  1. Dallas Texans changed to the Kansas City Chiefs, and I believe they only changed their logo on the helmet.
  2. If it was Minnesota Auroras that would basically an inverse of the town of Aurora, Minnesota. Kinda cool for residents of Aurora. This got me wondering if this ever happened before. Cool fact: there is a Ranger, TX. I’m guessing there are more examples.
  3. Those uniforms are always one of the best in the State Hockey Tournament.
  4. I still agree with my opinion from November, but the recolored logo has grown on me and I would be fine with it staying along with a name change. I was worried that the yellow numbers made the jersey a little yellow heavy. After seeing it on the ice, paired with the green breezers, it makes for a nice balanced uniform. These colors feel more modern (and retro at the same time) and makes the forest green stand out as a byproduct of the late ‘90s darkening of sports uniforms. Name change or not, kelly green and yellow should be the colors of Minnesota’s hockey team.
  5. I’m not old enough to remember the North Stars, but they had a nice color scheme and a much better name than the Wild. If the Wild picked a different name, the whole subject may not exist. I have yet to meet a Wild fan that actually likes the name and there is still a ton of North Stars gear being worn in Minnesota. If it were up to me the Wild would change their name to the North Stars. Put the N on the chest and move the recolored Wild logo to the shoulder. Stars and North Stars should be different enough to avoid confusion. The MLB has the Reds, Red Sox, and White Sox and no one complains. The MLS has many teams named the United. Heck, the NHL already has the Blues and Blue Jackets along with the Canadiens and the Canucks.
  6. Wife: What are you wearing “Rams from the road?” Rams: Ugh, khakis. Wife: They sound hideous.
  7. My point was that the Packers’ name, when looking subjectively at all the names of the big 4, is the worst of all in my opinion. Everyone seems to ignore how bad the name is. Saying something gains value over time makes judging any team name a moot point, because eventually they will just be a historic name and then have value. Who cares about the name Kraken or Wild, because in 100 years they will be “classic” names? Additionally, I can’t pass up an opportunity to insult the team I hate more than any other. Does it bother any one else that Green Bay uses just a G for their logo and not a GB? I can’t think of another situation like it. But I guess it’s acceptable since it’s “classic.” I shouldn’t cringe when I see it because it’s “classic,” and therefore a “good” design.
  8. Less we all forget about the Packers... Imagine if a name like this came out today. Introducing the Tulsa Baggers... It’s only acceptable because it has been around for 100 years.
  9. The first thing I thought of with the Milwaukee script was Milwaukee Tools. I had to look up theirs logo since I wasn’t very familiar with it. Both scripts don’t have loops on the l and k. And both have two flat portions on the tops on the e’s. I realize there are many differences, but I can see now why I thought of Milwaukee Tools right away.
  10. It appears to me that the NFL standard for logo changes is to make changes so subtle that most people don’t even realize that the logo changed.
  11. The reverse doesn’t make sense because the contrail is in front of the jet. Reverse both the jet and contrail, which would result in the nose of the jet being above the j.
  12. I can’t say I like either helmet, but I like the idea of doing something more than a small nearly invisible logo on the helmet. Maybe the NHL can take a page from college hockey and start doing more unique helmets such as these.
  13. Or you can change it to two shoulder stripes of white-green.
  14. So are the Packers claiming 100th season last year and 100th anniversary this year? This has always been annoying to me. There is no consistency to whether teams celebrate the seasons or the anniversaries. If this is true, it is the first time that I can remember that a team has double dipped and done both back to back.
  15. Is baseball at the beginning of the powder blue for powder blue’s sake (PBFPBS) era? Before we know it half the league could be have powder blue alts. And this is different than in the ‘80s when it was a substitute for grey. Teams are wearing them with white pants now like it’s a team color.
