Saints ruined their shade of gold. They need metallic-shiny pants. These look like ballet tights.



Jersey cut/collar looks horrible too.

i'm 5'10" about 175lbs and the nike game medium fits me perfectly
Both the game and limited... I haven't lifted for years but the sleeves are sewn too closely in... squeezes my lats and shoulders

Disappointing

I agree. I'm not a fan of those pants either.

yeah i don't like those collars either (chargers, our white jerseys, any team), should have requested same formatting as the packers did. but then again, the chargers had ugly collars before nike took over.

i wish we asked for what the packers asked for as far as nike collars. i really don't like the 2-tone on our white jersey

The white panels/outline on the bolts look horrible too.

The Packers just refused to use Nike collars and kept their own. Smart move.

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.
