  • My Raiders Uniform Update Concept

    Okay, I decided to do the whole AFC West, and next is the Raiders.

    I said in my Chiefs uniform thread that I thought the Raiders needed a little bit of updating, but not much.

    Please note, on the away uniforms, the pants are ALTERNATE pants. I only had two places to show pants and I used that to show the black ones. The primary pants would always be silver.

    I do not like it.

    I do hope that you aren't getting any "ideas" on how to ruin the Browns uniform.
    The Browns are gone; I'm not a fan of the Impostors

    The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?

      I'll be doing every NFL team. Some will have minor changes, some major.

      The Browns, I wouldn't change much to be honest.

        If that floats your boat. But, just to let you know ahead of time, I won't like it. Now, if you changed that post to say.

        "I'll be doing most NFL teams, some will ahve minor (or none) and others will have major. The Browns, I won't be doing anything to them, to be honest."

        Then I'd be fine. Just to let you know, I really don't like the tone of: "I wouldn't change much".

        The smallest little thing, could potentially ruin something.

        I am a firm traditionalist. Browns don't have cheerleaders - I'm glad. I don't like the Browns owners recent (as in a few years ago) comments about bringing cheerleaders.

        But, back to the Raiders.

        I don't like the changes you made. I feel tradition is something to uphold and honor. Sure, your changes may be relatively minor to the Raiders. But I do not like them. I think the Raiders jersey that exists currently, is just fine.

        This jersey, looks more like one I've seen the Jaguars wear before as an alternate.

          Want to know what I'd do to the Browns?

          - Get rid of the gray facemask and change it back to white.
          - Get rid of the "AL" on the sleeve.
          - Possibly move the stripes up on the sleeve a little bit (to compensate for the every shortening sleeves of jerseys nowadays)
          - Bring back the "B" football logo as a primary logo.
          - Bring back an alternate orange jersey (which I know you don't like, but I do, so that's my personal choice there)
          - Bring back the orange pants as an alternate choice to go with the white jersey.
          - Possibly add an outline to the numbers. (I'm still undecided on this one though)

            I like it for another team outside the NFL, maybe high school or college. The one thing about this is that when you look at the uniform, it doesn't say Raiders. A plain black jersey with silver letters says it all. Even the pirate. Too much legendary history and tradition to change it even slightly, and every Raider fan would agree. It's too classic.

              Ok, let's go through this.

              The Browns original facemask was grey, not white. I was ecstatic that they finally brought back the grey facemask as that is one thing that the fans wanted.

              The "AL" are on the jerseys in remembrance of Alfred Lerner, the owner that brought the Browns back to Cleveland. The AL is going nowhere.

              The Stripes are fine where they are.

              The Browns "B" logo was created in 2003. I hate the <B> logo. The Browns logo is the Browns helmet. The only other "emblem" I like in any form is the Brownie elf. As that was the Browns original emblem from 1946 untill Modell bought the team and changed it to either the Helmet or simply "Cleveland Browns".

              The Browns orange jersey is a travesty, was when they made it. Browns fans demanded the team get rid of it. The team obliged.

              The Orange pants were created in the seventies. Prior to that, they never existed. The Orange pants were a fad and hopefully the Brown pants are the same (so far, looks like it was)

                So Charlie....

                How would you feel if tradition involved black and mustard yellow vertically striped socks?

                  If that was the Browns tradition and the Browns wore that for great lengths of time, then I'd be all for it. However, that is a hypothetical as the Browns never wore that. The Broncos did however, but for a very short period of time and got rid of them. Now, if you want to talk about the Broncos tradition. The Broncos tradition is this:



                  The Raiders jerseys I remember are pretty much what they are wearing now (with minor exceptions).

                  Same with the Chiefs. Chargers? I miss their old jerseys. They look like an XFL team (or Arena League even) now

                    Well, there's the other orange jerseys we wore that had the orange helmets and the white horse.

                    Unfortunately, I can't say that we actually have a traditional uniform even though we're from the AFL.

                      Most of Denver's history has been spent in the jersey I put up (or one similar to it). People today don't respect that. Instead they decide they want to play into fads. The "Goth" fad is pretty big right now because of terrible movies like the Twilight series. So, does that mean everything has to be black and pale with fangs?

                          WD, I like it. I've always thought the Raiders needed a tweak to their uni, mainly to the jersey. Their jersey has always been boring - no stripes, just black or white with numbers. Too plain. And I never liked the road white jersey with silver pants. Black pants would be better, like what you did. I can appreciate the sentiment of the traditionalists like Charlie Brown and DevilSpawn, but sometimes a team needs an update. I wasn't too thrilled when the Broncos changed to the current uni, but it grew on me (maybe winning a SB the first year wearing them had something to do with that )

                              I fixed up the uniforms. Thinking about what DS said, I kept looking at them and the white outlines didn't fit, I don't know why but they just didn't look right.

                              I also didn't like the double striping on the pants, so I fixed that too. I think it looks much better now.

                              I just updated the image, so you'll have to refresh if you've already seen the other one.
