Old-school beats flash for Vikings

Re: Throwback unis

I know they’re not flashy and when he drops back to pass wearing a throwback uniform, Gus Frerotte bears a spookingly-strong resemblance to Steve Dils, but I implore the Wilfs to send the new Vikings uniforms back to the Arena League offices with a nice thank-you note and keep the throwbacks. There’s a reason why the Vikings last year implemented new uniforms — so they can sell them and make money. God knows they need to find creative ways to make money; they’re sure not getting any from playing in the Metrodome, but I’ll go out on a limb and say just as many people would buy a cool throwback than the new funky ones. And if that’s true, then you really have no reason to go back to them. Oh, and while you’re at it Wilfs, keep the facemasks on the helmets gray. I don’t know why, but for some reason, the players just look meaner with gray facemasks, especially the defensive players. The Vikings have a great front four on defense — not as good as the Purple People Eaters of the 70s, but they’re right up there. So please Mr. Wilf and Co. do the fans of your team — the ones who will buy these throwback-style uniforms like they’re going out of style — a favor and get rid of the new uniforms and replace them with the throwbacks. Who knows, maybe the team will revert back in time along with their garb and actually go to a Super Bowl. They’d probably lose, but at least they’ll go.
