Weigh In: The Grey Uniforms
Sun Dec 16, 2012 7:02 pm
  • Man, I am a uniform nut. I love the designs of most of our former and current uni's. However, I cannot, nor will I endorse these Gawdawful wolf grey uniforms, especially with the green shoes.

    :pukeface:

    Yes, yes, keep wearing them if it means winning and all that yadda yadda...

    But as a graphic designer and highly visual person, I just think Nike dropped the ball on these. The color looks like it was once white but they spent too much time next to the highway gathering exhaust smoke. The grey, in my eyes, to be cool, should be several shades darker. More imposing. These just look like off-white, dirty uniforms.

    So go ahead, weigh in...What do you think?

  • You're out of your goddam mind. A guy was wearing a Rice wolf grey jersey today at the bar I went to watch the game in, and it looked fantastic.

    I like them, but I think both the blues and the whites are better.

  • I think you are right about the all-greys looking like they used to be white. I think the grey jerseys would look better with the white or blue pants.

  • I'd like to see them with the blue pants. Grey on grey is much better than white on white, and white on grey.

    #1 Blue on Blue
    #2 Blue on Grey
    #3 White on Blue
    #4 Grey on Grey
    #5 ?? Grey on Blue
    #6 White on Grey
    #7 White on White
    #8 Blue on White
    #9 Grey on White

  • The all grey is what I hate. I love our all blues, all whites, and mix and matches but the all light grey is just bluh.

    Having said that, they look damn sexy throwing up 50 on the Bills.

    It's nice having a converstion about mix and matching uniforms with the 3 colors, so even if grey on grey isn't your favorite only seeing it one a year is worth adding the grey alternates giving us 9 different options. The Grey kinda reminds me of the original seahawks

  • I was surprised they went all grey. I guess I thought they would just use the grey to off set the blue. Blue top/grey pants, grey top/blue pants. I'd rather the Seahawks just make the pre 2002 jersey the alternate than wear all grey.

  • I like them. But when you sweat... notice the darker the jersey gets around the stomach area? Makes it look funny. Not a big deal but that's what I don't like about, the material that's used on that area.

  • All I know is, the Hawks scored 50 points the first time they wore em, so the grey on grey uni's are ingrained in my mind as AWESOME.

    But with all of our uniforms/color combos in general, I think they look better from a distance, like on TV, than up close, like that picture.

    I like different. What I DON'T like is a grey so close to white it looks like WHITE but DIRTY.

    I want an alternate uniform that LOOKS DIFFERENT than our other uniforms. Not sort of similar to our whites.

    Why is this so hard to understand??

    Because I'm sure the league has strict rules about how light/dark your away uniforms can be compared to your home uniforms, and likely, this is as dark as they can probably get them?
