Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

I don't think anyone has called them chrome since the reveal. Prior it was thought that it was anpossibility because they looked shinier than normal in that one picture that had to be really enhanced to see. Everyone knows it's silver and they even say it on the website.

All I was saying is that I have read probably a hundred posts over the last few years from various people trying to claim that this facemask finish is considered chrome. I wasn't specifically saying anyone claimed that about Detroit's facemask. I was just addressing it based off of what I have historically seen confused with frustratingly increasing frequency.

Actually, I LOVE the WCF on the sleeves. He was obviously a huge part of the Lions, and the way the incorporated the look of the old logo is great. After seeing these closer, I like em. not a fan of the blue pants AT ALL, and I kinda wish there was more white in the striping patterns, but overall? Not too shabby. 

He was a huge part of the Lions :censored:tiness. Embarrassing that they think he's on par with GSH.

Love the white on blue. Actually like all of them except the all gray option. Pair that gray jersey with blue pants and it might be okay

This set looks really great to me, even better than what I was expecting from the leaks. The helmet looks really nice. Granted, I am a bit of a sucker for metallic facemasks but I think it fits the Lions well. The jerseys are good but somewhat plain, which is why I like the Lions script in the sleeve stripe as added flair. The font looks fantastic- its modern, clean and fits the look well. The pants stripe remaining clean and traditional was a great choice. My only criticism would be that it should say Lions on both sleeves, the WCF breaks up the stripe and clutters things too much.

I really like it except for the fact that there's no contrasting socks for the blue pants. When they had them in 1998 they wore silver socks.

The number font looks very similar to the one Nike gave the Cal Bears.

Italicize them slightly, and flip-flop the curved and non-curved corners, and it's pretty close.  Not exact but close. (Not counting that nasty Cal "9")

Oh God... They kept it on there. No offense Lions fans, but get over it. Yes, it's sad your owner died, but c'mon. It's been 3 years. These permanent patches/decals(looking at you Chiefs and Raiders) need to end.

Yeah - he owned the Lions for a long time, during which they became synonymous with ineptitude. 

 

He didnt found the team, nor was he in charge during their one four world championships.  "Embarrassing" is exactly the right word.

I'm not a big fan of the 'GSH' on the Bears uniforms but I understand his importance to the franchise and why they honour him like that. This just comes across as ripping off Chicago.

At least the Chiefs and Raiders patches are for men who founded their teams and were winning owners with massive impacts on the sport. That's not WCF.

So what happened to that supposed fur pattern on the numbers? Thankfully it appears that was strictly rumor.

What patch do the raiders have?

It's a decal on the back of the helmets, not a patch.

And I see no problem with it whatsoever as a Raiders fan. It's about as inoffensive as it gets.

No black, actually adult sized helmet stripe, blue pants, all stripes match...?? Nothing destroys its even the word mark and initials. On tv you won't even see it during plays.

Ok I find that very unobtrusive, it's on the back of the helmet so it's not something you are likely to notice unless you are actively looking for it. You also wouldn't be able to even see it on TV over 90% of the broadcasts

The issue stems from the fact that the Bucs actually market their facemasks officially as "chrome", and have since the reveal.. So, it's mostly people believing what they're told, rather than just being wrong for no reason..

Numbers are....not great.  They're numbers that look great on skinny guys but stupid on fat or large players.  Should've kept the old numerals or gone to a variation of block.

 

Blue pants are garbage.  

 

That's about all I'm upset about.  Otherwise it's an upgrade.

Add some white to the stripe, drop the blue pants and wordmark on the shoulder and i think this is a pretty solid look.

Is it me, or is there something different/strange about the jersey texture -- especially on the sleeves?  It almost looks like felt.
