    Here in Texas, half of the population wants to secede from the union. Maybe Quebec and Texas could team up to form their own Frankenation. Quebexas.

    The first time I ever heard about the overuse of gray facemasks was on this forum. I now can't think about anything else when I'm watching an NFL game, if one of the teams sports a gray facemask. Hoping that it will be therapeutic, I have collected here every NFL helmet that features an inappropriate gray facemask. For the purposes of this thread, a gray facemask is considered inappropriate if gray or silver is not a major part of the team's color scheme. I'll also list suggestions for what color I think the facemask could or should be instead of gray, in order of personal preference. Here's the list (in alphabetical order): Arizona Cardinals Alternatives: red, black, white Buffalo Bills Alternatives: red, blue, white Cleveland Browns Alternatives: white, brown, black Indianapolis Colts Alternatives: blue, white New York Giants Alternatives: white, red, blue San Francisco 49ers Alternatives: red, black, white Wow, only 6! I thought there were more. Not bad. All these images come from Sportslogos.net, so you'll have to ask Chris why the Giants have a different style helmet logo image from the rest (to show off the number on the front?). A special shoutout goes to the 49ers and Browns, who recently switched away from a perfectly good facemask to an inappropriate gray facemask. (I guess the Bills did, too, but the Niners' and Browns' switches seem somehow like much graver offenses.) Of the 6, I find the Carindals' gray facemask to be the most jarring—especially in their road whites. And, for the record, the Cowboys and Raiders also sport gray facemasks, but both teams have gray or silver as one of their main colors, so they get a pass (though I think it would be interesting to see the Raiders in black facemasks). Happy Super Bowl.

    Ahh, marketing speak. Spinning on its axis? Really? Can you smell what you're shoveling? There are parts of this I like, but overall it just feels muddled and not thought out well. It's like the put the pieces of the puzzle together completely wrong. At least you can't see their tenuous link to the past, since the red disappears on the black.

    Tenuously at best, I'm sure... much like the Cosmos. I like teams incorporating the past; the red as an homage is cool. But I hate it when teams pretend they're the same team that played many years ago when they're clearly not.

    I thought the crest was a downgrade on first glance too. But having sat with it for a while I'm actually starting to appreciate it. It's got the ball representing San Jose (and the Bay Area) on the California coast which is that white diagonal line. The white line also is an obvious allusion to the grandaddy fault of them all the San Andreas which cuts across the region at roughly that angle. The empty space is the pacific (or pacific plate), the chevrons the striated land (or North American plate). They've finally incorporated the team's founding year. The only thing I can really knock about it is the lack of full name. I don't like using the nickname.

    Don't mean to step on the OP's toes...but I posted all of the right-side official helmet graphics on my blog a while back...seems like a good opportunity to show a true comparison: The intent is for the Raiders' mask to match the helmet...doesn't work in reality, since the Silver-Blue they use (they really do use a Silver-Blue paint) doesn't match the flat Gray of the masks...

    Yes, in a way. This thing is iconic and was a merchandising monster. You saw that thing everywhere. How many webbed foot Ds do you see around? It was too associated with the older Disney brand, but I think it would've fit very well with the redesign. Do you know what the term "underrated" means? Because I find it hard to believe that this jersey fits that designation.I agree in a way. It does get love, but is always overshadowed by the Hawks, Habs or Bruins. Depending on one's mood for the day, this beauty could easily be ranked #1 in the NHL.

    First up, the Austin Aeros. I had almost total control over this team's aesthetic- they were originally the Waco Whales, but opted to move for the coming season. This is a club who languish near the bottom of the A-League table, but have some of the league's best young talent, indicating they will likely be among the leaders in the near future. We are currently finishing up the 2015 season, and they are in 7th place. Attacking midfielder Narciso Lajes is 21 years old and already among the better players in the league, and is a favourite for this season's Turner Cup, awarded to the best young player in the league. The Aeros had a very young fanbase in Waco, drawing heavily on the support of students from Baylor. They hope they will be able to tap into a similar market in Texas's biggest college town.

    Minnesota United Minnesota United was one of the original NASL franchises that survived the rough period for the league. The Loons were trying to make the jump to the MLS before the league chose San Antonio, and the MLS stopped expansion at 24. The decisive factor was that Minnesota couldn’t get a deal done for a new stadium. They continued playing at the National Sports Center in Blaine, but continued their search in the Twin Cities. Their focus was building up the reserves in the meantime. The team hired a Dutch manager to put at the helm trying to end their 3 season playoff drought in 2016. He brought a former player striker from a 2nd division Dutch side to build around. Complemented by some MLS players, the team missed the playoffs by 2 points to the Tampa Bay Rowdies, the Soccer Bowl champs that year. Their first home grown player came the next season, a goalkeeper from St. Cloud that made an immediate difference. The team regressed in play, due to a flimsy defense. He threatened to leave the club if there wasn’t a focus on defense in the offseason. The club sniped a free agent center defender from Atlanta, with another youth LB coming up, the team improved slightly. Before the 2018 season, the team found a location in St. Paul for an 18,000 seat stadium, paid for by a large sponsorship deal with 3M, donations from the fans, and from the front office. The stadium was much bigger than the stadium in Blaine, so getting more fans was a priority. The team did more in the community, and ran shuttles to the National Sports Complex from the cities. This increased traffic to the site, and the club grew slightly. The stadium deal turned some heads and 10,000 people were showing up every game in Blaine. The first season was in 2020, and to celebrate, United went out and bought a few good players. A Spanish midfielder was brought in, and an attacking mid from the Charleston Battery was brought up. A few more youth products came in to help. They were selected as the favorite to win the cup. A few mediocre months led to the team sneaking into the playoffs, only to be defeated by Indy in the first round. The team was selling 12,000 tickets a game, which was due to going up against the Twins on a game by game basis. The manager was on a hot seat to produce results in 2021. After a scouting mission, a Ligue 2 midfielder from Cameroon was lured away and offered a starting spot in the Twin Cities. That was the missing piece in the puzzle. The team finished 15 games clear of .500, and coasted to the first seed in the NASL playoffs.The team went on to lift the Soccer Bowl trophy, facing little adversity. The home grown goalkeeper was the league MVP, shutting down almost everyone. He was bought by DC United, leaving a hole in the back. An USL player was brought in as relief. The Loons never experienced the same kind of season. Everything was perfect in 2021, but have fluctuated for the most part. The loyal fans of the Twin Cities have sold out 3M Park the last 5 seasons. The focus has been mostly on youth, to cut down salary, sell the state on pro soccer, and to use the great facility in Blaine to bring up players. An English striker was brought in for the 2030 season, hoping to be the stud in front for United. They are behind about 8 teams in the promotion predictions, but anything is possible. I wanted a plaid team in here somewhere. My idea was to have an all light blue look, but the plaid/no plaid looked weird. From there, I sort of based them off that other decent United club in the UK. The clash kit is pretty similar to the current duds.

    Meh. The older I get, the less I care what a few random teenagers think about what I choose to wear to a sporting event. For the most part, the people making these "lists" of jersey "faux pas" are the same type of people who can't even navigate a public restroom without a laundry list of self-imposed "rules" that they must follow in order to appease their deep-rooted insecurities that would shatter their world to a million pieces if they happened to make eye contact with a fellow restroom user. Life is too short to worry about stuff like this.

    Not exactly true to your criteria of ONE team, but if you're a uniform traditionalist and like clean, crisp looks, it's hard to beat Nebraska on the road at Penn State. It's a perfect blend of red, white and blue. The helmets practically match with a single stripe and matching facemask color, and you have an alternating combo of color/white for the pants and jerseys. Also, since Penn State wears all-white on the road, this look isn't quite as good when the games are played in Nebraska. Same goes for Wisconsin - since they rarely break out the red pants, but NU wears them full-time on the road. Is it a homer pick? Sure. But it's also one of the more visually stimulating Big Ten games since both teams have equal balance of white and their respective colors in their uniform sets.

    They don't "work". It's an extracurricular activity that they already get nearly $100,000 in free education for, not to mention the best job exposure known to man. Ask the thousand of other students working 2-3 jobs to pay for school and living if they think these athletes are being treated unfairly.

    It is when you count all the scholarships for all the student-athletes who receive them. Plus how are you going to determine which athletes and which sports get counted as employees? Plus if they're considered employees they should have to pay back that scholarship since they're not students anymore. Then they're technically ineligible to play since they're no longer students. They have it better than any other student at these schools and yet they still act like the oppressed ones.

    Thanks for all the responses guys. I was definitely trying to incorporate their throwback look and the new alternate together to form something different. I definitely want to give most of the NHL a more modern yet traditional look. I think that is the perfect look for hockey jerseys in this day in age. I think we're slowly getting out of the throwback faze and slowly getting more sharp and modern......of course Carolina and Dallas are two examples of how that might not be right, but I mean inthe sports world in general.
