Yeah I'd rather go with those colors as well, I like the pants. No more yellow. or gold...

I wonder what color we'll be when we go back to the BRAVES?

It would have been cool if they changed the stickers on the helmet to match the logo on the sleeve, that might have tied it together a little better. but over all i liked it a lot especially the decision to take the stripes off the helmet.

Don't give up on the REDSKINS name just yet. I'm not. I've have enough of the PC crowd. I'm not caving.

Yeah, that's NOT happening. Ever.

Besides, these idiots have whined about the Atlanta Braves too. I remember how their heads about exploded when the Braves and Indians both played in the '95 World Series. Ha...

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

I haven’t weighed in on the subject yet, mostly because I think it’s a non issue, but in my opinion people are too hung up on labels. I can only speak from experience, growing up I was the “fat” kid amongst my friends and even though it’s not a racial slur it was still a label. After a while I owned that shit and I didn’t let it offend me. In a society where the term “Jew” and the mother of all racial epithets the “N” word are accepted as a derogatory and a endearing term why isn’t the term “Redskins” held to that regard? I’m shocked that Snyder with all his money has yet to hire a PR firm to face this issue head on, instead he puts these press clippings out there that only make matters worse than they are. The organization needs to prove the opposite, let me repeat opposite of what Hitler did for the swastika. The swastika was a symbol of prosperity for thousands of years before Hitler used as a symbol for his army and made it the most negative symbol in the world. Unfortunately in these times with all the media outlets this issue has become bigger then it has ever been and Snyder might eventually blink and change it, I certainly hope not but you never know.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

I LOVE these uniforms. Yes, there needs to be a few tweaks here and there, but otherwise I think the Redskins need to consider changing to these uniforms full time.

I agree, although I'm not sure why they couldn't just cover the whole helmet with a decal. I really enjoyed the faux leather helmets they wore with the uni last year.

Nice move, NFL.



many of my coworkers are english, none of them had any idea what "jag" was; it's probably only youth slang.

They'd have to add TV numbers to the shoulders to pass league approval. That rule doesn't apply to throwbacks.

That is actually one of the tweaks I was considering. Instead of the Indian head on the sleeves (which I think would be a bit overkill since the logo is on the helmet) Have a spear and feather on the sleeve with the jersey number above or below the spear.
