problem w/ nike-era outside shoulder TV numbers?

Recommended Posts

every time i watch old football games when reebok did the uniforms, i always thought that it looked nicer. probably a mixture of the material the jerseys were made out of among other things, but I was comparing the two and I realized that uniforms with TV numbers on the outside of the shoulder are thinner on the nike jerseys. (probably to match the chest/back numbers)

from those photos i would say Nike is doing it better. there is more "air" around the number forms and is easier to read. bonus points for the modern jersey material, where the older jerseys were glossier the reflection of light also didn't help legibility.

I do really like the oversized numbers, but it’s a thing of the past and Nike is doing a good job of handling their own.

I like the wider TV numbers better, but I don't think Washington's change to thinner TV numbers had anything to do with Nike. Other teams around the league have kept the wider numbers in the Nike era.
