I have looked at Summo's again. I take it back about the Rs on the sleeves, nice extra touch. Kudos to Summo!!!!! Hopefully they have a contest for it and he gets season tickets for his design.

Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

I like the idea of the yellow pants with the burgundy tops. So my vote is the helmets and pants in the second set, and Sumos jerseys.

Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

Not to be a homer but I do like Summo's the best. I think the one thing simply cannot change it is the logo on the helmet. Summo stayed true there and I like it. The work on the jersey's it subtle enough but right in line with the latest jersey's. Me likey.

Screw season tickets. The winner should easily get a cut from jersey sales. What do teams pay companies to design new uniforms?

I'm a fan of these, but I like the classic look... just no more burgandy on burgandy, BAD LOOK!

Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

I don't want a drastic change, just a "refreshening" would be nice though.

Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

I just wanted to modernize the current uniform without going overboard. As I said before they have one of the classic logos and unis in the history of the NFL. If they are going to change they should be looking ahead not back i.e. the spear logo. I like the spear very much but it should be kept with the throw back uni's.

I also wanted to include the script "R" on the jersey. That logo has only been used on sideline apparel and never as part of the uniform. But I didn't want to over do it with logos.

There are two examples that I wanted to avoid with this design. The first being the Ravens. They have one logo on their helmet, a second on their sleeve and a third on their pants! It logo overload!!

The second is the Panthers, they have the same logo on their helmet, sleeve and pants and it looks ridiculous!

As for getting recognition form the team over the design, I doubt it. It probably wonít go any further then it already has. If they change the uniís it will probably be something similar but it will be a little different from mine so that way they protect them selves from some fan claiming that they designed it, like the situation the Ravens had over their original helmet logo. Thanks to all for the kind comments.

Make sure you get money if they even incorporate it. Intellectual property my friend.

Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

Thinking about it all, i think we should try to incorporate some nostalgia. Sumo's design is a nice touch...especially the script on the sleeve.

To me, our current incarnation of white on white/ burgandy on burgandy, etc...is just a reminder of the epic fail that this franchise has been the last 2 years.

I agree with the other posters who feel that a jersey change is a nice way to refresh things and get us a different identity going forward....

Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

Congrats on the recognition, Summo.

I've seen most of those since I'm an active member on the Chris Creamer logo site. Of all of them, I love the first one the most. Throwback + current set = that one, perfection. The set from "Yurk" is great too, but didn't show a helmet, so I'm assuming we'd keep the current one. Fine with me; it looks great, especially since they added the metallic a few years back.

Your graphical talent is great Summo, but it's too Nike-ish with the piping and too modern for my tastes. We have always had a classic look that I don't think we should stray too far from.

Last night on Redskins Nation, Matt Terl and Larry Michael confirmed nothing is officially in the works, it was just a rumor sparked from his post.

Actually the rumor was floating around before Terl's post.

Thursday, January 28: A New Uniform That Didn't Happen

I truly hope we NEVER add a black jersey or incorporate black into our uniforms (except for the Indian's hair of course).

It's an trend that far too many teams in all sports started last decade and needs to end. Unnecessary black just to add black is pointless and usually looks bad. Only the Detroit Lions pulled it off decently. Let's keep our color scheme intact.

Look how hideous the Eagles look in their black jerseys. I don't want that to be us. We WOULD look bad in black.

The Mets are another example of black ruining uniforms.


Zorn would love these but I want to puke:

It's always floating around. We have several threads a year about it.
