Re: Redskins Uniforms

I was looking at the Dallas uniforms the other night, and granted I am biased but those stripes and numbers on their jerseys look cheap. Looked like they were ironed on in someones' basement.

I do like the Redskins' band uniforms. A vast improvement from what they had been wearing. For some reason they reminded me of McDonalds uniforms.

Thumbs up Re: Redskins Uniforms

If the fans are clamoring for a change, then let's petition the organization to begin an official campaign for a makeover with fan input -- maybe vote for the best new look.[/QUOTE]

~~~~~~~~~~
I like that idea.

Yeah, I've noticed that too. Their numbers just don't look right.

The pants that go with the white jerseys are sort of aqua color, too. Not silver -- not the silver they wear with with dark blue jerseys.

Anyway, they're the Cowboys. So they just suck all the way around.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

Yea Dallas jerseys are weird bcuz the pants are more of a greenish color instead of silver. And the blue stripes on the sleeves are differnt colors than the blue star.. Really odd

Re: Redskins Uniforms

I wouldn't change a thing. They are classic. Seems like the teams changing their unis don't have much tradition. Look at the teams that still have classic unis: SF, PIT, DAL, WAS, etc.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

^ (you're probably joking)

No, Dallas does wear green pants and none of the blues match throughout the uniforms.

I always thought this but never heard anyone else mention it.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

The real reason they did it was: in the 1970s, the colors did not show up accurately on TVs back then, so they started using the silver-green (real name of that color) pants to make them look better on TV.

However, those days of bad TVs are long gone and they still use that trainwreck of a uniform.

I have no valid explanation for trying to use every shade of blue known to man in the same uniform, but that's the reason behind the green pants.

Yeah, they were supposed to change to all silver and navy...two UNIFORM colors.

There was a even whole thread about it on CCSL but it never happened.

Yes, I know most players are wearing the elastic cuffed jerseys so it's not noticeable but, the stripes on the gold pants (and socks) clearly belong with another jersey. In my opinion, DALs unis are clean. Standard numbers without outllines match the players' nameplate and the numbers are on the shoulders instead of on the sleeves. That's why the 70th anniversary unis were so nice.
Thats why they were able to get away with it being somewhat of a secret for so long. Had we actually made new uniforms we would have heard about them back during late winter-early spring. Keeping jersey's a secret doesn't bode well for business since the new uniforms are reveled in the offseason to prompt fans into buying them. On top of that teams are suppose to tell the NFL ahead of time what jerseys they plan to use throughout the year, and if I remember right theres a limit to how many different uniforms you can use.

However in this situation all we did was recycle the pants and socks from our 70's throwback kit, and since teams don't really sell football pants in stores they were able to keep it a secret.
