2013 NFL uniform/logo changes

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this belongs here, so I'm posting it in multiple spots. What's the deal with this jersey?

I found it at the Marshall's in the Nicollet Mall. They only had then in children's sizes, but it clearly is the new uniform, but produced not as a Nike jersey, but as a Reebok EQT.

There isn't any Reebok branding, but the equipment logo is at the collar, and on the hem. They had Ponder and Jennings for $35.

Any ideas?

Interesting. Between the reebok and Nike deals nfl released some none branded jerseys. Don't know why they'd do it now though.

Also a few years back at a Marshall's (and similar instances have happened but this one stood out the most) they had a texans bills hybrid. Very ugly.

Yeah, I think it's one of the NFL Proline jerseys that they make for some of the not so popular players. Such as:

But why it has the equipment patch and why its of a popular player...I have no idea...

I posted a similar question last year regarding a questionable Chargers jersey I found at Dick's Sporting Goods. One of the responses was that it may have been a counterfeit jersey that someone successfully fooled them into taking back as a return. I'm pretty sure Pro Line isn't Reebok, so my gut says it's probably fake. I know it's weird for a major retailer to sell fake jerseys, but it does happen sometimes.

Edit - I missed the part about not having any Reebok branding. But it still looks like this year's Pro Line jerseys have different tags and patches. So, I'm baffled.

I'm sure most store employees wouldn't have a clue if someone tried to return a fake. They aren't uniform snobs like we are on here so it's likely they'd never notice.

All bootleg as hell, too.

Not necessarily.

The Pro Line jerseys are made by a different manufacturer. Wouldn't surprise me that they put the wrong patch at the throat.

So, apparently this concussion thing has gotten so ridiculous that teams are no longer allowed to wear throwback uniforms because the NFL wants players to wear the same helmets all season long. WTF?

I'm gonna be out of town for this game, now I'm glad since they are doing the stupid putting signs and :censored: in Spanish thing.

I only wish they'd stop the whole month of pink too.

This league is becoming a joke anyways, you can't hit anymore. I have no idea how a player is supposed to stop and change directions in mid air.

Goodell is ruining this league, not making it safer. It's a physical sport, it will never be guaranteed to be 100% safe. Stop trying Rog.

Regarding the attendance topic...

So this relatively new bar-code scanning at the gates (in place of simply tearing the ticket stubs) has no use but to state whether or not the person has already entered the stadium, or the ticket has already been spent?

Then why even use the technology? Tearing the stubs could tell someone that.

I would think the bar-code scanning at gates is used to account for the number of people entering the game (actual attendance, as opposed to tickets distributed).

Now I'm not saying this is the figure they use for their publicly released attendance records, but it wouldn't surprise me.

I've been saying it for years - the only solution is to eliminate helmets altogether. Safer for players, and better for fans.

Or at the very least, reduce them to something akin to a rugby scrum cap.

I've been saying this for a long time and everyone always looks at me like I'm stupid. Players leading with their head would stop the first time a player does it without a helmet.

Again with the Bills: game was not blacked out, but attendance was 92% according to ESPN. Since every ticket was distributed in one way or another, that means that almost 1 in 10 people who held a ticket to the game could not be bothered to go? On a nice weather fall day? Yeah, I know... lolz it's the Bills, but we don't give up on the team that much this early.

That would be interesting. Or, if we went in the other direction, helmets should be soft on the inside and the outside. It's all about spreading out the force of impact over a longer period of time, and having football helmets be rock hard on the outside makes no sense in that regard.

Edit: Also, the timing of this ruling is really weird. The Bills wore their throwback helmets this week. Now the Bucs cannot wear theirs two weeks later?

I have to say I agree with both of you. Players think they are invincible inside their super-new shiny Revo Speed 360. While it is one of the best of the helmets on the market, no helmet will prevent a concussion if a player tackles leading with crown of his helmet. At the very least, I think eliminating facemasks may not be a bad idea

I think a player had to be carted off on a stretcher on Sunday. It probably had something to do with that and avoiding future lawsuits.

They did wear their throwback helmets, but it very well could be the same helmet they've had all season, just changed the decals and all. Same for Bears, same helmet, removed decal, change facemask.

This would explain why the Falcons weren't wearing their throwbacks this year
