I heard on 93.7 The Fan that Art said in an interview today that the Steelers will be bringing back the gold helmet and gold numbered jerseys for one game this year. It wasn't announced when, but we will see them sometime again this year. I always liked them. Your thoughts?

I'm going to side with 93.7 The Fan because they're an official news source and that website is just a blog site.

They just reported it from what Art Rooney II said on the official Steelers site:

Re: Throwback jerseys for 2013
“We will be wearing our throwback jerseys again this year, the same jersey as last year. We’re actually discussing with the league which game we’re going to wear them. We’ll only wear them for one game this year. We sort of have to apply to the league and have them approve the game, so we’re in that process.”

I stand corrected then. Thank you for the updated info.

Have you seen the new sleeve NBA jerseys? 5 teams will wear them next year.

They look alright but the only reason they are doing it, is to sell more jerseys to fans.

I don't mind the "bumble bee" jerseys. I also don't mind the late 50s throwbacks. I would assume the bumble bees this year would be the same as 2012's but without the 80th season anniversary patch.

Throwbacks are cool and such. Mostly for marketing and revenue generation from merchandise. I would be perfectly fine if we just wore black at home and white when not at home. The Steelers have always been traditional. Why not continue it?

I agree.

While I wouldn't necessarily go out and buy one I think it is pretty neat.

I do worry the bumble bee stripes might overload the senses a bit though. :chuckle:

I love the bumble bees. They are weird, kind og ugly, but the have a certain something. I just like them...even if they look like prison stripes. The Batman uni would be my favorite throwback if they decided to go that route. Fitting due to the whole Batman-Steelers connection.

I agree the "Batman" jerseys would be neat throwbacks for the future. They were the style the team wore right before the late 60s/70s style that hasn't really been changed since then. IMO would also be cool if the Steelers did a white throwback maybe for a road game or two. Makes sense the recent ones have been black jerseys since they only wear that color at home.

Maybe it's in an effort to make Stafford and Megatron get all dizzy and forget how to score touchdowns in triple coverage. Those Rooney's are crafty bastards. :chuckle:

I'm assuming they are doing this to confuse the Lions Defensive front. I would not be surprised if our D rose to the occasion(specially if the weather is questionable and the turf is slippery), but I would be utterly shocked if all 5 of our O lineman could block Suh on more than 10 snaps.

Not that they would be able to contain that DL if healthy, but our OL are all hurt. This will be a long day. Hopefully the bumblebees will hurt their eyes.

Sorry, not a fan of 'throwbacks'. They were dumped for a reason....people didn't like them, it was time to change and to modernize. Leave 'em in the damn closet for history sake !

The line played much better than I ever expected. Whimper is looking like a decent guard and Decastro had a strong game too.

They need to use the bumblebee jerseys against Cincy. The Bungles will mistake them for prison uniforms, which will cause them to mistake the Steelers for their teammates.

I still don't like the bumble bees, but it is what it is. I liked the ones with the gold helmets and I also like the ones Zu posted.

Yes money is by far and away the reason they wear them, but I can't help but enjoy the nostalgia of the old unis.

By NFL rules the throwbacks cannot be changed for 5 years. This is year 3. I like em they are different. I really hope they bring back the gold helmet I liked it a lot.

They can't bring back the gold helmet. New NFL rules don't allow teams to use any other helmets other than their primary ones.

However, they could use a solid black one if they wanted by just removing the decals.

For a league that is totally in it for the money, it was rather surprising that they would install a "helmet rule" like that...especially for teams like the Buccaneers (creamsicle), Cowboys (white helmets), etc...where they can make a shit ton of money on the merchandise.

Don't worry. if the helmet is shown in a picture that could make an NFL "Hardest Hits" Video, they will post that pic on NFL.com as soon as the pic is downloaded.
