NFL Changes 2015

Recommended Posts

Owners can drop hints or confirmations early if they want. But don't forget that we didn't know the Bucs were begging new uniforms until Sapp tweeted out his teaser, which was about twenty minutes before the reveal.

And I'm not sure that the Packers or Niners have publicly announced that they'll have new alts next season.

So I don't know where you got "November" from, but it's wrong. The Rams could possibly announce today that they're changing for next season, or they could wait until a year from now and tell us when they're ready to show us.

In their case, I'm expecting a relocation announcement to come next February; a uniform announcement would likely come at the same time so the new color scheme can be prominently featured on all the LA Rams merchandise that will is instantly be for sale.

I would have got Nov. as the submission date to the NFL from here. Anything having to do w/ new unis I get from here. I know I read it here somewhere. You guys know the Packers and Niners getting new alts this year would be considered good enough for me to green light or red light any jersey purchase.

First thing I thought it that those unis could be a sneak peak of sorts at what the Browns will wear.

New template was the first thing I noticed as well. Looks like more mesh...similar to the old Reebok cuts. I wonder if the NFL told them to fix the sweatbox issue.

They're the mach speed template that college teams have Been using as of late.

It should be noted that those templates make the sleeves issue even worse, as the sleeve seam was pushed even further back from the front of the arm cuff. Looks like Nike is trying to out-stripe Adidas.

Look in the shadow created by the head of the white Jersey model. See the grooves next to the collar? What the heck is that? Doesn't look like anything I've seen from the newer templates.

Almost all of the NFL logos (shield, Preseason, Training Camp, Draft, Kickoff, Thanksgiving, Salute to Service, Breast Cancer Awareness, Minicamp) are getting special 3-D/gradient/Gold treatments for this season.

So the NFL is kinda helping us along in thinking it did not exist pre-Super Bowl.

Not quite. There is not "vent" or mesh area on the chest and the collar comes down to a point rather than stopping at the collarbone.

Closer look, there is a golden tread pattern on both the uniforms...

That's what I was talking about in my last post. I think this is a new template/material and that this is Nike's version of Adidas's tire tread

This definitely looks like a whole new template for the NFL uniforms and it's doesn't appear to be a direct copy of the Mach Speed college template. Main differences on the jersey seem to be the shoulder yoke and cap are in different places and there doesn't appear to be the mesh ventilation tusk near the armpit. The pants are also different in that they don't appear to have as many panels near the waist and knee areas.

Right on. What a sour way to look at the game. Shame on you, NFL!

The Super Bowl really changed everything for the NFL, so that's why the 50th game is so important. The popularity of the league in overtaking baseball coincided with this event, and I don't think the pre Super Bowl era is being ignored. NFL Films did not exist before 1960, so that plays a role in terms of exposure for that era. Before the Super Bowl, teams were either awarded as champions by winning a lone division of teams, or later, the east or west champion was given home field advantage for the title game. The Super Bowl just took the title game and sport to a different level, so it's fair to say the SB titles are slightly more valuable than what happened before.

So is this the official logo for the 2015 season?

The SB was the catalyst for the merger which was the most significant boost to the NFL's popularity. You had all the best talent and teams consolidated into a single league brand and showcasing that product on national tv sealed the deal.

I don't think the nfl is abandoning the pre-sb history as much as modern brand marketing dictates that you turn everything into a marketable event. If that means creating nonsensical anniversaries to gain more media attention and push merchadise, that's all good. Should we actually expect the shield to wait for nfl 100 when they can celebrate a meaningless anniversary now?
