Time for the Cowboys to enter the 21st century and wear their colored jerseys at home.

 

Why? So far the 21st century has been a pretty dismal time for uniforms. Imo there's something to be said for sticking to one's roots.

Isn't that the truth!

And we will continue the tradition of wearing 36 different shades blue in our "home" uniforms!

What they need to do is change the white uniforms so that they match the navy ones. That's the only thing they need to do. Period.

I'd flip the last two (I'm a '90s kid), but I'd throw about five more greater-thans between the first and second pics. The shade of blue, the striping, the matching silver - that Staubach set is perfect. Rather than wearing the crappy navy jerseys and deviating from their traditional, iconic look, they should bring back the dark royal blue jersey which matches their whites and then pick a (bluish) silver, too.

 

It's not just that the navy jersey is bad on its own (and it sure is), but the Dallas Cowboys have always worn royal blue, other than 1-2 times per year on the road the last 35 years. It's stupid that they think they need to go dark and sell navy crap, much less wear navy jerseys. It's not 2000 anymore, and teams are showing that people are not resistant to wearing vibrant colors.

Can we compromise on a dark royal, perhaps more cyan than indigo, say something around hex #0B3054?

The only iconic baseball uniform is the Yankees. the rest are just a blur of whites and grays. Baseball uniforms, up until 10-15 years ago, have been extremely bland and lifeless. Once baseball got with the :censored:ing times and actually allowed teams to use COLORS in their uniforms, it got a lot better. 

 

Totally disagree.  The Dodgers and Cardinals are definitely iconic.  There's teams all over the world that copy those designs, and everyone (at least in the states) instantly knows what team they're ripping off.  The animal-on-bat design has been used over and over and over again, and in every case it evokes thoughts of the Cardinals, even if it's beavers on a bat.

I'd prefer if more teams wore white at home.

 

As a Titans fan, I would love to see them wear white year round at home. I hate the monochrome navy.

In all fairness to anyone blaming the 90's for the Cowboys' blue jerseys being navy, didn't it change to navy in the early 80's

They almost never wear their best possible home combo: columbia blue over white. Honestly, I'd like to see the Titans do a redesign centered around the columbia blue-over-white look.

I can never decide if I prefer the Titans in light or navy blue over white.

But I do know that they should only wear white pants at home.

Navy over white is the best Titans look in my book... the way that uniform was designed, the light blue is a super-effective secondary color. Dark blue acting as a secondary doesn't give the jersey the same balance

If they reverse the pants stripe then the light blue would look better. 

 

IMP the jersey color should be the outer color on pants stripes.

I'm generally of the opinion that the striping pattern should use the lighter color in the center regardless of the jersey's color.

Correct. The 1980 NFCCG at Philly was the last time Dallas wore royal blue jerseys.

That one would get slotted before the Romo version, but still well behind the Staubach one.

 

Navy still sucks.
