Friday open thread: Will you be buying a new Lions jersey?

New, comments

Now that you’ve seen the new jerseys, will you be purchasing one?

A few weeks ago, when the Detroit Lions leaked previews of the new uniforms, I polled our audience to see who was interested in purchasing a new jersey. Here are the results.

Only 29 percent of you said yes, but another 38 percent said it would depend on what the new uniforms looked like.

Well, after Thursday night’s reveal, Detroit has four brand-new jersey options for their fans. The home jerseys doesn’t look all that much different, but all three other options offer drastic changes. The most drastic change, the color rush jersey, also happens to be the most divisive. It is currently the most popular jersey according to our poll, but I’ve seen plenty—myself included—that aren’t really a fan of them.

Anyways, today’s Question of the Day is:

Now that you’ve seen the design, will you be buying a new jersey? If so, which one?

My answer: Don’t worry, my answer is still no. The Jeremy Reisman Jersey Curse is too real, and I couldn’t do that to my team. That being said, those throwbacks are fly and I want one. Nothing bad would happen if I bought a Barry Sanders throwback jersey, right? Right??

Your turn.
