Small details that bother you

661 posts in this topic

That the Lakers do not use drop shadow anymore and the use of the white jersey and the non-use of the purple jersey.

I think you have it the other way around. The purple is for road games while the white is only for sunday/holiday home games.

A lot of people seem to be mixing up "small details that bother you" with "things I don't like about a certain team's look." Just saying.

Going to all the trouble of making a high-def, high-quality version of a logo, then saving it as a JPEG.

Generally speaking, I like the Braves' unis, but a few things really bother me.

Braves hat logo:

Atlanta+Braves+Photo+Day+feQ1KYf3SwEl.jp




Braves helmet logo:
Brian+McCann+Philadelphia+Phillies+v+Atl

The navy alternates have virtually no red and the piping is not consistent with their red alternates:

My bad, I don't follow the NBA that closely at all. Still wish they stuck with the drop shadow.

I also think the Giants' current set is one of the best in the league. They tried putting both blue and red on the road jersey in the Kerry Collins years, and to me it looked purple from a distance:

I like the current red-only version much better.

Honestly, I think that's just due to bad lighting. In good lighting, those looked fantastic.

Here's an inconsistency that bothers me - since the Texas Rangers use this style of trim on their numerals and lettering:

...why is the wordmark on the front of the jersey this?:

TexasRangers_UNS01a_2012_SCC_SRGB.png

...instead of this?:

TexasRangers_PropUNS1a_2012_SCC_SRGB.png

(The superfluous Black dropshadow is another issue.)

Agree, Those jerseys looked professional...the current ones look like practice or low-budget high school jerseys.

This one's an ongoing production mistake that never gets corrected - and I know this one's been brought up before - but it continues to bug me...the Indiana Pacers' mismatched stripes.

The location of the Gray stripes between the jerseys and shorts do not line up on the White and Navy uniforms. Here's a pic of the White unis:

Navy:

Dwyane+Wade+Udonis+Haslem+Indiana+Pacers

The Gold alts are correct.

Here are some official graphics that show the issue more clearly:

Incorrect (yet game-worn) White uniforms:

IndianaPacers_IncorrectSidePanelDetail01

Corrected White uniforms:

IndianaPacers_SidePanelDetail01a_2013_SC

Incorrect (yet game-worn) Navy uniforms:

IndianaPacers_IncorrectSidePanelDetail02

Corrected Navy uniforms:

IndianaPacers_SidePanelDetail02a_2013_SC

Gold (correct):

IndianaPacers_SidePanelDetail03a_2013_SC

However, there are rumors that the Pacers may be getting redesigned uniforms for 2013-2014 anyway, so this all might be moot.

The Titans' sleeves. Specifically how the shoulder stripe doesn't go all the way to the end anymore bothers me.

This actually looks much more cheap, haphazard and high school-caliber to me, while the crisp, clean current jerseys look very professional. I do like the pants, though.

I dont like the current away because there is no blue on a team that calls itself "big blue" i think the current away could easily add blue to it, by having the big thick stripe be blue, and id like blue numbers outlined in red, but i know red numbers are tradition so those outlined in blue, and make a matching home jersey

Similar to that Toronto problem. It really bothers me that the Brewers put a second, navy, drop-shadow on their jerseys.

pMLB2-5669706dt.jpg

But only on the front wordmark. The rest is fine with just a white outline and gold drop-shadow:

pMLB2-9567356dt.jpg

They do this on the road grays as well, and it's infuriating.

pMLB2-5669713dt.jpg

It's overly fussy on its own (who needs two drop-shadows?) but the inconsistency makes it worse.

I'm also bothered by the fact that they have to rotate the script to make it fit on the primary logo:

That's just bad design.

The Brewers use Times New Roman, right? That's an awful font choice.

Orgo, are you refering to the type that says "Milwaukee"? If so, that's Copper Plate, and even though it is a classic and was created in 1901, it still is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over used and gets on my nerves. People use it to look "old timey" all the time.

Also, the Golden State Warriors use it too...

I'd bet he means the AWFUL NOB & Number font. THAT'S Times New Roman.

I brought this up in the CFB thread, but the lack of TV numbers in college football is really starting to bother me.

Especially when there are no stripes or design blocking the use of them. They look like high school uniforms.

Your version looks worlds better. Switching the colors makes a huge difference.

How the Tigers use a white dot on the top of their home helmets when the caps have a dark blue squatchee.

Now that I've seen the Rangers' font issue and the Pacers' stripe issue I can't fathom how those made it through quality control. Then again, this is a world where Cowboys' multiple issues exist.

I don't know if thus is a small detail, but... I don't like when collegiate women's teams have male nicknames.

Eg:

Providence Friars ... should be Providence Nuns

Fairfield Stags ... should be Fairfield Does

Colorado State, URI, Fordham Rams .... should be Ewes

South Carolina Gamecocks .... should be SC Hens

It also works in the reverse:

University of Delaware men's teams should be the Blue Roosters, not the Blue Hens

The only school to do it correctly is Wyoming... they refer to their women teams as Cowgirls.

I dont like that because the mascot name identifies the school, not the team, and when the team wouldnt exist without the school i dont believe the name should change to make sure they are gender specific.

The eyes on the Cardinals' birds-on-bat are looking backward, it looks like they're rolling their eyes, or they just had some sort of bird argument and refuse to make eye contact or something.

Anyways, my beef is the fact that the Dodgers front number is red and the back is blue. It is the only red on the uniform at all, so I wish they'd just stick with either all red numbers or all blue. (and I know, f*** tradition like someone said with the Yanks.
