Change 1 thing about your team's uniform

Recommended Posts

Chicago Bears - nothing, they have achieved uniform perfection. As long as they restrain using the orange alt, and have a few road games with the white pants, they're untouchable.

Chicago Cubs - no problems here. Wear the white jersey at home more often, wear the road grey top more instead of the blue alt when away.

"Chicago Bears - nothing, they have achieved uniform perfection. As long as they restrain using the orange alt, and have a few road games with the white pants, they're untouchable."

Fair enough. But let's say you had to pick ONE road combo for the Bears, what would it be? My selection: white pants with the dark socks, as they did pre-80s navy pants.

if only one thing...

BILLS: go back to one shade of blue

SABRES: I'll say use the third jersey logo as the primary logo, rather than the demonic goat head

(since old logo and colors are more than one thing)

Twins: Blue script Twins on home jerseys, like '65

Vikes- Shoulder stripes on the home jerseys, purple pants on the road.

T-Wolves- No changes

Wild- Have a red alternate with the regular logo.

Gopher Football- gold helmet w/ maroon M

If I could change just one thing about my favorite team, I'd have the Chicago Cubs listen to the members of this board:

BJ Sands: "Cubs: Get rid of the walking bear on the alts. Put the logo from the home jerseys there instead."

doctorpeligro: "Cubs: restore old shoulder patch" (left, my avatar)

mts773: "Chicago Cubs--a couple of tweakings I would make here. Take the home whites back to the way they were in 1991 (except the red outline on the numbers)-trade the current blue alternate for the solid blue road jersey used from 1983-1989, and limit the alternates to only on the road. But if I could only make ONE change it would be to get rid of the rid brimmed caps on the road. They never sat well with me."

Discrimihater: "Cubs: bring back Cuba!"

ChicagoShawn 85: "Chicago Cubs - Wear the white jersey at home more often."

OK, so I couldn't settle on one. I like all of these suggestions, even if some of them conflict a bit.

Other sports:

NFL -- Dallas Cowboys -- Go back to the old numbers (similar to a solid Washington Nationals font)

Arena -- Los Angeles Avengers -- Go back to the blue facemask.

NBA -- Chicago Bulls -- Return the Chicago cursive script to the red roads and put the Bulls block back on the less shiny, thinner-shouldered black alts. (Oops, I'm pushing it.)

NHL -- Florida Panthers -- Switch the blue and red jerseys back to how they used to be -- Red as main home with no broken stick.

College football -- Iowa Hawkeyes -- Dump the Steelers look and go back to the ones right before this, circa 1996-1998 with IOWA in block on the front, gold trim around the white and the Tigerhawk on the sleeves.

Atlanta Braves: Put the Native American (aka Chief Nok-A-Homa, Laughing Indian, Cheering Indian, Homer The Brave) on the left arm sleeve like the Milwaukee Braves did and the Atlanta Braves did from 1966-71.

When are you guys going to stop bitching about the Jazz being the "Utah Jazz"?  Larry H. Miller isn't going to sell the team nor the name anytime soon!  The fact is that we've had the name since 1979 and during that time the organization has has some of the best years any sporting franchise could ever wish for.  Why would they want to make a change at this stage in the game?

Because, as Street & Smith's noted back in 1979, the Utah Jazz is the most inappropriate nickname since "Tricky Dick"...

(those of us who remember Watergate will appreciate that one...)

:P

Ha, Nixon. I just heard this saying for the first time today in class.

"Yeah, uh, i think theres some guys lookin fo a fuze box in the office buildin next door. They flashlights keepin me awake!!!"

Penguins: Old gold OR try put the diagonal "PITTSBURGH" on there again. It looked good both times they did it IMO.

Diagonal font:

Since I only get ONE thing:

ORIOLES: All uniforms will feature the "Orioles" script and numbers in orange/black/white, and have front collar/placket piping. The old "bigfoot" bird swinging a bat would be featued on the left sleeve.

Oh, crap, that's two things...but I don't care about hockey or basketball, so I'm actually going for a THIRD thing, and that's the addition (return) of an orange alternate.

Pistons--block numbers

Canadiens--make their throwback that was an inverted version of their reds their permanent road jersey. the white one with the blue and red stripe across the middle.

Braves: Ditch the red jersey altogether. Wear it during BP, if anything else.

Hawks: I guess their jerseys are ok. At least that hawk isn't plastered on the stomach anymore.....

Falcons: I like the jerseys.

Thrashers: I was hoping for a Thrasher-brown color alternate, but I wouldn't change any of the three.

St. Louis Cardinals...I'd be fine if they did nothing. But I wouldn't mind seeing some 40's era piping if they ever did change. A St. Louis away wouldn't be too bad. Or Red Hats on the road. I love what they have but if they changed, I wouldn't be too upset becaus lets be truthful, its really hard to have an UGLY baseball jersey. Even the DQ Twins jerseys weren't all that ugly, they just looked weird on the field.

Chicago Bears...Nothing. No orange alt I guess. Everything else is golden.

Illinois...They could revamp the basketball unis completly. There's no tradition when it comes to Illinois uniforms. I like going towards the orange more however.

Football, the biggest tradition they have with the uniforms is something I don't like. I am not a huge fan of the Orange Pants. It looks so out of date to me. Really if they did anything I think it'd be an improvement.

Twins: New sleeveless jersey to have "TC" logo instead of being a home jersey with the sleeves chopped off.

Wild: Make the green jersey the opposite of the white. The white jersey has green shoulders/sleeves. So does the all green. I'd like to see the green have white shoulders/sleeves inside the red & gold trim stripes where the secondary logos live.

Vikings: Go back one year in jersey style and stay there. I don't especially hate the new Broncos jersey, but I certainly prefer the classic look better.

Timberwolves: New primary logo. I'm tired of the half black face with the pig nose.

Nice thread to bring back from the dead. Anyone's requests happen by now?
