    Does that mean having two complete different types of fonts for numbers for 1-9 on the same jersey was done because it was popular?

    In the same light, what are your sources? You are honestly among the first that I have heard complain about them.

    I prefer the high gloss helmets if I had to choose. I also dislike the new fonts not being the same on both numbers.

    Then again I had no problem with where they play either. To me it is football and the team is what is important, not the wrapper they put everything in.

    Then why were you so adamant about wanting an outdoor stadium?

    Pretty sure that was done to be unique. Pretty sure you also already knew that.

    I was being sarcastic.

    In other words, the Vikings didn't make the change to the helmets just because they thought they were popular, they may have made the change simply to be more unique.

    I posted replies from the day the uniforms were announced. More people disliked the matte look than liked it. I did not take a poll, and I have been unable to find a matte helmet poll done at the STrib or Pioneer Press.

    Some people like them. Some people don't. Can that be stated of the old helmet?

    I like the flat, blunt helmets. They fit the make up of the team. I like just about everything about the new uniforms, from what I've seen.

    I have yet to meet a Gopher fan who DIDN'T like their matte helmets. And they have a far more 'matte' finish than the Vikes do.

    Also, they factor in not only fan input, but players as well.
