  1. Maybe the 49ers were trying to create an "alternate Color Rush." (Which just means shoehorning black into a uniform in any way possible. It's the ongoing 'Any Given Sunday-ization' of the NFL...the uniforms in that movie were amateurish at best, but NFL players seems to think all-black unis are "dope" and "sick") (By the way, that 49ers BFBS uniform is one of the worst in history, bar none. The fact that this uniform was even approved by the NFL shows how poor their quality control has become over the years. The jersey ##s were unreadable, especially during night games. Same thing happened with the Browns jerseys from 2015...WTF is going on at NFL HQ?
  2. Someone should run the numbers: how much $$ would the NFL make if they allowed teams to wear proper throwbacks? This could then be compared to how much $$ the NFL expects to pay out in concussion settlements over the next 50 years or so. I hate to say it, but I think the concussion settlements are going to cost WAY more than any $$ they get from selling throwbacks. Not that I agree with this...I think the 1-helmet rules is based on dubious reasoning and is basically a CYA maneuver by the NFL. If they can put a man on the moon, why can't they designe a throwback shell/wrapping for NFL helmets? Yes, I'll stop yelling at the cloud now...
  3. "It's not your ball team or our ball team, it's my family's ball team. I paid for it and worked for it." - Colts owner Robert Irsay, April 2nd, 1984.
  4. Never underestimate the pettiness of billionaires. I would imagine if the Texans tried something like this it would be in court for over a year...all over laundry.
  5. It's just a CYA effort by that clown Goodell. I'd love to see the 'research' that the NFL is using to justify this, considering that colleges don't seem to be concerned about it at all. Maybe some team should just pull a 'Tucker McElroy' and just wear another helmet anyway. It worked for the Rams unis, and now we're on a slippery slope: "Well, suppose we leave our midnight green helmets in the locker room and go out there wearin' our kelly green 1974-95 helmets anyway? Whatcha gonna do about that? You gonna stop us? Goodell? You're gonna look pretty funny tryin' to eat corn on the cob with no (censored) teeth."
  6. Sadly, that's what happens when you design uniforms for the players (and not the fans), who invariably trumpet that the new unis are "dope", "sick", or "flamin'".
  7. The Winnipeg Jets don't have that problem, and they use the outline of an F-18 or F-16 as their logo. Their old 70s logo, however, was clearly a commercial jet:
  8. IIRC: in 2013 the Jags players were quoted as saying their new uniforms were "dope" and "sick." in 2014 the Bucs players were quoted as saying their new uniforms were "dope" and "sick." in 2002 the Bills players were quoted as saying their new uniforms were "dope" and "sick." in 2015 the Browns players were quoted as saying their new uniforms were "dope" and "sick." in 2006 the Vikings players were quoted as saying their new uniforms were "dope" and "sick." in 2014 the 49ers players were quoted as saying their new Color Rush uniforms were "dope" and "sick." Players having taste? Don't bet on it...
  9. It looks like something the USFL would use for their 2082 season...
  10. Don't get me started...okay, too late: Arlington Cowboys Carson Chargers Landover Redskins Foxborough Patriots East Rutherford Giants/Jets Orchard Park Bills Glendale Cardinals Bloomington Vikings (oops)
  11. It's probably the same 40 or 50 meatheads who vote every week. It saddens me to see the ongoing Any Given Sundayization of the NFL.
  12. It's not true that coaches have no input on uniforms. For example, Bill Parcells overhauled the Patriots uniforms in 1993, and had the Jets go to their modified throwbacks in 1998. Not saying he designed them, but he was the catalyst for the change in both cases. Joe Gibbs had the Redskins wear white at home starting in 1981 because it was what he preferred. When Ol' Man Gibbs came back in 2004, he let the players have input and we wound up with that atrocious white-on-white uniform more often than not. Some coaches probably could care less about the unis, or let the players/fans decide what the team wears...I'm looking at you, Sean Payton.
  13. If the Chargers and Colts win, the Chargers should just pull a Tucker McElroy (Blues Brothers) like the Rams did earlier this year: "Well, suppose we leave our blue and gold St Louis jerseys in the locker room and go out there wearin' our 1973-99 uniforms anyway? Whatcha gonna do about that? You gonna stop us? Goodell? You're gonna look pretty funny tryin' to eat corn on the cob with no (censored) teeth."
