Best Match-ups, aesthetically speaking

John Facenda once said that Football is a “Two and half hour carnival of color sound and action” noting that the aesthetics of the game are a large part of the experience. As an artist I’m drawn to good matchups on the field, not only on a football level but also from an aesthetic level. Colors, shapes movement are all components of art. Bodies meshing at the line of scrimmage, twisting around each other reaching for a pass, defenders enveloping ball carriers, bodies clad in clashing and in some cases complimenting colors compel me to tune in and stay tuned in no matter what the score (kind of sounds erotic doesn’t it?) But it’s all part of the sport we love. So with that said here are some of my favorite uniform match ups please post yours and discuss.



Here I like the complimenting colors with the Maroon and dark Green without the yellow pants.



This is probably one of my favorite of all time, something about how the orange and yellow play off one another with the green thrown in there. This is also the second time in a row that the Packers have played in Cincinnati where the Bengals have worn their orange jerseys.



The lighting in the Superdome really brings out the opposing teams colors when they wear their dark colors. Here I like how the Aqua is reflected.



The Red, White and Blue with some gold, classic.



Another classic uniform match-up. This current uniform set of the Chargers is my favorite in the league, the two shades of blues and the complimenting yellow on a white pallet is modern yet classic.

Eagles - need to return to Kelly Green...this new shade is hideous.

I think the Titans have one of the ugliest designs ever. Ironic since the old Oilers were one of my favorites.


Bengals are a mess too.


My favorite matchups:

Bengals helmet is one of the best in the league but below the chinstrap hey're a mess. The stripes don't line up or match, too much random piping and striping.












It looked better here:

re: Best Match-ups, aesthetically speaking

I always liked the Bengals, Rams and Eagles helmets where they took a more creative route. Instead of slapping a logo on the side of the helmet they actually used an element of their mascot. I don't have a problem with the current Bengals uniforms other than the big white void under the arms of the jerseys, just not necessary. I also like the current Green the Eagles use, it a modern version of the classic look which is cool in my book but trying to match a paint color for use in some pieces of art I have done is impossible.

Bet we could agree this would look better:






Their design and new wings look great but that color is boring.

Get some Ford Pacific Green paint...I had a car the exact color of the Eagles helmet once.

The color:

Matching it in a Urethane or lacquer would be easy enough since they do it with computers and Home Depot used to sell NFL team color paints, but finding or mixing an acrylic artistic paint is hard, I've come close but not exact (I'm a bit of a perfectionist).

re: Best Match-ups, aesthetically speaking

Hold on...I'm way off topic. I just noticed this is a Math thread.


OK, how can math be aesthetic?

re: Best Match-ups, aesthetically speaking

I like this thread and this fringes forum. It adds depth to the overall site. Good stuff.

I still like the black and yellow of the Steelers. And it's cool having one side of the helmet blank and the other side with the logo.
