WHEREVER THE BUCS GO, THE ORANGE GOES WITH THEM
Published January 4, 1996
The Bucs will keep their Florida Orange based jerseys for the '96 season, team President Rich McKay told this morning's ST. PETERSBURG TIMES. McKay said NFL Properties has done some market surveys in the Tampa area to help come up with a new uniform design, but that the uncertainty of the team's stadium situation has moved a uniform change down on the club's agenda. McKay: "I don't necessarily see any resolution, at least for a little while" (ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 1/4). Bucs players had planned to "make a fashion statement" during their final home game by wearing orange pants and orange tops, but were foiled when LB Hardy Nickerson told management ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 1/2). PACKERS AND STEELERS HOT: NFL Dir of Corporate Communications Chris Widmaier said NFL Properties reports the "two markets selling the most merchandise since the end of the regular season" are playoff teams Pittsburgh and Green Bay (Bob Wolfley, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 1/4).
