On a side note, didn't we OFFICIALLY change our uniforms and color scheme?? Someone needs to inform Reebok.
Are we Red??Are we Burgundy?? WTF
i agree with you.
ever since they changed from the Quentin font, our stuff has been getting uglier and uglier. now its this boring, plain 49ers font that looks more like a generic example than anything. the fonts and designs they use for our new gear look like a random person with no experience went on photoshop and made up some logos to display somewhere.
and our hats are always dominated by black....whats up with that? black isnt even one of our colors outside the rim of the logo. and its this horrible rubber stuff, or the leather.....
the NFL is trying way too hard to make a million and one different designs, fonts, logos, color patterns, etc, to sell team gear and make money. most of the stuff i see i just think "whos buying this crap? it looks terrible..."
and the official site blows. it has to be said. its better than some sorry excuses for NFL team sites, but its disorganized, and they cant decide on the color scheme.
its like a bulletin board crammed with links, ads, articles, pictures, logos, etc. and their info and stats are always way outdated. whoever runs the site is likely being paid big money to be extremely lazy. we changed our whole uni and color scheme, and it hasnt even been updated to reflect that. its still all dark red. they just pasted some patrick willis new uni pics here and there to make it look up to date.
the NFL needs to mandate an official site template like MLB does. everyones site is set up the same way so its easy to navigate and looks nice. as the baseball teams have proven, you can still make it unique if you put some effort.
