Bengals introduce new uniforms.: Why is the trend in the NFL lately to make ugly uniforms with as many variations as possible?

The helmets seem to be staying the same. There was nothing wrong with the old uniforms though, I liked them. The black jerseys with white pants look good, and with black pants they look better than most of the monochrome ugliness I've seen, but still not great. White with white is fine, white with black pants and orange helmet sucks, and GOOD LORD what were they thinking with the orange shirts with black pants? have they not learned anything from the Jaguars? You don't do that! Why exactly do they need 5 combinations? Why do people actually like this? Popular opinion among people with no taste (like my roommate) is that the orange jerseys are "hot", or "tight". And while we're on a uniform kick, NHL Uniform History

I kind of like them. Of course I'm a big fan of arena football league style unis.

the orange tops remind me of the miami hurricane uniforms, maybe the bengals want some college cred.

Why exactly do they need 5 combinations? to boosts sales.

This is something I've wanted to say to TMQ for a while but now I'll just say it to jerseygirl: Orange and BLACK. When they showed them early yesterday using photoshop they looked really bad but looked much better when modeled by the Bengals players (how funny is it to see big Willie Anderson strut his stuff on a catwalk?).

Hey, you're right. But the only two pictures I had happened to click on... looked brown.

bernreuther, that link is great. Thanks, man. I'd pay top dollar for one of those 1925 Bruins sweaters. They're uglier than the Bengals uniforms.

i like the orange and black. hell, i even like orange and brown. but i'm probably a bit biased cause those are my alma mater's colors.

I love the bengals. Unfortunately, I hate those damn orange uniforms, they look too much like the Browns (our bitter rivals). The white jerseys are ok as long as they keep white pants with it.
