Letter to Roger

Dear Sir,

Two uniform ideas to consider:

Allow both teams to wear colored jerseys, if there is enough contrast between the two. Denver orange vs. Oakland black. Chiefs red vs. Colts blue. Before games were televised both teams often wore colored jerseys, but couldn’t once the games were broadcast in black & white. Now virtually all TV’s are color, so it’s time to make the game more colorful.

Many teams break out throwback uniforms once or twice a year, and look great. Have teams schedule throwback games against teams that can also wear throwback uniforms. Atlanta’s black throwbacks playing Tampa Bay’s “creamsickle” orange throwbacks, for instance. It wouldn’t be too hard for Nike to supply white throwback jerseys. When a team wears lovely throwback uniforms against another team’s modern-day uni’s (like the Seahawks) the throwbacks lose their luster.  

As a fan I applaud the NFL’s effort to make uniforms consistent from player to player.

I’m looking forward to another great season!
