  1. Same thing happened with the Denver Broncos. Pre-'78 the Broncos were a redder shade of orange. The team's success in '77 led to a higher demand for Broncos fan gear, and apparel companies complained that they couldn't match that shade. The Broncos switched to orange-orange in '78. The fame of the "Orange Crush" nickname was also an incentive. Per a newspaper article from the Evening Independent (St. Petersburg, FL) from '78.
  2. Based on what? The Rockies had been playing in purple pinstripes for at least 2 or 3 seasons before Arizona announced their identity. The fact that they chose to straight up copy a division and regional rival was bizarre. The Rockies had more of a right to be annoyed.
  3. Plus, it would look less like a "C".
  4. Glad they're ditching the navy facemasks when wearing powder blue jerseys. That always looked really mismatched.
  5. That look is also referred to as the leotard look, which never made sense as a leotard typically doesn't even have legs. The appropriate word is "tights".
  6. I like Herons the best. Pioneers is cool, but there's an issue with it. Cascades is cool but naming a team after a mountain range is pretty unique and that uniqueness has been used up the the Rockies. A bird name is more of a standard naming convention so it doesn't stick out as a copycat name as much.
  7. That's pretty much the Broncos uniform I dream of. Tremendous.
  8. Looks like I semi-called it. Heaps of praise not necessary, just throw money.
  9. Cowboys stadium also throws some terrible sun glare/shadows on the field..
  10. "Kit" isn't really a soccer thing as much as it is a British thing. Rugby uniforms and the like are also referred to as kits, generally meaning uniform or equipment. Of course Americans and Canadians are most likely to hear it in reference to soccer uniforms, as it is a term that has made its way into the soccer lexicon in North America. The word "strip" is also used interchangeably in this context. I think "kit" can also refer to clothing generally, as the phrase "get your kit off" means take off your clothes. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, as I am not British.
