Numbers kind of look like an old digital clock numbers. Other than that, they're ok.

According to Nike the numbers are in a font that resembles numbers that could be cut out by a pirate sword...hence the angles. I laughed at that. Just because the idea/story is good does not mean it looks good.

Me, I'm not fan of the new color scheme. I feel sorry that the players have even darker pants now. Players have said they hate the dark pants August - November....they're hot. I have even heard that some FA's take the pant color/comfort into consideration when not joining our team (obviously other factors as well).

I do not plan on going out and buying new gear. I will when my old gear wear's out.... even though I do not like the new uniforms I will continue to support my local team by rooting for them and watching them.

This rebrand has just been a total nightmare.

I'm sure the Bucs front office has to see the backlash on social media...it is everywhere. I'd say 1 in 25 people say something positive about the look. Instead they are flaunting pointless features about the uniforms (as posted mentioned) that no one cares about.

They don't seem to understand that the Bucs had one of the best looks in the league and their color scheme, with the pewter, was seen as really special and they "owned" it in the NFL.

The new helmet was rough on me and while I still don't like it compared to the old logo and helmet, I was willing to accept it after a couple of days. Now with these uniforms, it is just terrible and so amateurish. They removed the pewter, added a horrible typeface for the numerals, have different logos on each side of the jersey (that isn't "uniform"), and the uniform has no flow to it at all. Removing pewter was really damaging to their identity, in my opinion.

I don't buy or wear team fan jerseys, but I certainly wouldn't buy this atrocity. Honestly, I am going to find some gear with the old logo on it and buy it before the new stuff hits the shelves...rather not sport the new Stone Cold/biker/Halloween skull logo if possible, too.

Very bad move on the Tampa Bay front office and if this isn't reversed soon because of public outcry, I will bet they get a new look within 5 years.

I'm seeing just the opposite: people are happy with the change (DUI-mig on the radio, Tom Jones WDAE) and most of the folks on the Bucs' message board where I post once in a while. I'm skeptical and will wait until the unveiling for season ticket holders, camp, or first game of the season. But from the pics I see, they're hideous.

I rarely see NIKE screw up uniforms - Oregon Ducks have some of the best around. Maybe they're a little ahead of their time by NFL standards.....
