  1. The brown facemasks look about as bad as I expected them to look in live game action. The brown facemasks seriously detract from the whole retro/classic look the Browns are trying to achieve. They make the helmets look dull and boring in the same way that black for black's sake facemasks do. IMO white or gray make the entire helmet pop more.
  2. Agreed. Losing the North Stars brand is a tragedy akin to Houston losing the Oilers brand (and the best uniforms in NFL history) for a boring, nondescript "Titans" brand name.
  3. I don't hate the Rams uniforms. I love the shade of blue they chose. But, I'm looking forward to them changing uniforms again in 5 years. Hopefully the horn resembles the old school yellow one.
  4. Really hoping the Washington NFL Team goes with Redwolves as their name. They're native to the DC, Maryland, Virginia area. The uniform possibilities have alot of potential. And could you imagine an entire crowd howling like wolves? That would be amazing.
  5. Love the name. Love the uniform. Kudos to the new Seattle NHL franchise.
  6. I respect your opinions here but, I still disagree. I still don't see a problem with them and as a matter of fact I like them. IMO They look good and they give off a sense of tradition and affection for the past that I really like. I have worn New Era Caps nearly every single day for 30+ years. Personally, I like the look of pinstriped caps on my cabeza.
  7. I don't see a problem with white hats with pinstripes. It's a traditional look that was worn during the early days of MLB.
  8. One step closer to the four major American professional sports leagues being outfitted like NASCAR drivers and MLS players. Is nothing sacred? When and where does the greed end? These leagues are making money hand over fist. And now they need uniform advertisements too? The greed will just keep perpetuating until like I said above, MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL players are dressed like they belong in NASCAR or MLS. If any league should be sacred here, it should be MLB. The oldest and most tradition-based sport in the USA is selling it's soul even further.
  9. "In a vacuum" is easily the most overused phrase on these sportslogos.net boards and I'm starting to believe in society in general.
  10. Because that would be boring as all hell? I know alot of folks here have a big problem with the number font. But I think the font is unique and beautiful in the same ways as the Steelers and Bears are. Just remove the gradient.
  11. I keep going back and analyzing this new Rams uniform set over and over again because I'm supposed to hate them. Look at my list of favorite uniforms under my screen name. All traditional. All classic. All iconic. This new Rams set is everything I'm supposed to hate. I review the pictures over and over again telling myself, "Everyone else hates these. Why don't I?" But for various reasons which I've already outlined in this thread, I actually like it. Especially if the Rams use some of the really nice mix and match possibilities. Bone over blue and Bone over yellow would probably look really good IMO.
  12. I think the helmet is near perfect. The shade of blue is gorgeous. The horn is great too IMO. I know there are some who see it as two separate things. To those same people, it looks like a moon crescent. But, if you look at it, I mean really look at it, you'll see what it's trying to do. I love the classic Ram horn. but, instead of being a 2D curl, its a textured Ram horn that has the trademark ridge on it. It looks alot more like a realistic ram horn than the old one did.
  13. The bone away uniform would be better with blue replacing all of the yellow on the jersey and pants and a bone colored horn decal on the helmet rather than yellow. With that said, I really like the helmet alot. The segmented parts are meant to give the horn a 3D layered effect like a real ram horn.
  14. Looking these sets again and here are my thoughts. Keep in mind that I'm a purist who thinks all teams should be wearing throwbacks. So for me to like anything about these is a miracle. Really like: * The shade of blue *Helmet (segmented horn and all) * Number font * Home monochrome (I normally HATE monochrome but it works with this shade of blue) *Home blue over yellow Dislikes: *Gradient numbers * Bone colored away uniforms. The away set would be a little better with a blue stripe on the pants rather than yellow. IMHO The Rams new uniforms ARE NOT the absolute train wreck that the Jaguars gradient helmet set, the Buccaneers alarm clock set, and the new Falcons set were/are. They're certainly not as horrible as some of the posts in this thread are hyperbolizing. IMO these Rams new uniforms are light years less radical than the Broncos chess piece and Patriots flying Elvis uniform redesigns from way back in the 1990s and those two sets are beloved.
  15. The design choices are ultimately up to the franchise and not Nike. It all depends on whether the team entirely hands over the keys to Nike or not. Hopefully Eagles ownership is smarter than that.
