NFL 2020 Changes

I've been a Chiefs fan since Montana went there in '93.  And I love the vintage feel of a Grey facemask on the right team.

 

The Chiefs, as they are now, are not that team.  It just doesn't look right to me.

 

When it DID look right, it was with their Dallas Texans throwback uniforms about 10 years ago.  Ironically, Mike Vrabel wore them.

 

The Grey facemask just worked better with the simple Dallas Texans logo, no sleeve stripes, TV numbers on sleeve, minimized Gold number trim, and most importantly, Black footwear & gloves.  For some reason, the even more simplified uniform & logo, coupled with the Black cleats & gloves, just made it feel more cohesive, and more of a call back to that vintage era. 

 

On their current uniforms now, it looks like they forgot to attach White facemasks and the only other option was Grey.

Side note:  these photos sure make me appreciate the current Nike jersey even more.

These photos make me miss reebok even more.

In all seriousness though, the Chiefs switching to a matte helmet wouldn’t be some life altering change I’d have trouble coping with.

So will there be any NFL team that rips off their design from a CFL team as the Jets did last year?

 

Which team did they rip off?

"Same Colors As" =/= "Rip Off"

 

Let's talk about when Saskatchewan ripped off the Eagles in the ~90s!

I'll confess, these are so stripped down compared to the Eagles' previous stripe-happy Jaworski unis that when I first saw them (in a preseason game), I thought they were practice jerseys!

To be fair about one point - the Philadelphia Eagles started wearing these pants with black trim in 1985.  NFL season starts in September.

The Roughriders adopted the silver and black trim in 1985 and started wearing this same pant design in 1985.  1985 CFL season started in July.

 

So really, the Saskatchewan Roughriders wore this exact pant design before the Eagles did.

And to be ultra fair...I’m sure the Eagles had no clue and it’s just a sign of the times. Those Eagles pants were probably preordered at the same time the Roughriders placed their order.

 

my official ruling is a PUSH

Besides, this was the 80s. Branding and marketing wasn't what it is now back then. Far less egregious than the Jets aping the Roughriders' aesthetic in 2019 😛

I don't believe anything from Reddit. Not after we had a few Redditors come here and try to convince us the Broncos were going orange and and dark grey and the Cowboys were going with chrome helmets. 

Don't forget the red uniforms with battle worn silver numbers for the Titans

Wonder what would happen if someone would complain via email to the league, what would happen? Thinking it would just get deleted.

I don't even know why we bother having threads for these.

The logo is so boring and corporate. I miss city themed logos like what the NBA All Star game or WrestleMania does.

Won't argue the ruling. Wanted to point out, however, that the Riders added silver when they went to this look. Philly had been green and silver for awhile. So ...

True, not like any one's opinion really means anything!
