  1. I may be seeing something that's not there, but... Otherwise, it's a good look.
  2. *** CAUTION: Pure Speculation Ahead *** We already know that Memphis' City Edition will be their new grey this season. It just occurred to me that since the day of their redesign, the Grizzlies have been giving away these sunglasses: (Please ignore my oddly dusty dashboard...) While they've given away sunglasses for a couple of seasons now, they're usually yellow and haven't matched a uniform before. However, my bet is on a grey set with this new "MEM" shipping container mark front-and-center.
  3. Why does the NBA insist on such a lazy approach? Every single one of these team names either (1) have a proper Spanish translation, like Toros for Bulls, or (2) would be the same word in Spanish because it's a proper noun. Is this a licensing issue? They don't want to/can't register "Sacramento Reyes," so why bother? I may be off base, but I feel like this approach could be considered offensive.
  4. The ACTUAL Conference Champs banner is already gold. If they're going to continue the different colors for different banners route, then they've run out of colors. My solution w/o redoing every banner: WHITE - Division NAVY - Presidents' Trophy GOLD - Western Conference SILVER (shimmer fabric!) - Stanley Cup
  5. It's definitely grey: Which makes me wonder, what color would an eventual Stanley Cup banner be?
  6. I'm a Preds fan, but this is ridiculous, borderline embarrassing. IMO, the only acceptable banners are: - Stanley Cup - Conference (PLAYOFF) Champs - Presidents' Trophy - Retired #'s Put all of the Division titles on one banner. Anything else is superfluous. Other than the weird and unnecessary grey banner, these do look good.
  7. Way too reminiscent of the Columbus Crew. Darn shame, as they used very unique, NM-centric colors leading up to this logo. And it's not like it would take much effort to make it more New Mexican:
  8. Compare the installed logo to the bug in the corner... Someone didn't Do Their Job.
  9. Great postseason logo for games that count as regular season for some reason.
  10. With the exception of maybe hockey, the only sport in North America that could do pro/rel is soccer. Baseball is structured for development inside 30 organizations, so letting the O's drop to AAA while moving the Memphis Redbirds up to play at the Cardinals' level would make zero sense. Basketball and football have basically no minor league system (excluding college ball) and no real competition. Hockey could work if affiliations between NHL and AHL/ECHL teams were dissolved, but for the love of all things holy, don't allow Peoria of all teams to move up. That media market already thinks they're God's gift to hockey.
  11. This photo in particular is infuriating. Either the dumb shoulder yoke or the dumb pants stripe needs to have the colors shades of grey/silver flipped. That kind of inconsistency makes less than zero sense in a monochrome set...
  12. This shot in particular makes me wish they added grey pants, and maybe even changed the numbers to grey or Columbia. Smart kid! Go ahead and get his CCSLC handle set up now.
  13. Echoing this thought. Yeah, last week's look could benefit from a pant stripe, but the emphasis on teal saves the look on the whole. To extend the pizza metaphor, this week's white-from-the-neck-down set is:
  14. You should only think of Nashville when you see an acoustic guitar. Whereas this style of guitar should evoke a city with a rich history of rock and Memphis. The logo is okay. The angles are weird, especially the "Cleveland" mark against the already slanted guitar shape. The placement of the is always unfortunate. What really redeems this identity is ALL of the type and supporting art. Especially love the animated stitches and the bat-shaped frets.
  15. Today, the Grizzlies (temporarily) installed some new banners in the FedExForum plaza: Then they sent out VIP invitations to an event this Thursday: The number font in the above graphic appears to match what their G-League Memphis Hustle squad wore starting last season, which I endorse 100 percent. Late last week, they parked three storage trailers in the middle of the arena and painted them dark grey: So it looks like the Grizzlies will finally (officially) reveal their new look. Random Thoughts: Based on the way they're using that new |||E||| (MEM) mark, I almost anticipate a parquet floor design. Plus, the emphasis on the northwestern art makes me wonder if they're going to venture into throwback territory this season...?

  19. RT @davelozo: I swear to god if this Vegas thing ends up being a Jimmy Kimmel prank...

  20. @lovelyminda ...are you okay?

  21. @tj_chillot You have the strangest opinions.

  22. I legit LOVE that game 7 isn't until Thursday night. If history is any indication, #Preds will need that extra day…
