    The set after these (Kellen Clemens era) was solid. These uniforms? They were ok. Not bad, but not good. Oregon's uniforms are always so close to being good, for me. All of their uniforms for the last decade or so have been a few tweaks away from being good. It's always close, but no cigar. I loved the Clemens set because it was simply green and yellow. No black, no carbon, no volt, just the school colors showcased in a good modern design. The only modern set, save the most recent Fighting Ducks set, that I felt they got completely right.

    I was seriously coming here to post about this. Maybe it's me being a 90's kid and just being used to Denver wearing navy at home, but I don't like 'em in orange. It's not that it looks bad, it's more that I think the navy just looked better (at least when paired with white pants and not monochrome).

    I share the same thought regarding the facemask, Josh. I mean, if I read "maroon helmet with black facemask" on paper, it'd sound bad. But looking at it in action, I think it actually works really well. The black doesn't stand out in a bad way at all like some make it out to do. It blends well with the helmet. Anyways, another unpopular opinion I'll add: Though my favorite Saints set will always be the inagurals, I think these were just as great: Of course the one change I'd have made would be to match the pant and helmet stripes, but everything else is beautiful. Love the Louisiana logo on the sleeve (it really should be on the current sleeves, I say), love how the white numbers look with that set (provides, in my opinion, a great balance of color), and I prefer the single white outlined fleur-de-lis on the helmet to the current multiple outlined one. Much cleaner. I suppose I could also nominate this for the "Uniforms That Should Be Thrown Back To" thread, as I don't recall these ever being dusted off for a game.

    I'm with you actually. I think this is the best the Gophers have ever looked.

    Love the design, hate the bland, cliche color scheme. Those uniforms would look sharp in red, black, and yellow. Change the home number to red outlined in gold and change the "ATL" on the red alts to "ATLANTA", and that'll be the perfect Hawks set.

    Eric Dickerson's goggles-neck roll-mouthpiece-elbow pads combo!

    You know what's funny, Barkley has never looked that strange to me in a Rockets uniform. I was much too young to really pay any attention to basketball when he was in Phoenix, so Houston was the first team I really associated him with. Now, retrospectually? Phoenix is his "right" uniform, but I still think of Houston right with Phoenix when thinking of Barkley.

    I like this Grizzlies logo a lot more than the current (note: sans-wordmark!): On a side note, I wonder how a black-brown-red color scheme using this logo would have worked for Memphis. Definitely would be rather unique for Memphis, and would have separated from the Vancouver days without deviating drastically. It'd have been interesting, I think.

    I've always thought a good "bridge" of sorts between the present and past would've been to inverse the colors of the current "Twins" script to navy outlined in red. Put that on the front of the primary homes, remove the front number, then do the same color change to the back number. In that move, it'd look more like an update to the throwback while still retaining the present. Oh, and I, too, miss the road pins. Liked them a lot better than the current road.

    First picture I've ever seen of Frank Robinson in an Angels uniform:

    I was talking specifically about the current roads, rather than the identity as a whole. It's almost as if, with the red cap brim, undershirts, and socks (not to mention the red-dominant homes as well), they want to be a red team. The navy crown, however, gives off this idea that they're clinging by the fingertips to navy. I just figure they might as well let navy go at this point and throw the red cap onto the roads to finish it off, but alas, the navy crown's still there. The result isn't so much a red-navy balance to me personally as it is "RED!...but we kinda like navy too...maybe." Not sure if I explained that as well, but that's what I was referring to.

    What I humbly think is the best Nats uniform: I had always wanted them to tweak the home colors to match, and was dissapointed when they added more red eventually instead. Not sure why, but I just loved this look. Loved the prominence of navy (helped to separate from the Angels-esque home), loved the script, loved the gold touches on the script and numbers, and just thought it was a sharp uniform. It especially looked great with navy high socks, as depicted by Soriano here. The current roads aren't bad, but the apparent blue-red indecision the look gives off is rather annoying. It also gives off a somewhat Braves-vibe, which as a division foe isn't too good. The inagural roads were much more distinct, in that particular regard.

    Yep. The high socks add color to the uniform and personally, despite me being younger than most here, high socks/stirrups is just baseball to me. Probably has to do with the fact that I'm an avid baseball historian and love the Golden Age of baseball, but hey. This could probably fall under an unpopular opinion: the view of what a baseball uniform is today by people my age kind of bugs me, come to think of it. I remember my junior year of high school (about three years ago), when I played varsity ball, my coach made it mandatory for every player to wear the full-legged pajama style. There wasn't too much opposition, but it sure bugged the crap out of me, especially being someone who wore high socks from little league and up. I preferred everything old-school - heck, I refused to even wear batting gloves. Then we had the chance to vote on an alternate uniform, and had the option of 70's throwback (pullover and all!), or basically our home whites but in our secondary color. I was the lone vote for the throwback and the lazy recolor won because "throwbacks look ridiculous". Ugh...from a uniform-junkie standpoint, I hate my generation! P.S: As if my uniform experience didn't grind my gears enough, my team got a new coach the very year after I graduated who made high socks mandatory and introduced new throwback-inspired uniforms. Missed it by that much.

    Kings best look You know, the Kings are a tough case for me personally. I think each identity they have had is no better or worse than the other. They looked great in purple and gold. The looked/look great in black and silver. They looked great in purple and black. I guess they're one of those select few teams that "got it right" every time.

    I guess the unpopularity of my opinion has been verified! Haha I will agree with you on the wing-sleeved originals though, Mockba. Those were really great.
