  1. I really wish the NBA would pick up a book (like a dictionary) sometimes. Uniform | Definition of Uniform by Merriam-Webster › dictionary › uniform (Entry 1 of 4) 1 : having always the same form, manner, or degree : not varying or variable uniform procedures. 2 : consistent in conduct or opinion uniform interpretation of laws. 3 : of the same form with others : conforming to one rule or mode : consonant.
  2. What's funny is that in the article, the "artist" talks about being able to identify with a Lakers jersey when the NBA is changing jerseys 56 times a year. So how is someone suppose to identify with a team. Even if they come up with a great design, it will be gone in a few years anyway.
  3. Another F$%king cash grab. When does it end. Maybe since they won't give us "normal" jerseys, we can pay for them with this:
  4. As a card carrying member of the "I'm so happy the Padres are back in brown" club. I don't like the camos at all.
  5. Yeah, well I'm not surprised because of this "cool base" bull crap. The material is so cheap and I wonder if they even sell a lot of the authentic jerseys as compared to replicas. They probably can't take the patch off with a seam ripper for fear of ripping the cheap material. I used to love the feel of the heavier authentic jerseys and you felt like you got your moneys worth. The NHL is no better when you can see every bit of the equipment a player is wearing under his white jersey. Good post BBTV.
  6. Totally agree with you andrewharrington. Call it what you want but it as still embarrassing in my opinion. I will say, more than ever, it's all about getting "in the tournament". Expansion isn't always good for leagues(the Cup hasn't been in Canada in almost 30 years) and now there's another team coming next year. Remember, also in 2019, the Blues were DEAD LAST in the league on January 3rd(the last "normal") NHL year and won it all. Home ice means nothing anymore in the playoffs. Last year seemed to work well with some teams getting byes, which led to one of the best teams in the decade of the 10s finally win their 2nd Cup. Anyway, yes although it may have been a great backstory, the Golden Knights making it to the Finals in their first year was a bit of a joke to me.
  7. This is just terrible but hopefully the Mets will wear them a handful of times and that's it. If it's a nod to the 2000 and 2006, so be it(they lost to the damn Yankees in them, that should be enough not to bring them back) and in 2015 they made the series in what they wear now. It's funny, I remember when I was begging for the Padres to go back to brown and the Mets, A's, Rangers get rid of the BFBS and I was told "just because those teams wore those uniforms(70s-80s) when you were a kid, doesn't make them good". Now the shoe is on the other foot and 20 years have gone by and those Met fans have grown up and want what they remember when they were kids. Nike wins again too!! I really can't believe they would screw with the jerseys they have now. In fact, after the Brewers, Padres and Diamondbacks changed recently, I gotta say the league has never looked better as a whole.(yes, the Rangers may have taken a step back and Miami still can't get it right). Okay, I'm all over the place, this Mets thing has me so:
  8. Totally agree. That was the issue I had with the 90s uniforms, the colors. The Reverse Retros are better. These 90s colors made no sense!!! These do!!!
  9. I've been on the "money grab" opinion for years but you may be onto something. It's gotten worse every year. Some teams that didn't really have an identity yet, really got cheated. Oh, how I miss these Thunder uniforms.
  10. Exactly, I don't want the NHL becoming the joke that the NBA uniforms have become.
  11. Well, I guess you took that picture seriously, so I'll just explain that I don't want the NHL putting ads on jerseys like the NBA. So, I'll leave it at that.
  12. Yeah, but once that AD door is open, who know what the corporations will try to get away with. We are a uniform forum, so that being said, we probably care more than any hockey fans about the way the team's uniforms look, If I have to watch games with uniforms like would bother me.
  13. Lou is there for one reason only, to win a Cup. I remember when he was running the Devils, he always said the Devils jerseys are staying the same. He fought for a while before he gave in to the Heritage uniform and stadium series. So, I agree with you tp49, if Malkin and Ledecky wanted to bring back the Fisherman for RR, they would have.
  14. Glad to see the dislike for the NBA uniform program, especially after that red-orange game a few weeks ago. I've been complaining about the 61 different jerseys for each team every year and then changing them the next. Even the names of the jerseys are dumb. I think I broke a record tonight to giving out likes, between the terrible Celtics banner comment, Lakers "not" the gold team at home, Portland Raiders etc. Grant it, there are some teams that need an identity like the Thunder( had a good one a few years ago, but of course it's shelved) but many teams have an identity (Lakers. Bulls, Celtics, Spurs) and the league is just messing around with them for a money grab. Let's get rid of some of these uniform programs.
  15. So true, just look at this mess:
  16. No, the Islanders colors are exactly where they need to be. The RR that they have now sort of got them back to respectability on the uniform front separating from the Fisherman years(and Islander logo/fisherman jersey). It was a sigh of relief to look "normal" again. Then came the Reebok 2007 fiasco and now back to the original colors. There was also a lot of NFNS at the time, just look at the Oilers. they looked so much better prior to going to navy and a strange shade of orange.
  17. Amazing how they're only realizing it's a mess now. Cha-ching. Better late then never.
  18. There was this waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 1964:
  19. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Finally(although it did happen in 2013). So glad this happened and even got press. There's only one way to express the happiness I feel now, take it away RERUN(R.I.P.)......
  20. Right on IceCap, personally, I think certain posters are trying to extend this thread just for the hell of it.
