We’ve done the best lists for the four major sports as far as their sports’ top uniforms of all time. Now we’re doing a list of the worst uniforms in all of professional sports, I’ve excluded college because this list would be full of those. Here are the 10 worst uniforms in all of professional sports right now!
10. Minnesota Twins home uniform
For years and years,the Twins had a really nice uniform with the navy blue pinstripes and the red wordmark and numerals. Then in 2015, the Twins eliminated the pinstripes and flip-flopped the colors on the wordmark and numerals and then,for some reason,added gold shadows. I don’t think that the Twins’ home uniforms were ever broken to begin with,but if you’re going to change them,why not go for the retros that you wear from time to time? Those are pretty sweet! These just don’t do it for me.
Though their current uniforms are a very clean,simple look,it is also boring and overkill. So many teams in Major League Baseball are wearing navy blue and white and the Padres are one of the teams who has been wearing it and only it for the last few seasons. There are rumblings that the team may add sky blue and yellow to the mix for 2016,but why not use a look that’s just begging to be used again? The brown and yellows from the 1970s!
When the Nets relocated from New Jersey in 2012, they retired their red,white,and blue colors and adopted black and white as their colors. Then the team came out with the most simple and boring uniforms you could have if your team’s colors are black and white.
The team did,however,adopt an alternate home uniform that paid homage to the old Nets of the ABA with stars on the sides last season. Ditch the sleeves from it and you’ve got an upgraded uniform from what you have now. Add an away version of it as well,too!
7. San Antonio Spurs Silver Alternates
The Spurs have long had a great set of both home and away uniforms, but their silver alternates miss the mark. I like the idea of having a silver alternate to wear either at home or on the road,but it doesn’t look very good. First off,the numeral on the upper chest and also having no team name on the front of the uniform whatsoever. Instead,the team’s spur logo adorns the front of the jersey. If you just made this uniform mirror the home/away set,you’d really be in business. Instead, the alternate is too gussied up and too busy and uninspired.
A few years ago the Miami Dolphins decided to overhaul their look and make it simpler. Out was the longtime leaping dolphin wearing a helmet with an M on the side and in was the swimming dolphin that you may find as a tramp stamp on a 17-year-old girl who has daddy issues. Also,the uniforms are flat-out boring. There aren’t any cool stripes on the sleeves and there isn’t enough orange at all. The Dolphins are,however,planning to wear a throwback uniform that some fans hope the team can go back to full time and maybe once and for all,get that tramp stamp removed by a laser once and for all.
These new Hawks’ uniforms wouldn’t be so bad if there wasn’t so much puke green on them. After seven seasons in their red,navy,and blue uniforms, the Hawks went to a new color scheme with red,black,and neon green. Really,neon green? I get the red and the black as they were part of your color scheme at one point and I know that blue and neon green were as well,but why are red,black,and puke green your new color scheme?
I think if that green was a yellowish gold it would look a lot better. This uniform just sucks out loud!
For more than thirty years the Los Angeles Clippers sucked out loud, but in that time they had some pretty decent looking uniforms. Now the team and the franchise is thriving in the City of Angels and they have a new look that is god-awful. The new logo and wordmark are reminiscent of an EA Sports video game and the LAC alternate logo is too jumbled together. Also,the uniforms look like they were made with Microsoft paint and were cut and pasted together. I understand owner Steve Ballmer’s desire to move away from the Donald Sterling era,but that could easily have been achieved without a logo/uniform change. Those were far from being any of the team’s problems.
3. San Francisco 49ers Black Alternate
For the past few seasons,the 49ers have had a great uniform. When they went back to the uniforms of the past it was a winning look. Now the team,for some reason, has unveiled a black alternate uniform with black pants and red numerals and trim. The helmet,however,is still the same (partly because teams can only wear one helmet color). Also,the 49ers’ name eludes to the Gold Rush of 1849. Where’s the fucking gold (other than the helmet)? Also,the 49ers plan to wear these uniforms for their season opener against the Vikings at their stadium where on the field it could get up to 100 degrees. Yeah,because that’s smart to wear all black in hot conditions. This is not a good look and it needs to be abandoned,much like the team abandoned San Francisco for Santa Clara.
It’s hard to get a decent looking uniform if your colors are teal,black,and gold,we get it. But in the 1990s and early 2000s, the Jaguars had a pretty decent look going. Enter 2015 and the Jags have an identity crisis with theirs. First off,the helmet. Why the fuck is it two different colors? What was wrong with having a black helmet like you had before?
Also,the uniform itself looks like it was made with Microsoft Paint and is waaaaaaay too busy. It’s no wonder why this team is not only unsuccessful on the field,but at the box office. Players don’t want to be caught dead in these uniforms and fans don’t want to root for a team wearing them.
I think that far and away,the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the absolute worst uniforms in all of professional sports at this moment in time. They went from a pretty decent looking uniform to a uniform that’s too busy with too many colors that don’t belong together at the same time. I think the helmet looks just fine and is maybe the only cool thing about the uniform,but the rest of it sucks. The pewter shoulder yokes, the digital clock numbers,it’s just an overall bad look. I blame Nike for a lot of it because they’re making bad uniforms left and right with teams that don’t really need uniform changes (See the aforementioned Jaguars and even the Browns to an extent for proof as to why if it isn’t broke,don’t fix it!) and until Nike stops and realizes they’re fucking up sports uniforms left and right,it may continue and might involve your team. Watch your back!
