Why does several NFL teams choose not to wear their logo on team jersey?

Simply does not understand this practice, a team like the Raiders or Redskins with their great logos, elect to wear a jersey without a logo. Surely it only adds to the looks of a jersey if the logo is displayed on the sleeves, like the Patriots have.

That Raiders jersey and many others are nothing but a plain jersey with huge numbers everywhere, and then a little NFL shield, not something many fans would pay a fortune for, if we are talking authentic jerseys here. A fully embroidered logo would surely get more fans to buy a jersey, and it would look alot nicer on the field.

Anyone know why some teams do have a logo on their jersey and others elect not to ?

Personal preference I guess. They just didn't want it on their jerseys.

And for some reason I read this title as an old Southern gentleman.

Tradition.

Very few NFL teams had logos on their jerseys before the 1990s. Logo-less jerseys are seen as traditional. Some teams favor "traditional" looks.

Jerseys look fine without (or with) logos - you already have (in 31 of 32 instances) a logo on the helmet, and many teams also have logos on their pants. Not everything has to have a logo.

Yeah, i know about the helmet part, but fans never wear a helmet, and without logos on a jersey it´s fairly hard to tell which team jersey you are wearing, without the NFL shield it could be any random college jersey, i feel you are not repping your team enough without that logo.

Imagine how few MLB and NHL jerseys there would be sold if team logos were removed from them !

This is a silly argument.

The focal point on the front of a baseball jersey is the script or logo, the focal point on the front of a hockey jersey is the crest. They (usually) don't have GIANT NUMBERS on the front of them. The focal point on the front of a football jersey is the number.

Raiders, Redskins, Chiefs, Packers, etc. don't need a logo on the jersey to accurately convey the fact that it's that team's jersey.

Well, you shouldn't be wearing a jersey if you're not at the game (or at all as a grown man), but that's an argument (or two) for another day.

What is wrong with wearing a jersey on a normal day?

Yeah, um, you know what I think about GQ and other stuff that caters to East Coast d-bags with marketing and business degrees and not a lick of wisdom or common sense? *fires up shredder*

Seriously though, "fashion police" is something only the 1% can afford to worry about.

Completely disagree, but that's an argument (or two) for another day.

I think it's partly to kill redundancy. Save a few teams, every team has their logo on their helmet twice. Do they really need two more of the same logo on the sleeves? That's why I like teams who use their secondary logo on the sleeves.

I prefer jerseys with no logos and no wordmarks.. If you want them, secondary or partial logos are fine, and tiny wordmarks are ok.. I understand the marketing/fanbase side of the argument, but I also feel like the uniform as a whole should make the overall aesthetic statement, rather than each item being able to "stand alone" as the team's visual identifier.. I think a good example of this is the Giants' uniforms.. The color balance is actually fantastic imo.. Sure, they could do some other things that I would also like, but their current sets are great (not a giants fan, just like their look).. They're the epitome of classic, traditional, football aesthetics, just like the raiders, chiefs, packers, and 49ers

Why? If it's on the helmet, then why do you need it on the jersey? If you're using it as a stripe such as the Seahawks of the 80's I can understand it, but most times it's just overkill. Most people don't need a logo to tell what NFL jersey a person is wearing, they know.

Do you even know who you're talking to?!
