Any player that feels they need to "look" tough to be tough has no business playing the sport at any level. Any player that thinks wearing an ugly uniform improves their performance needs to have their head examined. The uniform choice has little to do with the players and more to with the fans and revenue.

Raiders intimidated opponents back in the 70's when they were winning regularly, because they were cheap shot artists. Not because they wore black... they intimidated teams wearing white too and white certainly doesn't scare anyone.

The Kings uniforms are and have been abismal for a long time. Trying to piggyback of the thug life mentality of a football team from the 70's and 80's is as uncreative as the poorly designed uniforms themselves.
