Unpopular Opinions

Recommended Posts

I confess...I love the Indians' block "C".  Also, the red hat (just with the cream jersey.  Why did they get rid of it?).  My dad loves the Flames' fire-snorting horsehead logo.  Not sure if that qualifies...

 

Note:  I am okay with Chief Wahoo.  I just like the block "C" better.

I actually own a Mets and Royals BFBS cap. Even though I am a Cards fan, I had to get them. Payed three bucks at the local antique store. Dont know what it is, but they both look right to me. Probably because I grew up with them wearing black, but IMO it looks nice. A's on the other hand have no business in black...

I say that I can stand most unpopular opinions...but I look at this thread and it gives me a headache. (Not trying to dump on you.)

 

I'm glad I didn't have to live through part of the Royals-in-Black era.  Born in '03, Royals and D-backs fan for life.  Unless they move...

See, I was born in '00. Im a Cardinals fan for life, so I really don't like the Royals. I didn't follow baseball untill 08 or so, and by then BFBS had fizzled out fot the most part. But I just really like those black Royals hats for some reason.

I can remember very little of anything-sports included-before 2012 or thereabouts.  By that point BFBS was nearly dead.  Even the Mets were done.  I'm glad I have only pictures to rely on for most BFBS-era monstrosities.  I will remember Mets-in-Black for many things, not the least of which was beating my DeeBax in the NLDS back in '99.  Not too fond of it, for many a reason.

 

Does liking the Mets' non-pinstriped white alts (black-free, regular cap, not that orange-brimmed stupidity) count as an unpopular opinion?

 

Also, I'm fine with the Cards if they're not playing AZ or KC.

‘03?! Holy hell. I’m not even old and I feel old. 

 

I can respect buying those three dollar hats from an antique store, that’s a deal that’s pretty tough to pass up. I own a Rockies Memorial Day cap from a couple years ago with the camo crown-purple bill; I despise camo but thought this one looked surprisingly sharp. Even among terrible trends, there’s always a few that look (kind of) decent.

I just bought one of those camo BoSox hats a couple of months ago.  I think it's the tan color of the camouflage with the red that got me.  It looks sharp, and I don't even like the Red Sox.

Tell me about it. @Danny the Sheebwas born the year I graduated high school. 

 

Danny, I am envious of the fact that you didn't have to deal with the monstrous sports fashions that plagued my mid-teens through my early twenties. Drab colors (it's given me a lasting dislike of navy blue) with lots of BFBS, overly complicated designs that made no sense...my least favorites of those looks would be those of the Bills in football and (sorry) the Royals in baseball. I only regret that you didn't get to see bright metallic colors, to which Nike is apparently allergic.

Spealong of bright metallic colors, here's an unpopular opinion of my own: I'd love to see someone in the NBA own the copper and sky blue that the Jazz used for trim colors from 1997-2004. (Or that copper and the 2004-10 sky blue.) Not the Jazz, mind you. Grizzlies, maybe? I want to see a copper uniform, dangit!

Are you referring to the Royals' BFBS era? I prefer to pretend that never happened.  I love saying that if the 2015 World Series had happened ten years before, we would have a calamity on our hands.

 

Nobody else my age seems to care about sports logos.  Knowledge is wasted on my generation.

I wish the wizards went with something like (copper and Sky blue) that as a call back to an older era with a twist

The lack of stripes on the New York Giants home uniform drives me nuts.

I'm with you.  I also don't really like how the Giants are a blue team at home and a red team on the road.  I wish they'd integrate both colors into each jersey.

I want the Niners to go half way.  Gold outline and sleeve accents but no black or dropshadow.  But they only have overdone it or been very plain.  Guilty (among this crowd) pleasure: I like the dark red.  But regardless of shade, I want a red facemask.

I like the Nashville Predators new road jersey.  The old ones (home/road) were good and had they just removed the piping, it would have been perfect.  But, they clearly wanted gold to be the predominant colour when they changed the socks to be that way a few years ago and for some reason, only waited until now to make the full change.

Mine, too.  I love that leaf and I think the shoulder version looked great, even if it was a bit redundant.
