Re: The Sports Puritan: I like sports uniforms Part I: NFL Helmet Rankings

1. New Orleans Saints: In one of those NFL-Network Top 10 shows, they talked about the all-time worst individual seasons. One of them featured the expansion Saints, who would continue their futility for 20+ years. Bill Bergey, a former Linebacker for the Eagles, made an unfortunate and self-revealing speech about the Fleur-de-Lis on the side of the Saints lustrous helmet, exclaiming: “I used to wanna just knock that thing off the side of their heads, what is that thing anyway?” Well, Bill, it represents many things dating back to the Middle Ages, but currently, its the official symbol of one of the great cities in America. The franchise made a brilliant choice in using the symbol of French royalty, and its one of those helmets that we will never see change, as the team is so much a part of the city’s identity. When I was a lad, I drew this logo as often as possible, and I wished good fortune for the Saints as long as it didn’t interfere with my beloved Browns. I wish I was still a kid.

Ahhhh, the Browns who have nothing on the sides of their helmets and no reason for anyone to knock it off of them anyhow. And yep I'm a Browns fan too 'cept when they play the Saints of course. I liked the old brighter gold helmets.

Pretty good list. And he is correct in the fact that there are certain helmets that will never see much change.

I'm probably one of the few too who likes the old cream Buccaneers' uniform more than the crap they're wearing nowadays.

Many of the throwbacks are better than what the teams are using now, but it's all marketing and merchandising, so in a way it's understandable that teams try to follow trends to appeal to new (younger) fans.
