Nike helps continue Pro Bowl death march with new neon uniforms


Oy vey. We bemoaned (not really) the slow death of the NFL Pro Bowl a few months back. The rule changes are all a desperate attempt to save an event that has lost relevance and shall never regain it. Well, now the ole Pro Bowl has done gone out and gotten that much more ridiculous.

Nike, who took over as the official on-field NFL apparel provider this season, has taken it upon themselves to refresh the look of the traditional NFC and AFC Pro Bowl uniforms. Gone are the blue and red of yesteryear (soooo boring). They are to be replaced by bright orange and the “volt yellow” that we’ve come to associate with the Oregon Ducks and their 2,567 different uni combos.

Personally, I’m not against change, nor do I think departing from blue and red is a symbolic and unpatriotic kick to the balls of Americans and their real adopted past time. I just think they’re ugly. But don’t let me be your arbiter of on-field fashion. Take a look for yourself. Just remember to wear shades. It’s about to get bright in here.

    You would think that as much as we have embarrassed ouslvrees over the last few seasons whenever we’d pop up with some new uniform, or shirt color, or let’s black out the stadium! .that making a big deal of a new uniform would be the very LAST thing a coach would either do or allow. And yet, here’s Coach Richt again, just squealing and rubbing his thighs together in glee over a new uniform.I realize that UGA is probably getting paid to wear these things and Coach Richt doesn’t have any choice. (Though I do suspect he had a lot of input when the decision was made.) But I sure wish he wouldn’t seem so tickled over it. I swear, he sure does seem to love gimmicks and stuff like this. I fully expect to see the team come prancing out one Saturday wearing capes, with plumes stuck on top of your helmets. And I sure HOPE this is a crock but I’ve gotten an email from a friend telling me that Coach Richt has asked everyone to red out the stadium. Now red is the usual color that everyone traditionally wears to Sanford Stadium, so I guess this is certainly not as gimmicky as that black out we did for Alabama. But I sure wish Coach Richt would just keep his damn mouth shut about uniforms and what the fans should wear to the game and concentrate on getting the team ready to play.
