    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    I also think these were bland. You're right that in a still photo in a studio, with perfect lighting, they're merely ugly. But in action, it looked like they were wearing some kind of mismatched military fatigues. Any resemblance to a gator was lost, and with that, they became bland.

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    This is even more frustrating because it would be so easy to fix and make this a truly excellent look. All they need to do is standardize the blue, standardize the silver, and coordinate the sleeve stripes with the Braisher stripes on the helmet and pants. That would be a top-5 look in the league.

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    The vast majority of black-out, gray-out, and white-out uniforms afflicting college football fall into this category. Pianoknight pointed out the Colorado ones, but there are so many others.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    I'd also change the red on the jersey to be a true sleeve cap, like the NY Jets, rather than sleeve/armpit caps. It looks much cleaner.

    Atypical and Defunct Uniform Suppliers of Note

    The San Jose State supplier was "4-Players-Only," which was a Texas-based startup that, as far as I can tell, never outfitted any other major program.

    West Michigan Whitecaps to play as Beer City Bung Hammers

    I don't know if people really care about that (although admittedly I'm not a big baseball fan). When the team started, it was an A's affiliate, and it seemed to be relatively popular right away.

    Do they? I've never heard this before. Off the top of my head, I can't think of an alt that isn't one of those two, but I'm not sure whether that's because of a hard rule or just because teams want consistency in branding.

    West Michigan Whitecaps to play as Beer City Bung Hammers

    I can't speak to other cities, but Grand Rapids was voted Beer City USA in a number of national polls from 2012-2017. Nothing scientific, but it at least gives the claim a color of legitimacy. Founders is one of the biggest microbreweries, and there are a number of other GR breweries that are significant on a regional level. With regard to Milwaukee, I'd argue that it was the most significant brewing city at one point back in the pre-craft era, but is now far behind with regard to influential breweries - there's Lakefront, and that's about it. Also, the Whitecaps are in a "suburb" in name only - Comstock Park is certainly part of the Grand Rapids urban area. I work in downtown GR and can see the stadium from my office on a clear day.

    The nickname isn't just an invention for this jersey - it's something that Grand Rapids markets around. https://www.experiencegr.com/things-to-do/beer-city/

    Unpopular Opinions

    I like classic hockey uniforms, so I don't mind, but one could argue that Dallas, Edmonton, Minnesota, Buffalo, Carolina, Florida, Winnipeg, Vancouver, and the NY Islanders currently have O6-style jerseys as their primaries. All of those teams have simple striping (shoulders and waist only), primary and secondary colors only, and no more than two colors other than white. I'm not sure how you'd define "Original Six Dress-Up," but those elements are probably part of it.

    The white-over-white Rams with gold horns and a blue facemask is actually a very good look, in my opinion. The blue-over-gold set is too dark and drab, and the blue-over-white set is unbalanced because there's so little white above the waist.

    I think that logic is exactly why they waited. Now if you're a Rams fan in LA and want to support the team, you "have" to buy a jersey now, and then a new one in 2019/2020 for the new look. Looking like crap for a few years is worth it, from the team's perspective, if it can double jersey sales.
