I think red lines going through the script would clutter it

Sorry for not explaining it right.. This is what I mean:

Well that's what I thought you meant, I actually went onto Paint and drew lines, but all looked good to me... Although it's quite obvious with that picture

For me, that's not the problem. Speed lines don't have to connect.

I'm more bothered by the fact that they've that elegant script in their toolbox for eighty years and put this clunky one on the jerseys instead:

This logo was covered before, but I don't think this detail was.  There is no black outline on the wrist between the hand and the shirt cuff all the way on the right hand side of the logo.  I also checked the nba.com store and the same problem is on merch, too.

The revised speed lines on the right don't look right. The one on the left is too long. It's better the way they have it.

Its an old logo, just now its recolored, it has had that problem since it came out as a black white and green logo, its easy to fix, but its such a classic they never will

This logo has pinstripes despite the team never wearing pinstripes. Bothers me.

There's no black anywhere on the Wisconsin uniform, yet on the logo...

Speaking of Wisconsin, their inability to get correctly colored helmet decals the last decade or so drives me crazy every time I watch one of their games.

Those are damn near maroon.

I agree.  It looks more like the color of the football he's holding, rather than the jersey.  How can it be that tough to find a matching red?

I can't stand when teams don't match their batting helmets to their caps.

I think I like the black helmets better. Too much of an overkill

 

 

 

Those helmets were used in a pair of pre-season exhibitions against the New York Yankees, and never saw use during the regular season. If anything, this is more vexxing, because the Marlins obviously spent the money on the helmets... so why not USE THEM?

I don't know why it's so tough. 

Before changing to their current silliness, Miami had no trouble finding the the correct shade of red for their helmet graphics.

Many other teams with red decals don't have the same problem Wisconsin does.

I've always wondered about this too.  You can't tell me they can't make a decal sticker and stripes using a lighter shade of red.

Which is actually their historical color. This candy-apple red is far too bright.

Then they should consider making their jerseys and pants that color too. It would help differentiate them from Nebraska.

I've posted this in another thread,but

 

glasgow-celtic-st-mirren-fc-16-12-2012.j

 

when half of the team in soccer that  is wearing a base layer and the other half that are wearing long-sleeves (w/ the hoops)

 

On a similar note, Arsenal have a tradition that the captain chooses whether they wear short or long sleeves in a match - all the outfield players follow his lead.

 

The problem is, this uniform look is rather spoilt when half the players in short sleeves elect to wear long sleeved undershirts. Pah.

The "i" isn't dotted.

 

Is that their new jersey this year?

Black is only used so that you can see the W form since red is such a light color it wouldn't show up otherwise (at least that's what they may be trying to tell themselves).

I don't think anybody's making that claim, even to themselves, since the stripes don't have black nor do the red numbers on the white jerseys. Those all show up just fine.

This shade of red looks so much better (although I prefer every other design element of the modern set):
