  1. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Matt Ryan's rookie season was the last year Atlanta had this rare black third jersey (Starting in 2009, they changed the black jersey to a retro throwback look they've used since) ATL used this as an occasional uniform from 2003-2008 and Ryan only wore this twice (home games vs. TB/CAR)
  2. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Bryant Young of the San Francisco 49ers. He wore the classic 49ers uniform for only 3 games in 1994 and the 1995 season. The rest of his career was when the 49ers wore their 1996-2008 style uni (updated shade of red, more of a number outline). He retired in 2007, the second to last year before the 49ers went back to the future with their uniforms.
  3. Uniform matchups that never happened

    We've seen a lot of instances of rare uniform matchups, but sometimes there are instances when certain jerseys coincide, but we never see them matched up head-to-head. The one I remember the most was the 1997 Jets (last year of the horizontal logo era dating back to the 80s before they went retro in 1998) and the 1997 Broncos (first year post-Orange unis), but here's a few other examples: The shortened 1995 NHL season had some instances of 'First year uniforms vs. last year uniforms' that never met due to no interconference games: The Capitals changed their look for 1995-96 while the Flames/Blues had new unis for this season. Having actually found the original 1994-95 pre lockout NHL schedule, Washington and Calgary were scheduled to play on November 1st/March 7th, Washington and St. Louis on October 25/February 6)
  4. Uniform matchups that never happened

    The Saints 1986-1995 uniforms of the Dome Patrol era never played Miami when they had the 1987-1996 aqua uniforms. Miami and New Orleans played three times in that era all at New Orleans with the Saints wearing black.
  5. 2017 NFL Season

    I'm usually the guy who's excited for every football season. But not this year. My interest for this season is it an all-time low. It's basically gonna be 4.5 months of false hope before Brady/Belichick win another joyless SB trophy. Seriously, after hearing all NBA season about how THE WARRIORS ARE RUINING BASKETBALL, you don't hear anyone say the Patriots are ruining football. I mean, the AFC is basically 'Why bother?' Brady and Belichick have singlehandedly sucked the fun out of football for me more than anyone thinks Durant ruined basketball. The NFL is so watered down that its top player is a freaking 40 year old geezer. Might as well stand for National Foxboro League. It's New England and 31 others at this point. Wake me up when the parade is over.
  6. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Carl Crawford's final season with the Rays (2010) was the first year the team wore these light blue alternates
  7. 2017 MLB Season

    The Astros have fallen and we're waiting for them to get up
  8. Alternate SPORTS! History Thread

    2012 NLDS- what if the Reds win one of those last 3 games? Who wins a Reds/Cardinals NLCS and how do they do in a World Series against the Tigers? Even if the Giants win in 2014, would we look at them differently if they win 2 titles in 5 years instead of 3?
  9. Rare team matchups

    Again, no game action pics, but 1991 was the only year/time these sets matched up (Padres/Expos)
  10. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    2 examples of this with the Texas Rangers: Josh Hamilton's first year in Texas (2008) was the last year they wore the home RANGERS jerseys. The following year, their home unis were overhauled to the TEXAS look they still have today Rafael Palmeiro wore that uniform in only one of his 10 seasons with the Rangers (1999).
  11. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Robb Nen in the Giants 1994-1999 uniform set
  12. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Technically, two seasons: 2000 and 2001. Berkman played his Astro prime when they only had one alternate jersey (the red one), hence the rarity. In 2000 and 2001, the Astros had a boatload of different uniforms
  13. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Lance Berkman briefly wore this black uniform that the Astros had in 2000-2001 as a rare alternate
  14. 2017 MLB Season

    Has ANYTHING gone right for the SF Giants since the 9th inning in game 4 against the Cubs last October?
  15. NFL WAH games that could've happened but didn't

    You'd think Seattle against Dallas at one point would have busted out WAH with the old Cowboy blue jersey jinx.
  16. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Dennis Eckersley 2nd stint with the Red Sox- 1998, his final year as a player. In his first stint from 1978-1984, the Red Sox did not wear uniforms with names on the back
  17. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Jim Breech, who spent 13 seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, kicked one year for the Oakland Raiders in 1979
  18. Rare team matchups

    Surprisingiy rare: These Lions and Vikings uniforms only coincided 3 years and only 6 such games Not only was that rare, but also their 2003 meeting here was the last time the Metrodome had astroturf as well.
  19. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Stanley Morgan, who played 13 seasons with the Patriots and is still the all-time recieving yardage leader in franchise history, as an Indianapolis Colt in his final season (1990)
  20. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Rickey Jackson was the only member of the Saints Dome Patrol that wore a Saints uni that didn't have the Louisiana patch on the shoulders (The uniform design most remembered from the Jim Mora glory days debuted in 1986, the year Mills/Swilling/Vaughan Johnson joined Rickey in New Orleans). He was a holdover from the Bum Phillips years, thus he wore the old Saints uni design
  21. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Bruce Armstrong, longtime Patriots offensive lineman, played only one season in the Belichick Era Pats uniforms- his last one in 2000

  24. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Rod Strickland played nearly 5 years in Washington, but technically only one season as a Bullet.
  25. Is the NHL so watered down that a freaking rookie goalie has 2 Cups? I mean, seriously, what happened to the days of legendary goalies? From Roy and Fuhr to Hasek and Belfour to..... Matt Murray, whom would probably be a sieve if he played behind Arizona/Winnipeg.
