  1. I think I mentioned it in a different thread, I think Miami looked best with the aqua/teal face mask, but I think with the current uniform set they have, the white looks fine as it is. I think the teal/aqua color they have now wouldn’t look good since it’s a brighter shade than what they had. The Chiefs I can see going with a red face mask, it would be similar to what ISU looks like now.
  2. Side note from the sock talk, still hoping for Buffalo to trot out with CR Red jerseys and white pants with CR socks.
  3. I didn’t get a picture but on ESPN they panned to the crowd and showed someone wearing a “Platinum” JJ Watt Jersey. I don’t know if it’s to go as an accessory to the one Nike/New Era put out or if it’s old news.
  4. I think I'm going to wait until the regular season to see what they do as far as combos go, but I think the set is in general a positive move forward. My only issues are the helmet seems to "change" color under different lights, hopefully the organization finds a way to fix that so it stays consistent with the uniform, and the green is a much improved shade of green. I don't mind the black facemask, but it wouldn't bug me if they switched to green or grey and phased black out entirely.
  5. What if you did a slight red outline on the numbers/name? Even though the red is the color of the "eyes" of the logo, I'd assume there would be a small presence of red somewhere.
  6. I think that Oregon's best uniforms came from the Rose Bowl ear up until 2017/18. I loved the wing/feather pattern on the shoulders and it was unique to them. While I do think their current set is nice, it just feels too plain for a school that prided itself on having hundreds of different combos. There were definitely some duds from this set including the Mascot themed one and the Lewis and Clark set, but I think that until they debuted the Big Number set, they've lost something.
  7. I don’t have a picture but YSU and Sanford are wearing modified 150 patches that have an FCS Kickoff Logo next to it on a rectangular patch. Looks really poorly. Should’ve opted for one and not the other. EDIT: Tweet from YSU shows a better look at patch.
  8. The Washington One isn’t bad. If they ever went the route of moving away from the logo, I wouldn’t mind it. Still would like the R inside the drum or the spear though. The rest are not ideal.
  9. Missed an opportunity to call it the Kellogg’s Cereal Bowl
  10. I like the winged helmets a lot. My thing is I don’t like how these ones are a single color. Having silver wings on the green helmets would do wonders. That or going with the “O” in the accent color for all the helmets
  11. I wouldn’t have a problem with the Red Bull teams. Save for Salzburg(?) last season, RB Leipzig have had some pretty good kits in recent years.
  12. How to Kill a *Decent* League Wide Promotion: 1. Create promotion and run it for a couple of seasons 2. Promotion is pretty successful 3. Decide to totally change it and make it the most bland thing possible. This is a really poor move. The fact that the white jerseys won’t have black names, numbers or the teams logo is dumb for people watching in stands. White on silver rarely looks good.
  13. So these aren’t bad, but the minimal use of blue and orange is disappointing. I get it’s a black out and not a “Blue, Orange and Black out” but these are fairly meh.
  14. So does this mean that teams that made the playoff last year (i.e. Warriors, Celtics, Bucks, etc.) are going to get shooting shirts/jackets/gear that are modeled after a uniform.? As opposed to an actual recolored uniform?
  15. I don’t mind that. Remove the side piping and you got a good look in place.
  16. This is the best case scenario. There is nothing wrong with their jerseys now, at most they can do a City or a different alternate that has the Fiesta vibe. It keeps both sides happy.
  17. See I was thinking the Nashville Blues would be fine, my other thought was something like the Nashville Bluegrass or something similar to the regional music scene, but I don't see an easy solution to that.
  18. I think that 99% of this website wants this to happen.
  19. https://www.footyheadlines.com/2019/07/new-york-red-bulls-19-20-away-kit.html By the sounds of this, NYRB are replacing their Red jersey with a black/red jersey. Could this be a homage to the Metrostars?
  20. I've always been a less is more kind of guy. So I don't mind these, if they had a white version and a light blue version with different wordmarks (DALLAS preferably) this would be a great simplistic set.
  21. Adidas teams in the 2018 World Cup had the "Soviet" inspired numbers and names and they were........uh something.
  22. Same here, they've done a really good job with the CPL and with Union and several Championship teams. I don't get the gradient shirt thing. It's so unpleasing, because then it looks like you're wearing a shirt that's been dyed if you aren't wearing the right shorts with it.
  23. This is kind of strange, you would wonder why they can't take pictures? Is it a new template? I feel like there's some kind of market speak that is going to come up.....
  24. Cleveland has always been fairly traditional uniform wise (save for the current set). The reason Tampa Bay changed was they needed something to stick out and be trendy in the 90's/2000's. You may as well be saying that the BIlls go back to red hlemets because they went to 4 Super Bowls and had the most success they had, or that Green Bay go back to Navy/Gold since they won NFL Titles in those colors. Cleveland may not have won an NFL championship, but the orange helmet is very much a symbol of the team and if it changed it would cause a riot among Cleveland faithful. Also FIFY.
