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!
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.
