    Throwbacks

    What is the main reason that this seems to becoming a more often event?

    I would guess money, do they make that much more on Jersey sales?

    Re: Throwbacks

    The AFL 50th anniversary celebration has a lot to do with it this year. The original AFL teams will be wearing their AFL throwbacks appx 4 times each this season.

    The rest of the teams do it purely for the merchandising $$$.

    Re: Throwbacks

    doesn't the NFL require you to wear a jersey for an actual game to be able to officially license the merchandise, thus make money off of it? Or am I thinking of a different league?

    Yeah, these are hideous. Tough to determine which is worse though, these or Seattle's.

    Re: Throwbacks

    So a couple weeks ago, the Seahawks jerseys must have been throwbacks from the days of black and white tv?



    I was in Seattle the week before that game and stopped at the Team Shop in the mall to get a new cap and T-shirt, and the guy working there was actually pretty pumped about them. Personally I like the green but only as an accent color. The only thing that looks cool in this picture is the guy wearing the jersey.

    And yes I know the Seahawks are an NFC team and did not exist before color tv.
