You're going to see alot of it in the AFC as it's the 50th anniversiary of the AFL, but I'm not sure why ATL wore theirs......were they originally an AFL team? Or did they wear them just because? I can't believe I actually care about what the Falcons are doing.....but I wouldnt mind seeing the Saints striped sleeves home or away jerseys but, let's get all of the golds right this time? The pants gold and jersey/helmet gold were different and it looked like dung.
It's weird how in that one season (2002) the Saints went crazy with retros, alternates, all blacks (before any other team did it), gold jerseys, etc.
Then after that - nothing. No alternates, no retros, nada.
I don't understand why an NFL team would hesitate to come out with different looks - it creates a whole new merchandising opportunity. There were Eagles fans at the game yesterday wearing those horrible light blue and gold throwback unis that Philly wore last year.
The only thing the Saints do to mix it up is gold pants v's black pants - but that's not even a big deal because fans don't buy pants.
