  1. What would be a good tertiary color? Do you like the plain-ness of the logo on the hat?
  2. It's hard to say without seeing the uniforms yet, but I wonder what that brown hat would look like with some orange with the yellow. I don't know if an orange letter or what, but I feel the yellow and brown would benefit from some orange with it. The brown is good, the yellow is ok and then that's it. Pretty plain.
  3. After looking at the asg navy and gold set again, I wish they went that route with a Padres script on the front instead of the interlocking sd instead of the brown.
  4. I know people who don't like the Padres military uniforms never will, but growing up in the area it makes sense. I can think of 6 different bases in the San Diego area off the top of my head and I'm sure I didn't count a few such as the military hospital at Balboa. San Diego also has the biggest veteran population in the country (not that we like wearing camo). I personally do not like camo anything, but being from the region I understand the reasons for them doing military Sundays and have no issue with it. Also if you think the Marine recruits are just having a good ol' time at the ballpark eating whatever and living it up I guarantee their handlers are watching and are relieved of any food they may have eaten when they get back to the depot.
  5. For everybody that wants the San Diego team to be named the destroyers, I believe the fleet fits and sounds better than destroyers ever would. If we were going to relate it to the Navy the fleet represents all aspects of the "team" instead of just one class of ship. It takes positions on offense, defense and special teams together to be successful on the football field and likewise it takes all aspects of the Navy to be successful. The term fleet conjures up this notion of teamwork way more than just a single ship class does.
  6. Wow Chicago and Boston how original.
  7. I remember growing up and going to lots of Padres games. To me the brown pinstripe uniforms represent losing. Now I know the Padres have never been anything to write home about, but I will always remember the magic of the '98 Padres and the orange and navy uniforms. I think these should be in their rotation as a throwback. Honestly I get the desire to have them be a predominately brown team, but I agree with Dave Winfield when he called the brown and yellow the pee and poop colored uniforms. I honestly think the PCL Padres colors are fantstic, but the brown could work as long as there's no too much kind of like the '71 uniforms pictured above. I think either go brown and include some sort of mission imagery, or go San Diego with two different shades of blue and sand with some wave type imagery. They do need to come up with a new script no matter what they do.
  8. Man those old Marlins uniforms look great.
  9. I don't dislike all of them, but the majority of state and city flags are horrible. A few are really good, but lots are a cluttered mess, just have a state seal or a mixture of both. As for the flag on the Flames jersey, it completely clashes with their color scheme and it just doesn't look good. I think the Orioles flag patch works.
  10. I'm not a fan of any of these. Some of them actually make me cringe. Yuck.

    Ran across this on the sharks instagram page. Shoulder logo I'm guessing.
  12. I'm not the biggest football fan but of the games I watch it sure seems like the majority of the defensive players like to use their helmets and by extension their heads as the principal point of contact. It's foolish to blame the NFL or helmet manufacturers because you chose to participate in an activity that is inherently bad for you. The trade off of choosing that particular profession in life is that there is the risk of short and long term injuries.
  13. The choice is so obvious that you all are missing it. The Seattle Geoducks.
