Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

We won't end up with something as god awful as the Steelers or Eagles, only because we've never worn anything that hideous in the past.

I think we'll see a modernized throwback. I'm kinda hoping for the feather helmet look from the early 60s.

Ok, so is there a press conference or an online place we can watch the unveiling? What time is the reveal?

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

im sure it will be stated when reveiled but i also wonder if it is an alternate here to stay or not. I know our last 2 throwbacks were worn for 2 games and thats it, i wonder if we will get something more permanent like the steelers yellow helmet that they wear consistently.

if its good, it will stick around. i am honestly kind of tired of our traditional unis. they just seem very dated. id like a completely new uniform with our current uniform as our alternate/throwback.

I could not find a time. I saw in a WP article from last week that it's a "private event".

I'm just going to keep checking Redskins 80th Anniversary and hope it's the first place to reveal them.

This will be two games also. The Steelers' 80th inmate uniforms too.

That's a League uniform rule regarding the number of times a throwback/alt can be worn, not the team's decision.

So its the Skins 80th year and they will wear this ALT/Throwback against the Steelers who will also be wearing a throwback. Is there another team on their schedule that has been around 80 years that they also play that is a good fit for that 2nd game? Maybe one of the Giants games?

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Actually the NFL does not allow alternate helmets, it has to be a throwback from the past to be worn. (Steelers yellow, Cowgirls white, etc.)

With Nike and the Seahawks teaming up, it's probably a good rule now! We'll never see an Oregon treatment with a different helmet every week in the NFL, thankfully. Pro teams have much more concrete identities than colleges who change their uniforms every year and lately, every week. They have a money-making brand to sell in the NFL, so sticking to that is important to their marketing/branding/merchandising goals.


Anyway...just heard from someone I know in DC that the event is 4:30 to 6:30.

I'm impatient, I want to know!

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

well i guess that narrows it down for the helmet, it will be a throwback type helmet then hopefully that is modernized.

I'm sure the white when added pissed off some people and they probably said similar things to what you have about the black.

I personally am a fan who would like to see a change. We've essentially had the same uni since 1980 when JG came in and it was redesigned. I'm proud of it, I'm glad it has lasted the test of time, but it would also be nice to see a more updated uni for a change. Your favorite Burgundy and White mix can always be used as the away game uni or alternate uni. <take note I'm not even asking for a change to the logo or helmet. but I will say I that I would like to see a reversal of colors on the "R" scripted helmet. Burgundy helmet with a Gold "R" on it.

Redskins' 80th Anniversary Kickoff, Tonight

The Redskins Blog | Sneak Peek At Anniversary Uniform?


I'm slightly worried since it's Nike!

Quote:
The uniforms will blend historical elements from the team's past, with a new-age look for the future.












UPDATE: You can watch full podium coverage of the event, from 5-6:30 p.m., on the Redskins' Facebook Ustream page.

Personally I like the burgundy on burgundy or burgundy on gold, the white
Only looks good if it's all white
