    I hate that the mismatched sleeve and hem strips are back on the white. They fixed that error, and now it's back. It was dumb then, it's terrible now.

    Meh. It’s part of their signature look. It’s a flaw that really “makes” the uniform, you know?


    I do like the little white stripes as well, but I can see why it’s a flaw for some people. The updated crest looks fantastic, as well as the entirety of the road uniform and typography. It’s nice to see the Sabres didn’t completely screw it up!

    I always thought the copper stripes were outlined in red to 'warm' them up so to speak.  To make the shade of copper, which could appear quite dull on the jersey fabric, lean more towards orange than brown.

    Yeah, that would make sense, especially in the age of experimenting with metallic fabrics. 

    I’m just happy the Oilers never went crazy with the McFarlane alternate.



    Though, it didn’t look awful with orange added.

  3. I’m a Crime in Sports fan, so I want to get obscure jerseys of some of the athletes they’ve covered. My wish list looks like this:


    - Knicks Anthony Mason
    - Nets Micheal "Sugar" Ray Robinson


    - Expos Ron LeFlore

    - Angels Byron McLaughlin

    - Rays Dwight Gooden


    - Cowboys Hollywood Henderson

    - Raiders Sebastian Janikowski


    - Penguins Kevin Stevens

    - Sharks Lyndon Byers


    Only Byers played for one of my teams.

    I mostly agree with you in terms of the jerseys, but the classic Bango logo is an A++. I love this friggin guy.



    I tried to take his spirit into a more “aggressive” logo in one of my threads.



    I rather like the green/red and green/orangey tan/Irish rainbow variations.

    I think the new Bucks look is pretty good. Either way I don't see how anyone could hate them. Small-market team with a charismatic young star with a great story, they've drafted well and, eventually, even found a decent coach.

    The whole saga around the new arena, me not having access to a street near my apartment due to construction (I lived in Milwaukee during the construction), and my distaste for the team’s uniforms make me dislike them.

    Why are people pissy about the Bucks, now?

    I think their uniforms look terrible. They need to be green/red, not green/cream/black/light blue. The club needs to repeat the cycle they underwent during Ray Allen’s time there.

  7. Red Sox/White Sox is grandfathered in, so the Stars/North Stars idea is a terrible one. Dallas will never change their name, because they won a :censored:ing Cup with the name.

    I’d go with Minnesota Northern Lights, Minnesota North Lights, or (if we want to keep the logo), Minnesota Ursus (Latin name for bears). The Wild will probably never win the Cup anytime soon, so it can be done by new owners or whoever. That’s the benefit of being mediocre-to-terrible for your entire existence.

    sparky chewbarky got his wish of the Seattle Kraken,


    He’s gonna lady canine about the design not being close to his “brilliance.”

    Prologo got his wish of generic Washington Sports Team merchandise


    It’s burgundy and gold, decidedly less generic than his mess.

    , I'm a terrible CCSLC poster, when do I get to manifest my dreams?

    You’re one of the best on here, dude. You can get your dream of a better Detroit-style pizza than this:



    I love how this pictures gets more awful the longer you stare at it.

    On a positive note, Mike Trout, Jr. (working title) has officially been born.

    Me, a listener of Crime in Sports:




    Naming your kid after yourself is almost always a sure-fire sign things will go downhill for your career.


    Mr. Trout, please give your a kid a name that isn’t Michael or Mike.

    Which is why I understand some fans have an emotional attachment to the name. Doesn’t mean it’s the right name, though.  

    Anaheim is the right name, until they leave Orange County. Sometimes, I think it’s best to let the fans dictate what they want. This is one of those times.

    That was fulfilling a contractual obligation, allowing the Angels to get out of their good naming deal and betray the city of Anaheim, as well as the fans who lived in Orange County.  Nobody liked it, least of all the Angels, but It’s what they had to do as part of Arte's plan to fix something that didn't need fixing.  


    The Anaheim Angels won a World Series. The Los Angeles Angels wasted the prime years of two Hall of Fame talents (Vlad Guerrero and Mike Trout).

    The Jays' powders are the best that team has ever looked.

    Yeah, because powder blue was a team color (well, it was actually turquoise per the official specs, but close enough). I wouldn’t mind a powder blue top as a home alternate, but no powder pants.

  13. Like I said, “Serafines” sounds fantastic. It’s got significance to the lore of angels:



    Referencing seraphim calls to mind the disturbing form of angels described in the Bible.
