They got rid of those uniforms for a reason...
« on: November 18, 2012, 09:19:27 PM »
is it just me that thinks these NFL retro uniforms like the Steelers are wearing tonight are as hideous as anything they have ever come up with ??

They got rid of the killer bee look years ago, and I think it is idiotic to bring them back, even temporarily.  Tampa Bay played last week in those Zorro the Gay Blade uniforms they used to wear when they were such woosies they couldn't win a game...

Seriously, when there was only black and white TV the stripes made some sense to tell the players apart, but now they are an assault on the eyes....

yeesh!  The things we Americanos bitch about.....

The Steelers do look like a bunch of bumblebees in those uniforms. 

I'm glad my team is only ten years old.  Not a whole lot of "retro" there yet.   ^-^

The Steelers are celebrating their 80th year, and the unfortunate bumblebee uniforms are from that first year.  It's wrong in so many ways, but at least it's somewhat historically accurate.  :nono:
