  1. Team Exec 1: "The fans are clamoring for kelly green" Team Exec 2: "No that's too easy, lets give them opposite ends of the green spectrum, then we'll say were moving forward while respecting the past"
  2. True, I actually just took a look at the rule book and if you go from one eligible position to another you don't have to change. So disregard my first post, I stand corrected. ARTICLE 2. PLAYERS NUMBERED BY POSITION. All players must wear numerals on their jerseys in accordance with Rule 5, Section 4, Article 3, Item 3. Such numerals must be by playing position, as follows: (a) quarterbacks, punters, and placekickers: 1–19; (b) running backs and defensive backs: 20–49; (c) centers: 50–79; (d) offensive guards and tackles: 60–79; (e) wide receivers: 10–19 and 80–89; (f) tight ends and H-backs: 40–49 and 80–89; (g) defensive linemen: 50–79 and 90–99; (h) linebackers: 40–59 and 90–99. If a player changes his position during his playing career in the NFL, and such change moves him from a position as an ineligible pass receiver to that of an eligible pass receiver, or from a position as an eligible pass receiver to that of an ineligible pass receiver, he must be issued an appropriate new jersey numeral. A change in jersey numeral is not required if the change is from an ineligible position to another ineligible position, or from an eligible position to another eligible position, provided that the player has participated at least one season at his position prior to the change. Any request to wear a numeral for a special position not specified above (e.g., H-back) must be made to the Commissioner. During the preseason period when playing rosters are larger, the League will allow duplication and other temporary deviations from the numbering scheme specified above, but the rule must be adhered to for all players during the regular season and postseason. Clubs must make numerals available to adhere to the rule, even if it requires returning to circulation a numeral that has been retired or withheld for other reasons.
  3. If they do go back to the Kachinas, I'd like to see them change that green to more of a turquoise. I know the green has historical precedence, but I feel the turquoise would fit in to the southwest/native theme and provide a little more contrast/pop with the red. The green and red are both on the darker/dull side, kinda all blends together IMO.
  4. You probably already know this but just as a sidenote, he was essentially "grandfathered" in when in Chicago since he started as a CB then transferred to WR, but once you go to a new team those positional number rules kick in. He no doubt would've like to have kept 23 at all those other stops. I would say in that situation, given his status/accomplishments, let him keep 23 as an exclusion to the rules, but obviously that's subjective and would open Pandora's box.
  5. I feel like they saw all the praise the throwback inspired Color Rush got, and misinterpreted that as "the fans like white on white" when in reality it was "the fans like stripes and an actual nice shade of gold"
  6. The gold bird with the art deco feel made the old Palermo logo jump into my head...
  7. Some of the Eagles players a couple years back (McCoy and Vick off the top of my head) had the shoulder stitching as well
  8. To the people comparing the pewter on the pants, you have to remember they changed the pewter itself, and the difference in material is just adding to it. On that note I much prefer the old color set overall, especially the old pewter. The current one looks like they wanted to combine the old pewter and black so they'd have one less color.
  9. PDW always seems to have really thin line weights, it makes it look like clip art or an illustration as someone mentioned. I mean the old one wasn't amazing, but this new one makes it look better.
  10. I think he was being sarcastic, referring to the simplicity of their game unis.
  11. Is that not Red Lobster's lobster in that graphic? I mean I know thats gonna be the first thing that pops up in a google search for lobster logo, but I figured someone would've recognized it before putting it on a shirt. Unless they're in on it too.
  12. I dont know if Brandon Moore mentioned it already but according to the new logo slick the Dolphins still have the tramp stamp on the pants.
  13. They were listed in the logo slick when Nike took over in 2012, so Madden just rolled with it. I don't believe the Bears have updated it since then, so they're technically probably still listed. Who knows whether we ever see them or not, or if they were just an oversight.
  14. @Conrad. would you happen to have a flat graphic showing all the numbers like you posted with the Titans? Interested to see the full set.
  15. Like the look of this except for the 4, why not a traditional closed 4? But this a nice modern take on a full block, kind of like the Jaguars new one (or at least what we've seen of it).
  16. So @BrandMooreArt a technical question, is the new stroke on the numbers the same overall size as the double stroke from before? It seemed like the old ones were very thin, so I always figured if they were combined together as a solid color they would look normal.
  17. I think he meant the name "wintergreen" wasn't coming from the Jaguars, not necessarily the color itself
  18. Its Florida State's old font or "Glades Bold" by Nike catalog standards
  19. Talking about 2 different fonts, the one Ashley Strauss used (Crayfish AS Bold) is different than the one Bosack created (which looks like Brothers). You can tell by the S's, Crayfish S's have some rounded corners whereas the Bosack one does not.
  20. In the logosheet its just referred to as "blue", but that doesn't mean they didn't try to call it that initially.
  21. Teal is probably going insane right now, waited so long for this.
  22. Was just coming to say this. Cant believe this conversation went this long without mentioning the Trop. Just a giant warehouse with the worst turf I've ever seen.
