Awesome. I think that it looks a lot better than it used to. It actually looks like a Lion when I look at it. And i don't have to double take to see what it actually is. Now I just hope their uni's don't look silly.

I like it. Not too much of a change, nor does it look ridiculous. I thought that the colors were changing a bit too, but I liked the blue and silver as it was.

Silly Lions.

But I like the change. Remains conservative, yet modernises it too.

PS apparently the 49ers and Jags are getting new uni's?! Anyone have info on that?

I think I used to assume that the arm overlap was the other way around, but now I can't picture it any other way and can't even be sure of that. This is quite annoying.
Good for them?

Should have added just a picture of a Lion eating a gazelle in the wild or that monkey holding up Simba from the Lion King or just a middle finger followed by the Vikings,Packers and Bears logo. Or Ernie Sims eating a gazzelle in the wild. All would have been better IMO.

PS apparently the 49ers and Jags are getting new uni's?! Anyone have info on that?

The team confirmed today that the 49ers will be changing the uniform for the 2009 season. The new design will be presented at the 49ers Draft Day event on April 25. No further details will be released until then.
http://49ers.com/blog49/?p=426

The 49ers today announced that there will, in fact, be a uniform change for the 2009 season.

The concept of throwback-style uniforms has been discussed for several seasons. The new design will be on display at the 49ers draft day event on April 25, the club announced.

Club chief operating officer Andy Dolich foreshadowed today's announcement at the state-of-the-franchise event last night in San Mateo when he said, "Stay tuned," after being asked if the 49ers might go back to the team's classic uniform design that was changed in 1996.
http://blog.pressdemocrat.com/49ers/2009/02/uniform-change-is-coming-this-season.html

The 49ers, indeed, will unveil a new -- perhaps old -- look this season. On its web site, the team announced that it would unveil the new uniform in two months: "The team confirmed today that the 49ers will be changing the uniform for the 2009 season. The new design will be presented at the 49ers Draft Day event on April 25. No further details will be released until then."

In the past, Jed York has said he favors the cherry red threads from the early 1980s, the ones the team has worn for "throwback" games twice a year in recent seasons. The team held focus groups early last year to get input from both fans and the players. How closely will the new look resemble the uniforms of yesteryear? We'll find out in April ...

I heard somewhere that the Jags were changing their helmet design. That the black paint would be like a sparkle and that they would glimmer in the sun. I'll see if I can find something...

EDIT: I coulnd't find anything. I think that they are doing a much better job of keeping it covered up. But the little that I saw it seemed as though the uniform changes are going to be nothing drastic.

That was an older article, but yes Grady Jackson mentioned that. Everyone knows that we are going to get a new logo AND new jerseys. The color change was a possibility but based off that logo leak, it doesn't look like the colors have changed.

The Unseen
03-24-2009, 03:16 PM
The Jags will apparently undergo minor uniform changes, mostly striping and placement of color on uniforms. All the colors and logo will stay the same, according to sources.

I think that the old logo was better than any of the proposed options, but at least they didn't **** it up too bad. The other rumored logos looked *** as ****, this one is just a slight downgrade.

How can you honestly like the old logo better? You can't even tell it's a Lion and the arm touches the mouth and makes a white space that you think is the eye! haha one of the worst logos ever

0/78/137 RBG seems a lot darker to me than what that scanned image shows. Here are the colors based on the chart:

http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/9255/lionsg.png (http://img14.imageshack.us/my.php?image=lionsg.png)

Of course, this will change depending on your PC's gamma, screen etc. But is it this dark on the old ones? If not, it makes sense to me, as it seems every uniform change since 1995 or so has involved adding darker, richer colors.

people dont realize that yes those are the colors using the RGB but then it says 80% greyscale for the color blue. So you have to tint that color down 80% more. Not sure exactly how to do that, but the blue color everyone is guessing is wrong.

In my humble opinion, the Lions have been treading on that Carolina Panthers futuristic ******** look for a while now. I never liked the black uniforms or the other modifications they've made in the last few years. Although I've never really like the combination of silver and blue anyway. Makes them look like cheezy astronauts or something.

But if Lions fans are happy that's all that really matters. It's not like uniforms mean all that much anyway.
