Per Tom Kowalski's mlive blog, the Lions brass have decided to part ways with the team's black unis. The throwbacks will be the new alternate jersey like they were this past season for the team's anniversary year, but this change is for the long run.
Personally, I'm a little bummed. I have a Black Ernie Jersey. Oh well, it will be a cool keepsake. Still want to get one of those $110 Barry Sanders throwbacks that Reebok has made, so to cope with the imminent jersey changes, I still have something to wear at the Draft as well as at Ford Field without feeling like an A$$hole.
