  1. Yeah I think an upgraded version of their red helmet would be a much better fit for them. These concepts aren't perfect, but it'll give you some idea: There was no reason to ditch red helmets for the OJ Simpson era white ones. On top of that, the only other teams with a red helmet is the Chiefs and the Redskins (burgundy). A royal blue helmet would look good too. The only other team with a royal blue helmet is the Giants. These concepts aren't perfect, but they give you an idea.
  2. But like you said, those pinstripes are subtle and it doesn't stick out when worn without a jacket. These are a different story:
  3. These pics can be "yuck", but the point is suggesting that a Kelly green and black scheme makes them look like they're copying another team makes no sense. A new set using this color scheme could look great on them, tie into their history, and still be a unique look in the NFL.
  4. Here's what I would love to see for future and potential expansion teams: NHL: Seattle: Unique shade of blue, maybe like the old Seahawks' steel blue, and lime green. Either that, or navy and lime green. MLB: Portland: Red and black, or red and green. Vegas: Dark gray and gold. Maybe with black trim. Similar to the Golden Knights. Charlotte: Carolina blue and black or dark gray. Montreal: Will most likely be another blue and red scheme, which would be brutal.
  5. It's no issue at all, to me. What else could they be? Green? The blue looks like it does in all these MLB uniforms with the color- boring and safe.
  6. Again- the point is what if all these teams had letters on their helmet instead of logos since the BEGINNING, not if they switched out their logos today. Letters on all these football helmets is still hard to imagine. The comparison with baseball cap letters and football helmet logos still doesn't make sense. And if you really think a W would be an improvement over the current Skins logo, I don't think I'm going to even bother debating this any further.
  7. I'm not sure what this proves. One football helmet logo that happens to look similar to one baseball cap logo. And? Letters on football helmets are not the norm the same way it is on baseball caps. The Giants use letters, but the Jets don't need it. But your argument is based how crappy logos would look on the Bears' and 49ers' helmets. Letters was just the best choice for them back then. Tbh, it's a shame a team called the Bears is stuck with a boring C logo, because a bear logo would be much easier to design today. Boring letters should be left to teams with names like the Packers. Imagine the Eagles helmet with a P logo or the Skins helmet with a W logo. Philly and Washington, DC are "iconic", but those teams didn't choose letters.
  8. The point here is that they don't need "LA" on their football helmets. Football helmet logos and baseball cap logos are two different things.
  9. Idk if we should compare football helmet logos with baseball cap logos. The Dodgers' LA cap logo is iconic, but that doesn't mean the Rams and Chargers both need "LA" on their helmets.
  10. Looks better than the actual jersey.
  11. The original Buccaneers colors, or something similar, would be a good look in MLB. I guess it could work for the Rays, fully embracing the Sun Ray theme. A slightly darker powder blue and yellow would look good too:
  12. Well the commissioner did say the stadium issues with Tampa Bay and Oakland need to be addressed first before they expand.
  13. This post would make sense if it was a case of "black for black sake" and black wasn't a part of their color scheme from day one. And there's still plenty of blue throughout- socks, stripes, collar, accessories. What more are you looking for? This isn't some college football "blackout" uniform. This is the Carolina Panthers showing off their colors.
  14. Now see that looks good to me only because the blue and black are together, and the silver here just happens to look like flat gray. The silver on the Panthers just looks tacky to me. A darker gray than what the Lions' use would work best for the Panthers, if anything. When I look at pics that show off their beautiful blue and black, the silver just looks unnecessary to me:
  15. The Astros sucked in their first couple years in their current uniforms. The Marlins have plenty of room for improvement regardless.
  16. I think the silver is unnecessary, and only takes away from that blue popping off the black: I would go with something like that Tar Heels, with a minimum use of white. I would even rather them go with something with a dark gray instead of silver. Something that will allow that blue to pop.
  17. Is a jet's tail the one part of the plane that would make a good helmet logo by itself? And then it doesn't even look like a jet tail. Idk what it looks like. Maybe some type of drawing protractor? Then then the jet tail logo going down the pants just doesn't make any sense to me.
  18. Hate this design. It literally looks like a fresh pile of dog turd. IF they want to do something like this at all, I think a very subtle version of this maybe could work: But like I said, a very toned-down version of that. Make the lines/space more subtle.
  19. I agree, but it's still a red dominant look overall and the additional navy makes it look better to me. Maybe make the numbers navy and the script red.
  20. I think baseball fans in the Carolinas will be supportive of their new MLB team whether it's called the Knights or something else. I don't think that's significant.
