    CHIEFS TO UNVEIL "THROWBACK" AFL UNIFORMS IN 2009

    MAR 24, 2009, 2:38:00 PM


    The National Football League has officially granted permission to the Kansas City Chiefs to wear replicas of their original uniforms and helmets from the club’s ‘62 AFL Championship season during three select games this season. The Chiefs, originally founded as the Dallas Texans, will wear their “throwbacks” along with the seven original American Football League members as the franchises join to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Chiefs Founder Lamar Hunt’s creation of the AFL.

    The Chiefs “throwback” look will feature helmets with gray facemasks and a Texas-shaped decal with a gold star showing the location of the city of Dallas. Jerseys for the club’s “throwback” games will include a patch that honors the AFL’s 50th anniversary. Kansas City will don these replica uniforms when they host the Dallas Cowboys at Arrowhead Stadium and against two AFC West opponents yet to be determined (one home date and one away date).
    In addition, the NFL will honor the AFL’s 50th birthday on its 2009 Kickoff Weekend with a Monday Night Football(9/14) doubleheader featuring club’s from the AFL’s first season. The first game will send Buffalo to visit New England and the MNF nightcap will be an AFC West battle with Oakland hosting San Diego. The Chiefs are also scheduled to unveil a 50th anniversary logo and host a series of events throughout the year to commemorate the franchise’s 50th anniversary.

    I would much rather it had been this logo...



    Of course, if I remember right, this was actually only a patch and not the helmet design.

    I would just rather not see Texas on a Chiefs helmet. heh

    THAT quarterback is NOT a Pro Bowl quarterback. Never was and never will be.

    There is a reason for the term, throwback.
