Could you explain this?  I fail to see how residents of any particular area take on the personality of a professional sports team.

I was not referring to residents taking on the personality of the team--I am talking strictly looks.  A bunch of people wearing Blackhawks gear looks very "Chicago" even though nothing about the Blackhawks identity/look is indicative of Chicago.  So, in a sense, the city reflects the look of the team instead of the other way around.

John Candy's character in the movie "Summer Rental" is from Chicago.  A quick and easy way to get that across is to put him in a Blackhawks jersey.

Wow.  THAT comparison really sticks out.  Top look says "Professional NFL Uniform".  The bottom look is "Hey, we're an arena team no one's ever heard of!"

 

The new design has grown on me, other than the stupid numbers, but the downgrade from pewter to grayish on the uniform is huge.

Maybe not biggest, but it was possibly the most subtle major downgrade.

That set had so much potential. Shame they moved on from it so soon.

I liked it too. I guess they didn't want to be associated with the Chargers.

Who even knows what the Padres want to be associated with nowadays.

They're barely associated with baseball.

That's why I thought a logical next step was to simply switch out the navy for brown on that set and call it a day. Would have been a perfect way to grow support for the team that otherwise has little if any support. But this is why they are the Padres.

Yellow was a one year addition for the ASG being in town only. They should have kept it or rebranded around it.

 

Then again, this is the padres so they'd be on their third set by now anyway.
