White Sox at 15, behind...the Blue Jays?  The Royals?  THE GIANTS?  Yeah, good luck with that.  White Sox uniforms are a top 5 with the Cubs, Yankees, Tigers and Orioles.

I don't know if I can take seriously the opinion of someone who doesn't like the Pirates' black alternate jersey.

I always liked the A's logo.

meanmutton: T.rex: buckeyebrain: Gunny Highway: Dont the Indians have a red C on their cap now?  I thought Wahoo went away a few years back.

They still pull out Wahoo on occasion, like yesterday (though they had the red-C batting helmets) against the A's.

I love how ESPN slams Cleveland for a racist logo, yet THEY are the ones benefiting from that very same cool logo by plastering it all over their site and broadcasts     If ESPN truly felt it was so bad, then use the C or the I, instead... Don't leach off Wahoo, then claim its un-PC.

One person writing an opinion column is not "ESPN".  That said, ESPN absolutely should use this:

Frankly, it looks better than the stupid, racist cartoon.


I'm a huge Indians fan, and I agree that the Wahoo needs to go. I only buy team merch with the C, as I don't want to walk around with a big racist caricature on my head. Also, it annoys me that the team uses two different color sets for it's block C sets and the script/wahoo sets. It's most noticeable when they're using the navy block C batting helmets with the dark blue script Indians jerseys. Uni Watch actually did a design competition for re-doing the Indians team name/uniforms/logos, and I liked the winner:

Granted, I'd make a few tweaks (possibly re-including the Red cap, or a throwback "Bronchos" look of the a white block C with a blue background, making the primary home a solid white with name on back, not having the space between the gaps in the S, p, d, e and s be colored in as if the wordmark was a sticker), but it's a good start. As far as the name, it's a good fit as it ties in with the team and city's history quite well, and Spiders is a unique but suitable team name. It's better than any of the other former team names for Cleveland (Bronchos, Lake Shores, Bluebirds, Blues, Naps, Molly McGuires, and Forest Citys being the others).

rickythepenguin: yeah, the snakes togs are boring.  Yeah, Snakes, WE NEEDED ANOTHER GODAMN RED TEAM.


I can at least justify that the Diamonbacks are unique in being red and black (whereas 12 different teams use both red and blue in their color scheme, and that's not including the Yankees - whose logo uses both - or the White Sox - who use red/blue for their 80s throwbacks). Now that the Astros have gone back to orange, they're the only team rocking that combination of colors aside from the Reds, who have a much different shade and don't use black so prominently. So the potential is there for it to be unique/distinguished without being awful. Having "DBacks" written in giant font is just not very good execution.

By logo I meant uniform.

Billy Crystal Meth Lab: I enjoy following Uni Watch blog, but their writer has always seemed like biggest douche.


Yeah, i'm a big uniwatch blog fan too. I agree with Paul's taste in uniforms 90% of the time as a traditionalist. Then one day he decided he cared about native american named logos/teams, now he's all over preachy/political about native american imagery in sports. He lives in Brooklyn, I bet he's never even had a conversation with a member of a tribe.

If it's limited to the Cleveland Indians logo and the name "Redskins", I find it hard to disagree with him. If he has an issue with the name "Braves" or whatever he's a douche.

Yeah. They've had some abominations in their time, but the current home/away combo is a great look (minus the black alternate). Definitely top 10 if not top 5.

I was also always partial to the late 80s/early 90s "C" hat, which a bunch of idiots get confused with a Cubs or Cleveland hat. Dummies.

Sometimes a professional team's logo/symbol has nothing to do with the city. And the logos change for marketing reasons. But in Europe, the team crest rarely changes and usually represents the city the team is located in. Case in point, the amateur soccer team of my parents' hometown in Italy.

Way to f*ck up an age-old Fark meme. God you Cards fans are a bunch of goddamn rubes. Go abort yourself.


I'm sorry that you are so butthurt because your team is the worst in all of sports. I'll go get your pacifier.

i like the script or font, whatever.  just the scheme is so farked out.  the "purple and teal" was schlocky but when they minimized the teal and just had the purple / black, that was tight.  the pinstriped purple was cheesy but....ehhh.  they ain't bringing it back.  except the one game a year when they do throwback night.

(although a few years ago, they did throwback night, which started a mini-streak to go into the playoffs, and i recall the team lobbying to keep wearing their "lucky" uniforms....)

IAmRight:
The universe is laughing behind your back: Don't be hating on the W. That's my favorite part of their uniform. They were using that way before Walgreens stole it.

That's not "they".


You know, I'd have thought it was reasonably obvious that I was referring to the city, not the specific franchise.
