  1. If they're not selling them anyway, using team uniforms is a great idea. The 1998 ASG has had a lot of airtime lately due to the Kobe v Jordan factor, and it's such a cool look. One team in white, one team in colour. Then to satisfy Nike they can sell a bunch of already made uniforms with an allstar patch for $20 more. Everybody wins.
  2. I love the alternate jerseys in the NBA because it means the team I support can have a wonderful long term identity that I can be proud of and also release a fresh and interesting jersey every year or two to keep things interesting visually. I don't want the Spurs to change their jerseys dramatically at all, but I love that I can now buy a fiesta jersey. I already have several classic home and road Spurs jerseys, something new is great. I know this forum is very conservative with teams wearing their classic looks and their classic looks only, but I feel like this is the best of both worlds. Think of alt uniforms as an outlet for teams to go a bit nuts with design so they aren't tempted to change a classic look to keep things interesting and sell some merchandise. I also like colour on colour matchups, which are probably the best outcome of the current uniform paradigm.
  3. The Spurs have knocked this out of the park. It was worth waiting years with the boring camo unis. Does that MINN jersey have stars on both side panels or just one?
  4. I think the championship banner jersey is a great concept for a franchise like Boston. I think OKC looks pretty good with the NASCAR style. It's a totally different aesthetic to the Braves jerseys. I'll need to see Miami's on court, but I don't mind it. If it looks dull it'll look garbage. A design like that really needs to be bright. It'll probably be popular as a replica.
  5. The Spurs home and roads are a classic look that shouldn't be messed with, but this fiesta uniform is the best they've ever looked.
  6. I'm guessing Milk Mommies was quietly dropped after the Washington Football Team tapped them on the shoulder and paid them an undisclosed sum.
  7. The Sydney Opera House is a publicly owned building, but for some reason the government have allowed the Opera House trust responsible for the running of the building to enforce this licencing issue, which is just garbage. The Opera House is arguably Australia's most famous monument. It certainly is for Sydney. I completely disagree with how this has been handled, and it's not only the Swans. A few other Sydney based sports teams, like the NRL Sydney Roosters and A-League Sydney FC have had the same issue. I don't really mind the Swan, but it's a big downgrade. The aesthetic has gone from upmarket and timeless to bush league. The overall style has totally changed and it doesn't have the same feeling of history and class. @Gothamite shared my exact feelings about the choice to use just a head. To get it to read as a swan they've had to include a pronounced face ballsack when just showing the neck would have done that in a much better way.
  8. I thought the same thing about the back, but I think the side stripes on the shorts will give it enough from behind. I definitely think being conservative with the amount of fiesta colours on the uniform as a whole was a smart move.
  9. What is head and shoulders above this on the all time worst jersey list? I absolutely hate it. I can usually make a case for just about anything, but not this. There are plenty of awful jerseys but this is definitely in the conversation.
  10. Jesus Christ the Knicks. What the hell were they thinking? Worst NBA Jersey ever?
  11. This isn't better than the best fiesta concepts I've seen, but it's very good! Love that San Antonio script with the spur over the I. The fiesta colours work brilliantly with a black base.
  12. I don't think there has been an official announcement other than last year saying that it was the final year of camo. However the Spurs have been teasing fiesta colours so hard on social media for like 12 months (with countless comments on every such post demanding fiesta jerseys) that it would amount to trolling the fanbase if they were to go in another direction now. I can't envisage anything else. Just hope they get it right.
  13. Surely Twitter would have something in it's terms and conditions allowing it to simply change usernames at a whim if it was clear account squatting was taking place. I know Instagram changed the handle of a Reading FC supporter living in Sussex so they could give the @sussexroyal handle to Harry and Meghan - without even telling him first. I think he ended up with @_sussexroyal_
  14. I'd bet my house on Spurs fiesta uniforms. The team's social media has regularly referenced fiesta colours in the last 6 months, followed by hundreds of fan comments demanding fiesta uniforms. Hopefully it's black based.
  15. God this is ridiculous. Have we ever seen anything like 2 different fonts in one number before? Teams should be required to hire at least 1 uniform nerd to approve all uniforms prior to a photoshoot like this.
