    Not sure if it's my tv, or peacock, or what, but the KC unis/helmets are trying to burn out my retinas they're so bright

    Real McDonald's colors. The og Rockets were a deeper red and deeper yellow. Especially noticeable on San Diego Rockets or 70s Rockets uniforms. Clearly gold. Desert gold and Rocket red. Not Ketchup and mustard. I always felt a modernized version of that could be a niners red and gold look and Cleveland did that for lebrons early years and I loved that look. They even had the blue and gold alts and we could do blue red and gold alts ourselves on top of the classic retro. Hard to imagine our classic colors having anything to do with a space theme as much as I miss them.

    As far as The "H" Texans goes...I agree with Donny the Most. The dark blue and deep red needs a thick pure white highlight to separate the red and blue otherwise it looks bland. I love the battle red helmets, just not with our red jerseys, at least not with white numbers and letters. Ive been pushing for the practice jersey look with battle red helmets for a while and those white with solid red numbers and blue with solid white simple jerseys work perfectly. Just add steel blue shoulder stripes to white home and red shoulder stripe to away blue. Tiny colored accents here and there.

    Doesn't matter. Seems were officially doing a luv ya blue rebrand from logo to uniforms.

    Remember the early 90s all star uniforms? They had thst gradient star in the middle. Those shades of reds and blues with white were perfect. Some of my favorite jerseys ever and while I hate all things Utah, those jerseys on that 92 All star court in Utah was incredibly aesthetic. They had a powder blue and purple color theme on the court.

    You own a peacock, that's awesome. I want an otter but wife wont let me. Said he/she won't match the color scheme of the house. Maybe @DonnyMost can work more neutrals in on our walls. Maybe a taupe or cinereous??

    "One of" so basically just an alternate to use once or twice a season? What about the primary home and away and logo? Ive been under the impression were doing a full rebrand. Why else get all that customer feedback about style and colors etc? For a simple alternate uni?

    I've never actually noticed it before but.... Tennessee's uniforms don't have any red in them. Their logo does (and the Nike log is red) - but unless I'm missing it, their uniforms are exclusively those two blues + gray.

    So utilizing those two blues - but making red more prominent (if not primary) may be the way they're going as a means of folding in the light blue without it looking like Titan retretads?

    Perhaps.

    The red is on the Titans official color schema, but it's basically for incidentals (like logos, trademarks, etc). I think it is basically a holdover from the Oiler days at this point, plus it's a nod to the Tennessee state flag I guess. It's a lot like the yellow used by the Ravens, it's officially a color of theirs (and also a hat tip to the state flag perhaps), but only to fill in gaps.

    I don't know how you go full on red with prominent Columbia blue and not have it look horrendous.

    You could maybe pull it off if you kept the blue as only a very sparse inclusion for highlights/accents, but generally speaking it's gonna be pretty two very loud colors fighting with each other. IMO you have to commit to either red or light blue and go with it. Trying to go with both would be a disaster.

    The helmets are too shiny. They look like my Texans Christmas ornament.

    I think the key is navy and scarlet primary with Columbia being the accent.

    gonna have to agree to disagree there lol

    I think this is a viable alternative... more of a crimson/garnett but works better IMO

    I wish someone could do a mock up of the Astros Tequila Sunrise uniforms as the Texans uni's just so I could see what in the ever loving god that would look like.
