  1. Instead of that navy helmet that makes them look like Chicago, Seattle, Denver, Los Angeles, and Tennessee. (FWIW, no, I don't think they look especially like any of the teams I listed, but if someone can say a white helmet makes them "look like everyone else" then I can point out that there are just as many navy helmets.)
  2. I'd have a lot less of a problem dealing with a monochrome dark baseball uniform than I do having to deal with all the monochrome dark football uniforms. In my mind, baseball uniforms are supposed to have matching jerseys and pants, and football uniforms are supposed to have contrast.
  3. A lot of people complain about the Bengals current uniform being less of a sports uniform for a tiger-themed football team, and more of a costume. I would agree, and most of my Bengal concepts (found elsewhere in this thread) tend towards simplifying the Bengals look. However, the thought occurred to me... what if we went in the other direction? A full-on tiger embrace? And...
  4. This might be my 50th Cleveland Browns concept. And they're all very similar. Here i'm pulling from multiple existing Browns' uniforms. Home sleeve stripe is from the current color rush uniform... road sleeve stripe is from the classic. Helmet, white socks, and white pants are classic, orange pants from the 80's, browns pants from the color rush. The only thing I pulled from the current (non-color rush) uniform is the "Cleveland" jersey mark, although I shrunk it a bit. I'm pretty happy with it.
  5. Yeah, it's looking bad for the Patriots... They might have to go on the road before winning the next Superbowl
  6. If your pee is the color of Nashville's jerseys you really REALLY need to hydrate better.
  7. They're both wearing gold. One team is wearing"athletic gold" and the other is wearing"Vegas gold". Jeebus, this old discussion is tiring.
  8. I know that sleeve-flag gets a lot of love around here, but I think it's too busy, especially on a modern jersey. Just use the pants stripe there and you can't top it.
  9. There's never a bad time to leave behind a crappy uniform, and return to a significantly better one.
  10. Since the Jets stole my design for the Panthers, I decided to rework it... Thoughts appreciated.
  11. I just realized this is obsolete now, as it's basically the Jets' new uniforms
  12. Yikes. I most definitely am. I went back and added the DON'T because I DON'T.
  13. The large wordmark on the upper jersey looks great in college IMO. Probably because I'm used to it, but Oklahoma and Michigan State wouldn't look right without it. I was also kind of ok with it for the Browns... As a city pride one-of-a-kind thing, but I definitely don't want to see it become a common thing in the NFL.
  14. Man, that Memphis Express helmet sure is getting a lot of love in this thread.
  15. If any of this is true, his friend better keep his resume ready.
  16. Apparently, it's Tommy and Susie that can't be left alone.
  17. I'm starting to see some calls here for the black jersey to be worn with the green pants. While pretty much anything is better than black monochrome, I don't see the black over green option being much better. Not with that plain white stripe. It all feels a bit disjointed.
  18. I never said I wouldn't eat it I have made that decision more than once.
  19. I lived in Toledo during the decade of the 90's. Met my wife there, got married there, have nothing but great memories. IMO its not that Tony Packo's is especially bad, it's that (Thanks to M*A*S*H) everybody comes to town thinking its THE place, and that if you're local, you must worship it. It's kind of like visiting Australia, and wanting to go to Outback Steakhouse. (I mean, maybe. Hell, I've never been to Australia, right?) Anyway,here's all you need to know about Tony Packo's. They serve something they call a Chili Sundae; That's a "Sundae" with sour cream instead of ice cream, chili sauce instead of chocolate sauce, cheese instead of nuts (I guess), and a cherry tomato. Read it again, if you don't believe it. (See, I can take a thread deep into left field, too.)
  20. Unnecessary, gimmicky, and awesome. (It can be all 3 right?)
  21. Good Lord ... I don't think I've ever seen that from this close.
