I must say I've always hated it when we wear gold shoes. I'm always thinking I see a flag on the play.

:shock: that certainly helped clear up any misconceptions and mistaken vibes I had :lol:
It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive in the near future, the problems here are complex - we'll win some games but it will take years to be good again

My God... that's wrong in so many ways... The hideous unis are just the start.

I always loved the throwback helmets with the arrow heads. Pretty sweet variation on the original.

Me too. That's nice!!! Too much of the current stuff looks like Ronald McDonald colors to me. I like these ones that are true "burgundy and gold".

This is a good look.

I'm in favor of employing more of a metallic or flourecent GOLD on the accents parts. Like the cleats, gloves, & stripes.

Like this

There are ways we can modernize our uniform's look while maintaining the integrity of our tradition.

Keep the Gold Pants, Burgundy Top Look. And, add more metallic embellishments on the Gold. And, we're in business. We are the Burgundy & GOLD. Not yellow. Let's go for the gold.
SPIT HAPPENS!!

Well, the burgundy isn't actually burgundy, either. That's a relic from Vince Lombardi, who was a bit colorblind but too proud to admit it.
