The Super Bowl Champion shirts and hats are ugly, jees! Blue and Green? Really??

In the words of Stewie Griffin..."Yeah, no thanks, no thanks."

I'll wait to see if they come out with an alternate color scheme.

I really don't like those seachicken colors tbh.

..... ain't no 'TRUE' Stiller fan gonna wear that crap.....

Yu'd think the organization woulda had traditional Black & Gold attire waiting for the players on the sideline, with simple 'Super Bowl XLIII Champs' embroidered onto them

I don't like the blue/green.

But it really burns Seattle people still bitter over XL and THAT makes it kind of worth it. What a slap in the face to see their colors with a Steeler insignia and the words "Super Bowl Champions" in huge print.

Maybe this is the NFL's way of apologizing to the Seahawks for the refs "handing us the game" in XL. Look at the colors, they scream Seahawks.:rofl::laughing::sofunny::blah:


I say HERE WE GO STEELERS:tt02::tt02::tt:

Those are some ugly colors. I hope some different stuff is going to be produced. Proud of the six trophies but those colors make me want to puke!

The only green on the shirt is in the SB logo. I bought one yesterday and I love it.

super bowl XL had some great clothing.. the grey championship t-shirt and matching hat were very nice.

Actually, that's the exact reason I don't like it. Squawks colors? Really?

I'm out on those too. It looks like a Seahawks hat with our logo on it.

Ain't NO WAY I'm wearing one of those up here where I live.

They can kiss my butt if they think I would be caught dead wearing that Seahawks cap. And how about that stupid white towel that goes with it. Are they freaking kidding? I like the Six-burgh shirts but there is a two month wait for those. Guess I will go to the local mall and see what they have there.

Seems like the NFL is tryin to sell the SB merch instead of selling a Steeler victory,but I quess their out to make money.

I hate that the tee shirt only comes in white...why not black or grey?

The hats effin' suck!

Wait a few weeks.....more variety of merch will start flooding the online sellers. I learned my lesson after SB XL, buying up about $300 worth of gear after the game, only to spend $300 more a few weeks later when even more cooler stuff came out!

i can vouch for the football fanatics website. they have some good lookin Super Bowl gear. im still waiting for tomorrow cause that is when my local stores are getting all there gear. im prolly gonna get a few new hats cause thats what i collect :applaudit:

SteelCityKing
02-03-2009, 06:34 PM
yeah, they could've atleast picked the same colors as the winning team...geez! our Super Bowl gear makes it look like the Seahawks won! haha!

i'm buying a shirt and cutting the sleeves off. i do that with all my championship shirts. i don't know why...just tradition i guess. if we lose...i cut my jeans off. so, i have about 10 pair of Daisy Dukes. =)

Im the same way. Every championship hat I own is put up and never worn.

Good point! Even Steelers stores will have lots of cool stuff. The NFL dropped the ball on the lack of colors and creativity.

I gotta fly into 'da Burgh, then drive out to Westmoreland County, tomorrow, then fly back to central Florida in 2 weeks:
hopefully, some good-stuff will be available at local shops, or at Station Square during my visit.....

anybody got any good suggestions for locations of SB XLIII Champion souvies?

Westmorerland County:

Dick's behind Westmorelend Mall is a good place for the regular NFL things. I got my XLIII stuff there.

WOW Oulets across from Westmoreland Mall has dirt cheap Steeler stuff, but it is all the generic “unofficial” products. Good place because $20 goes a very long way.

The Steeler Store in Monroeville Mall has everything you can think of. I could spend a grand there easy but I would be divorced.

Go to the Strip District. Lots of street merchants with lots and lots and LOTS of nice gear, dirt cheap. You'll thank me later.

The hats this year are butt-ugly, nevertheless, I still bought one just to rub it in to all of my friends and co-workers who said "I hope your team loses" last week. Nothing like serving up a big plate of crow!

The thing that's really annoying is how cheaply Reebok makes these things. To save $$$, they just make 1 basic design and affix the winner's logo on what is basically a sticker. I just got my AFC Champions hat a week ago and already the logo is falling off.

Speaking of which, something really comical happened right here Sunday night. Between the time the Cards went ahead 23-20 and we took the lead at 27-23 again, we had at LEAST six trolls register here with obvious troll names like "Steelers_are_chokers," "Steelers_suxs" and the like. Funny how it stopped when we won. :laughing:

I don't think the individual teams have control over this. Reebok (or whoever it is) makes the attire in advance. Then they just plop the team logos on it once they know the two participants. The versions with the losing team go to charity (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09035/946729-66.stm) (Pats' 19-0 gear in Nicaragua.)

All that being said, yes, the blue and green is butt ugly.

Ha, you and me both man. Even though I didn't care for the hat much, I still ended up buying it and will just leave it sitting out displaying somewhere just so I can have it.

Hopefully some day you guys in the desert will understand that problem.
