    On the season tickets those are the two games the players are show wearing the powder blue instead of the dark blue jerseys.

    They are very different. Of the three new ones they are my least favorite. Which is a switch as with the new-old unis they were my favorite. They may grow on me, I havent closed my mind to them. Just my first new Jersey will be a defense # Navy.

    Love the white helmets though, just wish they had the numbers on the sides.

    IMO The numbers on the sides of the old helmets is by far the worst thing about the throwbacks. I mean seriously, how manyplaces do they have to have thier numbers displayed?

    The new uniforms are nice. It's jsut gonna take some people longer than others to get used to them. Personally, the more I see 'em, the more I love 'em. Can't wait to see them in all their glory in 12 days.

    I don't believe the Chargers have ever worn a "Powder Blue" uniform and I hope we never do.:bolt:

    I actually like the jersey, but the Powder Blue stripe down the side of the pants ruins it. You guys will see what I mean when the entire team is on the field.

    I agree.......i dont care for the numbers on the helmet either and i dont think they will be on the powder blues since they are new uni's and not throwbacks.

    The numbers on the helmet are old school Bolts, I will miss that on the new edition. They have also removed the number from the sleeve of the jersey, which was an innovation of Vince Lombardi, I believe, for ease of player identification. Our Bolt's put it on the helmet and I think it worked just fine.:bolt:

    IMO the new helmets are perfect, far better than the throw backs, or any past helmet design.

    I'll give the jerseys more time, I still prefer the over-the-shoulder bolt.

    The new pant bolt is sharp.

    I **** you not, Jim Steeg, in a response to my e-mail about how bad the new unis suck, told me that their research showed that it was the color that people loved, not the particular throwback unis. I fully called bullshit! Who did they poll? I can't believe that it was actual Charger fans.

    The upside down/backward bolt is the single worst part of the new unis. I could almost live with the girly numbers if they had just gotten the freaking bolts right.

    Nope. I guess I will be the lone holdout. I do not accept the new unis. I will tolerate them, but I will never like them.

    We've been talking about it for months now.. Thank God the draft finally came along otherwise it wouldn't have stopped. Some people like them, some people hate them, and some could give a sh*t. Move on! Let's play some f*cking football!
