    Bucs weren't part of the original AFL teams.

    so you weren't in love with them like the rest of this board last week?

    it's definitely a hate thing on my end.

    The Bills game will be the last game in our retro's.

    It will probably be our white uni's.

    Not at all

    The red looked decent but I love the Blue.

    I think old jersey styles were abandoned for a reason and I don't miss them.

    Good point.

    The red "throw back" uniforms they have been wearing this year are strange to me. They are different from the red uniforms that the team wore in the 1980's. The stripes and colors were similar yet different.

    Didn't the British wear red?

    And pardon me for saying this, but I'm not real excited about the prospect of reliving the whole "red jersey" era.

    I think the old uniforms look like uniforms.

    The new ones look like something that came out of a corporate design meeting.

    I, for one, don't attribute winning/losing with a particular uniform style. What looks good has nothing to do with the relative success wearing different colors.

    It has EVERYTHING to do with the players wearing them.

    That's because all the AFL teams got to choose a year to throw back to, as long as it was during the AFL era. The Patriots chose the 1963 season (though the helmet is the version used from the 1980s, apparently because the team thought it was more 'fan friendly' or more appealing or something like that).

    Tampa Bay is the "home" team, so I would assume they'll be wearing their red uniforms.

    Most of the stadium are going to be Pats fans. Including me.

    Why would you want to mock your supporters? The Revolutionary War was a long, long time ago, man. :)

    Everytime i see that logo i have a flashback to a time I was a kid in january 1986... not good.

    I have no problem never seeing those uniforms again in my life.

    It was back in the 1980's when cousins Kevin and Marshall fought as kids around the Thanksgiving table?

    The original Patriots fought and beat the British running them out of NE.

    Wearing those would be in poor taste.

    BTW, NE Pats fans lead the NFL in throwback merchandise sales. Heard it on the radio.

    No Jersey Selected

    Technically, yes. However, there were some American units in red coats and some British units in blue. It's all very much a place/time/unit thing as to who wore what and when. :)

    Seriously.

    You sure it won't be against the Dolphins? I thought I read they were one of the "legacy" games. (Which doesn't make much sense since they weren't one of the original 8.)

    I agree with you.

    The Pats and Bills already played a game against each other wearing their throwbacks.

    I believe the Pats throwback games are only once against a particular original AFC team during the schedule.

    Give me a break. Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783. I think we can safely say folks won't be offended if the Pats were to wear their throwbacks that were first worn in 1960.

    Yes, but the oppressive nature of the British Empire still existed well into the 20th Century.
    Let the Bucs wear the Red Coats...we won't fire until "we see the whites of their eyes."

    Pirates like Billy The Kid and Blackbeard were very disruptive to the British Empire's trade activities with the southen colonies and the carribean islands as well.

    With that said, is the old Bucs helmet with the pirate w/ he knife in his mouth more or less offensive then the skull on the flag?

    This disussion is silly and fun at the same time!

    Neither offended me as much as the play of either of those teams on the field.

    Agree. I think the problem is that too many of you are looking at this from an American perspective. Most people in the UK will not understand the significance of New England Patriots. Very few will know anything about the War of Independence and no one will care. They could turn up as the "Boston Tea Party Rebels" and the point would be completely lost on most of us.

    Really? They don't include this in history classes at school? Granted, not England's finest hour, but still an important event in shaping the modern world.
