Small details that bother you

Sorry for the large pictures but here's mine.

Russell Wilson has the blue captain patch with the white C and stars.

On the away jersey, this guy has a blue background and a white C/stars:

But on the grey jersey, for whatever reason, its a grey background with white C and stars, not blue. Drives me insane.

Has anyone mentioned that the red numbers on the fronts of the Dodgers' jerseys are considerably thicker than the blue ones on the back?

I just noticed that while watching the NLCS.... it is pretty annoying now haha

This sickening red outline on the Waterloo Warriors logo. Red appears NO WHERE anywhere else in another logo, or jerseys for any sport. It's just another great example of they not to add a totally unnecessary color, taken to a new level!

I dislike the Texas Longhorns use of player numbers on the helmets. I think it distracts from an iconic helmet logo.

I noticed this the other day too. I thought maybe it was the red playing tricks on me but either way, yeah, it bugs the heck out of me, now too.

I'm actually torn on this one. I kind of like them, although I wish the logo was larger and the numbers a bit smaller; but I'm not 100% sure if it still works. To your point, it does distract from the logo. I guess a good rule of thumb that I've tried to stick to holds true in this case: if you are not sure about it, then just ditch it. Therefore I would probably just ditch the numbers.

Anyone mentioned the random white dots on Clemson's midfield logo? Always has bothered me. Maybe they serve a purpose?

I know someone posted an article once saying about how that little hook at the bottom of the paw was put in for anti-counterfeiting measures, so maybe the little dots tie into that.

I believe it's just to make the paw print look more like an actual print. The hook is for printing and merchandising, and is an actual part of the logo wherever it's used. The extra spots are used only one place: at Clemson...on the football field. It's hard to counterfeit a mid-field logo.

The level of detail in that mid-field paw logo is pretty substantial. Imagine painting the jagged white outlines...

hmm

that's a bit of a stretch I would say

if it was solid it would more be in tune with the side stripes that go up to the collarbone and down to the top of the knee

I've always thought the three stripes on the back are supposed to be the three pieces of the horse's mane in the logo.

Not a stretch at all.

Maybe I should wait and let McCarthy respond, but I don't think he meant that. It was just an observation on the way the logo is drawn.

Yeah, I think you're right. My comprehension skills were not working.

Funny how you never notice that, but as soon as someone points it out it bugs the hell out of you. LOL

Yeah, I meant the three pieces in the logo, not literally that horses have three orange chunks of hair for a mane.

I noticed this last night watching the game.

It bothers me that this:

seqwwgbjf0ihqeeu7w8i95s5g.gif

is Florida State's logo, but this:

chief_osceola_920_medium.jpg

is the logo at the 50. The site doesn't even list the 50-yard line logo as an official logo.
