Anyone know what the new throwbacks for 2012 will be? I understand that the speculation is they will be the 1967 uni.

I'm good with that.

Just don't bring back those horrible throwbacks from 1994.

I hope they are not the Golden Arch uni...those things were so ugly.

So glad they are getting rid of the current ones. The jersey itself was okay but the yellow helmets and white pants had to go, they just ruined it.

Quite honestly I wouldn't mind just a 70's throwback, I know it's just the current uniforms with different numbers but I'd rather just see those than something ugly. The "Batman" ones are okay too I guess, still an improvement over what we currently have.

I'll say one thing about the Steeler organization is they havent changed them as much as most of the other teams, and most of them were a change for the worst.

It's gotta be the 67 or 33 jersey. Everything else is almost identical to the ones we wear now.

I am very upset they are going away from these throwbacks. I loved the yellow helmet and white pants. It was different to see the Steelers in a different uni once in awhile and they always played very well in them. I really hope they do not go with the uni in soulkitchen's post (they are putrid). My vote is for the green jersey haha

well.. with the new Batman movie coming out this summer, and the fact that it was filmed at Heinz Field.. it makes it almost too easy for publicity.

Where was this said? It'll be cool to switch things up but I kind of like the throwbacks we have now. The Gold helmets and white pants with black and gold trim are a nice combo, CERTAINLY better that most of the other teams throwbacks.

In the interview on Steelers.com, Rooney said that while Nike will earned the rights to produce all NFL teams' uniforms starting in 2012, fans will see no changes in the Steelers uniform. He did say, however, that the team will introduce a new throwback jersey for 2012.

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/12025/1205966-100.stm

"Better" throwbacks have nothing to do with this - it is all about the Benjamins - Nike is taking over the NFL uniform contract from Reebok and wants to get paid - be grateful Nike cannot demand the standard uni be changed

Personally, with the Nike switch, I was hoping for an "edgier" alternate like the Pro Combat designs, as opposed to a "throwback." I know we're more of a "classic" kind of team but to put it quite honestly all our old uniforms either sucked or are too similar to the current ones. Thought it would have been cool to see something brand new.

I'd HATE to see a new Steelers uniform. The Black and Gold are as classic as they come and are in the same mold as Green Bay, Chicago and Kansas City. Even when they went to the "bubble" numbers in 1997 (Nike as well) it took me YEARS to come around to them and missed the blocked letters from time to time. I love them as they are, no way should they EVER consider a new make.

I wasn't saying that they should totally replace the current ones, just have a new alternate to be used once or twice a year instead of a throwback. And the Georgia ones are a horrible comparison, not every Pro Combat uni is as stupid as those or Oregon uniforms or anything, Nike's done plenty of work over the past few years that pays homage to classic uniforms and still looks fresh.

I hate the throwbacks we have now, I'm always disappointed when they bust them out for big games. I went to a game at Heinz for the first time this year since 2006 and what do I see when I get in the stands? Those damn yellow helmets and white pants (even though obviously nothing could ruin the experience for me - oh yeah, that 92-yard drive.) I too would like to see them bring back the block numbers, actually permanently, but a few games a year will do.

Good golly, out of all those choices in the picture, I think the 1994 throwback is the least of all those huge evils.

If they wear the Batman's from '67 onto the field today-- they would get laughed out of the stadium. Those are GOD AWFUL looking....

I think the current throwbacks are great (minus the yellow-azz helmets).

I actually wouldn't have any problems with our current throwbacks if they would just go with something else besides those white fairy pants.......anybody else sick of seeing big manly dudes running around in white spandex?

Hopefully all is changed but the jersey. Yellow pants and black helmet makes the jersey look even more intimidating

i'd be for switching to block numbers full time, but not until Ben retires and ends this current era of the Steelers. it'd be a nice way for the Steelers to start a new era.

I agree, it would be weird to see Ben with a blocky 7 on his jersey all the time. The current numbers are what his legacy has been built in, so keep them until that era is over.

Exactly. As long as Goodell is going to make our D illegal, it would make sense to put Harison, Clark & co. in prison garb.

How about copying from one of my favorite flicks, Starship Troopers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pn_EiAzW2uQ)? Such a shame they had to mimic the Bungholes. :doh:

I don't know. I kind of think they should go to a throwback that looks sort of like this with the black helmet. Of course it would say Steelers instead of Pirates on it.
