Cincinnati Jungle Kats

I just got home from the af2 game between the Green Bay Blizzard and the Cincinnati Jungle Kats. This is Cincinnati's first year in existence, and they had started the year off with plain white helmets with a black facemask.

Well, they've added a design to the helmet, and I believe they're the first team to ever incorporate a design element into the front bumper. I can see how this may get picked at by designers (and I'm curious for opinions on it), but in person, it was WOW!

Not as bad as I would have thought - though it would be 100 times better if they took off the face and just left those bengal stripes.

Still, I give it a 2 out of 10......

I like - though the black/white colour scheme is more reminiscent of a Siberian tiger, than a "jungle kat", but never mind!

One improvement (maybe) would be to add a open mouth around the face of the helmet (a la Gladiator) - akin to a hockey goalie mask...

Or not...

Tougher to tell on the third one, but the Firebird wrapped over the top of the helmet.

Off of the top of my head I can think of two teams that have had designs on the front of the helmet - Wisconsin in the 60s, they wore the throwbacks two years ago with the W on the front and Miami University had an indian guy with a tomahawk on the front of their helmets as well.

Asinine name? Check!

Bland color scheme? Check!

Primary logo that appears to have been stolen from EASports' Madden NFL "Create-A-Team" feature? Check!

Absolutely hideous helmet and uniform design? Check and check!

Given that the Jungle Kats boast an on-field record of 1-and-6, I do find it apropos that the tiger face on their helmets features eyes rolling back in it's head.

I don't think you could come up with a WORSE uniform, even if you tried.

Gimmicky helmet, boring color scheme, cheap shoulder striping, ridiculous number font.

And the ol' Iowa Barnstormers utilized the front of the helmet with their logo (wraparound flight goggles), and that was 100x better looking.
