New Jerseys are UGLY!!!

18 posts in this topic

I saw the new jerseys when they came out this spring and thought they were OK. A little too busy for me but not as bad as they could have been. At least they left the horns on the helmet. But catching them in action for the first time last night in the first pre season game I thought they were some of the worst in the league!!! The biggest problem for me is the purple color they chose. What happened to the dark royal purple from the 60s 70s and 80s???? It was almost a navy blue back then. This new brighter, lighter purple SUCKS!!! They look like a bunch of lilacs running around out there. If it were up to me we would go back to the 60s look with purple pants on the road. I can't believe the number of the teams that have ruined the look of their jerseys. (Broncos, Bills, Bengals, Cardinals, Lions, Seahawks) There have been a few that have improved (Giants, Rams, Bucs) but I just hate when they throw all of the tradition out the window just to sell jerseys to all the fans that have to have the new one.

While I'm ranting, what's up with our field turf? It looks brown. The end zone writing is crap too. You can hardly read it. Why not put Minnesota in one EZ and Vikings in the other so the letters can be visible instead of cramming both into each EZ??? I swear the Vikings are trying to make the dome look as junky as possible just to get us to build them a new one.

I like the jerseys, reminded me of the Broncos jerseys.

The turf is going to look awkward during preseason. I'm sure they haven't taken out all the kinks yet because of baseball. They probably just slapped something together so they don't have to work as hard when the Twins have their next game...

Personally I kinda liked the jerseys myself. As for the turf and the dome...Its always been crap.

Look at the bright side. Almost every team that changed their long-standing jersey went on to either play in or win the Superbowl for the first time: Buc's, Bronco's, Rams, Seahawks

I can tell you one jersey I wouldn't go with. # 81 What a loser. Maybe they didn't give him enough money. Glad there are kids that pay attention to football and have heros hopefully none for this clown. Sorry to get off the subject here, I do like the new look too.

You know maybe the new owner and coaches have to make examples of this team. If your going to act like teen-agers so be it. Bring on the baby sitters. I have five girls of my own and can find time during the football season to be a baby sitter/taxi driver. Heck I would do it just for free tickets!!! Maybe the owner should just buy a bus and shuttle the boys back and forth to the bars. No wait then we would end up having the "Love Bus scandles". I sure wish I made 1/2 the money some of these football players make. Abviouslly these player think they are better then most people and the laws of America don't apply to their calibur of talent. Like I said in an earlier post some of these guys are just great role models for our kids growing up. I believe there shouldn't be three chances given to a star role model. What a joke. Hey Koren maybe the CFL will be looking for your top talent. You and the wiz kid can be roomys. Bring back Moss maybe he has grown up enough and has leared from his mistakes.

I agree about the home jerseys. I hate the new purple, too many colors on the jersey. The pants I hate the purple swoop. Only thing they did right on is purple pants on the road.

Sorry, but watching the game last night I though those purple pants were the ugliest thing I've seen in a long time....

I don't care for the new jerseys...kind of ugly, I think. Maybe they'll grow on me. I'll give 'em a chance.

I always liked the all-white road uniforms...the white pants with the white jerseys looked good. I think the Vikes and the Chiefs were the last teams to have all-white road uniforms. Shame to be going away from that. The purple pants suck.

After seeing the road whites I like them better then the old unis. I think they should go with the roads at home too like the cowboys, redskins, and panthers.

No -- they need to stick with purple at home. Nice to have a little color out there.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.

      I'm thinking the opposite could be happening. Some people are doing fairly good and they are not saying anything. Last year a person I know did real good over 1 mile from anyone and called one friend with the coordinates of where to meet him in 2 days. He got back in 2 days and found over 30 wheelhouses right on his coordinates. His one friend that he told had then told another friend who told another friend and on and on. The key to ice fishing URL has always been to stay away from the crowds but now a good report brings in a crowd. Some of the business have decided that fewer fishermen having good fishing could be a better long term plan then many fishermen having poor fishing so they are not reporting good fishing.   Me, I think the fishing this winter is far better then last winter. Most of the people fishing URL now learned to fish URL by going deeper and deeper for the crappies. Before the crappie boom very few fishermen went deeper then 10 feet of water for walleyes. If we got into crappies or perch we knew we were too deep for the best walleye fishing. Most of my fishing this year has been in 8 feet of water or less. But also I'm standing outside and not sitting in a house. On URL you will usually get 4 or 5 times more fish standing outside or in a portable then you will in a house. I think it is from the noise or vibrations. shaky and Doc could set their house in 6 feet of water and do very good but they fished very quietly.  When fishing they had no radio or TV turned on, no generator, stepped softly and talk in whispers,,,,and they caught a lot of fish. I've sat with a camera and watched walleyes spook away when the heating stove ignited, when I dropped a rod on the floor and when I slid a chair across the floor. That is why all of our rental houses had a rubberized floor, to dampen the noise. Every year more and more people are fishing in houses rather then standing outside or in portables and I wonder if that isn't going to change how many fish are caught for each hour of "fishing pressure"/angler hours.  Sure it is nice to sit in a warm house watching TV while fishing but at least on URL I think you will also catch less fish. It will interesting to see if the DNR creel census starts to show a lower catch per hour as the percentage of people fishing from wheelhouses increases.
