  1. Maybe they think different colored pants will be enough for colorblind people to figure out, or they jut don't really care.

    I honestly don't care. There's no way that colorblind people had NO idea what was going on in the Jets Bills game with announcers guiding them through.
    What a poor comment. You're telling me that all of the complaints were invalid? What about this matchup was visually distinct? Two teams wearing solid dark colors from head to toe (both of which are the key colors for this common deficiency), with the same color helmets, and without any contrasting pants or socks. Color blindness is a real thing and yes, this was a royal pain to watch. Couldn't even do it, had to turn it off. And no, I'm not "black and white" color blind. I can tell that the Bills are red and the Jets green. But when the players are moving so fast and smacking each other at the line of scrimmage, it was damn near impossible to distinguish the two. As to your comment about the announcers guiding the watchers, well, we shouldn't have to rely on that. Not how football should have to be watched in the age of HD television. I'm all for color-on-color, but do it when it makes sense with distinct matchups like the Raiders in black versus the Titans in powder blue. This game was a legitimate problem.

    This is what the game looked like to colorblind people. And they had to watch it from farther away than this. I just hope none of the players were colorblind.


  2. USC Interim coach Clay Helton gets named permanent head coach by AD Pat Haden, per Twitter. Honestly I think this is a good decision. Helton beat UCLA, somehow won the South Division, and went 5-2 in his term. I wasn't sure this would happen with the news that Les Miles would probably be fired, but now that he's not an option I'm not surprised.

    On the subject of the playoff, I think the committee has it easy. Clemson, Alabama, and Oklahoma, barring any upsets, are locks. The Big Ten champion makes it in. That's all there is to it.


  3. Washington State looks like crap. All white. Should have worn a traditional look against the Huskies. Washington's helmets look to be the normal non-anodized gold, and look great.

    Yeah, I'd agree about WSU. The Huskies, though, look great in those non-satin helmets. Just wish they had purple facemasks instead of black!

    The facemasks are purple. Taken from today's game:

    Interesting picture. I saw today Mickens reverted to the number 4 he had worn previously for senior day. I wonder if he came out wearing number 1 for pregame then switched it up for the game. This is the only picture I could find on Getty but both have to be from today based on the helmet.

    Yeah, I noticed that about Mickens. For Senior Day, it seems appropriate. The facemask looks black to me, but I can see in that upper picture that it's clearly purple. It's just a really dark purple.

  5. I love what Washington is doing wearing their practice helmets. It will be nice to see the regular gold instead of the newer satin gold theybhave been wearing, too.

    Yeah, the satin has been wearing on me lately. I'd like to see the classic gold instead of the satin.

    But still, great to see them going traditional for the Apple Cup.


  6. Dallas: I really like this look. You executed the colors perfectly and got rid of the inconsistency.

    Denver: Not bad, but I feel like it's a little generic.

    Detroit: I was going to say no blue pants until I realized what an all-grey would look like. The Lions are fine.

    Green Bay: Perfect. Nice job getting the throwback right too.


  7. Why didnt the idiots at Nike contact you when they had the idea initially.

    I'd only make one improvement to the NFC North. The packers numbers should be white with a yellow outline. Other than that. Flawless

    For the sake of the color rush, I disagree with that. Keep the Packers numbers as they are.

    I agree with the others, these are just throwbacks. Make them a bit more modern. Drop the grey facemasks. Add something different to them. Maybe try changing up the stripe colors on some of these. Just try being a bit more creative. Specifically, add something in between the stripes that are single colored. Or maybe make them taper in some way or use them differently.


  8. Do you happen to have that pennant thing. Blank

    Do you have anything to say besides that? Can't you at least offer some C&C? And I don't mean "looks great" or "nice job". Save your template requests for PMs. They should not be here.

    George County looks fine, but neither Greyhounds alternate looks right to me. Also, I think your numbers look too big on both.
