Report: NFL won't allow Saints to wear 'Color Rush' alternates vs. Vikings

According to The Athletic’s Katherine Terrell, the Saints requested special permission from the NFL to wear their “Color Rush” alternate jerseys against the Vikings, but were denied. New Orleans already hit the three-game limit for alternate uniforms in a single season, having previously worn their widely-loved gold-on-white duds in wins over the Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, and Atlanta Falcons. Now that the playoffs are upon us, the Saints must have argued that the alternate jersey rule only applies to the regular season; the No Fun League and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell must have disagreed.

Whatever

The color and design of your uniform doesn't make you run and catch any better on Sundays.

The Saints should do it anyway. What's Roger gonna do? Fine them? I'm sure they'd have no problem paying the money.

Research has shown that teams with lighter color uniforms get less penalties against them on average. This can’t overcome corrupt referees with preexisting gambling interests, but the lighter uniforms may help us with the minority or refs who are not on the take. I know people like the look of black uniforms better to stand outs, its like driving a fast car, but sometimes its smarter to drive the beige SUV and get less speeding tickets or wear the white uniforms and get less holding calls.
