Re: New Cleveland Browns uniforms

According to USA Today, the Cleveland Browns, to honor their 60th anniversary, are altering their facemasks, shoes and jerseys to look more like the team's original uniforms. "The Browns wore gray facemasks and black shoes until they switched to white in 1975.... Also, the brown striping on the sleeves of their brown jerseys will be eliminated to resemble the jersey worn in the early years. The number on the back of the helmet will shift to the right of the stripe, rather than one numeral on each side, reflecting the style used in the 1960s." I dig the old school look, so this'll be pretty cool if you ask me. What do you think?

Cool Re: New Cleveland Browns uniforms

I think it's fine. I've always been a fan of black shoes in all sports.

Re: New Cleveland Browns uniforms

It seems to me that when teams change their uniforms, it changes their fortunes as well. How can we wear a throwback that looks like the same thing we already wear? Some of fans that I have read in other places or talked to who insist "don't change the tradition" are hysterical!! What tradition? Otto Graham and/or Marion Motley? They wore a WHITE helmet!! What tradition? Jim Brown? Do they think if they wear a uniform like his that they'll play like his team did? Has that worked in the 40 years since he last played here? After him, our only "tradition" has been LOSING!!! I agree with some of them that say that the helmet should not be touched, being that it IS THE TEAM LOGO!!! The jersey and pants don't need a drastic change AT ALL!! A classy and modern look would be a brown jersey with white numbers, possibly trimmed in a thin orange pinstripe, a thick orange stripe down the side that continues down the leg to a solid orange stripe around the calf. The orange stripe down the leg would be trimmed with a brown pinstripe on either side of the orange stripe. The pants could be white, but I believe that a very light tan as I have seen on some leather team jackets would be awesome. I use that particular color scheme on Madden, and it looks great. The white jersey would reverse the colors of the numbers and shirt, but remain exactly the same.

Hmm... the unregistered poster has a point. It worked for the Bucs, and now it's worked for the Browns. They're not punching bags anymore.

Re: New Cleveland Browns uniforms

I hope last night's (Monday night) was not the new package! Black pants w/ no stripes, yuck. I'm pretty sure the numbers were black, and I think the stripes on the jerseys and helmets were also black. They still are the Browns, aren't they?

Re: New Cleveland Browns uniforms

Going retro worked for both New York football teams. Let's see how it does for the Browns. The only thing is that the Browns uniforms are the plainest in the NFL even before they started taking off stripes and now they'll look twice as plain. No distinguishing marks are logos on them. I disagree with this move.

Looks like the Browns are now actually wearing brown.
