  1. 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.

    Redeeming Qualities of Bad Uniforms

    The Sabres' "turdburger" alts were awful, but I always thought the Captains patches were really cool.
  5. I'm sure it's not a popular opinion around here but I'd rather have players running around with a giant ad on their shirts than cut away from the game every minute and a half for a commercial break.
  6. I can't seem to find anything official stating this but I've seen it mentioned on Deadspin and a few other places that this is a rule. A couple teams who had their logos before the rule went into effect were grandfathered in.
  7. Isn't there a rule that requires NBA teams to have a logo that features a basketball? I don't think it needs to be the primary logo necessarily, but at least one in their set needs to have a basketball in it.

    Terrible name, but I kind of dig that crest.

    Philosophical question - Monochromatic Design

    The most infamous example would be the 1974-75 Washington Capitals, who wore white pants with their road uniform for part of their inaugural season. The switched to blue pants part way through the season when their white pants became yellowed by sweat stains. More recently Toronto wore white pants for an outdoor game, coincidentally against the Caps who themselves wore blue pants, apparently with white yoga pants underneath them.

    Arena Rafters & Banners

    I disagree with this. Division titles are banner worthy. If you have a ton of them it's probably better to combine them, but if you only have a few go ahead and hang individual banners.

    Jeez, they could have at least ran an iron over that thing before they hung it.

    Aren't Maine the Black Bears? Why was the mascot blue for awhile?

    Syracuse University's Otto the Orange has gone through a number of redesigns since he was introduced in the early '80s.

    Sparky went through a more radical redesign when he went from the mascot for the New York Dragons Arena Football team to the Islanders' mascot.

    Mascot Redesigns

    The Sabres have redesigned Sabretooth a couple of times to coincide with their various color changes over the years. The original Sabretooth was orange and black: When the Sabres changed to red and black in 1996 Sabretooth changed to red and black as well: When the Sabres changed back to navy blue and gold in 2006 Sabretooth changed as well, this time to gold with navy stripes:

    Because you're linking to the album, not the image. I've had the same problem before. You can right click on the image on the imgur album page and click on 'copy image location' to get the direct link to the image and then post that instead.

    Stories Behind The Numbers

    Gordie Howe wore #17 as a rookie. In those days teams traveled by train, and the sleeper berths on the Red Wings' train were assigned by uniform number. Lower numbers got the lower berths. When the number 9 became available Howe took it to get the better spot on the train and kept it for the rest of his career.

    Seemed Like A Good Idea On Paper

    Maybe an unpopular opinion, but Cooperalls. I was a kid playing pee-wee hockey when the Cooperall trend hit and man, I thought they were cool. Seemed like all the best kids in my league wore them, and then they even started showing up in the NHL. But, unfortunately, like the Titanic, they looked great until they hit the ice.
