Many players might change numbers.

if Nike makes NFL jerseys look like those horrible Oregon Ducks jerseys I will stop watching football.

Liar

if it wasn't for fantasy football i wouldn't watch many other games besides Niner games. there's a lot I don't like about the NFL.

changing the jerseys "dramatically" isn't appealing to me.

I think it's more material than look. Without NFL approval/team approval I don't think they'll change the actual jersey colors/design/etc.
We have talked about this before in response to the pictures of proposed jerseys that were floating around the internet. No team is going to let Nike have creative license with how their jersey looks (the 49er proposed one looked like s**t).

Aside from a few changes here and there the jerseys are going to stay the exact same.

I don't thik they will stay the same. I think they are going to change them up big time.

Only if the team agrees with it. Nike can't come along and change the jersey of the 49ers to the ones we have seen floating around the internet (they were butt ugly).
NFL jerseys are sacred, especially ours. along with packers, bears. steelers, cowpukes. done see "Major " changes, just the swoosh logo

Those were done by some kid just for fun, he clearly put on the original post that these were his own designs, people missed that part and ran with it as if those were official Nike designs
I'm just hoping they don't screw with the teams that have kept there jerseys relatively the same for a long time. For instance our Niners have always had the same 3 strips on the sleeves. That's something they can't mess with. I hope they don't. Also, that one prototype with gold numbers was bad enough.
Is Phil Knight a Seahawks fans?

wonder if he'd make the niners jerseys hideous on purpose....

Just as I said about the lameness of historically irrelevant teams changing their uni's all the team, I am completely against "updating" the uniforms, especially ours after finally getting it right and classic. Just like Saban said about Alabama being a brand and not to mess with it, you don't mess with the iconic NFL teams uni's. Teams like Seattle and other nothing franchises go for it, I could care less.

Well now we only have 1 stripe and two half stripes.
All I read from this is that existing end of the line Reebok NFL jerseys are going to go dirt cheap before the Nike ones kick in.

This could be a good way to stock up on some jerseys

totally correct. The NFL teams have control over what colors/look their uniforms and logos have, not other companies. Not really a big deal here, the "big changes" to jerseys will be more later materials & things of that nature

True, but you get my point. lol

The 3 (or nowadays 1 & 2 halves) stripes have been a staple part of the 49ers' uniforms for a very long time.


I personally would like the logos back on the sleeves with the stripes & the gold outline/shadowing to the numbers/name. Always was a big fan of that era of Niner jerseys.
