The script "R" would have been nice too. I'm sure the players will have other options.

I really hope we get to see the alternate jerseys before the season starts.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

I really don't see the big deal about new jerseys or alternative jerseys. I mean it is nothing more than a sales gimmick to spark interest and get folks to part with their money for more stuff they don't need. I mean we already have alternative uniforms, the two retro ones they have worn in the recent past, the yellow helmets with the script R and the maroon jerseys and helmets with the spearhead on it. I admit it was cool for a bit, but then it just became too much. At least the Skins' retro stuff wasn't as ugly as Pittsburgh's or the Pack's.

I mean I get your point of changing jerseys or having an alternative one or throwbacks to make a little cash...but every sport always does that and they wouldnt if fans wouldnt spend the cash but obviously they do.

Dude, don't mean to burst your bubble a tad, but what do the players really care about changes to the uniforms? The only preactical input I think a player would make is maybe about the inside padding of the helmet and maybe more comfortable shoes, other than that why would they give a shit about small changes or color schemes. I mean did you see some of those retro uniforms from some of the other teams? If those guys would wear thaqt stuff, they would wear anything the management told them to.

That would be pretty cool - like alabamas gloves.

Nike's New NFL Uniforms: Technology Behind The Changes - SBNation.com

here is some of the things I was talking about when NIKE consulted the players, league and looked to make improvements. Your not busting my bubble, I was just passing along info I had heard. Sure selling jerseys is money for the league, but they actually put thought into improving a better play experience which I thought was cool. it wasnt all about crazy color changes and making crappy uniforms to cash in.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

nobody has really answered. if you don't like the new uniforms, what is it that you do not like about them?

For ours, I dunno where there is not to like.. Other than the stripe on the pants and the cleats it seems like they're almost identical to our old ones. Some people like to nitpick I guess?

I think we should make a revision and change it to "F...Goodell".
Why not "Hail to the Redskins"?

That was a really thorough video. I wonder if I got one of the new Skins jerseys if it would repel beer and chicken wing sauce.
