  1. Me thinks Aaron Dodson is a 90s uni-lover.

    I will say, I will forever dislike Reebok for introducing the no hem pajama bottom. Ruined so many jerseys and over the 10 years they had the contract, the Blackhawks(hem stripes,heavy logo and all) won 3 cups. Throw in the Bruins,Penguins(this year) too.

    I agree, I just wish the blue sleeves came up a little higher. I'm glad they also kept the strings on the numbers and piano collar.

    Great post. This post should just be put up on the comments "Hall of Fame".
  5. I also like the Giants road unis. At least they stay true to their color palette and for the most part, it seems most of us like the classic looks so if people think the home blue jersey is boring, at least the roads add a little something to the table. Plus, as we all know if you follow this site, the have won 2 Superbowls in those uniforms so it will always live in Giants history( Do you hear me LA Kings,Cavaliers etc.). Works for me.
  6. I actually also like the Hawks identity. I agree though that the mixing of the shorts and jerseys is terrible. It also may to do with the fact that I absolutely despised the uniforms they had before these( those boring red and navy for navy sake jobs). The volt color is calm enough to where it doesn't take over the jersey plus it gives a nod to the Maravich jerseys.
  7. Solaris, it was like you were reading my mind. Did anyone ever consider Vegas when expansion was discussed? If so, I sure as hell don't remember. You mean you mean to tell me any of the Canadian places discussed i.e Hamilton , Quebec or anyone else north of the the border wouldn't have been a better choice! As far as the US, KC and Seattle seem far more attractive than Vegas but as wildwing64 made reference's all about the money.
  8. bosrs1, Thanks for the info. At least I can make some sense out of this Vegas move and expansion team.
  9. Excuse me for being unformed here but I've never had the pleasure (or nonpleasure, HEHE) of being to Vegas. I always thought that it was a city in the middle of a desert and mostly made up of tourists. First, from a football point of view, I always thought they were afraid to have a team in Vegas because of sports betting and second, I can think of 4 or 5 other cities that hockey would flourish in. I guess my real question is...does Vegas have enough residents to create a stagnant fan base?
  10. What font would you say is used on the the 1969 home Padres jersey(brown letters trimmed in yellow). Thanks!
  11. This is terrible. I couldn't think they could get worse.I really want brown but if I couldn't have it, the 2004 unis were great. It opened the park(not that that always matters)(WOW that that), and it covered what the Padres always use as an excuse. "San Diego is a blue town". Oh really! It also has a light blue sky,and sand. Those sand uniforms were also a great touch(not gray). When I went on the ballpark tour in October, the tour guide said Petco Park has been open for going on 13 years. I couldn't believe it, how fast time goes but my point is that would have been 13 years , the longest stretch of a Padres uniform. Damn i'm pissed. I received my authentic brown jersey today that I ordered thinking it would more prominent but I'm sending it back. I have every Padres jersey up until 1990 and the 2004 sand but no for money from me Padre jersey committee.
  12. I did read what he typed and my only point was that every logo he mentioned was from right after the 4 team WHA expansion. The Canadiens,Bruins,Oilers and Sabres are easily identifiable logos. I think most of us can say any logo after the expansion explosion, has to be questioned.Every time a see a list of best logos in the league, it's usually the same. I will say I hate teams winning the Stanley Cup terrible versions of their uniforms(SEE KINGS) but no one cares except us jersey nuts.
  13. I agree with daniel75. The Islanders logo has more thought into into it than the Canadiens, Bruins, Oilers and Flyers. Ill give the Sabres credit for coming up with a duel-meaning logo. The only thing that's trapped in the 70's (if you want to say it) is the color orange. If it was red instead of orange, it would look timeless.
  14. Well. Seattle would have been perfect(as far as an American team goes)....great fan base(even soccer),western conference and a Seattle/Vancouver rivalry would flourish.Oh, and what happened to Kansas City, I thought their arena was ready to take the Islanders. Vegas is a tourist town. I don't see it building a following because people just fly in and out. I still feel Canada should have got the team and I feel this came out of left field. I never remember Vegas on a short list when it came to to mentioning expansion. Also,"we so called hockey fans" want to watch quality hockey, not watered down hockey.
  15. I know this isn't a nightmare but I still can't believe Las Vegas is getting an NHL team. What happened to Quebec,Hamilton or Seattle. They would be much better for the league. I'm from New Jersey and I can't believe how Canada got screwed out of getting another team. Sorry, just ranting!
  16. The Mets and Yankees dichotomy depends on which way the standings go. As the Yankees got older in the 60's and along came the Mets (albeit most were disgruntled Dodgers and Giants fans) it was split because the Yankees were still winning or making it to the Series. In 1969, when the lovable loser Mets won, that evened it out for a few years. The Yankees were terrible by now and the Mets made the Series in 1973. Than after Steinbrenner came along, the Yanks took over the town. The 80's it was strictly a Mets town, the 90's it was a Yanks town again and now the wheel goes round and round. Although , I never thought the Mets would be able to take back or get even in terms of fan dome here in the NJ/NY area. Its all about winning.
  17. I was just wondering why it seems there is a lot more coverage of the Cubs winning the World Series than what the White Sox got in 2005. About ten years seemed to separate them as far as series appearances go and a few years between winning the World Series. I'm from the northeast so I have no idea if Chicago is a 80 percent Cubs, 20 percent White Sox but it seems that way. Thanks for any feedback.
  18. As far as MLB goes, other than the Brewers .Dbacks(horrible) and Padres, the league seems OK. No more BFFBS,except the Reds but if you go down the list, the league isn't that bad. I just want the Mets to never ever ever ever change uniforms.
  19. I was at a Petco Park tour on Monday and everything in the store was 50 percent off. I asked the person leading our tour and they both said they had no knowledge of a change or non change. Everyone I spoke to are leading towards brown but I guess we shall have to wait.
  20. Amen. As said before by many, it's a real shame they raised the two cups in that jersey. The large crown would be so much better.
  21. What has always bugged me about teams moving is when the team takes the identity with them and it doesn't make sense. The biggest one is the Los Angeles Lakers. I'm sure there are many of lakes in California but Minnesota is known for its proximity to the great lakes. Another one(it's amazing how historical these franchises are), the Dodgers. When they moved to LA it made no sense because the name "Dodgers" was given because people in Brooklyn were known for having to "dodge" trolley cars speeding down Brooklyn streets. I believe, although I'm not certain, I recall the Utah Jazz asking the Lakers for their name because of course Utah and Salt Lake City makes sense but their was no way that was happening with all of the history the LA Lakers accomplished. I just believe, if a team moves, there are certain situations that scream identity change.
  22. Thanks oddball, I have the 1987 jersey but I never understood why Mitchell ad Ness never made the 1986 Mets road version. Thanks anyway.
  23. I was just wondering if anyone know where to get some of these throwback jerseys(retail). I wanted the gray 1986 Mets one but the Majestic site doesn't have it and I called the store at Citi Field and they informed me they wouldn't be carrying it. It's strange how some of the jerseys are available and some are not. I know most of you already know but Majestic is having a major sale on Authentic cool base jerseys. Thanks for any help on that Mets jersey.
