I have a soft spot for these weird football uniforms with the upside-down unbalanced look;

To me, it only works if the pants are a light color... gray, silver, gold... when the Titans wore light blue jerseys and dark blue pants, it looked like trash.

 

It also only works because it's unique... if it became prevalent, I'd hate it.

How are these upside-down or unbalanced, exactly?

 

Also: touchdown, Wyoming Redskins!

Because the helmet is lighter than everything else. I personally feel it just looks off when the lightest element is the helmet and the jersey isn’t also the same color. Don’t like it on Wyoming, don’t like it on San Diego, didn’t like it when the Titans used to do it.

Jets, Patriots, Dolphins, Cowboys, Colts, Cardinals, Packers, Lions?

I should’ve worded my post better. I don’t like it when all three parts of the uniform (helmet, jersey, pants) are different colors and the helmet is the lightest. As far as I know, none of the teams you listed have done this, unless Miami mixed their old orange alts with aqua pants. Hopefully i worded this better than last time

Oh, gotcha. 

 

My pet peeve is when a football jersey is anything other than white but still lighter than the pants. The classic example would be the Titans' old Columbia-over-navy, which you dislike for different reasons. For some reason the last Jaguars set managed to do okay with that though - I loved their teal-over-black look, and it would have been fantastic combined with their new helmet. But that's the exception to the rule. (Also purple-over-black is an exception, generally.)

We need a dislike feature just for posts like this.

 

I'm telling you, it's overrated. If it came out today it would be heavily critiqued. I like the fin, but the way the W is formed looks completely clunky and it's not even a nice H in the negative space. Not to mention the grey outline version which is just wrong. It should be two elements sitting on an empty background. And blue and green sitting next to each other doesn't work that well either. It's a good concept for a logo, just executed poorly, in a very outdated fashion.

The Hartford Whalers logo is overrated.

Agreed. This is the best logo they've ever had, and possibly the greatest logo of all time, any sport.

I'm not joking about the second part. This logo is so dumb that it is  amazing, and genuinely one of my favourites of all time.

It's so dumbly amazing that it says not "Whalers" but "Whaleers"...

It looks like our friend is happy to be finally passing an intestinal blockage shaped like "ers".

 This proposed logo for the Hampton Roads Rhinos is bad, but in all the right, 90-ist way possible:

You got the "rough" looking trinagle & trim around the Rhinos font, with a puck for the O cause it's kewl, the Rhinos is snarling cause he has attitude & it's also why he's missing a tooth.

90% of NBA logos are boring, crappy, and uninspired. Take any of the following logos, replace the names with any other team name, and it'd still work.

The Rockets, Magic, Suns, and Kings (from those you posted) all have logos relating to their names. The Trail Blazers have a unique logo in all of sports. The others I'll give you, although I think they still look good aside from LAC and OKC...and the Pacers would be better without the roundel, but it works well with their current uniforms.

Here's one: the New York Jets have had plenty of decent-to-good uniforms, but have never truly had an elite, unforgettable look in my opinion. Their SB III set is their most iconic for obvious reasons, but none of it has anything to do with a name that should have some very interesting design possibilities. In general they've been too plain.
