PostSubject: Interesting article about Nike taking over.    Tue Jan 24 2012, 18:45

The following article comes from NBC sports talk.

If you love the NFL enough to plunk down some jack for a jersey, replica or official, you probably should wait three months.

In April 2012, Nike takes over the apparel contract from Reebok.  And on the day that the switch was announced in October 2010, Nike Brand president Charlie Denson told Darren Rovell of CNBC that significant adjustments are coming.

“We plan on changing the NFL jersey dramatically just like we’ve done with the college programs, using new thinking and the greatest technology available,” Denson said. “The NFL program hasn’t had the same type of advancement in recent years.

The looming change possibly explains why players like Vikings running back Adrian Peterson are contemplating a number change.  Recently on his Twitter page, Peterson mused about shifting to No. 21 or No. 23.  (Maybe Peterson knows something that cornerback Asher Allen, who currently wears No. 21, doesn’t.)

In past years, a player-initiated number change would have been met with a requirement that the player refund Reebok for the existing inventory of jerseys with the number he wants to abandon.  With the new Nike jerseys coming soon, there’s a chance that it will be open season for the shifting of numbers.

Regardless of whether we’ll see players changing numbers, the jerseys apparently will be changing.  And it would make sense to refrain from breaking out your change purse until the new designs are unveiled.

Old numbers + old jerseys = dirt cheap Razz

Or you could buy during the next three months and get half priced jerseys....

NFL uniforms should be interesting next season. I'm kind of looking forward to see what Nike is going to do.

Nike can't do anything unless the individual teams want to. ^

I was playing PES 2012 last night and realised that for EA Sports to get the kits right they need to know the appearence months in advance. With Madden 13 due in august, developers will need to know the ins and outs of the new kits by around March. That means that leaked images shouldn't be too far away

There won't be any changes, other than the Broncos changing their home colour to orange.

Wrong. The Jags and Panthers have both been rumored to be changing next year. The Panthers new logo has already been leaked here. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Bz9WFib7PCM/TyX20Vfn6cI/AAAAAAAABoo/u3m2qVQGQWE/s1600/newlogoHUGE.jpg

Jags going to black in 2013

Seems like an odd decision to me, I liked the teal. Too many black uni's in the league.

I think a few teams should switch colours, but the Jags weren't one of them. I'd like to see Denver go for orange at home

Black? In Florida? The players are gonna die out there, wouldn't be surprised if they wore white at home during the begining of the season.

You got your wish then, the Broncos will wear orange as their home colour from 2012.

Good, teams should wear bright colours. Otherwise they end up all looking the same like the English Premiership
