the Haslam's son-in-law J.W. Johnson just tweeted: 

"Who is ready to see the new uniforms?"

I bet that when he was a kid they let him ring the bell on the fire truck on the way to the fire.

How 'bout this response - Sure, fire away, we're not depressed enough with the coronavirus.  Let's see what your mother-in-law came up with. -

Personally I find Brownie's choice of blackface highly questionable...

As I get to say occasionally... I believe I had that one...

It looks like a photo negative to me.

Dolphins can be very tough, they take on sharks all the time and sharks back down from them. 

There are documented cases of dolphins saving people who were being attacked by sharks. 

Concurrent with the mating/nesting season, male Northern Cardinals experience a marked increase in hormone levels. At this time they become very territorial and will attack any intruders they feel are a threat to the brood.

 

Saints aren't tough?

True, but why do they have to be tough in the first place?

Logos can symbolize things that are majestic or held in high esteem as well.

The elf doesn't even do that.

Well...they are, after all, supposedly named after Joe Lewis....the Brown Bomber.....Brown because of the color of his skin.  Why shouldn't they have a logo with a black face?  Besides.....who says it is "blackface".  It may just be a black...i.e. African American face.    Can't a fictional elf be black? 

After all, they have black Barbies.

It's not a race issue (I don't think anyway).

When I made the initial comment it was, 'Does the elf look fucked up from the neck up?'.   I couldn't really tell WHAT was wrong.  But apparently they made the face the same color as the hat.  Which was pretty 'Haslam' (Haslem meaning dumb).

It's not a race issue. There was no need to second guess yourself.

All the teams' draft hats are black. All the team graphics use the same, new "neon" look.

Just turned out in our case to be an unfortunate pairing.

...so I have to let the Haslam's off the hook?   Grrrrrr

They're the default response...

The helmet use to be a nice soft orange.  Then they 'modernized' it to be this day-glow thing we've had.  The natural progression brings us to a glow-in-the-dark orange helmet with a face mask of brown & orange hash marks.

The name on the sides is embroidered, but that (UGH!) front logo is done in silicone. Hell, there are folks on this board who may have done better with a caulking gun! LOL

I'm down to watching classic Indians and college football games......and cleaning up my desk and files.    

And we finally got Netflix.

I go down youtube astrophysics rabbit holes.....which are usually well over my head.  Occasionally I understand some of it.  :)

To uniforms:  How about brown jerseys with white numbers, worn with white or orange pants.  And white jerseys with brown numbers, worn with white or orange pants.  Take the orange jerseys and the brown pants and incinerate them.  :)

I guess they fancy it's like the ND leprechaun or something; it's far worse.

Ahhh, no, I'm gonna cherish fat Freddie and his ridiculous giant orange hoodie for the rest of my life. He/it was in no way embarrassing.

I figure to spend much more time fishing this year, so I'm cleaning my fly tying area, fly lines, & re-organizing my fly boxes & tackle boxes to get ready. I've already moved from chaos to "so THAT'S where I put that thing!" Next is to sit there & actually tie some new flies.

If we can't go to the stadium this fall, I can at least enjoy some deep fried bluegill filets.
