  1. As much as I would actually love to see Tom Brady win a 5th ring (even as a Bears fan I still appreciate greatness) I can't imagine what the heck a fifth trophy would look like on a ring. They might be the first team to have championship brass knuckles...Dear Lord those are ginormous!!!
  2. Why? It's so super. You know...groovy. It's far-out, man. just saw this and I read it in Jon Gruden's voicejust saw this and I read it as Frank Caliendo's impression of Jon Gruden's voice
  3. Thank you for your recommendation of this movie. I will definitely want to see it now. The ads on TV and the radio certainly didn't seem to do it much justice because they seemed so cheesy and predictable. I was under the impression that it was trying too hard to be football's version of Moneyball. Glad to hear that you liked it. I will put it on my must see list.
  4. Unpopular opinion: That's an amazing uniform. The Astros should go back to it full-time. Exactly my opinion. No lie. It's amazing.Isn't this a popular opinion? The tequila sunrise uniforms were greatHappy happy Maybe the unpopular opinion is that the navy caps are better than the orange caps with this uniform set. I love this set but HATE the orange caps. Navy caps are the way to go in my opinion.
  5. Still doesn't change my thought process behind my comment. They are making it more about LeBron and less about the franchise. There should be THREE trophies on the FRONT of the ring. If they want to make a note about LeBron or the three players coming together or whatever, then do it on the SIDE. I'm not a fan of what they did...maybe its just me. I'm no fan of his, but I think you're wrong here. When you've got back-to-back championships, I'm okay with celebrating that on the front of the ring at the expense of all prior titles. We agree to disagree then. I feel that it should always be about the franchise on the front and the individual stories on the sides. I believe it has been that way for years and I don't know of any other professional ring that mimics this trend. I could be totally wrong, but I don't remember a team doing anything similar to this. I'm not against a team bucking the trend and creating something new. I'm just not a fan of this. It seems way too pretentious for my liking. The Lakers have done it with their recent rings. Great point. I actually noticed that after I commented while researching some of the past NBA rings. They had three triangles on the ring that seemed to represent the three titles as well as something that Jackson and the team were preaching throughout their quest. If I remember correctly it was something esoteric, which was typical of Jackson's philosophies at the time. Somehow I still don't like it with the Heat though. I must be projecting too much of my feelings about the whole LeBron thing. Who knows?
  6. I do yearn for the days of the mismatched purples (helmet that didn't come close to matching the jerseys), generic font one color number, generic pant stripes (which about 698 other football teams used), sleeve stripes crammed onto a jersey without sleeves and white shoes. Again, there are good reasons why uniforms like those of yesteryear aren't used anymore. Its just up to the teams to evolve and come up with great progressive designs. Some do, some don't and some sorta do. So are you saying that a classic uniform can't be customized to fit a modern uniform??? I don't buy what you are selling here. The Colts have made it work, the Bears made it work, as have many other teams...so why can't the Vikings? Sorry...but I simply don't agree with your assessment.

  8. I actually loved the all purple look with the previous jerseys. This look was just terrible. I personally find this entire redesign to be awful. Its been almost half of a year and I simply can't wrap my head around the new look. I want to like them but I simply can't. Its a terrible look that just totally misses the mark for me. Hopefully they will come to their senses and get rid of the ridiculous number font, awkward sleeve striping, and mismatching helmet. Maybe they will return to the classic look of the 80's and 90's...One can only hope.

  10. ^ Exactly. I think they might be acknowledging the whole "LeBron Repeat" Phenomenon. I personally don't like that.
  11. Ditto.The simplicity of the uniform and the beauty of how the red numbers fit in to the whole look makes these the best uniform/hat combo in all of baseball IMO. I put the Cardinals' home unis a slight bit behind this set as #2. This year's NLCS and quite frankly the ALCS have been a uniform lover's wet dream. I've thoroughly enjoyed watching the unis in action for all teams involved. Though I should admit that I think that Detroit's road unis need to lose the unnecessary white outline around the letters and numbers. Without that outline they would be darn near perfect. And the red sox roads need to go back to the world series winning setI totally disagree, I think this set is perfect. But of course, to each his own
  12. I'm actually torn on this one. I kind of like them, although I wish the logo was larger and the numbers a bit smaller; but I'm not 100% sure if it still works. To your point, it does distract from the logo. I guess a good rule of thumb that I've tried to stick to holds true in this case: if you are not sure about it, then just ditch it. Therefore I would probably just ditch the numbers.

  14. OMG...If my OCD was a plant then this thread would be bright sunshine! haha...thank you to all of you for pointing out a deluge of nit-picky and totally inconsequential details that I will be obsessing over for years to come.
  15. But, hat would only give the bears two stripes on their blue pants and there would still be an inconsistency. Huh? It would be the same blue-white-orange-white-blue stripe from the socks and sleeves, but laid on a blue background. Did you not see my visual aid? It's exactly the same treatment their helmet logo gets: Right, it would be the same blue/white/orange/white/blue treatment, but there are only three stripes. The color layout is the same, but because the pants are blue, there are no blue stripes.Edit: For whatever reason, in the other post you quoted from me, I said two, when I meant three stripes. I'm in phone. That's one way to look at it, but I like to look at that set of stripes as a white-orange-white stripe encased in blue. It's how all the stripes match on the Blackhawks white uniforms, including the pants. Whether they make the stripes on the blue pants blue/white/orange/white/blue or white/blue/orange/blue/white both are preferable to what they actually use in orange-white-orange. Being a huge Bears fan I would be lying if I said that I didn't consider the exact same thing that is being discussed here. In the end I am fine with it because the helmet does NOT have any stripes. I consider the pants and helmets to be the most important combo to match when striping is considered as opposed to jersey and pants. I feel that when the jersey and pants striping matches it is a little bit of overkill for me. I prefer the helmet and pants to match instead with the jersey acting as a complimentary element breaking up the pattern (i.e. Raiders, 49ers, Packers, Cowboys, etc.) In this case, I'm fine with the "mismatch" because again, the helmet is devoid of striping and therefore doesn't need to be matched. You can argue that they should opt for solid white or blue pants, but I argue that the striping makes it less bland. I don't know, maybe I'm odd...but I simply don't mind the classic striping in this case. It seems to work for me...regardless if I'm a fan or not. Good points made though in your commentary...very good points indeed.
