  1. As the article notes, they did this dance before. And Valencia dropped its attempt to trademark a silhouetted bat logo. Don't see why they'd be any more successful this time.
  2. The brown remains unchanged.
  3. If there wasn’t so much contrast between the brown and orange, I would agree with you.
  4. Bump? The previous post was just two minutes before yours. You afraid this thread wouldn’t be in the top spot on the page?
  5. The pattern doesn’t, but they at least had white NOBs. Add the face mask and every single element of the uniform had a dash of white. Doesnt change my basic point, though, was that pants with Braisher stripes were the quintessential NFL look. No reason the Browns can’t/shouldn’t join in.
  6. I don't get that at all. Braisher stripes seems to me to be the very Platonic idea of a professional look. Especially when the pants match the helmets.
  7. I think your beef is with the Standells; they’re the ones who wrote it, not me.
  8. Considering the chorus, it isn't hard to understand why the Red Sox adopted it. Of course, the song was originally a sort of ironic and back-handed. But given enough time, irony becomes sincerity and jokes about the Boston Strangler are less about the fear of living in a dangerous place and more about "look how tough we are".
  9. Seems like a good plan all around. Hope they pull off the approval.
  10. Teams have been doing that since 2000 for the Japan opening series. Sometimes they even added helmet ads too. I'm usually pretty wary of the slippery slope, but after twenty years it seems unlikely that this is a test case or step on the way.
  11. I don’t doubt that. But it doesn’t mean they actually like the Color Rush uniform.
  12. Yes, thank you. They had to agree when they eliminated the league presidents and consolidated baseball under the commissioner. Still think they made the wrong choice, adhering to the AL standard instead of the NL’s accounting.
  13. The NL used to count turnstile clicks, while the AL counted tickets sold (which is still better than “tickets distributed”). I remember it because this was back when the Brewers jumped from the AL to the NL. Then the Senior Circuit changed to match the Junior around 2000.
