For obvious reasons we pay a lot of attention to team uniforms and how they change from year to year. The college football season had a lot going on in the uniform world this year, particularly with the Oregon Ducks. In case you don't know, the Ducks wore a different uniform every game this season. Here is what they wore last night in the BCS Championship.
In England's Premier League the teams wear new uniforms every season, often changing colors of their second or alternate uniform. For example, Liverpool's colors are red and white, always have been and probably always will be. They always have a red based uniform.
But along with that, they've recently had green, black, and yellow uniforms.
Besides the obvious revenue boost for the teams, we do see an upside to this. It's kind of fun to get a new look every year. And historically speaking, it makes it interesting to look at old footage or images and know what year it is by recognizing the uniform that was worn that season.
This trend seems to be picking up speed here, not only with Oregon, but with most teams now having third or alternate jerseys.
The other side of the coin has merit too. There is definitely something to be said for iconic uniforms that hardly ever change. Think Yankees, or even Celtics. There's something comfortable in the familiar, don't you think?
So how do you all feel about this? Do you like the idea of each team having many looks, changing from year to year? Or, do you prefer tradition? Let us know.
