    Looking forward to getting my jerseys from the overseas knockoff artists, who give us WAY MORE VALUE for our money, saving $$$$ to us, from the NFL, NFLPA, agents, league officials, teams, players, etc.
    They already rape the fan$$$$, I am proud to support the Asians, who prove that it's not the actual cost to manufacture that makes them $100-$200. It's all the layers of GREED we have to pay, with the NFL and now NIKE the worst!

    Gonna just keep my current jerseys. Don't need a swoosh until there's a new number I want, right now 90 is my number. but I agree with you, when I do, I will buy from the same overseas guy I buy from. I am tired of being bled dry.

    Now the mystery is will the Packers make a 3rd jersey of the new material later? I really think the reason why the Packers stayed with tradition is because they wanted to keep it simple for their seamstress, and that if the Packers were going to do a change up they might as well wait a few seasons since their centennial is around the corner and/or celebrate that their new stadium changes.

    As long as we carry the tradition of the Packers and we have the "G" and the name/stadium, the colors shouldn't matter. (But I care about the Green and Gold as if it were my brother) lol

    It seems like they rejected everything Nike had to offer and kept with what they had. Who wants to bet that the Seahawks fans are going to go after the new jersey versus old jersey.

    Anyone kind of get the feeling the Packers kind of went if it an't broke don't fix it?

    Tradition baby, if there is one team that says tradition its the Packers. The uniform changed just before the 5 championships in 7 years. They are as Identified with the Pack as Lambeau, the Ice Bowl, The Frozen Tundra. I hope they never change.

    True but the Bowl is still the Bowl with bench seats and will never change. What would you change about the uniform anyway?

    Just the cleats, the rest has entirely too much history. The gloves are what is popular right now, but the cleats are where we get to show off and be flashy. They are supposed to be Nike, so they should have impressed me. They didn.

    Even with the improved noise level, the open end let the wind whip through...

    Why Change? The Packers embody tradition. Stick to your standard.

    Was hoping for a white Woodson. Only home jerseys are up. lol. And am I right in assuming the "Elite" jersey is the one considered "authentic"? They're $250 so that certainly is an "authentic" price, but I thought the "Elite" was the mid-level.

    Elite is Authentic level, the midgrade jerseys aren't out yet so Nike can keep up with their profits. I saw a message that the Chiefs are giving away the premier jerseys to each person owning season tickets this year, one per holder, would be awesome if the Packers could do that for shareholders, I don't think it feels right for season ticket holders only because so many people are on the waiting list and would miss out.

    When selling an inferior product like the chiefs do, you need gimmicks like a free jersey.

    I called the Pro Shop and they said there was some production issue and the white ones won't be available until later. Like, training camp, later. D'oh! Mooooooore waiting. Hahaha. Oh well.

    I just checked out the Packers ProShop and, at least in the pictures, the jersey's look like they have a different shade of green. It looks almost like a washed-out Forest Green.
