    Since we are pretty solid on the road, we should think about ditching the blue uniforms this yr for our white uniforms.. ok at least for the bears game

    No way. It is an advantage for northern teams to have the dark jerseys and the southern teams to have the white Jerseys, at least on hot and cold days.

    Hot days = White because you sweat more and get tired faster in the darker ones. (Edit)

    It's only a slight advantage my papa taught me about when I was little, but it may determine game fatique... don't take chances.

    I'm sure BB thought of this, which is why we may wear Dark at home vs the bears... unless for some odd reason it is supposed to be 100 degres out, which I highly doubt.

    Yup...kinda like during the summer, you'd rather wear a white t-shirt than a black t-shirt. I think heat is supposed to bounce off light colors whereas dark colors absorb the heat. Something like that. You'll often see teams in warm climates (Dallas, Carolina, Miami, San Diego) wear white during home games during the day if the weather is hot. Northern teams rarely wear white at home.

    The thing about wearing white jerseys at home in other sports came as a result of laundry problems, because the home team could easily do laundry and the away team couldn't, so they'd wear darks. Whites supposedly create less of a cut-out, silhouetted figure and enhance the sensation of their wearer being bigger, aside from the obvious heat benefits.
