Chris Creamer's Sports Logos Community

The above link is to a thread on a uniform message board I'm apart of regarding possible logo/uniform changes for NFL teams next year. One of the posters apparently has inside info as to logo/identity packages for all 32 NFL teams. He (or she) said that all teams have given the go-ahead for Nike to start designing next year's apparel, except four. Three of the teams are Miami, Minnesota, and Jacksonville, all of which have either confirmed or have rumors concerning logo/uniform changes for next year. The poster also said that the two teams who delayed in giving the go-ahead for apparel designs last year were Seattle and Carolina, who ended up having new uniforms and logos, respectively.

The surprise fourth team is the Bucs. In the subsequent posts, the poster tries to calm people by saying that it could just mean a minor change (logo tweak, making the ship logo the primary, etc.), but he doesn't say that the delay could be totally unrelated to a possible change.

Though I think we have one of the best logo and uniform sets in the league, it is 16 years old with absolutely no change whatsoever. Even teams with undoubtedly classic designs have gone through slight tweaks here and there. It also doesn't surprise me all that much, considering it seems as if the Glazers have been really trying to get the idea of a "New era in Tampa Bay" (my term, as far as I know) across to fans. Don't get your hopes up too much, but this still is an interesting talking point.

Btw: The link should take you to the point in the thread where the Bucs are first being discussed.

Interesting stuff. Uniform changes do seem to excite fan bases. That coupled with the outlook of a healthy and offseason improved Bucs may be just the thing that this fan base needs. Cool.

I do hope it's only minor tweaks, as I do think the Bucs got some of the best threads in the league.

The alternative would be a HUGE neck ring stripe. Take a look at what the Texans have now. I prefer how we chose to do it.

We could beg Nike to get rid of the flywire completely, like a few other teams successfully did, but I don't think Nike would oblige.

Yeah, the Texan's collar is horrendous. I'd much prefer that we just stick to the normal collar, though. Much better look.

I sincerely hope not. But I'm afraid it's more likely than people think.

Pretty crazy Nike concepts. But like other have said, I don't think anything that big will be happening.

At first look, it wouldn't make sense to as the Glazers are the ones who first pushed for new uni's and a new stadium to go with their "new-look bucs", but the throwback games have been a success in terms of merchandise sales and stadium attendance.

Perhaps the "change" won't be a complete change to the orange, but new uni's that incorporate more orange into them, moreso than they do right now.

Yeah, those were all just fan-made concepts. Most of which were made by members of the board I linked to. Ultimately, I agree that I don't think much will be happening. I think we may see a change to the wordmark that has been used in all the new ads, though.

Hopefully we go back to the orange. Then people can cry endlessly for a throwback game, and after 10 years, the Glazers can give in, bringing the red and pewter back one week a year. And then everyone can talk about how great those uniforms were and how there never should have been a switch back.

Not until we stop having throwback games...or the NFL adopts an NCAA-type uniform policy.

Styles change so frequently from a decade to decade basis, so you have 2 choices

- Never Change Uniform

Result: Your uniform is a classic!(Packers, Steelers, etc..)

- Change Uniform every 10 years

Result: $$$$, very forgettable uniforms.

This talk doesn't actually mean a change in the uniform, it is for apparel which means that there is going to be some kind of change to the logo. I could simply mean they are putting an orange outline on the logo and that is it.

Now Personally I do hope that they are going back to Bucco Bruce, as I much prefer the old uniforms.

I too would like to see a return to the old uni's. I don't think that's going to happen though. I've never really warmed up to the pewter coloring.

BucsFan6000, has someone over there designed a bucs jersey that is pewter in color but with red numbering and orange outline to those numbers?

Would look sweet

I think that the Bucs logo here is a great compromise between old and new. Pewter and orange. It's Bucco Bruce, without the effeminate 1970's look.

I'd be more than happy to sport this on our helmets.
