  1. Uninspired and "too corporate", what does that even mean? That's what I'm talking about when I say it is irrationally hated, along with calling it a pigeon even though it looks like an actual penguin.


    And you're worried about taking another team's established look?




    Yeah. Anyway, the PITTSBURGH jersey is sort of a throwback to the Penguins original uniforms. It should be their alternate now, even if it has the skating penguin logo on the shoulders. And the triangle penguin should be their secondary logo like it was at the beginning of the vegas gold era.




    But I know that will never happen.


    I just hope they use the 90s uniforms as throwbacks when they retire Jagr's number. Otherwise I don't think it will ever be used by this ownership group. 



  2. This one isn't really forgotten, it's more irrationally hated by Penguins fans. The team itself seems to have no interest in these uniforms so they'll probably be lost to history




    But there's no reason why this hasn't been used since the 90s




  3. That USA Olympics number font looks exactly like the Magic number font, although no Magic player wore a 9 or a 6 before Summer 1996. It makes me wonder what the Magic 9 and 6 actually looked like in the 90s.


    Tim Kempton, where are you? We need to see your Magic jerseys. 

  4. One player wore a 9 during that uniform era - Tim Kempton in wore #9 for 3 games November 1997. Basketball Reference says Gerald Wilkins wore #9 in 1996-97, but all the Getty images from that season are #21.  


    And no one wore a 6



  5. There is a ton of love for the Shaq era Orlando Magic uniforms, and any throwback uniform the Magic wear will be from that era. Even their current identity is inspired by those uniforms. On the other hand, the T-Mac era uniforms seem to be totally forgotten. 






    Which basically means that they will probably never wear a throwback version of them, which is so unfortunate.


    What other uniforms are in this situation?

    Needs more orange to be a great Flyers’ jersey, unless there’s a really good reason for them to look like a black and white team from the stands.


    The really good reason is that it's an alternate (or it was supposed to be). This is the main uniform
