What Grinds your Gears Logo version


Funky Bunky

Recommended Posts

So, what trends in uniforms and logos, grind you gears or piss you off?

For me, I hate it when alternate jerseys in Hockey are just a different color, but the same jersey as the home/road. It's boring and un-original!

Throwbacks uniforms being used full time.

Using old logos.

Circular hockey logos copied by many teams.

Wordmark logos in hockey.

Plain and bland designs.

Spanish language jerseys.

Baby blue being the cool new color.

"Retro" tan/white also becoming a cool color.

Each sport having breast cancer jerseys, the NFL having a whole month with pink, yet baseball is the only sport that gives mens cancer a day.

NBA-

-Overuse of alternate jerseys and throwbacks.

-Teams wearing their road jerseys at home for no apparent reason/holiday/celebration.

-Teams changing/recoloring jerseys and/or logos too often in general.

-Any matchup where at least one team isn't wearing white or yellow.

MLB-

-I'm really not a big fan of all these exhibition/BP uniforms. I don't like the BP jerseys with the weird side panels and shoulder panels, and I don't like the caps with piping and side "ear" panels.

Teams giving up good logos and uniforms for crap. Whatever that means to you. Whether it's adding black, adding cream to the hockey jerseys, piping everywhere to a jersey, or cutesy number fonts.

I am getting sick of Spanish uniforms. Especially when they think its Spanish just by adding Los. For example El Heat for Los Bulls. At least make an effort. Put Torros on the uniform that is Spanish not Los Bulls.

over simplification of a good logo or jersey (ex. tampa bay, nashville)

Neither.

What is Latin heritage about changing the language? Saying that the Latin people that are in America, since that is where the games are being played, don't speak English?

If the games were in another country that spoke that language maybe, but this is just getting silly.

I'll be waiting for Russian night, Polish night, German night, Japanese night, etc. Or is it assumed those demographics speak English and don't need a heritage night that shows their native language?

Sorry for the rant, but this is just really annoying. And if noche means night it Spanish, why are the Heat continuing to wear these stupid things for several nights?

Sigh, I'm not a big NBA fan anyways, but this pushed me away farther since they started doing it. Especially when my team, the Bulls, does it.

Wordmarks for NHL jerseys... please, this isn't the NBA. Vancouver you're included.

Ugly 3rd jerseys that are just there for the sake of being there. I'm thinking Minnesota, Columbus, Colorado, Florida and Ottawa. If it's not a good jersey idea, don't make it.

Darks being used for home jerseys. Time to swtich back to whites. Seriously.

NHL: Teams replacing their perfectly good primary logo with a boring wordmark. Yeah, new wordmark is associated with a Stanley Cup Championship while the old logo isn't, but that doesn't change the fact that it feels half-arsed and is in dire need of being replaced with something, anything better on the front of the jerseys.

UK Hockey: Where do I even begin: Generic and unimaginative team names, blatantly stolen logos from the North American major professional sports leagues, clipart-ish graphics, gradients and piss poor font choices among other things. Stuff like this really takes away from the legitimacy of the game and adds tackiness instead. By my count, only one team in the whole country got it right, and their logoset was designed by none other than a CCSLC designer whose username I can't remember: the Edinburgh Capitals.

UK American Football: Like with ice hockey here in Britain, many logos tend to be blatantly stolen from North American pro teams. But it gets even better than this with my University's own team: they took the flame shape from Photoshop, flipped it upside down and called it a day.

NFL

I have no problem with the NFL wearing pink but do we have to celebrate a month.

MLB

Overuse of alternate jersey

Making throwback as alt. I think the MLB should use the 4th of July week as Coopertown week so we could see teams in their throwback

NBA

Making throwback as fashion jersey I mean since when does the Cavs ever wore Blue & Yellow in their history.

NHL

Jerseys like the Stars, and Trashers which look more like softball jersey than hockey.

Oregon Ducks football team because they can't make up their mind about which jersey they should wear.

Ohio St. Uniform from last year Big Game. I guess whoever created their uniform was playing NCAA 11 when he had that idea.

I'm all for raising awareness, but is 4 weeks of seeing EVERYTHING pink really necessary?

Shoes, towels, hats, gloves, wristbands, they overdo it.
