Pretty bad design flaw to not have a retrieve password setting on that, as its apparently not connected to your registration with vikings.com. Yikes.

I've got a few unlocked, but so far it's very vague information. Chad Greenway said something about the uniforms being "simple" and mentioned the pants design.

I give it until Tuesday to leak.

I'm thinking more like Sunday.

the jerseys will be unveiled on April 25th at the team's draft party.

They show a slideshow on this link with a vikings uniform per year. For 1992, they show Cris Carter in white with the logo on the sleeves. For 1993, they show him with the previous white uniform. Well done. Obviously 1992 is wrong, since it was maybe 96 when they added the logo and yellow trim to the numbers.

Holy crap. Just watched that slide show. Never knew the Vikings changed designs that may times. Insane.

the one label 1979 has to be from 1975 as the Viking were at home in purple against the bills in 1979. 1992 is really 1999 as there is the cm patch on the uniform .

i guess ill post what ive said a few times in here. i dont have any inside info on the Viks but judging by what they did with their logo recently and knowing the uniform they have now, i think they will have a new design that is very inspired by a vintage look or two. basically, i think they'll do what the Bills did. theres an old saying about branding, "when everyone else zigs, zag". we dont see a football team update a look with traditional stripes and block numbers much anymore. the Bills were a pleasant surprise and i dont think the 2 brands/demographics are that different. i think it would be good for them to do something that is timeless.

Noudor, i dont think you have to worry about a grey mask, but i wouldnt mind that either :P

I would be blown away if it was not retro. The Jared Allen helmet video is interesting though. I have never thought for a second that they'd change the essence of their helmet. The helmet will have horns so either they've done someone Seahawks/Oregon, or the video was made to be funny.

I Know I've been a broken record on this, but I REALLY hope they have yellow outlines on the numbers and stick with purple facemasks. If they do that, I'll be content with whatever else they do.

its hard to know what to make of the Allen vid. i believe him when he says a "mix of old and new" but that could be something as simple as a color adjustment or extreme as an HGI chrome and textured pimping.

Did anyone see the Jared Allen video of him seeing the helmet? He loves it and calls it tough. So right there, you know they didn't do much with the helmet

Probably darkened the shade of purple a little and added a gray facemask. The lightened pic shows no sleeve stripes.

All signs seem to point to an updated retro look a la the Bills, which I would be ecstatic about as a fan.

Just please no chrome, that's all I ask.
