Looking at the new Diamondbacks uniforms, I couldn't help noticing that the light teal they use in their (non-throwback) alternates looks really cool, and would go great as a secondary color with their dark red should they eventually choose to go in that direction. Overall, though, the set looks awful---with striping that stops abruptly, and tacky-looking "sublimation" (actually mostly just bad gradients IMO). That got me thinking---what were other awful looks that had one super cool feature? Like, the Bengals' current unis look awful but their helmet's a classic. So, two-ish questions: 1. Do you agree with me about the Diamondbacks looking good in red, black, and teal? 1A. Would they look better demoting the black to tertiary and promoting the teal to primary? AND 2. What are some other examples of terrible sets with awesome (not redeeming, but still awesome) features? Mods, feel free to move this if there's already an appropriate thread for these musings.
Week one was filled with controversy and mod edits. Let's see if we can do better in week two, folks. Another fairly average week. A couple great games, a couple good games, and fortunately for us, only one truly ugly game. No disasters this week. So without further adieu, let's get to the games... Best: We had another very tight battle for the #1 spot and a real shocker at #5. 1. Jets at Packers: As I mentioned last week, the Jets have one of the best all-white looks in the league. The Packers have one of the best looks in football. Throw them together and we have uniform perfection. Games don't look any better than this. 2. Saints at Browns: Fortunately, the Saints didn't ruin this classic by going mono-black. Even better, the Browns didn't ruin it by wearing their God-awful brown pants. Sadly, this is probably the last season we'll be able to enjoy these wonderful Browns uniforms - at least until the requisite 5 years pass at which point the Browns will realize the awful mistake they made by "modernizing" and return to these classics. 3. Bears at 49ers: (fixing a glaring omission on my part) The Bears have the best home look in the NFL. The Bears road look, while pretty good, isn't in the same ballpark as their home look. If any team needs to go to all white on the road, it's the Bears. Don't get me wrong, I think the Bears road uniform is definitely in the upper tier, but all white would be much better. That, and I think it makes them look a little wimpy. That said, the Bears road look combined with the perfect 49ers uniform makes this a top three game. Put the Bears in all white and this one goes straight to #1. 4. Eagles at Colts: Overall, the Eagles look is one that I consider above average, but not great. It's OK. But I do really like their all-white look. In my opinion, it's the best combo they have. The Colts always look great. This game turned out to be a lot better looking than I thought it would. I figured the Eagles would be wearing the green pants. They didn't and thank goodness. 5. Lions at Panthers: One of the side effects of teams ruining "modernizing" their uniforms is that looks that were once considered average start to look better. It's improvement through attrition, I guess. Case in point: the Detroit Lions. The Lions don't have an awful look, but it's still a few tweaks from being a great look. Yet thanks to teams like Tampa Bay, the Lions move up on the best list simply because the Bucs look horrible. Anyway, the Panthers look good and the Lions looked OK. In an average week like this one, that's good enough for the #5 spot on the best list. Honorable mention: Seahawks at Chargers: No, that's not a typo. No, I'm not high. Normally, I'm not a fan of the look of either of these looks. The Seahawks are a regular member of my worst list. The Chargers are so boring that they never make either list. But there was something about this game. It just looked good to me. The Seahawks went with the best possible combo of a really bad uniform, and damn if the Chargers in all white wasn't the perfect look to offset Seattle. Separately, neither of these looks are likely to make the best list, but throw them together and somehow it works. Yeah, I'm as shocked as you are. Worst: Only one ugly game this week - and it was ugly in every possible way. 1. Rams at Buccaneers: What else needs to be said about the Bucs? How about this? Their numbers remind me of a digital watch I got for Christmas - back in the early 80's. The Rams have a perfectly fine look that they insist on ruining by wearing those horrible blue pants. That's it for this week. We'll have another exciting/infuriating edition next week.
If you think about the NBA and the consensus good looking teams you probably think of around 10-15. How is that possible? With all of the concepts that people see and think are great or with all the retro looks people want back, how is it that a team can still look horrible? The NBA has been around since the 1940s. That's 70 years! The Sixers for example have a bad look, but great retro looks that they can switch to at anytime. If they switch to the 1970s jerseys, BOOM they are now a top 10 look. If the Magic contact that user R_E_D_D_I_T and get permission to use his Magic logo that everyone thinks is sick, boom they're top 10 too. It just amazes me. How about the Hawks? That 1980s Wilkins look in great. Use it!
