Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

And yet both of these descriptions are exactly why I consider

 


...to be such a boring look: the Leafs had design elements that were part of their signature look...

...but then they replaced them with a generic, cut-paste "create-a-team" template.

The Leafs would look so much better if you put the new logo on these uniforms.

How are those bland?

 

The colour scheme is drab. Too many dark colours plus a logo representing the ownership at the time instead of the team name/sport element.

Would these qualify as bland?  They're certainly empty looking but the piping and half-stripes just might push them from bland territory to retina searingly awful.

These are just bland. To me “retina searingly ugly” is something garish and eye catching in the wrong way, like the wild wing or Flying V jerseys. These are just boring with a really stupid pattern.

The Lightning have been bland personified in the Yzerman era.

Taking "Bland" to mean 'devoid of strong or unique characteristics and therefore uninteresting'...

I'd say the most recent Phoenix Suns uniforms qualify, despite their unique color scheme. They just feel lifeless compared to the rest of their history.

considering what their uniforms were before Nike took over, I'd agree with you for these being bland. It's such a generic NBA-Create-A-Team look.

Besides the shade of green there is nothing interesting about these at all. If they were red or blue or black they wouldn't get nearly the amount of love they do now. And the logo looks straight out of Create-A-Team.

I'd argue ugly.

 

This is bland.

If these were red, had an extra black and white stripe on the hem, and the chain-stitched profile of a great chief on the front, they’d get much, much more love!

More so than any one team, I dislike the trend of downplaying secondary colors in baseball on road jerseys to the point that they're practically invisible on TV. Some examples:

These are teams with good home and/or alt jerseys (yeah, I like the Rays' look) but the life is sucked right out of them on the road.

Seems this quickly turned into the "post uniforms I don't particularly care for" thread, sans the first page.

Forgot all about these (probably because they're so bland)...GREAT pick.

That look is amazing in comparison to what they were using before:

Those were bad but these sets did give us the blue alternatives which were far superior. They should've made a home and away uniform based on this.
