    Black on black is intimidating - plus they are invisible at night games. (if the lighting fails)

    Most would agree? Based on what? The Steelers are the black jersey team in the AFC North. Why the hell would we want to copy them?

    So you want BLACK with a little purple and GOLD... ill pass on anything black and gold. Uniforms are fine the way they are. i dont think they need something more "manly". Its just a color and id dare anyone to tell ray lewis or haloti Ngata they arent "manly" in purple. I do prefer the black ones personally but im fine with purple as well. The all black isnt really my favorite at all.

    Re: I think the Ravens should change their color scheme

    I like the Black on Black. If they wanted to put purple accents on them, that would be cool, but when I think of the bird, I think black.

    Purple is the color of royalty.

    And the Vikings.... meh....

    Royal? By who?
    Ravens are scavengers. They are however, considered the smartest of birds and often cooperate in the hunt. Sound familiar?

    The link was pretty clear who views the birds as royal -- the British for one.

    What does green have to do with a jet, or blue with a colt, or teal with a jaguar?

    I'm not a huge fan of the white uni's I like the Purple tops on Black bottoms the best, then Purple top on white bottoms. Solid Blacks are awesome too, but I think they need to be kept for special occasion games.

    I like the uniform schemes just the way they are now. Occasionally the black top on white pants is cool, but I am not a fan of the all-black look.

    Re: I think the Ravens should change their color scheme

    I like both purple and black tops, so I'm OK with alternating. Only thing I don't care for is the all-black unis; those make the players look like they're wearing Spandex pajamas.

    OK, much as I dislike the all-black, I'll concede they can wear those when playing in Candlestick.

    Re: I think the Ravens should change their color scheme

    I hate any combination that has the black pants. Not only do they look like spandex, but it also looks like a college team (a Division II one at that).

    I prefer the purple tops for home, but also like the white tops for the road. In either case, I like the white pants with both. However, I kinda liked the black tops with white pants against the 49ers at night. It was a pretty sharp look.

    So basically, I'm saying keep things the way they are, with the black tops as our alternate uniform (night game only).

    Re: I think the Ravens should change their color scheme

    When this topic has come up before I've used the occasion to lobby for a "compromise" for the black versus purple people. I've always favored -- and hoped that the Nike uniform gurus would be in favor of -- choosing a jersey fabric that actually mimics the black-purple sheen of an actual Raven. Such as...
