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.

"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.
