Flames, Here's How You Fix It

Haven't done one of these in almost a month. Got some good stuff, though. Here are some suggestions for the Calgary Flames on how to fix their new Rbk EDGE jerseys — not that they will.

On the left, we see two simple fixes. One, you drop a stroke around the Albertan flag since blue on red looks bad — but that's only true on TV and computer screens. When looking at the shoulder patch with my own eyes, I think it looks fine. Good, even.

And two, for the piping haters, let's grab the bucket tool and fill in everything below that black stripe. I guess that's preferable to dumping the stripe altogether. But what do I know? On the right is a different idea which involves switching to a black jersey with a red flaming C. It's also got a shoulder yoke that extends to the elbows. Of which, I am not a fan.

So then what about just simplifying? Ease off on all the striping a little. These here, they work. I'm still a little weirded out by the piping thing under the arms. Looks strange there. But I like the more classic feel of the arm stripes.

Anyway, those are just a few of many options for the Flames. But they're on the ice now. Nothing will change at least for a little while.

i actually like the current flames jersey. not as good as last year's but, i like it.

anyway, i like the first 'fix it'. i am okay with the piping, this is a good fix for those whom are not. the others...not so good.

once i get enough 'spending' money together, i am going to get myself an authentic flames jersey. i really do like it.

I just hate the black C.

Is it really too much to ask for a little creativity when going for the regional-pride angle? Yes lots of teams reference it in their jerseys, but they make use of original designs to do it. Simply slapping the flags onto the shoulders in the first place stinks of laziness, a white border dosen't fix that.

nothing AT ALL is wrongwith the flames jerseys. worry about your hideous tampa one instead.
