The NFL is getting rid of at least one minor part of our national Thursday night nightmare, though the games that multiple players complained about last season will, indeed, continue, this time on Fox.
With the new platform for the games will come some changes, and one of those changes appears to be the limiting of “gimmicks” to get fans to watch the games. That includes the infamous Color Rush jerseys teams had worn for the last few seasons. The setup was a chance for Nike to introduce new uniforms for teams on the weekly showcase, but the results were not always aesthetically pleasing.
A Bills/Jets matchup was difficult for colorblind people to even follow, and sometimes the bright choices teams like the Seattle Seahawks made were downright garish. Fox’s iteration of Thursday Night Football, however, will look a lot more like the football you’ll see on Sundays this fall.
