  1. Wow. That is so gorgeous ... ethereal gorgeous, my knees get weak. Green is my favorite color, but that goes beyond personal preferences Lots of guys here are professionals, let me throw this question out: I suspect the lighting and photo quality affected my reaction to that pic. My question is how greatly can equipment distort or misrepresent or over-enhance colors and images? By equipment I mean video card, monitor, camera, lighting. I bought a Viewsonic "Pro Series" monitor awhile back partly because it hyped its color "accuracy," etc., and although I know most ALL video cards have evolved WAY beyond what 90% of consumers need, I still buy a pretty decent one every 4-5 years. Why?
  2. Not sure if this is 'Brand" criticism or 'Identity' criticism, but these two: 1. L.A. Lakers - The franchise moved to Los Angeles in 1961 from Minnesota - land of 10,000 lakes. L.A. kept the name, the Lakers brand, despite the fact there are NO natural lakes of any note there (Silver Lake is a man-made reservoir). Nothing more than a handful of artificial aqueducts, rivers and reservoirs built to provide fresh water to residents of its desert climate. 2. Utah Jazz - The franchise moved to Salt Lake City in 1979 from New Orleans - the cradle of jazz music. Utah kept the name, the Jazz brand, despite the fact the culture there is the furthest thing from "jazzy." The radio industry has long considered the SLC market as "the place where alternative formats go to die." Tastes have expanded as the years have passed, but in the 70s the market couldn't support more than one country music radio station, much less a Jazz one.
  3. Even in his 50s and 60s, this was just wrong.
  4. Agreed. Add LSU (purple jersey/gold pants), and Florida State. I wouldn't submit my school for best uniforms, but our logo has gotta be Top 10 at least. Throw in Top 10 stadium and Top 3 mascot, and I can live with the uniforms.
  5. SWEET SUCCESS! Audacious is the word. Acknowledging their history without derailing their present. I wouldda been good without the royal-blurple Color Rush - The navy CR is bad enough to the bone. The player's numbers on their helmets is a bold choice. Like the jersey numbers tough, a sharper font wouldda been a lot better. Helmet numbers should be slimmer, and navy blue.. This is the typeface on their 1960s helmets, The numbers were black. f
  6. Another reason the Yankees pinstripes work is their SOLID DARK NAVY LOGO. Never a problem reading that one .... meanwhile the Rockies' ridiculous outlined letters are one of the worst uniform design flaws I can think of. They couldn't even fill in the letters with a deep gray or silver, sad. But PURPLE. Are there any pro or college teams that actually wear true purple? Equal red and blue mix? I don't think so ... every "purple" is 2-to-1 or 3-to-1 mix blue over red. The Ravens, Vikings, Lakers, Suns, Raptors, LA Kings, Kansas State, Washington, Northwestern, Texas Christian, even East Carolina - NONE are even very close to true 50-50 blue-red PURPLE. Even BROWN has the Padres, Browns and Wyoming Cowboys.
  7. Okay yes ... visual flow being in some measure related to whether two specific colors blend, and complement? Definitely, I think even a slight alteration of a color can make or break a blend. A more subtle example the Buccaneers' new slightly darker red compared with their previous brighter red, and how each blends/flows with the pewter. Recently there was talk about the merits of adding gray to the Colts royal blue, and though I didn't post about it, I thought it was all about WHAT gray. For example, this Kentucky pic seems an abomination of a color relationship - its impossible to appreciate this blue with that dull near-charcoal gray. But another gray might work. Can't agree with you that the brighter Chargers colors are an era-specific style though. In fact - though I probably shouldn't admit this - the new Chargers duds are my favorite current uniforms.
  8. What do you mean the darker green "fares much better?" I know the darker green has taken a decisive lead in popularity these past few pages. Infrared correctly said there's no correct or proper choices, they're all subjective. True on true, because for me this throwback green is ambrosial ... I used a "dive in and swim around in the gorgeous color" imagery to describe the same feeling I get seeing these particular Chargers' colors. (I say "these particular" because it doesn't happen for every 60s Chargers pic. And that raises the issue of what effect camera equipment and image rendering has on what we see).
  9. The Colts named it "facemask gray?" That is funny.
  10. Well, not an actual lawsuit. Other than logos, and a fast-dwindling number of never-before used numeral fonts, nothing is unique anymore, nothing. Even the 'no-white-anywhere' feature of those unis. In fact, that's a time-honored element of the hyper-traditional USC Trojans and Michigan Wolverines.
  11. Yeah, not every CR was bad of course, and Color Rush by no means cornered the market on offensive wardrobe items. For example, I hated this Steelers' jersey and Cowboys' helmet even more than the Seahawks CR green, and almost as much as the Jags' CR mess.
  12. Yikes ... I hope Syracuse takes legal action of some kind. It's one thing when the Falcons and Cardinals play 'twinsies' with new but basically traditional designs. But this - this look is more a unique and original approach, right down to the no-white-anywhere and one block letter on the helmet. How long has Illinois had these? Are they alternates of some kind?
