As we’ve mentioned before, Nike’s jersey design template has some flaws. One thing that has received many complaints from fans are the toilet seat necklaces. It looks terrible and really out of place. In fact, it compromised some original design elements for teams.
Apparently though, some teams have decided to get rid of the two-tone collar design. As you can see by the above image compared to the design used last season.
According to Nike’s online shop page, they’ve photoshopped some gametime images with updates to the collar design. By my count, the Buccaneers, Ravens, Bills, Broncos and Chargers are the teams changing. The Saints, Rams and Bengals are keeping their toilet seat look and the Redskins white jerseys were not revealed. The Cardinals’ jersey is also unknown due to the picture.
Is this a sign of teams realizing that Nike’s original idea was terrible and they want to fix it? Even the Bills have dropped the entire Flywire deal completely. They look so much better now without the toilet seat necklace.
Nike has gone over through a minor change in their design template for the college teams so maybe in a year or two, they’ll adopt this and more changes come to the NFL. But let’s hope this doesn’t mean changes every year or two and it becomes a college-type deal. This is the NFL, so something like that should be avoided.
But progress is here with these changes. I hope that the new Jaguars, Dolphins and Vikings uniforms also eliminate the toilet seat necklace.
On a note, if you scroll to the bottom of the page here, how could they misspell Darrelle Revis’ name?
