Wizards backtrack with jersey change

The Washington Wizards began this season with a very neat (yet small) name format on the back of their jerseys.

Examples:

But, as of November 17, they decided to make things easier for the casual viewer (without binoculars) and go a bit more traditional.

Examples:

I personally think the new road jerseys look like crap. Discuss.

ok that's weird. I heard that they were adding the outlines back when preseason is over but I didn't know they were switching the fonts... to a font twice as big. It doesn't look terrible but it would look way better with the font used in preseason with an outline.

The outline isn't necessary, IMO. I would've just kept the font as is and made it only blue on the home jersey and white on the road. Would've looked fine, I think.

But I think jersey design is the least of the Wiz's problems now that Agent Zero is done until February-March.

The plain gold was hard to see without any good/reflective lighting. The away jerseys look much worse now, though, with a bigger font, bolder outline, and names that stretch all the way across the back. Lame, and a downgrade. Who cares if you can read the names without binoculars? That's what those giant numbers are for. (Plus you can tell the players apart anyway when you watch the game.)

I'm probably the only one that thinks that the change to gold was a noticeable downgrade. I really liked the darker and more orange looking bronze color over the more yellow gold color.

I'm on the fence about it. Here's a comparison, showing the differences in the textile/fabric colors:
