  • The NFL Equipment Patch, Hate It Or Like It?

    I don't know if it bothers you guys but it really irks the heck out of me. It really makes the jersey look real tacky. Like it's got a big @$$ sponsor on your neck like VIAGRA or Pepsi or something like that. You don't see the NBA, NHL, or MLB with a big ugly logo on their jersey's that look like sponsorship now do you? I wish they had just left it the way it was with just the NFL Shield on the V-neck instead of this ugly heart designed patch. 'Cause if you look at your jersey it really stands out. And if you have a blue home Denver Broncos jersey it covers up that blue it has in-between the orange V-neck to make the jersey look more detailed. And with that big patch it covers up the blue. So it kind of defeats the whole purpose of the blue being there. I bet it was Reebok's idea for the whole thing, because if you guys remember the Broncos uniforms was designed and made by Nike. The Broncos logo and the uniform was made by Nike. And I wish the Commissioner had said no to the big NFL Equipment Patch. Anyway it just irks me and I wish the NFL didn't sign that 10 year contract with Reebok so they have all the licensing to do most of the apparel for the NFL. But I say that because I'm a Nike guy and I love New Era hats and I don't think New Era is allowed to make hats for the NFL anymore. ANYWAY GET RID OF THE PATCH PLEASE!!!

    Sorry, just had to vent. Anyhow let me know if you guys feel the same way about this as I do. Or if not let me know how you feel about the whole thing.

      its called marketing.
      a few years ago, teams had different sporting good companies making their apparel. But now reebok makes all the jerseys and apparel, and the patch is a way of unifying if u know what i mean.

      i actually like the patch, i think it looks neat.

                Here's a picture of it. Look at that ugly patch on the middle of the V-neck. Absolutely Hideous! I can't believe some of you guys like it. And I don't get your whole marketing thing anyway because they've always had the brand logo on the sleeves of the jersey to let you know who it was made by. And the thing about the MLB has a logo on the back of their fitted hats, that's the MLB logo. It's just a logo and not some big patched around that logo that says Equipment. Like I said they should have left it as it was before when it was just the NFL Shield.

                    It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be but it looks out of place where it is.

                        "...You don't see the NBA, NHL, or MLB ..."

                        No.. you don't see those other leagues doing it. You also don't see them have a salary cap.. and you also see more people watching the NFL DRAFT more than the NBA playoffs. You also see hockey will probably be gone next season.... I'm pretty glad we don't follow ANY of their steps.
