SIAP: Grantland Article on Jerseys


I pretty much agree with every word of this.

It is, in short, the nightmare of every sports fan who wants the best player taking the last-second shot, who prizes hero ball, who wants the author of destiny to be a single human being working at his or her competitive and creative peak. But it also shouldn’t be mistaken for the fever dream of the analytical fan who craves solid play design in a game’s waning moments. The Pelicans’ new uniforms are why collaboration is misunderstood.


It's a fricking uniform.

Obviously it goes on a little much, but I agree about the process to make everything for "mass approval" these days. It's kind of like with restaurants. I find I can barely get a great meal anymore when I travel cause everyone is so afraid of putting any bold flavors in their dishes. They cook them perfectly, no problem there, but there's just nothing that really hits you.

Make a uniform people remember. Some might not love it, but some will. I would be stunned if anyone really LOVED our unis, they're just there. It was a copout IMO.

Grantland is pretty fricking huge. It's Bill Simmons's site that focuses on sports and entertainment. Zach Lowe writes for them and he's the best in the biz.

Yeah, that article was stupid. Anyone could have said our uniforms are plain and that the Pels organization went the safer route.

You don't need to write a freakin essay about it.

My God that was pretentious as hell. It wasn't this generation's Allegory of the Cave. It was some freaking uniforms.

The bumps in the numbers are weird and I don't particularly care for them. After that the uniform is sleek and stylish without being garish and I have no problem with understated when apparently the fashionista portion of sports media was looking for "AUTHENTIC CREOLE MARDI GRAS YA YA!" so that they could then pooh-pooh those uniforms as too modern and obnoxious and how nobody can appreciate the simplicity of days gone by.

frick em.

They can lose them, too, as long as they are in New Orleans.

It's not like the uniforms will never change.

I agree that the jerseys suck but that guy is trying to hard to sound intelligent. The target audience is sports fans and a lot of those words go right over their heads.

re: SIAP: Grantland Article on Jerseys


Lol at the OMG IT'S A UNIFORM responses.

This board was fvcking litered with people pre-cuming themselves over the jersey releases. Now since they suck everyone is all "so what it's a fvcking uniform".

Well played guys.

Did someone also say they don't know what Grantland is?
