  1. A few points about Virginia's new logo/unis/etc. 1) I like the updated "V"/sabre shaped logo. I don't understand the controversy of the logo, but not much different than the old one just modernized look. 2) The cavalier secondary logo is good not great or spectacular. I think they worked way too hard to make it look fantastic but in hindsight it may have overdid too much to have that "Wow" factor. 3) The uniforms, OTOH, don't amaze me. The numeric fonts I dislike and the "Virginia" and "Cavaliers" wording looks eerily similar to their state rival Virginia Tech. Why UVA let Nike go that route is beyond me. The basketball uniforms (with fonts, numerical and lettering) they had, was one of the best, if not the best in college hoops, why suddenly ruin it. The football uniforms were good too but now it looks like that made it "too busy" with that update. Overall I give it a C. The logos are good, but they took a step backward with the new unis they have. We'll find out come fall if it changes, but for now I think its a fair grade.
  2. If they replace the blue helmet with a silver one, it would be a knockout!! Well what are they waiting for?!!
  3. I love the new Browns jerseys, they have to be in the Top 5 if not Top 3 uniforms in the NFL. I wouldn't mind buying one of these in the near future (even though I am not a Browns fan). I would love to see them do good on the football field for once. Maybe the classic unis could put a spark to that team, it can't hurt.
  4. Surprised the Colts still use the old template, I thought they would switch to the new Nike VU template, maybe they will once football season approaches.
  5. I maybe in the minority for this, but I would like to see the Colts go back to these, but only in a modern look. Keep the regular helmet as is and add a blue home jersey with the same template. They could look ultra cool, if done right.
  6. And don't forget the mid 70s Spurs silver jerseys. Even though we are talking about a different subject not relating to this.
  7. Sorry but pink even with pink trim just doesn’t look good. They need to go back to the drawing room, referring to UA.
  8. It would have looked terrific anyway regardless of the Super Bowl outcome.
  9. Nah the Falcons unis aren’t ugly, their just boring. If I want to cure my insomnia, I’ll just watch an old Falcons football game with their current set, works all the time.
  10. Hopefully if the Saints wear their white tops, at least they would be smart to wear gold pants or black pants. Maybe they will surprise us by wearing the all white color rush jerseys this weekend. Anything but white/stripeless white.
  11. And so do the Falcons, they need to stop living in 2003. An overhaul would do wonders.
  12. If the Panthers insist on white pants, then switch to a white helmet and scrap silver altogether. They have too many colors (black, blue, silver, and white) for their uni combos.
  13. I was thinking 2021. However they should leave the current set alone, but scrap the white pants altogether and just have silver and black pants. I also believe they should use the blue jersey as the primary home uni and have the black jersey as an alternate. Otherwise, leave it untouched. I would love the Panthers use the silver pants with the white jersey to match the silver helmet. Surprised they have only done it just ONCE in their franchise history. Looks a whole lot better than the white/white combo with the silver helmet. I'm all for it!!
  14. I just want to see to go to the Lombardi era jerseys, or maybe the pre 1997 jerseys with bigger sleeve stripes. They cannot make a solid throwback even if they tried their hardest.
  15. And I wish the Ravens have them as primary home uniforms. Nothing against their current ones, but I like to see them updated as their look full time. They are really neat IMO.
  16. Just odd and strange that the Vikes wearing white jerseys to the Cowboys blue jerseys. I must be living in a Twilight Zone.
  17. Sure but they get a saving grace when they lose a pivotal game wearing the white jerseys. But when they lose with the blue jerseys, it’s headline news!!
  18. The Giants WCR looks good, but they may also be cursed. Now 0-4 since they brought them a few years ago, with the results being one sided. I suggest they should go the way opposite of the Rams and replace the current away set with the WCR throwback set but for road games only. With perhaps a new home set in a couple years, an updated 1980-99 version. OTOH, I still miss the days of the old 2000-04 away unis, that was one of their best looks if not the best. Perfect blend of red and blue trim and the gray pants popped out more. Their current away look is okay but it just doesn’t excite me.
  19. An NFL first: The Cowboys will be wearing blue unis against the Vikings for the first time EVER at HOME nonetheless. Going to be very awkward and an eyesore to see the Vikes wear white against Dallas since it usually purple against the Cowboys white whether the game is in Dallas or Minneapolis.
  20. I wish Virginia would have orange pants in their uniform guideline. They would look a lot better with the road whites or home navies. Would add more oomph to their look. Not a fan of their mono navy or mono white it doesn't look bad, but it just looks stale after awhile. Hopefully, next season they will add orange pants to their repertoire.
  21. After they got humiliated in Super Bowl 4, I doubt that is happening. Besides the Vikes front office love the purple pants with the white away jerseys, they can’t live without them.
  22. I don’t. Cowboys never look good with the white jersey CR or not. These look like glorified practice jerseys IMO.
  23. BTW: Kansas State has new basketball uniforms. I like them!!
  24. I’d like to see the Giants use their CR white unis as their permanent road unis, and not for a random home game. Blue should always be their color jerseys at home. Maybe 1-2 games with their current road unis tops. I would like to see the Ravens use the purple CR jerseys as their primary home jersey as well. They are nicer than the current ones. Plus I know it’s an unpopular opinion, but I wish they get rid of the black jerseys. I’m not a fan of them, purple looks a whole lot better.
