  1. Sixers debuted a baseline ad for Rothman Orthopedics last night. Every team in the league will have one. If they don't have one yet, it's because they haven't sold it yet. We are reaching a point of ad clutter. Between the on-court baseline and apron, basket stanchion, seat covers, etc. I wonder when the clutter devalues the impact of the ads.
  2. Many patch deals expired after last season. We've already seen some movement to new sponsors by teams including the Heat and Clippers. There was widespread speculation that Harley would either not be able to afford a renewal or would not be interested in renewing due to financial reasons.
  3. Morgan, Rapinoe, Nike brass, etc. in Paris today for a "big event." I imagine it's the reveal of the WC kits.
  4. I assume the maple leaf on the left sleeve is a placeholder for the sleeve ads that will begin next year? I wonder if we will see something other than the MLS shield on the left sleeve of all/many new kits this year or just this one.
  5. There should be the flexibility to keep a uniform that is introduced as a "City" one-year design and turn it into the third uniform set. In the Sixers case, it would've been preferable to keep the cream City set from last year as this year's third, dump the current red set, introduce this design on red uniforms for the City, and then do these gray ones as the "Earned" set and ride them into the playoffs if you want the whole fighting/Rocky marketing campaign. Same thing could've been used to keep the Jazz's sunset unis while still achieving Nike/NBA's goal of new uniforms each year.
  6. The detailing on the number is similar to the design used on the Parley Ultraboosts and other adidas Parley shoes:
  7. Stance has significantly disccounted NBA on-court socks on their site in the past few days. Pretty disappointing development. I thought Stance did good work making unique designs that fit with the existing uniforms and made a nice product. Interested to see if Nike continues the team specific socks or goes back to generic ones.
  8. Isn't it possible that Alexi and Stoner are speaking about a different kit than the red & black one? Sounds like they saw one for the Gold Cup. This red/black kit could come soon and be for some MNT qualifying matches, WNT SheBelieves Cup, etc. then roll out Gold Cup shirt in summer for normal Confed Cup/summer tournament timing.
  9. Comcast "encouraged" the Sixers to change it to acknowledge the terms of the naming rights agreement.
  10. I wouldn't be surprised if the Rams stay mostly "as is" while playing in the Coliseum and then roll out a new uniform and logo for the move to Inglewood. The full identity of the team includes the new stadium, not renting from USC at the Coliseum. A plan that maximizes profits would feature 2 phases: 1) Big sales for the move in 2016. Doesn't depend on having something new or sexy. People will want whatever gear is associated with the new team. 2) Roll out your full identity for the move to the new stadium in 2019. Convince everyone who bought LA Rams gear in 2016 that they need the new and improved gear for Inglewood.
  11. The video I watched on their site featured a ship. (And bizarre digitally morphing uniforms.) They used a ship to introduce a logo set that went out of its way to OMIT any nautical imagery. What the hell? This makes literally NO SENSE. I thought their idea from the leaked slides was to be about LA and LAC without the legacy nautical flags, ships, etc. Now they focus the intro video for a new identity that has nothing to do ships around A BIG SHIP? My god, they really have no clue what they're doing.
  12. Interesting note from the MLS ASG: The goalie shirts didn't have the Bayern logo. I guess adidas took blank shirts and heat-pressed the T-Mo logo and player name & number. Sort of bush league from adidas. (Couldn't figure out how to embed the fancy legal Getty image embed. Regrets.)
  13. FIFA gets to enforce another arbitrary rule, and Adidas/the federations get more stuff to sell. A win-win! Especially convenient that its adidas, FIFA's corporate partner, that just happens to get to sell an extra shirt for one of its most popular teams. Funny how that works out.
  14. "Our" I'm sorry. I went to one of the remaining founding members. "The conference". Is that better?
