Are those lime-green racing stripes? XP

Good god, tell me they didn't pay someone for that design.

Well, at least we didn't look ridiculous losing.

Also, not the way to keep your job Matt, 5/9 with 2 picks? They're going to be demanding Locker replace you by mid-year, and the brutal first half of the season won't help.

Yawn. Another thread where old people shake their canes and get mad about uniforms looking interesting in any way.

Meanwhile, the menfolk will focus on football instead of fashion, and will point out that it was great seeing the Seahawks' first team kill Tennessee and Russell Wilson looked damn good in the second half, terrible decision/throw on that INT notwithstanding.

Well, they needed new uniforms, this way they'd have something else to wear when they play heritage games or whatever it is they call them. I do like the old helmets better though, everyone has a black or dark color helmet these days, it seems.

I didn't think they were that bad....

Since when did the Seahawks become the Oregon Ducks?

Translation: I am a Seahawks fan

The last Hawks kit was "interesting". This current getup is somewhere between Oregon-Awful and ArenaLeague WTF? levels of suck. Since you were so ready to bypass talking about the game itself in favor of Eastern Washington and their "OMFG THEIR RED TURF IS TEH AWESOMEZZZ!!" I think you can back off the hypocrisy a bit here.

Seattle's D played well vs. the Tennessee starters and Wilson had a very good debut. Looks like the Hawks may have a QB controversy afterall just not the one they may have thought.

So, given that this is apparently the only NFL thread that's popping up today... Andrew Luck looked freaking awesome earlier. I know that it was against the Rams, it was preseason, etc., but he looked like he'd been playing for a long time.

The Luck thread is due up this evening for some reason.

There's some sad things known to man but ain't nothing sadder than the tears of a clown when it's T.O. who's around.

Nike got to them first.

Wait till they get to the rest of the NFL.

Of course, Goodell probably won't let Nike go full Oregon on the uniforms, at least I hope not.

I was expecting to see a photoshop of the famous Wil Wheaton sweater.

Leaving disappointed.

I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I hate the Panthers new logo...

Looks like someone gave him a fat lip. If you're going to change a logo, change it! Otherwise, leave well enough alone.

HA! If I had Photoshop skillz, I would make that happen...unfortunately, I do not. Love the idea, though. :D

Boy, and I thought last season's uniforms were horrible-looking. Nice to know the Seahawks can always raise the bar.

/Raiders fan, no change in uniforms in 50 years, just the way I like it

I kind of miss the days of the old AFC West... from 1990-2000 or so (whenever the realignment occurred), they were the punching bag for the entire division. Le sigh.

The most noticeable thing about those to me is the Nike swoosh in the lime green shoulderpads. Wonder if Nike kicked in some cash to display that so prominently.

I like the new logo. The shape of it makes it stands out more, and removing the white from everything besides the eyes and teeth balances out the colors a lot better.

Personally I'd like to see a re-design of the Raiders logo. I don't mind tradition, but it's just so out of date.
 
2012-08-12 06:47:41 PM
You people need lives. Personally I like the fact that they gave up on "how many shades of blue/silver can we have" and are trying, albeit with a very...BRIGHT... green, to go back to the old days of blue, green and silver. Not that I don't think the Krieg-to-Largent uniforms were some of the best uniforms ever and all, but still, this is not a step back, and anyone comparing them to the Oregon Nikefellators needs to remember that the No Fun League doesn't allow for that much change in uniforms, ever.
 
2012-08-12 07:10:31 PM
Ish, your telling me they spent good money those things?

I have very little interest in Oregon football and/or uniforms, but that made me laugh. :)

It's like trying to polish a turd. The Panthers and that other cat-themed team from the south with the bad logo/colors. Same thing.

Let me clarify, it's really just that fat lip I don't like; the other stuff you mentioned I'm OK with.

While they're fugly, I do like the team name in their particular font and style on the shoulder. That's pretty cool.

Oregon and Nike have no place in Seattle. In fact, its an embarrassment to Seattle and a slap in the face to any Husky fan that the home town NFL team looks more like Washington's bitter rival than itself.

Neon colors are ok in soccer, they are ridiculous in the NFL, and Oregon can suck sh*t and die.

That's ok, that way it'll bother you less when they relocate.

Can't wait.

Here's to 5 new sets of home and away jerseys(looking forward to the Cardinals truck bed bottom pattern accents), 1 new set of home and away throwbacks, and how about an annual festive holiday theme set, I'm thinking like Columbus day themed for the MNF between the Texans and Jets. Each set running around $180

/Oh, they could do like a fashion show debuting the new uni's for the upcoming year.
//Show it opposite either the first day of the NBA finals or one of MLB's opening days.
/// ESPN will cover if it is vs. baseball, they could never not talk NBA
/// Just kidding ESPN would never say no to an opportunity to trot out Berman talking football in April unless it was

a) saying "kit" means your opinion should be ignored; soccer-fan-typing detected
b) I was praising the turf before there had actually been games played on it - we've already gone over the Seahawks uniforms months ago when they were announced. The men moved on with their lives, even if they didn't like it. The b*tches continue to b*tch.

The main problem I see with this logo is the whiskers on the right side of the face. Where are they coming from?
