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.

I was half joking about the random black drop shadow but in reality, I think there may be some grain of truth.

 

I see it all the time with client suggestions, and my with my students. Something isn't popping the way they want it to so the gut reaction solution is add a black outline or drop shadow. Unfortunately, more often than not, the true problem is the logo/design is simply sub par and no amount of outlining will fix that problem.

I'm sure that RBK Edge jerseys have been mentioned earlier on, but IMO the Barrie Colts have the worst edge jerseys. There are two things that really bother me about these jerseys:

 

1- The stripes don't go all the way around the arm, only the top half.

2- The Edge piping goes towards the back and don't extend to the bottom of the jersey.

That seems like more than just a "small detail".

It was just pointed out in another thread that the Jags sleeve number is short one of the outlines of the front/back numbers.  TV numbers not matching front/back numbers is a pet peeve.  The original flying elvis Pats had plain white TV numbers and red-on-white front/back numbers and I hated it.

This one isn't the best example, but I agree that some things on this thread are ' what you don't like about jerseys and logos' rather than small details.

The Seahawks TV numbers also don't have any outlines or the feather pattern on them:

And the reason gordie_delini gave was that is was due to "visibility issues". Doesnt that kinda say its poor design if you have certain features on one set of numbers but you cant do it on another?

No because when the Irish came to Ireland and first came in contact with the leprechaun people, they didn't take their land away and force them to move west. Instead, the two groups learned to assimilate peacefully. However, certain tribes of the leprechaun refused to taint the pure blood and moved north into the forests of Ireland, only to be seen rarely, usually at the same time of a rainbows appearance and occasionally at the factories of Lucky Charms.

They're too small to have the feather pattern, it would just look cluttered up, but there's no excuse why they shouldn't have the green outlines.

Something about the Dodgers' numbers bother me. They look too thin. There used to be a white outline around them, right? When they got rid of it, they should have made the numbers a little thicker.

Actually they don't need the green outlines on the TV numbers, that would make them more difficult to read.

Not sure if this was mentioned, but the Rams primary logo; the horns and the body/head fit together, but area around the horns, it's just a blue mass. Never noticed it really until today.

This new Verizon football commercial with the Ravens' Jacoby Jones is going to bug me this year. When he's running in the crowd he has white pants. Then he's being watched on the cell phone picture and he's wearing black pants.

Other than that, the commerical annoying in general, and they always play it twice in the same commercial break. As if once wasn't more than enough. :rolleyes:

This is definitely a small detail that bothers me. The Rangers centre ice logo for this season.

 

IMG_4354.jpg

 

The logos in centre ice are both pointed in the same direction. Most other rinks have them pointed in opposite directions. They are also missing the OHL logo in the Rangers logo too. It just looks weird IMO.

Agreed. The random OHL logo in the Rangers' logo is part of its junior league charm.

In the last version of the uniforms, the bolts all moved in the same direction.

San-Diego-Chargers-screensaver_1.png

Look at the angles of the jagged lines. The helmet logos match the shoulder bolts: from the front, they extend back, then angle down and forward before continuing back again.

With this new one, the shoulder bolts are flipped upside down, so the jagged angles go the opposite way as those on the helmet:

Philip+Rivers+San+Diego+Chargers+v+New+O

The helmet bolts still go back and then down, but now the shoulder bolts go back and then up.

Hideous.

They took a great repeating motif and ruined it.

They wouldn't be the Chargers if they didn't take something nice and make it unsightly :(
