  1. FWIW, a local Marlins beat reporter says the team is aware of the feedback regarding the visibility issues of the black on black jerseys but he hasn't heard anything about them giving in to any changes just yet. I doubt any changes happen in 2020 but, contrary to popular opinion, this new ownership has been more open to fan feedback than the previous knuckleheads so maybe if there's enough feedback on this then a tweak does eventually happen.
  2. He was still just one person with one opinion. It's ok to disagree with Tony on this.
  3. It's such a minor thing but I think the Kelly blends in with the grass too much. The darker forest green looks way better against the grass background.
  4. I have several immediate thoughts when I read this... 1. Were the uniforms really even finalized back then? He might not have seen more than unfinalized prototypes. 2. What's wrong with this guy thinking about uniforms in his decision making process when he's potentially about to set up his family and his future grandkids financially for life? 3. How awesome is it that this guy is thinking about uniforms in his decision making process when he's potentially about to set up his family and his future grandkids financially for life??? Maybe Manny is a little bit of a uniform junkie like most of us? That's a cool thought.
  5. Eh, the Kelly Green alternate is great but I'd only approve of it here if their home uniform wasn't already so great. Or maybe if they were the road team and wore this alternate. Home game, one game playoff, with home uniforms that great and classic? Stick to the home whites.
  6. Yeah I have no memory of this but it's great...
  7. Just my guess but I think the Rays yellow is just new graphics for social media. I've seen plenty of teams whose social media varies the color schemes quite a bit but it never translates to any uniform or other color changes. The social media people just seem to be more willing to try different takes on the color schemes.
  8. Eat healthier and you'll notice the difference in color.
  9. Yea this is true too... the Dolphins thing was literally just a timely joke.
  10. Why wouldn't they though? It's not the NFL (the top/most famous league despite it's faults and no matter if anyone likes it or not) and the previous XFL was such a disaster that how can anyone look at this updated XFL as anything but inferior until they prove otherwise both on and off the field?
  11. I guess the White Sox have never described it as a fauxback but someone on here used the word fauxback the other day and I was just floored that a team from 1900 would bother with a fauxback but as Gothamite says I think it does still fit the definition of a fauxback even if it isn't as obvious as what the Rays did.
  12. The Marlins did this several times in the old stadium and the Dolphins also played football over the baseball field as well...
  13. The White Sox and that new faux back wordmark. Sorry, caught up with the weekend posts this morning and sometimes forget that what I'm reading is past people's short term memory of conversations here.
  14. Why would a team established in the year 1900 create a fauxback? I got it and appreciated it for what it was when the Rays, established in 1998, put out a 70's/80's style fauxback... that was fun and creative and generally well done and was never overused either. But a team that has over 100 years of history has no business creating fake throwbacks, there's no need for it considering how many real throwback options they do have.
