  1. Serious question. What happens if a team takes the field in their regular uniforms? Surely MLB won't make them forfeit, right?

     

    Teams got in trouble for wearing their regular caps yesterday and MLB is forcing them to wear the white and black ones today. But what happens if they don't? A fine?

    Arizona State just released a new alternate:

    The yellow between the maroon and white stripes is a terrible design choice. Don't ever do that.

     

    The straight word mark across the front of the sweater is bad. Either arch the letters, run them diagonally, or use a logo instead.

     

    Boring and poorly designed.


  3. I have no idea why, and I know I really shouldn't, but I kind of like it when some teams have home and road sweaters that don't match each other. My local college hockey team used to wear home sweaters with the primary logo and road sweaters with lettering spelling out the school name and it just always made sense to me. I realize the college hockey aesthetic is different from that of the NHL, but I have a soft spot for it.

     

    That being said, very few teams could pull that off and I don't know that this attempt by Carolina necessarily accomplishes that (mostly because of the use of CANES), but I don't hate it, as I know I probably should.


  4. As I see it the Reds have five options.

     

    1. Solid white jersey a la 1969

    2. Single sleeve stripe - essentially a toned down version of the current jersey

    3. Double sleeve stripe (Big Red Machine)

    4. Pinstripes (1967)

    5. Pinstriped vest (1960's/1990's)

    Choose one of these routes, add a corresponding road jersey and a red alternate jersey and you're set. One of the unused options above could be used as a Sunday alternate. Boom. Done.

    According to local media, they said the pirates are doing something with the 79 series team and said they’d wear black jerseys Saturday. They traditionally wear the yellow on Sunday. Hope they break out yellow hats-pants and mix it up on Sundays, but that won’t happen. Wonder why they didn’t make it a weekend and wear the 79 pinstripes Friday? Bet the Phillies packed powder blue and if they didn’t, it’ll be a waste.

    Any reason for the Wild going with black?

    We heard, several pages back, about a potential third jersey that incorporated black (believe it has since been shelved). Maybe the user had some good info. I don't think black and green go poorly together; it's just that when you have hunter green, red, wheat to play with, do you NEED black? Oh well.

    Regardless of a potential black third jersey, Minnesota has used black as their primary retail color for years. All "on-ice" products (jackets, caps, etc.) are usually black. Oddly enough black is listed as the team's primary retail color, with green as a secondary color.

     

    That being said, a black third jersey is still possible, although apparently unlikely. The latest report was that it may be scrapped after not passing the TV test.


  7. A friend from Vegas said he believes the Knights third jersey to be red. That's his own speculation based on conversations with team store employees and merchandise trends for VGK, so nothing concrete, but certainly interesting.

    I still think it's too early:

     

     

    Des Moines and Omaha don't work if they keep the current system in place and start the season in February. It's the first of March and still supposed to snow again, I guarantee nobody would be attending football games in this weather.

     

    Also, Omaha's only true football stadium belongs to a high school. I assume any new team would play at the baseball stadium again, but after the Nighthawks and Mammoths failed I don't see much support for future teams.

    It looks better with the Full Top red, while the brim is Navy. Used 1974-1986/2009. A Gold Outlined one is used with the Red Alternate.

    Yeah, the red cap looks better. They've worn in with the white uniforms a few times.

  10. We, in this community, tend to forget that generally speaking the common person prefers to purchase neutral colored clothing and accessories. Having worked in sports retail I can tell you most people tend to purchase caps based on the base color, and tend to stick with something safe, such as black. It was very difficult to sell the Marlins orange caps, while the black caps were fairly popular. Of course, these days the throwback colors sell best, but that's considered a special circumstance because those caps aren't available full time.

     

    In short: it's easier/safer to sell standard color caps. Such as black.

     

    That being said, the Marlins absolutely need to switch to blue caps. Now.
