Is this only for current jerseys?  Because I've got one that will never...ever...be replicated.  Hopefully.

I feel like the V design or something like it could be pulled off if executed right. The combination of ugly colors, outlandish design, and a terrible logo make this horrendous to look at.

No.  

 

Honestly, if someone was just walking around wearing the jersey, it would be okay.  But, on the ice, in any colours, I don't think it works.

 

Here was what was said about the switch back then.

 

Here was design partner Bill Boyd’s explanation to famed Vancouver sports columnist Jim Taylor in 1978: “Colours are read by rods and cones in the eyes and the input travels along different sets of nerves. With the Canuck uniforms, we are going from the coolest of colours, blue-green, to the hottest, red-orange. The cool colour is passive, the hot one aggressive. Plus the black. It’s the contrast of colours that creates emotion. White produces no response at all, so we went with yellow, which is warm, pleasant, happy. What we are attempting to create is an atmosphere that will help create the happy, upbeat, aggressive player.”

Penn state. No names. Black shoes. Plain helmets. All of it. No names primarily. 

 

Iconic to PSU, but definitely not unique to them.

 

common slogan found everywhere of ours is:

BLACK SHOES

BASIC BLUES

NO NAMES

ALL GAME.

The Blue Jays are the only team in MLB that puts a team logo on the direct front of the jerseys (most teams usually put this on the left sleeve; in the Blue Jays case, most teams put the player's number where the logo is). They have done this for most of their history; in fact, from 1977-88, owing to their pullover jersey style that was popular then, the logo was located in the dead-center of the jersey, just like a hockey jersey.

I thought the Reds did this as well? 

 

Maybe I am not understanding "direct front" in the way you mean it.

Celtic Glasgow used to have extra large short numbers to avoid using them at the back of the jersey, in order not to interrupt the hoops.

What I meant was a logo with the wordmark. The Reds just put the logo on the left side of the jersey and nothing else.

It's not a uniform, but Boise State and the Smurf Turf. 

 

There are other schools using colored fields, but BSU practically invented it.
