Ravens -- 1996. The whole look is a little too dark and the huge numbers and extra wide white stripe on the pants looked awful.

Now that I look at it, 1996 was a pretty bleak year for Baltimore home uniforms.

 

This is one of my favorite uniforms...Black/purple/black just looked really cool to me, but the white stripe did look bad. I actually wouldn't mind if the Ravens went back to flat numbers...the shadow seems dated. I also like that bird sleeve logo better than the shield lol

 

The weird part of the 1996 Ravens uniforms were the roads, where the numbers had no gold on them, just purple w/ white and black outlines.

My picks: 

 

Patriots: I wasn't alive for these, and I'm sure there will be some fans of this... but this is pretty bad in comparison to other Pat Patriot uniforms. Too plain, tiny stripes that don't really match the helmet stripes ...ugh...

Avalanche: The aprons...yuck

People look back on this uniform through this lens of how wacky and nostalgic it is. The Canucks have worn some bad uniforms but if you take a step back and genuinely look at this I find it extremely hard to argue that anything was uglier.

I will admit that the overall look has grown on me a little.  That may be because I've become more accustomed to dark-over-dark uniforms since then as more teams have worn them (including the Ravens).  However, at the time, that look was pretty uncommon.  The closest I can think of to the Ravens uniforms from that era is Northwestern, which reversed the pattern (purple helmet, black jersey, purple pants).

That said, even accounting for the general style being a little less offputting, it's still a look with some issues (e.g., the huge numbers and extra wide pants stripe, as mentioned above). I like the sleeve logo and the white striped socks, but they aren't enough to save it.

Coincidentally, I just realized the striped socks were essentially the helmet/jersey/pants combo...black/purple/black and black/white/black.

You just realized that?

 

Actually, I never really thought of it that way.  I just always thought of it as the center stripe matching the jersey.  The net effect is the same.

The current alternate powder blues. I like the actual historic pullover powder blues (even though I barely lived in that era), but these are... bad, in my opinion. And not only were they already ugly, the team also consistently loses whenever wearing them, and some players have expressed that they dislike these as well for that reason.

Pacers:

The "Earned" jerseys from this last season have absolutely zero redeeming qualities. Both the white and grey versions are bad, but the grey is even more miserable. I've loved every Pacers jersey, from the Flo Jos to the pinstripes to the current jerseys which are my favorite. But these eyesores need to be relegated to a one-year mistake.

Colts: No problems whatsoever. Colts are perfect from head to toe, and fortunately haven't made the mistake of doing anything too cute with them. I hope they never change.

 

Blues: I take no issue with any era of the Blues' look.

The 08-11 thirds. Absolutely what a mess. Also, the socks' striping looks weird and the side panels and the striping on the upper arms are bit too much.

Yes, they look like football jerseys. I glad they retired the thirds before they move.

Currently Jets:

The roads. Never a fan of the striping across the upper blue yoke. I prefer their Heritage jerseys over their regular roads. Make the roads inspired to Heritage jerseys.

Red Sox:

The current red alternates. They never should remove the piping and it looked like a college uniform. But I actually liked them in red. Yes,the former alternates are much better than we have now.

Yeah, this jersey is a beauty.

 

Seahawks:

The color rush. UGH. 🤢 this is so disgusting. the neon green actually really looks vomit green at they'e wearing. 

 

Nippon-Ham Fighters:

The golden jersey with blue striping on left side is even hideous. But I liked the hat.

The Thrashers identity was just terrible in general.

Unpopular opinion:  I thought they were pretty close to something great...  Until the RBK Edge implementation mucked everything up.

You're 100% right on half of their jerseys. The asymmetrical home jersey was great. Their pre-Edge misstep was not adopting a matching road version.

 

The Edge change-over made it worse, though. Both jerseys got substantially worse.

It just felt like too much to me. Too many colours, too many lines,too many extraneous details, too much everything. Their jerseys felt like a kindergarten classroom distilled into a sports uniform.

I hope you're talking about the Celtics, because that Jazz uniform is gorgeous.  It, along with the Nets' uniform...

...demonstrates why the sleeved jerseys were a good thing.

This is the best the Magic have ever looked, the only time they weren't saddled with some goofy font for the lettering and/or the numbers.  

(It always cracks me up when people contend the Magic or the Tampa Bay Lightning must have goofy uniforms and that they should not have dignified ones.)

I really think that the white helmet and red jerseys should have been the way to go; not only is it a better look, it also better differentiates them from the other in-state team, the Cowboys.

New Orleans Saints - this one-off back in the Aaron Brooks/Jim Haslett days was the absolute worst:

But I pretty much dislike any of their combos that include black pants:

New Orleans Pelicans - The Mardi Gras "NOLA" sleeved jerseys were hideous:

LSU Tigers - Most of the one-offs (except throwbacks), including last year's with the purple "color-changing" helmet:

Wearing white helmets and pants against South Carolina in 2015:

Probably worst of all, the purple pants game against Kentucky in 1995:
