5 Pro Sports Teams That Desperately Need A Rebrand CBS Detroit
OK, most people love their team colors because there some teamswhose image is in dire need of a refresh.
Some teams get it right. Every year, a number of franchisesacross the NBA, NHL, MLB and NFLchange their look usually one or two in each league whether it to something completely new or an awesome throwback.
This year, the Sacramento Kings and the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Pittsburgh Penguins opted to pay homage to their roots and came up with retro designs that still look great in the 21st Century.
(Though we don like the Penguins here in Detroit, lets give them credit for ditching the tan (more on that later) and going back to a bright yellow.)
Despite that constant state of change in professional sports, there still some franchises that need a major makeover. Here five that should go back to the drawing board immediately:

The Clippers just changed their look a couple of seasons ago and many people wish they didn the team was trying to get out of the shadow of former owner Donald Sterling bycompletely rebranding itself, but this was the best they came up with?
This was supposed to look clean and modern, but it just didn work.
The Magic look like they don know what decade they want to play in.
The logo looks old and outdated, as it isn too much of a change from their 90s logo, but the font looks nice and updated.
Now lets look at those jerseys. Pinstripes belong in baseball, end of story. As for the grey, sleeved jerseys they look like pajamas (insert joke about the 35 win Magic sleeping on the court HERE ___).(Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)
The Coyotes went through a mini rebrand a couple of seasons ago, no longer representing just Phoenix but all of Arizona.
The team had a crazy looking animal as its logo when it was created in the 90s and updated in 2003, but has been running withthat wolf head on the front of its jerseys ever since.
Many think that the team will ultimately move to another city, citing all of the problems with its ownership. Wouldn it benice to see this designin the league again:

Teams are starting to figure out that tan (or gold as they try to call it) should not be used in the color scheme of any professional sports team.
The Penguins fixed it this past postseason, wearing their throwback yellow and black sweaters en route to a Stanley Cup title. Also, the now Los Angeles Rams have talked about rebranding to the old yellow and blue scheme that the original franchise had.
Get on board, Brewers. They showed us just how good their uniforms could be on Friday (and that logo is one of the best that isn being used!).

The Marlins tried to do too much here. It looks like a box of multi colored highlighters threw up ona jersey. The modern look of the font and tiny swooshing fish logo are just fine, but there just so many colors.
