This is not just about "slight changes" to the uniforms. This is about changing the uniforms from game to game -- in one case (at MSU) between warm ups and the game -- just to create some business school ("bs") buzz so that they can be exploited to raise more money for the empire.
I agree that the arguments about whether Adidas' uniform from year whatever is better/worse than Nike's uniform from that other year are very tedious. But meddling by a marketeer over what many fans consider to be an iconic, traditional uniform is legitimately unsettling to fans and probably bad sports management.
Canham sold everything he could, but he never went this far and probably wouldn't have even if it had been suggested. There is a point where selling crap, or changing stuff so it can be resold again, simply cuts to the soul and I don't think it is wrong to say "I object."
