    Agreed. I'm not a fan of them using the peach color again tbh. I'm guessing the reason they didn't use gold though is because they'd look too similar to the current training shirts. 

     

    Honestly, if Atlanta is going to deviate from their main color scheme on a kit, I would want it to be the colors of the Atlanta flag. 

    Amazon.com : Fyon Georgia Banner City of Atlanta Flag 3x5ft : Garden &  Outdoor

    Nothing personal, but can all sports franchises and sports fans just stop with this 'use the colors of the city/state flag' thing that has boiled over out of control the past few years? That Atlanta flag is practically the same design and colors as about 2/3 of the state flags and the flag has no inherent visual originality that reads as 'Atlanta', and I doubt that flag is as ubiquitous, beloved or original as the Chicago, DC, Colorado, and New Mexico flags.


    Of course, there's also the entire mess with Texas' love affair with its flag...

  2. Why doesn't Utah just make green/gold/purple and purple/light blue versions of the red rocks jerseys and make that their entire set? They could own the gradient design, cover all their eras and make their fans happy while being relatively unique as long as Denver doesn't use their Atari breakout skylines too much.

  3. I kinda expected the Yanks to try the reverse pinstripes look, ala the unused version from the 70s, but after the White Sox city uniforms, I'm preparing myself for something really terrible. 

     

    I wonder how tasteless  Nike can go with the Mets playing the Yankees on the 20th anniversary of the Twin Towers. Guess we'll find out!

  4. Says a lot about the wreck the Rays' visual identity is when over the past couple of pages navy blue, indigo, forest green, light blue,  kelly green, yellow, royal blue,  gold, neon green, indigo-blueish-purple, powder blue, seafoam green and even gradients have all been suggested solutions to their lack of identity.

    It's quite an accomplishment in 23 short years!

  5. With the final four established by regular season points, here's a look at the possible brackets:

     

    If Montreal wins, the final brackets are set:
    #1 seed - winner  - COL (82 pts)  VEG (82 pts)
    #2 seed - winner - CAR (80) TB (75)
    #3 seed - winner - BOS (73) NYI (71)
    #4 seed - winner - WIN (63) or MON (59)

    Things are a little less clear if Toronto wins (necessary series results in parenthesis):

    #1 seed - winner - COL (82)  VEG (82)
    #2 seed CAR (80 - CAR W), TOR (77 TOR W, TB W), TB (75 TB W, WIN W)
    #3 seed TOR (77 - TOR W, CAR W), TB (75 TB W, TOR W), BOS /NYI Winner (CAR W WIN W)
    #4 seed BOS/NYI Winner (TOR W) or WIN

  6. I have no idea about on air changes, but just checking in on ESPN's website and seeing so much NHL coverage over the past few weeks shows just how much exposure the league lost by jumping to the Lance Armstrong and Car Auction channels. Its also nice to see the NHL listed on the header as well, it was amazing how successfully ESPN buried the NHL over the past few years.

    Hell, they've even managed to promote fans rooting for as many teams as possible with fantasy football because the more players from various teams a fan supports, the more likely they are to buy merch from multiple teams.

    I think fantasy players buying merchandise is a stretch. The NFL benefitting off fantasy with more eyeballs watching bad or insignificant games or higher season long TV sales is probably more realistic profit areas than a guy in Tacoma buying a Panthers jersey because Robby Anderson had a good fantasy day back in week 2.

  8. I remember the early 90s when it was reported beer sales were so high at Toronto's NLL games they were more profitable than Maple Leaf games. Toronto, Buffalo, Philadelphia and Rochester had solid attendance and the league at least tried plugging teams into logical spots, no matter how poorly run or marketed they were.

    Now Toronto is in Hamilton, and the original Philadelphia Wings are in Albany, the original Knighthawks are in Halifax and the league is adding teams with 'Panther City' as a name.

    I guess at least they outlasted ArenaFootball!

  9. As somebody who doesn't totally hate the new logo, I think you really did a great job on that head! I'm not a fan of the legs/puddles/cardboard cheese plate in the original.
