I’d be okay with a grey alternate, but only if the facemask is swapped to a matching grey (assuming the white helmet is sticking around)

The problem with having a gray alt (besides just that it sounds ugly, and in the NBA and CFB dark gray alts are getting really overplayed) is that, as I understand it, you can't make an alt out of a non-uniform color. That's why the Lions shoe-horned that muddy-gray outline on their numbers, as well as the somewhat pointless black number trim and facemask on the Jets. If the Chargers want to have an ugly gray alt, that's not good, but as has been pointed out a lot the last few days, 9 out of 10 NFL alts are bad... the real problem will be with the pointless inclusion of gray in an otherwise nice color scheme.  Hmm... gray swooshes, maybe?

 

I wonder if @TruColor would be either willing or able to shed some light on the gray business?

I don’t want a grey alternate at all, but could they feasibly make the facemask grey, put the color value on the style guide (like the Colts just did) and say “it’s a team color”? Just thinking out loud.

I gotta feeling it’s going to be a let down! Everything we’ve thought was going to be good, ended up being trash and everything we thought was going to be trash, ended up being almost perfect. The part that scares me is how well received they are amongst the players. I can only hope the emojis aren’t on the uniforms in any form or fashion.

Examples, please.

Those Chargers colors, so thick and warm, I'd love to dive in and swim in them. They can't conduct a serious inquiry into any new look without at least acknowledging this classic. But the have, for 20+ years ... always teasing with bits of a light-ER blue, but never embracing that pure powder beauty. 

 

Can't say the same for the Bills' simplecolors, crayon blue and red (that's Jack Kemp btw), but I've really been liking their Josh-Allen-era emphasis on the throwbacks ... the motion-less red buffalo somehow appeals to me.

 

 

I like the tri-configuration of that Chargers-John Hadl look too. White helmet over first color jersey over second color pants. Seems pretty rare  ... Wyoming Cowboys only one off the top of my head:

Does this really need a separate topic?

 

It doesn't. Merging with the larger LA teams thread where it's being discussed.

Maybe.  I don't know how the rules surrounding that would work.  For myself, I wouldn't like that as a justification.  I'm firmly in the "gray facemasks are equipment, and don't count for or against the color scheme" crowd.

My prediction:

 

Home: Powder Blue

Away: White

Color Rush: Grey 

Alt/Throwback: Royal Blue


If the twitter guy is telling the truth I think he mixed up his jerseys and only saw the retail thumbnails or something

Ty Long only asked the guy to message him because he hasn't seen them either...or so he says...

I’m totally with you there, I hope they wouldn’t do that either. If they’re allowed to do that though, I could see it being tried. My guess is if the Colts can add facemask grey and anvil black to their style guide, the Chargers could be allowed to do something similar.

Sure.  But I like to think the Colts only added gray (and hilariously named it "facemask gray") as a dig at the people who complain that no team should wear gray masks unless gray is in their color scheme. (That seems unlikely, though, as it would imply that the kind of thing we argue about here would matter that much to anyone else.)

Someone in the twitter replies noted that gray and yellow were the San Diego Fleet's colors lol....that'd be awkward...

The Colts named it "facemask gray?" That is funny.

Why are we taking the word of some random person on twitter? Do they have proven sources?

Oh my goodness, that twitter poster is in San Diego.

 

But I thought there wasn't one soul left in San Diego who was still a Chargers fan?

does anyone really think they would shoehorn gray into this? It makes no sense for it to be primary road jersey. As an alt maybe but I think this guy isn’t very credible

First off, no one ever said that. 

Secondly, let it go.
