    OK, the "blue" uniform thing comes up all the time, and it has more to do with the way the color purple is digitized than with the actual color of the jerseys. It is an error in the broadcast signal that is actually fairly hard to correct, and in preseason they very rarely spend the time and money to correct it live. Replays are often corrected, as it is a smaller effort to correct ten seconds versus a whole game.

    When we get to the regular season Fox and the NFLN do a good job of correcting live, but CBS is often poor.

    The helmets and uniforms are not mismatched when you see them in person.

    I actually love both the jerseys and the helmets. I would've preferred we went to the throw back jerseys, but I like the look of the new numbers and the helmets are awesome!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I don't need to see them live to see there's a clusterfuck of a mismatch between the number fonts. It looks terrible period!

    To be fair I recorded the rebroadcast of the game that aired on Saturday night and the colors were a much closer match than the live game was whether it was because I watched it on a different TV or they fixed the color.

    But you just can't fix that terrible font situation.

    The jerseys are boring. I don't like the numbers, the jersey itself is ok. I like the glossy helmet of old better than the matte finish helmet they have now.

    BTW, color look different in different lighting. Colors on material even if you get them close are going to look different than color on hard surface. I think it is partly how light reflects off the surface. This isn't a physics lesson by any means, just something I have noticed over the years.

    Me too. They're unique. The unusual styling is not overdone. Some number combinations work better than others, but I don't think any of them are really bad.

    As far as the color goes, I think it's going to look different in natural light. Under the dome lights you see a reflection of separate light sources, which creates light spots and dark spots. They match better in all the camp photos I've seen.

    The font and styling for the number is wonky, it works for some numbers like 88 or 66 but looks messy say 11. 14 or 25 (second number having sharper angles on the left). It also reminds me to much of euro soccer or hockey jerseys and makes me think the next move it to stamp Lada or Skoda somewhere on them.

    Purple is an odd color. Looks different in different formats. Its been that way since the 60's. I can remember old posters of Gilliam and Page. One looked dark purple, almost navy blue, the other was a plum color.
    I've been a Viking fan since I was just out of diapers, hopefully we get Super Bowl win before I go back in 'em.
