Uniform matchups that never happened

Recommended Posts

Oilers and Ravens were in the same division until the Browns came back in 1999. They should've played twice as the Oilers.

You're right, they played twice in '96 but I cannot find any images on Google of this matchup where the Oilers wore blue.

You might be right too. I did a search for that specific date and the only picture with a Raven player and Eddie George has him wearing the white jersey, thought eh information attached says Baltimore Stadium. Unfortunately both teams were playing in stadiums they weren't staying in long term so there's nothing on the walls to identify what stadium they are at.

The Kings played against other strange jerseys in their 1 year Burger King jersey (Anaheim and Vancouver alternates), but never against the Isles. If only...

If the Nordiques hadn't moved after 1995, we would have gotten potentially the goofiest hockey uni matchup ever:

They played six times between the arrival of the Ravens and the departure of the Oilers. The Oilers wore light blue in the '96 matchup in Houston: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/ravens/week3.htm

I could not for the life of me find a picture that showed what they wore for their lone matchup in Memphis, and the team wore white at home when they played at Vanderbilt: http://www.knoxnews.com/news/titans-predators-celebrate-15-years-nashville

Not really. While it's out there compared to their previous uniforms, the Nordiques' proposed uniforms are quite conservative compared to the Fishsticks uniforms.

One matchup that never happened was Wildwing and the Fishsticks. That will be the name of my future Glam Metal Band. :P I think that would have been easily considered a classic matchup on this site... for all the wrong reasons. XD

This was wasted on the Panthers...when a matchup against another similar-era throwback would have been great to see:

A color-on-color game with the Packers would have been great!

Or Bears:

They had a chance to wear them against the Steelers, but did not.

Really? I didn't think it was wasted, I like that match up and the one with the chargers when they wore their regular helmets in 2013-14. On an unrelated note I remember this girl I know was like the panthers are gonna lose cause i know the panthers and i was like no the redskins are gonna lose. I know the redskins. I forget who won that game...wait it was Carolina. after that the redskins won 7 in a row.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here, but I don't think the '29 Yankees ever played Bo's Raiders.

In addition, that was during the Peyton/Tee Martin/Championship era at Tennessee and the Oilers were on a huge downtick at the time. I was still an Oiler fan for the first two seasons they were in Tennessee as it was hard to let go. I remember one of the few decent sized crowds being a preseason game where most people showed up just to watch Heath Shuler play for the Redskins.

Nah, I think they played against each other in at least one game during the 2099 season.

Was that Quebec jersey an alternate that never saw the light of day? This is the first time I've ever seen that one.

They were part of a proposed redesign of the team that never came to fruition because of the move to Colorado. Here's the accompanying light version:

Heath Shuler was on the Saints for the two years the Oilers were in Tennessee. The Saints and Oilers played each other the first preseason game of 1997, and the crowd was 22,000...smaller than the 24,000 person crowd that watched the Redskins and Oilers one week later.

If I remember correctly,the 1996 Eagles never faced the Tennessee Oilers.

Most every team in 1996 never faced the Tennessee Oilers :)
