Default Uniform question

Is the blue on the helmet lighter? It seemed like it during the game the other night but Im not sure if it was the lighting in the stadium that made it appear that way or what.

All I know is that one of the swooshes is backwards.

It's just the luminescence coming off the shade of orange they chose for the jerseys.

It might have something to do with the Orange jerseys making the Blue look lighter. IDK.

I'm glad I'm not the only one....I thought the blue on the helmet looked a little lighter to me as well.

I freaking hate the blue collar. Looks like a Jersey crossed with a polo shirt. We are the Denver Preppies.

Reference the backwards swoosh:
http://deadspin.com/5934351/backward...rong-or-stupid

"Nike's answer is that the swoosh is not backward—that the fat end is supposed to always face forward, with the skinny end trailing behind, like it does on either side of a running shoe. This is the same logic the American military uses for having soldiers wear their flag sleeve patches backward, contrary to the normal flag code: the troops are like human flagpoles, so the flag is meant to look as if it's streaming out behind them."

I think it was the orange nuclear powered jerseys that made it look like the blue was lighter.

The helmets looked like the same old blue in the chicago game.

Ya it's blinding. Especially when they used cameras other than the main one that shows the plays.

It's gotta be because of the Orange. They didn't look that light in the road jerseys last week.

FYI the colors aren't that neon in person. It is mostly the fault of the TV broadcast. They will look less severe when CBS takes over.

I think CBS would still be in black and white if there was away they could get away with it.

This could be as well. I just remember two years ago watching a preseason game on CBS 4. The uniforms were just as neon. Then I watched the reply of the other team's new crew on NFL Network and it was like they were almost grey. Way more muted tones. Not sure why, but our local affiliates are apparently into shooting things to look like the Wizard of Oz.

As a side note, the green on the Seattle uniforms also looked "garish"... "gotta-wear-sunglasses-to-look-at-that" fluorescent lime.

I thought it did look a tad lighter, also the orange jerseys looked extremely bright, at least it did on my TV. I was thinking my color contrast might need some adjusting.

Those Orange Jerseys were GLOWING on my screen last game.

But I loved it. I'm not even going to b**** about the side swooshes and preppy collar. We got our ORANGE back. Maybe not the shade some people want... or the stripes etc.

But... We got our Orange Back!

Whoooooooooooooooooooohooooooooooooo!!!!!!
