Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

No, this was a specific one. About a week ago a little bird told me a new "jersey" was in the works, not sure if this means a new full time jersey or if it's an alternate/throwback type. Just that something was definitely in the pipeline.

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.
did you win or know the results for the "most displaced fan" video contest?

Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

If we ever get a new uniform, it either needs to:

1) be very retro and sport the traditional logo; or
2) Be very modern and NOT have the indian on the helmet

I just dont see the two mixing well. honestly, i'd prefer ditching the indian entirely and going with the cursive "R" or something else, such as a modified version of the arrow or something like that.

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:
I thought that the Saints pulled it off nicely as well. I agree that it doesn't belong with burgandy and gold though.

Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

Black is one of the Saints' primary colors though. They didn't add it for the sake if fitting it in somewhere.

I love black uniforms...if that's part of the team's color scheme.

What I'm talking about is how some teams add a dark color for the sake of an update, like the Dolphins with the navy blue drop shadows on their numbers a few years back, or the 49ers with the black or the Eagles with the black 3rd jerseys. (them or the Jets need to bring back Kelly Green!)

That video sucked. I'm not sure that I could have done better but someone could have.

Re: New Uniforms? Summo on Redskins.com!

adding black to the skins uni's would have been cool about 5 years ago, not now.

I disagree w/the former & agree w/the latter. In short, Black in the Skins uni should've been considered a dead idea as soon as Zorn said "maroon and black!"

so are you saying you've never liked the idea of adding black to the uniform (i'm not retarded,just slow. lol). i've never liked the idea,i'm just saying if it was gonna happen, it should have been years ago. to do it now would not be a smart move,imo.

I wonder which age group chooses the old look and which chooses a new look? Count me as an older fan looking for change.
26 wanting the logo and colors to stay, if they want to freshen it up that's fine
