There are still many NFL players who wear black, and those players have some explaining to do about it.
The NFLPA and the league’s collective bargaining agreement (CBA) prohibit players from wearing a color other than black during the regular season.
So what about players who are in the middle of their regular season and still wearing a different color?
We decided to ask the NFL, and to look at what it says about its own policy on the matter.
A black-themed shirt.
The Blackshirts NFL, or Blackshirts, was created in the aftermath of the 2014 season when the league announced it would ban players from using color other then black during their games.
The announcement was met with immediate backlash from fans, some players, and some coaches.
Players like Odell Beckham Jr. and Terrell Owens were among those who decried the move.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league would take a hard look at its policies.
The league didn’t make a big deal of its policy change until after the season.
At the time, the NFL said that players had the right to wear any color they wanted during their regular-season games.
It also said that black players shouldn’t wear a shirt that says “I love black people,” a reference to a recent viral video of a former Atlanta Falcons player, Deion Sanders, wearing a shirt featuring the phrase on the back.
At first, players didn’t have much of an issue with the policy change.
A majority of players didn.
But after a few weeks of controversy, some took to Twitter to voice their discontent.
The reaction to the policy was so negative, that in the end, the players’ union pulled the Blackshirts.
Players took to social media to vent their frustrations.
Here are the top tweets about the Black shirts.
“Black shirts should be worn during the game but no more than 5 days.
You’re just a little black dick.
#Blackshirts #Nike #Nfl #NFL.”
— Terrell W Owens (@TerrrellWO) January 27, 2019 The NFL didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on whether it had changed its policy.
The tweet above was among the more than 100 tweets that players posted in response to the league decision.
“Hey @NFL, this is your official policy that I must wear my black shirt during the season and no more.
It is my right to do so and I don’t like you saying otherwise.”
— DeionSanders (@DeionSanders) January 24, 2019 “Nike has a good one with the black color.
— Michael Irvin (@MichaelIrvin) January 25, 2019 Blackshirts aren’t the only trend in NFL uniforms this season.
The New Orleans Saints are making a major push for black uniforms, which will feature a black helmet and white pants.
The team has said that the new uniforms will be unveiled in January.
But there’s a catch: If the team doesn’t sell out, the uniforms will not be worn on game days.
The Saints have sold out their home games, and their team bus has been outfitted with black jerseys.
“They’re doing it for their fans and not for themselves,” said a fan who wished to remain anonymous.
“But at the end of the day, they’re the team.
I don, and I understand why.
They’re not like, ‘Hey, we’re going to change this’ or ‘Hey you know, this thing is just too complicated to be done.’
So I understand the need for change.”
The NFL’s policy on color isn’t exactly the first time the league has been accused of being overly conservative.
The Dallas Cowboys, for instance, have had a black-clad uniform since the 1950s.
The Philadelphia Eagles, the team’s archrival, have been in the black uniform since their inaugural season in 1970.
There are also plenty of other NFL uniforms that have been criticized for their liberal-leaning designations, like the Arizona Cardinals’ white-and-blue uniform from 2011 and the New England Patriots’ black uniform from 2012.
But the NFL has consistently resisted changes that would allow the league to more openly express itself about its policies, and the Blackshirt is the first uniform that has drawn criticism for being too conservative.
It was created by the Philadelphia Eagles after the team announced it was pulling its black jerseys and playing in a red-and and gold-colored scheme that was deemed offensive.
NFL teams are allowed to wear only white jerseys and pants in their regular seasons.
That means the league can only use the color black in the home games when it plays against opponents from the NFC West.
The Cowboys wore a different design in 2015.
That was when the Dallas Cowboys were still using white jerseys, and it wasn’t until after they won their Super Bowl that the team switched to a red and gold design.
That uniform was not made for the Super Bowl.
The Houston Texans and the Tennessee Titans wore white uniforms in the Superbowl.
