Will it be the classic look? White jerseys, burgundy pants and white socks?
Will it be the reverse of that? Burgundy jerseys with white pants and burgundy socks?
Or something else, like burgundy jerseys with GOLD pants?
Today on Sports Talk 980 with Kevin Sheehen the topic came up again, and Dan Steinberg transcribed.
“You took it as a hint, you understood it a certain way,” Allen said with good humor. “I said we’re very proud of our team colors of burgundy and gold, and we will be wearing our Redskins uniforms. You took that to mean something, and then I got 400 e-mails myself on that. We’re gonna discuss our uniforms with our alumni later, after the preseason, and we’ll see what we wear. We will be wearing our team colors, I promise you. Our jerseys have burgundy and gold, they’re special colors, [and] we’ll see what happens.”
Allen said the Redskins would not have an alternate uniform this season. He declined to say whether the team would wear dark or white colors at home. He said the team’s helmets would stay the same. And he said he liked the fact that so many people were fascinated by this issue.
“It’s wonderful, and as we spend more and more time with the alumni, believe me, they have some specific ideas of concepts we should do,” Allen said. “And we really are gonna listen to our alumni quite a bit this year.”
My personal prediction? If it is up to the alumni, we may still see a mix at home, but the majority will favor the Classic Look, since those were the uniforms worn in the Super Bowl years.
I also think it is a classy move of Allen allowing the alumni to have input on what this is.
