    Qstn. about Vikes Uniforms

    I have watched the Vikings for 20 years, since I was five years old. Unfortunately, I have never been able to see them play in Minnesota, only when they travel around where I live. Because they're road games, they wear their white uniform.

    I have a whole room in my house lined with authentic vikings jerseys from the late 90's through 2004. All the purple jerseys are the exact same color of purple, whether it's a starter, puma, or reebok jersey. Last season, the Vikes looked like they were the same color as all the jerseys, but in years past, both on TV and looking at pictures, they appeared to be a bluish purple. And sometimes they appeared to be almost straight blue. I have never owned or even seen a jersey that was any other shade of purple or blue, and I was wondering if anyone who has seen them play in real life has noticed a slight change in the jersey color? I have always been curious of this and the most common answer I have been told was that the lighting didn't capture their color well indoors.

    I never remember them modifying anything on the jerseys, or publicly announcing any kind of change. The last thing to change that I remember was in the mid 90's when they changed the stripe on the sleeve on the home jerseys. It went from many small stripes to only a couple (larger) stripes. But color-wise, I don't remember them, or anyone else for that matter, saying anything about even a slight difference.

    I've also noticed for some reason the purple uniforms come out looking really dark, almost blue sometimes on television. I've also noticed that the seats in the Metrodome look purple but in reality they are a dark blue. I guess since the colors are so similiar they start looking the same on the television.

    I don't know, I just have regular 32" t.v. and I always thought their uniforms looked purple to me. You can really see the contrast from purple to blue when they are playing the Giants.

    It is probably just light reflection etc. I have an authentic jersey and I am pretty sure that is what they wear in the games. it looks even more purple on an authentic jersey (up close) to me...
