be vital to certain markets.
  14. Are all yall nike lovers/ apologists happy now? Nike really is the worst company. They ruin everything. This is what I feared when they received the contract.
  15. Pretty sure the numbers are outlined in gold as well. Unless you meant they shouldn't be either.
  16. Not sure about the belt, but the shoe rules have kinda gone out the door unless you're bauer and using your own logo. Then you get a stern letter from the comish office.
  17. Nwa was wearing black. Even the possible lakers gear, which I couldn't find any pictures of them at that time wearing, was black based. Hip hop at that time during the boom of gangsta rap was black clothing based. I should rephrase my stance. Yes Gretzky was a huge reason why they became popular with hockey fans and certain demos. But going off the visual evidence we have the switch to black attracted nwa which then attracted that demo that would not have bought merch because of Gretzky. Reason being that demo isn't big on hockey regardless of how popular someone may be.
  18. The Twins really need to just go back to the metrodome unis. They really haven't looked right since they ditched them.
  19. Wrong. The Kings, while yes with nhl fans became popular because of the play and success on the ice, it was the switch to silver and black that sold and drove merch sales. Had they never switched to a pallet similar to the Raiders, NWA most likely never rocks their gear as lets face it, hockey isn't particularly popular with the hiphop demo. NWA wearing LA Kings gear was easily the biggest driving force in merch sales during that time period.
  20. This makes sense as the Mets have previously gone this route so it's in essence a throwback or at least a nod to those teams. Where I'd be worried is if the Mets came out in red and yellow uniforms for some random named reason. The stupid nba system will always be a worry when dealing with Nike. (Still Hate that they got the contract.)
  21. Coaches yes. I would agree with that statement. But players is another story. Especially where the league is now, I mean just look at how much time and effort a lot of players out in just for the fit they wear to the arena. I would be willing to bet that they care a lot more than you think about what they wear on the court.
  22. Sorta random observation. Watching the ncaa tourney and there is nike teams galore. Most if the teams have armhole trim and it goes all the way around. Why the hell can't nike make an NBA template that does the same.?
  23. Was doing a little impulse buying, especially with the Jethawks officially closing up shop and everything 50% off. Went to the Rivercats team shop and noticed the standard Home and Road caps were significantly on sale. Haven't seen any release or news but one would think a change could be happening.
  24. This was my biggest issue with the rebrand in 16. They eliminated black from the logo and relegated it to a terrible alternate. The court is a nice nod back to Arco circa late 90s early 00s, but the logo is all silver and purple. Just doesn't fit.
