Packers reject all uniform changes

I passed along a link Tuesday to view the individual team pages for Nike's rollout of 2012 NFL uniforms. If you scrolled over to the Green Bay Packers' page, you saw this note: "The Green Bay Packers have chosen to stay with their traditional design aesthetic as well as their former uniform fabrication for the coming season."

What exactly does that mean? I sought some clarity from the Packers, and here's what I can tell you:

Most team uniform styles were changed in subtle ways. For example, the Detroit Lions have a duller version of gray on their pants. Some teams have new-look collars. The Chicago Bears moved their television numbers from the sleeves of the jerseys to the shoulders.

The Packers allowed absolutely no changes to their classic look, not even the most simple alteration in color or shade. The only difference is the Nike logo, according to spokesman Aaron Popkey.

The Packers also decided against using the new technology Nike introduced as part of this transition, including a different fabric that is purported to be lighter, especially when wet. But that issue could be revisited after the 2012 season. "We are open-minded on that aspect," Popkey said.

The Packers were among a handful of NFL teams to reject the new trappings of the uniform change. Your responses were mostly supportive, from what I could see. Via Twitter, @matsonscotty wrote: "packers unis didn't change at all. Just as it should be." Many of you agreed.

But a handful were hoping for a fresh look. @Whiledayes wrote: "It's upsetting no NFCN teams took the leap [Seattle] did. Thought this was a game about fwd progress."

None of us should have been expecting the Packers would make significant changes to their uniforms, and frankly we shouldn't be surprised to hear they rejected every single possibility. The Packers have gotten a bit more corporate in recent years, but let's not get crazy here. For now, people who wanted to change will have to be happy with newly colored shoes and cooler gloves.

Good. Jersey didn't need changing. Although, the Packers should consider what they're missing on the tech end of things.

Some teams don't need to change..

My Browns only had subtle changes done to their uniforms as well.. I kind of like the new fabric look though. Not yet sure about the new collar. Our is all brown so it doesn't stand out as much, but some teams have mult-colored collars.

The Packers have had the same uniform scheme for ages and why would they change now.........they want to stay with the traditional look.

So the Packers have enough honor and dignity not to change their uniforms, but not enough honor and dignity to not sell worthless stocks to bozo fans.

stop while you're not ahead.

Anyway, I agree that the uniform design shouldn't be touched, but we definitely should consider the new tech. All the players agree that the current pants are a lot more restricting than they should be and they feel they play better in the style of pants Nike has made (it's similar to the fabric of the pants on our classic uniforms). Not to mention, it's odd of them to reject the changes when we were one of the first teams testing out Reebok's new tech just a couple of years ago. Ah well, hope they change their mind for the 2013 season.

Their color scheme/combination is just not appealing. Maybe they should consider adding some black or gray in the mix to help it blend and their shade of yellow could look a little nicer too instead of that mustard yellow. Oregon makes their colors look good. They should consider trying something like this...

Hell no, ain't nothing wrong with our color scheme. That Oregon sh*t looks ugly to me. Maybe it's a Packer thing.

I like change and I think everyone should get new uniforms.


Doesn't mean you have to wear them.. Teams can choose to play in the traditional uniforms if they want but I like all the Pro Combat unis and wish the NFL would stop living in the past.
