    After seeing how Nike has designed the Vapor F.U.S.E. template for Texans and the Patriots, I’m wondering by they even decided to do that crazy “V” cut on teams, that don’t have shoulder stripes, and pushes any word marking way down?

    I was under the impression the red jerseys were only worn on Canada Day. Shows how much attention I pay to the Toronto Blue Jays. Even the tiniest bit of red entitles you to go balls-out red, I guess.

    Hope the Cubs don’t do it. But I’ve noticed red spikes and compression sleeves on them. That’s Cardinals shit.

    Yeah that’s crazy, it’s almost like red is one of the Cubs’ official colours…………………

    Align the shape of the District properly, and that sticker shows a curly 3 that’s way better than the Nats’ actual number font.

    Did the Blue Jays ditch the grey Toronto road uniforms, are they ignoring the 4+1 rule, or is the Canada Day uni considered their City Connect? I can’t recall seeing he greys at all this season.

    Even San Diego Wave would sell a black kit if it could become “urbanwear.” #BFBS — with the emphasis on #BS.
