Gold Pants!

Postby Chris Luva Luva » Fri Aug 10, 2012 1:59 pm

Was anyone else delightfully surprised that the gold pants are still available for the team to wear? I was worried that they'd be axed because of the throwback uni's selected for the 80th anniversary.

Two questions -

Does this mean that we'll wear gold pants for away games this year?
Any word on the Golden "R" helmet being used this year?

I love the gold pants, and wish we would always wear them.

Same here. I liove the Gold Pants with the Burgundy jerseys for home games and then either the gold or burgundy pants / white jerseys for the away unis. I've heard nothing as far as the Golden 'R' helmet, just the faux leather one for the throwback.

No, white jerseys with burgundy pants whenever possible, home or away. Burgundy jerseys and gold pants if not.

Classic.

Smart.

Historical.

That's fine, and all... but unfixing it would be... well... inaccurate.
Gold pants are MORE Classic... and MORE Historical...

White jerseys and burgundy jerseys look awesome with white pants.

OK, I hear you, but I'm talking Super Bowl history, not pre-merger history. We won three Super Bowls in white with burgundy pants, those images of Riggins, Williams and Rypien are what sets us apart from the rest.

All burgundy - just awful

All white - Dull

Burgundy with white pants - plain

Burgundy with gold pants - nice

White with burgundy pants - Winners.

That's my take on it anyways....

If I was to walk into my local pub wearing gold trousers and burgundy sweater, I guarantee I'd get the crap kicked out of me......



























To be fair, it might be because they all hate me.

There could be no end of reasons why they'd kick the crap out of you, there's just no point speculating...

I left out the white jersey and gold pants combo we wore last game from my list, that is better than burgundy with white pants and not as good as burgundy with gold pants.

I'm glad we've settled that...

If we did that, we'd actually end up wearing burgundy most of the time, because most NFL teams still prefer white when they are at home.
