Great, more money to spend! But whose jersey do I buy???

Not sure who to buy.

Hutchinson for sure. Like K.Will but now much longer is he signed for.

So they will be on sale just prior to the NFL Drfat weekend, just as I speculated.

Ill go with Hutch as well. I'll probably grab K.Will and hopefully a white jersey

The last two white jerseys I bought turned out bad. Two years ago i bought a Moss - He got injured that year and then traded in the offseason

The next year i bought Culpepper - Same shit

Maybe I'll stay away from white.

TMAC604
04-04-2006, 11:20 PM
T Will maybe - I'll probably buy whoever they draft in the first round

I hope its CULTER - that would look awesome

04-04-2006, 11:22 PM

I had his jersey last year. Not sure if I will pick up the new one or not... kinda like the throwback with the old number.

Ernie Sims Vikes jersey baby!! I don't care if he doesn't get drafted by the us, lol.

A darker purple will be solid. I'm always watching that HSN NFL show before Monday Night Football hoping to see something kick arse for the Vikes but end up cringing when they show it. It's always predominantly our purple but the purple is bright as hell. It never looks right. Hopefully this darker shade will open up a whole new line of sweet jackets, shirts, etc.

I like the idea of making the purple a little darker, but I hope they don't end up looling like the Ravens of the midwest. Hopefully they are unique.

ThePurplePotato
04-05-2006, 12:35 AM
I'll wait to see who they draft before getting a new one. If it's A.J. Hawk, I'm buying one immediately. He's a monster.

We won't look like the Ravens, because we don't suck. :razz:

I would definately take an A.J. Hawk jersey, but I highly highly doubt he would be available when we draft

I agree but if we move into the top 5 I think we should take Hawk. I think the only QB we should draft that high is Leinart but I think we'll have to get at least pick 3 to get him. If we can pry the fifth overall pick away from Green Bay we should take Hawk but I don't see them helping us out AT ALL.

Man, I can't wait to see them. I will be going for the Brad Johnson jersey. This gives me three weeks to pay off my credit card. So I better hurry!!

there is no way I would trade with the fudge packers

It will never happen. They won't do anything to help our team out unless it involves our first round picks for the next 10 years.

I'll probably get a Sharper, hopefully he retires a Viking!

04-05-2006, 01:19 AM
I think I will either be getting Sharper or Taylor this year. I am due for a new jersey I have had my Jimmy K one for the last 5 years I think. Its time to get a new one. I still love Jimmy K. but I think its time for a new player.

I've spent so much money on jerseys where the people aren't Vikings anymore. Now I got smart. I buy customized jerseys with my own name and number on them. They are pretty neat. I know they are expensive but when you think about wasting the money on the people that come and go it's more of a savings. The real jerseys custom made cost me last year about $291 each with shipping and handling. I will do the same thing this year with the new jersey.

I have considered doing a custom made Jersey also for years now. But like you said its so expensive!!!

What if your last name is Green or Favre or something like that. Then you're screwed.

FedjeViking: You are one SMART woman. I may be an el-chepo but I would NEVER spend that kind of money on a jersey that I may only get to wear a year!
Either go retro or go with your own name!

People we are not going to end up looking like the ravens, even if our purple is the EXACT same color. No matter what, our colors are purple and gold and their colors are purple and black. So unless you constantly confuse the cardinals for the chiefs, I don't think there will be a problem.

The Raven's stole our old shade of purple anyhow IMO.

Well, ok it's a tiny bit lighter, but not by much.

On the vikings website provide this link
It shows the vikings away jerseys in a player photo which are almost silver not that bland white they use to have.

It will be great to see the new uni's which will be unveiled probably April 27th I heard from another thread that the purple is going to be darker which I don't really like. Hopefully it will be good if they keep the horns.

It is interesting that most of the players in this darker jersey are new to the team. I wonder if it is a website color issue or a sneak peak.

I guess we'll see . . .

VikesFan4Life
04-05-2006, 04:06 AM
Those jerseys have been Photoshopped onto the players. And poorly, I might add.

They haven't taken any new team pictures of the free agents we picked up in their new unis yet.

It's just the shadowing or something playing tricks on you. That's why they look silver.

Are they selling Moss or DC jerseys? Those are my favorites. J/K

The only jersey I do own is an away jersey of Randy!!!

best way to do it, think next time I get a jersey it may be a customised one - that way I don't have to retire my jerseys when players get traded - as with my Moss & Culpepper shirts !

When I finally break down and decide to get my "Authentic" customized jersey, it will say:

VIKESFAN4LIFE #00

Always liked the ol' double zero. Fits me perfectly!

That is a good idea. I like my customized jersey. I have the away one. I have my last name and the number 4 on it. I do get comments from people that don't know me. They are always asking who Matregrano is. That of course is me. Like I said it turns out to be cheaper. You take care of it well and it will last a long time. Not only that but you don't ever have to retire it. All my Moss and Pep jerseys won't be worn anymore. The only way I will ever get a player again is if it's someone that retires a Viking and it's their throwback. I would get one for Cris Carter and Fran Tarkington.
