The way SB 40 was supposed to look (until the Steelers chose to wear whites).  The Seahawks whites would have looked great indoors on the Ford Stadium turf.

I forget how different that steel blue for Seattle was compared to what they use now.

The 1995-99 Patriots (with the large shoulder logos) never played the Bengals, Lions, Raiders, or Seahawks.

I liked it. I was unique to them. Now they're just another navy team. I would have been happy with Slate blue and gray with lime green accents.

 

But apparently Nike had issues with the slate blue so they pushed Seattle towards navy.

Patriots and Seahawks didn't meet in the two year overlap of the classic Seahawks and present Patriots in 2000-2001, as 1993 wastthe last time they met as fellow AFC teams in a home and home in the old fifth place schedule

This matchup didn't happen in the Super Bowl, but it's clearly not true that it "never happened" at all.

What if the Canucks never changed their uniforms in the first place...

Blue & Green vs Green & Blue.

Hated the Canucks' 'Orca Bay' uniforms but had the Whalers stayed in Hartford for at least one more season, this would've been one "whale of a game".

Another reason why the Kings should have kept their purple and gold. (Preferred the first generation look over the 80's second generation look.)

In 1994 when the AFC East and NFC Central played we missed out on seeing the Buco Bruce Buccaneers and Patriots in Flying Elvises as by the standings they wound up not playing each other that year.

Did the Orange Crush Broncos ever face the Italic-number Steelers?

No. The Broncos and Steelers both changed sets for the 1997 season.

For some reason I thought the Steelers had changed for the 96 season. My bad.

This could have been a cool-looking matchup that almost happened, but we missed it by a year.  That Hornets jersey debuted in 2002, that Grizzlies jersey was last used in 2001.

I guess in the bigger scheme of things, we also never saw a Vancouver vs. New Orleans NBA matchup.

 

 

EDIT: I guess this is a bad example because in Memphis the Grizzlies kept basically the same uniform.  Well, at least I tried.  Maybe I'll do better next time.

I don't know if it's been brought up, but we never got to see the Baltimore Ravens' inaugural uniforms, winged B-shield and all...

...face off with any team named the Cleveland Browns:

As the Ravens switched to their current bird-head logo and (largely untouched) current set in 1999 when Cleveland Browns v2.0 started. Similarly, given that the Oilers also became the Titans in 1999, no team named the Cleveland Browns has played the Oilers since 1995 and Browns v2.0 has never played a team named the Oilers (whether in Houston or Tennessee).

In 2002, the Kings swapped their primary and alternate logos on their main set and 3rd jersey. That season was also the last of the Phoenix Coyotes kachina set. The teams met 5 times with 2 games in LA. The first one was the home opener where the Kings retired Gretzky's #99 so they threw back to his white Chevy jersey. In the other match-up, LA wore their updated purple 3rd jersey.

 

Long story short, these 2 jerseys never met.

In 2002-03, Portland/Sacramento altered their unis and the Lakers debuted their white Sunday/Christmas home jerseys.

 

The first time we saw that Laker uni was on Christmas Day 2002 vs. the Kings a year after those jerseys got overhauled.

They did get to play the Jags in both sets, since they were in the same division for two seasons before changing to the Titans.

But the Oilers did not play the Jags in the blue pants. The Oilers dropped the blue pants when they moved to Memphis and kept the all-white look for '98 in Nashville.

With the picture of the January 1994 Sixers at Nuggets game being played in throwbacks that would mean the road red Sixer's rainbow uniform didn't play against the home 1993-2003 Nuggets uniform in their one year of overlap.
