clinton portis must be at it again

Recommended Posts

skins are wearing burgundy socks with the burgundy pants and it looks like shizit! somebody needs to take this guy out.

Looks a heck of a lot better then those ugly-ass striped socks. Again, those things have been "out" for the past 15 years and most teams have finally figured that out.

The Redskins uniforms are out-of-date anyway. The socks can't save the rest of that uniform.

You're so right. Classic looks are so out of style. They need to go monochrome and also have a black alt with black numbers. Also, they need to have some kind of side panel that sort of connects with one color of pants, but not with any of the others (they need 4 different colors of pants).

Exactly. That's what I have been saying all along.

Why look like this...

One of these days, I'd like you to fully explain why you hate any uniform introduced before 1997.

I like the Giants uniform. I like the Colts uniform (now that they dumped those ugly ass striped socks). I like the Steelers uniform (even though they were smart to modify it). I like the Jets uniforms.

What's your point anyway? I guess you don't have one.

The Redskins uniforms are hideous. Always have been. So are Cincinnati's. An ugly uniform is a ugly uniform. The Broncos, Seahawks, Bucs, Falcons and Eagles have all figured it out and realized that their 1970s-esque uniforms were tired and played out.

The Redskins need to get into this century and use the deep maroon and mustard gold color scheme. Solid maroon socks. Simple stripe pattern on jerseys and pants. Choice of gold or maroon pants with either jersey. Would look 1000 times better than that out-of-date crap they wear now and would be UNIQUE to any other team in the league.

I have to say that in my honest opinion the redskins white jersey red pants look is by far the best look in the entire NFL. Its darn near perfect and anyone who dislikes it is just plain loopy.

Agreed, and i'm a Giants fan.

If this was 1978, when most teams had elements of the Redskins uniforms (wide stripes on pants; garish colors, and striped socks) then you would be right. For that time period, they looked fine.

It ain't 1978 anymore.

No, they need to look sharp. Their uniforms are out-of-style (and have been for years).

You can have a traditional looking uniform (which is so important to some of the foggies around here), without looking out-of-date.

Use the elements of their maroon/mustard color scheme, with a modernized look. No striped socks. No grey facemask.

Maroon helmet (with current logo), no helmet stripe.

Maroon facemask.

White home jersey (since that is the way the Redskins seem to have to have it) with traditional maroon font numbers, trimmed in mustard. Gibbs "R" on sleeve. Number on shoulder.

Maroon jersey, with white numbers trimmed in mustard. Gibbs "R" on sleeve. Number on shoulder.

Mustard pants, with thin striping.

Maroon pants, with thin striping.

Solid maroon socks.

Black shoes.

Modernized with traditional elements. Sharp, unique and recongnizable. Would be popular among the players, who generally hate the current uniforms.

Its really that simple.

Foggies?

If you're going to call other posters names, then you really ought to make sure that you do it correctly. :P

Your concept is interesting - draw it up and we'll C&C.

I tend to agree with you. They don't have a classic, time-honored look that hasn't changed in 50 years. They have a very dated 80s looking uniform. It's pretty clean and simple, and I don't mind it all that much, but it could use an update.

Agree. Although, when they first wore the burgandy on white look in Dallas with the black shoes last season or the season before (whenever they switched to the black shoes), I actually thought it was a good enough look to replace the whites at home.

But that's just me. ^_^

Foggies Rule!

You really seem to be a venom-filled, disrespectful youth don't you? You certainly are opinionated, but they are just that-opinions, not the absolute truth as you seem to think it is.

I get that you're young and you're into all the new stuff; you're probably sitting there wearing your Michael Vick black-and-white EQT jersey right now. But all of us "foggies" who were actually alive during the time of the more classic uniforms still like them and prefer them, and you have to understand and respect that. And what is your hatred of striped socks? In the case of the Redskins, from a design standpoint there's really no argument that the solid burgundy socks look better. The striped socks match the jersey and balance out the uniform, since the pants match the helmet. It's just good design. What's not good design is having solid colored uniforms that look like unitards.
