The Detroit Lions unveiled a set of new uniforms tonight, with a thirteen-minute livestream that reached more than 40,000 viewers. Here is a helpful comparative chart from the official website of the new design, the aptly-named DetroitLionsUniforms.com:
Thursday Night Football is the NFL at its worst. Between the half-rested players and the blindingly ugly uniforms, it’s no wonder that Richard Sherman characterized it as a “poopfest.” Two years ago, the NFL made teams play in monochromatic Nike “Color Rush” jerseys for the express purpose of selling more shit, even…
Folks, get a load of this:
That up there is the logo of the Vegas Golden Knights, definitely a huge improvement on the “PLACE HOLDER” graphic that greeted fans who turned out for last night’s botched unveiling of the newest NHL team’s name, logo, and colors. But is the whole package any good? It’s time to have opinions.
After just one season, the Arizona Diamondbacks are retiring the egregiously weird uniforms pictured above in favor of a style that does not make it look as if the players’ legs have been dipped in blood.
The White Sox announced today Chris Sale is suspended five days for his outburst yesterday that reportedly included the All-Star pitcher destroying throwback uniforms he didn’t want to wear.
I certainly never hated any of the Panthers’ old uniforms. (Except that blue alternate they used for a couple of years. Blue? Come on.) I even kind of liked the leaping panther logo; it certainly dated the look, but not in a bad way, if that makes sense. Of the many teams that could use a makeover, this was not one of…
You’ve probably never heard of CD Palencia, and probably never will again. The club plays in Spanish fourth division, though they currently are in the playoffs for promotion to the third. To support their promotion hopes, they’ve unveiled a new kit. It is ... strange.
Reactions to last season’s debut of monochromatic Nike NFL uniforms ran the gamut from “hideous” to “fine, whatever” to “I am colorblind and literally cannot tell these teams apart.” But enough of you morons actually went out and bought those jerseys, I guess, so they’re doing it again this year.
Clothing company Mitchell & Ness, best known for its retro uniforms, has compiled the data on the top-selling throwback jerseys in every state for 2015. Your new champion, at least by number of states? Larry Bird, shoving out Kobe Bryant from last year’s top spot.
The headline on the Diamondbacks’ official site is maybe less than objective: “D-backs wow with cutting-edge new uniforms.” Well, whatever else you can say about the uniforms unveiled yesterday, you can’t deny there sure are a lot of them.
The absurd “color rush” uniforms worn by the Jets and Bills last night were bad enough if you could see them. They were worse for the millions of viewers who couldn’t. The NFL says: oops.
Nike introduced some stupid new uniforms for tonight’s Bills-Jets game, and the color-on-color combination is especially bad for people with colorblindness, who are taking to Twitter to let the NFL know their displeasure.
It didn’t have to be this way. The Atlanta Hawks could have designed nice, normal uniforms, like other teams get to have. They could have avoided aiming for “retro-futuristic” and missing so badly they ended up with “textured alarm clock.”
The 76ers unveiled their new uniforms last night, and they’re clean and lovely. Other than the Fierce Ben Franklin secondary logo, there’s really not much to complain about. This is a team that’s going to look good while it’s being embarrassingly bad.
Clippers owner Steve Ballmer went on Conan today, and while there he officially unveiled what he called “the new Clippers logo”. While Ballmer didn’t bring along any jerseys, the logo is the same as what was on mockups that were leaked to Uni Watch back in April. Here is how the new logo will supposedly look on a…
In 2006, the no-longer Disney-owned Mighty Ducks of Anaheim underwent a complete rebranding, changing their name, their purple-primary uniforms, and most crucially, dropping the duckbilled Jacques-Plante-Mk. 2 mask logo. In exchange, they unveiled the “D-foot,” which has now been the team’s identity nearly as long as…
