with Nike being so close, you have to figure Seattle mgmt had a hand in that. No way a company comes up with something so putrid on their own and just says "here you go"

Yeah, they must've expressed their desire to have a new outfit, so Nike was probably just doing what they wanted.

I never understood what that particular almost-neon green has to do with either Seattle or a seahawk.

That's exactly what happened.

The Seahawks organization wanted a change and, with Nike taking over the new uniform duties, they gave Nike the go-ahead to make drastic changes to the uniform.

All franchises own their logos and colors, so it has to be done with their permission. This is what perplexes me about the Saints' new cream color. Either the real color looks different on Nike's new material or, some kind of way, Nike got the actual color incorrect. This color is much more closer to Purdue's gold than it is Saints gold.

If it makes anyone feel any better, they even made the Browns' uniforms worse. I didn't think anyone could do that. +1 in the hate column.

I have been boycotting NFL gear off the rack for years. It's the national pass-time. Make them in the USA under good labor conditions and I will consider spending my hard earned money on them.

As for the look - not as bad as I feared. Not a fan of the uni-tard look.

The NFL Issue Uni are made in the US. All they other crap is made outside the US. When Starter was around they made the jersey and hats in New Haven Ct.

I like the all black and it is appropriate this upcoming year to look as we have been protrayed all dark and sinister. We will really be hated when we lead the NFC anyway.
