  1. Paul Brown said when George Halas died that he didn’t want a tribute on the uniforms like the Bears had given Halas. Putting his name inside the collar seems to violate that request as is, but not as much as if it appeared on the outside of the jerseys where it’s always visible. It’s sort of a weird thing for a fan to fake so I’m thinking it’s real. I’ve seen hundreds of Bengals concepts and zero have thought to use his signature. The one in the jersey does resemble the top one in your post.
  2. Fair. bad example. This looks better without a number on the shoulders than it would with a number on the shoulders.
  3. Whatdaya work for Lou Lamoriello? Who cares for whatever handful of games if they wore some version of the fisherman? Sports are fun. You're allowed to have fun sometimes. I saw that Barzal goal several times on instagram and I didn't even realize until opening this thread that they were wearing different uniforms. The only people who are going to feel arsed to buy that are the Islanders fans who are jersey completists. Now, if it had been an orange fisherman jersey, which would've been true to the RR concept - yeah you'd get a lot of sticks in the mud who'd hate it, but they'd sell to all those Islanders jerseys completists, but also sell a non-insignificant amount more to people who want something a little kooky. Nobody's going to be inspired by this barely different navy blue sweater.
  4. Oh no. Very real chance you're right and I don't think I'll like it either.
  5. LAUGHABLE. McCaffrey's numbers are the same size as his collar. Just to compare this is what they looked like in 2004 They didn't need them back then either, but if they must have them at least they're at a legible size.
  6. I can go either way, but I've always thought them pretty unnecessary. Alabama and a few other notable college programs seem to get by just fine with clean shoulders and sleeves. Wouldn't a team like the Panthers look better without them? Plus the Bengals have a history of playing without TV numbers.
  7. Why do people keep saying it looks like the Bears? The number font is similar. End of conversation. The Bengals will wear these with tiger stripes on the jerseys, pants, and an orange helmet. There will be no confusion.
  8. Not going to get too excited until I see the whole look on a player, but I like the direction. It's a super hybrid of the 80's unis and the good parts of the 04 uniform. As a fan I'm a fan.
  9. Yeah as much as I loved the uniforms of the 90's I've come around to the mindset that you don't need both the tiger stripes and the tiger logo. And certainly not both plus the number. Pick one (preferably the stripes). The new rule that doesn't require TV numbers opens up possibilities. I'd prefer to have numbers than not, but if there's no TV numbers I won't be upset. I like that the Chargers don't have anything other than the bolt on their new jerseys, but that makes a little more sense since they put the numbers back on the helmets. The worst is the Patriots and their repeating flying elvis. They'd look a lot better if they'd use TV numbers in place of the logo on those jerseys.
  10. There's only so much space on the shoulders in that picture because shoulder pads were enormous back then. That wouldn't be an issue today. There's a very easy solution - Use the late 90's stripes that matched the helmet's striping and size better and then put the numbers on the sleeves. And I think the Bengals should wear black socks with the white pants. It's the best of all worlds.
  11. My in-laws' friends just bough Bengals punter Kevin Huber's house. He needed more space and the house he sold is ridiculous on its own. He is doing very well for himself. Devil's Advocate argument against punter might be that you are the physical embodiment of Giving Up. Your fans never see you in a good moment except for the occasional fake, if it works. Which is why I think the answer is definitely something like this. Major league middle reliever was my first thought as well. I'd even go a step further and be like 11th guy on an NBA bench. Like a defensive specialist. They make stupid money for what they actually do, never play crunch time minutes, and you get floor seats to every game.
  12. The Detroit Red Wings are very very bad. All those years I spent waiting for them to suck, but when they finally do it's with this sad sack group of bearded randos I couldn't care less about. They don't have any hateable characters anymore. It was also such a slow descent into crappiness that watching them be this bad is anti-climactic.
  13. The Red Wings looked like they wanted to do "What if Red Wings in SPACE????'", but chickened out halfway and wound up with whatever this is. Took me a half period to notice that they weren't wearing their usual white striped pants until I saw that Jonathan Bernier was wearing his regular pants. During the game Jody Shelley asked Jeff Rimer if the uniforms reminded him of anything and Rimer said "I was gonna say practice jerseys". Shelly said they looked like Ohio State uniforms and then that's all I could see for the rest of the game.
  14. "Tigers have white stripes on their bellies" is the actual stated rationale behind the white side stripes. That's why I've always called them tiger costumes. I think the best way to do it is to show some restraint. The reason so many concepts feel off is because they want to cram so much tiger stuff into the jerseys and pants. I think the 80's uniforms were the right balance, they let the helmet do the heavy lifting, let that be the star of the show, and used a simpler uniform below it. Just do that and we'll be happy with the new uniforms.
