Traditionalists love uniforms of classic teams like the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2012, Nike became the official outfitter of the NFL.
A few teams have updated their uniforms since then.
A couple of years ago, there was an image circulating the internet of football jerseys for the University of Michigan, supposedly designed by Nike.
While to non-football fans this may seems like a trivial detail, a team's uniform and colors are important to projecting an image that is vital to a team and its fans.However, it was also disappointing to many Wolverine fans because Michigan is one of the few Division I college football teams sponsored by Adidas and not Nike.The spread of this image led to a bigger debate of who has better jerseys: Nike or Adidas?The understated and the nuanced become classics while the ostentatious become punchlines. If you could take any two colors on the color wheel, combine any two letters from ROY G BIV's name, orange and violet would probably be the least palatable option.The Tigers' jerseys in this combo aren't violet, but actually a darker, uglier, less complimentary shade.
