  1. Makes it more puzzling is there is not even any novelty to it since you've had a team wear that black/grey/silver combo for 40 years in San Antonio.
  2. I was really about to go off on incorporating black out of nowhere but realized they did have black trim in the Ken O'Brien/Blair Thomas 90s set so I have no grounds there. But going the Browns route with lettering stitched on the front is a mistake as this element is too far afield for this league, especially with so many sets unchanged going on decades. Someone brought it up earlier in the thread - a NCAA group of five worthy look. Marshall Thundering Herd and North Texas Eagles should be flattered by the imitation. Positive wise the helmet is outstanding in every way.
  3. ^Compounded even moreso by the colors Carolina blue and Navy being so attractive together. Titans have had a gold-level color scheme since 1998, but choose to throw that commodity away with that above design.
  4. It’s a bigger problem in that each team has so many more variations of jerseys it’s going to blur the line on what their ‘standard’ set is. And the Nike labeling is upsurd as who can keep track of the names for each set. Earned vs city vs icon. It’s just a mess.
  5. Oooh boy haha... yes you're right that makes much more sense
  6. Ha had to comment it makes me smile knowing people born in 90s still know about my Houston Oilers! What a great franchise they were.
  7. Olden Polynice era Sacatomato Kings puncturing your vision with the gradient introduction, and then the Bison Dele era Pistons succumbing to the teal craze of the decade, very badly as you can see. Circa 1995-1998 I wanna say.
  8. Lakers home games have always been color on color except Sundays (since 2003).
  9. Is there not some steady creep in the size of the ad space. I remember it was supposed to be either 2x2 or 2x3... and with this one the squarespace font looks to take up a lot more room.
  10. Basically how not to do a red and black game. Compare to what an Ohio State vs Georgia game if they've ever faced off as the opposite standard.
  11. Adidas thinking this is their showcase is sorely mistaken. What a disaster visually. NCSU needs to go back to swoosh.
  12. 40 year old Ginobili and 20 year old Murray. And when Manu was 20, was Nike's first foray with NBA jerseys in 1997.
  13. I remember seeing that jumpman logo in middle school - somewhere around 1990 or so. So after 27 years, the logo is being donned on uniforms of football teams. If it's universal and fits outside of basketball, why did it take so long for this to happen? I think the argument would be that it's meant to be exclusive - that only a few echelon programs merit affiliation - UNC, UC, Cal. That's why there's only three college bball teams that wear it right? So here comes Harbaugh being totally non-orthodox in everything he's doing at UM, and pulls this gimmick out. UNC itself I heard didn't want it when they were the first offered. Now they become the 2nd team. Here's my thinking - it will fall off the wayside. It's absurdity will eventually be parceled out, especially when the teams can revert back to the parent swoosh. The Jordan logo is superfluous If anything it should've been used on a college baseball team first. At least there's a direct correlation there. Previously non-bball athletes wore it on their shoes. I can totally buy that since it started out as a shoe logo.
  14. That Jordan logo has what can be described as a cult following. A legion of young folks born around and after Jordan retired in 1998 don that logo on every type of clothing. Just go to your local mall. It's definitely beneficial marketing my Nike but I don't think any UNC player was upset having to don that logo on the helmet. And I agree with you absolutely garrish and unnecessary. UNC and Michigan football is sporting a basketball logo. That'll never make sense to me.
  15. Liking Sacramento. Got a very Colorado Rockies vibe. Good combo.
