Royal blue and Kelly green is an amazing, never fail color scheme. It's criminal that its only being currently used by one team in the major four sports, the NHL Canucks.

 

The Seahawks, Timber Wolves, Whalers, and Mavericks, all looked their best while wearing this color scheme.

The Whalers looked their best in navy/silver/kelly, the Seahawks then looked like a poor man's Lions, and both the Mavs and T-Wolves looked pretty bad early on. The Canucks, however, do look great. I don't think the color palette is as foolproof as you make it out to be.

Agreed. Kelly/Royal is hard to get right. The Mavs screwed it up, the Timberwolves looked bland/had to use double outlines, the Whalers never nailed the jerseys, and the Seahawks looked just OK (I like the more modern designs). 
 

The Canucks are the only team that’s really nailed it. The Whalers were close to nailing it initially, but fumbled it with the jerseys.

Ignoring all the weird changes they did, the Whalers 80s uniforms are by far their best and arguably the best in league history.

 

I'll never understand the love for the 90s Whalers uniforms.

Head-to-toe kelly green is hard to pull off. Maybe it's an optical illusion, but the hem stripes always seemed too high, too. Not their best, certainly not the best in league history. Navy is a more conservative base color, the green and silver jumped off it well.

The Whalers should have always started with a royal jersey. And the green should have been a little darker, a la the Canucks. That’s the reason they’ve done so well with those colors. 
 

The Whalers also could have done navy without the silver, and they wouldn’t have cluttered one of the best logo in sports.

On my tv, the pants look even more blueish-green than ever. Almost a light teal-like color that's an extremely major contrast from the clearly silver helmets. Looks so awful.

If the Helmets were more blue like the silver-blue pants in that photo, along with royal helmet accents, this would be a fantastic update for the cowboys, and one that most people wouldn’t even notice, so there wouldn’t be much backlash from the ultra-traditional fans.

I was watching the game and notice the pants looked more blue-silver rather than the seafoam green. I’m wondering if this was a uniform change that went under the radar.

I actually came hear to mention this.  I'm glad it's not just me.

 

They definitely look much more blue than before.

 

Hmmmmm.......

On mine they match the photo that DNAsports posted.

would it have killed the Chargers to wear yellow pants today v Chiefs? Plenty of sunshine peaking through the roof v red clad Chiefs would have been sweet.

Cowboys pants definitely look metallic blue to me today. Hopefully it’s not just lighting. If only the helmets were a touch more blue too.

Ravens best uniforms are easily Black/Purple/White and Black/White/Purple.

 

You would think Black/Purple/Black would work, but it just doesn't. Everything else is a major downgrade.

He’s right though, I would say the b/w/w is better than b/w/p but it isn’t by much
