    Polls - New Hemets and New Fonts!

    OK, so I started two polls regarding the matte finish on the new helmet as well as the new number font. They can be found here:

    Do you like the new number font on the new Vikings Jerseys?

    Do you like the matte finish on the new Vikings Helmets?

    I put them in pollcode so they could be shared outside of PP.O. Feel free to share these links - I am curious about the general feelings regarding the helmet and fonts.

    For reference, here are some pics.

    The poll is missing the option of "love/like/dislike/hate the font, don't care that there are two different types".

    I was going to vote for like.... but I want to wait until I see the full uniform on the field during the first game of the year. I believe that only then will I be able to get the real feel for it. However, so far I like the look.

    Yeah, I agree with HEY. I'm honestly 'Meh' on the fonts. I think on some number combinations the serif from the first number works really well with the second (like AP's 2 and 8). But when the second number is a straight edge number (like a 1), the serif looks awkward.

    I'm totally fine with the new uniforms, actually like them a lot... even the fonts. Just want football to begin already.

    Yes, that's what I also thought when I first saw the picture of all the Vikings' first round picks together. I'm looking forward to see all the players.

    Considering this is probably just hardcore fans voting it looks like the font was a mistake and the helmet is more than average favorable but if it is just Vikings fans voting I would expect positive to overwhelm negative if it was done right.

    Where is the ' Worrying about what the team wears is a waste of time' option ?
    Good thing it weren't up to me or they would be wearing purple bib overalls and the cheerleaders, halter tops and hot pants !

    Change that to tube tops and you get my vote.

    I'm sure Loadholt would appreciate those extra buckles.

    Probably locked away with the "I don't care where they play" option for those who could watch them play in a pole shed and have just as much fun because it is the candy they enjoy and not the wrapper.
