    College Football uniforms- 2018

    The Shark is a good idea for Ole Miss, but that mascot is waaaay too creepy. It's just a bit too realistic.

    NFL 2018 changes

    I'm not sure I really understand this idea, especially coming from a member of a sports logos and uniforms board. No decorative elements of football uniforms have any purpose, but they're still important in giving teams an identity.

    NHL 2017-18

    The stick in the rink logo is lame. It hardly reads as a "C" like it is supposed to, and the scale of the stick and the rink is so distorted that the meaning is barely there anyways. The orca, while not perfect, is miles better.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Wow, what a pointless change. Also, that dark shade of grey being paired with Navy is just plain stupid.

    2018 NFL Redesigns (19/32)

    The Bengals helmet is genius, I can't believe that I have never thought about the before.

    NFL 2018 changes

    My problem with your argument is the sweeping generalizations that you're making. It's one thing to want a white outline around the numbers, but saying that colored numbers on colored jerseys is a bad design choice is ridiculous. Sure, white would provide for greater contrast but it's really your personal preference as there's nothing illegible about that uniform.

    ECHL Newfoundland Growlers Unveil Name, Logo, Colours

    We need more non-bulldog canine mascots in sports, so I appreciate the route they took with this.

    Pittsburgh Steelers Unveil 1979 Throwback Uniform

    I'd be really interested in seeing a modern take on this sleeve length. Imagine a jersey like this one in the photo where the sleeves of the undershirt are just an extension of the jersey. I feel like if they were as formfitting as they are in this photo than they wouldn't affect performance much, but admittedly I never played football so I wouldn't know for sure. I'd imagine it could be useful for some of the colder weather games at least. It's probably not realistic but it would be interesting to see if it could be pulled off.

    Rockets Uniform Changes

    To me, the Rockets are an odd case where they have never truly had a good identity over their entire history. While the red and yellow is classic, that set was really unspectacular and not deserving of being thrown back to in this new set. I'd like to see something totally new for them.

    Stetson University Unveils New Athletic Logo

    It's clever and pretty well-designed overall, but I almost feel like it's too edgy for Stetson. With a name like Hatters, I feel like you almost are obligated to play it a bit more fun than what they went with here.

    Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    Those light blue helmets are really tacky IMO, I can't believe that they're getting so much praise. Outside of what we got, I would have really liked to see silver helmets before light blue.

    Regional Bank Merger Logo Redesign - Hancock Whitney

    I really dig the "WH" monogram in the center. It's sleek and modern, yet still clearly readable. That said, they clearly were afraid of losing some of that charm from the past, so they crammed it into a vintage-style roundel with the slab serif typeface. As a result, it's not cohesive and the two parts are really conflicting with each other.

    Why do people hate unique uniforms

    But what's really the difference between a "gimmick" vs. a unique design trait? I feel like people sometimes call something new a gimmick when really it's really just something that hasn't been used in a sports uniform before. For example, there was a large debate in one of the Nike NFL threads that any number font outside of block was gimmicky. Even in your own example of the Coyotes vs. the Islanders, I don't see much difference between the two except for the fact that the Coyotes' designs were executed more successfully.

    Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Why is it so bad that the Nike logo is used to add color to the uniform? If it's going to be there either way, they might as well utilize it effectively.

    Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    I worked at a store that sold Tennessee-inspired merchandise last year and I thought that our designer said something about that, but looking into it now, I don't see anything about it's proper use being restricted anywhere so it looks like I may have been wrong about that actually. I do think that the correct alignment could work and follow the natural movement of the logo if they decided to use it that way, and it would reinforce the idea of none of the three regions (east, middle, west) being placed "higher" than the other.
