NBL uniform changes

I really do think after watching tonight's match the NBL should bring in a rule that the home team wears the white uniform.

For starters, I prefer Adelaide's white to their blue strip, but it also gives supporters a bit of variety.

With the current rule, all home games for all teams will look the same with the home team in colour and the away team in white.

This is not an issue for the hardcore basketball fan, but if you want to attract non-basketball fans to the game. They need to know Perth are red, NZ are black, Townsville are green, Cairns are orange etc.

I may sound petty, but I think this is something that needs to be changed.

If Adelaide want to go blue - hand out the t-shirts at the door NBA style!

What are your thoughts?

How about all teams just play in the one colour?

I think the world has much bigger issues Boti. It's been this way for a while and hasnt really caused any issues. I think most fans know who their team is playing against, it's not like we have too many teams in the league.

If you bought a 36ers membership you received a blue t shirt.

I like the Breakers Black/Blue Home White/Blue Away

I'd rather go to the game and see my Sixers in blue, rather than white. What's the point in having the crowd be a sea of blue if the team they are supporting is wearing white?
Would rather it that the opposition wear their normal strip, unless the colours clash. Wollongong and Perth are really the only teams that clash. Maybe Sydney and Adelaide with Purple and blue.
Our white strip looks great, but the Sixers are blue and should wear it at home. I used to like Perth in black back in the Grace, Vlahov days, their clash should be black, not white. Would like to see Sydney in yellow again.

Was thinking about this last night.

I'd like to see:

Adelaide: Home Blue, Away White, Alternate Yellow (to be used on 5 or so occasions per year)
Melbourne: Home Red, Away Yellow
Wollongong: Home Red, Away White
Perth: Home Black (return to the 2000 days!), Away White, Alternate Red
NZ: Home Black, Away White, Alternate Light Blue
Cairns: Home Orange, Away White, Alternate Black
Townsville: Home Green, Away White, Alternate Blue
Sydney: Home Purple, Away Yellow, Alternate White

A little more variation!

if you want to change anything uniform related, bring back individual team designs not league wide templates.

What Josh said.

The template is boring as hell. Surely And One are capable of producing individual designs.

I also think having just the teams city on away strips. So Sixers would simply read Adelaide across the front for away game, same as NBA.

NBL had white for the home teams back in the day. Then some tard decided to change it.
