Post Lions in Black
Millen announced from the GM meeting in Hawaii that the Lions will wear black jerseys for 2 home games next year. I will wait to see the jersey before I make up my mind on this. I am usually for traditional uniforms. I enjoy my Honolulu Blue and Silver, but I do think the Lions emblem needs an update. Well what you guys think of the black?

I can't remember where I saw it, but I remember seeing a "prototype" of what the jersey would look like. It was a really good version that someone photoshopped up. I was impressed by their work, but not so much by the jersey. Millen says the black jerseys make him feel "a bit at home." Who cares Millen? Nobody cares about your days with the Raiders! We're the Lions and changing jerseys won't change that. I just don't see the point in wearing black, the jerseys just don't say "Lions." Then agian, maybe if we're wearing black jerseys, we won't find unique ways to lose games like the Lions of recent.

I read the the jersey will be black with the numbers in blue with either a silver or white outline. Hmmmm my mental image of that is not very good. I think if they are gonna go black, black with white lettering and blue outlines would look better. but then again my wife always says I cant match a premade outfit anyway :shock:

I hope its not to expansion teamish, or like an arena football type thing. Here's an exabple of a really bad black jersey.

IMO you can't go wrong with black. Plus they will probably make some big jack of it.

I usually like their throwback jerseys a lot as well.

I made my Madden team use these jerseys. I'm sure it will be somewhat different, but it didn't look that bad. :arrow:

News
Lions officials announced Wednesday that the team will wear black jerseys for two home games this season. "I just think it looks great," team president Matt Millen told the Detroit Free Press. "You're allowed to have that jersey. We've got the blue-and-silver and white, and we added just that little piping of black. I think it looks great."

Millen is suddenly a fashion expert? This is the same guy who wears tennis shoes with suits and prefers to wear bib overalls when he's not in the office.

I seem to be the only one who likes our logo. I hope they don't change it to something thats looks like the jags or pathers. I like the old school look.

I like to old school logo. I don't think I'd like the black jerseys though, but that's just personal preference and style.

I agree the log is fine. It would be cool to see a plain helmet though every once in a while.

During Thanksgiving week, the logo for the link on NFL.com is a really old school logo, and looks great. I wouldn't mind seeing that one on helmets once and a while.

Are you talking about the really really old logo, like the late 50's logo with the vertical stripes or just the old school lion?
