I've always thought the Saints had one of the best uniforms around...of course, we're not gonna get any love from SI ('cuz the Saints aren't in LA, NY or the NHL, apparently the only areas/groups with any decent uniforms). But you know someone on this list WANTED to vote for the Saints, judging by the beginning of the Boston Bruins' blurb (#15 out of 16 on the list). If those clowns are black and gold, I'm an illegal immigrant.

Wow. The Brown's helmet really "conveys the team name".

Oh, wait. The name of the team is the Browns and the helmet is orange...

Stupid.

The Cubs, Bears & Bulls should probably be on that list. At least the Cubs and Bears, before the Browns, IMHO.

The Jeats and Giants might also get consideration, if I was making the list.

The "rookie watch" is a joke. They want to penalize Colston for playing in the "Saints system" yet glow over Addai. What about the Colts' system? And Young? Gimme a break!

They are black and gold and their franchise is more historic and means more to the NHL than the Saints mean to the NFL.

Our uniforms could match, that would be a good start for me.

I'm not saying that Bush SHOULD be on the Rookie Watch List, but out of the top 10, he's not even there? That's a shocker just because of his popularity.

It would be nice if oour front office recognized that other teams care about the look and update of the uniforms. We even got new uni's in the Army. I waiting for throwback days when I can come to work in a classic "grey" uniform Ha!

Well... since the Brown's name really has nothing to do with the color brown. Orange makes as much sense as anything else.

I have pitied Cleveland for so long and their NFL team doesn't do much to enhance that city's image, which , btw, is sort of a "no-image" situation anyway. If I've ever been to Cleveland, I sure don't recall it nor do I thing I've ever even just changed planes there. Just no reason to go there although I have met some folks who are 'from" Cleveland but for the life of me, I have no recollection of any interesting things eve mentioned as being associated with that city.

So, with that in mind, the name "browns" and the color "brown" seem very apportiate for a location that has so little to offer culturally, creatively, intellectually, or any other way for that matter. Maybe that's why they went with "Orange" instead of brown. Either way, it's a pointless town, team, color and subject of my response.

I'm OUT!

!!!!!!!!!!!!! GEAUX SAINTS GEAUX !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd say in no particular order:

Notre Dame (football)
Michigan (football)
Colts
Bears
Cubs
Detroit Tigers
Celtics
Giants (Baseball)
Braves
Alabama (football)

The colts uniforms are boring. Saints have the best uniforms, oakland, then Dallas. if you notice, the more symetric logos on the uniforms are, the better they look. IE how awful are the panthers unforms. LSU's uniforms are awesome too. I wonder if I'm being a homer, but i like the Lakers uniforms as well.
