We look good in the matte part -- let's keep consistent and go all matte. Or, we look good in all mesh like last year's -- let's keep consistent and go all mesh.
You know what doesn't work?
Looking like a four-square court. Looking like every one of our players has an excessively sweaty midriff and armpits.
To the fan, we look like a complete fashion wreck. To the other team, we look un-intimidating, like a damn bunch of kangaroos or teletubbies. To our own team, we look excessively sweaty and out of shape.
I don't see how anyone benefits from this situation, aside from Nike who pitched some new hideous experimental design to the Jets, and Woody who was stupid enough to sign off on it.
Woody, WTF is this???
And Woody did what to change the uniforms?
What changed other than different materials were used by Nike to make the unis more comfortable?
Oh wait, how you perceive the unis to look on TV is much more important, what were we thinking.
Then again you're tag line calls for the ugly middle ages unis over our classic original unifrom.
