"Worst. Uniforms. Ever.": "Inspired" by another Florida High School's fancy uniforms, "rapper" Flo Rida contacted the same "design firm" to make new uniforms for his old stomping grounds, Miami-Carol City. Response has been "mixed".

I'm fully against using aboriginal people as a mascot (Washington, Cleveland) ...that said, those headdress helmets are pretty sharp.
The rest of the uniform is a disaster.

You don't see many uniforms that scream "look at how my crotch is festooned." That could make it tough on defensive backs who cover the team's receivers.

Now that HS teams have ultra unis, it will be interesting to see how that affects college recruiting. Will a talented kid feel he has to go to a school that maintains the style level to which he has become accustomed?
I still think that if you're gonna wear statement uniforms, you need to be damn sure your team is superior on the football field. Teams with dazzle duds don't look too good when the game doesn't go their way.
They look double foolish when they get beat by a team that looks like a "real football team". Case in point: Oregon's loss to Auburn in the 2010 title game.
Speaking of Oregon, these south Florida "designers" are total stooges for cutting and pasting the Ducks' shoulder wing feathers onto the Atlantic unis. You wanna be creative, come up with your own shit.

I'm not hating them, I've gotta say. Probably because orange is my favorite color, but they definitely grab your attention.

I don't think Oregon looks foolish at all. The uniforms are awesome and along with the rest of the Phil Knight-funded flash draw a lot of top athletes. A lot more thought went into their look than in these Florida high schools.
Oregon in 2010 just ran into the juggernaut that is the SEC.

I kind of like the helmets. The rest of the kit makes my eyes bleed....

When it comes to uniforms, nothing is uglier or more stupid looking than the ones the Steelers are wearing today.

I was just about to post the same thing. Whose bad idea was that?

No idea, but good thing they're winning. Coming out in those hideous things and losing would be embarrassing.

The Steelers have stolen every McDonalds hamburger in Pittsburgh.
Even Geelong fans are reaching for nearby empty plastic pails.
