  1. The Lions are exponentially better. My only complaint is the darker stroke. It would be best just the light silver numbers. They have enough character on their own, and are kind of a medium width, adding a darker stroke muddies the legibility. But not terribly. Really a fantastic update.
  2. NBA teams taking a lot of L's with Nike so far.
  3. Pretty sure the clippers are just cherry picking the flags that represent a close proximity of their color, correct? And as a Wolves fan, I'll wait until the reveal, but based on the leaks- the lack of the seamless tree pattern they've been using in all of their marketing is really a miss to me. That was a cool element. But we haven't seen anything in any sort of resolution besides potato, so I will not be overly critical yet. The jersey is weird - don't hate the beach short look, but not a huge fan of the wizards cosplay.
  4. They had many problems.
  5. I just realized how much i dislike their old white uniform.
  6. Cost, $600,000
  7. Not a fan. Especially of keeping that number font.
  8. The recent rebrand had many flaws, but this looks like a pretty big downgrade.
  9. Totally terrible Photoshop. Not the number. Not the proper new font or spacing. Wrong tags. Obviously fake swoosh. Also this is terrible.
  10. Oh god if there is a SOTA wolves jersey I may need a minute.
  11. Can't wait.
  12. SO...MANY...STRIPES...OF...DIFFERENT...WEIGHTS... While the Miller era jerseys embodied 90s Striping (and probably rightfully stayed there,) this was such a downgrade for me from the FloJo jerseys. I see why many like them, because they combine many different basketball uniform elements that work. But they mashed like 4 of them together, which was a visual equivalent of mixing 4 different fountain sodas.
  13. Taking the Soccer approach is a fantastic idea. I love the idea of the Lakers Celtics always being yellow/green.
  14. Looks like SignPainter Slant
  15. I think we all had the same reaction, Brent.
  16. Yeah, am I in the dark, or was the Suns Uniform-Remix a total surprise?
  17. Well this is my favorite new logo this year by a large margin.
  18. KEMP ERA MASHUPZ CONFIRMED /s

    So is the Todd Bertuzzi sucker punch, but i'm not sure which is uglier.

    I will never understand why Vancouver needs their name arched over their logo.

    The Capitals jerseys are stunningly strange. I LOVE the mock ups for the Wild jersey. As much as I like C, its almost like a laserbeam eye. But its better. Sadly they went with the worst of the 3, but they are all very nice. I will be buying the crud out of that jersey when its released.

    I shudder to think what they'll do for an alt. A beige away alt? Red just seems to be minimized. My bet is a stripe heavy super throwback or some sort of barberpole mess. (Best? case is maybe something like the 1994 Gophers hockey jerseys?) They'll go full fauxback. and we know, you never go full fauxback.

    As a Wild fan and a designer, I wanted to take the night to sleep on it. First takes can often be too reactionary. Whist I have my complaints (the stripe not going around the whole sweater, no hemline, etc.) This is their best dark jersey yet, and to that matter, they had perfection with the (now current) whites, so why change? (Minnesota sports have long had teams with different home and away templates) The Wild have always had a problem with their logo being so green, on a green background. I think it calls for a bigger keyline then you'd functionally want to use. Thats why they've trapped it in roundels or used a script. A center stripe is a damn clever way to solve this issue. I know a lot of you love the inaugural uniforms, but my unpopular opinion is that they were our second worst. (the reds they just retired with no hem stripe were awful.) The gold was too prominent, the logo got lost on the greens. The whites were okay, but the numbers were silly and hard to read. This is a new franchise, in a state that really likes to pat itself on its back for their hockey tradition. The vintage stuff sells very well here. Expect it moving forward.
  24. I REALLY like how the Wolves logo looks almost stainglass when embroidered. So much so, I had to buy one.
