  1. 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.

  4. 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.


  5. The Twins were planning to introduce hats featuring the logo from last year's Players Weekend caps, TC inside the outline of Minnesota. Evidently they chose not to follow through with those plans. The logo was supposed to appear on the BP/ST caps as well as the St Paddy's Day caps.


  6. In 2011 the Twins designated the cream throwbacks as the primary home option to honor Harmon Killebrew. In August the team made the M caps the primary option because of a hot streak while wearing them, creating this odd mismatch of a look:

    Took me until I was, let's say, 25 to see the eye in the Bills' logo. I thought it was just another part of the horn. 

    I just now noticed the eye. I always figured there was supposed to be an eye in that shape but never really focused on it until this post.


  8. As a kid I learned about sports teams via trading cards and collectible helmets that my dad gave me. I'd collect trading cards and organize them by team. Every now and then I'd ask my dad about a certain team and he'd tell me they no longer existed, shattering my understanding of reality. I remember getting really excited about the California Seals and then learning they were long gone. I constantly drew logos of teams from each league, which were no doubt inaccurate due to my misunderstanding of relocation and such.

     

    My dad had this NFL standings board with the little magnetic helmets. I used that to learn the NFL teams. The orange helmets faded to a very light shade, almost pink. So I grew up thinking the Browns and Bengals wore light pink helmets. I couldn't tell the two teams apart until I finally saw the Bengals on TV and fell in love with their tiger striped uniforms.

     

    I remember asking why the Colts logo was a U, thinking the Oilers logo was a power line, and I thought it was funny Pittsburgh's team was named after thieves (Stealers).
