Eleven months after he left, Riggins returned to training camp in 1981 with a new contract, telling the media "I'm bored, I'm broke, and I'm back."
Loved the White on Gold.
Love the Burgundy on Gold.
Gold pants should be the default uni regardless IMHO.
Its a shame they dropped the burgundy pants and kept the white pants, but hopefully they will be back next year. Atleast we dont wear white at home anymore so we only have to deal with those stupid collars for 7 games in the regular season.
Hated the black shoes w the gold and white unis. Everyone but Trent must be color blind.

Rant (sorry if this has been covered):
This isn't particular to just the Skins jerseys (just those teams with numbers on the shoulders -- e.g. note that the Bills only have stripes sans numbers), why does Nike insist on jamming the logo in so close:
Why don't they just turn the entire jersey into one big swoosh and get it over with?

I'm glad for a uniform change. Its not like the Skins didnt suck for the last 20 years or anything. The collar is cool. I like it better than the old collar. Nike is known for the college jerseys so I expected a change in the jersey that was subtle yet more of a college feel. I dont really care if they wear yellow or red pants as long as they win..

Oh and when's the last time Nike "didn't" **** anything up with their jersey designs?
Redskins 2013 Opponents:
Home- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City, San Diego
Away- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Denver, Oakland
I know its only preseason but the throwbacks for the skins vs bears should definetely be used this week
Everyone needs to get over the collars and blaming it on Nike. The teams have the final say on all this jersey related. Want proof? Look at the Packers collars on their Nike jerseys:
Looks the same as it always has.

I second MattFancy here. Each team chose the jersey design elements, including the collar. The burgundy jerseys have a solid collar all around and the white jersey collars are slightly different. If we kept the same uniform designs, as a handful of teams chose to, then some of you would have something to say about that. At the end of the day, it's a decision made by the team I love and I'll choose not to complain about it. I've been through worse (Haynesworth, McNabb). Hail!
I wish we'd wear white-toed, green cleats, so that every sideline catch looks like it was in-bounds.
