The Uniform Issue

I had watched a commercial for Madden '08 where they had Reggie Bush in the game. I had noticed that the team's gold pants was missing that familiar solid black stripe down the middle. I was wondering if this is there official uniform config or that was just for the game.

Speaking of pants, I wonder if the might come out with white pants (something the team hasn't worn since the '85 season) without the stripes.

Throwback idea: Since this will be the Saints' 20th Anniversary of their first winning season (1987), I wonder if they would break out the '86 unies for just one game.

One note: Those black pants the team wore in 1999 (the one with the gold stripe) was "UGGALEE!!!". Thank God they didn't bring them back!!

You do know you can change the style of the uniforms in the game right.

I remember the year the Texans came out, those rendered Madden unis looked way better than the official ones. The Saints players prefer all black.

You know, now that I think about it if memory servers me correct I don't think the game allots for you to edit the pin stripe

Maybe that’s why you can’t see the black pin stripe
You only have 3 strip types to choose from on the pants

Haz used to say the opposition couldnt tackle us as well when we had the all black unis, due to them being tighter. What a crock of crap. LOL!

AWESOME!! I thought they looked awesome last year with all black. I think the helmet should go black as well and make the fleur bright gold!! But thats just me. ;0)

I too noticed the stripe-less pants in the commercial. Truthfully, Saints uniforms in games are always wrong for some reason. Year after year I'll catch an error here or there.

I thought the all-Black was the best look. It is my favorite look in any uni. I like the Grambling All-Black also.
