For those who haven't seen the Sea Devils uniform

It's possible that it might not be the real uniform (but close). That looks a lot like the generic template for all the NFLE teams on Madden. Maybe it's just something they threw together- or maybe they put the wrong pants with the wrong shirt, etc.

I don't really follow NFLE though so I'm not sure.

The reason it may look very New England Patriots-esqueis that for the past few years, NFLE has used the Pats' jersey template and applied to every single team. Just another thing to annoy me about NFLE, when there's such a great opportunity for experimentation and creativity, they decide to Xerox an NFL team's uni league-wide.

Unfortunately, "experimentation and creativity" cost money and take effort. If, as official uniform supplier to the National Football League and its ancillary projects, Reebok is going to "experiment" with uniform designs, its not going to be for a six-team, player-development circuit based in Europe.

Working on uniforms for the Pro Bowl and NFL Europe is an "add on" to Reebok's contract with the NFL. Though they'd be loathe to admit it publicly, Reebok most likely views the development of new uniform designs - particularly for such relatively low-profile projects - as a monumental pain in the ass. They'd much rather see the NFL reach a level of uniform stability that allows Reebok to simply focus on the manufacture of existing designs, both for their NFL team clients and the retail marketplace. If one NFL team a year decided to change its uniform look, that probably wouldn't bother Reebok too much, as it would represent a relatively minor undertaking and the finished product would be seen on a "main stage" in the field of sports marketing/merchandising. However, the idea that the design teams at Reebok have nothing better to do than create six unique uniform templates for a football minor-league in Germany (oh, right... and the Netherlands) is stretching the bounds of credibility.

There's a reason that all the teams in NFL Europe seem to be wearing a slightly-tweaked version of the Patriots' jersey template along with rather generic pants: it's cheaper and easier to outfit them that way. Which makes life easier for Reebok. Period.

Call me crazy, but that looks like a recolored and slightly modified (eleasticized sleeves) version of the Pats jersey...

It is. All the teams wear the same uni over there. Kinda reminds me of the NBDL, exccept with actual team logos
