Anyone else still a lil vexed the Pats stole our unis?

Recommended Posts

...yeah, yeah, slow news day around here, but after seeing the Pats logo I got to recalling how they pretty much stole the Bills uniform.  I mean, prior to the SB years, the Pats were in these...

Then came their current unis, which were a completely blatant rip-off of the then-dominant Bills unis...

Alright, the new ones have a patriot head...that's about all that's still in common.  Blue jerseys like the Bills...check.  White pants like the Bills...check.  Logo with a streak...check.  Hell...a blue logo with a red streak...just like the Bills...check.  Why is the disembodied Patriot head even streaking?  That's a buffalo charge thing...are people frequently drawn streaking?  I mean I suppose to their credit they at least didn't go with a red helmet, but damn that is some pretty blatant copying.  I'm surprised they got away with it, especially since the Bills were in their division.  It's not like they ripped off a NFC team or such.  They changed unis, copied the unis of a winning team in an effort to reverse their fortunes...and ironically succeeded.

 

Now this isn't a big deal, I'm not mad about it, raging, losing sleep or anything over it.  It just...mildly irritates me now and then and wondered if any of you felt the same.

Did you just say blue jersey and white pants, then show a picture showing they are blue jerseys and grey pants? I assume this is sarcasm?  If so, let’s add that they also put in a HOF #12 qb.  Why can’t they be original?

This thread makes no sense. The NE uniforms look nothing like Buffalo's.  Come on July 26th!

Maybe I'm just slow but those don't look anything like Bills unis of any era.

 

Same here.

All the AFL era uniforms were/are pretty solid.

 

 

And also, if anything, we ripped off the old school Pats jersey with our “color rush” reds.

I actually do too.

 

That logo has a lot of detail, and is far more creative than the current one.

And it turned out looking more like the wicked witch of the west's soldiers from The Wizard of OZ.

There was a period of time when Gillette Stadium would play that war chant the soldiers made. It was quite funny.

Their throwbacks always make me reminisce about the '85 Bears trying to rip Steve Grogan's head off his giraffe neck in SB XX.  Ahhh... memories.

How hard did you look?  There's actually a thread started on Sunday about bringing back TO... at least this one's mildly amusing.

Also "vexed" doesn't mean what he thinks it means.
