Unpopular Opinions

Recommended Posts

I think it's safe to say that adding a gradient is an unpopular opinion around here, but I would like to see the Bengals try a helmet with some subtle white countershading like a real tiger has.

Don't know if it's unpopular or not, but I hate the chargers navy uniforms. Way too many teams with navy in the league and I'm a sucker for baby blue. Throw in yellow? Ugh. You got me.

Double whammy; not only are these the best the Chargers have ever looked, their current number font is among the league's best.

 

More yellow, no navy, and I'll agree.

I like the collegiate blue too. To be honest, navy blue also works well like their 1986-1987 uniforms. Plus, I think the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, Chicago Bears, and the San Diego Chargers (in my opinion) should be the only five teams to use navy blue.

 

The Los Angeles Rams, Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans, and the Buffalo Bills (they have some navy blue) should drop or limit navy blue altogether.

Those are the best of the current set but numerals are dated. Bad.

Staying on the NFL, I honestly wished that The browns would wear the orange pants more in their previous set

These uniforms suck. The jerseys are too generic and the striping looks like orange duct tape with tiger stripes. It's an overall outdated set that should stay in the past.

This set was greatly improved when the stripes were tweaked in the '90s.

It even looked nice in monochrome!

I preferred the first Bengals "tiger stripe" set. The leaping tiger logo was great (way better than the B or the tiger head).  But I thought it was overkill to put it on the sleeves when the uniform already had a tiger stripe motif.  

 

I also preferred the original looks thinner, and therefore more, stripes.

 

While  the 1981-2003 (?) look in general is popular, I get a sense that my preference toward the earlier, thinner stripes is unpopular.

The navy blue provides some much needed contrast. Powder blue, yellow and white are all too soft together.

Bolder yellow outlines would give enough contrast, I think. If you need a darker blue, use a medium blue, but I don't think you do.

You listed four teams and said they were the only five who should wear navy. I actually sort of agree with you though.

 

The Texans should also be able to keep their colors, but their blue isn't really navy. They call it "deep steel blue" and, true to the metallic name, it has more grey in it than navy does.

 

I'd love to see the Rams, Titans and Bills drop navy though.

I think these were the best they've ever looked. Just a tad bit of the navy/black but 99% powder/yellow.

True. Yeah, the Houston Texans look good with the color, but some white with the red piping like the Washington Redskins style would make them SWEET!!!

Yeah, if you had that width of yellow outline on the Agency numbers and a yellow facemask, it'd be a perfect update for today.

Red piping? I didn't think the Redskins had any piping at all. Can you show me a pic of what you mean?

I don't mind the bills in navy, but, the way they are using it it shouldn't be there.
