    Does anybody know if the Predators used their Anniversary Logo in their uniforms at all? I’m watching the game and I can’t find it anywhere.

    They have not. Which makes it doubly odd that they created versions of the mark for use on gold vs on white. Like, totally re-colored, not just different keylines.

    Uhh someone answer me cuz I've never been there but isn't Little Ceasers pizza square?? If so then wouldn't make sense to show that in the logo?

    Their normal $5 or whatever pizza is standard round with wedge slices. The deep dish ones are square.

    They're not guaranteed to be the Community jersey, though I don't see why not (sans the sleeves of course)?

     

    My connection with team claims it'll be the MLK jersey.

    I figgered that the MLK jerseys hadn't been worn in a couple of years, or maybe I'm wrong.  I don't want to see a gold jersey.

     

    They were revealed September 2016 and were first worn back in January: http://www.nba.com/grizzlies/news/mlk50-uniform-160914/

     

    Part of me would like to see a gold jersey set, but their banding unofficially relegates gold to a tertiary color (except during the playoffs with Growl Towels).

    Last time I saw the new Fox bug, they were keeping track of shots for both teams the whole game.   In a large grey box beneath the score.  Way too big and completely unnecessary.

     

    The Preds' broadcast has been using the shot counter tonight, and it nearly doubles the height of the graphic. Not a fan.

     

    Also saw this setup while they ran an (enormous) ad for Chevy. I much prefer this smaller box with just the abbreviations. Pardon the crappy photo.

    EDIT: So when there's a 4-on-4 situation, the bar gets LONGER, putting that info and clock to the right of the game clock. Ridiculous. Love all the supporting graphics (bumper scores, player comparisons, lower thirds) but the hockey score bar is just ham-fisted.

    Looks like there will be some nice uniform matchups for the playoffs this year.

    So the Division and LCS are sponsored this year? Can't say I'm a huge fan of that...

     

    Also, how much more money did T-Mobile have to shell out to make sure their logo was in the signature fuschia?

    While I "know" Memphis is getting a new/refinished court, don't count on this being 100% accurate. I've never seen the wordmarks colored this way on navy blue, only the inverse:

    I wish there were some gold involved in the new/2K court, it is a clean, no-nonsense look.

     

     

    Grizzlies posted about their new video board last week. Just realized they gave us a sneak of the new court as well:

    All-navy lanes are confirmed, as well as the proper coloring of the baseline wordmarks.


  7. FWIW, the Preds' new away look does not feature sock stripes that match the sleeves:

    I was very hopeful for this set in particular, but I'm not impressed. Both the home and away looks suffer from a bottom-heaviness. Basically ALL of the navy is in the pants area, which makes the uniform unbalanced IMO. If the gold jersey were worn with navy helmets again, it would look better. If this white set had thicker blue stripes (and ironically, gold sleeves stripes instead of elbow-down cuffs to match the socks), it would look better.

     

    As a Preds fan, I want to like these jerseys. I just can't. And I'm almost 100% certain this is purely the fault of team ownership, not adidas.

    Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

     

    That's a shame, because the uniforms are a couple minor changes away from being perfect.

     

    Is this the unpopular opinion thread?

    Whatever they do...pretty please don't go Florida State with that Greek pattern on the uniforms.

     

    FSU's main problem is the drastic contrast between the garnet and gold/beige. If the Titans did go all out with a pattern, it may look fine with navy and "luv ya" blues.

    Unsure if the Canes have made it public anywhere, but Carolina will be using the 20th Anniversary logo at center ice this season according to the PNC Arena webcam.

    Looks like center red features doubled-up warning flags, which should make some folks here unnecessarily happy...

    People think Nashville's new uniforms are terrible, apparently because there is too much gold or not enough blue.

    I love them, there is just enough gold. 

    It's less about the proportion of the colors and more about distribution. Nearly all of the navy is on the cuffs and hem, which makes the sweater itself (AKA, the piece that sells) look super plain. Move that blue on the elbow or shoulders, and it would look more interesting.

     

    Agreed that the full uniform looks good with "just enough gold."

    Looks like the Grizzlies lost the yellow college lanes.

    A contact of mine says "I wondered why they sent the floor off..." Between the new scoreboard, ribbons, and other upgrades, FedExForum should look pretty fresh this fall.

    A clean transition to the Nike template for Memphis. I like that the white jersey ditched the navy arm trim while keeping the blue collar.

     

    I'm hearing the Grizz will keep the black MLK set (minus sleeves) for their "Community" uniform. My source hasn't heard anything about the other (Athlete?) edition, so not sure if the lighter "Beale Street" blue set will make the jump.

     

    EDIT: The Grizzlies' release notes call the two remaining editions "Statement" and "City," which while stupid still sounds better than whatever Nike was peddling earlier.

     

    Semi-related news: NBA schedules should be released next week.

    Baseball is returning to Luther Williams Field in Macon, Georgia. Specifically, a summer collegiate outfit in the Coastal Plain League. The team has unveiled the five finalists in its "Name the Team" contest. They are:

    Macon Bacon
    Macon Heat
    Macon Hits
    Macon Noise
    Macon Soul


    Frankly, based upon these candidates, I'm of the mind that they should have simply resurrected the Macon Peaches name sported by teams in the South Atlantic League, Southern Association, Southern League, and Southeastern League for 42-and-a-half seasons. 

    As of now, only the Macon Bacon moniker has been registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

    You can provide the team with feedback about the team name finalists at http://www.maconbaseball2018.com

    Considering this team is (at least part-)owned by the same folks behind the Savanna Bananas, I think we know the winner already.
