  1. One of the things that stood out to me in the 2020 redesign was the wonky serif on the bottom of the 7. I assumed it was a “Nike being Nike” thing, but apparently there was a historical precedent with the 1946 uniforms. *cue NBC’s “The More You Know” jingle*
  2. I thought it was kinda odd for the design to put the focus on Milwaukee being 2x champions. Technically, it’s correct, of course, but the other title was 50 years ago.
  3. If there was a purple or black stroke around the logo to help it stand out from the orange jersey, I wouldn’t mind this at all. Not a great primary, but as an alternate, it would be fine.
  4. That’s the current number font, not the more traditional block font that was on the throwback that leaked. Messing with the brightness and color levels, that looks like an orange alternate. Hmm…
  5. I don’t mind the Jets’ current set, but the football in the helmet logo just looks so out of place. Everything else in their current look is sleek and angular, and the football with its rounded edges looks bland and dated.
  6. It’s amazing that after the disaster the Haslam family went through with their first Browns uniform redesign, they are literally stepping into the same mess with their soccer club a few years later. How do you make such an egregious error twice?
  7. The Bengals’ website lists “primary black,” “primary white” and “orange alternate.” I don’t know who started the “orange is the new primary” thing, but that’s not right.
  8. The timeline is a little hazy, but a new logo and uniforms are on the way for the Cavs: https://www.nssmag.com/en/sports/25645/daniel-arsham-cleveland-cavaliers-logo Separately, I’ve heard that the team is phasing out navy and going with wine/gold/black/white. This makes sense, as if you look closely, their primary court this season is limited to those colors (the drop shadow on the logo at center court is black instead of navy).
  9. Definitely a lot more “Cleveland Baseball” merchandise this year, as well. That’s gotta be a tough sell. If you like the “Indians” name, you probably don’t want this. If you’re ready for the name change, anything you buy could be obsolete in a year because the team has made zero commitment to keeping the colors, Block C, etc.
  10. I like those a lot. Hopefully they don’t do anything dumb with the pants. Only complaint is the lack of TV numbers, which seems to be an odd trend developing, following New England and the Chargers last year.
  11. Fox did the Thursday night games in 4K through its app and a couple providers, but that was about it. Hopefully the other networks start to get on board soon.
  12. It’s been longer than I thought, but yes, number outlines (and even more so, color accents along the 20s and 50) used to be a thing. http://gridiron-uniforms.com/fields/controller/controller.php?action=super-bowls Is it possible that we still get some extra pizzazz on this year’s field? Sure, but they’ve been rolling with this same drab template for 6 years now, so I wouldn’t bet on anything exciting.
  13. Between the off-centered end zone wordmarks and the lack of accents (outlines on the field numbers, 50-yard line, etc), this is the worst, most lifeless era of Super Bowl field designs ever. The fields now just look so unfinished. As for the end zones, you’d have thought multiple appearances by teams with arched wordmarks (Patriots, Eagles) would hammer home how bad the off-center wordmarks are, but apparently not.
  14. Looks like LED boards will be covering the first few rows instead of tarps like teams have used this year.
  15. Have to assume this is going to be a throwback of some sort.
  16. Several teams are doing baseline ads like the Bulls. The Cavs and Warriors are two other examples. Speaking of the Cavs, after doing mashups of different eras for the old “CavFanatic” uniforms and two city editions, it’s amusing that the whole league is apparently going to follow their lead for the 75th anniversary.
  17. The Patriots have been in enough of them that you would think they’d know “Super Bowl” is 2 words.
  18. The Tiger in the old roundel just witnessed a horrific crime, and you can’t convince me otherwise,
  19. Yeah, that first E is from The Who, the second L looks like the Beatles, and the A is definitely Nirvana.
  20. Browns were riding a heater with the orange pants. Prior to the Raiders game, they were 3-0 with those. Wouldn’t be surprised to see them in white over white for their next road game, as they went white over brown in Pittsburgh and got hammered.
  21. I wouldn’t assume 2nd ads on jerseys and more ads on floors are an “either/or” proposition.
