Unpopular Opinions

Another one of my unpopular opinions - I only like the Pats set because it reminds me of the past Nets set. It's basically the football version of these:

I have a friend with the same opinion. After the SB last night he said, "at least Julio has a real championships from Alabama"

Yeah like to me I think college players are actually playing because they love the sport. NFL most of the time just seems like they're in it for the money. Also, the rivalries are really intense in college. NFL not really.

Wow. I'd never thought of it before but it does look similar.

My all-time favourite New York Rangers jersey:

Not even just the "NEW YORK" logo either, the gapped stripes - that actually match the white jersey, too - look so good on that jersey to me. :D

I prefer their green/gold alts but I always felt the green/black got unfair criticism.

Uh, no.


They're playing for a scholarship (and at many big schools a few other benefits), all the trappings of major college ball, and a chance to reach the NFL to make big money.


Yours is a quaint, antiquated and anachronistic notion. Not true now and never was.


(If we're talking about the lower college levels, sure. But definitely not Julio Jones and Alabama.)


There's also nothing wrong with being in your job for the money, especially one where you could end up with brain damage.

It is pretty symmetrical. I don't follow hockey all that closely - when did they wear these?

The original New Orleans Hornets road uniforms were a thousand times better than the pinstriped version

I like the idiosyncratic originals (although the lack of pinstripes on the shorts bothers me), but this set really worked well for a New Orleans-based team. Just adding yellow to the teal-and-purple (and changing the shades a bit) kept the franchise's continuity going while simultaneously representing its new city.

Like insert name said, from 1978-79 to 1986-87. They replaced the "NEW YORK" with "RANGERS" that year, but that striping pattern stayed until 1996-97, when they mashed 'em together and eliminated the gaps, which is how it looked before 1976-77.

Not exactly where to put this, but I found this image of the Preds old Mustard alt. I know a lot of people hate it, but I always thought it was a great design... Just a terrible color... I know all of this was talked about a while ago, but I don't remember which thread it was.

It's actually yellow! I know that the image was tinkered with, but it looks much better!

In addition to the "Flying-V" jerseys from 1978-85 for the Vancouver Canucks, I like their replacements, worn from 1985-89:

I think the red alternate of this set was pretty sharp.

Oh that one... 
 

That red alt came from the mid-90s jersey set.

About 7 seasons after the one in the picture above.
