  1. SB XXV was the first in a while, but not the first ever. Gotta go back a decade-and-a-half earlier....
  2. Edit: Pizza...didn't see your post at the top of this page when I posted this.... The NFL brought back the helmeted end zones for super bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX (the second and third Patriots wins.) In Jacksonville, the NFL used midnight green end zones with the same color helmet for the Eagles.
  3. The "road" team has been to the right the past two years. In the case of the Packers/Steelers, it was supposedly because of the layout of Jerry World and where the "home" team lockers were. Not sure why they didn't switch back in Indy for the Giants/Pats last year.
  4. I don't think the Jaguars will move to LA, because I don't truly believe the NFL wants a team in LA. The NFL just wants all current NFL cities to believe the NFL wants a team in LA. Look at the sweetheart stadium deal the Vikings just got to stay in Minnesota. Think that would have happened without a credible threat the team would be leaving? There are stadium and/or ownership issues looming with the Chargers, Raiders, Rams and Bills. The NFL knows it can secure a much more favorable deal to have the team stay with its current fan base by playing the Los Angeles card. That's also why the league continues to flirt with two seperate developers. If a team like San Diego or Oakland is forced to relocate up or down the coast, the NFL still has another stadium ready to play against local and state leaders in St. Louis and Buffalo. Getting back to the topic at hand, however, I am sad to see the teal pushed aside in Jacksonville. I think their white jerseys would benefit from teal numbers outlined in black (especially when worn with the black pants, which haven't been broken out this year.) But I do like the look of the new black jerseys, so I'll be interested to see how they look on the field, and which pants (hopefully not the black) they pair the jersey up with.
  5. Has anyone seen a schedule of the Jags uniforms this year? Could be they wear white at home for 5 games, the teal "primaries" once and the black "alternates" twice. That's the only way they could get around the existing rule for primaries/alternate jerseys.
  6. Nice job on these...some of my favorite NHL redesigns I've seen on the boards. Really like the Kings primary home/road, and the Ohio Nationals set is fantastic. On the Rangers, I prefer the pre-tie-down white jerseys with some more spacing between the red and blue stripes on the sleeves and hem, but I appreciate adding New York back to the road set.
  7. And see, I don't hate this particular jersey at all. It's something about the color balance. Like I've said in other threads, not taking tradition into account when evaluating the aesthetic merits of a jersey and simply judging by design (i.e. if this wasn't for Texas), this one is OK by me. The fact that there are big bold chunks of contrasting colors (that still work well together) here make these OK as far as I'm concerned. When did the Texas Longhorns become the Philadelphia Flyers?
  8. Found this page on New Era's UK website. NFL products from New Era Cap Seems to have a bunch of designs from 21 of the 32 NFL teams.
  9. Hey guys, Sorry I've been ignoring this post. Haven't had enough time to keep tabs on the board and notice the new requests. My apologies to the few of you who have made requests lately. I'll try to catch up a bit down the road.
  10. I like the Thurman Thomas and Andre Reed throwback Giants jerseys, complete with the Bills 35th anniversary patch! Great work, guys!
  11. The Steelers end zone was on the west side of the field, looking at it from the TV angle.
  12. Worst matchup from an aesthetic point of view, especially on the fields. Since they put the home team on the right last year they might do that again unless the AFC is on the left now and the NFC on the right. Maybe they'll switch back and forth, like the jerseys. I seem to recall, although I cannot find a link, that the field and stadium configuration at Cowboys Stadium dictated the home team end zone being on the east end of the field. Can anyone else find that post? If that's true, it doesn't make any sense. Endzones are endzones. Lockerrooms are lockerrooms. You might be thinking of a different scenario. . Yes, the away team end zone is to the right, which also alternates conferences. This year, the AFC is on the right. I think for this time only, since the cowboys play there, the home team (packers) will be using their regular sideline up to from the press box which is the close to their locker room and the end zone will be on the right of the press box, next year It will be back to their regular spots for XLVI (if there will be one) and don't be suprised the configuration will be used for the NY/NJ Supe' in 2014 also. This was the post I remembered from last year.

  14. A few of these look very familiar...
