Pro teams in need of a rebrand

So when I hear "rebrand" I think total identity overhaul. Not "the Texans would look better if they put Rangers on the home jerseys."

MLB

Arizona Diamondbacks- It just seems so lifeless. The WS era set had, at the very least, character.

Colorado Rockies- They've kept the same general look around since day one, and that is a good thing in theory...it's just so boring.

Milwaukee Brewers- The navy and old gold look drab, the current wordmarks are a mess visually.

San Diego Padres- Brown.

Tampa Bay Rays- Nothing about this works. It's lame and generic.

NBA

Atlanta Hawks- I don't know what the Hawks' identity is anymore besides "the least notable red, white, and blue team."

Dallas Mavericks- It's all starting to look dated. Retro isn't the way to go, so maybe something entirely new.

Los Angeles Clippers- Embrace orange and powder blue. The rest will fall into line.

Minnesota Timberwolves- This team's watered a once-great identity down so much they don't even really have one at all.

Toronto Raptors-???? I'm not fond of the new logo, but maybe the uniforms can salvage it.

NFL

Atlanta Falcons- One of the first piped and panelled outings, the whole thing is incredibly dated.

Denver Broncos- See above.

Miami Dolphins- Their logo looks like something you'd see a cruise line using. On top of that? They need more orange.

Philadelphia Eagles- The midnight green looks terrible, and I've never liked the number font.

San Diego Charger- Pick any previous uniform set. Any one. It'll be an improvement.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers- I feel like saying "go back to the old uniforms" wouldn't be enough of a departure from the current stuff to constitute a rebrand, but I'm counting it anyway. The elements may be the same, but the original did it so much better.

NHL

Anaheim Ducks- I don't know if they need more orange, or if they just need to bite the bullet and go retro, but the current set is just dull and lifeless.

Carolina Hurricanes- Stop dressing up like the Maple Leafs in Red Wings colours.

Pittsburgh Penguins- Skating Penguin retro please.

San Jose Sharks- Retro set would be an improvement. Really they need to strip everything down, lose the orange fetish, lighten the teal, and lose the phobia of striping.

Tampa Bay Lighting- Stop dressing up like the Red Wings in Maple Leafs colours.

Cowboys, Titans, Patriots, Panthers, Chargers should go back to powder blue. I honestly love the bucs rebrand except for the font and 'bucs' on the sleeve.

There can't be that many teams wearing it. I say panthers get a blue jersey but with current color, Pats navy resemble American flag more (their unis need the upgrade) Titans need something done for sure, Cowboys can't change anything without a riot, and I agree on the Chargers.

I've discussed the Padres a bunch. I think they need to be Brown (and orange!)

a few others:

MLB

  • Brewers: Drab colors, bad cap logo, overdone wordmark/numbers (drop shadow), stupid number font, fanbase wearing a different look. I don't love BiG but given what I've seen of fans at their games, it's probably their only alternative.
  • Rangers: Overdone font is way too busy. I have hated their cap from day 1. I suppose they could clean themselves up without a "rebrand" but I would rather they move toward their original look.

NBA

  • Mavs: Very popular look that I've hated since day 1. I kinda think of it as the poster child for the trend away from vibrant colors. It's a "soulless" as a team uniform can be.
  • T-Wolves: They are not quite "Mavs" bland, but the Mavs seem to be a team they keep following. Green and blue and ultimately dropping the green in favor of black and silver. I'd like to see them go with blue/green and maybe a trace of silver. Recolor the alt log and make it the primary (working in "Minnesota Timberwovles, of course...ugh).
  • Hawks: The Hawks are kinda the Padres of the NBA...they've sort of let their look devolve from "unique and distinguishable" step-by-step toward "blending in." I love the brown Padres and I love the Red/Yellow (no black) Hawks.

NFL

  • Eagles: Is this a "rebrand"? Kelly and silver...no black. 1980s helmet. Jersey with those colors and some sort of not-too-out-there striping for today's template.
  • Ravens: Black and purple just don't work, IMO. Not enough contrast. The gold helps some but I almost consider them the Mavs of the NFL. And then there's the helmet logo reverse side (though they can fix it by just dumping the "B"). I wish they'd not been so successful over their short history; maybe something would have happened...but maybe not...I don't see "Ravens" as a name that would lead the team to picking vibrant colors.

NHL

  • Ducks: Uninspired. The asymmetry. The wordmark. More orange would be nice, but a unique green and orange would be beautiful. Some of the concepts we've seen around here would be top-10 looks in the league

The Texans would look stupid if they put Rangers on the home jerseys.

D'oh. That's what I get for message boarding past midnight.
