Hamilton Tigers - Obviously, no

Absolutely. Thanks for pointing that out, interesting, though why anyone would find it even remotely disparaging I have absolutely no idea whatsoever. Indeed, the history of teams "patching" their jerseys & or helmets is an interesting one.... As a side-bar to the Hamilton-NY sale & relocation; the team during transition, the sale to Big Bill Dwyer & relocation to NYC was for awhile called the New York Hamilton Tigers. By the time Training Camp had opened however, a proper name, the Americans and their fabulous jerseys designed, though anecdotally Ive read bits that suggest Dwyer was considering Tigers, same colour scheme etc.
