Unpopular Opinions

Recommended Posts

Agree to disagree, guys. I like simple design more than anything else. An even more unpopular opinion, I like black/black/silver look of the 90s for the Falcons.

Okay, this is probably a highly unpopular opinion, but whatever. This?

Sure. To me, one of the absolute hallmarks of design (and one that's being blown out of the water in the current climate of sports design) is economy. Along with symmetry, variety, harmony, etc., economy is one of the basic principles of organization. I tell me students all the time, if you can tell the story with 5 lines, sometimes that's all you need. (But usually, they just keep drawing anyway.)

Just like writing, cooking... hell, anything, there's a point when you've nailed it, and anything added is just superfluous filler, cluttering up the perfect statement. Of course, its personal preference... I say "simple and complete", you say "plain and lacking" but by my standards of design (no, not just "nostalgia".... the 60's Falcons don't mean anything to me) this is perfect.

Thank you. It's nice to hear reasons behind design preferences other than "I like/don't like that," it provides an opportunity for my own thoughts about design to evolve. I'm a big color person, and I tend to place a higher value on color balance (how well the key parts are highlighted, cohesiveness, team identity, etc) when judging the overall success of a design. Strangely enough, that's another thing that's being lost in this age of random one-offs and mismatched fabrics. For my design preferences, I feel that the Raiders and Packers pull off the "simple" look much better than this does.

But I don't see the Green Bay Packers' uniforms here.

I LOVE the Steelers number font. It's a good way to not have a boring old block font but not have a crazy futuristic font like the Bucs or Vikings.

I don't see how the Vikings font is crazy and/or futuristic at all...

This throwback doesn't get near the love that it deserves.

I agree with this.
I think those look good in a vacuum, but I generally dislike throwbacks that look nothing like the current set. I think at least some of the hate those get is because people don't think the Jets should look like that.

Edit: The Eagles' blue and yellow jerseys are another example. I normally like bright colors like that, but it doesn't look like the Eagles to me.

Same here. Those are great looking uniforms, but I don't like throwbacks with a totally different color scheme. It just looks weird seeing the team in blue and gold when everything else (field, TV graphics, most fans) are in green. It's fine for a one-time uniform for an anniversary or something, but I think the Jets wore those for a few years.

I really like that shade of gold, though. I wish the Saints wore something closer to that.

I think the Tennessee Titans' helmet logo would like better without the flames. Honestly I've always been a little confused as to why they decided to include flames on the logo. Seems unnecessary.

This sweater was nowhere near as bad as people claimed it was at the time:

I can't deal with the gold stripes on the helmets. They just don't belong. Otherwise, these are great.

Getting rid of the side panels and adding a hem stripe would go a long way towards improving that Thrashers jersey.

The gloves always stood out when they wore that alternate. Very little navy on that jersey and none of the lighter blue. An interesting jersey to be sure though.

That Thrashers jersey would have looked good if they'd changed literally everything about it.
