This has been out there since the early days of Anaheim Stadium. I'm pretty sure it's always been red, so it would be weird if the one on the cap weren't.


EDIT: Apparently it was originally white. Did not know that.

 

It was painted green after the stadium remodel and stayed that color during the Edison Field years.

The Atlanta Hawks' uniforms aren't even that bad. Yes, they have some questionably trendy colors going on there, but I think they go together quite nicely. My only complaint is that they didn't go all-out on their triangular pattern.

By the way, that "firebird" logo is cool.

I want to see a Volt Green set. It should glow in the dark, as should all other Volt Green elements of their uniforms.

Here's one: the two best helmets  (rest of uniform notwithstanding) that the Chargers have ever worn are the 1988-2006 one (tops in my book) and the current one. The Fouts-era helmets and the numbered helmets are both overrated.

I'm not really sure what makes a good basketball uniform, but I also like these. But I know enough about basketball to say that interchangeable pants is really amateur and makes it seem like it's a high school practice or something...

Like I said, I've always liked colored uniform pants. Even these.

My reaction before I got to the bottom of the card:

 

"Is that Elway? Did he ever wear colored pants? I don't think he did. Craig Morton, then?" Glad to see I was able to guess this one! Lol

I think a lot of NFL teams would look better with Satin or Matte finished helmets. Redskins, Saints, Chiefs, even the Ravens come to my mind. I think I have this opinion due to the growing trend of the satin/matte finished helmets. I almost don't like regularly finished helmets anymore.

When ever I see matte red helmets they always just look pink to me and bad.

Our high school used a matte finish on their red helmets several years ago and I didn't care for it. I think it looks good on most other colors though.

I think the Cowboys look better with triple-striped sleeves than with double:

I figure it'd be unpopular since triple stripes are more of a 49ers thing, but triple looks better and cleaner to me than the rather clunky double stripes they have now.

 

Also - maybe not as unpopular - but I'd be a very happy man if Dallas brought this whole set back (with the only difference being using the double outlined star instead). This pictured uniform here, I feel, is the best individual uniform Dallas ever had.

I don't care for this logo and am glad it's no longer being used:

Me too. I am going to miss that fantastic Wordmark though!

The Kansas City chiefs have the worst, most bland uniform set in the entire NFL, and their insistence on turtlenecks in the player profile pictures is stupid.

I think it's a shame that it's gone. (But the jersey swap was a good choice.) The only negative this logo has going for it is that yes, it's yet another circular logo but there are enough elements included to keep it from being part of the "lazy roundel club", where Dallas and my Lightning's secondaries reside.

I like the turtlenecks. It distinguishes the Chiefs and their players from the rest of the league.

They've been doing the turtlenecks for years, haven't they? I seem to remember playing Madden 2000 as a kid and even then the Chiefs players wore turtlenecks in their pictures.

 

I always thought it was kind of odd, but it's one of those little quirks you know them for, so I guess it works for them in that regard.

The Flames should put that logo on the shoulders of the primary uniforms in place of the flags. It'd make a bad uniform slightly tolerable.
