  1. In their press release they mentioned “several jersey modifications” or something to that effect, which I assumed meant swapping number colors. But there hasn’t been any official look at those changes yet.
  2. I'm sure I'll get used to it in time, but as of right now I hate it.
  3. As @sportsfan7 mentioned above, there are a few other recognized major leagues who are not apart of MLB and whose stats are not used to determine MLB records so this won't change anything in that regard. I imagine this was mainly done so that, as @GDAWG said, they can finally induct some Negro League players into the baseball hall of fame that were previously excluded because they did not have 10 years of "major league" service time.
  4. Katie dressed for Colorado but never actually played.
  5. I could be mistaken, but I believe Ball sold off its canning jar manufacturing business (as well as licensed out the name) awhile ago. So while the jars still say Ball, they’re made by a completely separate company.
  6. Ball hasn’t manufactured canning jars in quite some time. Most of their business is in aerospace manufacturing now, as well as trying to replace plastic cups with recyclable aluminum cups. They’re also one of Colorado’s largest employers. Ball Arena sounds like a weird name at first, but there’s honestly no better ‘Colorado’ company to sell the rights to.
  7. Not the Colorado team I thought would make the conference finals, but I’ll take it!
  8. It's a bit of Stockholm syndrome for sure, but I feel the same way. Their current look isn't spectacular but it's better than any other idea I have seen presented for the team and it's stuck this long. I was fairly certain they were going to switch to the alternate look when Adidas took over and am so glad they didn't. The alternate faux-Rockies look is just so boring and forgettable. EDIT: And as someone born and raised in Colorado, I am so sick of seeing the damn flag on everything. I wouldn't be surprised if the NHL had a rule about switching brezzers for a non-event one off. I can't think of an example where a team wore different breezers with their primary look for a random game in the middle of a season.
  9. They just got a new owner almost a year ago. They also replaced their CFO a couple months ago. This embarrassing error is probably due to high turnover within their finance department because of the new CFO and a complete lack of organization during the switchover of employees.
  10. That was a heart-breaking exit for the Avalanche. The Avs were such a fun time to watch all year, and this series with Dallas was fantastic. Even with the injuries and the third string goalie, I thought they were going to pull off the comeback. I'll now be rooting for the Canucks to get a Canadian team the cup again. But, Vegas/Dallas would be an incredibly physical series and a lot of fun to watch.
  11. I have no issue with the black numbers on the road, and I actually prefer the black breezers and helmets to any other idea I've seen mocked up. What bothers me the most about the new uniforms is that the back numbers and captain patches are outlined in silver while the sleeve numbers are outlined in slate/burgundy. If they do nothing else, they really need to switch the sleeve number outlines to silver.
  12. The saving graces of the powder blue look was the shiny fabric and the absence of navy. Once they switched to the matte fabric in @DG_ThenNowForever's middle pic, that was the beginning of the end. The yellow skyline alts were good, but they quickly committed to navy after those were released and we ended up with this set.
  13. Those Cooper masks were my favorite. As a kid who did not play organized hockey and couldn't ice skate without falling, I always told myself I would rock one of these when I made it to the NHL.
  14. We still haven't seen the full stadium series uniform including pants/helmets/gloves officially. The leak had blue pants, and a blue helmet would make sense with that. But in all the promo photos everyone is wearing black pants and accessories (including gloves). So I wouldn't be surprised if they trot these out with their standard black pants/helmets/gloves. They look a lot better in the promo shots than they did in the leak, but I still think they look ridiculous. I'm definitely going to buy one, though.
  15. Seeing how they utilize a base color that literally no one else uses, I'd say they are very unique.
  16. Because those people usually have no actual knowledge of design principles and no basis for that accusation. It's like me criticizing NASA because they took the same route to the moon again. How lazy and boring of them.
  17. I stand by what I said. It’s not a terrible identity, but it gets way too much praise. The Stars look their best right now. The only thing I’d change is to put a Texas shoulder patch in place of the roundel logo, and then give me a black alternate with g/b/w/b/g striping like their original Dallas set.
  18. The Dallas Stars tried to forget about Minnesota before they even left Minnesota. Why would they throwback to those years? Plus the North Stars identity has to be the most overrated identity in hockey. There’s no need for anyone to do a North Stars throwback.
  19. I see my Colorado/Mountain design that I did like 10 years ago all over the place. Etsy, a shirt in K-Mart a couple years ago, and there’s even a dispensary in downtown Denver that has a sticker of it on their window. I realize it’s a super common design to do for anything Colorado related, and I have no issue with people doing their own version. What irks me is when people just straight lift mine and use it for their Etsy shop. Especially because they always steal the first draft version and not the updated one. At least use the better looking one.
