  1. Over the past few weeks, a number of A's fans have noticed that the team hasn't worn their gold alternates at all this season. During a Q&A with NBC Sports California's Brodie Brazil, A's manager Bob Melvin made it sound like the Kelly Green uniform set, introduced last season, all but replaced the golds:
  2. Even though I've liked it in a few instances (such as the 2003-2006 Spring Training/BP jerseys), i'd like to see the Giants ditch the gold drop shadows on their home uniforms. The gold made some sense as a fancy thing to do for their first season at Oracle Park back in 2000, but now it just seems kind of pointless. Getting rid of the gold would also bring the current home creams closer to the 1960's uniforms (seen below) they were modeled after. Moving on from the gold would also clean up the road grays. However, I wouldn't mind it if the gold stuck around on the "Orange Friday" jerseys.
  3. I'm not sure if this is an unpopular opinion or not, but I like the current MLS score bug quite a bit. It reminds me of the 2003 NFL on FOX look, which I've always been a big fan of. Something about the slanted lines appeal to me, I guess.
  4. It looks like NESN (2018, 2019) and WGN (2018, 2019) were the only other stations to make changes to their graphics packages this season. Even then, most of the changes they made were slight.
  5. Week 3 of the 2003 NFL season was the only time Cleveland traveled to San Francisco while the 49ers wore their 1998-2008 set. Not a bad-looking matchup, in my opinion.
  6. Generally speaking, I liked the new NBC package. The angled nature of the scorebar reminded me of the 2003 NFL on FOX package, which I loved, and it had a certain flair that's uniquely NBC/SNF. CBS still has my favorite current NFL package, however. As a Bay Area baseball fan, I'm curious if our NBC Sports Bay Area/California telecasts will feature a baseball version of the new graphics package, or if they'll stick with the current version (based on the graphics package introduced for Super Bowl 49) for one more season.
  7. Good point. NFL preseason games have sort of become the last bastion of locally-produced professional sports telecasts.
  8. This is pretty much all I can find on YouTube: A clip from the 2006 A's Preview Show Literally three seconds of the 2007 scorebug A full game from 2005. It's pretty similar to the 2006-2007 package, but I don't prefer it as much.
  9. I know I'm a little late with this, but my favorite graphics packages: NFL 2001-2002 NFL on FOX 2003 NFL on FOX 2006-2007 MNF 2006-2008 NFL on CBS 2010-2011 NFL on FOX Current NFL on CBS I wouldn't call it a "favorite" yet, but the current NFL on Fox package is growing on me.
