  1. Huh. Hadn't noticed the remaining silver in the logo.
  2. I don't get the point of having the home pants be silver but then not having the color anywhere else in any of the uniforms. It looks like you're trying to de-emphasize silver; perhaps you should just remove it entirely for this concept?
  3. Getting in ahead of the curve...Jaguars concept

    Yours has the distinction of being better than what they are coming from for sure and also likely better than what they'll be unveiling tomorrow. Great job!
  4. An Untalented Paint User's Take On The NBA

    I like this, but start your own thread.
  5. An Untalented Paint User's Take On The NBA

    Eh...that isn't where I'd put it...looks too much like the diamond pattern you used for the Nets. Maybe red trim around the logo and number? Of course, it's your series. Yes, you should take off the front number on the Heat jerseys, but otherwise I love them. They look fantastic.

    I like that you weren't afraid to use volt green. I do think it needs some red though.

    Booooooooriiiiiiiiing.
  8. Unpopular Opinions

    Me too. I liked the Cardinals' BoB logo even though I'm an Ohioan and the Cards are a chief rival of the Reds, the team I grew up watching and listening to on the radio. I also rooted heavily for the Orioles against the Indians in the 1996 ALDS and 1997 ALCS. Would've rooted for the Jays too had they ever been in the playoffs. (1994 was the first year I followed MLB at all, and the strike that wiped out that year's World Series weighed heavily on my psyche...till the next season.) Problem is, the Yankees and (home) Tigers have had navy and white on lockdown for decades. Even if the Padres kept their mediocre current look for 20 more years, they'd still be have only the third-longest tenure in those colors minus any other in MLB (longest in NL, but still)...plus, when you add in those that pair navy with a secondary color, the list encompasses practically half of MLB. Brown is unique. The Padres are the only MLB team of their lifetime to feature it. It blows my mind that they'd rather blend in. As with navy and white (Padres), red and black is generally a boring, generic color scheme. The Devils can share it with Chicago (granted the Blackhawks have lots of other colors in their logo) and Carolina, or they can choose to stand out. As for the Mariners, I don't understand how anyone could think their blasé "M's" set was all that great, but they at least had some decent logos before it. I think navy and "northwest green" suit them better though.
  9. Sounds good except for the flat helmet finish...and even that can look good, it just doesn't usually.
  10. Logos And Uniforms That Are So Ugly They’re Awesome

    I would like the helmet and jersey and pants to be the basis for the Rams' next set. Just pair white pants with the yellow jersey and yellow pants with the white jersey, and blue socks with both. Also this combo is the best the Bucs wear right now. No matte pewter pants, yes shiny pewter numbers, less jersey clutter. I would not call either uni pictured here "so bad it's good" because neither is bad enough. I WOULD say that Tampa's busy techno-nightmare and L.A.'s mismatched assortment of threads - that is, the uniforms they usually wear - are bad enough for this thread, but I don't see how they can be considered "good".
  11. Also this, from Super Bowl XVII:
  12. *Cowboys in white vs. Chiefs in red is a good one *I agree with @neo_prankster that Dolphins-Bills back in the day was a good matchup, but I'll take it a step further and say it was good no matter who wore what, and still looks good today *The Dolphins and Rams both complemented tons of opponents' looks back in the day but they are not nearly as good-looking today
  13. Biggest Downgrades in History

    The Astros, have you seen the women at Astros games? The organization ought to be ashamed, really - terrible, terrible women, ugly as sin. Also all that railroad imagery in the stadium - pathetic, old, washed-up stuff. Why does no stadium have a private-jet theme? That's a fantastic idea, could make for an incredible venue! ...okay, fine I'll stop.
  14. Biggest Downgrades in History

    Um...whats with the gold? With the Astros it at least *used to be* a team color.
  15. Logos And Uniforms That Are So Ugly They’re Awesome

    The Jags' set was good aside from the helmet. I think a lot of us have already accepted that. I don't hate the Titans' new look - it is what it is. Can't imagine the Browns' current look ever being looked back on in a positive way though. Not with the pants-wordmark. That's like a giant poo stain on the whole thing.
  16. Biggest Downgrades in History

    Wait...is that supposed to be an Astros jersey?
  17. Meh. I like lettuce-tomato-pickle-onion on my burger. That's still a lot more plain and traditional than Tennessee's new getup though.
  18. Biggest Downgrades in History

    I can't believe I'm saying this, because I loved the Orange Crush uniforms and still miss them to this day, but...that was more of a lateral move than a true downgrade. The new look wasn't as aesthetically pleasing to my eyes or many others, but it looked sharp and modern. It still works well enough today too. Now, as for the redesigns it has inspired, yes, a lot of them are awful at worst and totally unnecessary at best.
  19. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    Also, can someone clear something up for me?: Is the whole helmet metallic in finish, or is it only the facemask?
  20. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    I'm not confusing them for the Titans - but I grew up playing football games on computers and consoles back in the age before the games showed logos on helmets - so two teams in the same division having basically the same home helmet-jersey-pants color combo doesn't feel right to me, because on an old-school 16-bit game they actually could be mistaken for each other, and even if not, having that much similarity is too much. And yes, they are rivals - not archrivals but rivals nonetheless. You don't play in the same division for 16 straight seasons without some kind of rivalry developing. Plus...1/4 of the league wears dark blue jerseys as their primary non-white option. None wear light blue. Why would they not want to distinguish themselves more?
  21. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    Also, forgot to mention this, but...dark blue helmet over dark blue jersey over white pants? I'd think they would want to do more to distinguish themselves visually from the Texans, but maybe the metallic finish on the helmet will help with that. Still think it would have been a perfect chance to go for light blue as the main jersey.
  22. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    My reaction exactly. Better helmet, not enough light blue, those half-side panels are crap, I actually like the number font and the idea of the shoulder-sword but feel like it may be too much light color on a dark jersey...doesn't look bad in the photos but might in different lighting. Also, I read the helmet has a metallic finish? Is it kind of like the Giants' metal-flake? If so that's good...but again, seeing it in different kinds of light will show how much difference it makes. If it's anything like New York's, it'll be great. But I feel like that stupid underarm thing is gonna be every bit as bad as the irritating side panels that the Bengals and Patriots wear.
  23. Biggest Downgrades in History

    Meh. It's still brown. Beats the crap out of the...well, crap they wear now.
  24. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I wish they had kept the white hat, and used more teal and/or copper. A set that had a lot of potential pretty quickly became rather boring, at least to me.
