Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

My Landry jersey is sad, along with my Coles jersey. I have been afraid all off-season that my Moss and Cooley jerseys would become has beens to. My favorite jersey ever was my D. Green, but it was lost years ago. I am afraid of buying current player jerseys, but I want a Kerrigan and an Orakpo.

I agree, but I'll take a polo and a hat or a jacket over a jersey anytime.

I got a Riggo jersey and a Dexter Manley jersey. Free agency makes jerseys obsolete too often so I stick with the classics.

Look what I just came across...our "collar motto" has been a logo for a few years. Forgot about that.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Found an interesting fact...the Redskins once wore BLUE uniforms for a game vs. the Brooklyn Dodgers. Apparently, the Dodgers insisted on wearing their red uniforms or just did not bring the blues and the Redskins had a burgundy that was close enough to the red to cause confusion. We had no white jerseys at that time, only one set which was B&G. Where we got the blue jerseys, I don't know.







Quote:
If it seems odd that the maroon Redskins would have to don blue to avoid clashing with the Dodgers, it's because unlike the baseball Brooklyn Dodgers, the football Dodgers wore both blue and red. The Redskins and Dodgers must have found themselves in a clashing situation, forcing one of the teams to wear a different color. Or perhaps with the transportation difficulties mentioned in the article that prevented the band from arriving (I didn't know the Redskins band ordinarily traveled to road games back in the day...♫ "Hail to the Redskins...hail victory...hail to the Redskins....fight for old D.C." ♫) ...perhaps with the traveling issues, the team's gear didn't arrive either and so maybe they had to borrow the Dodgers' secondary unis. Or all they had was their maroon outfit, which clashed with the Dodgers' red, and as the home team the Dodgers insisted on wearing red... Anyway, you can see the whole article about the game with a picture here.
We wonder if this was the only time the Skins ever wound up wearing this color? With the Dodgers and Cardinals both wearing red at times, could it be possible that blue was worn by the D.C. boys other than just this once in this era? And was it actually their own jerseys they wore or did they have to borrow from the Dodgers? If this was the only time that they ever wore blue, it lends credence to the possibility that it was the Dodgers' unis they were wearing. It would be interesting to see if the players wore their usual numbers, and if the numbers looked like the font the Redskins used at the time, or if they do in fact look like the Dodgers' blue uniforms. It is hard to make out any Redskins numbers in the photo in the newspaper article. Anyway the blue uniform is now in the database.



Is this what Slingin' Sammy looked like on a day in 1942 against the Dodgers?
Note: This amateur-ly colorized picture is not from that game, but a different game against the Bears.

Is this inside info or some kind of a news release we can read about somewhere else? Cool to think they are going with another throwback to celebrate 80 years. I think that's 80 years including Boston right?
