Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

speaking of shiny helmets, when did notre dame ditch their classic helmets? they used to have more of a matte finish, i think it looked much better than the current helmets.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

I think I read somewhere that the Steelers are wearing their bumble bee uniforms against the Skins this weekend. Since the Skins will probably be wearing White tops on Gold bottoms, it will be weird to see two teams with gold pants on the field at the same time.

Yeah, that would be the only other team out there with gold/yellow pants.

I like the gold pants every once in a while but not every week.

it always pissed me off in various little league sports when the refs would say "gold" instead of "yellow".

i succumb to peer pressure and call our pants gold as opposed to yellow, but if that's gold, then what color are the saints pants? or the 49ers?

They recently scraped some gold off the golden dome tower when they replated (reguilded) it and mixed the flakes in with the paint...made the paint even more metallic than it had been before. They've always used the 24k gold flakes in the paint but they have a new batch of flakes and reexamined the painting process, because they weren't happy with the shade they had over the last few years.

boooo! i guess i didn't see any notre dame games last year, i didn't notice it until this season. i'm even less happy about it now that i know they discontinued the tradition of painting the helmets weekly.

and i'm not even a notre dame fan...

That may be the worst uniform in the history of organized sports (and I'm including Greek wrestling Circa 30 bc).

If we can't beat a team who're dressed like extras from a Blind Melon video, then WTF!!?!??!?!?

I was thinking that maybe it was a restroom on the Pittsburgh Light Rail.

More 'Throw Up' than 'Throw Back'.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Flo Rida just paid to have designed and donated uniforms to his Alma Mater. They could be the worst uniforms EVER.

This is also Santana Moss' high school!
