  1. They started doing that for Sunday home games since the beginning of last season.
  2. I completely agree with you. I was disappointed when the throwback jersey was being elevated to full time because it meant they'd never fix the random striping design. I'm glad they ditched the Vegas gold that ended up becoming beige, but the actual design of the jerseys is bad. It's always struck me as a holdover from the era when hockey teams seemed to have just randomly picked a bunch of stripes without rhyme or reason. They had a perfect opportunity to update the design. Start with the yellow sleeve caps and then come up with a consistent striping pattern.
  3. One little-known fact: The 'bear" logo that serves as the primary logo was not technically the original primary logo. When the team was first introduced in 1998, they used the roundel logo, which eventually became the secondary logo. Edit: now that I think about it, the original logo is actually different than the secondary logo that adorned the original jerseys. That logo (posted a few pages back) has a totally different color layout.
  4. "Shoulder patches for the sake of shoulder patches" is how we end up with redundancy like this: There is absolutely no reason to have the primary logo appear as the crest AND shoulder patches.
  5. The BiG throwbacks were part of the uniform rotation since 2006. While the navy BiG caps didn't come along until 2016, BiG merchandise was around for quite some time competing with the barley M identity. So maybe the team wasn't exploring the switch for that entire time, but fans certainly had the opportunity to take sides.
  6. The Lightning are in the perfect position to go all in on electric blue. It's a shame they've opted for a boring royal blue. I'd also be down for navy or black + electric yellow. They have the opportunity to do something unique and instead look exactly like one of the sports' most classic teams.
  7. I would love to see the Sens incorporate metallic gold into more uniform details, such as trim on the numbers. White numbers with gold trim on a black jersey with red stripes would be sharp. Using too much metallic gold, such as a thick inner gold stripe, might bring us too close to Vegas territory.
  8. Blue, yellow, and red is the worst color scheme ever. I'm serious. It makes sense for St Louis, but it looks awful.
  9. If the team were to change, what would the timeline look like? There's a lot that goes into a name change, let alone the time it takes to roll out new merchandise. I'm wondering if we'll see a situation similar to North Dakota in which the team operates without a mascot for a season or two.
  10. Now that you mention it, I wonder if that was the intent.
  11. I miss stadiums without giant video boards. They take away from the experience of being present at the event. So many people end up watching the game on the big screen rather than the action on the field below. To me this is all about the concept of being in the present moment, rather than a distaste of technology. I understand that people want the best view or whatever, but I like the idea of just being present in the moment. I miss the days when simply being at a game was the whole experience. Now we have a giant screen to distract us momentarily from the little screens in our hands, all while the action is taking place right in front of us. I know it's way too late to ever return to such a time, but I wish we could just appreciate experiencing a live game without giant video boards.
  12. White Dodgers cap was only for batting practice, worn in 1999.
  13. I did the exact same thing, only with the Wings. I would pay good money for a Wings hat in reality. Excellent work as always!
  14. Also on that coaching staff, Dave Parker:
  15. I didn't realize that helmet style co-existed with those uniforms.
  16. Modifying the color scheme would be a great step in modernizing the Kachina identity. Drop the purple, use the current shades of red and sand.
  17. The Flyers darkened the orange in 1999. This doesn't necessarily represent the fabric colors used by Reebok/Adidas, however, which certainly appear to be lighter than the fabric colors used by Nike in the 90's and early 2000's.
  18. "Baseball City" is a name right out of the current Brandiose-style naming formula.
  19. I will defend the use of italic numbers and names on the Chargers uniforms until the day I die! It's a simple design element that goes such a long way and perfects the uniform. They portray motion in an identity that is built around the concept. They're perhaps one of the only teams in all of sports who should have italic numbers. I can't believe they didn't have them before.
  20. Other than unnecessary alternates, this set is perfect and I'm surprised to see anyone dislike it. I realize everyone has their own opinion, but I'm genuinely surprised to see any pushback. The italic numbers are great. The entire identity is and should be built around the concept of motion. The numbers help establish that in an effective way. The simplicity of the bolts across the uniform is a huge improvement from the previous set. The colors are great. Bright and bold, befitting of Southern California. Top 5 uniforms in the NFL.
