ESPN ranks the Maple Leafs jersey #23 among the four major sports

ESPN just did another one of those rankings and for once the Maple Leafs didn't finish last at #122. Among all the four major sports the Leafs jersey finished at #23.

If you like stripes -- especially striped socks -- then you're gonna like the Leafs. If you don't like stripes, well, the Leafs probably aren't for you. But if you don't like stripes, why are you reading Uni Watch to begin with? Another case of an Original Six team that totally gets it.

Also something that I noticed we've got to be the one of the only sports teams in North America that doesn't even use it's best logo.





Cause that's top 5, Even on a Farber influenced list.

This list is based on thin air and is 100% subjective, obviously. Doubt they used any criteria.

Blackhawks need to be much higher. Personally, it's right there at the top in regards to jerseys/logos.

You forgot the Maple Leafs don't even use that logo anymore for their alternate jersey. Remember they now use this one.

Yet another bullsh** article from ESPN...

Why don't they just stick to what they know, whatever that may be.

Right on. Personally, I believe the Blackhawks have the best logo out of any major North American sports team, and the Bears, I'm not quite sure why they're at #2.

Surprised the Flames weren't higher, dude seems to like C shape logos.
My list would be very different... Of the top of my head:

1. Philly Flyers
2. Boston Red Sox
3. Toronto Maple Leafs
4. New York Giants
5. Chicago Bears

Indeed and while maybe not best overall uniform, Minnesota Wild have one of the best logos of any sport.

Bears at 2, Steelers at 7, and Blackhawks at 49 is all you need to know this list is garbage.

I get that it's uniforms and not merely logos, but come on.

The LEafs should be #1 on any Logo, Uni list because we're the only pro team with a spelling error in our name.

There is no such thing as Leafs. You have A LEaf and then you have LEAVES.

We're special. IN both meaings of the word.

I'd flip them, but otherwise I agree on the top two.

There is no spelling error. The team is believed to be named after the Maple Leaf regiment in World War I. Thus, it is considered a proper noun.

For example: The last name "Wolf."

If you were to refer to a family with that last name, you would not refer to them as "Wolves" but rather "Wolfs." The same principle applies in the Leafs case.

These lists are so subjective. What is beautiful to one might just be OK to another.

I think we can all agree that the Blackhawks should have been higher up.

Even the most die-hard Original 6 teams fans would probably admit that there is no jersey better than the red Blackhawks sweater.

Dude it is a Trivial Pursuit question.

Leafs is a spelling error. Regardless of believe, LEAFS is not a proper English word.

Ok, lets try again. For example lets take football player Ryan Leaf. If you met his family you would not call them the Leaves. You would correctly call them the Leafs.

The same goes for the Toronto Maple Leafs. You are not talking about them as they were Leaves as they are not named after them. The Maple Leaf Regiment is a proper noun, and therefore it is correct in calling them the Toronto Maple Leafs as they are named after a unit of people.

Maple Leafs is very much correct, no matter what trivial pursuit tells you.
