  1. This isn't a Jerome Bettis playing his last game in his hometown so the league needs him to win so there's something to talk about. This whole pandemic is bigger than Kobe, and there will be no shortage of things to write about regardless of who wins. The league has way more pressing things to deal with now besides figuring out how to fix a playoff... that might not even complete anyway. Even if they wanted to fix it for the Lakers - which is ridiculous - all it takes is for one of them to get the virus and then it's all over.
  2. I think that was the early days of "Proline", which was probably the first step toward getting us to where we are now. The Eagles also made changes each year when they came out with their first midnight green set in '96. Most of the changes weren't as significant as the Patriot's, but they did get rid of the sleeve stripes and replace with a logo after the first season, which could be thought of as significant.
  3. Considering the NFL wasn't going to even allow them to switch full time to the throwbacks without holding them to the 5-year things, I'd say there's zero room for negotiating that policy. The only thing that might get for the owners to make an exception is if the new gear was dead last in sales, and therefore bringing everyone else down. New gear always sells at first, so there's zero chance of that happening.
  4. Relaxed rules when it comes to things like socks and alts, but is there any evidence of relaxed rules when it comes to noticeable jersey modifications? I doubt they'd allow anything that 1) wasn't for legitimate legibility reasons, and 2) required the replicas, shirsies, and other merch to be modified to match.
  5. All it does is highlight the absolute absurdity of their new uniform scheme.
  6. The Titans was just thickening, right? Did they even have to change it for the retail jerseys? I don't think there's much - if anything - the Rams can do if they're having second thoughts now. I'm struggling to think of any other number "adjustments" in the past 15 or so years. The last ones I can think of at all are the 2000 STL Rams (on-field change only), '97 Jaguars (changed during the preseason... not sure what happened with the replicas) and the mid-late '90s 49ers (just a change in block styles due to manufacturer change - before things were standardized) (can't say what year because the Gridiron Database uses #11 for some dumb reason.)
  7. someone needs to teach him how to use all caps effectively.
  8. When asked about playing in empty stadiums, Melvin Gordon (referring to the Chargers) said “Bro, we didn’t have fans anyway.”
  9. What if you could hack them, and get some idiot receiver to run straight out of bounds or even backwards? Or trick the QB into throwing right to a defender?
  10. Neither the Yankees nor the Dodgers took a left turn at Albuquerque during the pullover era. The Giants did, and it’s a wonderful period-specific script to use as an alt. The Pirates could also be considered one of those teams, had they not mucked it up from the mid 70s-late90s (and now maybe again).
  11. So I'm a goofball, and you're an expert on design? I have a few words I'd like to say back, but they may be phrases that became popular within the last 30 years, so I'm sure you'd fire back that I don't know the real English or something like that. I'm 100% convinced that you're a contrarian troll.
  12. The 2002 7 is an improvement. The 4 is a push.
  13. With TV numbers, the vertical stripes are just as bad and useless as the horizontal ones. Run it the whole way up the sleeve. Regarding the Steelers... while there's several ways to improve their look... 3d/beveled numbers ain't one.
  14. The gold trim and oversized script are part of what makes the modern version so great IMO. I'd hate to give that up. I'm indifferent to the headspoon. It looks fine with, but might be better without.
