This wouldn't bother me if the 83 logo/color scheme in any way whatsoever complemented the primary uniform. Red/white/blue with block lettering is just so far removed from black/white/gray with old English lettering that they may as well be different franchises. The two schemes can't exist in the same uniform family.
Look at the Brewers: They've successfully reintroduced their retro MB-glove uniform into the regular rotation because, even though the shades of yellow and blue have evolved, it's still yellow and blue
God, this organization...
