Since everyone has been PMing me and my phone has been ringing off the hook, I'll go ahead and expand on my earlier statement by commenting on each post in this thread:

 

Green = whether I agree or not, it's a reasonable argument and comes down to subjective tastes.

Red = so silly of a position that whoever posted it should be banned from the forum, be subject to a psychological evaluation, and be prohibited from ever owning weapons.

 

1977 Blazers
2007 Ducks

2017 Pens
1979 Pirates
2017 Eagles
LA Kings

2016 Cavs 
Seahawks
2003 Marlins

Recent GSW
2011 Mavs.

1998 Broncos
2016 Cubs
2012 Ravens

I tend to agree with most.  All the greens are reasonable arguments to make.  Some I agree with, some I don't.

 

For the red, though, as much as you vehemently disagree, I don't know that these are unreasonable.

  • Pens: I'm with you on both of those uniforms being worse.  But we know how much people hated the Vegas gold for the Pens.
  • Eagles: I like all kelly sets better.  They won the super bowl in the dark uniform (does that invalidate the white uniform argument?  I think it does if we base the Cavs on the black uniform and not the whole set), which I think was better in 1996 than now.  I'd probably color this green, but if you are counting the blue and yellow, it's a stretch.
  • Kings: This may be red.  The burger king was just so stupid.  I'd also add the set with "Los Angeles" going across the bottom.
  • Golden State: I'm with you.  The uniforms you addressed were awful.  
  • Mavs: That set is so played out...I'm OK with judging any uniform from this era as their worst.
  • Cubs: I'm with you in all ways.  As much as the Cubs road grays are not classics, it would have been far better to see than the blue jersey.  But this team goes back to the 1800s and I'd rank some of their non-traditional road uniforms (the dark blue with white pants, the powder with white pinstripes) worse.  Not to mention all the goofy stuff teams wore in the deadball era.

That said, while I agree that some people are just going to go with "championships in bad uniforms" I have a hard time invalidating any of these opinions as ridiculous.  Maybe the Cubs and, thanks to burger king, the Kings.

Our last championship was so long ago, players were still wearing LONG SLEEVES and helmets WITHOUT facemasks

To deviate just a bit...

The Joe Gibbs Racing #18 has a long history with both green cars and nice designs, but this scheme was awful. M&Ms paint schemes should be yellow or brown. We narrowly avoided another, though not quite as bad, terrible design when Busch finished second last year in the Caramel M&Ms car.

Their regular home and away sets were mediocre, but fine. Their blue alternate was legitimately good. But literally every design element on the black jersey - the color combination, the oversized "C", the sleeves - was awful.

 

Strongly disagree on everything except the sleeves. The giant "C" was awful too, but better than what all the other sets had to offer.

Manchester United won the Premier League in 2013 while wearing the tablecloths from the Trafford Pizza Hut.

I'd say the Patriots never had a look that I could consider above average. The closest was maybe the white on white back in the 70's and 80's with the white facemask. And while the Patriots center hiking the ball was a nice logo on its own it didn't work on a helmet

The only way the Warriors uniforms aren't unique is because everyone else has followed them in wearing big logos on their jerseys.

 

The problem is the warriors logo isn't big, it's small/medium.

The 2006 BC Lions Grey Cup championship team had a hot mess for their look.

I love the lions 50s look. I love the way they look as throwbacks now.

That is not the Lions worst set though, this was by far.

They never won a championship in those unis though. 

They won two in the old red and gold set, and switched to the pj look immediately afterwards.

they looked like they were wearing long-sleeved t shirts, and had plain silver helmets with either mismatched facemasks or none at all.  While I love the modernized throwbacks we've worn since 1994, the things players were wearing in the 50's looked silly.  At least the Millen-induced black trimmed uniforms look like proper uniforms.

Every uniform should be assessed in its context. The 1950s uniforms were fine-looking uniforms in an era where every uniform was relatively minimalist and had long sleeves. The Millen-era uniforms looked like somebody slapped random black trim onto the 1990s Lions uniform, which is exactly what happened. No, the 1950s uniforms shouldn't be brought back as a full-time uniform today (although they're great at Thanksgiving, as a reminder of the dominant Lions teams of the 50s), but the Millen-era uniforms were a joke design-wise.

Those had the awesome striping consistency that the Florida Gators do so well.  But you're right... Pat Patriot ruined that set.  Not sure how that logo managed to last into the 90s.
