    Re: Per WNST: No Black Uniforms for 2006



    It's all about the play on the field, not about what they wear.

    Doesn't hurt my feelings, I don't like them.

    I thought they were OK but wasn't crazy about the whole look. Doesn't break my heart to see them go, at least for this season.

    Im guessing it's party due to no night games scheduled at home.

    Does the flex scheduling the NFL is using include moving teams to night games or just later afternoon games?

    I am fine with the RAVENS not wearing the black uniforms this year. Given the fact we have no night games at home, it was probably why they didn't submit the request to the NFL to wear them.

    I believe it also includes the NBC Sunday Night Game. At least according to one place I read:

    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/colum...tand-nfl_x.htm

    "Flexing kicks in during the season's last seven weeks — meaning it will start with Week 11 — and allows changes in Sunday night game schedules just 12 days in advance."

    Can anyone get a more recent ruling on that?

    Why the NFL puts a timeline on a request what jersey to wear just amazes me. Doesn't the league have more important issues to review. Like plyers who continue get locked up. There should not be any time line to wear another jersey. They can change the time of a game later in the season why not do the same with the color of the jersey a team wants to wear.

    That is absolutely correct. Just another NFL enigma. In many ways, a fascist organization. (but such successful fascists!)

    The black uniforms are sweet, but the purple one is the one I love the most.

    Too bad. While I am a fan of the all black unis, the thing I always noticed was how the players seemed to get up for those games. There is just something about wearing all black that makes a person feel invincible.

    I bet if we have a playoff home game or make it to Miami, the black uni will make an appearance. You can wear the alternate once during the playoffs, I remember because San Diego talked about saving their throwback powder blues for the Superbowl 2 years ago.

    Hey Mob,
    With all due respect, perception is not reality.

    My highschool team colors were Black and Orange and my teammates and I always felt a little something extra when strapping up our all black unis.

    Hey Mob,

    I am not sure exactly what you are trying to say here. While perception is not always reality, when we are talking about how a certain thing makes ME feel then perception can absolutely become reality. If I feel that wearing gloves can make me a better receiver, then the chances of me actually being a better receiver are increased. Similar in concept to a Placebo Effect.

    Re: The pitch black uni-s this year?

    IIRC, we can still alternate jerseys at home. We could, early in the season, opt to wear white instead of purple. This would keep our players cooler. I've seen it done in previous years, but forgot to keep track of it last year.

    Anyone know which games, if any, the Ravens wore white at home last year?
    She had me at "Hell, NO!"

    Don't remember last year, but I know we were wearing white for Jamal's 295 yard game in 2003 and when we whooped the Steelers (and made Ben a starter) at home in 2004. Both were in early-mid September.
