Unpopular Opinions

Recommended Posts

I’ll be this guy:

Seeing Pitt’s new uniforms, I prefer them in navy blue and metallic gold. It’s what I’ve grown up with and it looks better to me. The royal blue and athletic gold isn’t bad, but I’d rather it be a one game alt than full time

I like the Chargers current uniform set better than the ones prior to up til 2006. The navy jersey is underrated, and so is the white one.

 

Yeah.... unpopular opinion.

The Vikings striping on their white pants is perfect

It should also be the striping pattern on their white jersey sleeves...

I don't necessarily disagree, but I don't really have any issues with the jersey as-is either.. the curvy, Viking-horn-esque design of the sleeve stripes differs from the straight, traditional pants stripes enough that I'm ok with them being a little different in more ways than just the shape

I think it should still mimic the horn swoosh on the back of the sleeves, but it would keep the white from bleeding into the white, like it does on the current road jerseys.

Yeah...the yellow stripe really gets lost on the sleeve.  Mimicking the color pattern on the pants would be better.

I could see a good argument either way. I remember some grumbling when they first switched (1997?) but looking back it was a pretty strong identity they adopted. If anything I'd maybe split the difference and do royal blue and metallic gold, with the helmet having the panther at home and the script on the road.

I have no problem with the Phillies wearing powder blue throwbacks at home. Wearing them as a road alternate would be ideal, but home use is A-OK.

 

In fact, it’s an excellent way to hammer home how maroon/powder should be and should always have been a package deal.

Anything that keeps a team from wearing traditional red and blue is okay with me

Actually, I think this site's April Fools joke from a while back would make the perfect blending of Phillies eras:

Of course I would love to see all of these in action for one day.

The face and a lot of the helmet are better in the new, but I think the concept is stronger in the old. A mashup (I think someone posted a pretty good one recently) would be best.

I almost dropped this in the Cleveland Indians discussion, but then thought it might go better here.

 

I also don't know if this is unpopular or not, but...

 

In 99.99% of the time, radial arched letters are superior to vertical arched letters.

Everybody and their brother seems to love these kinds of alternates ... but not me.

 

For the Warriors ... first off, they're a STATE team, GOLDEN State. Not a City.   It would be like calling the Rangers "The Dallas Rangers."

 

Plus, they're moving from Oakland to San Francisco next year, which to me (admittedly from a distance) raised all kinds of "bad neighborhood" stereotypes.

 

 

The Nuggets alternate ... ecchh.  Crayola blue.

 

 

 

 

Especially bad when they have (imo) two of the all-time awesome alternates:

But ...   Again   .... the Warriors are NOT a City or a Town. They are a . State!
