i like the redskins' jersies the best personallly....i love the maroon and yellow


as far as Chiefs uni's....although i am WAY in the minority on this one....id atleast like to see them wear different uni's a few times a year like the bills did a few years ago...

but i would like to see more yello, with touches of black....so basically just adding yellow and a tiny bit of black like a stripe down the pant or something..

DONT CHANGE HELMETS! OR LOGOS!!

01-21-2009, 11:52 PM
I say keep everything the same.

cept I wouldnt mind seeing just a lil bit deeper of a red, kinda of like the OU sooners.

Just a lil touch.

And now that I think bout it, change our yellow to more gold. I know they say its gold, but sorry, its yellow.

Just a lil color tweeks is all id want if we "did" modify.

I'll agree somewhat with those thinking about it. I'd go for maybe some added stripes like teams are doing. Def. leave the helmets the same but the solid red on solid white or just solid white could use some flash. It even be nice just to see the "alternative" uniforms be used on occassion.

I say keep them the way they are BUT I think it would be GREAT to see a red top red bottom combo once or twice a year.

ATM we have
Red top White Bottom
White top Red Bottom
White top White Bottom

I really really think a Red top and Red bottom would be the change a lot of people are looking for without changing the actually look or design or the Uni's them selfs.

I wouldn't mind seeing them incorporate a light smoke or brown pewter to represent pipe smoke or buckskin in the uniforms while using the red, yellow and white like war paint on the unis in a well designed pattern.

While I'm all for tradition, the franchise is obviously going through a HUGE transition when you look at the stadium, ownership and management and there is something to be said about each era having its own look or identity. This basid uniform has gone the better part of fifty years without a Super Bowl appearance. Why not change it? It's not like this uniform is a reminder of great things from the past.

I made a thread about this last year and got shot down by everyone but I would still like to see them 1. Incorporate the red pants with the red tops for a game or two 2. wear their white pants on the road more often and 3. maybe change the yellow to gold like the Rams did, after all, we are red and gold not red and yellow. I always thought the yellow looked a bit tacky.

chiefnut
01-22-2009, 06:22 PM
except for the stripes on the pants they have not changed much since super bowl I, let's keep it that way. the coolest lookin uniforms won't make us play any better anyway.

Nel Toille

You say that but history tells a different story. For some reason, most every team I can think of that has changed uniforms has played better since the uniform change: Tampa, Denver, Atlanta, St. Louis, Seattle, New England, Arizona (though the last few teams I mentioned took a few years). The only exception is the Chargers. They've been worse since they've switched uniforms but that could have more to do with Norv Turner.

Let's look at teams that "changed" their uniforms, and their performance after.

Atlanta: Red & Black -> Black & Black/Red, they made it to the superbowl under reeevs and lost. that was several years after glanville made the uni switch

Seachickens: Blue, Emerald Green & White, to Grey Blue, emerald green, neon green and white. That uni change was done to coincide with the conference change. Playoffs, superbowl(lost) and now nothing with the Walrus at the helm

Tampax Bay: Gay Pirate -> Skull Flag and Pewter pants, lost the silly orqnge for a dark red. Playoffs, superbowl (won only because it was against his former team), nothing since then.

Donkey's: Orange & blue -> darker orange and darker blue, the helmet logo was better though. Superbowl, won. The reason they won was the same reason that Miami never did. The running game. When they went, they had Terrell Davis, before that they had to rely on Donkey teeth himself. Think about "The Drive", Elway -> WR & out of bounds. There was no running in there, not because they had to move the ball, but becasue they didn't have a back. Every time the Donk's went to a superbowl the other team teed off with the Blitz and shut Elway down.

The Tatankas, changed their helmets, and nothing

Uni changes are done for $$Dollerage$$ reasons. think Cowboys, how many jerseys have they displayed over the last 10 years? New coach, new jersey. I'd say only the Patsies have pulled off a successful uni transition for "A New Day of Hope".

Finally there's this: Our Chiefs resurrected the red pants at the request of Lamar in his final season, cause he always liked the white top, red lower. The white/white became our travel uniform in the 80's if I remember correctly. If you look at old film, we used to travel white/red, with home Red/white.


Overall:

DON'T CHANGE A FRAKING THING!!!!!

I think i started this thread cause after 20 years of CP and now clark at the helm, think we could use a dusting off. Ok, not a major change and dont touch the helmet but think we could use some excitement for use die hard fans close to arrowhead and from afar. Our new stadium has not done much for me yet cause its not done. And like all things it will one day happen and we all know about it and the more we will like it will depend on how much we were involved in the process or ideas of it.

Hehe I dont think the uniform changes had alot to do with the records of the teams~ And if they did, that means a SB trip for us :P

Just a little change would be all that is needed, even if its wearing some alternates sometimes, or like I said, just adding dark red or yellow accents to the uniforms, maybe even just on certain players if they want to wear gloves or shoes with the accent color (like the seahawks neon green)

We need a change...end of story. Ketchup and Mustard is getting old and I stopped eating those sandwiches when I was kid. Of course people will bring up the history...a Super Bowl win 40 years ago, whoa. I would ask anyone: are you wearing the same clothes that you had 40 years ago...I think not. New owner, new GM, new coach, new stadium...new uniforms.

It is GO TIME!

Patriots (Spygate)

Who else has won. Not went, WON?!!

It's the truth...! :bananen_smilies046:

And you are right...Clark landed Pioli...already the NFL's biggest front office acquisition by far this season. Let Pioli find his men and work his magic with our draft. We have some stand out rookies from last season that will only improve more this season.

The Donks have Josh Mcdaniels now...hopefully another Weis, Crennel, and Mangini...along with our Special Teams Coach! ha!

We all know as long as Al Davis is alive we will always be one up on the faiders...

...and the sparks have there issues with their RB situation....and yes...Norv is still there, how, I dont know.

...let's not worry about if we look 'pretty enough'.....let's focus on the task, WINNING FOOTBALL GAMES.

Just a reminder for those who are worried about if we look pretty enough...we went 6-26 the last two seasons...do we really need to be discussing our uniforms right now?

I think change in uniforma would mark a new era in chiefs football and give some life to this team.

Financially speaking though, adding new uniforms would be a good move for the Chiefs. Sure, they would have to spend money to make money, but think of all the fans who would buy jerseys if they came out with new ones. Is it needed? Not really. Is it a priority? By no means. Is it a possibility? I would think so.

I don't think anyone here is suggesting that we completely overhaul the uniforms. Just make a few touches to improve them and bring them up to modern times. I still think they should make the yellow darker or a gold because we are red and gold not red and yellow. Don't be afraid of change, jerhart. It's going to eventually happen.

I love the new renovations going on with Arrowhead. Updating sporting venues is inevitable with time.

But there are things I do not like to change...for one...the name of 'Arrowhead' stadium. Are all of you who are fine with changing our uniforms okay with the fact that the name of our stadium is due to change and we could end up playing at something along the lines of 'Sprint' Stadium...?

....Why change our uniforms? Dont say to add life or mark the start of a new era....you do that with personnel moves and that is reflected with your record...lets not jump the gun an assume we are going to have the marvelous season and we need to mark it with new uniforms....?

We are unique because we keep with tradition...we dont have throwbacks... I am sorry if some of you dont like our 'mustard' color...because it isn't 'gold.' Well stop calling it gold...call it mustard..problem solved.

The uniforms will change when the Hunts feel that we are not selling enough merchandise and that a change will increase that. Tradition has nothing to do with it. Also, the belief that if they change the uniforms, it would cause current fans to dump the team is ridiculous. You change the uniforms to get new fans. Purists hated adding the wildcard to baseball. They did it to add fans. They know the old guard will not leave baseball. They want to attack new fans. That is why all teams change they uniforms or their logo etc or their name ("Bullets to Wizards). I say update the uniforms and let the old guard complain about how they used to be.

Maybe bust out a black jersey with the same patterns as the normal jersey, matched with the red pants for a home game.
