Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

Getting back on the subject of the NFL "One Helmet" rule where teams can no longer wear more than one helmet during the course of a season i.e. the Bucs white "Bucco Bruce". Does the same rule apply to the players changing styles of their helmets during the season?

We have seen five Redskins change helmets over the last three or four games including London Fletcher, who has used a Riddell VS-4 helmet his whole career until Sunday night when he started using a Riddell Speed. What’s the difference?
A change is a change. It has to be insulting to the equipment managers that the league doesn't trust them to fit the helmets properly, but I bet most of them are probably happy not to have another set of helmets to prepare during the season.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

The Packers will be stuck with all-gold helmets this week because of the stupid new rule. They're wearing their throwbacks that would normally have brown helmets, but they now have to peel the logos and stripes off their helmets so they don't look stupid like the Steelers did when they wore current helmets with old throwbacks.

Instead of this:


We'll see helmets like this:




Wish someone would do this again, but it would cost him.

Of course, this is now dead. It should go to the HOF.

While I'm 100% opposed to the grave against a name change, this is one of the best-looking designs I've seen.

Stupid name though.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

The design is nice but would really get the opposition off their backs? Seems as though they would be placating them rather than honoring them.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

That's a good question, I wouldn't see why the logo would be.

I think people find it offensive (which is totally stupid because the bottom line is that it's just a picture of a guy) so if the name changes I'm sure the logo would also have to change.

People who suggest changing the name but not the logo or any association with Native Americans, like the Redhawks set above, are fooling themselves. The people who oppose the name want any and all connections to Native Americans to go. I guess we're stuck with animals, colors, or generic nouns.

Packers appear to be swapping on gray facemasks this week too.

Packers released this:





Also, this may be one of the best-looking games this week:

Wow. That jersey deserves a big, "C'mon, man!" The opponents' simpler uniforms look much better.
