I was wondering why the Pack virtually never wears throwbacks and/or alternate jerseys?

I think the yellow alternates look pretty good, not great, but pretty good. Plus, that would actually sell them. Seen them on nflshop.com a couple of times, but I can't imagine anyone spending money on those.

The blue-yellow throwbacks would be pretty cool aswell, just to wear once or so. That would also give a boost in sales and they just look quite cool. It's not like we have to wear light clothes because of the weather.

What do you guys think about this?

I was a fan of the yelllow jersey u have in that link. They had that jersey in NFL 2k5. I'd like to see em wear that, I don't think they ever have before. From what I hear though, alot of people hate those jerseys, think they're ugly. I wouldnt mind seeing em play in the gold jersey. I also like the throwback, I could see them wearing that once every 2 or 3 years.

If the players have to wear a throw back in a game, coach M should have to wear a grey overcoat and a fedora in the same game..

I kno it's not much of a change but how bout those throwbacks from the mid 80's with the stripes on the socks and the "G" on the shoulder. They don't look too bad.

^That's a pretty cool link which im sure most of you have seen. Check out those '94 jerseys Ron Wolf thought about changing too. Those look like a decent alternate, but really it's too different from our Home jersey to be an alternate, imo.

I made a post when I was fairly new to PH and I REALLY wanted White on White for Away games. Thats still stands. Throwbacks would be nice too. But I feel those should be saved for Thanksgiving.

We'd look like a bunch of bananas on the field. I didnt care much for those unis in 2K5.

+1 because you played the greatest video football game to date.

I thought it was ok. I switched to Madden 07 eventually though, I still don't get why it is the most amazing game ever. (Although it did start my packer fandom).

On those alternates, it's an impression of the site owner if I read it correctly last time. Wolf did indeed want to change it, but he never actually made the drawings if I'm correct.

I'd like to see them take the field in both uniforms. Maybe alternating between them every year?

Like I said in another thread i would love for the Packers to make a 1/2 and 1/2 jersey. They have them out here for the Steelers and they look sharp (not shannon or sterling lol) They are 1/2 black and 1/2 white basically the road and home jerseys combined. They are huge sellers here. I know they can't wear them in a game but for the fans to buy i think it would be great i would even think about buying a Rodgers jersey lol.

I think it would be fun to see the offense and defense wearing different uniforms. It would be an interesting visual spectacle watching offensive and defensive players mingling on the sidelines -- and to see the different faces of the team on the field. We could have the offense wearing the normal colors and the defense wearing throwbacks. Or they could alternate every week.

Given that the league owns the rights to team insignias, and insignias are trademarked, does anyone know if teams have to pay the league for the right to change their colors?

Didn't we wear some alternative jerseys a few years ago? The one with the stripes on the socks instead of the green band, and reverse for the sleeves?

we could turn into Oregon. They have something crazy like 23 uniform combinations that they can make out of all their various uniforms.

Throwbacks when they play the Bears, who should also wear throwbacks, that would bring something back to the oldest rivalry in the NFL but both teams would look rather strange. Lleather helmets would be cool too but with todays health and safety standards and the primadonna players of today that probably wouldn't fly.

Brett Favre wore the darker one when he ran for that long touchdown against the bears, so bring it back!

Throw backs, OK, I may not like them, but I can live with them. Creating alternate jerseys just for the sake of revenue, I don't agree with. That is the Cowboys way, and i would prefer the Pack not do anything to be compared to them, unless it is winning titles.

Well, I can't say that I didn't think of the revenue when I made this thread. After all, if we get some uncapped years, we better have some reserves. Also, some extra income in unstable financial years is always nice.

The second thing though, is that they just look great. I was checking out some jerseys on the NFL Shop site, noticed the yellow ones, and I wondered why we're never wearing them, as they look great.
