Because this ownership group does no give a sh*t about Jets history.

Please tell me you didn’t think their alternate uni was a throwback? The only throwback they did was the Titans… adding a black helmet the the alt uni is not a throwback… cmon guys 🤦🏻‍♂️

They’re popular.  Fans like black uniforms.  


12-18 year old fans maybe. Those are also the ones who dominate social media and like things like new uniforms that look like they belong in a comic book. The NBA does this as well. Unfortunately the NFL will probably end up with NBA type of viewership numbers at some point if they dont start improving the game rather than ruining the uniforms like these terrible new Jets uniforms.

Not only NFL but college football likes black uniforms.  And baseball fans.  And players in both sports.  It’s not just social media kids.

A crazier take is that black uniforms led to the NBAs demise and will bring down the NFL.  Every year their popularity grows and some fan who doesn’t like a rule change or a uniform predicts it will fade away.

You missed the point. The NFL will lose popularity because not playing defense and having crazy offense is a gimmick that only bumps ratings for so long. Eventually it becomes not as exciting and even unwatchable. Idk how you can say changing uniforms is what fans love. Based on what? The NBAs ratings are horrible and continue to go down. They have been doing this for years and the rating have been falling for years.

in all seriousness calling it"stealth black" is incredibly corny. The Jets marketing is beyond cringe.

Jerry Jones and Robert Kraft own stakes in Draft Kings, there is no way crazy offense and scoring is going to go away. 

The NFL is in business to make money, if teams lose money by changing uniforms then they won't do it.

I was really hoping for a F16 style grey rather than the black unis but I think they are fine. The weird arrows on the sleeves bother me more than the colors.

That helmet looks amazing. Loving the stealth black.

In terms of throwbacks, I like the Titans uniforms mostly because it’s obvious it’s a throwback. 😂 It gives a “who the hell is playing vibe”.

Our current standard uniforms are ok. I like the last ones we had a little better.

I was just about to post the same thing.  Embrace the military side of our name.  
I'd love to go A-10 Thunderbolt and get a shark faced helmet logo.

And I’d bet the house it’s working or they’d be on something else.  
I always find these threads interesting in that fans come on and basically say that their favorite is the best, all other options suck and the reasons for change are stupid when they haven’t gotten what they were hoping for.

Sunday Ticket is going from a $2N deal to an asking price that started at over $4B.  TV is going up big time this year and has new providers like Amazon lining up to air games.  Attendance is at its peak.  But the sky is falling call still comes out periodically

I think stealth black is 'fine'.

I work for a major advert agencies on many brands... my bigger question is what is the end game ? The Jets never seem to have a laser focused strategy in their marketing ... unless this is leading somewhere it smells like a cheap pop up shop cash grab.

Again its 'safe' and 'fine'.

Well then the real question is what’s the leagues trend to new uninformed then.  The Steelers, a fame franchise has a black uni, 49rs etc.   The list goes on and on with black uniforms, a special occasion uniform and who hasn’t tweaked their look or changed it completely.  It’s not a Jets thing.

Rule one. .. the trend will never get you a home run. Basically that mindset is for coat tail riding.

This stuff is like the Prism card variations. Little kids try to get each variation. The NFL is also hoping people try to get every jersey variation to match what a team is wearing. Ill be wearing a sweatshirt to games. T Shirt if its hot out.

Everything is going up big time. Its called inflation.

Love the black helmet, love the colors, hate the goofy cartoon'ish USFL looking logo. If they would have stuck the 80's logon on that black helmet, it would have been a home run.

Stealth black sounds like an advertisement for a great adventure ride not a football team. Just call it the black helmet. It’s dumb.

I don't hate the alternates. I don't despise the regular uniform and the horrendous color combinations. I root for the laundry, even when it looks like ours. When we start winning, we will embrace these abominations. I prefer the classic Namath uniforms, but wrestling, football and sports are for young people. We can tag along but we are old men (At least many of us are) watching kids play. This is a young person's uniform, and THAT is ok.

It makes sense for a team called The Jets to use a term that is associated with another type of aircraft. I don't find it corny and cringe at all. We root for a team with a commercial airliner in the original logo. How does a Jet even play football? It doesn't have arms or legs.

It seems that the colors are now white, green, and black. The black became an unofficial color when they deviated from the all black "alternative" jersey. I don't care if they change the colors to purple, taupe, turquoise and brown if this team plays well.

When you get your team I’m sure all these complaints will lead to success.  
Calling their black coloring strath black really shouldn’t bother anyone as much as the complainers would have you believe.

Sunday Ticket isn’t going from 2B to 4+B due to inflation.  


The deal isnt done as far as I know. Its also not an apples to apples comparison with the old deal. It possibly includes a stake in NFL media and many other things. Year over year inflation is 9%. Which means they need to grow revenue by 9% just to break even. Thats net income. All of these sports will be using gimmicky things like this in order to accomplish this. Its not an easy thing to get 20% increase in margins to keep up with forecasts idc what business you are in.

They look great and will sell like crazy. Sorry to all the grumpy fans who want to be mad about it 😂

also for those who make fun of people talking about jerseys… cmon… we hang them on our walls and wear them with pride… the all time greats jerseys even get retired… but you act like you are too cool to talk about them… 🤦🏻‍♂️
