just got this link sent to me from a e-mail. He not some big insider or anything so take it for what it is worth but it would seem to fit with the blurred images on the sign. If this should go under the Jersey thread I apologize and please move it.

Oooooh. Very nice. Very good find. It is consistant both with the blurred pics and the "leaked" designs. i want to see one from the side with the stripe.

Awesome!

They are fake. The numbers are not rounded like the one's on the billboard ala bronco's jerseys. Plus, they wouldn't match the pants from the vikings.com slip up before they blacked them out.

Those are cool! They're kind of plain...but I think with the whole uniform they'll look pretty sweet.

Yeah they would. If you look at the pants, the purple stripe turns to a light purple/white just below the hip where the norseman logo is.

Plus, the numbers on the bilboard could easily be rounded because of the blur. Personally, I think these may be the real thing.

I also have decided that the aways are FREAKING COOL! I am definately getting an away jersey for the first time is over a decade.

With the official unveiling tomorrow, I thought that there might be a "sneak peek" online somewhere today. If this is what they're going to look like, they're not bad. They could of been alot worse.

they better not be changing the helmets!!!!

~ I think the helmets will stay the way they are. They might make a slight change in the curve of the horn. Someone on here had a pic of that

Take a closer look at the pictures...all the wrinkles are the same! But maybe that is a standard practice? I have no idea.

Here's Pro Football Talk take on the jerseys that are suppose to be the new ones.

NEW VIKINGS JERSEYS ARE UGLY

A reader has sent to us various images of the new Vikings jerseys, which are scheduled to be unveiled on Thursday afternoon. Here's a look-see at the shirts to be worn by quarterback Brad Johnson.
http://www.profootballtalk.com/VikingsHome.jpg http://www.profootballtalk.com/VikingsAway.jpg

It appears that the organization has ditched the profile of Hulk Hogan in a horn hat from the sleeves, relegating the Hulkster to the back of the jersey, just under the collar.

We think the new shirts are ugly. The yellow collar on the home jersey stands out too much, and the old yellow and purple shoulder stripes on the away shirts (a la LSU and UCLA) should have been retained.

Another new feature for the Vikings this year will be purple pants. Also, many observers expect the helmet logo to incorporate the more three-dimensional horn that currently appears on the front page of the Vikings' web site.

Look at Birk's right hip (the one facing us). Right about the same level as the Reebok logo, the stripe turns from purple to either a light purple or a white outlined by yellow. You can also see the norseman there. This would match up perfectly with these jerseys. On the away pants I assume the stripe would be none existant or start out white and change to purple.

Like I said guys take it for what it is worth. Like others have said I will believe them when I see them. It does match what we can see in the blurred bilbords so it may have some solid legitit. And I am definatly not going the route of some secret insider told me. But I guess only time will tell. Personally I like them but they will be hard to get used to if it is the real thing.

Too bad Pro Football Talk holds no merit with me, and that's only their opinion.

Personally, I like those. Could be better, but could be HELLA worse. Either way, I'll be at MoA for the reveiling of the new ones.. =D

04-27-2006, 12:48 AM
I changed my mind...these are legit.

*edit* I think the identical wrinkles are common practice.

If you really want to find out, go to: http://www.vikingmerchandise.com/vikings/files/
This is the Vikings official store.

It's sorta tricky to find 'em, just look for the pictures that were posted today...

Surprising that they don't protect their image folders...

No... it's the real deal. They have them for sale on Vikings merchandise if you look like VIeksFan has said.

VikesfaninWis
04-27-2006, 12:54 AM
If those are the real deal, then I am all for it.. I like the Viking logo on the back, and the Vikings spelled out in the front of the jersey. I am kinda hesitant on this though for the simple fact that I doubt that the Vikes or Reebox would ever leak what they look like before being unvailed. It would be cool, but right now I have to say that it won't be the real jerseys.

I'd like the stripes better if that gold trim went all the way around, instead of ending at the tip in back.

Overall, it's a good look.

VikesFan4Life
04-27-2006, 01:03 AM
I don't understand the KoRo deal either, but these are directly from the Vikings Merchandise site.

If Koren did indeed change his number back to #81, it's news to me. Maybe Singer or Prophet can shed some light on this?

Slade
04-27-2006, 01:05 AM
Maybe KRob changed back? Wasn't he # 81 in Seattle? Or #82?

04-27-2006, 01:06 AM
Those are looking more blue-ish purple than ever. Unfortunately, they have really gone away from the "royal purple" of the old Vikings. :cwm10: http://www.sports-photos.com/catalog/images/Alan%20Page%20color.tif.jpg

Could have been worse though!

VikesFan4Life
04-27-2006, 01:09 AM
I've always been of the belief that the shade of purple has remained relatively similar on the jerseys, it's just that the material that they make the jerseys out of now absorbs the dye differently, and it makes the color look "bluish" on TV and on the web.

I never thought any of my jerseys looked blue in real life.

These pants are tight.. I like them alot. I care about everyone's opinion, but I really think that the white pants with the purple jersey's, and the purple pants with white jersey's are going to look awesome.. I wasn't for the all purple, but purple pants with white jersey's is going to look slick.

Don't like the home jerseys. The yellow around the collar is too yellow. The road uni's are sweet though.

VikesFan4Life
04-27-2006, 01:25 AM
I think the yellow collar is too busy, change it back to purple. But overall I like the change.

It probably looks better over pads, and along with the helmet and pants and all.

Mr. Purple
04-27-2006, 01:26 AM
Ok I look at it like this, THose are nice jerseys, imagine the stripe on the side what it looks like. Nice.

Secondly if they are fake, I think thier better then our current especially the aways. The away UNI on there looks sweet.


Third, their not taking the horn of the helmet, the horn on the helmet and jersey looks good.

I was expecting more, those are just alright. The sad part is that it could be so easy to improve them.

First of all, make the gold trim go all the way around the white stripe. Secondly, put something, anything on the shoulder other than that dumb reebok logo. How hard is it to move the viking from above the name and put it on each shoulder instead. Or how about moving the logo up from the pants to put on the shoulder pads. I like the logo on the pants, but the jerseys needs more decoration. Besides, for the pants you could always put an "M" on the right hip and a "V" on the left hip. Finally, the yellow collar has got to go! The only reason it is yellow is probably because the designers did not feel there was enough of the color on the jersey overall. They should have fixed that problem by bordering the white stripe with a bolder yellow one.

I was also hoping that they would use a more golden yellow. Now I'm just hoping these are fakes. I'm not saying they are bad, but they could be so much better.

Totally agree with you there. And not having the "Norseman" on the shoulder is a bad move. That was one of the best design moves they had made since the last uniform change.

The norsemen on the sleeve isnt really all that big of a deal. They threw it on there becuz it was too bare with out it.I like the yellow collar becuz thier is already enough white and purple, and the yellow is a signifcant color. When I think of the Vikings, I think of the helmet and the horns. For years I've haited our away jerseys and away pants. Finally we have a good away jersey with PURPLE pants. It'll look a hell of a lot better IMO.They arnt as drastic as I kinda hoped they be, but at the same time they eased us into and didnt over crowd them or anything. I like them alot and I'm deff get one. I know some of the old timers might have trouble adjusting to them...but I think they'll grow on ya...and also jersies look better on the players then they do just lied out flat and replica like those.

I feel like you barely read my post. We somewhat agree on both issues. The sleeve is way too bare, thats why it needs something like the logo to keep it from being such a bore.

The jersey does need more yellow, just not on the collar, that is the worst place they could have put it.

04-27-2006, 02:35 AM
those jerseys look like SHIT. they are no more interesting than park league jerseys. to get rid of the norseman is a travesty, equalled only by the kindergarden design. i will buy one, but i will spend more money on the old(yesterday) ones. what a waste of anticipation. suck,suck,suck

Totally agree with you there. And not having the "Norseman" on the shoulder is a bad move. That was one of the best design moves they had made since the last uniform change.

The norsemen on the sleeve isnt really all that big of a deal. They threw it on there becuz it was too bare with out it.I like the yellow collar becuz thier is already enough white and purple, and the yellow is a signifcant color. When I think of the Vikings, I think of the helmet and the horns. For years I've haited our away jerseys and away pants. Finally we have a good away jersey with PURPLE pants. It'll look a hell of a lot better IMO.They arnt as drastic as I kinda hoped they be, but at the same time they eased us into and didnt over crowd them or anything. I like them alot and I'm deff get one. I know some of the old timers might have trouble adjusting to them...but I think they'll grow on ya...and also jersies look better on the players then they do just lied out flat and replica like those.

sorry, just left the tavern. i was going to say, how many years? 5. the norseman IS VIKING. that may not make much sense if you are polish, but if you are from the north, the norseman represents strength and pride.

At second glance, I'd like it if they kept the gold outline around the player's name on the back, like the numbers have. The plain white just doesn't jive with me.

Hopefully the "actual" jerseys still have that outline.

(And frankly at this point, idiots can also be a word used to describe the design team that decided on those as the final uniforms. Just my opinion of course. They could have been worse. But c'mon. I just think that the least they could have done as come up with 2 or 3 designs and then solicited some fan responses/voting ... ala Tennessee when the fans got to choose their nickname and voted on the "Titans")

Thank you hope! If you take a look at the old jersies, they look ...old. And while they may have history in them, we still never won a bowl. Now with this new era, new coach, new owner, why not a new jersey? The old ones where nice, but I think that they went the right way with these. Wait till you see them on the players.

What they need to do is get the uniforms back to a true purple color. It may be the pics, but I have seen to many looking more like blue than purple.

One thing to remember about the sleeve is that the players jerseys will have the elastic in them, and with the stripe where it is at on the new jerseys it would be tough put the elastic in them and still have the norseman on there too. The new jerseys will take some getting used to but IMO they'll be OK.

BluePride it is! They should have just done some update to the old jerseys of the '70s (the deep dark purple). I would have liked it like it was back then, dark purple with white numbers (no gold trim). It just sux, do you see the Packers or Bears doing their jerseys up like that? This isn't about "keepin' up with the times", it's about class. Isn't that what this organization was stressing with the new ownership? Just put some neon lights on the jerseys why you're at it!

PACKERS AND BEARS...ha! Who wants to be like the Packers or Bears? Not me...I hate the Packers and Bears...

I don't understand what all the fuss is all about...things change with time, ALL things...

The ownership can do whatever they want to the jerseys, and I will accept it...I watch the Vikings and spend maybe 500-1000 bucks on em' a year, Zygi and his crew dropped 600million...I think that they have the say for a dang good reason...if you would've dropped millions on the team you could've stopped this...but you didnt, and theres no reason to get all worked up about something that you can't change.

Just be happy

The purple is more of a deep purple, blueish purple, whatever....the old purple was nice, but I don't really care if it changes a little...whatever. As long as they win games I could give a F*$% what they wear!

So boo hoo, you don't like it, don't buy a jersey.

Change happens, you can either make the best of it, or get worked up over nothing, something that doesn't really matter anyways, something that is totally and utterly out of your control...

Sorry, but I would like to see a poll among the group here to see just how many of us actually prefer the new jersey (as pictured here) to the old.

Hey, I'll embrace the change (as I have no other choice now).
As a fan of Viking football for over 35 years now, it would have been nice if they might have considered other options though; namely a final vote by fans for the best of 2 or 3 design options that they came up with. I mean if Zygi and company really had a genuine interest in involving the Viking fans and fostering more community support for their "business venture" here, that would have been a great idea, yes?

I'm with ya on this F44! I've seen subtle changes over the last 40+ years of cheering for the team, but leaving us fans out of the loop on this decision clearly shows the lack of ingenuity on Zygi's part to think "BIG"! :roll: Sure am glad I have some older jersey's that should last another decade or more cause these new ones SUCK THE WAZOO!

I'm not getting worked up over opinions...I just think its funny how people portray sports as fantasy imagery...they act like they really have a say in things and that somehow "voicing their opinion" will change things....its funny really, just remind you its out of your control, wasting your breath saying the same thing over and over again every time a new thread on the Vikes new uni's is made....

The fact is, many of you supported the old jerseys and you had your mind made up before you saw the new ones...you were going to hate them no matter what unless they looked almost exactly like the old ones, maybe a little different color, or a different stripe....

As for you calling on every other Viking fan who hates the new design to not buy a jersey, isn't that a given? You usually don't buy clothes that you think look ugly...

The fans have dropped millions, and they will continue to drop millions, and the Vikings know that...they know that the fan base is strong and that changing the jerseys to make them look like other new jerseys in the NFL won't hurt much...maybe a few old-timer's sense of belonging, or pride in the past...but it is inevitable...every team will have jerseys like this someday, and we're just getting in line...

Look who else has sold out for the "new-style" unis:

Rams
Titans (Oilers)
Broncos
Bengals
Cardinals
Seahawks
Patriots
Bills
Falcons
Eagles
Ravens
Jaguars
Panthers
Texans

Thats like half the league...give it 10 years, everybody will have jerseys like these and some team's will be "pushing the envelope" even more....its sports business...new jerseys sell two-fold....the new ones sell for big bucks and the old ones sell as throwbacks for big bucks....

After all the problems the Vikings have had, their marketing department had to do something drastic like this to try and bring attention back to the team and get it off the off the field stuff. A team's image is very important, much more important in making money than history is....cuz the kids buying up all these jerseys weren't around to witness history...heck, half of the members on this site don't remember Randall McDaniel or Cris Carter!

If these are the legit jerseys then I can live with them - they could have been a lot worse !
They may actually look a lot better when you see them matched up with the pants as well so that you can see the full effect. As someone said the purple may look a lot more 'purple' in real life as opposed to seeing a pic online or TV where the colour does seem to change a little.
Can't wait to see the final uneveiling so that we know for sure what has been picked out !

Yeah, give it 10 more years and we'll see Miller Lite, Home Depot, and Always With Wings logos on the jerseys too! You must like NASCAR, 'cause these jerseys are definitely heading that way. Push the envelope!

Sure change up the jerseys. I think we all can agree we were excited for a new look . . . just don't f#ck up the final product! That's simple marketing. That's smart business!

Good post and hits the mark. Look at this - how long since the last jersey change ? a few years and I believe the NFL rules allow a minimum of five years between changes, so the Vikes haven't exactly been changing every time that the opportunity was available.
In this day and age sports apparel is BIG business and the teams and fans know that their teams will change unis as time goes on. Look at this way - all the jerseys you currently own will at 6:00pm tonight instantly become throwbacks , so how cheap was that for you !

Try living in the UK where the soccer jerseys here change every two years and imagine trying to keep up with that. Maybe because I'm used to seeing jerseys here change so often and get tweaked in different way, then I'm not as paranoid about the changes as some are at present. Give it a few weeks and this will all have blown over and people will then concentrate on the important things like the draft, TC etc.

LAVike

Yeah. Where was the fan input on these jerseys BEFORE the unveiling, anyway? I bet they privately "focus grouped" the jersey designs (focus groups consisting of VPs and other execs with no aesthetic sense). Lame! They should have come up with three designs, and then had the fans vote for the winning one. That would have been smart.


They at least could have been a trend-setter . . . instead of a follower.

I like the idea of having new jerseys. I think it is an ok design. I'm angry because they could have made them look a whole lot cooler.

1. They are not original at all. (Patriots, Broncos, Chargers)
2. They are blue.
3. They don't have enough yellow.
4. They are somehow more bland than our current uni's. (No logo on the shoulders, name is not outlined, stripe is not fully outlined)

These are basic improvements to the design. The basic design is good, but not flashy. It just makes ou say, "oh another new jersey design." While I like it, I am not jumping to buy it.

I really don't think that these are the jerseyz that will be released. The purple was supposed to be getting darker, these ones are a completely different color. And the shoulder stripe doesn't even look like a horn in the back, it just tapers down under the armpit. Its always fun to have an early look, but I think that someone has produced a fake to make a few bucks.

04-27-2006, 11:49 AM
If this design turns out to be the real deal, I espeicaly like the back of the jerseys. The back because this is going to be the side most defenders see when our asses are headed into the end zone.......LOL

It's not those! Those were someone's guesses. The new jerseys will look like this. I got it from the MV Locker Room store site (MOA) files myself.

Stop complaining people, just lilve with it. every team goes through this and most fans dont like it, but what can they do..nothing. I think the jerseys are ok, it could of been alot worse, if you see how other teams have dramatically change there jerseys in a way that will make u sick, then you wouldnt say anything... btw if the jerseys are dark blusish color, then that means the helmet is to.. becuase you cant have two different colors that dont match... and i have seen the new helmet its dark purple, so dont give up hope...

Being the doubter I am, I started at Vikings.com & worked my way thru the store & then found the files myself.

I posted the link to all the files, but within a half hour the link no longer worked & the files were taken off, I assume because they realized someone found them.

The only other two senarios I can think of are;

1. They are an alternative jersey style like many stores sell. Howevere, these have the Reebok logo.

2. Someone cleverly added the jpegs to their file database. But I highly doubt it, there were several jpegs in that file of all the other merchandise & older style jerseys that the store sells.

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 damn stoked for these new jerseys.

I'll save my final opinion on them until I see the entire uniform over pads and with the helmet.

Nodak brings up a good point about the color too. My "throwback" Kleinsasser is as purple as purple can be in real life. It's just that TV and photos and stuff jack with the color. Always has, ever since they changed the fabric style on the unis.

Are you kidding? Come on, this isn't like New Coke. If you and the 10% or so of fans who don't like the jerseys don't buy them (the 10% is my estimate, not anything scientific), it will not be a large enough drop in retail to spur a change.

Given the nature of some of the posts, I think many of the people complaining now would have complained about anything that wasn't an exact replica of the 1970's jersey.

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.

Nice post with the new jerseys on top of the billboard. It goes to show that the color in the leaked pics is probably not as purple as the actual purple. Wasn't there rumors going around before about them [b]darkening[/i] the shade or purple, not lightening it? Of corse, then people were complaining that it would be too dark, like the Ravens.

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.

I am a fan of the purple jerseys too...I swear to god I am only going to wear throwback jerseys from now on

You would think a picture of Hutchinson's Jersey or Williamson's new number 82 would be shown on that link. Maybe they are fakes.

If they aren't fakes then the white one looks a lot better

:sad: Is it the color that is throwing you off DC? If so, I think you should wait until the unveiling tonight before making any life long commitments. I truely think they will be a dark purple in person. They only look blueish because of the fabric (similar to what happens to the current jerseys on TV).

Actually, I do think they will be darker. Maybe not quite Raven dark, but darker than we had before. Of course, your guess is as good as mine, and I have been wrong before (just ask my wife :wink:).

Whatever way the color plays out, I don't think it will be as blue as it appears in these pictures.

Are you kidding? Come on, this isn't like New Coke. If you and the 10% or so of fans who don't like the jerseys don't buy them (the 10% is my estimate, not anything scientific), it will not be a large enough drop in retail to spur a change.

Given the nature of some of the posts, I think many of the people complaining now would have complained about anything that wasn't an exact replica of the 1970's jersey.

HOw many people actually buy jerseys anyways?

The look good to me. Some of you would change teams if we had the 70s jerseys back.

The purple always looks different in pictures.

I really liked the triple stripe over the shoulder on the old away uni's, and liked the idea of of that stripe opposite on the purple jersey.

I still like the new ones though, and I have to be careful considering who's jersey to buy next. I might just go all out and get a custom jersey, but I'm not thrilled about the price tag. Not sure whether to go white or purple though.

I'm anxious to see what the purple pants will look like. I hope the helmet is the same, I liked the fact that we were one of the only teams without a stripe, and you just can't take the horn away. It wouldn't be natural.

Also, I don't care what anyone says, I want to see them wear black jerseys just once. The black ones that I've seen so far, were awesome.

***UPDATE***

God I am going to sound like one of those people I hate but here it goes.
I have confirmed that these are the "Official" uniforms that will be revealed this evening. I know I cannot say how I know but I do have people that I work with people who are connected with Winter Park. The Vikings are PISSED that the uniforms have been leaked. That is why KFAN is so hush, hush, about the uniforms and why all postings have been removed from Rube Chat. They were told to by the Vikings. Again I hate thos epeopel that say i have this Inside Information BS adn I know that I sound just like one now. I totally understand if you do not belive me, but I felt as a fellow die hard Vikes fan to pass this info along.

Whether or not these are the new jerseys, I do agree that they look more "blue" on my screen rather than the purple I have known and loved all of these years.

They almost look like NFC Pro Bowl jerseys.

Well, if they are the real deal, I'm a Minnesota Viking fan first and foremost so I guess I'll just have to get to like 'em. :smile:

I think you guys are freking out waaay too much about the colors on your screen. I am a graphic/exhibit designer so I deal with colors all the time. I can create something how I want it to look, send it to a sales person down the hall and on his screen it will look totally different.

For example, take a look at this Page. (http://www.footballfanatics.com/fanstore.taf?cmd=prodsearch&gid=17&sgid=1402&_UserReference=C0A86FD746B888066310CDB9E4D34450EAA2)

Those are the old jersey's and they all seem to have different purples. The people who took the pictures initially, may not have color corrected them, or their camera just interprets the colors differently than other cameras.

Anyway....it seems these are them....and I like! Subtle changes, but enough to where its a new look.

I have just seen the kit for the first time and to be honest I'm still a bit undecided on whether I like it or not. Its the big white stripe down the side which is kinda putting me off it, as for the colour issue it must be more purple than the pictures are showing.......right?
I am happy that the pants have remained white and the horn remains on the helmet, looking the same as the new one on the official site.

The other thing is being a soccer fan where teams change their kits at least every 2 years (sometimes sooner) the impression you get from seeing static pictures sometimes give a false impression. Untill you see it in the flesh, or in a shop, it is hard to judge how good it looks. Ahh well not long to go now... :smile:

I am satisfied. I love all my old jerseys and the look to them all. Glad to have a new addition to the family!!

If anyone has a close-up of the new helmets (with redesigned horn) I'd like to see it. The change appears to be subtle, but can't really tell.

BAH!

Actually, I'm not going to be able to make it.. Thanks to a certain towing company and the State (long story).

Though it's nice that I got to see what they look like.. I like them.. Especially with the purple pants on the away uniforms. Hopefully they'll keep 'em purple for the away games though.

DAMN YOU PLATINUM TOWING!!!!
