    Ok, since this thread is about the helmet I hope this is the last uniform thread we get. We may have to make a new forum just for uniform talk.
    Just got back from MoA after purchasing my new jersey. At the Vikes store, they had both mini-helmets and full-size (but not real - although they were $299.99!!!!) ones.

    Two things:
    1. The "3d-ification" of the horns kinda looks dumb up close. I will reserve judgement on that until I see them in action.

    2. The paint has gotten sparkly. That could just be a part of these types and not part of the real deal.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I think the little bit of altering that they did do to the helmets made it stand out much better as a horn. They did a very good job overall with the new uniforms. I can't wait to see them on the field.
    Agreed, i think they did a great job, the helmet is still traditional, but modernized, excellent job boys(and girls).
    What exactly did they do differently with the helmets? Maybe it's my poor attention to detail, but I don't notice anything different about them.

    The sparkles are actually shredded up particles of razor sharp glass.

    Our team is outfitted with protectibve contacts.

    The theory is the glass will get into our opponents eyes rendering them blind.

    Don't tell anyone though.

    ITs very VERY subtle, but if you look at the new one compared to the old one you can tell it does in fact stand out a little more.

    I think it looks exactly the same. Oh well, maybe I need glasses. I once hurt my eye in a pickup football game in college and had to get it drilled into, had to wear an eye patch for a week, thought I was going to go blind until they drilled to let the blood out, but maybe that's finally catching up with me.

    BTW, I think they did a good job on the jerseys. I'm anxious to see the white jersey/purple pants combo. I think that's pretty sweet. Maybe an all purple one or two games this season would be good too.

    It could've been worse...we could've gotten this crappy design...

    Oh my word!! I think that if we went that route, I am taking the Viking flag off my house, selling my season tickets, and becoming a monk!! That is...nasty.
