  1. With respect to the topic overall, I don't see the point of a first name or first initial on a jersey. The number should be enough to differentiate.
  2. I can't find a picture of him wearing it where you can see the back of the jersey but Mike Patterson on the Eagles is the first one that comes to mind for me.
  3. Yeah, I've had that same issue somewhat frequently lately too.
  4. Kinda gives me 2016 and 2020 Pro Bowl jersey vibes.
  5. Tucked into stirrups if he wants to be taken seriously!
  6. Not only that, the Eagles haven't worn mono-green since 2002. I don't see them pulling that out again any time soon just out of the blue.
  7. He shaved it. Here he is ~10 years later.
  8. Fair point. He did say "any sport" though, and that was the first that popped into my head.
  9. They sell retail versions with ads at official team stores at the arenas.
  10. I've gotta hand it to the Jazz for 1) Sticking with the initial redrock jersey for longer than the City program is designed for and 2) maintaining the general theme with this new jersey. My biggest issue with the City jersey program is that majority of the jerseys aren't around long enough to make a lasting impression. If you're going to go with an "out there" design that's a departure from your team's usual identity, at least stick with it so it gets some staying power. The Heat's Vice uniforms are another example of this... although the colours have been swapped from year to year, the theme has carried on and become part of their visual identity. A comparison I can think of off the top of my head to illustrate my point is the Edmonton Oilers Todd McFarlane 3rd jerseys. They were far from what an Oilers jersey would typically look like but they were around for long enough that they became part of the brand (for better or worse). Had they only been worn for one season and then followed by some "City of Champions" themed jerseys, then a West Edmonton Mall themed jersey the year after that, I don't think they would have had the same impact. TL/DR: One season isn't long enough to establish a wacky design/colourway as part of a team's brand.
  11. Yeah these ads are getting pretty intrusive. The top and bottom banners are bad enough but now I’ve got a Toyota Tacoma ad that pops up about every 5 seconds and expands to take up the entire perimeter of the page... Doesn’t matter where I am in the forum. I’m using Chrome for iPhone if that helps at all.
