Unpopular Opinions


Recommended Posts

The metallic silver helmets that the cowboys, panthers, K-State, etc. use are as ugly as helmets can get.

What makes them ugly? I think you're the first person to ever say that, so I don't know if you're being contrary just for the hell of it...

I wish they would drop the white paneled cap. That, and the white paneled batting helmets they caused, look ridiculous. Even if it has historical significance, that is a dumb looking hat. The all black hat looks great.

These are the best uniforms in the MLB right now. (orioles photo

That's not an unpopular opinion. Those are awesome.

Yeah, I would say "the happy bird logo is terrible and I liked the previous bird" is the unpopular opinion. That is my opinion, so I submit it. Though I do like pretty much everything about the rest of the uniform.

He didn't just say he liked them, though. He said they were the best in the majors, which is pretty unpopular.

I actually really like the white front-paneled cap, which is an unpopular opinion its self.

They just don't look good to me. I doubt I the only person who thinks that.

I'm as big as a Celtics fan as they come, but I would love to see them finally do some sort of modernization to their uniforms,and logo. Maybe work some gold in somewhere, beside the alt that they wear sometimes around St. Patrick's Day.

I dislike "team name" stadiums (ie Nationals Park, Marlins Park). Either give your stadium/arena a proper name, or sell the naming rights for some $$$$.

What do you mean by a proper name?

Real name like Fenway.

Even Wrigley Field is corporately sponsored.

You dislike Yankee Stadium?

NOOOOOOO!

Their current uniforms are fine (home and road). As for a modern logo, they have their shamrock alternate logo. No gold and no black please, even on the St. Patty's day jersey. If the Celtics insist on having an alternate jersey with another color into the mix, the only acceptable route would be to go two-tone green.

The only change to the primaries that would work for the Celtics would be to return the BOSTON script to the roads.

Though I wouldn't mind the seeing green and gold St. Patrick's Day look replace the green and black look as the standard alternate set.

I know what he's trying to say about Nationals Park and Marlins Park, though. They do just sound like mere placeholders. You'd expect such massive and modern structures to have names of their own, not just "(Team Name) Park," especially considering these massive engines of commerce aren't terribly parklike. Yankee Stadium works because we're used to it and because it uses the singular instead of the plural (not that Marlin Park would be much better). "Capital Diamond" is my preference for the Nationals' park, rather than, well, Nationals Park. I don't have one for Miami.

Then there's the strange case of the Rangers, who came out of the Ameriquest fiasco going from the oddly specific yet unspecific "The Ballpark In Arlington" to the more contrived "Rangers Ballpark In Arlington," as if there were other ballparks in Arlington to challenge the Rangers' fallacious employment of the definite article. Couldn't have just gone all the way back, huh.

I'd like them to name it after someone like they used to do sometimes...an owner, or whoever. But I guess that's a bad idea because it looks bad to take the honor away once naming rights are sold.

I do like your "Capital Diamond" idea. Even if it's a placeholder, it does not have to sound like one for the interim. As for Nationals/Marlins Park, I am OK with the "s" on the end. We used to have "Royals Stadium" and I never had a problem with that. I think it's the "Park" part that bugs me. "Marlins Stadium" and "Nationals Stadium" sound better to me. I'd be all for those names if I really thought the intent was to keep 'em.

Two-tone green? Similar to this?

That wouldn't come remotely close to looking as good as either the green/black, or the green/gold alt. I forgot about the shamrock logo though, that one is a good look, and I personally would like to see that, or something similar to that become their become their primary logo.
