    That's interesting, because no NBA teams sell jerseys with ads on them. Those could be knock-offs though-

    Team stores sell them with ads if people really want them

    I forgot about Kansas, yeah they are a bigger Lolcow team then Vanderbilt.

     

    So Vandy and Kansas.. Who else are the big Lolcows of College Football in 2020 (or general for that matter)? I can name a few like UMass and Syracuse. Any other suggestions?

    Kansas and Syracuse are basketball schools, Vanderbilt can’t even say that. UMass recently moved up to FBS so they don’t a history of losing like Vanderbilt.

    Ad patches aren’t that bad. It’s not going to be full blown soccer. They’re ok in the NBA. CFL has had adds for years and it looks fine. They retail jerseys aren’t going to be sold with ads 

    No ads are bad, they are bad in every example you stated and stick out like sore thumbs, and you should feel bad for suggesting such a travesty.

    Part of me wishes Washington’s temporary branding was a bit more old-school. I feel like something similar to the old Senators “W” would’ve been a fine temporary logo, with a wordmark to match of course. I think you could pull off that feel with Futura, perhaps. 

     

    Old Senators “W” I’m referring to:

    Something like that on the helmet instead of numbers looks really good in my head.

    I can see why they didn’t though. It would be to hard to fight copyright for it. Atleast with the current “W” it’s styled enough to where they can fight it and tell the guys selling unofficial merchandise to not use their logo.

    I'm not happy with it--too much black.

    And that logo is horrendous--it's a bald horse --so much could redone with a flaming mane if you want a horse.

    But on the other hand we have the original style as the primaries--so good news that way.

    Then you risk making him look like a punk rock dork with a Mohawk

    I think purple & gold is a criminally underused color scheme in sports, and it would totally translate well for the ravens. However, their “gold” is not a good color for that. If they had Washington’s gold (the school not WFT) I think that would look killer, but as it stands it’s just a bad shade of yellow/gold

    The Vikings already got purple and gold covered for the NFL. And do it much better

    I can only because I consider the Falcons to be the absolute worst uniforms in the NFL and to me, it's not close. The Rams uniforms are very disappointing, however, don't get me wrong.

    Falcons are bad, but atleast it’s only limited to a bad number font, and insisting on every game being monochrome, and just being a disappointment from what we were expecting. Even the gradient alt isn’t that bad. But the rams uniforms don’t have a single aspect to them that are even remotely good.

    I was a guard in a veer offense (at least freshman and sophomore year, I honestly couldn't identify what the hell we were running junior/senior year, even if you showed me), and I remember rather vividly one time I mistook one call for its opposite (for reference, the linemen were numbered, center was 5, and IIRC lower numbers were to his right, higher to his left, RBs ran off that).  It was a trap run going through where I was lined up, and I was supposed to double team with the center, then peel off to the Mike while the other guard pulled.  For some reason, I thought the call was basically its mirror image, so I'd pulled by mistake, and ended up running into the other guard (man, was he pissed).  Naturally, the RB was stuffed immediately.  

    That sounds way too complicated. Our teams o line would talk to eachother who they were blocking as they got to the line for the soul purpose that doesn’t happen. I’m sure it’s different at higher levels where teams will go ok the right guard is blocking this lineman so that means that it’s a run to what ever side but it’s not like the o line was yelling it to they’d just talk to each other and use their own code words.

    They didn't violate the cap. They violated the collective bargaining agreement, which prevents owners from deferring too many payments. It is designed to protect teams from bad owners.

     

     

    Exactly.

    So they broke the rules by deferring payments and violating the salary cap.

    I've never played organized football but I have played a lot of Madden football, especially on Sega Genesis but a little bit on current gen consoles as well.

     

    Stupid but half-serious question: If you can read a Madden playbook in a video game, are you that far removed from being able to do similar on the field?

    As a WR, all you are listening for is what your number is which indicates what route you’re running unless it’s a run play then there will be no numbers, then as a RB and lineman you are listening for which letter indicating what gap you are running. Also the formation you are running precedes everything. The option stuff came about after I graduated high school so I don’t know how that goes.

    To be fair, most of these "college kids" aren't in college due to their intellectual potential, so maybe it did take some of them three years to understand how to run a post pattern.

     

    But yeah - if you're a player, what is so complex about running the plays that you're taught?  Maybe it's a complex system overall, but on any given week, the playbook is relatively limited, so all you need to do as a player is understand the read for any given play and then just run your pattern for that play.

     

    I can't believe that they're up at the line of scrimmage runnin through some complex algorithm "if player X is in position A, then read player Y.  If player Y is in position B, then run pattern lambda, unless player Z is in position C, in which case execute pattern gamma version 1, unless player Z is wearing a wrist band on his left hand, in which case do three cartwheels when the ball is snapped and then fake an end around and then run pattern gamma version 2, but if the defense lineman that's lined up over the right guard seems a little tired, then run a fly pattern regardless of what player X, Y, and Z are doing, but if said DL is wearing black cleats, then cut the fly pattern short and come back to the QB, but solve three calculous problems before cutting off the route.  Here's 10 calculous problems, but the three you need to solve will be based on whether you're reading player X, Y, or Z.   

     

    And that's all just for a planned QB draw!

    Seems easy enough

    Pick a feature. Any one will do. The stupid collar,  The colors, The numbers, the fact it looks more like a nod to The Oregon Trail...Also, the whole stupid idea of this uniform so they can money grab. Money grabbing is what Nike and Oregon do best.

    These jerseys are not available for retail purchase. 

    Now who looks dumb?

    The word "generational" gets thrown around way too much these days.  Can a guy play one full season before being labeled as a once-in-a-generation talent?  Nothing against Joe Burrow, but at this point in his career he's not even in the discussion for top guy, let alone "generational".  

     

    Hell - half the NBA is "generational" - which means none of it is.

     

    It's like how some dopes throw around "iconic" when they really mean "it's a logo that I like."

    While “generational” does get thrown around too much, from the limited amount we saw of burrow I’d say he easily had the potential to be.

    Considering FSU pretty much stole that idea from Washington in the first place, they really wouldn't have much of a leg to stand on.  

     

    (Florida State debuted theirs in '76; Washington kept theirs until '80.)

    Well in the 50 years since it’s debuted for FSU they have established it as their look and trademark, and since the WFT haven’t worn it in a regular capacity in the 50 years since FSU would have a legitimate claim since they changed from the original mark, the colors being similar but reversed, and the application being the same.
