    Monday, April 19. Date at the end of the video (which is like seven minutes btw).

     

    From the way that the white color rush is talked about, it sounds like they are loved enough to be kept around. Most teams don't keep their color rush uniforms when they go into a new uniform design.

     Usually the home team's bench is on the side of the field facing the camera.  In the field thread, it looks like that side is going to be KC's.  Maybe not every team does it that way.

     

    For most teams, the home bench is underneath the face of the logo and the visitor/away bench on top of the logo. A few teams are the reverse; the Browns, the two New York teams, the Cowboys, the Patriots, the Falcons, the Rams, and the London host teams.

     

    I'm not sure how they do it for the Super Bowl.


  3. As the title says. What are games in sports, whether professional or college, where both teams were in the first season of their uniform change or update? 

     

    Here are things that don't count

     

    - Teams playing in their inaugural season

    - Switching between two jerseys/uniforms making one the primary and the other the alternate, where the uniforms were already there in previous years

    - Items like shoes/cleats, socks, patches, and decals paying tribute to someone or something

    - Uniforms appearing for one season that didn't return again

     

    What does count

     

    - Preseason games

    - Alternate uniforms, and doesn't have to come in the same year as the primary ones

    - Changes a team made to the uniform already existing

     

    I'll start this thread off by doing one for NFL games from the present going back to the 1990s.

  4. Good points are brought up. How the Bucs have are unbeaten so far in white tops and pewter pants, and that they lost to KC in the first meeting in their red tops.

     

    Kansas City is 2-0 in red in Super Bowls, yes. But check this out. In this two year Super Bowl run, the Chiefs have lost most of their games in the red jerseys. Both of their losses this season came in red against the Raiders and Chargers. In 2019, 3 of their 4 losses were to the Colts, Texans, and Packers. KC is 13-1 in the white jerseys. Their only loss in white was to the Titans in the 2019 regular season. It might not be such a bad thing that the Bucs put KC in their red tops. Something has to give, regarding uniform records.


  5. Thanks 63. I just thought about that Jets vs Chargers game. I was off about the 2006 games between the Giants and Eagles.

     

    I looked up other games of the instances where two teams met twice during the season in the same stadium and wore different colors each time. Here are the others I found.

     

    2015: Chiefs vs Texans

    2005: Washington's former name vs Buccaneers

    2000: Rams vs Saints

    1999: Titans vs Jaguars

    1997: Lion vs Buccaneers

    1992: Bills vs Dolphins

    1985: Patriots vs Dolphins

    1981: Bills vs Bengals

    1980: Cowboys vs Eagles


  6. 5 of the 8 meetings between the Chiefs and Bucs, when the game was in Tampa, Tampa Bay was in white tops and Kansas City in red tops. Including Super Bowl 55.

     

    The regular season meeting in 2020 was the Bucs in red and Chiefs in white. Then later in the playoffs, the Super Bowl notably, it's reversed. The last time when two teams met in the same stadium twice in the same season, where the uniforms were different each time, was the Giants vs Eagles in the 2006 season. Any other instances?

    thats what makes so impressive. The Eagles are the only team in the NFL that Tom Brady couldn’t beat in Super Bowl LII. No other team can say that. 

     

    Sure you can. The Eagles aren't the only team to beat Tom Brady. The New York Giants have done it, they did it twice. If you aren't restricting the Super Bowl to "LII".

    Last year we had to listen to two weeks of complants about the fact that both teams coincidentally wore red, and weird theories/ideas about how they should avoid just wearing their uniforms.

     

    It's the Superbowl. The home team should wear their primary home uniform and they road team should wear their primary road uniform. Whoever wins needs to look like themselves while doing it.  Nothing else is as important as that.

     

    When teams go WAH we have to hear people complain about it.

    At this point I'm just hoping for any name. WFT has to go. It's ridiculous they'll be unnamed for yet another season

     

    Why are we calling them, Washington, the Football Team? The other 31 clubs are a football team too.
