  1. In this thread I will create an alternate to add or fix for every NBA teams current uniform sets. To start, I have been watching the finals and cheering for Golden State all through the playoffs and it really bugs me that they don't have a beautiful alternate uniform. I obviously would love for the alternate to be yellow, so I thought about their history and decided to design something that pay homage to their uniforms of the past except using all of the current set's logos and scripts. I also thought it was too boring with just a traditional feel so I tried to incorporate the old uniform's design and style with design ideas of the modern age, hence the Bridge design on the side. So here is what I came up with. Here is a link to the uniform inspiration: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/x1luf2wgklgjh4h9emhezhxg9/Golden_State_Warriors/1972/Home_Uniform
  2. In your opinion, what are the worst offenders of all time in the still-ongoing "black for black's sake" trend, or the newer "gray for gray's sake" trend? Current? Past? A few that get on my nerves: BFBS: West Virginia men's basketball, black alternate: They wore these in the 2010 NCAA Tournament, making it all the way to the Final Four, so I'm sure many of you remember them. With dark blue being their primary color, there simply wasn't enough contrast with the numbers. I don't know whether they still have them; I read about a GFGS alternate they were getting a couple of years ago. Temple men's basketball, late 1990s: They still have a BFBS alternate, but this one wasn't an alternate---it was their only road uniform, replacing the gorgeous and iconic cherry red they had worn for years. Kansas City Royals road/alternate, Toronto Blue Jays entire uniform set, Cincinnati Reds road, mid 2000s: All three teams have a color as their nickname, or at least in their nickname, so why would they replace it with black? The Royals' was probably the most atrocious of the three; it was dated even before its introduction and wouldn't have looked good to my eyes even when it was in style (black-heavy late 90s). The Reds' black caps should've been killed off a lot sooner than they were---honestly, I don't see why they even need it as an accent color. I actually thought the Jays' GFGS home cap from 2004 looked decent, but overall they underutilized blue in that set. I was glad to see them go back to a more traditional design. Golden State Warriors alternate, present: Would this be BFBS or GFGS? Either way, it's unnecessary. Detroit Lions, former alternate: It didn't look altogether terrible, had it been for an expansion team or something. But it was for the Lions, who have a tradition-rich (and generally very tasteful) uniform history, with an excellent one-two punch of Honolulu blue and silver. They don't need black at all, much less as a jersey color. Best BFBS: Washington Huskies football and men's basketball alternate, late-2000s to present: Like with West Virginia's, these render the numerals hard to read; unlike West Virginia's, they look cool to me, in a modern "techy" sort of way. Arizona Cardinals: Their BFBS jersey isn't amazing, but it looks much better than their awful red jersey. I do find it slightly annoying, though, because Cardinals aren't black, they're red. This team's whole set (minus perhaps the logo and helmet) is due for a redesign, but they should maintain a black alternate jersey when that happens. Butler Bulldogs men's basketball: They actually look cool. I think navy blue uniforms would also look cool, though. I'd like to see them alternate between the two. Personal pet peeve: As briefly mentioned above, teams that have colors as (or in) their nicknames but wear another color (most commonly black, but not always) instead: Duke Blue Devils men's basketball and (more recently) football: Luckily they use the black as an alternate rather than eliminating the blue altogether. It doesn't look awful, but their blue looks much better. Stanford Cardinal men's basketball and football: Looks terrible, and cardinal is a color that they wear well in addition to being their nickname. You'd think people at such a prestigious school would see the incongruity here. Harvard Crimson men's basketball: Ditto, and they actually don't wear crimson now because of it. Boo. Niagara Purple/Purple Eagles: They sported black unis a few years back when they made the NCAAs. A real head-scratcher. North Texas Mean Green: Same thing. They're not the "Mean Black," they're the "Mean Green." Best and worst GFGS: Tennessee Volunteers football alternate: Best because the gray is a unique shade, it actually looks pretty good (esp. with orange numbers), and it makes me think of Tennessee's legendary Smoky Mountains. Worst because their orange is also a unique shade and it looks great, so any chance they pass up to wear it is a mistake. Next-worst GFGS: Wichita State Shockers men's basketball: Because it denies them a chance to ever wear yellow, the main color of their logo. Anyone else's thoughts are welcome!
  3. What team has the best alternate jersey? I nominate the Twins retro off-white uniform (I'm not biased) http://www.rantsports.com/clubhouse/wp-content/slideshow/2013/09/minnesota-twins-best-and-worst-uniforms/medium/2013-home-jersey-jesse-johnson-.jpg It looks clean and brings back the some of the best years in franchise history. (Plus it looks really good with the regular TC hat)
  4. As I often put it, I got ideas. Not necessarily enough for a full set, however. For instance, a road alt for the Braves based on their late 70s roads...I couldn't decide between a white-front or gray-front cap, so I went with both. Speak on it.Loosely straight versionGray-front version
  5. Hello everyone, I have been a HUGE fan of the NFL since the day I was born and I have also been an avid hunter for most of my life. I always thought it would be cool to have a group of jerseys for the states that are HUGE into hunting (Wisconsin, Minnesota, Texas, Illinois, Kansas, Colorado, and others). I would like this great community give me some ideas on how to make these uniforms awesome. Yes I do know the NFL have the wood camo jerseys but these would, hopefully, be used on game day. Here's a list of what I'm thinking: Teams: I already named off the states I feel are a large state when it comes to hunting, add more if you think there should be more. Color: Should it still be team colors or use some blaze orange and camo Style: Use the style the teams use or a new style to the jerseys Other: Just some more ideas of what I could do differently! Thank you all for the help!
  6. With the news that the NFL may lax it's uniform rules a bit to allow more use of third unis and even a possible fourth, I figure many teams may get in on the BFBS or GFGS trend, because, well, Nike is their outfitter right now. Here is a look at how every team would look with their current templates in a black or gray color. I tried to keep to the actual helmets, as I have no idea if a second helmet would be allowed under the new rules or not, but in some designs changes were inevitable to pull the look together. I will present the concept in black or gray (whichever I thought fit the team's scheme better) and then weigh in with a verdict on whether or not the look should ever see the light of day. If you think a scheme would work better with black than gray or vice versa, let me know and I will mock it up for you real quick. First up is the Chiefs: Verdict: If they could go with a black helmet and a red logo, I could see this on an NFL field. The Chiefs do not have an alternate and this could definitely be trotted out for prime time match-ups to get the fan base excited. I personally think this one is one of the better BFBS, as it goes incredibly well with the color scheme. The Raiders will be up in an hour or so, and maybe I will get the Broncos up before the night is done too. What do you think?
