I'm not an Eagles fan, but they need to at least get rid of the teal.  Because despite my going to my high school reunion tonight, it is no longer the 90s.

\maybe forest green?
\\or go for the irony and use Oakland's shade of green

So if Kelly Green equals the 1970s and Midnight Green equals the 1990s what equals the 2010s?

First of all, fark the eagles and all Philadelphia teams. Second: "Herp derp. I'm an eagles fan so I think their uniforms are the best OF ALL TIME"

He writes about all the major sports as well as scandals and gambling and gossip and such.

"And such because I'm a journalist!" Hurrrrr

I would like for them to see the error of their ways and bring back Rich Kotite as head coach.

It seems that the Jets and Eagles traded colors.  I like the Kelly.

I hope not. I hated those kelly green unis.

Uh, no. those creamsicle uniforms were horrific. Matched only in ugliness by the play of the team wearing them.
And maybe those old Houston Astro uniforms.

As a Bucs fan I agree that those are awful. I remember when they went ditched the creamsicle and went to red and thought it looked good. This time not so much. The digital clock font for the numbers is especially egregious.

Igor Jakovsky: The digital clock font for the numbers is especially egregious.


I think that's what does it for me.  If the numbers even matched the wordmark font it'd be a 100% improvement.  And really, who the fark is so goddamned blind that they need helmet logos to take up the entire side of a helmet?

And to this day, I don't understand the hate for the creamsicles.  Even with the modern abominations, if you're casually glancing at a game, it'll take you a second to figure out if it's them or Atlanta or the Cards.  NO ONE ever mistook the creamsicles for anything else.  And I'd assume 90% of dislike for them is people who just don't like orange.

We currently have six teams wearing red jerseys, four wearing black, three wearing green, two wearing purple, one orange, one brown and the rest are shades of blue.  That's half the farking league, and, a third of whom combine it with red.  A little color variety wouldn't kill the NFL.

Are you in design? If so, I get your hate. However, there is a difference between bland, goofy, annoying, poorly designed, and just plain ugly. The new Bucs unis are two scoops of the first four, but the creamiscle jerseys were ugly.

If I were a Bucs fan, I would rock a throwback one for sure, they are unique, charming, and ugly as sin.
 
2014-08-09 11:42:15 AM  
I didn't think it was the creamsicle alone so much as having it paired with the "gay pirate" logo that did it. But those new uniforms are just plain awful. Well, except that they're not plain at all. Worst part is they probably paid out the wazoo for that design too. And the idea that two years of testing by the league still allowed it to pass is absurd.

The kelly green for the Eagles is okay, I suppose -- I'm not crazy about the dark green. Didn't they have a paler shade than that in the sixties, though? (the kelly, that is) Maybe it's my memory that's faded.

Good lord, do the idiots who work at Nike have a contest to see who can come up with the ugliest shiat ever?  So much THIS, and most of their shoes are an abomination as well.

I don't mind those uniforms at all. Nothing beats the diamond back camo unis though, every time I see those I imagine someone from Europe happening upon one of their games and thinking that Americans are as moronic as they've always suspected.

The camo uniforms are moronic. Those things, and the 7th inning "God Bless America" "but look how awesomely patriotic we are!" business needs to go.

Those are pretty bad, ya. I'd stack the Creamsicles up with the Stillers and Packers throwbacks as the worst 3.

I seriously want to find every Steeler fan that's ever considered calling the prison unis okay and smacking some sense into them.  As for the number label ones...they're pretty bad too.
 
2014-08-09 02:05:09 PM  
Would they rather wear uniforms colored like those worn by Las Vegas wedding chapel proprietors
and cheesy TV game show hosts?  At least Peter Pan and Tinker Bell are favorite characters in
Disney cartoon features (and have been since 1953); munchkin mayors have been beloved since
1939, and leprechauns have been popular since the debut of Lucky Charms in 1964.

Sorry, I can't hear you because Carolina's blue shirts have blinded my ears.

Only thing really bad on those is the numbers. Just doesn't fit the theme. Should have stuck with the old font.

At least those helmets are one base-color. I think the chrome on TB is different, in a good way.

Dallas needs to go to the star-shoulders full time. And the "always wear white" superstition isn't working anymore, let it go.

Philly, what's wrong with looking 90s? Maybe change the color if you really really want to, but please don't bring back the plain grey "the hell is that" blob wings.

Not terrible, not worth what it would cost either though.

Off topic for tonight's games: which does everyone expect more clownshoes: CLE/DET or HOU/ARI? Need to decide which to watch.

It's preseason, so tough to know where and when clownshoes will appear.  But I'd say watch and see how badly Johnny Football fails.

The kelly green uniforms look nice. The number shadows look stupid.

The Bucs' new helmets are an improvement; most of their uniform is an improvement, but the numbers' typeface doesn't really look like it belongs with a team called the Buccaneers.

Then again, I tend to hate "classic' (read: boring, unimaginative) uniforms.

That's because you're leaving it on the current uniform just changing the color slightly.

They need to be Kelly Green and white a la the 1960s uniform. They also need to ditch the damn black uniform. The Eagles are not black. Just like the Flyers aren't black and the Sixers aren't black.

For the birds, black has only every been an accent color and it should stay that way.

Additionally, subby, go fark yourself.

I'm watching my Packers take on the Tits. But I'd be watching the Loins/Browns if this game wasn't on.

2014-08-09 11:44:28 PM

2014-08-10 08:41:28 AM

But everyone wants to buy black uniforms because they look cool and phresh.  Or something.
 
2014-08-10 02:41:27 PM  
Anything would be an improvement over their current unis. The current look reminds me of Underoos.
 
2014-08-10 03:20:47 PM  
I can't explain why but I really liked the green wing on white helmets they had back in the early 70s. Back in the day I ordered custom teams for my electric football set and I got the Eagles as the opposition team (to the Cowboys, of course) just because I liked those helmets. I must have been a weird kid.
