Supposedly a Nike insider has leaked information that we have given Nike freelance control over our team. I'm on my phone so I can't post the link, but here's a portion of it.
"reddit – One of my very good friends and fraternity brothers works for a company called Hydrographics Inc. HGI works in conjunction with many sports outfitters (especially Nike) and is the leading company in helmet design in this nation. I was the first to let Fins and Vikings fans know about the changes they got last season. Anyways to make this post actually worth your time reading it, I too saw the rumors yesterday about your team possibly being in the market for new uniforms. I called up my buddy and asked him if there was any truth to the rumors. Here’s what he had to say:
Yes, you are getting new uniforms
This has been in the making since Nike took over
Until this past Sunday’s events, Orange was to be the primary
Orange is no longer the primary as of Monday morning and Nike has been green lit to test a new color scheme
The Uniforms have a deadline of the 2015 Draft
This is the longest uniform project Nike has ever undertaken, and just like in 97 the Broncos will be given a template completely unique to them, not even Oregon will have this template for a couple years
A new logo is in the works
Phil Knight wants the Broncos to become the Oregon of the NFL. The team holds a special place in his heart as the first football team to let Nike have complete control over a design.
So there you have it Denver. Official news should come out around the beginning of next season. Nike is going to hype up this reveal big time."
Personally I hate this. The orange is the Broncos. Sure, we haven't won a Super Bowl in the orange jerseys but still, this is awful. I'm sure we will get even more bandwagon fans after the change, just like Oregon has.
