Those things are just plain ugly....let's call it the way it is.

Things have gotten a whole lot more sophisticated on the uniform design front since those antiques came out. :D

Lots of replies. Thanks folks. My take on the NFL throwback uniforms is this. GET RID OF THEM! Teams should stick to 2 sets of uniforms one for home games and one for road games and maybe one alternate set. Quit Alienating the fans NFL with these crazy throwback uniform designs and let's keep things in the 21st century now. Thanks for all the replies.

Maybe they should ahve called them NFL Throwaway uniforms...used in one more game and then they're trashed. :D

Not by all that much and not with many votes....maybe people are so turned off they don't even want to vote or discuss it. :D

If 13-14 people suddenly voted no...then the % would actually turn in the other direction...

Not exactly a tidal wave of support.

Ah, the old "silent majority" argument, an oldy but a goody. ;)

Approx. 2/3 voted "Stay", I'd say that's a pretty clear majority. The other 1/3 are probably Broncos fans. :D

As I've told my wife, don't ask a question if you don't want the answer.

Are we really "spinning" the results of a silly NFL throwback uniform poll? !rolling

Don't worry all you "dislikers" out there - it's a one-season thing and then only to commemorate special games. :sure:

I don't know about that. The Steelers have been doing it for a few seasons now and the Chargers have been doing it for longer than that. I think wearing throwbacks is up to the team (with league approval).

And the "special games" are primetime games. There is clearly an aspect of this that is a merchandising money grab by the NFL, but that's cool - they are a business after all, and in business to make money.

And I'm sure that when they did a poll in those states, they voted to keep wearing the civil war uniforms!;)

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.


This. ^
The Eagles and Jets throwbacks are awful also.

Go Steelers!!!

Hmmmm, saw the Jets road throwbacks yesterday, they aren't nearly as ugly as the home jerseys.

I loved the Bucaneers' orange "creamcicle" uniforms that they wore a couple of weeks ago. Sure, they lost all their games one season in those unies but they also went all the way to the conference championship game in them a different season.
