  1. I really don’t give a :censored:... but when did he say that? I know I said that because I knew. I remember him saying a lot of standard BS. He didn’t know :censored:.
  2. For example, the jets facility has all glass walls for their conference rooms but I’ve heard during uniform meetings they’ve hung curtains covering the glass, so even other jets employees wouldn’t be able to see what’s happening. Also, their logo and uniform are redacted from the draft and nfl 100 style guide. So where’s you would see for example all the Packers Eagles etc draft elements logos and caps , the jets is blank. So anything distributed around the league has Jets stuff blank. This is not common. For example, when the uniform schedule comes out it goes to everyone, which is why I’m always surprised im the only one on these boards that has it because it goes to a lot of people associated with the league. But in this case anything that would normally go to everyone and has all teams stuff in it (even new stuff) the jets have blanked out. In summery, jets are trusting no one.
  3. No, the jets are being beyond secretive. To the point of paranoia. Can’t say it isn’t working for them because there have obv been no real leaks, but let’s say I doubt anyone who “claims” to have seen them because soooooo few people have even had a glimpse and that includes people inside the org. And that goes quadruple for someone like Teal who claimed to see them months ago before any teases to very select few began.
  4. So you want the Texans to wear oilers logos and uniforms but not get a penny from any jersey sales. Tell me why in a million trillion years the Texans would do that? At the end of the day the Texans don’t want fans wearing oilers jerseys they want them wearing Texans jerseys. If there was a serious demand (idk if there is or isn’t) and they eventually relented and wanted to do throwback game you can be sure and :censored: they want the $ from it.
  5. You guys keep talking about NYC flag but here’s the point, they took the NYC flag and adapted it to a cap... first changed the colors to Giants colors. So right off the bat you lose any recognition of the famous orange and blue flag. Then, the only element from the flag that I can tell is the laurels around the seal. It goes around the base of the cap. I don’t care HOW familiar you are with the NYC flag.. if you see red white and blue cap with a ring of laurels there is no way you would associate that with “ohhh I get it they took inspiration from the NYC flag”. There is no defining element to make that connection. ESPECIALLY if you don’t see all the other Teams and caps in the series. That’s what happened to me and I guarantee you would all feel the same way.
  6. Yeah you're right the few caps I saw were based on their indv flags and I didn't get the reference until seeing all of them.
  7. OK - this is making a LITTLE more sense to me.. I only saw a few of the teams and assumed it was a template. The Laurels I saw were on the Giants and I guess it sort of resembles what's around the seal in the NYC flag. NO ONE is going to understand that reference.
  8. I just saw the draft caps 1) I think they have an Expos type of pinwheel design. Hard to tell from the 1 pic I saw. 2) there’s a strange pattern around the base of the cap. It’s almost like laurels like in the old Greek olympics or something. Looked like a swarm of bugs to me. 3) with the draft hats being released the jets logo may be leaked soonish.

  10. did you have a hand in it?
  11. Not sure if this should go here or the Super Bowl LIV logo thread. But here's some info on the branding for Super Bowl LIV from the style guide. 1) The color scheme will be aqua, gold and ..... HOT PINK!! (not joking) 2) Last year's geometric pattern in the various font styles is replaced with a soft gradient. So imagine a big LIV in aqua but with a soft vertical dark to light gradient. 3) I would expect the NFL 100 logo to replace the NFL shield in any and all places. There is a recolored version with silver numerals and 1 aqua stripe and 1 gold stripe replacing the regular version of blue numerals and 2 red stripes. But even though they do it here I don't expect team-specifics versions of the NFL 100 logo ala the MLB logo. 4) There are 2 fonts in play -- a thick, sans-serif font sort of like Impact. And then a very thin, sharp angled font like a Futura. All in all I think it works. All that aqua and gold is a little more jaguars-y than dolphins-y. But it looks good. And the hot pink is actually working for me,
  12. I can repost the date now. I posted it a few days ago but I took it down because I didn’t want to get in trouble. But Jets just confirmed 4/4
  13. It doesn’t take insider Information to make a generalized statement like that. I think everyone knows or can assume that the basic color scheme isn’t changing drastically and it will be a modernization. And also it’s a NY team so it will probably be closer to traditional than outright abstract and insane. Point is, he’s tried to pass off some info as if he knows something and I’m telling you there is ZERO chance he knows anything at all. And I normally wouldn’t say anything but this week I found out the length the Jets have gone to keep it under wraps and prevent leaks, and I saw how few people know anything. And teal is not one of those few.
  14. For what it’s worth, the information I have is that the new look is a refresh/modernization. There were some very edgy looks being tossed around early in the process, but supposedly where they have settled is more modern than the current look but much closer to conservative than some of the more drastic redesigns we’ve seen such as the Bucs. The colors aren’t drastically different and It should be very well received.
