  1. They’re not bad, though I prefer Brown over White with Orange or Brown socks for the traditional home set. I wouldn’t mind White over Orange on the road as the primary set as long as Cleveland’s all-white set gets some healthy usage. It might be an unpopular opinion, but I’d keep all 3 colors for jerseys and pants options for the Browns. While the white and orange pants would (and should) get the vast majority of the usage, striped brown pants would look good with the orange jersey and occasionally white. Also, I don’t mind the 2000s orange alternates coming back as-is, drop shadows and all; I wished that the NFL allowed for alternates to have some differences from the primary set. Also, a couple redeeming elements that Cleveland’s set currently has that I wouldn’t mind keeping around (if the Browns tried to salvage the current set and make it a more Vikings-esque update) is to keep the up-shadows by flipping orange with the number/text color (white numbers, orange upshadow on brown and brown numbers, orange upshadow on white) and the shoulder stripes (just cut it back to maybe come to a point just after the shoulder cap). All that said, however? I’d take the previous set as-is any day of the week. I don’t feel the need to add any other colors to the Browns’ color scheme, but a couple colors that could be pulled off are cream/off-white (to give that “old-time football” feel that only the Browns can pull off, and silver/light gray (for similar reasons). If the Color Rush program focused more on showcasing historical/alternate colors instead of shoehorning every team into a monochrome look, I like the idea of taking Cleveland’s classic Brown over White and replace the white with said silver-light gray (Brown jersey/Light Gray pants with light gray numbers and stripes on the jersey and Brown/Light Gray/Brown Brashier stripes on Orange helmet) for a Color Rush look that echoes the obscure use of silver pants circa 1950.
  2. The Tucson Roadrunners unveiled a faux back of sorts, going with a black alternate that’s based on the Coyotes’ initial set: I really like the pairing of the Sedona Red and Purple (as well as the Roadrunners’ regular colors of Sedona Red, Black, and Copper), though the color balance needs some work.
  3. Moving the Stallions to Rio Tinto is not a bad idea; in fact, it’s a pretty good idea. The stadium is more central to the Wasatch Front, probably less restrictions, and it’s a stone’s throw from Interstate 15. Of course, the big question is if Real Salt Lake would see if letting the Stallions play in their stadium would be worth the investment, or if at least 5 home games there would affect the playing surface too much.
  4. Call me a homer, but it’s going to be a shame to see Utah’s City and Earned Edition jerseys go (unless the City somehow becomes the Statement jerseys and the Earned becomes the City). Those two are probably my personal favorites in the Jazz’s current sets (off-brandedness of the City Editions notwithstanding).
  5. Yep. Or, in the case of Utah, I also blame the 1998-99 NBA Lockout and the subsequent 50-game 1999 season that that followed that buried the Jazz’s next best chance at a title. I have a feeling the NBA finds itself in this situation after the next CBA.
  6. Agreed with everything but the contract to 8 teams part. Every now and again a small(er)-market team can stay competitive—see the Spurs from 2000 up to a couple years ago. That said, this ring-chasing-in-your-prime business needs to stop. As a Jazz fan, I get Karl Malone pulling a Ray Borque and going to the Lakers in his last year, as John Stockton had retired and Malone wasn’t winning a title in Utah by that point. But doing it in your prime just marginalizes teams that, due to their location/market size/overall general popularity, cannot attract big stars. The next CBA needs to put an end to the super team or else it’s going to be ugly. Of course, the next CBA negotiations (When are they set to happen again?) are going to be ugly as well.

  8. While the design is better than the design Black/Neon Green, it still looks rather devoid of life. I believe Adidas did something like this with some MLS teams a few years ago, using colorless (read: Black/Dark Gray) uniforms made out of recycled plastic as well. Does Adidas not have the ability to dye said material?
