Worst uniforms in Sports

The Raptors ranked 8th in the worst uniforms in sports history. The old powder blue Blue Jays Uniforms are also listed @ #4. Not exactly shocking.

Quote:
They broke into the NBA in 1995 with no style at all but that is often the case with expansion teams, logos and colors. This was out of left field with a Dinosaur or sketch of a Raptor on the front dribbling a basketball. Laughable. Not to mention the colors bright red, purple, black, and silver. They were going after the Jurassic Park crowd or the hoops crowd? Did Jeff Goldblum own shares in the team? They also drafted Damon Stoudamire with their first pick his nickname was Mighty Mouse and that didn't match either.


Ouch!

Ugly Dino - Worst uniforms in sports

I rather liked the Dino unis. I hope someday they wear them for a couple of games a season.

The Damon Stoudamire shot at the end of the article was needless.

I'm a fan of powder blue jerseys. E.g. The Chargers' home jersey.

Also, how don't the Bobcats road orange uni's make the cut?

yeah - what the hell were they getting to with that? Dude ended up being the rookie of the year ffs.

As for the list, i completely disagree with the Blue Jays suggestion as well as the Denver Nuggets one, the Houston Astros and the LA kings uniform.

Those Astros and Vancouver Canuck uniforms were horrendous.

I don't know how anyone can look at those old Raps uniforms and actually like them, even a bit. They're pretty laughable.

I didn't like it when the Pistons changed their uniforms. They should have always been red, white and blue. I'm a fan of radical looking uniforms. I like the Brampton Battalion unis. That army green is sweet. I also love TFCs pink jerseys.

We know what you think. We knew it from time. Had to roll my eyes when I saw that you initiated the thread.

I have one of those -found a Mcgrady one at value village- and I prefer them to the contemporary monotonous design. All the jerseys in the NBA are beginning to look the same -design wise- atleast these were original.

did they have to put the picture with oliver miller modelling the jersey?
he would make any jersey look bad.
i actually liked the oldschool purple jersey (the home white is awesome)... i think we should have a throw back game a few times a year and wear them.

I'd love one of the old whites. Anybody but those two numbers though.
