I can’t tell if you’re being serious, what else could they be?

 

They obviously are an attempt at tiger stripes, just poorly done.

 

This is a real tiger, it doesn't get all swirly like that and it it appears they tried to make them vertical, like a real tiger.  But it doesnt work well.  The new pant stripes mirror a real tiger much better.

That was probably a stipulation the head honchos made. As comically bad as Bengals management can sometimes be, they know their helmets are iconic. 

I see it said here all the time - “when are these owners gonna start saying no to Nike?!”

 

It does happen and you’re right, this might be the case.

How about if the Bengals removed the stripes from their pants altogether and replaced them with the “B” monogram at the top?

I don't hate it, but no.

If only a certain team that recently moved to the West Coast had the same type of awareness.

Sorry man, the Ravens are already doing this in the same division.

They are also notoriously cheap, to the miserly ownership not changing the helmets may have simply been choosing not to open the pocketbook for fancy helmet paint and masks.

 

They already paint the helmets so new paint wouldn't be drastically more expensive. If finances are the reason they didn't change the helmets then it might be because they didn't want to replace the thousands of seats in the stadium that have the helmet etched into the plastic seatback.

Well the stripes would likely stay, I think they are just talking about the finishes. So matte, satin, I’m sure there are some people who would want a chrome helmet. Even if the 1 helmet rule went away and they introduced white tiger helmets they would go with those seats still. 
 

just for the record I’m not advocating for any of these things and am so glad they stayed with their current helmets.

My new jersey came in on Saturday. Looks really good in person and I felt a lot less silly wearing this than I ever did in the 04-20 jerseys.

Why are the seats in PB stadium teal/green and not orange?

IDK, the muted dark green's a more neutral color? It's something I've never really cared about one way or the other. I happen to like the green seats. 

 

This is what all orange seats in a stadium looks like if you're curious.

I always assumed they wanted a jungle theme in the stadium. The side wall graphics always seem to have a lot of green on them, so it seemed to all fit well together. 

 

Wonder what it would look like if they tried to do tiger stripes in the seats. Similar to Arizona. Might be cool, but might also end up looking like a big mess.

Unless you pick a pattern and paint the seats, it could look pretty awful. Soccer teams like arranging seats to show their names or sponsors and they have to be blocky and clearly legible.

Coupled with drapery (I can't think of a better word at the moment) at field level, I've always thought the green seats looked good. Kind of like a tiger emerging from the tall grass in the jungle.

 

Edit: Would have helped to keep reading before quoting and posting.

I'm shocked you already got it!

 

I ordered my Robert Woods Rams jersey last June and it didn't come until September 2020.
