    So we are the laughing stock of the NFL before, during, and after the NSO.

  2. BuccsfanNJ Says:

    Joe, Any chance you think they make some changes to these? Seems like on Monday they were force feeding us story after story about how great these are, Yesterday only one story… today Nothing

    Seems the general over all concensus that the majority of the fans are not pleased with the changes…

    In your opinion do they try to appease the fans, or is this a done deal and what we see is what we get?

  3. BoJim Says:

    The unis r belong to us. Deal with it.

    Not for the 2014 season.

    Once upon a time Team Glazer was deadset against the team ever wearing creamsicle again. But after enough pleas from the fans, after a decade or so, they relented.

    Team Glazer listens to the fans, trust Joe. Just because they are reserved doesn’t mean they don’t listen.

    It is very simple, if the uniforms don’t sell, there will be changes.

    So when is Joe gonna change the font on this site to match up with the new Bucs font? Maybe change the red to match as well with orange highlights.

    It’s time for you to show your true colors, pun intended!

    One word: Never.

    They’ve got to change those numbers AND produce an orange alternate. Otherwise I’ll stick to my throwbacks, thanks.

  8. Patrick Says:

    The old uniforms will be back eventually. These uniforms aren’t going to sell.

    Im no uniform guru, but this has been depressing and stunted an otherwise good off season, The old uni reaked of great defense even if we sucked last few years, also not 1 player or coach has yet to endorse it, quite a few did with helmet

  10. BuccsfanNJ Says:

    Not to mention the story on the official website thats titled “Social Media Reacts to New Uniforms” and then when you read it, its all the tweets from celebrities and so forth that are in approval.

    Instead of actually reporting the pulse of the true Buccaneer fans they cherry picked all the supporting comments.

    Some polls I saw (Not excuslive to Bucs fans) showed an 80% disapproval rate.

    I’d be nice if the team actually came out and made an official comment like “We’ve recived mixed reviews about the new uniforms, we expected there to be some disapproval, but we cannot deny that the overall feedback is concerning. As an orginization the pride in which fans have for both our product on the field, and the uniform that represents our team is of the upmost importance. We hear what you are saying, we are listening, and we will be taking into consideration some of the feedback we have recieved. Although we are open to making the changes to create a more satisfying uniform, we are currently committed to these uniforms for the 2014 season. Please be paitent we will be sure to do our due dilligence, and produce a uniform that will restore your pride in our traditions and our football team”

  11. Snook Says:

    Yeah. Listen to the feedback from a bunch of whiners on facebook. That’s a great way to run a business.

    The new uniforms are great. People just like to whine about anything they can.

  12. PRBucFan Says:

    They will sell and they will stick.

    In the video they looked sick and in person/on the field they will look great.

    Until people see them on the field, no opinion to the Glazers will matter.

    If you think they will be swayed on this after all the time and money they have put into this design and it’s research by a fanbase that excels at whining especially when they have been bending over backwards to try and please us..

    Your bound to be disappointed.

  13. Jeff Says:

    PRBucFan you are absolutely right. Im gonna laugh so hard when sales go through the roof. The fact that it is getting so much attention just helps the cause. Our society is built on drama. lol That all being said yes you have to see the video, for it does them justice. It def is different but im sure people will warm up to them real fast. I think they are bad ass! Oh and I concur people have got to quit griping about the glazers like they have not done enough for you fans. They put all the money on the table to get the right coaches and players. Haing in there fans the tables will turn soon! Go BUCS!

  14. Mike Says:

    Of course the uniforms will sell.. Whether they suck or not. That’s all that will be available to the public. What’s going to be worse, rocking the new uniform or a Freeman or Blount jersey. I don’t like the change, but get used to em if keeping em is based solely on sales!..

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    “fanbase that excels at whining especially when they have been bending over backwards to try and please us..”

    PRBuc…the Glazers are you serious? Bending over backwards? Well maybe, maybe not, but they are extremely inept owners.

  16. Marlow Says:

    2 years spent on this uniform…. I hope or draft research doesn’t turn out this bad

  17. alarm clock rob Says:

    This clip is hilarious “WHAT IS THAT?”. I think the uniforms look great. They could have picked a better launch pick which is what everyone is basing first impressions off of (22 isn’t flattering in that font, 93 looks much better. And the lighting/coloring is horrible in that photograph). I think these will look good on the field, lets get an orange alt as well as an all pewter alt!

  18. Nark Says:

    Friend of mine works for the Bucs, says they look good in person. Lighting on the photos makes for a bad pic and distorts colors.
