Why can't the Colts look like the Vikes?

Watching the Vikings last night made me wonder. The Vikings have a UCLA shoulder insert on their white jerseys. It looks normal. My question is if Reebok can make the insert correctly for the Vikings, then why not for the Colts? The Colts wore that style long before Minnie and that Colt package has always been one of football's best. In the last couple of years Indy has worn those damn raglan sleeves with the insert about half the size it should be. Which I don't think works very well on a football jersey. Your feelings out there, guys..... :wacko:

Clearly, you haven't taken a good, close look at the Vikings' linemen.

Not than anyone would ever want to, mind you.

Oh, how I long for the day when a football jersey had something called "sleeves." They came down almost all the way to a player's elbow. And they allowed for intricate striped designs to appear on a jersey without looking ridiculous and out of place. And players never complained about how those dangling sleeves hindered their play on the field...

What I don't get is how stripes and even templates vary among players ON THE SAME TEAM!

Example: Hugh Douglas and Jeramiah Trotter on the Eagles both have jerseys built on a template that includes a variation of the raglan style sleeve. The rest of the team uses the template with the standard set-in sleeve. It doesn't really matter because they don't have stripes, but it would really be a mess if they did and the stripes looked way different on two of the players.

The strange thing to me is that the Rams jerseys don't have this problem.

Not all Rams players have the gold stripe go ALL the way around the shoulder/sleeve, but they all go to at least the arm pit I believe, and it looks fine.

Perhaps the stripes are in a slightly different location, but I don't see why the Colts and Vikes wouldn't move theirs over a couple of inches if it meant not having that half stripe crap. It's not like anyone would notice THAT change.

I wholeheartedly agree with the beefs about the "shortened" stripes on the Colts jerseys and other jerseys.

I mean, it almost looks as if the team is too cheap to get stripes that go down to the armpits.

Ditto to that.
