Having seen the new jersey now in stores, I think they look pretty jenky as a stand-alone. I wouldn't buy one but I'd never buy a football jersey to begin with anyway. Look very boring and almost like a cheap knock-off of what a real, properly designed one would look like.

We'll see what they look like on the field and how they hold up over time, but I'm not holding my breathe. I just can't seen them aging very well.

I'm starting to not like how the stripe flares up in the back.

I like it how they are in the front. Just straight stripes.

Everything else is good though.

I third that. I know it's supposed to symbolize the bow on the boat (or sail), but I just don't like it. Would be much better with just horizontal stripes, and it seems like almost all of us thinks this way.

Any chance it could be changed between seasons?

are you kidding me? it's a UNIFORM. does it in any way matter as much as winning games?

Settle down Tim Gunn. There will be no uniform changes for at least a decade.

Look, I don't believe they will change it. My question was more towards the uniform rules: are they allowed to change it if they want to or does this count as a significant change to the jerseys and will not be allowed for the next five years (if i remember the jersey rules correctly, read something about it a year ago).

Sorry that I was not very clear about this in my previous post.

I think that the uniforms are okay. Uniforms don't determine how the vikings play on the field but from a visual perspective, they are okay. I can't wait to see them in action.

Like others, I am not a fan of the swoosh in the back of the stripes. But i'm sure it will grow on me.

I don't think the swoosh will be near as noticeable during a game as you might think.

Originally i did not like the stripes on the back, they have grown on me. I need to go look at one in at the store before i even think about getting one. I think i will probably wait until they paly a few games in them.

I like everything but the numbers. The number 8 looks like a backwards B.

Yeah, teams do little tweaks like that all the time, wouldn't count as a complete over-haul. I could see it happening if they want to keep this design for 10-20-ish years, I could see them getting sick of it and switch to straight stripes.

I personally donno why people are complaining about stuff on the uniform. In reality, it's nitpicking. No matter what, people are going to like certain things and dislike certain things. Regardless, this uniform is an upgrade over our previous uni, and it incorporates Viking-esque stuff, notably the serifs on the numbers, sleeves and names. I personally like the little things they put ino the uniform. They don't stand out in any huge way, but they do give a unique look to the uniform, and that's cool with me. I don't want a cookie cutter look, and I don't want a wild look. They went with a very very classic styling with a few minor tweaks. I think it's all a job well done. Overall the uniform is an upgrade, so I don't know why it is getting a bad wrap already
