Ninh explains The Top 10 Worst Sports Jerseys
… ever made. Sports merchandise is big business. But sometimes,
you have to wonder if these manufacturers or marketing departments are all on crack,
because there’s just no way that normal people would come out with designs like these.

10. Anything new made by the NBA. For some reason, the NBA has a penchant for
making their teams wear 4 or 5 different uniforms per season. To add to that, they’ve released
their ‘earned jerseys’ – supposedly to reward teams that made the playoffs last
year, but we all know the real reason why. And whilst I don’t have a problem with teams
trying to make some money, they’re all badly designed. The Miami Heat generally look like
this … so let’s make them play in these. Cleveland’s colours are Wine and Gold, I
know, let’s make them play in Navy and Sky instead. Apart from possibly Houston and Boston,
the rest are all awful. 9. 90’s goalkeeper kits.
If you’re a football fan that’s born before 1990, you might actually remember these. This
was the era of loud goalkeeper kits. Goalkeepers in football have to have a different jersey
to the rest of the players, but how much LSD did they take before they designed these?
The scientific reason behind all this is to wear the busy patterns to confuse or distract
the opposing striker, but all they did is make everyone laugh at them. And every team
followed this trend. Every single one of them. 8. The New York Islanders.
The Islanders have the iconic look of a winning ice hockey team. So the best thing to do is
not mess with that. Stick with what works. So adding colours that aren’t part of the
colour scheme and trying to make them look bush league is probably a bad idea. Sadly,
they went with it anyway. This abomination was released onto the public, with fans instantly
calling it the worst jersey in franchise history. A few years later, they scrapped it and released
a different one, but made the same mistake. This season, they changed it again – and
they at least got the colour right, albeit it still sucks.
7. The Pittsburgh Steelers Hello Mr Roethlisburger, how would you like
to look like a bumblebee from the 50’s? Yes, I’d like that very much. That’s pretty
much how this monstrosity came about. Yes, it’s another retro jersey that has no place
being in the modern game. Who honestly thought that this was a good idea and furthermore,
who actually bought it …. oh wait, yeah …. those guys. Ohhhh…..
6. Baseball Teams in the 90’s. Baseball was also sadly affected by 90’s
design disease. Several Major League teams decided – hey, you know what – let’s
take our team logo and just plaster it across the entire jersey – who gives a damn if
it looks good or not. And to make it more unattractive, let’s put the numbers and
letters vertically and sideways so that people can’t actually read them. What were they
thinking? 5. The Colombian Women’s National Cycling
Team How do you draw attention to your countries
best female cyclists? Make them wear this. Yep, you’re seeing correctly. Partially
nude coloured uniforms. From the side, it doesn’t look too bad, but from the front
– it’s definitely suggestive and doesn’t leave much to the imagination. They became
world famous just for wearing these, so I suppose it kind of worked?
4. Stade Francais. That famous French rugby team – you know,
the one with the pink badge and the lightning bolts on their logo. No? Still don’t know
who they are? You will now, because these are the guys that wear this. Pink. Lots and
lots of pink. Somewhere in every Stade Francais jersey are pink lightning bolts and every
iteration of their kit, makes their manly rugby players look extremely soft. Every one
of their jerseys is very bad and very pink, and sadly, this is a trend that isn’t going
away anytime soon. 3. Deportivo Palencia.
Muscle fit clothing is becoming really popular these days. But how about actual muscles on
clothing? Oh no. These belong to Deportivo Palencia – and it’s not just the jerseys,
the shorts are bad too. Do these guys have some sort of sponsorship deal with Gunter
Von Hagens and his Body Worlds museum or what? And if you don’t like the realistic flesh
coloured version, you can also have the same thing in purple. Just in case you’re a weirdo
who likes purple muscles? 2. These three NHL teams.
The 90’s have stuck again, and these three teams released these three piles of garbage.
The LA Kings, who had this weird sash thing and had clearly stolen the logo of another
famous king. The Anaheim Mighty Ducks, with this cartoon thing of their mascot who’s
wearing their actual jersey – and really hard to read numbers. And the most infamous
one of all, the St Louis Blues trumpet jersey. This jersey was so bad, that the team actually
refused to wear it. They actually refused. Ironically if you can find any of these three
jerseys, they’re actually worth some considerable money now.
1. Manchester United. The most famous football team in the world have come out with some
amazing kits over the years. And more recently they’ve also come out with some of worst.
But so long as you stick to the club’s colours of red, white & black – it should be a winner.
So what the hell were they smoking, when they came up with this? Oh dear god, what have
you guys done? This is this season’s 4th kit. If you haven’t
already noticed, it’s luminous leopard print. Luminous. Leopard Print. This was inspired
by EA Sports and I think it’s officially called the digital kit, as it’s available
on computer games as a digital download. The team won’t actually wear it in real life
(thank God for that). But you can actually buy it! It’s available right now for the
princely sum of £65, so if you’re a rich person with absolutely no taste whatsoever,
this would be perfect for you. Now you might be asking me, Hey Ninh what
about Islanders Fisherman jersey? Or the Raptors cartoon dinosaur one? or the Rugby Kits where
they’re all dressed like superheroes? Well I actually like all of these … so yeah,
I probably wasn’t the best guy to describe the worst jerseys given the bad taste in clothing
that I have. But if you’ve enjoyed this video, please
be sure to like share and subscribe. And if you can think of a jersey that’s worse than
all of these, write it in the comments section below.
