i hate the all black Mr. Hankie look.

Lets change the LSU uni's. those are old and out dated. how about bama, georgia and so on.

Anyone know were i can get an ole miss running rebel with the confederate flags?
Would like to see LSU do something with the helmet for sure; it has that committee/compromise look to it...

When looking for an Ole Miss Jersey, you're gonna when ask for one with "Dixie" on it...

Surprise you don't want a "Hotty Toddy" T Shirt...

Of all the infinite number of simultaneous universes in existence, in NONE of them is mustard an acceptable color.

I like the larger logo on the helmets but not the black facemasks. I like the gray better. The Saints just look better with white jerseys to me all around. I will never will be a fan of the all black uniforms. Not suprisingly, I really liked the all white they used to wear.

sorry to post twice in a row...
just went on nfl (dot) com to watch... I did not get to SEE the game this week - was forced to get updates on my phone - it sucked OK - it did - but it only happens about once a season or so - this was it (I hope)

any who --- I saw some highlight clips is all -

SHEEZE I LOVE the old Unis - and wish now - as I did then! (if only the gold pants MATCHED.) The numbers, the socks, the helmet, the pants four different "golds" in all.

Was Fabric printing that bad in the 60's? Actually, I think it was.

I lived in Pittsburgh for a year - and often quipped that there was only one black and gold - the "stillers" were black and yellow. But they (like us) have not changed that much - on fact - they accepted there yellow pants along time ago as gold - and said - YEA, WE ARE BLACK AND GOLD!

I admire teams that don't change there basic stamp. I hate it when these teams change there uniform year in and year out. Pick one - and then do it with pride. Atlanta Falcons (you are our age) - FU for changing your uniforms like three times. Tampa Bay - you are a little younger than us and We all give you a one time mulligan - New York Jets and Giants - thank you for going back.

Ours has barely changed since we started. I mean the TV thing made them all change the stripes on their shoulders to put numbers and logos in the easiest place to read them - the logo on the helmet didnt really change - it shrank a little bit - the fleur de lis is still intact. --- it is not like the boston patriots who now look like a bad rendition of the Nike Swish - or the Cincinnati Bengals (almost an AFL sister team) who look like rejects from a Duran Duran concert.

Gold isn't really a "color" as in on the color wheel but it seems like they could have gotten the manufacturers together - even back then.

but I think those stripes on the pants socks and arms make them look like football players not Lance Armstrong with shoulder pads - OK i am biased and much prefer the old school uniforms and HATE HATE HATE the modern unitards.

Football is a geometric grid like game. I like straight lines - these modern wispy curvy things that some teams are putting under there underarms - the swish like streaks that teams have turned their logos into - I hate it all.

but if I were my father he would hate that they have logos on their helmet at all.

but still...

... there are 6 or 7 teams younger than us - yes we are still young - but hey - in a 32 team league - that is a lot. I think it is terrific that teams take a game or two every now and then to flaunt their history.

and frankly I like ours. I have great memories of it - and yea we lost a lot - but we stuck with em - and it made watching the pigs fly that much sweeter.

I say wear em again.
