LITP,

Not to be the smart@$$, but it was explained in the opening post that occasionally the home team will opt for their away uniform (as Dallas does), forcing our boys to wear the Black jersey. Being from the South, black is NOT a personal option for wear during rhe summer; it DOES make a difference during daylight hours.

But, I still have to side with Stillers. I would rather we stick with tradition, which is a steadfast part of the Pittsburgh identity; from coaching staff, to franchise QB's, to our heralded uniform. I would, to borrow a phrase already used in this thread, "throw up a little in my mouth" when I used to go to Chargers games (when I lived in the San Diego area) and they would wear their "Power Blue: throwbacks.

Stick with what we have established; it is intimidating, it is easier to pick our receivers out of a crowd during the heat of a play, and it just looks awesome. Simplicity, occasionally, is better than intricacy.

Hurrah to the Black and Gold.........may it's legend never falter.

I remember reading something that said we tried to make yellow jersies about two or three years ago. The league office turned us down, saying the yellow is too dark for the road and too light for a home uniform.

I was told the League is VERY picky about unifrom colors, as they relate to TV, which is the reason why the NFL's 75th anniversary uniforms in '94 had lotsa Black in them, with not as-much Yellow as had been discussed, and why I submit the idea of a '50s-'60's 'throw-back' uniform for the franchise's 75th season in '07:
the team's style, and front-office character, is 'old-school', and these uniforms would enforce that opinion.

The white would be alot better, but alot of southern team opt for their white jersey in the summer months forcing us to wear the hot black

I agree the black looks better, but if you've ever worn black in hot/humid weather you'd see a reason this might be a good idea, I wouldnt want them to wear it all year long. Just on extremly hot days.

and we did wear white against Jax this year but it was a night game on a not really hot day.

I agree. But, the reason we wore white was because the game was in the evening, yeah, your still in fla, but not as if you have the hot sun beating down on ya. If it was a Sunday afternoon game, they would have had us in Black.

We wore the whites, but the game started at 8:30 p.m. Eastern. Not much of a factor, but we certainly did suck that night. If the game started at noon, I'm betting Jax would have chosen to wear their white jerseys. Houston did it in week 2 of 2005 in Reliant Stadium.

I like the design, but I would like to see them go with a more gold gold than yellow gold. Has anyone noticed the alternate Georgia Tech uniforms, the gold is darker than the original. I would like to see them change the yellow gold to a deeper more traditional gold.

I like it, but I'm a traditionalist at heart. I would be thoroughly disgusted if they ever changed.
