  1. The Frisco RoughRiders have my ideal Rangers color scheme. Brick red, slate blue, and cream.
  2. I think the current version of the Kachina jerseys is maybe the only example of the Adidas collars improving a design. I always thought the biggest weakness of the originals was how big and clunky the collars were. I hope that they make some tweaks to the design if they decide to pull the trigger on making the logo the primary. The big triangular yoke made the thing a little too busy, IMO.
  3. "Green city" at the end there is interesting
  4. That graphic really lays out how unnecessary all these alts are. You could very easily get every team down to 3 jerseys without losing anything of value.
  5. On the homes and roads, I like the red-white-blue trim but I don't understand adding the drop shadow to the numbers but not the scripts on the front. They're clearly unwilling to change the primary cap logo, so you might as well go all in on the drop shadow concept. I hate that they still can't decide if the primary home uniform should have blue or red caps. The new alternate caps are irredeemably awful. That script is also terrible, especially when compared to what came before.
  6. The thing about the Cowboys is that the vast majority of the merchandise they've sold for 20+ years is navy, so if they were ever to simplify the look, it would most likely involve bringing the white uniform in line with the navy one, instead of returning to a 70s inspired set with a royal blue and a silver blue. I think both their primary looks are largely fine in isolation, fwiw; the only thing I actively dislike about either is the silver green pants of the white set. I wish we could have this look instead of the lame modern equivalent, but we can't have nice things under the one helmet rule.
  7. I do believe there's a way to improve the Flames' retro look with the inclusion of black trim, but I don't trust them to keep it limited to a tertiary color. There's already too many teams with the black helmet, red jersey, black pants look; the Flames don't need to be one.
  8. Nike should stop giving teams multiple new alts every year. Most of these Statement uniforms are dull as hell.
  9. This leaked on Uni-Watch in June. I think they're just going to let it rock with the swooshed-up Flex Base template for a year or two before Nike unveils their own spin on things. Remember that this deal was put together on relatively short notice after Under Armour backed out.
  10. I mean, this is the same league that has had Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Mother's Day, and Father's Day special event uniforms for the past few years (I might be forgetting one). If I had to speculate, I'd say New Era would be the outside force pushing for these things the most, as this year MLB pulled back from having Mother's and Father's Day jerseys but kept the special caps. What's most baffling about this promotion is that black-on-black and white-on-white New Era caps have been readily available for every team for over a decade.
  11. I saw someone suggest putting Carolina on there instead of Canes, and now I really wish that's what they actually went with.
  12. All NHL division champion banners should be consolidated into a single banner. I know the Capitals did that after people made jokes about all their "Southeast Division Champs" banners.
  13. That was one of the reasons given for why the Stars dropped gold in their rebrand. When their current silver gets distorted across applications, at least it's just different shades of gray. Flat gold can turn into beige or mustard, which can lead to some really ugly looking merch.
  14. I can't find a good picture of it, but the Ballpark in Arlington used to have flags for all 30 teams in standings order above the office building in center field, along with their meager collection of AL West champion flags. For the 2010 playoffs, they replaced all of them with Texas state flags, and it's remained that way ever since. I think they've won enough stuff over the past decade so that there's no longer enough space for every team, regardless.
