  • Wow that just looks bad. :)
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • My eyes hurt... I like it the way it is...

    If you are going to go with more green, I think it would have to be a different shade. IMO, they used just enough.

  • No thanks on that version of the helmet but I sure wish they made the grey in the updated Hawk logo to be metallic/silver, not the dirty snow color it is now.

  • The neon green is a color that looks pretty good on our uniforms as a detail color. If you add more it becomes too strong. I love our uniforms now and I have to say no to that helmet. And this is coming from a guy who loves the neon green.

    The metallic/silver idea sounds very good though.

  • Neon any color will never, and I repeat never stand the test of time. We need LESS lime neon green, not more.

    But this is what politicians do. You add more then when you take it away people think they have less and everyone is happy in this case

    Or like taxes they temporarily removed some and then they don't want to put any back cause it is an increase.

  • The green is meant to be a tiny accent. To be honest, .NET has a bit too much green also.

    i know i made this thread, it was to get the opinon of more green on the helmet, but personally, i agree with you Sgt. Largent. I wish there was NO green - ZERO, ZIP, NOTHING

    if we replaced the neon green with a metallic darker silver (gunmetal) - it would look BAD ASS !! (IMO)


    people have said "oh we'd look like a cowboys uniform"

    cowboys are a completely differrent shade of blue, and a bright silver, and then white

    we would be a darker more intimidating blue, an intimidating shade of gunmetal, and then white

    plus we have an intimidating 'Hawk on our helmets - they have just a boring star

  • The current helmet is my least favourite part of the new uni's. Just doesn't look right. I'm not feeling the middle stripe... mainly because it looks like it's been stuck on using glue and scissors. If it was meshed into the helmet somehow and looked a bit more natural... great. It just looks like a sticker and I'm sure I've seen air bubbles on some of the players helmets recently. Never been a fan of the two-headed snake 'Seahawk' either. Not sure why the logo can't just been on the side of the helmet as it is.

    Also, it's neither a matte finish or a metalic finish. It's kind of in-between and just looks a bit... crap. Although the new uni's have grown on me overall, the helmet kind of symbolises just how little cohesion there is between each element. Whenever we replace the uni's, something equally modern but less bat-shit crazy would be fine with me.

    On the contrary...it is the coolest aspect of our uniform! We all can have our personal opinion. Referring to our helmuts as "bat-shit crazy" is ludirous!!

  • Keeping the angrier (new) Hawk logo, I would be ecstatic if we went back to the original silver and blue. Alot like Detroit's, but I always felt it was one of the classiest uniforms of all time. Have we even worn them for a throw back occasion? I can't recall.

    They should just use chin straps and mouth guards that color. Or the face mask....

  • That's definitely too much. The old school unis with the royal blue and kelly green pulled it off IMHO, but no to the neon, please.

    Oh, and the current way the stripes connect in the back of the helmet doesn't work for me. It was OK in the day, when it was a simple wraparound stripe, but the new logo demands that they don't connect in the back. Just put the logo on the side of the helmet. JMO, don't shoot me.

  • I doesn't make me puke like some here, but i don't like it.--but maybe a thin line of the green around the logo all the way around would make it pop. I mean VERY little.

    The green should be minimal to be most effective.
