    Black & Blue.........as in the black & blue division.


    Why only two choices? Where is "OTHER"?

    There is no "other" because "other" is a cop out. I have seen black and gold vikings jerseys, but I have seen blue, that's for sure.

    The other is not a cop out. The yellow & black ones you saw were based of old style jerseys from 2 or more years ago.

    Remember the gold & black Moss jerseys?

    So if they were to come about, they'd be redesigned by the team anyway.

    That being said, any color is game.

    Re: Alternate

    black would look much more intimidating and I think would be the best choice.
    When I knew the Vikings were getting new jerseys i was hoping for some black if not mainly black.
    I think it l;ooks sharp along with purple and gold as well.

    Red.

    Re: Alternate

    How about a throwback? And make them permanent not alternate.... I liked the new jerseys at first, but Ive realized how much better I like the old ones, especially the old road ones. The old look is just so much more classic looking.

    But I understand thats not going to happen, but one thing that could happen, and should happen is we completely eliminate the purple pants. The white on white looks a million times better.
    Old Away:


    New Purple Pants Away:


    New White Pants Away:



    It's clear that white on white is better, and we play better while wearing it.

    Because a throwback is a throwback & an alternate is an alternate.

    If you wear it on the field for a game and it's not your standard uniform isn't it considered an alternate?

    "The NFL rule states that a team may wear their third jersey only twice a year. There are no rules on wearing alternate pants."

    So we could wear white pants every game!

    Don't they still have a "Throwback" day?

    Irregardless what I'm trying to say is that the 3rd jersey could be either a throwback or an alternate jersey. To me they are two different things.

    I guess I was just talking about third jerseys as a general topic, you were being more specific... whatever though, it doesn't matter at all.

    And as far as throwback day goes, I think they just do that for the 4 teams playing on thanksgiving.
