Rumor: Buccaneers to Get New Uniforms??

Recommended Posts

If Tampa Bay does get new uniforms, I have a feeling they’ll end up doing what Jacksonville did. Overcompensate and remove all the life out of the uniform. No, I’m not saying the Jaguars had or have good uniforms. They just went too simplistic and Tampa Bay could be in danger of following suit.

Sports Logos News: All the changes and rumored possible changes from news. It even says ''Discussion of sports logo news and rumors'' in the section description.

 

I missed the word "rumors" in that title... so I guess while there wasn't even a rumor about a change, this one makes sense.

The old logo's rugged-ness does kinda fit in with ancient pirate theme, old items from centuries ago sorta. But I feel they may have "cleaned" it up to make it easier to reproduce for merch purposes. I could be wrong, but this is a guess of mine.

 

Given the improvements in technology over the past year, where even embroidery is able to make much more detailed logos, I would tend to discount that as a factor.

I just felt like the skull and the football in the older logo looked off by the time they changed it. 

 

“Looked off”?

 

Please explain.

I’m never going to understand people who think the “new and updated” flag logo is better than the original flag logo. Every single thing about the new logo (minus MAYBE the brighter red) is is a massive downgrade. I mean, you can think the new logo is “better” because it’s a free country, but if you sincerely look at it and say “Hey, that’s an upgrade”, you just have awful taste and we could never get along.

The new logo looks like a sterile version of the old one. Doesn't have any of the character or charm while using way more lines. It's one of the worst updates to a logo I've seen in the last 20 years. I hate it.

I'm hoping for a return to the creamsicles. 

 

I don't disagree that the 1997-2013 set was a great-looking football uniform -- just not for a team in Florida. That color scheme, as appealing as it was, just seems drab for the region its representing.

I agree other logos that have been updated are taking hand drawn logos from a time before digital design and cleaning them up to work today. For the bucs the took a logo that was already made in modern times with intentional roughness to fit the theme, to trying to smooth all of that out and take all character away from the logo. Basically making it look like a weird mix of robo skeleton on a flag, rather than the Jolly Roger it’s suppose to represent.

I like "news" and "rumors of news" as a description.  Since it's 2019, can we add "fake news" too?

The pirate ship Bucs have competitively descended to Creamsicle levels since 2002. That whole “we’re winners now” attitude has long since faded away. Why not just embrace the formerly-maligned color scheme (with a much darker red, but not quite maroon) and either do a new pirate flag logo or a modernized Bucco Bruce? 

 

Look at how artists have transformed the campy Kraven the Hunter into something far less campy.

The same logic applies to Bucco Bruce. He can be salvaged into something for the team, be it a throwback or a full-time design.

Creasicle orange is such a dated color, it's solid as an accent secondary color or full throwback, but not as a complete identity  Also the majority of seats in Raymond James Stadium are red, and while stadium seats shouldn't dictate team colors the red would stand out like a sore thumb.

 

Here's a concept making the rounds from a local podcaster and design guy Samer Ali which takes the red and pewter to a simplified level while leaving a touch of the orange as accent.

I don't know why the red would seem out of place. The Bucco Bruce era used both orange and red in its color scheme. Seems like the stadium is ready made to adapt to a switch.

 

Also, I don't understand the call for a modernized Bucco Bruce. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see a lot wrong with the original.

If anything, I’d have maroon/dark red as the primary with both white and creamsicle pants. Save the creamsicle jersey for alternate status (e.g., a straight throwback). White helmets would be the standard, obviously.

The line work in the original is pretty rough, with inconsistent weights and some poor detailing. Also, some people (myself included) don’t really like the wink, as it makes it too campy. An Errol Flynn lookalike leering at you just looks silly. Making him aggressive, like @Buc‘s brilliant concept, gives him some much-needed menace. It’s one of the few times a “menacing” upgrade works.

Two things:

 

1). That concept is trash. It still uses the same oversized, garbage flag logo that they use now, and the designer genuinely thinks that's a good look. 

 

2). Samer Ali is an absolute dickhead of a human being. :censored: everything he's ever designed. I've never encountered a more arrogant designer than that dude.

That sounds great, actually. I'd be in favor of an update like this. But modernizing it too much strip the logo of its charm.

HELMETS:  Hey Buccos, this is a prime time to bring back the white helmets.  The Titans have entered an "Why are the Oilers wearing copper and navy?" phase of their uniform existence, and your current uniforms will be remembered as the "Eat a W"/Jameis Sucks/Staph Infection era of Tampa Bay Buc uniform history.  You play in a hot-ass state wear everybody wears white at home.  White is IN these days.  Go nuts.  White helmets, lads.  White helmets.

 

COLORS:  White, creamsicle, red, pewter.  There are your colors in order.  You're welcome.  I'm doing this for free.

 

NUMERALS:  The current ones you have should be set afire.  Here's some better ones:  1 2 3  

 

UNIFORM:  See these two uniforms?

Mix them together.  Insert your team colors.  White matte helmet.  Some pirate logo that's of a normal size.

 

Done.  Fixed.

Agree to disagree, honestly I like the large logo on the helmet, and i am indifferent to the new updated flag logo.

 

I've seen you and Samer have Twitter beef, so lets leave that away from here....i just posted the concept to show an option of what "could be" a direction the Bucs go.  No one's right or wrong, we all can and should have our own opinions.

 

You might agree with me or disagree with me on this, but i feel no return to creamsicle orange and no white helmets should be looked at.  Red primary jersey and pewter helmets should be where to start.
