Maybe they will grow on me, but good God, those are pathetically bad.
OT: New Tampa Bay Bucs Uniformz
Is there ever a new uniform that MGoBlog likes? The Ermahgerd Uniformz take is kind of trite.
For the most part, I like oregon's jerseys. I liked the first time Maryland came out with the slit flag uniforms. The army/navy alternates are always badass. The Vikings jersey in the NFL, Nike didn't mess that up.
I am a huge advocate of the Sugar Bowl uni's. And loved the under the lights ones. Also, the throwback MBB jerseys from last year were sick. Red Wings winter classic was a win.
So yeah. I like new uniforms. Unless they suck. These suck.
The new helmet started strong. Then the jersey just made them XFL caliber.
That's the first thing I thought when I saw the jersey. Can't say it's an upgrade at all. They had a pretty good jerseys before, why change them?
it is what Nike does. Its a step backwards for Tampa in my opinion.
I've seen worse.
Why change them, they fixed them already.
Their 80s uniforms were God-awful, and then they did a terrific job with the new ones. They went from my least favorite to my favorite uniforms in the NFL in one step. And now they get rid of them? And for that???
Hate the huge helmet logo. Give them a normal sized helmet logo and non-stupid numbers and I wouldn't hate it at all. The orange is a nice touch and goes well with the colors they have now. But as it is now it looks like the godless love child of Arena Football and the XFL.
Agreed, the logo needs to be reduced by 30%. It's a ziggy logo, way oversized to rest of area.
In all fairness, this is already better than than the alternate uniform design they didn't go with...
I'm sure someone more talented than I can do this with a football jersey
just scream out "SWASHBUCKLING" and "PIRATES", don't they?!!
They actually mention in the article that the font/numbers are "inspired" by the blade of a sword. I dont mind the overall theme (love the big logo) of the uniform but its dumbass details like the numbers with the hard-to-see-numbers-because-we-shoehorned-a-fancy-pants-idea that get me and say...no. Just no.
They look more like they were inspired by a calculator display.
... as interpreted by some dork who thinks he speaks "Klingon."
If they're going to wear these atrocities, they should just bring back the goddamn creamsicle unis.
The numbers also apparently have reflective accents. So, no flash photography, please.
Yea I like change but that's bad. Please don't allow this NFL
Ehh, as a Bucs fan, I liked what they had before. Why change what was already a good thing? And why add those creamsicle stripes? All that color reminds me of is utter futility with that organization.
I like the darker coloured Pewter. I could do without the orange stripe and the numbers are look atrocious. also they should've changed the logo altogether or left it alone. Using the same one but enlarging it is silly.
The Orange kills it. Do better Tampa Bay.
Beats the all orange, creamsicle unis from the day.
Of course, they won a Super Bowl in those orange things. Just sayin' Lions...
The 2002 Buccaneers most-certainly never wore orange jerseys.
Thank god another team is going to the color black with their uni's. I'm sure the Bengals, Eagles, Panthers, Saints, Ravens, Steelers, Falcons, Raiders, Cardinals, Jaguars and sometimes Lions were feeling lonely.
Amazingly, only 2 teams - Packers/Jets - use green.
Silver? Only Lions/Cowboys/Raiders/Panthers
Gold? Saints/Rams/Niners/Jaguars (kinda)
The bucs were the only team with that rust/chromish, brown/silverish color, and now they scrap (pun) it... Totally lame.
Apparently it isn't black. It's their traditional pewter. the picture just doesn't show it very we'll with the black background.
Patriots also wear silver helmets and pants.
but i agree with the arena league look of the jerseys,
I think it would look way better with a different number type
I don't want Michigan to change their football jersey design, but idgaf about NFL teams. I think these look sweet except for the numbers.
they might look cool, but that shaded in shoulder thing makes it look cheesy, plus the helmet, yeah, too much.
The previous ones were much better.
If you get rid of the orange stripe on the jersey and change the number font they wouldn't be awful. But I actually really liked their previous uniforms so I don't really understand the need for change. And if you have to change the helmet why not just get rid of the flag and put the skull and cross bones on there?
I suppose these wouldn't be as "ugh" if the helmet logo were somewhat smaller and the numbering were something not reminiscent of my bedside alarm clock. Actually, the more egregious thing to me is the digital look, if you can call it that. It really does ruin it for me. As others said, as they are, I would think these were XFL or Arena League if the Buccaneers logo (plus the fact that the impending change was known) weren't a dead giveaway.
I'm still partial to the inaugural Tampa Bay uni's. The helmet logo was fantastic.
Those looked like they combined Alabama and Tennessee's colors and made them one uniform. Bad.
I became a fan when I was young just because of that helmet.
This looks like one of those uniforms worn during the "future football" game in Starship Troopers.
was so damn hot in that movie.
So can you reprogram the numbers?
so of course their asswipe marketing geeks decided they needed changing, because revenue streams.
No to the faux-LCD numerals. I know what those are supposed to look like and those are dumb. The tan dark areas are a color that should be on a Siberian apartment building not American football uniforms.
Turrible, turrible, turrible
Bring back the originals..... That's the only way people on here would be happy right?? Bucks must be in orange!!!!
Bucs*** stupid iPhone
ugly... Step up from the 70's, that is about it.
I think they'd look good if they just changed the numbers from Digital Alarm Clock font to normal numbers. I mean, they could've gone with the college fb uniforms that e-wizard keeps churning out
(That's for Boston College by the way. Boston College...University)
Love that this thread was started by a guy with the ultimate warrior as his avatar. Nope, no costumed excess there!
It's times like these that reaffirm my love for the Illitches'.The Tigers and Wings have two of the best/classicest (not a word, but should be) uniforms in sports and they have been left mostly unchanged for decades. I used to be able to say that about Michigan football... thanks Brandon.
I can't wait till the corporations get so powerful they can sponsor entire countries. Let's see what Nike can do with the Stars and Stipes. I'd love to see Under Armour's take on Libya and Reebok's take on Japan. Come on corporations, jazz these boring, old flags up!
out of eleventy-billion stars.
