  1. On the Unified podcast, they didn't want to carry two different gray pants on road trips so they just dropped one of them.
  2. We don't need another team with numerals in their team name.
  3. That is true. The A's are notorious for deviating from the norm in their uniform identity. It works for them that they are a little different in this sense.
  4. If they do adopt it, that would mean they are dropping their cursive script then match it, right? Could be a transition if they do go kelly green full time
  5. Ah that's pretty cool. I'd welcome that as the road cap but keep the current A's home one.
  6. If they adopt that "O" logo for Oakland and use it on the road, I can be down for that. Basically the Mother's Day cap with the logo in yellow instead.
  7. This is a mess for the Cards. Never liked them wearing red on the road and then blue when they face opponents who have red. That's just odd. Keep it as it was: red at home, blue on road and keep the Sunday alt if you want. I don't mind the matching helmets in this situation because at least they won't be lugging two possible batting helmets on the road. But you do have a point about helmets not matching the caps. I hate what the A's have done for a while now. It's bothered me for so long. They have one batting helmet for home and road. But of course the helmet when worn on the road never matches the cap they wear. It used to match, but not anymore. Then when it comes to their kelly green alts, their cap and helmet don't match either. What a mess.
  8. Mariners and teal-billed caps should only go with the white and teal jerseys. Solid navy for road an navy tops/
  9. Ahhh yes, now that makes more sense. But also makes less sense why they would decide to use this out of nowhere.
  10. Apparently, it has never been part of the team logo history. https://www.sportslogos.net/logos/list_by_team/69/Oakland_Athletics/ Feels more Cincinnati Reds
  11. If these were a standalone uniform that pays tribute to the city (marathon, flag colors), sure, it works. But because you're adding this to a franchise with so much history (especially in their color and design) and introduce something that's completely opposite, it doesn't work. SMH Nike.
  12. I know they won't but I kinda want them to complete that throwback look with a gradient helmet.
  13. Yes but that wasn't what the OP was saying. The line for out of bounds and they key are the same color. That is a poor design
  14. Leaked draft caps. Not confirmed if these are the designs but if they are, they're just ok. Not great but not bad.
  15. Looking back at the Jags photos, it made me realize how for Reebok, they've messed around with a different placement and design of collars for the NFL shield/Equipment logo. Reebok initially had the NFL logo right at the tip of the black collar, a carryover from Nike. Then they would change it with the NFL Equipment logo on a separate colored fabric and taper the collar (teams like DEN and BUF also had this). Then when they had the uniform change, the NFL Equipment logo was placed lower onto the mesh of the uniform body which actually wasn't on the collar. (SF, SD were a couple teams who did this too)
  16. 1 - That would mean teams should have two spring training uniforms to avoid this except for teams who can have an alt that isn't shared by anyone else (COL-purple, OAK-green, etc.) It is another merch opportunity though. Or one team just wears their standard home whites, which is a thing too. 2 - Same. Always thought it was black until I must have seen an actual Yankees cap in person and noticed it wasn't all the way black. Probably merchandising and logo helped me differentiate the colors
  17. I would like to know if a player wore a dark undershirt how much of that shirt would be seen from the mesh? What if that shirt some print on it? Would that be seen?
  18. What works for the Jags in all black was the other black pants without stripes. That really in a sense brings cohesion to the set making it a primarily black and gold uniform. So if it was a standalone uniform that emphasizes those two colors, it works mostly. And when they changed the number on the white jerseys to black, it matched that cohesion. But changing from the number from teal to black was a mistake. Teal should always be the color of the number on the black jerseys. And I feel that they don't need anything other than white pants.
  19. Actually, they won a title wearing these and this launched their whole effort in making black a thing.
  20. Yeah some colored pants would have made a big difference
  21. Always hated that they went with the orange jerseys as their primary. I didn't even like them as an alternate because that blue side horn thing on the jersey doesn't match the one on the pants.
  22. That makes a lot of sense. And white bengal tigers do exist. I do miss TV numbers on this but that's maybe because I am so used to having them on a jersey. With the way it should look on a player, there may not be any good room for it anyhow with this design.
  23. Oh yeah they did do that last season. Obviously, red socks completes the look so much better. They did kind of tease it.
  24. That's how the NFL is justifying the one helmet rule: a safety issue. But does another helmet worn by the same player during a season actually make a difference? Depends on who you ask.
