  1. I think that's going to be it. There's pretty prevalent rumors on reddit that the numbers will be yellow, and the pants will be gray. That would make the purple, as Chad Greenway said, "Pop" I know it would piss alot of people off on here, but I'm really expecting the uniforms to look about like this (with wider shoulder stripes and a subliminated chain mail pattern on the helmet)
  2. Bruh, calm down ain't nothing happening right now. If there were more clues or a leak and people were going off on tangents, then ya I'd undeerstand, but ain't happening. Here's your pic btw: I don't think you should read too much into it. The Vikings have this under lock and seal, no way they'd carelessly leak the new font in a photo like this. I DO, however, think the font will be very similar to what we saw at the end of that video from the clues site.
  3. It's a dude with a whopping 19 followers. Probably a troll seeking attention
  4. I highly doubt that their inclusion makes fans buy them. Now, I'm fine with personalization of jerseys in an obscure area for those on field, and I'm even ok with those kinds of messages on 'one-offs' to be auctioned and hung. But otherwise, I think they just trot into the absurd. Well, my point was that, while it might not make someone buy a jersey who otherwise wouldn't, it might make someone decide to go with a more expensive model. Maybe. By the way... "Keep Pounding" always makes me laugh. Kind of a Bevis and Butthead laugh. FWIW the story behind "Keep Pounding" and Sam Mills is damn emotional. That's the kind of thing I actually like to see embroidered on the inside of the collars. Seattle's 12 is a shout out to the fans but not really necessary, and the one on the inside of the Redskins uniform is pretty stupid honestly. But the Panthers one is pretty special, IMO. The Sam Mills story is one that, for me, pushes the line of "I hate it" and "I'm in love with it." Individually, I think it's great, and I'd applaud a player doing such a memorial. I'm even cool with a team using that. But, I don't like the idea of it being a marketable feature. Anything that could be perceived to exploit a tragedy in the name of money making is not ok with me. It's not like they cost more money than other jerseys, and even the replicas have it in the collar. I see this as a genuine tribute, nothing whatsoever to do with marketing I see it as marketing, personally. Yes, "even the replicas have it." The replicas, however, choose not to have a cut that mimics the on-field product, use different numbering/lettering methods, and often take some liberty with the design itself in order for it to make sense on the replica cut. Keeping that slogan/saying/whatever, IMO, is a clear selling point. On fan gear, I don't see it as any different than Adidas's use of Ware's injury to make money. Might it have some good intent somewhere? Sure, but it's absolutely using that negative event to make a buck. Long rant short, what happened to corporate responsibility? So, what you're saying is that there is no way Nike could win on this one... if they include it in the replicas, it's still just "a clear selling point" and if they only had it on the authentics then it would still just be another reason the authentics are better... Besides, what company in their right minds would do anything to make a cheaper version of a product more appealing than a version that would net a larger profit?

  7. Guessing you don't root for them Not sure why that matters. Because if you do, you tend to see your teams main home jersey color as their main color. Exactly. And FWIW, when the Lakers wear white on Sundays, it features far more gold than purple
  8. Guessing you don't root for them Not sure why that matters. Ha, I just said it because he said yellow instead of gold.
  9. they dont wear a colored jersey at home, so no i wouldnt say its the same Of course you wouldn't. Because it blows up your point. It would interesting to ask people, just off the top of their heads, what is the Lakers' primary color. I'd bet purple edges out yellow. The Lakers will always be GOLD then purple in my eyes
