    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Red Wings Hall of Famer Ted Lindsay as a Chicago Black Hawk. Red Wings GM Jack Adams, angered that Lindsay was attempting to start a players' union, traded Lindsay to last place Chicago.
  2. Linebacker Darryl Talley was a regular for the Bills during the Superbowl years. His rookie year was 1983, the year before the Bills switched to the red helmets.

    Daytona Tortugas to open season with Hangover Night

    I wouldn't go to the men's room during the game. There might be a tiger in there.

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Here's a couple other wrong uniforms for Steve Christie, with the Chargers and Giants.: And here's one a lot of people probably don't know about. After his NFL career ended, Christie played one game for the CFL's Toronto Argonauts.
  7. I think the biggest difference is that the 1980 set had TV numbers and the set that preceded them didn't. Also black facemasks. The older set had grey facemasks. http://nflfootballjournal.blogspot.com/2016/10/cincinnati-bengals-last-team-to-add-tv.html

    NHL 2018-19

    The Sabres did an All-Star style Skills Challenge at Key Bank Center today. These are the jerseys they wore for that.

    NHL 2018-19

    I like them just because they use more color than most pads. So many goalies go with mainly white pads it gets pretty boring.

    NHL 2018-19

    Couldn't agree more. Check out the gear that Linus Ullmark is wearing this year for the Sabres. So good.
  11. I mean, they would be long shorts if he didn't have them pulled up to his nipples.

    Redeeming Qualities of Bad Uniforms

    Agreed. I wouldn't mind if they brought those back for the current set or for whatever replaces them when they get around to redesigning them.

    Color on Color Matchups in Football

    Color on color wouldn't really work well in the NHL because it would require teams on multi-game road trips to travel with multiple sets of gear to avoid clashes. That was the main reason that they went to color at home in the first place, so teams could wear their color 3rd jerseys at home against road teams that would already have their road whites on hand. The only way I could really see it working would be for the road team to dictate what color they would be wearing and for the home team, who would already have all their available uniform options on hand, to change to match them if there's a clash.

    The Sabres' "turdburger" alts were awful, but I always thought the Captains patches were really cool.
