April fools joke on the first line?

Do not mess with the horns on the helmet, obviously. We have the perfect helmet logo. A matte finish on the helmet was brought up in an article I read on another site. I'd like to see that. It would be unique, it looks pretty cool on some college uniforms, and if we go retro on the jersey, it would better match the deeper shade of purple. Grey facemasks would be great for home, but I'm not so sure how the grey facemask would look with the away uniforms. Though I suppose they could always swap them out from week to week.
Some sort of horizontal striping on the socks. Not necessarily all three colors, but something.
How about we bust out the throwbacks?

It would have been if I didnt add the second line but the shitstorm that would have caused would have not been worth it. I think the matte helmets would look great.

I like aspects of both the Baker designs...the darker, matte purple helmet and jersey are cool, kinda simplified and old school, and I kinda like the grey pants too. But, I also like the Norseman on the shoulders and think that should return. The gold pants are OK but a bit much, maybe we should go back to white with a wide purple stripe flanked by thin gold stripes outside, straight down the sides...or add the gold-purple-gold stripe to the dark grey pants.

I would like to see a Viking battle ax emblazoned on each ass cheek so when the O and D line are in the three point stance they look ready for battle. LOL
I actually really like the Matte purple finish.

The matte purple seems to reflect that. The darker shade brings back the old school 70's days of the PPE, combined with the modern design of the horn and the newer helmet.
As well, the colourless horn looks real old-school. Kind of reminds me of the old-school Rams helmets with the blue and white horns. http://www.sportsblink.com/product_i...et-3350226.jpg

Any uni for the vikes needs the Norseman or it is sh!!t. again, IMO
I think it needs the yellow too. I guess you could call it a "fastener" that's keeping the horn attached to the helmet?

I like the norseman too, but it's kind of a large logo(perhaps that's why they reduced the logo height when they made those minor changes.) I'm not sure I'd want to see them on the sleeves, maybe something on the hip.
I like these.

I'd be very happy with that, with the aforementioned darker shade of purple and matte helmet. They're vintage inspired with the striping and simple. I'm not sure what's up with the seams on the jersey in that picture, maybe they're supposed to show that they'd be form fitting? Not a big concern, as I assume the jersey won't be made from vaccuformed plastic lol.
