    I like these red jerseys. They look better than those retro lighting bolt white jerseys they wore last year. Anything to make additional revenue I suppose.:ohwell:

    why?

    The uniform looks more orange than red. Compared to the pic...the old teal is lookin pretty good

    The Pistons already have a winning tradition and league respect. How often have the Celtics, Lakers, or Bulls changed colors in the last 25 years?

    What are they looking to establish here? Maybe their chameleon-like change in offensive output to suit the league's preference for scorers...?

    I hope this is a Photoshop hoax...otherwise, woe are my eyes :faint2:

    is this just an alternate jersey or is this a permanent road or home jersey?
    I've always wondered why we didn't have a red alternate jersey. if it's a permanent home or away ersey i won't lke it though i like the white and blue as our jerseys, and we should sometimes where the red ones.

    It's going to be our alternate road jersey. I don't think they're too bad. Although I really don't see the need to have an alternate jersey. It's obviously just a marketing scheme to get the fans to spend more money.

    Good point. Most times I just see 'the team' and forget 'the business'.

    I hear ya. Teams, in all sports, are always trying to come up with ways to increase their revenue. That's why you see teams change their logos, jerseys, etc. like how the Lions added the black outlines around the numbers on the jerseys and the lion on their helmets. Their comments on the change was "It gives us a tougher look." But, of course it really just had to do with $.

    its only in alternate jersey according to zoso so we wont see it that often on the players. take philly for example they barely where there alternate jersey which i actually like it's a bluish type of color, but anyways philly barely ever wheres those jersey's the usually just stick with the black and white ones.

    i know it sounds homerish, but i think the Piston's home whites are the best looking uniforms in the NBA. so simple, sleek, and traditional looking. very timeless, imo.

    Not terrible, but not Not terrible either.

    I can't wait to get a red Piston jersey to go with my black Lions jersey. Shoot, where's the orange and black Tiger jersey at?

    Yup

    Definitely looks like the Bobcats'

    Thanks we're nowhere near their record. Maybe we can make them look good when people say the Bobcats win over San Antonio!!!! Oh wait, it's the Pistons.

    Definitely. :nod:

    Sorry fellas but my honest opinion is:

    I absolutely hate it when I see it on Darko. It looks dorky. Maybe I just think Darko looks dorky.

    But I liked the picture of the uniform standing alone better. (still not sure I like it though). :ohwell:

    It's not just you. It looks bad on Darko because he has a terrible skin tone for bright colors ... maybe its a blood flow issue. I want to see the uni on someone else before I make up my mind.

    I like it. I will be one of the poor souls that picks this jersey up immediately. Now where's my checkbook? :)

    I have to agree. Why choose a model with notoriously poor blood flow? Also do you notice how Darko looks kind of slumped over and withdrawn? In his culture modeling new uniforms is considered bad form.
