Unpopular Opinions

Recommended Posts

Apparently unpopular opinion of mine...

"Stick in rink" is a terrible logo that absolutely screams 1970s.

My unpopular opinion is that there is nothing wrong with screaming 1970s

I don't know how unpopular this is, but I don't like it when baseball teams (and CFL now) have different hats (helmets) for home and away. I feel it dilutes the brand and in some cases takes away from the better look.

There's no reason these shouldn't be worn all the time.

I'm fine with having an alternate look, but keep the home and away the same.

Home/road caps work sometimes in baseball, provided the team matches the batting helmets to the caps in all games. However, most of the times the second cap is a reach, and looks much worse than other. The A's road caps (current and former) both are much worse than the home, the Mariners' solid navy cap (former road) is worse than the former-home teal billed cap. The Braves' home cap is much, much better than their awful road cap. The Reds' home cap is much better than their crappy road caps. Teams like the Nationals Twins and Astros would look better only using their home cap, while the Orioles would be better served only using the road one. Road caps can sometimes work, but it's rare.

Football is different. With as prominent as football helmets are and with the helmet serving as de facto logos, football teams should never have alternate helmets (outside of possibly wearing throwbacks once per year).

Thank you.

I love the Irish Rainbow uniforms but this logo is very minor league.

I like vegas Gold for the Penguins because it separates their look more from the bruins, but only when its a metallic shiny color, not the dull matte beige color they currently have and the current Edge template sucks.

The NFL should have alt helmets. It would let teams try out different looks without doing the full-blown rebrand. Maybe if the Jags could have brought their helmet out as an alt one year, we might have only had to deal with it for two games instead of five years. Alts let teams get some of their crazy ideas out without long-term damage.

Yeah god forbid that they can use more than one helmet per season. Sadly, since they can't even wear throwback helmets anymore, this will never happen.

Here's mine: I absolutely despise the Sonics' color scheme mixed in with their identity. The colors work with the Packers for historical reasons, they look okay with the A's, but that color scheme is so outdated for some reason for the Sonics. When looking at pictures of Durant there in 2007 I feel like I'm watching a game from the 70's.

I hope if they return to the NBA that their brand gets a major overhaul.

Now THAT is definitely an unpopular opinion.

The Avs' logo sucks and it's too clunky. The mis-aligned A and the death roundel annoy me to this day.

When I was younger I always thought it was an abstract whale head rather than a stick in rink.

The Boston Bruins yellow alternate uniforms of 1995-2006 would have been received a lot better had they simply had a Spoked B instead of the Pooh Bear logo.

Doesn't seem to be that unpopular of an idea, I thought that all along

^^^ I actually really liked the bear head thirds as they were. Maybe they're not for an O6 team, but in a vacuum I still like them.

No clue if this in unpopular or not, but I think the Houston Oilers looked much better than both the Titans and the Texans.
