  1. Some teams just play it too safe, and the first one I thought of was the Dallas Stars. I really dislike their whole brand. It's an attempt at a traditional uniform (Blackhawks ripoff) with a modern logo. It's very uninspiring. It reminds me of a high school trying to pull in a bunch of elements from different sets of good uniforms. The Dolphins and the Falcons are bad too. I'm not sure if it's because teams are now using more alternates, but it seems that a lot of organizations can't figure out what fans really want. The Diamondbacks tried to use elements from like four jersey periods, and it looked like crap.
  2. Thanks for making this thread. I realized after that my post about Minnesota jerseys wasn't really about updates or new developments; I just wanted to post some of my favorites. My wife and I plan on moving to Minnesota in a year to be closer to family. I don't usually get interested in high school sports, but Minnesota hockey is really neat. You seem to have big schools vs smaller ones, Northern schools against city schools, private vs public, etc. It means a lot to these towns. I will have to think about some of the favorites outside of Edina and Cloquet. You're right about the Blackhawks being a the go-to template.
  3. I was having the thought the other day that I don't recall pro teams or many major colleges that use royal blue and yellow. Those were the colors of my high school, and it seems like that just does not fit in pro sports. The only colleges I can think of off the top of my head that use royal blue and yellow are UC Riverside and smaller schools Limestone College and Lander University. I may just be completely having a brain fart. Edit: Now that I looked it up, I totally forgot about the Rams and Pitt throwbacks. But other than that, you don't see the colors much.
  4. I'm late to the party, but I've been interested in Minnesota High School hockey lately. There are some great jerseys in Minnesota. I love green and yellow. This may be unoriginal, but Edina has some great unis. Some of my favorites in any sport. Plus, Lakeville North's are great, too (in the same picture below). These are pretty cool, too - Cloquet-Esko-Carlton Lumberjacks.
  5. Movistar is so lame. I like Lotto-Soudal.
  6. A logo on both sides of the helmet - what a novel concept.
  7. Those Memphis jerseys are nice... I had no idea.
  8. Gamecocks going with Black Helmet, Garnet, Jerseys, Garnet Pants for first time ever. Uniform Reveal
  9. He just wanted a reason to talk about how well Clemson football is doing. Have not noticed.
  10. I was trying to search for their official football Twitter page, and I typed in "Missouri football" and nothing. They're all in with Mizzou.
  11. I've always worn low-profile hats. I guess a true "dad hat" has the adjustable buckle on the back. Lids even categorizes hats like this now. Who knew? I was shocked to see the Warriors championship hat be unstructured. Oh well.
  12. I love the Chargers' brand, but I wouldn't mind seeing a rebrand. The Chargers are from San Diego.
  13. I've always liked Illinois State. Montana has a great identity too. Wichita State is awesome. Now for the worst. What is with Evansville? No offense, but it seems faceless. They're old logo was unique.
  14. Surprised by how much they have worn the white helmets. I think garnet is considered the primary now. You see it at press conferences, practices, the first game, etc. Yeah, garnet helmet, black jersey, white pants is perfect.
  15. Gamecocks wearing Black/Garnet/Black for first time ever
  16. Cubs, Blackhawks, Bears, Bulls - Born in Chicago, raised a fan South Carolina Gamecocks - raised there, went to school there Valpo basketball - My mom went there
  17. I'm not sure if there is a place for this on this board, or if it is even allowed, but I recently took a chance and bought a "'47 mystery original mystery franchise". Basically, for 12 dollars, you take a chance and '47 Brand will send you a random hat. (It is probably a creative way to get rid of their stuff that didn't sell). Anyways, I took a chance last week and got a Cubs hat, which I happened to already have, but it is my favorite hat, so it was cool to get a hat that is discontinued. I tried it again and got a Dolphins hat. I won't wear it. Does anyone have a new or gently used hat they want to trade? Preferably something low profile, relaxed fit?
  18. No, you're not. Some people view it as a "class act", but jerseys like these cheapen the message. If it raises money for a cause, I guess can't get upset, but it always seems more about the jersey than the intent.
  19. Been waiting for these for a loong time... Never been happier with the uniforms...
