  1. Hey guys! I did a quick mock up last night and just wanted to share. This Cardinals concept is a coincidental mix of the original colors of crimson and cream from the franchise's earliest days, the popular Arizona flag implementation into uniform elements (especially as we see in concepts on here), and wanting to give them something different than just the white and red. It's hard to showcase on a flat template but the helmet is bronze, numbers have a sheen to them. I actually thought the patch on the Rams uniform was a cool addition to the collars so I put the flag inside. I'm in the work day but I will flush these out with an away set later! Thanks for letting me share!
  2. The new Rams reporter for The Athletic is contending that the bone jersey is not the official away uniform and apparently required special approval from the league? (why, wouldn't it just be an alternate? Wouldn't the special approval be making it a road jersey?) I wonder if there's a white uniform that never made it out of production because of COVID so they are getting approval to wear the bone, or that an away uniform was so bad they scrapped it? Who knows But the bone jersey is an utter catastrophe. I have no idea what's going on with anything in it. The sleeves are so confusing. It doesn't look good.
  3. Oh, I don't have a hard time believing that AT ALL
  4. "I also feel like the chrome facemask, while maybe not entirely original, fits really well with the Falcons' shiny chrome stadium and giant titanium bird. That said, it would look infinitely better with a silver pants option to balance it out more. " Spot on.
  5. I created a photo thread on Twitter that breaks down how many tired and failed Nike elements are in these uniforms, for those here who I know are more interested than my Twitter followers lol
  6. Good start, but there are some things you could tweak. For one, the frequency of the striping is different across the mediums. Even though the tiger striping theme is consistent, the actual volume of striping is not, so the uniform looks a bit disjointed -- almost as if someone took the Bengals 80s, 90s, and 2000s unioforms and mixed and matched them. I'd go back, pay attention to the application scale, just as you would with classic stripes. Also, as much as I would like the Bengals to drop the Reebok font they have, plain white block isn't really inspiring. Simple uniforms look great but gain their uniqueness from the simplest things and that includes the font choice. I'd go with something more block custom.
  7. WHY do people prefer Patriot Pat over Flying Elvis? Logos are supposed to be abstract, and the current Patriots logo as another poster said is perfect for a football helmet -- forward facing logos just flat out work. There isn't anything in the design that you can argue is fundamentally bad, it's just not some people's cut of tea. How is that miles worse than a logo that can't be embroidered, isn't facing and includes shades of brown? The absolute marriage people have with old, inferior logos blows my mind. There are a lot of BAD modern applications of logos out there but Flying Elvis is one of the best and now one of the most iconic.
  8. For reasons I can't explain: soccer jerseys can be worn any day of the week, any scenario All others, it's kind of odd unless it's gameday. But only for football. Baseball and basketball if you're going, or if it's a playoff game. These are the rules
  9. TV numbers aren't necessary with the quality of the monitors that folks in booths have now. I say scrap them and give more real estate for unique designs. In some cases, TV numbers can make a jersey look more complete. But in others, there's no need. The Chargers wanted to bring back the helmet numbers here so there's really no point in having TV numbers on top of that. Would be like when the Panthers had the Panther logo on the side of the helmet, jersey and pants.
  10. Perfection. These even look more classic than the original uniforms in the 60s because they are just so clean. Love how they didn't squeeze TV numbers on there. The pants are perfect. MAYBE you make the bolts powder blue with yellow trim on the white jersey and pants, but overall these are so easy on the eyes and don't have any loose ends.
  11. The way modern shoulder stripes look these days doesn't really bother me. Because the way jersey cuts are different, it does feel natural for them to stop at those certain points around the shoulder. Remember when LSU tried to make stripes with Nike that went further down, just to appease the crowd that wanted it? It looked awful. To me, it's like racing stripes on a car ... it runs over the spot seen, you don't run it under the bottom.
  12. I've seen some crazy takes on these boards and thinking that the all-white and black "color rush" uniforms are better than their regular roads is by far one of the craziest.
  13. Becuase one is executed very well with attention to detail, while the other looks like a mailed-in order from a high school
  14. I love how the other day we thought TV numbers were mandatory because Cleveland apparently wanted to go without them on their color rush jersey. Then we find out through the Patriots that TV numbers aren't mandatory.
