Before we progress, I assume most of everyone is enjoying the Gamblers look?

I feel like the helmet logo needs a white keyline to make it stand out. Otherwise, looks great.

How would it look as the primary, replacing the black, and then bringing back their original silver as the secondary color?

Funny you should say that.... because 5 years later they released this lot.

Trying to appease a divisive fanbase consisting of old and new fans doesn't normally work and yet the fanbase agreed on one thing... these uniforms didn't look good, the dropping of black as a major factor in fan anger and performances on the field which consistuted to a 3 year slump ((Think Arizona Cardinals)) eventually forced the ownership to basically cut his losses and leave Vegas.

However this would prove to be a bonus for a wealthy billionare buys the club and would fund the all new Allegant Stadium... because eventually air conditioning would be a massive bonus.

Alright time for the last update for the Gamblers... so with new Allegant Stadium, air conditioning and the ability to no longer overheat their helmets.... the new owner decides a uniform change is needed and so in 2021...

Black is back.

Black is back as the Home and Road, with a few changes here and there... it becomes a new age classic with the Silver becoming what the Raiders should be using at the moment whilst the Alt essentially makes the classic Falcons R/R/VS a special thing...

Alright let's begin these quick concepts with what I consider a perfect look...

LOS ANGELES RAMS

AL9nZEXaj03EgoLobJbQRTkyYeNwyubLq7PtJBhN

AL9nZEVdlkoCNpToYfWI_Y4MAyaAh-zGhPbTo8zG

The Rams have always had the perfect look.... however in the 90's their issues with stadiums would eventually get them occupied to the evils of Stan Kronke... however St Louis in this continunity was blocked off by the Cardinals and so in 1995 they would organise a new stadium and share said stadium with the San Diego Chargers who prompted to move to Los Angeles two decades earlier than planned.

The Alt you all know is based on the 70's whilst the perfect look has now won the Super Bowl twice.

They didn’t merge the USFL teams into the NFL divisions ?

Whilst I am doing divisional placements... let's drop another team that has never changed.

OAKLAND RAIDERS

The Raiders have been in Oakland since 1995 and without the prize of Las Vegas in our timeline.... they were forced to deal with Oakland's anti sports council alongside their new partners in crime, the A's

Personally, I think that in the future of the original article, the Raiders move to Salt Lake City to replace the Gold. That's just my headcanon, though.

I hadn't intended for this lot to be the next focus but considering Arizona is literally blocked off to them and already things will change... let's focus on the Cards shall we?

ST LOUIS CARDINALS
AL9nZEVEgatXwpVwYTcMlq0QH93_RU45g2cyxEN5

The team that used to face off against the Cowboys, the Eagles, the R--------s and the Giants will eventually evolve into a team that takes on the toughest group of teams in the league.... the Packers, the Bears, the Lions and the Vikings.

From winning the Super Bowl in 1999 against the Bud Adams Titans.... to facing financial insecurities in a few years, the Cardinals went through a rollercoaster and it got so low and so bad that the team was aquired by the owner of the St Louis Cardinals Baseball team and so he added his Red to the uniforms... eventually in 2005 they went through the redesign to become the current looking Cardinals today.

I think they look a little off.
