I like them ! looking forward to getting myself a customised version of the new jersey.
Think the purple pants look cool with the white road jerseys... some of the traditionalists won't like them but I can live with those

Kinda off the subject, but we've sure learned that the Vikings organization can keep a secret longer than what I ever suspected. That is refreshing!

They just shut down those links to the new uni's.

IMO, they are sweet. I like them. Good change I think

Also, I don't think they can go all purple or all white with the way the stripe on the pants transition to the stripe on the jersey

People need to know this.....

The color purple is VERY hard to make.

I have worked in the printing industry since 1987, and purple IS the HARDEST color to achieve !!

The best way to describe what I mean is , what happens when you adjust the tint on your television ?? The colors get all out screwed up..don't they?

If they tried to make the purple look less blue, the yellow would then turn greenish...

That's why they look blue.

For the last few seasons I've bought authentic jerseys from the NFL catalog, and the jerseys in the catolog pictures looked like the same blue-purple you've been seeing online. But when the jerseys arrived, they were PURPLE. They DID NOT look anything like the color in the catalog...so relax everyone. The jerseys are going to be the right color purple.

It's much easier to get the purple right on a computer than on a printing press. Billboards come from six or eight color printing presses, and in keeping with the color bar, purple is a MAJOR b!tch......

AUTHENTIC JERSEYS WONT BE AVAILABLE FOR AT LEAST 2 MONTHS
REPLICAS WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE. THIS IS BECAUSE OF THE DRAFT AND PRODUCTION RUNS.

After looking at those last links I have been swayed to the pro side. They are good jerseys. No need for a logo on the shoulder, just enough of the color yellow, and very very purple. They still aren't too original and I think the home jerseys have too much white, but the aways absolutely rock.

Gotta say I don't think I like what they did to the horn. The yellow half- moon type sliver has been lowered and it doesn't completely surround the base of the white horn. Just looks odd, but then again it is kind of hard to make it out completely. But why would they would even touch the helmet given that it was perfect?

I am really surpirised by the negative response that has shown up on this site. Personally I like the new uniforms. I too have been watching the Vikings since the Purple People Eater days, and I have liked every iteration of our uniform, including this one.

My favorite is easily the away jersey, and that is something new for me because I have never liked our away jersey before. It was always just so... plain. When we went to white pants for away too, it just because even more plain. The thought of purple pants with this new away jersey makes me excited for the season opener at Washington!

I also don't think the actual uniforms will be quite so blue. Hasn't anyone ever noticed that the vikings jerseys always look blue on TV? I think it has something to do with the shade of purple and the type of material that makes it hard to replicate the color outside HD.

Again, if you look at the picture of the players in just their pants and pads, the stripe on Birk's pants looks pretty purple to me. So do their undershirts, which would normall match the jersey.

I am pretty gol 'darnit stoked for these new jerseys.

I like the dark purple ones better.

I read an article that Vikings merchandise was hard to sell because the colors match NOTHING. That was the main drive for Tampa Bay to change colors. To boost sales.

I think if they did make them look more blue and orange (like the pictures look) it was a deliberate attempt to be able to sell more items.

I'm not blaming them. I am just saying I don't like the blue, I am a fan of the purple, and I know they would have a reason to change the uniforms to be more blue.

See the post I put a little while ago...

They're not blue.......

These unis ROCK! I knew they'd look better over pads!

I don't like the new player name font though, it looks like the one the Cowgirls use. And they got rid of the outline. That's my only complaint.

The new jerseys very modernized. You can see the resemblence with the Atlanta and the Cardinals jerseys. Not saying our's are as bad as the Cardinals, but still it's very clear that Reebok and the new trend of the more flashier/modern jerseys had an influence on designing these new uni's.

That last pic of Brad in the home jersey almost looks too Arena footballish. I think it is because of the numbers and how they are rounded...almost cartoonish looking. Other than that though, I cant help but smile when i try to imagine 11 players on a field wearing these uni's. Its gonna look sexy..haha

Anyways..I think its safe to say that they could have been a lot worse, so its hard to complain. However one thing is for certain, these Uni's would go really well in a new stadium.

It's on the hip of the pants now. Not as big as the one on the old sleeves.

Also on the back center of the shoulders.

Profootballtalk guy is a Vikings fan....and he hates the new uniforms.
I happen to dig them!

IT'S OFFICIAL -- VIKES' NEW UNIS ARE PUTRID

"Our friends at Viking Underground have forwarded to us more shots of the still-to-be-unveiled uniform modifications.

Excuse us for a minute whilst we go barf.

Yours truly was a rabid Vikings fans in the glory days of the 1970s (and, unfortunately, beyond), so we still feel a certain obligation to safeguard the organization and its tradition. That's partially why we were so hard on Mike Tice a/k/a Meathead No. 1 -- and why we now plan to give similar treatment to Fran Foley a/k/a Meathead No. 2.

Thus, we always will call it like we see it with the Vikes, and our position on the new getup is that we prefer never to see it.



The only truly good news is that the beloved horn has been retained -- and that it apparently has been modified to actually, you know, look like a horn.

And this calls to mind (again) our interview with Matt Birk from earlier this year, during which we talked to Matt about the fact that many folks don't know that the horm really is a horn.

PFT: Now tell me this, when you were a kid, did you know what the hell that thing was on the Vikings helmet?

Birk: No. No. Even looking at it now, it's a pretty poor depiction. It's supposed to kind of have that 3D look to it, like the horn actually is sticking out of the side of the helmet. I think it's time to update that, or at least get somebody to get a crack at it.

PFT: I think they should actually put horns on the side of the helmet. That's got aesthetic benefit and strategic benefit.

Birk: Yeah, that could be like a bull. You could hook the guy's jersey with the tip of your horns."

Well, nothing's official for another hour and a half, but if somebody photoshopped all of the right players (from the press release about the photo shoot in New York) into realistic looking jerseys that happen to match images that were hacked from the Vikings online merchandise store, and put them all in the setting of Giants stadium with accurate lighting and scale... well, then I'm giving up photoshop 'cause I've just been owned.

P.S. (and then managed to get his photoshopped work onto a billboard which someone else took a picture of and posted earlier in this thread....

I'm pretty sure that these are the right jerseys.)

It's a shame, I really kinda liked the Vikings jerseys. This is just another example of an NFL team updating their image to sell more jerseys. The worst unis in the league belong to the Falcons, and these new Vikes unis remind me of them a lil. Too much Arena Football influence. It's a shame to me the Vikes changed their unis.....

If the Vikes were in purple from head to toe, it would of looked like crap.......



Now are these the actual jersey's or not? I've seen different variations of these jersey's with both saying they are the new ones. I am lost here, could someone please tell me which ones are the correct ones please..

I think they're the real uniforms....

The all white combo looks amazing. In fact the away jersey in general rocks! I wonder if they will switch up the combinations a lot or just stick to the set two that they have. I think all purple would look horrible, but why not try it out for a game. I'm thinking that my new collection will actually have more away jerseys than home ones.

Every Vikings fan better get on the fan feedback at Vikings .com and light up the emails to get rid of those purple pants unless they have a white sock to go with it. One of the worst trends in the NFL is teams wearing the same color socks as pants. Look like a bunch of dudes in leotards

undisputed Vike you must be clueless when it comes yo uni's the white sock would have a purple and yellow stripe similar to the Chiefs. That it what makes the Chiefs red pants work so well if they had just a red sock with it ,it would suck. Redskins maroon pants looks great with the white striped sock when they wore a maroon sock with it for a couple of games it looked like shit. Same reason why the cards have'nt worn their red pants because the fans said it looked stupid with a red sock.

It may seem that way because for one...I can't understand you, Speak english, use paragraphs, another thing you didn't say a "Stripe" like the chiefs...You just said all white sock.

anytime there is a change you get polarized responses, either love it or hate it. Usually the younger the fan the more likely to accept change. Im still gonna be a fan of the team and who knows, sometimes it can be a positive thing, sometimes not. Didnt work for the Cardinals, but it did for the Broncos and i remember a HUGE uproar in Denver when they got rid of the orange jerseys.

Well, i said they're decent- but I still like the old home unis better. I think someone posted that the new unis are top 5 in the NFL- I would contest that, I dont even know if I'd put them in the top 1/2.

hes right honestly, i like the change man, its really nice seeing this, its like were starting a new era, without moss, culpepper, and tice. Plus the conspiracy after jersey changes.. u never knowww


like i said, i wish we had more of a yellow alternate jersey, that would be cool

V-Unit
04-28-2006, 12:55 AM
The only way yellow is used on the entire uniform is as an outline, so I doubt they will mix up the whole color scheme to make a yellow alterante. It would be interesting to see how yellow pants look but I doubt we will see anything like that either.

'm still back and forth on the location of the reebok logo in such a prime spot. Maybe the horny "MV" logo would look good on the shoulders.

Same thing for the Buc's.. They had the ugliest uni's ever known to man. They changed, and now they are sweet. Good luck seems to follow a team after changing their uni's to. Tampa and Denver both won the SB a few years after changing. We will see what happens with the Card's, and the Vikes.

The new jerseys and pants are terrible. I say again terrible.

Just a few quick responces to earlier posts.

For those who say "get over it," "there's no point in discussing it," or "our opinions don't matter."

This is a fan site where people come to share their opinions, like it or not. We don't have to get over it, we discuss to get it off our chests, and our opinions matter to those who wish to listen.

For those who say "accept it, there's nothing we can do about it."

I do not and will not accept it, I will not be a follower, I will not let them think they made a good change, and I will continue to voice my displeasure at the new uniforms. It probably won't do any good and they probably won't change them but I'm still going to let everyone know that there is one person who doesn't like them. It's my right as a fan.

I'm not defensive, just sharing my opinion, and believe me I won't buy one.

Just for the record though, I have no problems with anyone who does like the "new look." If you like it, great, good for you. Buy one, buy three, wear them with pride and show everyone what it means to be a Vikings fan. At the end of the day that's what we have in common and that's why we come here.

Not as bad as I thought. Hey, I was a heavy critic before, but the look is a lot better when you see it on the players themselves (not as blue either--so that helps). I'm still not completely behind the jersey, and I also thought there should have been some fan input on the final design (like a poll to select the best jersey out of 3 or 4 designs). As long as they win a Super Bowl this year, I could give a $hit what they wear doing it!!!

The best thing about these photos is that Kleiny is a beast. He looks like the biggest guy on stage.

Purple must be very slimming on Phat Pat!

I actually prefer the white on purple. The shot of Winfield wearing that combo looks pretty good.
