  1. Current Diamondbacks color scheme - replace dark grey with turquoise for road uniform. Cause riots for second time in under a decade.
  2. Oh, man. Yellow over beige would be barf-worthy.
  3. I can see that point, although I'd love to see the L.A. Rams in yellow over white. As far as baseball goes, didn't Oakland wear yellow over yellow as their main road outfit back in the '70s? Not saying the Padres would or should, but there is a modicum of precedent.
  4. They must've come to an agreement regarding the copyright issues surrounding the OG Coogi jerseys.
  5. Brown uniforms weren't historically popular with Padres players. Tony Gwynn referred to the color of one set as "baby poop brown". Machado probably just wanted to be sure it didn't look like crap (pun intended).
  6. Someone should ask 103-year-old Olivia de Havilland whether it makes sense to base the design of a sports logo off a poster for a movie she was in as a teen.
  7. Nein! The black socks were the one weakness of the 1997-2013 set, IMO, because everywhere else, black was just a trim color. Likewise, it is mostly just outlines here. Let's keep it that way.
  8. Haven't you heard? Contrast is out. Pajamas are in. Pass the word.
  9. Not to mention that the black outline is needed for the orange in the pant stripes to really show off its fiery "glow" effect, which for me personally was one of the best parts of a very strong uniform set and overall visual brand.
  10. Unfortunately, based on what I've read on here, the new fabrics don't come with a glossy/shiny/metallic finish. That's consistent across manufacturers, sadly. The Cowboys and Raiders have both decided that shiny pants are important enough to their identity to use the old fabric and outsource the production to someone besides Nike. Everyone else just wears matte pants. Incidentally, the Cowboys have been pretty good the past few years with dazzle pants, while the Raiders were already bad and haven't gotten any worse since the other teams switched to the new fabric. This makes me highly doubt the Nike-speak about the importance of the new materials.
