Will the Redskins ever get new uniforms?
 
I know this is probably a weird topic to bring up, but does anyone think the Redskins will ever change their uniforms? They could go back to the darker maroon with the spear on the helmet and change the yellow to gold and make a few changes to the jerseys. Why not throw in a black jersey, as well? Every other team is throwing out an alternate jersey and making money off of it. I think it's time the Redskins change their uniforms. Plus, another thing to think about - whenever a team changes their uniforms, for some unknown reason, the majority of the teams do better. Does anyone think it's time for a change or is it wishful thinking?

Alternate jersey? You must be a kid or a new Redskins fan. The only time an alternate jersey should be worn is on Halloween. The only reason teams get new jerseys is to fleece idiot fans out of dough. The Redskins are not about to get on the football-welfare line for their next meal.

I don't see anything wrong with the uniforms. The only change I see coming would be because of political correctness.

Can you say Buffalo Bills??? Chargers changed this year and went from a 1 to a 3. That is just recent examples... yes, you get the Bronco's... but you get just as many that go down too.

Unfortunately you are probably right, at some point especially if they get to the Super Bowl again enough pressure will be put on them that they will have no choice but to change thier name...probably the Generals or something lame, notice how we only hear about it when they are winning...I'll still root for them, but it won't be the same...

To my understanding Dan Snyder already owns the rights to the name Warriors through the Arena League. Sorry I have nothing to support this other than hearsay.

Okay I found a supporting article that Snyder owns the name Warriors.

F--k Political Correctness. Two of my grandparents immigrated from Ireland, you don't hear me b!tching about the Bahsten Celtics or Notre Dame Fightin' Irish. Another grandparents was born in Canada and I don't complain about Vancouver Canucks or Montreal Canadiens. I can trace roots back to Sweden but Minnesota Vikings doesn't bother me. I am 6'2" 265, but do not complain about the New York or San Francisco Giants.

I agree with the whole political correctness thing. I see that as being the only thing that could affect the look of our uniforms. Personally I think ours are the best looking in the league. (maybe I have a biased opinion but oh well) Look at the teams that have had a complete transformation of their uniforms and colors within the last 15 years or so: Patriots, Buccaneers, and the Rams. . I could maybe include the Falcons too. Anyways, back to my point. The Pats and Bucs uniforms before were absolutely horrible. Look at how cute Warren Sapp looks.

Maybe its because i'm not a Bucs fan, but I could never imagine myself wearing one of those jerseys. Surely someone got the word around how hideous they were and the changes were made, but I don't see that happening with us. If theres a skins fan here who hates our uniforms SPEAK UP!

I don't like this thread. Redskins uniforms are just right, they've won 3 superbowls with what they are wearing. No need to change.

Agreed, sfredskin. No change is necessary. Maybe it's just the nostalgia factor but I LIKE the old Bucs and Pats unis.
