Retro Sports Uniforms



Personally, I enjoy when sports teams wear throwback uniforms. Some look cool while others don't. I wish the Chicago Cubs would do that more often. Last season, they wore 1948 uniforms when they played the Atlanta Braves. That day, the Braves wore their old Boston Braves uniforms.

On Monday night, the New England Patriots wore their classic Super Bowl XX uniforms while the Buffalo Bills donned throwbacks, too. Believe me, I understand the point. It's about selling merchandise. Still, I wonder if teams wear retro uniforms too often. Has the novelty worn off?

i personally like that Penn State just never left their classic look.

yes the novelty ends quickly when they do it too often, i agree.

I've never heard of the practice. I think it would be good in the Premiership occasionally. Especially if they also sported retro hair...

They were planning to change to a crazy looking uniform at NC State for the coming and the fans booed down before it ever happened.

Why all of the negative reaction? Were they that hideous?
