I'm fine with the occassional monochrome as long as contrasting socks are worn but that's rarely the case anymore.

The Chiefs manage to do it both right and wrong:

 

Decent, can live with it for a game or 2 a season

The Bengals did it right in the early years of the current set...

...but now look like crap

For me, the helmet color also has to match the monochrome (like with the Broncos and Chiefs). However, I don't think I've ever seen a team do that (besides the Chiefs that one time). I like the top Bengals one though, but those side panels ruin everything.

I don't follow football much, but most of those pants don't even match the jerseys. Of course that's more to do with fabrics, but you'd think they'd try and match them

You must have better eyes than me. They all look the same to me

The Panthers' new logos and uniform set have grown on me. I now prefer them to the originals, especially the logo.

I don't think that the uniforms changed, (Other than the template cut)  just the logos did. Now I'm not 100% positive, but I don't see any changes in comparing the two...

And while I'm still thinking of the A's - although these are indeed the wrong colors for them - thier first Kansas City uniforms were absolutely beautiful:

Not sure if it's technically "unpopular" or not but I prefer the original Seahawks logo. It has a more authentic, less "corporate sports" feel. logohistory_new.jpg

Absolutely unpopular. 

 

It looks sad rather than agressive. It's uneven, sloppy. Line work is all over the place. 

 

Ugh.

It's based on a traditional Pacific Northwest totem pole motif.

And that's great for a traditional Pacific Northwest totem pole and a team in the 70's, but for a professional football team in 2002/2016, blegh.

I'd argue that a big problem with professional sports in general is that all the logos are looking too similar. Well rendered but homogeneous. Sure it could be refined a bit but I love that it looks authentic and not like every other new logo out there.

To be fair, the redesign kept most elements in place. The eye is the only part that is very "cookie cutter" from those "well rendered but homogeneous" logos.

Yes, I'd say the eye for sure, and the upcurve on the tail (upper left) and italicizing of the whole form are all what I think are "cookie cutter" aspects.

That just adds flow to the logo instead of just having it end sharply. Adds balance and an end in the visual hierarchy of the logo itself.

 

I strongly disagree with you, on a technical and objectively visual standpoint. But hey, this is the whole point of this thread.

I agree that in a vacuum, side by side, the new logo is a much better crafted piece. It seems we may just disagree as to the value of the historical aesthetic of the original logo. And believe me, I've just recently started to have this opinion so it could flip flop back again too.

I agree that the original Seahawks logo looks sad - tortured, even - but I still prefer it to the other two. It has the best color scheme of the three and just looks very totem pole-ish. The designer of the original nailed it.

I've always liked colored uniform pants. I also like all of these, but the current color rush program with jerseys , pants, socks and cleats being the same color is too much.

The Edmonton Oilers should wear their orange alternates full time.  They are that good.

The problem with this is that I'm a huge fan of the regular homes. I honestly don't think that they have a bad choice of jersey.

I really like the pistons  chrome uniforms and I kind of wish they adopt the blue and silver as their colors since it would give them a unique and good looking color scheme
