Next on Versus: Bear-Wrasslin’

Hockey

If there’s ever been an NHL fight more likely to end in awesomeness, it was this one on Friday night. Florida’s Olli Jokinen looks like he’s getting ready to dive in and start biting. Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler looks like he’s getting ready to grapple WWE-style. Unorthodox techniques on both sides, to be sure.

So what happened? This is what happened. What did I say? Awesomeness.

Uni-related notes here: The Panthers’ yellow piping detail looks ridiculous, especially when overlapped by a bright white C. The hemline on the Canucks’ jerseys aims less toward ridiculous and more toward silly. And for frick’s sake, someone wash Kesler’s breezers!

Go forth into awesomeness. — Bryan

    The second I turned this game on, I was shocked at how bad the Panthers jersey’s stuck out. The piping looks awful (especially with the captain’s C or A over the top). I could have swore I also saw a paw on one guys jersey overlap (maybe a smaller player?). Also, the half arm strips on the elbows are ugly. The shoulder stripping ends behind the neck to allow the Reebok logo, which really sticks out.

    Then again, as they showed fans in the crowd with old Panthers jerseys, they weren’t much better (with the pointed shoulder stripping).

    The new alternates for the A’s were shown off at Fanfest last week.

  • Tape | February 2, 2008 at 8:06 am |

    last night, UMass Amherst @ Northeastern was the Hockey East Game of the Week on NESN. UMass was wearing gray breezers. generally they have maroon breezers, like in this picture. I thought the grays looked really cool.

    The only place I could find a good picture of the grays was in a flash-based photo gallery located here. click on the 10/20/2007 HCKY vs. UCONN link.

    We already have gone through this unneeded use of black in a uniform much in the same way we have destroyed the USC Southern California Song Girls “shooting the moon” with their thongs when they twirl on TV, the gold (or white) “C’ to signify UCLA’s 100 NCAA Championships or the green dot that tells Mr. NFL Referee the quarterback has a radio communications system inside his helmet. We’re beating a fricking dead horse around here with them.

    Now, before someone gets pissed off about being on their lawn or getting near their damned shed, I will stop and leave for the monent, and say that will be the last time anyone today will mention them. Gracias, amigos y amigas.

    UMass has been wearing the grey breezers all season. I thought they were only wearing them at home, though. They always remind me of Ohio State Football for some reason.

    I mean, how does anyone in the Panther front office honestly think the piping look good?? Is it like the NFL, where they have to use it for a period of time before they are allowed to change….

    I’m interested to know what the favorite uniforms are in Major League Baseball, the NBA, the NFL, and the NHL. I’m talking about current uniforms, and I mean the whole package (home, road, and applicable alternates). Here are mine:

    Basketball: I’m not a huge basketball fan, but I’ll go with the Clippers out of my limited knowledge.

    Hockey: Only one choice here: Canadiens. Honorable mentions to the Bruins and Canucks.

  • Ryan Cousineau | February 2, 2008 at 11:04 am |

    To answer all of the above threads at once:

    -best uni in hockey is Les Glorieux. I try not to be a uniform reactionary (or at least not as reactionary as some here), but some unis were born perfect. (Actually, interesting to see the subtle uni-differences there).

    -In the second photo from Bryan, I think Kesler is trying to reshape Jokinen into the Canucks’ leaping-orca logo.

    -I can do without black jerseys, green dots, and uni-minutia, but sometimes the Song Girls are the only thing that get me through the day. ‘Kay?

    The US has used plenty of alternate jerseys. The men had light blue pinstripes, the women had pink jerseys, and this is all just in the last year or two.

    I can’t be bothered to look it up right now, but I’m willing to bet that there have been plenty of other alt. national team jerseys between now and 1979

  • Wayne | February 2, 2008 at 12:13 pm |

    NFL: Browns (I really like the Browns’ gray facemasks and their sleeve striping. I wish the Vikes would adopt that style, much like the throwbacks they wore early this season.)

    MLB: Cardinals

    NBA: Celtics or Bulls

    NHL: Original 6

    I was going to say Bears and Jets too for NFL, but Fleeser is looking for favorite team unis including alternates. Those orange Bears and monochrome green Jets unis are just too ugly. I can handle the black Celtics and Bulls alts, since a lot of other teams have worse alts.

    The article mentions it was a one timer, but I agree the blue pinstripes is an alternate. Still, this red France jersey is really big news in Europe, where the only thing teams happen to alter are socks and shorts. With France and Italy being the last two countries not to have ever changed their away colors , this move could be followed by a lot.

    Here’s my “Canadian” take. We’ve always called them pants, not “breezers” and especially not “shorts”.
    During the disaster known as the “Cooperall period”, there were actually two components – the girdle and the shell, which was either short with socks or ugh… long, with no pants. Thankfully, that is no more, however, there are guys out there who will wear a shell over their pants.
    Again, the “Breezers” term seem strictly a Minnesota thing, so I would say that any general discussion regarding hockey should refer to the name pants. Thanks!

    Bad piping or not, I still think the Panthers color scheme is great. No one else really combines those colors, I think it looks great. Panther logo is not the best, but I do enjoy the Stick/Palm cross shoulder logo. Just as a shoulder logo though. If they got rid of the piping I think the jerseys would be great, guess thats just me.

    Every time I see the Canucks jersey the worse it looks. Moreso the whites. Removing the “Vancouver” and adding some green to the logo would go a long way, but I think they need to increse the stripes, it looks too bland but not clean enough. It just seems like its supposed to have more stripes. Looks like a high school team jersey with a modern logo slapped on it. They either need to go full tilt old school (their originals/last years alts) or make it sync up better with the current logo. Its a weird mish mash.

  • CV | February 2, 2008 at 3:01 pm |

    The Oakland A’s single A affiliate in the NWL, the Vancouver Canadians, unveiled their new logo last week. They ditched the blue, added some grey and tweaked the lettering. The main change is the change from the C by adding an apostrophe S.

    Looks sharp in my eyes, though the new uniforms haven’t been revealed yet. One problem that’s plagued the C’s, based from what I saw last season, is their inability to wear their socks properly. Here’s hoping there’s an end to the pajama pants.

    Hockey pants are hockey pants. They’re neither shorts nor breezers. Consider it an endearing quirk. :-)

    Speaking of the NHL, all of the jerseys with the bib stripes are horrible. I assume that’s where the jersey panels are stitched together. I don’t see why Reebok didn’t just change the panel size because it also screwed up the shoulder panels/designs/colors.

    LEAST FAVORITE ENSEMBLES
    MLB: Toronto Blue Jays. Not enough blue for a team called the Blue Jays. Get blue hats, please. While you’re at it, let your home uniforms have a passing resemblance to the roadies. A common number font would be a good start. And nice try with the flashback uniform. White at home, losers. Dishonorable mention goes to the Mets, Padres, and Astros for essentially turning their “official” road grays into sparingly-used anti-clash road alternates. Exhibits A, B, and C why alternate jersey regulation could be a good thing in the majors.
    NFL: Buffalo Bills. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think the RBK Edge system leaked its way into the NFL through these uniforms. Rectangular shoulders that scream, “Look at this, ain’t it tacky?”, stupid socks (either have a nice stripe job, or have one color on top of white, please), and a sensual overload of almost-like colors (white and silver, royal and navy, in addition to red) make their current uniforms the worst. Throwback alternates remind us of how look they used to look. Dishonorable mention goes to the Bengals, if only for the consistently inconsistent side panel. Above the armpit? Below? Why not change its color so we can’t tell?
    NBA: Phoenix Suns. Under-arm side panels are rarely good, but my G-d, those full-length side panels are atrocious. Gray does not look good next to purple or orange. Last names would look better straight or vertically arched. The radial arch they have now gets clownish even with seven letters (Barbosa). What if they had Skitishvili? I’m getting skittish…Dishonorable mention to the Mavericks, which must have the Suns’ template due to their surname woes. Dishonorable mention revoked from the Pacers because they don’t have pinstripes anymore.
    NHL: I could flag any team with upper right front jersey numbers. I don’t like the look because it makes the jersey too full, and can leave no room for a Stanley Cup or memorial patch. If you insist, why not move the number down to the front right thigh? For argument’s sake, let’s roast the Buffaslug Sabres for starting the damned trend, for having a terrible crest, having stupid shorts/pants/breezers, and for the pain and suffering caused by last year’s modern/throwback mismatch. Dishonorable mention to the Islanders (their Franken-jerseys make them the Buffalo Bills of the NHL), the Ducks (that word mark makes for a really weak “crest”), and all teams with un-wraparound sock stripes.

I also love the Panther’s color scheme, and their pants striping is the best. and i love the Eagle’s pants template. i love the thick black/slate gray on the midnight green with the white piping in between.

    MLB: Tigers. Great color scheme, and i love the old english font.
    NBA: Suns. Nice template, and Excluding the orange alternate, i don’t think that the orange is overdone. If they replaced the orange in the color scheme to mettalic gold, it would look better.

    the list of uni’s i dislike is hard to narrow down but i’ll give it a shot in the 4 major sports, with coll. bb & fb for good measure

    MLB-nationals (home and away, but not alt)…pods sand-piss…astros pinstripes
    NFL-anything cincinnati wears
    NBA-(all alts, but not all throwbacks)…worst is black and gold wizards
    NHL-buffaslugs
    C-hoop-ucla (with the yellow c)
    C-football-oregon state sportsbravers

    I’ll just push the sarcasm button for you…
    For the record, the original question asked for the best and worst uniform sets, asking to take into account the home jersey, the away, and any alternates. This is what makes the Blue Jays’ uniforms terrible. Almost no common elements from one style to the other. Totally disjointed. Because of that, I didn’t mention the Wizards. Their New Orleans Saints wanna-be uniforms are TERRIBLE, but their regulars aren’t that bad. The Suns got my Golden Razzie for a consistently putrid set.
    So, you ask, why didn’t I criticize the Cowboys for their lack of matching? Because Mr. Lukas has a whole article on that. Besides, at least the Cowboys uniforms say, “I’m a Dallas Cowboy,” while the Bills uniforms merely complete the wardrobe malfunction trinity, along with the Go Daddy in court girl and Janet Jackson.

    [quote comment=”215708″]Baseball: It would be the A’s if they kept the green alts, but this year I have to go for the Royals.
    Football: Raiders. Simple and effective.
    Basketball: I’m not a huge basketball fan, but I’ll go with the Clippers out of my limited knowledge.
    Hockey: Only one choice here: Canadiens. Honorable mentions to the Bruins and Canucks.[/quote]

    And my least favorites:

    Baseball: Astros, Diamondbacks, and Blue Jays.
    Football: Falcons and Titans.
    Basketball: Hawks (ripoff of the Arizona Wildcats), Wizards
    Hockey: Most of them. The Thrashers, Panthers, Islanders, Ducks and Oilers stand out as particularly bad.
    Bonus: Paris Saint-Germain in France and Ajax from The Netherlands. And Texas from Texas.

    YES! I KNEW the tri-color paneling (for a lack of a better term) of the Suns reminded me of something! That’s it. Not a great soccer look, but an even worse basketball look due to a lack of basketball sleeves. Extra turd points go to Ajax because their name letters are white with a thin red border. So names can be long enough to get truncated on the sides. So SZCZERBIAK might read ZERB or something like that. A picture demonstrating this was an Open Thread a while back. Chalk that one up as a design flaw…

    Alright so we are doing least favorites?

    Buffalo Bills period, end of list. There is no team even close. Not even the really sweet throwback/alts can mitigate the nastiness of their home/road combo.

  • BigBootyLover58 | February 2, 2008 at 11:39 pm |

    Wow, so this comment section has devolved into a forum for people to list their favorite uniforms. This is the kind of crap that has been plaguing the Creamer boards recently.

    Is this really the best place to list your favorite teams / jerseys?

    [quote comment=”216200″][quote comment=”215942″]I don’t know why, but I always get annoyed when people refer to hockey pants as “breezers” here. I grew up in Maine playing hockey and I’ve never heard hockey pants called “breezers”. I guess it’s a regional thing, but they’re hockey pants. Not shorts, pants.[/quote]

    That’s odd … I get annoyed when people refer to things like this as pants. Pants. Not pants. I don’t know what else they should be called, but pants isn’t it.[/quote]
    Maybe you could start a campaign, a la “ditch the black”, and erase 100 or years of tradition…. but I doubt it. Can’t say I know why they are called pants but that’s the way it is and has been for as long as I’ve been playing.

    I saw France was wearing these when visiting Spain this week in a friendly game. So, we had France dressed up as Spain (red jerseys, blue shorts) and Spain dressed up as somebody else.

    Somebody smack the FFF and remind them what their national team’s nickname is.
