*Nervously whispers* The New Orleans Baby Cakes brand is good. 

Every time I hear the name Baby Cakes I can't un-associate it with this guy:

Plus, they are called King Cakes, which happen to have a plastic baby in them.  Branding miss IMO, unless they start playing this song during rally time

With the exception of the one from the classic Expos' set, I don't like baseball caps with front panels that are a different color from the rest of the cap. I like white caps, but not white-paneled caps.

As I watch March Madness, I have found myself really liking Rhode Island's shorts.

Every time I read this thread I wanna go crazy on people and then I have to calm myself down and remind myself that this thread is actually meant for unpopular opinions.

Looks like the player in the back likes those shorts more than you do.

I just want the arena to go back to being named "The Pond".  Wish Honda could do something with that name, but not necessarily name it "Honda Pond".  

 

How about The Pond at Honda Center or The Pond presented by Honda?

I actually like these variants of the lions uniforms. Was the addition of black unnecessary? Yes. But did it ruin the uniform? No. It was a solid look during a period where the lions were at their worst (believe it or not)

I like cream uniforms in MLB; I think colors actually pop a bit more.  However, I think only classic teams (read: pre-LCS) can pull it off correctly.  I'd LOVE to have a cream Dodgers alternate (without a NOB and any sleeve patches or piping) to be worn on Sundays.

Although I'm glad they're dropping black, it does add some needed definition. I was never a huge fan of the lions older uniforms because the light blue and the gray never contrasted very well imo.

I used to like cream MLB jerseys but now they just look like dirty, stained, old uniforms to me. I realized it last weekend when I saw someone wearing a cream Mets jersey for the first time since the Mets dropped it. My first reaction wasn't "Oooh what a beautiful cream colored jersey!"... my reaction was "Ewww, when was the last time that guy washed that jersey?" It's like my brain forgot the cream existed and my mind read it as being the white jersey but just stained.

That set always looked to me like something I would have doodled with a Sharpie over the non-black Lions uni.

That's the point: they're supposed to look vintage.

These darker revamps of familiar looks, actually are kind of cool

I do like a lot of the darkened looks of the late '90s on their own, I just think that when so many teams did it, it really sucked some visual life out of the league. You had the Isles and Oilers going to navy blue, the Flyers ditching their signature orange in favor of the black uniforms, the Sharks started wearing their black alternates a lot more often at the expense of the teal unis, the Stars went from kelly green to a dark hunter green that was barely distinguishable from the black on their unis. Florida promoted their navy alternates to full -time road (then home) status instead of the bright red set, and the Flames were wearing that black uniform with the flaming horse head logo instead of red.

 

Really, I don't think any of those looks were bad on their own, but when they all replaced brighter, and in some cases, iconic looks, it kind of made the league a little dreary looking for a while.

IMO only the Giants make cream work. I don't know... some about cream next to black and orange looks good. It makes me think of cream soda for some reason (and I've never even had cream soda!).

I think the Indians red block C hat works better with the cream alternate than the blue block C hat did. 

 

This just flows so well, especially with the red socks, belt, and undershirt.

This doesn't look bad, but something about that red hat makes the cream alternates pop more to me.

While I truly liked both looks a lot at the time, if I had a choice between one or the other ever staying, I'd have had the Islanders keep this darker set and let the Oilers take the course they've taken. The Oilers just look better AND right in the brighter colors and I liked the Islanders darker because 1) the orange trim really popped against that navy, and 2) it distanced a bit from the Rangers. Not that they've ever looked too similar, but it's always bugged me that for a long time and now again, the two NYC area teams were/are both royal blue.
