Alternate Uniforms for summer games
 
alot of times when we play down south early in the season opposing teams will make us wear our black jerseys to get a slight advantage due to the heat.

if we had an alternate for these cases we wouldn't have to wear the hot black.

I mostly made this because I was bored but after I was done I thought it looked pretty cool so I thought I'd share it

I used the picture of the steelers uniform from http://www.sportslogos.net/ and modified it.

PS I'm not 100% sure if this belongs in this forum, but if it doesn't I guess the mods can move it.

Wouldnt the white uniform (in Justin Ostott's sig, above) be better in hot weather?

I like the deisgn though, it looks really old-school.

Eh...I just puked in my mouth. The black jersey thing isn't that big of a deal. Didn't we wear whites against Jacksonville this year? Let's worry about executing first. Besides, I am a firm believer in our tradition, let's not be one of those teams who has an alternate jersey.

Cool design, but I'm completely with Stillers#1 on this one.

Looks better than the old yellow and black striped jerseys.

This will be the Stillers' 75th season, and to commemorate this event, I'd like to see them go back to their uniforms of the late-'50s/early-'60s:
it could be a one-year-deal, with the game-worn uniforms auctioned-off after the season, and sales of replica jerseys would sell like hot-cakes.

Here is Ernie Stautner, 'modeling' the home uniforms, consisting of a Black jersey with ALL Yellow numbering & stripes, White trousers with narrow Black/Yellow/Black striping down the side, and a Yellow helmet:

John Henry Johnson shows-off the road uniforms, using the current helmet, a white jersey with Black stripes and numbers on Yellow sleeves, Black numerals front-and-back with Yellow borders, and the identical trousers worn at-home:

Instead of the U.S. Steel-inspired logo, I'd use the seldom-seen logo of a steel-worker, punting a football while straddling an I-beam.
