Variations and inconsistencies in team branding

Not even just the logo, the "midnight green" color. Going to games, it's not just a bunch of green jerseys and merch in the crowd. It's a mix of green, dark green, teal, blue-ish, and all of the in between. I really wish the birds would go back to kelly green but I'm starting to lose hope :(

I blame that more on the amount of people wearing knockoff jerseys rather than an inconsistency in branding. The amount of forest green jerseys with bright silver number outlines that I saw at the last game I went to was just painful, not to mention the bogus number/name fonts. I know there's a separate thread for counterfeit jerseys but I often wonder whether the people wearing these are really that oblivious to how their team is supposed to look or if they just don't give a :censored:.

As a born and raised Chargers' fan their inconsistent use of the lightning bolt has always bugged me.

 

Bolt on white bg on helmet looks great, why then not use it the same way on the pants?

Because the new uniforms are an overdesigned mess. 

 

The throwbacks had a consistent bolt treatment, and looked so much better:

This 1962 NL Official Program features the Met cap with an orange top.

Except they didn't have an orange button top on the cap until the late 90's. 

 

...

Not many people will notice but I did so that's something. 

 

Inconsistencies aside, that is some mighty fine looking cover art.

Kentucky has used a combination of their old "UK" logo and the new "UH" logo this year.  I assume next year they'll go with the UH full time, along with the horrible paper clip remover, or two birds embraced, or whatever it's supposed to be.

Moot point because they're changing to black and gold next season anyways, but the OHL's Hamilton Bulldogs.

The colours of the jersey invert for the blue alternate, but the H stays blue

I'd say this is a case of the branding being too consistent, to the detriment of the uniform.

 

If they're changing uniforms anyway, I'm wondering why they'd bother with the shoulder patch to begin with :P
