I don't think he hated them, he always wore an Orange Tie on the sidelines.

I think it was more about money and distancing himself from previous ownership.

And Ray Crocket kept falling down.

I loved Ray's play, he was one of our top 5 CB's ever but he said he had Hammy issues all day and it was wet if I remember.

I'm almost certain I read an article back at the time of the switch, and it was a marketing issue only.

Sales were down and after researching, they felt the "average" fan didn't want to wear orange on a daily basis, so they switched the color to blue. ( and of course changed the logo).

What they missed was that winning helped sales, not wholesale changes in uniform/logo. I have no doubt sales would have jumped just as much had we won those SuperBowls in the old unis.

Is that because it would match his skin tone and the players couldn't see him on the sideline? I kid. I loved Shanny.

I can't believe its been that long since the Broncos have worn the old traditional unis--2001? It just doesn't seem that long ago.

I know. Can't believe they don't bust them out more. Maybe if we get enough fan support they will. Isn't that a big reason they switched to the orange this year?

the broncos have to announce their uniform choices prior to the season. This year the broncos decided to wear orange for every home game.
I disagree, I think an all blue set up for the throwback would be nice to see. But my favorite is the Red/Orange uniforms of the early 70's is my favorite.

What's the point of having a league if everybody just does their own thing?
