View Full Version : Vikings Uniform Poll...being watched by Vikings marketing!

I frequent quite a few Vikings fan sites. One of my favorite is the one Mr. Cheer or Die does. Now, he is also rather "in" with some of the Vikings folks in Winter Park and the marketing department over there is watching a poll that he has put up on the possible addition of purple pants to the uniform. What that means is we all need to head on over to:

http://blog.lib.umn.edu/maasx003/Vikings/

and put our humble opinion to work so we feel as if we have some say in how the Vikings new look for 2006 goes. Just scroll down until you see the first poll on the home uniforms and then head on down for another poll.

I would normally not tout another website, but Mr. Cheer or Die was good to participate with us in the MVC Survivor Contest and he is a solid fan (1st inductee in the Fan Hall of Fame for the Vikings).

Until next time...

Thanks AV.

Looks like the poll is setup as Home vs Away jerseys.

Home:
purple jersey & purple pants
purple jersey & white pants
not sure

Away:
white jersey & purple pants
white jersey & white pants
not sure

You have to use your imagination. The background of this post is white. The color of this website is mostly purple. Picture those two colors on the jersey or pants and you got it. :lol:

I voted purple pants/purple jerseys for home games.
purple pants/white jerseys for away games.


If we are going to make a difference, may as well change both home and away games..

Nope - no pictures as none have been released by the Vikes yet. It's more to get a general idea of how people feel about things.
No-one outside of the Vikes organisation has seen any pictures of the changes they're looking at, so you'll have to use your imagination

I seem to recall reading that many years ago the Vikes used to wear purple pants with white jerseys for road games. That sound ok but have to agree that purple jerseys and pants may be a bit too much

I posted these in the other thread, but it seemed like nobody saw them or cared. I thought I did a fair job to make it somewhat realistic to give an idea of what it would look like with purple pants, at least at home. Hopefully they help you guys out with your poll choices:

Boy, dis takes me back. I remember back when I was a punk kid, me and my boys would get home from da reform school and play dese football board games we had, Sports Illustrated Football, Strat-O-Matic, you name it. I especially liked da board games cause you rolled dice, and it kept me in practice for when we played craps.

One game we played a lot, was APBA Football. It had cards of all da players of da NFL teams, and you put togedda your lineup and went at it. I remember orderin' da game, and when it came in, lo and behold, on da cover of da game was a color photo of da Vikes playin' da Colts, Baltimore Colts back den, God bless 'em.

But, dere was sumpin' funny about dat picture. It showed da Vikes in dere away joiseys, but wit' poiple pants! And instead of da coicles around da shoulder pads, poiple-gold-poiple, dey had da revoise of da white stripes around da dark joisey sleeves, y'know? Da white joiseys had poiple stripes on da sleeves!

And, y'know, it wasn't really bad. It was different, but not bad. If dey do dat kinda ting, I won't get sore, y'know? Give 'em a retro kinda look.

Anyways, enough of trippin' down mammary lane, I voted for da away uniform to be white joiseys wit' poiple pants, and da home uniform to be poiple joiseys wit' white pants. But, tanks ta KJ, I got ta see what da home uniforms would look like wit' all poiple, an' dey don't look dat bad. Better wit' da gold stripe on 'em, tho. But me, I likes poiple, and it's a bedda color dan dat bowel-green color dat da Seahawks use, y'know?

Are da Vikes really gonna pay attention to dis poll? Dat would be sumpin'! We would have a say in what our Vikes look like, y'know?

Well, da screws are herdin' us back to our cells, so's I'll sees youse mugs later. SKOL, VIKES!

I would like to see something similar to the Bronco's jerseys. How that arrow starts at the sleeves of their jerseys, and then connects to their pants, and goes down the side. Those are sweet...

They should reall try the purple pants next season. I don't think they should or will mess with the helmet design, but you never know. Is this is Denver and Tampa Bay type of change, or is it a slight alteration? I guess we will find out soon.

I've gotta go with VikesfaninWis on this one. Apply our colors to the Broncos scheme (NO HELMET CHANGE though). It worked for them, maybe it could work for us.
I really don't mind the idea of buying new jerseys- looks more current. Also generates ca$h for the TEAM.
We would finally have real "throwback" uni's for those special games. Even though I've watched since the mid 60's, sometimes I can't tell the difference because they're so subtle.
New team, new attitude, new uniforms...makes sense to me.

The Lions, 49ers, Rams, and Seahawks added a few changes and really improved the look. The new Hawks & Rams look much better with the new coloring and the Lions & 49ers just tweaked things a bit.

I'd like to see some tweaking, but nothing major - especially with the helmet.

I guess we'll see what happens.

I think first of all they should get rid of the horns on the helmet and put the old Viking face on each side of the helmet. I think it is one of the coolest NFL logos!

As for the pants, how about bronze, or similar to what the RAMS have...please no purple pants!! :???:

sleepagent
03-19-2006, 05:36 PM
What I can see of the uniform looks good EXCEPT for the helmet. Keep them horns. The rest is a fresh change, simple, yet somehow powerful

ViKing24
03-19-2006, 08:09 PM
Briefly: Jermaine Wiggins, Matt Birk, Antoine Winfield and Brad Johnson were in New York on Tuesday for a photo shoot of them modeling newly designed Vikings uniforms. The pictures will be featured on billboards around the Twin Cities.
Steve LaCroix, Vikings vice president of sales and marketing, confirmed the uniform change, although he declined to say to what extent.
"We are working with the NFL and Reebok on some exciting changes for the 2006 season. The process is still continuing, but we'll look to have an unveiling later in the offseason for our fans," he said.
Per NFL policy, teams can change uniforms every five years and are allowed to add a third uniform that can be worn in two regular-season games and one exhibition game each year.
_Childress told Sirius NFL Radio that he expected the Seahawks to take the full seven days - until next Sunday - to make a decision on Hutchinson.
"He's a good football player," Childress said. "We'd love to have him on our team." n Guard Toniu Fonoti agreed in principle on a one-year deal Monday with the Oakland Raiders. He is guaranteed $415,000 of his $1 million salary. Fonoti, however, has not signed the contract. The Vikings traded a seventh-round pick to the San Diego Chargers for Fonoti last year. But Fonoti played in only three games before suffering a season-ending groin injury.

i'll only allow a helmet change if we actually put real horns on it...

i think the vikes helmet is one of the simplest and coolest...
it would be a bad move to put the vikes head on the helmet.. its look like the denver helmet, or bills helmet.. i dont like helmets like those...

anyways... i'm excited about uniform changes.. change is good..
look what it did for the broncos.. chnage the uniform, win the Super Bowl (it was against the packers granted)

03-19-2006, 09:08 PM
Thier not gonna change the helmets, hince the title "jersey change". We're doing what the cardinals did last year, new unis and touching up the logo. Last year I read article and in it Wilf said the logo will be touched up, wether he ment the helmet or the just our logo idk, but probably the horns will be adjusted to look even better.

That's actually interesting. I don't agree with losing the horns, those have to stay, But look what making some minor changes to colors did do for the rams uniforms. The bronze or whatever it is, is definately better than the Ram's old gold/yellow and the darker blue is better IMO, too.

So the Vikes could keep the horns, darken up the purple a bit, and mabye try changing the gold/yellow to more of a gold/bronze look. That could look pretty cool. Better than purple jersys and purple pants for home IMO

Any body have the ability to make up a uniform with those changes to get a better Idea if it is a good or bad Idea?

We need to have purple jerseys with purple pants

Change their boring all white jerseys to yellow and purple with white pants with more of a design on them

They better not change the helmet that is classic I mean horns on the helmet worn by the crusading vikings
Then Horns on the football team the vikings genius

However it might be nice to see those black alternate jerseys once or twice a year.

What is the deal with those black alternative jerseys? I see them around but the team has never worn them in a game have they? Is it just a marketing gimmick to sell jerseys or what?

Look at these:


http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a101/jonoppold/NewVikingsJerseys.jpg

Alotta you'z won't like it because I'm "messing with tradition", but in this day-in-age, if tradition doesn't sell tickets....its not important to the organization....now that we got rid of our last "cornerstone player" who sells mucho jerseys, we redo the jerseys and cash in on the original one in stores later on as "throwbacks" when new stars arise....its a very smart marketing plan by the Wilfs....

And yes, the traditionalists will b!tch and moan, but those same people are the die hards who love the Vikes no matter what, so they'll conform either way.....

Note: These aren't the real jerseys, but the new jerseys will be changed drastically if all indications about the new uniforms is true (more drastic than just purple pants, changing pant color does not require players to be fitted in NYC....you use a different dye and they fit the same as the old pants....)

The black and purple would obviously be a "alternate" which means its not our set color or the team's official colors. I'm not a Raven fan, but thier all black unis are sick. Just create a team on Madden or something using those colors and tell me what you think.

I agree. This is the perfect time to launch a new uniform. Its tough though because I really like the current unis, and I like basic styles like few teams other than the Vikes have. But It will be cool to see what they come up with. I just hope it isn't too wild. Keep it basic with a few minor changes.

I always thought that purple pants would look good with away jerseys, but then I seen some old picks of when the vikes had that. Not sure if I was that impressed or not. But it can't hurt to try again.

IMO , I only wanna see purple pants away and keep purple top with white pants at home and maybe change the design of the jersey a LITTLE because why mess with perfection...... I don't want black in it, just MHO

I just think purple on purple is too dark and to add black in would be even worse, besides its not really one of our colors but yea maybe as an alternative jersey.

my 2 cents

Alotta you'z won't like it because I'm "messing with tradition", but in this day-in-age, if tradition doesn't sell tickets....its not important to the organization....now that we got rid of our last "cornerstone player" who sells mucho jerseys, we redo the jerseys and cash in on the original one in stores later on as "throwbacks" when new stars arise....its a very smart marketing plan by the Wilfs....

And yes, the traditionalists will b!tch and moan, but those same people are the die hards who love the Vikes no matter what, so they'll conform either way.....

Note: These aren't the real jerseys, but the new jerseys will be changed drastically if all indications about the new uniforms is true (more drastic than just purple pants, changing pant color does not require players to be fitted in NYC....you use a different dye and they fit the same as the old pants....)

The away ones look awesome, Im not too fond of the home ones though.

03-20-2006, 05:53 PM
Audio I think you have the right idea. I don't know of the away ones have enough white on them though. I mean they still have more purple than white. I'm guessing we aree going to go with a darker purple and a more goldish yellow, Rams style.

Is nobody a fan of golden pants?

Why are you guys so obsessed with the horns on the helmet? They don't look like horns they look like the Nike logo!

The old Viking face on each side of the Helmet would be so awesome, as for the Bronco type uniforms, I'll pass.

Stick as close to the original as you can. Purple pants?...Only if they are very dark. Someone mentioned a yellow jersey...yuk

Goldish/Bronze pants, with a white stripe and a bold purple stripe inside the white strip, would look cool, home or away. Of course again in my honest opinion the best change would be getting rid of the Nike logo on the helmet and going with the old Viking face!!

Ist of all they don't look like a Nike logo.

The horns have been on the helmet for 45 years (long before the Nike logo) & have been a tradition as long as the Vikings have.

No one that I know of has a problem with the horns.

If it ain't broke, don't try & fix it.

They were all repulsive !!!! I didn't like anything I saw. If the team were to go with something like what was shown, we're going to look like a XFL team !!!!!!!!!!! If a change has to be made, why not do like your beloved Giants Wilf,go throwback. In 2000 the Giants went back to the look of their old days, and it wasn't bad. Why not do the same here. Why not keep the helmet the same, but put a grey facemask on it. Go back to the jerseys the Vikings used up to 1995. Keep the white pants the same, the NFL dosen't market them anyway.Go back to black shoes.On the road , go back to the original "road" jerseys, white with purple and yellow stripes on the sleeves. That's a change that could produce $$$, wouldn't drastically alter the look of the team, and not upset the fans. The thought of purple on purple at home is nasty! I remember when the movie
"On Any Given Sunday" came out, the NFL made it clear that NO team in that film could resemble a NFL team. I remeber people in the lobby after the movie ended laughing at the silly uniforms in the film. "Black helmets, jerseys, and pants, how crappy that looked, no NFL team would ever look like that" was a comment I heard that I always think of when the Jaguars and Ravens go with that look.Damm if they don't look just like the Miami Sharks. Or when, a couple seasons ago, alot of teams statred to wear the same color jersey and pants. The Bears in blue from head to toe. The Broncos, Chargers,Cards,Saints, and Bills also started to sport the same color jersey and pants.IMO, it looks like something a high schol team would wear. I also remember an old NFL Films story of back in the mid 60's , the Vikings , on "one" Sunday, wore purple jerseys and purple pants, and how Bud Grant FORBIDDED them from ever doing that again.And thank GOD they haven't, 'till now?

How many knew that....so anyway...That wouldnt bother me.....but quit making the AWAY uni out to be ok....THATS the one you can go ahead a F with

These are concepts from the end of 2004. I like the logos - battle axe logo on pants (not a big fan of it being an alternate helmet), modern twist on the norseman, modern twist on the horns on the helmet.

I don't really like the jersey/pant combinations though. Maybe if they did away with the gold alternate pants and made the purple pants the alternate pants. Then use the white pants as both the standard for the home and away jerseys.

It would be great if the Vikings stayed with what they had but went darker on the purple and used purple pants(occasionally...like the Eagles?)

No Yellow/Gold jersey or pants......thats pretty F'd up.

Actually the best uniforms the viking s EVER had was 1972-73 when(quite a few teams actually!) were void of those all to common stripes. Dolphins,Cardinals, Raiders, and VIKINGS(see the game against dallas for the chamionship 1973 victory 27-10) The Vikings NEVER looked mightier than in that game....what a classic!

Unfortunately this is an online petition, and not one that will be taken seriously by the Vikings management. There is no quality control in this type of petition, and no guarentee as to how many signuature are fake. Look at sig number 806:

Cheer or Die's words:


"More Uniform Talk" by Mr. Cheer or Die

All this talk about changes to the uniform has me in lather. Especially when the rumors started popping about changes to the beloved, legendary Vikings helmet. It now takes not one, but two glasses of Irish Mist at bedtime to calm me down so I can slumber in peace. And I have since foregone on the ice.

Tonight, it may take three glasses. My close, personal friend Milwaukee Mark sent me the following which was something someone posted on the KFFL Vikings message board this week:

unis.jpg

Sickening, isn't it? Now, before you jump off the deep end, please consider that the source is unknown. Also key in on the dates which would correspond to the Red Menace administration prior to the Zygi administration. But, I'm sure the Triangle of Authority would have seen these prototypes and be working off of them.

I also have a lead into the new helmet design. My contact indicates that I may have the new design in my stone-cold hands within a week or two. So, standby and cross your fingers.

And as I alerted you to on Thursday, the Vikings did in fact sign Mike McMahon. I knew that my source at Winter Park would not have sent me the McMahon interview had the Vikings not had interest in signing him. Well, it is now official. McMahon signed a two-year contract to serve as Brad Johnson's backup. Also added was hard-hitting safety Tank Williams, 25, who had spent his four-year career with Tennessee.

And have a great weekend! Vikes Geek and I will see you next week.
