2021 off-season discussion


Recommended Posts

Anyone got an idea when our next jersey is going to be released? I remember seeing two more jerseys are going to be coming; one this year and one next. My guess is a yellow and potentially a black alternate.

My hope is for the white Superbowl throwback to be one of them though. Bengals just did their jersey release so maybe we saw our new one around draft time?

I'd still love a blue and gold STL throwback, but I know it'll never happen. The new helmet in gold would look sweet.

As long as the jerseys and pants aren't the same color, they'll be good. I hate when teams do that.

Honestly, just from a branding and market standard, I think you can give up on the gold (like a metallic gold) ever being in the color wheel for us for the foreseeable future.  It's subtle, but there is often an effort to maintain some color continuity (minus a somewhat less-subtle, but also not-overt effort over the last 15-20 years to avoid color associations with large-scale/local street gangs) across teams in the market, where available.  A considerably more yellowed-gold is pretty heavily standard across the LA market (I'm not counting MLS, because I genuinely don't believe they're factored in) - it's prominent in the Lakers and USC color-schemes, it's something the Kings have made a point to not remove fromfor  their alternate color-scheme even when they had an opportunity to maintain a switch they'd made, they switch back.  Also, the change from imperial royal and yellow to incorporate in the old gold into the color-scheme was a signifier of the move to St. Louis, which is still a raw spot for the loyalists in LA who did comeback or even maintained after the moveback (I know a decent chunk of people who still supported the Rams but did so igcognito while outright refusing to purchase/wear anything in the "St. Louis colors").

I think the yellow and black are going to be the 2. I'd be down for that I'd have to see the white but right now I just think it would look like the Colts too much.
