Bills confirm new uniform for 2011

Recommended Posts

I got an email from the Bills saying "the new uniforms will incorporate the teams storied history while maintaining the signature charging buffalo logo."

They will unveil them at a fan event later in the offseason.

They should actually confirm a 2011 season will occur before announcing new items for sale.

Can we just assume that an "event later this year" will be sometime around the draft?

I'm a little torn on this one. I'm very excited to see the Bills go away from their current mess, but I'm not sure I want to see the NFL fall into the NBA trap of modernizing past identities. That said, I really like the handful of concepts that I've seen that do this (defrank's concept is a good example of this), but I'm thinking more big picture, here.

why thank you. I am huge with retro designs. I think they are great. I mean, who wouldn't want a return to those throwbacks, with some changes *ahem ahem*? Some teams really do need it.

Throwbacks with modern logo? We can hope.

Indeed.

Also, I would love it if, during the unveiling, someone starts it with "What the hell were we thinking? Seriously?"

I find it amazing that it took the Bills organization THIS long to finally address their uniform situation. How long have fans been clamoring now??

I get the feeling they're sticking the current logo on a white helmet, going with the current throwbacks from the shoulders on down, and calling it a day. Which, if they do, would be so...predictable.

I know this is a FAT chance, probably fatter than Mark Mangino, but...whatever they do, can they PLEASE resurrect the Champion block numbers? Those numbers just scream "Bills" to me--and I get the feeling I ain't the only one who thinks that.

Off-topic, but your Chargers mock-ups with the gold pants are great, I wish the team would adopt those.

Predictable? Yes. An improvement? Yes. The Bills uniforms are so bad that, in my opinion, boring and predictable is a very welcome change.

The fugliest uniform in the NFL will now officially belong to the Cincinnati Bengals.

I would like to see something like what CW came up with, that utilized royal blue, nickle, and red.

Now I hope the Bills manage to become competitive, so they're not tempted to throw away a great look again.
