BATFBATS

OK we all know what BFBS means. But the 1990s saw some awful uniform trends, including teams not only shoehorning black into their uniforms, but also teal. Hence, "black and teal for black and teal's sake."

To me, the worst example was the Cleveland Cavaliers, who wore blue and red, then switched to black and teal in the mid-1990s:

In what universe were the Cavs' prior uniforms red?

1st) wrong..that was black and electric blue

2)that jersey above was is and will always be orange. Not red. Colorwerx will point that out.

3)San Jose Sharks,Detroit Pistons would have been better examples but no biggie.

^ Sharks were the first teal team in pro sports. They weren't following a trend, they started it.

Nope:

OK. I'm only lurking here now, but this thread is making my head explode.

1. The Cavaliers called that color Blue, but in reality, it was the same exact Pantone that the Angels used in their Disney-era uniforms. They called it Periwinkle.

2. The Cavs switched from Burnt Orange and Royal Blue. NOT Red.

3. First example of Teal in pro sports I've found were the California Golden Seals in the 1974-1975 NHL season.

Good gosh...don't make me stop the car and get back there!

Geez, next thing you're gonna tell me is that the Syracuse Orange don't wear red uniforms! Or the Browns' helmet is orange and not red! ;)

I'd really love it if the Marlins went BATFBATS.

And as I read the first post, I thought "That's periwinkle!" Cool to see that my Crayola memory lines up with the Pantones this time.

This thread makes as much sense as a Nancy Pelosi speech.

BATFBATS? Are we really THAT bored? :D

but yet you miss the point of the thread by posting a uniform that doesn't have any black in it?

The uniform on the right is black...

I think the uniform on the right is very wet/rain-soaked teal. I'm pretty sure the Surge never worn jerseys other than teal and white.

I'd say it is too because I had a hard time finding any pictures other than that. They did have black trim on the uniforms, however.
