Subtle change to new Sixers' jerseys has fans seeing red

Subtle change to new Sixers' jerseys has fans seeing red

The Sixers unveiled two of their new Nike uniforms for the 2017-2018 season and they're very similar to last year's Adidas jerseys but some fans are seeing red.

In addition to the StubHub sponsorship patch on the jersey, there were a few other changes.

"Brotherly Love” is embroidered on the lower left hem in gold lettering which is a welcomed addition.

It was the red drop shadow to the white letters and numbers on the front of the jersey that some fans aren't in love with.

Surprisingly, more people seemed upset with the red drop shadow than with the addition of a sponsor to an iconic jersey.

My personal take? I don't hate the red drop shaddow but I do think I prefered the previous jersey with the all white number/lettering sans the red behind it. 

If you aren't in love with either of today's looks, the team will unveil two more jerseys at a later date.

This is ... this is just embarrassing.

Maybe we'd be better off with Joe Lunchpail from the 700 level running Washington.

And Tony Williams should know better as he represents parts of South and West Philadelphia in his senate district.

We can probably give the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, a pass? Maybe? 

I don't know. This is just bad form.

This video from KYW's Mike DeNardo comes from an opening of a grocery store in the Grays Ferry section of Philadelphia. The politicos were trying to show some team spirit with the Eagles hosting the Vikings this week in the NFC Championship game. Hopefully, that game goes much better than this horrific chant attempt.

Be prepared.

That’s the Boy Scout's motto, but it’s also the motto for the Philadelphia Police Department heading into this weekend’s NFC Championship Game at the Linc between the Eagles and Vikings.

Win or lose, there’s going to be a big reaction from fans once the game goes final and one of the locations the police expect a lot of activity is in the area of Frankford and Cottman Avenues.

Here’s the notice that was sent two days ago that was posted on the Mayfair Civic Association Facebook Page.

Hopefully the fans will be out in full force to celebrate after the game this Sunday, but either way, we hope no people, property, or horses are harmed. However, it’s good to take these steps to be ready.
