Tampa Bay Buccaneers Getting New Logo, Helmet & Uniforms

Recommended Posts

Watched the Bucs in red jerseys against the Redskins and was surprised that I did not hate it as much when seeing it in action.

The only elements I hated were the numbers and those random paint streaks on the helmet. The uptick in orange looks great, the helmets are nice other than the streaks and overall, they look decent. They have a solid color scheme and that helps hide a lot.

They also looked far better with white pants than pewter.

They're not great by any means and are a downgrade, but I don't puke when I see them in action like I thought I would.

Those numbers though...

The white pants make the overall look so much worse.

I thought I wouldn't like the white pants but I've got to disagree here. The pewter pants in this set makes for a pewter overload when you include the helmet and shoulder yoke. It's just too much. I'd say the white pants look better and help tie in the numbers. Just my opinion of course.

Jersey would be 100x better if the yoke was red and not pewter/dark gray.

The above pictured set is vomit-inducing, but it's still far better than the set with pewter pants (not to mention pewter socks). The reason is that there's no "pewter" in the pants, or the shoulders for that matter. As a matte version, it's just kinda-brownish gray, which is not only hideous, it's not their color.

I will say that the brighter shade of orange looks great and the new pirate ship sleeve logo is a major improvement on the old one, which just looked like a shapeless black blob.

And, um, yeah. Those are pretty much the only good things I have to say about the new Bucs unis.

Can't stand those numbers. Looks like XFL or an arena team.

xfl uniforms were all much better than the bucs. The number fonts were pretty tame

My authentic Jackson jersey came today. I'm too stupid to link a picture and for some reason I cannot insert a link, but if you search for Flickr black4diamond you can get my page (on yahoo, it was the second search...not the black girl that come up first). I put a picture of the front/back/glowing numbers with the lights off.


whoops FLICKR black74diamond

Any chance you could snap a few up close pics of those numbers? I've been really curious to see those and to get a better look at that material.

White pants for TB, forever, please.

They save that slop.

Agreed.

Oh well I think it makes them look even worse if that popular must be one of my unpopular opinions

The white pants actually allow them to, from a far distance, look like a football team. It fits the color-color-white-color aesthetic that is associated with NFL football. That doesn't mean it looks good.

Their best look now is a worse version of their old worst look. Good job, Tamps!

@ kestrel79 they went white/white pewter socks vs. Buffalo.

@bucfan56 I tried to PM you, but it said you weren't taking PMs so I put some pics on my flickr account of the numbers. Let me know if you need more or PM me an email address. If someone is a good "linker" feel free to link my pics because I can't and they are public.

Hey thanks, hormone. I appreciate that. Not sure why it won't accept PMs. Hmm, gonna have to look I to that.

I'll host em, because they're worth it. I couldn't wrap my head around what that material could possibly be, but now I'm letting out a pretty big groan after seeing it up close, because the numbers somehow got even dumber than they already were. There is nothing unique about the material they used for this at all. It's basically runners safety vest material. How lame.

I don't mean to knock on your jersey, either. Just the brand.

Wow. That's...wow. So all this time they had people thinking they came up with some revolutionary material...when all it was is the same reflective material I use on the job on a daily basis? I mean hell, why didn't they just co-opt and incorporate blaze orange along with it to complete the look--that've been just the Nike-est thing to do, anyway, and it certainly wouldn't be any worse than what they have now. And what's with the perforation-looking pattern going on with the white/top layer of the numbers? Or is that just something for retail versions of the jersey?

Man did they screw the pooch on this identity overhaul. Like, bad.
