  1. If they were an Original Six team, they'd be okay (but still unspectacular). What drags the uniform down for people, including myself, is that a non-traditional franchise in Tampa Bay is playing Original Six Dress-up and borrowing heavily from the Maple Leafs and Red Wings to do so. Not to mention, in their rush to force in elements of a tradition they don't have, they eliminated the one defining aesthetic tradition they did have - the victory stripes. Personally, I like the rebrand because of the simplicity and the colors. The uniforms and the logo itself were made simple, which is usually better in my book. And any time we can get rid of more black, especially in hockey(thanks to the Pacific Division for making sick of black jerseys), that I will support it. It also helps that blue is my favorite color. I really don't view it as an Original Six knockoff. If that is our standard of what good hockey aesthetics is, why shouldn't teams strive to look like that. I'd give you that it's a similar look to Toronto, but does it really take more than half a second to figure out which team it is? No, not for me. Like, I've said, just because a team is new, doesn't mean like have to be ultra modern and look like crap. And to me, the victory stripes for just too miniscule, and somewhat obstructed, design feature to really mourn the loss. And for those that really love the black, there's always the alt.
  2. Bold is stuff I agree, strikethrough is stuff I disagree with. The strikethrough is what I'd expect from most. I am surprised to see how much you agree with though. And to clarify, not exclusively color-on-color, but just a lot more. This would obviously require some teams to have two non-white jerseys, which just won't work for all(Colts, Jets in NFL; Leafs, Lighting in NFL; Celtics in NBA). I just think plenty of teams lose their identity with white jerseys. Color-on-color is just way more visually appealing to me. However, the one notable exception to less that I can think of would be the Philadelphia Flyers. I'd take them in white before black any day. Haha, yeah, it's the unpopular opinion thread, post your unpopular opinions! Anyway, I just vastly prefer the white jerseys to the colored jerseys, but that's just my opinion. I do like color-on-color in moderation, though. Any particular reason why? Tradition? I may not think all that highly of soccer, but at least they've got a good system for jerseys. Tradition is part of it, yes, but the main reason is that I think that white uniforms just look better than their colored counterparts. It's a weird thing, but that's what I think. Well the big thing that bugs me is colors that don't match in uniforms. Partly why I hate the Cowboys set. If the Saints could match the throwback pants to the helmet that could just be one of the best uniforms. I hate white helmets because they never match up, in both hockey and football. From a certain distance you can't tell, but close up you can. I liked the colored helmets in hockey like the Rangers and Caps did in the WC. However, I recognize that the Dolphins and Cardinals might have too busy of decals for a colored helmet in NFL. While it might look cleaner, I'm sure they could all pull off a color. The Colts, Jets, and Bills could all invert easily. And I'm sure the Chargers and Titans could pull off a dark lid.
  3. Haha only two? Wow. Yeah I see how that will have to happen for teams with only one team color other than white like the Wings and Leafs. They would be the ones that should have a white jersey. But there's no reason a team should have to wear white if they have a light color in their scheme. Why couldn't the Predators make their yellow the road jersey and have a blue version has a home? That'd look pretty sharp to me. Think back to the Kings original purple and yellow jerseys. Why can't the Wild have just a red and green jersey? No color with clash with both. I'd fully support a European clash style system for jerseys. I'd think that could built some strong team identity if fans see more of teams colors...Perhaps a few teams could maybe have a white third. Maybe. But like I said earlier, I'd rather have the orange be primary for the Flyers, and white be clash. No black jerseys for them. Those were terrible. As far as the Coyotes go, I can't understand the hatred for the current set. And more importantly the love for the previous set. Is it some crazy 90s nostalgia, an extreme love for the unusual and rare in sports design? We all know that the Coyotes aren't an old, traditional team? But why can't they? Just because a team is new, doesn't mean they have to look like crap. There was too many colors in the previous scheme. And the crazy patterns were all over. The colors and scheme did scream Arizona, but also screamed out-of-date. However, the new red works better for Arizona and matches the Dbacks and Cardinals in similar color scheme. I don't know about other people, but I really like it when various franchises in cities use similar colors a la Pittsburg. And the striping, while traditional, looks great. And as much as a hate more and more black jerseys and loathe the spread in sports, I can stand to see the black alt. I know some don't, but I can like the running coyote. It's different. Sure the regular head would probably work fine, but why not get some variety done properly. And the more modern pattern doesn't bother me at all. It's nice. Overall the whole set works together nicely to represent Arizona. Kind of too bad it'll be gone soon. Oh wait no...Hello Seattle! But I still love the new Lightning uniforms. They're beautiful. I don't see what not to like. Eh, it could start a terrible trend. If one team does it, pretty much every team will jump on board to get in on the money craze. I really don't think the NFL needs more alternate-anything right now. Wasn't this the plan for the Seahawks at some point early on in the current rebrand? Silver at home, dark at away? But the NFL quickly nixed the idea, I believe.

  5. You don't, but that doesn't mean a classic set can't be ugly or boring. Ex: The Montreal Canadiens logo is a classic logo, but it's boring. Thank you! And just because you might not like it, doesn't mean you can't recoginize that it is classic, and shouldn't change.
  6. Oh good. I'm not disrespectful, just wrong?
  7. How did I disrespect them? I didn't even call them ugly or anything of the sort. I just said they don't look good to me. It's how I view them. It's that simple. Isn't this an opinions thread? Nice of you to determine the value of my opinion. I didn't even say I want them to change. In fact, there's only two minor things I'd like to see them alter. I recognize they're classic. However, that's only the case because of long usage, players, and many championships. However, I find problems with them. The differing logos, the white outline on the road, and the the black piping on the road(especially considering with all their great players, they've periodically added a black memorial band, which I think looks terrible with the unnecessary piping on the road sleeves). And I know it's traditional, and bordering on sacrilegious to say, but modern baseball uniforms should have NOBs. Again, I'm not saying the Yankees should adopt this look, but today's jerseys should. Those knockoff or incorrect jerseys that have Jeter on the back don't look bad. The only things I'd actually like to see changed would be the removal of the white outline and black piping on the road. It wasn't that long ago that they added the white outline anyway. I also prefer pinstriped jerseys to have scripts/logos/numbers that have an outline so as to not be the same color as the stripes. And speaking of color, they're not navy blue, midnight blue, or whatever made up shade of blue you want to call them. They wear black. I don't care what style sheets, online guides, or even they call it, it's black. I guess this is the ultimate unpopular opinion.

  9. The Yankees, while classic, don?t look great. The Mets look better without pinstripes. The Cowboys have some of the worst uniforms in the NFL. I like the Padres update. The NY Rangers look bad. Easily the worst of the original six. Every single case of drop shadow is terrible. I love the tequila sunrise jersey. Better than the majority of the jerseys worn by Houston throughout the years. I love the Burger King jerseys. Much better than the current home plate shield and arguably better than the Gretzky era set. I don't hate road pinstripes, especially on the Rockies. It works even better now that they're alone. I hate grey facemasks even on teams with grey in their color scheme. I love the nameplates on the Flyers. The Lightning and the Coyotes have never looked better than they currently do. I don?t mind vintage white. In fact, I?d welcome its use on select teams on an everyday basis. However, some color palettes just don?t work. It looked great on the Rangers yesterday, but terrible on the Flyers. I'd like to see hockey, basketball, and football go almost exclusively color-on-color. I may be biased having grown up in L.A. and following the Lakers and longing for the Kings to return to the original set, but it still looks good in many other cases. Remember the Thanksgiving game between the Pats and the Lions in their throwbacks? Beautiful. The new helmet numbers in the NHL don't bother me one bit. Numbers on the front of the jersey, such as the current Sharks and Sabres, and the former ATL thirds, are way more of an eye sore. I wish every football uniform would look something like Michigan?s did earlier with the big ?M?. I see no reason to have a number on the front of the jersey. The jersey itself already has three other spaces for numbers, plus spaces on the helmet and wristbands, etc.
