Anyone else hate their ugly gold-colored road unis? It think there's something wrong with my TV everytime they're on. Looks like dirt stains that won't come out. :rolleyes:

Not sure which ones you mean, but if they're the camo ones then I agree.

I agree. They are pretty hideous.

That color is called "sand", I think. I kinda like them. This color and the Padres new logo (see below) just kinda say "San Diego" to me, although they really don't have anything to do with priests. It probably wouldn't work anywhere else, though.

The Padres have a history with using shades of tan instead of the traditional gray for their road uniforms. They entered the league with these in 1969, which are my favorite Padres uniforms of all:

And if you hate their current model, take a look at these from 1972 and 1973:

Oh, and here's the logo I was referring to:

I think their official color is "sand"...but I'm not 100% sure. I don't mind them too much...it's kinda nice to see something other than the standard grey road uni. I'm a little surprised we haven't seen the return of the old powder blue road unis for some teams.

Yeah, I don't mind the "sand" ones, it's a nice change of pace I think from the usual uni's other teams always trot out. The camo ones that they wear as alternates(I think) are ugly though

The Giants' unifiorms are "dirty" colored as well. Hate 'em.
