HIGH CLASS: In Jacksonville, Vito Stellino writes not only did Jaguars Owner Shahid Khan spend “$3 million upgrading the locker room with more renovations to come, but he has the team traveling in style on wide-body planes.” Coach Mike Mularkey said, “All those things have made a difference. Players recognize it. Even flying on a bigger plane. It goes a long way with the players. It’s just showing what we’re doing to be a first-class organization for us first and other people who will recognize what is going on here. He’s doing everything first class.” He added that the players “didn’t know about the change until they arrived at the airport for the trip to New Orleans” (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 8/23).
COLOR CHANGING: CBSSPORTS.com’s Royce Young cited photos posted on SportsLogos.net as indicating that the Knicks “might be tweaking their uniforms a tad." The Knicks appear “to be removing the black from their jerseys and adding silver in place of it.” The team also has “a new alternate logo at the top of the uniform as well” (CBSSPORTS.com, 8/22).
