New Vikings Unforms *merged*

That picture certainly doesnt show a new numbering font. Pretty blocky athletic generic, looks like.

Unless that pic is purposefully misleading. Which I honestly cant image.

How do we not have a leak on this?

That's too bad with the pants. I like to think of the Vikings as more of a "Classic" team. THEY DON"T NEED TO CHANGE! Another one bites the dust.

Blame Matt Millen and the Lions. They defouled the entire Classic Division first. It's just a matter of time before the Packers have holograms of Brett Favre on their helmet and the Bears are wearing chaps with gradients and furry bears on their shoulder pads.

Let's hope for just the standard block numbers... all these ugly new fonts are making my eyes hurt.

Speaking of... is there a worse number font in all of sports than the WV Mountaineer's football font? Gack.

I haven't seen them. Nothing for me to tell.

"DMWiz" on the FanHome board has, and all he has done is confirm with me privately that the Pantone colors are staying the same. No changes or additions.

He has also confirmed that the Reebok spec sheet posted here (and everywhere else) looks legit. He has said that the pants are similar in style to the Cardinals.

That's absolutely everything I know.

PANTONE, you are the oracle of these boards, the knower of all things.

Please make these new uniforms appear with your magic wand. And supply us all with some magic beans while you're at it. :P

By the way, love the sig. J.J. rocks.

J.J.'s my guy. Biggest influence on my musical life. J.J. Johnson for those of you who don't know who he was.

Got to meet him on a couple of occasions...and I was a regular member of his email list - up until his death. It was great being able to communicate with him; a guy who knew and worked with absolutely EVERYBODY in the NY jazz scene in the '40s. Recorded with Bird, Dizzy, Clifford Brown, Miles, etc.

In case anyone's wondering - the "Why Indianapolis? Why Not Indianapolis?" line refers to a tune J.J. wrote in reference to his retiring to Indy in the '90s. He was born in Indy, and ended up dying in Indy. He was a big Colts fan as well.

found the link over at purplepride.

A couple of observations about these jerseys:

1. Although initially when I saw the graphics that Phat kid posted, I thought that it appeared they were trying to get the viking horn into the striping on the jersey. When I look at it now, it almost looks exactly like the Patriots striping.

2. I'm thinking they are going to have 3 pairs of pants. A separate white pair for the purple and white jerseys, and another pair of purple pants to go with either the purple or white jersey.

no real big complaints thus far, they look pretty good. I'm not sure how much I'm gonna miss the Viking head on the sleeves, I guess we'll find out.

For some reason, these ended up looking much simpler than I anticipated.

The whites stand out to me because of the limited use of yellow. I realize yellow wasn't a major component of the previous away jerseys, but the little yellow on these images makes it seem barely noticeable.

Josh brings up a good point with the Norseman. I wonder if I'll end up missing it on the sleeve. By the time a gigantic lineman wears this you won't see the sleeve anyway.

I also wonder whether the shoulder horn element will be more noticeable when these are worn with full pads.

EDIT: here's another pic.

Nice find Kevin...

Someone emailed me the other day wanting to know if I was "going to have someone there to take pictures and report the event"... ^_^

Well, my wife's parents live literally 10 minutes door-to-door from MOA, and I tried to get my mother-in-law to be an official "SSUR reporter"...but, she and my father-in-law won't be back in town in time for the thing.

My brother-in-law might be able to head over...

Any of the Twin Cities guys on this board going? Mockba?

Not a big fan of the shoulder strip not matching the numeral color scheme. Should have the outline color. Looks too plain without it.

That looks like Brett Favre's four. Have the Vikings changed their numbers?

I have a question about the latest photos.

If they are real, how could the 3 different jerseys have the exact same wrinkles?

not bad, i just hope they don't kill the update with a monochrome purple jersey+purple pants. I hope they go with a purple Jersey+white pants and a white jersey+purple pants.
