    To celebrate 50 years, you don't have to go back 50 years.

    I dont like:
    - The shade of red
    - The two-tone key and semi-circle (especially a white key)
    - Brightly colored perimeter
    - Minimilastic center court logo
    - All lower-case lettering
    - The Moda Center seats and the court will have an awkward two-tone red color contrast.

    I know some of these things are "classic" but I also think its tacky and that the organization was right to move away from these types of stylings. I dont have any nostalgic feelings so this is simply based off aesthetic and my taste.

    I predict that the jerseys contrasting with the bright colors won’t make it seem as bright. Great retro look. Lowe is going to be all over this one.

    Good news for you, you only have to look at it for 1 year.

    Bad news for everyone else, we only get to look at it for 1 year.

    The shade of red is my only gripe. Rest of it I absolutely love.

    My only gripe is the Moda center logo. I wish they would have put the old RG/Rose Quarter emblem.

    wasn't it the outline of the RG at one time?

    Edit: this one

    I'm sure that the red in the picture will be the same red they have used in the court last year.

    Since it's in a grey and blue setting now (seats being the blue), the color might look odd.

    See, I think you're trippin' about the shade of red. It's the same red, it only looks different because of the amount of white.

    Need this somewhere on our jerseys. In the right orientation.

    I really like the PGA patch they wore last year, I hope it sticks for good.

    Yeah I like the concept of that logo at center court but I hate the color design.

    I like that the color design is very 70s...….back when red and white were the predominant color themes...they definitely went old school with this design
