    Default 2012 NFL Uniforms

    Nike has gained rights to NFL uniforms for the 2012 season. Possible prototypes? It's yet to be confirmed. I don't even know the source of these images, but there are a number of threads on various forums, talking about it. Some of these looks pretty righteous, regardless. I particularly like the Jets one, and then the feathers on the helmet of the Chiefs is bad ass.

    Ugh. I hope that Nike is just making the uniforms, not consulting on the design. They've done enough to crapify college football and basketball uniforms. What a bunch of eyesores these are. It shouldn't be a problem, because when Reebok took over they didn't change that much. But with Nike I'm always wary.

    LOL. No, just a traditionalist. I kind of resent how a company that makes sneakers has so much power over the sports we enjoy. Especially when they wield it like a child with a sledgehammer.

    Oh, and just for curiosity's sake, I wonder if the artist who created these is a Browns fan. That's the only uniform that didn't change drastically.

    Oh yeah!

    The Patriots are known for being fashion trend setters.

    I like most of them - the 49ers and the dark blue/orange one (don't know the team) are my favourites. Some are just plain awful though.

    But just a question about something I've never understood about American football: why on earth do they wear padding on their thighs? And are knee pads really that necessary?

    I'm with strawberries on the shorts front (the sleeveless shirts are lame though :rolli. I find it rather strange to see a bunch of macho men wearing tights.

    The thigh pads are because blocking and tackling is often done at thigh level. So if someone is launching themselves at your thighs, they come in handy. A lot of players go without knee pads these days, but they're pretty useful if you get tackled and land on your knee, especially on artificial turf.
