Smart move? If it fits better with the new collar is it still smart? Are people going to get THAT upset?

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Making the collar a contrasting color is the big mistake. They could use their "technology" without making it stand out, but that's Nike's intention...they didn't colorize the collars for design purposes, it's to market and show off their "advancements in uniform technology". This is the same reason they colorize the flywire in the college uniforms. It would function the same if it blended in with the uniform design, but then no one would know it is there.

See shoulders, the Flywire is the strands of thread that make the jersey fit better.







Green Bay put their foot down and said their tradition is going to trump Nike's marketing gimmicks.

They use the Flywire in shoes too.

I actually like them. And the 2nd picture reminded me more of why Jason Campbell never panned out as opposed to how "bad" you say the uni's are.

Gold jerseys should just never happen. Horrible.

Agreed. Nothing about that combination looks right.

It needs some tweaking, but some gold in the jerseys would be ok by me.

Vinny Ceratto's idea of an offensive line?

I didn't know he understood the concept of an "offensive line." I just assumed he thought if he put a quarterback and some skill players on the field they'd automatically score touchdowns.

Yeah, they look worse in action than pictures I've seen. They looked like 1970s disco collars...and the black contrasts too much. Also, that washed-out gold does look like ballet panty hose. The Saints uniforms were completely ruined by Nike.


The Cardinals uniforms looked great.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Also, I noticed the Nike Swooshes are practically touching the numbers on the Saints. Sloppy.

So much for Nike being an upgrade to Reebok's blunders. They could redeem themselves if they can do the Colts shoulder stripes properly and consistently on all players, but I'm not expecting it.

I'm not seeing any difference really with the gold
