    Hi Everyone,

    Great win yesterday, I am really impressed with the win as im sure you all are.

    Anyways, This is a serious inquiry and I really want everyones honest opinion...

    Do people like the throwback jerseys alot better than the flying elvis?
    I really prefer them and its not just because its a different look, I have never liked the blue and white too much...

    Almost everybody I talk to likes the jerseys

    Anyways, If some type of petition were set up - what do you think the chances are, if any, that kraft/ the patriots would consider switching back??

    I understand the ammount of money it would take to change logos all around patriot place ect... but wouldnt that money be made up in new jersey/ new logo in sales??

    so basically im asking for a few comments...

    1. is this possible?
    2. would you sign a petition?
    3. Am I crazy and the only one who likes these unis WAY better?
    4. How many people do you think would have to sign one..?

    Let me know what you think .. Obviously this situation is WAY bigger than just my opinion but I really wanted to know how everyone feels...

    Thanks!

    There's already a thread on this.
    NO on switching back.
    BURN the red jerseys.
    Don't waste your time with a petition.

    I LOVE the throwbacks, but I wouldn't want them to switch back. The old uniform is a symbol of where the franchise was, and it's history. The new uniform will be forever linked to this era and the 3 Super Bowls, which now and as time goes on, will be a much more beloved history of the franchise.

    I like them both a lot.

    One game a year in each wouldn't hurt in my opinion.

    I'd be all for going back to the red/white/blues.

    I've always hated the flying elvis logo. I think it's the worst logo in the league BY FAR. Cant stand it.

    I wouldnt even mind if we just changed the logo and kept our current uni's. The Flying Elvis is just silly looking.

    I don't think the team should make the throwbacks the permanent uniform, but it would cool if the team wore them like 4 games a year, like for half of the divisional games and then for the final home game.

    What he said.

    As a fan who goes way back with this team, when I see those red shirts and Pat Patriot, I think of 1974 starting out 6-1 and ending up 7-7, 1976 and roughing the passer, rolling to 11-5 in 1978 and having the first home playoff game at that pit down in Foxboro only to have Fairbanks and Sullivan screw it up, blowing two seasons in 1979 and 1980, specifically losing to a sh!t Doofins team on the Monday night John Lennon was shot and blowing the playoffs, a 2-14 season, Mosi fumbling in 1984 vs the Donkos when we were on the verge of winning the game, FINALLY getting past the Doofins and getting to the Super Bowl only to get blown out, Eason starting over Flutie and losing to the Donkos in the playoffs, Rod "I'm proud of my men, 1-15" Rust, Victor Kiam and being just God awful in the early 90's.

    When I see the new Uni's, I think of Dynasty, one of the best teams of all time, the team of the decade, three Super Bowl wins and winning season after winning season.

    End of story; go with the new uni's and sh!tcan the old one..........................

    I preferred the old colours, I have to say. Still, the majority prefer the blue and the association with success.

    Never understood red jerseys. Weren't our boys wearing blue fighting the "Red Coats" for our independence?

    Personally, I've never been a fan of the modern Patriots logo. But I do like the dominant blue (as oppose to the red which I dislike) in the jersey color scheme. Conversely, I've always liked the previous Patriots logo. I don't like the white background helmet but the logo ranks up there with the Celtics leprechaun or the Bruins letter B. I wish the current ownership would go back to the old Patriots logo, it's better. I believe the modern Patriots logo has more to do with marketability and sales than anything.

    I like the red. You dont see too much of it in the league so it really stands out. Too much blue. But I do like the flying elvis.

    I don't like the white background helmet but I can live with it. I mean the Chargers changed from a blue background helmet to a white one and it works. I like how their white background helmet complement the dominant blue in their color scheme of their updated uniforms.

    What's interesting, during yesterday's game, a reporter asked Jonathan Kraft about the throwback uniforms. His response was a curious one. He'd said that he and family are fans of the throwback uniforms but they didn't purchase the franchise until a year after the logo and uniforms were changed.

    So if it was the previous ownership's idea to make the change. Then why don't the current ownership take this opportunity to revert back to tradition. But I reckon too many losing seasons are associated with the old look Patriots. And... It's about making money.

    As it stands right now, Kraft is making a killing on selling two forms of Jerseys.

    By going back to the Red, they wouldn't have much of a throwback to sell, as the Flying Elvis isn't nosalgic enough to induce sales.

    The entire point of 4 throw back games a year by every team is nothing but driving sales.

    It's another gimmick by the NFL to spur on sales... unfortunately, I think the NFL is heading for a collapse like the financial markets as they are pushing profit faster than it should naturally grow... which is going to lead to a big bust someday.

    Else we will be looking at 8 throw back games a year, and the invention of a new Jersey in an attempt to keep up with sales, etc... We are starring at a marketing driven league now, so the ridiculousness of the advertising and selling out will only become more and more apparent.

    Don't forget Clive Rush , the new coach, being introduced by Billy Sullivan, getting zapped by the microphone at the press conference. I'll never forget the look on Sullivan's face. The curse of Pat Patriot strikes again.
    I wear my old school stuff to mow the lawn, work on the car, wipe out the litter box etc.

    Pat Patriot = Curse

    Flying Elvis = 3 Trophies

    Agree. Like the arrogant grin on Pat Patriot logo. But memories of 7 yards rushing against the Bears in that Super Bowl--give me the blue and silver any day.

    I love the throwbacks which is the uniform I was attracted to to get me as a Pats fan in the 70s

    I do like the current style as well but what some here fail to mention is that the BEST and coolest looking jerseys were in the Bledsoe era in the mid 90s where Flying Elvis logo was put on the shoulders and the numbers on the unis were tri colored and numbers were also on the lower part of the sleeves...those were the coolest and best overall to this day IMO

    old unis are cool once or twice a year, any more than that and I start having flashbacks to Bob Lobel's Sunday Night show in 1990 and Rod Rust
