  1. Yeah you know what, I'm not even sure what the original point I was trying to make is anymore lmao Either way, I'm sure we can both agree that they were due for another rebrand/overhaul and that hopefully it should be better and a bit more timeless/less trendy this time around
  2. I know, what I'm saying is why should it make a difference if they choose the first letter of the team name over the first letter of the city they play in. But @OnWis97 gave me a satisfying answer
  3. What I meant is that it wasn't a complete makeover like when the Patriots switched to Flying Elvis for example
  4. Alright, so it's bad cause it's not old. Got it Oh fair enough. When you put it that way it makes sense. Not something I would care about but I get why some people would feel that way. The redundancy, I mean
  5. So? It represents the team. Maybe I'm biased cause my favorite team's logo is a C that stands for the team's name, but I don't see anything wrong with that And boring is subjective. Do you find the Cubs logo in your avatar boring? Cause it's not objectively much different from the Bengals' B logo
  6. To be fair, I'm not a fan of their old white uniforms either. They're the kinda team that I want to like really bad, cause I think the helmet looks cool and all, and in theory the tiger stripes should look cool too so I like the concept, but the execution feels off to me. Even on the 90s uniforms. Some teams look better in white to me, like the Dolphins, especially in mono white, but the Bengals to me look much better in all black
  7. Not a fan of having the captain letters on the right but this looks very solid. I'm sure a white version would look great and a blue version would look even better
  8. @Ridleylash Yeah the logo looks surprisingly good in those colors. Almost as if it was always meant to be in those colors and that the bronze and black version is the one that was color swapped lol
  9. I've always felt like this logo could be Tony the Tiger, if someone pissed in his Corn Flakes
  10. You're just focusing on the small differences. The colors stayed the same. The helmet is the same. The tiger stripes are still featured on the pants and arm stripes. The number are still black or white and outlined in orange. On the black jerseys at least. I do agree that the white jerseys were hit the hardest. When I play Madden, I never dress the Bengals in their away jerseys The major design elements are the same, I wouldn't say it was such a radical departure. If you described the uniform to a blind person without going too much into the details like font and paneling, they would think nothing has changed lol
  11. They look pretty similar to me. Nothing major changed, other than the side panels. If you had picked a picture where the modern jerseys are paired with white pants, they would have looked even closer. You could have posted the white jerseys instead lol. Now those were pretty different
  12. To be fair, the Rangers in the mid 90s and Sharks in the early 2000s introduced third jerseys with no waist stripes that have been well received. You could add the Flyers original black jerseys and Anaheim's white alternate from the late 90s as well, not sure how well those were received though, though. So it's not exactly a Reebok thing, it's been around for much longer than that I do agree that the Kings would look much better with waist stripes on their home jerseys. I could live without the piping but personally don't mind it that much
  13. Maybe that's just me, but I prefer a simple letter to yet another angry animal logo
  14. Can anyone explain to an outsider what is so awful about that logo?
  15. @Ridleylash I disagree with every single point This is their best look
  16. Yeah, they totally look just like the Flyers
  17. The logo did appear on cars for a short while before the bailout https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_of_Excellence
  18. Right, so the Rangers and Blue Jackets should totally switch to red helmets then? That's not a hard and fast rule, not even a guideline, just your own personal opinion. Sometimes it works better to match the helmet to the jersey
  19. Most people don't buy on-field authentics though. It doesn't matter what the players wear when 99% of the fans buy the screen printed replicas anyway. And I don't know how different the "authentics" are from the actual team-issue jerseys are in the NFL compared to hockey, but even then, they're very different in quality. I do agree that replicas used to be much nicer in the past, especially hockey and basketball jerseys
  20. Yeah I know, I thought it was obvious that I meant that I liked the first template/cut. Just a little misunderstanding, I know they're all the same jersey, on paper
  21. Wow the first version was actually not that bad imo. Still missing a bit of gold but it looks alright
  22. It was gunmetal-ish, gray-ish and de-saturated for sure Not even remotely close to any kind of sea foam green/blue
  23. What's with people and that dumb mascot? I must be getting old and jaded cause I don't find it even remotely funny or amusing. No, they don't need a mascot shoulder patch, what those jerseys need is orange numbers to fill in the outlines. And a black nameplate. And regular sized sleeve numbers
  24. They would have looked the best vs Calgary. But at this point I don't think I ever want them to wear those cursed jerseys again, which is a shame cause I think they look very nice
  25. lmao they went with meth bear instead of the spoked B. Nice
