  1. 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.
  2. I wouldn’t assume 2nd ads on jerseys and more ads on floors are an “either/or” proposition.
  3. Info on the Indians’ plans from Terry Pluto. https://www.cleveland.com/tribe/2020/11/fans-love-to-watch-in-indians-on-tv-whats-up-with-team-name-terry-talkin-tribe.html
  4. It’s not just you: https://www.tennesseetitans.com/news/titans-to-make-a-slight-modification-to-the-light-blue-jerseys-for-2019
  5. Now that the Browns’ primaries look like actual Browns uniforms again, I don’t have any use for the color rush, with or without stripes. Also, it remains bizarre to me that the Browns have leaned so heavily on stripes being the defining element of their visual identity, and their color rush set now has none. Maybe I’m just cynical, but it feels like the only reason you do that is for a merchandise cash grab—i.e. create a color rush jersey that is just different enough from the old one that fans will buy a new one.
  6. The numbers in the current Cavs font are horrendous, and making them navy on the wine uniforms has caused them to be almost illegible on TV. And they know it because they made the stroke around the numbers thicker after the first season. (It didn’t help much.)
  7. So, it appears it’s postseason patches for hats only (not jerseys) and no logos on the field. And if you look closely here, the Indians have mowed off the ads that were along the baselines, but the extra ads covering sections of seats remain: (FYI - They’ve had the top of the dugouts tarped off during games all season for reasons I don’t entirely understand.)
  8. Leaving the sidelines unpainted suggests to me that those areas will still be used for digital ads. The reason those ads aren’t painted on the floor like Walt Disney World is because they change depending on who’s the home team.
  9. The Browns’ “It’s gameday!” tweets have historically been an indicator of what the team is wearing, so this would suggest brown over white: Also: The Madden screenshots with “BROWNS” in the end zones and the 50 outlined by brown and orange were accurate:
  10. Looks like the league has gotten rid of team logos on the bubble courts and replaced them with more ads. Also: All ads are now full-color instead of black.
  11. Another issue is that LA’s stadium will have twice as many games with two teams playing there. That’s a lot of wear and tear on a field.
  12. I thought they were, too. That’s what I had heard from someone close to the team. Not sure if that person passed along bad info to me, or if the team made a last-minute decision to hold off a year, but I’m sorry for sharing something that turned out to be false. I could understand wanting to hold back on the release because who knows what will happen with the pandemic, but then again, other teams like Atlanta and Charlotte are rolling out whole new sets.
  13. To be fair, I have to give the Cavs some credit for steering into the stupidity of the league making every club wear a uniform with the logo of a former player who, for many franchises, was their biggest rival.
  14. It appears I got some bad info on the Cavs rolling out a new statement jersey. They’re calling this the official statement jersey for 2020-21, and the only change is the swoosh being replaced by the Jumpman, which everybody across the league is doing. Sigh.
  15. Adding a stroke around the numbers helps a lot. I would have added a thin purple double pinstripe to the collar and armhole trim. Not a fan of the new court at all. Besides going teal overload by changing the key color, not having the honeycomb inside the 3-point line reeks of change for change’s sake and a clear downgrade.
  16. Haven’t heard anything, but I would have to assume the court is changing again too, because this year’s had the 50th anniversary logo at center court and “Celebrating 50 seasons” along the sideline.
  17. I was told the Cavs are getting a new black statement jersey for 2020-21 and new white and wine uniforms for 2021-22. (New city edition for this upcoming season as well, of course, although I haven’t heard any details on the concept for that one.)
  18. If that is a new official logo, it’s awful. There is no angle at which you can position the LOB trophy so that the ball looks like it’s on the rim in that position. (Props to the league for giving the new Finals logo a little bit of life by adding the trophy, even if the execution is terrible.)
  19. I don’t think the NBA is going to suddenly give up that extra revenue it generates by adding the digital ads all over the floor once the playoffs start. I won’t be surprised to see those blank courts are here the rest of the way.
  20. Are we sure those mockups are what the uniforms are going to look like? That’s clearly a college uniform template, with the swoosh on the left chest instead of the sleeves. I have seen several media outlets sharing those pictures, but the team itself hasn’t. Their website only has some photoshopped old jerseys.
  21. Conference USA has had two conference tourney games running concurrently on courts separated by a curtain the past few years. I don’t think the NBA would do it, but it’s feasible. https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/college/ct-spt-ncaa-conference-usa-tournament-20180308-story.html
  22. That timeline would have been so much better if the entry for 2015 just said: “Yeah, we [redacted] up.”
