    The Fisherman is at least interestingly bad. "Current Isles jersey but in navy" is just lazy and boring.

     

    I wouldn't necessarily assume the "80" navy jersey is the Islanders and not the white, orange, and blue "79" jersey

    Boy, leave it to Boring Lou to look at the options of "teal version of Fisherman" and "orange recolour of their classic jersey" and go with an even less interesting option. "Neither: NAVY!🙄

     

    or ya know, him just reading the room and realizing that most of the fanbase, who weren't 10 years old at the time, hates the stupid Fisherman and the timeframe of the franchise it represents. 

  3. The old set was terrible and will forever be associated with 28-3. 

     

    This set is an improvement yes (a really low bar to clear) but I'd have preferred they went back to a red helmet and let the Glanville Falcons vibe finally die off. The "ATL" on the jerseys seems wholly unnecessary but then again I'm not from Atlanta, so it's not for me I guess? 

  4. Sea Lions is good. It's regional, alliterative, and unlike a seahawk/seadog it actually exists as more than a nickname of another species. The marketing possibilities are endless. 

     

    Sockeyes is similar just to a lesser extent IMO.  Fish don't tend to be exciting as a mascot unless they're highly predatory. 

     

    Totems/Metropolitans work as well. Not as exciting as the first two, but the history is important, though I can see how the MLB team makes the latter one somewhat problematic. 

     

    Emeralds I like as well but I can see how it limits you in terms of branding and marketing. 

     

    Everything else just ranges from sounding like bad minor league to just try hard names. 

  5. Kraken sucks as a name for a team in the Pacific Northwest.  It's a mythical sea beast from Scandinavian folklore that allegedly lived in the North Atlantic.

     

    This would be the equivalent of a new team in Miami calling themselves the Narwhals.  (yes I realize those are real) 

     

    If only the Pacific Northwest had their own mythical beast lurking in the area...hmmmmmmm

    I wouldn't mind seeing the NHL franchise adopting Mariners' colors. Sharks own teal, but a Navy primary with teal/aqua secondary would be unique to the league while still exemplifying the Seattle look. 

     

    Boy do I have a uniform for you....

    Arizona had the best colour combination.  A close second was Atlanta; and Atlanta had the best logo and the nicest looking uniform overall (apart from the unnecessary "ATL" lettering on the side).  For me the Legends were like the Rams of the AAF.

     

    Salt Lake's set was beautiful also, in a traditional way.  Whereas, Arizona and Atlanta were innovative without being unsightly (which, as we have seen so many times, is not easy to do).

     

    I did like the Apollos look. The helmet was a little "different" but I'm a sucker for that purple/orange color combo going back to the days of the original Frankfurt Galaxy ;)

  8. The thing I don't get is that a jet is a pretty damn cool and inspiring thing. It's literally the embodiment of speed and power and every other desirable athletic trait. 

     

    Yet, how the NY Jets have always incorporated so little to none of that kind of imagery into their identities its a sin.  And now they've gone through yet another redesign, it still appears to be more of the same. 

     

    This team could just as well be called the "Force" or the "Express" or the "Gothamites" ;) and it wouldn't make any bit of difference uniform wise.

    In all honesty I think every aaf uniform is better than this. They were creative but not outlandish and if you remove the helmet numbers they are all better and seem more though out than any of Nike’s ideas for nfl uniforms 

     

    Maybe the Jets can just buy and recolor the Memphis Express' uniforms then.  I hear the AAF could use the money. :)
