  1. The old set was terrible and will forever be associated with 28-3. This set is an improvement yes (a really low bar to clear) but I'd have preferred they went back to a red helmet and let the Glanville Falcons vibe finally die off. The "ATL" on the jerseys seems wholly unnecessary but then again I'm not from Atlanta, so it's not for me I guess?
  2. Bucco Bruce has gone the way of the Sean Connery Pirates logo I'm afraid. I think you could do a lot wiith the current helmets with a smaller logo, and a mostly red/white/orange uniform color scheme, that maybe has some limited pewter accents to tie in the helmet.
  3. a red helmet would be a nice change of pace Jerry Glanville will be rolling over in his grave though (apparently he's still alive) His bed I mean. rolling over in his bed.
  4. Sea Lions is good. It's regional, alliterative, and unlike a seahawk/seadog it actually exists as more than a nickname of another species. The marketing possibilities are endless. Sockeyes is similar just to a lesser extent IMO. Fish don't tend to be exciting as a mascot unless they're highly predatory. Totems/Metropolitans work as well. Not as exciting as the first two, but the history is important, though I can see how the MLB team makes the latter one somewhat problematic. Emeralds I like as well but I can see how it limits you in terms of branding and marketing. Everything else just ranges from sounding like bad minor league to just try hard names.
  5. Kraken sucks as a name for a team in the Pacific Northwest. It's a mythical sea beast from Scandinavian folklore that allegedly lived in the North Atlantic. This would be the equivalent of a new team in Miami calling themselves the Narwhals. (yes I realize those are real) If only the Pacific Northwest had their own mythical beast lurking in the area...hmmmmmmm
  6. when was the last time the Super Bowl had no black and no blue in it? Super Bowl XIX? (Niners vs Dolphins)
  7. that jacket reminds me of Billy Martin kicking dirt on an umpire
  8. The stick in rink is an OK secondary logo but sucks hard as a main. Johnny Canuck wouldve been a better option for the 3rd jersey
  9. the black outlines on the Chiefs logo, even though black is present nowhere else in the uniform or color scheme.
  10. I loathe the orca logo in all it's iterations. It's a generic and thinly-veiled nod to a corporate entity that's no longer involved with the team. Bring back the flying skate! Let Seattle try to do something more creative with the blue/green scheme.
  11. Boy do I have a uniform for you....
  12. Why is "Kraken" even a thing for Seattle? It's a mythical sea creature allegedly from the North Atlantic. It'd be like naming a team from Florida the "Sasquatch"
  13. Warren Moon approves. (and to a lesser extent, Cam Newton)
  14. the white helmet gives them a navy Bills kind of feel
  15. I did like the Apollos look. The helmet was a little "different" but I'm a sucker for that purple/orange color combo going back to the days of the original Frankfurt Galaxy
  16. The thing I don't get is that a jet is a pretty damn cool and inspiring thing. It's literally the embodiment of speed and power and every other desirable athletic trait. Yet, how the NY Jets have always incorporated so little to none of that kind of imagery into their identities its a sin. And now they've gone through yet another redesign, it still appears to be more of the same. This team could just as well be called the "Force" or the "Express" or the "Gothamites" and it wouldn't make any bit of difference uniform wise.
  17. Maybe the Jets can just buy and recolor the Memphis Express' uniforms then. I hear the AAF could use the money.
  18. one might argue that the team themselves is Miller branded, so anything at Miller Park is technically team specific but YMMV.
  19. I dont hate it. That's all I'll say.,
  20. Their jerseys are fine, it's their logos that I think have always sucked hard, with possibly the exception of the cannon roundel.
  21. Really like those uniforms, and they always make me wish the NHL had a kelly green/white team. *cough* Seattle *cough*
  22. My hope is that the Lightning, especially if they don't win a Cup this year, get rid of the whole "Maple Wings" look now that Stevie Y is gone, and go back to something closer to their traditional look incorporating the black and blue together in a decent way and not the extremes of their current home, road,and thirds.
  23. Game isn't in Pittsburgh, it's at Lincoln Financial Field in Philly.,
  24. If you want to see Blue & Maize you'd have to watch Michigan, because those aren't the Rams colors in any set they've ever worn
