  1. Is that stripe down the side of the Sixers uniform gold to simulate the Liberty Bell crack or snakeskin to go with that segmented snake “Phila Unite” secondary logo?
  2. I hate that charcoal that the Nets have used. It’s so close to black that it just looks like the equipment manager used cheap laundry detergent and faded their uniforms.
  3. I like this so much more than the current road jersey, particularly the script.
  4. Kinda weird that they would ditch copperplate pretty much everywhere, but still keep that W logo (now with unnecessary beveling at no extra charge!)
  5. I’m shocked that Nike is continuing with the mesh shirt tail and side inserts. I thought for sure they would create a unique template.
  6. I’ve thought about this, and the only rationale I can come up with is that they want the jersey trim to match the pants trim and they weren’t going to create an alternate set of pants. I get it, but I also think some red trim would help a lot. Also: An ultra-traditional city name block font just doesn’t work for a colorful alternate. Say what you want about the Indians’ disappointing defeats in the navy jersey with the script red ‘Indians’, but that’s been their defining look for a generation that has included 3 pennants, 10 division titles and a wild card.
  7. @BrandMooreArt Wait, Jimmy Johnson was responsible for navy being added to the Dolphins’ color scheme? Now that I think about it, the timing makes sense, but I never made that connection.
  8. Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, but does anyone know of a site that sells low-crown 5950s for MiLB? I’m looking for a Lake County Captains hat. Fanatics used to have it, but it’s now listed as out of stock. This is what I’m trying to find: https://www.fanatics.com/lake-county-captains-new-era-home-authentic-collection-on-field-low-profile-59fifty-fitted-hat-navy/p-13258567810240+z-9640-547264182
  9. I think that picture is the real deal, but it’s at least a little weird that the Jets have three jersey colors and three pants colors, which theoretically gives you nine potential combos, and yet they have six guys lined up showing only three combos, with each one duplicated.
  10. In the same interview where Dee Haslam confirmed new uniforms are on the way for 2020, she also said they’d be weaing color rush 3x again in 2019. I think this season will look a lot like 2018 — nothing new this year and a similar distribution of combinations to what we got last year. As for the Baker video, I have no reason to doubt that what they showed him was legit. “Nothing fancy” is the phrase they keep hammering home over and over. I really think whatever they unveil in 2020 is going to be a hybrid of their classic uniforms and the popular color rush. They’ll strip away the gimmicks of 2015 and go for something as simple as possible, probably overly cautious, but definitely not a repeat of the mistakes made with the current set.
  11. It’s interesting to me that the Titans got the go-ahead to tweak their numbers for the sake of legibility after one year, but the Browns are stuck with theirs for the full five.
  12. The Browns haven’t worn the orange jerseys at all the past two years, and orange/orange is the only jersey/pants combo to never be used in a game since this set was implemented in 2015. Seems pretty unlikely we see orange this year. Also, if you want any idea of how popular the color rush is in Cleveland: A few weeks ago, the team offered to make fans custom phone wallpapers using jersey template graphics. Provide name, number, preferred jersey to the team’s Twitter account, and you get a wallpaper. The phrase “color rush” was the No. 1 overall trending topic in town for most of the day.
  13. It’s kinda wonky that the WWE logo is perfectly squared up on a flag that is billowing in the breeze, but otherwise, that’s one of the best WM logos ever. I can’t wait to see what they do with the set next year.
  14. This article says Chase Field will still have the dirt path between the plate and mound: https://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/mlb/diamondbacks/2018/10/12/arizona-diamondbacks-installing-synthetic-grass-chase-field-2019/1614391002/
  15. After seeing what happened to the Browns when they overhauled their uniforms shortly after Nike took over the NFL and the Cavs’ uniforms once Nike took over the NBA, forgive me for being a little wary of what would happen to the Indians once Nike gets MLB. Also: There has been talk that the Indians are working on a new secondary mark for 2020, but nothing about a complete overhaul as far as I know.
  16. Are we getting a bunch of new Statement jerseys next year? For some reason, I remember the plan discussed during the Nike unveiling was new City jerseys every year, Statements every other year, and no formal replacement plan for Association/Icon. But I can’t find anything about that now. Am I completely misremembering?
  17. Bucks wearing black at home, but have their normal court. Don’t they have an alternate court specifically to go with these uniforms?
  18. Nope, that’s the one combo with their current set that has never been worn. The orange jerseys haven’t been worn with any color pants since 2016.
  19. I’ll never understand why the Rams changed to the white horns/facemask and single-stripe pants for their non-throwback uniform sets. It just looks so disjointed from the gold-trimmed jerseys, which have remained unchanged from St. Louis. Either overhaul the whole set or wait to overhaul the whole set until you move into the new stadium.
  20. Obviously a moot point if the Saints win this weekend, but the Super Bowl field will look so weird if the Rams play. The endzone presumably will be navy blue and white, while the team wears royal blue and gold. Not to mention the wordmark that they don’t even use on their own field. I’d like to believe the NFL would use some common sense with the field design, but my hopes are...not high.
  21. Just noticed there are no playoff logos on the field in Dallas. Was that the case in Houston too?
  22. Surprised the Browns broke out the brown pants. I don’t think they’ve worn brown pants on the road since Week 2, when they had a brutal loss vs the Saints. Not to mention they had a lot of success in the orange pants down the stretch this year.
  23. That is true. The brown was tweaked with the previous uniform update in 2006. Darker, yes, but I always thought it contrasted better with the lighter pre-2015 orange.
  24. The Browns’ color rush is actually the same brown as their standard brown jersey, which is the same shade of brown as their previous uniforms, pre-2015. The orange was tweaked in 2015, the brown was not. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/12374006/cleveland-browns-tweak-helmet-color-unveil-new-dawg-pound-logo
