  1. And that's the problem, and why we wind up with dumpster fires like these new Falcons uniforms. Players shouldn't have any say in the uniform, especially considering the average career is only 4 years, and most players wind up playing for more than one team during their career. It's the FANS who should have input, and it's quite clear that the new/old Buccaneers and Browns uniforms came about because they listened to the fans and undid their ridiculous player-sanctioned uniforms. I suspect we'll see the same with the Falcons and Rams in 2025. What is it with players wanting to be dressed head to toe in one color? There's nothing unique about it if everybody is doing it, and if anything it is bad for branding. Maybe that's why the Yankees haven't changed anything since 1927...
  2. You mean the Rams had a process??!? They could've fooled me...
  3. The Patriots had new uniforms in 1993, 1994, and 1995. I'm guessing this was before the NFL put in its 5-year rule on uniform changes. It's not a good sign that teams like the Browns and Jaguars have consistently made changes every 5-6 years since then. I'm waiting for the new Rams and Falcons uniforms in 2025, personally...
  4. Right now it's still just a rumor, but supposedly they are going to vote on it for the 2021 season. I hope it passes, since there's never been any conclusive evidence that wearing more than one helmet in a season leads to more concussions...I think this was just a CYA move on the NFL's part, and many people have moved on past the CTE issue. Colleges and high schools wear more than one helmet in a year, and NFL players who break theirs are allowed a new one, so the rule never made much sense. I'm hoping they rescind the rule, which would allow our favorite throwback uniforms on the field once again: 76-96 Buccaneers 60s-90s Patriots 66-70 Falcons 60-63 Cowboys 68-96 Broncos 54-55 Colts 65-77 Jets 74-96 Eagles 63 Steelers 74-87 Chargers 62-63 49ers 76-01 Seahawks 99-17 Titans / 75-98 Oilers 65-69 Redskins
  5. Why not just ditch the white entirely, and go with a sandy brown/khaki color since they're in the desert? Bring back the 1990-95 style uniforms with khaki, and fix the red jerseys so they match the white ones (black borders around ##s, logo/flag on sleeve, TV numbers on shoulders.)
  6. Just replace the word "Christmas" in this cartoon with "LA Chargers Uniform Unveiling"
  7. That's because they never bothered to ask anyone, other than 15or 20 Gen-Z Twitter posters. Sounds like Arthur Blank saying the Falcons rebrand was because they "listened to their fans"...if that's true, Blank must not really like the fans. Wouldn't surprise me if Johnson is one of those non-uni guys who never even noticed that the Browns had orange pants before.
  8. Based on the underwhelming response to the Falcons new unis, it sounds like the Rams are really going to screw this up. I'm guessing they are going mono-blue like the Seahawks and mono-white for road games, and ditching the yellow pants entirely.
  9. With the Browns now basically going the 'updated throwback' route, that marks the 7th time since 2009 a team has ditched new threads to basically do the same. It also follows a trend of Nike-fied looks not lasting very long: 2009 49ers (previous look lasted 13 years, wasn't Nike) 2011 Bills (previous look lasted 9 years, wasn't Nike) 2013 Vikings (previous look lasted 7 years, wasn't Nike) 2018 Jaguars (previous look lasted 5 years) 2019 Jets (previous look lasted 21 years, wasn't Nike) 2020 Buccaneers (previous look lasted 6 years) 2020 Falcons (previous look lasted 17 years, wasn't Nike) 2020 Browns (previous look lasted 5 years) Doesn't say much about Nike's rebranding efforts, does it? It's likely in 2025 I can add the Falcons to this list after they "listen to the fans" and go back their 80s or 90s look.
  10. The Falcons COULD add silver pants relatively easily...after all, the NFL doesn't require the 5-year process for pants. The Saints white pants from last year and the Ravens one-game gold pants from 2015 come to mind.
  11. That's actually the way it should be. As it stands now, it looks ridiculous for one team to be wearing a throwback and another team using their regular uniforms.
  12. It's about time, since the NFL never really provided any kind of evidence that using more than one helmet led to more concussions...it was purely a CYA move on their part. So long as it allows these teams to use proper throwbacks from now on, I'm all for it: Patriots (white) Jets (white) Steelers (yellow...er, I mean athletic gold) Colts (blue) Titans (white) Broncos (light blue or orange) Chargers (navy blue) Cowboys (white) Eagles (green) Redskins (dark maroon) Buccaneers (white) Falcons (red...or black if they go red with new design) Seahawks (silver)
  13. Thank you for that. I wish everyone in the world would adopt this as their personal worldview...maybe there'd be a lot less rancor and disharmony in society.
  14. Who wants to start the countdown to the Rams 2025 uniform change?
