How many of you are tired of tuning into an NFL Game only to see some teams wearing throwback uniforms? I know the NFL is allowing teams from the old AFL Days to wear there throwback uniforms but come on this is really getting ridiculous all these throwback uniforms, and how about those bright green Seattle Seahawks uniforms they wore week 2 against the Chicago Bears. So my question is simple. NFL Throwback Uniforms, Stay or Go?

I like the concept so much that I even like the ugly uniforms just for the novelty of it.

Of course some teams haven't been around long enough to have any throwbacks like the original AFL teams do... but I like it.

It also is probably good for the economy to be able to sell a whole bunch more replica throwback jerseys.

I've also liked the pink in the for-cancer promotions this year too.

make the fans also wear 60's style or early 70's bad polyester cloths too! If too young too have their own, just raid their parents closets.

Stay / Don't Care

I don't watch football because the uniforms look pretty.

Wonder if they'll ever really wear throwback uniforms and go with the old leather helmets one week! :eek2:

I like the Steelers throwbacks so I voted "Stay".

Denver's throwback uniforms where hideous last night though, in stark contrast to the still very stylish Chargers uniforms.

The Seahawks lime green uniforms are not throwbacks, they were using the third color in their color scheme which is allowed under the rules. This is similar to Miami's orange jerseys, which I like.

Also, I think that Seattle's lime green jerseys were in direct response to the Seattle Sounders FC soccer club, which was very popular in its inagural season this year.

Heck, I kinda like the Seahawks lime green jerseys. :)

I Think we could start another poll, called maybe "ugliest uniforms ever". My nominations would be the aforementioned Seahawks lime greens, the Jets throwbacks, and the Broncos throwbacks.

I love the "barf" emoticon, I'll be using that one in the future. :D

The Steelers throwbacks from the 40's were hideous too (they had a castle on the helmets). I was really glad when they switched a couple of years ago to their current throwbacks which are from the '62 season.

I like the Kansas City Chiefs/Dallas Texans throwback uniforms. Pretty cool.

Voted stay.

I wish the Patriots would get rid of their CURRENT uniform and go back to the throwback.

Respectfully disagree...If you've followed the Pats as long as I have, you'd realize NOTHING good happened in those red uniforms! I keep looking for Steve Grogan to take the field....
