  1. For those not wanting to use "bone", just use the Pantone designation of Warm Gray....
  2. It literally was the same color at the time as Tennessee (Pantone 151), but now that they have reverted back to their old orange, I'm hoping it would look more like the Ronnie Brown pic
  3. It's a separate specified color on their logo sheet, and they do refer to it simply as silver-green:
  4. The lighting also makes the whites look really overexposed, so it might just be the optics of it.
  5. According to Gridiron Database, they wore white at home during the 1980 season. And that particular game appears to be Sept. 14, 1980
  6. Apparently the Duval chant started in the mid nineties by black youth in Jacksonville as a pride thing and then was ultimately popularized by a local radio DJ:
  7. That was weird for me as someone who grew up in that area. It was always the St. Petersburg Times. Then I moved out of the area after high school and came back to visit at some point and saw it and was like "What the hell is the Tampa Bay Times?!?". Thought it was some knock off neighborhood paper.
  8. And I agree with all that. Like I said I don't care what they wear. I may question it in my own way as being someone, like a lot of people here, who are really into the jerseys and teams and notice stuff like that, but at the end of the day I'm not criticizing them or holding it against them as a person. Like I said its just a passing thought/musing in the moment, nobody's going after them with pitchforks
  9. I wouldn't say it bothers me, like I don't get frustrated by it when I see it. Just more of a personal musing/observation, like "eh he's wearing that? Wouldn't have gone that route" then that's it I never see him again the rest of the game. You gotta remember where we're at, this place is going to go into the minutiae of jerseys whether its on the field or in the stands .
  10. He probably wouldn't make it out alive with those people if that happened And I do get the casual fan aspect, but I feel like even some legitimate fans of the sport will wear non-playing team attire. Like their fanship is going to get revoked or that they have to defend their team against fans of teams that are actually playing.
  11. I never understood that as well. Like I guess they're supporting the sport/league but it looks odd either way. For example, I know a guy who's a hardcore Bears fan, but if he goes to a local Bucs game (and they're playing someone other than the Bears) he would wear Bucs gear. He's not going to wear his Bears jersey to a game they're not playing in, so he does it right in my book. I just dont understand the people that don't follow that logic lol.
  12. I see it in a 2009 one I have for them, but it wasnt in the 2012, so maybe went away with the Nike switchover?
  13. Well they had 2 years under Nike with the old unis (2012-2013), so would presumably be the same as those. How much of a change there was in the fabric color between those and the 2014-2019 set (if any) I'm not sure of. Whether you'd be able to tell from the naked eye anyways, who knows. That's my issue with this new pewter. It worked in the 2014-2019 set since there was no black trim, so it essentially acted as a mix of the old pewter and black, kind of streamlining the color. But to use it in the old style uni set with black in the mix, it definitely becomes too dark and doesn't work as well as the old pewter.
  14. Yes they went back to the '97-'13 shade of red (Pantone 187)
