    Re: Purple vs Green & Gold

    I like green but not Packers green...the Jets jerseys are cool.

    I'll take the Vikings colors and uniforms over the Pack anyday

    Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

    Vikings colors are reminiscent of Crown Royal

    Just an observation.

    Re: Purple vs Green & Gold

    green and gold look like poo, purple and gold is nice but to tell you the truth i miss the old vikes jerseys these ones are ok but i prefer the away jerseys rather than home and when we are home the purple on purple looks good so vikes win here in majority, besides i can't stand the color green because one of the few combos it goes well with are gold, yellow or black or white.

    Re: Purple vs Green & Gold

    What's funny is I actually like the Packers colors...I guess more of a nostalgia type thing...but when I see the Oakland A's wearing the same color scheme, I think it looks ugly.

    As far as the Vikes uni's/jersey's go, I will say that I actually liked their ORIGINAL uni's. I'm not a fan of seeing teams wearing purple tbh, but their original uni's looked nice. These new ones though give off an arena football type vibe and just look awful imo. Wish they never switched in the first place

    Quick note:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple

    In medieval Europe, blue dyes were rare and expensive, so only the most [size=11pt]wealthy[/size] or the aristocracy could afford to wear them. (The working class wore mainly [size=11pt]green[/size] and brown.)

    Europeans' idea of purple shifted towards this more bluish purple known as royal purple because of its similarity to the royal blue worn by the aristocracy. This was the shade of purple worn by [size=11pt]kings[/size] in medieval Europe.

    Re: Purple vs Green & Gold

    The Packers colors had potential to be better... but the two choices of green and yellow that they wear is ridiculous.

    They're both way too bright and really clash.


    Where we pair purple with mostly white... white clashes with nothing.

    Re: Purple vs Green & Gold

    I do like green only because it looks good on me and my son's school colors are green.

    But....purple is my favorite color.
