New Packers Alternate Jersey

I don’t like the Green Bay Packers. This is probably only the second time they have ever been mentioned on my blog, but I had to post this.

I consider myself a jersey enthusiast. I collect jerseys, I like looking at them, and I would say I appreciate them more than the everyday fan. When I came across this picture of the new Packers third alternate jersey today, I was disgusted. These are terrible!

JSOnline.com

A Packers team official confirmed Tuesday that the Packers will wear an alternate third jersey during the 2010 season to go with the normal home and road uniforms. The new jersey, expected to borrow from the franchise's long history, will be worn for at least one home game, the official said.

It is possible the jersey will be worn at another game, but a final decision has not yet been made.


I am usually a fan of throwback jerseys. I think teams should do it more often, but this thing is terrible. And yes, those are brown helmets. Those jerseys look like they should be used for target practice instead of football.

  1. They are replicas of their 1929 jerseys. its not supposed to look modern and awesome, its a reminder of how the packers, and football, started. I think you do some more research before claiming to be a great jersey enthusiast and make yourself look really stupid.

  2. I understand what they are. I get that they are throwbacks to earlier times. That is usually what "throwback" means Dan.

    If your old throwback jersey is hideous like these are, then you probably shouldn't do it. There are plenty of teams who bring back their older jerseys, but they dont look as pitiful as that thing the Packers are pulling out.

    Just off the top of my head, the Cowboys, Chargers, Cavs, etc...have all pulled out throwbacks to use, but they actually look good, unlike these target practice jerseys.

  3. Maybe you should stop making yourself look stupid by assuming things.

    I never said anywhere that these were supposed to look "modern." They are just ugly throwbacks. Obviously your opinion doesn't match mine.

  4. Yeah, bad look. Just because something worked in the late 20's doesn't mean it works now. Look at the 90's. I would hope that in 80 years teams aren't throwing back to their 90's jerseys, because for the most part they were hideous and dated. Same situation here.

  10. this guys a fucking douche bag if you ask me, real fans appreciate a teams history, not just how pretty their jerseys look. Who cares if theyre "hideous" they are symbolic to the appreciation we have toward the guys who made the green bay packers who they are today! GO PACK GO!

  12. I think everyone should pull out the throwback jerseys sometime no matter how they look. and I also think this guy is a fucking idiot. who cares if they are hideous. they are just showing the history of the team. I think the jerseys are nice and if you say stupid shit like this you should be ready to get lots of angry posts

  13. If Trey was a TRUE jersey enthusiast, he would be all over a throwback from any historic franchise. I hate the Packers, and even I think this jersey is pretty cool. The fact that their replica is from SO LONG AGO, doesn't have TEAL, or black, or whatever color Trey thinks is hip, just means real fans appreciate history when they see it...

  14. Jersey is hideous. I dont care about the history behind it, that has nothing to do with how the jersey looks. Its ugly and anyone who buys it is wasting money.
