The San Francisco 49ers just unveiled their new alternative uniform for the upcoming 2015 season. And as a lifelong fan of the team, I thought I’d share my opinion of the new uniforms in five words: No, no, no, no, no!
What do I mean, you ask? I’ll explain.
No #1: They’re ugly.
No #2: They look cheap.
No #3: The franchise is trying to fix something that’s not broken. The 49ers have one of the best (if not the best) uniform in the league. Don’t mess with it. It’s like waking up one day to find out rainbows are now black and white.
No #4: The red, white, and gold is one of the classics in the NFL. It has represented excellence and is the banner of one of the most successful teams in NFL history. You simply do not toy around with that.
No #5: With the turmoil, chaos, and utter implosion the team suffered this past season, I’d recommend that a uniform change should be the least of their concerns.
There you have it. Although I remain a fathful fan of the team, I am not a fan of the alternate uniform.
