New Jerseys are UGLY!!!

Recommended Posts

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.

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...

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.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
    • brrrr
      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
