Obviously, they aren't the prettiest things ever, but I really don't get the "worst uniform in any sport ever" sentiments I've heard from a lot of places this weekend. There have been plenty of WAY worse uniforms in hockey and basketball and I still don't think they're as bad as the old Eagles or Packers throwbacks.

i'd have to agree with a lot of people on here, the uniforms grew on me throughout the game.

Maybe if we had a bad game I'd think differently.

I agree, they aren't any worse than these unis worn by the Chicago White Sox...

I don't think these uniforms will grow on me. I hope they only last one season. I DID like that no one on the team wore any pink on Sunday. That truly would have been awful.

Scandal rocks Pittsburgh Steelers as historical accuracy of throwback uniforms questioned

By Rebecca Rollett on Nov 2



And to think we were worried about minor stuff like the Emmanuel Sanders injury or the Ta'amu legal troubles...

In a hard-hitting piece of uniform-related journalism, Phil Hecken of Uni-Watch reveals the questionable historical basis for the "1934" throwbacks. In a patient unravelling of the evidence trail, including a trip to the Pennsylvania State Library in Harrisburg, Hecken reveals the uniforms were first worn not in 1934 but in 1933.

Hecken's evidence is based upon viewing the microfilm collection of Pittsburgh newspaper photos of games in 1933 and 1934. According to Hecken, the unis were only worn once in a game, in November of 1933. (They were also worn in a team photo in 1934.) The game was vs. Brooklyn, and the Pittsburgh (football) Pirates were beaten 32-0. Thank heavens I didn't know this before last Sunday's game—I would have been even more of a wreck than I was.

But, shocking as this presumably deliberate misinformation is, the scandal doesn't stop there. According to Hecken's evidence, the number blocks actually had a yellow background rather than a white one. Although the Steelers facility displays a jersey purporting to be from 1934 with white number blocks, its authenticity has not been confirmed. Will the deceit never end?

Isn't there enough scandal on the team now, what with Emmanuel Sanders' upcoming visit to the league offices (at least once he can get to them,) DeAngelo Hall's accusations of dirty play on the part of a Steelers wide receiver, or the brutal treatment of a peaceable visiting quarterback (RGIII) at the hands of S Will Allen and OLB James Harrison? You would think they would at least get the unis right.

O tempores, o mores! But, because of the tireless search for the truth of Mr. Hecken, veritas vincit. Thank heavens there is still a man in the media who isn't afraid to challenge the great and confront them with their faults. I implore the Steelers organization to own up to their duplicity, right the ship, and once again be able to hold their heads high among their peers in the National Football League. And as for those of you considering the purchase of a throwback jersey, caveat emptor.
