    The Hornets throwbacks, flaws and all, show me why I don't love their current look:

     

    It's too serious.

     

    The Alexander Julian uniforms and original logo had whimsy and charm. The current set is so robotic and lifeless.

     

    Exactly, and the exact same idea applies to the Orlando Magic as well. Often times taking things too seriously just leads to a boring result.

    I think it's just detailed fur,  not motion lines. 

     

    I'm not referring to the embroidery detail, I'm referring to the two lines above and below the buffalo. What is their purpose? To show that the buffalo is charging toward the swords? Just get rid of them, they don't make any sense and clutter up what is otherwise a very nice design.

    There's a difference though between the people who like new and/or different elements and people who literally just say that classic uniforms suck and anything new is good. I'm referring to the latter, here. Discussion and different tastes can be great, but this site also has plenty of people who will hate something because it doesn't fit whatever narrative they're pushing (There are PLENTY of old school contrarians too).

      

    White helmet guy a few pages back is a perfect example. He said the Browns need to leave the past behind by returning to an old look. It's some pretty obvious contrarian trolling right there, especially seeing his earlier posts that were uncovered.

     

    Fair enough, definitely in agreement on Mr. White Helmet. I don't post that to call you out specifically or anything either, it's just a distinction hope that people will make when talking to each other.


  4. I'm like 90% sure that the Browns won't be wearing anything nearly that faithful to the previous set. I can't remember the last time a team straight-up returned to a throwback. The Bills sorta did but even then the changes were significant.

    There’s gonna be something. They’ll force something in there that shouldn’t and will look bad. Then we’ll be left pining for them to have just gone back to the good uniforms while some contrarian calls us all old losers who need to stop living in the past despite being older than like 80% of the people to whom they’re referring.

     

    I'm not a big fan of this characterization popping up a lot around here lately. This is a discussion board right? Not an echo-chamber, meaning maybe some people just don't love those older uniforms. I think that should be allowed and encouraged. 


  5. As some of you may remember, the Titans announced that they were beefing up the numbers on the columbia blue alternate uniforms by "about ¾ of an inch more in 2019".

    Well, it seems that we're getting our first look now as the defense has been rocking the thicker numbers in practice-

    Here's a side-by side to give a better idea-

    I've addressed it before, but the new font developed by Nike is too thin and doesn't fit the name "Titans" very well at all. It's obviously a small tweak, but it looks a lot better in my eyes and makes me wish that they'd adjust the numbers like this for all colors. 


  6. These look like a definite improvement, even if only a slight one. The Bay uniform in particular looks really nice.

    Looks good, my only complaints are “The Town” still being used in San Fransisco, and the Wishbone Collar rather than a V Neck or Round Collar. Yay to the return of “The City” Hardwood Classics Uniform.

     

    I agree that still clinging to "the Town" after this move is a bit lame, but totally disagree on the collars. I think that the wishbone collar has become a unique feature for GS that just works on their unis.


  7. I don't know if this is unpopular, but the Maverick green and blue look isn't good either. Nothing about those colors screams "Dallas" or "Mavericks" to me, in fact the two sort of clash to me. The logos and uniforms were also equally uninspired. The Mavericks would really benefit from something fresh to match their young roster. 


  8. The Mavericks need new branding desperately, perhaps more than any other team in sports. They have the colors right but the emo horse, wonky logos and horrible fonts just complete one of my least favorite identities ever.


  9. I feel like I'm trapped in a time loop whenever the Browns are brought up here...

     

    white facemask vs. grey facemask

     

    bulldog vs. football B vs. elf vs. helmet logo

     

    orange pants vs. no orange pants

     

    I could go on, but most people like the old uniform and that opinion likely wont change anytime soon on here. That said, there is almost no chance that they adopt that uniform exactly as it was. I'm betting on a streamlined set based on the color rush that mirrors the sort of minimalism that college football is infatuated with right now


  10. I actually think that the Dolphins have struck a pretty great balance with their current set. The logo is the best that the Dolphins have had in their entire history and the newest update makes their uniforms one of the most solid sets in the league. The throwbacks are great too, but they are definitely relics of the past.


  11. A fiesta Spurs alternate >>>>>> A digi camo Spurs alternate

     

    The black and silver will always embody the seriousness of that franchise, but those bright colors could make for a really nice change of pace. Plus, those classic San Antonio All Star jerseys from the 90's are one of the most popular jerseys I see in real life.

    This is GARBAAAAAAAAGE.

     

    In what world is the bottom jaw/teeth of a bear twice the size of the snout/upper teeth?

     

    This new logo is a big downgrade from the previous bear, which could have been pretty great with some simplification. Instead we get this wonky version with a goatee.


  13. I saw somebody call these the "Clemson Wolverines" and I think it feels that way because it essentially is a mashup of disjointed elements. The outline around that ugly paw rendering is so thin that you can hardly even see it. Pair that with a block M that's really too small and it just doesn't really work.

    Mizzou ditching the “tiger” helmet stripes they’ve had since their rebrand in 2012 and returning to their traditional helmet stripe.

     

    That's a lame move. This along with the retro helmet feel like bad attempts to reference tradition that isn't really there.
