The updated away jersey features a white torso in the shape of a star with the old-school Western Conference logo in the center. Black and pink piping separates the bottom of the torso and the sleeves, which are covered in a neon blue The home jerseys, which belong to the Eastern Conference in this instance, feature a black star-shaped torso with neon pink and blue piping and a white accent at the bottom of the torso and sleeves. ⭐️ Inspired by … [Read more...] about 2023 NHL All-Star Game: Grading the Reverse Retro jerseys

Getty Images The year is 2029. Graham Potter's vibrant Chelsea side are once more sweeping all ahead of them, swashbuckling in attack but with the defensive instincts that only come through years together on the training ground. Yet another Champions League is seemingly within reach for this side, who, for what feels like a generation, have grown together into a footballing force. That, perhaps, is the end vision underpinning Chelsea's radical new approach to the management of contracts at Stamford Bridge. In an era of dwindling patience and fast fixes, the Todd Boehly-led consortium that took control last summer are building a squad for the long term, whether they like it or not.
