  1. A companion series to "Players in the 'wrong' uniforms" and "Players on the right team but wrong uniform"...this is about players who spent most of their careers in crappy unis. Obviously the poster boy here is Tom Brady. But there are others. There must be others.

    I don't even like paneled caps normally, but I agree with you on pinwheels. The Expos' pinwheel was so cool, and the Nats are the successor to the Expos, so it only makes sense that Washington should be the one to revive the look.

    I'd have to see that for myself - but I love how bubbly and playful the font is. For what it's worth, I also like their unique habit of wearing sleeve numbers.

    I can see how that would be an improvement. Just wish they'd go back to old gold.
  5. Blue has more "hate it" reactions than brown does. It's just my guess - but I do think brown supporters are more passionate about it than blue supporters are, and thus more likely to hate the other primary option.
  6. This may be the best Padres concept I've ever seen.
  7. It seems like the people who prefer blue consider brown too far out for them to buy a shirt but don't actively dislike it due to its historical association with the team. Meanwhile, those who prefer brown tend to hate the blue (especially blue and white) because they view it as lazy and derivative. Admittedly I'm extrapolating people's motivations, but given how vocal the "bring back brown!" crowd seems to be, my hypothesis probably has some validity to it. I personally would be okay with brown being paired with plain yellow, yellow-gold, orange, sand/khaki, sky blue, or pretty much any two of the above. The only way I'm cool with blue is if they bring back orange and/or sand/khaki.
  8. Didn't the Pads wear 1235 at first but switch to true yellow by the time of their 1984 NL title? The yellow looks very...well, yellow. Whereas the OG Padres from the '70s almost look like they're wearing Volunteer orange as a secondary. Or maybe it's difference in photographic equipment or the difference perceived when orange comes in as the tertiary color.
  9. That does look good. I'm cool a shade like that, with hints of orange, not far from metallic gold.
  10. Gold-gold, or yellow-gold?

    I'm probably going to get killed for this, but... I like the Phillies' number font.
  12. Perhaps. I just don't think brown and yellow look that good together. I always thought the old-school Cleveland Browns had a great color scheme and balance. I think the brown-and-orange Padres looked good too, if a bit generic. The late-'90s Padres, with their navy and orange, also looked great. Heck, they even looked good with brown-yellow-orange all together. For whatever reason, I've never thought that highly of the Pads' brown-yellow look though. Or Wyoming's, which tends to overuse yellow and underuse brown. Has anyone considered just brown and white? The Padres seem to like plain looks, and wouldn't it be more historically accurate regarding the old Catholic friars? The simple scheme has always worked well for Saint Bonaventure's.
  13. Western Michigan University does that. I don't think it looks all that great, personally.
  14. The Padres have never worn brown and gold, so not sure why the fans seem to pre- OH, you mean Brown and yellow! Seriously, though, I'm a little bummed orange is out. My unpopular opinion: whether they go with brown (as they should) or with blue, orange looks better as a secondary color than yellow does.
  15. The BFBS fad in MLB passed. It's still going strong everywhere else, unfortunately. Especially the NBA and college sports.
  16. Oooh. Sneaky-good one there.
  17. Tennessee Varmints have a good idea...then they misspell the name, cut off the left side of the logo, put a 1980s-computer-graphic globe on the ball, and give the varmint of note the coldest, dearest eyes you've ever seen. And an inappropriately sized and highly generic font. Yikes.
  18. The sad part is, I can see what they were trying to do with this set, but it still stinks. It's much better in theory than in practice.

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I wish those abs were MY right uniform...jealous.
  20. I wouldn't call any of those uniforms "awful"...in fact, the first two are better than what they wear now.
  21. That has loads more character than what they currently wear - but echoing an above poster, I really associate him more with the 1998 NL champs look.
  22. I wondered how soon Iverson would be posted in this thread. I don't think those unis would be so bad for a team with less tradition than Philly though. Like, that style could add some character to the Raptors' current look. Mutombo's look isn't awful, just not great. Too many dark colors. The Blazers look bad in the Walton photo, but also uniquely Blazers.
  23. I also don't see them as Stockton and Malone's "right" uniforms - I think that title would belong to the previous set. That point is probably debatable though.

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I'm just messing with you. I've never been a soccer fan, but I trust the members of this forum enough that if you say he's in the wrong uniform, I believe it.

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    What's so wrong? Soccer? I agree. Calling a uniform a "kit"? Wearing totally different colors home and away? Changing uniforms every year? Ads on jerseys? French people? All of the above.
