Re: Redskins Uniforms

Black is a bad idea. Nothing is better than the Native American Logo. Just an R on the helmet? What are we? Rutgers? We gotta look like a Pro Team even if it doesnt seem like we are run like a Pro team.

Well I think we all can agree BLACK is not in the teams colors, however neither is WHITE technically. Don't get me wrong... White has been incorporated into the "Burgundy and Gold". So if WHITE can and was incorporated then so to could BLACK be incorporated to replace WHITE as trim.

I think the major problem is half the fans despise change and would prefer to keep the same uni's and helmet forever. The other half are split up into groups that would like to see a modernized retro look and the other half wanting just a modernized look.

Good post. It worked for Tampa Bay.

Further, It is only a matter of time until we will be forced to change our Indian emblem and probably even our name. I think by waiting for that to happen it will cause us to lose our identity as the Redskins completely. Because The change would be dramatic the following season.

Thats why I think we should start making changes to the uniforms now. And have suggested the 'R" on the helmet, but that was just a example. Subtle transitional changes.

I also think our tradition has become one of a losing hard luck "cursed" team. A different look can help to change the mental image that the current uniform projects.

Just for the record, I am not in favor of the liberal movement that threatens to change culture the way it does, but knowing they do and as a country we move in that direction, you can bet on forced change coming to the Redskins real soon.

BTW, black is a Redskins color. HTTR!!!

Re: Redskins Uniforms

I'm not for the "Indian" cause and their complaint about the emblem. I have some Indian in my family and still don't care. I think the people with the complaint need to find a better cause to fight over like the white man taking all their land and never properly paying for it.

Let them open a casino called the caucasion or white skin. Maybe Anglo would be a good name. People need to stop being sooo overly sensitive. If it offends you then don't watch it, don't listen to it, don't purchase the murchandise, better yet become a Cowboys fan.

All right you got me. I see what your getting at and your right... cars now a days don't last 40 yrs. But one would think anyone with half a brain could figure out what I meant. The 40 yrs was in reference to how long the team has had the current logo and quite possibly longer. But I'm sure the lot of you have gotten a different car within the last 10 or 15 years or sooner. How would you feel if people told you that you were crazy to want a newer car because the old one you had is what people associate you with and that you should keep that same old beat up clunker?

Wow...


Anyways, your headdress idea has been done and it looks like utter crap. So would ANY Redskins design with black in it.

White is a neutral color that pretty much every team utilizes so that the two teams playing on the field can always be distinguished between each other.

Even if the Redskins did decide to implement black as a trim color, this would never work because you are using black as a primary color, and this is not the case for the Redskins color scheme. Their primary color is burgundy and then it's gold. I absolutely hated the unis when Lombardi was here, because he tried to make the Redskins look too much like the Green Bay Packers.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

Just stick with the same with some minor adjustments. Maybe use the R logo instead of the Indian Head. Black looks too much like ATL
