Eagles want Kelly Green Jersey in 2020

Recommended Posts

Can they do a faux back, make it the 80s uniform but with the new blue/green color? Is that permitted?

Looks close enough to me to not be a major headache.

Maybe use a photo that was actually from an HD camera. An old washed out photo will look better than the actual kelly green that was used.

 I'm not sure why anyone would be interested in that halfway compromise.  Obviously, the Eagles have no plans for dumping their current sad emo-green and I have no interest in seeing the NFL help them with their bad choices by giving them a second helmet. 

 

Much like the San De...um, excuse me, Los Angeles Chargers, when your owner has crappy taste, you just gotta live with it, I guess.

NFL should change this rule (or at least quit trying to say it's for player safety which is a complete fallacy). Seahawks would look great in a silver helmeted throwback too. Come on NFL, at least allow 2 helmet color options.  

 

That Steve Largent/Curt Warner era Seahawk uniform was gorgeous.

Broncos, Chargers, and Giants switch out decals for Color Rush as well. Falcons and 49ers switch out decals for throwbacks. And the Rams switched between metallic gold and athletic gold too. One is an exception, two or more is a pretty standard policy. 

 

Which one of those golds is the yellow one?  It's amazing that every team in the league with a color that looks like yellow to me calls it gold.  If Green Bay's helmet isn't yellow, then what is?  I guess yellow died with Bob Ross.

What we commonly know as yellow is usually "athletic gold".

 

Metallic gold is the beige-y sparkly gold.

Athletic gold is more orange-y, it has more red in it than a true yellow.

Seems like a subtle difference, but isn’t that what these boards are all about?  😛 

 

Athletic gold is to yellow what teal is to sky blue: related, but not the same thing.

So basically what you're telling me is that there's no yellow in sports.

Sure there is.  Colleges use it, like Michigan.

 

But pro sports teams seem to prefer the richer, darker athletic gold.  Doesn’t change the facts.

Michigan has been using an oranger yellow since Harbaugh arrived (adidas’ last year).

If the eagles want to use kelly green either change the uniforms completely to kelly green or shut up and deal with the midnight green bad decision from 20 something years ago.

Michigan uses "Maize."

Yep. Yellow is no longer yellow when we want it to not be yellow. It magically changes when applied to a school bus vs., say, a pair of football pants.
