“I Love The Creamsicle Uniforms”

November 15th, 2017

Wants uniform change.

Fans of the creamsicles, you can rejoice. You have a powerful ally among your ranks.

Bucs outside linebacker Lavonte David appeared on “Good Morning, Football” today and while talking to Peter Schrager, confessed he’s smitten with the original Bucs uniforms and dreams of the time he can wear the old creamsicles again. And apparently, quite a few of his Bucs teammates want the creamsicles, too.

“I love the creamsicle uniforms,” David said, unable to hide his smile. “I wish we can bring them back. Everybody around here still asks about them.”

David even added the creamsicles bring “swag.”

Joe thinks the creamsicles are cool, too. And of the three renditions of Bucs uniforms in the team’s history, the creamsicles are no worse than No. 2. The classic reds are sweet as well.

The following won’t be popular in certain circles, but Joe has never warmed to the alarm clock/CFL-like uniforms the Bucs have had in recent years. Why is it whenever Nike gets in mitts into things, it can’t help but ruin them?

The only thing positive Joe can say about the alarm clock/CFL-like uniforms is that, under the lights, the numbers pop.

    I personally dislike the new unis too – those numbers are hideous. I really miss the old solid red/white unis.

  2. JonBuc Says:

    I too love the creamsicles…still haven’t warmed up to the current ones.

  3. William Walls Says:

    I could care less about whether the numbers “pop” or not. The current uniform is disgusting.

  4. Not there yet Says:

    They won games I’m sure the Glazer’s would consider it but not while they are losing, no one seems money on things that don’t pay dividends. If all it took for them to play like champs was uniform change, that would be sad but sure the Glazer’s would make the change

    As long as they keep the current logo of the helmet sure color change would be sweet

  5. Warrenfb12 Says:

    Ya I’d be in favor of bringing them back as permanent uniforms. I don’t like the current ones either. They are ugly af. The red is a little bit better than the white. Seems like they never wear red.

  6. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    I’m fine with the unis now. I’d rather them do a Pewter color rush with red letters though. That would be so bad@$$.

  7. Buc1987 Says:

    Currently ugliest uniforms in the league imo.

    Creamsicles are the bomb, only cause I’m a nostalgic type of person.

    The uniforms and the team were made fun of back in the creamsicle days. They went hand and hand.

  8. Bucnjim Says:

    Yeah they really scared the crap out of the opposition! The only way we had a chance to win back then was if the other team was too busy laughing their A$$’s off.

  9. briandorry55 Says:

    Aspects of our new uniform are great in my opinion. I love the more vibrant red. The helmet was a huge improvement…best helmet in the NFL in my opinion with the oversized flag and chrome mask…and the reflective numbers are pretty sweet. I think they just went too far. We could have just altered the older uniforms…brightened up the red and improved the helmet and it would have been great. I don’t like the number style and I don’t like the pewter shoulders…it’s just too much damn pewter for me…especially when we have pewter pants on.

  10. 813bucboi Says:

    the current unis don’t bother me….but I would love for us to go back to the creamsicle unis….GO BUCS!!!!

  11. Evolvingbucfan Says:

    the Creamsicles remind me of bad times and alot of losing times if you have been a bucs fan for a while. HELL NO!!!! plus they are ugly as sin…. give me Blood red and Pewter all day.

  12. Kobe Faker Says:


    Congrats champ

    1 of best defensive performances i seen in awhile

    Brother was all over the field. Absolutely amazing

    I believe pro bowl voting started today at the nfl site

  13. BucTrooper Says:

    1. Super Bowl Red
    2. Creamcicle
    3. Color Rush
    64. Current uniform.

  14. cmurda Says:

    The creamsicles used to make me laugh back in the day. I thought they were borderline embarrassing. Now, I think they would be a major upgrade over the current unis. That’s how much I dislike the current unis. It reminds me of waking up and staring at the alarm clock in disbelief that I have to wake up already. Nobody likes to see that stupid alarm clock. I personally prefer the pewter and red unis. That’s what should be brought back.

  15. cmurda Says:

    @BucTrooper. Exactly. You got the order right.

  16. Greg Says:

    Bring back the creamsicles, the current uniforms are the worst in the league

  17. 77bassguitarist Says:

    The orange pants!!! that’s my love. i’ve always hoped for the return of the orange uniforms but i’m sure the glazers won’t listen. imo the players could do a lot more to bring this to a reality. for what its’s worth i also love the rams old “greatest show on turf” blue and yellow unis as well.

  18. DB55 Says:

    Black jerseys we wore 1 mnf game were the best jerseys ever.

  19. DB55 Says:

    Can you imagine a creamsicle color rush uniform? I think I just threw up.

  20. '79Defense Says:

    Please don’t get me started on these new uniforms. THAT is what NIKE came up with???? Terrible. The best I can say is that the all white combo looks pretty good, but the red jersey is something like a circus big top. How the Glazers every thought that was an improvement, I don’t know.

    Been a fan since the beginning. The Florida orange jersey (I hate the creamsicle term) was great to see in Tampa Stadium on a fall afternoon. I love how other teams would make fun of it, as if the Dolphins logo was something intimidating or the Packers canary yellow and green is so great.

  21. Pickgrin Says:

    Not so sure about bringing back the creamsicle permanently – would like to see them once a year on throwback day though.

    But the current uniforms MUST GO! They SUCK. They are UGLY. They are EMBARRASSING.

    Not the helmets which are fine (pretty cool actually)- the uniforms.


  22. LongSeason Says:

    I’d rather the players pop rather than the numbers pop. Players pop Drew Brees, Can Mewton and Matt Ryan back to the stone age where they belong. Can Mewton. Haha. That’s a good spoonerism for a Karolina Kitty.

  23. Eric Says:

    Love the old uniforms. Hate the ones now. Absurdly over sized emblem. Colors are awful.

  24. Arealbucsfan Says:

    I love the new helmets. Keep those, but change everything else

  25. Joeypoppems Says:

    Im a fan of the creamsicle uniforms. I hate the current uniforms tho

  26. C eh N eh D eh Says:

    This makes my blood boil as much as anything Bucs…What is wrong with the old jerseys? They are original to the TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS…better than looking like a modified Falcons jersey or XFL team…

  27. ndog Says:

    We never wore black jerseys DB55 you must have been dreaming.

  28. ndog Says:

    Our uniforms are unique and that is what they are going for. I like for our team to standout from the crowd, but it seems everyone else would rather have solid red or white jerseys like say the Cardinals, Chiefs, 49ers, Falcons, Texans …. see my point Boring!!!!

  29. Buc Fan South Tampa Says:

    I absolutely HATE the current uniforms. No character. Love the old Pewter and Red, and would give anything to have at least one throwback game per year. I dont believe for a moment that excuse is that the helmets are the reason we dont have them. I remember when we had our first throwback game during the Josh Freeman era, Raymond James was rocking with 1979 music, and the crowd was really into it. They even strung up a sail with Bucco Bruce and the flag at the stern of the ship was a gigantic creamsiicle flag. Awesome times. Lets bring back at least one throwback game per year. Lets go Bryan and Joel. Make it happen.

  30. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I like the old uniforms too, but can do w/o Bucco Bruce

  31. Max Says:

    Superbowl uniform or creamsicle both look good. The current alarm clock uniforms by nike are absolute trash.

  32. DoNUTS Says:

    Get rid of the cannons too! This is not a pirate display at Disneyland. Ive always felt the cannons dont fit a football game atmosphere. They also hurt my ears when I am in the beer line.

    I favor creamsicle unis too. Joe > Uni Poll?

  33. Seminole Bill Says:

    We won a Super Bowl in those former red uniforms. The Glazers changed the style and the team went downhill. Change it back. I still have several of the red-style jerseys in my closet.

  34. Seminole Bill Says:


    Go to the above link. Buc’s current uniforms rank 31st on the list, only ahead of those awful Jaguars uniforms.

  35. Bucsace Says:

    Yup, The old “Creamsickle” uniforms were great, they also were much more unique compared to the current conglomeration of a mess that the current uniforms are. Why not go back to the old colors, but tweak them a little bit, I.E. maybe a new look buco bruce. From a distance you always knew the Bucs in the “Creamsickle” uniforms……now they look like an arena league team……Hey, come to think about it……..they play like one too……Maybe we’re on to something!!!!

  36. JimmyJack Says:

    The only thing I care about our colors is the red jerseys are very cool because you can spill pizza sauce on it without a stain……..That and the fact that we have the hottest cheerleaders are sone of the few bragging rights we get as Tampa fans.

  37. unbelievable Says:

    Classic reds were still my favorite.

    But I would take the creamsickle over the new trash any day if the week, and twice on Sundays.

    The current uniforms are hideous. Looks like Nike and Maryland got together are started puking colors on each other until something stuck.

  38. unbelievable Says:

    @seminole bill-

    It’s funny that the writer of that article has a problem with size of the logo on the helmet, but actually likes the jerseys. The helmet is fine, the jerseys are the problem- the coloring, shoulder stripes, numbers…. all of it is garbage.

  39. mdsbuc Says:

    Put me down as another one that hates the new uniforms, especially the digital looking numbers. I always liked the original uniforms, but the second generation red and pewter ones were a cool change. Lets go a little bit retro on the next ones…

  40. AceofAerospace Says:

    The current uniforms sucked the day they were revealed, they still suck. I will never buy this jersey, ever. Return to the last uniform.

  41. Bucs78 Says:

    Red and Pewter Super Bowl era uniforms are my favorite by far. Creamsickle once a year for a throwback would be ok. I detest the current uniforms, they are best suited for throw away.

  42. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    The Creamsickles are cool but what about helmets? Would that mean we have to bring back Bucco Bruce? Oh noes!

  43. PriMech54 Says:

    I’ve always thought I could’ve done a better job designing the new uni’s.

    They should use the color rush format for the straight red jersey and get rid of the pewter shoulders, change the numbers from that awfully executed “swords”-that-actually-look-like-clock-numbers to the FSU number format (..and no I’m not Nole homer, the #’s are bada$s), keep the helmet but shrink the logo just a tad bit, with pewter pants and red socks to tie it up.

    That would be clean. It would have some class.
    and we wouldn’t look like a semi-pro team from the year 2028.

  44. Archie Bunker Says:

    Creamsickle pants with double red stripes. White jersey. Red numbers. White helmet. Red flag with Bucco Brucn on flag. A little old. A little new

  45. Mike Says:

    So many people see alarm clock numbers on these unis. That was my first impression too. When I read about the uniform change the article read that the Bucs were going for something along the lines of looking like the edge or tips of swords. EPIC FAIL!!! Most if not everyone sees alarm clock numbers. At least change back to the classic red and keep the current logo.

  46. Matt407 Says:

    ld is the best player on this team week in week out always making plays and bring back the creamsicles
