Tampa Bay Buccaneers new uniforms: Fans and media react on Twitter

On Monday morning, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers unveiled their new uniforms. Much to some people’s chagrin (see: this guy), they didn’t go back to the terrifically hideous creamsicle threads of yesteryear.

We were a little bit mixed over the new duds here at Gamedayr HQ, so we decided to check the pulse of social media. The Twitterverse is never short on opinions, and this was no exception. Here are some of the best reactions from fans and media over the new-look Bucs.

  • Agonizing Truth

    Horrific. It’s almost like Nike was going for the ugliest possible uniforms they could design then took it up a notch from that. Garish doesn’t begin to describe it. Frankly the old creamsicle orange and red from days gone by wasn’t my all time favorite NFL uniforms but they beat the hell out of these monstrosities. The worst part if I had to pick one part would be the digital “alarm clock” numbers. There’s a reason why no NFL teams have had these before. They look ugly as shit and totally out of place on a uniform. Buccaneers ownership, ask for your money back. Or NFL leadership ban these uniforms from your league as a disgrace to football.

    And what the hell is up with Nike? Are they on acid? For f**k’s sake all they are anymore is a design and marketing establishment, all their crap is actually made in Cambodian sweatshops and has been for quite some time. If all you have to do is the design and marketing end of it one would think they would be able to concentrate on designing GOOD (or at least PASSABLE) looking uniforms with no problems. They should be able to do this in their sleep. But instead we get horrible looking trash like this, like the Jaguars ugly uniforms and the Seahawks garbage. If I owned any stock in Nike I wouldn’t even sell it, I’d wipe my ass with it.
