Blue Falcon 0 Share this post tjpskillz34 Redskins white-on-white By Blue Falcon, August 21, 2006 in Sports Logo News Blue Falcon Members The white/white is very sharp in my opinion. It gives the entire look a little more modernity, as the helmet preserves the classy tradition of the uniform.

Just a thought, but since is the team is called the Redskins, I’m surprised they haven’t tried an all burgundy uniform at least once. I mean it would fit their name if they did dress in all one color.

I mean it. While I love my team, it?s painful to look at those unis. Jerry Seinfeld once famously said that you ?root for laundry? in sports. The jersey. The uniform. The players will always change, but the uniforms stay the same. At least the classics do.I think the burgundy pants and white tops are classics. Sue me.I would be somewhat more okay with a uniform change, if at least it was a well thought out change. One that real professionals were in charge of. This is not that. This is guys just saying: ?Hey, let?s mix and match the pants and shirt! Cool!?Think I am over-reacting? Fine. But ask any Packer fan how they would feel if the Pack went ?green-on-green.? Or how about the Cowboys shunning the silver pants for white-on-white? Trust me. You would be just as pissed off.The pants change was SUPPOSED to be good luck on the 5-game run at the end of last year. Fine. That luck is gone. Somebody, please, stop the madness.Where?s Bubba Tyer when you need him?? 2 Posted August 22, 2006 Location:Sacramento, California 940 posts Share on other sites 0 ROCHitman Buc 2,894 posts Posted August 22, 2006 Link to post 0 Redskins white-on-white FiddySicks Location:Lanham, MD Link to post Link to post Share this post Guys you do know they changed to all white to appease Clinton Portis who does’nt like the white stripped socks.

He thinks white stripped socks makes him look slow, Portis that is. Gibbs is being WAY too much of a nice guy, and this is pure madness to change the team uniforms just because one screwball player doesn’t like how his socks look!!!! THIS IS THE NFL, CLINTON!!!!Gibbs is also to blame for the white-on-white thing, because he said it makes the players look bigger. So friggin’ what?? Gibbs should be forced to wear the same damn underwear for every game too…and if they lose he doesn’t get to wash them. 0 0 3,787 posts 0 The artist formally known as Bucfan56 ThePonderer Posted August 22, 2006 Link to post 40 Link to post 3,274 posts (edited) Just go back to the 70th Anniversary home jersey and create a companion road set. Agreed! (Although not with that FSU look–can’t have a team I don’t even like looking like my blood NCAA football team, even if a former head coach of theirs was once the quarterback of my blood NFL squad. Two gold starts to whoever can guess the right answer to that one…)FSU look aside, that 70’th anniversary edition was the best look they had. Keep the burgundy dome, either with the current logo, script “R” or encircled “R”, go back to the 70th-anniversary burgundy tops, create a corresponding white shirt, then devise the yellow pants they used with the 70th anniversary set to be used with either jersey–or, if they must, devise a burgundy set of pants to correspond to the yellow ones.But…AGAIN…this is all just one man’s opinion…my two rusted Lincolns.

Sure, they won 6 straight in those unis last year…they also got knocked out of the playoffs wearing them. And they won 3 Super Bowls in white-on-burgundy.Many people wanted a return to the burgundy-on-yellow from the 70s or the spear helmet uni…not one voice supported the all-white uni, and many of them said they just look like practice uniforms.Hope Gibbs gets the message… Share on other sites 10,716 Sign in to follow this Share this post 0 0 leopard88 0 Favourite Logos:The Commodore. The Redskins White Jersey Burgandy pants look is the best damn look in any sport IMO. I was so bummed to see the Skins wear the all white look so often last season. Honestly, that combo is one reason that I like the Skins as much as I do. Its nostalgic, and im a sucker for nostalgia.

The white-on-white has run its course. Besides, the team is known as the “burgundy & gold” and it’s hard to fathom a look in which both of the signature colors are trim colors.I also hope we NEVER see burgundy-on-burgundy. I am of an all-ecompassing view that ALL dark-on-dark and monochromatic uniforms are ghastly of the highest degree. Nobody has pulled it off. Nobody. Not even the Seahawks.If you’re not wearing white jerseys, the number of colors of pants that make sense to me is limited — white, silver, gold, yellow and orange. Location:City of Champions and the Pirates I hate white on white for any NFL uniform. It is just a personal preference, however. I’ve come to accept it for those that “traditionally” have gone with white on white, like the Colts. Overall, I’ve always thought that that white on white looked “soft” for some reason. Again, it is mostly a matter of personal preference. rack me 0 0 Posted August 22, 2006 hormone 8 6 I don’t think they should get rid of the white/white combo, but they should adjust how they are using it. Take a page out of the Miami Dolphins’ book and use them seperate for home and away. When they are on the road, use the white/white. But when they are in DC, they should definitely wear the white/burgandy as their “home combo”. I know the Dolphins normally do all white @ home and then wear the teal pants on the road. I think it’s sharp!Thoughts? Sports Logos BBM I am anything but a Redskins fan, but count me as a fan of the white-on-white. I think it looks very sharp.As a general rule, I dislike football uniforms with pants that are darker than the jersey (gold, yellow, silver and pewter excepted, because they are fairly light colors (well, except for pewter anyway)). The burgundy pants are just another example of that that has never worked for me.
