  1. I think the biggest issue ... at least for me ... is the use of the white jerseys on the road. Sure it's happened before in the past, but there's no rhyme or reason it seems for when their worn on the road. I wish the white jerseys were worn only as a clash kit.
  2. It's too "corporate" for my liking. It needs some character like the Final Four logo. Especially more green.
  3. The Sharks made the playoffs?
  4. I like that. Sleek and classy.
  5. Easily the worst and most invasive ad patch in the NBA. Gross.
  6. They should make this their primary jerseys. SMH.
  7. Tweak the number font to match the OKC and Thunder and that's a real winner. I also think that the Thunder could and should make OKC their primary mark. They can get away with it.
  8. The primaries have grown on me over time. When they were unveiled I remember being VERY underwhelmed, especially with the blue roads. Do I still think they need a refresh? Um, yeah. But, I'm also okay if they don't.
  9. I would lean on nostalgia and local appropriate names ... New York Bulldogs D.C. Renegades St. Louis Stallions Tampa Bay Bandits Dallas Outlaws Houston Avengers Los Angeles Rhinos Seattle Sockeyes
  10. Sure those are SUPER plain, but I did like the storyline behind them. I like them better than what they have this year.
  11. Two thoughts ... in PRO football -- Bulldogs is one that could used and embraced. I'm actually surprised it's not used. Of course in college and HS that's another story. But, I'd love a Bulldogs name. I'm sure you're right about Athletics, Packers and Magic. But, it's also hard to compare the three since they all come from different eras and got their nicknames through different methods (nickname from newspapers, sponsor, name-the-team with heavy marketing considering) ... but, now, in today's American sports world we've kind of established what kind of nicknames work for professional sports -- animals (Lions, Tigers, Rams, Hornets, Ravens, etc), regional names (Nationals, Texans, Canadiens, Phillies, Yankees), regional appropriate names (Lakers, Jazz, Oilers, Nuggets, Spurs, Magic, Hurricanes, Canucks), mythical names (Wizards, Titans, Knights), people's nicknames (Redskins, Blackhawks, Celtics). I'm sure I could make that list longer especially considering early 1900 baseball nicknames. There are other "rules" we've kind of adopted ... singular nicknames are not always the best (Magic, Jazz, Wild), and double name nicknames are pretty ridiculous, especially for top tier professional sports (Mighty Ducks, Golden Knights, Silver Stars, etc). Though those rules are thrown out the window for minor league (especially baseball). My point being -- if the XFL wants to be taken more seriously I'd avoid minor league sounding names. They can get creative, just don't go overboard IMO.
  12. Just add LED lights ... http://news.sportslogos.net/2017/04/01/vegas-golden-knights-uniform-leaks-features-led-lights/
  13. This is my favorite part about waiting for logo or jersey reveals. The speculation and rampant rumors is part of the game that's soooooo blown out of proportion that you sometimes need to wear a tinfoil hat to just read through all the comments here. Carry on.
  14. I lost a friendship because when I was a kid my friend and I got into fight over the location Washington Bullets. He was insistent that the Bullets played in Washington state and not in DC, because they weren’t the Washington DC Bullets. Even after I showed they played in the East and the Sonics in the West he wouldn’t accept it.
