Diamondbacks complete the failure of their uniform branding

Remember when the Diamondbacks unveiled their new uniforms last offseason? We all hated it.

Then this offseason they announced changes to it because some of the design elements just didn’t work?

Well they no longer can salvage anything that can be salvageable. Two caps that were supposed to be part of the repackaged look have now been eliminated.

The gradient cap becomes the new primary. And based on this photo, the sold black cap and the solid red cap are no longer out of the rotation. Yes, seven caps was already a lot but the team removing these two caps means that the attempt at branding has reached its final failure.

The new Athletics road cap looks even worse in action

Scott Kazmir wears the new A’s road cap.

The Oakland Athletics played their first road game of the season on Monday and with that, they wore their new road caps. Unlike the road cap of years past, this one featured white lettering with a gold trim.

Donte Whitner not happy with Bills reporter taking shot at Colin Kaepernick’s style

Colin Kaepernick’s fashion style isn’t bad. But some people can’t take it.

Following the 49ers’ 23-10 win over the Panthers, Colin Kaepernick met with the media in the above outfit. If you’ve seen Kaepernick, you know that such kind of an outfit is the norm for him.

But of course, since his starting NFL debut last season, old school reporters don’t like it. With the backwards cap, the tattoos and the “urban” look, he’s been a target of many. He doesn’t fit the mold of the old generation, which some people hold on to.

A Bills writer decided to voice his anger about it. (He would later delete it probably because he knew he was a fool for tweeting that.)
