I dare to say it, but our uniforms have become stale, boring and out dated and they should be updated. I know right? I've uttered words equal to that of pushing grandma over in her rocking chair while wearing Chargers colors, but just consider it for a moment if you will. I am not saying change our uniforms, that would be ludicrous, I'm simply suggesting that time has come to update them. Who if not us should usher in a new era of sleek and modern uniforms? Have the Raiders not always been the trend setters? However, in this area we are being somewhat left behind. There have been a few teams around the league now that have updated their uniforms with a clean and modern approach. Some of which have gone quite well, while others, namely the Jaguars who have failed miserably.
It's a new day and a new season, there's a new regime, the prodigal son has returned and is now in charge. Soon we'll have our new stadium and we should continue the trend of change with an updated and fresh wardrobe. I've seen many of the new concept uniforms artists have thrown in and much of it is too over the top and a far cry away from anything that should ever be considered. Nevertheless, there are teams like the Dolphins for example, who have made subtle change while respecting the original unis with a new clean and sleek appeal. I don't think there's anything wrong with taking a look to see what might be available for our silver and black.
Speaking of silver and black, our silver looks more grey than it does silver doesn't it? I recently saw a guy on a really nice chopper with a chrome helmet with Raider patches on the side. It was slightly dusted so that the sun would not reflect too heavily and blind the eyes. It got my wheels spinning, what if... How would that look on our team perhaps with a black face mask? Ok everyone, I'm done. Feel free to let me have it.
