  1. Anyone having issues with embedded tweets not showing up? I’m on chrome for iPhone and there’s just been a big blank space wherever a tweet should be for the past few days.
  2. These Rams jerseys are much better than the bone ones but calling them a "modern throwback" is dumb.
  3. Yellow pants and helmet... that's enough of a reason to not have a yellow jersey for me.
  4. Yeesh, is that what the stripes actually look like on Panthers replicas?
  5. I've been on the hunt to track down the gameday pins for every NFL game I've been to. I managed to recently find two that had been eluding me which now leaves me with two left to find. The last two are: Bills @ Chiefs (Sep. 11, 2011) and Eagles @ Chiefs (Sep. 17, 2017). Problem is I've never seen a picture of a pin from either game so I'm not sure if they even exist. I contacted the Arrowhead Stadium shop and they unfortunately weren't able to confirm if pins were made for either game, or even for those entire seasons for that matter. The only thing that gives me hope is that I've seen a picture of a pin from the Packers @ Chiefs game on Dec. 18, 2011 so I assume they would have made pins for each game that season. I've had ebay saved searches for a LONG time for these and nothing has ever come up. It feels like I've scoured every corner of the internet too but have had no success. Anyone know anywhere other than ebay where I might want to look? Or are there any Chiefs fans or KC residents that can even let me know if pins were made for those games? I'm also on the hunt for this Brian Dawkins Bleacher Creature to round out my Eagles collection. It has proven more difficult than I would have expected!
  6. Definitely not commonplace. I recall that Washington had similar treatment as well:
  7. Funny you mention this... I have been on a similar quest to find this but my memory is much foggier about it than yours so I've had absolutely zero leads. I didn't remember any team names or locations but it's engrained in my mind that one of the logos featured pink which I thought was such a radical idea at that time. Other than that, I didn't really have anything to help with my searching so I'll definitely be following this thread. Fingers crossed somebody has some more info!
  8. Won’t be long now...
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Yeah, I've had that same issue somewhat frequently lately too.
  12. Kinda gives me 2016 and 2020 Pro Bowl jersey vibes.
  13. Tucked into stirrups if he wants to be taken seriously!
  14. 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.
  15. He shaved it. Here he is ~10 years later.
  16. Fair point. He did say "any sport" though, and that was the first that popped into my head.
  17. They sell retail versions with ads at official team stores at the arenas.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Right, thanks for the reminder. Admittedly, a little panic set in when I saw that Stars monstrosity.
  21. Yeesh! Now I'm really hoping that the Reverse Retro program doesn't just devolve into colour rush and that other teams will pair proper equipment with their jerseys.
