    Stanford looks awful with the white outline around their numbers now. That’s probably one of my votes for biggest downgrade of the year. 

    They never should of added the black outline to the home and away uniforms either.

    I was hoping by traditional, that included silver helmets. I'd like to see those again. 

     

    I believe Wazzu's actual school colors are Crimson and Gray, so it is technically traditional.

    Do players wear socks at all in college these days?  I’m used to bare lower legs there. 

    Certain schools still mandate it as part of the uniform. Michigan is one I can recall off the top of my head. Even though a few guys will roll them down as the game goes on.

    Guess you'll be waiting a while, I don't think teams are going to stick to 2 uniforms all season long for quite a while in this era of bold/colorful social media campaigns and younger targeting demographics.

    Where did I say anything about teams sticking to 2 uniforms? I have no problem with throwbacks, or alternate uniforms if they look good. I just despise these ugly 90s uniforms and said I can't wait for the trend to be over.  


  5. I cannot wait until throwing back to these ugly, cartoon, 90s uniforms goes away for the league. We get it kids you like wearing throwback 90s jerseys to music festivals, please don't make us look at them on the court.

    Love that they kept the red chin straps. 

     

    Is there a reason no NFL does this? I'm assuming it isn't allowed?


    NFL is white chinstraps only. I know Chad Johnson wore a black one before and maybe even a orange one. He obviously got fined.

    I miss the Vsr4, such a clean classic look. Why do all these new helmets have to look so wonky. The viscis and Air xp are the only ones that look decent.

    The VSR4 definitely looked the best. I have always hated how the original Revolution looked, The Revo Speed grew on me and the Speedflex actually looks good to me, but nothing will top the VSR4 and the facemasks that players wore with it, even if the Schutt Air lines use the same facemasks they looked better on the VSR4.

    Fiesta was garbage whose time has passed. The Spurs realized that it was stupid to not brand around the beautiful simplicity of black/silver/white, especially given the spartan nature of their organizational culture. 

     

    People want it back because they’re not fans or they simply love ‘90s stuff uncritically. Unique doesn’t equal good.

    "Unique doesn't equal good." This right here is a motto I live by. I can't agree more with that statement. If anybody wants teal Pistons or fiesta Spurs so bad they can go play NBA Live 98.

    With Thunder moving to the blue uniform and Oklahoma City moving to the white uniform, is it safe to assume they plan on wearing blue at home more often than white now?  I'm just basing this off of teams usually having their city name on their away uniform (more so in baseball, but still)  

    That was my first thought. I wouldn't doubt if we barley see the whites this year.

    Well said. The classic home and away jerseys are as good as ever. I don't think those will be changing any time soon - if they were going to do so, 2017 would have been the logical time to do it with the change to Nike and the move to a new arena. All that happened then was the new logo (a good one IMO) and the reversal of the blue and red stripes on the side panels on the home jersey. Other than that, they've essentially been the same for nearly 20 years at this point.

     

    The downside is that their alternates have been a hot mess since the red one was discontinued in 2008. I'll never understand their continued insistence on navy, gray, and black; and the damn "Motor City" thing has been beat into the ground. Overall, a few tweaks and their identity would be perfection for me as a Pistons fan. Now, if only their basketball operations management could ever regain some competency..

    I couldn't agree with you more on everything, especially the basketball operations side. The alternates have been terrible. I want them to reintroduce the red badly, I would also love if the brought back the lightning bolt throwback or even had a bad boys throwback.

    Any chance these comeback this year??! 🙏

    No, never, I am a pistons fan who regularly tries to attend games, and I can’t tell you how upset I’d be to walk into the arena and see them wearing these. The Pistons, the bad boys, the goin’ to work squad are red, white, and blue. I know people complain and say there are too many RWB teams in the league, well they can change, the pistons are one of the NBAs oldest franchises starting in 1941, in Fort Wayne, before the NBA was a league. One of the best things I have seen on Twitter was when Ben wallace said how ugly those uniforms were and he wore them. https://mobile.twitter.com/fear_dafro/status/981236543926030337

     

    I also want to add that Pistons players have been seen wearing them in the offseason or hanging around the facility wearing these the past few years. I’m sure they are Mitchell and ness shorts that the team has and the players take.

    And the Cowboys, also founded in 1960, but as we all know, is an OG NFL Team.

     

    Since they can’t wear their White Helmet Throwbacks, I would like to see the Cowboys Wear their Silver Pants with the Color Rush Jersey to make a 1994/95 Throwback. Kinda how like the Raiders now wear Silver Pants with their Color Rush for a 1964 Throwback.

    This is true, but I believe the Cowboys did their 50 year anniversary in 2010 so I'd assume they'll be doing their 60 year anniversary next season.

    Shouldn't the entire AFC West have an anniversary logo? They were all founded the same year, right?

    Along with the Pats, Bills, Jets, Titans/Oilers.

    Shame they took down their old stadium. Could join the Mac with UMass for football only and cut expenses to the bone. 

    UMass hasn't been in the MAC since 2015, I'm pretty sure they're Independent.

    According to this, the Chargers are going to wear a blue facemask with the blue jersey. That's weak. It's also interesting to see the Patriots throwback is still listed.

    They mentioned they were going to use the gold facemask with the powder blue, white and color rush when they made the change, so it was assumed they would keep the navy facemask with the navy jersey. https://www.chargers.com/news/iconic-powder-blue-to-serve-as-chargers-primary-jersey-in-2019

     Make the facemask either brown or white 😉

    I'll be honest when their current uniforms came out I hated the idea of them having a brown facemask. But it has truly grown on me and it is probably the only thing from the current set I wouldn't mind keeping. I really wouldn't be mad if they went brown, gray or white. And I am a proud member of the gray facemask club.

    These uniforms are from the 1930's. It would've been cooler to wear them against teams that were around during that time.

    You mean like their 2 division rivals that have colored throwback uniforms to contrast their white throwbacks, that makes way too much sense. I understand they want to wear them at home and they open the NFL's 100th season at home against GB, again that makes way too much sense. Also if they aren't going to wear them when they visit Detroit for Thanksgiving then wear them when Detroit visits earlier in the year and get the Lions on board to bring their throwbacks.

    So "Two Alternates: 1 Throwback, 1 Color Rush" is out? I knew the Color Rush could be a throwback...but even the 49ers wore all white socks last year with the throwback (so it would effectively be a Color Rush) 

     

    Apologies in advance if I missed that change.

    The Bears and Chiefs used striped socks with their color rush uniforms., so id imagine the dolphins could just use white socks with stripes on them.

    Technology won’t solve the crisis.  Only new rules can.  

    While it still isn't proven and is being tested. This Q-Collar that Luke Keuchley and Vernon Davis have been wearing might help cushion the brain while striking the inside of the skull. The thought behind it makes sense, hopefully this ends up being able to help prevent, or at least reduce the risk of concussions. http://q30innovations.com/q-collar/

    There seems to be a lot of smoke for the Jaguars to potentially see a throwback alternate this season. Mitchell & Ness is now dropping this -- 
     

     

    Hell yes. Hopefully Nike would not include that side panel though. Oof.

     

     

    I realize these are just for retail, and I don't buy jerseys. Do they really have to use the black stripe 1997 one for McCardell though? They only used it for one season, and the ones without that stupid, unnecessary black stripe look way better.
