Unpopular Opinions

Recommended Posts

The Rink in a Stick logo completely fails because it doesn't look like a C. It's as simple as that.

The inner white part is clearly a C. The blue part is an ugly C, but it's still a C.

It is a C in the deformed possible sense. Honestly I've never looked at the white part, but it looking like a rectangular c doesn't justify the logo's existence.
Ok, what justifies a logo's existence?
Being good.

So we can agree the stick in rink's existence is justified then.

Nope. That stick in rink logo is AWFUL.

Not sure if its an unpopular opinion, but I love caps with front panel colors.

(^I bought one of these caps at a Brewers game, and I wear it quite often.)

I recently found a cap like that @ a Value Village in Everett; but I passed on it because it was too small for me (7 1/8).

We're talking about the so-called-stick-in-rink and the ball-in-glove?

Both are awful. AWFUL.

I do and don't like it. I like the sublimated checkered flags, but ideally, the electric blue and yellow is left to the Warriors while the Pacers go with midnight blue. As for the Nuggets, ah, I dunno.

FWIW, if I ever get around to finishing my NBA series, I plan on bringing back the 1997-2010 color scheme, but with an emphasis on that beautiful "Golden Gate Orange" color they used.

RE: modernizing the FloJo's - I made this concept a few months ago:

(12/30) INDIANA PACERS

Updated FloJo's with the St. Louis Blues' color scheme.

The only problem with this design is when you tuck the jersey into the shorts, the side panels won't line up. Probably one of the reasons the FloJos didn't try it.

The white jersey is like a NBA version of the St. Louis Blues.

I think the uniforms the New England Patriots wore from 1995-1999 (Bledsoe era) was the best look in history of the franchise.

No, don't do that. Vivid shades of blue and yellow look so good together.

I understand what you're saying, but you're forgetting that you're wrong.

I guess that's an unpopular opinion, but I think my favourite NBA identities of all time are these three:

I thought that Sonics' set was great, especially for that time. I understand why they ditched it though, and the set that followed it was really, really good. I'd love to see what a set like those 90's uniforms would look like if the deep red was replaced with that nice shade of blue the Seahawks used during the 2000's.

The blue pants weren't a completely terrible idea. Would've been okay with some white socks with stripes that matched the sleeve stripes. The gray socks ruin it.

I know this will make people on here think I am an absolute jerk, but I do not have any problem with knock-off merchandise. I agree with those that say most of them look terrible, but I can fully understand why people do not want to pay the ridiculous prices the official manufacturers are charging.

I'm with you 100 percent. I have no idea why there's such a stink about it on here.

I HATE colored pants for ANY NFL team.

The away team should be in all white or very light grey/silver.

This:

is much nicer than this:

I prefer the helmet matches the pants on the road and the jersey at home in most cases.

The exceptions being if a teams helmet is white/silver then at home I want it to match the pants and on the road if the helmet is white want the pants to match the numbers.

I do like all white though too. in some case.

I much prefer an all white monochrome or a white silver to an all colour monochrome by far.

Off-white MLB jerseys are the best

They're ok, except when they look like urine-stained sheets. Or when the cap logo is predominantly bright white.

I love the Mavericks' home uni

Yet, the away and alt(s) are ehhh for me

+1. Its a solid look with a championship behind it. No need for a change.
