There's probably a few NFL helmets that are better than the Colts, but those three aren't them.

The Spurs' outlineless font on their jerseys doesn't match up with the double-outlined numbers anymore. Also, the numbers on the front of the jerseys are too small compared to what they used to be.

Hate the V-Neck (not just with the Spurs, btw). Make this rounded-neck

Guys, guys, guys...

 

Why not just agree that some helmets look good with a gray facemask, while others look better with a colored mask? It doesn’t have to be all-or-nothing

No picture, but I feel that you need to have two of the same sleeve/shoulder patches or none. 

One of one logo (i.e. primary) and one of another (i.e. alternate), in addition to a logo on one sleeve/shoulder and a blank sleeve/shoulder on the other.

Are you talking about this?

Or how the Tigers have different logos for hats and jerseys?

I think for baseball the size of the caps and jerseys dictate the use of different sizes from the jerseys which have more space for a standard logo. For the Giants, the fact that away jersey has not a stitch of blue and the home jersey has no red makes the set look incomplete.

I actually like the v-necks, but Nike needs to bring the collars up because they look droopy. They were even worse when the college teams were wearing them.

The Tigers “fixed” that last year.  As we can tell from your photo. 😛

But didn't they undo the "fix" this year?

Ooh...forgot one I absolutely hate.  The Buccaneers using a different patch on each sleeve.

Grey facemasks are always the superior option, regardless of team.

I like grey facemasks a lot of the time but there are instances where color just looks better. The Dolphins should never have had a grey facemask in any instance - in fact I wish they still had aqua facemasks like before. The pre-1997 Buccaneers looked just fine with orange facemasks. The Chiefs' white facemasks look amazing, as do the Bengals' black masks, as did the old Browns' white masks - and I wouldn't want a grey one on a really modern uniform like those worn by the Jets, Broncos, Falcons, Eagles or Seahawks. 

 

Most other teams would be fine going with grey facemasks, but I can't think of any team without a silver or grey helmet that absolutely NEEDS one.

Broad pet peeve. Colors that don't exactly match up on ones uniform. It could be a helmets color with the 'same' colored numbers. Or even shoes that should be red but are more cherry red that varsity red.

This is a good one. SImilar example, it bugs me when some teams use differing shades of the same color seemingly by accident. For example, the Red Sox are supposed to have only one shade of navy blue but here it looks like two shades...

And bring back the waistband stripes as well to match the jersey sleeve and neck piping.

the words "blue jays" in Toronto's wordmark have the team's signature inline, but the word "Toronto" does not.

Huh? Please explain, I'm not seeing what you're saying.

 

Anyways, baseball wordmarks that are "too slanted." The Brewers and Nationals come to mind first. Both wordmarks look like they are falling down to the left.

Also... @Gothamite once pointed out a weird issue with the Mets wordmark that I still occasionally wake up in a cold sweat over even to this day. It's downright haunting when you realize it.

Baseball teams that for whatever reason have to have their cap logo as a sleeve patch.  The most egregious ones are the Dodgers and the White Sox road.  The addition of and change to those lessened the look for me.  Also included are the Padres, Giants, Angels, etc.  

 

I'll also add teams that have their city name on the home uniform (Rangers and Marlins.) I would prefer to see "Rangers" and "Marlins" instead of "Texas" and "Miami" when those teams are home.  Looks minor league to me.
