    Yeah Dolphins color rush orange was more of a Tennessee Volunteer orange

     

    It literally was the same color at the time as Tennessee (Pantone 151), but now that they have reverted back to their old orange, I'm hoping it would look more like the Ronnie Brown pic

    Is the color of the pants ACTUALLY silver-green, or does it just look that way on the field?

     

    It's a separate specified color on their logo sheet, and they do refer to it simply as silver-green:

    The St. Petersburg Times becoming the Tampa Bay Times was a weird case of the tail wagging the dog, wasn't it? People know Tampa Bay from sports, but less so St. Pete.

     

    That was weird for me as someone who grew up in that area. It was always the St. Petersburg Times. Then I moved out of the area after high school and came back to visit at some point and saw it and was like "What the hell is the Tampa Bay Times?!?". Thought it was some knock off neighborhood paper.

    Not criticizing you TornatoGTS-just my opinions on the matter: 

     

    Most people probably have a reason for wearing those. Either a huge devotion to the team, a desire to fit into the NFL community, or a

    personal connection.

     

    sure let's talk about designs, and history, and rarities, but are we really gonna start criticizing and dictating what people wear to a football game? people might save up hundreds of dollars for a night out, and wear what they want to that game even though they aren't a fan of the team. 

     

    It's a community of NFL fans right? People express themselves at a night out on the town.  Maybe the Bears fan was dragged to Lambeau by their Packers girlfriend. We all just love football! It's not worth getting in a bind about, just clothes :)

     

    It's PERFECTLY okay to be confused and wonder "wonder why that person is wearing that??" but they probably have a reason and it's okay to criticize in your head, but I personally don't want this forum to become a breeding ground for "you can't wear that to the game!"

     

     

    And I agree with all that. Like I said I don't care what they wear. I may question it in my own way as being someone, like a lot of people here, who are really into the jerseys and teams and notice stuff like that, but at the end of the day I'm not criticizing them or holding it against them as a person. Like I said its just a passing thought/musing in the moment, nobody's going after them with pitchforks 😉

    I personally, have no problem with people wearing other team's apparel to games. They are clothes! People pay good money for clothes to support their team. Wearing them is not disrespectful, it doesn't hurt anyone, if anything-it just isolates the person wearing it, and if they don't care, why should you or anyone else? To play devil's advocate, why does it bother you all so much? Just clothes. 

     

    I wouldn't say it bothers me, like I don't get frustrated by it when I see it. Just more of a personal musing/observation, like "eh he's wearing that? Wouldn't have gone that route" then that's it I never see him again the rest of the game. You gotta remember where we're at, this place is going to go into the minutiae of jerseys whether its on the field or in the stands 😉.

    Interesting. This happens a fair amount, but I always assumed these people were very casual fans who thought they were just wearing sport specific attire. As in "Oh I'm going to a football game, I'll wear my football Jersey" without much consideration for the actual teams playing because they dont get the typical etiquette of sporting events. Kind of like if you were to drag a friend to a Star Trek convention and he brought a lightsaber.

     

    He probably wouldn't make it out alive with those people if that happened 🙃

     

    And I do get the casual fan aspect, but I feel like even some legitimate fans of the sport will wear non-playing team attire. Like their fanship is going to get revoked or that they have to defend their team against fans of teams that are actually playing.

    Just don’t wear a teams jersey to a game they’re not even playing in. I’m only half joking cause what you wear doesn’t bother me, but at the same time it’s just strange imo.

     

    I never understood that as well. Like I guess they're supporting the sport/league but it looks odd either way. For example, I know a guy who's a hardcore Bears fan, but if he goes to a local Bucs game (and they're playing someone other than the Bears) he would wear Bucs gear. He's not going to wear his Bears jersey to a game they're not playing in, so he does it right in my book. I just dont understand the people that don't follow that logic lol.

    The odd thing is that it WAS in the style guide until 2013 I believe.  IF it wasn't the uniforms themselves, then it was definitely the helmets.  

    @TruColor, any idea if this was true or not?

     

    I see it in a 2009 one I have for them, but it wasnt in the 2012, so maybe went away with the Nike switchover?

    It will be interesting to see if that translates into a different textile color on the jerseys too, or if the change will be limited to print/digital graphics.

     

    Well they had 2 years under Nike with the old unis (2012-2013), so would presumably be the same as those. How much of a change there was in the fabric color between those and the 2014-2019 set (if any) I'm not sure of. Whether you'd be able to tell from the naked eye anyways, who knows.

    I like this update, but think they would look a lot better with red socks.  The pewter is so dark (at least on this graphic) that it looks mono with the black socks.

     

    That's my issue with this new pewter. It worked in the 2014-2019 set since there was no black trim, so it essentially acted as a mix of the old pewter and black, kind of streamlining the color. But to use it in the old style uni set with black in the mix, it definitely becomes too dark and doesn't work as well as the old pewter.

    I'm curious as to how bright those yellow pants really are.  They call it "sunshine yellow", we'll see about that.

     

    From an official/print color standard, its the same yellow as Green Bay and Pittsburgh. So dont see being much different from theirs when it comes to the pants

    It's amazing how different the green looks now compared to when it was first introduced. I realize the lighting in these photos is obviously very different, but the green has no doubt evolved to a shade slightly closer to blue than originally.

     

    Its crazy too, because the listed/print color has never changed for their midnight green but the application of it in textile has varied greatly over the years. I think its essentially an issue of the team saying "here's our color" and the manufacturer saying "this is as close as we can get to that" which obviously deviates from supplier to supplier.

    Perfectly put. I hate the term "stolen" in a case like this, because I guarantee that no designer for this project had even seen this random high school's logo before. Parallel thinking is a common phenomenon in this field, and I guarantee that's what happened here.

     

    While I agree with you guys, this high school is in Indianapolis so you would think someone in the organization (not necessarily the designer) would've at least recognized it and said something. Though I'm almost surprised they didn't twist it into some Nike-speak kind of thing, "This logo is inspired by our local schools, the roots of our community #RootsGrowDeep"

    or the ones under 1956 in this (can’t seem to find a real photo):

    Black and white but nonetheless... (and of course our favorite Rams uniform in non painting form)

  14. I think someone might have mentioned it already but the pewter alt is essentially the same color blocking as the creamsicle era unis, just orange swapped for pewter. Same white numbers with red outline and R/W/R pant striping on the colored pants. In that sense I'm OK with this uni. Granted I'd still prefer if they had used the numbers from the home red jersey and just used the normal pewter pants.

    It's weirdly huge in terms of how much space is Jacksonville city limits, compared with most American cities.

     

    Jax has twice the population of Miami, but also like 300 times the land area; that stat "feels" wrong if you've been to either/both because Miami feels so much more built up, but the density of what you think of as "Miami" is technically spread across Miami and Miami Beach and Hialeah as independent political entities.

     

    Exactly, that's why it always bugged me when people mention that Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida. They essentially annexed the whole county as Jacksonville city limits, so if you stripped it down to its core it would probably be 4th/5th in the state

    How does brownie the elf tell you that exactly. I’m not doubting it and actually believe they will stay brown because it would mean a lot of signage having to change. But a draft cap with no helmet would not show me that at all.

     

    The one he linked does have the helmet in it though....
