Unpopular Opinions

Recommended Posts

I don't post about the NFL here, so I'm not sure if this is unpopular, but I think the Broncos were much better off with navy at home as opposed to orange.

I was seriously coming here to post about this. Maybe it's me being a 90's kid and just being used to Denver wearing navy at home, but I don't like 'em in orange. It's not that it looks bad, it's more that I think the navy just looked better (at least when paired with white pants and not monochrome).

The navy works great as a primary, and the orange works great as an alternate. Should have kept it that way.

Not being too much of a homer, but these have to be one of the best CBB uniforms ever.

Also, I felt Oregon looked really good against Wildcats

Lastly, I felt the White Ops helmet of Maryland needed a tad bit more of color.

I have never understood why some people consider this to be Oregon's best set.

The set after these (Kellen Clemens era) was solid.

These uniforms? They were ok. Not bad, but not good.

Oregon's uniforms are always so close to being good, for me. All of their uniforms for the last decade or so have been a few tweaks away from being good. It's always close, but no cigar.

I loved the Clemens set because it was simply green and yellow. No black, no carbon, no volt, just the school colors showcased in a good modern design. The only modern set, save the most recent Fighting Ducks set, that I felt they got completely right.

Since we're discussing Oregon uniforms in an "unpopular opinions" thread:

I think this is by far their best look ever. As in, this uniform is miles and miles better than any of the "modern" stuff they wear now.

I have a feeling that'll be an unpopular opinion on these boards.

I think the Broncos would have been better off just designing an entirely new uniform if they wanted orange as their primary. This set was designed to have the navy jersey be the primary and I think that shows now that they're wearing orange full-time. I'm all for the Broncos wearing orange at home, just not with the current uniforms.

I agree with you. The more "innovative" they try to get, the worse they look.

If Oregon took that throwback look and used variations of the helmet, jersey and pants all in green, yellow and white, they'd have a great set.

These were my favorite Oregon uniforms ever:

The best Oregon uniforms are either the Kellen Clemens set or this year's "Fighting Ducks" combo. That throwback is bland and lifeless with the yellow pants, and ugly with the white pants.

The one flaw I could see is them being accused of beongtoo similar to the Packers.

This one I know is unpopular: the LeBron-era Cavaliers set wasn't all that good, and their current set is they best they've ever worn.

I liked the LeBron era set, but I like the current set better. The wine and athletic gold looks stunning.

Agreed. I consider the current Cavs uniforms to be one of the more underrated sets in the league.

This is one that's going to get me shot. I hate the colours the Penguins use now, but switching to Sunday Gold isn't gonna make me happy. Yes-siree, I miss the old navy and powder colour scheme as a full time deal. Bringing it back in segments works, but just make it official again. Also, bring back Robo-Pen.

I love the navy and powder blue for the Pens, but I've come to accept that it isn't realistically going to be used full time.

I like those blue Seahawks uniforms. Well, I REALLY like the helmets. The rest of the uniforms are pretty nice, too. Different, but I like them, probably because of the colors.

There's no striping, the numbers are yellow, and Oregon uses a noticeably different shade of green. I don't think I'd worry about that.

But yeah, this is the best Oregon has ever looked IMO.

I love that Oregon look, but I would change the helmet to an Yellow "O" instead of the "UO".

Being in Iowa, these colors make me think of John Deere. Never liked these two particular colors together.

The kid's got a nice farmer's tan, though...
