  1. +1 Sure the original Sabres uniforms manage to spell out "Buffalo Sabres" but that's about the only thing they had going for them. The striping was lifted directly from the Leafs and the logo is just poor. With the 1995 rebrand, they finally a distinctive uniform set with beautifully rendered logos. -1If by beautiful you mean hediously ugly and not at all representive of the team's nickname. Because nothing says "distinctive" like using a color scheme already used by three teams (and soon to be a fourth) And the striping just being the Leafs is a straight up lie. So you hate the Canucks home uniforms because the striping is just the Devils minus the shoulder yoke? I'm not even a huge fan of the original Sabres uniforms (the buffalo is poorly rendered and the striping color inconsistency is horrendous), but the logo still had more appeal than the goathead. Seriously, WTF is that on the bottom right side of the logo? And blue and yellow (not navy) is one of the greatest color schemes ever. The Sabres have never truly had a good uniform, but the goathead is the worst (I honestly prefer the Buffaslug to it, at least that one had some appeal and a better color scheme). I've read you praise these uniforms multiply times, and it honestly feels like you just hate the original logo (and obviously the slug), so you just latch onto the goathead because you feel like you have to like at least one Sabres look. That's just my two cents, maybe you really like that hideous crap.
  2. I don't think the Broncos have ever had a good logo. Love those Orange Crush unis though. I like the idea of a team "owning" side panels, but their current panels are rather awkward looking.
  3. The league screws up the entire alignment for them, and yet Red Wing fans will still whine and complain that the league is against them.
  4. Nothing says loyal like attendance south of 14 thousand with astronomically cheap ticket prices. Bettman needs to stop the lies and use the term "we" when talking about Coyotes fans, because only that explains his love affair with this team while letting Atlanta leave the moment they felt like it.
  5. Yay, more financial leaching from the Coyotes! Who needs schools and hospitals anyways?
  6. Does anyone else think that looks really sharp? It does except for the logo, but that's the only thing that was going to be new about those uniforms.
  7. Sorry but I love the double blue to be honest, but the striping's a bit better (especially on the roads)
  8. IMO the Phillies, if they're going to stick with their red look, just need to make the stars on their Whiz Kid era uniforms blue and be done with it. If they did that they might have a top 10 MLB look. Care to explain how blue pinstripes look amateurish? You must think the Mets home looks amateurish too, right? not to mention, taking blue pinstripe to be any shade of the colour blue, the yankees as well.The shade is too bright. I think it makes the uniform look cheap. If I'm not mistake, the mets have a darker shade. By blue, I mean blue. Not navy.Apparently you are a mistake, because it's the exact same color. Do you really expect Majestic to have two different royal blue pinstripe shades?

  10. The Stars have won of the bottom 5 NHL logos, there's nothing cool or clever or classy about it whatsoever.
  11. Washington Wizards is the most recent major pro name I can think of with NO meaning behind it.
  12. How the **** can it be done properly? Don't give me the crap that a little patch wouldn't be too bad, it's still horrendously out of place and a disgusting symbol of greed.Obviously, it's clear to see how it can be viewed as "greedy", and I'm not hoping for it in any way, but there are companies out there that desperately want to advertise in avenues that are as marketable as NBA jerseys, so you could argue that denying them that privilege for something as silly as aesthetic value is also greedy.. Like I said, I'm not for it, and I'm a huge fan of maintaining the aesthetic integrity, but this is a business we're taking about, and they're in business to make money Since NBA teams are moving toward roundel usage anyways I think either something like MLS/Premier League do with their uniforms wouldn't be the worst thing on Earth.So roundels somehow make ads okay? I must say I do not understand that logic whatsoever.Also in a reasonable world, the NBA would lose money from ads because the they'd turn fans off, but obviously most sports fans these days have become drones who will blindly accept anything their team shoves at them. No. What I am saying is we have a template for how to make uniforms work with ads, be unique and still display the team logo. Do you think EPL fans are pissing and moaning like "Wow I'd love to buy this Man U logo if it wasn't for this dang corporate logo on the front. I guess I won't buy it!"And if you think the number of fans who will stop buying gear because of sponsors on the jerseys will outweigh the money a theoretical sponsor would bring to team/league I've got a bridge to sell you. That does not exist and never, ever will. I'm aware fans will still by the crap, but that's because most fans are stupid with their alligeance and will eat up any s*** the team throws at them.I know they'll make money off it, because fans can never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER stand up to their team's crap and tell them to **** off for once. All I know is that I would never even consider rooting for a team that had any ad on their uniform, because no matter how "tasteful" it is you're no longer cheering for a team, you're cheering for a brand. I know this'll eventually happen in all sports, which is why I know my days as a sports fan are probably normal, because of greed.

  15. Other than the words "win" being underscored, I could disagree more. I don't hate the idea of the wordmark, but the execution is incredibly dated. Also it seems like people are never happy with scripts. People complaining cursive like the Phillies or Orioles are "too perfect", yet when something is hand drawn with character like the Twins people say it's ugly and dated.
  16. 100% agree. I can understand the nostalgia associated with the interlocking TC, but the M is miles ahead. Much better consistency with the home "Twins" wordmark. If they made a "Minnesota" wordmark in the same style they would have had their perfect set. The thing is their current Twins wordmark sucks, so trying to match it gives you a rather crappy logo
  17. That's about as far from an unpopular opinion as it gets (unless you're talking about their much maligned alts)
  18. Yeah, USA's 1996 World Cup set has been my fav so far. While the more heritage look ('10 + '14) works for an alt/throwback (as Canada adds sometimes for a single game during a tournament), using them as primary looks uninspired. I'm looking forward to the next World Cup, hopefully everyone's unis are worthwhile. I heard there's ads, so they're dead on arrival.
  19. Every team should wear one home and one road uniform, that's it. Hard to have team "identities" nowadays when teams have a months worth of alternates in their closet.
  20. I think the new Bucks looks stinks. What's objectively good about the design? The scripts bring a new meaning to the word generic, and the random squares on top of the side panels but no where else is bad design. The color scheme's okay, but I HATE the random blue in it. The only honestly good thing about it is that the holes in the uniform are shaped liked M's, but that's an almost impossible to notice minor detail during any action.
  21. I do agree with you about the logo, however, I feel like the Clips uniforms still lack that "it" that makes them great uniforms. (The number placement is weird to me.) Troll. If you like them, I've got plenty of junior high notebooks with designs very reminiscent of the abortions the Clippers just s:censored:hat unto the world. So wait, the Clippers are ting birth control pills and/or dead fetuses into the world? Don't you mean abominations?Pretty much, yeah. These logos are dead on arrival just like an aborted fetus, and are about as appealing looking.

  23. The New York Islanders have the worst logo in American pro sports. If it were released nowadays, it would get Thunder-like reception.
