Personally I like those TB uni's. They were one of the reason's TB was one of my favorite teams when I was a kid, even when they lost 26 in a row.

"It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the

press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of

speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us

the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the

flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, and

who allows the protester to burn the flag."

If I am permitted to suggest fictional teams (and show my age while doing it), does anyone remember the old movie "North Dallas Forty"? I was pretty young when I saw it but the only reason I remember it is that I seem to recall one of the Dallas opponents wearing some really odd color combination such as red jerseys over brown pants. It was so ugly it was almost cool. Almost. Does anyone else remember or have pictures (I can't find any).

In the one year Sam Wyche coached the Indiana Hoosiers, 1983, he (or someone) decided to take Indiana's colors of crimson and cream literally. Well, not really -- the crimson wasn't as dark as crimson should be (i.e. their current uniforms), but instead of white trim, the second color was indeed cream -- cream-colored jerseys, cream-colored pants, and cream-colored facemasks. I saw an Indiana-Kentucky game on TV and thought there was something wrong with my TV set. Then I saw the uniforms in person at an Indiana-Wisconsin game. It appeared as though someone had left a brand new yellow shirt in when the whites were washed.

My Hall of Shame:

PRO FOOTBALL:

WFL 1974 Southern California Sun, for gaudy uses of fuchsia and orange

AFL 1960 Denver Broncos, for ugly brown and vertical socks

WLAF Orlando Thunder, for gaudy neon green home strip

NFL 2004 Cincinnati Bengals for recent gaudy black pants and orange tops

NFL 1995 Baltimore Ravens for gaudy first-year purple tops and black pants

COLLEGE SPORTS:

BKB 1994 Seton Hall and North Carolina State for testing out lycra tops and bottoms

BKB 1993/94 Apex teams -- Kentucky, St. John'sPenn, NC State, Villanova, Vanderbilt, Tulsa, and George Washington had shorts that had to be seen to be believed.

BB 2001 University of Miami road jersey that looked like someone tried to dye acrylic

BB 1970s Tulane, Louisiana Tech, and Seton Hall -- use of Astros UltraStripe jersey

FB Iowa for putting yellow wings on the front in 1994

FB Oregon's yellow jerseys/pants of 2003/04

HK Maine's baby-blue jerseys of recent vintage

HK Princeton 1994 special 250th anniversary jerseys -- bright orange with a big-afs tiger head on the front with green eyeballs!

LAX Northwestern 2004 -- someone said they looked like alien beekeepers

LAX James Madison 2000 -- tie-dye or should we say tie-DIE.

BASEBALL:

1976 Phillies Saturday Night Special -- retired after one night

1978 White Sox with shorts -- nuf sed

1976 Indians -- all red

1999 Turn Ahead the Clock -- oddly enough the Astros didn't participate

2003 New Jersey Cardinals BP -- just like the TATC jerseys!

1916 New York Giants -- purple plaid!

1997 Anaheim Angels Alternate -- Blue vest with powder blue sleeves. Yick.

2002 River City Rascals (if you don't believe it, check it out yourself)

HOCKEY:

1980 Canucks -- Arco Graphite!

1998 USA -- Ruined a perfectly good logo by putting it in a circle, and illegal use of silver lame!

1994 Anaheim -- Wild Wing! (so ugly it is fetching high eBay prices)

(and there's a really ugly one from the 90s in Russia which is black, gold, red, white, and blue from some steel company!)

2002 Charlotte Checkers -- enough to turn off Nascar fans?

BASKETBALL:

2003 Mavericks Alternate -- "Hefty Bags" retired after one night

1975 Cavaliers -- So ugly they're good

1973 Capitol Bullets -- the original WNBA uniform with wide tank straps

1973 Miami Floridians -- at least the team had cheerleaders to keep your eyes off the game

Mid-90s Houston Rockets -- The snarling Rocket had to go

Mid-90s Cavaliers road -- Black, blue, and burnt orange?

1990 New Jersey Nets -- the Grateful Dead road jerseys

SOCCER:

1996 Entire MLS League except DC United

1978 Colorado Caribous

1985 Liverpool alternate

2004 FC Porto -- looks like blood clots on a white sheet

2002 Shimizu S-Pulse

1994 Team USA -- Wavy Stripes and Denim Stars not a feast for the eyes

2002 Nike World Cup teams -- South Korea in neon pink, Belgium in neon red, Holland in neon orange, Brazil in psychadelic yellow, and Nigeria in neon green

2003-04 Werder Bremen -- green and orange with those skin-tight cycling shirts!

I got others but can't think of them all now ...

And as far as the turn ahead promotion, I think I found the ugliest of them all with that "Mercury Mets" piece. blech!

the crap heap...

NFL: Buccos til 97, mainly cus of Bruce

late 60s/early 70s Oilers...illegal use of silver

Arena: Zubas. enough said

Portland Forest Dragons...god those were crap.

CFL: Rough Riders' attempt at making red their main color.

College: Tennessee 2002 uniform

Brown late 90s...again, illegal use of silver

North Texas current...i root for em when they on TV, but i have no problem saying the uniform is ugly.

Minnesota mid 90s...mmm, M_M

I actually wouldn't mind if Indiana took the cream part of their colors literally, and i'd like to see a pic of those 83 roads.

MLS: current Columbus Crew (the past two were a helluva lot better than the currents, I can tell you.)

late 90s KC Wizards...Flush the Wiz. and the wavy rainbow.

every SJ Clash uniform until they thankfully became the Earthquakes...well, they accomplished a clash. that thing was the definition of ugly

1996 Nike MLS template...see Clash

Nigeria soccer: i loved neon green on the Orlando Thunder. I hated it on Nigeria. moving on.

Germany road jersey: i know, black's in their flag and green's not. I guess I'm just sore cus they pulled off the green/German flag color combo so well.

NBA: Rockets til last year: the logo was fine. the wordmark was good. the numbering was cool. how they were used wasn't.

Magic current: it's not that they're real ugly, I just hate these things.

Warriors current: see Magic, except they ARE ugly

Wizards: see Magic again

Sonics current home & away: see Warriors

Hornets alt: whatchagonnado, though?

NCAA: can't really think of...oh, wait. St. Peter's a couple years ago (I think). ugliest shorts I've ever seen.

Georgetown current: ugly colors ruin a perfectly good design.

Florida alternate: just cus it's black. and makes no sense.

MLB: original D-Rays. enough said.

Astros rainbows

current Astros, come to think of it

White Sox short shorts. nuf sed.

Giants blacks, mainly cus they had black lettering which equated to being illegible

NHL: Canucks red/gold/black gradient alt

Islanders current alt

Flyers current alt

Mooterus

Ducks current alt

Coyotes

about Wildwing...yeah, it was sorta ugly. the blame for that can be laid squarely upon the lettering-I could read the back of one of those black Giants jerseys before I could make out "KARIYA 9" on the back of those. if they'd gone with a legible font, it wouldn't have been so bad.
