  1. I would not advocate for a memorial patch, but if they did I would hope it would be a black armband at most. I really don’t want to see a Covid-19 patch or ribbon.
  2. This one starts with Houston:
  3. This is more of a non-story than anything since this mascot is unlikely to become official. In fact, the university has a panel looking into Native American imagery. https://www.news-gazette.com/news/after-the-vote-no-plans-to-choose-mascot-now-ui/article_f73b9496-6146-5b5b-8e7f-3e6fb6b1c432.html As someone who lives in Champaign-Urbana, the Chief Illiniwek debate is one that refuses to die. Older fans have yet to and likely will never accept the NCAA ban, and I do not think the university will choose a new mascot because they fear the backlash. Being told how “respectful” a white kid from suburban Chicago dressed up as an inaccurate depiction of a Native American Chief really is gives you a lesson of how clueless a person can really be. Chief Illiniwek has been gone for 15 years, and it’ll probably be 15 more before the university no longer fears the alumni and fan response to a new mascot. FWIW, I kinda liked the Alma Otter idea from last year.
  4. Blending eras like this really ticks me off, but since it features powder blue and Stan the Man it is probably the best selling Cardinals t-shirt out there. This is not a swipe at Nike because Majestic sold the same shirt.
  5. Tell me about it. I like the new dugout jackets and have been waiting for the Cardinals version to go up. It would be nice to have during the spring when wearing a jacket is the norm.
  6. Is the patchwork rollout of things normal when a uniform supplier changes? Just strikes me as weird that Nike has released items for some teams, and is slowly releasing others.
  7. Finally came across the Dodgers 2018 ring. The face is very similar to the 2017 ring, and the Dodgers had little fanfare around the 2018 ring.
  8. Are there any Astros fans that can give us insight into what the expected fan response will be in Houston? Is attendance expected to decrease?
  9. eBay has been good to me lately. USA made NWT FOR $20
  10. So I engaged in a conversation regarding the LS kits on another widely popular website that is not specific to the content discussed here. This person told me they contacted LAFC directly in regards to being able to purchase an authentic LS shirt. They were told that Adidas will only be making replica LS available for purchase. Sure enough, World Soccer Shop has replica LS shirts for sale. Has anyone else heard this? Edit: I don’t know if all clubs have a LS shirt for sale, but LAFC does.
  11. Fanatics is selling authentics with league patches.
  12. I think Seattle would look best in orange.
  13. Red shorts being worn today:
  14. DCU’s red shorts back in play?
  15. Picked up one of these barely worn off eBay for $15. I’ve always thought it would make a good Sunday home cap.
  16. I’ve got a solution for the black alt- ditch it. I don’t mind the use of the color black, but it’s use has been the one constant and largest negative in the franchise’s uniform history. The color black completely pushed out both teal and orange colored uniform options. Now this team has adopted a great shade of blue, and it is being lost in the overuse of the color black. There is so much potential and the Marlins are making the same mistakes for a 3rd time.
  17. The shorter play clock is a noticeable positive game changer. I’ve only watched the 4th of NY/TB, but I like what I saw. I hope the XFL is successful. I think there’s a place for this league in the current sports landscape.
  18. I can tell you that they aren’t still in St. Louis https://www.espn.com/blog/st-louis-rams/post/_/id/26031/rams-banners-removed-from-edward-jones-dome Since the Rams have been playing at the Coliseum, I could see them not having banners up with the stadium belonging to USC and not intended to be long-term home of the Rams.
  19. I’m not saying you’re wrong, but I would expect that a global brand like Adidas would be able to accommodate a rebranding without a lot of notice.
  20. WAIT, these kits lack the over the shoulder stripes.
  21. FWIW, FC Dallas might be my favorite change just because I can’t stand that bib look on jerseys. Huge upgrade. I fall more on the positive side. Yes the template is bad, but Adidas is not the only company guilty of this (looking at you New Balance and Liverpool). I can live with most of these. My negatives: The shirt sponsor gets lost wit the Sounders, Nashville is giving me Lakers vibes as that blue looks very purple to me in the pic, and I understand why Cincy fans aren’t pleased. I also dream about how much better LAFC would look if it was just YouTube. Adding TV makes the sponsor logo too long IMO. I know it’s a separate service, but it’s just enough to throw off the look for me.
  22. Chicago’s new logo is so bad, even MLS doesn’t want to be associated with it. They Fire did release a short reveal video:
  23. Red shorts might be a part of DC United’s new kit too.
  24. I miss the days when Nike made great baseball caps. The former product was just as good as anything New Era produced. Such a shame.
