I don't necessarily disagree, but would you care to expound?

I have to make a similar request to expound on these.  Especially the Lions.  That's damn near perfect color balance for a football uniform IMO.

Pittsburgh Steeler's Bumble-Bee jerseys. Everyone seems to love those, and praises them as the among the best uni's all time, but personally I think they are horrific to look at

Who's praising the bumble-bee jerseys as the best of all time?

Seriously..  I don't think I've ever heard anything nice said about them.

The original Colorado Avalanche uniform, Dallas Stars' big ☆ uniforms from late 90's early 2000's and the current New England Patriots' Super Bowl dynasty uniforms.

I merged the “Overrated Uniforms” thread with the “Unpopular Opinion” thread because it was basically the same sort of thing.

Not sure if this has been done before, it might’ve been but I don’t recall seeing it ever, but it’s something I feel could have an interesting discussion. Pretty self-explanatory, what uniforms do you think are the most overrated? By that I don’t mean just post any uniform you don’t like, but more along the lines of a uniform people around here (or anywhere, I guess) seem to regard as a top uniform of all time that you feel is no more than average, or something along those lines. 

For me, one I’d call overrated is the classic Patriots.

For starters, that logo is God-awful. Way too much going on in the middle there that just starts to look like a mess at any distance, and on the helmet it’s way too tall to look good. IMO, helmet logos should be wider rather than taller. As for the rest of the uniform, it’s nothing special. Just some basic striping. The biggest issue? It’s primarily red. Anyone see an issue with the Patriots, a team name referencing the Revolutionary War, a team based in America, wearing red? I’ll give you a hint: Paul Revere wasn’t shouting “the blue coats are coming.” IDK, what else to say. I mean, I just don’t get what some people see in them. 

 

So, anyone else have a uniform set thy feel is overrated? 


I hated the Patriots as a kid because I thought Pat was the ugliest, goofiest logo I'd ever seen on a football helmet.  When I hear people talk about what a great logo Pat was, I start to question their taste.

The uniforms aren't bad in a vacuum.  Great color balance on a template that's hard to screw up.  I don't always love striping consistency but it really works here.  Though the fact that they're red really is a problem.  The only way I'd kinda want this look back is if they swapped the red and blue.

I don't like the colors together with the design - blue and yellow can look incredible, but has to be done right. In this case, it's a white uniform, blue pinstripes, blue wordmark, blue collar/belt, blue undershirt, blue stirrups, for some players blue shoes, and then yellow outlines on the numbers and the cap. I know that this is probably something wrong with me, but I hate how underused (and therefore out of place) it looks. Also, I just think pullovers are absolutely terrible and should never come back in any capacity.

I think I get what you mean and I think the fauxbacks are infinitely better for many of the reasons you cited.

It's not a great logo to begin with, but at the very least it worked okay as a non-field logo. Maybe in a locker room, on some letterheads, etc. But it was horrible on the helmets.

Yep - that would be an unpopular opinion.

 

Best Alouettes uniforms:
