I'm gonna be totally honest with you, mostly everyone hates when teams use colors that arent generally in there color scheme. But I actually sometimes like when teams wear BFBS and GFGS uniforms when there done right at least.

Those grey Carolina ones were TERRIBLE.

This one is really out there but... I think the Buccaneers have the best uniforms in their division.

The NFC South is the ugliest division in the NFL when it comes to uniforms (excluding the Saints when they don't wear black pants).

I prefer this logo for the Penguins.

Seconded. I have no idea why they didn't at least keep it as a shoulder patch. Worked well on the Pre-Edge set

Thirded.

Agree with the shoulder patch thing too.

I like it better than the skating penguin, but I don't think it should be a shoulder patch on a skating penguin jersey. Mixing logos from different eras almost always looks weird.
Umm...

They had it as a shoulder patch on the skating penguin jerseys for 7 years and it looked fine.

It doesn't look bad, but I don't like the way the styles of the penguins mismatch. Like putting a square peg in a rectangular hole... it might fit, but it's not quite right.

I don't love the idea because, yeah, one logo is quite modern and the other quite old-school.

However, I will admit that after 90-91 when the North Stars went to the "Stars" logo, I wanted them to keep the "N-Star" around on the shoulders...much like the 1987 Twins kept the "TC" on the home sleeve.

Ugh...I am really glad those jerseys never happened. I admit I go back and forth on Green/Yellow vs. Green/Yellow/BlackAccent North Stars, but I really don't like the idea of that jersey. I just don't feel the mini-Irish rainbow goes well with the back.

And, assuming that is the correct rendering, I cannot stand how the logo has no green (particularly when the numbers have green). But adding the green to the logo would be lipstick on a pig.

I guess I'm a sucker for the rainbow designs. I think done right it could be a good fit, hence why I mentioned it, but I do see what you're pointing out and didn't notice it until you said something. I do hate when one element is not consistent on a jersey.

The North Stars suffered from a ton of inconsistencies. They didn't incorporate matching black trim/stripes and breezers on the road for seven whole years! I know branding wasn't what it is now from 1981 to 1988, but they really should have gotten around to that sooner. The North Stars were a pretty shoddy operation, sadly.

Yeah, I still don't understand why they had black only at home for that long. At the time, it did not phase me because those are my first memories. The best I can come up with is that for the 1981 Stanley Cup run there was no black; so they decided the proposed road jersey was too much of a departure (I think that part is documented) but since the black on the home whites was more subtle, they just let it happen. If so, they should have just pulled back on the home jersey (particularly since the pre-black jersey was so damn nice). This seems a bit far-fetched but is it possible that the league said "It's too late to take these off the table, but since you went to the finals, you can pull back on the black but you are stuck with the home jersey." Doubtful and even so, they should have adjusted one of the jerseys well before 1988.

Or maybe they just "forgot" to pull back on the home jersey since the addition of black was less pronounced. I have yet to come up with a scenario that does not make them seem Mickey Mouse.

Oh well, now the Twins are going to pick up the tradition.

I actually LIKE the Braves' current road alternate look...it's a nice, clean identity, with a bit of a "neon" look with the font.

For those complaining about little to no red, I take it you never saw their '80's brand.
