The NBA is the only sports league that I closely follow, but I'm a bit of a traditionalist and think the Falcons should stick with red/black/white. Even as a casual observer, those are the colors I've associated with them the most. I don't really have an opinion on the use of silver since I'm unsure of its use in the team's uniform history, but I know that color has become the equivalent of BFBS in the NBA. A number of teams have weirdly added it despite there being no significance or relevance to their respective histories.

 

Sorry to hear that

The uniforms are already done. We can pontificate and throw ideas around...but it's fait accompli. Blank loves the popularity and success of ATL-UTD. That's why people are saying gold is a natural compliment to red and black. The falcons won't look like the saints or 49ers, because Red and black are the dominant colors with gold as an accent. Gold is a heavy feature in both of those teams. Ideally the Falcons would use as much gold as the Ravens.

Well then we'll end up with something like this and we all know it.

Why did you skip the Raven regular uniforms, for a one time, piss stained atrocity? The Ravens wore those pants for a few games, one year out of their history. Jags colors were never the problem. Any color can look bad when applied the wrong way.

I don't want gold. I know that Atlanta United looks effing great, but for me the Falcons are red/black/silver. 

 

The gold strips were short lived, a gimmick, and implemented when we didn't realize the New Orleans Saints were going to become our rivals. Now it's developed into one of the biggeset rivalries in American sports. 

 

There's no reason the Falcons should have gold in their uniform.

Especially when the Saints wear black and gold. That would make no sense to me.

They’ve used Silver since 1978. It’s been in use for 42 out of their 54 years of existence. It’s not anything new, and should be considered a traditional Falcons color by now.

Ah, I stand corrected. I was unaware that the use of silver was that common. I mostly saw white, or what I assumed was white, in my experiences.

The falcons should not add gold to their scheme. I know they had gold trim to pay homage to GT when they came into the league but it was hardly noticeable and would be too much now. Red, Black, White and I can live with a little bit of silver. Also I'm sorry but no to everyone saying they should take cues from the soccer team. A 54 year old NFL franchise in the south, the heart of football country, should not be taking its cues from a 4 year old soccer franchise.

Except the soccer franchise won a title already. Falcons aren't even close to one.

But when dealing with tradition, a 54 year old franchise should not follow a 4 year old franchise, even if that 4 year old franchise has won a title or multiple titles.

Except when the tradition isn't really that great. Falcons don't exactly have multiple championships or hall of famers. They don't even really have a consistent uniform tradition.

Cool, I guess the Maple Leafs should change their colors to red and black to match the Raptor since they haven't won a Stanley Cup in 50 years and have been an embarrassment while the Raptors had success. The Cubs should probably have added black to their color scheme in 1998 to match the Fire since they won championship their first year and the Cubs were going on a 90 year drought at that point. The falcons have half a century with their colors and have owned it pretty well for the first 40, re-establish that don't go copying a team that just popped up not even a decade ago, I don't care how successful they have been.

Yep and when everyone around  thinks red, black, and gold they think Atlanta FC, I'm sorry but no. That isn't any tradition either.

Y'all are all smoking crack if you think the falcons are adding gold to the color scheme. 1) The saints are gold. We hate the Saints. 2) ATLUTD has gold accents, so it would look like they're trying to copy little brother. 

 

It ain't happening.

Perfect way of phrasing it. A NFL team copying a MLS team just doesn't look good.

Chicago Fire was red, white and navy blue until the rebrand this year.

The only reason It would happen is because gold was in the original color scheme

Hey, some of us are deeply confused over our liking of that piss stained atrocity, thank you very much

We have some comments regarding the uniforms from a Q&A fan blog on the Falcons website, ‘Straight From the Beek.’

As far as the uniforms go – and I wish I had a dollar for every question I receive about them – I cannot give away any specific details about them or I'll get in some pretty big trouble! However … I have seen them and I can give you my reactions. Flat out, I think they are sweet looking. And I'll add this, too: When I first laid eyes on them (on a computer screen), they were not what I was expecting. And I'll add one more thing: When I finally saw them in person and actually held them (and the helmet) for the first time, I liked them even more. Loved them, actually. That's all I can say. Lips are sealed, folks.


And to whether the changes would include a new logo:

I can't say, Jim. You'll have to wait and found out in April.


This makes me a little nervous as a fan. Blank’s comments suggested that they had heard fans asking for new uniforms time and time again (and more often than not, the comments were saying the throwbacks should be permanent). That suggests that they’d go with a familiar look. But the comments from the blog (“they were not what I was expecting”) suggest it could be something different entirely.
