    Unis -- dumping the black and adding NAVY BLUE?!

    See this tidbit from a recent espn article:

    Two weeks ago Uni Watch saluted the Royals for ditching all their ill-advised black trim and urged the Mets and Reds to do likewise. That prompted this dispatch from a reputable Reds source who prefers to remain anonymous: "The Reds' new ownership group is ready to dump black as one of the team's colors as soon as the 2006 season is over. If they didn't have so much black and red merchandise, they would have made the switch for this year. The best part? Navy blue is going to be the new third color, like in the days of old." You heard it here first, people. Now could someone please tell the Mets to get with the program already?

    I like the idea of dropping the black (we are the REDS aren't we) but what's the deal with adding navy blue? Anyone have any pics of the "days of old" that lukas is talking about?

    I hope they use the navy blue sparingly -- as more of a trim color than a complementary/third color.

    I just want continuity. I will get used to the blue, I just don't want to change every 5 years.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Dumping the black is a good thing, dunno about blue.

    This can't happen soon enough in my opinion. And to think I already ordered my cap yesterday!

    I'd like blue better than back, but what is wrong with red and white?
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    because the MLB licensing agreement needs to make some money off Cincinnati.

    I'd have never had a bad word to say about the black if they'd used it like that.

    I never minded the black but the worst was when they had a throwback night, last year I think, with Big Red Machine uniforms but black sleeves. That was so wrong.
