Well there’s 4 New York teams that have its flags colors which many people wear so.....

 

Not to beat a dead horse, but wearing colors inspired from the flag and wearing the flag are two very different things.

Over on Jets Reddit someone has claimed to see them, described the following. Obviously this is a random Reddit account but they way he describes the names of the colors reads like it's from a press release.

 

"It’s a bold “NY”. The whole set is way more representative of New York City than it is the Jets branding, and I actually really like that. The black set is even a love letter to the “City that never sleeps”. The new colors are “Big Apple Green”, “Jet Black”, and “LimeLight”. It’s definitely different, it’s striking, it’s not like anything in the NFL, and to me looks like a team tired of playing second fiddle ready to, well, embrace the limelight. 

The numbers are probably my favorite part. Absolutely massive."

 

I asked him where did he get the names of the colors

 

"The press release. “Big Apple Green” is a deep shade of green that is rich but still appears to glow, “Jet Black” is exactly what it sounds like, and “Limelieght” is a bright neon green with an almost yellowish tinge to it."

 

Edit: I hope it's not true, sounds like there going heavy black and ignoring the white.

 

 

This sounds like BS. Especially since it came from Reddit. I remember last year around this time an "insider" "hacked" into Nike's site and described the Titans uniforms. Ended up being extremely wrong. This smells similar.

Exactly what I thought. Last year it was silver helmets and red jerseys for Tenn.

To be fair, giant numbers have been around in the past. Most schools in the late 80s and throughout the 90s had giant numbers.

To be fair those look fairly normal due to how big and bulky the pads were and loose fitting the jerseys were. When compared with today’s skin tight jerseys and small pads the big numbers stick out like sore thumbs

The Jets themselves even had giant numbers at one point:

They still look bad back then the pads barely help

When I hear about the "Big Apple Green" with "Jet Black" and "Limelight Green", and see the colour scheme of the Jets' graphics on their website, can't help but think they might be going with a colour scheme similar to ill-fated third uniform the Saskatchewan Roughriders wore for a short period of time.

Honestly, not a horrid colour scheme, just poorly executed. Unsure if that's an unpopular opinion though.... but as others have pointed, the Irish Rainbow set of the Bucks qualifies. If the black is minimalistic save for the alt, it could work for the Jets IMO.... just trying to think optimistically.

I want to say this is B.S. but this totally sounds like something Nike would do.

Let's not forget about the new cheerleader uniforms:

Based on those, the reddit guy might be pretty accurate.

 

 

This is going to be bad, guys. Really, really bad.

Or, the reddit person was blowing hot air and only describing the cheerleader uniforms and pretending he had insider knowledge.

I’m the one who brought up big Oregon numbers months ago in this forum. Maybe they got the info from here and changed the narrative.

Very possible, but the cheerleaders changing their uniforms so drastically during a rebrand greatly increases the odds of the team using that color scheme as well.

If dark green and lime green were the colors, and not kelly green, it seems bizarre that only a Reddit guy would know that and not any of the real journalists who have reported details about these uniforms. That leads me to believe this is yet another case of a Redditor connecting some dots (cheerleaders, etc.) and taking a wild stab.

From what we've heard, the new green is darker than Kelly, but lighter than the current green. The green on the cheerleader uniforms fits that description. Sure, it's very possible the redditor is full of crap, but the cheerleader uniforms are the best piece of evidence we have so far, so we can't just ignore them.

On second thought, let’s.  What an embarrassment. 

 

There’s free porn on the internet now, boys. No need for strippers on the sidelines.

It's similar to common workout gear for women, there's nothing wrong with it. No need to call them strippers.

Maybe I'm blind to lengths people might go to for attention, but that seems like an awful lot of work.
