Also, bear in mind that these new jerseys that have been posted appear more like replica jerseys (i.e. with the screen printed numbers, and not sewn on) so they're probably not the AUTHENTIC ones that will be worn on the field.
Even with the 96-08 uniform the shade of red on the replica jerseys always seemed darker and tackier that the shade used on the authentic jerseys (which was a richer, brighter red, though not the scarlet.)
IMO, just going with plain scarlet would have been wiser as that shade just seems to be more vibrant and eye-catching and remains so as a game wears on. Burgundy, cardinal, crimson, whatever... all those darker shades just seem to have had the life sucked out of them and get even less appealing as it get sweat-drenched.
