Brian in Boston Posted September 24, 2003 Share Posted September 24, 2003 I am one of the founders/organizers of a ten-team flag football league. The league is celebrating its 10th anniversary, so we've decided to go all-out with regard to buying new uniforms this year. Through a business colleague who plays on my team, we're going to order customized authentic NFL jerseys.Given that we'll only be ordering one jersey per man per team, teams obviously won't have the luxury of switching from "home" to "road" unis each week. This means that we must choose 10 different-colored jerseys (i.e. We can't order both the Panthers' and Saints' Black jerseys, since they'll eventually play each other). The players have also let it be known that they would prefer jerseys from teams with sleeve logos, as it gives the look of each jersey a bit "more bang for the buck". I personally decided that we'd only order jerseys with logos that didn't contain letters identifying an NFL team's home city (i.e. no Ravens' jersey with the "B-R" Shield, no Dolphins' jersey with an "M" on the mascot's helmet, etc.), so that the logo was more universal.So... after checking on the availability of certain jerseys - including some alternates - I found that we started with a pool of the following potential jerseys:Bengals = Black or WhiteBuccaneers = Red or WhiteChargers = Navy Blue or WhiteCowboys = Navy BlueEagles = Green or WhiteFalcons = Black or WhiteJaguars = Teal or WhitePanthers = Black, Carolina Blue or WhitePatriots = Navy Blue or WhiteRams = Navy Blue or WhiteSaints = Black, Gold or WhiteSeahawks = Seahawk Blue or WhiteTitans = Navy Blue or WhiteVikings = Purple or WhiteAs you can see, some choices are automatically dictated to us. We have to go with the Buccaneers' Red (though I honestly prefer their White jersey), Eagles' Green, Jaguars' Teal, Seahawks' Blue and Vikings' Purple, as those colors are "unique" in terms of what is available to us. Once those selections are set, the next group of colors/jerseys presents itself through process of elimination. I selected the Bengals' Black jersey, as I think it looks better than their White. This means we have to go with the Falcons' White, which in turn means that we have to go with the Saints' Gold and the Panthers' Carolina Blue.Which leads to my question (whew... I knew I'd get to it)...Which Navy Blue jersey would you guys select? Would it be the Chargers', Cowboys', Patriots', Rams' or Titans' jersey? Actually, let me make your choice a bit easier by eliminating the Cowboys from consideration. None of the teams in the league is really too keen on wearing it. So, which Navy Blue jersey would you choose?Brian in Boston Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
