I'm going to wait for the unveiling on April 3, then I'm gonna unload.

The only rumor I hear is that the uniform is going to "put more emphasis on gray" (this form Danny O'Neil).

Makes sense. People have strong emotional affinities for bold colors like gray. (Not.)

You know who else wore gray?

- The Confederacy
- The Luftwaffe
- Vassar

From personal experience I can tell you it does afford a certain dignity in defeat.

Thinking it over, it might be an improvement. The two problems with the current uniform are 1) the lighter shade of blue, and 2) lack of contrast. Even if they simply replaced the lighter blue with gray, that would be better.

I have so many things to grumble about these days that this doesn't even break the top 100. This is not to suggest that I won't have a strong opinion about it at any moment...that I will share with you ad nauseam after I kick the kids off of the lawn.

Now that I have had some time to think about it, I hate it.

Well, given it's Nike, it'll probably be flat gunmetal gray with a tire tread across the chest (or something).

Why are the Seahawks putting up with these carpetbagging Oregonians?

I have a considered professional opinion, as a credentialed artist with a terminal degree.

Green. Make the lower fucking bar GREEN. Shut the Fuck UP with the airy-fairy saliva-spraying bullshit you lawyer-fucking corporate-licking mouse-pushing Digi-fops and make it GREEN.

Football teams do not have accents, they have colors. The team colors are blue and GREEN.

My lecture on the separate issue of Seahawks logo Tlingit-Haida-Coast Salish line-form failure will be held at Century Link Field November 10th.
