im curious about the 5 on the packers jersey. are you shure that it isnt the way the jersey is scrunched on the player in the photo that makes it look different? maybee im wrong but it looks like the photo was taken at the end of a game and its possible that it got stretched during play or something. maybee? :therock:

I'm sure because I've seen many college teams that have their 5's like that.

I just thought I'd let everyone know, they won't be up for a little while as I am working on getting a domain name because I already have pleanty of space so the bandwidth doesn't go down.

I'll let everyone know when they are back up and ready to download.

Thanks to everyone who has helped me and a BIG thanks to JP for ALL is wonderful help.

i love this project your doing, but, one thing that i noticed that is wrong is the buccaneers 4. i dont have a picture but how i can explain it is, look at this part of the 4: ->4 you have it slanted towards the base of the 4 but it is accually stright down. i hope that makes sense.

Actually it is slanted. Most NFL teams with the slanted four, it doesn't look that way because of the way the jerseys look on the players but it does in fact have a slant to it because none of the NFL teams with the Varsity Block Numbers have one that goes straight down.

Slanted #4 example:

DO YOU KNOW IF THAT IS A CHANGE THAT WAS RECENTLY MADE? BECAUSE I HAVE AN AUTHENTIC GAME WORN MIKE ALSTOTT JERSEY AND IT DOSENT SLANT. AND I HAVE MAYBEE A THOUSAND PICTURES WITH MIKE ALSTOTT AND ABOUT 90% ARE ALL STRIGHT DOWN. I DONT KNOW. DO YOU THINK IT IS POSSIBLE THAT BOTH ARE OR WERE USED SIMULTANIOUSLY?

AND I KNOW ITS REALLY HARD TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BUT AFTER SEEING THE BRAD JOHNSON PICTURE AND LOOKING CLOSER (WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS) AT THE PICTURES OF ALSTOTT I SEE THE SLANT, BUT STILL NOT IN ALL OF THE JERSEYS. NOW IM REALLY CURIOUS...........

I just checked the gettyimages site and went through a couple games' worth of photos for this season. The elbow joint of the 4 is straight up & down, not at a slant. That picture looks like an old one, or it's just done that way on that particular jersey.

I'll have you know that I've been crying for the last half hour after that tongue lashing. I haven't been yelled at like that since my mom found my secret porno stash 10 years ago.

Anyway, I have definately seen the 4 both ways. I cannot confirm if the picture I found is from this year, but my recollection is that for the first few years of the red jersey the 4 was definately straight, and only the past season or two was it slanted.

I didn't see any pictures of the QB, but I did see one of a WR and a DB. Both had the side of the 4 straight up. I couldn't find any of Allstott or Johnson. I used nflshop.com for the references when I drew them originally, and the side was slanted.

one more thing im curious about. if you look at the colors of the orange outline on the two different pictures of john lynch, do they look like way different shades of orange, or is it just the picture, or maybee me?

For some reason, the Bucs used a different set of numerals in 2002. They returned to the original numerals in 2003.

i started thinking maybee the slanted 4 is worn with the white pants and the stright one with the pewter, but then i saw a picture of lynch wearing the jersey and it had the super bowl patch on it!!! and theyve only been once and they wore the pewter pants so............ i give up. i have no idea

The "1" is also different. In the original set (straight 4) the top serif on the one is slanted diagonally. On the new/old set (diagonal 4), the top serif on the "1" is curved (note the Brad Johnson example above).
