Small details that bother you

helmet stripes extending down to the facemask like thisslideshow_1002255601_football-uga.JPG

and this12373567-essay.jpg

You know what?

I kind of like that. Not sure I'd use it if was designing the helmet--but in some cases that would work.

Just found this out. Look at the red line and the letters.

Is that just because th it is an T and r?

While we're at it, I've always hated how the "notch" in the "U" is rectangular. It looks awful with the rounded bottom. I know it's on some of the other letters, too, but it's most noticeable there.

The NFL captain patch. I'm OK with the idea, OK with the standardized one for every team, and OK with the stars idea... but why does it have to stop after 5 years? If you're going to introduce the idea that it's important to show how long someone has been a captain, why stop at five? If someone have been a captain for 12 years, I want to see it.

Teams with mixed serif and sans serif numbers (especially 1, 4, and 7).

NHL examples:

Oilers / Canadiens / Rangers - 1 and 4 have serifs, but 7 does not

Bruins - 1 and 7 have serifs, but 4 doesn't

Lightning - 4 and 7 don't have serifs, but 1 does

Frankly, I'm shocked nobody on this board noticed that before.

Because there is nothing wrong with it

The Chiefs new era caps. The arrowhead has a white outline around the black outline. Just make it the same as the helmets.

It's a T and an R; completely different shaped glyphs. Nothing wrong with how they are positioned.

Yeah but that logo is completely void of any ideas. Terrible, obviously.

I really don't like how Nashville's primary logo has a rounded stroke. It contrasts too much with the inner stroke. Also the bottom teeth have rounded inner strokes while the front teeth are sharp.

Adidas made Kansas' football number font thinner when they switched to TechFits and it looks really weak and cheap.

Actually looks somewhat better but both are weak and cheap! Mid 90's I used to watch their game replays as a kiddo during the week and those helmets and uniforms were pretty decrnt

I'm pretty sure that's the nature of outer stroke edges on acute angled corners. If they weren't rounded they would have to be ridiculously long to meet up. Also when it comes to stitching them on a jersey, those tight angles wouldn't be practical as they would eventually get worn down due to them getting snagged constantly. A rounded edge limits this.

Stupidly small NOBs. Really...why bother?

Remembered this whole thing while watching the OU-Tulsa game last week. Can't for the life of me find a current pic of a Tulsa player (white helmets, not gold) showing the NOB but the letters are the same size as those on the front.
