    Mangini = White Cleats

    just a thought but since herm is gone I wonder if the black cleats are also gone. Personally, I hope so, I always liked the Namath white shoes better. slow day, so dont hurt me too bad.

    black cleats make you look slow. remember Bud Grant's Viking teams? they always looked slow cuz Bud hated white shoes.

    And Amen on getting rid of the Gumby costumes.

    I'm just glad I won't have to look at Herm looking like a complete moron with his shirts buttoned all the way to the top without a tie on. He even did that with Polo shirts.

    Bring back the white cleats....this is the team of Joe Willie and his White shoes after all.

    Those big fat O-Linemen look really daft with black shoes...it's just plain wrong

    Namath sneakers

    There was a story behind Joe Willies white sneakers but I forgot what it was. It was so long ago and I have CRS. Something along the lines that the normal shoes covered the ankle while his was like sneakers are today. Was a long time ago and even sneakers were different then around 1966 if I recall when he came up. He was the only one on the team to do it and it was almost symbolic because he was the $400,000 man.
