Bring us a SB and I will always remember how great these uniforms look.
Bummer! I was really hoping the Vike's unis were going to be radically changed when nike took over the deal. I wonder if they will keep using the same style of throwbacks though, I would love to see the 90's style making a comeback.
One thing about the Nike uniforms I'm not diggin' is the lumpy thigh pads.
I was hoping they'd go with a darker shade of purple. The current shade is kinda weak and sometimes has a pinkish tint in certain light. The yellow would contrast much better against a darker shade of purple.
Apparently at least one site thinks out new Nike duds are looking pretty sweet. Ranked us as having the 9th best unis of the 32 new uniforms unveiled the other day...
Nike NFL Jerseys: Ranking New Nike Uniforms of All 32 Teams | Bleacher Report
I guess I'm probably in the minority when I say I've always liked our new Jerseys and was actually getting bored with the ones we had in the 1990's in my opinion. I totally like the idea of wearing the throwbacks a couple of times a year but for the most part I've liked our newer style jerseys better. Again just my opinion.
With the exception of Seattle, no NFL teams' uniforms changed all that much. I think the idea of our team with matching shoes and gloves will be pretty sweet, though it makes me wonder if one's going to be allowed to wear different cleats if they wish (e.g. one pair for astro turf, one for grass, etc.) or if the entire team needs to wear conforming gloves, shoes.
What i don't like is that they (Vikings + all other teams) knew of the jersey change coming up yet still for the whole season charged full prices.. that's horse shit. I don't like these jersey's, think the Reebok looked better.
I hate them. Saw them in the stores and almost puked. I won't get any. There is no players worth getting anyways.
