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.

"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
