    Re: what about the new uni's

    If it gets us to win the super bowl like Denver, TB and NE, I will love them, but if not, I like the old one's better.

    If they removed the side panel stripes, I'd be fine, but right now they look pretty bad.

    Re: what about the new uni's

    Why do the jerseys look blue? The shade of purple is much lighter now and at times looks blue. The helmets are still dark purple and look good, but I think the jerseys need some change. The jerseys would look much better if the purples were all the same.

    its the cameras at the metrodome.
    in the dome they look blue, sometimes when they play outside, they look more purple

    also, i never actually noticed the yellow collars untill someone mentioned them here.

    Re: what about the new uni's

    I think a lot of money was spent to make a tiny change, which means nothing except more marketing dollars
    for Reebok, Ridell and the NFL on the helmet.
    Brad Johnson's uniform jersey looks like it doesn't fit right and what's up with teh little "wedge design on teh pants rather than a full stripe or even a swoosh to line up with the yoke down the sides of the jerseys?

    Re: what about the new uni's

    It's as if they main objective was to differentiate themselves from the Ravens, which is stupid. Our colors are purple and gold not purple and white.

    They made a lighter purple, because a darker purple would be too much like the Ravens. and they used white to contrast from the black of the ravens. I really think that if you just put gold everywhere you see white it would solve the problem.

    Re: what about the new uni's

    We've had the discussion about theblue looking purples befoe, and the end answer is that purple is simply one of the hardest colors to reproduce digitally.
    We have had this problem for years, in the metro dome and out.
    They didn't make the purple color any lighter or darker than last year.
    It is the exact same purple.
    Take a new jersey and put it next to an old jersey and you will see.

    Personally I love the new jerseys.
    It was a minor change, but
    ithink a positive one.
    They look sharp on the field.
