  1. I posted the first one I saw. Also even if one invocation a year is like that, I'm 100% against it.
  2. By this do you meant that most teams don't put the NFL logo at midfield? If so, I wonder if they are all going to do it this year (and whether teams like Minnesota and Pittsburgh, who share stadiums with college teams will). I could see the NFL asking/telling all teams to do it. Yes. MetLife Stadium does the NFL logo because they don't want to change out midfield turf every game, and that's understandable. But the Panthers do it because the owner says dumb like "We want to honor the NFL because we are just so grateful to the NFL for giving this fine city a team." To my knowledge, the 29 other teams all use their logo at midfield. The Vikings painted their logo at midfield last season, and I think Heinz Field now alternates between the Steelers logo and a white circle with PITT during the Panthers' season. Wow, the owner is kind of out of touch. Found this article on it : http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/wire?section=nfl&id=3223598 They also don't have a public address announcer or hype music. There is, however, a pregame prayer. Say what you will. Sure, it's great he doesn't budge, but you gotta play up the crowd for a home field advantage. That's why Seattle cleverly designed their stadium in a way that traps sound (sorry to break it to you Seahawks fans, you're not ACTUALLY that loud). Wait, this is a bad thing? OK...Not a bad thing, but I think some are opposed to a religious showing by a government funded, tax exempt organization. The Panthers (and every other team) pay taxes. The League itself recently changed its status to a tax-paying entity, as it had not been one in the past. The Panthers are a different entity than the League though. Well1. As some have mentioned, people pay taxes which go to building stadiums and funding other things the team might do 2. Regardless of that lots of people don't want to be subject to christian prayers while at a secular event 3. As another person mentioned, it's unfair unless you include every single religion on earth that could conceivably have someone represented at the game or in the very least the popular ones in the pregame prayer which is inconvenient.
  3. For some reason everybody gets all up in arms because the home jersey shouldn't say the city name as it's redundant as if it's 1900 and people don't know who's playing without the wordmark showing it...

  5. Why, so it could be an even bigger ripoff of the Nets? It already basically is a Nets "ripoff", so going a bit further doesn't make much difference in that aspect. Especially when that old Nets logo with the word 'Basketball' in it is no longer in use. Adding stars everywhere just for the sake of stars is a huge fetish of American sports branding, something that really annoys me. That's not mentioning the fact that there already is one circle of stars in the logo. What? Nets ripoff? The Sixers have had the same basic logo since 1963. The Nets ripped off the Sixers! Good try though.....
  6. https://instagram.com/p/2MNylGOge2/ On mobile so can't post pic but looks like the Eagles are back to the shiny? Even the fan jerseys last year were matte.
  7. Here's the worst part. So many bad logos and uniforms are result of there being too many cooks in the kitchen, yet somehow all those cooks couldn't catch this horrible mistake? Granted, I actually like this logo.
  8. Its funny how this is always said but until Nike entered the league we did not have rebrands that were this bad... I know the Jags rebrand was bad before Nike... I am not a "huge fan" of piping on AZ & ATL but at least they did not have all the supposed innovation that Nike brings... Almost all of the parts of the rebrands that I do not like are something silly Nike does with every school or team they touch so yeah "Nikefied"... Just to name a few capped sleeves... out of place wordmark... template filled stripes... That is not the team designing just the team picking it... Even if I agreed with your opinion that both the Browns & Vikings look better now that is still 2 out of 6 not very good except in hitting a baseball.... These were bound to happen. The 2000s brought us piping and panelling. The 2010s has brought us crazy designs and unique features. This happened in college before the NFL. Nike or Reebok both would be doing these types of rebrands.
  9. God people just like to hate. Good job Wizards. Waaaaaay better. Yes it's a roundel, but the NBA rules make it so that is one of only a few good options.
  10. 2,8,5,9,1,4,3,7,6 1,7,8,9,6,2,4,3,5 9,8,7,1,6,5,2,4,3
  11. What's the main home jersey? Brown or Orange? Do we know the main 3 combos?
  12. The only thing I don't like is the orange numbers on the white jersey.
  13. I like that Phillies white hat look honestly.
  14. I personally think the Warriors uniforms are top 5 in the league and the best of the modern ones. It's a modern classic.
