We know we’re in the thick of it with the NFL season, waiting to see which teams are going to punch their tickets to the playoffs, but something more important is going on: NBA teams are unveiling their alternate City Edition jerseys for the season. Some of them have put us to sleep and made us shake our head in disappointment – we’re looking at you, Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks. But any team that has yet to unveil their uniforms should just quietly release them, because nobody is going to top the Miami Heat. The ‘Vice Wave’ has hit Miami and the end result is fantastic – good enough for us to order one, even if we don’t identify as Miami fans. A+ to this design team for giving the fans everything they didn’t know they wanted in jersey.
For anyone still unsure, the Fan Controlled Football League puts fans in control – which absolutely includes team colors, logos, and jerseys. So will the fans bring it in the first season of the FCFL? Abso-freaking-lutely. In this league, bragging rights won’t stop just at who wins each game – they will also include best name, best color scheme, best jersey, best draft, etc. – you get the idea. We know our fans are competitive, so we’re completely confident that will carry over to the planning process. For some fans, we’re sure calling plays will just be the icing on the cake after creating their team’s brand from the ground up. One thing’s for sure – we know the fans will come up with something better than Dallas’ design for their team!
