  1.   This. I don't know a single person who dislikes the Ballard logo or was in a particular hurry to have the team dump it. That's definitely not the consensus point of view of "the vast majority of the Leafs' fanbase". 
  2. I've never been a fan of the two thin stripes - they look too dainty. I'd much prefer the multi-stripe onslaught of the late 20's-30's, or at least the single tri-stripe band of the '67 jersey. They're just as much a part of Leafs' tradition and better looking aesthetically.
  3. We're talking about logos, not jersey designs. Both Montreal and Boston have bad logos which are revered simply because of their age and affiliation with past teams. 
  4. While I have zero issues with the Ballard era logo, which has aged very well and doesn't at all look dated in today's NHL, I've always liked the 1938 leaf the best, so I'll probably be a huge fan of the redesign unveiled tomorrow. That being said, I hope it's just a throw-back of sorts for the 100th anniversary season, and perhaps a couple more after that. At that point I'd like to see them come up with something completely new from the ground up. I'm sick of "Original Six" teams (which they never were BTW) sticking with old designs simply because they're old, despite most of them not even being good (I'm looking at you Habs and Bruins). It's time to grow up and get with the times, instead of clinging to a past 75% of your fan base wasn't alive to see.

    I don't think anyone with that horrible Canadiens logo as their avatar has any business or right to call these ugly. They're plain, borderline boring (although I'm sure they'll become less so when names and numbers are added), but they're in no way ugly, and the colour scheme works just fine.
  6. Bad Uniforms/Logos made classic by Good Teams

    Nordiques and Islanders. The two worst pro sports logos ever created. Not a fan of Boston's Spoke B either, but it's not as outright attrocious as those. The NY Giants logo sucks on a massive scale as well, but I'm not sure if it can be considered classic.

    I don't care what the jersey purists say, I gotta get me one of them there Sharks Herigate jerseys with Irbe on the back. The Sharks would be dumb not to move to these beauties full-time.
  8. The new one is definitely bland and generic, but the old one was hardly timeless. Its best before date was a good 10 years ago.

    You know what's even less releavant than where a team is located? The nationality of the team captain.

    It didn't warrant that post either. You're only 6 hrs and a page behind As for the new logo, while I admit to just yesterday thinking that the old slanted maple leaf logo was getting a bit dated while the awards featuring it were handed out, this is by no means an improvement. I kind of like the 3 laces/3downs thing, but otherwise it's a significant downgrade design wise.

    There's a difference between paying homage to the past and living in it. Detroit is guilty of the latter. New stuff has zero value only because it's new. That won't be the case from here on in. I definitley wouldn't mind Detroit using the new "D" logo again in the future, even if the rest of the Stadium Series jersey is entirely forgettable.
  12. 2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    It's about time Detroit came up with something new, I'm so sick of the older teams being afraid to move on from antiquated looks just because of history. The collar looks ridiculous, as do the oversized numbers numbers (although I fully understand the point of them being more visible in a stadium setting), but otherwise it's a decent modernization. The new "D" logo looks great.

    Not a fan of the shade of blue on the Habs jersey, and that CH logo might just be ugly enough to take the crown from the Nordiques for "worst pro sports logo ever".

    The IIHF likely owns the rights to the designs, and as such, the national federations can have multiple manufacturers produce their products. Most of the junior level jerseys and all of those of teams playing in the lower teirs are produced by Tackla, but the designs are the same as the Nike versions.

    If Tokyo 2020 is a law firm from the 70's then it's great. Otherwise, this is just another entry in a long line of "WTF?" Olympic disasters.
