    There is no way that navy/black combo should work and yet I’m finding myself not hating it. 

    The Oilers should have never deviated from the 2015-2017 uniforms. The royal and shade of orange looked waaaay better.

    But this is the cap they wore the first few years in California.

    I love these uniforms.Side note, Reggie totally belongs in the HOF as an A. 


  3. This is tremendous. I always liked those 80s uniforms and when they were thinking about building their own stadium, I would've wanted these uniforms(however, I would add silver, NOT GRAY, for the jet fighter effect) and would have called their new stadium(which was supposed to be roofed for big events) "The Hangar". Alas, the Giants and jets built the most boring new stadium in the league.


  4.  I really wish the NBA would pick up a book (like a dictionary) sometimes.

    The timeline is a little hazy, but a new logo and uniforms are on the way for the Cavs:

    Separately, I’ve heard that the team is phasing out navy and going with wine/gold/black/white. This makes sense, as if you look closely, their primary court this season is limited to those colors (the drop shadow on the logo at center court is black instead of navy).

    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.

    Does anyone actually like the Padres camo alts? They looked really bad today against the D-Backs red jerseys

    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.

    Braves have removed the ASG patch from their gray jerseys, though you can clearly see the remnants of it.  It looks terrible - not sure if it's glue or stitching that's left behind, but they may need to get all new jerseys for their next road trip.

     

    EDIT:

     

     

    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.

    Exactly. It’s embarrasssing that an expansion team whose biggest star was a goalkeeper on the wrong side of his prime made a serious playoff run?

     

    It’s embarrassing for the other teams, if anything. It’s not like they put together the hockey version of the Nets in one summer...

    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.


  9. 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:

    On the Kings, i get the argument about keeping uniforms from a successful era. That being said, I would say the black/silver Gretzky era and todays set really don't look alike other than color scheme. I don't think anyone would throw a fit if the kings just went back to the Gretzky era set and kept the black/silver scheme. The issue is that this new set is brutal with the piping and the awful home plate logo. So when you see this RR in purple and yellow compared to the terrible current set, you realize how good they could look. 

    Think of it this way... if the Rams won three Super Bowls in a row in bone/gradient trash, should they be married to those design items forever? The Capitals won the cup in their piping mess of a jersey, yet we are all ready for a change. Dallas won the Cup in the star-hemmed green/black set, but I would say their current home away set is head over heals better. Just because you looked bad winning a championship, doesn't mean you need to always look bad. 

    Got that Right!!!!!

    And I hate to make anyone puke up their breakfast muffins today, but are we sure those mashup jerseys are going to be "City" or "Earned" or some other extra designation entirely?

    Too late!

    I’m gonna say it...in my opinion, thier reverse retro is the best uniform in franchise history. So much better than the current and throwback “capiLals” sets, is a best of both worlds solution between the great 90’s look and those who prefer RWB, and it just looks right for them. 

    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!!!

    Man, at this point I'm convinced that the NBA/Nike is doing this just to f*** with us.  It's almost as if they are like, "Hmmm, for certain matchups, how can we dress the teams just the right way, on just the right court, so as to totally confuse the viewer as to who the home team is?"  Maybe it's some kind of sick "game" to them.

    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.2018city-575x319.jpg

    Euro leagues cover the jersey in ads primarily as a way to keep things profitable and cover travel expenses, since they have smaller audiences and thusly lower merchandise sales than hockey in the US and Canada tends to have. Combine that with hockey naturally being a pretty expensive sport and...well, this is what you get.

     

    Unless the NHL has an enormous financial collapse that would give far more pressing issues than just jersey ads for them to deal with, I doubt it has anywhere near the losses that would require them to do this. It's just fearmongering at this point, a boogeyman to point to and decry "SEE THIS IS WHAT THEY'LL DO", completely missing the context of those jerseys.

     

    If a league as notoriously careless and slapdash about their jerseys as the NBA hasn't become :censored:ing flooded by jersey ads, I doubt the NHL will.

    Exactly, I don't want the NHL becoming the joke that the NBA uniforms have become.

    wow. ya  need to calm down. just having one helmet ad does not make it euorpean hockey. we need to relax a bit. i dont think they will ever get that bad. dude, you're chicken littleing a bit here

    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.


  16. 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 this:European hockey fans, how did jerseys become massive billboards? : hockey.....it would bother me.
