Unpopular Opinions

Which is one of the reasons ads on NBA jerseys is awful. Because unlike soccer, there are breaks (too many).

History aside, it's horrible.

I'd say that could be said for a lot of 'classic' logos.

I wish more MLB players chose to wear 99.

 

As far as I know, only two current players wear it (Aaron Judge, Yankees & Daniel Robertson, Indians)

Not sure high top cleats and high socks would really go together well, though. Not sure any player has ever really combined the two - I think almost every player who wore high cuff cleats also worse relatively low cut pants.

Nelson Cruz wore LeBron cleats and high socks a few weeks ago in Detroit

Interesting. I hate how that looks. Granted, that's a hideous shoe, but the high tops do not mesh well with high socks.

The Cleveland Browns uniforms are great. I'd say they're in the Top 4 of Nike redesigned uniforms.

 

 

Wait... there has only been seven teams redesigned since the Nike takeover...

Seattle

Minnesota

Jacksonville

Miami

Tampa Bay

Cleveland

Detroit

 

So if you've got them at four, that's exactly in the middle, with three teams better and three teams worse.  But they're still "great"?  How does that math work?  Or are all the Nike redesigns great to you?

I never said I ranked them at 4. I simply said they were in the Top 4. Personally, I place them at 2 behind Minnesota and in front of Miami, Detroit, Jacksonville, Seattle, and Tampa Bay in that order.

 

It's no secret that all redesigns have at least one flaw.

 

Minnesota- number serif only showing up on the first number of double digits

Cleveland- "BROWNS" woodmark on the pants

Miami- Minimal use of orange (excluding color rush)

Detroit- "LIONS" on one sleeve "WCF" on the other

Jacksonville- the helmet

Seattle- overusing the "feather" pattern

Tampa Bay- "BUCS" on one sleeve the ship on the other, the "alarm clock" numbers

 

Things that don't bother me about the redesigns:

 

Minnesota- black facemask

Cleveland- Outstretched sleeve stripes

Miami- the logo

Detroit- the color rush uniform

Jacksonville- oddly enough, the helmet

Seattle- "SEAHAWKS" inside the left outstretched sleeve stripe

Tampa Bay- the oversized logo on helmet

 

Things I wish was accomplished with each redesign:

 

Minnesota- made the top sleeve stripes flat and both stripes wider

Cleveland- smaller "CLEVELAND" woodmark

Miami- block number font

Detroit- "LIONS" on both sleeves

Jacksonville- full black helmet, all teal color rush, use gold pants in normal uniform rotation

Seattle- no unnecessary feather pattern helmet "stripe"

Tampa Bay- no pewter jersey yokes

Not sure whether it actually is unpopular or not, but when the Nashville Predators switched to the yellow helmets full time, I hated it.  Now, perhaps its just something I've become use to, but after just seeing a short clip of them in the blue lids, I'm starting to think they made the right decision with the switch.

I have to admit, I actually really liked this look:

 

IMG_6395.JPG.315ace3a30c8c4c7a6705ab6447bda29.JPG

 

Now granted, the Blue Jays look the best they've ever looked right now (I dare say it's the best look in the whole league), so I'm not at all screaming "bring it back!". BUT I did like the color scheme, appreciated them going out on a limb a little, and they were in my mind just a few touch-ups and tweaks (namely a little more light blue, toning down the beveling a little) from being a really excellent look.

 

If the Blue Jays were a 2004 expansion team and ran out of the dugout in this, I think with those tweaks it definitely could've survived and survived well. As it was, though, its days were numbered from the get-go due to the history they'd had before.

Not gonna lie, its single side of helmet uniqueness keeps it from being lost for me.  Otherwise it is quite generic.

 

It's neither here nor there. 

 

I understand there is a purpose and a meaning to the various parts of the logo, but so much of this is first glance and what immediately comes to mind. I just see the word Steelers and three randomly colored astroids. It doesn't make me think of football, the franchise that it represents, the steel industry, or the blue collar city.

 

It's not ugly but of all the iconic franchises in sports it's probably the most middling logo that any of them have

I hate this. The Panthers have ugly dated uniforms that still reek of the mid 90's. That shade of blue doesn't work with black in the least bit. The black jersey and silver helmet don't look all that great together either.

 

I don't like how the striping on the pants and helmet come to a point. The pant stripes in particular are hideous in how they start off as way too fat and thick on the top and then taper down.

Agreed, but I still hated how the wordmark was slanted. It looked awkward, mainly because of how the logo was facing downward.

You were so close to getting a like from me until you mentioned the shade of blue not working. :D

Based on his post, I was under the impression he is aware there is a literal connection to the steel industry, but it's very easy to overlook, especially on first glance.

 

Consider this... How many random people do you think would know that a. the Steelers logo is based on the steelmark, a logo that is not seen all that much on a regular basis and b. the colors are not random, and actually have meaning? I would hazard a guess most random people would be unaware of either, which I think is what he was trying to say when he suggested the Steelers logo is "middling."

 

As for me, I just don't really like the logo to begin with. It almost strikes me as too generic. You could take away the "Steelers" text and give the logo to a team named the "Stars." It's an iconic logo, but there are some things about it I have always disliked.

We live in an era where everyone has an encyclopedia at their fingertips. It's easier than ever to know what the US Steelmark is.

I think these are a better fit for the Anaheim home and road jerseys...

The throwback logo is a perfect secondary logo, keeping a connection to the team's roots without reverting backwards too much. I think the Webbed D is a decent logo fit for the time we're in right now. And I don't feel like a white version of the alternate will look all that great. The current trio of jerseys is perfect as is, and they should keep this set for a while.

 

Plus, the Ducks won a Cup in this scheme, not the throwback scheme.

The Ducks won the Junior Goodwill Games in the throwback scheme..

I wouldn't mind seeing a tweaked version of these duds for your MLB concept series.B)
