  1. "They should have at least made a stenciled version of their normal road wordmark instead of a generic sans-serif font, and not drastically changed the color scheme to reference an obscure city flag that nobody knows about." After the Marathon bombings, anyone around here who didn't know the flag colors quickly found out what they were. It's a prominent scheme come Marathon time.
  2. If you aren't well versed in the whole Patriot's Day celebration in Boston, it's the third Monday of April and the Red Sox hold the only scheduled morning game in baseball at 11:00. The Boston Marathon runs concurrently and the fans spill out of Fenway after the game into Kenmore square where they cheer on the runners as they make their way down the final mile and a half of the race course. The Sox debuted new home jerseys for the day in 2014, replacing the Tuscan "Red Sox" on the front with "Boston". These new Nike ones draw from the Marathon, using their colors and the stenciled font similar to the one used on the finish line. One their own, they aren't bad. But it's a huge design departure for the Red Sox and once you're beyond the jerseys, the accessories have a very strong UCLA knockoff vive.
  3. Sounds like it: https://www.bostonglobe.com/2021/04/06/sports/red-sox-unveil-yellow-jerseys-part-city-connect-venture-with-nike/ "The Arizona Diamondbacks, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, Miami Marlins, and both the Chicago Cubs and White Sox are also included in Nike’s City Connect Series."
  4. Thank you. In a league increasingly devoid of red (only Dallas has a primarily red kit, now that Chicago has abandoned the look for the current cycle, and Atlanta's is a much darker shade to begin with), the Revs had a chance to go with a colorful option, but instead gave us one of, if not the least inspired design they've ever worn (the 2004 Reebok last minute fill-in set, notwithstanding). Light blue trim introduced with no significance. Navy blue trim on the opposite side, but black for the sponsor, names and numbers. And a recycled template design on the body with zero ties to the team. Plus, they had the audacity to name it after their main supporters sections, even though the supporters were never once included in any conversations regarding this design.
  5. My condolences to everyone that wanted Olympique Montreal. You got the bastard child of this instead.
  6. Funny how people are all up in arms about seeing a Tim Horton's or Discover ad on the side of a helmet, but have never complained about seeing Bauer, CCM or Reebok there for years upon years. I don't think the manufacturers put the logos/wordmarks there for aesthetics.
  7. (Sorry for harping on this, but it eats at me.) How can you look at the white cuffs and not see that black was a much better option?
  8. Dallas' new RR sweater looks like what happens when you take the stunning 1999 design and suck the life out of it like they did with their 2007 set:
  9. The white cuffs ruin this for me. As a Bruins fan, this is the one I was looking most forward to and the leaks had black cuffs. The color balance is totally off with them here. This was so close to perfection.
  10. My best guesses: ANA 95 ARZ 98 BOS 90 BUF 98 CGY 98 CAR 79 CHI 40 COL 79 CLB 00 DAL 99 DET 98 EDM 79 FLA 95 LAK 89 MIN 78 MTL 77 WAS 98 NJD 82 NYI 80 NYR 96 OTT 92 PHL 95 PIT 97 STL 00 SJS 98 TBL 04 TOR 70 VAN 01 LVK 95 WAS 96 WPG 79
  11. Tempted to say the 92 is indeed Ottawa. I think the missing 98 ones are Calgary and Buffalo. The purple one is throwing me off.
  12. The white cuffs look out of place and with black pants, the color balance is way off.
  13. Similar to when the Rangers adopted the new template and the lettering was narrowed to fit, the lettering on this has been narrowed and truncated to fit. As such, it looks way worse. There was significantly more real estate to work with back in the CCM days and a lengthy word such as "Pittsburgh" had room to breathe. The lettering fit the space nicely. The new version looks like a cheap knockoff, sadly.
  14. Soooooooooooo close. The white accents on the blue jersey are completely unnecessary. Regardless, a marked improvement.
